OSBI looks to Facebook to help solve Carina Saunders’ murder

OBSI looks to Facebook to help solve Carina Saunders' murder

Carina Saunders

FOX25 from Oklahoma City is reporting that the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has submitted search warrants to Facebook in order to obtain information that they hope will lead to the killer of Carina Saunders.

In particular the OSBI is looking into three individuals. The first is 41-year-old Judy Roberts who is believed to have possibly been on the way to the casino with Carina before she disappeared. Roberts is also believed to have crossed the Mexican drug cartels in some way. The next person is Kyle Savage. Savage is to believed to have sent a threatening Facebook message to someone in Carina’s family that allegedly said “I’m going to bury you next to Carina.” Savage can’t or won’t explain why he sent this message before Carina’s body had been found. Lastly, the OSBI seem to be interested in Kenny Richards, who investigators believe prostituted her before her death.

None of these people are Jimmy Lee Massey Jr. and Luis E. Ruiz, who were previously arrested for Carina’s murder, but charges were dropped against them due to lack of real evidence. However the charges were dropped without prejudice, so they could be arrested again if the evidence supports it.

I hope this will lead investigators to bring Carina’s killer, or killers, to justice. It doesn’t matter what Carina may have done in her short life, but she did not deserve to be brutally murdered, with her dismembered body stuffed in a duffel bag.

If anyone has any information about Carina’s murder please contact the OSBI Hotline at 1 (800) 522-8017.

Don’t leave a comment on Facebook

nofacebook

In today’s online world Facebook is king. As a content creator I always have to keep Facebook’s quirks and idiosyncrasies in mind whenever I’m crafting one of my blog posts. Its popularity and ubiquity can not be ignored. However I think I speak for many content creators when I say if you like something that we’ve created and want to comment on it DON’T JUST LEAVE A COMMENT ON FACEBOOK. A lot of us have websites, or YouTube Channels or what have you where we’ve poured out heart and souls into our creations only to have people only comment about it on Facebook and not where are creation lies.

I get it. Everyone you know is on Facebook and that’s fine however there is no rule that says you can’t leave Facebook every once in a while. A lot of my posts have had some great discussions on Facebook but on the website it looks like no one cares and do to the fickle way that Facebook likes to close accounts those discussions could be lost forever. Not to mention that Facebook may not be around forever, just look at MySpace and Facebook is only one sparkly animated gif background away from becoming MySpace.

It’s ok to leave Facebook every once in a while. After all isn’t a walled garden just a pretty prison?

Trench addresses the Facebook Confederacy of Dunces

getoverit2

I know Facebook isn’t the apex of intelligent political discourse but I was shocked at the amount of people, who I thought were smarter than that, defending the confederate flag. Yes, I know it’s not the official flag of the confederacy, stop being pedantic, and while you’re looking up the definition of pedantic you may want to look up the definition of eponym. So in this year 2015 Anno Domini, or Common Era if you will, let’s take a look of why the traitor’s rag is indefensible. That last part may be a bit of a spoiler.

African Slavery

The Civil War was about slavery. Deal with it. You can take your “War of Northern Aggression” state’s rights bullcrap and stick it up your Stonewall Jackson. The state’s right to own slaves maybe. Slavery was even a cornerstone of the confederate constitution.

Just for grits and giggles let’s say that the war was not about slavery. That still brings us to our next point.

Sedition

The symbolic start of Civil War was when confederates fired upon the Federal Garrison at Fort Sumter in South Carolina. By modern standards if a governor of any state decided to use his or her state’s resources to violently attack a federal military base would that not be looked upon as the act of a traitor? That was rhetorical question, yes, yes it would.

On the losing side

The last time I checked confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered to Union General Ulysses S. Grant after the Battle of Appomattox. So by flying that flag you’re celebrating the failure of an inferior army. You may as well fly the white flag of surrender in its stead.

So now that the Civil War is over let’s jump ahead about 100 years into the future, the 1960s to be precise. What did the flag stand for then?

Segregation

In the 1960s the flag came back into prominence, for lack of a better term, in Southern states as a symbol of their opposition to the equal right’s movement. To put it more succinctly it was a state government sponsored endorsement of racism. So it should come as no surprise that it’s been adopted by…

Hate Groups

klanIf the flag had any redeeming qualities at this point, which it didn’t, it lost any kind of legitimacy when it was widely adopted by hate groups like the Klan. Someone said to me on Facebook today that men carry out these actions but flags don’t. What that person doesn’t realize is that the flag was being used by those cowards as a symbol of fear and intimidation, some may even call it terrorism. This unfortunate jackass at right is what the flag has come to stand for.

However this is the United States, you have the right to fly that flag as much as you want and I support your right to do so. It will be an indicator on which moronic troglodytes I need to avoid.

Kik, Facebook and Snapchat: Ohio man hits the creeper trifecta

Man arrested on sex charges involving girls:

Man Meets Girls on Social Media, Arrested on Sex-Related Charges:

Brian Scott Sibley

Brian Scott Sibley

Zippy the Pinhead’s even more brain addled cousin is 27-year-old Brian Scott Sibley of Vinton, Ohio. He was recently arrested by Scioto County Sheriffs for allegedly having sex (child rape) with an underage girl.

Police received a tip from the mother of a 15-year-old girl who said an older man was communicating with her daughter and her daughter’s 11-year-old friend through Facebook, Kik and Snapchat. Great, a creeper who employs redundancy measures. Further investigation revealed that not only did Sibley allegedly solicit explicit photos from the girls, which police say he received, but he also is said to have had sex with one of the girls. I want to say I hope it wasn’t with the 11-year-old girl but I don’t want the other girl to be the victim either.

Police posed as the girl and convinced Sibley they were going to have sex with him but instead was arrested at the arranged meeting place.

As I’ve said before parents, it’s not just your kids’ computers you have to monitor but their cell phones as well. Unfortunately you can’t watch over your kids shoulder while they’re using their cell phones away from home but you should be checking their phones for these apps and their attached friends list regularly.

NC man gets 50 years for MySpace rape

Statutory rape conviction gets man 50 years in prison:

Steven Lee Odom

Steven Lee Odom

Don’t worry folks. The crime took place in 2009. No one uses MySpace anymore.

Anyway, 26-year-old Steven Lee Odom was sentenced in a Rowan County, North Carolina, court recently to a minimum of 50 years for the statutory rape of a 13-year-old girl when Odom was 21. Creepily, Odom lived across the street from the girl and would watch her get off the school bus. He then began messaging the girl through MySpace and Facebook. That led to Odom having sex (child rape) with the girl.

So why such a long sentence? At the time of the crime Odom was already a registered sex offender. Odom had pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent liberties with a child in neighboring Stanly County. He only received probation for those charges.

A re-offending sex offender? I’m shocked and amazed since they usually tend to be such trustworthy people said no one ever.

Oh well, see you in 2064 if you’re lucky.

California Kik Kreeper extorted pre-teens for pictures

California Kik Kreeper extorted pre-teens for pictures

Man uses threats to get young girls to send him nude pictures:

‘Sextortion’ suspect set for freedom:

Child porn, exploitation suspect ordered to home incarceration:

25-year-old Brian Caputo of Arvin, California is a Grade-A scumbag, allegedly. He’s accused of posing as a young girl on Facebook, Yahoo Messenger, and Kik as a young girl in order to gain the trust of other young girls on these platforms. He would use aliases like Giavanna Derann, Catness Love and Melissa Harpson to convince girls from ages eight to 13 to send him nude photos.

Let’s stop right there for a second. While I’m sure the parents of the victims are horrified over what has transpired no eight-year-old needs to be on any of these services. Not even under the supervision of a parent. Secondly is this a thing that teen or teen girls send naked pics to each other? It sure as hell wasn’t in my day by cracky.

Once Caputo would receive any of these pictures then he would blackmail his victims into sending him more pictures or he would make the pictures he already has public. He tried blackmailing a 12-year-old girl from El Paso, Texas, into sending him pics and if she didn’t he would release the pictures of her 11-year-old friend. Instead the girl went to her parents who in turn went to police.

Caputo is not only accused of possessing child porn but trading the pictures he received as well. When questioned by police Caputo tried claiming that whoever was doing it was stealing his wi-fi.

So you think a predatory scumbag like Caputo would be kept under the jail while awaiting trial. Nope. He’s currently under house arrest at his mommy’s house where his underage sister was forced to move out. Does anybody want to lay odds he gets in trouble again before going to trial?

This assclown intrigues me so I’ll be keeping a close eye on this story.

UPDATE 3/13/2014: The courts have come to their sense and have revoked Caputo’s house arrest. He’s now being held without bond.

UPDATE 5/28/2016: Caputo recently pleaded guilty to child porn charges and is scheduled to be sentenced on August 8th.

Facebook predator charged with molesting 11-year-old girl

Facebook messages lead to arrest of accused molester:

Michael "Not Macho" Camacho

Michael “Not Macho” Camacho

37-year-old Michael Camacho of Orlando, Florida, has been charged with allegedly molesting an 11-year-old girl. The crime itself is said to have taken place at a community pool but Camacho was caught when the girl’s mother found messages from Camacho in the girl’s Facebook.

The mother of the victim was going to cut off her daughter’s Facebook privileges for bad grades, when she noticed something disturbing. An older man was messaging her daughter that she was “cute and getting cuter,” the police report said.

Like I said the crime did not take place on Facebook but how many times do I have to tell people 11 YEAR-OLDS DO NOT BELONG ON FACEBOOK. You might as well leave your kids’ bedroom windows open with a sign that says ‘pedophiles welcome’.

UK Facebook creeper really just wanted to go bike riding

Facebook groomer Gareth Oliver jailed over 300-mile abuse attempt:

Gareth Oliver

Gareth Oliver

For some reason I’ve become fascinated with what child predators give as an excuse when they’re busted. I guess it stems from the To Catch a Predator series when the alleged offenders all gave almost the same answer. Most of them send they were just there to hang out with their underage target while other s said they were there to teach their target the dangers of meeting strange men on the internet. Not surprisingly police didn’t believe any of them. Especially the ones that showed up with booze and/or sex toys.

Which brings us to the story of 21-year-old Gareth Oliver from Newcastle in the UK. Oliver was grooming some underage boys on Facebook then made the 300 mile trip by bus, of course it was by bus, to Kent where his victims resided. He was trying to get the boys to go camping with him but one of the parents became suspicious. At the time of his arrest Oliver had nine condoms on him. When asked why he made the 300 mile trek Oliver said that he was there to go BMX riding with the boys. That’s the first time I’ve heard that one. It’s a little more specific than just hanging out but still not even remotely believable.

Oliver was sentenced to six years in prison and a lifetime on the registry.

Facebook loosens restrictions on teens. What it means to you.

Facebook loosens privacy policy on teens’ posts:

FaceBookF

This past week Facebook changed their privacy policies for teens between the ages of 13 and 17. Before, all their posts and information were only visible to their friends list. Now it can be viewed by the world at large. I emphasize can be because this doesn’t automatically mean that everything ever that your kid has posted on Facebook will all of a sudden be made public. What it does mean that as a parent you’re going to have to be even more vigilant now of your kids’ behavior on Facebook.

Let’s face it, teens are stupid. Yes, even yours. When I was a teen I was stupid too and so were you. While teens’ Facebook profiles will still be friends only as default you just know some idiot teen is going to set their profile to public. Ideally you should have the e-mail address and password used for your kids’ Facebook. However, if you’re one of those ‘trusting’ parents *rolls eyes* here is how you can tell who your kids are sharing their Facebook posts with. You really should have their sign in information though because even if your Facebook friends with your kids they can still hide posts from you or anyone of their choosing.

Facebook says they’re doing this to give teens more freedom but in reality it probably has more to do with advertising. Also Facebook never had a predator problem as much as MySpace did. With these new ‘freedoms’ they’re giving teens that’s all about to change.

Florida Facebook predator hits almost all the cliches

Facebook Advances to 15- and 16-Year-Old Girls and Rendezvous Lead to 30-Year-Old’s Arrest:

Michael King

Michael King

The love child of John Cena and a potato over there is 30-year-old Michael Lee King of Bunnell, Florida. He’s been accused of allegedly soliciting underage girls for sex on Facebook and used almost all the online predator clichés in doing so.

According to the Flagler County Sheriffs, King, using the alias of ‘Jones’, allegedly told a 15-year-old girl on Facebook that he was 27 and when she protested about the difference in age King allegedly said that not only did he just want to ‘hang out’ but also told her that “Age is only a #.” He then allegedly tried to lure the girl out by promising her $500 and buying her a bunch of stuff. The only thing that he didn’t try was telling her that he could get her a modeling gig.

Eventually the girl told her parents who told the cops who arrested King at a pet store.

This girl had enough sense to tell her parents. You may want to make sure that yours do too.
