The author’s description: Divine Justice: The Dianne Alexander Story is inspired by an actual event. It gives in depth details about my encounter with The Southwest Louisiana Serial Killer “Derrick Todd Lee.” But most of all, the book speaks about divine interventions from the beginning to the end of my horrible ordeal. I pray that this book will help you to see that God is a God of “Love and Forgiveness.”
A San Diego man was convicted of murdering his wealthy boyfriend by stabbing him 24 times and dumping him off a cliff, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
David Meza, 26, brought his boyfriend Jake Merendino, 51, to the side of a road in Mexico in 2015 and repeatedly stabbed him, gutted him, and slashed his neck, prosecutors said. The older man was then dropped off the side of a cliff.
Prosecutors argued that Meza killed his boyfriend in order to inherit about $3.27 million in property, including a $273,000 ocean condo that Merendino had just purchased the day before.
Meza and Merendino met in 2013 after Meza posted an online ad saying that he was straight but did “gay things” for money. The two began a relationship in which Meza received money and expensive gifts from Merendino.
But, unbeknownst to Merendino, Meza had a girlfriend, Taylor Langston, who would became his fiancée. He
Michigan police say they have now established a link between four seperate shootings that occurred on I-94 and I-96 near Detroit last week. A Michigan State Police spokesperson now says that the “four shootings are one single incident.”
According to The Huffington Post, a Southfield woman’s vehicle was struck by a bullet on December 7 while driving on I-94. On Monday, the highway was closed by police as they looked for evidence. It’s unclear if anything was discovered.
The other shootings also occurred on December 7 in the early morning. Only one person was injured after a bullet struck his leg. The driver said he was heading westbound when a car pulled up near him and opened fire. Other cars were struck by bullets reportedly coming from a silver Impala. There is no known relation between the victims. No other shootings occurred following the incidents on the 7th.

A woman is now facing murder charges after allegedly killing her husband, dismembering his body and living with the remains for over five months.
Marcia Eubank, 49, was arrested Saturday for allegedly shooting her 54-year-old husband Howard Eubank in the back and covered up the murder by lying to his employer and to their family. Meanwhile, she hid his body parts in the house, which she continued to inhabit as his remains deteriorated. Authorities have since tentatively confirmed the body parts found in the home belong to Howard Eubank.
“Due to the decomposition and condition of the body, this process will take additional time,” Gary Guenther, chief investigator for the Medical Examiner’s Office, told New York Post.
Howard Eubank was allegedly killed in June, but it wasn’t until December that the couple’s son called the police after discovering maggots and a foul smell inside the family home.
Marcia Eubank is now being
Yesterday, Akayed Ullah was apprehended in relation to yesterday’s terroristic attack at the Port Authority bus station. Now, Ullah’s family is claiming they were mistreated by the police investigating the situation.
“We are heartbroken by this attack on our city today and by the allegations being made against our family,” said the family in a statement issued through the Council on American-Islamic Relations of New York (CAIR-NY), according to The Washington Post.
The statement went on to detail the ways the Ullah family was interrogated by the police, characterizing the situation as an outrage.
“Today we have seen our children, as young as 4 years old, held out in the cold, detained as their parents were questioned … One teenage relative was pulled out of high school classes and interrogated without a lawyer, without his parents. These are not the actions that we expect from our justice system,” the statement continues.
Beyond the statement, Albert Fox Cahn,
A female passenger on a flight from Portland, Oregon to Sacramento, California had a violent mid-air meltdown Saturday after she was caught smoking in the airplane’s lavatory. On cellphone video shot by another passenger, 24-year-old Valerie Curbelo is seen screaming at a flight attendant, “I swear, if you don’t f***ing land, I will f***ing kill everybody on this f***ing plane! I will kill everybody on this f***ing plane! I will! I will!”
Now in custody and being held at the Sacramento County Jail, Curbelo has no explanation for her profanity-laden threatening outbust. Speaking to reporter Marc Thompson of Sacrenento’s CBS13, she says “I don’t know,” when asked why she threatened to kill her fellow airline passengers. “It was not me. It was not me.”
According to friends, Curbelo had been suffering from mental health issues. In an interview with Portland’s KOIN 6 News, an acquaintance who did not
On Friday, police in Broward County, Florida released footage of intense, violent moments that lead up to a fatal police shooting. In the video, 42-year-old Jean Pedro Pierre can be seen kicking, and even dragging, Deputy Sean Youngward outside a condominium.
The officer was responding to a disturbance at the residential building when the violence broke out. Pierre can be seen dragging Youngward by his leg, while Youngward calls for backup.
The deputy tried to subdue the suspect by tasing him, but the attempt was in vain. Then, another deputy, Steven Briggs, shows up on the scene to help.
“Tase him, tase him; don’t shoot him,” a concerned citizen yelled at Briggs. Just like Youngward, Briggs was unsuccessful in his tasing attempt.
“Let it go, bro. They’re gonna shoot you, man,” a bystander yells at Pierre, who responded by letting go of Youngward only to charge at Briggs.
Pierre was then shot three times,
A newlywed was attacked by a shark during her Caribbean honeymoon and the whole incident was caught on camera.
“I felt a whoosh of water, something clamped down on my arm and I assumed my husband was playing a prank on me,” Sarah Illig told the Daily Mail.
Illig was swimming with the sharks, which apparently was a luxury that the resort that she was staying at with her hubby were offered. The bride said she is lucky to still have her arm. She was injured but in the end, the bite didn’t require stitches. Her husband Evan Carroll caught the incident on camera.
In the video, Illig is seen recoiling in pain after being bitten.
“Less than a second later I realized how much it hurt and looked past where my goggles were blocking my side vision to see the shark [bigger than myself]
It was one of the most brutal mass slayings in the Bay area. In 2012, a family of five was found bludgeoned to death with a hammer inside their San Francisco home. On Monday, the man responsible for the murders was found guilty. After six days of deliberations, a jury found Binh Thai Luc, 41, guilty on all five counts of murder, the Associated Press reports.
“This was a very gruesome, brutal murder, and we’re pleased we’re getting some accountability for the family and for the community,” District Attorney George Gascón told SF Gate.
Plumber Luc murdered husband and wife Hua Shun Lei, 65 and Wan Yi Wu, 62 and two of their children Ying Xue Lei, 37 and Vincent Lei, 32. The fifth victim, Chia Huei Chu, 30, was Vincent’s wife. Tragically, Vincent’s 12-year-old niece was the one who found all five bodies. The San Francisco Chronicle reports
On Wednesday, a man from Illinois was convicted of sexually assaulting a 90-year-old with dementia. Dontrell Netter, 24, now faces up to six decades behind bars for the 2015 incident.
According to Fox News, the victim was a care home patient. Shockingly, a certified nurse at the home invited Netter, and two other men, to assault her. That nurse has been identified as Channing Butler. He and the other men have pleaded guilty to various charges related to the disturbing incident, and are now serving prison sentences. Butler was given 14 years behind bars.
Netter has denied assaulting the patient. Instead, during his trial, he claimed he was tricked into visiting the home, the Champaign News-Gazette reports. But the jury didn’t buy it and instead found him guilty. Netter will be sentenced in January.
Butler had photographs of a man sexually assaulting the woman. He admitted to taking the photograph,
A woman has admitted to her role in the violent murder of a young North Dakota mother. According to People, 38-year-old Brooke Crews of Fargo confessed to killing 22-year-old Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind and stealing her baby.
LaFontaine-Greywind was reportedly murdered in August and her baby was ripped from her womb. At her funeral in September, her boyfriend, Ashton Matheny, brought the infant who survived. “It was wonderful that [the baby] Haisley Jo was able to spend those moments along with her family, as well,” the family spokeswoman said.
On August 19, LaFontaine-Greywind disappeared from her apartment while eight months pregnant. She told her family she was going to help Crews (seen below) with a sewing project but never returned.
On August 27, her body was found in plastic wrap in the Red River. The medical examiner called her cause of death “homicidal violence.” No further details on the manner of death or how the baby was
