57 Year Old Babysitter Martha Dreher Charged with Arson and Setting Fire to Family’s Home Because Two Pre-Teen Girls were “Disrespectful”
Would just quitting your job have been asking too much to do?
57 year old Martha Dreher has been charged with arson and setting fire to the family’s home that she babysits for. According to reports, Dreher was so annoyed with the two girls she babysat, that she decided to set their bedrooms on fire. The fire was set when the father and two girls were out of town. Imagine having hired this nut-job to take care of your children? Martha Dreher has denied setting the fire at the family’s home in Austin, Texas; however, she said that she wanted to quit and that the girls had been disrespectful to her. Home surveillance video captured Dreher driving up to the empty house earlier this month, then leaving 20 minutes later as flames were visible from the girls’ bedroom. Are you kidding, she was disrespected by two pre-teen girls so she sets the how on fire? GOOD GRIEF!!!
A Texas woman was allegedly so annoyed with two girls she babysat, police say she decided to set their bedrooms on fire.
Martha Dreher is charged with arson, accused of setting a fire in the two girls’ rooms while their father, Glenn Williams, was out of town with his daughters.
Dreher, 57, had worked for the family for a few months. She denied setting the fire at the family’s home in Austin, Texas, but told investigators she was tired of dealing with the girls and wanted to quit, according to Williams.
“She said that it was horrible, that the girls — my oldest — had been very disrespectful,” said Williams.
Dyer County, TN High School Student Kendra Turner Suspended For Saying ‘Bless You’ After Classmate Sneezed
To the IDIOT teacher that would be so offended by a student saying bless you … Bless your heart.
So much for the Bible belt … Kendra Turner, a Dyer County High School senior was suspended for saying “bless you” after a fellow classmate sneezed. HUH? Mind you the high school student did not even say God bless you, just bless you. But for this she was told to go to the school administrator and then served the rest of the class period with in-school suspension. According to reports, bless you is on a list of words that this teacher does not allow in her class that include: stupid, dumb, boring, stuff, i don’t know, other peer expressions, bless you, hang out and my bad. I am guess they don’t teach the US Constitution at Dyer County high School and namely the First Amendment. In this day and age where we yearn for our youth to be responsible and kind to one another and battle school bullying, this is the crime that gets a student suspension? Really, why stop there … had she said God bless you would that have meant being expelled?
KUDOS to Kendra Turner for standing up for her rights.
A young girl, who claims she was standing up for her religious beliefs in the classroom, was suspended after breaking a class rule of saying “bless you” after a classmate sneezed.
When Dyer County High School senior Kendra Turner said bless you to her classmate, she says her teacher told her that was for church.
“She said that we’re not going to have godly speaking in her class and that’s when I said we have a Constitutional right,” said Turner.
Turner said when she defended her actions, she was told to see an administrator. She said she finished the class period in in-school suspension.
Students sent WMC a photo of the teacher’s white board that lists ‘bless you’ and other expressions that are banned as part of class rules.
Pretty amazing how this high school senior is a bigger individual than her teacher. I guess God will do that. Kendra Turner said she doesn’t want trouble for her teacher but says she’ll stand up for her faith … “It’s alright to defend God and it’s our constitutional right because we have a freedom of religion and freedom of speech.”
Here is my note to the teacher that would some how think that bless you and stupid would ever be included in the same list. As I was hanging out I came across a teacher that was outraged that a student said bless you. This educator might be the most stupid and closed minded individual ever that would some how be so dumb that words like boring and stuff would be used in the same sentence as bless you. I guess if I said this in class it would get me suspended or expelled, sorry, my bad!

Bizarre: Harrisburg, PA Mother Kimberly Tutko Said She Didn’t Know Her 8 Year Old Mentally Disabled Son Had Been Dead in Home for Days
A Harrisburg, Pennsylvania mother, Kimberly Tutko, stated that she did not know that her 8 year old severely mentally disabled had died in her home until her husband told her four days after the fact. HUH? According to accounts, Kimberly Tutko noticed a strange odor coming from the 3rd floor of their home along the 2100 block of Green Street. Her husband, Jarrod Nicholas Tutko, brought down their son, Jarrod Jr., who had been dead for four days. The mother called 911 and police The 8 year old deceased child was severely mentally disabled and was diagnosed with autism, failure to thrive and Fragile X Syndrome, a genetic defect, that causes intellectual disability, behavioral and learning challenges. It’s not clear how the child died; however, an autopsy is scheduled for this week. According to court records, 38 year old Jarrod Nicholas Tutko Sr. was charged with endangering the welfare of children, concealing the death of a child and abuse of a corpse. His bail was set at $500,000.
The mother of a boy found dead in an uptown Harrisburg home said her husband waited about four days to reveal to her that their son had died.
Kimberly Tutko said she noticed a strange odor coming from the third floor of her Green Street home Friday night.
Her husband, Jarrod Nicholas Tutko, went upstairs and came back with body of their eight-year-old son, Jarrod Jr., wrapped in a sheet and laid him on the bathroom floor, she said.
Believing the boy had just died, Kimberly Tutko said she pulled the sheet back and quickly realized he had been dead for several days.
Kimberly Tutko said her husband told her the child died on Tuesday.
“I said to him ‘Why didn’t you say anything?’” Kimberly Tutko said. “He said he was too afraid to say anything because of other kids in the house.”
Kimberly Tutko said she understands people will find it difficult to believe she did not know her son was dead. YA THINK!
The couple has five other children, ages 13, 12, 10, 6 and 3, were removed from the home Friday night and place in protective custody. Several of the children suffer from serious medical conditions. The children are being cared for by the county children and youth specialists.
He’s Back … George Zimmerman Seen Patrolling Pompano Pat’s Gun Store After Recent Robbery in Deland, FL
George Zimmerman, the volunteer neighborhood watchman who was found not guilty in the death of Trayvon Martin was back to patrolling ways in a Volusia County, FL. According to a police report, two officers spotted a suspicious, dark-colored truck parked behind Pompano Pat’s early Sunday, shortly after midnight. The occupant of the truck turned out to be George Zimmerman. The all too often in the news following his murder trail Zimmerman told the police officers he had permission to be there from the store’s owner to provide security and keep an eye on the business after a recent robbery. However, the owner of Pompano Pat’s gun store denies having hired Zimmerman.
The manager of Pompano Pat’s, a motorcycle and gun store in DeLand, said Tuesday that Zimmerman was never hired to provide security, despite Zimmerman’s claims to DeLand police.
Store owner Pat Johnson says he’s getting death threats because of Zimmerman’s claim, and it’s not the first time. Last year, Johnson received threats after offering to replace Zimmerman’s gun shortly after Zimmerman was acquitted of murder in the 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford.
Although he’s not a hired security officer, George Zimmerman has been “patrolling” outside a Volusia County gun shop after it was recently robbed, according to the store owner.
Pat Johnson told Local 6 that Zimmerman is not an employee of his DeLand store Pompano Pat’s, which sells firearms, ammunition and motorcycles.
Johnson said that Zimmerman, on his own accord, has been spotted outside the store since the robbery earlier this month. The thieves stole rifles worth up to $5,000 and two mini-bikes, according to Johnson.
“I didn’t OK it. I didn’t know about it. I didn’t authorize it. I didn’t pay for it,” Johnson said. “He had just watched Facebook and the news and just took it upon himself to come up here and sit.”
Johnson added that although he knows Zimmerman, he has not hired him as a security officer.
GEORGE … PLEASE, FADE AWAY INTO OBSCURITY.
Jennifer Huston Missing Since 7/24/14: Stopped at a Rite Aid Drug Store and Purchased Gatorade, Trail Mix and a Package of Sleeping Pills … Surveillance Video Image … Missing: Accident, Abduction, Suicide? (Update: Possible Sighting in San Juan Islands)(Update: Jennifer Huston’s Body Found)(Update: Officially Ruled a Suicide)
Ut-oh, Sleeping pills, full tank of gas and cell phone turned off …
Authorities in Oregon have released a surveillance video image of missing Jennifer Huston from the day that she went missing on July 24, 2014. The image is of Huston stopped at a Rite Aid drug store in Newberg, OR, and purchasing Gatorade, trail mix and a package of over-the-counter sleeping pills.
These are not good signs. The police have stated that the amount of sleeping pills she purchased would not be enough for a lethal dose. Also, the full tank of gas purchased by Jennifer Huston’s provides her with a 300 to 350 mile traveling range. Not to speculate, but I think the police may be looking at this in the wrong way. Sadly, sleeping pills, a full tank of gas and some one turning their cell phone off as all of the unfortunate signs of one attempting to contemplate suicide. The sleeping pills are not intended to be lethal, they are meant to make one drowsy as they run a car with a full tank of gas as carbon monoxide fumes enter the vehicle. The cell phone is turned off so not to be pinged and located. As per KPTV, according to phone records, Jennifer Huston received a text message from her mother at 6:22 p.m. Thursday, but the phone stopped sending signals at 6:25 p.m.
I hope I am very wrong and she is found safe and sound.
Jennifer Huston taken Thursday night at a Rite-Aid in Newberg, OR Pic : Dundee, Oregon Police
Missing Oregon mom Jennifer Huston stopped at a Rite Aid drug store in Newberg, Ore., and purchased Gatorade, trail mix and a package of over-the-counter sleeping pills — a non-lethal dose — before she disappeared last week, police said Tuesday night.
Police released new details about the search for the married mother of two young boys.
Detectives said her husband, Kallen Huston, has been cooperative through the whole process, including multiple interviews, and he passed a polygraph test.
Investigators previously released a timeline of Jennifer Huston’s last known activities that included leaving her home last Thursday at 5:45 p.m., going to the Oregon First Community Credit Union in Newberg about three miles away and then to a nearby Circle K gas station on Portland Road.
Police said she spent less than $40 at the gas station, so they believe she was topping off the tank. She withdrew less than $100 from the credit union ATM.
Say a prayer for the safe return of Jennifer Huston.
The search for a missing Oregon mother has been extended to Washington state’s San Juan Islands, after police learned that she had visited there before in the past and that it was one of her favorite spots.
At the same time, authorities in the San Juan Islands have been told that Huston may have gone there.
San Juan County Sheriff Rom Nou confirmed that he had received a bulletin from detectives in Oregon saying that Huston may be in the San Juans or on her way there.
Authorities confirmed late Saturday that they are investigating a possible sighting of missing Oregon mother Jennifer Huston in Washington state’s San Juan Islands.
San Juan (Wash.) Country Sheriff’s deputies have told KPTV that a couple visiting the islands are convinced that they saw Huston on board a ferry traveling from the mainland town of Anacortes to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island on the morning of July 31, exactly a week after she was reported missing.
San Juan Country Undersheriff Bruce Distler told the station that the couple said the woman was blonde, in her 30s, and driving a green SUV with a cracked windshield, similar to descriptions put out by police. Distler said that the tip was so descriptive that it prompted deputies to alert the police department in Newberg, Ore., where Huston was last seen.
FOX 12 can exclusively confirm that deputies are actively investigating a possible sighting of Jennifer Huston in the San Juan Islands.
Now, San Juan County Sheriff deputies are rushing to get their hands on surveillance video from aboard that ferry.
“The information that we’ve received is that there was a female on the boat, on the 9 o’clock ferry sailing from Anacortes to Friday Harbor on Thursday morning July 31,” said San Juan County Under sheriff Bruce Distler.
“The woman we talked to also identified a green car, possibly a 99 Lexus, with cracked windshield although she couldn’t give us a license plate,” said Distler.
Deputies say the couple who spotted the car also described a woman in her 30′s with blonde hair who had a 2 by 3 inch white Band-Aid on her left cheek. The tip was so descriptive, they’ve alerted the Newberg police department.
Deputies say they have also called ferry security based out of Seattle to pull the tape from that morning so they can confirm if the woman is in fact Huston.

Sadly, but not unexpected, the body of 38 year old Jennifer Huston was found Tuesday in Yamill County, OR. Her body was found a short distance away from her vehicle off Southwest Gopher Valley Road, off Oregon 18, near Sheridan. It appears that she died of an apparent suicide. Unfortunately, I had speculated above that the purchase of a full tank of gas, sleeping pills and a strange disappearance was a signs of someone who might commit suicide. I wish I was wrong. Rest in Peace.
The body of Jennifer Huston, the missing mother from Dundee, has been found in rural Yamhill County.
KGW (8) is reporting that Huston and her vehicle, a 1999 Lexus, were found Tuesday off Southwest Gopher Valley Road, off Oregon 18, near Sheridan.
A property owner found Huston’s SUV and reported it to authorities around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday. Yamhill County deputies responded and found the 1999 Lexus LX 470 that Huston was last seen driving.
Deputies did not locate Huston inside the SUV, but Newberg-Dundee police made a sweep of the area and found her body a short distance away.
There are no signs of foul play, according to detectives. Police said a press conference was set for 4 p.m. Tuesday.
Henderson County, Tenn. Judge Rules Enough Evidence to Continue the Case Against Jeff Pearcy in 2011 Disapperance of Holly Bobo in Darden, TN … Witness Claims to Have Seen Holly Bobo on Video After She Went Missing
Oh Dear God if True …
A Henderson County, Tennessee judge ruled today that there was enough evidence and probably cause to go forward and continue the case against Jeff Pearcy in the disappearance of Holly Bobo. Pearcy is charged with accessory after the fact and tampering with evidence . During today’s hearing, the state called witness Sandra King who testified she saw a video, about 30 and 45 seconds in length, featuring a woman crying with her hands tied-up and crying. Sandra King said the woman had blond hair and looked like Holly Bobo. King indicated Pearcy’s half-brother Mark shot the alleged video. King is believed to have lived with Jeff Pearcy for about two months from March to May 2014. To make matters worse, Sandra Kind stated, “He [Jeff] told me Mark [Pearcy] had video showing Zach Adams having sex with Bobo.” Holly Bobo has been missing since 7:30 am Wednesday morning, April 13, 2011 at her home on Swan Johnson Road in Darden, TN when she was kidnapped from her home in Decatur County, Tennessee.
Witness Sandra King testifying in Court
Holly Bobo was seen on video after she disappeared, according to a witness during a court proceeding Tuesday.
Jeff Pearcy was in court when a Henderson County judge ruled there is enough evidence to continue the case against Pearcy who is charged with accessory after the fact and tampering with evidence .
Sandra King, who once lived with Pearcy, testified she saw a video of a tied up woman crying, “I seen [sic] a woman tied up. She was crying… she was blonde. Yes, it looked like Holly Bobo. I did not want to see more.”
King also testified Jeff told her Mark had a video of Zach Adams having sex with Holly Bobo according to WTVF-TV.
Missing: Holly Bobo
Zach Adams is charged with felony first degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping in the disappearance of Holly Bobo, though a body has never been found. Mark Pearcy has been held in Carroll County without bond.
Suspect Jeff Pearcy
King testified that Zachary Adams, who has been charged with murder and kidnapping in connection with Bobo’s disappearance, was also in the video.
“I knew what he was fixing to do; I did not want to see,” King said.
Jeffrey Pearcy and his brother, Mark Pearcy, are charged with tampering with evidence and accessory after the fact in Bobo’s murder.
King testified that Jeffrey Pearcy showed her the video that Mark Pearcy took of Adams having sex with Bobo. She said Bobo was tied up and crying.
So far, nobody else has seen the video, including investigators, so they set Jeffrey Pearcy up with a phone call.
“I said to him, ‘You know that video of Holly, if it would have been you in that video, I would have watched it,’ and he said, ‘Yes I know,’” King said.
Jeffrey Pearcy said he couldn’t hear what King was saying over the phone and believes this was all a mistake. He said this is a sex tape with Mark Pearcy and his ex-wife, who also happens to be named Holly.
It was August 15, 2006 when Liz and husband David Carroll said on that 3 year old Marcus Fiesel disappeared in an Anderson Township, OH park. This sparking a search by thousands of volunteers that lasted several days. Marcus’ mom Liz Caroll tearfully begged people to help find her son, all the while she knew exactly what had happened and what she did to this poor child.
Marcus Fiesel, RIP
The death of 3-year-old Marcus Fiesel, who authorities said was killed by his foster parents in 2006, will be featured on “Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall” 10 p.m. Sunday on the Investigation Discovery channel.
The one-hour show includes an interview with Liz Carroll, Marcus’ foster mother, who is serving a life prison sentence after her conviction in a Clermont County Common Pleas Court in 2007.
Investigation Discovery, one of the sister Discovery Channel networks, can be found in Greater Cincinnati on Time Warner Channels 1139 (HD) and 139, and on Northern Kentucky Time Warner Channels 948 (HD) and 471, and Cincinnati Fioptics Channels 675 (HD) and 275.
What really happened to Marcus as Liz Carroll was providing crocodile tears …
Liz and David Carroll wrapped Marcus in a blanket, bound him with duct tape and left him in a hot closet without food and water while they went out of town for a weekend family reunion, prosecutors said.
After finding him dead, David Carroll and his live-in lover, Amy Baker, took Marcus’ body to a rural area and burned it with gasoline. Then they threw the remains in the Ohio River.
The horrific 2006 murder of 3 year old Marcus Fiesel, a special needs Foster child, was one that shocked the senses of everyone, including myself. However, from the outset of the case of missing Marcus Fiesel, some thing just seemed to be wrong. Flashback to 2006, Scared Monkeys followed the events from the outset and had posted some rather critical articles of the foster parents accounts, obviously striking a nerve with Liz Carroll. The posts prompted Liz to leave a comment on Missing & Exploited web page that was far from PG rated and some what threatening. Needless to say it was forwarded to authorities. That very next morning, as fate would have it, Liz and David Carroll were arrested in the death of Marcus Fiesel.
Newspapers and television stations in southwest Ohio have followed every step in the case, and now that his foster parents have been charged, the story has grabbed the attention of media outlets throughout the United States.
There are Web sites that feature photo albums, message boards, chat rooms and slide and video shows. One of those is www.scaredmonkeys.com, dedicated to exploited and missing children. “Red,” one of the site’s co-founders, said after news of Marcus’ disappearance was linked to his Web site, he received an e-mail from Marcus’ foster mother. She chastised the site for their portrayal.
“As soon as she did that, well, it was like, she’s guilty,” Red said Friday from his office in Maine. “You knew this was going to end bad. The radar just went up. It raises the hair on the back of your neck. When you kill your son, and go public pleading for help, it brings it to a special level of hell.”
He said Marcus’ story has drawn widespread coverage because people are so “disgusted by it.” (Middletown Journal)
Here is one comment from Liz that we were able to print. Too bad she was lying through her murderous teeth.
First, I would like to state that the most important thing that everyone should be concerned about is finding my son. My family’s past and living arrangements have absolutely nothing to do with finding him. My family left our home to avoid media and multiple stangers from sitting outside our house at all hours. We have cooperated 110% with the detectives and have stayed in touch with them on a daily basis. Again, my family has done nothing wrong, we love and miss Marcus. I regret going to the park, not sitting down and not eating that morning. My family and I take day care and foster care children to King’s Island, Water parks, town parks, YMCA, aquariums, carnivals, festivals, and many more places. Since this incident, I have not been left alone and we haven’t taken out kids anywhere but school shopping. I am begging for anyone and everyone that reads this to PLEASE help me find my son. I know that I will not be able to care for him after this incident but I still need to know that he is alright. PLEASE call crime stoppers with ANY possible leads!!!!!!Thank you.

“Dumb, Dumber and Dumbest” … Two Naked Men & Their Underwear-Clad Accomplice Rob Bonita Beach, FL Restaurant … WHERE’S THE BEEF?
The Beefcake Bandits …
Three college age men, two completely nude, one just wearing his tidy-whites robbed Doc’s Beach House, not of any money, but of beef. You just can’t make this stuff up. The bandits in the buff robbed the restaurant at 3:06 a.m. Sunday, stealing 60 hamburgers, three pounds of bacon, three red peppers and a paddleboard. Why would one suspect that alcohol or drugs were involved in this crime? How do we know it was exactly 3:06 AM on Sunday, why the restaurant had a security camera of course. Actually, Doc’s Beach House had multiple security cameras that got the trio in a frame by frame account of their caper.
The Beefcake Bandits … Photo: Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers
Why would three naked “knuckleheads” break into a Bonita Beach eatery and only steal food as two security cameras captured their every move?
“Dumb, dumber and dumbest,” Sansevieri said with a laugh Wednesday.
Three days after the naked caper heard around Southwest Florida, the bare-naked beef bandits remained on the lam. Authorities don’t know if the men are tourists or residents, but are trying to uncover and bare all tips. On Wednesday, authorities released photos — at least those that can be printed — to ask the public for help in identifying the men. The bandits robbed the restaurant at 3:06 a.m. Sunday, stealing 60 hamburgers, three pounds of bacon, three red peppers and a paddleboard.
In addition to the restaurant security footage and 200 frame-by-frame photos, the bandits left another clue: a trail of red peppers on the beach. On Sunday morning, Doc’s kitchen staff found the restaurant’s red peppers about 100 yards away near a beach bathhouse.
“They left a trail like Hansel and Gretel,” Doc’s waitress Shelly Isom said with a laugh. “One of them probably said after, ‘Uh, guys, where did we leave our clothes?’”
WHERE’S THE BEEF?
Anyone with information on the identities and whereabouts of the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477). Bangert believes the men will be caught because of the media attention.
20 Year Old Erin Corwin Missing Since 6/28/14 … Investigators Believe Missing Pregnant Military Spouse May Have Been Shot & Was Having Affair
The mystery continues into the disappearance of 20 year old Erin Corwin.
Investigators now believe that Erin Corwin, the 20 year old missing pregnant woman, , married to U.S. Marine Corps corpora Jonathan Wayne, may have been shot while hunting. According to court documents, the day she disappeared three weeks ago, 20-year-old Erin Corwin had planned to meet with Christopher Brandon Lee to spend a “special day together” on a hunting trip. Also, according to court documents obtained by the newspaper, detectives believe the day trip was meant to celebrate Corwin’s pregnancy, but that Lee was concerned his wife would learn of his affair.
Investigators believe the missing pregnant wife of a California-based Marine may have been shot while hunting with a married ex-Marine with whom she was having an affair.
The Desert Sun cited court documents that say on the day she disappeared three weeks ago, 20-year-old Erin Corwin had planned to meet with Christopher Brandon Lee to spend a “special day together” on a hunting trip.
A detective’s affidavit shows the investigation is focusing on the 24-year-old Lee, who may have been the father of her child.
According to court documents obtained by the newspaper, detectives believe the day trip was meant to celebrate Corwin’s pregnancy, but that Lee was concerned his wife would learn of his affair.
“It is highly likely that Erin could have been harmed by an unknown firearm,” investigators reportedly wrote in court documents. “Sometime after Erin left with Lee, her phone was deactivated (turned off). Detectives believe if Erin was injured and left at an undisclosed location, she would not (be) able to call for help.”
Anyone with information on her whereabouts it urged to call the San Bernardino County sheriff’s Specialized Investigation Division at (909) 387-3589 or sheriff’s dispatch at (909) 387-8313. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can contact the WeTip hotline at (800) 782-7463
