Couple Jailed For Keeping Two Girls In Nasty Trailer For Years While They Played World Of Warcraft

0

128951Lester Huffmire and his wife, Petra Huffmire, have been accused of keeping two young female relatives malnourished and locked inside a nasty trailer for years while they played World of Warcraft all day.

It is being alleged that between May 21, 2010, and May 20, 2013, the couple lived in a mobile home at the Satellite Mobile Homes Estate and prevented the two girls, ages 5 and 10, from leaving the trailer for any reason, including attending school.

Police got involved after multiple calls from concerned neighbors. Grace McKee said she called officials more than once to report something weird was going on with her neighbors, the last time was 12 days ago. “I wish I had forced the issue years ago. They sorta said, ‘If you don’t see much, why should we come out?’ That sort of thing,” she said. “I wish I would have really, really insisted.”

Witness McKayla Smith said she briefly saw one of the girls as she stared at her through a window. “She had a really crazed look on her face. She had huge eyes. She looked sick. She stared at me for a moment and the curtain closed and somebody said, ‘Get away from that window,’” she said.

After another neighbor called on May 20th, a police officer arrived at the couple’s trailer to make a welfare check. What he found inside was a trailer unfit to live in. The trailer was littered with stacks of trash, debris, mold, and feces. There were a pile of used condoms found under a stuffed teddy bear, the kitchen appliances were covered in mold and cobwebs, and the toilets did not work.

As for the two girls, they echoed the surroundings they were living in.  Dirt was crusted on their feet, their hair was matted and their teeth were damaged beyond repair. “They looked small. Very pale, malnourished, not clean,” said OC Deputy District Attorney Lori Smith.

Lester Huffmire and Petra Huffmire, both 41 and reportedly unemployed, were arrested and charged with two felony counts of child abuse, two misdemeanor counts of false imprisonment and a sentencing enhancement for great bodily injury. Both are being held on $100,000 bail and, if convicted, could each face up to seven years in prison.

Parents killed, cooked and packed into lunchboxes

A man killed, salted, and cooked his parents before dismembering them and stuffing their remains into lunchboxes.

ChinaFlag_largeThe horrendous crime occurred in China where a court heard the man had told friends he believed he was a psychopath.

Henry Chau Hoi-leung, aged 30, and his friend Tse Chun-kei, aged 36, are accused of killing Chau Wing-ki, 65, and his wife Siu Yuet-yee, 62, before dismembering, salting, and cooking them. Their heads and organs were discovered in two refrigerators on March 15 last year.

The other remains were found in a rubbish bin, cooked and packed into lunchboxes with rice to make it look like discarded food, in an attempt to hide the crime after the pair ran out of space in the fridges.

Chau claims to have killed his parents with the help of Tse in the middle of an emotional breakdown, but prosecutors allege that the murder was carefully planned.

Prosecutor Michael Arthur told the court that Henry Chau and Tse had planned the murders for more than three months, buying knives, refrigerators, microwave ovens, and a rice cooker.

The prosecutor said Chau admitted to friends that he had killed his parents and told them he was a psychopath in messages sent to a WhatsApp chat group while he was giving a statement at police headquarters in Wan Chai on March 14.

“I am a psychopath,” Henry Chau wrote in a message. “I cannot empathise with a normal person’s pain because of the experience of my childhood and adolescence.

“My process of emotion is different from a normal person.”

Chau told police after his arrest that he and Tse killed his parents on March 1 last year because “they felt ready”, the court heard. Both men have denied two counts of murder in court.

Chau initially told police his parents were missing after going to the mainland “to have fun”.

Police searched a flat at 38 Fuk Chak St in Tai Kok Tsui and found the dismembered bodies, as well as notes and receipts that suggested the pair had pre-planned the killings.

Prosecutor Arthur said: “Their crime was greatly premeditated. Their planning was extensive. Their preparation gathered pace in January and February. And on March 1 last year, they carried out the killings as they had planned.”

After his arrest, Chau told police he and Tse killed his parents, but that it was only Tse who cut up the bodies, treating it as though he was “chopping barbecued pork”, before packing the remains in rice boxes along with some rice and throwing out in the rubbish.

He said he killed his parents as they had no emotional connection.

Couple Accused Of Keeping 7-Year-Old Locked In Outdoor Cage For Weeks

0

A preliminary hearing is set for Thursday in Circuit Court for a man charged with child abuse and felonious restraint after he — and an Albany County woman — allegedly kept a 7-year-old child in an outdoor cage.

Jena-HarmanJena Harman, the child’s mother, and Alexander Smith are charged with one count each of child abuse and three counts each of felonious restraint, according to District Court felony information documents.

If guilty of all four counts, Harman and Smith each face up to 20 years imprisonment.

They were arrested July 24 after Albany County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to a residence on Fox Creek Road and allegedly found the child in a cage.

Harman’s case was bound over to District Court. Her arraignment hasn’t been scheduled yet.

The Public Defender’s Office is representing Harman.

Tom Fleener, attorney with Fleener and Vang, is representing Smith, and Josh Merseal, Deputy County and Prosecuting Attorney, is prosecuting.

Smith’s hearing, scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Thursday in Circuit Court, will determine whether his case is bound over to District Court.

Before the arrests, the Sheriff’s Office began receiving complaints of child abuse and requests for welfare checks dating back to August.

Deputies responded to the property after receiving a tip July 23 that the child was being kept in a cage there.

After arriving, deputies discovered the cage was about six feet square, five feet tall and constructed of cattle paneling and wooden snow fence. Plywood covered half of the top opening. Inside the cage, deputies discovered a cot, clothing, books, a toothbrush, toothpaste and a five-gallon bucket, according to court documents.

A metal chain and “dog-leash-style latch” were allegedly used to keep the child locked in the cage.

The child told deputies he/she had been in the cage on and off for three weeks, using the restroom from the cage, taking meals in the cage and sleeping overnight in the cage — even during rainstorms.

Harman allegedly referred to the cage as the child’s playpen and kept the child in the cage because he/she was misbehaving, according to District Court documents.

Smith told deputies he disliked the child but kept the child in the cage to ensure his/her safety, according to the affidavit.

Both Harman and Smith remain incarcerated at the Albany County Detention Center on $100,000 cash bonds.

A naked, intoxicated man masturbating in public view along the Willamette River required an emergency rescue on Saturday when he fell into the water.

15548266-smallOregon City Police said officers spotted the man on a cliff bank near the Oregon City/West Linn Arch bridge around 2:17 p.m. Officers tried to talk with the man, who was about 75 feet below them, but he was apparently under the influence of drugs, police said.

Officers soon requested help from the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office Marine Unit. When sheriff’s deputies and police in a boat made contact with the man, he was drifting in and out of consciousness and soon fell into the river.

Officers pulled the man onto the boat and took him to a hospital for medical evaluation, police said. The man was identified as 31-year-old Ernest Michael Kirk, who police said is a transient.

On Monday, Oregon City Police spotted Kirk near Clackamette Park and arrested him. Kirk was booked into Clackamas County Jail on charges of felony public indecency, harassment and a parole violation.

Pennsylvania mother smells foul odor, finds son died 4 days earlier

A mother, alerted by a foul odor, found out her son died four days earlier in their Pennsylvania home, and on Monday an autopsy was under way and the boy’s father remained jailed in the case.

childs-body-foundThe 8-year-old boy, Jarrod Tutko, Jr., was among five children in the family who suffer from medical or developmental problems, according to the Harrisburg Patriot-News website.

He was being cared for by his father in an upper bedroom of the Harrisburg home while his mother, Kimberly Tutko, tended to his 10-year-old sister, who is comatose, on another floor, according to the Patriot-News website.

The mother had not seen the boy, who was prone to smear feces on himself, in four years out of fear she would carry an infection back to his sister, the news site reported.

Dauphin County Assistant District Attorney Fran Chardo declined to confirm the details of the news report.

The boy’s mother called police on Friday night after she asked her husband about a stench coming from an upper floor of their rented half of a two-family home.

He told her their son was dead, and then brought the decomposing body from the third-floor bedroom, police said.

An autopsy on the boy’s body was being conducted on Monday, Chardo said.

The father, Jarrod Nicholas Tutko, 38, was being held on $500,000 bail on charges of child endangerment, concealing the death of a child and abuse of a corpse.

The couple’s other five children were placed in the custody of Dauphin County child welfare authorities.

Things Not To Say (Or Admit) To A Law Enforcement Agent (#9)

In an apparent attempt to explain why a woman twice spotted him pleasuring himself in his apartment window, an Iowa man told cops that the indecent exposure was an accident, adding that he was “on an adult website at the time of the second incident.”

heclaimedtobe

dustinhillsDespite that explanation, Dustin Hills, 35, was arrested last night and booked into the Johnson County jail, where he remains locked up on a serious misdemeanor charge.

A female victim told cops that, on two separate occasions last month, she was “outside in a parking lot” when she “noticed a man displaying his penis and pleasuring himself while standing in a nearby apartment window.” The man hid when she yelled at him, the woman reported.

When questioned by investigators, Hills, seen in the adjacent mug shot, “admitted to accidentally displaying his erect penis to others outside” his Iowa City home, according to a criminal complaint. Hills added that he was “on an adult website” when the woman spotted him the second time.

How the obesity epidemic is ruining America’s sex life

0

From 1980-2010, the number of obese American children aged 6-11 more than doubled, from 7% to 18%.

2-photosfatWhile childhood obesity can presage a host of problems, greatly increasing the risk of cancer, heart disease and diabetes, less discussed is the effect it will eventually have on a person’s sex life.

In the new book “XL Love” (Rodale), health-policy journalist Sarah Varney informs us that these negative effects begin surprisingly early for many, such as how overweight girls begin puberty younger than their healthy-weight counterparts.

“Some 15% of American girls now begin puberty by first or second grade,” Varney writes. “Over the last quarter-century, the age at which American girls begin menstruating has decreased by 2.5 months.”

Carlton Gorton, a doctor in Belzoni, Miss., an area with higher-than-average rates of obesity, told Varney that “he has discovered girls as young as 5 and 6 years old who are developing pubic hair. These alarming signs of puberty are usually related to his patients’ ample body fat.”

Some of these young patients, whom the doctor describes as “off the growth chart,” even come to him for monthly hormone shots that “hold them off from going through puberty.”

Early puberty, meanwhile, leads to a host of dangerous issues.

“Among girls who go though early puberty,” Varney writes, “there is an increased incidence of depression; alcohol, tobacco and substance abuse; riskier sexual adventures; teen pregnancy; and even suicide attempts.”

Girls who get their periods earlier are “more likely to be sexually active sooner than girls the same age and are more likely to become pregnant and contract sexually transmitted diseases.”

Varney also references a study that “found that women with early periods had an elevated risk for unwanted sexual touching and an even greater risk for forced sexual activity.”

In the teen years, excess weight can also be an obstacle for a girl’s romantic development.

One 2005 study found that “a teenage girl’s odds for a romantic relationship…dropped 6 to 7 percent for every 1-point increase in her body mass index.”

With dating becoming that much more challenging, overweight girls often wind up in one of two categories, neither positive: Some become late bloomers, leaving them behind in knowing how to forge real relationships as they approach adulthood; or, seeking approval, they have sex earlier, leading to even lower self-esteem and continually high risks of pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.

A TEENAGE GIRL’S ODDS FOR A ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIP…DROPPED 6 TO 7 PERCENT FOR EVERY 1-POINT INCREASE IN HER BODY MASS INDEX.

 – Study From 2005

Margaret Villers, an assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, examined more than 20,000 responses in a study of teenage girls.

Villers and her team found that “when obese girls did have sex,” they were “three times as likely as healthy-weight girls to have had sex by the age of 13; 30% more likely to have sex with more than three boys by the end of high school; [and] less likely to use condoms.”

Varney writes that based on feedback from therapists, “Overweight teenage girls can be reluctant to refuse any advances out of fear that they’ll have few chances in the future for romantic and sexual attention.”

Furthermore, a 2011 study found that “extremely obese high-school girls” were “less likely to have sexual intercourse overall…But when they did have a sexual encounter, 42% reported using drugs or alcohol — four times the rate of healthy-weight girls.”

This is troubling for a host of reasons, not the least of which is that “since girls who were drunk or high often ‘did more’ sexually than they originally intended, [they] were more likely to have sex without birth control.”

Jennie Noll, a professor at Penn State who participated in that study, “worries that heavy girls who become sexually active aren’t developing mature sexual identity that will serve them well on their journey to adulthood; they’re just stuck in a cycle. [Some guy is] going to call her beautiful, [and then she thinks], ‘It felt good when that kid came on to me at the party. I slept with him.’ But it doesn’t do anything to move [her] on in a developmental fashion.”

“The picture that is emerging of heavy teen girls and sex,” Varney writes, “is one of extremes: girls who enter adulthood romantically and sexually inexperienced, and those who begin sex very early, by the age of 13, and pursue sexual encounters more recklessly.”

“I don’t think either of those cases,” Noll says in the book, “is going to have healthy relationships unless they’ve found Prince Charming.”

In addition to the psychological and maturation problems these factors set in place, there is also, according to Varney, the fact that 92% of girls who are obese as teens will remain so as adults, leading to problems such as feelings of sexual inadequacy and difficulty reaching orgasm due to decreased blood flow to the clitoris.

FOR EVERY 50 POUNDS OVERWEIGHT YOU ARE, YOU LOSE AN INCH OF PENIS.

 – Dr. Edward Karpman

A 2006 study even found that “one out of three obese women said that because of her weight, she ‘usually or always did not enjoy sexual activity, had little sexual desire, experienced difficulty with sexual performance and avoided sexual encounters.’”

The news is little better for heavy men. While overweight boys might not have the depth of challenges overweight girls do, once into adulthood — where 80% of those boys will remain overweight — the extra weight creates similar feelings of inadequacy, along with unique and troubling problems of their own.

“For every 50 pounds overweight you are, you lose an inch of penis,” Dr. Edward Karpman, a California urologist, says in the book.

“A man’s penis is actually fixed to his abdominal wall, holding it in place,” writes Varney, based on Karpman’s explanation. “The more a man’s fattening belly grows outward, ‘the more it eats their penis,’ leaving them with, according to the doctor, ‘this little nubbin of a penis.’”

Extremely obese men face an extreme version of that, called “buried penis syndrome.”

As Varney explains, “abdominal fat and skin drape out and over a man’s pubic area, causing a host of problems.”

There are plenty of reasons for America to lose weight. “XL Love,” with its portrait of sexual dysfunction and loss of intimacy, shows us one of the saddest.

YUMMY: A McDonald’s Cheeseburger In Hydrochloric Acid

0

This is a video of a McDonald’s cheeseburger (no word on with or without onions) being dipped in hydrochloric acid. Hydrochloric acid is formed in the stomach and makes up about 0.5% of food-dissolving gastric acid. The other 99.5%? Tiny warriors with swords and axes chopping the food into smaller and smaller pieces. Plus, sometimes, a puke wizard.

“As you’re watching me, churning away in your stomach is acid which is one of the first stages in which food is broken down into usable components to give you energy or to make you fat,” our favorite Einstein-look-a-like Martyn Poliakoff, a chemist at the university, says in the video.

Salvador Martinez Killed Girlfriend’s Puppy, Marinated Corpse In Italian Dressing

Salvador-MartinezA New Mexico man is under arrest for gruesomely killing a dog with plans to eat it.

“Nobody knows what to think,” said Mandy Malone, the man’s ex-girlfriend. “Nobody has ever heard of this before.”

Malone said she’s disgusted by what her ex-boyfriend is accused of doing.

“He’d said it before but jokingly, just out of the blue, ‘I’m going to barbeque one of your dogs,’” she said.

This time it was no joke. Police said Salvador Martinez stabbed one of Malone’s dogs in the heart. Investigators said he skinned the puppy and cut up its meat. Malone found the remains of her beloved Onyx at her Edgewood home in the freezer.

“He had her marinating in Italian dressing in the fridge,” she said.

It’s legal in New Mexico to eat dog, but police said the way Martinez killed Onyx — by stabbing her repeatedly with a screwdriver — is a crime.

“What could possibly go through someone’s mind to do something that sick?” asked Malone.

Martinez is facing the charge extreme cruelty to animals.
