Naked, Disgruntled Postal Worker Who Was Facing Dismissal Allegedly Kills 2 Supervisors

Two days before Christmas, a mail carrier from Columbus, Ohio, who was facing dismissal from his job allegedly murdered a supervisor and United States Postal Service investigator who were involved in the disciplinary action against him.

According to ABC News, DeShaune Stewart, 24, has been charged with aggravated murder and murder for the two deaths, and it is unclear if he has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.

Stewart allegedly shot his supervisor, 52-year-old Lance Dempsey, to death at the post office he worked at.

Witnesses said that when Dempsey saw Stewart approaching him, naked and carrying a gun, Dempsey asked, “What the hell?”

Stewart then killed a postal inspector, 53-year-old Ginger Ballard, outside of her home. Stewart was reportedly naked during both killings.

Day Care Worker Sentenced To Prison For Death Of Infant With Fractured Skull, Broken Arms

A Utah day care worker has been sentenced to prison after an 8-month-old boy died in her care. As The Salt Lake Tribune reported, 36-year-old Tisha Lynn Morley was convicted in May of first-degree felony child abuse homicide in the 2014 death of 8-month-old Lincoln Penland. On Wednesday, a judge sentenced Morley to the maximum sentence — a five-year-to-life term in the Utah State Prison. 

“I’m not a monster,” Morley said during the sentencing. “I’m not a terrible person. I’m a person who made a terrible mistake.” She admitted that she made a “neglectful and careless mistake” that led to the boy’s death, but asked the judge not to give her prison time. 

On February 19, 2014, Lincoln suffered fatal injuries at Morley’s in-home day care. His skull was fractured and both arms were broken. His brain and spine also sustained injuries. The infant died days later at a hospital.

Prosecutors accused Morley of grabbing

A restaurant co-worker of Savannah Gold, the 21-year-old Florida woman who was reported missing last Wednesday, confessed to her murder and led police to her body Saturday, according to NBC affiliate WTLV.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office posted a message on its Twitter page yesterday, saying, “Savannah Gold: #JSO has arrested Lee Rodarte, 28 years old, a manager at Bonefish Grill, where she worked, for her murder,” along with the killer’s mugshot. It is believed the two had a casual romantic relationship.

Gold’s family and friends became concerned Wednesday evening after she didn’t show up for her shift at the seafood restaurant chain’s Jacksonville, Florida location. In the parking lot, police found her car. It was unlocked, with her purse still inside it, and the front, left tire punctured.

Within hours of when her shift was supposed to begin, relatives received text messages from her phone, saying she had

Transgender Worker Sues McDonald’s, Alleging Horrific … – Oxygen

A trans woman is suing a Michigan McDonald’s restaurant after she allegedly received extreme discrimination by her managers while she was employed there, which she said included the managers groping her genitals and forcing her to use a toilet in a broom closet.

La’Ray Reed, 25, worked at a McDonald’s in Redford, Michigan for six months beginning in April 2015, BuzzFeed reported. Reed filed the lawsuit against McDonald’s and Jon Campbell, the owner of the franchise where she was employed, last month.

The lawsuit, which BuzzFeed published in its entirety, alleges that shortly after Reed was hired by the franchise, a coworker asked her if she was “a top or bottom” and “a boy or girl.” Reed told the coworker that these comments were offensive, but reportedly continued to hear employees wondering about the size of her genitals and talking about having sex with her.

Per a police statement, authorities received a report that an infant was not breathing at Rocket Tiers Learning Center. Emergency services came to the daycare and tried performing CPR.

Authorities believe that 23-year-old Walden assaulted the infant while she was napping and the resulting injuries caused her death.
