Another craigslist pooch-screwer arrested in AZ

Terry Wayne Haupt

Terry Wayne Haupt

We haven’t had one of these stories in a while but sheriffs in Maricopa County, Arizona, have arrested 52-year-old Terry Wayne Haupt for allegedly wanting to have sex with a female dog through craigslist. Sheriff Joe Arpario stated that Haupt’s ad on craigslist was very graphic. I don’t know why but for some reason this is a hot button issue for Sheriff Joe as his department has made numerous arrests for what I like to call craigslist pooch-screwers.

Like I said this is nothing new for craigslist as they have a long history of its users looking for ‘K9′ in the casual encounters section .

Another Snapchat arrest, another teacher

snapchat

Seriously, what is it with Snapchat and teachers?

Anyway, this time the suspect is 29-year-old Todd Christopher Gibson of Landsdale, Pennsylvania. He was arrested by police in Towamencin for allegedly Snapchatting pics of his junk to a then 17-year-old female student in August of last year. Police reports also say that when the student said that he would be caught Gibson supposedly said he did not care and that Gibson repeatedly asked the girl to come to his home.

Gibson has been suspended by the school but no word on if that was with or without pay.

Abdullah Alkadi

23-year-old Abdullah Alkadi, who attends Cal State-Northridge, has been missing since Wednesday after selling his car on craigslit. Police have found his car but the new owner says they have nothing to do with the disappearance.

Alkadi is of Middle Eastern descent and stands at 5 feet, 3 inches. He weighs 110 pounds.

Police say Alkadi was last seen wearing a blue shirt, blue jeans and beige shorts.

Anyone with information as to Alkadi’s whereabouts was asked to call Detective Carlton from the LAPD’s Missing Persons Unit at (213) 996-1800 or 1-877-LAPD-24-7 during non-business hours or on weekends.

I’ll post more details as they become available however I hope I can delete this post after he’s found safe.

RSO charged with craigslist abduction again after victim bites back

Nathaniel Lamb

Nathaniel Lamb

Tub of Goo over there is 30-year-old Nathaniel Lamb of Charlottesville, Virginia. I’ve posted about him once before about a year ago here. Back in 2013 he was charged with allegedly raping a prostitute he had met through craigslist. He was on the sex offender registry for a 2004 conviction of using a computer to solicit a minor. You would think that with a track record like that he wouldn’t be roaming free. In reality, not so much.

On 9/5 Lamb was arrested once again for allegedly abducting a woman he had met through craigslist

However when she was handcuffed, Lamb began touching her sexually, then forcing her to perform oral sex. That’s when, according to her statement to police, she bit down while doing the act.

Oh yeah, I forgot about the part where she bit down on his junk. Not only good for her but it allowed police to arrest him at the hospital while he was being treated for junk bites.

Unfortunately he was out on bond after a witness to his previous crime failed to attend his bond hearing. At that point the prosecution could either only drop the charges or let him out on bond. That’s a loophole that needs to be closed. For all we know there could be victims that have yet to come forward that he accosted between now and then.

I hope he needed stitches, without anesthetic.

The latest craigslist killer is only 16

Nathaniel Vivian, the shooter's alleged accomplice

Nathaniel Vivian, the shooter’s alleged accomplice

28-year-old Danny Zeitz was shot and killed in Sandy Springs, Georgia, on Friday while trying to sell a video game console on craigslist. Zeitz was allegedly shot by a 16-year-old girl who authorities have not named in yet another robbery gone bad.

While the girl’s boyfriend, 20-year-old Nathaniel Vivian, struggled with Zeitz over the console the girl is said to have fired a shot which struck Vivian in the hand before striking Zeitz in the chest killing him. The couple was in a car at the time of the shooting and had the girl’s 16-month-old baby in the back seat.

Gamer friends of Zeitz set up a GoFundMe page in order to help pay for his funeral expenses.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family.

If you’re doing any kind of business on craigslist no matter where you may be the odds are pretty good that you may end up being robbed which has led to deaths in the past. I would recommend not doing business on craigslist but if you insist on doing that insist that the transaction take place during the day in front of your local police department. You can never be too safe when dealing with these kind of transactions.

Craigslist killing in Houston

craigslistbanner

This past Thursday night 28-year-old Saul Cifuentes was shot and killed by someone posing as a craigslist seller in Houston, Texas. The victim thought he was meeting someone in order to buy a video game console, instead it turned into a robbery gone wrong. As of yet no suspect has been arrested.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.

As I’ve said before since craigslist has such a low-level of entry (free) anyone can place an ad. Not to mention that craigslist users have this notion of anonymity it makes it a haven for all sorts of criminal activity. It’s not worth whatever great deal you think you’re getting.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family of the victim.

Chardon High shooter escapes from prison (CAPTURED)

T.J. Lane

T.J. Lane

Out of all the school shooters who are currently serving prison sentences T.J. Lane is probably the last one you’d want walking around free. In 2012 Lane opened fire inside the cafeteria of Chardon High School in Chardon, Ohio. WHen the smoke cleared 3 students were dead. Lane eventually pleaded guilty to murder charges and was sentenced to life without parole. At his sentencing he removed his short which revealed a t-shirt underneath that he had scrawled the word ‘killer’ on it then went on a vulgar tirade about his victims.

“This hand that pulled the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates the memory. Fuck all of you.”

Lane never showed any remorse and has been kept in isolation.

Tonight reports are coming from Lima, Ohio that say Lane was one of three that escaped from the Allen Oakwood Correctional Institution in Lima, Ohio.

At last report Lane was at large along with another inmate, 45-year-old Clifford Opperud, who was serving time for kidnapping and aggravated robbery. Neither man is said to be armed and both are wearing prison uniforms.

“All available troopers from the Ohio State Highway Patrol have been joined by Allen County Sheriff’s deputies and local area law enforcement in establishing a perimeter and searching the area. A Patrol helicopter with advanced infrared detection equipment has been deployed and is engaged in the search as well. The public is encouraged to report any suspicious persons or possible sightings by calling 911.”

With any luck Lima police or the Highway Patrol will catch this coward before he has the chance to harm anyone else. I can see Lane wanting to hurt more people if he were to get his hands on any kind of weapon.

Thanks to Steve Huff for the tip.

UPDATE 9/12/2014: Lane was apprehended five hours after his escape still in the area near the prison. Luckily no one was injured in his apprehension. No details yet on exactly how Lane was captured but I hope he resisted arrest.

Former WI teacher charged with Snapchatting his junk to students

Brandon M. Amato

Brandon M. Amato

Whenever I hear tech journalists and other denizens of the Silicon Valley echo chamber talk about Snapchat they always say the same thing. “Snapchat isn’t used for sexting. It’s used by kids to send goofy pictures to their friends”. That may be true but it’s not stopping predators from sending inappropriate pictures to your kids.

For those of you who may not know Snapchat is a smartphone app that allows users to send pictures to each other that supposedly disappear after 10 seconds. However that isn’t always the case.

Getting back to the predator thing today’s contestant is 24-year-old Brandon M. Amato of Madison, Wisconsin. He’s a former high school teacher who allegedly sent pictures of his junk to two underage female students of his former school through Snapchat, one that 17-years-old and another that was 16.

Amatao is not the first teacher profiled on this site that was caught using Snapchat inappropriately. BY my count he’s the fourth. Not a huge number but why does Snapchat seem to be popular among teacher creepers?

Unless it’s through some school approved channels no student should ever be social network friends with a teacher. It gives a very bad image of the teacher.

Craigslist killing of WV teen

Ernest M. Roach

Ernest M. Roach

36-year-old Ernest M. Roach of Racine, Ohio was recently charged with the murder of 16-year-old Ericka Brown of Cross Lanes, West Virginia. The pair had allegedly met on craigslist for sex but unlike a lot of stories I’ve posted in the past in this case the victim is said to have posted the ad.

On Aug. 3, Brown allegedly posted to the site the ad “seeking men – w4m I’m looking for $$ ill (sic) do anything for it, I am a girl,” along with a telephone number.

Roach allegedly paid his victim twice for sex.

Ericka Brown’s body was found on the banks of the Ohio River wrapped in plastic and attached to a cinder block.

I have not yet seen a motive mentioned yet for the murder. I wonder if he was unaware of her true age and then freaked out when he found out she was 16. 16 may be the age of consent in both Ohio and West Virginia but once money changes hands it becomes child prostitution. Not to mention that Roach allegedly took her across state lines into Ohio.

Lastly I can’t stress this point enough, parents please keep tabs on your kids internet activities whether or not this means on a computer or a cell phone. As I’ve said many times in the past parents really are the only real line of defense between internet predators and your kids.

UPDATE 9/20/2014: The feds have dropped charges against Roach so the state of Ohio can go forward in prosecuting Roach for murder.

I don’t know if Roach would be eligible but Ohio does have the death penalty and they’ve executed someone as recently as this year.
