Ugh, this story is so awful. Fifteen-year-old Tylar Witt pleaded guilty to murdering her own mother. Tylar was furious after her mother read her diary and reported her 19-year-old boyfriend, Steven Colver, to authorities for statutory rape. Later that evening, her mother was drugged and then stabbed several times in her sleep. Tylar and Steven dyed their hair and fled to San Francisco where they were eventually apprehended.

If you found pornography in your partner’s possession, what would you do? Shellyann Henry, of Brooklyn, New York, found porn in her husband Rudolph’s possession and stabbed him to death with a pair of scissors. Shellyann, who has a 4-year-old son with Rudolph, apparently freaked out after finding a porn DVD in the couple’s DVD player. The incident sparked a violent argument in which Rudolph grabbed a kitchen knife and Shellyann wielded scissors. Though there were no domestic violence reports filed with police, neighbors said that they often heard the couple fighting.

Okay, I am going to give you the Cliff’s Notes version of this bizarro murder story. Follow along, kiddies. Once upon a time there were two porn stars, Jason Andrews and Amanda Logue, who met on the set of a porn shoot and fell in love. Their love was so deep that they were able to ignore the fact that Amanda had a husband and child somewhere in Georgia. The lovebirds liked to text, Tweet, and post photos of themselves on Facebook. How sweet. Keep reading »
I know most of us have been enjoying the World Cup with an appropriate amount of fervor, but then one psycho has to go and ruin it for the rest of us. A 27-year-old Texas man named Hector Castro has been accused of beating his 2-year-old stepdaughter to death because she wouldn’t stop crying while he was trying to watch the World Cup. It gets worse. He allegedly tried to shove a bolt down her throat to make it look like she had choked to death. The lunatic has been charged with murder and is being held on $1 million bail. I hope he gets his to the fullest extent of the law. What a tragedy. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
In a Joran van der Sloot total shocker, the 22-year-old has retracted the confession he gave to police in Peru about killing Stephany Flores. And when I say “shocker,” I mean that it was totally expected as it’s the exact same thing he did in the Holloway case—confess and then deny. A reporter from the Dutch newspaper, De Telegraaf, interviewed van der Sloot in his prison cell. “I was tricked,” van der Sloot said about the confession he gave. “I was very scared and confused during the interrogations and wanted to get away. In my blind panic, I signed everything, but didn’t even know what it said.” [NY Post] Keep reading »
“He was amazing. He was romantic. … [Our relationship] was very playful, very honest. We could sit and talk for hours. We liked looking into each other’s eyes. … I told him I liked red Skittles, and what he did was he made this vase at school, went and bought a lot of Skittles packets, he took all the red ones out, and as a present I got a vase full of red Skittles. He did things like that he was real thoughtful. [But] he would lie for no apparent reason at all, and if you caught him at it, he would double down and be even more serious about the story.”

He’s now in prison in Peru after confessing to the murder of Stephany Flores Ramirez and is still the leading suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway [NY Post] Keep reading »
I bet you guys didn’t see this one coming—and yes, that is sarcasm. Joran Van Der Sloot, the 22-year-old Dutch dude who was long thought to be involved in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in 2005, has confessed to killing Stephany Flores Ramirez, the 21-year-old daughter of a prominent Peruvian business man and former presidential candidate. Ramirez’s body was found in a hotel room at the Hotel Tac in Lima on June 2nd, half dressed and covered in a sheet. The room was registered to Van Der Sloot, who had already taken off for Chile when the body was found. Authorities picked him up—he is also wanted for extortion—and brought him back to Peru where he gave a tearful confession last night. “I did not want to do it,” he said. “The girl intruded into my private life.”
So what happened? Keep reading »
Joran Van Der Sloot, 22, has the world’s creepiest name. And he’s a suspect in a murder trial. Again. If his name sounds familiar, it’s because this Dutch dude was arrested twice in connection with the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, once shortly after she disappeared during a graduation trip to Aruba in 2005 and again in 2007. In 2008, a Dutch reporter recorded Van Der Sloot allegedly telling a friend how he hid Holloway’s body (which hasn’t been found)—but Van Der Sloot has denied that was what he was referring to.
Now Stephany Flores Ramirez, the 21-year-old daughter of Peruvian racecar driver Ricardo Flores, is missing — and she was last seen with Van Der Sloot. Keep reading »
