Just a wee suggestion, but if you’re going to talk about your plot to follow a dude home and murder him? Make sure all of your electronic devices are off. That’s the hard lesson learned by Florida man Scott Simon learned earlier this week when he accidentally butt-dialed 911 in the midst of discussing his plan to kill.
Simon can be heard chatting up his murder plot minutes before Nicholas Walker was shot while driving on I-95. The shooting, and the resulting car crash, shut down the highway for several hours. And while police don’t believe Simon pulled the trigger, they do think he collaborated with someone else to kill Walker. Earlier in the day, Walker and Simon got in an altercation — at a local Waffle House.

When I was a 10-year-old, the worst thing a boy did to me was put Scotch tape in my hair. If only! Proof that society is going down the toilet: two fifth grade boys in Colville, Washington, have first-degree murder conspiracy charges against them for plotting to rape and kill their female classmate. They were discovered on February 7 after a child saw one of the boys playing with a knife on the school bus; in a backpack, the kids had a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol (stolen from a family member) and ammunition. One of the boys explained, “She’s rude and always made fun of me and my friends.” Keep reading »
Oh Tatsujiro Fukasawa, you do know a woman’s weakness, don’t you? Fukasawa, 40, attempted to kill a female colleague he’d been stalking by pouring hydrofluoric acid into her shoes. Hydrofluoric acid acid can be absorbed via the skin and cause everything from skin abrasions to internal organ failure. The woman realized something was wrong when she developed gangrene on her left foot. It’s not known how much permanent damage the acid has caused.
For his part, Fukasawa denies the charges. Police are also investigating what they believe may be a related case: the same woman said she was forced to go to the hospital this past October after experiencing pain while wearing a pair of boots. [Japan Times]
A mother in Indonesia confessed to murdering her son because she was concerned that his “small penis” would ruin his future prospects. The 38-year-old drowned the boy in the bathtub, dressed him, laid him on a bed, and went to the authorities to report her crime. She told police that the boy always had a small penis but it “appeared to shrink further” after he was circumcised. The woman is currently undergoing psychological evaluation.
I think I’ll need to undergo a psych eval too after reading this story. Please tell me what’s wrong with people? This is an absolute tragedy. [Raw Story]
Whoa, boy. A woman in Las Vegas, Nevada, was arrested for placing a hit on her husband and charged with plotting his attempted drive-by murder. Amy Bessey allegedly contracted her 21-year-old adopted son, Michael Bessey, and a friend, Richard Pearson, to carry out the attack on Roger Bessey, but their attempt was foiled.
But here’s where things get REALLY weird.

Last week, two young children, Leo and Lulu Krim, were allegedly stabbed to death by their nanny in their home in Manhattan. The children’s mother discovered the bodies as Yoselyn Ortega, the nanny, began to hack at her own throat. Although the nanny survived, she is hospitalized and unable to speak.
The reports to date are that the Krim family was kind to the nanny — there were no bad feelings on either side of the relationship. A friend of the Krim family recommended Ms. Ortega, and she’d been their employee for approximately two years.
Parents are searching for an explanation that makes the incident understandable believing that if they can understand why it occurred, they can take precautions to avoid a similar catastrophe. These deaths happened at the hands of a nanny, but children may be harmed in daycare, in school, at Boy Scouts or … the list is long. Too long. Keep reading »
