Three Arrested, One At Large For Killing Young Father And Leaving His Body In Canyons

Three teens have been arrested in connection with the brutal kidnapping, robbery, and murder of a man whose body was dumped in a canyon on the outskirts of Los Angeles, and the victim’s mother is begging a fourth man to turn himself in.

Sheriff’s deputies on Wednesday found the body of 20-year-old Julian Hamori-Andrade (pictured above), who had a 9-month old baby and another child on the way, in a canyon along Highway 39 in Azusa, a town at the edge of Angeles National Forest and the San Gabriel Mountains, according to a KCAL in Los Angeles.

Authorities believe he was beaten unconscious inside an Azusa home occupied by the four suspects before they left him for dead in the canyon, authorities said.

Police on Wednesday night initially investigated a disturbance at the home of the suspects, where they found a large amount of blood inside the home and leading

Texas Father Kills His Three Children, Ex-Wife’s Boyfriend And Himself

A Texas man shot his ex-wife, her new boyfriend and his own three children before killing himself, police said.

Father Allegedly Abused And Tortured His 10 Kids In Filthy California Home

Impassable hallways, spoiled food, burns, bruises, human and animal feces. 

It was all part of “a long and continuous history of severe physical and emotional abuse” that a northern California father inflicted on his 10 children, police said Monday. 

Jonathan Allen, 29, has been charged with nine counts of felony torture and six counts of felony child abuse, Fairfield police announced.

Social service workers removed the 10 children, ranging in age from four months to 12 years, from the home. Their mother, Ina Rogers, faces lesser charges of neglect.

The children suffered abuse including “puncture wounds, burns, bruising and injuries consistent with being shot by a pellet or airsoft gun,” police said. All of the violence was “for sadistic purposes,” said Sharon Henry, chief deputy district attorney for Solano County.

Despite the charges of vile neglect and abuse, Rogers maintains that she and Allen are loving parents.

“I strive, I thrive on being a good parent to my

How Katie Pladl Went From Aspiring Artist To Victim Of Father’s Incest And Murder

She had a budding future as an artist, with a plan to attend to community college before beginning a career in digital media.

But she gave it all up for a man — her father. He became her husband, and then the father of her child. And, ultimately, her killer.

Two years before her death, Katie Pladl’s life with an adoptive family started to crumble after she reached out to her biological parents and moved in with them in Virginia — leading to an incestuous relationship that ended in horror last week.

Katie began a relationship with her biological father, Steven Pladl, that led to him leaving his wife to marry his daughter and raise a child with her. But last week, police found all three of them dead, along with Katie’s biological father, Anthony Fusco, in a crime spree spanning three states. Police said Steven, 45, killed his daughter/wife, their 7-month-old son Bennet and Fusco before

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

FBI Offers Reward After Ohio Teen Missing Since Witnessing Father’s Death

An Ohio teen is still missing after reportedly witnessing his father being killed in 2017. 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation put out a Missing Person report for Jacob Lee Caldwell, who was last seen on August 21, 2017, in Sugarcreek Township, Ohio. The blonde, blue-eyed 14-year-old boy witnessed the fatal shooting of his father, Robert Caldwell, on August 15 along with his two siblings, according to an FBI news release. At a subsequent press conference, federal authorities announced that the teen was reported missing six nights after his father was killed. His grandmother went to check on him before alerting authorities that Jacob was missing.

Although the teen boy vanished just days after his father’s death, police have a new break in the case of Robert Caldwell’s death and believe someone is helping the teen stay hidden.

On March 13, six people were indicted in connection with the killing of Robert Caldwell, authorities said.

Nikolas Cruz Watched Father Die, Bullied By Brother

More details are emerging about Nikolas Cruz, the suspected school shooter behind the attacks at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine’s Day.

At age 5 he witnessed his dad die of a heart attack while at home in the den while his mother was in the kitchen, according to an investigation by the Sun-Sentinel. After witnessing his dad die, he went to his bedroom and cried.

Early on in life, Cruz was diagnosed with depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, emotional behavioral disability and autism according to Department of Children and Families records, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

Woman Gets Jail Time For Baptizing Daughter Without Father’s Consent

A mother from Charlotte, North Carolina, has been sentenced to seven days in jail for having her daughter baptized without the dad’s consent. According to WSOC-TV, the baptism happened a few years ago when Kendra Stocks and Paul Schaaf were embroiled in a heated custody battle over their daughter. According to court documents, the two definitely butted heads over religion.

The courts reportedly granted Schaaf the final decision-making authority on all legal custody decisions. According to WSOC-TV, that includes religion. In fact, Judge Sean Smith gave the dad full custody “specifically including decisions concerning religion,” the Charlotte Observer reported. Both parents were warned that they must obey the rules or face potential jail time.

Just one day after a judge warned the couple of that, Stocks baptized her daughter, according to court documents. Schaaf found out about it on Facebook.

Court documents state that “the mother has acted selfishly by
