TanneriteSEQUOYAH COUNTY, OK – An 8-year-old boy has died after his uncle placed an explosive on a stove and then shot it with a high-powered rifle.

According to Sequoyah County Sheriff Ron Lockhart, the boy’s 30-year-old uncle was experimenting with some Tannerite and placed some inside a metal pot on a stove in the yard.

For those of you unaware and too lazy to use Google. Tannerite is a substance sold in gun stores that’s often used for making exploding targets for firearms practice. Or taking down barns. Or blowing up feral hogs.

After the man shot the pot, metal shrapnel from the resulting explosion hit the boy and a 22-year-old man who were standing about 30 yards away. The boy was airlifted to the hospital in critical condition but would die overnight. The 22-year-old remains in the hospital.

The boy’s uncle was taken into custody on child abuse charges, but could be looking at upgraded charges since the boy has died. Another male and female are in custody on charges of providing false information during an investigation.…

Denise KroutilTROY, MO – Four people have been arrested after they came up with the genius idea to abduct a 6-year-old boy to teach him not to be so nice to strangers.

According to police, the boy’s aunt, Denise Kroutil, asked co-worker Nathan Firoved to help her family teach her nephew a lesson. She and other relatives felt that the boy was “too nice to people” and felt the only way to fix that was to abduct and terrorize him.

Firoved agreed that was a great idea, as did Elizabeth Hupp, the boy’s mother, and the boy’s grandmother, Rose Brewer. So they all put their heads together and came up with a plan that they carried out on Monday as the boy was walking home from his school bus.

That’s when Firoved lured the boy into his truck and told him he would “never see his mommy again” and that he would be “nailed to the wall of a shed.” When the boy started to cry, Firoved showed the boy a gun and told him to stop crying or he would hurt him.…

Guadalupe DiazHARRIS COUNTY, TX – A boy in Texas learned that when you mess with the bean, you mess with the whole burrito after he was physically assaulted by the mother of a kid he fought with at school.

Police say 30-year-old Guadalupe Diaz’s son got into a fight with another boy at their school that ended with both boys being suspended.

According to the Harris County Precinct 6 Constable’s Office, Diaz allegedly confronted the other boy as he walked home from school. No details on that initial confrontation, but it lead to the boy running from her and into a nearby cellphone store looking for help.

Investigators say surveillance footage from the store shows Diaz following the boy in the store where she chokes him and tries to pull him outside before fleeing the scene in a red SUV.

A warrant was issued for Diaz after the altercation, and she was picked up after an officer saw her standing at an intersection. Diaz has been charged with injury to a child under 15, a third-degree felony.…

Larry FloydOCALA, FL — Police have arrested 24-year-old Larry Floyd after they say he used a kitchen knife to try and circumcise his 20-month-old nephew.

According to police, Floyd was staying at his sister’s house where the child and his siblings were being babysat. The babysitter stated they heard the baby crying in another room and then witnessed Floyd leaving the room with a bloody knife.

The child’s father arrived home shortly after and found his son bleeding then immediately rushed him to the hospital non-life-threatening injuries to his genitals. According to Sgt. Michael Sommer, Floyd told the father he was trying to circumcise the boy with a kitchen knife.

Floyd was arrested and charged with domestic aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He has not given a reason why he decided to carry out the procedure on his nephew. Doctors say the boy is expected to recover.

By looking at Floyd’s picture, it’s hard to imagine he’s had run-ins with the law before, but he has served jail time for petty theft, drug possession and domestic battery.…

Daniel E. AdamsDunnedin, Fl – Daniel Adams and his girlfriend were arrested after police say the couple took their child to kill a dog owned by Adams’ parents, then tried covering up the killing by staging a robbery.

Adams, 34, drove to his parent’s home with the intentions of handling his parent’s dog, Daisy, a 4-year-old Labrador they felt was a danger to others. Along for the ride were his girlfriend Lauren Curran, 28, and their son.

According to the couple, Daisy had been demonstrating aggressive behavior, including snapping at another family dog, that left the couple and their son fearful of the dog. To fix that issue, they decided to kill it.

Investigators say Curran “killed the dog with an intravenous needle filled with an unknown medication.” When the deed was done, the couple tried to cover their tracks by making it appear like the death was the result of a burglary inside the home by stealing an iPad.

Their fool-proof plan to kill the dog and cover it up by stealing an Apple product – that can be tracked once turned on – was thwarted after what can no doubt be a very short investigation.…

Angela AlexieEASTPOINTE, MI – Angela Alexie is behind bars after police say the 24-year-old gave birth to a baby that she let starve to death in an unheated garage.

On Jan 14th, employees at a Roseville recycling center found a dead newborn on a sorting conveyor and contacted police. The resulting investigation lead police to Alexie, who is homeless, and she would admit to them that the baby was hers.

According to Alexie, she gave birth to the baby boy on Dec 22 at a home she had been living at, possibly with her boyfriend. Instead of calling for help or dropping the baby off at the nearest fire station, Alexie put the baby in the home’s unheated garage until it died several days later.

“She left the house and then back out to the garage to check on the baby every few hours,” said Roseville Police Detective Brad McKenzie. “Then the baby finally passed away on the 24th of December.”

McKenzie went on to say that the dead baby was placed in a recycling can by “some unknown person” weeks later.…

Isaac Seman

AUGUSTA, GA – Isaac Seman has been arrested for instructing his 10-year-old son to masturbate the family dog and telling the child to let the dog hump him while he films it.

Police were alerted after Seman’s 10-year-old child showed a Youtube video to his classmates of him re-enacting scenes from Brokeback Mountain with the family dog.

The video also showed Seman teaching his child the proper technique for stroking off the family’s pooch, then encouraging him to do the same. At one point Seman can be heard telling the child to, “Rub the rocket! Rub the rocket! Rub the rocket!”

During another point in the video he tells the child to let the dog mount him directing him to, “grab the dog’s hips and give it to him.”

Seman was charged with child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes. Sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris said that the department declined to file animal cruelty charges, and chose to file child molestation and enticing charges instead.

When Seman isn’t educating his child on the fine art of the Old-Fashioned he can be found racking up a shit-ton of criminal records.…

Krystle El KhatibSCHILLER PARK, IL — Krystle El Khatib, 29, has been charged with attempted murder for allegedly trying to murder her children with poisoned apple juice because she was angry with their father.

Prosecutors say Khatib forced her 9-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter to drink two glasses each of apple juice she had poisoned with crushed up benzodiazepine pills, an anti-anxiety drug. When her son refused to drink the juice, Khatib allegedly threatened to hit him.

Official say that after her children had drank the juice, Khatib tried to kill herself by ingesting benzodiazepine and the painkiller Norco. Thankfully she didn’t use enough of the drug to kill the kids because the 9-year-old woke up vomiting the following day. When he was unable to wake his mother, he texted his father for help.

The boy’s father took him and his sister to the hospital, leaving Khatib in the house (lol), where they were treated for poisoning before being released into his custody. Police would later find Khatib at her home and transported her to the hospital.…

On December 23, Lakeland police responded to a Golden Corral parking lot where they found 22-day-old Betsey Stephens dead inside a car.

The girl’s parents, 23-year-old Ruby Stephens and 48-year-old Roy Stephens, told police they had driven from Indiana to visit family. After checking into their hotel, the mother said she noticed the baby’s feet were cold so she put a blanket over her.

The following day, an autopsy would show Betsey had died from malnutrition through starvation – an extremely painful and prolonged death – and manner of death was homicide.
