Though authorities are still in the very early stages of their investigation, they are viewing the case as a homicide.
When I first heard about this tragic story out of St. Petersburg, Florida, my heart just broke. I couldn't believe that a parent could be so careless over the life of a child they helped bring into this world. A 25-year-old father, John Jonchuck Jr., was stopped by a cop at a Tampa Bay bridge in Florida when he rushed over to the passenger side of his car, pulled out his 5-year-old daughter and then threw her over the bridge without a second thought. And then he just fled the scene!
What a mess! The lives of the members of the Kornegay family from White Springs, Florida are completely destroyed after a horrific murder took place in their home. Mother and father left their teenage children in charge of their younger siblings, who are 11 and 3 years old, when they left for a road trip. It's not clear what happened, but local authorities charged 15-year-old Misty "Ariel" Renee and her 11-year-old sister Nicole with the murder of their 16-year-old brother. The girls fatally shot their older sibling with a gun concealed in their home. Authorities charged the girls with murder, the parents with neglect and placed the toddler in state custody.
Justice has finally come for María de los Ángeles Pineda. The evil woman allegedly responsible for ordering the disappearance of 43 protestors in the city of Iguala, Mexico is finally behind bars. Back in November, Pineda and her husband Jose Luis Abarca went into hiding in Mexico City, but were eventually caught and arrested. The question was whether there was enough proof to convict the fallen politicians. A judge ruled that Pineda and her husband were the "probable masterminds" behind the murder of the innocent college students. They have been charged with organized crime and money laundering. The beauty of it all was finally seeing the "first lady of murder" in a jailhouse outfit looking like a defeated animal.
An anguished husband in Dover, New Hampshire, shot his wife then turned the gun on himself within a local hospital at around 6 a.m. on December 30, only minutes after detailing his murder-suicide plan in a Facebook post. Mark Lavoie's actions were not motivated by jealousy, rage, or contempt, making this no run-of-the-mill crime of passion. The reason for the murder-suicide will surely shock you.

Mexican psychologist Maria Alejandra Lafuente Caso used her husband Allan Carrera Cuellar's cellphone to send text messages to his friends and family so they believed he was on a business trip after she had gruesomely murdered him.

She is claiming that her husband repeatedly beat her. She now faces life in prison.
On Sunday night, 33-year-old Lindsey Blansett of Kansas walked into her 10-year-old son's bedroom with a rock and knife to kill him ... and kill him she did. She stabbed him in the chest and then beat him repeatedly with the rock. Why would she do something so horrible? According to police who arrived on the scene at around 11:45 p.m. that night, she thought her son, Caleb, "would be better off in heaven." This mother murdered her own child to spare him from the world. What?! This makes no sense at all.
My heart really goes out to the mother of Chicago twin boys, Demario Bailey and Demarcio Bailey. Christmas is only a week away and this poor woman will be spending it with only one of her 15-year-old sons.

How devastating is this?
