Titiana Was Taunted According To One Fine Taunter
One young man was killed by an angry Siberian tiger named Titiana. Two others were attacked but survived. Titiana was shot dead by responding police.
SAN FRANCISCO — One of the three victims of San Francisco Zoo tiger attack was intoxicated and admitted to yelling and waving at the animal while standing atop the railing of the big cat enclosure, police said in court documents filed Thursday.
Paul Dhaliwal, 19, told the father of Carlos Sousa Jr., 17, who was killed, that the three yelled and waved at the tiger but insisted they never threw anything into its pen to provoke the cat, according to a search warrant affidavit obtained by the San Francisco Chronicle.
Part of what makes this story intriguing is those boys’ fine choice of a lawyer, the very respected Mark Geragos, attorney to the stars and dedicated humanitarian who wouldn’t take a cent for his efforts to protect the poor and downtrodden from bad publicity re tiger attacks.
Three young men decided to go to the San Francisco zoo this past Christmas day. They had a couple of shots of vodka first and perhaps a joint or two. It was close to closing when these fine young men, whose parents must be so proud of them, thought it would be a hoot to climb the fence protecting the tiger moat and, well it’s not clear what those young men did.
Rumors include the possibility that they used a slingshot to torment the tiger as it was trapped in its enclosure and couldn’t escape the flying missiles raining on her from above, to a scenario where the boys threw things at the tiger by hand, to the most recent, and most benign action of all, taunting and teasing the tiger from atop her moat.
Since the incident and with the help of the well-regarded Mark Geragos, defender of Michael Jackson, rumors and speculation has been rampant. It’s even been rumored that the two surviving young men took a pact in the ambulance to NOT reveal what happened as the three goofed around that tiger enclosure.
A magnificent animal is dead. A young man is dead, his body torn apart by an angry tiger. Two young men are under great suspicion but have recovered from their wounds.
Mark Geragos stands to make a financial bounty on the lawsuit he no doubt intends to lay on the San Francisco zoo which was, ahem, very poorly run.
Now a zoo should be designed to contain the animals in their enclosures no mind the thoughtless who would taunt, tease or even throw objects at them. It’s fallacious to assume that the fickle public won’t engage in all manner of inappropriate activity around the animal enclosures. Keeping the animals CONTAINED in their area…hey, it’s Zookeeping 101.
Still, drunken boorish behavior should not be rewarded by great wealth raining down via lawsuits filed by attorneys with questionable morals. If those young men, whose parents must be so very proud of them as young men their own age fight the war in Iraq even on Christmas day, climbed over the chain-linked fence and in any manner were where they shouldn’t hadn’t oughta been, they simply do NOT deserve to get rich on their bad behavior.
Maybe the zoo ought to sue those boys and Geragos for the loss of the tiger?
Delaware Woman Missing Under Strange Circumstances Since November 07
Sheddy left her Bowers Beach, Del. home on Nov. 13 with her two sons, ages two and four, in tow to visit a couple in Pocomoke she had met earlier through her boyfriend. Sheddy remained behind with her two sons at the Pocomoke residence while the couple went to pick up their own children at school.
When the couple returned, Sheddy was gone and her two boys were left home alone
For reasons unclear, this case of a young mother who disappeared under the most disturbing of circumstances, has been ignored by even the Delaware state police and the FBI, not to mention the national radar, for as long as she’s been missing.
According to the quote above, from WGMD.com, Christine Sheddy went to visit some friends of her boyfriend (she and Levi Hall are NOT married). That couple went on a shopping trip and when they came home the two kids were by themselves and Christine Sheddy was gone.
But wow. Just wow. First, the mother of the father of Sheddy’s two young sons, Joyce Hall, happens to work for the radio station WGMD.com, the link as provided above. WGMD is a local talk station near my home and myself, this humble Blogger, could tell you stories that would curl your hair about this radio station. Heh.
However the station does carry Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingraham so I won’t mention their misogynist of an afternoon talk show host and the stalker DJ who mans the morning broadcasts.
Anyhow, CHECK OUT THIS LINK, the COMMENTS, for a background of this missing woman that will stun the hell out of you.
For Christine Sheddy led a very strange life. But I would remind yon readers about that dead pregnant marine who tried to get attention for her plight and because of a strange family and strange comments, was virtually ignored until a month later when her burned body was found in her accused rapist’s back yard.
Christine Sheddy’s children’s biological grandmother works for WGMD and this woman is bad-mouthing Christine all to hell, right on WGMD’s Blog. Could it be because her son and father of Sheddy’s two boys, is a possible suspect into the disappearance of Christine Sheddy?
Christine Sheddy has been missing for almost two months now. This coming Saturday is her birthday. And while the picture being painted of Christine is not flattering, this woman has never left her children behind for months at a time. Not to mention that she took no clothes, no supplies, no money. No matter what you think of Sheddy and her Myspace pages, she’d probably dead by now and no one had any right to kill the woman.
I am just shocked that WGMD.com is giving Levi Hall’s mother a place to sit and paint such an awful picture of the missing mother of her grandchildren. But I don’t know, maybe WGMD is doing it on behalf of law enforcement.
Whatever the case, Christine Sheddy is probably dead somewhere. Either those two fine folks with whom she was staying know something they aren’t telling, or Levi Hall, a man with a record of violence with Christine, also knows something he isn’t telling.
Then, yon readers of True Crime who know it is one of this humble Blogger’s specialty, ask ME about my experiences with WGMD. I never wrote a word about it but I could, ladies and gems…I sure could. And I got all the emails saved for proof.
A Saudi Tit for Tat?
I covered the pathetic story of a Saudi woman sentenced to jail and lashes for the crime of being gang-raped HERE.
Now, amidst the amazing story that Saudi women will now be able to rent a hotel room without a males escort in that fine female-loving country, we learn that the Saudis are requesting Bush give a pardon to a fine Saudi man too charged with a crime in this country.
King Abdullah did grant the rape victim release from jail God Love this descendent of the House of Saud and some camels somewhere in the desert.
DENVER (CBS4) ― President Bush heard a request to release a man in a Colorado prison during his visit to Saudi Arabia.
Homaidan Al-Turki is behind bars awaiting the outcome of an appeal. A court convicted him in 2006 of sexually assaulting and enslaving his Indonesian maid in his Aurora home.
The fine fellow the Saudis want released is accused of sexually assaulting his maid and making her into a slave! Hardly the same thing as a woman gang-raped by a fine group of Muslim men and then herself sentenced to jail and lashes for the crime of being out and about without a male escort!
If this IS a quid-pro-quo, let’s hope Bush doesn’t comply. If this creep gets free for his awful behavior, then I will forever lose any respect I had for George W. Bush.
Dead Marine’s Killer May Never Be Returned by Mexico
Before going into new details about the dead, pregnant marine, Maria Lauterbach, here’s an interesting tidbit. It would seem that Mexico does NOT have a extradition agreement with American in the event that person being extradited would have a death penalty OR, get this, LIFE WITHOUT POSSIBILITY OF PAROLE, facing them.
So the fine Cesar Laurean, the fellow accused of rape by Lauterbach and who undoubtedly killed her and her unborn baby by a brutal blow to the head then burned her body in his backyard, must not be charged with either the death penalty or life without parole if the prosecutors expect cooperation with Mexico.
The wife of the suspected killer of a pregnant Marine knew she was dead a day before she went to police, according to affidavits obtained by local TV news stations in North Carolina.
Mexico is a fine country at any rate, run by criminals and druglords that can’t even support its own citizenry without sending them out to sneak across the borders to our country. I must suppose that no Mexican citizen commits murder to deserve death or, horrors, life without parole. Well hell, that country is so corrupt I must suppose that murderers are veritable heroes in that part of the world.
Now we learn that the fine wife of Cesar Laurean, who must be so proud of her husband who rapes women, kills them in his own house, buries their burned bodies in his backyard and even throws celebratory barbecues in that same backyard right over the poor woman’s body, knew right along that her wonderful mate killed Lauterbach.
If we manage to ever find this great example of Mexican manhood I suppose we must promise to give him a medal and a financial reward before the great country of Mexico will let us bring him back to the scene of his crime.
Man Beats Baby to Death
Here we have another fine, brave example of manhood in the person of a fellow who beat a 9-month old baby to death.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Prosecutors filed a second-degree murder charge against a Kansas City man in the death of his 9-month-old son.
Jackson County prosecutors also charged Daniel T. Taft, 27, with child endangerment and child abuse. He turned himself in Wednesday after the medical examiner ruled Savion Taft's death a homicide.
Ladies and gems, this baby was not just hit on the head suddenly and shockingly. This baby had a fractured skull, broken ribs, abdominal injuries and, dear God protect this innocent in your loving arms, a lacerated heart.
The loving Dad had himself some PCP and when the baby cried the fine man just beat the child to death. The father of the year is being held on half a million dollars cash only bond.
As it should be…big, brave man, beating a baby to death.
Stacy Peterson’s Steamy Text Messages
Meanwhile, out in Illinois where cops can kill their wives regularly and with nary a second look it would seem, the fine Drew Peterson continues to think we are idiots.
We are to believe that, with all this hoopla, that Stacy Peterson is even as I type holed up with her lover at some hotel, never worried about her children and missing the Christmas holidays completely, munching popcorn, making love and laughing at the televised video of searchers looking for her body.
At least as Drew’s wonderful attorney would have us believe because of a text message found on Stacy’s phone.
The fine and helpful Drew Peterson thoughtfully provided Stacy’s cell phone to investigators after “discovering” the message somehow hidden in the phone, which had been given to Drew’s son when Stacy got a new one.
According to Sprint, ANYONE can send a text message from their web site to a designated known cell phone. How convenient is this that after all this time Drew finds the message?
From Chicago Tribune.com:
Drew Peterson's attorney said Wednesday that a racy message sent to Stacy Peterson's cell phone in September shows she was having an affair and lends credence to the theory that the missing woman left her husband for another man.
Well hey, even if Stacy did get this steamy text message, by me it only makes the lovely Drew look even guiltier. He’s got one dead wife under his belt, damn a current wife getting such messages would probably set him off again the way I see it.
Just When You Think You’ve Heard It All
This guy tapes a Packers jersey to his son and refuses to let him remove it?
PORTAGE, Wis. -- A Wisconsin man faces charges of abuse after a woman on Monday reported that her 7-year-old son was forced to wear a Green Bay Packers jersey.
According to a release from the Columbia County Sheriff's Office, Matthew Kowald, 36, of Pardeeville, Wis., told his son to wear the jersey and when the boy refused, he restrained the 7-year-old for about an hour.
This fine father was arrested but was released on bail. He is NOT allowed to see his children.
He must be so proud of himself. Such an amazing loyalty to his football team.
Speaking of Fine Football Aficionados…
New England Patriot player Randy Moss has a violence problem it would seem.
Moss’ live in lady friend, Rachelle Washington, filed a restraining order against her fine man.
From The Smoking Gun.com:
A Florida woman claims that New England Patriots star Randy Moss beat her earlier this month and kept her from seeking medical attention. On Monday, Rachelle Washington secured a temporary restraining order against the wide receiver in Broward County Circuit Court (a copy of Washington's TRO petition can be found below). Washington, 35, alleges that she was battered by Moss in her Fort Lauderdale home on Sunday, January 6
Randy Moss, such a fine man. He must be so proud. New England Patriot fans should be so proud of their players.
Another Proud, Fine Father…
This story was reported when it happened in November of last year. Now one of the boys has succumbed to his injuries.
GLENDALE HEIGHTS, Ill. (CBS) ― The youngest of two brothers severely burned in November died Thursday. Their father is accused of dousing them with gasoline and setting them on fire and he could face murder charges.
This fine father lured his young sons into a shower, doused them with gasoline, and set them on fire. He wanted to punish his wife for divorcing him.
Jesus hold this innocent in your arms and welcome him to the glory of Your Heaven.
What a fine, fine man this father is. He must be so proud of setting his own sons on fire.
