Woman didn’t like to hit child because “he’s white and it leaves marks”

Woman didn't like to hit child because "he’s white and it leaves marks"

Rocla Aceneth Tovar Calderon

Police in Calvert County, Maryland, responded to a home after they received complaints a 3-year-old boy had marks on him. The complaint came from teachers at the boy’s Head Start program. (Let’s hear it for teachers.) When the police and CPS approached the boy’s mother about the marks, 40-year-old Rocla Aceneth Tovar Calderon was said to have admitted to the abuse. She claims the boy is too wild for her to control but tries not to hit him because, in her words, “he’s white and it leaves marks.” She also allegedly claimed to hit the boy with a shoe because using her hands cause blood clots. The reason she claimed she couldn’t control the child was “because he’s 3”. That’s only the tip of the iceberg too. I recommend reading the entire article from Southern Maryland News Net linked above.

While Calderon was arrested and charged with abuse there is a sort of silver lining to this story…

The Child Protective Services Worker prepared a safety plan for Calderon, which was signed by both parties, indicating that she was not allowed to hit the child with any objects. The plan also indicated that in-home services would be provided by CPS to assist Calderon with the child’s behavior and with cleaning her home so that it is sanitary.

From what Lady Gray tells me, these kind of resources are available in most states. So hopefully, we can get this message out to people who will now reach out to their state agencies before hitting their children.

35-year-old cosplayer cruises cons and Instagram to prey on girls

35-year-old cosplayer cruises cons and Instagram to prey on girls

Derrick La Marr Jones

(Story broke 5/3/2017)

35-year-old Derrick La Marr Jones, of Catonsville, Maryland, was arrested for allegedly trying to lure a 16-year-old girl from Ashburn, Virginia to Baltimore through Instagram, while using the screen name of ‘Toxicnfektion’. He is also said to have sent an Uber to the girl’s home to bring her to Baltimore. Authorities say that this girl may not be his only victim.

Investigators say that Jones has traveled all over the country to various comic conventions, and the like, in order to try to pick up underage girls. He would use the aliases of Kanovski Zan-Lee Vulgen, Kano or Lee, when telling girls at these cons that he was anywhere from his late teens to early 20s. He also claimed to be a cosplayer, a martial artist and a pro-gamer. Jones is said to have attended conventions in Orlando, Albuquerque, Phoenix, Flagstaff, Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Salt Lake City.

Police believe he may have more victims…

Anyone with information regarding the possible identity of the suspect is asked to call Detective J. Suess of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-777-0475 or you may submit a tip through the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office app, which can be downloaded on iTunes or Google Play.

There are few things as sad as a middle-aged man trying to act like a young person for any reason. Doing so to try to pick up underage women is even sadder. Not to mention that he bragged about being a martial artist. I bet he even tried to convince them he was an MMA fighter. If he wasn’t so potentially dangerous he’d be almost laughable.

Maryland pair accused of prostituting 16-year-old girl on Backpage

Maryland pair accused of prostituting 16-year-old girl on Backpage

Andre Lamar Russell

(Story broke 6/6/2017)

28-year-old Andre Lamar Russell and 23-year-old Heather Lynn Harding are accused of allegedly prostituting a 16-year-old girl out of a hotel in Jessup, Maryland. The girl is said to be a runaway who Russell offered a place to stay then sexually assaulted the girl and coerced her to use drugs, probably in an attempt to get her addicted. While Backpage was not involved in this investigation, it was discovered that the girl was being turned out on the website.

Here’s what I don’t understand. When I post a story that in any way involves child abuse, like this one, everyone is ready to get out the pitchfork and torches. However, when I post a story about a girl being turned out for prostitution no one bats an eyelash. Make no mistake, while a pimp is nowhere close to being a parent, this is a form of child abuse. We should be just as outraged.

UPDATE 7/7/2017: Also charged with allegedly trafficking the girl is 31-year-old Jessica Lynn Smitherman, of Laurel, Maryland.

Craigslist creeper Uber driver had teen fantasy ‘for so long’

Craigslist creeper Uber driver had teen fantasy ‘for so long’

Asil Din

46-year-old Uber driver Asil Din, of Germantown, Maryland, is accused of allegedly soliciting sex from a 15-year-old girl from craigslist. Din reportedly placed an ad on Craigslist that asked “Any local young lady available?” Montgomery County police responded to the ad posing as a 15-year-old girl.

“I don’t wanna lie I am only 15, is that ok?” the officer wrote.

“Ok. That’s fine I guess,” Din, who police say was writing under the pen name “Oscar” at the time, reportedly wrote back. “Wait I don’t want to get in trouble with that, when will u be 16? … as long as you are not the police. And I have had this fantasy for so long.”

Being the obvious romantic that he is, Din is said to have not only asked if after school was the best time to hook up for sex, but offered the girl $100 for each time they had sex.

Din is currently out on bond with a trial scheduled for April.

Once again, these kinds of ads are something that craigslist should be monitoring for, whether it be through moderators or software. It’s actually not that difficult, but craigslist either doesn’t want to spend the money or doesn’t care that their site is being used as a marketplace for sexual predators.

Md. Kik and craigslist creeper used modeling scam to lure teen victim

Roy David Evans Jr.

Roy David Evans Jr.

I wasn’t planning on having a theme day today yet here we are.

31-year-old Roy David Evans Jr. is accused of allegedly having a ‘sexual relationship’ (child rape) with a 14-year-old girl that he met through craigslist. Evans is said to have placed an ad on craigslist looking for young models in the Baltimore area and for the models to message him through his Kik account at “Roddanger86”. Police believe he may have more victims…

Anyone who believes that they may have encountered Evans is asked to contact Montgomery County Police at 240-773-5400 or their local police department.

In my previous post I listed some ways on how you can tell if your child is being scammed. Another good way to tell is that I would imagine that most ‘legitimate’ modeling agencies don’t use Kik as their primary method of communication and if they did I doubt they would have a sleazy handle like “Rod Danger”. Not to mention that even legit modeling has its share of scumbags and pitfalls.

Maryland police looking for Backpage child pimp

Janice Figueroa and Nathaniel Lee Thompson

Janice Figueroa and Nathaniel Lee Thompson

Police in Howard County, Maryland, are currently searching for 28-year-old Nathaniel Lee Thompson from Delaware. He’s accused of allegedly prostituting a 17-year-old girl on Backpage. Arrested in connection with Thompson’s crime was 19-year-old Janice Figueroa who has been charged with multiple counts of human trafficking.

Police were conducting a Backpage sting when they encountered the 17-year-old girl. When they moved in to arrest Figueroa and Thompson, Figueroa was lying down in the backseat of the car they used to drive the girl to the hotel while Thompson escaped through the backdoor of a restaurant. While this story is lacking in details the charges must be pretty serious as Figueroa is being held on $1 million bond.

Anyone with information on Thompson’s whereabouts, or any human trafficking in Howard County, should call 410-313-STOP or email HCPDcrimetips@howardcountymd.gov.

Meanwhile Backpage would rather thumb their nose at the government then take any measures to stop the sex slave trade that takes place on their website,

Preacher charged with Backpage rapes


33-year-old Gabriel Omogbo of Hyattsville, Maryland, is supposedly a preacher but he’s obviously not a man of God if the charges are to be believed. Police in Rockville, Martyland, say that Omogbo has allegedly raped three prostitutes that he targeted through Backpage.

As I’ve said before, contrary to what some would have you believe, Backpage does not make prostitutes any safer. With Backpage it just delivers them to the rapist’s lair.

Thanks to Sweetd for the tip.

A kouple of Kik Kreepers for your weekend


38-year-old of Steven Wayne Robinson, of Daisetta, Texas, is accused of allegedly sexually abusing children including an infant and then trading the images through Kik and Dropbox. This one is a real piece of filth…

That user initially said he created the contents of a folder named “baby niece,” but later admitted that another Kik account holder produced the films and makes “new videos every weekend.”

He’s looking at a mandatory 15-year-minimum. Let’s hope he gets closer to the maximum.


33-year-old William Henry Steinhaus IV, of Brunswick, Maryland, has been indicted on child porn and sex abuse charges. Steinhaus was arrested last year after allegedly sharing child porn on Kik with a federal investigator. Authorities also believe that Steinhaus violated a 2-year-old girl and shared the images with other Kik users. He’s looking at a 100 year sentence.

UPDATE 12/10/2016: Steinhaus has pleaded guilty to sexual exploitation of a child to produce pornography.

UPDATE 3/18/2017: Earlier this week, Steinhaus was sentenced to only 25 years behind bars. Not nearly enough for such a vile cretin.

UPDATE 3/24/2017: Steinhaus may be facing an additional 25 years behind bars…

“It was actually separate crimes even though they were intertwined, because he was abusing the child, and he was also digitally recording and sharing it. He was charged federally with the making of the child pornography, and, locally, he was charged with the abuse of the child,” said Frederick County Maryland’s Assistant State’s Attorney Tammy Leache.

If he gets the additional time, that may be a more fitting sentence.

UPDATE 4/25/2017: Steinhaus did get the additional 25 years.


Kik may want to start being more aggressive in their efforts to rid its services of child porn before it’s known as the preferred messaging app of pedophiles and sex offenders. That can’t be good for their bottom line.

Latest craigslist killing happens outside of Baltimore and no one cares

Homicide victim was lured by a Craigslist ad, police said:


Police in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, say that 44-year-old Rene Filsdelfo Levia-Archilla of Baltimore was lured to his death by a craigslist ad. Mr. Levia-Archilla and a friend of his were in Harmans, Maryland, to buy a car from a craigslist seller. Instead it turned out to be a robbery set up where Mr. Levia-Archilla was shot to death. His friend fled and survived. The suspect is still at large.

The suspect is being described as a white male, 30-40 years old, approximately 5-foot-10 with a medium to heavy build, black, crew cut style hair and a five o’clock shadow.

The suspect vehicle is described as a silver or white mid-size, four door sport utility vehicle (SUV). Anyone with information about this crime can contact Metro Crime Stoppers or the Anne Arundel County Police homicide unit at 410-222-3566 .

Like I’ve said previously I’ve lost count of how many murders have been perpetrated through craigslist. What gets me is craigslist does nothing to stop this and people are ok with it. When MySpace was at the height of its popularity people and lawmakers almost stormed the MySpace offices with pitchforks and torches over the kids who were being preyed upon by pedophiles. MySpace to its credit did everything within its power to curb the amount of predators on their site. Craigslist is basically saying “Eh, you just have to take your chances.”

I realize that the number of transactions that happen on craigslist that result in murders are a very small percentage, probably smaller that 1% of all craigslist transactions in the US. It still doesn’t change the fact that a few dozen people have been killed by using the website. A few dozen murders that no one seems to have a problem with, policy makers and media included and that’s the real shame of this.

UPDATE 3/10/2014: 34-year-old Gregory Dontae Lewis of Millersville, Maryland, has been arrested for the murder of Rene Filsdelfo Levia-Archilla.

Gregory Dontae Lewis

Still, no one cares.

UPDATE 4/13/2015: Back in February Lewis pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 60 years behind bars.

Toddler’s ‘Disrespect’ Was Fatal

(Trench’s note: As noted by the circumstances below I’m very behind on my own assignments so I apologize to the writers who submitted stories a while ago and I’m now just getting around to posting them.)

Thanks to Eccentric Lady for the write up.

Clifton Bernard

Clifton Bernard charged with Jamir Shipe’s murder:

Clifton Edward Bernard charged with child abuse, attempted murder:

Suitland, MD – It would seem this boy toy to Jamir Shipe’s mother fits in the category of being deeply insecure enough to be threatened by a two-year old. Yes, this epitome of manliness couldn’t handle the funny face made to him by a little boy who climbed on the furniture. Clifton Bernard reacted as any manly man would think that his two-inch dick is ten inches long – by grabbing the toddler and shoving him to the floor.

Well, shelled-peanuts-for-balls here didn’t think that was enough there – grabbed the charming little guy by his face and forced his head through a wall. Yup, that sure took care of the child’s playful smarty behavior – and any potential future arrangements of babysitting.

Toddlers are seemingly by nature a bit on the rough and tumble side, but still are far from being indestructible. Being grabbed by the torso, slammed to the floor than picked up by the face and shoved through drywall is too much – even for an adult!

Well, after that pique two brain cells collided in Bernard’s head upstairs and he called 911. If you thought he was going to man up to being an insecure little prick, I wish I was that naive. Nah, he called for help for Jamir was ‘choking on food’.

Really? Broken bones in his face and head, total respiratory failure and other serious injuries caused by choking on food? Bernard must be praying that the doctors got hit with the dumb stick if he thought that would have believed. If anyone got hit with the dumb stick it was Bernard.

He’s been charged with first degree murder and more. Sad sack’s being held without bond too.

R.I.P Jamir Shipe – at least up in Heaven, they know how to laugh.
