Teen Accused Of Raping 5-Year-Old Cousin Before Strangling Her To Death, Hanging Her In Closet


Dallas police say the teen who is accused of killing his 5-year-old cousin admitted to raping her.

Angel-Sanches-ZentenoAngel Sanches-Zenteno, 17, has now been charged with aggravated sexual assault in addition to capital murder of Katherina Gonzalez.

Gonzalez was strangled to death, police say. Her body was found Sept. 1 hanging by a shirt in the closet of a vacant Lake Highlands apartment.

Sanches-Zenteno told police he was with the girl, but said another man who he identified only as “Carlos” was responsible for her death. He claimed Carlos forced him into a closet for more than a half hour while the girl was killed.

He had initially told police that he “did not rape” Katherina, according to police documents. He told another investigator that he did sexually assault the girl for “less than a minute,” but did so because the other man was holding him at gunpoint and told him to.

“At this time, the alleged second suspect has not yet been located,” police said in an arrest warrant affidavit.

Police took DNA samples from Sanches-Zenteno and sent them away to a lab for analysis. The lab matched his DNA to some found in the girl’s underwear.

‘Prayer Baby’ drowns in church’s baptism tank


A mother in Decatur, Ala., says her prayers were answered when, after years of trying, she had a baby boy nearly two years ago. But tragedy struck when Brayden King was left in the care of his teen sister at church on Friday: She lost track of him for a short while, and he was found dead in 33 inches of water in the church’s baptismal tank, reports Reuters. Brayden was 22 months old.

“I’ve been preaching 30 years, this is the first time in my ministry I’ve been speechless,” the pastor of the Pentecostal House of Prayer tells Al.com. “I know (God) is too wise to make mistakes, but in my humanity, I can’t lie. I’ve had to get on my knees.” He plans to do baptisms at another church for the time being, adds theChristian Post. “I don’t know how long it will take to heal.” An autopsy will likely be performed in the next few days.

Cobra Exacts Revenge on Chef


In what seems to be an absurd act of vengeance for decapitation, the head of an Indochinese spitting cobra attacked chef Pen Fan after being cut off in preparation of a special dish.


UntitledDiced snake soup is a delicacy in China and a highly sought-after dish in top-tier restaurants. The chef, who was from the Guangdong province, in southern China, was disposing of the severed head when the incident happened.

“We did not know what was happening but could hear screams coming from the kitchen,” said restaurant guest Lin Sun, 44. “There were calls for a doctor in the restaurant, but unfortunately by the time medical assistance arrived, the man had already died.”

“There was nothing that could be done to save the man. Only the anti-venom could have helped, but this was not given in time. It was just a tragic accident,” a police spokesman said.

The cobra head had been severed for 20 minutes when it bit Pen Fan. According to Hong-Chang Yang, a snake expert who has studied cobras for 40 years, all reptiles can function for up to an hour after being cut off from their bodies. Because their metabolism is slower, their internal organs remain functional for a longer period.

NC man confesses to 1997 murder after receiving texts from Walmart


A Watauga County man says texts from Walmart caused him to become paranoid about a murder he says he committed 17 years ago in Arizona.

According to the Charlotte Observer, Matthew Gibson was living in a small settlement near Boone when he felt he needed to divulge his secret.

630-18trrq-aust-138Gibson, 55, drove to Arizona and met with Detective Alicia Marquez of Winslow Police Department and said he wanted to talk about a crime he committed more than a decade ago.

Gibson told the detective that he met a woman in Bullhead City, Ariz. in 1997 and they went back to his trailer. She became loud and obnoxious, so he told her to leave. When she wouldn’t leave, he says he bludgeoned her to death with a Maglite flashlight and dumped her body by the Colorado River.

Gibson said he would have kept quiet about the incident, but he started getting text messages from Walmart that caused him to be paranoid.

He says the texts messages and voice mails from Walmart informed him that a prescription for Anita Townshed was ready. Gibson also later received an envelope with a Walmart advertisement in it but no return name or address.

Gibson, a former cocaine and methamphetamine addict, decided that Townshed must have been the woman he killed and he felt someone might have put “a contract on his head.”

So, he drove to Arizona to confess his secret.

Gibson says he didn’t know the name of the 38-year-old woman he’d killed in Bullhead City in 1997. Detectives said the story checked out, but the woman murdered wasn’t Anita Townshed.

It was a woman named Barbara Brown Agnew.

Detectives say that without Gibson’s confession, police would never have had a case against him.

Gibson wanted to plead guilty to manslaughter and begin his 10-year sentence without delay.

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.
