Bad Boyfriend accused of killing two children of separate mothers

27-year-old Scott Jurewicz of Jackson, Michigan, has been charged with the murder of two children only weeks apart from each other. It was a perfect storm of red tape and bad decisions that allowed the second murder to take place.

Back in March, Jurewucz was living with the mother of Brenden Hartranft when the 18-month-old was unresponsive. He was on life support three days before finally passing. The hospital told Brenden’s mother that Brenden may have died from a spinal injury. Police believed Jurewucz was the only suspect. Prosecutors said they wouldn’t issue an arrest warrant for Brenden’s murder against Jurewucz until they had the autopsy report back. In the meantime Brenden’s mother filed all sorts of protection orders against Jurewucz but he allegedly ignored them continually.

While prosecutors were waiting for the autopsy report Jurewucz moved in with another woman. According to court documents the woman was allegedly warned that she may not want to leave her children alone with him. She is said to have replied that she trusts him with her children and that she believed Jurewucz was being set-up. Then in late May, that woman’s 21-month-old son, Jesse Pepper Jr., was also dead. A day after Jesse’s death prosecutors received the autopsy report for Brenden that he died from blunt force trauma and arrested Jurewucz for his murder.

Unfortunately CPS could not remove the children from the second woman’s home as Michigan law states they can only be removed with evidence of abuse.

Jurewucz has not yet been charged in Jesse’s death yet possibly because prosecutors are awaiting on the outcome for his trial for Brenden’s murder. He is facing a mandatory life sentence in that case.

My description of the stalking that Jurewucz allegedly perpetrated is not even scratching the surface to describe the horror that he is said to have put Brenden’s mother through. I urge you to read the links below to see the extent of the harassment. When someone has had a protection order filed against them, as useless as they can be, it’s usually for a good reason and they’re normally not being ‘set up’. Abusers are usually liars and manipulators as well and are not to ever be trusted.

Here are some tips on what you can do in case you’re being stalked.

Bad Boyfriend beats baby with belt over messy diaper change

Austin Hamilton
Austin Hamilton

24-year-old Austin Hamilton of Tampa, Florida was recently arrested for the beating death of his girlfriend’s one-year-old son, Sincere Williams. A coroner’s report said that Sincere died from blunt force trauma to the abdomen. Hamilton allegedly confessed to police that he struck Sincere ten times with a belt and dropped him on his head after Sincere urinated on him during a diaper change.

I was spared diaper changes since my (step)kids were out of diapers when I got married. However my dad told me that I was quite the surprise geyser when I was in diapers. Considering my dad was not the most calm man I ever knew how much rage did Hamilton have to possess in order to do that to one-year-old child? He would have had to have either taken off his belt or gone to get a belt before striking the child which for most people would have been enough time to give them pause about what they were about to do. Also Hamilton had a child from a previous relationship so I doubt this was a new experience for him.

Sincere’s mother was working at the time of the beating. The couple had known each other for years and she thought Hamilton would be fine with the children since he had children of his own. However Hamilton in the past has been charged with battery, domestic violence and had been investigated by CPS. All charges were dropped but you have to think that sometimes where there’s smoke there’s a raging inferno of a forest fire sometimes.

There’s nothing wrong with screening the background of your significant other. It may save your children’s lives and yours.

Bad Breeder and Boyfriend accused of beating toddler into a stroke

stroke12

Not a whole lot of detail on this story but in 2013 April Koch, 22, and Joshua Grabowski, 22, both of Irwin, Joshua Grabowskia, are both accused of beating Koch’s then one-year-old daughter so bad that the toddler had a stroke. Of course when the couple were questioned they said that the girl, Gabriella Berry, fell out of her crib and hit her head on a coffee table. Once again innocent furniture is being blamed for something that idiots do.

Gabriella is now in the custody of her father Robert Berry but Koch still gets a four-hour a week supervised visit. Here’s Mr. Berry describing what his daughter has been going through…

Gabriella Berry’s father, Robert Berry, said the little girl is taking medication for seizures, sees a therapist up to three times a week and has to wear a brace on her left arm and left leg due to the injuries. He remains thankful she survived the alleged abuse.

“I just have to thank God. That’s really the only way to put it,” Robert Berry said. “I just hope she gets back to normal. That’s the biggest thing.”

I’ve seen adults try to deal with the after effects of a stroke and it broke my heart. I can’t even imagine a child who’s barely two having to deal with that.

Of course the alleged abusers are now expecting their own child. I wonder how long it will take before they have that child taken away from them.

Look, my message here is to abusers, you can’t fool the medical professionals. They can tell when a child has been abused. They are smarter than you will ever be. It just makes it worse for you if you try to hide it from police. Or you could, you know, not hit your kids in the first place you idiots.

I tried finding a charity or something where donations could be sent to help with Gabriella’s medical expenses but I wasn’t able to find one. If anyone finds it please leave it in the comments.

‘A Monster Took Him’

‘A Monster Took Him,’ Family Speaks Out About Suspect Accused Of Beating Infant To Death:

Man jailed after infant’s death:

Said monster, Steven Shaw
Said monster, Steven Shaw

41-year-old Steven Shaw of Coldwater, Michigan, is only 5 feet (1.5m) tall. His small stature hasn’t stopped him from being the worst kind of monster. In the past Shaw was accused of the rape of a 13-year-old girl and choking his own 7-year-old daughter. He escaped justice both times. He’s also been accused of abusing his ex-wife but charges were dropped. Unfortunately, growing up in an abusive household I know how that scenario plays out. Doesn’t mean the abuser isn’t guilty. This time Shaw is accused of killing his girlfriend’s 7-month-old son, Carson Burm.

Shaw allegedly beat Carson to death while the mother was at work. Shaw was also said to have been watching over the mother’s 2-year-old daughter as well. While the mother was at work Shaw is said to have shaken the baby and struck his head against a hard object. The force was enough to snap the baby’s spine.

Of course Shaw tried the usual BS when abusers try to cover their crime…

Medics found the baby on the floor, turning blue and unresponsive. Shaw told the responder he had laid the baby in its crib but moved it to the doorway when it stopped breathing.

Of course the hospital and coroner found out otherwise. Do they think that if they’re story is convincing enough that no one will check? Police also found a hole punched in the wall so take that for what you will.

CPS was said to have visited the home 3 times but did not take Carson away. My friend, who we’ll call CW, works for a state child protection agency. I asked CW why wouldn’t CPS interfere if they’ve been their 3 times. CW told me that a judge would more than likely not agree to have a child removed from a home unless there were visible marks and bruises. At the time Carson was only treated for what one doctor called an ear-infection even though they noted that there was blood in Carson’s ear.

Shaw seems like one of those guys who tries to make up for his stature by trying to be a tough guy, but like most tough guys it seems he only takes his violent rage out on victims smaller than himself. I wonder how that’s going to work out for him in jail.

In the meantime Carson’s father has set up a memorial fund on GoFundMe which can be found here. They are in need of money to help pay for Carson’s funeral. Please give if you can.

If you live in the Coldwater area there will also be a fundraiser for Carson.

Family said a fundraiser will be held on Saturday, June 7 at the Butler Motor Speedway, located at 1031 Clarendon Rd. 49082. The race will start at 7 p.m.

The Bad Boyfriend and the Attack of the Killer Shower

Joshua Howard
Joshua Howard

Police: 2-year-old assault victim dies, mom’s boyfriend remains in jail:

First responders were called to the Portland, Oregon, motel room of 28-year-old Joshua Howard because his girlfriend’s two-year-old son was unconscious. Howard allegedly told police that he was giving the boy a shower and left him alone for a moment when he heard a thump. Except that the police say the boy was dry and had bruising on his head. After the boy was rushed to the hospital it was determined that he was brain-dead and eventually died from his trauma. Doctors say that the boy had multiple injuries including a fractured jaw and skull.

Eventually Howard is said to have changed his story and allegedly admitted to police that he assaulted the child.

First he said he “tossed or dropped” the victim in the bathroom and was upset because the boy had thrown up on the bed and was crying, according to court documents.

Police said he then later admitted to dragging the boy into the bathroom and throwing him with a lot of force into the front of the toilet.

I don’t get why so many violent assholes think that babies aren’t supposed to puke and cry. A number of years ago I was dating a girl who had a son about 2-years-old. I’d be lying if I said I was a fan of the kid but I dealt with it. One weekend we went on a trip and on the way back the boy let a torrent of vomit fly in my new truck it would have made Linda Blair proud. Was I mad? You better believe it. Did I strike a child that wasn’t even mine? Of course not. After being angry for about a second my common sense kicked in and then I was more concerned for the child’s well-being. Even though I wasn’t fond of the kid I didn’t want to wish any harm on him. Luckily it was just car sickness.

Back to the story at hand though the mother of the child allegedly said that Howard had hit the boy before but she didn’t intervene because she thought that would only make it worse. What? That makes no sense whatsoever. Ladies, if a man hits any of your kids he should be fearing for his life because of what you may do. At the very least you call the cops and you get you and your kids out of there. There is no man worth that.

Breeder, Grand-Breeder and Bad Boyfriend accused of Ohio house of horrors where kids were tied up and raped

Bobbi Sue Pack
Bobbi Sue Pack

Child’s email leads to arrests:

Again I have to apologize for sitting on a story that’s over a week old.

In Wheelersburg, Ohio police have arrested 31-year-old Bobbi Sue Pack. her mother 52-year-old Edwina Louis, and Pack’s boyfriend, 44-year-old Juan Carlos Sanchez. The trio have been accused of keeping three of Pack’s four children, ages 11, 9 and 8, chained to their beds and beating them with whips and paddles while also depriving them of food. Sanchez has also been charged with allegedly raping some of the children. None of the charges involve the youngest child, age 2. I guess they must have a sign in their house that says “You must be this tall to be chained, beaten, raped and starved.”

Police were tipped off when one of the kids e-mailed their teacher at their virtual school. Basically the kids were being home schooled and were only released from their bindings to do their lessons on the computer. Once again home schooling is used as a cover for child abuse. Now I’m not saying that all home schoolers are child abusers. I’m not even saying that a majority of them are. However there are too many people who use it as a form of child abuse camouflage. You can see more of my take on that here.

Also I always find it bizarre how groups of people like this, can get together and think that this is an acceptable form of parenting. Seriously, is there some hidden section of Match.com where these freaks find each other?

This also reminds me of a story from almost 10 years ago that took place in Ohio where a family, whose name escapes me at this time, kept their foster kids in a series of elaborate wooden cages. I’m really beginning to think that Ohio and Michigan are battling it out to see who can be the Florida of the Midwest.

It’s too bad these scumbags can’t be shackled top their cots while their cell doors are left open. That would be justice.

Bad boyfriend spice smoker charged in baby rape

Elijah Fernandez
Elijah Fernandez

Suspect arrested in assault on 4-month-old:

Man Arrested for Rape, Abusing Baby:

Police in Albuquerque, New Mexico, have arrested 19-year-old Elijah Fernandez for the alleged brutal beating and rape of his girlfriend’s 4-month-old daughter.

Reports say that the girl’s mother was at a relatives doing laundry when Fernandez violently attacked the infant. When the baby girl stopped breathing he took her to one of his girlfriend’s relatives in the home and originally said that the baby fell off the table while he was changing her diaper. Except when the baby was taken to the hospital that’s not what they found.Medical staff not only found evidence of a beating but that the girl was sexually violated as well.

When questioned by police Fernandez is said to have eventually admitted to the beating saying that he struck the baby after the baby cried and woke him up and he was upset about not having any money. The reason that he might not have any money is that Fernandez and the baby mama are spice smokers. For those of you who are unfamiliar with spice it’s supposed to be a synthetic equivalent to weed but has been known to have some nasty side effects.

The state Children, Youth and Families Department had been previously called to the home but not because of abuse issues even though there is some evidence that this may not have been the first time the baby had been hit.

At last report the baby was in the hospital on life support.

Something that makes even less sense to me than hitting a child is why this fuckstick would rape an infant like that. Was his rage that all-consuming that he felt it was necessary to violate a child in the most sadistic way possible? We can only hope that he gets tenfold back to him in prison.

Bad Boyfriend and Breeder charged with 2-year-old’s nipples being twisted off

The titty twisters Matheson and Kline
The titty twisters Matheson and Kline

Deputies: Pasco man twisted off 2-year-old boy’s nipples:

Pulling of Nipples on 2-year-old Leads to Injury, Arrest:

Police in New Port Richey, Florida arrested 28-year-old Thomas Matheson for allegedly twisting off the nipples of a 2-year-old boy. Let me repeat that in case it didn’t sink in. He allegedly TWISTED THE NIPPLES OFF OF A 2-YEAR-OLD BOY. As in clean off, gone, they are no more.

Matheson was said to have been watching the boy while the boy’s mother was at work. So you would think that when the mother found out that she would be livid and have this scumbag run under the jail. Nope. It was four days before any medical treatment was sought for the boy and that was only because the boy’s grandparents discovered the injuries.

The Breeder, 25-year-old Tina Renea Kline, has also been arrested for failure to seek treatment. She allegedly said that she was trying to give Matheson the benefit of the doubt? Benefit of the doubt? What doubt could there possibly be? You left your son with someone while you worked and when you came back HE HAD NO NIPPLES ANYMORE. According to reports he didn’t even try to hide it from her. What could this lowlife possibly have to offer that would prevent you from taking your son for medical treatment? If he was even that good in the sack you can forget about that now.

Matheson is being held in the Land O’ Lakes jail. He better hope that his cellies like to use all that butter they have there.
