Violent Crimes in Phoenix

On Behalf of / Friday, 27 April 2018 / Published in assault, battery, Homicide, Pedestrian Accident, Personal Injury

Drive by Shooting

Sadly drive by shootings rarely go well for the person being shot at. According to the Phoenix police, a victim of a recent drive by shooting has passed away.

The victim was later identified as twenty-five year old, Kyle Begley. The reports said that the young man was shot around 2:30 p.m. and it was near Oraibi Drive. Oraibi is a quiet little neighborhood near the 7th Avenue and the Loop 101.

According to the police, Begley had to be taken to the local hospital due to his “extremely critical” condition. Sadly he later was pronounced dead at the local hospital.

Police said Begley was seen having a conversation with another man in the driveway of his home. The suspect got into his vehicle, then fired a shot at Begley and drove away from the area.

Neighbor, Dawn Woolworth’s Statement:

All of a sudden, I heard a loud pop and I’m like, what is that?  I’ve lived in this place for 31 years and nothing ever happens here.

A number of police units responded to the scene, along with the Arizona Humane Society. Officers on the scene said they asked for assistance from animal control because they were having trouble with one or more dogs at the victim’s residence.

Police have been asking neighbors for surveillance video.

Police said the suspect was in an older model sedan. The vehicle was silver and possibly a Honda.

The investigation is ongoing.

Children Abused in Apartment

Sometimes apartment’s get a bad rap. Most people think that apartments are gross and filthy and in some cases, like this one they’re right. Sadly two children under three years old were found living in an apartment which had mold, feces, rotting food and bugs in it. This was in Glendale.

The Glendale police reported that on September 29th they arrived on a call to an apartment near 55th Avenue and Camelback Road. The manager of the apartment’s saw a seventeen month old little girl in a playpen which was covered in flies. How heartbreaking for that poor baby that has no defense for it’s self.

The police say that the home was horrible. It smelled like “decomposing body” inside. They also found the little girl and her two and a half year old brother.

The officers found black mold in the apartment as well as nasty standing water on the floor. How gross is that? Officers also saw rotting food, bugs, and both of the children were covered in dirt.

According to the police, the little boy had feces on both sides of his little face. He also had his name written on his forearm with a marker. Poor little guy.

Luckily, the Arizona Department of Child Safety removed the children from the home. They took them to the local hospital to be evaluated.

The father, twenty-five year old, George Philip Riefler told the police that his apartment had been that way for around three months. He told the police that he had been depressed and felt overwhelmed lately. Well yea, of course is your house is nasty like that you’re going to be depressed and definitely over whelmed.

The young father was arrested on two counts of child abuse.
