An Ohio woman busted shoplifting has attracted attention for her rather unusual mugshot that features her full-face skull tattoo. Alyssa Zebrasky, 27, (pictured in current mugshot and inset in 2012) was arrested around 6:30pm Wednesday when police were called to the Walmart in Boardman Township after she was caught stealing a bag. During a search, police said they found a hypodermic needle, a ‘whitish rock like substance’ and an ‘orange pill’ in containers inside her purse.

Zebrasky last posted photos to Facebook in 2012, when she had very little tattoos and lighter hair.

Her mugshot has since garnered media attention due to the pronounced tattoos on her face. What appears to be a spider’s web is stretched across her forehead while skull-like features surround her eyes, cover her nose and can be spotted on the sides of her face and on the skin above and below her lips.

Video footage of the incident at a Cleveland hotel in February emerged on Friday, and the Chiefs said in a statement that the footage proved that Hunt had been ‘untruthful’ with investigators.

The Chiefs said that Hunt would be released ‘immediately’. Hunt, 23, had helped propel the Chiefs to first place in the AFC with a 9-2 record, and had been seen as one of the team’s best shots of securing a Super Bowl title. It is now unclear whether he will ever play again. In addition to being cut from the Chiefs, Hunt has been placed on the NFL Commissioner Exempt list, meaning he is barred from practicing, playing in or attending games.

Largo police officials said the suspect—now identified as Bryant Farfan—had entered the All About Puppies store on October 2 and successfully acquired the fawn-colored dog. He used a stolen Florida driver’s license and falsified adoption records, ABC Action News reported.

Pet store manager Allie Julian told ABC Action News: “The only thing we are hoping for is the safe return of our puppy. We’re offering a $1,000 reward in hopes that someone will do the right thing and return her to us.” Police said “probable cause exists for Farfan’s arrest.”

On social media, police posted mugshots of Farfan, including one of him dressed as a woman. It posted a snap of the French Bulldog when it was 8 weeks old. The dog is now 5 months old.

Surveillance footage released showed Farfan holding the puppy while in the pet store.

Two men have been arrested on homicide charges after authorities say a third man was lured to a home and stabbed to death over a stolen game console late Monday.

Seminole County deputies believe Jake Bilotta, 22, and Ian McClurg, 21, coaxed Joshua Barnes, 24, to the home they shared near Maitland and killed him in revenge over a stolen PlayStation, Sheriff Dennis Lemma said.

Deputies were called to the home at 1917 South Boulevard just before midnight. A third roommate, Walter Johnson — who had only lived in the home for about a week — had just arrived home from a Tinder date and found Bilotta in the process of putting Barnes’ body in plastic bags, Lemma said.

He had been stabbed several times with a seven-inch chef’s knife.

Lemma said Barnes had previously lived with Bilotta and McClurg, but had been evicted for about two weeks. Bilotta and McClurg suspected Barnes had broken into their home and stolen the game console, the sheriff said.
