Indy man dies a month after craigslist/OfferUp shooting

Indy man dies a month after craigslist/OfferUp shooting

Back in January, 40-year-old Chad Laplante and a friend went to buy a video game system off of either OfferUp or craigslist. The pair was instead lured to a robbery where Mr. Laplante was shot. He spent close to a month in the hospital before finally succumbing to his injuries.

According to Laplante’s family

“He got a fungus because he laid open too long in the hospital. He had eight surgeries, three heart attacks and three failures of life.

The suspects are still at large and police are asking for the public’s help.

If you have information that could help investigators in the Laplante case, contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at (317) 262-TIPS. If your confidential tip leads to an arrest, you could receive a cash reward of up to $1000.00. If authorities confiscate a weapon during the arrest, the reward would increase by hundreds of dollars.

I know I sound like a broken record, kids, ask your parents, but the old rules don’t apply anymore. You can go to meet someone off of craigslist or OfferUp in public and with a friend and still end up dead. My advice is to not use either platform, but if you insist on doing so, meet the other person at your local police station. While it’s not a guarantee of safety, it’s better than just meeting someone on the street.

Adam Russell Hegyi

30-year-old Adam Russell Hegyi, of Crown Point, Indiana, is facing federal prosecution for allegedly threatening and extorting an underage girl over social media. Hegyi is said to have used (deep breath) Omegle, Kik, Snapchat, Skype, Instagram, Facebook and FaceTime. What, no Friendster?

All kidding aside, Hegyi is one scary dude. After he allegedly coerced the girl into sending explicit photos, he threatened the girl’s family if she did not send more.

“If you don’t want any of this to happen, you need to send more pics without your face in them. You have 60 minutes starting now,” Hegyi said in a March message on Kik.

He is then said to have sent the pictures of the victim to her parents and claimed to have also sent them to students at her school.

That’s only the tip of the iceberg. I urge you read the linked article to see how mentally disturbed this assclown was.

I think it goes without saying, you need to know who your children are talking to on social media. Check all the accounts.

“Explain to him in the next lifetime why he dead”

"Explain to him in the next lifetime why he dead"

Mekielle Pullins

In case you ever wondered if monsters exist in our world, read the story about 22-year-old Mekielle Pullins of Indiana.

Back in July, she triggered an Amber Alert when she allegedly abducted her own kids, ages 2, 3, and 7. Luckily, they were found to be unharmed and have been placed with the Indiana Department of Child Services. It’s what she did while she was on the run that’s been grabbing headlines.

Pullins is accused of allegedly abusing one of her kids while recording it and sending the videos to the kid’s father. Investigators say Pullins covered her son’s mouth and nose and recorded the child struggling to breathe. That’s not even mentioning the messages she sent to the boy’s father…

“Bout to call police so they can come get his body.”

“Explain to him in the next lifetime why he dead.”

“I’m stabbing (the child) 2 night I hate him.”

“I wish u never gave me him. I don’t love him or you. U used me for a baby and money then left me on the side of the road and left kids n shelter with not one call in weeks.”

She even allegedly threatened to molest the boy and sell him.

It’s one thing to be mad at your child’s father for being a deadbeat dad, it’s another to choke your own child to get back at the father. We all know how hard it can be to try to get child support out of someone who refuses to pay it, but if a dad won’t pay, an innocent child shouldn’t have to pay in his blood.

However, she just wasn’t mad, she was violently insane. Hopefully, the kids can find a better life either with their father(s), other relatives, or through the foster care system. She should never be allowed near a child or see the light of day ever again.

Cop run over by LetGo thieves in amateur sting attempt

Cop run over by LetGo thieves in amateur sting attempt

Johnson and Hayworth

An Indianapolis woman had her cell phone stolen after trying to sell it on LetGo. In an attempt to try to catch the thieves she placed another ad, then told the people she believed robbed her to meet her at a local hospital parking lot. The woman informed hospital security to be on the lookout for these men. Among one of the security guards was an off duty police officer. For some unexplained reason, the security guards went along with this plan.

When the alleged thieves arrived, the security guards tried to apprehend them. Instead, the suspects fled in their car, striking one of the security guards. That guard happened to be the off-duty officer who fired at the fleeing suspects. Fortunately, his injuries were minor, but his shot hit the windshield of the suspects’ car. The suspects didn’t get away for long as they messaged the woman again saying they were still interested in buying the phone. This led to the arrest of 29-year-old Christopher Johnson and 33-year-old Brandon Hayworth.

Even though this comedy of errors led to the arrest of two alleged thieves, this woman’s plan could have had disastrous results. Only by the grace of God was the off-duty officer not killed. Hospital security guards are not your personal police force. If you were to have something stolen in this manner, contact police and let them coordinate any attempts to recover your property or identify the culprits. If you take the law into your own hands it could get you, or somebody else, killed.

Own your WalMart outrage like a hero

Social media had their collective panties in a bunch when the following picture was shown of a WalMart in Evansville, Indiana.

Of course when someone puts the images of guns and school together you can’t help but think of school shootings, but is this really worth our outrage? Of course this wasn’t done intentionally by WalMart but you’d think the store personally went to school children and handed them guns the way some people are overreacting. For all we know it could have been done by some customer who thought they were funny, and to be honest, I did chuckle a little, but I can have a dark sense of humor at times.

What we should be outraged about is how some parents refuse to check on their kids activities, especially when there are guns in the home. We should be outraged about parents who refuse to get their children psychiatric help because the parents think they’ve somehow failed as a parent if they admit their child has a problem. We should be outraged about the generations of children we’ve raised to be emotional marshmallows whose first response is to turn to violence when things don’t go their way for whatever reason. But no, let’s rage at WalMart instead since they’re obviously the reason behind school shootings.

Georgia man drives over 800 miles to try to rape Facebook friend

Georgia man drives over 800 miles to try to rape Facebook friend

Kung Bik Cem

19-year-old Kung Bik Cem, of Tucker, Georgia, was recently arrested for allegedly trying to rape a woman that he met through Facebook, but the story is much more scary than that. Cem, and a friend, drove from Jacksonville, Florida, to Johnson County, Indiana where his female Facebook friend was attending a wedding. According to Google Maps, that is close to a 900 mile trip, clocking in at roughly 13 hours.

Cem reportedly approached the woman at the wedding and took her cell phone in order to get her into his car. Once in his car he drove off with the woman. She grabbed the wheel, causing the car to go off the road on the local interstate. It was then that Cem is said to have thrown the woman in the back of his car and tried to rape her. He allegedly told the woman that he was going to impregnate her so she would have to marry him. Luckily, if that word can ever be used in stories like this, they were found by an Indiana State Trooper before Cem could rape his victim.

I have a few questions. First off, who the hell thinks in 2017 that if I make you have a rape baby you have to marry me? Cem told police that the stealing of a potential bride was customary in his culture. What culture is that and when was it customary, the Mongol Dynasty maybe? Secondly, what was the friend’s role in all of this? Did he or she agree to Cem’s deranged plan or just think it was a road trip? Lastly, how was this emotionally stunted ignoramus able to function in society before making his road trip of rape?

Be careful who you friend on Facebook, you never know who is going to be a psycho stalker.

Trio of Backpage child traffickers to get sweetheart deal with no jail time

Trio of Backpage child traffickers to get sweetheart deal with no jail time

Brandi Beauchamp, Ashley Breedlove, Ciera Beauchamp

I originally posted about Brandi Beauchamp, Ashley Breedlove, and Ciera Beauchamp here. Ciera Beauchamp was the legal guardian of a 17-year-old girl who she allegedly prostituted on Backpage. Beuchamp’s sister, Brandi, and her girlfriend Breedlove, are said to have quit their jobs just so they could all collect money from this girl. The victim is said to even have contracted an STI thanks to her ‘guardian’ turning her out on Backpage.

You would think that child traffickers and child abusers like that would have the book thrown at them, but it’s not so. The prosecution has offered them a deal where they will see no jail time if they plead guilty to promoting prostitution. The most they’re looking at is two years of house arrest.

What kind of message does this send when three women were making money off of one 17-year-old girl who was forced to be violated by strangers for money? For that matter what message does that send to the victim where the suspects will only receive ankle bracelets for all the abuse she endured? This isn’t justice, it’s a mockery of what this girl had to withstand. The even sadder part is that this is what Backpage has wrought. There are multitudes of girls just like this still being turned out on Backpage and the legal system hardly seems to care.

Alleged Tinder rapist stopped by his co-workers

Alleged Tinder rapist stopped by his co-workers

Jeffrey Scott Vanherreweghe

24-year-old Jeffrey Scott Vanherreweghe of Crossville, Alabama, was working with a construction crew in Huntingburg, Indiana, when he met a woman on the mobile dating app Tinder. The pair allegedly had consensual sex before Vanherreweghe (How do you even pronounce that?) became violent and raped his victim at the hotel where the crew was staying. It took his co-workers to get the key for the hotel room door for the woman to be able to make her escape. Vanherreweghe is only being held on $15,000 bond.

I hate to be the old man yelling at clouds, but back in my day, in the olden times of the internet, not only did it take a long ‘getting to know you’ process before meeting someone, even then there was a huge danger of meeting them in meat space. Now it seems that with apps like Tinder, users seem to be meeting people that day without any serious vetting process.

If I was in the dating pool today, even if I was in my 20s, I doubt I would use an app like Tinder. Not only does it seem to focus on the superficial but I imagine it attracts many of the same creeps that haunt places like the personals section of craigslist. A real relationship doesn’t begin with a swipe.

Indy Backpage rapist ‘heard voices in his head’

Indy Backpage rapist 'heard voices in his head'

Fort, Reaves, and Kilgore

Just because Backapge has closed down the adult sections doesn’t mean there isn’t a backlog of crimes involving the website. Just before the new year in Indianapolis 16-year-old Korey Reaves is not only accused of allegedly raping a Backpage prostitute, but another woman as well.

Police say that Reaves and 19-year-old Anthony Fort planned on robbing the prostitute at her hotel room after finding her on Backpage but during the robbery Reaves is said to have raped the woman. When a female security guard went to investigate the room Reaves allegedly raped her as well.

According to the women, Reaves became increasingly irate during the assaults and demanded money, saying he needed a “stack” for himself and Fort.

After apprehension Reaves wasn’t acting like such a tough guy. While in custody he wrote letters of apology to his victims claiming that…

…he “has a problem and often hears voices in his head that forces and compels him to make very bad decisions and choices.”

Again with the voices. I still have to ask why the ‘voices’ never tell someone to do charity work?

Anyway, Reaves has been charged as an adult and 18-year-old Myia Nicole Kilgore has been charged as an accomplice. Kilgore was reportedly a getaway driver for the duo.

While all this was happening Backpage was still getting paid.

Brandon M. Kolc

22-year-old Brandon M. Kolc of Gibraltar, Michigan, is accused of raping a 15-year-old Indiana girl that he met through Facebook. According to the victim she thought Kolc was 19 and lived in Illinois. The first time they had sex the victim says it was consensual, once in a church parking lot. Then the rape was said to have occurred in front of a casket factory where Kolc allegedly raped and choked the victim after she refused to consent.

By now this shouldn’t even be an issue anymore as most parents are already on Facebook, and should know how to keep tabs on their kids. If not you’re way behind the curve, and need to educate yourself on how these things work. Know their logins, know their passwords, know their Facebook friends and inspect their devices for multiple accounts. You are the parent, you can trust your kids all you want, but do you trust the strangers out there who are looking to prey upon your kids?
