*A man went to great lengths so he wouldn’t get caught for scams that included swindling an elderly man he cared for out of his life’s savings. Alan Knight made folks believe he was quadriplegic – then they discovered him walking around in a grocery store.
According to The Guardian, Knight, 47, spent two years faking seizures that sometimes left him comatose .
But on Tuesday all of his scheming came to a halt as he pleaded guilty to 19 counts of fraud, theft and forgery charges in Swansea Crown Court. Continue reading →
*She just couldn’t let him go, I suppose. Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa was apparently so hung up on a guy she had met online and went out with about six-times, that when he decided to end their relationship, she channeled her inner Santa Claus and tried to get into his house through the chimney.
Unfortunately, she got stuck halfway down.
She probably has mixed-feelings about the neighbor who heard her crying at around 5a.m. and called police. After all, once they rescued her, they took her straight to jail. Continue reading →
*As if the real world life of actor Stephen Collins could get any worse.
Collins soon-to-be-ex wife, Faye Grant, is said to have been holding the threat of releasing audio tape that she secretly recorded at a 2012 therapy session with the actor – who admitted to “molesting and exposing himself” to three girls some decades ago – over his head for quite some time.
And according to Collins attorney, she had her reasons for doing so.
Since the “reveal,” Collins has been in hiding and his career has gone into decline at a rapid pace. He has lost major film and TV roles (namely Mark Wahlberg’s move “Ted 2″ and a recurring gig on “Scandal”) and the UP TV network even pulled “7th Heaven” reruns (I’ll bet the other actors are pissed!), where he famously played a minister. Collins also had the decency to resign from Screen Actor’s Guild board of directors; and he has also been dropped by his talent agency.
Nobody would want to be in this guy’s shoes right now. And with new victims starting to come out of the woodwork, his troubles show no indication of slowing down anytime soon.
But here’s the thing that beats all. Stephen Collins actually filmed a movie in 2013, where he played a pedophile priest! The film has been making festival rounds lately, and the poor director, Jeff Wolfe, tried hard to distance himself from the actor. Continue reading →
*Somebody’s “baby” is headed to jail for a l-o-n-g time.
A 10-year-old boy is being held without bail after he was charged as an adult for killing a 90-year-old woman that his grandfather was a caretaker for. They say the boy held her down with a walking stick and beat her at his grandfather’s Pennsylvania home.
Helen Novak died on Oct. 11.
Tristen Kurilla, the boy, admitted to pinning Novak down on her bed with a walking stick on her throat and punching her numerous times after she yelled at him, according to court papers.
“I killed that lady,” the boy said, the court paper states.
“Were you trying to kill her?” a trooper asked.
“No, I was only trying to hurt her,” the boy replied, according to the criminal complaint. Continue reading →
*She might be your nurse. Hired to check your vitals, fluff your pillow and make sure you’re breathing.
Oh yeah, about that…
Someone should have warned patients on nurse Daniella Poggiali‘s watch not to piss her off because according to claims, she found close to 40 of her patients ‘annoying’ and killed ‘em. Continue reading →
Take one Los Angeles bus rider who decides to take the most serious health crisis the world has seen since god knows when to yell, “I have Ebola!” in the midst of a busload of people, frightening the hell out of them. Add to that, in a city like Los Angeles, where many foreigners and immigrants reside and ride the bus. Even with language barriers – once they hear the word Ebola…Mass chaos!
Well, the police are looking for this fool. And when they find him, he’s going straight to jail!
I just learned that his actions caused the teachers at one Los Angeles County school – obviously with half the story – to tell a classroom of students that Ebola has reached L. A. Now these children, frightened as all get out, have run home to tell – and frighten – their parents.
This is how ish starts.
Be warned: This is not a joke. Do not go around screaming “I have Ebola,” unless you’re ready to go to jail.
*Steven Pratt, 45, walked out of prison a free last man last Friday after serving a 30-year sentence for killing his neighbor in 1984.
Less than 48-hours later, he went home and killed his mother.

An autopsy confirmed her death was from massive blunt injuries to the head, according to a statement by Atlantic County prosecutor Jim McClain.Continue reading →
*Apparently, the word “No,” is hard for some men to take when it comes to trying to get a woman’s phone number.
Detroit police arrested a man who did not take it well when a woman rejected his advances at an event over the past weekend. Instead of moving along, he shot and killed the woman, and five other people were injured in the process. Continue reading →
