Temp accused of running prostitution biz:
David Baker of New Jersey was arrested for running a craigslist prostitution ring while on temp assignments.
Johns would be referred to Somerset Veterinary Group. Why he chose a vet clinic as a front is beyond me. Anyway, when an undercover cop was there he was propositioned by 50-year-old Cathy Rosania.
My favorite part of the story is that the operation was named “Operation Net-Vet Harlot”. That may be the most awesome prostitution sting name yet. Leave it to the boys in the Garden state.
Family Of Nine Loses Savings Because Of Craigslist Rental Scam:
Another family has been taken by the craigslist rental scam. An family from Peoria, Arizona was new to the area and found a rental home on craigslist that was too good to be true. As expected it was too good to be true.
They met a couple who called themselves Jim and Jaime Williams who they forked over $1500 to.
Then when the family tried to move in they met the actual owner. Luckily the real owners worked something out with the family to let them stay there.
As far as the “Williamses” go…
Peoria Arizona police are asking for the public’s help in looking for the scam artists responsible. They are described as “a short heavyset woman and a man with crooked teeth and a heart tattooed on one hand. They were last seen driving a white Chevy Blazer.”
The article recommends checking with the county first to see who actually owns a rental property.
Terrence Washington: He’s one of the slipperiest fugitives we’ve ever encountered, and Terrence Washington has made a long career out of breaking out of prison and laying low. Most recently, he broke out of prison, seduced a woman, moved into her house, and made her believe that he’s a law-abiding tool salesman before disappearing once again.

Family Of Missing Girl’s Mom Meets With Investigators For 6 Hours:
Casey Anthony’s parents met with investigators for six hours telling the investigators what Casey had told them. The always talkative Cindy Anthony wouldn’t comment on what she talked to investigators about but as usual she had something to say to reporters…
“My daughter may have some mistruths out there or half-truths, but she is not a murderer. You all are sucking the life right out of me every day, having to remind everybody that this is what it’s all about,” Cindy Anthony said while holding a flier of Caylee.
I’m not saying that Cindy Anthony has committed any crime but she sure does act like it by blaming every one but her own daughter.
There was also another phone call between Casey Anthony and her brother Lee released but I didn’t find it interesting at all.
The article also states that People Magazine is doing a story about Casey Anthonmy and spoke to some of her friends…
In the article, friends said, “She would complain about her mother and how she was trying to run her life. But then a few days later, she’d say how much she loved her mother and father.”
A friend who has known Anthony since middle school describes her as “immature and strange at times.”
The friend also said she is always surrounded by drama, according to the article.
I think we all know someone like that. They’re usually just selfish at heart but it manifests itself in some of the most destructive ways possible.
Girl charged with shooting after MySpace threat:
15-year-old Andrea Haskins of Lancaster, Wisc. was arrested for shooting a 17-year-old girl after threatening her on MySpace.
A criminal complaint charging Haskins in adult court with attempted first-degree homicide says she told Amanda Knoble on MySpace that she would shoot her if she came over to her house.
When Knoble drove near her home Tuesday with two other girls, police say Haskins came out of her house with a rifle and shot Knoble in the lower leg.
And the decline of civilization continues unabated.
Search Continues For Computer Belonging To Child Sex Ring Suspect:
The search for Ray Gagnon’s computer continues. Gagnon is the ex-stepfather of Brooke Bennett and instructed a friend of his to dispose of his computer at the time of Brooke’s disappearance.
Originally investigators believed that it was it a San Antonio landfill since that where Gagnon lives. However they were unable to find the computer in the landfill. Now they’re posting fliers in Gagnon’s neighborhood hoping that someone picked it up out of the trash.
The computer allegedly contains a vast amount of child porn and could possibly contain evidence regarding Brooke’s disappearance.
No trial for school shooter:
Thomas White’s mother has told the media that her son has been ruled mentally incompetent to stand trial.
White was the kid who fired off a round in to he ceiling of Memorial Middle School in Joplin, Missouri. The gun he had was his father’s MAC-90.
Without seeing how that evaluation came about I can’t comment on the legitimacy of the findings. However I can comment on what Norma White said to the press.
“He just doesn’t speak like a child would talk,” she said. “It’s a little hard to understand (him) sometimes, and also a little bit of rocking back and forth and he has no memory – very little memory of being a child. He’s asked ‘what was I like as a child?’”
I’m not saying she’s full of crap but I think she does have a flair for the overly dramatic. If it is true then why didn’t she get her son help? Why did it have to take her son firing a gun in school for her to finally do something about it?
3-Year-Old Dies After Finding Gun In Parents’ Car:
3-year-old Tyric Robinson of Jackson, Miss. accidentally shot and killed himself when he found a gun in his parents car. While he was sitting in his parents car parked at a gas station he found the gun and accidentally shot himself in the face. He later died at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.
No charges have been filed against the parents.
I know it’s guaranteed in the Constitution but please if you have young children do not keep guns in the house and especially not your car. And don’t leave small children like this unattended anywhere. It doesn’t matter how quick you think you’re going to be. Tragedy can occur within a blink of an eye.
Baby Killed By Puppy Unattended For Over An Hour:
2-month-old Zane Alen Earles of Tulsa, Oklahoma was killed by a puppy that was about the same age. The baby was in a swing and was left unattended for at least an hour and a half. The cause of death is not in doubt according to police. The 18-year-old father was not home at the time. The 17-year-old mother and the grandmother were home.
My question to you is does this seem odd or am I being jaded again? How could anyone in the house not hear what was going on at the time?
No charges have been filed and police are treating it as an accident. The puppy was put down.
DNA Confirms Body Was Turner Nelson:
Back in February 37-year-old Stephen Todd Nelson was arrested for throwing his son off the Key Bridge in Baltimore into the Patapsco River. Two weeks ago 3-year-old Turner Nelson’s body was discovered in the river. Just recently DNA tests proved that it was Turner’s body.
Stephen Nelson’s trial is set to begin November 6th.
