A Woman Pled Guilty To Killing A Young Mother And Stealing Her Baby

A woman has admitted to her role in the violent murder of a young North Dakota mother. According to People, 38-year-old Brooke Crews of Fargo confessed to killing 22-year-old Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind and stealing her baby.

LaFontaine-Greywind was reportedly murdered in August and her baby was ripped from her womb. At her funeral in September, her boyfriend, Ashton Matheny, brought the infant who survived. “It was wonderful that [the baby] Haisley Jo was able to spend those moments along with her family, as well,” the family spokeswoman said.

On August 19, LaFontaine-Greywind disappeared from her apartment while eight months pregnant. She told her family she was going to help Crews (seen below) with a sewing project but never returned.

On August 27, her body was found in plastic wrap in the Red River. The medical examiner called her cause of death “homicidal violence.” No further details on the manner of death or how the baby was

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

Video Of Off-Duty Cop Holding His Baby While Killing 2 Robbers In Gun Battle Goes Viral

Surveillance video captured a shocking incident in Campo Limpo Paulista, Brazil on Saturday. Two men wearing hoodies stormed a pharmacy, announcing that they were about to rob the establishment.

But, shopping inside was off-duty Sao Paulo police sergeant, Rafael Souza, who was carrying his infant child. One of the armed men pointed a gun at Souza. Souza then pulled his own gun, Brazilian paper Estadao reports. He then got into a 25-second running gun battle with the men.

In the now-viral video Souza shoots at the men while keeping an eye on his wife, who took shelter behind one of the store’s aisles, the Washington Post reports. Her hands are over her ears. His wife reaches out for their child and Souza stops shooting at the men for a brief moment in time to hand the infant to his wife. Then, he resumes gunfire.

He is suspected of killing rookie police officer Brian Shaw following a traffic stop gone awry.

An affidavit states that Holt had jumped out of a vehicle being driven by Tavon Jamere Harper (who was arrested on drug-related and fleeing charges).

Man Accused Of Killing Spree Wrote Cryptic Message In Victim’s Blood

Police arrested a 22-year-old Florida man in late October on charges that he killed three victims and targeted two others, People magazine reported.

On Oct. 27, police found the body of Derick Westley Tucker, 46, on the ground near a storage unit and next to a hacksaw and machete covered in blood. The killer used Tucker’s blood to write a strange message: “4 Stop Wait Time.”

Later that day, police arrested security guard Nathaniel Maurice Petgrave in the murder, and charged him with two other deaths.

Investigators believe the “4” in the bloody message was a reference to the number of people Petgrave believe he had killed; one of the victims recovered after being shot in the neck, police said.

Petgrave, who was homeless, had ammunition in a makeshift camp matching the bullet casings from one of the murder scenes, investigators claimed. Detectives allegedly found Petgrave in a stolen black pickup truck.

Police claim

Mom Found Guilty Of Killing 7-Week-Old Baby After Trying To Blame Her Autistic Sons

A mother from Troy, Maine was convicted of manslaughter on Tuesday for the death of her 7-week-old baby, which she allegedly tried to pin on one of her two autistic sons. During her trial, 32-year-old Miranda Hopkins told the jury she drank shots of liquor and smoked marijuana the night the infant Jaxson died, according to Associated Press.

Local reports claim Hopkins gave testimony on Monday, recalling how she found the infant him cold, stiff and unresponsive back in January. She claimed she blacked out and then found Jaxson “beat to hell.” However, she previously told police that one of her two autistic sons was possibly responsible for the infant’s death. She told the jury that she lied because she was afraid her other two sons, ages 6 and 8, would be taken away from her. Those two boys have been described as “profoundly autistic” and nonverbal.

Alt-Right Conspiracy Theorist Accused Of Killing Father For Calling Him A Nazi

Conspiracy theorist Lane Davis, who had previously interned for the controversial Breitbart editor and alt-right figurehead Milo Yiannopoulos, has been accused of the murder of his father, Charles Davis.

According to The New York Daily News, police received a call about Lane and his father involved in an altercation. Lane’s mother, who made the call, said her son was “ranting about stuff on the internet” and calling them both “leftists” and “pedophiles.”

“He’s not physically threatening us or anything,” Catherine told the dispatcher in the audio of a call obtained by the Daily Beast. “He just gets out of control and he’s ranting about stuff from the internet.”

A second call was made minutes later, with Lane’s mother now reporting that Lane’s father had been stabbed. Lane then walked outside, awaiting the arrival of police. A third call was made by Lane’s mother: “He’s dead, he’s dead, he’s dead.”

2 Women Charged In Killing Of 2 Little Girls On Colorado Farm

Two women are accused of killing two young girls whose bodies were found last month in Colorado. Nashika Bramble and Madani Ceus, both 37, have been charged with murder. Previously, they were charged with child abuse causing death, along with three other people, according to Fox News.

Investigators have not yet elaborated on what details may have led to the murder charges.

“In my 37 years as Sheriff, I have never seen anything as cruel and heartless as this,” San Miguel County Sheriff Bill Masters said last month after the discovery of the two girls’ bodies, according to the Denver Channel. The children are between the ages of 5 and 10, according to police. It is believed that they had been dead for several weeks before they were found. Their decomposing corpses were found on a 17-acre farm about 30 miles west of Telluride, a ski resort town.
