The UK SUN reports,

Dalya Saeed, 35, is accused of stabbing Bilal Miah, 31, with a carving knife and trying to pull out his intestines after the pair had romped.

A court heard part of Mr Miah’s small bowel was cut from his body and thrown on to the bedroom carpet.

The taxi driver, who had remarried, told a jury he desperately tried to push his entrails back into his stomach after being attacked by his estranged wife at her home.

Saeed denied charges of attempted murder and wounding with intent when she went on trial at Birmingham Crown Court on Monday

Mr Miah told the jury he was attacked by Saeed at around 10pm on October 19, 2015 after going to her flat in Moseley, Birmingham.

He said the pair had argued about custody of their daughter before they ended up back on the bed.

Giving evidence, Mr Miah added: “Suddenly in the blink of an eye, and I didn’t see the knife, she stabbed me twice in the belly.

“I can only assume the knife came from either under the bed or the pocket of her dressing gown.

“My intestines were out, everything was out and she was grabbing hold of them, trying to pull them.

“She broke one of them and threw it on to the floor but I managed to put the rest of them back in my belly.”

The article continues,

Prosecutor Adam Western told the jury: “The cuts were so severe part of his small bowel ended up on the carpet.

“She caused his injuries. Her intention was nothing less than to kill him.”

The court heard Saeed told police she attacked her ex-husband in self-defence after he raped her.


Johnathan Cruz, referred to his alleged 4-day killing spree in Indianapolis as a ‘purge’ and makes reference to the popular movie,Independent reports…



On May 12, both Billy Boyd and Jay Higgenbotham were found dead in the street – one with a gunshot wound to the head and another with multiple gunshot wounds, according to police.

Three days later, the body of Jose Alberto Ruiz was found in his car with a gunshot wound to the neck.

Within the same time frame, other seemingly random crimes were occurring in the area, including a robbery, intimidation and criminal gang enhancement.

Police believe there may have been a gang connection..

According to additional information about Cruz, he was keeping his mother updated about the violence with live updates!

Court documents allege that he had no remorse for his murders. In the documents, he is quoted telling a girl he held at gunpoint, “Another body wouldn’t mean anything.” He even videoed some of his alleged crime spree on his phone, including one where he shoots a gun out of a car vehicle. He did not kill the girl, only targeting men.

“Better go on Face book and watch da Videos of me shootin people,” Cruz wrote in a text to his girlfriend. “I Purge every night now.”

According to court documents, Cruz’s mother texted him asking what he was doing, and he sent back a screenshot of an article about the murders. He then allegedly said he would get a new phone so authorities wouldn’t see what he just sent.

The killings were called a ‘Purge’ but the only real connection thus far being made is by officials, who say that he was inspired by the film — but how? Inspired because of using the word Purge? Inspired to do similar crimes? ..

More on that will undoubtedly be released.

But it also gives the media good fodder to attack the horror genre..

METRO gives examples of how other movies inspired real life killings, such as CHILD’S PLAY 3 and AMERICAN PSYCHO, and even gives a  worthwhile notation to the song HELTER SKELTER by the Beatles..




I read MISSING 411 in about one day. That’s not to say David Paulides’ book was a lackluster effort at entertainment, but just the opposite. I could not put it down, with each page offering thought provoking tale after another about missing people, cases of the extraordinary, and unbelievable stories about people who vanished. There were those picking berries—lots of people picking berries as a matter of fact—and other strange lapses of normalcy with people quite literally vanishing and often being found near water, in water, and without clothing. The book went back to the 1800s for some stories.
A series of stories and books came after the success of MISSING 411, where Paulides focused on certain areas of the United States.
The most recent project, however, may be the most unnerving. Paulides fast forwards through time and brings us to the modern day in MISSING 411: A SOBERING CONINCIDENCE. And through that effort, perhaps, some of the most horrid and bone chilling tales are told through a series of stories of people—mostly young men—missing. The same connection, it would seem, is evident: Water. And it’s water some would even say that bind those stories of ancient days to that of the modern era..

Some interpret meaning to what Paulides does not say. Though he has been known for work and research into Bigfoot, he never made any hint or suggestion that his stories of people going missing in forests or parks had anything to do with Bigfoot. He actually made an effort to say that he did not know. Likewise for the newest set of accounts. The non fiction work has nothing at all to do with aliens. At least not in the sense that Paulides is using alien abductions as the cover for the truth behind why people are going missing and how they are seemingly eerily connected in the conclusion.

Paulides appeared with George Knapp Sunday night on COAST TO COAST AM. Knapp has previously hosted Paulides for a series of shows that make your arm hair stand on end. This program was no different, with Paulides giving real records to listeners about a series of mostly young males who go missing, often after drinking at bars, and then get founds weeks later in a relatively fresh state of decay in water. The cases are often ruled suicide. They are also coupled with weird particulars, like phone calls going dead, phones themselves going missing. Two of the weirdest perhaps are the stories of Shane Montgomery, who went missing in 2014 in Philadelphia, and Todd Geib.

Another focal point of Paulides: The strange case of Elisa Lam at the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles.. This story is one that I have long paid attention to and written about. It’s plain weird. Not only is the video of Lam acting bizarre on the elevator creepy, but the actual story of her death is even worse. Found in a water tank, almost bloodless, with the death being ruled accidental. Of course logic must be put to the side when you consider not only the tanker being locked and too tight to enter ,but also the fact alarms would be set off if someone tried. After TB scare in LA, Paulides pointed out,a kit was used to test water called LAM ELISA. That’s not a joke. It’s also plain uncanny..

I listened with great interest to the Sunday program.

I have long researched this story and followed a number of groups that are hell-bent on finding answers—answers that have proven elusive to say the least over the year.

One common theory heard from those who try to defy the unexplained with an explanation: Smiley Face Killers. There is a theory that some of the deaths of young men found near water also are accompanied by a symbol or sign etched into trees or other landscapes in the shape of smiley faces. Though law enforcement have never given widespread credence to this theory, there are a number of Facebook groups that do, some of which include members of the police community. Additional to that, there are tales across the NET on places like REDDIT and other forums where people actively spread what they purport as true stories of people in vans attempting to abduct younger men at bars—the focal point of the Paulides group studied in his newest book.

That said, it is notable to point out that Paulides does not harbor answers on his shore, but simply sets the boat of truth to sea. You can decide for yourselves.

 I spoke to George Knapp, the host of COAST TO COAST, and award winning journalist, about the subject matter.. He clearly is as disturbed as his listeners.

Knapp told me that it’s “likely the most compelling mystery of modern times.” I think he’s on to something. At face value, the deaths and disappearances are normal and mundane. Man walks into a bar.. drinks.. leaves intoxicated. Drowns. But it’s not that simple, especially when you consider so many aren’t drunk in any typical sense, and know a sense of direction. But yet somehow, within seconds, are lost not to be found again until in a source of water, floating dead.

Knapp told me this the entire story “might turn out to be a not-so-recent sequence of events.”

“David has now shown that it is not merely a rural phenomenon, that it happens in cities and towns as well.”L

Knapp said, “I suspect that if the records can be found ,it will turn out that this has been going on throughout recorded history.”

There is a very human and emotional connection many have to this entire story. People that go missing are sons, daughters. They are children. They are siblings. They are family. Friends. And they are human beings with emotions and fear, happiness and sadness. And they go missing.

There are quite a few people who would settle into the “it won’t happen to my family” mentality. Then it does. And when it does, I would only imagine the life changing personal apocalypse it would incur.

As Knapp said to me, “Something is harvesting humans. It’s like fishing, and we’re the fish.”

Russia was shocked this week by the arrest of a 68-year-old woman being dubbed the babushka serial killer..

Tamara Samsonova murdered a 79-year-old companion for not washing tea cups. It gets worse.. she then cut up the body and dumped parts around town..

And worse: There is video of her dragging body parts from closed circuit TV–something police have enthusiastically embraced as the best evidence that the old woman did the crime.

And not just that crime.

RT followed the story and has an extensive report about the babushka wearing murderer.. This from the report:

The search there produced evidence suggesting that this was not the first violent crime committed by Samsonova. Further investigation led to a discovery straight out of a horror movie.
The investigators found a detailed diary she had kept for some years in three languages, the report said, in which Samsonova accounted for a dozen murders since the late 1990s.

And more:

Neighbors have described Samsonova as an “misfit.” It was revealed that she had previously been treated by a mental health clinic on more than occasion, and been diagnosed with schizophrenia.
Once detained for Valentina’s murder, she initially said that the victim set her up and that another neighbor, a health worker by trade, assisted her in the killing, which was proved to be a lie.
Samsonova also told police that she graduated from St. Petersburg ballet school, but in reality she used to be a bellhop in a hotel.
Police say that before killing her victims she used to sedate them with powerful drugs to immobilize them.

Various other names are being used to describe the the killer–the media enjoys dubbing someone something, in this instance creativity is taking hold. Like this: The ‘Granny Ripper.’ The Babushka Yaga. Or this.. Granny the Ripper. And countless more.

While some may be having obvious fun with the age of the criminal, the murders seem as horrific as anything conducted by a killer less her age. Brutal and inescapable.

And now with a diary, police  believe it’s proove enough that she committed countless other crimes beyond the pale.

One neighbor told RT reporters that this entire scenario was even worse than a horror movie.
Funny she said that. The first thing I thought was that some creative movie maker out there was going to make a horror film based on this.

Which in itself seems tragic and gross just as much as the crime that may inspire it..

Ohio man arrested after daughter’s decomposing body found in crib

This could be one of the most disgusting and horrific stories I have ever read about .. ever heard.. This creature who posed as a human not only left the innocent young child’d corpse rot in a crib, but he also   told police he put bags of garbage in his young daughter’s room to mask the smell of her decomposing body was granted sole custody of the toddler during a divorce last year. …

Police are investigating another infant death from 2013. A pattern emerged, perhaps.. 

This is beyond logic.. Beyond humanity.. beyond all of it.

I read a fascinating article–thank God I am not the victim here or it would not be fascinating at all–today about a family in New Jersey fleeing their new ‘dream home’ because of frightening letters they were receiving from someone who called himself ‘The Watcher.’  

According to the article, the previous owners never told the new ones about this strange person.. 

A lawsuit has been filed.


As CBS2’s Valerie Castro reported, the large six-bedroom home in Union County is being watched – according to a lawsuit filed by its new owners.

They paid $1.3 million for their “dream home” in the picturesque town of Westfield. They claim the previous owners were aware of a man who calls himself “the Watcher,” but they never said anything.

“I would be pretty upset if I bought a house and found out that the previous owners knew about it,” said Robert Hagen of Westfield.

Since moving in, the owners said they have received numerous letters from the mysterious person. “The Watcher” claimed the home “has been the subject of my family for decades,” and “I have been put in charge of watching and waiting for its second coming,” Castro reported.

The new owners have several children, and other letters asked, “Have they found out what’s in the walls yet?” and “I am pleased to know your names now, and the name of the young blood you have brought to me,” Castro reported.

The bone-chilling letters were enough to send the new family packing. The incident was so unnerving that Westfield Mayor Andy Skibitsky addressed the issue at a Town Council meeting Tuesday night.

There have been frightening ghost stories, such as the Amityville Horror, supposedly chasing a family from their abode. I don’t think I have ever heard of a story quite like the one linked here.. 

This sounds like the plot of a movie..
People are scarier than ghosts..
