VENTNOR, NJ – A woman confessed to bludgeoning her mother and grandmother to death in their condo on July 7th.

Heather Barbera, 42, evidently wanted to live it up and have a rip-roaring time in Atlantic City and later in Manhattan.

However, she needed a way to fund her luxurious desires.

So, according to reports, Barbera used a nightstick to beat her mom and granny to death. She then took their cash and credit cards before hightailing it to Atlantic City.

The bodies of the two women – 67-year-old Michelle Gordon and 81-year-old Elaine Rosen – were discovered by Barbera’s uncle. He’d stopped by the condo on July 8th to see why they were not answering his calls.

“It was unimaginable,” he said. “It was horrible, they were both on the floor. There was blood all over. I was hoping they were alive, even though they were dead.”

Police didn’t have a hard time finding Barbera as she was leaving a credit card trail all over Manhattan as she stayed in a luxury hotel and enjoyed a shopping spree as she walked toward Times Square.…

CHEHALIS, WA – Two brothers have been accused of raping and murdering a 16-year-old boy.

This is an odd one as a motive behind the brothers’ actions hasn’t been made clear. But here’s the details so far:

Last week, 16-year-old Benjamin Eastman was reported missing by his father. During their search for the teen, investigators would find his body buried in a shallow grave.

A medical examination would rule Eastman died of blunt-force trauma.

As the discovery was making the news, police were asking for help locating Eastman’s closest friend, 16-year-old Benito Marquez and Benito’s brother, 21-year-old Jonathan Adamson.

The brothers were reportedly the last to see Eastman and seemed to have left the area.

Once the brothers were located and questioned by police, they began singing — especially when cell phone records show they lured Eastman into the woods for a camping trip but actually planned to assault him.

Adamson allegedly told detectives that once in the woods, he and his younger brother physically assaulted Eastman for 20-45 minutes. Adamson estimated they kicked Eastman more than 100 times.…

KALAMAZOO, MI – Police have arrested a woman after they say she beat her 5-month-old son to death.

In late January, 21-year-old Jennifer Mohler was unable to wake up her 5-month-old son. She placed him back into his bassinet to tend to the boy’s twin brother.

She then notified family members in the home that her son “didn’t look right” and they ended up calling for an ambulance.

After being taken to the hospital, the boy was having seizures, had bleeding on the brain, retinal hemorrhaging, facial bruising and whiplash trauma.

The injuries were listed as “non-accidental trauma” and police were notified.

When questioned, Mohler admitted she hit both children with an open hand and hitting one in the head with an eyeglass container. She also admitted to dropping them both into their bassinets.

A judge ordered both children be removed from Mohler’s custody. Unfortunately, the injured infant died from his injuries in February.

Mohler was subsequently charged with murder and first-degree child abuse. She’s facing life behind bars if convicted on the charges.…

LAKELAND, FL — Police have charged a couple with the murder of the man’s 6-year-old daughter.

Last week, 26-year-old Larry Golden Jr. called 911 to report he had found his 6-year-old daughter, Honesty Curry, unresponsive in her bed.

When paramedics arrived at Golden’s apartment they found Honesty lying unresponsive on the living room floor.

Honesty was rushed to the hospital where doctors would find the girl suffering from bruises and lacerations all over her body. Even worse, she had severe skull damage and adult bite marks on her inner thigh.

To give you an idea on just how severe the girl’s skull damage was, one crack went from one ear, over her head, to the other. Another fracture penetrated the thickest area of her skull.

Despite best efforts to save Honesty, the girl would die two days later.

When questioned about the girl’s injuries, Golden and his live-in girlfriend, 21-year-old Breonna Wren, claimed the injuries were self-inflicted. They said Honesty purposefully slammed her head into a wall.

When they were told there was no way that could cause all the injuries the girl had suffered, Wren admitted to striking Honesty with a belt and said that Golden hit his daughter with an object in the kitchen.…

BURLINGTON, VT – A fight between two men on a bridge ended with one of them falling off the bridge and the other facing murder charges.

Jared Streeter and Joshua Granger, both 20, have had a long-running rivalry that hinged on them both being interested int he same woman.

The two men decided to settle things with an arranged fight on Saturday at the Blue Bridge.

The bridge is a railroad span over the Winooski River that is commonly traveled on foot as a shortcut between Burlington and Winooski.

The fight had its own set of rules, the main one being that no weapons would be allowed. The two men showed up, along with a small crowd, and the fight began.

According to witness statements, the crowd advanced toward the fight, causing the two men to back up toward the bridge.

At some point, Streeter got knocked out and hit his head on a metal railing. He reportedly was “sleeping for a good two seconds.”

Sleeter managed to get back up and resume fighting but he was visibly groggy.…

PEARL RIVER, LA – A 20-year-old woman has been accused of beating a 46-year-old man to death who was recovering from brain tumor surgery.

While people were out enjoying themselves on the Pearl River on Saturday, an argument started between two large groups at a sandbar.

Apparently, the disagreement was over one group throwing bottles into the river and the other group telling them to stop.

Jeffrey Howell, 46, was a part of the latter group. He had recently survived a brain tumor surgery and still had the staples in his head.

The argument turned physical and Howell ended up dead from blunt-force trauma to the head. An autopsy would later reveal Howell had been hit near the scar from his surgery.

“If you cup your hand behind your left ear, that’s where the incision was,” said St. Tammany Coroner Dr. Charles Preston.

After talking with witnesses at the scene, 20-year-old Blaine Manalle was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. She’s currently in the St Tammany Parish Jail with a $250,000 bond.…

SENECA FALLS, NY – A couple has been jailed after a 3-year-old boy was beaten so badly that he is currently on life support with no brain activity.

Police responded to the apartment of Donald and Alison Bovio on Saturday after Donald called to report his stepson had fallen down the stairs.

First-responders would find the boy lying unconscious on the kitchen floor with substantial trauma to his head and body.

The boy was airlifted to the hospital in critical condition where he’s currently on life support after suffering a brain hemorrhage. He’s unable to breathe on his own and is showing no brain activity.

Doctors would determine the injuries the boy had suffered were not the result of falling down stairs, but rather an assault.

After questioning the couple, and based on information from the doctors who examined the boy, police arrested the couple on charges of assault in the first degree.

Court documents say the couple allegedly beat the boy “with a belt numerous times and intentionally caused his head to strike a hard floor surface.”

Additional charges are expected to be filed when the couple is indicted on Thursday.…

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Police have started investigating an incident in which a 1-year-old had his face pummeled after his mother dropped him off at his daycare.

According to the boy’s mother, Tiffany, she received a phone call Monday from the Kiddiegarden daycare a few hours after dropping off her baby and his older sibling.

When she arrived at the daycare she said she could hear her baby, Jesse, screaming. She would find that her baby had cuts to his face and that both of his eyes and lips were swollen.

Outraged, the woman admits she lashed out in anger and punched the 22-year-old daycare worker who was supposed to be looking after the children.

Baby Jesse was taken to the hospital to have his injuries treated and to make sure he isn’t suffering from injuries that could cause long-term damage.

Tiffany said the worker told her a 2-year-old girl was responsible for the baby’s injuries. A claim that Tiffany, as well as the accused 2-year-old girl, find hard to believe.

“It’s no way a baby, a 2-year-old and that baby was small and she didn’t look like she was the violent type and her mom said she wasn’t the violent type and her mom said scratches her baby might do but when seen that picture she started crying and said her baby wouldn’t do anything like that,” Tiffany said.…

PINE RIDGE, SD – A 30-year-old woman in South Dakota will plead guilty to beating her toddler to death after the boy wet the bed.

We’ve first reported on 30-year-old Katrina Shangreaux back in 2016 when she was arrested and charged with the murder of 2-year-old Kylen Shangreaux.

Shangreaux has now admitted to the murder in a written statement. In the document, Shangreaux admits she was drunk and on drugs when she got mad at her son for wetting the bed.

She says on top of the bed wetting her son “gave her a sideways look” and called her “Angie,” the name of the boy’s paternal aunt who had cared for him the year prior before. A month before the boy’s murder, Shangreaux had regained custody of her son after winning a June 2016 custody battle.

IOn response to the boy’s alleged actions, Shangreaux hit the child multiple times with her hands and a belt, threw him to the ground, kicked him in the abdomen and head, and bit him several times – including biting his genitals.…

CHARLESTON, SC – A 37-year-old man recently released from prison has been accused of kidnapping and raping a 4-year-old girl after beating and raping the girl’s mother.

On February 13, Brittany Todd was returning home with her 4-year-old daughter after taking two other children to school. What she didn’t know was that she was being watched.

Thomas Lawton Evans Jr., out of prison for only two weeks, had picked her at random and had followed her home.

Evans beat and raped Todd before tying her up and leaving the home with her daughter, Hiedi.

Police did not find the woman until later that evening after her kids’ school called to report she never came to pick up her children. Todd was taken to the hospital suffering from a brain bleed and facial fractures.

The following day, Evans and the girl were discovered in Riverside, Alabama after railroad workers found them both sleeping in a car in the woods near a railroad track.

When police arrived to investigate, Evans handed Hiedi to a police officer and then sped off.…

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC – Police have charged a man with the beating deaths of his grandparents, aunt, and his 15-year-old cousin.

Police have charged 22-year-old Lovequawn Scott four counts of murder after his grandfather, Joseph Manigault, 72; his grandmother, Rose Manigault, 69; his aunt, Kenya Manigault, 42; and his cousin, Faith Manigault, 15, were all found dead inside a home on Saturday.

Police were called to the home after a relative found the bloody bodies of Joseph and another female inside the garage.

Officers took Scott into custody after finding him outside the home with blood on his hands and clothing.

Once inside the home, officers found the dead bodies of two females in a bedroom. The coroner’s office stated all of the victims appeared to have been beaten to death, but they’ve ordered autopsies to get more information.

Relatives said they have no idea what would have led Scott to kill members of his own family, especially his grandparents.

According to relatives, Scott’s grandparents had raised him and put him through college at both The Citadel and Coastal Carolina University.…

MARDELA SPRINGS, MD — A couple have been arrested and accused of beating three children in their custody and forcing them to eat dog feces.

On Friday, someone tipped off police about the possible abuse of three children — ages 8, 9 and 10 — at the home of 29-year-old Amanda Wright and her live-in girlfriend 25-year-old Besline Joseph.

By that night, the three children were taken from the home and the couple was arrested.

According to investigators, the abuse began as early as May of last year and included the women beating the children with their hands, extension cords, belts, sticks, a stun gun and other objects.

The children were rarely let outside and mostly kept locked inside a closet or the basement of the home. Police say the children were mainly fed bread and water,  and the occasional dog turd.

“They were also starved, being fed a diet of only bread and water and some oatmeal from time to time again. Investigators learned they were forced to eat dog feces on occasion,” said Maj.…
