OAK GROVE, KY – A 12-year-old girl has been charged with attempted murder after she poisoned her brother with Mr. Clean in an attempt to “get rid of him.”

The girl’s mother called police after she found Skype messages between her daughter and a man in which she claimed to be poisoning her 4-year-old brother with Mr. Clean.

She told deputies that when she confronted her daughter, she admitted to poisoning her brother because she didn’t feel she was loved anymore.

However, when police questioned her, she admitted to putting Mr. Clean in her brother’s water because “he was annoying her.”

The girl was placed under arrest and taken to a psychiatric hospital for evaluation. It will be up to a judge if she stays in evaluation or is moved to a jail.

Her brother did get sick from ingesting the cleaning chemicals, but has since recovered.

Las time we reported on someone this young trying to poison a family member was back in 2010 when a 13-year-old girl poisoned members of her adoptive family for a year.…

RICHMOND, KY – Police have arrested a couple after their 18-year-old daughter was found locked inside a cage in their home’s basement.

Police were performing a welfare check at the home of Tito and Shannon Felix, 50 and 51, when they went down to the basement that was littered with animal feces.

Also in the basement was the couple’s 18-year-old daughter. She was locked inside a wooden cage that measured seven feet long, 43 inches tall and 46 inches wide.

The cage was equipped with latches on the outside, a combination lock and a child’s toilet that was full of piss and shit.

When police asked the couple why in the hell was their adult daughter locked up inside the cage, they responded that the girl suffered from fetal alcohol syndrome and would sleepwalk.

So, they explained, keeping her locked in the cage at night so she “doesn’t get out and we can get some sleep.”

The couple was arrested on the spot and charged with unlawful imprisonment and criminal abuse.…

ARJAY, KY – A man has been charged after his two pit bulls mauled a couple Christmas Eve morning, killing the woman.

According to the Bell County Sheriff’s Department, Johnny Saylor woke up Christmas Eve morning and started to walk outside his house to find his wife, 66-year-old Lorraine Saylor, who normally woke up before him and spread bird seed in the yard.

When he went out to the porch, he was immediately attacked by two pit bulls that belonged to his neighbor, 42-year-old Johnny Lankford. The dogs latched on to Johnny’s arm and tried dragging him to the ground.

Luckily, Johnny’s brother lives next door and heard the commotion. He stepped out and began yelling at the dogs, causing them to release their hold on Johnny. This gave Johnny enough time to run back inside and grab a .22 caliber pistol.

When he returned outside, Johnny shot one of the dogs in the chest after it lunged at him. This caused the injured dog to run from the scene.

When Johnny made his way to the front of the house, he found Lorraine.…

WILLIAMSBURG, KY – Police have shot a woman after they say she lost her goddamn mind and fatally shot her husband and two teenage daughters.

Police were called to the home of Larry and Courtney Taylor on Friday night after a relative went to check on the family after not hearing from them all day.

“He went over there to check on them. No one had heard from there that day,” said Sheriff Colan Harrell. “He saw a body, left and called 911.”

When deputies arrived at the home, they had to kick in a back door to gain entry. Once inside, they encountered 41-year-old Courtney Taylor who was brandishing a pistol.

“He told her to put the weapon down and she didn’t,” Harrell said.

When Taylor aimed the pistol at the deputies, Deputy Sanders shot Taylor twice, once in the chest and once in the abdomen. She was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Deputies would then find the dead bodies of Taylor’s 56-year-old husband Larry, 18-year-old daughter Jesse and 13-year-old daughter Jolee.…

Jonathan Lewis HerndonLOUISVILLE, KY – Police say Jonathan Herndon killed is girlfriend inside their apartment and then lived with her corpse for days.

Police were called to the couple’s apartment on Sunday to perform a welfare check after the victim’s best friend became worried that she could not contact her.

When police got inside the apartment, they found Herndon unconscious on a couch trying to overdose. Police say there was a suicide note nearby, but they have not detailed what was written.

After searching the apartment they would find the decomposing body of Herndon’s girlfriend, Constance Thomas, dead inside her bedroom. She had been hidden under a pile of clothes and had a garbage bag wrapped around her head.

The official cause of death was later determined to be blunt force trauma. The weapon used has not been identified.

Police would also find Thomas’ dog, Lex, dead inside the apartment. Detectives aren’t sure if the dog died from neglect after Thomas died, or if it was also killed by Herndon.

Herndon was arrested and charged with murder, tampering with physical evidence and abuse of a corpse. …

Roquel BainLOUISVILLE, KY – Roquel Bain was killed after being stuck by a train while investigating the mythical Pope Lick Monster – a half-man, half-goat creature that tricks people into getting hit by a train.

Bain, 26, and her boyfriend came to Louisville from Dayton, Ohio on Saturday to take part in a paranormal tour scheduled from 10 p.m. to midnight. Before the tour started, the couple decided to investigate the Pope Lick Monster.

The creature reportedly lives under the Pope Lick train trestle and lures people to their deaths by having them walk on the trestle, which stands 80 to 100 feet high, and get hit by an oncoming train.

As the couple were walking along the trestle, a Norfolk Southern train came barreling towards them at around 30 mph. Realizing they did not have time to run for safety, the couple decided to hang from the sides of trestle until the train passed.

The train’s engineer sounded his horn and put on the brakes, but it would be too late for Bain who, unlike her boyfriend, was unable to clear the tracks in time. …

Laura ReidLOUISVILLE, KY – Police have arrested 49-year-old Laura Reid after she allegedly beat a disabled man with his metal cane because he did not believe in God.

Police say Reid was in the man’s home when she asked if he believed in Santa Claus God. When he replied that he did not, Reid became so angry at his heathen ass that she beat the poor guy with his metal cane until it broke.

Reid remained at the man’s home for three hours after beating God into him, during which time he could not leave due to his disabilities. When she finally left, she reportedly took the guy’s cell phone, keys, cash and a wallet.

After making sure the coast was clear, the man crawled to a nearby gas station for help. He was taken to the hospital where he was treated for a concussion, a broken arm, and injuries associated with getting one’s ass kicked.

Reid was arrested on Tuesday and charged with second degree assault, second degree robbery, and first degree unlawful imprisonment.…

Stephanie WattsLEXINGTON, KY – Police have arrested Stephanie Watts after she allegedly pimped out her 12-year-old daughter to her boyfriend, then paid her $80 to keep her mouth shut.

Police got involved after Watts got drunk and told someone about the incident, who then contacted authorities.

When investigators spoke with the victim, now 13, she told them that in August her mom made her undress and left her alone in bed with her boyfriend, 34-year-old Juan Plata.

The next day, after being sodomized by Plata, her mother paid her $80 in hush money.

On Christmas Eve, police arrested Watts and Plata. Watts has been charged with human trafficking while Plata is looking at a sodomy charge. Both have pleaded not guilty.

The victim’s father says Watts is only allowed supervised visits with her daughter, and that the night of the alleged sexual activity was the one time he’d left their daughter alone in Watts’ custody.

If you are wondering why she only had supervised visitation with her daughter, it may have something to do with Watts being a registered sex offender.…

Ronald ExantusLOUISVILLE, KY – Ronald Exantus has been accused of breaking into a family’s home then, for reasons currently unknown, stabbed a 6-year-old boy to death in his bedroom.

I had a draft of this story written up yesterday, but was waiting to see if any more details came out regarding a motive behind the killing. But as of this morning, not much else is known and the entire incident is just as bizarre as it is tragic.

According to the initial reports, 32-year-old Ronald Exantus was 200 miles from his home in Indiana when he broke into the house where 6-year-old Logan Tipton lived with his parents and three siblings.

After grabbing a large kitchen knife, Exantus wandered around the home before making his way to Tipton’s upstairs bedroom. For reasons unknown, Exantus then used the knife to fatally stab the sleeping boy multiple times in the head.

Tipton’s sisters woke up during the attack and began screaming, prompting their father to run into the room and hold Exantus at the scene until police arrived. …

Michael MayLINCOLN COUNTY, KY – Police in Kentucky have arrested 44-year-old Michael May after he was caught trying to dig up his father’s grave so he could argue with the dead man’s corpse.

Lincoln County constable Delbert Mitchell noticed a truck parked at the Pilot Baptist Church cemetery at around 10:30 p.m. Monday night and went to investigate. He would find May using a shovel and a pickaxe to dig up his father’s grave.

Mitchell said that when he asked May what in the hell he was doing, May began “hollering out verses” from the Bible and explained that he was trying to dig up his old man in order for his deceased father to go to heaven.

May’s father died more than three decades ago after being beaten to death at a sawmill while drinking with co-workers. According to Greg Haynes, the pastor of Pilot Baptist Church, May explained that his “Daddy didn’t do things right,” and he needed to be dug up in order to go to Heaven.

According reports, witnesses observed Cox hitting his infant son, Jayceon Chrystie, several times with his hand as the child was in a car seat in the front passenger seat of Cox’s car. They were so disturbed by what they witnessed that they called 911 to report it.

“My wife and I [were] heading on the 31W, [and] we witnessed a guy look like he was striking something in the back seat of the car. I assumed that it was an infant or toddler the way he was striking it,” the witness said. “Couldn’t believe it, couldn’t believe it.”

Police looked for Cox’s vehicle, but before they could find it another call came in from the home of the boy’s mother. She called 911 to report Cox had dropped their son off in the driveway after having home for only a couple hours, and that the boy was “black and blue” and unresponsive.…
