Death penalty sought in killing of 2 Palm Springs officers

October 27, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

Prosecutors say they’ll seek the death penalty against a man charged with the shooting deaths of two Palm Springs police officers in an ambush earlier this month.

The Riverside County District Attorney on Wednesday announced his intention to seek the death penalty against 26-year-old John Felix.

He has pleaded not guilty to murder, attempted murder and weapons charges.

He’s being held without bail in the shooting deaths of 27-year-old Officer Lesley Zerebny and 63-year-old Officer Jose “Gil” Vega.

Zerebny was a rookie officer just back from maternity leave. Vega was just months away from retirement.

Prosecutors say the officers were responding to a domestic disturbance call on Oct. 8 when Felix opened fire through a metal screen door at his family’s home.

Prosecutors say Felix is a gang member.

BUNCOMBE COUNTY, N.C. — A gas station that recently sold a local woman a $1 million scratch-off had two other $1 million winners this year.

According to the lottery commission, since last July, three $1 million winners have come from Suttles Quik Mart on Newfound Road in Leicester.

A clerk there told News 13 the winners were all from different games.

News 13 wanted to know the same thing. We asked the lottery commission but haven’t heard back as of yet.

AL inmate found with active social media account

October 27, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

ELMORE COUNTY, AL (WSFA) – Another Alabama inmate has been caught using social media freely inside prison walls.

According to the Alabama Department of Corrections website, Kenneth Holland is an inmate in the Staton Corrections Center in Elmore County. He is serving a 10-year sentence for a burglary conviction in Butler County.

Holland has been quite active on social media over the past week, posting pictures from inside the prison and even videos of himself and other inmates.

In the two videos, which have since been taken down, you can see Holland and other inmates in the dorms.

We brought this account to the department’s attention and early Tuesday evening, the DOC confirmed Holland is responsible for posting the videos.

Holland claims some people are high on drugs, getting up close to one man who is stumbling around the dorm and almost falls a few times. However, the DOC could not confirm the reasons for the inmate’s actions in the video.

In another post by Holland, through comments on a picture, he claims to be holding weed, even going as far as writing, “I got my own route to have it brung [sic] to me.”

Oklahoma murder suspect could be anywhere across continental US

October 27, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

The manhunt for a suspect accused of brutally killing two relatives and wounding two Oklahoma police officers last weekend could be far from over, according to the Oklahoma County Sheriff, who revealed the man could be “anywhere from California to Mexico to Florida.”

The suspect, Michael Dale Vance Jr., also could have died if he never received medical treatment after the shootout that wounded him in Wellston, Okla., Sheriff John Whetsel told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

The sheriff also described the murders of Vance’s relatives as a “rage killing.” He said the suspect apparently was riled up over a child sex abuse case against him. Investigators said the suspect apparently tried to behead the couple.

Whetsel said the last known sighting of Vance, 38, was around 2:30 a.m. Monday at a convenience store in the far western Oklahoma town of Sayre. Authorities say he shot a man in the leg while trying to steal a vehicle in the town that’s about 30 miles from the Texas border.

The suspect has HIV/AIDS and may try to spread the disease, KWTV reported. The news station identified the two killed as Ronald and Valerie Kay Wilkson, Vance’s uncle and aunt.

Paramedic Sued For Posting Graphic Patient Injury Photos On Instagram

October 27, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

WALNUT CREEK (CBS SF) — The family of a Bay Area man who was nearly killed in a horrific motorcycle crash earlier this year is now suing a paramedic for posting graphic pictures of the crash victim’s injuries on social media.

The 21-year-old victim who identified himself as Keyano spoke about his ordeal seven months after the Vallejo motorcycle accident cost him his leg, and almost cost him his life.

While his family deals with new challenges of caring for the young man who had to have one of his legs amputated, they told KPIX 5 about something one of the paramedics who rushed Keyano to the hospital did that added insult to his devastating injury.

“I actually didn’t really read the hashtags until someone brought it to my attention,” said one family member.

The paramedic who transported Keyano to the hospital posted a graphic photo of his mangled leg on an Instagram account.

The text to one of the posts read, “This is what happens when you’re careless in the rain on a motorcycle” and included hashtags like #byebyeankle, #thelouderyouscreamthefasterwego and #oncethedoorscloseyourassismine.

2nd Lawsuit In Dylan Redwine Case Thrown Out

October 26, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

DENVER (CBS4) – A judge has thrown out a second lawsuit involving the parents of Dylan Redwine.

Dylan Redwine was 13 years old when he disappeared from his father’s home in southwestern Colorado four years ago. His remains were found months later.

The boy’s parents continued to squabble and now a judge has dismissed the lawsuit his father, Mark Redwine, filed against his mother, Elaine Hall.

Mark Redwine accused Hall of intentionally inflicting emotional distress saying he was responsible for Dylan’s death.

Last year a judge dismissed Hall’s lawsuit making similar allegations.


Out-of-County Jury for Pennsylvania Barracks Shootings Trial

October 26, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

A man charged with fatally ambushing a state police trooper and wounding another near a rural barracks in eastern Pennsylvania will travel to another county for jury selection in March.

The jury for 33-year-old Eric Frein will be selected in Chester County from March 9-13. The jury will then be bused to Pike County, where the shooting occurred, to try Frein, possibly beginning the first week in April.

Frein is charged with fatally shooting Cpl. Bryon Dickson II and wounding another trooper outside the Blooming Grove barracks in September 2014.

He led police on a tense 48-day manhunt before U.S. marshals caught him about 30 miles from the shooting scene.

Frein has pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.


San Diego judge gives Mexican cocaine kingpin 15-year prison term

October 26, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  2 Comments

As Victor Emilio Cazares Gastellum stood in a San Diego courtroom for sentencing Tuesday, the judge acknowledged the defendant was unlike the vast majority of drug offenders he sees day in and day out.

Cazares was not your typical drug mule caught crossing the border, nor was he a low-level distributor.

Cazares, 53, was a kingpin, the head of a large Mexican drug-trafficking organization aligned with the powerful Sinaloa cartel. He was in the business of shipping tons of cocaine from producers in Colombia and Venezuela to Mexico and distributing the drug throughout the U.S.

Calling Cazares the “leader of a significant organization involved in the wide-scale importation of drugs into the United States,” U.S. District Judge William Hayes sentenced Cazares to 15 years in prison.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration investigation into the organization’s vast network of smugglers and distributors, code named “Operation Imperial Emperor,” turned into one of the largest U.S. investigations against the Sinaloa, resulting in some 400 arrests in the U.S. and Mexico and the seizure of $45 million cash and tons of drugs, prosecutors said.

Family ties solidified his connections to the Sinaloa cartel — his sister is a former mistress of Sinaloa drug lord Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada and his nephew is married to the sister of Sinaloa co-leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said, citing information from sources.

Police identify teen charged with shooting good Samaritan

October 26, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

Police have identified the 17-year-old boy charged with shooting a good Samaritan who got off his bicycle to try to stop an armed robbery in Philadelphia.

Police say Mehdi Fraiji faces charges including attempted murder and aggravated assault in the shooting last week in the city’s exclusive Rittenhouse Square neighborhood.

Officials say the 39-year-old cyclist tried to intervene when he saw the holdup. People were dining at a sidewalk restaurant next to the park where the shooting occurred.

Police say Fraiji grabbed a gun from a co-conspirator and shot the cyclist in the chest, torso and shoulder. The victim was hospitalized in stable condition.

Fraiji is charged as an adult. His public defender couldn’t immediately be reached Wednesday.


Principal brutally beaten after telling teen to remove headphones

October 25, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

The principal at a lower Manhattan high school was beaten to a pulp by a student on Monday when he told the teen to remove his headphones, sources said.

Principal Matthew Tossman of Manhattan Early College School for Advertising, which is in inside Murry Bergtraum HS, spotted 18-year-old Luis Penzo with his headphones blasting in the hallway around noon, according to police sources.

Tossman asked Penzo to turn down the music, and Penzo refused. Then, when Tossman tried to remove the headphones, the 18-year-old student cold-cocked the principal.

Penzo continued to pounce on Tossman, socking him several times in the face, causing swelling and lacerations around both of the principal’s eyes.

Joe Arpaio on the ropes as illegal immigrants join fight to oust ‘America’s toughest sheriff’

October 25, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

PHOENIX — Maricruz Ramirez can’t even vote, but she’s doing everything she can to get others to turn out on Election Day to defeat Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

An illegal immigrant from Mexico, Ms. Ramirez led a group of immigrant rights activists Saturday as they went door to door, hoping to find young or infrequent voters they could entice to turn out, emboldened by the prospect of taking out the Republican lawman who’s been dubbed “America’s Toughest Sheriff.”

This could well be the year.

After cruising to election in his first five races, Sheriff Arpaio barely topped 50 percent of the vote in a three-way race in 2012, and Paul Penzone — the Democrat who was part of that three-way race the last time — is leading the sheriff in the latest polling this year. In fact, it’s not even close: An Arizona State University/Arizona Republic poll released last week put Mr. Penzone at 45.9 percent support and Sheriff Arpaio at just 31.1 percent.

Some analysts have questioned that poll’s sample — and the timing. It was taken just as the Justice Department announced it was pursuing criminal contempt charges against the sheriff, accusing him of continuing racial profiling against Hispanics despite a court settlement that ordered him to cease.

Sheriff Arpaio calls the accusations “a bunch of garbage” and said it wasn’t a coincidence the charges were announced the day early voting started. He said his opponents, ranging from the Obama administration to billionaire liberal crusader George Soros and immigration activists, are pulling out all the stops to defeat him.


Berkeley protesters form human chain to stop white students from getting to class

October 25, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

Students at the University of California, Berkeley held a day of protest on Friday to demand the creation of additional “safe spaces” for transgender and nonwhite students, during which a human chain was formed on a main campus artery to prevent white students from getting to class.

The demonstrators were caught on video blocking Berkeley’s Sather Gate, holding large banners advocating the creation of physical spaces segregated by race and gender identity, including one that read “Fight 4 Spaces of Color.”

Protesters can be heard shouting “Go around!” to white students who attempt to go through the blockade, while students of color are greeted with calls of “Let him through!”

Students turned away by the mob are later shown filing through trees and ducking under branches in order to cross Strawberry Creek, which runs underneath the bridge.

Protesting students went on to march through the Berkeley Student Union, chanting and disrupting students who are studying.

One student, who was not a part of the protest, tells the videomaker that the demonstrators are “being quite childish.”


Former Banker Jutting Pleads Not Guilty to Murder Charges

October 24, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

Rurik Jutting, a former Bank of America Corp. employee, pleaded not guilty to murder on Monday, nearly two years after police found two women dead in his Hong Kong apartment.

“Extremely disturbing” evidence, including Jutting’s mobile-phone recording of the torture of one of his victims, will feature in the case, Deputy High Court Judge Michael Stuart-Moore warned jurors on Monday.

Jutting’s alleged cocaine use will also feature, with the prosecution alleging that 26 bags of the drug were found in his apartment and citing Jutting as saying after the first of the two killings: “I definitely could not have done that without cocaine.”

The trial of the former British banker and Cambridge University graduate, accused of murdering two Indonesian women, is scheduled to run through Nov. 11. The bodies of Sumarti Ningsih, 23, and Seneng Mujiasih, 29, were found at his apartment in the Wan Chai district on Nov. 1, 2014. Jutting was 29 when charged.

October 24, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

PERRY, Ga. — A small Georgia town is reeling after a shocking murder where one of the suspects appears to have been bragging about the crime on social media.

One teenager is dead and tow others are in jail charged with his vicious murder.

One of the 17-year-olds charged in the murder had some unusual posts before and after the killing.

He gave chilling descriptions of violence and there are several posts where it appears he’s gloating about the murder.

Friends describe 18-year-old Samuel Poss as a happy-go-lucky kid. The last time anyone saw the Perry teenager was at a house party on Oct. 14. He was hanging out with his friend, 17-year-old Dakota White.

“No one deserves to be killed, murdered and dumped like that,” Captain Heath Dykes said.

Statewide manhunt underway for Oklahoma man accused of shooting officers, killing couple

October 24, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

A statewide manhunt is underway after a suspect shot two officers near Wellston around 6:30 Sunday.

Officials said the incident took place at the Bear Creek Trailer Park near Highway 102 and Highway 66.

Sheriff’s officials in Lincoln County say two officers were shot responding to a shots fired call.

Officials said three officers were interviewing witnesses when a man walked out of a home and shot one officer in the leg and another in the foot with an AK-47.

Their injuries are non-life-threatening.

Officials said Michael Vance then took an officer’s vehicle, drove to a nearby trailer and stole another car, firing shots at a woman there as well.

Officers found the suspect’s aunt and uncle, Kay and Ron Wilkson, dead in the home. Court records showed that Vance is accused of trying to stab the couple and sever their heads before shooting them.

Vance is still on the run. He reportedly took off in a white Lincoln Towncar with a blue top.

Thirteen killed, 31 injured in California tour bus crash

October 23, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

A tour bus crashed into the back of a tractor-trailer on a Southern California highway before dawn on Sunday, killing 13 people and injuring 31, authorities said.

The bus was traveling west on Interstate 10 when the crash occurred near Palm Springs, a city about 100 miles (160 km) east of Los Angeles, California Highway Patrol (CHP) Chief Jim Abele told reporters.

Abele said because of the bus’ speed, the truck’s trailer pushed about 15 feet into the bus. The bus driver was among the 13 killed, he said. Abele said he believed the 31 injured passengers had minor to moderate injuries, but some could be worse.

“In almost 35 years I’ve never been to a crash where there’s been 13 confirmed,” deaths, Abele said. “So it’s tough. It’s tough for all of us.”

Abele said the bus had been inspected as recently as April and there was no indication of mechanical problems. He said several survivors reported most of the passengers, all of whom were adults, were sleeping at the time of the crash.

Sheriff warns of North Dakota pipeline protesters’ criminal pasts as more arrests made

October 23, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

More demonstrators were arrested Saturday for infiltrating the Dakota Access pipeline construction site as law enforcement warned about a coterie of activists with lengthy criminal records inside the protest camps.

The Morton County [N.D.] Sheriff’s Department reported closing down Highway 1806 and arresting 83 people on rioting charges after about 300 protesters marched three miles into private property at a construction site for the pipeline project.

Officers used pepper spray against some activists after they tried to break the police line, during which one protester grabbed a canister and sprayed an officer in the face.

“Today’s situation clearly illustrates what we have been saying for weeks, that this protest is not peaceful or lawful,” said Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier in a statement. “It was obvious to our officers who responded that the protesters engaged in escalated unlawful tactics and behavior during this event. This protest was intentionally coordinated and planned by agitators with specific intent to engage in illegal activities.”

The latest arrests bring the total to more than 200 since the protest began in August against the 1,172-mile, four-state pipeline led by the Standing Rock Sioux and national environmental groups.

On social media, supporters of the #NoDAPL action insisted the protesters were maced by law enforcement as they attempted to pray.


Ohio Attorney General to cover funeral costs for Rhoden family

October 23, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

Surviving members of the Rhoden family in Ohio are getting $22,500 in state money for funeral expenses, the Columbus Dispatch reported.

Eight members of the extended family were shot and killed April 22 and six months later investigators have not made any arrests.

The Ohio Attorney General’s victim compensation fund has approved maximum $7,500 grants to help pay for funeral costs for Hanna Rhoden, 19, and her brothers, 16-year-old Christopher Rhoden and 20-year-old Frankie Rhoden, the paper reported Saturday.

A claim is still pending for their father, Christopher Rhoden Sr., 40.

The state already paid about $7,300 to help cover the funder costs of 20-year-old Hannah Gilley, Frankie’s fiancée.

The paper reported that crime victim advocates weren’t sure if surviving relatives would be eligible for any crime victim assistance after authorities announced shortly after the murders that they had uncovered a large-scale marijuana-growing operation at two of the four crime scenes.

New York Man Who Shot Into Wrong House Convicted of Murder

October 20, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

A New York man who killed a young mother when he shot into the wrong house has been convicted of murder.

Federal prosecutors say a jury also convicted 39-year-old Damion Colabatistto of drug and weapons charges Wednesday following a trial in Rochester.

Authorities say Colabatistto was an enforcer for a drug organization and was trying to kill a rival drug dealer in 2009 when he and another man fired multiple times into a Rochester house. Moesha Harmon, a 20-year-old mother of two, was killed.

The second shooter, Angelo Ocasio, was convicted in May.

Prosecutors say the men were members of a violent drug organization that was responsible for numerous beatings and shootings and at least three other murders.

MERRIMACK, N.H. (AP) — A veteran high school English teacher has been accused of seeking naked photos of his 16-year-old student and giving her images and videos of himself performing a sexual act, police said.

Pennsylvania man admits to sexually assaulting 6-year-old boy

October 19, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

A Pennsylvania man has admitted he sexually assaulted a 6-year-old boy after authorities say they intercepted an internet broadcast of him raping the child and later discovered 10 other recorded assaults of the boy.

PennLive.com reports 20-year-old William Byers Augusta pleaded guilty in Carlisle on Tuesday to charges including rape of a child.

Prosecutors say Canadian authorities intercepted a broadcast of Byers Augusta sexually assaulting the boy in July 2015.

Investigators found videos showing Byers Augusta assaulting the child, including one of him and 62-year-old Ira Task simultaneously sexually assaulting the child.

Authorities say Task didn’t wear protection despite knowing he had been HIV positive since 1994.

Task was sentenced in June to 17½ to 40 years in prison.


Family friend suspected in triple homicide of pastor and her grandsons

October 19, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A family friend is suspected in a weekend triple homicide that killed a pastor and her two grandsons, Sacramento police said Tuesday.

Jerod Michael Watson, 52, was in a relationship with Twanna Lucas, who returned home Saturday to find her mother and adult sons dead in a housing complex in south Sacramento, police spokesman Sgt. Bryce Heinlein said.

The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office issued a felony warrant charging him with homicide. Police said he is armed and considered extremely dangerous, and he may have fled the state.

Heinlein couldn’t say how investigators linked him to the slayings of Christine Lucas, 68, Marquise Brown, 23, and James Ferrell, 20.

But he said Watson was in a relationship with the boys’ mother, who ran to a nearby fire station to alert authorities when she arrived home to find them dead just before 8 p.m. Saturday. Watson was frequently at the home, he said, though it was not clear if he lived there full time.

“I’m not going to go into specifics as to why we think it happened,” Heinlein said. “We don’t have a motive to go out with yet.”

Deranged woman, 66, shot dead after attacking cop with baseball bat in Bronx

October 19, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

An NYPD sergeant shot and killed a 66-year-old woman wielding a bat in the Bronx on Tuesday, and now cops say they’re looking into why the officer used lethal force instead of his stun gun.

Police were responding to a neighbor’s complaint about Deborah Danner behaving “in an irrational manner” in her Pugsley Ave. building near Seward Ave. in Castle Hill around 6:06 p.m., the NYPD said.

It wasn’t the first time — cops had answered similar calls at the address in the past, said authorities.

Sgt. Hugh Barry was among the officers who entered the seventh-floor apartment and found Danner in a bedroom holding a pair of scissors and threatening cops, police and sources said.


Nearly 400 Cook County Jail Workers Call Off, Possibly For Cubs Game

October 18, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

CHICAGO (CBS) — This is not the first time it happens.

A spokesperson for the Cook County Sheriff’s Office says these unusually large amounts of call-offs are taking place during major sporting or weather events, and it’s becoming an ongoing problem.

Edna Garcia visited her loved one at the Cook County Jail, a day after more than 370 correctional officers called off, possibly due to Cubs fever, CBS 2’s Sandra Torres reports.

“I’m a Cubs fan myself, so I understand the need want to be part of history. But everybody is an adult. We all have responsibilities, and unfortunately we have to sacrifice and need to attend to business,” Garcia said.

The sheriff’s office said less officers called off today, but insists this is an ongoing problem that needs to be addressed by the union.

“It puts in enormous burden on the hardworking men and women who do come into work and taxpayers because we have to hire overtime to keep jail running,” said Cara Smith of the Cook County Sheriff’s office.

Smith says the majority of workers are using the family medical leave coverage. “Even if we suspect that someone maybe misusing that benefit, our only recourse is to send it back to the same doctors that certified them. So we have, the federal law is a problem ”

7 year old helps Baystate Children’s toy drive

October 18, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments


Baystate Children’s Hospital needs your help.  The folks there are hoping that the winter holidays might come early.

The toy shelves at the children’s hospital are bare.  Those toys are used to help children undergoing some tough times, so we teamed up with Baystate to try and make a difference.

Ben Manzi, 7, is a super-hero kid.  He, his little brother Gabe, and his mom Kati collected all these toys for his friends at Baystate’s Children’s Hospital.

It’s a place Ben knows too well.

“Yah, I’ve been here plenty of times.  I’ve even been here once for a whole entire week because I have cancer., leukemia, ALL,” Ben said.

Ben was diagnosed with ALL – or acute lyphocidic leukemia – last December.

“About two weeks after everything started, I was feeling really overwhelmed.  ‘How do you deal with having a kid who has cancer?  How do you deal with life when it changes so dramatically?’ and we were given an anonymous gift of gift cards and I was so touched by the kindness, generosity, and that love,” said Ben’s mother, Kati.

When doctor’s declared Ben in remission in August, they wanted return that generosity and do something to celebrate, so Ben started asking friends, family, anyone who would listen to donate a toy to the kids at Baystate.

Three killed in shootings in two East Alabama homes Saturday night

October 18, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

Three people shot dead Saturday at two Lee Road homes about nine miles apart — one in Smiths Station, Ala., and one in Phenix City — have been identified by Lee County Coroner Bill Harris.

In one of the two homicides, an arrest has been made.

According to official reports, at approximately 3:40 p.m. CDT Saturday, the Lee County Coroner’s office and Lee County Sheriff’s Office received a call from St. Francis Hospital about a deceased victim who had been shot in the arm and chest.

It was determined that Erica Murphy, 38, of Lee Road 851 in the Hickory Bend Subdivision of Phenix City, had been shot by her husband and transported to the hospital by her son.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to the residence along with the Lee County Tactical Team.

A perimeter was secured around the house and nearby houses were evacuated.

At some point, communications broke off and the suspect aimed a weapon at deputies with a laser light, according to official reports, and made threats to shoot law enforcement personnel.

After commands to drop the weapon and a four-hour standoff, Daniel Richard Murphy, 38, was shot by an officer, according to reports.

That was at approximately 10 p.m. CDT.

He was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:25 p.m. CDT.

Ex-boyfriend of Texas woman reported missing charged with kidnapping

October 18, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

The ex-boyfriend of a Texas woman reported missing was arrested Wednesday on a a kidnapping charge, even though she still hasn’t been found.

Police told Fox 4 that 25-year-old Typhenie Johnson was last seen October 10 at an apartment complex in Fort Worth. Her friends told authorities they were immediately suspicious about her disappearance.

Police said that Typhenie’s ex-boyfriend, Chris Revill, was the last person to see her.

Johnson’s twin brother, Asher, said his girlfriend and another friend said they were inside the apartment as the ex-couple talked outside in the parking lot the night she disappeared.

“It had kind of escalated from a regular conversation and making Chris leave here because he was gathering up his stuff,” Asher told Fox 4. “Chris had come back up, and I asked him where my sister went. And he said she jumped into another car.”

Asher said it was out of character for his 25-year-old sister to just leave without telling them, so he went outside to look for her.

“That’s when I had seen his car backed in right back here with the trunk open,” he said.

Wife of missing North Carolina man found dead in creek

October 17, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

The case of a North Carolina man who failed to show up for a 2015 divorce hearing and has been missing ever since has taken a dramatic turn with the discovery of his wife’s body floating in a creek.

WTVD-TV reported that Lillian Terry was found floating in Grassy Creek near the Virginia border Saturday afternoon and that it appeared she had been in the water for several days.

Authorities haven’t said how she died or if her death was suspicious, WRAL.com reported.

Her husband, 57-year-old John Terry, vanished in September 2015 and authorities suspect that he was killed. He disappeared the day he and his wife were scheduled to appear in court on his divorce application.

The station reported that John had filed for a divorce after accusing her of having an affair and trying to poison him.

Lillian Terry has denied her husband’s accusations while alleging that he was cheating on her with a masseuse.

She also said in October 2015 that she had nothing to do with his disappearance and wondered why authorities suspected her.

“I don’t understand why they’re giving me such a hard time because I’ve never been in trouble,” she told WTVD. “I mean, can you see me killing somebody? I mean look at me.”

Lawsuit Against Penn State in Sandusky Case Going to Trial

October 17, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

A lawsuit by a former Penn State coach whose testimony helped convict fellow assistant Jerry Sandusky of being a sexually violent predator goes to trial Monday over allegations that the university defamed him and wrongly refused to renew his contract.

Mike McQueary, now 42, played quarterback at Penn State before becoming a member of Joe Paterno’s coaching staff.

But he became best known as the assistant who went to Paterno in 2001 to report seeing Sandusky, then a retiree with gym privileges, sexually molesting a boy in the team shower. Sandusky was not arrested until a decade later, leading to accusations of a high-level cover-up.

Nine women and three men were chosen for the jury last week. Both sides will make opening statements Monday.

McQueary was suspended with pay from the football program in 2011, when the first charges were brought in the case. Following Sandusky’s conviction in 2012 on charges of abusing 10 boys, McQueary learned he was effectively being terminated from his $140,000-a-year job.

He claims in his whistleblower lawsuit that he was retaliated against for helping prosecutors, wrongly misled by high-ranking administrators who first heard his story in 2001, and defamed.

George Zimmerman shooter sentenced to 20 years in prison

October 17, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

The Florida man who claimed he shot at George Zimmerman in self-defense was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Monday after being found guilty of attempted second-degree murder last month.

Matthew Apperson fired a single bullet at Zimmerman as the two were driving along Lake Mary Boulevard in Seminole County, Fla., in May of last year.

The bullet missed Zimmerman’s head by inches. He sustained minor injuries from shattered glass.

Apperson was convicted of attempted second-degree murder, armed aggravated assault and shooting into a vehicle. Apperson had maintained that he was acting in self-defense after Zimmerman pointed a gun at him.

Zimmerman denied pointing a gun at Apperson, with whom he reportedly had an ongoing feud, but was found to be in possession of two firearms at the time.

Florida Assistant State Attorney Stewart Stone told jurors that Apperson didn’t meet the standard for self-defense, because he failed to act in a “reasonable, prudent or cautious manner” before shooting at Zimmerman.

Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson ultimately sentenced Apperson to 20 years behind bars — the state’s mandatory minimum sentence for his crime.

Zimmerman was famously acquitted for the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012.

He similarly alleged he was acting in self-defense.


Rolling Stone Heading to Trial Over Debunked Story of Rape

October 16, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

For the first time since Rolling Stone magazine’s shocking story about a brutal gang rape at the University of Virginia hit shelves two years ago, the public may hear from the young woman at the center of the now discredited article “A Rape on Campus.”

A defamation trial against the magazine is set to begin on Monday over the November 2014 article about the woman identified only as “Jackie” and her harrowing account about being gang raped in a fraternity initiation. University administrator Nicole Eramo, who counseled Jackie and claims the story cast her as its “chief villain,” is seeking $7.85 million.

Jackie was forced to answer questions about the case in April, but her comments have been kept under wraps. Now, Eramo’s attorneys have said they intend to call Jackie as a witness at trial, although it’s possible the jury will watch a video of her deposition instead of hearing from her in person. An attorney for Jackie declined to comment.

The story described in alarming detail Jackie’s account of being raped by seven men at the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house in September 2012. Eramo’s attorneys claim the article portrayed her as indifferent to Jackie’s plight and only interested in protecting the university’s reputation. After it was published, Eramo, who then served as associate dean of students, received hundreds of emails and letters calling her a “wretched rape apologist” and “disgusting, worthless piece of trash.” Eramo still works for the university, now in a different administrative role.

Ohio Investigators Still Searching for ‘Fearless’ Serial Kidnapper Targeting Young Children

October 16, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

Investigators in Ohio are desperately searching for a serial kidnapper who they say targets young children.

Ohio police, along with the FBI, said the kidnapping of a young girl from her Cleveland home in May is forensically connected to an attempted abduction of another girl in Elyria in February. The more than 300 tips investigators received over the past eight months haven’t led them to the suspect.

“We have one of those very rare occurrences that is actually a stranger abduction and so that makes it even more dangerous,” FBI special agent Vicki Anderson told ABC News.

Authorities describe the suspect as a white male with light brown hair and a “neatly-trimmed” beard. He is about 5-foot-10- and has at least one tattoo, according to ABC Cleveland affiliate WEWS-TV.

He is also believed to be driving a Chevrolet Malibu with a mismatched front panel.

Daughter of U.S. track star Tyson Gay shot dead in Kentucky

October 16, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY – The daughter of U.S. track star Tyson Gay was killed in a shooting at a restaurant in Lexington, officials say.

CBS Lexington affiliate WKYT reports that Trinity Gay, 15, was shot around 4 a.m. Sunday morning, and was pronounced dead about an hour later.

The police statement didn’t identify Trinity Gay by name, saying a juvenile who was struck at the scene was taken by private vehicle to the UK Hospital and later pronounced dead.

Lexington police say the shooting took place at the Cook Out restaurant on South Broadway, and it involved the exchange of gunfire between two cars, which left the scene.

Officials say Gay was shot in the neck, and that she was not in either car involved.

Police say they’re questioning two people of interest in the case, and one of the two vehicles involved is still being sought.

Trinity Gay was herself a rising star on the track team at Lafayette High School, WKYT reports.

Good Samaritans help woman pinned in flipped car

October 16, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

CINCINNATI (FOX19) – Complete strangers came to a Westwood woman’s rescue by holding up her vehicle after it flipped.

The 74-year-old woman flipped her 2002 Toyota Echo upside down in the 2600 block of Montana Avenue Tuesday morning.

“The car just went flying and I thought it was going to hit the telephone poll — instead it hit a wall in the yard,” said Vickie Stewart.

Stewart, 52, and another woman leaped out of her car to try and come to the woman’s aid. She said she began to try and hold the vehicle so it wouldn’t completely flip over and further injure the woman.

“It was rocking on the curb,” Stewart said, describing how she was pushing up against the vehicle. “I’m holding onto the car and I’m looking around like somebody come help.”

Help would come as two other men jumped out of their vehicles to help Stewart and the woman. All three were pushing up and using all their strength to prevent the car from rolling, Steward said.

“He reached in and went to undue her seat belt, but when he did the car really started to come forward,” Stewart said.

Cincinnati Fire and Police came and were able to get the woman out of the vehicle.

Daughter takes to social media to find kidney donor for dad

October 16, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

BAY CITY, MI (WNEM) – More than 120,000 Americans are currently on a list hoping to get an organ they desperately need to live.

When a man’s life was on the line his daughter stepped up to save him. Her plea for a kidney donor took off on social media and incredibly they found a willing match.

Jeff Charters knew his kidneys were failing and he knew he needed a transplant, but he had no idea just how quickly it would happen.

After months of dialysis for four hours a day, three days a week, his family went with him as they learned about the agonizing process of getting a donor. It is often a three to five year wait.

His daughter Kim Charters wasn’t going to allow that.

“I was just sitting there and in the back of my mind I was thinking, ‘yeah, this wait list thing, that’s not happening.’ I can find something. I can do something,” she said.

So she turned to Facebook. On April 7 Kim started “Find Jeff Charters a Kidney.” The Bay City John Glenn graduate reached out to everyone she knew to get the word out.

“I probably had 20 or 30 people actually messaging me and asking me how to go about the process and how to get tested,” Kim Charters said.

Out of those people they just needed one. Little did they know the one had messaged Kim the day she started the social media campaign.

What happened next Jeff Charters can only describe as a miracle. His wish was granted in an airport.

“Me and my wife just hugged and we were crying,” he said.

Craigslist puppy ad lures family into money-wiring scam

October 15, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  1 Comment

MCDONOUGH, GA (CBS46) – There’s nothing like finding the perfect dog. It could be a mutt or a pure breed Bulldog. True dog lovers know what they want. But what will buyers be getting if they attempt to purchase a dog online?

A McDonough family decided they’d “Better Call Harry,” after attempting to purchase an English Bulldog located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The owner claimed that the puppy came with registered papers, all the best toys and a manual complete with the new puppies likes and dislikes. Despite all of the warning signs, the Morlu family wired $200.

They never got the dog.

Hours after wiring the money, the owner called back requesting more funds. It would cost an additional $900-1,300 to rent or purchase a crate.

The Morlu’s had been scammed.

Employees at the Atlanta Humane Society say it’s never a good idea to purchase a dog online.

Buyer beware.

Research the owner and always meet your new family member in person before you make the purchase.


Court docs: Woman arrested on terrorism charge was helping imprisoned husband

October 15, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

Investigators believe the Florence woman arrested on charges of terrorism and conspiracy to commit terrorism was helping her husband, a radicalized member of the Islamic faith who is serving a life prison for first-degree murder, with a plot to murder a warden.

FBI agents arrested Michelle Bastian, 49, Wednesday morning at her workplace, a bakery in Chandler called Urban Oven where she was a bookkeeper. They also served search warrants at her Florence home.

According to court paperwork released Thursday, this investigation goes back to May when “a known source” reported to the Arizona Department of Corrections that Thomas Bastian, Michelle’s husband, was a believer in Islam and had become radicalized.

In September, the same source told the FBI that Thomas “was planning to create an explosive device in order to kill people, to include the prison warden.”

Court paperwork indicates that the same source said Michelle was helping Thomas, who has been in prison since March 31, 2009.

“Further information from the known source revealed that Thomas had a plan in action to create an explosive device to either kill the warden or to plant it in a vending machine located within the visitor section of the prison,” the officer who arrested Michelle wrote in his probable cause statement.

Kansas City man spreads kindness to strangers in form of $100 bills

October 15, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A local business man who has done well for himself and his family often leaves large tips for servers in hopes of making a stranger’s day a little brighter.

He’s never documented his deliveries, but allowed 41 Action News Anchor Christa Dubill to document the exchange on one condition — conceal his identity.

The first stop was Corner Restaurant in Westport.

The good Samaritan came in and sat at a table where our cameras could see him.

His server, Courtney Cain, was kind, took his order and went about her work. When she came by to take the man’s order, he told her wasn’t actually eating but was leaving her something.

It was an envelope with the word “TIP” written in black sharpie. She was already moved by his gesture, and gave him a hug when he left.

CA Salvation Army Shed Ransacked, Hundreds Of Gifts Saved Up For Christmas Stolen

October 15, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

ROSEVILLE — The burglary of toys, coats and school backpacks from the Roseville Salvation Army could have could have affected 400 families and 1,000 children during the holidays.

But United Auburn Indian Community Tribal Council and Thunder Valley Casino announced Friday afternoon that it will replace all the stolen items.

The philanthropic church thought it was ahead of schedule in gathering donations of 250 new coats, a dozen red barrels of new toys and 180 backpacks with school supplies when thieves broke into a storage shed last week.

They ransacked the shed taking only new items.

“For them to think they needed to take something frustrates me because all they needed to do was to ask and we would have done whatever we could for them,” Thomas Gallahue, the Roseville Salvation Army Social Services Coordinator, told FOX40 Friday.

He pointed out that the Salvation Army has a rent and utility bill assistance program.

Their hope that the community might help them recover from the thefts in time for the annual holiday giveaway was justified.

The operators of Thunder Valley said in a statement that the Salvation Army does a great service to the community in helping those in need.

“We hope that our donation will help to make the holiday season a little bit brighter for the Salvation Army and those families most in need,” said Dawn Clayton, General Manager of Thunder Valley Casino Resort.

Dying woman gets her Christmas wish, in October

October 15, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

CONCORD, NC (WBTV) – Anyone passing through Chinaberry Lane in Concord might just roll their eyes. Yard after yard is decked out with nativities, lights, wreathes and all the trappings of Christmas… before it’s even Halloween.

Without perspective, you might think the people living on that lane are just overly eager to start a season way too soon. With perspective, you come to understand that Christmas in October, is for one woman who won’t be here in December.

“I have Stage 4 cancer and I love Christmas,” Michelle Fadel said.

Michelle tells of her cancer as a matter of fact. She does not cry when she explains her life is coming to an end soon. She doesn’t flinch when she talks of the breast cancer that spread to her brain. It’s untreatable now, which for many would signal a time for mourning. For Michelle, it’s a time to start living.

“I told my husband I have a good mind to just start decorating for Christmas so our grandkids don’t miss out on Christmas and he said ‘I’d love that’” Michelle said.

Word spread around the neighborhood like wildfire. In just days, neighbors set out lights, reindeer, nativity sets, wreathes and signs pointing to the North Pole. Even the guy who never puts out decorations, put a wreath on his mailbox.

“It may look a little strange this close to Halloween but we hope it makes her happy and we hope she knows we’re thinking about her,” Tim Hawkins said.

Swarm of bees closed down part of Arizona neighborhood Thursday

October 14, 2016 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

ORO VALLEY, AZ (Tucson News Now) –

Oro Valley Police and the Golder Ranch Fire District are warning people who live in an Oro Valley neighborhood to be alert for bees.

Thursday afternoon, police closed off Sand Canyon Place at Canada Hills while an expert evicted an estimated 80,000 Africanized bees hiding above the garage of a home.

Greg Denker works for American Bee Control and told Tucson News Now the hive was unusually large at seven feet long and 120 pounds.

He said this is the fourth time he has responded to this home in two years. His last visit was back in May.

“The bees keep coming and finding other places to live in this house,” he said.

Denker was scheduled to remove the unusually large hive at 8 a.m. but sometime during the process, the bees stung two people and two dogs in the neighborhood.

Golder Ranch Fire officials said they’re all expected to be okay, but still blocked off the street for hours as a precaution. It is now open.

Denker believes the danger may not be over yet. He said it is only a matter of time before neighbors discover more bees.
