Men Gone Bad

Man Hits Son, Stabs Wife to Death When She Objects

The incident started when [John Leo] Davis got angry at one of the kids for playing video games and hit them in the face, court records show. The child told Michele [Davis], who reportedly confronted her husband and an argument ensued.

The children saw Davis wield a knife and chase his 35-year-old wife from the kitchen to the front door where police later found her in a pool of blood, records show.

Kutis said police responded to a call regarding a family fight at approximately 6:15 p.m. at the home near Lower Buckeye Road and Cotton Lane.

Michele was transported to a hospital where she was pronounced dead, Kutis said.

In 2008, police arrested Davis in Utah on suspicion of assault against Michele and child abuse, court records show. He was also reportedly arrested in 2006 and twice in the 1990s on suspicion of battery against a spouse.

The kids were immediately removed form the home at 168th Drive and Watkins Street and were being cared for Friday morning by relatives, said Lisa Kutis, a Goodyear police spokeswoman.

Three of the seven children – ages 3, 5 and 9 – belong to the couple, according to Kutis. Two children – ages 11 and 15 – belong to Michele only. Two others – ages 12 and 14 – belong to Davis.

A 16-year-old child, who was not at home when the incident occurred, also belongs to Davis, Kutis said.

Officer Gone Bad?: Rookie Cop Gone Missing after Fatal Shooitng

Henry Solis was off-duty on Friday morning when gunfire killed 23-year-old Salome Rodriguez, Jr. in Pomona, 30 miles east of Los Angeles, the Pomona Police Department said in a statement on Sunday.

A 27-year-old probationary officer assigned to the Devonshire Division in the San Fernando Valley, Solis later failed to show up for work on Saturday following the shooting, and his car was found on Sunday abandoned near the scene.

“Solis’ whereabouts is unknown, and we have reason to believe that he knows the police are looking to talk with him,” the statement said.

A preliminary investigation found that Rodriguez and another man “were engaged in a physical altercation” just before the shooting,” the police said in the statement. “It is unknown if the suspect and the victim knew each other.”

“My mom and dad have been shot”: Man Kills 7 in Small-Town Shooting Spree

Around 10:15 p.m. Thursday, a 15-year-old girl, wearing only a nightgown and no shoes in near-zero temperatures and with cuts on her legs from running through thickets and hardened snow, pounded on a neighbor’s door.

“She was crying so hard,” the neighbor, who declined to be identified out of concern for his safety, said. “I finally got out of her, ‘My mom and dad have been shot.'”

The girl called 911 from the neighbor’s home. Sigman said that as officers responded to that call, they received word of another shooting.

The victims at both addresses were related to each other, and to Aldridge. Authorities identified them as two couples, Garold Dee Aldridge, 52, and his wife, Julie Ann, 47; and Harold Wayne Aldridge, 50, and his wife, Janell Arlisa, 48. Both men were cousins of Joseph Aldridge, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Jeff Kinder.

At some point over the next few hours, Joseph Aldridge killed two more men and another woman at two different locations, Sigman said, and injured another woman. Names of those victims, and details about the woman’s injuries, were not released.

The case took another strange twist when authorities went to the home that Joseph Aldridge shared with his 74-year-old mother, Alice. She was found dead at the home, but apparently of natural causes, authorities said. An autopsy was planned to determine if her death was related to the shooting spree.

She had been under a doctor’s care and appeared to have been dead at least 24 hours, Texas County Coroner Tom Whittaker told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Whittaker speculated that the son “came home and found her deceased and then for whatever reason went on a rampage and started killing people.”

Sigman said many of the residents of Tyrone are Aldridges….

Around 5:30 a.m. Friday, in neighboring Shannon County, some 25 miles from Tyrone, Joseph Aldridge was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted wound inside a GMC pickup. Sigman said the truck was running and in the middle of a two-lane highway.

Around town, Aldridge was described as a recluse, and it was unclear what, if anything, he did for a living.

Father Stabs Transgender Daughter to Death, Calls 911 about “son…dying” on Porch

And then the family calls her “Brian” in the obituary.

Ohio man has been charged with murder after police said that he stabbed his transgender daughter to death during an altercation.

In a statement on Sunday, Trans Ohio said that it was “saddened to learn of the murder of Bri Golec, a 22yr old trans woman who resided in Akron, Ohio.”

But as the Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents blog noted, nearly every local media outlet had described the killing by referring to Bri Golec as the 22-year-old “son” of Kevin Golec.

According to Cleveland.com, Akron police said Kevin Golec lied to 911 dispatchers when he called officers to his home at around 10 p.m. on Friday.

“Oh my God, are you guys for real man?” Kevin Golec asks the dispatcher a 911 recording. “This is like the fourth f*cking time I’ve tried to call 9-1-1.”

The father went on to explain that his “son is dying” on his front porch.

“They attacked us, they came into our house,” he says. “I don’t know who did. A bunch of them came in, and attack us in our house f*cking — just bring and ambulance! Because I think he’s dead!”

“He’s in to a cult and all this sh*t,” the father continues. “These guys came in. I fought them off. They got him. They got me.”

When detectives arrived, however, they found that Kevin Golec had stabbed his daughter to death. Bri Golec was pronounced dead at the scene.

Kevin Golec was charged with murder and felony domestic violence.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Kevin Golec was referring to the transgender support group Trans Ohio when he said that his Bri Golec belonged to a “cult.”

45-Year-Old Man Flirts with Teen on Bus by Masturbating

The 17-year-old John Ehret High School student told investigators she rode the same public bus from Terrytown to school in Marrero each morning. She had spotted [Leroy] Dillon [45] — also a regular — staring at her on several different occasions, an arrest report said.

The girl told Sheriff’s Office investigators the behavior creeped her out, the report said.

On Jan. 21, Dillon tried to make his move and spark up a conversation with the girl. But instead of sticking to current events, the girl said he pulled out his penis and started to masturbate while staring at her, the arrest report said.

The girl told investigators she refused to look at Dillon until he exited the bus at his usual stop, Barataria Boulevard and the Lafitte Larose Highway in Marrero, according to an incident report. She told her mother about the encounter when she got home from school. 

The girl’s mother called the Sheriff’s Office. Detectives spoke with a representative from Jefferson Transit who helped them obtain surveillance video footage from the bus which they used to identify Dillon as the suspect, the report said.

Authorities arrested him the next day on the bus at Stumpf Boulevard and West Bank Expressway in Gretna, Fortunato said. During questioning, Dillon admitted taking out his genitals and shaking them at the victim, an arrest report said.

Dillon told detectives he thought that would get the girl to like him, the report said.

12-Year Old Survives Family Murder-Suicide, Calls 911

In the quiet of a pre-dawn Saturday on a dead-end street, a father came home and shot his family in their heads, leaving women in three generations dead and a wounded 12-year-old girl calling 911, police said.

“What I did, I cannot come back from,” Jonathon Walker told his brother by phone soon afterward, police said. And Walker did not come back – police said he killed himself in his car on a desolate street a few miles away, ending a burst of violence that stunned relatives who said the family hadn’t shown signs of trouble.

The 34-year-old security guard had killed his 7-year-old daughter, Kayla Walker; his 31-year-old girlfriend, Shantai Hale; and Hale’s mother, Viola Warren, 62. His and Hale’s older daughter, whom a relative identified as Christina Walker, was hospitalized in stable condition, police said.

The bloody scene unfolded suddenly and quickly – Walker showed up to the home at 5:38 a.m., and his 12-year-old daughter called 911 a few minutes afterward to report that her father had shot the family, Boyce said. When officers arrived three minutes later, Walker was gone.

They searched for his SUV and found it within hours, with Walker’s body and a .45-caliber gun inside, Boyce said.

The victims were found on the home’s floor, he said.

Rapist Gets the Shit Kicked out of Him—by His Nephew

Rusty’s not saying he approves but…

William L. Mattson, 52, of Conway, was arrested by Conway police on charges of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree in the reported rape of his nephew’s girlfriend.

William L. Mattson, 52, of Conway, was arrested by Conway police on charges of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree in the reported rape of his nephew’s girlfriend.

A police report shows that the nephew had brought his girlfriend to his father’s house after the two had attended a New Year’s party. The nephew left and he told police he returned to hear moaning from outside the door of the room he shares with his girlfriend.

He told police he kicked the door down and found his uncle, Mattson, who also lives in the house, on top of his girlfriend. He claims he drove his uncle from the home, striking him repeatedly.

While the nephew was giving his statement to police, the uncle returned to the home and told police his nephew had dropped the girl off and that he and the girl were drinking together. Mattson told police they began to hug and kiss while the girl was naked under a blanket, but that he was fully clothed. It’s then his nephew returned and struck him repeatedly, the report says.

Police spoke to the girl, who said nothing was consensual. Mattson was then placed under arrest.

“He just drove off”: Man Throws 5-Year-Old Daughter off Bridge, Kills Her

A Florida man driving toward a bridge over Tampa Bay pulled his car over early Thursday, took his 5-year-old daughter from the back seat, pressed her head to his chest, and tossed her over the rail, according to police in St. Petersburg.

John Nicholas Jonchuck, 25, faces first-degree murder charges. His daughter, Phoebe, fell about 60 feet over the Sunshine Skyway bridge into the bay just after midnight, St. Petersburg police Chief Anthony Holloway said at a news conference.

An officer heading home after his shift saw Jonchuck’s vehicle speed past at nearly 100 mph, Holloway said. The officer prepared to pull the PT Cruiser over, but by the time he caught up with it, Jonchuck had pulled over on the side of the road.

Holloway said Jonchuck got out and started toward the officer, who pulled his weapon. But Jonchuck went around to the passenger side of the car and got the child out.

The officer “thought he heard the child scream, but he wasn’t sure,” Holloway said. The officer then saw the man throw the child over, into the strong bay current.

Her body was recovered about a mile from the bridge and hour and a half later. Rescue crews tried to revive her, but she was pronounced dead at 2:44 a.m.

Back on the road, officers said Jonchuck got back in the car and headed south, crossing the bridge on Interstate 275.

“The suspect drove off,” Holloway said. “He just drove off.”

Two other officers who were near the bridge started following Jonchuck into neighboring Manatee County.

Holloway said Jonchuck turned his blinker on and stopped before starting again and driving toward deputies. He then headed the wrong way on the interstate, going back toward the bridge. Deputies put out traffic spikes to stop the vehicle.

Jonchuck was arrested and brought back to St. Petersburg for questioning. He’s being held without bond on the murder charge.

Authorities said Jonchuck filed a domestic violence report against the child’s mother last month, but it wasn’t granted. He had custody of the child, and they lived with his father in Tampa. Authorities didn’t release information about the girl’s mother.

Man Kills Father over $100 (or $200) Reduction in His Weekly Allowance

Detectives believe the elder Gilbert was killed by his son, who then left the murder weapon — a .40 caliber Glock 22 — in the bedroom to make it look like a suicide.

“The gun was resting on his chest with his left hand covering it,” NYPD Chief of Investigations Robert Boyce said at a press conference. He described it as a “staged crime scene.”

Police said the son entered his parents’ Beekman Place home Sunday afternoon and asked his mother to get him a sandwich.

Boyce said that the mother “had a bad feeling” after leaving the two men alone together and decided to return to the apartment, but when she came back she found her husband shot in the head in his bedroom.

Investigators told ABC News that the father recently discussed no longer paying his son’s rent. They also say he discussed reducing his weekly allowance from $400 per week to $300.

“[Gilbert Sr.] had been giving him $2,400 a month for rent and $600 for spending money, and he was cutting [the spending money] to $400… They had argued about it before.”

Off-Duty Cop Kills Son, Who Wanted to Be a Cop, on Christmas Eve

An off-duty PBSO deputy shot and killed one of his own relatives on Christmas Eve, but police are mum on details, releasing only minimum info about the victim — a 21-year-old named Khamis Shatara, who apparently wanted to be a cop.

The shooting happened in Delray Beach, and the deputy has been detained by that city’s police department, reported WPTV. For two days after the shooting, the name of the deputy who took his own relative’s life was not released by police or the local TV news station, which says it’s withholding it out of respect for the family. That kind of courtesy is not usually given to regular, nonpolice folks arrested for crimes, but hey — it’s Christmas.

However, late Friday afternoon, Sgt. Nicole Guerriero confirmed to New Times that the name of the deputy who killed his son is Shatara K. Shatara.

As for the victim, Khamis Shatara appears to have been a criminal justice major at Palm Beach State College who idolized police.
