A Deltona, Fla., man may soon be swapping the Babysitters’ Club for Alcoholics Anonymous after allegedly passing out drunk while watching two young children.
Police have made another arrest in the murder of Nicholas Walker, who was gunned down last month after an altercation in a Florida Waffle House. Just before the murder, his accused killer allegedly butt-dialed 911 while planning the hit with an accomplice.
This 911 call was placed by teacher Patti Nielson during the April 20, 1999, shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado. During the call, shooters Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold enter the library where Nielson, three teachers and 52 students were taking cover.
Most people would be surprised at how many alleged perps call 911 while in the act of breaking the law; from stealing a car, to making a drug deal, police trace the accidental calls and quickly make arrests. This case, however, stunned even police and may be a new record: man accidentally calls 911 while planning a murder.
In December, 2010, 14-year-old Naples, Fla., boy Alex Crain called 911. He told the operator that both his parents had been shot and pleaded for police to “please hurry.” When asked who shot his parents, Alex cried, “I did.”
More details have emerged in the case of missing Michigan mom Jessica Heeringa, who is believed to have been abducted from her job at a North Shores Exxon station on Friday April 26, 2013, possibly by someone she knew.
Hear the 911 call made by 19-year-old Michael Anderson after he killed and mutilated his roommate, an older gay man who took him in. According to reports, Anderson killed his victim due to the influence of Mucinex DM and homophobia.
A list of the most recent victims of a weird new prank phenom: celebrity swatting, in which 911 calls are made to get police to send a SWAT team a celeb’s home. Earlier this month LA police declared a blackout on reporting such calls, which we though meant the end of swatting. We were wrong.
This is the call placed by frantic mom Patsy Ramsey on December 26, 1996, when she discovered her six-year-old daughter JonBenét missing. A ransom note, warning Patsy not to contact police, was found in the kitchen. Hours after the call, JonBenét was discovered dead in the basement. The case remains unsolved.
The 911 call related to the death of adopted Russian-born boy Maxim Kuzmin was released by police after a grand jury determined on March 18 that there was insufficient evidence to charge his his parents. Russian authorities are skeptical of the decision and are currently reviewing the autopsy reports.
