16-Year-Old Japanese Girl Charged With Decapitating Friend

Japanese Girl Charged With Decapitating Friend

A 16-year-old Japanese girl described by friends as emotionally unstable has been charged with bludgeoning and decapitating a 15-year-old friend, telling police “I did it all by myself,” the Japan News reports. The body of Aiwa Matsuo was found early yesterday in the suspect’s Sasebo apartment, where she’d lived alone since April; Aiwa’s left hand and head had been cut off. Police say the unnamed suspect hit Aiwa over the head several times with a metal instrument on Saturday night, then strangled her with a cord; an autopsy today revealed Aiwa died of suffocation. The pair had been friends since middle school. Read more on Newser…

Mommie Dearest: Mother Arrested For Leaving 9-Year-Old At The Park While She Went To Work

Mommie Dearest: Mother Arrested For Leaving 9-Year-Old At The Park While She Went To Work

Another day, another mother arrested for trying to have it all. And by “have it all,” I mean struggling to figure out child care with little support while maintaining a minimum wage food-service industry job.

A 46-year-old Black mother from South Carolina was jailed for letting her nine-year old daughter play at the park unsupervised while she went to work. Let’s look at the facts, as detailed by Free Range Kids’ Lenore Skenazy:

  1. Debra Harrell works at a McDonald’s in North Augusta, South Carolina.
  2. Her nine-year-old daughter had been accompanying her to work for most of the summer, bringing along a laptop and using McD’s free wifi to keep her busy while Harrell worked her shift.
  3. Harrell’s home was recently robbed and the laptop was stolen, causing her daughter to request being dropped off at a local park.
  4. Harrell’s daughter was given a cell phone to call her in case she needed anything.
  5. On her third day at the park by herself, a stranger questioned Harrell’s daughter  about her mother’s whereabouts, called the police, and subsequently, Harrell was arrested on abandonment charges.

New York Times Cover Story Reveals How Hobart & William Smith Massively Failed Student Rape Victim

hobart william smith

It has the elements of so many sexual assault allegations before it: fraternity members, a lot of alcohol, football players, freshman girls. And like too many other stories about sexual assault, this one also includes a university that failed a sexual assault victim and allowed campus rapists to get off scot-free.

This weekend, The New York Times published a gut-punch of a piece (on their front page, in fact) about a young woman called Anna who is a student at Hobart & William Smith, a college in upstate New York. During her first few weeks of college, Anna was sexually assaulted while drunk by several football players on the night of a frat party. After Anna sent texts that she was afraid, a friend found her drunkenly bent over a pool table, face down, surrounded by six or seven football players, including one right behind her who had his pants down.

15-Year-Old Girl Plays Dead After Abusive Ex-Uncle Murders Her Whole Family

spring texas murder

Here’s a story that has me heavy in the heart:

Last night in Spring, Texas, a man looking for his ex-wife — whom he had beaten in the past — tied up and murdered the ex-wife’s sister, brother-in-law, and four of their children “execution-style” after they would not reveal his ex-wife’s location.

Ron Lee Haskell forced himself into his sister-in-law’s house near Houston while looking for his ex-wife Melanie Haskell (who was not there). He reportedly tied up everyone in the family and asked them to reveal his ex-wife’s location. When they couldn’t or wouldn’t answer, he shot six of them to death and wounded another, a 15-year-old girl named Cassidy Stay.

Cassidy told police she played dead until her ex-uncle left, at which point she called 911 and reported that Haskell was on his way to murder her grandparents. That phone call by Cassidy — who is currently in critical condition — appears to have saved her grandparents’ lives. Keep reading »

#JusticeForJada: 16-Year-Old Texas Girl’s Alleged Rape Goes Viral With #JadaPose

Justice For Jada

A 16-year-old girl in Houston, Texas named Jada has had her alleged rape photographed, posted on social media, and then mocked across the Internet with the tasteless hashtag #jadapose.

Jada — who has given KHOU 11 News in Texas permission to identify her first name and broadcast her face — attended a party last month at the home of a friend-of-a-friend. Jada said the teen boy hosting the party gave her a glass of punch, which she drank before passing out. She believes she was drugged.

Until she started receiving texts asking her if she was OK and seeing tweets, photos and Vines of her alleged rape posted online, Jada told KHOU that she had no idea what happened to her while she was passed out. And those images, might I remind you, could perhaps get the people sharing them busted for distributing child pornography. (KHOU blurs out the images in their broadcast posted above.) ”I had no control to say ‘no,’” Jada told the news station about what happened to her. “I didn’t tell anyone to take my clothes off and do what they did to me.”  Keep reading »

Father Charged With Murder, Suspected Of Intentionally Leaving His Toddler Son In Hot Car (While He Sexted A 17-Year-Old)

  • What-the-everloving-fuck: Justin Harris, the Georgia man whose toddler son died two weeks ago while left inside a hot car, is now suspected of intentionally killing his child. Harris was leading a double life, sexting with women — including a 17-year-old —  on the day his son died. He had also allegedly been frequenting an Internet forum that promotes a child-free lifestyle and searching online for how long it takes a person to die inside a car. Even more damningly, security footage showed Harris returning to his car several times throughout the day, making it just about impossible for him to not have noticed his kid in the backseat. We are disgusted. [ABC News] Keep reading »
