Snapped: Killer Couples returns for its 9th season in January, and it’s packed with nine new episodes of “America’s most dangerous duos,” including a shocking series premiere in which a “best man” gets murdered when a hitman mistakes him for his lover’s husband.
Lee Ann Reidel, 36, was apparently an unhappy upper middle class wife who wanted her husband dead so she could inherit his money and keep their child all to herself. In 2000, she fell head over heels in love with a “hitman,” Ralph Salierno, hired to murder Reidel’s husband, health enthusiast gym owner, Paul Reidel.
When the couple married in 1998, friends and family deemed them the perfect couple, but soon after, Lee Ann discovered her new husband had a crack cocaine addiction that tore the marriage apart. In 2000, she left Paul, taking their young son with her and moving in with her mother in Florida. Within six months,
A Minnesota woman who was taking out her trash was attacked by a police dog on the hunt for two burglary suspects—and now she’s suing the dog’s officer, The Washington Post said.
The 5-year-old police dog, Gabe, was allowed to roam on a 20 foot leash at the time of the September attack, according to body cam footage. As the officers chased down the suspects, Gabe ran past a dumpster and bit the right arm of Desiree Collins, 52, refusing to let go.
“Please,” Collins yelled, according to the footage. “Help me!”
Gabe released Collins after 30 seconds of clenching. “What did I do to him?” Collins asked.
“Nothing,” an officer responded. “Just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
But Collins is now filing a federal suit against one of the officers, Thaddeus Schmidt, for the incident.
“What you have here is a completely innocent person taking out their garbage … and a

A librarian has been found dead following a solo sex game gone wrong.
According to the New York Post, 38-year-old Simon Smith of the United Kingdom was discovered wearing a mask over his head with his body inside a cupboard.
A former funeral director, he is believed to have been killed following an “extremely dangerous” game of “breath play.” Categorized as autoerotic asphyxiation, the act is when a person intentionally restricts oxygen to the brain for the purposes of sexual arousal.
Authorities got involved in the investigation on May 26 when Smith did not appear at his job at a library in Milford Haven. They went to his home in Fishguard and found him in the cupboard in a black leather mask. The coroner, Mark Layton, says that Smith did not want to kill himself, and it was an accident, reports New York Post. “There is nothing to suggest that this was an attempt
Last week, Richard Rojas drove his Honda Accord into a busy sidewalk in New York City’s Times Square. The incident, which momentarily brought the city to a halt as experts wondered if the situation was terrorism-related, left one dead and 22 others injured. Now, Rojas has come forward admitting he has various mental health issues, but does not know what, specifically, is the problem.
Rojas has since admitted that he was high on marijuana and PCP during the altercation. After running into almost two dozen people, Rojas had exited his car and reportedly screamed, “You were supposed to shoot me! I wanted to kill them!”
