KYAnonymous Wrongly Accuses Man of Sex Crimes

For the past few years it has been very troublesome watching Deric Lostutter aka KYAnonymous act irresponsibly online when it came to various cases that he is involved with.  As most know, Deric Lostutter is the Anonymous member KyAnonymous, who initiated #OPROLLREDROLL and who initially posted the now infamous Michael Nodianos video, as well as posting an Anon warning video to students that if they did not apologize to Jane Doe he would post their private information as well as social security numbers.  Deric Lostutter was wrong for making those types of threats against teenagers who may have tweeted ugly things to the victim, and sadly – he is still acting like this years later.   Not only does he continue to use the Steubenville rape case as his claim to fame, but he also uses his raid by the FBI … Continue reading →

ARMED AND DANGEROUS – Katelyn Settle and Zachary Dickman

According to West Virginia State Police, 20 year old Zachary Thomas Dickman Facebook page and 14 year old Katelyn Settle from the Brush Fork area are considered armed and dangerous by troopers after they allegedly assaulted a juvenile at the victim’s home.  From comments on the WVNS Facebook page, Katelyn and Zachary are brother and sister.   While teens wanted for attempted murder is really not something that out of the ordinary, what I did find interesting was the guardian of Katelyn’s comments on Facebook.  When crimes like these happen many always rush to judgment and point a finger at bad parenting. I’ve been guilty of it – I think most of us have. However in this instance. Katelyn’s father  immediately commented to the post and basically said that he did not raise his child that way and if she was found … Continue reading →

The Twisted Life of Gypsy Rose Blancharde

A few weeks ago, a friend posted on my Facebook about a missing persons/murder case in her hometown of Springfield, MO.  The mother of a disabled girl was found stabbed to death in her bedroom, and the disabled daughter was gone – nowhere to be found, and her wheelchair was left behind.  A strange message was posted on the Facebook account that they shared.  That in itself caused me to give the ol side eye.  Gypsy Blancharde was allegedly in her late teens yet shared a Facebook account with her mother?  The message posted said “That bitch is dead” followed by an equally disturbing “I fucken SLASHED THAT FAT PIG AND RAPED HER SWEET INNOCENT DAUGHTER…HER SCREAM WAS SOOOO FUCKEN LOUD LOL.” When friends of the Blanchardes couldn’t reach them by phone, they became worried that something was wrong.  It … Continue reading →

Meadow Bridge High School

I realize I haven’t really been blogging that much here, and most of it is because I’ve been busy and/or having massive writer’s block or…just don’t have it in me to be passionate about some of the crazy stuff going on in our world, but something was brought to my attention the other day on Facebook and I wanted to share this story for a few reasons.  One, because I really don’t talk much about my past and two because I am proud of my hometown and the drive and determination of what amounts to a little mountain town in the hills of Southern West Virginia. In 2010, the population was 379.  It’s very small but very laid out geographically because it’s country.  And when I say country I mean one gas station and the nearest grocery store is almost … Continue reading →

German Television does first Edward Snowden Interview

Apparently YouTube has been pulling the video and American mainstream media is not reporting on the interview.  With that in mind, I am sharing it because what the NSA was doing and probably continues to do affects all of us. From Buzzfeed: “In a world where I would not be restricted from killing an American, I personally would go and kill him myself,” a current NSA analyst told BuzzFeed. “A lot of people share this sentiment.”   http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=f93_1390833151 … Continue reading →

“I thought it was funny”

Beckley, West Virginia police had been trying to identify the person who recorded a vicious fight and posted it to Facebook.  After identifying  him as Timothy Gibbs, local news WVNS spoke with him to ask why he would record the fight and not intervene. ” I mean, what do they expect me to do? I was just sitting there waiting on the bus, I seen the fight, I thought it was funny. There’s a lot of fight videos on Facebook, I don’t see why everybody is on my case now.” Beckley, Bluefield Anyone who stands by and watches someone get his head stomped into the pavement is an asshole.  So, there’s your answer Timothy Gibbs.  You are an asshole and a coward. … Continue reading →

Battered Wife Needs Financial Assistance

A few months ago a woman contacted me on my Facebook page to reach out to me for help.  She is a victim of domestic violence and what broke my heart is the terror she felt for her pets.  She didn’t want to go into a shelter situation because she would not leave her pets behind.  Honestly, knowing how much I love my own pets – I could understand her desperation.  Given the choice what would you do when faced with shelter or the possibility of your pets being abused as well by leaving them behind? I reached out to some resources for her and hoped for the best.  She created an exit plan and has recently filed for divorce.  After being granted a restraining order against her husband, she appeared in court today and the Judge ordered her out … Continue reading →

Trial Rescheduled: Minor Witness Dies in Fire

This is such an incredibly sad story.  An 11-year old girl and her deaf grandparents died in a house fire in  Youngstown, Ohio.  It is being reported that the young girl was also deaf.  Around 3:30 this morning the neighbors heard a loud explosion followed by a second explosion.  One neighbor said the entire house was engulfed in flames from the bottom up after she heard the explosions.  The little girl was to appear as a witness in the trial against the man charged with raping her. Robert Seman, Jr. age 46, had been charged with four felony counts each of rape and gross sexual imposition, according to  local news.  The victim’s mother contacted police in March, 2014 to report that her daughter told her Seman had been engaging in sexual conduct with her for several years.  The rape charges … Continue reading →

The Jodi Arias Haterade

…and THIS is why the true crime community is going to shit and many true crime authors are now writing fiction.  Once long ago, it was enjoyable to write about true crime and to interact with intellectual people who discussed the case and the legal process.  That was until they started going full blown potato and tossing all legalities and sanity aside.  Every high profile case has its share of nutters, but from my perspective — those outweigh the rational fans of true crime and that includes the not so high profile case discussion. The Casey Anthony case was the pivotal point where the intellectuals fled the scene like rats on a sinking ship and the participants were replaced with people who screamed conspiracy, foul, “kill the bitch forget Constitutional rights, kill them again – who needs a trial”.  Did … Continue reading →

Congress Wants to Sell Off Our U.S. Law to Foreign Investors…Stop TPP!

Next month is the anniversary of Fukushima…an ONGOING nuclear power plant disaster http://enenews.com/ that has harmed–and continues to harm–people in Japan and around the globe.Indeed, even our U.S. ‪#‎Navy‬ was poisoned by Fukushima http://enenews.com/?s=Navy. Today, the TPP trade deal may allow corporations to change laws so that we import tainted radioactive foods, without us knowing what is on our shelves https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152410410889431&set=gm.456720797805365&type=1&theater. TPP may also permit energy companies to sue nations for shutting down nuclear power plants (see 4 min. 14 sec. mark: http://youtu.be/FkOEFPxTN5I). TPP is a trade deal that allows corporations to EXTORT us. We will be bullied onto changing our laws or face national bankruptcy http://youtu.be/_ppKO9WX-Ec. These are just a FEW of the MANY horrors that TPP will exact upon us. TPP may overturn ANY local or national law…and will cause a loss of sovereignty in ALL 12 participating … Continue reading →
