Craigslist killing in Kalamazoo

Murder charge in Kzoo Dumpster beating:

Man who was beaten, left in dumpster, dies:

Drew Thorngate

26-year-old Drew Thorngate of Kalamazoo, Michigan, was recently charged with the alleged murder of 30-year-old Francisco Veloz Padilla. Originally Thorngate was only charged with assaulting Padilla but unfortunately Mr. Padilla died from his injuries almost a month after the assault.

According to police Padilla had requested massage services through Thorngate’s craigslist ad but stood Thorngate up. So when the pair finally met it’s alleged that Thorngate beat Padilla with a baseball bat before leaving him in a dumpster. Thorngate is also said to have left the scene and then returned with bleach to clean up the scene and doused Mr. Padilla in bleach also.

Again, it doesn’t matter which side of the craigslist transaction you’re on. If you’re doing any kind of business on craigslist you’re taking your life in your hands.

UPDATE 12/9/2014: Thorngate has been unanimously convicted of first degree murder meaning that he’ll more than likely be sentenced to life when he is sentenced in January.

UPDATE 1/14/2015: Thorngate was sentenced to life without parole.

A Bully’s Guide to Handling a Whining Child

"I'm a Bully Bitch"


Man beat, bit, bound whining 4-year-old

The beast you see above is facing charges after his girlfriend says he bit, beat and bound her 4-year-old daughter.  What in the hell could she have done to deserve such treatment?  Well, she did what most girls at any age do she was whining. 

According to the Louisville, KY Police, Joseph Hawthorne has been charged with assault and carrying a concealed weapon.  After he struck the little girl and made her stand with soap in her mouth for whining.  When she resisted he apparently struck her with a baseball bat, bit her middle finger and bound her with a phone cord.  Gawd Damn! 

The girl’s mother called police.  When they arrested the douche bag, they found a large machete concealed under his driver’s seat.   Good for mommy, for acting and getting big fat bully up there arrested.

Now, I do have to say as a mother to a 3-year-old divalicious little angel, whining is something I am VERY familiar with.  Yes, I admit the sound of whining can get a little grating on a person’s nerves.  I do not think it warrants soap in the mouth, a baseball bat or be bound as way of breaking the habit. 

This guy is nothing more than a big fat bully, he is actually smiling in his mug shot, as if he is proud he can torment a little girl.  Me thinks, he’s a whiny bitch himself!

Thanks to Sarah T. for the tip.


I am the aunt of the girl and her daughter your info is wrong the little girl was whinning he did put soap in her mouth and made her stand in the corner with it in her mouth that fat ass smacked and bite this babies face he squeezed her so hard she had bruising on her stomach of his hand prints he smaked her on the legs with a phone cord and burnt her feet with cigarettes the mom was trying to get him off of her and she grabbed a ball bat he took it away from her and beat the mom with it he also smaked her with the phone cord he he held them in there apartment for two days cause he said he didn’t want anyone to see the baby because he wasn’t going to prison for this he took the mom to the plasma center so they could have some money she told the plasma center what happened and they contacted the police when he came back to puck her up the cops were waiting on him.

Quartet of Pa. Juggalos arrested for murder of another


Four charged in Schuylkill county beating death:

In order we have Shane Roof (Roofie), 20, Curtis Foose (Ice Cold), 25, Jeffrey Gombert (Smokestack), 19, and Andrew Tutko (Chia Pet), 19. Ok, I made the last nickname up. Anyway, they are all Juggalos from the Hazleton, Pennsylvania area. They’ve all been arrested in the death of former Juggalo 21-year-old Anthony Locascio. I say former since he’s no longer drawing breath.

The story goes that Locascio ratted out some his Juggalo family to police on some vandalism charges. Locascio and an accomplice allegedly cut the brakeline of a car that belonged to a girl they knew.

So in retaliation the four allegedly lured him out into the woods with the promise of two pounds of weed, beat him to death with baseball bats and then removed his clothes. That’s basically the way you sometimes get dishonorably discharged from a Juggalo clique.

Give props to police and District Attorney for refusing to comment on the Juggalo connection. Too many small town police forces act like Juggalos are the second coming of The Crips when most of them don’t even have the IQ of a dog biscuit.

And to the Juggalos out there, if you want people to stop thinking you’re a gang, stop acting like one.
