Affadavit Alleges Starving Baby Ate Own Feces

January 11, 2010 at 10:14 am by  

Montville, Connecticut – John Berkery, 35, and Christine Berkery, 32 have both been charged with two counts of risk of injury to a minor and cruelty to persons after allegations that they intentionally starved two of Christine’s children. Christine’s 1-year-old daughter, according to the arrest affidavit, was so hungry that she ate her own feces. The little girl weighs 15lbs — the same amount she weighed at 6-months-old. Her 14-year-old daughter told investigators that when she told her mother of her little sister eating her own shit, she just laughed. The teen also stated that her step-father would make inappropriate comments about her, remarking on what a nice butt she had. But that’s not all. Christine’s two middle children are currently in foster care after one of John’s sons was accused of molesting them back in July.…

Tase The Baby!

January 5, 2010 at 11:13 am by  

In the early morning hours of New Year’s Day, cops pulled over Jorge Garcia, 39, after receiving a tip that he was armed. Along with Garcia, some other people who he had been at a party with earlier also pulled over. The crowd became hostile when officers tried to arrest Garcia who was in the road yelling obscenities before getting back into his car. When police ordered Garcia out of his vehicle, Garcia continued to act irrational and verbally abusive. One of the officers pulled out a Taser but Garcia was having none of that. He reached in the backseat and grabbed an infant that he used as a human shield. Holding the baby in front of him, he repeatedly told police to “Tase the baby.” Police were able to get the infant away from Garcia unharmed – and then two officers Tased his ass.  He is now facing child neglect charges to go along with resisting arrest. He was released from the Volusia County jail on $6,500 bond. Garcia’s wife Tangeca was also arrested for resisting arrest.…

What Happened To Dekia Mattox?

December 29, 2009 at 8:38 am by  

Milwaukee, WI Very little information is being released on this one, but what we do know is that 6-month-old Dekia Mattox is dead. She was beaten to death and supposedly stuffed under a mattress sometime early Saturday morning. The infant, who lived with her grandmother and 15-year-old mother, was left alone with two adult men Friday evening. When grandma returned home, she found Dekia under the mattress – bloodied and beaten. According to a neighbor, the child’s grandmother pounded on his door early Saturday morning, clutching the dead child in her arms. The neighbor attempted CPR, but it was already too late. It is believed that one of the adult men in the home is responsible for Dekia’s death. As of right now, four people are being held in connection with the murder: A 48-year-old woman was being held Monday on suspicion of neglecting a child, causing death. Her bail was set at $20,000. A 36-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of homicide. He was being held Monday at the county jail on $100,000 bail.…

Paris Houston Left Her Bundle Un-Loved

December 28, 2009 at 5:14 am by  

Hammond, IN For those of you who are wearing Hanes’ new no ride-up panties or briefs, you are probably safe. For those of you who are not, here is a story that just might get what undies you are wearing in a very uncomfortable situation. And for the rest who, like myself, are not wearing any underwear  at all… you all can just go ahead and gnash your teeth at this mother’s ignorant and heartless deed. On Friday, December 18, 21-year old Paris Houston dressed her 5-month old baby girl in a snow-suit. She then wrapped her daughter in a blanket, and placed her face down beneath the porch of a Hammond residence and walked away. Both sides of that porch were exposed to the 39-degree temperature and, thankfully, an alert bystander observed Houston’s callous behavior and immediately called the police.…

Kyra Gates Is A Real Bad-Ass

December 17, 2009 at 7:37 am by  

Omaha, NEI gotta tell ya, I visited Kyra Gates’ Myspace profile to see if could find anything of value to add to this story – I was there for about two minutes, tops. I am now partially blind and mostly stupid. But, because I am a saintly woman and hope to spare you from the seizure inducing background, I put my mad copy and paste skillz to work and give you this, from her About Me section – ” i feel that im a very good mother and a devoted friend. i love to party and get drunk as possible. if you like what ur hearing so far log on to me.” Now, let’s think about that first sentence for a minute, shall we? If, indeed, she were a ‘very good mother’, chances are her mug wouldn’t be gracing our awesome website. Right? Right. Kyra is here today because she is accused of punching her 10-month-old baby in the face, causing the child’s nose to bleed. When the cops arrived on scene, Kyra refused to hand over the bloodied baby.…

Greensboro, NC – Tekia Ritter, 23, and Lashawn Murray, 25, are in the middle of a custody battle over their 11-week-old baby girl, S’riyah Lashawn Robinson. When I think of a “custody battle“, I usually think of it as both parents wanting the child. That may be the case in this battle, but on Thursday night, it sure wasn’t. Ritter tracked down her baby daddy and demanded that he take his turn in the care of little S’riyah. He refused. She placed the baby (in her car seat) and some of her belongings on the hood of Murray’s car and drove off. Murray knew it wasn’t safe to drive with a baby on the hood so he placed the baby on the pavement before he too drove off. Thinking the baby momma might not have too much common sense, Murray called 911 to report which parking space was occupied by a baby. Police found S’riyah still strapped into her car seat and turned her over to social services. She’s not charged for parking without a permit for those 30 minutes.…

Indianapolis, IN – Speaking of tools, here’s another one. Donald Crawford made a complete ass of himself early Tuesday morning when he was forced to call 911 because he was so shit-faced he couldn’t find his fully loaded 18-wheeler. Stupid, yes – but, that’s not what earned him a spot here on the Dreamin’ Demon. No – he rightfully earned his spot because he left his 5-year-old son alone in said semi, in a high-crime area with the doors unlocked and keys in the ignition, so he could sneak away for a drink and a few lap dances. And, the asshat was booted from the strip club because he didn’t pay for those lap dances. Ahhhh – you gotta love the smell of fail first thing in the morning. Surveillance video shows Crawford walking into the Sassy Kats strip club and getting a drink before heading to the back of the club where he received three private lap dances. About 24 minutes later, he was escorted out by a bouncer.…

Michael Monahan Is A Tool

November 28, 2009 at 8:22 am by  

Fall River, MA – On Tuesday afternoon, an employee at a sailing shop glanced out the window and noticed a guy parked outside, the trunk of his ’98 Grand Am open, with two small kids in the trunk and “he’s changing their clothes.” The witness told police he thought it was “kind of odd” that the children were naked and being changed in the trunk of a vehicle on such a wet, drizzly, day. A short time later the man, 35-year-old Michael Monahan, walked into the store –  sans kiddos. When the witness asked him where the kids were, Monahan told him that he had left the kids in the car. The witness walked outside to take a peek inside the car windows, but didn’t see the kids. After the witness repeatedly questioned Monahan about the kids whereabouts, Monahan produced a set of keys, opened up the trunk, and voilá! There they were! One of the tots, age 3, was asleep and the other one, age 6, was crying.…

Garold and Sherry McMillian Suck At Parenting

November 17, 2009 at 9:47 am by  

Owasso, OK – Police were called to the home of Garold and Sherry McMillian over the weekend after neighbors reported seeing the couple’s two adopted teens standing outside in the cold, wet, drizzle. When the children were found at 11:00 Saturday evening,  temps were reported to be in the low 50’s – a 14-year-old girl was found shivering and shoeless, her 15-year-old brother was trying to keep warm and dry in an open air fort in the backyard. Police learned the children were asked to leave the home at about 4:00 that afternoon, when their asstastic parents took their two bio-children out for dinner and a movie. The house was locked up tight and the teen girl told officers that this was a regular occurrence. Officers noted the couple’s pet had access to food, water, and a warm environment, but their non-bio kids were left to soak and starve in the rain for 5-6 hours. Nice. …

Neglecting in the Name of God

November 16, 2009 at 3:22 pm by  

“Faith healing.” A goddamn oxymoron, if you ask me. Over the last couple of decades, it is estimated that hundreds of children have met their demise due to such practices. Despite this, as many as 30 states have legislation exempting parents who neglect their children by failing to seek medical treatment for them on religious grounds. This legislation, much of which was instituted back in the 1970s, has been tested in recent years, resulting in a handful of states repealing the laws and others yet scaling it back in cases of criminal mistreatment and manslaughter. But these are empty gestures if recent sentencing in faith healing cases is any measure.…

Christian Woods Threw Her Daughter In The Trash

October 14, 2009 at 1:51 pm by  

PENSACOLA, Florida – Christian Woods, 21, called cops to tell them her 18-month-old daughter was missing. The police followed all the leads she gave them, but were unable to find Myleahya. Investigators went to Woods’ home and found a deplorable conditions; the home had no electricity or running water and was infested with roaches.

Carson City, Nevada – Authorities in Carson City were alerted to a case of possible child abuse by the VA Hospital in Reno on Saturday –  personnel there suggested that police get in contact with one Robert Williams. Robert had been in the hospital the day before with a couple of young boys who “looked pretty beat up.” When officers made contact with Robert, they discovered two boys being kept locked inside a small bedroom. “Inside the bedroom was a bunk bed where two small boys were lying,” the officer wrote. “The boys, age 5 and 3, were lying on the top bunk bed sharing a blanket. Located on the floor were two toddler potty chairs which were full of urine. The windows to the bedroom were boarded up from the inside.” The 5-year-old was reluctant to come out from underneath the blanket, and the 3-year-old wouldn’t wake up. The older boy was allegedly sportin’ a couple of black eyes. The younger had “a large abrasion – covering the majority of his face,” similar to road rash.…
