Man Claims His Girlfriend’s Mutilated Corpse Was A Blow Up Doll With Human Flesh

After police discovered a woman’s mutilated body, her boyfriend claimed her remains were merely a blow-up doll with human flesh. Police in Miami, Florida found Deanna Clendinen’s corpse on Friday at 32-year-old Jerome Ernest Wright’s home, according to the Miami Herald.

The cops did not believe Wright’s story, and they subsequently arrested him and charged him with abusing a dead human body. According to police, Clendinen’s stomach has been lacerated and several of her internal organs were removed.

So far, Wright has denied killing his 52-year-old girlfriend. He has additionally denied that the corpse is even human. He has not yet been charged with murder.

“Pending the [Miami-Dade County] medical examiner’s report, we’ll know which way the investigation will go,” Miami-Dade Detective Alvaro Zabaleta told the Miami Herald.

Wright’s mother Della Rosalie Wright called the police last week after noticing a foul smell coming from the bedroom of the home she shares with

Inventor Peter Madsen Admits To Dismembering Journalist Kim Wall’s Body

Peter Madsen, a rocket and submarine inventor, has admitted to dismembering (but not murdering) award-winning journalist Kim Wall.

Wall had last been seen on Madsen’s Nautilus submarine, shortly before her headless torso was discovered in nearby waters. She had been reporting on Madsen’s creations.

According to the New York Times, Madsen confessed to tossing Wall’s body in the ocean after she died from carbon monoxide poisoning inside the submarine. Madsen had changed his account of the events numerous times, at first claiming that she had left his vessel alive. He later changed his story to say that she hit her head during her reporting and died. There remains no explanation or known motivation for the dismemberment.

Wall’s limbs had been obviously removed by force and her body showed that she had been stabbed multiple times. Her severed head showed no sign of trauma, contradicting Madsen’s narrative.

During investigations, hard drives of

A man was arrested Friday in Hawaii on suspicion that he murdered his ex-girlfriend and her three-year-old son in 2015.According to KUTV, Christopher Richard Polson, 28, has been charged with two counts of aggravated murder. Police think he killed Emily Almiron and her child Gabriel Almiron in Utah, wrapped their bodies in sheets and hid their remains, according to the Idaho State Journal.

A court document states: “The complete disappearance of Emily and Gabriel and their abandonment of all their property, coupled with Defendant’s actions and obstructions and lies to police, show that Defendant murdered Emily and three-year-old Gabriel in the same criminal episode, and then wrapped them in sheets to move their bodies and then buried or otherwise disposed of and concealed their bodies.”

According to a probable cause statement, detectives claim they traced Poulson’s cell phone activity. On Sept. 8, 2015, Polson’s phone was allegedly tracked back

Medium Believes Maura Murray Died At The Hands Of A Potential …

On the most recent episode of “The Disappearance of Maura Murray,”  journalist Maggie Freleng and former U.S. Marshal Art Roderick spoke to medium Allison DuBois about the case. Allison said she knew absolutely nothing about Maura Murray or about any of the speculations surrounding her disappearance prior to her arrival in New Hampshire. Using just Maura’s name, photo and birthday, Allison gave her impression of Maura’s whereabouts.

“She wouldn’t stay away willingly,” DuBois told the investigators. “She wouldn’t not come back.”

Maggie asked her if she believes Maura is still alive.

“My sense is that she is not alive,” Allison said. “Normally she wouldn’t get into a car with somebody that she just met or that she didn’t know that well.”

She said she envisions Maura taking a ride from a man in a car. But, she thinks others were involved.

Video Goes Viral Showing ‘White Lives Matter’ Group Attacking Interracial Couple At A Bar

Following a “White Lives Matter” rally in central Tennessee, a group of demonstrators attacked an interracial couple at a bar brawl. Video of the attack is now circulating on social media.

According to Splinter News, the white supremecist rally originally scheduled was quickly called off when counter-protestors outnumbered the overtly racist agitators by three to one. The bigoted demonstrations dispersed but the members spilled into local bars. 

A witness described the situation on Facebook:

“I went to Brentwood this evening to escape the rally chaos in Murfreesboro,” says Annelise Werme in her post. “Guess who showed up at the restaurant I was at. I recognized them as soon as they walked in, and I wondered if anyone else there knew. These guys, maybe 20 of them, dressed in all black, paraded through to an adjoining room, and immediately started harassing a biracial couple there. It broke out into a huge

October 30, 1938: ‘The War Of The Worlds’ Radio Drama Causes Mass Panic

This Day in Crime History is a flash briefing available on Amazon Alexa. Just search OXYGEN to enable.

On October 30, 1938, Orson Welles narrated an adapted performance of H.G. Wells’ novel “The War of the Worlds” as a Halloween special radio drama. Many listeners tuning in mistook the dramatic production as a report, inciting panic about alien invasions throughout the country.

Presented as a simulated news bulletin without commercial interruption, the show blurred the boundaries of fiction by approaching the sci-fi event as a series of emergency reports. The program did, however, introduce itself as fictional — but many missed the explanation and took the scenario as fact.

Police were called in during the production in attempt to halt its broadcasting, as it was blamed for inciting a mob. The extent to which mass riots were actually caused has since been scrutinized, with many saying the amount of destruction that resulted was
