16-year-old girl says man died during sex act … but there’s more


Glendale police have arrested a 16-year-old girl in connection with the strangulation death of a Phoenix man during what she claimed to be a consensual sex act, officials said.

The girl, whose name was not released by police because she is a juvenile, was booked Saturday into a detention facility on suspicion of second-degree murder. She remained there Tuesday.

Police were called to the 6200 block of West Olive Avenue on Saturday at about 5:45 p.m. on report of a injured person in an apartment. What they found instead was a dead 43-year-old man, officials said.

Sgt. Jay O’Neill, a Glendale police spokesman, Jason Ash had several cuts to his body and a cord around his neck.

Police first interviewed the teenager’s mother, who said she had been home for a time but left her daughter and her daughter’s friend, Ash, alone at the apartment.

She later received a call from her daughter indicating that she and Ash were involved in a consensual sex act involving strangulation, and that Ash was dead, according to police. The mother said she returned to the apartment, called 911 and attempted to resuscitate Ash.

Police said the 16-year-old had fled the apartment before officers arrived; she was taken into custody at neighboring unit.

O’Neill said the teenager confessed to strangling Ash during a sex act and to cutting him. Police are not releasing her name because it’s not yet clear if she will be charged as an adult.

Police said the investigation is ongoing.

Jonas David Nelson Shoots His Dad Dead For Acting Like A Probation Officer


b2049c6a7afa1f7c1de08077c7e6bf39_zpsdaf18ae0About five minutes after allegedly shooting his sleeping father in the head, Jonas David Nelson stepped outside the small two-story house on five acres southeast of Montgomery and called 911 to report a murder.

When Le Sueur County sheriff’s deputies Todd Lau and Scott O’Brien arrived at the house at 10604 Le Sueur Ave. just after 11 p.m. Monday, Nelson was waiting outside in his father’s pickup truck and said someone else shot his father.

He told the deputies 47-year-old Richard Nelson was inside the house lying on the living room floor. The deputies went inside and found Richard Nelson’s body, his head on a pillow and his body covered with a blanket.

Detective Bruce Collins arrived at the house about 45 minutes later. In addition to finding a single gunshot wound to Richard Nelson’s head, he also found what looked like a bullet hole in the lower right corner of a glass patio door. He found a gun case with multiple firearms in an adjacent room, according to a criminal complaint charging 18-year-old Jonas Nelson with second-degree murder.

Jonas Nelson told Collins he was in his bedroom on the second floor watching television when he heard what he thought was a gunshot breaking a glass window. It was about 2:40 a.m. Tuesday, and what would have been Richard Nelson’s birthday,

At first Nelson told the investigators he didn’t know what to do after he walked downstairs, found his father and saw his “brains were splattered all over the floor and pillow.”

“As the conversation continued, Nelson explained that his dad was blaming his mother for the divorce when actually it was his dad’s fault for his mother leaving him,” the complaint said.

He told the investigators things had been “weird” since he moved back. He also described his father as being “harsh” with religious views that “screwed him up as a parent,” the complaint said. The past month had been rough because his father was acting like a “probation officer.”

Richard Nelson already had left the house Monday morning when Jonas Nelson got up at about 8:30 a.m. He said he added a load of wood to the wood burner in the living room because the furnace wasn’t working properly. His dad returned home at about 1:30 p.m. and questioned him about keeping the wood burning furnace going, the complaint said.

He went up to his bedroom and didn’t come back downstairs until dinner time. Nelson told Collins and Anderson he went back up to his bedroom to watch movies after having something to eat. He said his dad often slept in the living room because it was cold in his bedroom. It was about 10:30 p.m. when he heard the “popping noise.”

The investigators eventually told Nelson the crime scene was going to be extensively investigated and they would figure out what happened. They also said it would be best for Nelson to tell the truth because it was going to come out anyway.

At that point Nelson allegedly told them “what happened in there was me.”

“Nelson explained that when he came downstairs to get some water, he saw his dad sleeping on the floor and he doesn’t know for sure why but he went into the gun cabinet and got one of the rifles and then ‘did it to him,’” the complaint said. “Nelson explained he got the tall silver bolt action 300 rifle from the gun cabinet, he got some cartridges from the drawer and the ‘took his time’ walking into the living room and stood in front of the stove and ‘took his life.’”

Nelson also told the investigators he had never been driven to rage before, but he “just snapped” because of the way his dad had been treating him. He said he thought about killing his father in his sleep while he was sitting upstairs, according to the complaint. He allegedly said he shot his father at close range and that he placed the two fired cartridges in a bucket in the basement. Although two shots were allegedly fired, it was determined that Richard Nelson had been shot once, the complaint said.

The investigators reported they asked Nelson how he felt about shooting his father.

“He replied that part of him feels good because he doesn’t have to deal with him, but the other part realizes his dad isn’t there anymore,” the complaint said.

When the hearing continued, Baxter set Nelson’s bail at $2 million. Singer sat directly behind him and squeezed the knee of her younger son as she listened to Lea ask the judge to release Nelson without bail. Lea explained that Jonas Nelson was home schooled, has had minimal employment and would live at his mother’s house if he were released.

“Frankly, you could set bail at $5,000 and he wouldn’t be able to come up with it,” Lea said while asking Baxter to set a lower bail amount.

There’s drunk, and then there’s “amputations on parts of both feet” drunk


A teen is recovering after undergoing surgery after she suffered severe hypothermia when she spent the night outside in subzero temperatures.

1386766893000-alyssa-lommel-1280Police say 19-year-old Alyssa Jo Lommel had been out drinking with friends Dec. 6 and was dropped off at her Duluth house around midnight. A passer-by spotted Lommel on her front stoop about nine hours later.

In an update on Alyssa’s CaringBridge page, her mother Teri stated that her daughter’s surgery went well.  She remains in the burn unit at Regions Hospital, but is no longer an ICU patient.

Doctors amputated the tips of her toes on one foot, and up to the ball of the foot on the other.

Teri stated that they are concerned about Alyssa’s heels, which have more damage than they initially thought.  According to Teri, surgery on her hands is expected in two weeks.

A fund has been set up for her at Bremer Bank in St. Cloud.

Starbucks Worker Feels Violated After Seeing A Penis


oY3S5JxPolice said they’re searching for a man accused of exposing himself multiple times over several weeks at drive-thru coffee shops in Lake Oswego, Tigard and Tualatain.

“I just feel really violated,” said a 20-year-old woman who was working behind the drive-through window at the Starbucks on Boones Ferry Road in Lake Oswego on Thursday evening.

“It keeps replaying in my head,” she said, wiping away tears.

KATU agreed not to use her name.

Lake Oswego Police are tracking down surveillance video and hope to release images soon.

Tigard police said they’ve investigated similar incidents starting in November at drive-through windows at Dutch Bros. and Coffee Rush locations.

Police believe they’re connected because witnesses describe a similar-looking man.

“He wanted a grande coffee,” said the Lake Oswego Starbucks worker. “He pulled up to the window. I went to the  window. Someone else went to get the coffee. I was like, ‘Hi!”  I saw what  happened and immediately walked away.”

The worker went to a back room and called police.

She said the man was chubby with a large belly.  He was driving an older sedan, maybe a Ford, that was grey or dark brown, according to witnesses and police.

“He had his hand covering his face,” the woman said. “I saw his shirt was pulled up to his chest. I don’t know the proper way to say it. He was exposing himself. Playing with himself.

“I’ve been having trouble sleeping. It’s still bugging me. I just feel really violated. It’s replaying in my head.”

The worker stayed on the job for several hours after the incident on Thursday, but has not returned to work. Her first day back is scheduled to be Sunday.

“We wear headsets that ding when there’s a customer,” she said. “Every single time it dinged, I’m like, Oh God, is he back … or … I’m  nervous for wearing the headset.”

Man smeared feces on church door, masturbated on church steps


14009938-smallA 19-year-old Bay City man faces two criminal charges after police allege he was caught on camera  smearing his feces on a local church’s door and masturbating on the church’s steps.

In the summer of 2013, the Bay County Sheriff’s Office received a report that someone was going to New Hope Baptist Church, 3360 E. Midland Road in Bangor Township, during nighttime hours and smearing feces on a door, court records show. On Nov. 22, a property manager for the church dropped off to deputies a feces-stained sock and a DVD containing surveillance camera footage, court records show.

The video was shot around 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 19, and depicts a person approaching the church’s south door on a bicycle. The man squats near the door and appears to defecate, then puts socks on his hands, picks up the feces and rubs it on the door and its handle, court records show.

The man then removes the socks from his hands, tosses them aside and retrieves a magazine from his bicycle, the video shows. The man then sits on the stairs near the door and appears to masturbate before fleeing on his bike, court records show.

The property manager who dropped off the sock and DVD to police theorized the culprit to be Joshua A. Gorski.

A few days later, a deputy interviewed Gorski. When asked about the last time he went to church, Gorski did not respond. The deputy told him the incident was caught on camera, and Gorski proceeded to apologize and said he had committed the offense, police allege.

The deputy alleges Gorski said he perpetrated the same actions at the church four to five times in 2013.

“He stated that he lives in an apartment with his mother and father and does not have enough privacy to do the things he wants,” the deputy wrote in his report, contained in court records.

Gorski was on probation at the time, having been sentenced to one year in August 2013 on charges of assaulting, resisting or obstructing police and minor in possession of alcohol.

Authorities issued a warrant for Gorski on Friday, Dec. 20.  Bay County District Judge Mark E. Janer on Monday, Dec. 23, arraigned Gorski on single counts of aggravated indecent exposure, a two-year high-court misdemeanor, and malicious destruction of a building less than $200, a 93-day misdemeanor.

Cell phone robbery goes bad, man gets shot, killed – by bullet that bounced off the victim’s face


untitledA teenage boy who was shot dead in San Francisco this month was slain not by an enemy but by an accomplice in a street robbery, after a bullet fired at the victim ricocheted off his face, police said Friday.

Officials released the shocking details of the death of 16-year-old Clifton Chatman while announcing the arrest of one of the alleged thieves, who is also 16, on suspicion of murder and attempted robbery.

Due to his age, the suspect was not identified. Police did not say whether they believed he was the shooter.

The incident happened Dec. 14 near the Alemany public housing complex in Bernal Heights. Police said a group of suspects accosted a man at about 11 p.m., and that as they dug through the victim’s possessions and took his phone, one of them pulled out a handgun.

The victim did not resist and complied with all demands, police said, but the gunman still opened fire. The bullet, though, glanced off the victim’s face and struck Chatman, who was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said.

The target of the robbery was hospitalized, but is expected to survive. Investigators are still searching for the other males involved in the crime.

Here’s hoping the vast majority of krokodil users pick a better injection site than their vagina


krokodilDoctors in Mexico originally suspected a 17-year-old girl had contracted a sexually transmitted disease, until they learned she had injected Krokodil into her genitals.

The 17-year-old, who was not named, is the first case of Krokodil in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco.

Doctors said they were shocked by the “severe lacerations” on the patient’s genitals.

Known as the “drug that eats junkies,” the morphine derivative is cut with chemicals like household cleaners, paint thinner and even gasoline. It’s known to rot flesh at the injection site, a condition otherwise known as gangrene.

“The young woman who used this drug had an infection that had rotted her genitals,” José Sotero Ruiz Hernández of Mexico’s National Institute of Migration told Mexican newspaper El Periodico Correo.

“It wasn’t sexually transmitted,” he added. “She said she’d been using Krokodil for the last two month.”

The patient told authorities that the drug was readily available and that she’d also seen it in Mexico City.

More potent than heroin and three times cheaper, Krokodil originated in Russia and was named for the crocodile after it gave users green, gangrenous skin.

It has spread across Russia since 2002, with 3 million users in 2011, New York Daily News reported.

Teen Reportedly Injects Flesh-Eating Drug Into Genitals


s-KROKODIL-MEXICO-large300Public authorities in Mexico shared details of a gruesome case of the flesh-eating drug krokodil, the first to be officially reported in the state of Jalisco.

According to José Sotero Ruiz Hernández, an official with Mexico’s National Institute of Migration, a 17-year-old girl in Puerto Vallarta presented lacerations to her genitals that she said were caused by her addiction to krokodil.

“The young woman who used this drug had an infection that had rotted her genitals. It wasn’t sexually transmitted. She said she’d been using krokodil for the last two months,” Hernandez said, according to a Huffington Post translation of Mexican newspaper El Periodico Correo.

The woman told authorities that the drug was readily available on street corners. Hernandez added that the drug has also been reported in Mexico City.

Krokodil is a street drug with effects similar to heroin that is made by cooking crushed codeine pills with household chemicals. It is significantly cheaper than heroin, and reportedly ten times as potent. However, the impurities in the drug damage vascular tissue, which causes the flesh to rot.

Although it has been reported frequently since September, there have been no confirmed cases of krokodil in the United States since 2004. Skeptics maintain that cases where intravenous drug users presented scaly sores or rotting flesh associated with krokodil could have been caused from infections contracted as a result of using dirty needles.

Krokodil was first produced in Russia, where a scarcity of heroin and an abundance of over-the-counter codeine fueled a pandemic that peaked in 2011, when approximately 1 million people were addicted to it. Legislation restricting the sale of codeine has reportedly caused a decline in use in Russia since then, but krokodil remains a serious concern.

Oh Then, Japan: Little Underwear For Your Smartphone



Apparently these little rubber underwears from Bandai are all the rage for smartphone owners in Japan because Japan is Japan and I’m tired of trying to understand. They come in a variety of styles and are sold randomly in plastic capsule machines for 200 yen ($2). Didn’t get the pair you want? Try again! Still didn’t? Now would be a good time to reevaluate just how important having a particular pair of rubber underwear for your smartphone is to you.




Japan is a land of linguistic vagaries. Take the kanji character 食, which means “eat.” Ordinarily, it’s pronounced “tabe,” but it can also be pronounced “ku,” depending on which phonetic characters follow it. Oh, unless it’s followed or preceded by a non-phonetic character, in which case it’s pronounced “shoku.”

You know what else Japan is a land of? Unabashed fetishes.

These two characteristics combine on November 28, Knee-High Socks Day.

So what sort of linguistic gymnastics led to November 28’s designation as the best day to appreciate a strip of exposed thigh? First, we have to rewrite the date as “11-28″. Next, we break the numbers up into their original digits, giving us 1-1-2-8.

Ordinarily, 1 is read as “ichi” in Japanese, but an alternate reading is just “i.” Double this up and you get “ii,” which means “good.”

The number 2 keeps its standard pronunciation of “ni.” 8 is usually read as “hachi.” However, just like the knee-high socks that are most highly regarded by their connoisseurs coming so close to concealing the entire leg, “hachi” is so close to “hai” that those who thought up the observance of Knee-High Day decided to just go ahead and make the switch.

▼ Apparently “close enough” is acceptable in horse shoes, hand grenades, and excuses to gaze at/show off the female form.


Put it all together, and you’ve got “ii ni hai,” a mishmash of Japanese and English that comes out sounding like “good knee-high (socks).”

And now that we’ve taken a closer look at the origins of Knee-High Day, it’s time for a closer look at the fashion it celebrates. Please be aware that some of the following images might be less than appropriate for browsing at the workplace, but then that all depends where you work – this is everyday fare in the RocketNews24 office.

Also, since this year Knee-High Day coincides with Thanksgiving in America, you might want to wait until your relatives are enjoying a post-turkey nap before you yourself enjoy this collection of knee-high photos. There’s only one thing we could imagine being more embarrassing than Grandma being shocked by the pictures below, which is Grandma being inspired by them.







It’s good to have good knee-high socks day!
