Michael Wilson Jr. Charged With Murder After Human Head Falls Out Of Trash Bag

A Memphis man who went to police after he saw a severed head in man’s backyard says it’s an image he can’t forget.

Michael-Wilson-JrSaturday, police found the severed head and a body at a home in the 3800 block of Dunn Avenue and arrested the man who lives there.

Michael Wilson, Jr., is now facing charges of second-degree murder and abuse of a corpse.

Lacedric Ruffin said he went to Wilson’s home on Dunn to pick up some scrap metal Wilson said he could have.

While he was loading items on to his truck, he noticed Wilson pull a large black bag out of a garbage can and try to place it in a metal bucket.

Ruffin said the bag started ripping, and a head fell out of it.

“I’m like, man, what the hell you got going on, bro? He said something like he didn’t mean to kill him. I said, kill who brother? I don’t want to know who that is, I don’t want to know. You don’t got to tell me,” Ruffin said.

He said Wilson told him there were also two hands inside the garbage bag.

He thinks Wilson was planning on putting the severed head on the back of his truck along with everything else.

“If that bag hadn’t busted, I would have had a head going to the junk yard,” said Ruffin.

Ruffin, who is on parole, said his fingerprints were on everything in Wilson’s backyard and he went straight to police to let them know he had nothing to do with what was going on at Wilson’s house.

Wilson is being held on $2 million bond.

The victim has been identified as 48-year-old Andre Cole.

Girl, 16, Charged As Adult After Killing Man Selling PlayStation

A 16-year-old girl, who police say shot and killed a man who was trying to sell his PlayStation system over Craigslist, will be charged as an adult.

Nathaniel-VivianOn Tuesday, the Fulton County district attorney’s office released a statement saying it would pursue full charges against the girl, whose name has not yet been release.

“This case has been forwarded to our office for review,” District Attorney Paul L. Howard Jr. said in the statement. “After consulting with the Sandy Springs Police Department, we have determined that the suspects in this matter should be prosecuted together. As such, we have decided to seek prosecution against the 16-year-old minor as an adult.”

Howard’s office said an SB440 hearing, used to determine whether a minor can be prosecuted as an adult, is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Sept. 23 in the Fulton County Courthouse. The hearing will be in courtroom 8C.

Sandy Springs Police say the 16-year-old — along with her 20-year-old boyfriend Nathaniel Vivian — shot and killed 28-year-old Daniel John Zeitz last Friday as part of a botched robbery. The couple attempted to strong-arm a PS4 gaming system that Zeitz advertised for sale on Craigslist.

Zeitz, an avid gamer, was from Roswell.

According to police, Zeitz met the couple at about 9:30 p.m. last Friday at an apartment complex on Treelodge Parkway.

Sandy Springs police Sgt. Ron Momon said the pair tried to rob Zeitz of the PS4, and Vivian, who was in the driver’s seat of a car, struggled with Zeitz, who was standing outside the car, for the gaming system.

During the struggle, the girl fired a shot from a .25 caliber handgun, and the bullet passed through Vivian’s hand and struck Zeitz in the side of his chest, killing him.

Vivian and the girl were later arrested when they went to Northside Hospital for treatment of Vivian’s gunshot wound to the hand, Momon said.

Momon said Vivian claimed to be a robbery victim, but upon further questioning by detectives, “told them he was shot while he and his girlfriend were at the Legends of Dunwoody Apartments to rob a man of his PS4 video gaming system that was advertised on Craigslist.”

The 16-year-old’s 16-month-old baby was only a few feet away at the time of the robbery and shooting, according to Sandy Springs police Sgt. Ron Momon.

Momon said Vivian did not have an adult criminal record prior to the robbery and shooting. He also said he didn’t know if Vivian was the father of the 16-month-old child, who was turned over to family members after the shooting.

He declined to release any more details about the 16-year-old, but said she is currently being held at the Metro Regional Detention center in Atlanta.

Vivian is being held without bond in the Fulton County Jail.

The gun was recovered from the suspects’ car.

Zeitz was known by the name “Phobos” in online gaming circles, and one of his online gaming teammates set up a GoFundMepage to raise money for Zeitz’s funeral expenses. By Monday afternoon, the page had raised more than $15,000.

A video about Zeitz’s killing posted by a friend Saturday on YouTube has been viewed nearly 20,000 times.

Convicted Killer Joseph Oberhansley Allegedly Murders Fiance, Eats Her Brains

A convicted Indiana killer faces ghastly, new murder charges after allegedly killing — then eating — the girlfriend who’d posted his bond on earlier charges.

n-CANNIBALKILELR-largeA probable cause statement released Monday and obtained by WAVE3 says Joseph Oberhansley allegedly stabbed his girlfriend Tammy Jo Blanton to death before eating portions of her brain, lungs, and heart.

Blanton called Jeffersonville police at 3 a.m. on Sept. 11th saying Oberhansley, 33, was trying to get inside her home. Police sent him away, but they returned at 10 a.m. to check on Blanton at the urging of her coworkers.

When officers arrived, they found Blanton’s bloodied body in a bathtub with sections of her skull cut out. According to the report: “[Oberhansley] further admitted to cooking a section of her brain and eating it.”

Oberhansley has a long criminal history going back to at least 2000 when he was convicted of manslaughter and attempted murder for killing his then-girlfriend Sabrina Elder, 17, and critically wounding his mother, the Desert News reported at the time.

Just days before the killing, Elder had given birth to Oberhansley’s child.

He was released on parole in 2012, but in 2013 he was in trouble for allegedly choking out another patron in a bar and resisting arrest. He was naked during the attack.

Two months ago, Oberhansley was arrested following erratic driving that sparked a slow-speed police chase. Blanton paid a $1,000 bond to secure his release.

“I’m his fiancée,” Blanton said in court on July 23 before posting the bond.

Clark County Prosecutor Jeremy Mull said he had attempted to raise the bond when he discovered Oberhansley faced charges for allegedly attacking the customer in the bar last year. Despite his pleas for a higher bond, Mull told WAVE3 that another prosecutor lowered the bond, allowing Oberhansley to walk free. That prosecutor has now resigned.

“I felt he was dangerous, I was right, he was,” Mull told the station. “And he was released without my knowledge. That devastates me.”

edge. That devastates me.”

News: Woman tells cops she has no idea how that dead body ended up in her trunk … and, the cops believe her

0

Don’t you hate when you walk back to your car after shopping, pop the trunk to put the groceries inside, and come face to face with the corpse of your neighbor? That will ruin your whole afternoon! And it’s what one woman in Los Angeles says happened to her at a local Walmart.

ssao0kk7ywsptnkjpa3f

The body was reportedly found inside a gold Lexus GS300. Although the woman says she discovered the body after opening the trunk, Riverside County Sheriff’s Office said the victim was likely killed where the woman lived. Which would make sense as KCAL also reported the woman told witnesses she knew the victim as her neighbor.

Sgt. Dave Amador of the Riverside Police Department told the news channel that he found the circumstances of the case to be unique. It doesn’t seem like people discovering dead bodies in their trunks is exactly commonplace.

It’s very unusual, it’s one of a kind. I mean, we do get bodies in trunks. But to open it up and say they know him. And didn’t know they were in there, that’s unusual.

So, if the man in the trunk was killed back in Pomona, where the woman lives—why didn’t she notice? Well, she apparently told police she had smelled something funny in the car, and yet it appears she never actually felt the need to investigate.

Now, I’ve never had a dead body in my trunk, but I imagine some pine scented air fresheners are not going to make that smell tolerable enough for me to put it off while I visit the local big box store. Just sayin’.

Timothy Jones Jr Admits To Killing His Five Children, Dumping Their Bodies

0

Authorities believe a South Carolina father killed his five children before driving to Alabama and dumping their bodies on a dirt road in a rural area.

Timothy-Jones-JrAn Alabama Department of Public Safety spokesman told the Associated Press that Timothy Ray Jones Jr., 32, led police to the site near the town of Camden where the bodies were found. The site was off a two-lane highway, said Alabama Department of Public Safety spokesman Sgt. Steve Jarrett.

Authorities in South Carolina and Mississippi said that Jones has been charged with child neglect and additional charges are expected to be lodged in connection with the children’s deaths.

The children ranged from 1 to 8 years old and were reported missing by their mother on Sept. 3, authorities said.

“This is a very tragic situation,” Wilcox County (Ala.) District Attorney Michael Jackson said. “These kids’ lives were snuffed out before they had a chance to enjoy life. Justice will be served.”

Police have not released details on how the children died. Lexington County (S.C.) Coroner Earl Wells was arranging for the children’s bodies to be taken back to South Carolina for autopsies and identification Tuesday night, sheriff’s officials said.

At the scene where authorities said the bodies were found, investigators could be seen late Tuesday working in a clearing at the top of a hill lit by floodlights.

Jones was being held in Smith County, Mississippi, awaiting extradition to South Carolina, the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation said in a news release.

Jones was detained in Smith County on Saturday after being stopped at a motor vehicle checkpoint near Raleigh, Mississippi, and charged with drunken driving, Smith County Sheriff Charlie Crumpton said in a news release.

Crumpton said Jones became agitated when a deputy questioned him about an odor of chemicals coming from the Cadillac Escalade he was driving. The deputy found what were believed to be chemicals used to manufacture methamphetamine and a substance believed to be the street drug Spice, a form of synthetic marijuana, Crumpton said. A sheriff’s office investigator was called and found what appeared to be bleach, muriatic acid, blood and possible body fluids, he said.

During a background check, police discovered that Jones was wanted in South Carolina “regarding a welfare concern of his children,” who were on a national missing persons list, the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.

Investigators from several departments and the FBI started looking for the missing children on Monday, Crumpton said. He said the children’s decomposed bodies were found in individual plastic garbage bags.

Jarrett told a news conference that authorities were not sure why Jones drove through Alabama.

Jones had joint custody of the children and is divorced from their mother, police said. They said he told neighbors that he and the children were moving to another state.

Marlene Hyder and her husband, Johnny Hyder, said Jones and his wife moved into a house next to them about seven years ago in Batesburg-Leesville, South Carolina, 25 miles west of Columbia. They said Jones told them he worked in computers. Two years ago, the wife moved in with a male neighbor and Tim Jones moved away with the children, the Hyders said.

Johnny Hyder said the children were often dressed in dirty clothes and were seen home at all hours of the day because Tim Jones had said he didn’t believe in the public schools. Hyder said Jones was constantly looking for a reason to argue and often threatened to call the police. He said Jones approached him with a gun on his hip one day and was angry about something, but Hyder couldn’t remember what it was. When Hyder said he was going to call police, he said Jones told him it was only a BB gun.

“It wasn’t a BB gun,” Hyder said. “It was a real gun. I know what one looks like, but I didn’t want to cause any more trouble.”

Marlene Hyder said Jones threatened to kill one of their dogs when it briefly went onto his property.

“He was a nut,” she said.

Marlene Hyder said she also remembered a day when one of the Jones’ younger children came over to the Hyders’ house and tried to drink out of one of their outdoor spigots. He was dirty and disheveled and ran back to his house when she tried to speak to him, she said.

A “no trespassing” sign was posted near the driveway of a house where the Hyders said Tim Jones’ ex-wife still lived with the other neighbor. Several people were seen walking around the yard, but none responded to questions from a reporter.

Two elementary school girls, aged 11 and 12, apparently jumped to their deaths from an apartment building in Tokyo’s Ota Ward, police said Saturday.

According to police, the girls—who were classmates—were found dead in the asphalt parking lot near the entrance to the building at around 3:30 p.m. Friday, TBS reported.

The building is nine stories high. Police said the girls appear to have jumped from the stairwell between the 7th and 8th floors. TBS quoted police as saying the girls’ shoes and a suicide note were left at the scene but declined to give details about what the note said.

Police said the 11-year-old girl lived with her family in the apartment building, while her 12-year-old classmate lived nearby.

A school official told media that he was unaware of any bullying incidents involving the girls who were both at school on Friday.
