Sebastian AlonzoHENDERSONVILLE, TN – A 21-year-old man allegedly tried raping a 7-year-old girl and received a mugshot and a nice shiner for his efforts.

According to reports, Sebastian Alonzo was spending the night at a home where the 7-year-old lived. At some point, the victim’s father caught Alonzo attempting to rape his daughter.

The father called police while also detaining Alonzo until they arrived. Alonzo was charged with attempted rape of a child and being held in jail on a $250,000 bond. He is due in court on June 22.

Investigators are asking anyone with information regarding this crime to call the Hendersonville Crime Stoppers at 615-573-5400.

All things considered, Alonzo got off lucky. The last guy we reported on who got caught raping a child was turned into a monster from a Guillermo del Toro movie by the victim’s father. Also, in 2012, a father caught a man raping his 4-year-old daughter and proceeded to beat him to death with his bare hands.

J.D. ByramGREENBRIER, TN – Two teens have died after authorities say they drank a mixture of Mountain Dew and racing fuel called “dewshine”.

Last Thursday morning, police were called to the home of 16-year-old Logan Stephenson after his family found him dead in his bed.

At around the same time, police were called to the home of Logan’s best friend, J.D. Byram, after the teen started having seizures. Byram was taken to the hospital where he would die Monday night.

The following day, the Greenbrier police chief said they had received information that the two boys were with a group of teenagers that had been drinking Mountain Dew mixed with racing fuel.

“We have certainly seen methanol infections, but nothing like this. I mean, this was a product that was almost 100 percent methanol, which is quite unusual,” said Dr. Donna Seger, the Director of the Tennessee Poison Center.

She added that drinking racing fuel can make someone feel drunk, along with blurred vision, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. But it can also cause seizures, permanent blindness, coma and, as these two boys found out, death.…

butter churnerOOLTEWAH, TN – Three juveniles from the Ooltewah High School basketball team have been accused of raping a 15-year-old teammate with a pool cue.

The alleged hazing incident happened last week while the team was playing in a tournament in Gatlinburg. The boys were staying in a rental cabin when – according to a family member of the victim – the 15-year-old freshman “was tortured by three of his teammates.”

This “torture” involved the boy being beaten and raped with a wooden pool cue. The boy’s coach took the boy to the hospital following the assault, but the victim did not reveal the exact details of what had happened to his coach or the hospital staff.

He ended up being treated and released, but brought back to the hospital the next day after he collapsed. That’s when the true severity of the boy’s injuries were discovered.

“He was taken by ambulance to the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville,” said the family member. “He had to undergo emergency surgery, as his colon and bladder were ruptured.”

Once it was revealed that three of the boy’s teammates had churned his butter with a wooden pool cue, police were called to investigate.…

Reginald Eugene GregoryNASHVILLE, TN – Reginald Gregory is in jail a third time for rape, this time the victim was a 60-year-old woman confined to a wheelchair.

Before we get to Gregory’s latest victim, here’s what he’s been up to for the last 10 years or so.

He was convicted of felony rape back in 2003, but was let out early. Then, in 2012, he was convicted of aggravated rape and sentenced to six years in prison. Want to take a guess how many years he served? If your answer was not “two” then you would be wrong.

Earlier this month, Gregory was on a city bus when he struck up a conversation with a 60-year-old woman in a wheelchair. He offered to help the woman with her groceries, but when they got inside her apartment, he showed his true intentions.

Police say Gregory allegedly dumped the woman out of her wheelchair and began to choke her before he carried the poor the woman to her bedroom and raped her. The victim told police she begged Gregory to stop and that the attack caused her a severe amount of pain.…

Anna YoccaMURFREESBORO, TN – Police in Tennessee have charged Anna Yocca with attempted first-degree murder after she tried using a coat hanger to kill her unborn child and, well, made a mess.

Back in September, the 31-year-old filled a bathtub with water and tried to abort her 24-week-old baby by stabbing it to death with a coat hanger.

She got scared when she started bleeding, so she had her boyfriend take her to the hospital where she told the staff she wanted to terminate her pregnancy. Instead, doctors delivered her 1.5 pound baby boy.

Because of Yocca’s lack of follow-through, the boy will now need medical support for the rest of his life due to the damage Yocca had done to his lungs, eyes, and heart.

“The whole time she was concerned for her health, her safety and never gave any attention to the health and safety to the unborn child,” said Sergeant Kyle Evans.

Police arrested Yocca on Wednesday, charging her with attempted first-degree murder. She was ordered jailed in the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center on a $200,000 bond.…

RottweilerJACKSON, TN – A few hours after 57-year-old Anthony Riggs had adopted a Rottweiler, the dog had mauled the man to death in his home.

At around 10 a.m. Thursday morning, Riggs adopted a 5-year-old male Rottweiler from Jackson-Madison County Rabies Control.  Riggs, described as a dog lover by his family, was not a stranger to dogs and had previously owned a Rottweiler, a Doberman, and a wolf-mix.

Riggs’ wife, Kathy, called him at around 1 p.m. but no one answered the phone. When she stopped by their home with a co-worker a couple hours later, she found out why; her husband had been mauled to death by the dog inside the home.

“The husband was all chewed up,” Madison County Sheriff’s Dept. spokesman Tom Mapes. “There was blood everywhere. The sheriff’s report said [Riggs] was found ‘mortally wounded on the floor from the dog attack.'”

The dog turned on Kathy and her co-worker, biting them both before running outside. The co-worker would later post on Facebook that the dog wasn’t showing signs of aggression before it bit her and Riggs’ wife.…

According to reports, police responding to a shooting call at a trailer park found McKayla Dyer on the ground with a single gunshot wound to the chest. She would be rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.
