Dad Crashes Into Restaurant On Purpose, Killing Daughter And Other Family, Police Say

A North Carolina man drove into a restaurant on purpose over the weekend, killing two family members, police say.

Roger Self sat his family down for a Sunday afternoon meal at a restaurant in Bessemer City and then went outside. He got in his jeep, police say, and rammed it right into the restaurant, killing his daughter and daughter-in-law, and injuring other family members in the chaos, according to The Gaston Gazette.

Self, a prominent 62-year-old businessman, was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder on Sunday in the deaths of his daughter, Katelyn Self, a deputy in the Gaston County Sheriff’s Office, and his daughter-in-law Amanda Self, a nurse.

Amanda Self’s husband, Josh Self, a police officer, and the couple’s 13-year-old daughter were also injured, as well as Roger Self’s wife. The family was all at church earlier in the day, the Gazette said.

Broadway Actress Loses Unborn Baby Just Months After 4-Year-Old Daughter Dies In Crash

A Tony Award-winning actress who starred in the Broadway revival of “The King And I” has lost her unborn baby just months after her 4-year-old daughter was struck and killed in a Brooklyn crosswalk.

Ruthie Ann Miles, 35, and her husband Jonathan Blumenstein were expecting to have a baby girl this month, according to NBC 4 in New York.

“At the time of the crash Ruthie was pregnant and was severely injured. This past Friday Ruthie and Jonathan lost their baby, Sophia Rosemary Wong Blumenstein,” Ben Rubinowitz said in a statement issued Wednesday. “The pain suffered by Ruthie and Jonathan is nearly impossible to fathom. As you might imagine, they are overwhelmed by the sadness of the deaths of their children.”

Miles lost her daughter Abigail on March 5 while walking with a friend named Lauren Lew and Lew’s 1-year-old son Joshua. A 44-year-old woman with medical issues didn’t stop at a red

Michigan Man Fathered A Child With His 20-Year-Old Daughter, Police Say

It’s complicated all right.

A Michigan man is accused of sexually abusing his daughter — and fathering a son with her. Just weeks ago, he changed his Facebook relationship status to, “In a Complicated Relationship.” 

Gregory St. Andre, 37, is charged with two counts of third-degree criminal sexual assault, according to The Detroit News. St. Andre posted an initial bond of $5,000, but his bond was raised to $60,000 during a court appearance Monday. 

Prosecutors asked a judge to revoke St. Andre’s bond completely because his family said a no-contact order against him was useless. They said he’d been calling his daughter and her boyfriend and messaging them through social media. St. Andre changed his Facebook relationship status to “complicated” April 28, drawing dozens of disgusted comments from users. 

Prosecutors filed an emergency motion Monday to revoke his bond, according to WJBK Fox 2 in Detroit.

“She has a son by the defendant. What is she

Daughter Of Victims of Golden State Killer Faces Suspect Joseph DeAngelo For First Time

A woman whose mother and stepfather were allegedly bludgeoned to death in 1980 by the Golden State Killer faced the suspect for the first time in a Sacramento court Monday.

Jennifer Carole told ABC News that alleged serial killer Joseph DeAngelo “looked just like an old man.”

“From his orange Crocs to his orange outfit, his shoulders are sagging, he had whiskers on his face,” she said.

But as feeble as the 72-year-old DeAngelo appeared, Carole said she believes there is evil under his surface.

“He looked incredibly ordinary, which I think is the part that all of us are struggling with,” she said, referring to the families of other victims. “From the outside, he looks particularly ordinary and yet we know on the inside there’s a monster there.”

DeAngelo was arrested last month and has been charged with 12 murders across California from the 1970s and 1980s, including Charlene and Lyman Smith, Carole’s parents. 

DeAngelo, who

My Struggle To Find Peace As The Daughter Of A Serial Killer

Using the money from the sale of Suzan’s Scottsdale townhouse, Michael and Suzan went to Israel, India, France and the U.K. My mother waited until the pair were gone, and then we left too, trying to get lost in the urban sprawl of Southern California ― near my mother’s uncle, the only person who truly believed her when she said, “My ex and his new wife might kill us.” He was a former cop who believed frightened women.

Father Who Married Daughter Killed Her, Their Child, Adoptive Father And Himself: Cops

The North Carolina man accused of leaving his marriage for his biological daughter, who he later impregnated and married, is now suspected of murdering her, their baby and her adoptive father before killing himself.

Police believe Steven Pladl, 45, committed the triple murder-suicide that spanned several states over the past week. 

“This is a tragedy for everyone involved. We are all heartbroken,” Pladl’s attorney Rick Friedman told WNCN-TV in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Police first found Pladl’s 20-year-old daughter, Katie Pladl, and her adoptive father, 56-year-old Anthony Fusco, shot dead in Connecticut. Both were found buckled up in a black pickup truck near an intersection in New Milford. The driver’s side window had been smashed, according to the News-Times in Danbury, Connecticut.

Police said the body of Steven Pladl was found shortly afterward in New York. He died of a gunshot wound.

Hours after those deaths were discovered, 7-month-old Bennet – the son of Steven and Katie – was

Alabama Man Tried To Kidnap Woman And Sell Her ‘Clean Virgin’ Daughter For Sex

An Alabama man could spend the rest of his life behind bars for attempting to kidnap a woman and sell her 14-year-old daughter for sex.

Brian David “Blaze” Boersma pleaded guilty to the attempted kidnapping of a mother and her daughter, according to a Monday press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Alabama.

U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town wrote that Boersma, 48  had plans to kidnap a mother, allegedly help kill her, and sell her young daughter to a pimp. His plan was thwarted by undercover FBI agents.  

Town stated that Boersma, a truck driver, allegedly asked a co-worker if he could help Boersma find someone to pay to kidnap a woman and her teen daughter. He allegedly thought he would find someone to pay $40,000 for the girl because she is a “young, clean virgin.”  Boersma then allegedly gave that co-worker $3,440 in installments for a future kidnapping.

Boersma prepared

Georgia Woman Sentenced To Life In Prison After Shooting Daughter-In-Law While Grandsons Were Waiting Outside

This is not standard grandparent behavior!

A Cobb County, Georgia grandmother was sentenced to life behind bars this week for killing her daughter-in-law while her grandkids were just feet away.

Elizabeth “Betsy” Wall pleaded guilty, but mentally ill, on Friday to the murder of mom and beloved kindergarten teacher Jenna Wall. Elizabeth, 64, was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

In the summer of 2016, Wall picked up her two grandsons, age 7 and 8, from Jenna’s home. She brought them to her car and then went back into Jenna’s home to confront the 35-year-old mother. Then, Elizabeth shot her daughter-in-law four times before leaving her to die. Jenna and Elizabeth’s son were embroiled in a divorce during the time of the shooting. Elizabeth’s son had claimed that Jenna had an affair, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Elizabeth reportedly cried during her court
