SPOKANE, WA – Police have arrested a man after he beat the ever-living crap out of a toddler who made the grave mistake of interrupting him as he played a video game.

Police were called to Sacred Heart on Sunday after 22-year-old Brandon Oquendo brought in his girlfriend’s daughter who was suffering from a seizure.

When hospital staff examined the 21-month-old girl, they found she had multiple life-threatening injuries from suspected abuse, so they called police.

According to court documents, these injuries included two brain bleeds, a collapsed lung, bruises on her face, and hand size bruises on the front of both hips and above her privates.

When police interviewed the girl’s mother, she told them that Oquendo was babysitting the girl while she was at work. She said he had called her at work to inform her that her daughter was having a seizure.

She added that she recently confronted Oquendo over an increasing amount of bruises showing up on her daughter, and that he’d explained they were the result of the girl rough-housing with his son.…

MEMPHIS, TN — Police say 10-year-old boy fatally stabbed himself in the chest while his mother was beating him with an extension cord.

Police were called to an apartment last Saturday where they found 10-year-old Jaheim McKinzie suffering from a self-inflicted stab wound to the chest.

He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead an hour later.

His mother, Robin McKinzie, told police that she was disciplining her son by beating him with an extension cord and choking him when he got angry and grabbed a knife from the kitchen that he used to stab himself in the chest.

Neighbor say shortly before McKinzie ran outside screaming for help, she had called Jaheim inside after he was witnessed throwing rocks at the window of a vacant apartment unit.

McKinzie was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse. She is currently being held in jail on $100,000 bond. Police say their investigation is ongoing and those charges could change.

McKinzie’s family is asking that people not rush to judgment, claiming they boy had known mental health issues and had been acting out in school recently.…

ALTA VISTA, IA – An Alta Vista couple has been charged with murder after the maggot-riddled body of their severely neglected 4-month-old child was found in a baby swing at the family’s apartment in Iowa.

Zachary Paul Koehn, 28, and his girlfriend, 20-year-old Cheyanne Renae Harris, had the bracelets slapped on this past Wednesday when they were charged with first-degree murder and child endangerment.

According to court records, their son, Sterling Daniel Koehn, was found dead Aug. 30 after Zachary Koehn called 911 requesting an ambulance come to the couple’s home.

When Chickasaw County sheriff’s deputies and medics arrived, they found the deceased infant sitting in a powered baby swing, according to the criminal complaints. Sterling was found in a bedroom separate from where Koehn, Harris and their older child slept.

No report of whether the room had an Air Wick, though autopsy results suggest it must’ve been getting pretty ripe in there.

When deputies first arrived at the couple’s apartment, Koehn reportedly told them that Harris had fed Sterling that morning and, “he was fine.”

Koehn claimed that when Harris checked on their son a few hours later, he had died, according to the complaint.…

PENSACOLA, FL – An 8-year-old girl was killed after her 325-pound cousin sat on her for misbehaving.

Last Saturday, 69-year-old Grace Smith was having some issues disciplining her daughter, 8-year-old Dericka Lindsay.

Deciding she needed some help, Smith called the girl’s cousin, 64-year-old Veronica Posey, for some backup.

When Posey came over, she hit Lindsay with a ruler and metal pipe before the girl ran to an armchair.

Seizing the opportunity to calm the child down while exerting little to no effort, Posey held the girl on the chair by plopping her fat ass on top of her.

After about 10 minutes, the girl complained from underneath her cousin’s mud flaps that she could not breathe. Posey stayed on top of the girl for another two minutes before getting up and realizing Lindsay was not breathing.

Posey called 911 and performed CPR until paramedics arrived, but it was too late — the poor girl would be pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police arrested Posey and charged her with homicide and cruelty toward a child.…

LAKE COUNTY, FL – Police have accused a Florida man of drowning his 17-month-old daughter in a bathtub.

According to reports, Ocala police received a call Monday morning from the child’s mother who said that her husband had called her at work claiming to have drowned their daughter.

When police arrived at the home they had to force their way inside. They did not find the woman’s husband, 38-year-old Jeremy Main, inside the home but did find the couple’s daughter dead in a bathtub.

Main would end up turning himself in at a police substation. He was reportedly covered in blood from trying to harm himself in some way. Main was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.

According to the arrest affidavit, Main killed his baby because his wife was divorcing him. He also reportedly told deputies that he has “ruined his life”.

“For someone to be able to do something like that is just mind-boggling,” said Lake County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Fred Jones. “Twenty years in this job, and it’s hard to believe a person can lose their humanity and do something like this.”

Two teen children also live in the home, but were at school at the time of the incident.…

SAN ANTONIO, TX – A woman charged in her daughter’s death told police she didn’t call 911 for her dying daughter because her cell phone was low on minutes.

According to reports, 34-year-old Jessica Briones brought her 4-year-old daughter, Olivia, to a San Antonio police substation with severe head trauma.

She told officers that her daughter fell and hit her head four days ago but was now vomiting and would not wake up.

When asked why didn’t she call 911 immediately, Briones allegedly stated she couldn’t find her cell phone and that she was low on minutes.

Olivia would die the next day at the hospital, where doctors would find the girl had suffered injuries that were not consistent with a fall.

Along with multiple brain bleeds and severe brain swelling, Olivia also had a swollen nose, eight scars on the back of her head, a black eye, deflated left lung, a fractured vertebrae, a swollen wrist and two swollen arms, a bruised ankle and detached tissue in her upper lip from her gums.…

BRUSSELS – Police in Belgium believe a woman killed her two-year-old daughter by burning her alive on a charcoal grill.

On Sunday evening in the town of Zemst, neighbors called police after hearing a little girl screaming from inside a garage as smoke came from under the garage door.

When police arrived at the home, they found a 27-year-old woman cooking the body of her 2-year-old daughter on a charcoal grill. There was no saving the girl, as most of her body had already been fully charred.

“We both had to burn,” the woman told the arriving officers. “That was the only way we could go to heaven together.”

She also stated that the only way for a person’s soul to go to heaven was for their body to be cremated.

The mother was taken to the hospital due to severe carbon monoxide poisoning. She was later arrested in the hospital on suspicion of murder.

An autopsy on the girl has already been performed, so authorities know if the poor girl was burned alive, but the results of the report have not been made public at this time.…

JASPER, FL – Police have arrested a man who allegedly left his toddler outside overnight as Irma passed through the city.

The mother of the 19-month-old called police Sunday night to report her daughter was missing.

She said the girl’s father, 36-year-old Angelo Mitchell, left the house with the girl but returned a couple of hours later without her.

When questioned by police, an intoxicated Mitchell admitted he had been watching his daughter and had been drinking, but denied ever taking the girl out of the house. He said the girl was safe and probably with a family friend.

With Irma passing through the city, police dogs had problems locating the missing girl’s scent in the storm. It wouldn’t be until the next day that a neighbor found the girl lying in the yard of a home 400 to 500 yards away.

She was alive ( a rarity for this site) but her skin appeared purple and was covered in scratches and bug bites. Authorities believe the girl was left exposed to the storm’s rain and wind gusts the entire night.…

WICHITA, KS – A couple have been arrested after the woman’s 3-year-old boy was found decomposing inside a block of concrete.

Miranda Miller, 36, and her boyfriend Stephen Bodine, 40, have been arrested after their ex-landlord found a cement structure inside the house they were evicted from that had a child’s body decomposing inside it.

Reports state that a landlord cleaning his property stumbled on what looked like a large cement coffin with a foul-smelling odor coming from it. He alerted police who had to bring in a forklift to remove it from the house.

Inside they would find the remains of what is, more than likely, 3-year-old Evan Brewer — who has been missing since July.

In March, Carlo Brewer contacted the Department of Children and Families claiming that his son was being abused by Miller. DCF opened an investigation and on July 6, the court had awarded a protection of abuse order for Carlo on his behalf of his son.

Incidentally, that is last day Evan was ever seen and Brewer has been trying to locate Evan ever since.…

PHOENIX, AZ – This is a wonderful update to a story I first reported on back in 2011. One of the women responsible for the death of 10-year-old Ame Deal was just handed the death sentence.

For those of you who may not know of Ame and her horrific death, she was one of a dozen children living in a three-bedroom house with 10 adults.

These adults included Ame’s father, David Deal, her grandmother, Judith Deal, her aunt and legal guardian, Cynthia Stoltzmann,  Stoltzmann’s daughter, Sammantha, and Sammantha’s husband, John Allen.

If you want to get a more in-depth overview of Ame’s fucked up family dynamics, I suggest checking out the Wikipedia article on her murder. Honestly, it’s too much of a mess for me to type out and not the point of this article.

Anyway, all of the kids in the home were abused and neglected in some fashion, but Ame reportedly took the brunt of it. She was beaten, forced to crush aluminum cans barefoot, drink hot sauce, and was even once forced to eat dog shit.…

UPPER MARLBORO, MD – A 32-year-old Maryland man has plead guilty to punching his 2-month-old son to death then driving him around in his hearse for two days before burying him in the woods.

According to officials, 32-year-old Antione Petty is one impatient motherfucker. They say he became so upset over his baby’s crying last September that he punched him in the face until he was dead.

With blood streaming from his dead son’s nose and mouth, this clown abortion then tossed the boy’s dead body in the back of his 1998 Hearse.

He left him there for at least 24 hours before he and the boy’s mother, 24-year-old Geneice Petty, drove to a wooded area near Parkdale High School and buried him in a shallow grave.

The boy’s body remained there for a month before family members filed a formal missing person report. After being questioned, the couple lead detectives to the baby’s body.

On Wednesday, Petty pleaded guilty to first-degree child abuse resulting in the death of his son.…

CHINLE, AZ – The 23-year-old woman who killed her 17-month-old daughter by stranding her in the desert will spend the next 20 years in prison.

Last September, Ashley Attson placed her daughter in a stroller, then pushed her into the desert on the Navajo Reservation. Attson left the poor girl there for four days and nights.

During those days  and nights that her daughter died alone in an absolutely horrendous fashion, Attson stayed busy.

“Over the next few days, she met friends for ice cream and posted pictures of herself on Facebook,” according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona. “When she returned, the child was dead.”

Two days after finding her daughter dead, Attson returned and buried the girl’s body in an animal hole.

What’s worse is that Attson only gained custody of the girl two months before she killed her. Her daughter had been in the care of tribal social services for most of her life after being born with meth in her system.

While handing her a 20 year prison sentence, Judge Campbell called the girl’s death an “intentional, cold-hearted, horrendous killing of an innocent child.”…
