The Food Network’s Calorie Commando Recruited Homeless Dudes To Murder His Wife

Former Food Network chef Juan-Carlos Cruz got himself into a recipe for disaster earlier this month. Most well-known as the host of “Calorie Commando,” the 48-year-old allegedly tried to cut the fat from his life by recruiting some homeless dudes to eliminate his wife. Eek. Three homeless men known as Big Dave, Little Dave, and Shane spilled the beans about the murder plot to authorities after being arrested for loitering. They were just happy to be offered free pizza and a place to sleep during the undercover investigation.

5 Reasons To Fear Teenage Girls

Yesterday, 15-year-old Tylar Witt pleaded not guilty to murdering her mother, Joanne Witt, last June in Northern California. The teenage girl says she was insane when she drugged her mother and boyfriend, 20-year-old Steven Colver, and stabbed her mom 20 times before slitting her throat. Apparently, Joanne had brought Tylar’s diary to the sheriff’s department, using it as evidence to accuse Colver of statutory rape. [People]

It’s not often that a 15-year-old girl is on trial for murder. And I say there is something especially scary about that—maybe because I’ve been a teenage girl and remember how scary girl fights were and how brutal mean girls could be. After the jump, a few other murderous teenage girls. Keep reading »

Chocolate Penis Inserts Itself Into Murder Trial

While nothing about a murder case is funny, the idea of the Supreme Court discussing a chocolate penis and a pair of tits does kind of make me chuckle. So why would they be discussing such things? The court just heard an appeal for Georgia death row inmate Marcus Wellons, who was sentenced in 1993 for raping and killing a 15-year-old. Horrible. But, apparently, some strange things were going on behind the scenes of the trial—the judge not only took the jurors out to a restaurant, but after Wellons was convicted, the jurors sent the judge, a woman, the aforementioned choco-c**k. They sent the choco-boobs to the chief bailiff on the case. Wellons’ lawyers said that someone needs to investigate what went on outside of the court room to make these gifts even semi-appropriate. Since Wellons is black, the lawyers think the gifts could be “evidence of the jury’s racial bias.” The Supreme Court agreed and sent the case back to the lower courts for reopening. Who knew chocolate genitalia could have such an impact? Something to think about at your next bachelorette party. [Newser, LA Times] Keep reading »

What’s So Darn Funny About A Brutal Murder?


We’ve all had a giggle fit at an inappropriate moment before, but sometimes it’s just dead wrong. I’m totally miffed by this video of a news anchor seriously losing her s**t as she reports on the case of Stephen Grant, a 37-year-old Michigan man who was convicted of murdering his wife, Tara Lynn Grant. But this is not your run-of-the-mill murder case. It’s completely psychotic. Grant dismembered his wife, chopped up her body, and deposited her bits and pieces in a nearby park. After maintaining his innocence for a while, Grant went on the lam and was finally captured with a Charles Manson-esque look in the eyes, in Michigan’s snowy Wilderness State Park. He was rushed to a hospital with frostbite and hypothermia, but once he was released, he made a graphic confession and was arraigned on Tuesday. OK, I am totally creeped out. Can anyone tell me why this news anchor can’t stop laughing? What am I missing? Did someone fart? I’m sure Tara Lynn Grant’s family loved this clip. [Fox News, Funny or Die] Keep reading »

The FBI Investigated Anna Nicole Smith For Murder-For-Hire

Anna Nicole Smith was a lot of things, but she wasn’t, as far as the FBI is concerned, a murderer. It was recently divulged that, beginning in 2000, the FBI started investigating Smith after they kept hearing word that she was trying to off her dead husband’s son, E. Pierce Marshall. The two were in a drawn-out legal battle over the dead dude’s estate, which was worth about $550 million in 1992. Smith’s hubby was 89 when they got married and she was 26. He died about a year after the wedding. Sketchy, yes, but in the end, the FBI decided there was “insufficient evidence” against Anna. But they did find out a few head-scratching things … Keep reading »
