"PREGNANT WOMAN FETISH"

 

Our darknet source revealed the following:

 

Allegedly, their is a private group page which consists of men looking to inflict violence on pregnant women.

 

These men advertise for pregnant women, saying: "They will slap  and punch them but promise not to harm the baby," for a large fee.

 

One of the comments (on the page) stood out.

 

Allegedly, a poor single woman took one of the men up on the offer. When she arrived at his home, he unleashed a pit bull on her. She had to run for safety (while he stood on his porch and grinned) but she didn't complain too much because she was still paid (I guess that's why the comment wasn't deleted).

 

 

ALSO:

 

A man who allegedly pimped out a pregnant women to 'fetish' clients on Craigslist for $200 a trick has been charged with false imprisonment.

 

Justin Robert Muoio, 32, is accused of posting adverts for the woman on Craigslist as a 'pregnant prostitute' for 'fetish clientele'.

 

The 23-year-old woman, who says she was forced to have sex with strangers for two months of her pregnancy in 2013, is also alleged to have been kept inside Muoio's apartment on the outskirts of Miami.

 

Muoio was arrested in August 2014 after a 'heated altercation' with the woman, who then tried to leave the apartment but was locked in.

 

She was trapped inside for 90 minutes until Muoio's mother Louise Henig-Muoio, 65, went outside briefly, the Miami Herald reported.

 

But the woman later told Sergeant Misael Reyes that Muoio had 'physically forced her' to meet men for sex since 2009 through a company called VIP Escort Services.

 

The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, would meet eight to 10 men a day, six days a week, according to a search warrant.

 

The warrant also stated that the woman started living with Muoio and his mother, with the man taking the money she earned and 'restricting where she could go and who she could talk to'.

 

Investigators seized two phones Muoio is accused of using to take photos and post adverts on Craigslist, before communicating with clients.

Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said: 'Human trafficking cases, or modern day slavery, involve unspeakable and unthinkable acts of inhumanity.

'This reality sinks deeper with each new victim we rescue.'

 

Muoio is on house arrest awaiting trial on charges of battery and false imprisonment. He denies the allegations.

 

Ms. Muoio has also been charged with false imprisonment.

"TWISTED"

 

by: Holly Fainier

 

Detroit — The bodies of two dead children lay inside a freezer for months in a low-income townhouse on Detroit's near east side, while two siblings lived there with their mother, who was handcuffed, taken into custody and questioned by police.

The woman, identified as 35-year-old Mitchelle Blair, had not been charged by prosecutors as of Tuesday evening in connection with the deaths of her children, a boy about 11 years old and a girl about 14.

Blair's Facebook profile declared: "Loyal to my babies." One recent post was of the words: "There is no greater blessing than being called Mom."

"This is so tragic," said neighbor Tori Childs. "They were the nicest kids, so respectable."

It was not immediately known if the two surviving children, ages 11 and 17, were aware the bodies of their sister and brother were in the home. They were being questioned by police and social workers Tuesday, police said, and are in protective custody.

The children's frozen bodies were found around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday inside a townhouse at the Martin Luther King homes on the 800 block of St. Aubin by a crew from 36th District Court charged with evicting Blair for non-payment of rent. The bailiffs, whose job is to clear furniture out of the townhouse, first discovered the female child and dialed 911, police said. The boy's body was found later in the freezer, according to police.

Terrance West, a member of the eviction crew, said the freezer was next to the front door.

"Unfortunately, we see a lot of bad things on this job," he said.

Neighbor Shanetria Lanier, 21, said people in the apartment complex wondered what happened to the two children, who suddenly dropped out of sight about a year ago.

"When people asked her where her other two kids are, she said they were at their aunt's house," Lanier said. "Or sometimes she'd tell people they stayed inside because they didn't like to be around people."

Lanier added that Blair home-schooled her kids. "That's why no schools were wondering where they were," she said. An official with Detroit Public Schools said there was no record of the children attending classes in the district.

Childs said she saw the children's bodies inside the home Tuesday shortly after police arrived.

"When we walked past, we saw two bodies on the floor," said Childs, 33. "It was a little girl and a little boy. The little girl had on a pink jacket."

Childs said Blair told her, "I'm sorry" before police took her away in handcuffs.

Marlon Blair, Mitchelle's brother, said he was still processing the news.

"It's too early to even say what this could be, or to make any judgments," said Marlon Blair, who lives in California. "She didn't have any emotional problems from what I'm aware of. I don't know what to say about this."

After finding the bodies, officers quickly took the mother into custody as a person of interest, after another resident of the complex told police she was with a relative also living there, Police Chief James Caig said.

Craig confirmed Blair had two other children who lived in the home.

It is unclear where the surviving children were at the time of the eviction, he said.

Lanier said her sister received a call around 6 a.m. Tuesday from Blair.

"She said she was getting evicted and the Dumpsters were out front," Lanier said.

Lanier said the woman asked to stay at Lanier's sister's home with two of her children Tuesday, and was there when her children's bodies were found.

Craig said no weapons were found in the home.

Autopsies to establish how the two children died had not been performed yet Tuesday.

"It's unknown at this point what factors were involved in this," Craig said.

Blair has lived in the complex at least 10 years. She was unemployed, was having money troubles and had gotten behind on her rent, said friend and neighbor Shay Wilson, 37.

Childs' mother, Carrie McDonald, also lives in the complex and said she spoke by phone Tuesday morning with Blair.

"She told me this morning, 'Ms. Carrie, if you don't never see me again just know that I love you,' " McDonald said. "I love her. The mother is a beautiful person. She was just going through some things."

A police source familiar with the investigation said Blair was cooperating with detectives.

Blair was sued by Martin Luther King Apartments for non-payment of rent six times going back to 2004. An eviction order was filed Feb. 11, and signed by District Judge Beatrice Pennie. On March 9, a judgment by consent was entered for the $2,354.50 she owed the complex.

In 1999, Blair filed a paternity suit in Wayne Circuit Court. The father was ordered to pay child support. She filed a second paternity suit against a different man in 2007, which also resulted in an order to pay child support

She had an outstanding arrest warrant from a December 2006 case in which she was driving an unregistered vehicle without insurance, court records show. After failing to pay the ticket, a warrant was issued in January 2007. The warrant was rescinded Tuesday.

Police initially reported Tuesday that a single body, that of a 45- to 50-year-old female showing signs of trauma, had been found in the freezer. Craig confirmed around 1:30 p.m. the bodies of two children had been found.

This is the second high-profile slaying of a child in recent years at the Martin Luther King Apartments. In December 2012, Semeria Greene fatally stabbed her 8-year-old daughter, Tameria. She was convicted of second-degree murder last year, and sentenced to 23-50 years in prison.

Update! Police say their mother, Mitchelle Blair, admitted she killed 9-year-old Stephen Berry and 13-year-old Stoni Blair after she discovered they had been molesting a young relative, two police sources familiar with the case said.

"NOSTALGIA"  (WHERE ARE THEY NOW?)

 

Remember The Jets? They were the 8 siblings who had us jammin’ to their hits “You got It All, “Crush On You,” and many more back in the mid 80’s. Then all of sudden we never heard from the Polynesian family with the R&B sound again.

So what happened? Well based on what they explained in this recent interview, a LOT happened -from being robbed of millions of dollars, stricken with cancer, and family turmoil. They said they faced some extremely tough times after their fame subsided.

We had a local agent that had heard he [Don Powell, the guy who ultimately ended up becoming their manager] had retired. [Don] used to work for Motown Records. He decided he would go back into the business. He ended up getting back with some of his old friends in the business and helped produce the group and arrange for some demos and ended up shopping us and, because of the music people in Minneapolis, they ended up seeing The Jets.

 

We were signed I believe to his production deal. He had a company called Twin Town Sounds and he signed us to that. Then the record company signed that production company. I’m learning all this now that I’m older, but when you’re eleven, you have no idea what’s going on. We worked hundreds of shows every year. It was later on that you realized the good and bad that came from it.

 

Usually artists can’t recover money that management has taken. Please explain to those who don’t know, why that is.

I think it becomes a crazy web. All these people. All these sponsors. Record company people. Promoters. Everyone working for the management. For awhile, believe me, we were all really bitter. We were all really hurt by it because we were young. By the time our career was over, I [Moana] just turned seventeen. We had like a six year stint in the business. I’m seventeen and I’m like done. We were all in our late teens, early twenties. We had to go work in clubs and bars again. It was really humiliating for us to go back into casinos and get paid peanuts. We didn’t know anybody in the business. It was like they moved on. “The Jets? That’s old news. We’ve got New Kids On The Block. We don’t need this little group.”

So, we were pretty much kicked to the curb. We started doing a few USO tours and then it started to hit us as a family. We fought a lot. We struggled on the road. None of us had a real education. It was like we all had G.E.D.s, education equivalent. None of us had gone to college. So, we really got tripped up and we didn’t know anybody in the business and then we were back in Minneapolis, just working the clubs. It was very humiliating for a long time. We were bitter at our manager and just how everything went down. We all kind of walked away from the business. A few of my siblings got married and just thought, “You know what? I’ll start my family. We had an opportunity.

 

We were blessed by it. We got to travel the world and see places many people didn’t get to see, but now we gotta move on and get back to reality.” It was embarrassing to go back to our people thinking that we’re these big, rich, famous people and we’re trying to get work. That part really sucked. For a long time I didn’t speak to my family. We just kind of went our way. I got married and lived in Hawaii for ten years. We never were estranged from our family and our parents, but this business really did a number and we all walked away. Luckily, we all are still very religious in our beliefs and we believe in our family and we all have children now. That alone I think kind of kept us together. It was just kind of like it’s not worth it. Among all of us children, my parents have fifty-three grandchildren. It just wasn’t worth it for us to be bitter for that long. We finally saw [our former] manager a few years ago and just thought “You can’t be that angry that long.” He had a lot of health issues and I think he lost a lot of money. He used a lot our money to try and fund other music projects, but they never panned out.

 

How much money were you taken for? Any idea? In the ’80s, what I can remember, just for the four years, and it…doesn’t seem like a lot now, but back then I think we made between four and eight million dollars. Eight million dollars is what we had made in our four year success for The Jets.

 

Imagine if you had the money today and it had been properly invested?

You learn a lot of life lessons. You can either be bitter or you can move on and say, “Let’s get smart. We’ve learned never to do this again.” I look at the business today, and it’s really a business. People say, “What happened? Where did The Jets go?” I say “We still do music, but we don’t always necessarily do the business part of it.” So, we’re still involved with our music. We still love it. I hated music for a long time because it left a bitter taste after all the hard work we did.

My husband is a musician too. He told me, “You really can’t be angry. You got a gift and you can always use that gift. You can learn from your mistakes. Maybe they were out of your hands, but there’s nothing you can do about it. It’s life. You gotta move forward. If not, you’ll stay bitter and use that to be unhappy. You just can’t do that anymore.” Luckily, we’re still a family. We got together and we struggle together. We just put out a new record. We’ve survived as a family and I think that’s what matters to us most. A lot of musical families don’t make it. They either end up not talking to each other or they keep their distance. We’re still very involved in each other’s lives. We’re a lot more cautious, but we’re a lot more family oriented. The business almost broke our family apart.

 

It took a long time for my parents to convince our manager we needed a house.

 

Did anyone at any time ever ask to see an accounting of the money coming in and the money going out? Your parents?

I don’t think my parents stayed on top of it. I wish they would have. I think they were…trusting him [the group’s manager] that they didn’t ask any questions. It was when the money ran out… It took a long time for my parents to convince our manager we needed a house. We’d been working so hard, we’d been renting. We’d like to buy a house. We finally bought a home for the family. Not even a few years after that, people kept thinking; ‘You guys are making so much money. You’re working all the time. You’re on tour.’ And we weren’t really seeing anything. We were still a family of seventeen. The Jets make up the eight oldest of a family of seventeen children. We weren’t living in these big cribs and had all these cars. We had two, 15-passenger vans, a bigger home that we could finally call our home. It wasn’t anything extravagant considering what we were making at the time. But the questions weren’t asked until it was too late.

By the time the third album came out, our manager was already having issues with the record company and the record company didn’t want to deal with him. The Jets ended up getting screwed in the middle because we didn’t know anybody. I learned now that relationships mean everything. We never knew anybody in the business. We would go in and say ‘hi’ to record company people, but we didn’t have real solid relationships. Everything he did, he had his contacts. A sad tale, but luckily we’re still a family. We’ve actually made amends since then. We’ve seen him. We had a 25th Anniversary Show in Minneapolis and we invited him to it. It was a nice reunion to see him again. We let bygones be bygones and just moved on.

The Jets also said that one of the members, Elizabeth, was stricken with breast cancer in her 20’s but she survived:

“Liz, when she was diagnosed with [breast] cancer, just walked away from the music. We were like 20 — when kids are almost finishing college — and we were like burnt-out, has-been music artists.”
