A bitter boyfriend from Auburndale, Florida is accused of setting his girlfriend’s family home ablaze and then pointing the finger at a “random black guy” for the fiery mess.

A registered sex offender has been charged with sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl in a Missouri hospital.
Fifty-seven-year-old Dave Saffeels was charged Saturday with nine felonies, according to CBS News. He also allegedly molested a 2-year-old girl. The two girls were allegedly victimized within a one-month time span.
The Springfield News-Leader reports that Saffeels is currently jailed on $500,000 bond. The probable cause statement says the older girl was repeatedly assaulted in August in a patient room of Cox South Hospital. The 11-year-old was visiting the hospital to see a woman who just had twins, and somehow she and Saffeels ended up in a room alone together.
Cox spokeswoman Kaitlyn McConnell said the hospital was not aware of the allegations at the time.

A few weeks later, Saffeels allegedly raped the girl at her home while she

Cornelia Reynolds, mother of a third grader who killed himself in February, is speaking out and blaming the death on bullying.
“My son hung himself,” Reynolds told an NBC Affiliate in Cincinnati “I was in the living room at the kitchen table, and I went back to check on my son and I found him hanging from his bunk bed.”
The mother said says her son, Gabriel Taye, spent a lot of time in the school’s nurse’s office. There were many days he simply wanted to stay home from school. Now, Reynolds believes those were signs he was bullied by other students.
“I guess he didn’t know how to tell me stuff was happening,” Reynolds said in the report. “Him going to the nurse’s station or him not wanting to go to school, that was his way of trying to communicate with me. That was his way. He probably didn’t want to
