Transgender Teen Killed Self By Walking In Front Of Tractor Trailer, Blames Christian Parents


A 17-year-old boy was struck and killed by a passing semitrailer on southbound Interstate 71 in Union Township Sunday morning.

Joshua Alcorn, 17, of Kings Mills, was in the road near the South Lebanon exit just before 2:30 a.m. when a tractor-trailer operated by Abdullahi Ahmed, 39, of Florence, hit the boy, according to police reports.

Alcorn was transported from the scene by the Warren County Coroner’s Office.

Ahmed was wearing a seat belt during the accident and was uninjured. Police do not yet know whether or not he was impaired.

Southbound I-71 was closed for just under an hour before reopening Sunday morning.

The incident is being investigated by the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Leelah-AlcornIn life, Leelah Alcorn felt alone. Born male, she feared she would never be the woman she felt like inside.

In death, the transgender 17-year-old – born Josh Alcorn – wanted to make sure others never felt the way she did.

“The only way I will rest in peace is if one day transgender people aren’t treated the way I was, they’re treated like humans, with valid feelings and human rights,” Alcorn wrote in a post on the social media blog site Tumblr.

“My death needs to mean something,” she wrote in the post, which she scheduled to appear the day after her death.

That plea marked her final public words.

On Sunday, just before 2:30 a.m., Alcorn walked 4 miles from her middle-class Kings Mills neighborhood with its views of Kings Island to Interstate 71. There, she was struck and killed by a tractor-trailer. The highway was closed for more than a hour.

By Tuesday evening, Leelah’s story had become a worldwide story – one of how transgender teens often feel alone and afraid. The hashtag #LeelahAlcorn was topping Twitter; news sites worldwide had picked up the story; and someone had even created a Wikipedia page for Alcorn.

The State Highway Patrol continues to investigate; no charges have been filed. Her body was sent to the Montgomery County coroner for an autopsy, which will take several weeks.’s family declined to comment to The Enquirer. In a statement via the Kings Local School District, the family requested privacy.

Alcorn’s mother, Carla Wood Alcorn, wrote on Facebook Sunday, “My sweet 16-year-old son, Joshua Ryan Alcorn, went home to Heaven this morning. He was out for an early morning walk and was hit by a truck. Thank you for the messages and kindness and concern you have sent our way. Please continue to keep us in your prayers.” The post has since been taken down.

According to the school statement, Alcorn attended Kings schools and was most recently enrolled as an 11th grader at the Ohio Virtual Academy, an online school.

Teen Kills Dog in Washing Machine for Fun


If you are an animal lover, then be warned as this might disturb you. Jacky Lo, a Chinese teenager in Hong Kong, has sparked outrage over posting pictures of a dog in a washing machine on Facebook.


He included the following description, presumably to show it as an efficient way of bathing the poor thing: “a super quick way to wash a dog: soak, clean and dry. All Done! Clean and quick!”


Unfortunately, the dog passed away at the second washing.

The death seems not to have perturbed Lo one bit, as seen in the comments section of that very post:

Agnes: Did the dog die?
Lo: Yes, wanna see it?
Agnes: OK! You’ll certainly get famous!
Lo: Whatever, I’ve nothing to be scared of.
Agnes: Don’t delete anything from your Facebook!! Including THIS album!
Lo: I don’t care what you guys are going to do! Do I look afraid of you guys?
Agnes: So you don’t think animal cruelty is a problem?
Lo: I don’t even think human cruelty is a problem, not to mention cats and dogs!

The seemingly sociopathic teen is believed to be the son of rich parents that immigrated from mainland China, as evidenced by his other posts that feature fancy cars, bottles of champagne, and lots of cash.

The online public is now petitioning to bring Lo to justice, and the story has gained international attention. The case is currently being investigated by the Tuen Mun District police.

Under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Ordinance of Hong Kong, the penalty for such cruelty to animals is a fine of HK$200,000 and imprisonment of up to three years.

Tiffany Vanalstyne, 19, Accused Of Strangling Her 5-Year-Old Cousin To Death


A 19-year-old woman strangled a 5-year-old cousin who had been in her parents’ care, then discarded his body along a road before calling in a false report that two masked intruders took the boy from their Albany-area home, authorities said Friday.

Tiffany VanAlstyne’s bogus 911 call on Thursday afternoon set off a search for Kenneth White that lasted into the night, authorities said. A search dog picked up a scent at about 9 p.m., and Kenneth’s body was found in a culvert, covered with snow VanAlstyne used in a bid to hide the crime, Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple said.

‘‘We’re angry we had a 5-year-old taken from us, a senseless death,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s sinful and it’s sad.’’

VanAlstyne was charged Friday with second-degree murder. She said nothing at her arraignment. She is due back in court on Tuesday for an initial hearing to enter a plea.

Apple declined to comment on a motive and said authorities believe VanAlstyne acted alone. VanAlstyne is represented by the Albany County Public Defender’s Office, which did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

VanAlstyne’s parents have been the legal guardians of Kenneth, his twin sister Cheyenne, and 4-year-old sister Christine since September, and the children had lived in the home for more than a year. Apple said he did not believe the other children were in the room where White was attacked.

VanAlstyne strangled the boy and tossed his body ‘‘like a piece of trash’’ over a guard rail along a rural two-lane road about 40 yards from the trailer home in the town of Berne sometime before making the 911 call just after 1 p.m. Thursday, Apple said. The child had also suffered a blow to the head.

The 911 call touched off a search that included an Amber Alert describing the kidnappers as two men, clad all in black and driving a black pickup truck.

But Apple said the interrogation of VanAlstyne and others began to yield contradictions that threw the abduction story into doubt.

‘‘Things did not start to add up,’’ he said, and investigators got a warrant to return to the home, about 23 miles southeast of Albany.

The children’s mother lives in Amsterdam, west of Albany, and the father in Massachusetts. Authorities would not say why the children had been place in the care of their aunt, Brenda VanAlstyne.

Apple said it was common for Tiffany VanAlstyne to baby-sit the children when her mother and father, Kenneth VanAlstyne, weren’t home. He said police had been to the home on a number of occasions for unspecified reasons but had no reason to believe the children weren’t safe.

But he and District Attorney P. David Soares now say the boy’s sisters are with child protection authorities because of what Apple described as problems at the home ‘‘that put peoples’ lives in danger.’’

Soares said a number of agencies are investigating the children’s living conditions.

Walmart Worker, 18, Caught Using, Then Returning Old Spice Deodorant Sticks To Store Shelves


Not every teenager working at a big box retailer is as dreamy as Alex from Target.

crobertsAn 18-year-old Walmart employee who used Old Spice deodorant sticks before returning them to store shelves is facing an embezzlement probe after admitting he swiped more than $1800 in merchandise from a South Carolina store.

Store security began monitoring Chandler Roberts after he was filmed taking milk and cookies–which he had not purchased–into a break room,according to a police report.

When confronted about his actions, Roberts “admitted to stealing several items,” and later “returned numerous stolen items to asset protection” officials. Walmart calculated that the purloined goods were worth $1823.25.

More importantly, as noted by cops, Roberts was twice videotaped “selecting a stick of Old Spice deodorant,” which he proceeded to apply while in the store’s bedding department. On both occasions, the teen then returned the toiletry item to a store shelf. Cops did not address whether the used deodorant ended up being purchased by a customer.

Police are continuing to investigate the Walmart thefts.

Four Sick Fucks Use ” Sex Party ” As An Excuse To Rape Minors


Four men are facing charges related to what a 17-year-old describes as party involving sex, drugs, alcohol and minors in a Madison hotel room.


Lucas J. Anderson, 20, Hanife E. Johnson, 21, and Jourdyn Ross, 20, all of Madison, are charged with sexual assault of a child under age 16, party to the crime of child enticement, and party to the crime of causing a child under age 13 to view or listen to sexual activity. Joseph D. Barney Jr., 22, of Madison, was charged with party to the crime of child enticement and party to the crime of causing a child under age 13 to view or listen to sexual activity.

According to a criminal complaint, a 17-year-old told police she was driven to the Red Roof Inn at 4830 Hayes Road on Aug. 3 by Barney, Anderson, and Ross and a 14- and 15-year-old were also in the vehicle.

When they got to the hotel room, Johnson answered the door and a 16-year-old was inside, according to the report.

Police said a post on Anderson’s Facebook account on Aug. 3 showed Anderson, Ross and Barney in the hotel parking lot holding liquor and inviting people to come to the hotel to smoke marijuana and party with them. A detective said they were using hand gestures consistent with gang signs.

The 17-year-old told police the girls were told to play drinking games in which the girls ended up in some state of undress exposing their breasts and other body parts. She said the girls were getting drunk and the boys were not drinking so much.

She told police she performed sexual acts with the other minors in the room and with three of the men. She described to police many people in the room having sex, and said that at one point, the lights went out and photos were taken with cellphones.

She said at one point that night, one of the minors had drunk too much alcohol, and she had to take her to find help.

Ross and Anderson are due in court for a preliminary hearing on Wednesday.

Family Exiles Misbehaving Teenage Daughter to Siberia


Sofia-Petrova-Siberia2-550x309While most parents punish kids by sending them to their room, Sofia Petrova’s mother went a little further than that – she exiled her misbehaving daughter to another country. The 18-year-old hasn’t been home in three years; her mother hasn’t permitted her to return in spite of repeated apologies and pleas.

So how does a parent actually convince a 15-year-old high school freshman to board a plane to Siberia? Well, it turns out that Sofia was tricked. Her mother and stepfather told her that they were sending her on a three-week vacation to visit her biological father for the first time. But when Sofia reached Novosibirsk city, she realised the chilling truth – there was no return ticket.

That’s when her mother and stepfather informed her that she was actually being ‘punished’ for her typical teenager behavior – flunking school, running away from home and stealing money. She was to remain in Siberia with her father until she learned to change her ways. Sofia was pretty much helpless; although she grew up in the US, she was born in Siberia and had a Russian passport. So she needed her mother’s consent to return.
