Cheating husband gets wife's name tattooed on his manhood, as 'punishment'

A woman accused of abducting her husband's

lover made him get her name tattooed above his

crotch as payback for cheating, a court heard.

Tammy Moorer, 46, allegedly conspired to kidnap

20-year-old Heather Elvis, who is missing and

presumed dead, after discovering the affair.

And as a bizarre "punishment" for cheating, she

made her husband Sidney Moorer, 38, get her

name tattooed just above his penis, jurors heard.

Ms Elvis vanished from the US city of Myrtle

Beach, South Carolina, in December 2013 after the

affair was discovered and she has never been


Prosecutors claim Tammy became vindictive after

she found out in October 2013 that her husband

and Ms Elvis were in a sexual relationship and that

the young hostess may be pregnant.

Jacob Melton, who was friends with one of the

Moorers' sons, told the trial that Sidney got his

wife's name tattooed above his crotch after she

learned about the affair.

According to his evidence, Tammy allegedly told

her husband: “If you didn’t have that thing with

that girl, this wouldn’t be happening.”

The trial has also heard from Ms Elvis' former

boss, Dennis Clark, a former manager at the Tilted

Kilt bar where Sidney did maintenance work and

met the young hostess.

Mr Clark said Tammy told him to sack Ms Elvis or

else her husband would stop doing repairs for the

bar, the New York Post reported.

He said the conversation happened between

October and December 2013.

He told the court: “Tammy barged into the

conversation and proceeded to tell me how

Heather was causing problems for her family,

spreading rumors that she was pregnant by her

husband and (said) to fire her."

Tammy's defence team claims the evidence

reveals there was an affair but it doesn't show that

she had any role in Ms Elvis' disappearance.

On Thursday, Tammy's sister Ashley Caison gave

her an alibi for the time frame that prosecutors

claim she and her husband kidnapped Ms Elvis,

the Sun News reported.

Ms Caison told the court that Tammy texted her at

3.10am on December 18, 2013, to say she was


She said she was babysitting the Moorers'

children and then dropped them off at home after

receiving the message.

Ms Caison said: “They were outside, still waiting

to unlock their door to get in."

Tammy and her husband both initially faced

murder charges, but those charges were later


Sidney stood trial on a kidnapping charge last

year, but the proceedings ended in a mistrial.

Last year, he was jailed for 10 years for

obstruction of justice in the case.

Rape: Indian school refuses to admit gang-raped girl

A Dehradun school purportedly refused

enrollment to a 16-year-old girl, who was

allegedly gangraped two months ago in a

boarding school on the outskirts of the

city, stating that “a rape victim could not

be admitted”.

On Thursday, the victim’s counsel Aruna

Negi Chauhan claimed, “In the last week

of September, the girl’s parents were

visiting several CBSE schools in

Dehradun to get the girl an admission in

Class X. However, while many schools

denied her admission (based on the girl’s

performance in studies, and other

reasons), on September 27, a school in

the city denied admission stating that it

couldn’t give admission to a rape victim.”

“The victim was finally given admission

in a school in another city,” Chauhan


On August 14, the girl was allegedly

gangraped by four boys in the premises

of the boarding school she was earlier

enrolled in. The incident surfaced on

September 16 following which, three of

the four boys, were sent to a juvenile

correction home in Haridwar, and five

members of the school administration

and staff along with one rape accused

adult boy were sent to Dehradun district

jail in Sudhowala.

While Chauhan refrained from divulging

the name of the Dehradun-based school

that had allegedly denied the victim an

admission on the basis of the rape, she

said that on Tuesday she had filed a

complaint against the school to the

Dehradun police, the CBSE, and the

district administration via e-mail.

Dehradun Senior Superintendent of

Police said, “We spoke to the victim’s

family (on Thursday). The victim was

quite weak in studies, so it is

understandable that many schools would

have denied her admission. But, we are

getting the matter probed where a

particular school (allegedly) denied

admission to the girl stating that she was

a rape victim.”

On September 24, the CBSE had cancelled

the affiliation of the school where the

gangrape had taken place.

On being approached by The Indian

Express on Thursday, Ranbir Singh,

Regional Officer at CBSE’s Regional Office

in Dehradun, refused to comment on the

Strange: 4yr-old baby comes home with cocaine

A mum was horrified when her four-year-old

daughter came home from daycare with crack

cocaine on her.

Sabrina Straker said that her daughter Serenity

returned from Little Inventors Day Care in New

York to show her small capsules of the white

substance - saying that another child gave it to her

and it was a "tooth".

The mum, who thought the substance looked

suspicious, rushed to the police , who told her it

was crack cocaine.

The mum said to ABC News that her daughter

was behaving in an odd manner, so she

immediately rushed her to the hospital

"She couldn't sit down," Sabrina said.

"She was beyond bouncy, very loquacious, just all

over the place, literally, talking to herself, looking

in the mirror, saying she sees three of herself.

"Once they did the urine test, it came back

positive that she had cocaine in her system".

The outlet reported that daycare officials believe

someone threw the drugs over the school's fence

to get rid of it, and police are now investigating

potential child endangerment charges.

The mum is thankful that her daughter spat the

substance out instead of ingesting it, or she could

have lost her little girl.

The drug typically causes the heart to beat faster,

a raised temperature and over-confidence -

according to Talk To Frank - and carries many

serious risks.

"Had my daughter ingested the capsule and not

spit it out, I would be planning a funeral," Sabrina

said to ABC.

"Luckily because she spit it out she's still here."

Killer dad stuffs daughter's body in suitcase

Plummer’s criminal convictions allow the state to
seek an extended term. In 2005, he was convicted of
child abuse in Virginia when his 8-month-old son
drowned in a bathtub after he was left unattended, The
Richmond Times-Dispatch reported.

A Virginia man is being charged in association with

the death of his 23 month old daughter. Police found

the toddler girl's body in a suitcase next to train tracks

in New Jersey earlier this year. The child's father has

been arraigned on a count of disturbing or concealing

human remains.

Travis Plummer, a 37-year-old man from Richmond,

VA has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Authorities say Plummer took 23-month-old Te'Myah

Layauna Plummer from her mother in Virginia last fall

and traveled to New Jersey with the decomposing

body wrapped inside a suitcase. The body was found

April 11.

A cause of death hasn't been announced.

Authorities believe Plummer left the suitcase in a

friend's garage in Jersey City, and dumped it near the

tracks after police came to the friend's house in


The FBI tracked Plummer to San Juan, Puerto Rico,

where he was arrested April 19.

The crime is punishable by five to 10 years in prison

under New Jersey law. But the state will be filing a

motion to extend Plummer’s term and seek a larger

sentence, Assistant Prosecutor Lynne Seborowski said.

Plummer’s prior criminal convictions allow the state to

seek an extended term. In 2005, he was convicted of

child abuse in Virginia when his 8-month-old son

drowned in a bathtub after he was left unattended, The

John Legend's wife Chrissy Teigen just released some

new pics of her body - out pregnancy. Chrissy just

gave birth 6 months ago, and she's proud of her new


Before giving birth, Chrissy was a model for men's

magazines - like Maxim and Sports Illustrated.

But her body has gone through a lot of changes since

then. And some of her "fans" don't think that the new

pics of Chrissy are very flattering.

Here are some of the comments online:

  • It must be painful for her to see her old pics from being a Sports Illustrated model to this...
  • She looks like my laundry lady
  • Why does this woman call herself a model?
  • Standards are slipping these days.

Chrissy is hoping to change the look of models - so

that women of all shapes are accepted into the field.
