Woman Arrested After 6-Year-Old Disabled Son Found Weighing Only 13 Pounds

A 6-year-old boy with developmental disabilities has been found living in a hotel covered in bruises and bed sores and weighing only 13 pounds. According to Fox13 Memphis, the Department of Children Services (DCS) had been looking for the boy’s mother, Andrea Caldwell, and her two sons for over eight months. Upon discovering them in a Memphis, Tennessee hotel room last week, DCS took away both of 32-year-old Caldwell’s children: the 6-year-old and a 4-year-old.

A DSC worker claimed the boy’s feeding tube was “dirty and clogged, and did not appear to be operable.” In addition to that, Caldwell was allegedly feeding the child baby formula, which did not meet his nutritional needs. Police said she was given free nutritional materials by social services, designed for the child’s needs, but that Caldwell failed to use them, Fox 13 Memphis reported.

The child also allegedly smelled of urine and he

Connecticut resident Gregory Rottjer, 25, was arrested and charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault and reckless endangerment after throwing a person who attempted to intervene during an argument with his girlfriend off a bridge, according to The Huffington Post.

The incident reportedly occurred around 1 AM on Thanksgiving day at the bridge connecting the cities of Shelton and Derby.

3 Men Charged After Taking Video Of Helpless Shark Being Dragged Behind Speedboat

Three men have been charged with animal cruelty after being identified in a shark-dragging video that went viral in July. Miami charter fisherman Mark Quartiano posted the video on Facebook after two Instagram users (who he said were part of the cruelty) sent it to him.

“I was horrified,” Quartiano told CNN. “I’ve been shark fishing for 50 years, and I’ve never seen a disrespect for an animal my entire career that was that evil.”

In the video, men drag a shark behind a speedboat and laugh as it wriggles and flops around in pain.

At one point, one of the men appears to say with a jovial tone, “I think it’s almost dead.”

The video disturbed thousands of people, who shared it in the hope that it would lead to the capture of the three men responsible.

Now, arrests have been made. Michael Wenzel, 25; Robert Lee Benac, 28; and Spencer Heintz, 23,

Fake Doctor Who Collected Patients At Dunkin’ Donuts Fled New York After Illegal Butt Lift Killed Woman

Ex-con Kevin Richardson has been charged with manslaughter and unauthorized practice of a profession after a cosmetic procedure he administered caused the death of Latesha Bynum. Richardson does not have (and never has had) a medical license.

Richardson and an accomplice, Allison Spence (who is charged with one count of manslaughter and eight counts of unauthorized practice of a profession), collected numerous patients at a Dunkin’ Donuts in New York City, using the coffee chain as a waiting room and offering illegal procedures in a nearby apartment.

After receiving a butt lift from Richardson, Bynum checked herself into a hospital when she began feeling dizzy. She subsequently lapsed into a coma and died about two weeks later.

“No one with medical training would have done this because it’s dangerous,” prosecutor Michele Bayer had said in Manhattan Criminal Court. “The victim in this case died soon after. All of these additional victims are in
