Recommended Posts

Let's just share the story here, because what?


Six former eBay employees were "charged with leading a cyberstalking campaign" against a newsletter editor and publisher, which "included sending the couple anonymous, threatening messages, disturbing deliveries—including a box of live cockroaches, a funeral wreath, and a bloody pig mask—and conducting covert surveillance of the victims," the US Department of Justice and US Attorney's Office in Massachusetts announced today.


James Baugh, 45, is eBay's former senior director of safety and security, and David Harville, 48, is eBay's former director of global resiliency—both were arrested today and charged with conspiracy to commit cyberstalking and conspiracy to tamper with witnesses. Each charge "carr[ies] a sentence of up to five years in prison, three years of supervised release, a fine of up to $250,000 and restitution," the DOJ said.

Here is some more WTF news!



Police and firefighters made a gruesome discovery on the side of the Hutchinson River Parkway early Monday -- a man's body on fire, his hands bound behind his back.

The NYPD and FDNY got the call just after midnight for a fire on the northbound Hutch near exit 6, in the general area of Co-Op City. Once the flames were extinguished, they found the dead man.

Authorities later confirmed the victim was male, and that his hands were bound behind his back. There was no vehicle near the body, though how exactly it got there and was set on fire remain under investigation.

A 14-year-old Ohio girl and her younger sister were crushed to death by falling bricks as they were lying in a backyard hammock, according to reports.

The tragic, freak accident happened Sunday evening at the girls’ home in Cleveland Heights.

The victims were identified as Scout and Chasey Scaravilli, Fox 8 Cleveland reported.

Hours after the incident, they were pronounced dead at the hospital. Police were investigating.

Scout was the older girl; Chasey was 12.

They were killed when a brick pillar collapsed, according to the station.

The hammock had been tied to the pillar and a tree.
