Parents let Internet pick their baby's name & get exactly what they deserve

Every couple expecting a child can count on one thing: everyone—from their family and friends to random strangers—will have an opinion on what the baby name should be. It's a tough choice as it is, but it's made even more confusing with every new suggestion you get (just ask my older sister, who is currently pregnant with her first child!). But one Canadian dad recently decided to take the decision out of his hands altogether by asking the Internet to name his baby.

Yup! Stephen McLaughlin created the site namemydaughter.com to ask all web users to vote for their favorite first and middle names.

Abuela's motive for killing 2 grandkids & herself is even worse than you think

A Connecticut grandmother who shot and killed her two young grandsons before committing suicide last year explained her horrific reason for doing so in a note she left to her daughter and son-in-law.

Debra Denison abducted two of her grandkids, 6-month-old Ashton Perry and his 2-year-old brother, Alton, from their daycare last February before killing them and herself in a parked car.
