REEDSBURG, WI – Police have arrested a couple after their 15-year-old son starved to death during the family’s religious-based fast.

God tells people to do wacky shit every day; he has been the cray-cray-whisperer for millennia. And people listen; boy, do they ever.

The Big Man has been on a roll ever since he whispered in Abraham’s ear:

“Then God said, ‘Take your son, your only son, whom you love— Isaac— and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.'” (Genesis 22:2)

…and Abraham grabbed Isaac and some camping gear and got to steppin’.

Of course, anyone who has spent any time in Sunday School knows how that old story plays out: right before the knife comes down on lil’ Isaac, God busts that psych-move, gets a good belly-laugh, and spares Isaac, much to the chagrin of a nearby ram, who got the honor of dying for God instead.

You’d think at some point, people would stop listening to the ol’ Cosmic Jokester, since his commands always seem to end with someone dying a horrible death, but no.…

RIVER FALLS, WI – Police in Wisconsin have arrested a roofer after they say he killed a co-worker with a circular saw.

Two roofers got into some kind of altercation while working on a roof Monday afternoon, leading to one man dead and the other in jail for his murder.

Police say they were called to the home at around 4:30 p.m. and found 37-year-old Israel Valles-Flores unconscious with severe lacerations to his face and neck.

Nothing could be done to save the man and he would be pronounced dead at the scene.

His co-worker, 24-year-old Maguel Nabarro, has been accused of killing Valles-Flores with a circular saw.

Nabarro was charged with intentional homicide and placed in the Pierce County Jail. Police have not given a motive behind the attack, stating the investigation is still ongoing.…

MADISON, WI – a nurse has been suspended after five infants were discovered with a variety of injuries including a fractured skull, rib and arm.

An unnamed nurse at UnityPoint Meriter hospital has been suspended after being suspected of causing serious injuries to at least five babies at the hospital’s newborn intensive care unit.

The first case of possible abuse was in April of last year, with another being reported that same year and another this January. None of these injuries were shown to a child abuse expert and explained away by the hospital.

Then in February, another report of abuse came in after a nurse noticed bruising on the arm of an infant. Like the cases reported the year before, doctor’s determined the injuries were not from abuse.

In this case, the arm injuries were explained as possibly being caused by the baby “clutching wires or peripheral intravenous device arm board used for stabilization.”

The next day, another infant was found with unidentified bruising. This time a doctor said it may have been caused by tightly wrapped blankets.…

MILWAUKEE, WI – A woman in Milwaukee has been accused of killing her son by setting him on fire in a bathtub inside their apartment.

The Milwaukee Fire Department was dispatched to 23-year-old Amelia DiStasio’s residence Thursday morning after getting a call regarding smoke coming from her apartment.

When they made their way inside, they found the lifeless body of DiStasio’s 4-year-old son in a bathtub. The poor kid, who suffered from autism, had been burned alive.

Reports say his hands had been bound behind his back with several belts, and a plastic garbage bag had been pulled over his head before he was set on fire.

Also in the bathroom was an open bottle of cooking oil sitting in the sink, a pet guinea pig drowned in its cage by the tub, and the apartment’s smoke detector submerged in water.

A witness told officers she saw a “frazzled” woman jump from the window of the apartment building before firefighters arrived. DiStasio was taken into custody later that day after she was found walking down the street.…

GREENDALE, WI – A woman in Wisconsin has been arrested after she allegedly drugged her 10-year-old son before sexually assaulting him.

According to reports, the boy had stayed with his mother, 35-year-old Tara Gotovnik, for two nights in August.

When his father picked him up, the boy told his father he “never wanted to go back to Gotovnik’s residence again.”

When asked why, the boy told his father his mother had drugged and sexually assaulted him.

The boy’s father took him to police where he told investigators that after he drank a slushy made a friend of Gotovnik’s, he threw up. He said that’s when Gotovnik gave him a sleeping pill to help him go to sleep.

The pill had the opposite effect, the boy said, causing him to stay awake and feel sick. That’s when Gotovnik told him to come to the couch where she removed her shirt and had him perform a sex act.

According to the criminal complaint, Gotovnik then instructed the boy through the use of sex toys, telling him they could “go online and make money for doing it.”

A search warrant was executed at Gotovnik’s residence where police found sex toys and drugs. …

Milwaukee, WI — A father frustrated with his son’s heroin addiction admitted to police that he shot the 27-year-old in the arm, but claims it was an accident.

Richard Matte told police he just wanted to scare his son by shooting into a wall.

Zak Matte reportedly told police his father entered his bedroom while he was injecting heroin into his right arm. Richard asked Zak if any money he had recently given to him had been used to buy heroin. Zak replied that it hadn’t — it was used to buy pot.

Zak claims his father asked him to turn and look at a hole in the wall. He then shot him.

“I shot my son in the arm on accident,” Richard told a 911 dispatcher. At some point in the conversation with the dispatcher, Richard expressed his frustration with his son’s drug use and said he just snapped. “I just got pushed to the point where I couldn’t take it anymore.”

Richard was charged with one count of reckless endangerment and remains free on $15,000 bail.…

Green Bay, WI — Jonathan Schrap, 24, was sentenced to three and half years behind bars Friday, for amputating a woman’s pinky finger with a machete last year in some sort of retarded ritual to honor a fellow Juggalo.

I don’t know how Morbid missed this one…..

Back in August of 2016, Schrap and a few other Juggalos held a memorial service of sorts for a friend of theirs that had passed that year.

As part of the “ritual”, 27-year-old Shelby Neuens offered to let Schrap drink her blood. So he slashed her on the right forearm, leaving her “bleeding profusely” from a one-inch laceration.

The group then pondered on the idea of amputating a body part, to show how damn serious they were about this whole memorial thing. Again, Neuens, a true team player, stepped up and offered her pinky.

Took Schrap a couple of swings with a machete before the digit was removed at the palm. Schrap then put the pinky in his freezer, saying he would cook it and eat it later.…

LAKE DELTON, WI – A Florida teen on vacation in Wisconsin died after trying to sled down a snow-covered water-slide.

The teen, 16-year-old Addison Williams, was with his brother and a friend Wednesday night when they  trespassed into a fenced-off area of Water and Theme Park.

The three boys climbed to the top of an 85-foot tall, snow-covered slide with intentions of sledding down it.

Two of the boys came to their senses and decided it was too dangerous, but Williams decided to go through with it.

He made it halfway down before his sled got stuck in the snow. As Williams tried freeing the sled, he fell over the side of the slide and died when he hit the ground 35-feet below.

According to Lake Delton Police Chief Daniel Hardman, the family were vacationing in the area to see snow. They were staying in a hotel near the park and were on the scene shortly after it happened.

The owner of the park said the fence and other safety measures were put in place for a reason, and there’s nothing more he could have done to prevent the boys from getting in.…

mary-martinezMILWAUKEE, WI — Two women have been charged in the death of a 7-year-old boy who was malnourished, burned with cigarettes and whipped with cords.

According to police, 44-year-old Etter Hughes moved from Arkansas to the rat-infested apartment of 47-year-old Mary Martinez, a woman she had met in prison.

Hughes brought along her 13-year-old son and the two younger sons of her cousin, who was moving to Wisconsin at a later time.

Almost immediately after moving in, 7-year-old Trevion and his 9-year-old brother suffered beatings at the hands of Martinez, and were routinely denied food.

Investigators say Martinez would kick them in the head, punch them in the back, burn them with cigarettes and whip them with electrical cords. Police say that at no time during this abuse did Hughes intervene.

That changed last week when Trevion was found unresponsive with his eyes were rolling back into his head.

When Martinez saw the boy’s condition, she allegedly told Etter she and the boys needed to get out of her house and to drop Trevion off in the woods.…

Sean FlowersMILWAUKEE, WI – A father has been charged with drowning his 3-month-old son in a pond during a family party.

According to reports, 25-year-old Sean Flowers was at a family party on Saturday when he got into an argument with his son’s mother.

Flowers grabbed his son and left the apartment, wading into a nearby storm water pond while the boy’s mother and family pleaded with him to stop.

Instead, Flowers sat down in the water up to his chest while holding his son beneath the surface.

“It was the most evil thing I’ve ever seen,” said a witness who watched the scene unfold from his window. “That baby cried all the way out into the water, then the crying stopped.”

Another witness followed Flowers into the pond in an unsuccessful attempt to get the baby.

“I saw a baby floating in the water. I grabbed it. I tried to swim away with it. He lunged at me and took the baby again and swam farther, deeper,” the witness said.…

Kali BookeyMADISON, WI – Police have charged a 14-year-old girl with attempted murder after she tried to kill her brother’s girlfriend by slitting her throat and telling her she was a psychopath looking for her first kill.

According to investigators, Kali Bookey called police Wednesday morning to report that two men in a pickup truck had tried to abduct her while she was riding her bike. She claimed she talked the men into abducting her brother’s 15-year-old girlfriend instead since she was home alone.

When police arrived at the girlfriend’s trailer, they found her bleeding profusely in her bedroom and she was rushed to the hospital. There she would tell investigators that it was Bookey who had attacked her.

She said she was asleep when Bookey woke her up and put her hands over her mouth. The two got into a struggle and Bookey punched the girl multiple times in the face and broke two bowls over her head. She said Bookey used a shard from one of the broken bowls to slit her throat at least four times.…

Anthony ZingalePLYMOUTH, WI – After 19-year-old Anthony Zingale was accused of trying to rape a woman at knife point, he produced this hilarious mugshot in which he can be seen blubbering like a baby.

Police were called to a home last month by a man claiming Zingale had just tried to rape his wife in their bathroom. When police questioned the woman, she said she was in the bathroom when a drunken Zingale walked in brandishing a knife while exposing himself.

She claims Zingale put the knife to her neck and threatened to cut her if she did not have sex with him. The woman said she told Zingale they should move to the bedroom so they’d be more comfortable. Once they were out of the bathroom, the woman began screaming for help and alerted other people at the party.

Zingale, who happened to be attending the party with his mother, told police a different version of events. He admitted he’d been drinking, but the entire situation was just a misunderstanding.…
