Savannah Harding was only 9 years old when she died at the hands of her grandmother Joyce Hardin Garrard in Attalla, Alabama in 2012. Joyce made little Savannah run for three hours straight without stopping as a punishment for lying about eating some candy. A few hours later, the little girl had seizures, collapsed and died because of the severity of the punishment. Today the 49-year-old abuela is about to face the Grand Jury and Judge Billy Ogletree is making sure he selects carefully the jurors in order to get justice for Savannah.
Child abusers should not be able to get around the justice system like this. Samantha Starnes, now dubbed "the mom from hell," was arrested after pleading guilty to the assault and endangering the welfare of her 11-year-old son. Last month, the Pennsylvania boy showed up to a community police station with over 20 bruises and welts on his body. When asked what happened, the kid told authorities that his mom would beat him with a belt and punch him "for not doing his chores." Just terrifying ...
A twisted morgue employee from Hamilton County in Ohio has admitted to having sex with approximately 100 corpses in his care. Kenneth Douglas explained to authorities how he'd climb on top of the dead women and pull his pants down. He also blamed drug and alcohol abuse on his actions stating that when he did neither, he wouldn't touch the victims. The whole idea is so nauseating to me and the sick thing is his wife even alerted Douglas' bosses to what was going on and they did nothing about it!

A group of Riker's Island Correction officers learned the hard way that nobody--and I mean NOBODY--comes between Latinos and their telenovelas!
A group of 68 Riker's Island inmates lost their telenovela-loving minds Monday night when a newly implemented 9 p.m. curfew forced them to miss their favorite soap operas. "They went nuts because they are being locked up at 9 p.m. and missing all of their favorite TV shows," a jail source told the Post. "It's completely out of control." Pues, I can't say I didn't see that coming. I learned the hard way that you never, ever try to come between a Latino and their soaps. Like, ever! My abuelita once threw a chancla at me when I made the grave mistake of asking for more food during her sacred telenovela time. Hey, you live and you learn.
On Tuesday, the body of 62-year-old Sheila von Wiese-Mack, an American from Chicago, was found stuffed inside of a suitcase in the trunk of taxi cab on the resort island of Bali. Sheila von Wiese-Mack and her 19-year-old daughter, Heather Mack, arrived at the St. Regis in Bali on Saturday. Then on Monday they were joined by Mack's 21-year-old boyfriend Tommy Schaefer. Something horrible happened between the three because Mack and Shaefer have been arrested in connection to the death of von Wiese-Mack, which makes total sense since it was Mack and Shaefer who put the bloody suitcase with Von Wiese-Mack's body in the trunk of the taxi to begin with and then promptly disappeared.
You are not going to believe the convoluted story they told once they were found.

An Indianapolis woman was arrested Friday night after coworkers found her newborn baby bound and gagged, and stuffed into a warehouse trash can.
Briana Holland told police she knew what she was doing when she wrapped toilet paper over her newborn baby's face and inserted a tampon applicator into its mouth a mere moments after she had given birth to him inside of a warehouse bathroom. "I know what the results would probably be," the 22-year-old warehouse worker admitted to police officials. "It would probably die." Incredibly, Holland reportedly returned to work soon after she attempted to murder her son. Como si nada.
