“I don’t want to die, please don’t kill me”: Grandmother Stabs 7-Year-Old Grandson to Death

Mason Rhinehart and his brother were playing video games in their Killearn Lakes Plantation home Tuesday morning when their grandmother, Martha White, interrupted to say she had a surprise for them.

White, 63, who had been babysitting the boys, then took 6-year-old Mason into the bathroom and locked the door behind her, a probable cause affidavit said. Mason’s brother, age 8, heard him start to cry from behind the door and say, “I don’t want to die, please don’t kill me.”

The boy said he tried to get in the bathroom, but could not. He then called his father and hid, court documents said.

Within five minutes, first responders were on the scene and found Mason lying on the bathroom floor with multiple stab wounds to the chest, said Lt. James McQuaig, LCSO spokesman. Leon County Emergency Medical Services rushed him to the hospital, but Mason did not survive.

…Mason’s brother said he saw White leave the home with a bottle of wine but not before telling him she “had a surprise for him too,” court documents said. McQuaig said Mason’s brother was not injured in the incident.

Deputies identified White as a suspect when they found her covered in blood at the dead end of Valley Creek Drive, about a half-mile away from the boys’ parents’ home in the 7700 block of Bass Ridge Trail. White’s clothing was covered with blood, court documents said. She also had a bottle of wine and a Xanax.

…It is still too early in the investigation to identify a motive for the stabbing, McQuaig said. However, White told deputies she was “fed up.”

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.

Knife, Lubricant, Camera, Plastic Sheeting: Man Planned to Video Rape of 9-year-old

He actually planned multiple DVDs of himself raping children to sell at $1000 each.

WKMG-TV reported that Shawn Ryan Thomas had been under investigation since March, when officials were tipped off about Thomas downloading child pornography. He was charged with attempted premeditated homicide, possession of child pornography, and attempted sexual assault on a victim under 12 years of age.

The investigation escalated last week, when an informant reported that Thomas lured the girl, her father, and her grandfather into a vacant home in Longwood, a suburb of Orlando, on June 7. Thomas allegedly told the family he was a student making an independent film. However, the family left the residence after the girl’s grandfather became suspicious.

The Orlando Sentinel reported that the grandfather had been to the house, located less than a mile from Thomas’ residence, and saw a “for sale” sign outside. Police said the house had plastic sheeting on the floor in one room and a tripod set up in another room.

Thomas’ original plan was allegedly to draw the girl and her parents into the vacant home using the same pretense. From there, he planned to kill her father, then her mother, by slashing their throats with a knife before filming himself raping the girl.

He allegedly planned to kill the girl after completing the filming, then commit similar attacks against other families and selling a DVD of himself raping the children for $1,000. At the time of his arrest, Thomas reportedly had a bag in his possession containing a knife, lubricant, and a camera.

“This is everyday USA behind me”: Man Guns down 3 Daughters, Wife, Kills Himself

Neighbors in San Carlos Park didn’t hear the gunshots. It might have been hours or maybe days before anyone realized what had happened, if not for the 911 call about 2:25 a.m. from a Spanish-speaking man inside the home. By the time Lee County deputies arrived to the home at 17372 Phlox Drive, the 36-year-old man, his two daughters, their older sister and their 29-year-old mother were dead.

Lee Sheriff Mike Scott described the killings as murder-suicide, saying the father had left a note.

…The Sheriff’s Office would not release the names of the victims Sunday, saying the killings were part of an active investigation and there were relatives who still needed to be notified. Two family members identified the victims Sunday evening as Maria Antonia Navas, 29; Sonny Enrique “Quique” Medina, 36; Allison Navas, 10; Sophia Medina-Navas, 6; and Mia Medina-Navas, 2.

Scott said what happened Sunday was the single-largest mass killing he could recall in county history. The sheriff said there were no prior indications of trouble at the home, no history of reported domestic violence or child abuse. This, he said, was a “safe, nice home” with photographs and drawings on the refrigerator and toys scattered throughout.

“This is everyday USA behind me,” Scott said Sunday as he stood in front of the family’s home. “Something snapped, something went terribly wrong. And we’ll never know the answer to why.”

Inspired by Sermon, Woman Drowns Toddler, Poisons 10-Year Old

Kimberly Dawn Lucas was arrested and is being held at Palm Beach County Jail after she allegedly tried to poison both children Monday afternoon and allegedly drowned the girl in the bathtub.

Lucas and her longtime partner had raised the boy and girl since their birth.

On Wednesday, details emerged about a note left by Lucas that references a sermon she heard at Metropolitan Community Church on Sunday, the day before the death of the little girl.

According to the police report, police found a computer left on in the home where the murder of 2-year-old Elliana and the attempted murder of 10-year-old Ethan took place, with a message for whoever found it.

“In YOUR WORDS “WHEN YOU ARE LAYING IN BED AT NIGHT REMEMBER YOU FUCKING DID THIS TO YOURSELF!” the note says. “Lea’s sermon really, really touched me yesterday but God never told me to stop.
“Hell is what we (go) through on Earth. Enjoyed your life with possiblego out without us, he manage but give you finally what you what want because apparently over the past 20 years I was not able to. Love you Always Kimberly.”

…Police say the note left behind references the sermon given by Metropolitan Community Church Pastor Dr. Lea Brown.

“Her sermon covered Genesis 22, in which God asks Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac,” the police report says. “But at the last minute, God stops him from doing so.”

Dr. Brown confirmed to police that Lucas and Ethan had attended the church service the Sunday before the tragedy and also confirmed giving a sermon on Genesis 22.

“It’s what I was called to do,” Brown told CBS12. “There’s no way anyone could have predicted this.”

March 9 Fatal Car Crash: Linked to Below-the-Waist Nudity, Alcohol; Husband Jailed

According to a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office arrest affidavit, [Matthew P.] Notebaert [30] was driving east on Stallion Drive at 55 mph at 12:30 a.m. The dead-end dirt road has a speed limit of 30 mph and ends at a canal. Investigators determined the car steered slightly to the right before launching over the canal, but there was no braking.

The car was airborne for 30 feet, crashing into the far bank of the canal. Neither of the Notebaerts were wearing seatbelts and both were naked from the waist down, according to the affidavit. Amanda Notebaert’s head hit the dashboard and windshield, while Matthew Notebaert’s knees were crushed by the lower part of the dashboard. She died at the scene.

An investigator at the hospital reported that Notebaert smelled strongly of alcohol and was vomiting. The investigator overheard Notebaert telling someone on a phone call that he “was not paying attention and drove down the wrong road and they wound up in a canal and killed his wife.”

A search of the crashed vehicle turned up a flask with a whisky-like liquid inside. Toxicology results showed Notebaert had a blood-alcohol level of .135 to .163 percent. The legal limit is .08 percent. Results also returned a high level of active and metabolized THC, the intoxicating ingredient in marijuana.

Notebaert was jailed Wednesday on charges of DUI manslaughter, vehicular homicide and DUI property damage.

Deputies shot and killed a man who went on a violent rampage, stabbing a cat and breaking a window early Tuesday in a Brandon apartment complex, Hillsborough County sheriff’s officials said.

…Neighbors in the apartment complex began calling 911 about 5:30 a.m. to report Tyree carrying a large butcher knife and threatening people with a 20-pound barbell, said Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee.

…The knife that deputies said Tyree used to stab the cat lay in the road long after he was taken to the hospital. Its blade was stained with blood.

Deputies were looking for the cat, but had not been able to find it as of mid-day Tuesday.
