Nursing home resident ‘beat his two roommates to death with his wheelchair’

0

untitledPolice say a resident of a Houston nursing home will face capital murder charges for using the armrest of his wheelchair to beat two of his roommates to death.

77-year-old Antonio Acosta was beaten to death when his roommate lost control and started assaulting him with a wheelchair

Guillermo Correa, 56, has been charged with capital murder.

Police aren’t saying what provoked the attack Tuesday night at the Lexington Place Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

But Irma Chavez, the daughter of one of the victims, 77-year-old Antonio Acosta, said her father had long complained about the man scaring him — as recently as earlier Tuesday.

She said the man would cut himself, often talked to himself and would argue with other people in the facility.

According to Chavez, when she reported those complaints to nursing home management, she was told she could move her father to a different facility.

‘My father told us yesterday, ‘Who can we talk to to take this man out of the room? He is very violent,’ she said, standing in the parking lot of the nursing home.

The second victim has been identified as Primitivo Lopez, 51.

Click2Houston reports the homicide detectives were called to the facility at approximately 12 a.m. Wednesday.

Paramedics were already there for an unrelated medical call.

‘The paramedics went inside and found two males who were badly injured,’ Sergeant Ben Williams said. ‘One, in fact, had stopped breathing and was unable to be revived. The other was able to be loaded up and taken next door to Memorial Hermann Northwest, where he was [...] pronounced dead as well.

‘A third male in the room was uninjured, and apparently he was asleep when this happened,” he added. ‘We’re talking to the fourth roommate involved in this and hoping that he can shed some light on what happened.’

Chavez said Acosta had lived in the facility for two years and was recovering from two strokes.

A guitar player who performed around Houston, Acosta was starting to use a walker and was looking forward to the day he could leave, she said.

‘The way he went is what’s killing me,’ she said, crying.

An unidentified facility administrator released the following statement:

‘Our first priority is always our residents, their families and our staff. Last night we unexpectedly lost two of our residents. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families. We are cooperating with law enforcement as they conduct their investigation and cannot comment further at this time.’

FYI; Molesting children is still illegal even if you’re a magical warlock

Police say a Bluefield man claiming to be a “warlock” used a promise of magical spells to lure children into committing sexual acts with him.

g0002580000000000001951a9a81c3f67d769a76701b72f53f5097c0d00James “Jim” Irvin, 57, of Bluefield, was arraigned Monday before Mercer County Magistrate Susan Honaker on five counts of sexual assault and 10 counts of sexual abuse involving juveniles. The victims in the case were 3, 9 and 13 years of age at the time of the alleged abuse, according to Detective K.L. Adams of the Bluefield Police Department.

Honaker set bond for Irvin at $100,000. Irvin told the court he had no money, and couldn’t afford an attorney. The man avoided eye contact with the news media as he was escorted in and out of the courtroom.

“I can’t come up with $100, not much less $100,000,” Irvin told Honaker.

The man was remanded to the custody of the Southern Regional Jail in Beaver following his arraignment on the charges. Honaker told Irvin that, if convicted, he faces a sentence of 15 to 35 years in prison on each of the sexual assault charges and five to 25 years in prison on each of the sexual abuse charges.

Adams said the investigation began on April 1 following a complaint by Child Protect of Mercer County. The investigation revealed that Irwin was a practicing pagan and wiccan. Adams said the man used his religion to allegedly get close to the children and ultimately sexually abuse them.

Adams said Irvin allegedly told two of the children, who were living with him at the time along with their mother and Irvin’s son, that he would perform magical acts on their mother, who was sick at the time, if they would participate in the sexual abuse.

According to the complaint, Adams began the investigation after watching forensic interviews conducted by Child Protect in February of 2013 on two of the three victims. Adams said the report showed the abuse occurred on Giles Street in Bluefield on or about January of 2007. The two victims, at the time, were ages 3 and 9.

Adams said the stepfather of the children was Irvin’s son. The Child Protect investigation alleged that Irvin inappropriately touched one of the children. In another instance, Irvin and the mother of the juvenile allegedly took her into a room and had her undress, the report said. Irvin allegedly told the juvenile she had to undress in order for her mother to get well and the magic to work. The report then alleges that Irvin undressed the girl and  ordered her to get into a bed where he proceeded once again to inappropriately touch her. The report alleges Irvin also forced the girl to touch his private areas during the encounter. The victim was 3 years old at the time of the alleged offense.

The interview with the second juvenile alleged that the mother, who has not been charged and is cooperating with police in the investigation, believed Irvin was a “magical warlock” as part of his practicing wiccan religion. The report alleged the mother told the juvenile she had to go upstairs and do something with Irvin involving magic to keep her well. Adams said the mother was sick at the time.

After that day, the report alleges that Irvin had the juvenile go upstairs with him everyday after school for at least two weeks, and the mother was no longer present during those times. The report alleges that Irvin ordered the juvenile to remove her clothes and would then inappropriately touch her with his hands. The report alleges Irvin then had sexual intercourse with the juvenile each day during the second week of the alleged abuse. The report alleges that Irvin told the juvenile this had to happen to keep her mother well or the magic would not work.

During an interview with the mother of the two juveniles, the woman said Irvin was attempting to convert her to the pagan/wiccan religion. The woman said Irvin believed in magic, and claimed the “sex tantric magic” was the most powerful of all. However, the woman said Irvin alleged this type of magic would not work unless you had a virgin to perform sex acts on. The woman alleged that on two occasions she performed a ritual with Irvin along with her daughter where all would undress and hold hands around a offering of cheese and crackers.

Adams said he contacted another woman, who is the ex-wife of Irvin, on April 3. The woman is currently living in Texas, and was married to Irvin 20 years ago. After informing the woman of the investigation, she stated that 20 years ago Irvin had allegedly sexually assaulted her daughter, who was 13 at the time. Adams said in the report that Texas authorities were contacted, and an investigation was launched, but Irvin left Texas for West Virginia before the investigation was completed.

Adams said in the report that Child Protect Services in Texas did confirm an investigation was launched in 1994. Adams said he interviewed the third victim on April 3, who alleged she was sexually abused by Irvin from the time she was 5 years old to age 13. The victim is now an adult.

In an interview conducted on April 9, Adams said another victim voluntarily reported to the Bluefield Police Department to give a statement concerning her time at Irvin’s residence in Bluefield. The victim was 11 years old at the time, and alleged that Irvin told her he could perform magic and make her recently deceased father come back to life if she would perform sexual acts with him.

Adams said no additional charges are expected at this time, adding that the mother of the two children is fully cooperating with police. However, the investigation into the alleged crimes continues.

Adams said he is also seeking to interview any other individuals who may have been a victim in the case. Adams can be reached at the Bluefield Police Department at 304-327-6101.

Baby Born With 4 Feet, 4 Hands

A baby born with four arms and four legs had his extra limbs surgically removed on Friday.

The boy, born April 2 in China’s Guangdong Province, is in stable condition after the surgery, the Global Times reports.

#¹ãÖÝ »ûÐÎÓ¤¶ù

Yu Jiakang, chief surgeon at Guangzhou Women and Children’s Medical Center, told the Yangcheng Evening News that the baby was born joined at the torso to a headless parasitic twin.

According to the Evening News, the mother underwent five examinations at various local clinics and hospitals, and doctors found no abnormalities with the fetus.

However, the boy’s father, identified only as “Mr. Chen,” told ImagineChina that he felt guilty about his son’s birth defects because he did not arrange for his wife to receive good enough care.

“I only cared about my work,” he said. “I just thought of making money instead of taking [my wife] to hospital for a medical checkup.”

Arkansas ex-cop killed while trying to set anti-corruption blogger’s hot dog cart on fire

0

AR-blogger-Ean-Bordeaux-via-screencap-615x345A former police officer died while trying to set ablaze a food cart belonging to a blogger who exposed crooked cops and other corrupt city officials. ArkansasMatters.com reported Friday that former Little Rock Police Officer Todd Payne died when blogger Ean Bordeaux (pictured above) tackled him as Payne tried to flee the scene of the attempted arson.

Bordeaux is the proprietor of the Corruption Sucks blog, a webpage dedicated to exposing corruption in the Little Rock local government and in the state government of Arkansas. At about 4:30 a.m. on Friday, he awoke to find the hot dog cart he operates for a living in flames.

“I looked outside and my hot dog cart’s on fire,” he told KARK. The cart operated on propane tanks, which, Bordeaux said, “could have blown up the house.”

He called 911, then ran outside in a bathrobe to put out the blaze. That was when he noticed a heavyset man in a mask running away.

Bordeaux was too busy trying to put out the flames then, he said, but about 15 minutes later, the man in the mask came back. The blogger watched from inside his house as the masked man tried to restart the fire.

Running outside again, Bordeaux said, he tackled the man as he tried to flee, hoping to hold him until police arrived.

Payne hit the pavement face-first, however, and died from his injuries. Bordeaux said his only desire had been to immobilize the perpetrator and hand him over to authorities.

He quickly realized, however, that the dead man was former LRPD officer Todd “Creepy Todd” Payne, who was fired from the force in 2010 for multiple violations, including a DUI crash in which Payne attempted to leave the scene, incidences of witness intimidation, lying to superiors and dereliction of duty.

Bordeaux had written extensively about Payne at Corruption Sucks, and believes that the former cop was attempting to strike back at him for exposing his crimes.

I love you so much, honey. WHAT? You posed in lingerie? IMMA HIRE ME A HITMAN TO KILL YOU

1Dino Guglielmelli, 52, was allegedly fiercely jealous of his wife Monica’s sexy pics.

She had given up her modelling career to marry Dino in 2003 and set up a successful skin care range.

But Monica, from Canyon County, Santa Clarita, chose to walk the catwalk once again following the birth of their children in 2010.

Dino opposed the move, according to sources, and finally “hit the roof” when she posed for photographer Kenneth Matthews.

They began a custody battle over their children and a bitter divorce process. She later found out he was taped trying to hire a friend to kill her.

3A source close to the investigation told the Mail Online: “He became insanely jealous. He could not stand the idea that men were ogling his wife in raunchy magazines like Maxim.

“The tipping point was a photo shoot she did with Kenneth Matthews in 2012. Dino saw the pictures and hit the roof.

“It was a professional shoot in an LA studio, there was a team of assistants, make up artists and stylists. But Dino accused Monica and Kenneth of getting too close.

“Sure the photos are raunchy – they are underwear shots – but that’s what Monica’s fans expect. Dino told her she wasn’t doing anymore photo shoots. Period.

“He stopped her doing anymore movie shoots, he killed a possible movie deal.

“That’s when Monica knew she needed to leave him. And Dino went crazy. He was a control freak who needed to be win at everything. It was then he allegedly hired the hitman.”

Guglielmelli allegedly offered Richard Fuhrmann $80,000 to kill his wife.

2Richard then went to the police and recorded their next conversation. Guglielmelli allegedly discussed specifics about how to perform the murder.

He has been in custody since being unable to find the $10million bail.

Monica is now fighting to regain her share of their skin-care business. Monica’s representatives were unable to comment on the case.

A Pennsylvania high school football coach could be headed to jail after he shoved a student who allegedly farted in his face.

Megan Huntsman Accused Of Using Garage To Store Her Murdered Babies

0

Megan-Huntsman-125x188A 39-year-old woman was arrested Saturday after seven bodies of dead infants were discovered in a Pleasant Grove home, and officials said they believe that, over a 10-year period, she gave birth to six of the children then killed them.

Pleasant Grove Police responded to the home at 530 E. 200 North after residents who were cleaning out a garage found what they believed to be a dead infant in a container.

Capt. Michael Roberts, Pleasant Grove PD, said the residents found “a suspicious package with a pungent smell, and they opened the package partially and found what they believed to be a deceased infant in the box and they called police.”

When they arrived, police found the infant to be at full term, according to a press release from the Pleasant Grove Police Department.

Roberts said a search warrant was obtained and “subsequently six more bodies of infants were found in separate containers, cardboard boxes.”

According to the press release, “During the course of the investigation information was obtained that; over a 10 year period a 39 year old female gave birth to the infants and then killed them.”

According to a probable cause statement released Monday morning, Huntsman admitted to strangling or suffocating the babies immediately after they were born.

Megan Huntsman was booked into the Utah County Jail and faces six counts of murder. Police officials later told FOX 13 News that there are six charges because investigators believe one of the seven was a stillborn child.

On Monday morning, a judge set Huntsman’s bail at $1 million for each count of murder, for a total of $6 million.

FOX 13 News’ Carly Figueroa spoke with neighbors and officials, see the video above for those interviews.

Huntsman had not lived in the home since 2011. Police said Huntsman had shared the home with her husband, a Mr. West, and they had lived there for some time. The man served nine years in federal prison on drug distribution related charges. Police told FOX 13 News the couple was estranged.

The home has two separate residences. The bodies were found in the upper residence with its attached garage, and that residence had not been lived in since 2011 when Huntsman left.

Police said Huntsman told them West was the father of the infants, and police said they believe her. They said they believe the infants were born and killed between 1996 and 2006 while West was not imprisoned. Police said West is not considered a suspect in the infants’ death.

West was among those who found the first infant, and Roberts said, “there’s a strong possibility,” the man opened the box to find his own child dead inside.

Police said the home was owned by West’s parents, who had overseen the home during the time Huntsman lived there while West was in prison.

West returned Saturday, which is when he started to clear out the home. That is when he and those helping him found a box that smelled bad and appeared to contain a dead infant.

Police said during the time Megan Huntsman was living at the home she was there with three children of hers and West’s. Those children are now 13, 18 and 20.

Neighbor Kathie Hawker said Huntsman had moved out of the home after what they called a struggle with substance abuse.

“Yeah, we were worried about her because we could see that she was not looking in good health, and we were worried about the children that lived there with her, her three daughters lived there,” Hawker said.

Kathie’s husband, Aaron Hawker, said it is shocking to learn Huntsman was allegedly pregnant so many times.

He said: “She always looked kind of slim, I mean, to have this many babies full term, it’s like… Where were they?”

Police said several warrants have been issued in the case, including a search warrant for Huntsman’s West Valley City home.

Embarrassing: Trying to rob a hair salon. Really Embarrassing: Have the receptionist laugh in your face. Ultimate embarrassment: Having to call your mom to come pick you up

0

ReceptionistOn the afternoon of April 10, 2014, 29-year-old Ryan Trembly entered Bubbles Hair Salon on a mission. It wasn’t give him a style that would turn heads and attract a new mate, though. Ryan was actually planning to rob the place.

He walked up to the receptionist, put his hand under his under shirt, and demanded that she give him the money in the register. Unfortunately for him, the young lady fooled behind the counter was not fooled by his finger gun. Instead, she simply laughed in his face,

The receptionist also pointed out to reporters (and hopefully not to him) how stupid it was to rob a hair salon since a bank was right next door…although to Ryan’s credit, he may have been correctly setting the bar low with regards to his criminal abilities.

After having completely failed at the robbery (and being completely emasculated), Ryan decided that now was the best time to spit some game, attempting to make small talk with the receptionist before leaving the salon.
