Police Looking For Killer Who Fatally Set Jessica Chambers On Fire


The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation and the Panola County Sheriff’s Office are seeking phone records and witnesses to find out who fatally lit a teenage girl on fire.

Jessica-ChambersA passerby called the sheriff’s office about the burning car along Herron Road, near Highway 51, Saturday night.

Responders took 19-year-old Jessica Chambers to the Regional Medical Center in Memphis, where she died.

Jessica’s father said his daughter tried to tell responders who killed her.

The sheriff’s office previously told WREG it’s possible Jessica had plans with two people that night, although Assistant District Attorney Jay Hale said there are no clear-cut suspects at this time.

He said her autopsy was underway Monday.

WREG met with Lisa Chambers, Jessica’s mother, Monday at a funeral home, after she finalized plans for her daughter’s burial.

Chambers said her daughter lived with her, and Jessica planned to go get her car cleaned Saturday evening. She spoke with her daughter on the phone around 6:48 p.m., and Jessica said she was going to get a bite to eat.

“[She] said ‘Bye, I love you, Mama. See you in a little while.’ Next time I seen her, she was in the Med,” Chambers said.

Chambers wants justice for her daughter, who she said was acting normally Saturday. She said her daughter had a job at a department store, cheered in high school, and didn’t currently have a boyfriend.

“God’s punishment is going to be far more worse than anything that we can do,” Chambers said about her daughter’s killer.

Hale said it is possible Jessica’s murderer could face life in prison without parole, or even the death penalty.

Jessica’s family confirmed her visitation will be at Wells Funeral Home from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday. Her funeral is at the same location at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Man videotaped himself having sex with stepdaughter’s corpse


The man accused of killing his stepdaughter, Jessica Padgett, videotaped himself having sex with her corpse, Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli said Friday.

He said the video confirmed what Gregory R. Graf told investigators on the day he was charged with homicide last month: that he wanted to have sex with Padgett, and that he did so after she was dead.

Morganelli said he had concluded Graf killed Padgett in order to have sex with her body.

He said he had authorized the filing of an abuse-of-corpse charge against Graf, 53. A misdemeanor, it means Morganelli won’t be able to seek the death penalty because the alleged sexual abuse occurred after Padgett was killed.


Morganelli declined to discuss what the video showed, other than to say Graf committed a variety of sexual acts against Padgett, 33, of Whitehall Township, who once described him as like a second father.

Graf is accused of shooting Padgett in the back of the head on Nov. 21 and hiding her body on his property while family and friends searched for her.

Padgett went missing that day after she left Duck Duck Goose Child Care in Northampton.

Morganelli also said Graf had a marijuana-growing operation that police discovered as they searched for Padgett.

Cannibal mum tries to EAT her own baby shortly after giving birth



Shocked medics have described the moment they found a mum apparently trying to EAT her baby days after he was born.

A nurse found the woman, named locally as 24-year-old Li Zhenghua, with her jaws clamped firmly around the infant’s arm.

She raised the alarm and tried to pull the baby free, but the mum refused to let go.

Doctors were forced to use an implement to prize her off the child before administering a sedative.

The shocking cannibalistic attack happened at a hospital in the city of Shenzhen in southern China’s Guangdong Province, where the woman had been discovered heavily pregnant and in labour on the street.

She had been taken into the hospital and had given birth, and then placed in a ward where attempts had been made to contact her family as she was left to nurse the child.

However on the woman’s third day in hospital, nurse Liu Tianlun had gone into the bedroom to find the young mother biting her son on the arm.

A hospital spokesman said: “It was really shocking, the arm was badly damaged and suffered not only heavy bruising but bleeding as a result of the bite.

“Fortunately, doctors managed to insert something to stop her closing her teeth and then levered her jaws apart.

“After that they gave her a sedative and took the baby to a secure location.”

Police said the woman had been identified as 24-year-old Li Zhenghua.

They said enquiries had found that, despite being pregnant, her mother-in-law had thrown her out on the street after Li started behaving oddly.

The family did not alert anybody that Li was pregnant and might be in need of help.

She had apparently survived on the streets for at the very least several weeks and possibly longer before she was spotted in labour and the alarm was raised.

An investigation is now going on to decide what prompted the woman’s actions and whether the child should be taken into the care of the authorities.

Man Attacks Pregnant Wife With McChicken Sandwich


A man in Des Moines, Iowa, is behind bars after he allegedly attacked his pregnant wife with a McChicken sandwich.

n-MARVIN-TRAMAINE-HILL-II-large300Marvin Tramaine Hill II, 21, was arrested Tuesday and charged with simple domestic assault for the alleged attack.

Police said Hill admitted to the attack, which happened when his wife woke him up around 1 p.m. with a McChicken in hand, the Des Moines Register reports.

Hill allegedly told police he threw the sandwich at his wife “because he doesn’t like them,” according to WHOTV.com.

At first, Hill threw the entire sandwich at his wife. Then he picked up some of the bun off the floor and threw that at her.

When the woman went to the bathroom to clean up, Hill allegedly followed her and recorded her with his cellphone, which he shared with police.

Police said the video showed the woman knocking the phone out of the suspect’s hands.

Officers said Hill’s wife had mayonnaise on her shirt and face when they arrived,WQAD.com reports.

Hill is being held without bond at the Polk County Jail.

Teacher Brent Taylor Told Student To Unclog Toilet With Bare Hands


A Washington state teacher acknowledged ordering an 8-year-old student to unclog a toilet with his bare hands, and the boy’s parents say the educator deserves more than a reprimand.

n-BRENT-TAYLOR-largeArtie and Lisa Adams told KEPR-TV that they learned of the Nov. 6 incident at Scootney Springs Elementary School in the small, central Washington city of Othello when they asked their son about his day at school.

The third-grader said he reported the clog and teacher Brent Taylor told him to clear it with his bare hands.

The parents complained. The principal reprimanded Taylor, warned him that any further such incidents would lead to his termination, and ordered the 23-year teaching veteran to review a hygiene course.

Othello Superintendent George Juarez told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the punishment was made in consultation with the school district’s lawyer and was appropriate considering the teacher’s record and contract protections.

While the pupil reached into the toilet and pulled out a couple strands of paper, the teacher himself ultimately reached in barehanded and pulled out the clog, which consisted “only of paper,” Juarez said.

Juarez called the teacher’s actions “very poor professional judgment” and said the district regrets what happened.

“The child had flushed the toilet several times, and it didn’t go down,” Juarez said. “I am sure that the best judgment would have been to call our custodian to handle the matter.”

A message left for Taylor at the school was not immediately returned.

The district granted a request from the boy’s family to transfer him to another school.

Christian Ferdinand Guilty Of Killing & Burning 14yo Shaniesha Forbes She Told Him She Was Pregnant


A subhuman Brooklynite was convicted Monday of killing a 14-year-old girl, burning her body and dumping her in a creek after she told him she was pregnant with his baby.

15hd2edIt took jurors only an hour to find Christian Ferdinand, 22, guilty of the 2013 murder of Shaniesha Forbes — a teenager he hooked up with after they met on Facebook.

“It didn’t deserve to live,” the remorseless killer callously told a friend, according to trial testimony.

“I hope he won’t see the light of day again,” the victim’s mother, Sandra Price, said after the verdict was announced in Brooklyn Supreme Court. “I will never see my baby again.”

Shaniesha Forbes’ burned body was found on Gerrison Beach in Brooklyn in 2013. She was only 14, and had been killed by her older boyfriend, Christian Ferdinand, when she told him she was pregnant with his child.

Tragically, her daughter — who had told Ferdinand she was carrying his child and wouldn’t get an abortion — was found not to be pregnant. But that was during her autopsy, after he strangled her with a pillow at his cousin’s apartment.

“He intentionally smothered a 14-year-old girl to death and burned her body to get rid of the evidence,” prosecutor Robert Walsh told the jury. “He had a problem that needed solving, he didn’t want to pay child support, and Shaniesha got in the way.”

Ferdinand was nabbed in Maine in May, about four months after Shaniesha’s body was discovered in Gerritsen Beach. While he first tried to deny any involvement, detectives confronted him with phone records and other damning evidence and he ultimately ‘fessed up.

“His affliction is that he thinks everyone is stupid or too lazy to do their homework,” the prosecutor said, adding the defendant only confessed to show that “killing a 14-year-old is out of character for him.”

DNA from the scene of the crime — where the teenager emptied her bladder as she got choked — was also used as evidence.

Ferdinand lowered his head on the defense table and appeared to tear up when the jury returned the guilty verdict. He’s facing 25 years to life in prison when sentenced next month.

“He deserves much worse,” said the victim’s sister Shaquana Forbes, 22.

Brooklyn District Attorney Kenneth Thompson said his office will “seek the maximum at sentencing to ensure that we get justice for the victim.”

Shaniesha was a freshman at the Academy for Young Writers when she was reported missing from her Flatlands home in early January 2013. Relatives have said that they knew she was dating, but not someone six years her senior.

At closing arguments, Walsh told jurors that “this is one of the easiest cases” and the panel evidently agreed with its swift deliberations.

“It was open and shut,” an older female juror said as she left the courthouse.

“Young girls should be careful who they hook up with on the Internet,” the juror added. “But he should not have done what he did.”
