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.

2 Men Allegedly Killed Stray Dog And Used Its Blood To Stage Crime Scene

Two men allegedly killed a stray dog to help stage a fake crime scene with a long-running enemy. According to WSAZ, 26-year-old Jeffrey Spence and 19-year-old Casey Spence used dog blood to help concoct a story about being attacked. They have been charged with first-degree assault, second-degree criminal trespassing and theft by unlawful taking or disposition a motor vehicle.

The incident began when authorities found a man named Fred Daniels hit on the head with a crowbar near his home in Tomahawk, Kentucky on Saturday morning. He had to have around 50 staples in his head. He said the assailants had stolen his truck after the attack.

Later that morning, the Spences claimed Daniels assaulted them at their home with a shotgun and that Casey used the crowbar in an act of self-defense. While searching the premises, authorities found blood everywhere in the home that was staged to look like Daniels’ blood and a hole

5 Times Black Fridays Turned Violent | Crime Time – Oxygen

Just hours after giving thanks for what we do have, some of us will fight with our neighbors to save dollars on products we don’t need. Black Friday, the day following Thanksgiving, has long been devoted to holiday promotions. Over the years, several lives have been lost over such deals. Here are some of the most notable incidents.

Homicide For The Holidays returns for a new season Saturday, November 25 at 6/5c only on Oxygen.

Seth Sutherland Commits Suicide During School Fire Drill | Crime …

A high school student student fatally shot himself during a school fire drill. As WKMG reports, 17-year-old senior Seth Sutherland of Lake Minneola High School posted messages on social media and sent thoughts to loved ones before killing himself on Tuesday.

Authorities are treating the death as a “planned event.”

Lake County sheriff’s spokesman John Harrell shared, “We have reasons to believe that this was a planned event. [The courtyard near the bus loop] is out in the open, but it was not a very populated and crowded area at that time. It seems like the majority of the student body was on the other side of the building.”

Harrell said he doesn’t believe any students witnessed or heard the shooting. Sixteen-year-old Isaiah Vargas, however, said that he saw what happened through a window. 

“The body was just lifeless. Teachers were running and everything, saw it through the window. Just terrible,” Vargas said.

Carl Rodgers Arrested For Wife’s Murder In Cold Case | Crime Time

A man from Pennsylvania was arrested Monday for the death of his wife three decades earlier. Carl Rogers, 62, of Shermans Dale has been charged with the 1983 murder of Debra Jane Rogers, Pennsylvania State Police announced on Tuesday. The break was made after the state police made an effort to reinvestigate cold case homicides last year, CNN reports.

“These cases never go away, much like the pain of the family members who lost a loved one,” Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro stated.

Debra Rogers was 23 years old when her body was found in a wooded area by her family’s home. At the time she lived with Carl and their 5-year-old daughter in a trailer on the Rogers family farm. At the time, Carl told police that Debra was depressed about her job and that she mentioned suicide during an argument the night she disappeared.

“That was completely at odds with
