Erica Flores Dunahoo rented space in a trailer park when she and her husband fell on hard times. Dunahoo bragged to her husband and friends about how personable her landlord, Gene Baker, seemed to be. “He was real nice He invited me to church and gave me a hug” she said.

Ahsir Simmons, just 7 weeks old, was snatched by a woman in a Pennsylvania mall.The suspect, Cherie Amoore, had befriended the victim’s mother, Malika Turner for about 30 minutes prior to the incident. Amoore, 32, asked if she could hold the baby while Turner tended to her other kids in a food court. The suspect then fled on foot out of the King of Prussia Mall. Supposedly, Amoore had a baby in February which only survived for a few hours. She was planning to pass the 7-week-old off as her own as she had already begun showing the child off to her family and friends. An Amber Alert was issued and surveillance footage from the mall as well as the virality of social media helped police to find Amoore and reconnect the Turner family. Amoore is charged with felony kidnapping, unlawful restraint, and false imprisonment. She’s being held on $500,000 bail. CBS

Abandoned Child Accused Of Witchcraft Makes Miraculous Recovery 

The African Children’s Aid Education and Development Foundation, rescued a toddler named Hope who was near death after being severly malnourished. He had been abandoned by his Nigerian family because they believed he was a witch, a peculiar assumption that according to aid worker Anja Ringgren Lovén isn’t uncommon. “Thousands of children are being accused of being witches and we’ve both seen torture of children, dead children and frightened children,” she said. “This shows why I fight. Why I sold everything I own. Why I’m moving out in uncharted territory.” The infant is awaiting surgery for hypospadias, a common condition that affects the urethra. In the interim, Hope has found a new home in an orphanage where he’s been embraced and loved by his 35 new brothers and sisters. Huff Post
