So! How was your holiday family get-together? Was it awkward? Probably! But on the upside, your crazy-ass boyfriend probably didn’t drive 15 hours in order to murder your family. So there’s that!
This Christmas Eve, 23 year-old Preston Pollard spent 15 hours driving from Texas to Florida to see his 18 year-old girlfriend, after he found out that she would not be coming to Texas to spend the holiday with him. This would have been a lovely grand romantic gesture, had he not showed up at her door and opened fire on her father and stepmother, leaving her father dead and her stepmother in critical condition. He then drove off into the night and turned the gun on himself before police could catch up to him. Keep reading »

Yesterday, we showed you two amazing interviews with Charles Ramsey, the man credited with helping to save three women (who had disappeared a decade earlier) from his neighbor’s home. The unguarded and inadvertently hilarious interviews with Ramsey — who absolutely exemplifies why if you see something, you should say something — has somewhat distracted from the very serious news story, that these three women had been held captive for a decade, and that their discovery, release and relative good health considering the circumstances is nothing short of a miracle.

The Castro brothers are expected to be formally charged today. Keep reading »
Hawaii’s Andrea Flegle was perturbed by the fact that the puppy she’d purchased for her daughter kept trying to sniff her daughter’s crotch. Not bothering to use common sense, or understand animals, or realize that this is basically a Thing That Dogs Do, Flegle did the only logical thing in her mind and slit the dog’s throat. After killing the dog for, let me remind you, sniffing her daughter’s crotch, Flegle called 911 to report that the animal was dead. She admitted that she killed the dog, and offered the crotch-sniffing as a plausible excuse.
“I tell to stop but not listen. I cannot control. I lost my temper, so I grabbed the dog and cut its throat,” read the 911 call transcript.
Flegle, who lives in Hawaii, was charged with animal cruelty in the third degree, which is a class C felony. If convicted, she could spend up to five years in prison. [Huffington Post]
Congratulations Andrea Flegle. In addition to needlessly and cruelly murdering an animal, you’ve also guaranteed your daughter hours and hours of therapy. News report of the incident after the jump. Keep reading »
