Master T from Missouri wanted to breed future sex slaves with 16-year-old girl

Master T from Missouri wanted to breed future sex slaves

35-year-old Timothy Gilmore, of Cape Girardeau County, Missouri, has been arrested for allegedly posting child porn online of a 16-year-old girl from Fort Wayne, Indiana, but the charges don’t even come close to telling the whole story. It’s not made known in the article how Gilmore met his victim, but he allegedly used the pervert trifecta of Tumblr, Kik and Snapchat to communicate with her. According to authorities, Gilmore made the girl refer to him as ‘Master T’ while he referred to her as ‘slave’. This may indicate to some people that this was a consensual BDSM relationship, but not only did Gilmore have another woman, who the victim was made to address as Mistress, order the teen around, but Gilmore allegedly wanted the girl to live with him when she turned 18 so he could breed future sex slaves with her. The child porn charges stem from when Gilmore is said to have posted images of the girl on Tumblr. Along with Kik, Tumblr is a popular destination among child porn traders.

What is it with Missouri and guys who want sex slaves? Ok, that’s actually unfair to Missouri, but this story reminds me of Edward Bagley Sr. of Lebanon, Missouri. He took in a 16-year-old runaway and made her his personal sex slave. He not only traded her out to his friends but he sewed her vagina shut as a punishment. Sadly, that could have been the life of Gilmore’s victim if he had his way. He may be only looking at 15 years behind bars but he deserves much more.

Ind. woman victim of Skout sextortion scam

Ind. woman victim of Skout sextortion scam

First off, let me say that I really don’t like using portmanteaus like ‘sextortion’ or ‘sexting’ in a headline. Unfortunately these phrases have become so commonplace I’ve no choice but to use them in order to grab someone’s attention.

Anyway, in the past I’ve posted about how online predators will try to extort children for explicit pictures of them over social media. While it’s more commonly reported with children this kind of blackmail can happen to adults too.

For example an Indiana woman was on the dating and social app Skout. She had begun chatting with a man who called himself ‘John Alani’. The man asked the woman for a nude pic and she obliged. As you can probably surmise that’s when things started going to hell. It didn’t help that she also sent him a picture of her driver’s license and social security number. In case you didn’t know by now those are two of the biggest red flags when it comes to being scammed. The man then started threatening her saying that he now had her kids’ names and threatened to have her sent to jail if she didn’t pay him over $3,000. He said that he had other women sent to jail. The victim refused and the man said that if she didn’t wire the money to Nigeria he would have her arrested for murder. Nigeria is the other big red flag when it comes to online scams since it’s the birthplace of such internet scams as the 419 scam.

While social networking apps and sites repeatedly want us to use our personal information for their gain I still say that you should be very guarded with who you choose to share that information with. You never know what you’re opening yourself up to.

Ind. man accused of rape and attempted Backpage trafficking of teen

Patrick J. Davis

Patrick J. Davis

29-year-old Patrick J. Davis of Fort Wayne, Indiana, is accused of allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl he met through Facebook and possibly trying to prostitute the girl on Backpage. I’ll explain the ‘possibly’ part in a minute. But first let’s see what Davis, aka Alan Davis, is said to have done after convincing the girl to run away…

On March 28, Davis picked the girl up at her residence and deactivated the girl’s Facebook account and destroyed her cellphone. Davis then took her to the house of a woman who had been involved with prostitution and had girls working for her.

That’s not terrifying at all for a 14-year-old girl except when it is, which is all the time. And just for shits and giggles I guess Davis woke the girl while she was sleeping so he could rape her in the kitchen of the house. Unfortunately, rape is a common tactic used by pimps in order to intimidate their victims to remain working for them.

Now the reason I say he possibly was looking to traffic the girl on Backpage because Davis and his cohort were allegedly going to use a prepaid credit card to place the ad, except Backpage is no longer allowed to accept any credit card payments. Makes me wonder if Davis was either behind the times or using another website. Either way this scumbag needs to be put away for a long time.

Another nursing home employee Snapchats a naked resident

Kara DeVaux

Kara DeVaux

24-year-old Kara DeVaux is accused of allegedly recording a nursing home resident naked on Snapchat in Michigan City, Indiana.

According to court documents the video depicted an 85-year-old dementia patient naked in the shower while the staff sprayed her with water. Witnesses to the video told supervisors they heard DeVaux’s voice in the recording saying “look at this crazy bitch she doesn’t like taking showers.”

As is usual with Snapchat stories the video didn’t quite disappear and someone was able to take a screen grab of the video. There was also allegedly a picture of the woman on Daveaux’s Snapchat that had the caption “She f***ing hates showers. S***.”

As I’ve mentioned before not only is this blatant degradation of some of the most helpless members of our society but it’s also a blatant violation of the medical privacy laws in our country known as HIPAA. As someone who has worked in the healthcare field since the advent of HIPAA I can tell you the penalties for violating HIPAA are no joke. They can result in substantial monetary fines and jail time. Whole Davaux has been charged with felony voyeurism and misdemeanor sale, distribution or exhibition of obscene matter she may want to be more concerned about what may happen if the feds decide they want to pursue violation of HIPAA charges.

Kik kreeper says “I’m not him” while being arrested for soliciting 10-year-old

Lance Kyer

Lance Kyer

30-year-old Lance Kyer of Indianapolis was recently arrested for allegedly soliciting a 10-year-old boy for sex over messaging app Kik. That’s not a typo, the kid was ten-years-old. Don’t get ahead of me just yet.

The boy’s mother had contacted police after finding explicit messages on her son’s Kik account. Police then posed as the boy in order to arrest Kyer. What happens next is the stuff of bad 80’s sitcoms…

When the investigators arrived to meet Kyer and identified himself as the police, Kyer responded, “I’m not him!” and tried to get away. He was quickly taken into custody.

Like the police would go “Ok, sorry. Enjoy your night”. That would almost be funny if we weren’t talking about a real predator here…

During the Kik exchange, the investigator maintained he was 10 years old and asked Kyer to confirm his age. Kyer said he was 30 years old. Kyer then asked when they could meet; the investigator asked Kyer what they would do if they did meet up. Kyer responded that “we can watch movies (and) maybe fool around if you like,” according to court documents.

So basically this 30-year-old man was asking a 10-year-old boy to Netflix and chill. Not only that but Kyer allegedly admitted to police that he had planned on travelling to Ohio to see another boy.

Now on to what you’re all screaming at your various screens of various size. What the hell was a 10-year-old boy doing on Kik? I’m glad that a parent was aware enough to detect what was happening but no 10-year-old needs to be on Kik especially since it’s rife with, you guessed it, sex offenders and pedophiles. You may as well just leave your kid duct taped to a school crossing sign at that point.

Suspect charged with kidnapping Indiana girl he met on Kik

Christopher M. Cortez Jr.

Christopher M. Cortez Jr.

22-year-old Christopher M. Cortez Jr., of Whiting, Indiana, is accused of allegedly kidnapping a 14-year-old girl that he met on Kik. Cortez is said to have posed as a 17-year-old on Kik using the screen name of Jack Skelton/whocareshonestly. He told his victim that he could give her a ride home from school. When Cortez picked her up he allegedly threw out her cell phone and drove her to Chicago. She was discovered at a gas station where a customer noticed that she was in distress.

In case you needed another warning to check your kids messaging app accounts this would be it. God only knows what would have happened if she wasn’t found before any bodily harm could be done to her. In case you’ve missed the last few dozen times I’ve said it Kik is infamous for being one of the tools of choice for pedophiles and sex offenders.

By the way, this toolbox is out on bond. Sleep well Indiana.

It looked like someone had stomped on the child

The Wagoners

The Wagoners

Back in the days of the Bad Breeders website (click here to find out why it’s no more) we used to post a lot of what we called ‘killer furniture’ stories. These were stories where abusive ‘parents’, or Breeders as we called them, would blame their child’s blunt force trauma injuries on things like falling out of bed or off of high chair. Others would say their child bumped their heads on coffee tables or various other child height furniture. The problem with these stories was that the children’s injuries were so massive that the bed they fell off of must have been 3 stories high or the child was running at mach 1 when they struck the table. This is going to be one of those stories and so much more.

Here’s what a forensic pathologist had to say about the death of 1-year-old Zoey Lee Wagoner of Greenfield, Indiana…

A forensic pathologist found Zoey had suffered multiple blunt force traumatic injuries before her death. She had bruises and abrasions on her face and scalp. Her lips were bruised. Blood vessels had burst in her eyes and neck. Her liver was lacerated, and her intestines and pancreas were bruised. Old breaks in both arms were still healing.

The pathologist told police it looked like someone had stomped on the child.

Zoey’s Breeders, Matthew Wagoner, 31, and Jessica Wagoner, 32, have been charged with murder in her death. Matthew Wagner allegedly told investigators that Zoey fell off a bed. Again with that type of trauma the bed must have been 50 feet high. However that’s not the worst part of story. Police allege that the Wagoners concocted a scheme to try to throw off suspicion on them because they knew the injuries would result in criminal charges. Part of it was that Mr. Wagoner took Zoey on a walk to a nearby Circle K so he could claim she was fine then. He had to pass a hospital to and from Circle K and never once thought about getting help for his daughter. Then the plan was for Mr. Wagoner to call Mrs. Wagoner at work to make it appear like an accident happened. I bet she was just happy to get time off from work but I digress. However, even this act of evil isn’t the worst part in my opinion.

You see, the Wagoners weren’t even supposed to be living together. He was under investigation for allegedly molesting her 9-year-old daughter and the daughter’s friend. The Department of Child Services had barred them from being together because of it. But hell, why should a little molestation come between such a happy couple?

After their arrest The Wagoners both said that the other had anger issues…

She told police that Matthew has a temper and had hit her before, and that she didn’t trust Matthew with Zoey.

Matthew said Jessica had a temper of her own, and that she was “very aggressive and hits the children across the face.”

He said he saw Jessica punch Zoey in the stomach so hard it made the child gasp for air.

It always astounds me that evil can find evil like this.

As I’ve said way too many times before, if you’re a child abusing scumbag you’re not smarter than medical professionals and you’re not smarter than police. They will find out what you’ve been doing so how about not beating your child instead. –

You don’t have to be an abuser. There are resources out there for you. If you are in need of help you can reach out to the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453)

Thanks to Brigette for the tip.

UPDATE 6/6/2015: The defense for Matthew Wagoner have requested a psych eval for their client which reports say is usually the first step in seeking an insanity defense.

State Senator wants death penalty for school shooters in Indiana

indianadeathchamber

Indiana State Sen. Brandt Hershman recently introduced a bill to the Indiana legislature that would make a school shooting where victims are killed an aggravating factor that would allow prosecutors to seek the death penalty. Sen. Hershman says he was influenced by the shooting of Andrew Boldt by Cody Cousins at Purdue University in 2014. After pleading guilty and showing no remorse Cousins was only sentenced to 65 years. Sen. Hershman believes this would be a deterrent to would be school shooters.

“By including school shootings on the list of qualifying factors for the death, I hope it will deter future tragedies and allow for the most deplorable criminals to receive punishment to the fullest extent of the law,”

While I admire Sen. Hershman’s stance on the matter and as much as I am a firm believer in the death penalty, ultimately this will not deter school shooters if history is any indicator. First off this would not apply to suspect’s who are minors as the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that even minors who have been charged as adults can not be executed. Secondly, most adult school shooters are of the mindset that they will not live to be apprehended. Cho Seung-Hui, Stephen Kazmierczak, and Charles Carl Roberts IV, all committed suicide before they could be taken in. Even Cody Cousins killed himself in prison. None of these men were rational individuals so trying to deal with them on a rational basis would not have deterred them from their respective atrocities.

I think a better solution to deterring school shootings is making mental healthcare in our society less stigmatized and more readily available but even that’s not a perfect solution.

Bluffton Breeders burn baby’s body

Barnes and Arnold

Barnes and Arnold

21-year-old Breanna J. Arnold and 30-year-old Zachary S. Barnes of Bluffton, Indiana, have both been arrested in the death of Arnold’s 3-year-old son, Owen Collins. The couple and an unnamed teen were using drugs when they discovered that Owen was dead in his bedroom. Rather than call police or an ambulance, you know, the right thing to do, Barnes and the teen allegedly put Owen’s body in a cardboard box, took his body to a wooded area and set the box on fire after dousing it with nail polish remover. In the meantime someone called police asking to do a welfare check on the residence.

Very few things will bring a community together like a missing child. Strangers will drop whatever they’re doing to help in the search for a missing child. What a missing child search also does is bring in multiple law enforcement departments to help investigate. In this case it was the Marion police department that found the woman who gave Barnes and the teen a ride into the woods and she of course must have told them about the box and she also led them to Owen’s body. Investigators allegedly got admissions of guilt from the teen and Barnes. The teen has been arrested as well.

Now the drug they were using has not been identified but according to some reports meth making materials were found in the home. While the cause of Owen’s death has not yet been determined Barnes allegedly admitted to police that they would put ‘dope’ in the kids’ bottles and ‘watch them have fun’. Are you for real? Is this what meth does to your mind that you think it’s funny to give your kids a drug that has been a blight in most poor rural areas? Not to mention what makes you think that your tweaker ass is smarter than multiple law enforcement agencies. Did you think that reporting Owen missing was somehow going to absolve you of your actions?

I really need to start working on that formula for meth that sterilizes tweakers.

In case you have no common sense here are the dangers of having kids in a meth lab.

Thanks to Brigette for the tip.

UPDATE 5/12/2015: It was revealed recently that according to the autopsy Owen died from blunt force trauma to the head and no drugs were found in his system. No word yet on what caused his fatal injuries.

UPDATE 6/17/2015: Barnes has pleaded guilty to the murder of Owen Collins. Under the term of the plea deal he’ll more than likely be sentenced to 50 years and have to serve at least 75% of that sentence before being possibly eligible for parole.

UPDATE 7/6/2015: The teen that’s allegedly involved with this atrocity has been charged as an adult. His name is Zachary Barker.

UPDATE 8/9/2015: Zachary Barnes was sentenced to 50 years in the death of Owen Collins.

UPDATE 9/2/2015: 17-year-old Zachary Barker has pleaded guilty to abuse of a corpse and meth dealing,

Alleged serial killer met victim through Backpage

Afrikka Hardy

Afrikka Hardy

19-year-old Afrikka Hardy is believed to have been the victim of alleged serial killer Darren Vann of Gary, Indiana. She was working as a prostitute out of nearby Chicago and was advertised on Backpage. However just because she was a prostitute doesn’t mean she deserved to be strangled to death by a serial sex offender who has allegedly confessed to killing at least 7 victims. She had family and loved ones who cared about her.

This is more blood splashed on the pages of Backpage since they facilitated the murder in my opinion but they’re not going to stop unless they’re forced to stop. Congress needs to get off its ass and update the archaic Communications Decency Act before there are more Afrikka Hardy’s. Backpage isn’t going to stop on its own while there is blood money to be made.

UPDATE 10/31/2014: Vann has pleaded not guilty.

UPDATE 4/27/2015: Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Vann.

UPDATE 3/8/2016: Vann has been charged with five more murders after leading police to the bodies of five additional women that he allegedly killed.

UPDATE 5/31/2016: Vann’s trial, which had been scheduled for July 25th, has been rescheduled for an unknown date. A hearing for the new trial date is set for August 19th. The defense requested the rescheduling stating they need more time to prepare.
