DENVER, CO – Police have taken a 16-year-old girl into custody in connection to the death of a 7-year-old boy who was found dead on Tuesday.

Jordan Vong was reported Monday afternoon after he went missing in his neighborhood. Police searched a 20-block radius but did not find the boy until Tuesday night.

That’s when police searched the family’s home and found Vong’s body. Police are not releasing any details regarding how the boy died, but did say the body was carefully hidden.

“It was intentionally concealed, and it took some time to find it,” said Joe Montoya, division chief of investigations.

The next morning, a 16-year-old girl was taken into custody on suspicion of first-degree murder after police said they found evidence connecting her to Vong’s death.

She is being held without bond and will be formally charged on Aug. 14.

Police have not released her identity because she is a juvenile and have not stated her relationship with Vong.

Interesting to note, however, was Montoya’s description of Vong’s family when he stated they were “cooperative to a point.”

GoFundMe page has been created to help raise money for Vong’s funeral.…

AURORA, CO – A police officer fatally shot an armed homeowner who had just shot a naked intruder who came into his home and attacked his 11-year-old grandson.

There’s still a lot of unanswered questions regarding this incident, but here’s what we know so far:

Just before 1:30 a.m. Monday, 73-year-old Richard “Gary” Black was in his home with his wife, son and 11-year-old grandson when a naked man kicked in the door.

The man made a beeline for the 11-year-old who was sleeping on a couch and began strangling him. He then dragged the boy to a bathroom where he attempted to drown him in a bathtub.

The other family members were woken up by the struggle and Black tried getting the man off his grandson while his called 911. She explained to the dispatcher what was happening and gave clear descriptions of her husband and the intruder

While she was on the phone, Black had retrieved a 9mm handgun after getting hit in the head with a vase and used it to shoot the naked man twice, killing him.…

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – Police say a man dodged a bullet after he was stabbed to death by his fiancé during an argument over a proposed wedding guest.

At around 12:30 a.m Saturday, 31-year-old Jacqueline Souza called 911 to report her fiancé, 33-year Brandon Watkins, was bleeding and had dropped to the floor in their kitchen.

When emergency officials arrived they found Watkins bleeding on the floor with a bloody kitchen knife on a table nearby. Watkins was taken to the hospital but did not survive his injuries.

When questioned by investigators, Souza said she and Watkins had been at a bar celebrating their upcoming wedding and Watkins’ new job.

They got into an argument on the way when Watkins said he wanted to invite one of his ex-girlfriends to their wedding. Souza was angry about this because she felt Watkins was still in a sexual relationship with the woman.

Now here is where Souza’s story changed a couple of times. First she said after arriving home she came out of the bathroom and found Watkins on the kitchen floor with a knife in his chest — suggesting an intruder was the culprit.…

GRAND JUNCTION, CO – A woman made her husband return to prison two hours after he was mistakenly released due to a prison mix-up.

James Rynerson, 38, was being held in the Mesa County Jail on menacing, disorderly conduct and trespassing charges.

Another inmate, Marvin March, was temporarily placed in Rynerson’s cell while his own cell was under construction.

The jail’s staff neglected to note when March was moved back to his own cell.

So you can imagine the gears turning in Rynerson’s head when jail officials came to his cell — thinking he was March — to release him.

Rynerson decided not to tell them he wasn’t March and rolled with it. YOLO, right?

The jail staff didn’t bother to check his wristband or identification to confirm his identity, so not only was he released, Rynerson also collected March’s paperwork, debit card and leather jacket on the way out.

The jail didn’t realize their error until March asked them when the hell was he getting out.

But they didn’t have to search long as Rynerson turned back up at the jail two hours later.…

FORT COLLINS, CO — The body of a woman who has been missing since Dec. 4 has been found in Lory State Park and her death has been ruled a homicide.

According to police, 41-year-old Kimberlee Graves was last seen alive at her home on the night of December 4. A few days later, a friend asked police to perform a welfare check at Grave’s home after not being able to contact her.

Police arrived at Graves’ home but were unable to do much when they found her car was not there and she did not answer the door.

On Dec 10, that same friend went inside Graves’ home and found that it had been thrashed. She then contacted police again.

While police did not find any evidence that pointed to Graves being injured or in danger, they did express concerns for her safety because of the suspicious nature of her disappearance and asked the public’s help in locating her.

“There’s no evidence that would indicate injury to Kimberlee, but because of the kind of suspicious circumstances, we are asking the community’s help to locate her,” said Fort Collins police spokesperson Kate Kimble.…

AURORA, CO – A 10-year-old girl reportedly committed suicide after a fight between her and another girl was posted online.

According to the father of Ashawnty Smith, his daughter was involved in a fight with her alleged bully on school grounds last month.

“She got into her first ever fight. It was recorded by a student and sent to an app called Musical.ly,” her father said.

The video that was posted showed Ashawnty and another girl fighting on Sunrise Elementary School property while other kids watched.

The girl’s mother said the fight started after her daughter confronted the girl she claims had been bullying her daughter.

Once the fight was posted online, the girl suffered even more bullying. The bullying got so bad that, according to her parents, Ashawnty ended her own life.

“My daughter came home two weeks later and hanged herself in the closet,” her mother said.

Ashawnty was rushed to the hospital where she would spend two weeks on life support before dying Wednesday morning.

The girl’s parents believe Ashawnty was the victim of “bullycide” and are hoping that by coming forward and telling their story, they can help prevent another child from killing themselves because of bullying.…

DENVER, CO – A 16-year-old girl has been accused of killing her newborn by shoving a rock down the baby’s throat.

According to police, they received a call on Sept 8 from a woman who relayed a gruesome story involving her 16-year-old daughter, 16-year-old Alaya Dotson, and a dead baby.

She said that her daughter had been complaining about cramps that morning and that she later found her daughter laying in the backyard with a bloody blanket.

When she grabbed the blanket from her daughter, a baby fell out on to the ground. She said her daughter picked the baby up by the arm and stated “She’s dead” before dropping it on the ground and walking away.

Emergency crews arrived on the scene and transported the baby to the hospital where doctors would find a 1-inch rock lodged in the baby’s throat. The baby, named Amekah, was pronounced dead from suffocation and the death was ruled a homicide.

When interviewed, Dotson claimed she did not know she was pregnant. She said that morning she thought she had to use the bathroom and when she coughed and sneezed at the same time, the baby’s head popped out of her vagina.…

DENVER, CO — An 82-year-old man died inside a parking garage elevator after he got stuck inside and no one answered his calls for help.

Isaak Komisarchik, who suffers from dementia, was reported missing after he was last seen wearing pajamas at 2:30 p.m. July 5 at a nearby nursing facility.

Search crews posted missing person posters as they looked for the man, and Denver firefighters ended up searching five nearby ponds.

It would be almost a month later before anyone learned Komisarchik’s fate, and it was quite horrific.

Turns out that Komisarchik had wandered nearly a mile away to the Woodstream Village apartments, where he got inside an elevator attached to a parking garage that had been closed for renovations.

For reasons unknown at this time, the man was unable to get out. During an 8-minute period, the poor guy twice used the elevator’s emergency call button, but no help came.

“The pushing of the call button did trigger a notification to the elevator management company, MEI Total Elevator Solutions.…

THORNTON, CO – Police have charged a 15-year-old boy with the murder of Kiaya Campbell, the missing 10-year-old found dead Thursday evening.

An Amber Alert was issued Thursday evening after Campbell did not return home with her 15-year-old stepbrother Wednesday night. The pair had walked to a nearby shopping center, but the boy said they became separated by a rainstorm.

Police and volunteers searched for the girl all day Thursday until her body was located in a grassy area near East 128th Ave and Jasmine Street.

“My neighbor came walking up with his phone, and I’m on my deck there. He’s like, ‘What’s your address?’ And he goes, ‘I found the 10-year-old girl,'” said a man who did not want to be identified.

Officials have not released a cause of Campbell’s death, aside from the coroner confirming her death was “other than accidental.”

On Saturday, police arrested a 15-year-old boy and charged him with first-degree murder. They have not confirmed if the suspect is Campbell’s stepbrother, the son of Campbell’s father’s girlfriend, but it is looking pretty obvious that’s exactly who it is.…

BROOMFIELD, CO – Police have arrested a 25-year-old man after he was accused of murdering his 4-year-old nephew with an ax.

According to reports, the boy was being watched at his grandparents’ home so that his mother could go to nursing school. At one point the boy was on the living room couch playing on his iPad when his uncle, 25-year-old Emanuel Doll, asked him to come down to the basement.

Shortly after the boy went downstairs, the grandmother heard loud noises that she described as a “pillowcase loaded with items hitting the floor.” She asked her son what was going on and he replied “nothing” before coming back upstairs and out the back door.

That’s when the grandmother went downstairs to find her 4-year-old grandson dead on the bloody floor of the basement with an ax nearby. Doll’s father called 911 and reported that his son had just murdered his grandson with an ax.

Police arrived on the scene and found the boy in the basement with a “massive amount of trauma.” They found Doll in the backyard of his parents’ home and took him into custody.…

ARVADA, CO – A middle school teacher killed herself as police approached her home to question her about an alleged sexual relationship she was having with a student.

Police began investigating 47-year-old Gretchen Krohnfeldt after a co-worker at Drake Middle School reported seeing inappropriate behavior between Krohnfeldt and a male student.

An investigation by Arvada police and the sheriff’s office revealed the relationship allegedly began when the boy, who is now in high school, attended the middle school where Krohnfeldt taught Language Arts.

The pair reportedly met at Krohnfeldt’s home to have sex on multiple occasions. In response to the investigation, she was placed on administrative leave Monday night.

When police approached Krohnfeldt’s home on Tuesday to question her, the mother of three killed herself. Her cause of death has not been released at this time.

A statement released by Drake Middle School read:

“Our hearts go out to her family at this painful time, and I know many will feel this loss deeply. We are not sure what type of support would help the family right now, but if they convey any needs we will share that information as well.”

From the comments we get on stories like this over the years, I know some people find it hard to believe that an underage male can be a victim when they are banging a hot teacher.…

Competitive Eating Contests Leave Two Dead

April 4, 2017 at 3:03 am by  

CT & CO — Two separate eating competitions, in two different states, have led to the death of two contestants. Yay for twofers?!

In the first story, we focus on a 20-year-old coed named Caitlin Nelson….

Nelson, pictured here, was taking part in a pancake eating competition at Sacred Heart University in Connecticut Thursday, when, after scarfing down about 4 or 5 pancakes, she began choking.

First responders attempted to clear her airway but to no avail. Nelson was transported to the hospital, where she died Sunday.

It was initially believed that Nelson suffered anaphylactic shock, due to several food allergies, but it has since been revealed that food allergies did not contribute to her death.

Meanwhile, in Colorado….

Travis Malouff, 42, was trying to polish off a half pound donut *drools* in under 80 seconds at a competition hosted by Voodoo Doughnut on Sunday, when he began choking.

The Heimlich maneuver was obviously unsuccessful — the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner confirmed Monday that Malouff died from “asphyxia, due to obstruction of the airway.”

Haven’t had your fill?…
