Gregory Collins, 19, and Anthony Hill, 30, were coworkers at the Louis Rich plant in Newberry, South Carolina. It seems they’d spent most of Tuesday together. But by the wee hours of yesterday morning, something had gone very wrong…
Police still don’t know why, but Collins decided to shoot Anthony in the head at his trailer home in Pomaria. Anthony appears to have died instantly.
Collins carried the body outside, used a rope to tie it to his truck, then went for a drive. The body wasn’t freed until the rope broke nearly 11 miles later. A passing motorist discovered Anthony’s body at 4:30 a.m.
Since he’s a trailer park goober, Collins apparently never considered that all that blood would leave a trail for police straight back to his home. They banged on Collins’ door, but he refused to come out. Since he was considered armed and degenerate, a three-hour standoff ensued. Police finally smoked him from the trailer using tear gas.
Detectives found a selection of high-powered rifles in the house, but they still don’t know the reason for the murder. According to Anthony’s landlord, he was as likable as they come. “He’s been very responsible, very polite, very responsive, when he comes to pay he was always on time,” Kay Porter told WIS-TV.
Local police have called in the feds to investigate whether it was a hate crime, but we’re guessing that won’t come to anything — at least from the information we have now. The two men apparently knew each other for months, worked together and seemed to be friends.
Unless they can prove Collins was plotting to kill Anthony all this time solely for his race, it seems this is nothing more than a goober gone wild — with Anthony paying the consequences.
Vergie Dean, 41, of 425 W. Bancroft St., was stabbed early Friday morning after coming home around 1:00 a.m. Police say her son, Aaron Dean, 18, was upset with his mother for not bringing him home a cheeseburger, along with the fast food she brought home for herself.
The teen attacked his mother, stabbing her in the arm with a butcher knife. In the altercation, Vergie stabbed her son in the hand with another small knife, according to authorities.
Aaron Dean was arrested a short time later and charged with felonious assault.
Both mother and son were treated at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center for non-life threatening wounds.
A HIV-positive man police say has been knowingly exposing, and possibly infecting, others since 1996 in now in custody.

GREENWOOD, IN – UPDATE: Greenwood Police arrested 47 year-old Tony Perkins Friday for two counts of witholding information. Police asaid Perkins slept with multiple women without telling them he has AIDS. Perkins was arrested at his apartment Friday afternoon and taken to Greenwood Police headquarters where he confessed he had slept with at least eleven women without disclosing to them he had full blown AIDS.
“He’s not a man, he’s a monster,” said one woman who Perkins slept with .
“He told me he had AIDS,” said Perkins ex-girlfriend who turned him in.
“He doesn’t care about anyone but himself he’s an addict, a sex addict.”
Police think Perkins was infected more than six years ago. In fact, Indiana health department officials warned Perkins not to have unprotected sex with women knowing he was contagious with the HIV virus. According to the probable cause report exclusively obtained by Fox59, Perkins wanted to exact revenge on the woman who gave him HIV.
It’s unclear who he contracted it from but reports are he possibly got it from a prostitute or an ex-girlfriend. According to Perkins ex-girlfriend, Perkins said he felt any woman who slept with him on the first few dates deserved to get HIV from him. He told another alleged victim he was allergic to latex, and couldn’t wear a condom.
The victim told Fox59 she believed him and had unprotected sex. The two female victims Fox59 exclusively spoke to say, so far, they’ve tested negative for HIV.
Fox59 tried to talk to Tony Perkins but he didn’t have much to say as Greenwood Police took him in handcuffs and placed him in the wagon to go to the Johnson County Jail outside Franklin.
“I didn’t do anything wrong,” said Perkins as he got into the van. “I was just trying to find a woman to be in my life.”
Police believe that’s a lie. His former lovers say he picked up women on the internet singles site plentyoffish.com. His ex girlfriend said his m.o. was to invite women to his Greenwood apartment and tell them they could drink wine and get high.
Police still don’t know why he did it, but 30-year-old Pressley Antonio McCray decided to go off on his girlfriend with a week of non-stop torture. According to detectives in Camden, South Carolina, McCray kidnapped the woman and tied her up with an electrical cord in his home…
Over the next six days, her raped her with a broom stick and a lead pipe. He assaulted her with a butcher’s knife and poured hot water on her — all while his own toddler was in the home.
The woman managed to escape once, but McCray caught her and beat her again. It wasn’t until day 6 that she finally managed to flee for good while he slept. She drove his truck to a convenience store and called 911.
Police say the 22-year-old woman suffered injuries from head-to-toe. She’s recovering in a hospital, but is apparently going through severe trauma.
Aaron Pace, a longtime friend of the mother’s family, was babysitting the boy, Suliaman Orrell Kirkland, on Feb. 2 when he doused a rag with Drano and rubbed it into the child’s skin, police said.
“Why did he do it? Because the child, in the defendant’s view, was uncooperative and crying, doing what 20-month-old children do,” Homicide Lt. Philip Riehl said.
The child’s great-grandmother, Connie Kirkland, 74, called the boy “a jewel.”
“To see that he went through all this agony, I can’t understand,” she said.
Neffateria Kirkland, 24, the child’s aunt, said that Pace had told her family the boy mysteriously got hurt when he was giving him a bath.
Family members said they learned only yesterday from police about the alleged circumstances that led to the murder charge.
Several of Pace’s relatives were in the house, in the 4500 block of North 18th Street, but did not witness the alleged killing, Riehl said. Both families live on the same block.
When they discovered the injured boy, one of them called the child’s mother, who then called for medical help, Riehl said.
Rescue workers and police arrived at the house and found the boy suffering from severe chemical burns to his arms, Riehl said.
His mother, Quintesha Kirkland, 27, had started a new job the day before, Neffateria Kirkland said. Since then, she had been in the hospital at her baby’s bedside.
Pace, who was being held last night at Police Headquarters, often referred to himself as the boy’s godfather, Riehl said.
Connie Kirkland said her family had known Pace since he was a child.
“He was a gentleman,” she said
Here’s what popped off. Angelina claims the two met in a Scottsdale, Ariz., casino last year, when Green still played for the Arizona Cardinals. They hit it off, and went back to his condo.
Then things went left. She says that Eric raped her. And afterwards, he became “extremely agitated and threatening,” and warned: “This never happened. You’d better not tell.”
