Police released the horrifying 911 audio from a Georgia mother who investigators claim placed her two young boys in the oven and turned it on, resulting in them roasting to death, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Lamora Williams, who is charged with two counts of murder in the deaths of her 1- and 2-year-old boys, can be heard in the recording telling the dispatcher that she doesn’t want to go to jail and that she is not to blame for the boys’ deaths.

In the call, placed at about 11:30 pm on Friday, Williams, 24, says that she left her three sons with a cousin who then left the children alone at an Atlanta apartment.

“This is so serious; I’m so scared,” Williams says. “I don’t want to get locked up because I was at work.”

She later repeats herself.

“This is not my fault; I just came home from work,” she says.

Energy Drinks Allegedly Leave Husband With Hole In His Head As Wife Gives Birth

A woman is speaking out after her husband’s love of energy drinks allegedly came close to destroying his life.

First Responders Describe Jessica Chambers As ‘A Zombie’ When She Allegedly Said ‘Eric Set Me On Fire’

BATESVILLE, MS — First responders to the scene where Mississippi teenager Jessica Chambers was found with burns on 93 percent of her body said in court Wednesday morning she was “mentally in shock,” “in a trance,” and that she “looked like a zombie” when she told them a man named Eric set her on fire. 
Yet prosecutors began making their case Wednesday as to why 29-year-old Quinton Tellis—and not a man named Eric—is responsible for Chambers’ horrific murder. Tellis has pleaded not guilty.

On the second day of trial in the small Mississippi courthouse jurors heard from a parade of first responders, many of whom were the last people to speak with Chambers before she fell unconscious on Dec. 6, 2014.

Those who spoke to her at the scene of the crime in Courtland testified she said “Eric set me on fire,” and prosecutors worked to combat these reports, asking the first

Frenchman In ‘World Beard’ Competition Arrested For Allegedly Being Dark Web Drug Dealer ‘OxyMonster’

A Frenchman was arrested just minutes after landing in the United States for a beard competition. Police suspect he is a “dark web” drug dealer known as “OxyMonster.”

Federal authorities were waiting for Gal Vallerius at Atlanta International Airport before the bearded man even landed. He was gearing up for his first trip to America, to compete in the 2017 World Beard and Moustache Championships in Austin. He was registered to compete in the “full beard 30.1-45cm” category, according to the Guardian.

According to court documents, Vallerius’ laptop was searched following his apprehension. Police found a Tor browser to access the “dark web,” and links to the “OxyMonster” accounts on a black market site.  “OxyMonster” allegedly sold OxyContin and Ritalin on the site, with “60 prior sales and five star reviews from buyers.”  The profile indicated he shipped the prescription drugs from France to “anywhere in Europe.”

Husband Of Bride Who Went Missing At Sea Allegedly Stole $100K Worth Of Gold Coins Before Her Disappearance

A man who reported his new wife missing at sea after they went sailing on their honeymoon was arrested on charges that he stole as much as $100,000 in coins several years prior, while he was a first mate on a Caribbean ship, The Palm Beach Post reported.

Lewis Bennett and his wife, Isabella Hellman, were on a honeymoon sail in the early morning on May 15 when their catamaran apparently struck an object and began taking on water. Bennett woke up and found that Hellman, 41, was gone, he told authorities after he was rescued.

Bennett asked the Coast Guard for a “letter of presumed death” within the day, even as investigators continued to search for Hellmann’s body for four days.

Police have not accused Bennett of foul play. But the Coast Guard and the FBI are continuing to conduct a missing person investigation, the Palm Beach Post reported.

Husband Arrested For Allegedly Hiring Men To Kidnap, Strip And Torture Wife Amid Bitter Divorce

A Louisiana man is under arrest after allegedly putting into place a bizarre plan to kidnap and torture his wife, with whom he was locked in a bitter divorce battle.

Court filings attained by the Acadiana Advocate, claim Lawrence Michael Handley hired two known criminals who abducted his estranged wife, stripped her naked in the back of a van, tortured her and threatened to rape and murder her.
