MEMPHIS, TN – A mother from Memphis allegedly threatened to blow up her son’s school after becoming angry over he son’s lost backpack.

The 30-year-old parent, Loretta Clayton, said:

Some kids will be missing.”


Court documents reveal that a teaching assistant told local police that she responded to a call from Clayton. The mother had called seeking information about her son’s lost backpack. She then grew angry and threatened to blow up the school.

Clayton concluded the conversation but called back. This time she spoke with the principal. The woman said her name was Loretta Treadwell, which is her maiden name.

She was warned by the principal to not threaten the elementary school.

The principal told police that the mother did call previously that week regarding the lost backpack.



Clayton was charged with the threat of mass violence on school property which is a misdemeanor. Her court date is set for Thursday.




Memphis parents arrested after police say they gave their son, 4, a lethal dose of fentanyl

MEMPHIS, TN – It’s a horribly disturbing case of child abuse… now the parents are under arrest.

A four-year-old boy died of a fentanyl overdose in a motel room in 2019.  His mother and father were recently arrested for giving him the lethal drug.

Jon Allen and Kristen Raley were arrested earlier this week.  They were charged with first degree murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated child abuse under the age of eight.


US Marshal, Tyreece Miller announced the arrests.  It is alleged that they gave the child fentanyl while in a motel room and caused his death.

Raley was arrested at a residence on the 1900 block of Hartland by investigators with the U.S. Marshal’s task force.  The Shelby County Fugitive Apprehension Team assisted.

Yesterday, Allen was found at a residence on the 2500 block of Horizen Lake Drive and taken into custody.

“The U.S. Marshals Service is glad to assist with fugitives that have arrest warrants for crimes that bring suffering or death to the most vulnerable victim, a child,” said U.S. Marshal Tyreece Miller to Fox13.

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid, similar to morphine.  The National Insitute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) warns that it is 50-100 times more potent than morphine.  It’s only legal use is to treat severe pain or chronic pain in patients who have a high tolerance to other pain killers.

Information about why these parents gave their little boy fentanyl has not yet been released.

Fentanyl can be deadly even in the smallest of doses.  The parents of a two-year old little girl are facing criminal charges after she accidentally got into their stash and died of an overdose.  This was reported in the Denver Post in April of this year.

Fentanyl is highly toxic.  It can be absorbed into the body in a number of ways.

Fentanyl can be used to contaminate food or water.  It can be released into the air as fine particles or as an aerosol spray.  And, if it’s released into the air it can contaminate agriculture.  It can be inhaled, eaten or absorbed through the skin.  This is all according to the CDC.

In 2018 the DEA issued a warning to Police and the Public indicating that carfentanil, commonly known as fentanyl is about 10,000 times more potent than morphine.

Part of the DEA warning reads:

“Exercise extreme caution. Only properly trained and outfitted law enforcement professionals should handle any substance suspected to contain fentanyl or a fentanyl-related compound. If encountered, contact the appropriate officials within your agency.”

It continues:

“Seek IMMEDIATE medical attention. Carfentanil and other fentanyl-related substances can work very quickly, so in cases of suspected exposure, it is important to call EMS immediately. If inhaled, move the victim to fresh air. If ingested and the victim is conscious, wash out the victim’s eyes and mouth with cool water.”


Police save the life of little girl, 7, after “worst child abuse case” that they’ve ever seen

VERNON PARISH, LA– Three people in Vernon Parish have been placed behind bars and a seven-year-old girl is being treated for injuries.

Allen Clayton Fulks, 20 years old of Rosepine, Dakota Wayne Singletary, 22 years old of Lake Charles, and Stacy Lynn Tharpe, 29 years old of Rosepine are all being charged with second-degree cruelty to a juvenile.

Sheriff Sam Craft of the Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office (VPSO) posted on Facebook about the case, saying:

“One of the worst, if not the worst case of child abuse that has occurred in Vernon Parish.”

According to brproud, Fulks and Singletary are being charged with severely beating the child and Tharp is being charged with witnessing them do it and then attempting to conceal the girls whereabouts by leaving her unattended.


Detectives discovered the young girl and her deplorable condition through various incidents that led them to her, where they found her alive, but severely injured.

Here is what led them to her:

Just before 9:30 p.m. on July 6th, Rosepine Police Officer Robert Green and Louisiana State Trooper Peter Smith responded to a vehicle accident on Lockhart Cutoff Road in the Rosepine area. When they arrived, the officers found Singletary and Fulks inside the vehicle with minor injuries.

As both officers were investigating the scene, Tharp arrived with her children. Due to Rosepine being a pretty small town, Officer Green knew that Tharp was caring for an additional child, who was not with her.

Green questioned Tharp about the additional child and she indicated that the child’s mother had her. However, a witness at the scene advised the officers that the young girl was still in Tharp’s care.

This prompted Officer Green and Trooper Smith to go over to Tharp’s home, where they found the young girl suffering from severe bruising and eyes practically swollen shut. The young girl was clearly suffering from an extensive beating.

VSPO Detective David Vance was contacted. He responded to the scene and immediately began an investigation, learning that the young girl’s mom had left her in Tharp’s care back in February.  She has since not returned.

The young girl was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where an examination showed “significant and acute bruising” over her entire body.

The young girl said Singletary and Fulks had repeatedly beaten her with their fists and choked her until she lost consciousness and that her hair had been cut off.

Sheriff Craft said the little girl told the deputies:

“She was tired and couldn’t take the abuse any longer.”

After Singletary and Fulks were treated for their injuries from the car accident, they were taken to the Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office where they were questioned by Detective Vance regarding the young girls injuries.

During the course of the conversation with Vance, both men admitted to abusing the child.

Singletary and Fulks were arrested and each charged with three counts of second-degree cruelty to a juvenile. They are both being held at the Vernon Parish Jail on a $450,000 bond each set by District Judge Tony Bennett.

The day after, Vance conducted an interview with Tharp, who admitted to witnessing the child being abused.

Since she failed to report the abuse and attempted to hide the child and left her home alone, Tharp was arrested and charged with one count of principal to second-degree cruelty to a juvenile. She is being held at the Vernon Parish jail on a $300,000 bond.

Detectives have not been able to locate the young girls mother that dropped her with Tharp months ago, but they were able to locate the biological father and are now working jointly with a social worker from the Department of Child and Family Services on the case.

The young girl continues to undergo medical treatment for the multiple injuries she sustained. Sheriff Craft thanked Rosepine Police Department Officer Green, Louisiana State Trooper Peter Smith, and Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office Detective David Vance for their diligence and hard work in the rescue of this young girl.

According to the American Press, Sheriff Craft said:

“Investigators firmly believe this child would have become a tragic statistic if not for the efforts of these officers.”
