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?…

FORT WORTH, TX – A man who claimed he came home to find his wife and infant son dead with their throats slit has been arrested and charged with their murder.

Earlier this month, 35-year-old David Vandewege called 911 to report he had come home from work to find his wife, Shanna Vandewege, and their 3-month-old son, Diederik, dead.

Police arrived and found both victims in their beds with their throats slits, and their deaths were ruled homicides. Vandewege was interviewed by detectives on two occasions, but had stopped communicating with investigators.

On Wednesday, police in Glenwood Springs were called by someone who told them Vandewege was headed to Las Vegas and trying to escape the authorities. Vandewege was stopped by a cop shortly after.

Vandewege told the officer that he was headed to Las Vegas. He said it had been a long week and that his wife and kid had been recently murdered. According to the police report, Vandewege showed no emotion when he relayed this information.

When the officer asked why he was not wearing a wedding band, Vandewege stated the ring was in his pocket “along with numerous condoms.”

The officer contacted Fort Worth police to verify Vandewege’s claims and learned he hadn’t been ruled out as a suspect in his wife and child’s murder, had fled the area, and had stopped talking to investigators.…

swimming poolPUEBLO, CO – Two sisters — ages 3 and 5 — and their 17-year-old female baby sitter drowned in a mobile home park swimming pool Monday afternoon.

Police responded to the Pueblo Grande Village mobile home park shortly after 2 p.m. yesterday after receiving a call about a drowning.

“Upon arrival, officers located three individuals who appeared to have drown in a swimming pool,” police said in a news release.

Despite attempting CPR on 3-year-old Azucena Gandarilla; her 6-year-old sister Amaya Gandarilla; and their 17-year-old baby sitter, Joo Lee, all three would later be pronounced dead by the Pueblo County Coroner’s Office.

Residents say the pool is normally packed with kids in the summertime and ranges from 2 to 8 feet deep. There are also signs posted that warn people to swim at their own risk as there are no lifeguards at the pool.

According to Capt. Joe Garcia of the Pueblo Police Department, an investigation into the drownings is ongoing but no foul play is suspected.

“I think it’s just a horrible tragedy,” Garcia said.…

Shanna GossettGRAND JUNCTION, CO – Police say 29-year-old Shanna Gossett kept her niece strapped in a high chair in a closet for two weeks before slamming the girl’s head into a wall, killing her.

The more details that come out about this case, the more messed up it gets. As usual with these child abuse stories, if I am writing it up, then you know it’s a bad one.

On March 17, medical crews responded to a 911 call regarding an unresponsive child. When they arrived at the home they found 3-year-old Bethannie Johnson lying in the middle of the living room floor unresponsive.

Police and paramedics noted Bethannie was severely bruised on her head, abdomen and legs. She also had dried blood in her airway that was indicative of past injuries.

Paramedics managed to get the girl breathing again, but she would be pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital. An autopsy found she had multiple internal and external head injuries and concluded she died of blunt force trauma.

When questioned by detectives, Gosset said she was Bethannie’s legal guardian and that she stays at the address because she provides child care for the person who lives there.…
