Mom Gave Kid Away To Heroin User To Live Life Of Normal Teenager

A suburban St. Louis teen mom desperate to live the life of a normal young adult gave away her toddler to a known heroin user, then claimed the woman kidnapped the tot, cops say.

Desiree-CozzoniDesiree Ann-Marie Cozzoni, 18, could only smile as she sat for her mugshot while being booked on several misdemeanor charges.

But court papers paint a sinister plot of a young woman more concerned with partying than caring for her 16-month-old son.

Earlier this month, Cozzoni drew up non-legal papers granting a heroin user, who’d lost custody of her own kids, rights to care for her child so Cozzoni could live the life of “a normal teenager,” court documents obtained by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch read.

Cozzoni even changed her phone number to prevent the woman, described as unemployed, homeless and living in motels, from contacting her.

The woman bought heroin daily and frequently used it in front of Cozzoni and the boy, both of whom crashed with the woman often, the newspaper reported.

Eventually, Cozzoni called St. Charles cops to report the woman had kidnapped her son.

Police say the report was bogus and charged Cozzoni with making a false report, endangering the welfare of a child and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.

Cops found a pipe with marijuana residue in the teen’s purse when they booked her into jail, the Post-Dispatch reported.

Cozzoni posted $2,500 jail on Tuesday and was released. It’s unclear who now has custody of the boy, but Cozzoni, a frequent Facebook user, wrote that her first supervised visit with the child was scheduled for Thursday.

“I just wish I weren’t a bad mom,” she wrote Tuesday evening. “I wish none of this happened. I just want my baby back.”

Wannabe Playboy Model In Ecstasy Trafficking Bust

A wannabe Playboy model and a male associate were arrested by federal agents after flying into a California airport from Las Vegas in a private plane loaded with a massive cache of Ecstasy pills and powder, according to court records.

Acting on information that the plane may have been involved with the smuggling of drugs or currency, investigators questioned the duo upon landing last Thursday at John Wayne Airport in Orange County.

kristaboseleyfb1 (1)Krista Boseley, 30, and pilot Gilles Lapointe, 61, were both carrying large sums of cash that they claimed to have won the prior evening at the Bellagio casino. The pair, both of whom are Canadian citizens, subsequently had their bags searched after a drug detection dog alerted to the presence of narcotics.

As detailed in a U.S. District Court complaint, agents found about 30,000 Ecstasy pills in Lapointe’s luggage, and another 28,000 pills inside the plane. The aircraft (seen below) also contained nearly 90 pounds of powdered Ecstasy and a “GPS Tracker Detector” that, investigators allege, is used by drug smugglers “to determine whether law enforcement has placed a tracking device on their vehicles or planes.”

Boseley, pictured above, and Lapointe were arrested after agents found the Ecstasy stash. Boseley denied knowledge of the drugs being trafficked or “anything illegal.” Lapointe, however, appears to have made incriminating statements to agents, though they are not detailed in the felony complaint charging the duo with conspiracy to distribute narcotics.

kristaboseleyfrontFollowing Boseley’s arrest, investigators learned that she had been stopped last year by Los Angeles Police Department officers who found her with more than $40,000 in cash. “Boseley stated at that time that the money belonged to someone else.” She was also found in possession of a receipt showing that Lapointe’s plane had been refueled at the Santa Barbara airport.

Boseley, who has worked as a real estate agent in Vancouver, is a tattoo enthusiast who once posedfor a series of naked photos during a Playboy open call. Her Facebook page is filled with assorted affirmations and musings, like “Don’t judge someone because they sin differently than you.” In her last update, on October 3, Boseley reposted a graphic announcing, “Yes, I’m crazy. No, you can’t have some.”

A federal magistrate has ordered Lapointe locked up in advance of an October 24 preliminary hearing. Boseley’s custody status is not detailed in court records, nor is she listed among inmates being held by the federal Bureau of Prisons or the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

Mother Accused Of Separating Young Daughter’s Scalp From Her Skull

A Beaver County woman is facing charges after allegedly pulling her 6-year-old daughter’s hair so hard that she caused internal bleeding.

Brittany-RuckAccording to police, Brittany Ruck, 25, of Conway, is charged in the Aug. 31 incident.

The criminal complaint states the girl’s scalp was separated from her skull as a result of Ruck pulling on her hair.

“The head injury was described in medical terms as traction,” said Michael Priolo, of the Conway Police Department. “It is a separation between the scalp and skull which creates a void that fills with blood. The blood ended up pulling around the eyes, giving her raccoon eyes.”

Children’s Hospital alerted police while treating the girl.

According to the criminal complaint, the child told police Ruck had, “pulled her out of a chair by her hair for her inability to count to 12.”

“The female was having a difficult time counting to 12. She could count to 10 because she had 10 fingers,” said Priolo.

The child also said Ruck pulled her into a corner by her hair the next day.

The child spent several days at Children’s Hospital. She’s since been released and is staying with a relative.

Ruck has since admitted to pulling the girl’s hair on multiple occasions.

Police say she thought she wasn’t doing anything wrong.

“Her mother had assaulted her when she was younger, and she was going back to that, saying, ‘This is what happened to me and I’m still here,’” said Priolo.

Ruck has two other kids as well, ages 4 and 1. Neighbors say she just moved into her Catherine Drive home in the spring with the children and her fiancé. KDKA’s Amy Wadas knocked on the door, but no one was home.

Police believe Ruck’s fiancé wasn’t around during the abuse and probably won’t be charged.

Ruck is being held in the Beaver County Jail on $50,000 bond. She is charged with aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of children, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person.
