Teens Gone Bad

Teen Kills Brother, Wounds Another over Food

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office received a call about the shooting at 6:19 p.m. local time in the city of Hudson, some 45 miles (72 km) north of Tampa, the office said in a statement.

The three brothers were squabbling over dinner, the statement said, when the 13-year-old grabbed a handgun and shot his two brothers before killing himself. The children were home alone at the time.

The older brother was taken to a hospital and his injuries were not considered life-threatening, the statement said. The names of the children were not released by authorities.

The Times said that the children’s mother was at work and a fourth son, who is 18-years-old, was not at the house.

Further details were not immediately available.

Baptized in December, Teen Kills Family, Dies after Police Chase and Shootout

Jason C. Hendrix, 16, is believed to have shot and killed his mother, father and sister after a dispute with his parents over computer use before driving from Corbin to the East Coast, where he was killed in a shootout with police in Maryland, Corbin police Chief David Campbell said Sunday.

Baltimore County Police in Maryland confirmed Sunday that it was Hendrix who was shot and killed Saturday.

Hendrix had a 9mm semiautomatic handgun, two .38-caliber pistols, a double-barreled shotgun and backpack “completely full of ammo,” Campbell said in an interview.

Hendrix, a high school Junior ROTC student and active church member, apparently went to a church youth meeting Wednesday night after his family had been slain, Campbell said.

“At a church youth meeting he had told them he had found his dad’s guns,” Campbell said. “He didn’t say if he had them in the vehicle or not.”

Kevin and Sarah Hendrix and daughter Grace were found dead at their Forest Circle Drive home in Corbin on Saturday afternoon.

“All three were shot in the head at least twice,” Campbell said. “A pillow was used to try to muffle the gunshot used on all three individuals. The pillows were still on their faces.”

Police think the victims were gunned down late Wednesday afternoon, Campbell said. The father still had on his sport coat and tie from work. The mother was ambushed as she stepped into the kitchen from the garage after arriving home from work.

Jason Hendrix took his mother’s SUV, Campbell said. Police were uncertain why he chose to drive to Maryland.

The teen “was mad at his parents over the usage of his computer. They had taken his computer rights away,” Campbell told the Herald-Leader.

Drew Mahan, founding pastor of Forward Community Church, which the family attended, said officers questioned him extensively about Jason on Saturday night after discovering the bodies. He described Jason Hendrix as a faithful member of his three-year-old church, which held services at a movie theater.

Hendrix would arrive every Sunday at 7 a.m. to help set up the church’s equipment and was baptized in December.

15-Year Old Shoots Brother Dead, 11-Year-Old Sister “assisted”

Misty “Ariel” Renee Kornegay and her 11-year-old sister Nicole were arrested Monday night and are charged in the death of their 16-year-old brother.

Their parents, Keith and Misty, were also arrested on child neglect charges.

The Sheriff’s Office said 15-year-old Misty “Ariel” Renee Kornegay admitted she shot her 16-year-old brother, then walked away from the home with her 11-year-old sister, Nicole, leaving their 3-year-old sister at home.

Deputies said the shooting happened about 9:30 p.m. at 1205 Sophie Drive in the north part of the county, not far from White Springs.

White Springs police saw the girls walking and stopped them. When officers learned of the homicide, they called the Sheriff’s Office to the scene. Deputies found the brother dead on the living room floor from a single gunshot.

Investigators said the parents were out of town and Ariel Kornegay (pictured left with Nicole, right) retrieved the handgun used in the shooting from the parents’ bedroom. They have not revealed a motive.

After the parents, Keith Kornegay, 37, and 33-year-old Misty Kornegay, returned to town, they were questioned by investigators and were arrested on child neglect charges, accused of failing to properly supervise the children.

Columbia County, which didn’t have a single murder last year, was rocked by the murder.

Sheriff’s office deputies were dispatched to the Kornegay’s White Springs home, whereupon they found the body of the girl’s 16-year-old brother, Damien Kornegay, sprawled out on the living room floor. He had been shot one time and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

“Based on the preliminary investigation, it is believed that earlier in the evening the 15-year-old sister of the deceased retrieved a handgun from their parents’ bedroom and used it to shoot her brother,” said Smith.

Nicole Kornegay’s role in the shooting remains unclear. Smith would only say that she “assisted her 15-year-old sister” in the commission of the crime.

19-Year Old Kills, Dumps 5-Year-Old Cousin, Reports Him Kidnapped

Tiffany VanAlstyne’s bogus 911 call on Thursday afternoon set off a search for Kenneth White that lasted into the night, authorities said. A search dog picked up a scent at about 9 p.m., and Kenneth’s body was found in a culvert, covered with snow VanAlstyne used in a bid to hide the crime, Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple said.

VanAlstyne’s parents have been the legal guardians of Kenneth, his twin sister Cheyenne, and 4-year-old sister Christine since September, and the children had lived in the home for more than a year. Apple said he did not believe the other children were in the room where White was attacked.

VanAlstyne strangled the boy and tossed his body “like a piece of trash” over a guard rail along a rural two-lane road about 40 yards from the trailer home in the town of Berne sometime before making the 911 call just after 1 p.m. Thursday, Apple said. The child had also suffered a blow to the head.

The 911 call touched off a search that included an Amber Alert describing the kidnappers as two men, clad all in black and driving a black pickup truck.

But Apple said the interrogation of VanAlstyne and others began to yield contradictions that threw the abduction story into doubt.

“Things did not start to add up,” he said, and investigators got a warrant to return to the home, about 23 miles southeast of Albany.

The children’s mother lives in Amsterdam, west of Albany, and the father in Massachusetts. Authorities would not say why the children had been place in the care of their aunt, Brenda VanAlstyne.

Teen Mother Kills Man over PS4, 16-Month Old in Tow

The alleged shooter in the Friday night incident is a 16-year-old girl whose 16-month-old baby was only feet away at the time of the robbery and shooting, according to Sandy Springs police Sgt. Ron Momon.

Daniel John Zeitz, 28, of Roswell, had listed a PS4 gaming system for sale on Craigslist, and about 9:30 p.m., went to the parking lot of an apartment on Treelodge Parkway to meet a potential buyer, Momon said.

There, he met 20-year-old Nathaniel Vivian and a 16-year-old girl, whose name has not been released.

Momon said the pair tried to rob Zeitz of the PS4, and Vivian, who was in the driver’s seat of a car, struggled with Zeitz, who was standing outside the car, for the gaming system.

During the struggle, the girl fired a shot from a .25 caliber handgun, and the bullet passed through Vivian’s hand and struck Zeitz in the side of his chest, killing him.

…“Detectives also learned that the juvenile’s infant child, approximately 16 months, was in the back seat of the car during the robbery and shooting,” he said.

Police sources told local media the 16-year-old suspect had returned to her home, where she had been living alone since April, with the victim on Saturday night.

The suspect, who cannot be named as she is a minor, had then struck the back of Matsuo’s head with a tool and strangled her with a rope in her home.

Matsuo’s body was found with her head and left hand severed. Her belly was cut open.

Police sources said they found a hammer and saw at the suspect’s home.

…She also appeared to have posted a number of messages, which include photographs of a bloody hand, on an internet bulletin board.

Police are now investigating these messages which began to emerge around two hours after Matsuo was thought to have died.

The suspect’s mother had died of cancer last year and her father had recently remarried, local media said. According to acquaintances, she was preparing to study abroad.

Yikes!

Father Beats the Shit out of Son’s Attacker, No Charges to Be Filed

What cop would arrest this father? What jury would convict this father? At the story link below, you can see this boy’s busted-up face.

A Florida police chief has caused a media stir by saying he is looking the other way after a father severely beat a man he caught sexually assaulting his 11-year-old son.

The father called Daytona Beach police on Friday to report he had interrupted his son being assaulted, and could be heard telling a dispatcher he left the attacker “nice and knocked out” and “in a puddle of blood” on the floor.

Raymond Frolander, 18, faces a felony sexual battery charge on a victim under 12-years-old, according to a police charging affidavit. The father had not been charged in the beating.

“We observed the defendant laying motionless on the living room floor with several knots on his face and bleeding from his mouth,” police wrote in the affidavit.

Daytona Beach Police Chief Michael Chitwood, asked by a local CNN affiliate whether he had any issue with the father’s actions, said: “Not as a police chief and not as a father.”

Media photos show pictures of Frolander severely beaten, with bloodied lips, bruises around his swollen eyes, and scratches on his neck.

Bullied 14-Year Old Stabs Ex-Friend to Death in Front of Middle School

The 14-year-old suspect struck back after incessant mental and physical torment from his middle-school peers, including Crump, led to a botched May suicide try with a belt, neighbors said.

His parents’ desperate attempts to win their son a “safety transfer” from Intermediate School 117 failed — as did his dad’s last-ditch plea to the principal on the night before the stabbing.

When Crump began throwing unprovoked punches at Estevez, the latest in an unrelenting avalanche of abuse, the eighth-grader finally snapped Wednesday afternoon.

…Fellow student Raven Spencer, who was standing 3 feet away from the stabbing, said Estevez pulled a 12-inch blade as he stood on the sidewalk outside the Bronx school.

Crump was fatally gashed in the chest before Estevez was grabbed by school safety agents.

“The kid kept hitting me with his fist, so I kept stabbing him four or five times,” a Bronx prosecutor quoted Estevez as telling police.

…Estevez’s tormentors mocked him with homophobic taunts, hacked away his hair, pushed him down stairs and scrawled crude messages on his apartment door, said another neighbor.

“They would say his mama’s a crackhead,” said Erica Jones, 33. “They would say, ‘You’re stupid, you should just kill yourself.’ If he didn’t have that knife, he would have been dead.”

A building employee said the assailants urinated on the family’s apartment door at least a half-dozen times.

…“At one point, Timothy and Noel, they were best friends,” said family friend Milagros Arroyo.

The friendship soon crumbled as Estevez went from pal to pariah. Neighbors said the teen, who feared for his life, tried to hang himself in a closet last month.

…Arroyo said the boy’s mother told her that he worried the bullies were going to kill him.

“They would call the apartment, they would come to the apartment, write on the door. They would constantly harass him,” Arroyo recounted.

Teen Beats, Strangles, Drags Girlfriend over “snarky remarks to things he was saying”

Her condition has been upgraded.

Michael Hutton is accused of creating serious internal damage to Connaway’s brain. Connaway’s Grandfather, Jerry Strickland, said she needed brain surgery after the assault.

Connaway was in critical condition, but has since been upgraded to fair as of Wednesday.

“Hannah opened her eyes today and was hoarsely talking to Sunny and I,” Claudene Williams, friend of Connaway and witness of the assault said. She was “telling us she loves and that she is happy to see us. She seems a bit confused but is flashing us bright smiles. The left side of her body is still not moving like the doctors would like, but it will get there hopefully.”

Michael Hutton, 18, has been charged with attempted first degree murder after being accused of severely beating his girlfriend Friday night. Hutton was in court Tuesday and according to District Attorney Ben David, the teen is accused of beating 17-year-old Hannah Connaway in her head and neck.

According to the assistant district attorney, the incident happened at Hutton’s parent’s house while they were out of town. The ADA said Connaway and Hutton got into a fight over some texts. Connaway’s friend, Claudene Williams, said she was with the couple at the time of the altercation. She said Hutton was angry because of some tangled fishing lines.

“He was angry because he couldn’t untangle fishing lines,” explained Williams. “He was blaming her (Hannah) for some things like having snarky remarks to things he was saying, and then it just escalated and kept on going.”

The fight reportedly took place inside and outside of the house before ending in the front yard. Williams said Hutton had beaten, strangled, and dragged Connaway across the yard.

“I keep on hearing her screaming and I keep on hearing all the sounds and it’s just awful. I ran around the front door. I tried to get in. All the doors were locked. It was just awful,” Williams said.

At his court case Tuesday, Hutton was charged with attempted murder and is facing life without parole. He was taken back into custody immediately following the hearing.

He is also facing close to 30 years for felony assault by strangulation and first degree kidnapping, felony assault to inflict serious injury, misdemeanor assault on a female, and a misdemeanor drug charge.

Montgomery Register was one onlooker in the courtroom Tuesday. Register said she used to date Michael Hutton.

“There’s a lot that went on in the five and a half years that we did date,” said Register.

“He’s not a good guy. I’ve forgiven him. I’ve forgiven him. Like I said, I’m a Christian 100 percent. I have no grudge against him or his family, but I feel for the people he put after me after I left, after I walked away.”
