Man Kills Former Neighbor With Ax After Accusing Him Of Sexual Abuse: ‘I Killed My Pedophile’

A man allegedly murdered his former neighbor on Friday by chopping him up with an ax-like tool known as a splitting maul. Mitchell Edward Hoogenakker, 24, has been arrested for the death of 67-year-old John Gallagher. The murder marks the first homicide in Hopkins, Minnesota since 2009.

The wife of the victim said her husband was dragged out of the house by Hoogenakker, according to a CBS affiliate. Gallagher had reportedly filed a harassment restraining order against his alleged murderer last month.

“The neighbor used a tool (an ax) to forcibly chop through the door, confronted our victim, dragged him out of the house and subsequently our victim died of sharp force injuries in the front yard,” said Hopkins Police Sgt. Mike Glassberg.

A witness, who was renting from Gallagher, said he he could hear the sounds of the “impact” of a weapon on a body, according to an ABC affiliate.

17-Year-Old Mom Charged After Neighbor Finds Baby Abandoned In Plastic Bag For 3 Days

Police arrested a New York state teenager on charges that she left her baby abandoned in a trash bag for three days before she was found, USA Today reported.

Harriette M. Hoyt, 17, was charged with second-degree attempted murder after neighbors discovered the child, who was between 8 months and 2 years old, according to differing reports.

Reportedly, they heard something that they initially believed was an animal crying behind a block of clapboard houses. At about 1 pm on Tuesday, they discovered that the noise was coming from a baby girl with feet sticking out of a white garbage bag.

“Her legs were just dangling in the bag. Her head was in the bag. Her whole head was covered all the way down. I tore it,” said the neighbor who rescued the girl, Kayla Seals, to WENY-TV

Angry Neighbor Unplugs Birthday Bouncy House, Injures Kids

Video of a neighbor unplugging a bounce house has gone viral following reports of injuries suffered from children who were playing in the inflatable structure.

According to CBStwo children were rushed to the hospital as the balloon castle deflated, causing kids to be trapped inside. One child was treated for the distress, and the other for injuries incurred during the rescue.

“We were very nervous about the kids because it was extremely hot, and they were trapped inside the bounce house,” mother Deborah Romero said. “We couldn’t really reach for all the kids, and we unfortunately had to pull one of the kids by his leg.”

Surveillance video shows an unknown man unplugging the fans, which maintained the structure’s integrity.
