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.…

BRINNON, WA – A family of five are dead after the remote cabin they were staying in exploded.

Neighbors began calling 911 at around 1 a.m. Sunday to report hearing an explosion and finding the cabin was gone and that the hillside it was on was now on fire.

Seven local fire departments arrived to help put out the resulting fire, but the 250-square-foot cabin was a total loss.

Killed in the explosion were Jerry and Jenny Drake, both 42, and their three children, ages 2, 8, and 11.

Neighbors say the family had been staying at the cabin on the weekends for about the last year.

What caused the explosion has not been reported but as of right now it is being reported as an accident.

There was a propane tank at the property but it has not been determined whether the tank exploded causing the fire, or if a fire caused the tank to explode.

The Washington State Patrol Crime Lab and investigators from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives were called to the scene.…

SEATTLE, WA – A popular Youtuber has been arrested for his part in a bomb threat prank at a university campus.

I don’t normally report on the stupid shit Youtuber’s do because, well, it’s stupid. However, this particular incident is going to be an interesting one to watch.

But before I get into why, here’s some background info. For those of you unaware, there is a popular type of Youtuber out there now that just stream their daily lives 24/7. They are called IRL streamers with one of the more popular personalities being Ice Poseidon.

There are a slew of others trying to gain the same level of fame (and money) that Ice Poseidon has achieved doing this, one of them being Jammal Harraz. He goes by the name Arab Andy (or ISIS Poseidon) on-line.

One of the things he does is leave his text-to-speech on for donations –meaning that anyone watching can send audio to a speaker Harraz has attached to his jacket while making a donation. This isn’t anything new, as a lot of IRL streamers do this because of the awkward situations it creates while in public.…

SPOKANE, WA – Police have arrested a man after he beat the ever-living crap out of a toddler who made the grave mistake of interrupting him as he played a video game.

Police were called to Sacred Heart on Sunday after 22-year-old Brandon Oquendo brought in his girlfriend’s daughter who was suffering from a seizure.

When hospital staff examined the 21-month-old girl, they found she had multiple life-threatening injuries from suspected abuse, so they called police.

According to court documents, these injuries included two brain bleeds, a collapsed lung, bruises on her face, and hand size bruises on the front of both hips and above her privates.

When police interviewed the girl’s mother, she told them that Oquendo was babysitting the girl while she was at work. She said he had called her at work to inform her that her daughter was having a seizure.

She added that she recently confronted Oquendo over an increasing amount of bruises showing up on her daughter, and that he’d explained they were the result of the girl rough-housing with his son.…

EVERETT, WA – A 19-year-old has been accused of drowning his 6-year-old nephew in a bathtub before dumping his body in a dumpster.

According to reports, 19-year-old Andrew Henckel had been staying with his sister and her boyfriend for about a week when he was asked to babysit his sister’s autistic son, 6-year-old Dayvid Pakko.

When the boyfriend returned home after running errands he found Pakko was not inside the apartment. Henckel said he had fallen asleep on the couch and had no idea where Pakko may have wandered of to.

Henckel accompanied the boyfriend in searching for Pakko around the apartment complex for about 30 minutes before deciding to call police.

When investigators arrived on the scene and began searching for Pakko, they would find the missing boy’s body in a dumpster located 30 feet from the his apartment. This was also when police became very interested in Henckel.

Detectives were already focused on him since he was the last person to see Pakko alive, but he did something curious at the exact moment Pakko’s dead body was found in the dumpster.…

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.…

Bellingham, WA — A 29-year-old man told police he stabbed his mother to death because he’s a werewolf and she’s a vampire. Why, yes….. drugs may have played a part. How’d ya guess?

Sheaen Smith called 911 at about 2 p.m. Sunday, ranting about werewolves and vampires. When officers arrived at the home Smith shared with his mother, they found 57-year-old Aurora Lee Buol-Smith dead from multiple stab wounds. (Multiple = approximately 20). Several of those cuts, police say, were defensive wounds.

Officers made contact with Sheaen inside the home, and he apparently confessed to killing his mother…. in between delusional rants about werewolves and vampires and whatever else lives in a tweaker’s head. He was promptly arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder while armed with a deadly weapon.

Based on certain statements from Sheaen, investigators have reason to believe the motive, besides the whole vampire thing, was sexual in nature. Authorities have mentioned that it’s not clear if those statements were more delusions or actual facts, and they are waiting on the results of the autopsy.…

Vancouver, WA — Benjamin Walker, 27, is being held on $1 million bail after he admitted to choking his 78-year-old grandmother to death as she slept.

Walker, who lived in his grandmother’s garage, was apparently  just hanging out drinking beer early Monday, and decided he’d had enough of the woman’s nagging — she repeatedly asked him to turn off the lights and maybe take shorter showers — and “decided her and his fates.”

He entered her bedroom as she slept Monday morning, and choked the life out of her. But, BUT, he wanted to make sure she was good and dead, so he slit her throat with a kitchen knife, too, he said.

Grandma didn’t go quietly… police say Walker had numerous scratches on his chin and mouth. Damn shame he didn’t have a kitchen knife sticking out of his jugular.

After washing his hands, Walker reportedly walked to the Washougal Police department and confessed to the murder.

In court Tuesday, Walker’s court-appointed attorney claimed Walker was “remorseful and sad” about his grandmother’s death.…

Lynwood, WA — An unidentified 24-year-old woman was arrested Sunday after allegedly stabbing her Craigslist date, in a failed attempt to become a serial killer.

Police were called to a Walgreen’s store late that evening, where they found the woman’s 29-year-old victim with a stab wound to the chest.

The man told police he and the woman met on Craigslist after he made a post seeking friendship, and maybe some dating, but not sex. He said the two ended up at the Rodeo Inn, where he paid for a room. Probably most definitely not for sex, though.

They were lying on the bed together, he said, just talking, and the woman kept asking him if he was a serial killer. His answer, each time, was no.

After he told her “no” the last time, he says, the woman climbed on top of him and said, “Well, I am a serial killer!” and then proceeded to stab him in the chest with a pocket knife.

He managed to fight her off and escaped with a 1-2 inch laceration on his chest.…

mr-magooVANCOUVER, WA – A couple found their small dog dead and skinned in the back yard of their home Sunday morning.

John Gragg and his girlfriend, Susanne Baumann, said they let their Lhasa Apso and Pomeranian out to play on their six acres of fenced-in property. When they called the dogs in two hours later, only the Pomeranian returned.

The couple found the other dog, “Mr. Magoo,” dead and skinned near the back fence. The fur on his torso and upper legs had been cut off in knife-straight lines.

“It’s perfectly square,” said Gragg. “It looks like something was stuck in the side of the animal which could have been a knife or a shot to put the dog to sleep. It looked very professional.”

The couple took the dog to the vet who confirmed the injuries were “clearly” caused by a human. Gragg said he contacted the Clark County Sheriff’s office, but said deputies initially refused to investigate because the victim wasn’t human.

That changed on Tuesday when the Sheriff’s Office admitted they should have responded that day as animal cruelty is a crime and it’s law enforcement’s responsibility to investigate.…

pregnant-fireKENT, WA — Police say a suicidal pregnant woman set herself on fire Sunday evening, then gave birth to a baby boy who died “almost immediately” at the hospital

The woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition and gave birth to a baby boy. A little over two hours later, the baby died.

According to a King County Medical Examiner’s Office report, the boy died from prenatal asphyxia due to maternal thermal burns.

“It is early on the investigation, and it is not quite clear if any charges will be brought against the woman,” said police spokeswoman Melanie Robinson.…

James Leroy EvansOLYMPIA, WA – Police have arrested 33-year-old James Leroy Evans, accusing him of raping and killing a pit bull found hanged from a tree last month.

For those of you who may have missed the original story, a mountain biker found the a dog hanged from a tree on March 21. It was later determined that the dog had been “aggressively sexually violated” while restrained, and had died of asphyxiation.

“This is a truly horrific situation in all aspects,” the humane society’s Washington director, Dan Paul, said at the time. “To think about the suffering this dog experienced in her final moments, as well as knowing there’s an individual or individuals in our state who would perpetrate this type of abuse, is sickening. We are hopeful this reward will bring someone forward with information about this despicable crime.”

With a reward of $25,000 reward being offered to apprehend the person responsible, along with a spot on Washington’s Most Wanted, police where able to identify Evans as a suspect.

Turns out the dog was a 3-year-old pit bull named “Diamond” who was an emotional support animal for an 8-year-old boy.…
