STEILACOOM, WA – A pregnant woman is dead after her 6-year-old son accidentally ran her over with a minivan.

The incident happened Monday afternoon across the road from the Sunnyside Beach Park parking lot.

Shannon MacLeod, 35, was outside of the running van loading items in the back when her 6-year-old son managed to put the vehicle in neutral or reverse.

MacLeod tried stopping the van but was run over and pinned underneath the vehicle. After firefighters used equipment to lift the van off of her, but she would die as she was being transported to the hospital.

However, doctors were able to save her baby via emergency C-section. Her family says the baby, named Joseph, weighed only 5 pounds and is very fragile.

This is the second tragedy to hit the family in recent months, having lost all of their possessions in a fire last December.

“We’re just trying to keep us all together that’s all,” her son Nathan said. “No matter how much she struggled or how much she starved her kids always came first and it’s always been like that with my mom.”

As you can probably imagine, a GoFundme page has been created to help with MacLeod’s funeral and to help her surviving six seven children.…

Eren TobenGERMANY – Eren Toben, 20, has been sentenced to 14 years in prison after he burned his pregnant girlfriend alive because he did not want to be a father.

Last January, someone walking ini some woods outside of Berlin found the charred remains of 19-year-old Maria Peiner, who was 8-months-pregnant.

It didn’t take long before police had Peiner’s boyfriend, Toben, in custody  – along with his long-time friend, 20-year-old Daniel Mueller.

Both men blamed the other for Peiner’s death, but police would eventually determine that both men lured the pregnant teen into the woods after telling her they were going shopping for baby clothes.

Once in the woods, Toben hit the girl with a piece of wood before stabbing her with a bread knife. He then poured gasoline on the still conscious girl, and set her on fire.

“She was still conscious, it could have been 10, 20, 30 seconds – she was still moving,” the judge said at Toben’s sentencing.

The judge accused Toben of hatching the plan to kill his pregnant girlfriend because “he wanted a free, happy life which he had control over.” As for Mueller the judge said he “acted for the sole purpose of taking pleasure in the destruction of another human being’s life.”

Both men were sentenced to 14 years in prison….…

Carrie Bradshaw-Crowther

UPDATE – Bradshaw-Crowther was found alive and safe Monday in Boone, NC. A post on her brother’s Facebook page indicates that ” Carrie is presently hospitalized and is receiving much needed medical care….While it is unfortunate, we no longer expect a new addition to our family and ask for your continued prayers. We respect the HIPPA [sic] laws and we feel that releasing any more information should be in Carrie’s discretion after she has the opportunity to heal.”

SALISBURY, NC – About an hour before her scheduled 6:00 a.m. C-section last Tuesday, 49-year-old Carrie Bradshaw-Crowther disappeared.

As those of you obsessed with fertility and baby production already have concluded, Bradshaw-Crowther’s pregnancy is considered high risk; additionally, according to her 26-year-old daughter Lauren Lusk, her mother has a medical condition that requires a C-section.

Lusk and her wife Shelbi drove into Salisbury the preceding Saturday to help get the house ready for the baby; early Tuesday, she (and, presumably, Shelbi) ran out to gas up her vehicle for the drive to Charlotte.…

Dynel LaneLONGMONT, CO — Police have arrested 34-year-old Dynel Lane after they say she cut a baby out of a pregnant woman after luring the victim to her home under the pretense of selling baby clothes.

The 26-year-old victim, who was seven months pregnant, went to Lane’s home after responding to a Craigslist ad for baby clothes. Once there, police allege Lane attacked the woman and cut her fetus from her womb.

Police say that Lane’s husband drove her and the baby to the hospital where Lane carried in the victim’s dead baby and told hospital staff that she had suffered a miscarriage.

The victim was able to call 911 from Lane’s home where police would find her beaten and stabbed. She was taken to the hospital where she underwent surgery and is expected to survive.

Kareem GordonOrlando, FL – Police have arrested a 28-year-old man after he allegedly attacked his pregnant sister for eating his chicken nuggets without his permission.

According to reports, Kareem Gordon became furious after he found his 25-year-old sister had eaten his chicken nuggets. After arguing over the nugget faux pas, Gordon followed his sister into her bedroom, yelling “I will punch you down.” He didn’t follow through with that specific threat, but he reportedly grabbed his sister by her neck, pushed her into a nightstand, making her fall to the ground.

Gordon told police he didn’t attack his sister, who is four months pregnant, but was merely trying to have a civil discussion when she slammed the bedroom door in his face. He said she fell after he shoved open the door. Police arrested Gordon anyway, charging him with aggravated battery on a pregnant person. He was booked into the Orange County jail on no bond.

Seems as if Gordon has a history of assaulting women, police saying he has a previous domestic violence incident on record with his wife. …

Shavaughn RobinsonRichmond, VA – Shavaughn Robinson has been accused of giving birth to a baby girl while at work, and then tossing the infant into a dumpster “like common household trash.”

Robinson was working in the Lee Medical Building as a massage therapist last week when she went into the bathroom and gave birth to a baby girl.  Robinson put her daughter in a bathroom trash can, covered her with paper towels, tied the trash bag closed and tossed it in a dumpster behind the building.

A cleaning crew says they saw the 27-year-old cleaning up blood in the bathroom, but say Robinson told them she was having stomach problems. Police were not called until later that evening, after a janitor found the dead baby in the dumpster.

The medical examiner has ruled that the baby died of asphyxiation, and police have classified the baby’s death as a homicide. Robinson has only been charged with concealment of a dead body at this point, but more charges are likely. While in court the other day, Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Janae Craddock asked the judge that Robinson be held without bond as she was considered a flight risk.…

Ireland — A pregnant mother of two boys became so depressed after learning that she was pregnant with twin boys that she threw herself off a cliff.

The last anyone heard from 35-year-old Anna Byrne was on March 7 when she told her husband she was going to the grocery store. “At the end of the call, I told her to phone anytime if there was anything,” Terry Byrne said. “We told each other that we loved each other and she said ‘I’ll see ya later'”.

He wouldn’t realize his wife was missing until later that day when she did not pick up one of their sons from school. He called the supermarket, friends and maternity wards, but was unable to locate her. Around midnight, a friend would find her car parked near a cliff-top at Howth summit. Inside the car, an undated suicide note was found.

A search and rescue operation was organized, but was called off at 3:30 that morning. Four hours later, a helicopter would spot Byrne’s body at the base of the cliff.…

WALKER, LA — A man in Louisiana has been arrested after he allegedly stabbed his pregnant wife in the abdomen and then cut out their unborn child.

On Tuesday, police responded to an emergency call at the home of 31-year-old Jeffrey Reynolds and his pregnant wife. Once there, they would find that Reynolds had done the unthinkable to his pregnant wife.

“His wife was on the floor he took a sharp instrument and actually had cut her open – her stomach area and pulled the baby out.” said Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard.

The 28-year-old woman, who was 7 1/2 months pregnant, was rushed to the hospital where she is currently in stable condition. Sadly, the baby died despite attempts to save it.

“I’ve seen crime scenes before but this one was very challenging, I mean they all are, but this one was one that I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this,” said Ard.

Reynolds was still on the scene when police arrived and was very combative with the arresting officers.…

Mount Clemens, MI — A 29-year-old man has admitted to getting his girlfriend’s 11-year-old daughter pregnant.

On Tuesday, Trevaun C. Brooks pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct. Because the victim was under the age of 13, Brooks is facing a mandatory minimum term of 25 years in prison, up to life, when he is sentenced on Sept. 27.

Prosecutors say Brooks had sex with the child in her bedroom last year while living with his girlfriend and her daughter. The victim, now 12, gave birth in August and medical tests proved that the child was his.  The girl told investigators she didn’t even know she was pregnant until she gave birth.

After giving birth, the victim and her baby were removed from her mother’s home and placed in the care of state protection services. However, they are both expected to be placed back with the girl’s mother at a later date.

Brooks was a fugitive for almost a month after tests proved he had sex with the 11-year-old, but he was arrested in September after police found him living with another girlfriend.…

Houston, TX — A drunk pregnant woman in Houston is facing multiple charges after she stumbled into a tattoo parlor looking to get pierced.

Police say that at around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, 20-year-old Stephanie Santana, who is 7-months pregnant, pulled up to a tattoo parlor and stumbled inside to see how long it would take to get a piercing.

Santana needed it done in a hurry because she was a responsible, drunk, pregnant woman driving in the early morning hours with her 1-year-old daughter. Leaving her child unattended in the car for too long would just be bad parenting.

The employees, noticing she was drunk, told her that they would not be able to help her and told her to get out of the store. Police were called after an employee discovered the child in the car and mommy passed out in the driver’s seat with the car idling and the door wide open.

When police arrived, they found Santana still sleeping in the idling car with her daughter and woke her up.…

Warren, MI — A 22-year-old pregnant woman and her unborn child are lucky to be alive after the expectant mother survived being abducted, set on fire and then shot.

The woman, who is 9-months pregnant, told police that the incident started after seeing a movie with her baby’s father and dropping him off at his new girlfriend’s home.

After pulling into the garage and getting out of the car, the garage door unexpectedly closed and someone grabbed her by the throat, put a gun to her head and told her to get on the ground.

According to Warren Police Commissioner Jere Green, duct tape was placed over her mouth and wrapped around her hands and feet. She was then blindfolded, placed in the back of her car and driven to an alley in Detroit.

The woman said her kidnapper had a male voice and implied that this was happening because of her pregnancy. He asked how far along she was before she felt lighter fluid being poured over her. To her horror, the next thing she heard was a match being struck before she was set on fire.…
