WASHINGTON, DC – One week after getting engaged, a 35-year-old woman was stabbed to death in a random attack at a Washington, DC intersection.

The incident happened Tuesday evening as Wendy Martinez, an avid runner, was out for her routine jog. Just before 8 p.m. Martinez was attacked by an unknown male with a knife at 11th and O streets, Northwest.

Bleeding profusely from her neck, Martinez managed to stumble into a nearby Chinese restaurant for help. Surveillance footage shows her running inside the restaurant and seemed to be trying to alert customers about her attacker outside.

Some of the patrons ran out while others tried tending to the woman’s wounds until paramedics arrived. Unfortunately nothing could be done to save her and she would die from her injuries.

Authorities are now asking for the public’s help in identifying the man they say is responsible, described as a black male wearing a mustard-colored shirt, dark-colored pants, white socks and sandals.

He fled heading southbound on the 1400 block of 11th Street, NW, after attacking Martinez.…

NORWELL, MA – A 48-year-old father has been put back in jail after a second child came forward and accused the former youth football coach of raping them.

This hasn’t been a good year for Derek Sheehan. The alleged pedophile and child rapist was arrested in August after a child younger than 14 reported that the man had indecently assaulted them in August 2017.

Police searched Sheehan’s house and took away multiple electronic devices, including Sheehan’s iPhone and an external hard drive.

Sheehan was arrested and initially charged with indecent assault and battery on a child under 14 and intimidating a witness. He pleaded not guilty and was released after paying his bail and ordered to wear a GPS-monitoring device until his next court appearance.

But four days later Sheehan found himself back before a judge after a man came to the Norwell police station to report that his 13-year-old son had been sexually assaulted by Sheehan.

By this time investigators found that Sheehan’s iPhone contained multiple pornographic images of children, including some in which they appeared to be sleeping.…

AIMES, IA – Police have accused a 22-year-old homeless man of murdering an Iowa State University student whose body was found in a golf course pond.

On Monday morning police were called to Coldwater Golf Links after some golfers discovered an abandoned golf bag.

A short time later, police would find the body of a female in a pond at the golf course. She was identified as 22-year-old Celia Barquin Arozamena, a student at Iowa State University and Iowa State Female Athlete of the year.

Barquin Arozamena, who was due to graduate with a degree in civil engineering, had suffered stab wounds to her upper torso, head, and neck.

While on the scene, investigators were approached by a man walking on a nearby trail who asked, “what did he do to her?”

When asked to clarify, the man told police that he had been staying with a man in a nearby homeless camp who had been expressing a desire to “rape and kill a woman.”

Police went to the homeless camp and found the man, identified as 22-year-old Collin Daniel Richards, and noticed he had several fresh scratches on his face and that he was trying to conceal a gash on one of his hands.…

ST ALBANS, WV – Police have arrested a man after he huffed spray paint then beat his mother over the head with a spatula.

Glenn Allen Casdorph loves paint. His mother? Maybe not so much.

About 10:45 PM last Thursday, September 13th, police in St. Albans, West Virginia were dispatched to a residence in reference to a domestic incident involving injuries.

That’s cop-speak for “Glenn’s up to his old tricks again.”

When they arrived, officers found Glenn Allen Casdorph, 30, AKA “Casdorph the Destroyer,” AKA “Squirrel,” sitting on a bench in the front yard, brandishing a steel bar and besmeared with copious amounts of silver spray-paint.

It is a well-known fact to connoisseurs of spray paint that the silver and gold varietals have both the best bouquet and the best buzz. And Casdorph the Destroyer is no novice when it comes to huffing paint.

Having dealt with Casdorph multiple times in relation to his predilection for solvent abuse, his condition was probably not surprising to responding officers. And given his history of responding violently to anyone who attempted to curtail his illicit love of fluorocarbons, what they found in the house probably didn’t surprise them either.…

LAKE CITY, FL – An inmate at Columbia Correctional Institution murdered his cellmate, gouged out his eyes, then strolled to breakfast with the victim’s ear on a necklace.

The incident happened early Thursday inside a cell being shared by 58-year-old Larry Mark and another man who has not been identified.

Mark was reportedly aggravating his cellmate to the point that his cellmate strangled him to death. But the cellmate wasn’t done.

After killing Mark, the man gouged out Mark’s eyeballs and placed them in a cup. He reportedly told other inmates he planned to eat them later.

Mark’s body was not discovered until after his killer showed up for breakfast with other inmates and began showing off Mark’s ear that he had fashioned into a stylish necklace.

Unconfirmed reports state Mark’s killer had recently been transferred to Columbia from Florida State Prison where he had been on Death Row.

Obviously, I don’t know Mark so I can’t comment on his character or if he deserved the death he got. However, he was serving a life sentence for beating a cab driver’s skull in for $35 and a wedding ring.…

GILBERT, AZ – A man in Arizona has been accused of faking a disability to trick caregivers into scrubbing his genitals.

Something stinks in the state of Arizona. Just ask Paul Anthony Menchaca.

You see, Menchaca is a 30-year-old with Down Syndrome. Sometimes he soils himself. He can’t help it.

And when he has an accident, he needs help cleaning up. And bathing his genitals. And some discipline.

He’s what they call a “special needs adult.”

Feeling bad for Menchaca yet? Well, don’t.

An individual named Amy, who represented herself as Menchaca’s mother, hired a caregiver off of CareLinx.com in early May to give the Gilbert, Arizona man the help that he needed.

Communicating only by text, Amy arranged for the caregiver to assist Menchaca on 30 separate occasions at various locations in Gilbert and nearby Chandler, but (tellingly) never at his home.

The caregiver was always paid in cash by Menchaca.

Amy also instructed the caregiver to punish Menchaca when he had an accident “by putting him in timeout and taking away his privileges.”

And those genitals had to be squeaky-clean.…

ECTOR COUNTY, TX – A 19-year-old woman has been accused of beating her 3-month-old daughter to death with a dresser drawer.

Klarissa Ramirez brought her daughter to the Medical Center Hospital emergency room with her unresponsive daughter.

She claimed that she and the girl’s father had fed her and placed her in a baby seat in the living room. They walked away only to return and find her unresponsive.

After examing the girl, doctors found she was suffering from fractured ribs on both sides of her torso as well as a fractured skull.

When confronted with the fact that the injuries her daughter suffered did not match up to her story, Ramirez admitted she was solely responsible.

She said she had squeezed her daughter and then struck her in the head with a dresser drawer. Ramirez was arrested on May 8 and charged with injuries to a child. She bonded out the next day.

The charges against Ramirez were upgraded to capital murder in July after her daughter died and the cause of death was ruled a homicide.…

NORTHBRIDGE, MA – Police have arrested a man after they say he buried his ex-girlfriend’s dog alive.

Richard Piquard, 24, was caring for his ex-girlfriend’s 18-year-old Shih Tzu but reportedly had been trying to get rid of it for some time because it was not getting along with his new kitten.

Out of the numerous, humane options at his disposal, Piquard decided to torture the dog, named Chico, to death by burying it alive.

Piquard called a friend to tell her Chico had died the night before, but she was suspicious of his claims. She asked where he had buried Chico so she could dig him up and have him cremated.

After searching in the woods behind Piquard’s home with her fiancée, she found the spot where Chico was buried.

“So we began digging with a stick only to hit a rock,” Kaylee Belanger wrote on Facebook. “Hesitantly, I continued to move the dirt when we noticed fur. We uncovered a portion of Chico’s head. Only to realize that the rock was on top of him.”

Once the removed the rock off of Chico they realized, to their horror, that the dog was still breathing.…

AZTEC, NM – Two teens have been charged with child abuse after videos surfaced of them abusing an 8-year-old boy with Down Syndrome.

Two girls are dealing with a lot of hate right now after the family of the victim released two videos on social media in hopes that making the videos public will ensure the girls do not get a slap on the wrist.

The abuse happened last year at the hands of Lindsey Moss and Dallas Baron, who are both now 19-years-old, as they were babysitting Bricen Greenhaus.

Of course the girls recorded themselves abusing the boy, with one video showing the boy being coaxed to smoke from a bong and another video showing one of the girls throwing an empty water jug at his face.

Their antics came to light after one of their friends saw the videos and was so disturbed by what they were seeing that they sent them to Bricen’s father this past June.

The girls were subsequently arrested and charged with child abuse, but Bricen’s family wants the public to be aware of exactly what the girls were doing to their son.…

PEKIN, IL – A man has pleaded guilty to beating his 18-month-old niece so badly that he broke her leg in half.

The incident happened last August after 21-year-old Kahlus Adams and his wife picked up the toddler and her siblings.

Once back at their residence, it wasn’t long before they made a call to the girl’s parents to inform them she was at the hospital. According to Adams, while his wife was away, the girl had injured herself after falling off a couch.

Doctors examined the girl and found her injuries were way too severe to have been caused from a simple fall. She had numerous injuries, including a leg broke in half, a broken arm, and bleeding on the brain.

She spent several days in the hospital for several days but, luckily for her and Adams, she survived.

After being confronted with the evidence that his “couch” story was not adding up, Adams admitted he’d caused the girl’s injuries after he became infuriated with the girl when she would not stop crying.…

REEDSBURG, WI – Police have arrested a couple after their 15-year-old son starved to death during the family’s religious-based fast.

God tells people to do wacky shit every day; he has been the cray-cray-whisperer for millennia. And people listen; boy, do they ever.

The Big Man has been on a roll ever since he whispered in Abraham’s ear:

“Then God said, ‘Take your son, your only son, whom you love— Isaac— and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.'” (Genesis 22:2)

…and Abraham grabbed Isaac and some camping gear and got to steppin’.

Of course, anyone who has spent any time in Sunday School knows how that old story plays out: right before the knife comes down on lil’ Isaac, God busts that psych-move, gets a good belly-laugh, and spares Isaac, much to the chagrin of a nearby ram, who got the honor of dying for God instead.

You’d think at some point, people would stop listening to the ol’ Cosmic Jokester, since his commands always seem to end with someone dying a horrible death, but no.…

LACEY, WA – Police in Lacey believe they have a serial cat killer in their midst after a 13th cat was found mutilated in public areas.

In a truly macabre twist on that chilling staple of true crime, the serial killer, pet cats in Thurston County, Washington are being abducted, slaughtered and mutilated in a ritualized manner reminiscent of Saucy Jack.

The string of feline mutilation/murders began in February. One after another, the grisly, slaughtered remains of pet cats began turning up in public places, almost as if, according to authorities, they were being intentionally left on display to be found.

Authorities believe all of the killings are related because of a specific common mutilation.

The Pet Predator (and yes, I’m calling dibs on the moniker) slices them open and removes the spine.

The body count hit thirteen on August 31st. Like the other victims, this was someone’s pet: the guy had taken it in as a stray kitten and raised it to adulthood.

I can’t even imagine. I would go full-on-Dexter.…
