Mother ‘bit her 16-year-old daughter’s nipple during vicious and bloody domestic fight’
Joy(less) Young – those eyes are seriously creepy looking.
This story was posted by Benighted on our Open Thread a while ago. It’s too freaking funny to not be posted.
Joy Young (38), who appears to be the opposite of her namesake, was arrested and charged with child abuse after it was alleged that she bit her 16 year old daughter’s nipple during a fight.
According to police, Joy (who was not a Joy to be around) was arguing with her daughter Diamond LaCrystal Simmons about a social security check at their Vero Beach home in Flori-DUH. You see, 16 year old Diamond LaCrystal is the proud mother of a 2 month old bouncing baby boy. Shine bright like a Diamond indeed…So anyway, an argument broke out because Diamond was trying to apply for Social Security money so that she could spend it on herself instead of her baby. That shit didn’t fly with Joy, because Diamond would always go out and leave the baby with her. A tussle broke out and nipples got bitten.
A bit nipple bleeds a lot, and police were greeted with a scene reminiscent of the scene from The Shining where the blood rushes out of the lift. The officer noted that Diamond had a massive bloodstain on her shirt and scratches on her face. Joy emerged from the fracas without any injury.
Joy must have some super sharp teeth to get through a tshirt and a bra in order to bite Diamond on the nipple. I’m not sure how the mechanics of that would work, to be honest.
As you can see, this story was too funny to not publish. A ridiculous name, strange method of abuse, welfare fraud and all round trashiness. Thanks go to Benighted for this gem.
Herrmans sentenced to prison time in fraud case:
The last we heard the adoptive Breeders of Adam Herrman pleaded guilty to fraud for collecting government benefits while Adam was missing since 1999. He wasn’t reported missing until 2008. He went missing at the age of 11 and has not been found. The Herrmans allegedly didn’t report him missing in fear of losing their other children.
When I started reading the article I was pumped to read that they were sentenced to the max. However I was highly disappointed to read that the sentences for Doug and Valerie Herrman were only nine months and seven months respectively.
I hope the authorities in Kansas really turn up the heat in those months to find out what really happened to Adam.
Herrmans plead guilty to theft:
In case you don’t remember the story of Adam Herrman a then 11-year-old Adam went missing from his adoptive parents’ house back in 1999. However he was never reported missing until his sister reported in back in 2008. Herrman’s adopted parents, Doug and Valerie Herrman, continued to collect government benefits for Adam up until 2005. The benefits exceeded the $50K mark.
Last week the Herrman’s pleaded guilty to defrauding the state of Kansas. No word on what the possible sentence could be but they are scheduled to be sentenced August 1st.
The Herrmans claim that Adam ran away and that the reason they never told anyone was because they were afraid the state would take their other kids away.
Prosecutors say that the Herrmans could still be charged for Adam’s disappearance.
Adam Herrman’s adoptive parents charged with fraud:
It’s been a while since we last heard anything about Adam Herrman. For those of you who may not know 11-year-old Adam disappeared from his Butler County, Kansas home in 1999. However his adoptive Breeders, Doug and Valerie Herrman, did not report him missing until late 2008. No body has been found however investigators believe that Adam is dead.
However from 1999 to 2005 the Herrmans collected government benefits on behalf of Adam totaling to the amount of $52,800. Today they turned themselves in on charges of welfare fraud.
The Herrmans claim that they didn’t report Adam missing because they feared losing their other children to the state.
Mother charged in death of quadriplegic girl:
Adoptive mom charged with murder of quadriplegic Flint girl, 9:
40-year-old Lorrie Thomas of Flint, Michigan was the aunt and adoptive mother of 9-year-old Shylea Myza Thomas.
Shylea was quadriplegic due to a suffocation issue that happened when she was only 3-weeks-old. Her biological mother abandoned her early on and no one is sure what happened to her.
Lorrie Thomas was arrested last week accused of abusing and murdering Shylea. An anonymous relative called DHS concerned about Shylea. Investigators eventually found her emaciated body in a storage unit inside a trash bag filled with moth balls. Her body was said to have untreated bed sores and bones sticking through the skin and she only weighed 33 pounds at the time of her death. It’s believed that Thomas would deny Shylea food as well.
Lorrie Thomas lived in a filthy residence with her penis and 7 kids. She’s also been charged with evidence tampering and welfare fraud in this case so I’m guessing she kept cashing the checks after Shylea was dead.

Detroit couple plead guilty in child’s death:
In 2007 Detroit police were investigating Nickella Reid and Joseph Miller on child abuse claims when their 1-year-old son Nicholas Miller was brought to the hospital with burns over 35% of his body. During that investigation Reid told police of 2-year-old Deuntay Miller’s death and that they cremated Deuntay’s body on a barbecue grill to avoid funeral costs. Except further investigations found that while they were avoiding funeral costs the pair were still collecting welfare benefits in Deuntay’s name.
Monday they entered pleas to the charges against them…
Nickella Reid, 23, pleaded guilty in Wayne County Circuit Court to involuntary manslaughter and welfare fraud in connection with the death of her son, Deuntay Miller, prosecutors said.
Joseph Miller, 28, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for Deuntay’s death.
When one of these welfare fraud cases happens it always makes me wonder what they spent the money on that they deemed more important than the death of their own son.
