Police: Three Alleged Gang Members May Have Been Involved In More Than 10 Murders

Police believe that three men from Kansas City, Missouri who were arrested last week may have been involved in over ten murders in addition to other violence.

Chrizion Banks, 20, Trevontae Stewart, 24, and Cedric Ford, 28 are suspected of a variety of charges. Stewart and Ford have been charged with owning illegal firearms, according to KSHB. Banks has been charged with robbery.

Capt. Chris Young with the Violent Crimes Enforcement Division told KCTV: “These individuals are involved in numerous robberies, numerous shootings. They’re wrapped up in numerous homicide investigations as well. These guys have been able to avoid the police and charges for some time now. I mean, the bottom line is they intimidate their witnesses and the victims of the crimes they commit.”

Young did not specify any of the details of the homicides. The trio all allegedly members of the  “Young Hitters” gang. They were all listed on

10 Chilling Songs Based On Real-Life Murders, Assassinations And Terrorist Attacks

With the 17th century advent of British murder ballads, the gangsta rap of the 1990s and modern-day narcocorridos (which sing about the savage exploits of Mexican drug cartels), it’s been proven that murder makes for good musical subject matter. And while many a songwriter has had a hit with tales of fictitious crimes and villains, others have ripped their storylines straight out of the daily news.

As you might expect, plenty of heavy metal bands have exploited the shocking details of the most notorious serial killers to titillate their audiences. Other artists, however, have tried to get inside the minds of the killers themselves, and the results often bring a sense of discomforting sympathy. Here are 10 songs — from ‘30s folk to ‘60s rock, and from ‘70s punk to modern hip hop — that sing about some of the worst killers and most notorious murders of all time.

With 3 Murders In 10 Days, Floridians Terrified A New Serial Killer Is On The Loose

Florida police warned residents of a possible serial killer in the Tampa neighborhood last week, telling residents not to walk alone at night after the third in a chain of murders over the past 10 days left an Autistic man dead from gunshot wounds.

“We have someone terrorizing the neighborhood,” Interim Tampa police Chief Brian Dugan said during a Friday news conference after 20-year-old Anthony Taino Naiboa was fatally shot Thursday night. Naiboa was found just 100 yards from where 22-year-old Benjamin Mitchell was killed days earlier, on Oct. 9. Another victim, 32-year-old Monica Caridad Hoffa was found dead in a vacant lot on Oct. 13.

Police To Question New Suspect in Delphi Murders | Crime Time

Police arrested a person of interest in the unsolved murders of two Delphi teens last week, police confirmed Friday as their search for the attacker continues.

Daniel Nations, 31, was homeless and living under bridges in Morgan County — the same area Abby Williams and Libby German went missing on February 14. Williams and German’s bodies were found near Monon High Bridge, in an area about 1.5 hours from where Nations was living at the time.  

German and Williams’ family dropped them off in the area for a hike near Deer Creek on February 13, who were 13 and 14 at the time, respectively. Their family became worried when the girls did not return from their hike at the time they’d agreed upon. Their bodies were found the next day about a mile away from where they’d been dropped off. Police have yet to release information on how the girls were

5 Reasons We’re Excited About NBC’s ‘Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders’

Spaulding was going to have to pay over tens of thousands in legal fees. The child at the center of the argument has since been put into DHS custody and may eventually go to live with a family member.
