VENTNOR, NJ – A woman confessed to bludgeoning her mother and grandmother to death in their condo on July 7th.

Heather Barbera, 42, evidently wanted to live it up and have a rip-roaring time in Atlantic City and later in Manhattan.

However, she needed a way to fund her luxurious desires.

So, according to reports, Barbera used a nightstick to beat her mom and granny to death. She then took their cash and credit cards before hightailing it to Atlantic City.

The bodies of the two women – 67-year-old Michelle Gordon and 81-year-old Elaine Rosen – were discovered by Barbera’s uncle. He’d stopped by the condo on July 8th to see why they were not answering his calls.

“It was unimaginable,” he said. “It was horrible, they were both on the floor. There was blood all over. I was hoping they were alive, even though they were dead.”

Police didn’t have a hard time finding Barbera as she was leaving a credit card trail all over Manhattan as she stayed in a luxury hotel and enjoyed a shopping spree as she walked toward Times Square.…

CHEHALIS, WA – Two brothers have been accused of raping and murdering a 16-year-old boy.

This is an odd one as a motive behind the brothers’ actions hasn’t been made clear. But here’s the details so far:

Last week, 16-year-old Benjamin Eastman was reported missing by his father. During their search for the teen, investigators would find his body buried in a shallow grave.

A medical examination would rule Eastman died of blunt-force trauma.

As the discovery was making the news, police were asking for help locating Eastman’s closest friend, 16-year-old Benito Marquez and Benito’s brother, 21-year-old Jonathan Adamson.

The brothers were reportedly the last to see Eastman and seemed to have left the area.

Once the brothers were located and questioned by police, they began singing — especially when cell phone records show they lured Eastman into the woods for a camping trip but actually planned to assault him.

Adamson allegedly told detectives that once in the woods, he and his younger brother physically assaulted Eastman for 20-45 minutes. Adamson estimated they kicked Eastman more than 100 times.…

DUNWOODY, GA – A man has been accused of stabbing his 15-year-old sister 53 times because she took too long in the bathroom.

Gavin Henderson, 27, just got out of prison last year after serving several years for violent crimes.

Not having anywhere to live, Henderson moved into an apartment with his mother and two sisters.

Living with Henderson was not easy according to family, as he has extreme anger management issues.

He’d pulled a knife out on one of his sisters in the past, but the situation was resolved by the family and police were never called.

But on June 18th, Henderson totally lost his shit. According to reports, Henderson was at the apartment with his sisters – a 12-year-old and 15-year-old Keaira Henderson – while his mother was at work.

According to the 12-year-old, an argument started between Henderson and the older teen because Keaira was “taking too long in the bathroom.”

Henderson grabbed a 10-inch hunting-style knife and chased Keaira as she ran outside and started screaming for help.…

FOUNTAIN HILLS, AZ – A 92-year-old woman is behind bars after she fatally shot her son who wanted to put her in an assisted living facility.

According to reports, Anna Mae Blessing moved in with her 72-year-old son and his girlfriend about six months ago.

A discussion was had recently regarding Blessing being placed in an assisted living facility — something Blessing was not too keen on doing.

“From my understanding, she had thought about it for a few days because there was a dispute regarding her son wanting to put her in an assisted living home,” Maricopa County Sgt. Bryant Vanejas said.

So, on Monday, Blessing walked into her son’s bedroom with two handguns hidden in the pockets of her robe.

After telling her son she was tired of the way he treated her, Blessing pulled out one of the guns and shot him several times, killing him.

His girlfriend, who was in the room, managed to wrestle the gun out of Blessing’s hand and then knock the second gun out of Blessing’s hand when she pulled it out of her other pocket.…

LANCASTER, PA – Police have arrested a man after a DNA match identified him as the person responsible for the 1992 rape and murder of Christy Mirack.

On Dec. 21, 1992, the body of 25-year-old Christy Mirack was found dead on the living room floor of her apartment.

Mirack had been savagely beaten, strangled and sexually assaulted.

Her clothes were pushed down from her waist, her shirt pushed up and her face beaten so badly that it was distorted.

Evidence from the scene indicated Mirack fought for her life against her attacker.

DNA samples were taken from her body and the carpet underneath her body, but for 25 years police have not made an arrest.

That was until the DNA sample was matched to a relative who submitted their DNA to the genealogy website GEDmatch. The sample was then entered into an online, open-source database that is available to law enforcement.

After further investigation, the DNA was narrowed down to 49-year-old Raymond “DJ Freez” Rowe. His DNA was a confirmed match after undercover officers collected a water bottle and chewing gum from Rowe.…

WIGGINS, MS – A man who confessed to killing and decapitating his mother stated he used a butter knife, his hands, and his teeth to remove her head.

Earlier this month, the family of 51-year-old Sherry Johnson called police and asked them to perform a welfare check at her home after being unable to contact her.

The family said they had been trying to contact Johnson for several days but were being told by her son, Terrelle Johnson, that she had gone on a cruise. They didn’t believe it.

Police went to her home on June 6 and encountered Terrelle sitting on the front porch. When asked about his mother’s whereabouts he said she was off with a friend.

An officer went inside the home and discovered a bedroom covered in blood, but no sign of Sherry. That was until police went into the backyard.

That’s where they found Sherry’s decapitated corpse with her head lying 15 feet away.

After being taken into custody, Terrelle admitted he had murdered his mother after an argument over credit cards.…

KALAMAZOO, MI – Police have arrested a woman after they say she beat her 5-month-old son to death.

In late January, 21-year-old Jennifer Mohler was unable to wake up her 5-month-old son. She placed him back into his bassinet to tend to the boy’s twin brother.

She then notified family members in the home that her son “didn’t look right” and they ended up calling for an ambulance.

After being taken to the hospital, the boy was having seizures, had bleeding on the brain, retinal hemorrhaging, facial bruising and whiplash trauma.

The injuries were listed as “non-accidental trauma” and police were notified.

When questioned, Mohler admitted she hit both children with an open hand and hitting one in the head with an eyeglass container. She also admitted to dropping them both into their bassinets.

A judge ordered both children be removed from Mohler’s custody. Unfortunately, the injured infant died from his injuries in February.

Mohler was subsequently charged with murder and first-degree child abuse. She’s facing life behind bars if convicted on the charges.…

LAKELAND, FL — Police have charged a couple with the murder of the man’s 6-year-old daughter.

Last week, 26-year-old Larry Golden Jr. called 911 to report he had found his 6-year-old daughter, Honesty Curry, unresponsive in her bed.

When paramedics arrived at Golden’s apartment they found Honesty lying unresponsive on the living room floor.

Honesty was rushed to the hospital where doctors would find the girl suffering from bruises and lacerations all over her body. Even worse, she had severe skull damage and adult bite marks on her inner thigh.

To give you an idea on just how severe the girl’s skull damage was, one crack went from one ear, over her head, to the other. Another fracture penetrated the thickest area of her skull.

Despite best efforts to save Honesty, the girl would die two days later.

When questioned about the girl’s injuries, Golden and his live-in girlfriend, 21-year-old Breonna Wren, claimed the injuries were self-inflicted. They said Honesty purposefully slammed her head into a wall.

When they were told there was no way that could cause all the injuries the girl had suffered, Wren admitted to striking Honesty with a belt and said that Golden hit his daughter with an object in the kitchen.…

FORT IRWIN, CA – Police have accused 24-year-old Rose Marie Smith with the death of her 4-year-old stepson.

Police were called to a home on June 7 on a report of an unresponsive child.

First responders would find 4-year-old Benjamin Schmittle unresponsive after allegedly having a seizure.

He was rushed to the hospital but because of the severity of his injuries, the boy was airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center suffering from a brain aneurysm.

Benjamin would die the next day.

Investigators were informed the injuries Benjamin suffered did not appear to be accidental.

After interviewing family members, investigators arrested Rose Marie Schmittle.

She is facing charges of murder and assault on a child causing death and being held without bail at the West Valley Detention Center.

According to his family, Benjamin lived with his father and stepmother at the time of the incident. He would have turned five years old in July.…

HENDERSON, NV – A 16-year-old boy died while playing a game of Russian roulette with two other teens inside an abandoned house.

On Friday police tried to pull over a vehicle they witnessed driving recklessly. The car ended up crashing and several teenagers ran from the vehicle.

After failing to flee police and being taken into custody, one of the teens told officers “he had been present during a murder” at an abandoned home earlier that day.

When police investigated the home, they found the body of 16-year-old Matthew Minkler in a closet.

Apparently, Minkler had been playing Russian roulette with 16-year-old Jaiden Caruso and 17-year-old Kody Harlan inside the home earlier that day.

But unlike the typical rules of Russian roulette of the person pulling the trigger themselves, Caruso changed the rules according to Harlan.

Harlan told police that Caruso pulled out a .375-caliber revolver for a game of Russian roulette but “never allowed the other participants to handle the firearm or pull the trigger themselves” during the game.

Caruso ended up shooting Minkler in the face.

BURLINGTON, VT – A fight between two men on a bridge ended with one of them falling off the bridge and the other facing murder charges.

Jared Streeter and Joshua Granger, both 20, have had a long-running rivalry that hinged on them both being interested int he same woman.

The two men decided to settle things with an arranged fight on Saturday at the Blue Bridge.

The bridge is a railroad span over the Winooski River that is commonly traveled on foot as a shortcut between Burlington and Winooski.

The fight had its own set of rules, the main one being that no weapons would be allowed. The two men showed up, along with a small crowd, and the fight began.

According to witness statements, the crowd advanced toward the fight, causing the two men to back up toward the bridge.

At some point, Streeter got knocked out and hit his head on a metal railing. He reportedly was “sleeping for a good two seconds.”

Sleeter managed to get back up and resume fighting but he was visibly groggy.…

PEARL RIVER, LA – A 20-year-old woman has been accused of beating a 46-year-old man to death who was recovering from brain tumor surgery.

While people were out enjoying themselves on the Pearl River on Saturday, an argument started between two large groups at a sandbar.

Apparently, the disagreement was over one group throwing bottles into the river and the other group telling them to stop.

Jeffrey Howell, 46, was a part of the latter group. He had recently survived a brain tumor surgery and still had the staples in his head.

The argument turned physical and Howell ended up dead from blunt-force trauma to the head. An autopsy would later reveal Howell had been hit near the scar from his surgery.

“If you cup your hand behind your left ear, that’s where the incision was,” said St. Tammany Coroner Dr. Charles Preston.

After talking with witnesses at the scene, 20-year-old Blaine Manalle was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. She’s currently in the St Tammany Parish Jail with a $250,000 bond.…
