This story is enough to make any jogger abandon the idea of outdoor runs and invest in a treadmill that can be used within the safety of the home. Melissa Millan, a married mother of two and senior insurance executive at MassMutual in Springfield, Connecticut, was stabbed while jogging on a bike path near her Simsbury home last Thursday evening. At around 8:04 p.m., passing motorists spotted the body of the 54-year-old Millan laying on the ground and quickly dialed 911. She had been stabbed repeatedly in the chest but showed some signs of life. Unfortunately, Milan died shortly after being transferred to St. Francis Hospital. Relatives and friends say Millan was a seasoned triathlete who regularly jogged along the path where she was viciously attacked. Her death has been ruled a homicide, and a police investigation is underway but, thus far, no arrests have been made and no murder weapon has been found.
The inquest into the death of a pregnant mother and her 3 children last April has begun in the UK. Fiona Anderson, 23-years-old, drowned her 3 children, put them to bed and then jumped off of a parking garage in Lowestoft and killed herself. Normally, I would be outraged but, instead, I am extremely saddened.
Ms. Anderson was only 23. Her children, Levina, three, Addy, two, and 11-month-old Kyden had each been bathed, drowned and put to bed with their teddy bears. Clearly, she was overwhelmed. She was a single mother with no prospects and no help. Motherhood is hard, even with two parents around.

Clearly, Mexican president Ernesto Pena Nieto is living in his own planet and causing everyone to give him the political side-eye. While his country is in uproar over the devastating violence against the forty three students who went missing in Guerrero, Mexico, Nieto had better things to do--like buy himself a luxury mansion worth millions of dollars. This feels like a plot line out of a satirical telenovela, which is ironic since his wife is actress Angélica Rivera. The photos are enough to make you want to start a protest of your own.
In Melbourne a father, Charles Amon Mihayo, did the unspeakable. He murdered both of his toddler daughters.

Instead, he waited and plotted and planned to exact his revenge until last week and he killed the bastard.
A photo has finally surfaced of Derek Ward, the 35-year-old man who decapitated his own mother, 66-year-old Patricia Ward, on Tuesday evening, kicking her head into a Farmville, New York, street before jumping in front of an oncoming train and taking his own life. In the photo, Derek appears almost angelic, no sinister energy behind his gaze. And, while many have been quick to portray Derek as a monster, those close to him insist he was simply a troubled man fighting a mental illness and that, due to some systematic hiccups regarding our medical system, he was not receiving proper treatment. His actions may have been monstrous, but he himself was no monster. If anything, he, too, was a victim.
Though Terrell Cowherd hadn't seen his estranged 11-year-old daughter Anahlia Cowherd in years, something told him to Google her name Tuesday morning. A search for Anahlia's name turned up a series of disturbing blog posts written by the young girl, the last had gone up Monday evening and was titled, "Help…Me…" In it, the preteen reveals her grandfather threatened to take her life. "He actually threatened to KILL my family," she writes. "Right now I'm in my mom's room, the door locked, my dog close, my brother here, my Grandpa somewhere, my Grandma is not home. My mom is coming…I'm so scared." Confused and disturbed, Cowherd contacted the Seattle Police Department to tell them of his findings. However, it appeared they had their own piece of troubling news to share with him. Anahlia was dead. Her grandfather killed her.
