Houston, TX — On the last day of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, 46-year-old Brian Greenhouse fell to his death from the “Hi-Miler” roller coaster.

Reports are that around 9 pm, riders were at the coaster’s midway point traveling about 9 miles an hour before a drop. Greenhouse was in the first car and for reasons unknown, fell from a height of about 28-feet, landing on a person on the ground. CPR was administered on Greenhouse by medical personnel, but he would die from his injuries. The person he fell on suffered a broken ankle.

Inspectors have been out to check the ride and they are unable to find anything wrong with it. Unlike Lindsay Zebo, the 21-year-old who was killed after being ejected from a roller coaster last year, there doesn’t seem to be any signs of a mechanical malfunction. “They examined the car that this gentleman came out of. The lap restraint was still totally down. The bar was still totally down. They inspected it thoroughly and found no malfunction of this thing and then they inspected every other car and found no malfunction,” HLSR chief operating officer Leroy Shafer said.…

ROEBUCK, SC — A couple have been arrested on drug charges hours after the body of their dead baby was found inside a lockbox in the back of a pickup truck.

Police say that the employer of 34-year-old Chuck McCullough called police after they received an anonymous call from a person claiming McCullough had called stating his 2-month-old baby had stopped breathing. When the tipster informed McCullough to call police and an ambulance, McCullough hung up stating he could not do that.

Later that day, dispatch received a call informing them that McCullough and his wife, 21-year-old Carissa McCullough, were riding around town in a truck with their dead infant. Police were finally able to locate the couple after receiving another call informing them of where the couple were.

At first police didn’t find any dead baby in the truck until the couple told them to look in the back. There, inside a lockbox, police discovered the dead body of Noah Darrell Dennis McCullough. A search warrant on the couple’s residence was executed and guess what police found inside?…

Columbus, OH — Another sad story in the news today involving the accidental death of a 6-year-old boy who was accidentally hanged by a rope while playing on a slide.

The accident happened last Saturday afternoon as Noah was playing in the backyard of a friend’s house. He and his friends were playing with a rope that he somehow got wrapped around his neck as he went down a slide.

In a 911 call recording, one person was captured encouraging Noah, who had stopped breathing. “Come on, Noah. You got to come through, buddy,” the caller said as another neighbor performed CPR. “Come on. We’re here, buddy.”

Tragically, Noah would die an hour after arriving at Dublin Methodist Hospital. The preliminary coroner’s report indicates that Noah, a kindergartner at Bailey Elementary, died of ligature strangulation.

Police do not suspect foul play and believe that what happened was nothing other than a “tragic accident.”

Stories like this always remind me of that hot chick who almost hanged herself jumping from a swing.…

FULTON, KY — An investigation is currently underway regarding the death of a 14-month-old girl who died yesterday after being found face down in a bucket of bleach water.

Emergency workers where called to the child’s home Monday evening after she had been found in the bucket. She was taken to Parkway Regional Hospital where she was pronounced dead at 7:30 p.m. Obviously, people have a lot of questions and to make sure this kid’s death wasn’t criminal in nature, Fulton Police Chief Terry Powell plans on getting some answers.

“The incident is currently being investigated by all three agencies — Social Services, the coroner’s office and the Fulton Police Department — to gather the facts of the case for the commonwealth attorney to review and make the determination what, if any, charges should be filed,” Powell said at press time today.

No names have been released at this time, nor have any charges have been filed, but once investigators get the autopsy report back, that may change.…

Charlotte, NC — A teenager from Charlotte, North Carolina was reported missing last week and then found dead later that same day in Massachusetts may have fallen out of an airplane’s wheel well. Delvonte Tisdale moved from Baltimore to Charlotte to live with his father. He was a student at North Mecklenburg High School, a member of the school’s Air Force Jr. ROTC program and by all accounts, hated living in Charlotte. When he was reported missing by his father on Nov 14th, they figured he had run away like he had before. Hours later, on the 15th, a mangled body was discovered hundreds of miles away on the front lawn of an upscale home in Milton. The body was not wearing a shirt or shoes and was so badly mutilated that cause of death and immediate identification were impossible. The only clue was a handwritten note in a pocket that appeared to be a lunch pass with Tisdale’s name on it. Using fingerprints, investigators were able to determine it was in fact the missing teen.…

Teen Dies After Soaking In Hot Tub

November 23, 2010 at 8:40 am by  

SAN DIEGO, California — The autopsy has come back on the girl who died moments after getting out of a hot tub and they were inconclusive. Emily Palmeter, 16, was with a female friend on Friday night visiting two men, ages 18 and 19, at an apartment complex. After sitting in the complex’s hot tub for a while, Palmeter got out and accompanied one of the men to one of the men’s mother’s apartment. A short time later the man came back and told the other two that something was wrong with Palmeter. She was found shortly after 1:20 a.m. Saturday, collapsed on the living room floor. There were no signs of trauma or any indication of foul play, but homicide detectives are investigating. Toxicology tests have been ordered, but could take several weeks before the results to come in. According to Palmeter’s Facebook page, she was a junior at the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts. I was thinking that maybe she had just passed out and hit her head, as I have seen that happen before with people who sat in a hot tub for an extended length of time, but they would have surely found evidence of that during the autopsy.…

Daejon, South Korea – An impatient 40-year-old man known only as “Mr. Lee” plunged to his death down an elevator shaft at a shopping center last August after getting all testy because a woman inside the elevator failed to hold the door for him. As the attached video shows, Mr. Lee bumped the elevator doors with his scooter as they slammed shut in his face. Mr. Lee attempted to recall the elevator by pressing the button a few times. When that didn’t work, he threw the scooter into reverse, backed it up a bit, and proceeded to ram into the doors at full speed. Though he left a good-sized dent in the cheap ass doors and loosened ’em up a bit, they remained closed. Perhaps thinking that the third time’s the charm, he backed it up and hit the throttle again. This time, the flimsy doors didn’t hold. Oopsie!! He and the scooter made a hard landing about 19 feet down. Officials at the shopping center have since vowed to strengthen the doors of the lifts to ensure such a thing never happens again.…

CLAREMONT, N.H. – An employee for APC Paper Company was killed when he got sucked into a paper roller. No one knows exactly how 34-year-old Leo P. Gonyea got pulled into the machine even though a co-worker was standing 15-ft from him. “He was looking the other way. When he turned, he saw Leo wasn’t there. He went around and found Leo on the floor.” The machine is about the size of a car and is uses rollers to squeeze moisture out of paper as it is fed through. Think about that horrific fact for a bit. “I understand there is some flexing in the machinery, so if there’s a bump the rollers do give,” Claremont Fire Chief Peter Chase said. “However it’s obviously not meant for a person to go through.” When paramedics arrived, they found Gonyea, who regularly talked of working 12 hour shifts on his Facebook page, was out of the machine but was in cardiac arrest and suffering from severe trauma. He would die in route to the hospital.…

BATON ROUGE, LA – A woman riding the”Xtreme” roller coaster at the Dixie Landin’ Amusement Park died Sunday when she was ejected from the ride. Witnesses say 21-year-old Lindsay Zeno, who was at the park with friends, was struggling with her shoulder harness before falling 30 feet to the ground. “Her friends say that when they turned around and looked they didn’t see her but then probably she was on the ground,” said Zeno’s grandmother. She would die an hour later after being rushed to the hospital. The Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshal is investigating and at this point have found nothing wrong with the ride but State Fire Marshal Butch Browning said the investigation will take some time. Meanwhile, Zeno’s family has already hired an attorney. The park was open for business Monday, but not the roller coaster. You know, this is a true nightmare of mine. I have no fear of roller coasters, in fact I love them to death. But I have had some kickass nightmares involving roller coasters and failed restraints that have startled me awake.…

Conway, SC – Shortly after 8 p.m. Friday, two Walmart asset protection employees stopped Dorina Williams, 41, because they suspected her of shoplifting. Williams and her 16-year-old daughter Myiesha Williams then got into an altercation with the Wal-Mart employees. What exactly transpired at that point is not known, but the teen says that her mother attempted to give the employees the bag they wanted to see, but that they began choking her mother. She says she tried to tell the employees that her mother could not breathe. Williams collapsed during the struggle and was taken to Conway Medical Center where she was later pronounced dead. Deputy Coroner Tony Hendrick said she died of natural causes. Her family is now speaking to the press, and they are not real happy with Wal-Mart. …

Man Mauled To Death By Daughter’s Pit Bulls

January 19, 2010 at 12:10 pm by  

Chicago – Johnny Wilson, 56, was found dead in the home he shared with his daughter and two grandchildren. He had been mauled to death by his daughter’s pit bulls. He had suffered severe head trauma, including having both his ears bitten off and at least one of his eyes mauled. Four adult pit bulls and two puppies were confiscated from the home on Sunday. Wilson’s daughter, who was breeding and selling the dogs, gave permission to have them all euthanized. Investigators are trying to determine which dogs were involved in the attack. They also stated that the animals did not look mistreated and seemed healthy. “He was a very nice, outgoing man. I talked to him every morning,” Wilson’s friend William Watts said. “He never did nobody no trouble. Went to work every day. His wife recently died from cancer. It’s some sad stuff, man”. The dogs may have been scared by the low pitch of Wilson’s voice. Wilson had complained earlier that the dogs had ripped his clothes, Watts said.…

Gay Porn Star Chokes To Death On Bag Of Pot

December 16, 2009 at 1:12 pm by  

Panama City Beach – Like many other acts 23-year-old Andrew Grande aka Dustin Michaels performed, this one was  also caught on camera. The video is after the jump, but it is a bit disturbing. His decision to swallow a bag of weed may have been a boneheaded one, I still cannot help but feel sorry for the dud as he chokes to death in front of a camera crew. For those of you who would rather not watch a guy die, just after 2AM Friday police were called to the Executive Inn where it was reported Grande assaulted a female. When deputies arrived, accompanied by a camera crew from Zoo Productions (the people behind “Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader”, “MTV’s Busted” and “Speeders”), one of the deputies tried to arrest Grande but he resisted having cuffs put on and stuffed something in his mouth. Not aware that he was choking, cops shoot Grande with a taser. Grande pulls the taser probes out of his body and shoves his hand in his mouth trying to dislodge the bag of weed.…
