Mentally Ill Woman Confesses On Camera To Trying To Stab Her Mother To Death


STABBER2 A woman who lives at Sunchase Apartments and is close friends with the 61-year-old woman who was stabbed a few doors down early Tuesday morning didn’t want to be identified, but said the woman’s daughter – Katie Nichols – is to blame.

“She’s not emotionally stable and does the best she can, but needs quite a bit of help,” she said.

The woman said after the stabbing, Nichols took off with her young daughter.

“I almost kind of hope that she does come back through here so we can get the authorities to get her,” she said.

Not five minutes later, it happened – Nichols walked up to our camera.

“The satanic cult in this city has been casting satanic spells on me for three, four days. I’m exhausted. I came home and found out my mom was the ringleader and was trying to kill my daughter,” said Katie Nichols.

Nichols said she had to act because her mom was putting curses on them.

“I had to kill her -she was going to kill both of us. She was so powerful, I had no idea – I had no idea that my mother was that powerful,” said Nichols.

Deputies said Nichols’ mother was stabbed in the neck, chest and stomach – and was rushed to the hospital for surgery.

“When I left, she was still breathing. I stabbed her three times and she should have died. She was still breathing. I don’t know what happened to her afterwards or where they took her, but she was the antichrist – she did not die,” said Nichols.

Nichols said afterwards, she and her daughter hid out:

“We went in my car, we ended up in a little rural area and just waited for the sign that it was safe to come back,” said Nichols.

Neighbors said they’re glad Nichols is in custody and they’re hopeful she’ll get the help she needs – but Nichols is convinced she did everyone a favor.

“She had symbolic representations of my death, my daughter’s death, every nuclear explosion that was supposed to happen – that’s not going to now. Because all of the satanic cult has been rounded up and killed now,” said Nichols.

Katie Nichols is in the Knox County Jail charged with attempted first degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping.

If the shoe fits, masturbate into it

The director of public safety for Concordia University in River Forest was arrested last week after allegedly masturbating inside the office of a school employee.
Tim Margis, 38, of 13910 S. King Road, Homer Glen, is accused ejaculating into a shoe belonging to a female Concordia employee on the night of Feb. 10, said River Forest Deputy Police Chief Jim O’Shea.

According to police, the employee reported seeing Margis exit her office around 9:30 p.m. while buttoning up his pants and fastening his belt. When the woman confronted Margis about what he was doing in her office, he allegedly stated that he was checking the room because the door had been left open.

Police said that after Margis left, the employee discovered a “clear liquid” inside one of her shoes, which had been left in the office.

W1siZiIsImltYWdlcy9tYXJnaXNfaS1SRk8tMDIyNzIwMTQuanBnIl0sWyJwIiwiY29udmVydCIsIi1yZXNpemUgNzcweDQwMCAtc3RyaXAgK3JlcGFnZSJdXQDetectives interviewed Margis on Feb. 12 at his home and he later admitted to entering the office and committing a lewd act there, police said.

Margis was charged with public indecency and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanor charges.

O’Shea said there was no relationship between Margis and the victim. Police have also received no other allegations made against Margis, he added.

Police did not indicate if the employee is a professor at the university or a staff member.

Eric Matanyi, spokesman for Concordia University Chicago, said the school learned of Margis’ arrest as soon as it was reported by police on Feb. 12.

“At that point the employee was suspended and banned immediately from campus,” Matanyi said. “We cooperated fully with the investigation and he was terminated on Feb. 13 for misconduct, less than 24 hours later.”

It was not immediately known how long Margis had worked for the university.

Pregnant woman forced into prostitution by boyfriend


20140220_prostituition_metroahad_1Nanyang Siang Pau reported that a 24-year-old woman from Alor Setar, Kedah, who was in the last few months of her pregnancy, had been forced into prostitution by her boyfriend.

It was reported that despite her condition, she was one of the most sought after sex workers at a makeshift “sex worker camp” at the Lorong Satu red-light area in Alor Setar.

The woman was among five picked up by the Kedah Welfare Department and Alor Setar City Council in a raid on Tuesday morning.

Enforcement personnel also picked up five men during the operation.

The woman told enforcement officers that her boyfriend would beat her up if she refused to sleep with other men.

She was later sent to a welfare home in Perak.

“Hello, 911? Can you help me? He took my beer and he bought my beer for me”


images If they didn’t waste valuable resources, take the time of public servants and distract those hired to protect and serve the rest of us, some of the non-emergency calls made to 911 dispatchers in Tampa would be downright funny.


Tampa police say at least half of the 911 calls the department receives have nothing to do with life and death emergencies.


Legitimate calls include reports of serious events like car wrecks, houses on fire or crimes in progress. What doesn’t constitute an emergency are questions about inheritance taxes, daylight savings time and a complaint that your roommate just grabbed a beer out of your hand.


Dispatchers once got a call from a guy at the airport who said his electronic entry key wouldn’t work on his car. He wanted to know what he should do.


On the department’s Facebook page, police have begun posting such 911 calls, though the names have been deleted to protect the innocent and blissfully ignorant. The calls can bring up a chuckle, but there is a serious undercurrent here.


Among the more flagrant misuses of the 911 emergency line was a clearly inebriated woman who called around 3 a.m. in March 2009, complaining initially of a drug deal, then a domestic disturbance. Then the real reason emerged.


The conversation spanned three different calls, all within a half-hour period. Here’s the edited version:


“What’s going on?” the dispatcher asks.


“There was an argument,” the woman slurs. “I don’t want to go to jail and he doesn’t want to go to jail.”


“You are just arguing?”




“What are you arguing about?” the very patient dispatcher asks.




“Beer? Are there any weapons there?”



“He just took my beer out of my hand.”


The woman asks for help.


“Please,” she says, “he took my beer and he bought my beer for me.”


The woman made two calls after that, each getting more agitated, to the point where she was screaming for someone to come arrest her.


“Come … lock me up. I’ll go no problem.”


Some calls aren’t as dramatic, but still of the non-emergency type.


An example of a call made on the first Saturday in November in an abridged version:


“Tampa 911, what is your emergency,” the dispatcher asks.


“There’s no emergency,” the caller says. “I’d like to ask you a question. Do you turn the clock an hour ahead or back?” “It’s an hour back.”


“Thank you.”


All hilarity aside, police say such calls take up scare resources, and that’s why the department is drawing attention to the issue.


“It’s easy to laugh,” said police spokeswoman Andrea Davis, “But it is a serious matter and if people are driving through or live in the city, we’re asking them to please program the non-emergency phone number into their phones. The number is (813) 231-6130.”


While a lot of calls are non-emergency, she said, they still may be appropriate for 911.


“Like kittens in the sewer technically is not an emergency,” she said, though some would disagree. Reporting a crime may not be an emergency either, like break-ins of cars or homes, or vandalism of property, but they are considered appropriate for the emergency line.


If it isn’t a pressing matter, people should call the non-emergency line, she said.


“We don’t want to discourage people from calling 911,” she said. “If you have an emergency or something that requires police assistance, call 911. If you’re in doubt, call 911. We don’t want to discourage that.


“You don’t need to call 911 to ask when to set clocks back or about an inheritance tax or if you were served cold food at a restaurant. Not only are they not emergencies, they are not police matters.”


When people who live in the city call 911 on their house phones, the calls go first to Tampa police dispatchers. Ditto for cell phone users calling from within the city limits. Davis said dispatchers say half of their calls, at least, are non-emergencies.


“Some say 65 percent, 70 percent,” she said.


Occasionally people are charged with misusing the 911 system, but they usually are flagrantly calling over and over for no good reason. The woman who called about her roommate snatching the beer our of her hand called three times, and at the end, in a profanity-laced scream, ordered police to come arrest her. Police obliged, Davis said.


“She was not charged the first time, she was not charged the second time,” Davis said. “She was charged the third time she called. It was a clear misuse of 911. If someone calls 911 innocently and they should be calling the non-emergency number, they will not be charged.”


Like the recent 911 call made by a man from the long-term parking lot of Tampa International Airport who told the dispatcher his electronic key wouldn’t unlock his car door.


He had to manually open the door with an old-fashioned key.


“Is it something I need to worry about?” he asked a nonplussed dispatcher. “The door didn’t open up. I opened it with a key and the alarm did not go off.


“You haven’t tried to start it?” the dispatcher asks.


“No, I’m not sure what’s going on. It might be the battery is dead? Should I try to turn on the battery?”


“That’s completely up to you, sir.”


The man started the car and the dispatcher suggested he have a mechanic look under the hood.


A few weeks ago, a woman called Tampa 911 with an unusual request. Here’s the shortened transcript:


“I’d like to ask you a question,” she begins. “Do you have to pay an inheritance tax if you inherit money? Is there an inheritance tax in Tampa?”


“Ma’am,” the dispatcher says, “this is for life and death emergencies only.”


“Where can I find that information?” “The courthouse, or tax collector,” the dispatcher says. “I don’t know where else to send you.”


“My niece says you don’t have to pay an inheritance tax in Tampa.”


“You may not, but this is the police department.”

Newlyweds Elytte And Miranda Barbour Just Wanted To Murder Someone Together


A newlywed couple in Pennsylvania killed a man whom the wife had lured to a rendezvous though an online dating advertisement, strangling him and stabbing him repeatedly, police said on Friday.

imagesZ8R3BQCXThe pair, named as Elytte and Miranda Barbour, “just wanted to murder someone together,” Sunbury Police Corporal Brad Hare told Reuters.

Elytte Barbour, 22, hid under a blanket in the back of their car as his 18-year-old wife Miranda drove to pick up a man she met through Craigslist at a mall north of Harrisburg on November 11, the Sunbury Police Department said in a report.

On Miranda’s signal, Elytte strangled the man, 42-year-old Troy LaFerrara, with a cord while she stabbed him about 20 times, it said.

They dumped his body in an alley in Sunbury, where police found him the next day.

“It was pretty twisted,” Hare said.

Miranda told police she connected with LaFerrara through Craigslist, which she used to meet other men who would pay her for escort-style “companionship,” he said

Elytte was arrested on Friday and faces multiple criminal homicide and assault charges. Miranda was arrested on Tuesday and faces similar charges, according to local media reports. They were being held without bail.

After dumping the body, Elytte and Miranda bought bleach wipes, towels, and cleaning liquid to remove the blood from inside the vehicle, police said.

After cleaning it, they went out to eat

Frances Slyman’s Diet Is Making Her Cranky


1NpjWU3Frances L. Slyman, 44, was charged with misdemeanor assault after police were called to the Giant Eagle at 3440 Center Road about 9 p.m.

According to a police report, Slyman ordered two steak filets. She asked that they be cut smaller than usual, explaining that she was on a diet.

When the employee handed over the steaks, witnesses told police that Slyman removed the cellophane from the steaks and threw them at the employee, shouting that the employee had called her “fat.” One of the steaks struck the employee in the eye and the other on her shoulder.

Slyman told police that her husband said he overheard the employee make a derogatory comment about his weight.

The employee denied commenting on the man’s weight but said that as she was filling the order, she chatted with another employee about how “everyone is on a diet these days.”

A witness who was waiting for an order at the deli counter told police she didn’t hear the employee say anything to provoke the attack.

Man pulled down his trousers and shouted anti-religious language before damaging crucifix


??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????A man has been appeared in court accused of dropping his trousers and causing £500 worth of damage after placing £20 on a donation box in Exeter Cathedral.

Nicholas Courtney, 34, of Smythen Street, entered the building by the front gate at around 1.10pm on Saturday and shouted ‘anti-religious’ language.

The court heard he then proceeded to run down the aisle before jumping on the high altar – knocking over two brass candles and damaging the main crucifix.

Courtney, of Smythen Street, Exeter, admitted causing criminal damage. He did not enter a plea to assault after a 70-year-old woman was allegedly punched.

He was remanded in custody to be sentenced on 20 March at Exeter Crown Court.

Prosecutor Karen Ball said Courtney went up to the high altar and climbed on top of it, sending candlesticks crashing to the ground and damaging a crucifix as he leapt down to the ground.

In a police interview Mr Courtney said he felt “something bad was about to happen” and he “lost it”.

Miss Katherine Todd, defending, said: “He is absolutely horrified by what he has done.”

Daycare Teacher Meredith Howard Allegedly Sexually Abused 19 Month Old


untitledA daycare teacher is charged with two counts of child abuse from two separate incidents.

Meredith Allison Howard is accused of sexually abusing a 19-month-old girl at the John Knox Child Development Center last week.  She is also charged with child abuse from an incident in 2008.  According to court documents, she used unreasonable force on an 8 month old baby, breaking his femur bone at Kirk of the Hills Mother’s Day Out.

Howard was arrested Tuesday.  Her bond was set at $100,000.

She was placed on paid leave from John Knox last week.

John Knox is widely regarded as one of the best daycare centers in Tulsa. It’s affiliated with the John Knox Presbyterian Church. Parents normally have put their names on a waiting list to get a spot for their child at the center.

Since the incident, John Knox issued this letter to parents:

We would like to take this opportunity to provide parents of John Knox Child Development Center with some updated information and to let you know what additional measures we are (and will be) taking to insure the safety of your children.

1.We have doubled the staff in all rooms at all times. Some Classes will be combined when ratios are low to ensure that each room has the appropriate number of staff.
2.We are looking into a video monitoring system for each classroom and the hallways. This will enable all rooms to be monitored live as well as being digitally recorded.
3.We want to reassure you once again that all staff members have had a background check with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Human Services. References, that are provided on the application, are contacted. These actions were carried out fully with regard to the teacher under investigation. The background check we received came back clean and the references reported no prior history of abuse or allegations thereof.
We understand how frustrating it can be to receive vague and incomplete information. However, we do not want to do or say anything that would interfere with this ongoing investigation.  It is our hope that, as more information becomes available, the investigating agencies will communicate with us. A parents meeting has been called for Thursday, November 11 at 6p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. We have invited a representative from DHS to be present and we hope to have more overall information available at that time, as it becomes available through DHS and the Tulsa Police Department.

Teens Accused Of Torturing Classmate, Carving Swastika In His Forehead


Four Portland teens are facing kidnapping and assault charges after police said they tortured one of their classmates.

The alleged victim is a 16-year-old boy who attends David Douglas High School, according to police.

Investigators said it happened during the snowstorm on Southeast 111th Avenue.

Jenna-Montgomery-125x188Jenna Montgomery, 15, Jess Taylor, 17, and Blue Kalbach lured the boy into a shed behind a house, according to police, and attacked him with a crowbar while also shooting him with a BB gun at close range in the chest, hand and groin.

They also carved a swastika into his forehead with a box cutter, police said.

“There’s no understanding what they did,” said the victim’s mom Kelli Murrain. “You roll it around in your head go, ‘Oh my god, you know, I could have lost my youngest son.’”

Those three suspects are facing Measure 11 charges and will be arraigned as adults next week. A fourth suspect is facing lesser charges.

Neighbors told Fox 12 they never heard anything that would make them think that kind of violence was happening in their neighborhood.

“I never heard any screams or shooting or anything like that,” said Anna Sanchez.

As far as a motive, police said the victim may have been a bully and the teens were retaliating against him.

“He’s been severely traumatized not just physically, but emotionally. It’s something he’s gonna live with forever, especially if the scar of swastika doesn’t go away. Every time he looks in the mirror he’s gonna have that memory,” said Murrain.

Murrain said even if that were true, nothing could ever justify what they’re accused of.

“I’m almost ready to lose faith in humanity at some point, you know, all of this evil is running around, and with our youth.  It’s bad enough that we have the bad guys out there, you know the adult bad guys, but these are young kids,” Murrain said.

LSD user breaks into neighbors apartment … he puts all their clothes in the bathtub and stuffs their credit cards inside a chocolate muffin’


article-2560769-1B8E7C6500000578-179_306x423A Seattle couple returned home on Sunday to find their apartment a mess, a frozen crab balancing on their bike, cat litter in the sink, a frozen pie in the oven and all their credit cards stuffed inside a chocolate muffin.

However rather than panic and fear they had been robbed, Derek Doerschel and his fianceé Danielle Green quickly came to suspect their neighbor, David Stolte – who they were aware suffered from mental health issues.

Indeed, as Doerschel phoned police he spotted a Stolte crouched in an alley adjacent to the apartment – who police promptly arrested.

Law enforcement said that they suspected he had taken LSD, causing him to think he was Jack Bauer from the television show 24.

Stolte, 30, was arrested and charged with residential burglary.

Doerschel said that initially when they came home to find food all over their apartment and their door ajar, his fianceé had become worried.

‘She was scared,’ he said to KiroTV. ‘She was getting a little emotional.’

When Doerschel first saw the man hiding in the doorway with his hands on his head he was worried when he threw up something at him.

‘At first I thought it was a shell casing to a gun or a bullet,’ Doerschel said.

It was the peephole to the apartment.

Court documents seen by Kiro TV reveal Stolte’s sad history of mental illness.

He has been arrested several times over the past three years for public nakedness, climbing onto the Seattle Center without any clothes on and lying down in the middle of the road to get run over.

‘It’s progressively getting worse,’ Stolte’s mother, Ria Quinton said.
