WICHITA, KS – Emily Glass, the main suspect in the death of her stepson Lucas Hernandez, has committed suicide.

The body of 26-year-old Emily Glass was found early Friday morning at the home of Lucas Hernandez’ father. She apparently died from a gunshot wound.

No further details have been reported.

Glass was the main suspect in the death of her stepson, 5-year-old Lucas Hernandez, who was reported missing in February of this year.

Glass told police she had fallen asleep for a few hours and when she woke up Hernandez was gone.

Before he went missing, the state of Kansas was told at least twice that Hernandez was being abused and enduring a dysfunctional and violent family life.

It was alleged that Glass had bipolar disorder, abused meth, and routinely targeted the boy when she was angry at his father.

Then last month, Glass led a private investigator to the boy’s remains underneath a Kansas bridge.

The story regarding how that private investigator got Glass to lead him to the boy’s body could be turned into a movie, to be honest.…

CHINA – A 10-year-old boy in China went on television to beg his mother to come back after she disappeared with all the money that was raised for his medical care.

Last November, Chengcheng was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow.

“He was coughing very badly and had trouble breathing when he was admitted to intensive care unit,” said Dr. Qu Lijuan, a specialist at Anhui Provincial Children’s Hospital.

With the help of a charity set up by Chengcheng’s family, his school and the Civil Affairs Bureau, they were able to raise 220000 yuan ($34,000) to help with his treatments.

Over the next six months, the boy’s condition improved greatly after undergoing seven treatments of combination chemotherapy.

“Right now, he is in a very stable condition,” Dr. Qu said.

But then his mother vanished with the money.

In late April, she asked Chengcheng’s uncle to take care of the boy for a few days because she had injured her hand.

After taking Chengcheng to the doctor for a checkup he tried calling his mother so she could pay the bill but was unable to reach her.…

WICHITA, KS – The body of a 5-year-old boy missing since February has been located and his stepmother has been taken into custody.

Lucas Hernandez was reported missing in February of this year. His stepmother, 26-year-old Emily Glass, told police she had fell asleep for a few hours and when she woke up Hernandez was gone.

Investigators immediately began searching the area but could not find any trace of him. An Amber Alert because there were no indications the boy had been abducted.

The search for Hernandez ended on Thursday when his remains were found underneath a Kansas bridge. Police say his remains were not visible from the street and had been there for ‘awhile’.

Investigators say Glass led a private investigator to the area. She was still at the scene when police arrived and began the search that led them to the boy’s remains.

Glass was booked into the Sedgwick County Jail late that night for interference with law enforcement officer and obstruction. My guess is that those charges will be upgraded once a cause of death has been determined.…

LITTLE ROCK, AR – The body of 18-year-old Ebby Steppach, missing since 2015, has been found inside a park’s drainage pipe.

Steppach was last seen on October 24, 2015, in Little Rock, Arkansas . She had left her brother’s home that morning to visit her grandmother in west Little Rock.

Her stepfather was supposed to meet her there, but when he arrived she had already left. The following evening she called her brother and spoke to him for four minutes.

According to her brother, she sounded disorientated and said she didn’t know where she was or who she was with. That would be the last time anyone would ever hear from her.

Edit: Crime Watch Daily has a pretty good writeup on the phone call between her and her brother.

About a week later, her 2003 Volkswagen was found abandoned in Chalamount Park in West Little Rock. The car had a dead battery, was out of gas, and the ignition key was in the “on” position. Steppach’s cell phone, contact lenses, and purse were still inside the car.…

YULEE, FL – Police have arrested a woman in connection with the disappearance of a woman who was reported missing after not picking up her children on Mother’s Day.

I had a half-assed article written up about the disappearance of 34-year-old Joleen Cummings but abandoned it as there just wasn’t a lot of information at the time. A lot has changed.

For those of you who may have missed it, Cummings was reported missing after she failed to pick up her children from her ex-husband’s home on Mother’s Day.

She was last seen leaving her work at Tangles salon the day before. Her car was found parked at a nearby Target, but Cummings hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

Suspicion among the online detectives immediately fell on Cummings’ former boyfriend, Jason Gee, who had a warrant out for his arrest for something unrelated.

Before Cummings disappeared, neighbors reported hearing an argument between the two when Cummings would not allow him to stay at her house.

Gee was found in a home on May 15 hiding under some cardboard boxes and arrested on the outstanding warrant.…

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.…

WICHITA, KS – A couple have been arrested after the woman’s 3-year-old boy was found decomposing inside a block of concrete.

Miranda Miller, 36, and her boyfriend Stephen Bodine, 40, have been arrested after their ex-landlord found a cement structure inside the house they were evicted from that had a child’s body decomposing inside it.

Reports state that a landlord cleaning his property stumbled on what looked like a large cement coffin with a foul-smelling odor coming from it. He alerted police who had to bring in a forklift to remove it from the house.

Inside they would find the remains of what is, more than likely, 3-year-old Evan Brewer — who has been missing since July.

In March, Carlo Brewer contacted the Department of Children and Families claiming that his son was being abused by Miller. DCF opened an investigation and on July 6, the court had awarded a protection of abuse order for Carlo on his behalf of his son.

Incidentally, that is last day Evan was ever seen and Brewer has been trying to locate Evan ever since.…

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.…

sherri-papiniREDDING, CA – A 34-year-old mother-of-two went missing during an afternoon jog last Wednesday and her family fear she was abducted.

When Keith Papini returned home from work on Wednesday he found that his wife, Sherri, and their two children were not home.

When she would not answer her cell phone and he learned their children had not been picked up from daycare, Keith used the Find My Iphone app to locate Sherri’s phone near the intersection of Old Oregon Trail and Sunrise Drive in Redding.

When he drove to the location he did not find his wife, but did find her phone with the ear-buds still plugged into the device.

“He found her phone close to the road,” said Sherri’s sister Shelia. “He called the authorities immediately.”

Investigators say that at this time they do not have any evidence pointing to an abduction, but aren’t ruling it out saying it’s still early in the investigation.

However, friends and family cannot think of any other scenario, describing Sherri as a dedicated mother who would have never left her children at daycare or intentionally disrupted their lives.…

todd-kohlheppANDERSON COUNTY, SC – A woman missing since August has been found chained like a dog inside a metal storage container, and a registered sex offender has been arrested.

Back in August, 30-year-old Kala Brown and her boyfriend, 32-year-old Charlie Carver, disappeared from their apartment leaving cell phones, a car, and their dog behind.

The faded from the news a bit until recently, when someone started posting on Carver’s Facebook page.

The person making the posts claimed the couple were fine and just decided to leave.

Their family members did not believe the posts were coming from the couple, thinking the page had either been hacked, or the handiwork of the person(s) responsible for their disappearance.

We now know the fate of Brown, who was found alive inside a storage shed on property belonging to 45-year-old Todd Kohlhepp, a registered sex offender.

Acting on a tip provided by a sex crime investigator, deputies were on the property when they heard banging coming from the storage container

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said Brown was “chained inside the container like a dog.

Erica ParsonsROWAN COUNTY, NC – Five years after she disappeared, and three years after she was reported missing, the skeletal remains of 13-year-old Erica Parsons have been found.

For those of you who may not remember this case, here’s a quick refresher:

Erica was adopted by Casey and Sandy Parsons when she was two weeks old. In 2013, Erica’s step-brother reported her missing, but investigators would learn no one had seen the girl since 2011.

Casey and Sandy said they’d sent her to live with a relative in Asheville, but it turned out the relative didn’t exist. Over the next several months, police searched several properties but could not find Erica.

In 2014, Casey and Sandy were convicted on 76 federal charges for taking benefits for adoption assistance during the time Erica was missing. Casey was sentenced to 10 years, and Sandy was sentenced to eight years.

In July, Erica’s aunt and adoptive sister said they believed Erica was dead and that Casey and Sandy Parsons knew where Erica’s body was located.…
