TACOMA, WA – A couple in Washington have been accused of killing a man so they could live in his home.

Meth leads to some strange problem-solving strategies.

Like when Jeremy and Lorena Shaw needed a new place to live. Shaw just picked out a nice house and killed Homeowner Dude, then moved right in.

Problem solved.

Authorities allege that Shaw used a sham petition as an excuse to case Steven Morphis’ secluded seven-acre property, and to obtain a copy of his signature.

On September 19th, Shaw returned and subdued Morphis by pepper-spraying him, then bludgeoned him repeatedly and cut his throat. After hiding the body, he brought his beloved wife Lorena to their “new home,” warning her not to go into the shed.

And he would have gotten away with it, too, if it hadn’t’ve been for those damned handymen.

As is usual when the ingestion of lots of meth is involved, things went a bit awry for the couple on the evening of September 20th, when two handymen found Morphis’ body in a shed, bound hand and foot and wrapped in a tarp and a comforter.…

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.…

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.…

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.…

MOUNT VERNON, WA – Police arrested a man after he admitted to cutting off his girlfriend’s head in front of their 3-year-old daughter because God told him to.

Vanessa Cons, 27, and Timothy Hernandez, 32, lived together with their 3-year-old daughter at the home of Hernandez’s parents.

On Sunday Hernandez’s parents left to go to church. When they returned a few hours later they were greeted by a horrific site.

Cons was lying dead on the floor with her decapitated head positioned on her back like some kind of macabre art exhibit.

The couple called police to report what they had found while also letting them know their son and his daughter were not at the home.

When police arrived they found that, aside from having her head sawed off, Cons had also suffered multiple stab wounds to her back, neck and to the back of her head.

A butcher knife was found in the sink with a clean blade but with blood and hair on the handle.

Police would locate Hernandez with his daughter at the nearby Cascade Mall, where Hernandez would readily admit that he was responsible for killing Cons.…

ANCHORAGE, AK — A mother has been charged with murder after two of her baby daughters die two years apart.

Last November, 23-year-old Stephany LaFountain called emergency services to report her 13-month-old daughter was not breathing.

The girl was taken to the hospital where she would die four days later. It would later be determined that the girl had died from lack of oxygen to the brain.

Looking into LaFountain’s past, investigators learned that she had lost another daughter in a similar fashion two years prior.

In 2015, while in a relationship with a different man, LaFountain had a 4-month-daughter that died. Police did not believe the death was the result of foul play at that time.

But now? After LaFountain had lost two baby girls in the same way within two years?

“The autopsy results and medical records for both children showed that they were entirely healthy, with no genetic abnormalities, no diseases, and no injuries,” police stated in a news release.

Investigators started to focus their attention on LaFountain and decided to check out her Internet activity.…

SALT LAKE CITY, UT – Man has admitted to killing a city employee and neighbors’ pets after he was told to clean up his yard.

It doesn’t matter where you go, or how nice the neighborhood is, there’s always one asshole fucking it up for everyone else.

Uncut yard, shit strewn everywhere, broken-down cars: each and every one a middle finger to the rest of the poor bastards that have to live nearby. And they’re always complete shits about it, too.

Kevin Wayne Billings is that asshole. And he likes it that way. Enough to split somebody’s wig over it.

If it wasn’t for assholes like Billings, we wouldn’t have to have municipal codes. Or municipal code enforcement officers. But then Billings had his own solution to this last problem.

Neighbors apparently got tired of looking at his shitty yard and all the “unregistered” (read: junk) vehicles parked atop it. The West Valley City, Utah code enforcement bureaucrats received multiple complaints about Billing’s deficient domicile and he was notified of the code violations on July 24th.…

RURAL RETREAT, VA – A woman has been accused of cutting off her boyfriend’s head allegedly demanded arresting police officers “to take me back and let me get my heads.”

Sometimes a trinket is all we have by which to remember a departed loved one. The need for that trinket, that last link, can exceed rationality.

Roena Mills, 41, knows. She’s no April Fool.

She is batshit crazy, though.

When Mercer County deputies were called to a house in Lerona, West Virginia, by annoyed residents this past April 1st, they found her deranged ass bouncing around, bloody and single-gloved, with “a pocket knife in her pants”.

Mills had been trying to convince the homeowners to loan her a chainsaw and some gasoline. They declined and offered to give her a ride somewhere. She declined their counteroffer. And refused to leave.

Deputies later reported that her eyes were glazed and that she kept talking to an unseen person whom she called “Daddy.”

She gave a false name and blamed all the blood on having been thrown through a glass door.…

CHICAGO, IL – A 16-year-old girl and an 18-year-old boy have been accused of killing another teen by stabbing him, setting him on fire, then running him over when he tried running away.

Firefighters were in the middle of training last Tuesday when they noticed smoke in a nearby field. When they went to investigate, they found the smoldering body of 18-year-old Luis Guerrero.

It wasn’t long before police had three teens in custody and charged in connection to Guerrero’s murder, all thanks to the parents of 18-year-old Francisco Alvarado.

Turns out that while police were on the scene, Alvarado’s parents told them their son was an acquaintance of Guerrero’s and that there was unexplained blood stains in their Jeep their son had borrowed that night.

This information led police to 18-year-old  Jesus Correa who took them to a motel where Alvarado was staying with 16-year-old Tia Brewer.

Inside the room police found Guerrero’s bloody backpack, a knife and screwdriver, as well as bags of food and clothing that indicated the couple were about to take a trip.…

PHOENIX, AZ – Police have charged a man with murder after he stomped another man to death for allegedly following his 16-year-old daughter into a convenience store bathroom.

According to a police report, 40-year-old Melvin Harris had picked up his 16-year-old daughter and two of her friends after they had gotten off work.

On the way home they made a stop at a QuikTrip convenience store to get drinks.

While his daughter was in the store, Harris was approached by Leon Armstrong who asked for some money. Armstrong then entered the store after Harris gave him some change.

A short time later, Harris’ daughter came out of the store and said that a man had followed her into the restroom and had tried to get into the stall she was using. She notified employees and Harris informed a hired security guard at the store that if he didn’t handle the situation he was going to.

Armstrong was kicked out of the store and Harris’s daughter pointed him out as the man who was in the bathroom.…

MIAMI BEACH, FL – A man has been accused of beating his girlfriend’s 3-year-old daughter to death, and the possible reason behind the beating is mind-boggling.

Last Friday night, 27-year-old Dennys Llopiz called 911 claiming he found his girlfriend’s daughter, 3-year-old Skylar, slumped over in the shower after he put her there for soiling herself.

Possibly figuring that responding police may question the extensive bruising on Skylar’s body, Llopiz added that Skyler had fallen on some rocks when they went fishing the night before.

Skylar was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. When doctors conducted an autopsy, it was quickly revealed the girl had not had a simple fallen on some rocks.

Skylar had suffered a large laceration to her liver, her large intestine, bowels and diaphragm and right lung were all bruised, the air sacs in her lungs were ruptured, and three ribs were fractured.

Her cause of death was ruled blunt force trauma.

Since Llopiz was the only person with the girl at the time of her injuries and his explanation for the girl’s injuries were not meshing with the obvious ass-kicking she was delivered, he was charged with her murder.…

RIO RANCHO, NM – The 6-year-old girl found dead in her home’s garage was naked from the waist down and had damage to her genitals.

Ariana Jade Romeo was found dead on Saturday morning inside her home’s garage, which was also a makeshift bedroom described as being in “total disarray” by police.

Her body was in bloody sheets on a piece of foam that was acting as a mattress. The girl was not wearing pants or underwear and there was damage to her genitals.

Lying nearby was a marijuana pipe and prescription medications.

How the girl died has not been released, but search warrants stated police were looking for items that could be used to strangle or beat someone.

Neighbors say the girl lived at the home with her mother and older kids were often seen going in-and-out of the home. She had only been living at the home for a short time.

While no one has been arrested at this time, here’s some interesting information regarding the man who owns the home, 63-year-old Winston Scates.…
