Adult Film Actress Commits Suicide After Being Accused Of Homophobia For Not Working With Gay Porn Star

A 23-year-old porn star committed suicide after she was criticized online for a tweet in which she said she wouldn’t do a porn scene with a man who had shot gay porn for her “safety,” Fox News reported.

August Ames, one of the biggest rising stars in the porn industry, died Tuesday due to asphyxiation by hanging, the Ventura County Medical Examiner told The Blast.

“She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me,” said her husband, Kevin Moore, to porn trade magazine Adult Video News (AVN). “Please leave this as a private family matter in this difficult time.”

Ames, who had more than 270 onscreen porn credits, had received intense criticism online for a tweet in which she said she wouldn’t have onscreen sex with a man who had done gay porn.

Criminal Justice Teacher Accused Of Having Sex With 16-Year-Old Boy, Exposing Him To HIV

A criminal justice teacher and part-time sheriff’s deputy from Waycross, Georgia is accused of not only having sex with a 16-year-old boy, but also of knowingly exposing that teenager to HIV.

After his arrest in late November, 42-year-old Tracy Wayne Crosby was suspended from his teaching job. He was also fired from his part-time gig at the Pierce County Sheriff’s department, where he worked as an investigator.

Jail records indicate that Crosby is being charged with reckless conduct for allegedly knowingly exposing someone to HIV, which is a felony. In addition, he is being slammed with a misdemeanor charge of sodomy.

It is unclear if he currently has a lawyer who can speak on his behalf.

The victim’s mother actually caught her son and Crosby in the act. According to News4Jax, suspicious after her son didn’t explain where he was going, she tailed him and followed him to a park. It was

Mother And Boyfriend Accused Of Murdering 3-Year-Old Boy, Encasing His Body In Concrete

The body of a 3-year-old boy was discovered encased in concrete at a Wichita, Kansas home back in September. Now, the child’s mother and her boyfriend are being charged with first-degree murder. On Tuesday, Miranda Miller and Stephen Bodine were charged for Evan Brewer’s death, according to The New York Times. The couple is expected to appear in court this week, and at this time, it is unclear if they have lawyers who can speak on their behalf.

A landlord discovered Brewer’s body while cleaning out the home after Miller and Bodine had moved out. According to The New York Times, the landlord noticed a foul smell exuding through a concrete structure in the home. The couple, however, was already in jail on prior, unrelated charges, and each of them are now being held on $500,000 bail.

Evan’s dad, Carlo Brewer, was concerned about

Couple Accused Of Microwaving 3-Month-Old Baby Boy

A couple from Park Hills, Missouri allegedly blamed a television commercial for inspiring them to microwave their 3-month-old son. The baby, who is alive but injured, was brought to a hospital’s emergency room by his parents for a facial rash in April. But doctors discovered something far more sinister than a rash: head injuries, a skull fracture and second-degree burns on the baby’s face.

At first, Derick Boyce-Slezak and Mikala Boyce-Slezak, both 22, blamed the wounds on some sort of cleaning agent, according to court documents. They initially said that they wiped their baby clean with a disinfectant-soaked towel. But on Monday, a social worker explained during a court hearing that Derick allegedly dropped their child in a feeble attempt to imitate a commercial. What commercial inspired their behavior was not revealed. Then, the father allegedly put his son in a microwave and turned it on for a brief

Woman Accused Of Killing Thanksgiving Guest For Smoking Crack And Not Offering Her Any

A woman hosting a Thanksgiving dinner found it rude that her guest allegedly brought crack-cocaine into her home without her permission. Even ruder, he didn’t offer to share.

Thanksgiving dinner ended in horror when a Minneapolis woman allegedly killed her dinner guest for doing drugs at the table — and not offering her any.

Anenia Marie Hare, 47, of Minneapolis was charged with second-degree murder on Monday for allegedly killing 69-year-old Edward Caliph, according to the Star Tribune. Hare invited the man over to her place on Thursday for a Thanksgiving meal. But, as Hare told police, before “they started to eat, she looked over and saw the victim lighting up a crack pipe,” the Star Tribune reported.

The sight allegedly enraged the dinner host, who reportedly admitted to police that she was further irritated by the fact that Caliph didn’t offer her any of his crack. Hare then grabbed an

Attorney: Murder Charge Of Sister Accused Of Driving Off Cliff To Kill Twin Should Be Dropped

Alexandria Duval (nee Alison Dadow) is being accused of killing her twin sister after a car in which both of them drove off a cliff. Alexandria survived the crash with minor injuries; her lawyers are now arguing that the charges against her should be dropped.

According to People, the defense is attempting to argue that testimony given by a detective in a grand jury hearing was incorrect. Duval’s lawyers claim that a witness to the crash said that he saw the passenger pulling the driver’s hair with both hands, but a detective testified that the witness had said the passenger had stopped pulling the driver’s hair by the time the vehicle was jolting over the cliff’s edge.

Before the crash, Alexandria and her sister Anastasia Duval (nee Ann Dadow) had owned and operated a chain of yoga studios in Florida. The two had moved and changed their names after going bankrupt.

“They were very well
