SCHOOL SHOOTER PARENTS PRISON-DODGE GASLIGHT COURT

As James and Jennifer Crumbley awaited sentencing for their conviction for involuntary manslaughter, both sought to avoid jail. Their son Ethan Crumbley is serving life in prison for the school rampage where four were killed and seven others were injured. The gun used was given to the teen as a birthday present by his parents. James, convicted of involuntary manslaughter, asked the judge for "time served" and Jennifer asked the judge to let her serve her time on house arrest in a guest house at her attorney's home. Oakland County Prosecutor Marc Keast has recommended 10-to-15-year jail sentences for both Jennifer and her husband, James. While James was in jail,  damning phone conversations surfaced in which Crumbley had allegedly threatened Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald. In a call from October 9, 2023, five months before the trial, Crumbley says, “Yeah, Karen McDonald, you’re going down. … Go ahead, record this call. Send it to Karen McDonald. Tell her how James Crumbley is going to f------ take her down." In a call on December 23, 2023, Crumbley says, “There will be retribution, believe me."  The threats were bad enough that Crumbley's jail communication privileges were revoked during his trial.  Neither received the sentence they asked for.

Bryan Kohberger's attorney has provided his official alibi for the early morning hours of November 13, 2022. Kohberger claims he was driving his car. In a newly-filed court document, Kohberger claims after he moved to the Pullman area he liked to go out and explore, and according to him, that is what he was doing when the four students were murdered, But Kohberger claims his cell phone data will back him up and prove that he was south of Pullman and west of Moscow at the time of the murders  Kohberger's official alibi claims, "Mr. Kohberger was out driving in the early morning hours of November 13, 2022; as he often did to hike and run and/or see the moon and stars, He drove throughout the area south of Pullman, Washington, west of Moscow, Idaho including Wawawai Park." To further solidify his alibi, Kohberger said he plans to offer testimony from a CSLI expert to show that he was south of Pullman and west of Moscow at the time of the murders and that he did not travel east on the Moscow-Pullman Highway on the early morning of November 13, 2022.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Tara Malek – Bosie, ID, Attorney & Co-owner of Smith + Malek; Former State and Federal Prosecutor; X: @smith_malek Chris McDonough – Director at the Cold Case Foundation, Former Homicide Detective; Host of YouTube channel: “The Interview Room” William Slater – Cybersecurity Expert and Chief Information Security Officer at Slater Technologies.

DISMEMBERED GIRL SADE 'EXCITED' ABOUT DATE WITH SPOILED BRAT KILLER SUSPECT

Sade Robinson tells a maintenance worker at her apartment building that she’s excited about her first date with 33-year-old Maxwell Anderson. Robinson texts Anderson about where to eat and tells him she is "feeling seafood". Anderson takes Sade to a place he used to work, the Twisted Fisherman. After dinner, they spend some more time together having drinks at Duke’s on Water. The couple leaves Duke’s together around 9 PM.    Around 9 AM April 2nd, Sade Robinson’s friend and coworker reports her missing to Milwaukee Police. The friend says Robinson isn’t returning her texts or calls and didn’t show up to work that morning. The friend shows officers a Snapchat that Robinson posted the night before, showing Robinson was at a sports bar, Duke’s on Water, the night before. Officers note that earlier that morning, Robinson’s blue Honda Civic was found burning near 30th and Lisbon, 2 miles from her apartment.   5:30 PM April 2, Cudahy Police respond to a call along Lake Michigan.  At Warnimont Park, a popular recreation area, a park goer reports finding a severed human leg.  According to a post from the Cudahy Sheriff’s office, the limb was found "in or near the water," east of the golf course, near the pump house.     Three days after the Warnimont Park discovery, another call to police about a severed body part. 11 miles away from the shores of Lake Michigan, in a Milwaukee west side neighborhood, a body part is found at a playground.  Police received the call around 10 pm Friday night, but investigators are tight lipped on exactly where the body part is found, or what remains are recovered.   Within 24 hours, police respond to another call about the discovery of human remains.  On Saturday just a few blocks from the same west side Milkwaukee area as Friday’s discovery Police set up crime scene near a park.  Around 7:15 pm the medical examiner arrived to remove the body part. Police blocked off the area and canvassed well past midnight, according to neighbors.  The human remains are identified as belonging to Sade Robinson.   Joining Nancy Grace Today: Sheena Scarbrough - Sade’s mother Eric Faddis – Partner at Varner Faddis Elite Legal, Former Felony Prosecutor and Current Criminal Defense and Civil Litigation Attorney; Instagram: @e_fad @varnerfaddis; TikTok: @varnerfaddis Dr. John Delatorre –  Licensed Psychologist and Mediator (specializing in forensic psychology); Psychological Consultant to Project Absentis: a nonprofit organization that searches for missing persons; Twitter, IG, and TikTok – @drjohndelatorre Joe Scott Morgan – Professor of Forensics: Jacksonville State University, Author, “Blood Beneath My Feet,” and Host: “Body Bags with Joseph Scott Morgan;” Twitter/X: @JoScottForensic Alexis Tereszcuk - CrimeOnline.com Investigative Reporter, Writer/Fact Checker at Lead Stories; X: @swimmie2009  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

ALEC BALDWIN IN TRIAL CROSSHAIRS? COHORT CALLS JURY IDIOT A**HOLES

Actor Alec Baldwin has been indicted again, charged with involuntary manslaughter by New Mexico prosecutors in the death cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. The shooting on set during the production of the film, "Rust."  Baldwin was allegedly four feet from the crew on set in a mock church pew when he used his right hand to reach across his body to grab the gun holstered on his left side.  He was reportedly aiming the gun toward cinematographer Halyna Hutchins when he drew back the hammer and released it. The bullet first went through director Joel Souza’s shoulder before striking Hutchins in the chest, killing her. Ever since the shooting death of Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust, Alec Baldwin has claimed he didn't pull the trigger. Even after an FBI report contradicting Baldwin's account of the shooting saying the trigger had to have been pulled for the gun to fire, Baldwin still says he didn't pull the trigger. The FBI report says their testing proves the gun could not be made to fire without the pull of the trigger.   Accidental discharge testing determined that the firearm used in the shooting -- a .45 Colt single-action revolver -- could not have fired without the trigger being pulled. The FBI Report also says,  With the hammer in the quarter- and half-cock and fully cocked positions, the gun "could not be made to fire without a pull of the trigger. Alec Baldwin says he didn't pull the trigger  The armorer for the film Hannah Gutierrez-Reed was also charged and she has been convicted and sentenced on manslaughter charges. In recorded Jailhouse phone calls Gutierrez-Reed blasts the jurors calling them "idiots" and "A-Holes".   Prosecutors say the jailhouse recordings show how she really is outside of court. Gutierrez-Reed wants Alex Baldwin to go to jail too and says she won't testify at his upcoming trial if subpoenaed.  Joining Nancy Grace today:  Dale Carson – High-profile Attorney (Jacksonville), Former FBI Agent & Former Police Officer (Miami-Dade County); Author: “Arrest-Proof Yourself” Paul Szych – Former Police Commander (Albuquerque, NM), APD Domestic Violence and Stalking Unit; Author: “Stop Him From KillingThem;” X: @WorkplaceThreatt; Screen Actors Guild-Eligible Actor (experience using firearms with blanks during live-action movie scenes/Terminator: Salvation)  Dr. Michelle DuPre – Former Forensic Pathologist, Medical Examiner and Detective: Lexington County Sheriff’s Department, Author: “Homicide Investigation Field Guide” & “Investigating Child Abuse Field Guide;” Forensic Consultant Johonniuss Chemweno - Film and TV Safety Expert - CEO, VIP StarNetwork; X: @johonniuss_j Maureen Callahan – Columnist for the DailyMail.com; X: @DM_Maureen_ See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

3 SETS OF BODY PARTS, SEVERED LEG DISCOVERED: MILWAUKEE IN FEAR

5:30 p.m. April 2: Cudahy Police respond to reports of human remains found along Lake Michigan. At Warnimont Park, cops recover a severed human leg. Three days later, Milwaukee police find another unspecified human body part at a playground 11 miles away. A third set of unidentified human remains are recovered from a park just blocks from the previous discovery.    In the meantime, Sade Carleena Robinson, 19, is reported ‘critically missing’ by Milwaukee Police on April 1 when she fails to show up for a shift at Pizza Shuttle. Robinson’s mother, Sheena Scarbrough, says Robinson texted her that afternoon to ask for money, which Scarbrough says is very unusual for Robinson. The next morning, police respond to reports of a car fire near 30th Street and Lisbon, 2 miles from Robinson’s home. Fire investigators determined no one was inside the car, but family members identified the car as belonging to Sade.      Sade Robinson’s family joins the searches near the playground over the weekend. While police find unidentified human remains, Robinson’s family discovers a blanket belonging to Sade. The distinct pink blanket pictures Sade with her beloved dog, Coco Chanel, who passed away. As more human remains are discovered, the family is losing hope Sade will be found alive.   Authorities descend on a home 8 miles away in West Milwaukee. Investigators spend more than 24 hours searching the upper unit of the duplex, reportedly discovering blood in the stairwell and on a comforter. The homeowner is detained in connection with the remains found.  Milwaukee Sheriffs reveal Maxwell Anderson remains in custody as a person of interest connected to the remains found along Lake Michigan. Anderson has not yet been criminally charged but does have a rap sheet. Anderson has several convictions including disorderly conduct, domestic abuse, and DUI over the last 10 years. In two incidents, Anderson became violent with relatives, and in a third, beat a stranger who intervened in an argument between Anderson and a woman. Anderson is said to work as a bartender for several establishments in the Milwaukee area.    Joining Nancy Grace Today: Matthew Mangino – Attorney, Former District Attorney (Lawrence County); Author: “The Executioner’s Toll: The Crimes, Arrests, Trials, Appeals, Last Meals, Final Words and Executions of 46 Persons in the United States” Bill Daly – Former FBI Investigator and Forensic Photography, Security Expert  Dr. John Delatorre –  Licensed Psychologist and Mediator (specializing in forensic psychology); Psychological Consultant to Project Absentis: a nonprofit organization that searches for missing persons; Twitter, IG, and TikTok – @drjohndelatorre Dr. Eric Eason – Board-certified Forensic Pathologist, Consultant; Instagram: @eric_a_eason, Facebook: Eric August Eason, LinkedIn: Eric Eason, MD  Alexis Tereszcuk – CrimeOnline.com Investigative Reporter, Writer/Fact Checker for Lead Stories; X: @swimmie2009 See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

KOHBERGER TRIAL FIASCO IGNITES ANGER, POISONS LOCALS?

As the Kohberger defense team moves ahead with their trial preparations in hopes of moving the proceeding out of Latah County, they put together a research project. In that research project, they hired a polling company to survey area residents to ask questions about how much the residents may know about the murders. The company had reached around 400 residents before a concerned citizen recorded one of the survey phone calls and contacted the district attorney's office to complain. Prosecutors say the polling company was asking questions to plant negative opinions of Kohberger in potential jurors' minds in the hopes the calls would serve to prove that local people were prejudiced against Kohberger and that the trial should be moved to another county.

SEX, LIES, VIDEOTAPE: SECRET SEX RECORDINGS TO SINK DIDDY?

A sixth lawsuit naming Sean Combs, alleges his son, Christian ‘King’ Combs, attacked a stewardess while aboard Victorious, an 85-foot superyacht chartered by Sean Combs. Grace O’Marcaigh claims Christian Combs forced her to take shots from a spiked bottle he brought aboard. O’Marcaigh goes on to say Combs groped her, removed his clothes, and attempted to force her into oral sex. Another stewardess walked in on the attack, startling Combs and allowing O’Marcaigh to escape. O’Marcaigh claims Rodney Jones has audio recordings of Combs forcing himself on her. Sean Combs is named for aiding and abetting his son in the attack.    Rodney "Lil Rod" Jones' lawsuit alleges there is evidence of the sexual assaults and sex trafficking as hidden cameras record everything throughout Combs’ homes, which is why homes in LA and Miami were raided. Combs’ former bodyguard, Gene Deal, commented that if there are cameras in Combs’ homes, there may be compromising video of “politicians and princes.” The claims are reminiscent of cameras Jeffrey Epstein allegedly used as an “insurance policy” against powerful friends like Prince Andrew.

'Drunk' TV Star CRASHES, Curses EMTs Over $$ Blouse, Now Blames Crash Victim

"General Hospital” star Haley Pullos, charged after a wrong-way crash, is now saying she was not responsible for the damages caused to one of the other drivers.  Pullos is charged with driving under the influence after her car flew over the dividing barrier, and into oncoming traffic. She careened off one car and collided head-on with another car that was going about 60 mph. Police reportedly recovered marijuana edibles and alcohol from the actress’ car. Firefighters had to use "the jaws of life" to free Pullos from her car. That's when the "General Hospital" actress lashed out at the responders shouting, “This is a $400 f**king shirt!” Now the actress is claiming she was not responsible for the damages that crash victim Courtney Wilder allegedly received. Documents filed by Pullos’ legal team say Pullos denied all the allegations levied against her in the lawsuit and went on to say the damages were caused by negligence or content of Wilder.      Joining Nancy Grace Today:  Jarrett Ferentino- Homicide Prosecutor, Facebook & Instagram: Jarrett Ferentino Dr. Shari Schwartz- Forensic Psychologist (specializing in Capital Mitigation and Victim Advocacy); Twitter: @TrialDoc; Author: "Criminal Behavior" and "Where Law and Psychology Intersect: Issues in Legal Psychology" Robert Crispin - Private Investigator: “Crispin Special Investigations;" Former Federal Task Force Officer for United States Department of Justice, DEA and Miami Field Division; Former Homicide and Crimes Against Children Investigator; Facebook: Crispin Special Investigations, Inc.

BOY BLUDGEONED DEAD BY BRAGGING MILLIONAIRE TEEN AND FRIENDS?

As a Halloween party in an upscale neighborhood gets out of hand, neighbors call 911 saying there are too many cars and drunk teens in the neighborhood. As Preston Lord and his friends leave the party, one of Lord's friends has a necklace stolen by another group of teens. A fight breaks out when Lord tries to get the necklace back. He is beaten by a group of teens who knock Lord unconscious and kick him while he’s on the ground. Witnesses recount seeing the attackers “hump” Lord and someone in a white suit returning to stomp on Preston Lord, still unconscious in the middle of the street. As Preston Lord lays unconscious on the pavement, friends determine his heart has stopped and other partygoers perform CPR until police arrive and take over. Lord is taken by ambulance to Chandler Regional Hospital, then transferred to Phoenix Children's in extremely critical condition with a severe brain injury. Preston Lord succumbs to his injuries. For those involved, Lord’s death is fodder for social media, some trying to figure out how to cash in on the reward money offered for information about what happened. The suspects discuss the fight over Snapchat with one of the messages reading, "My mom wants in on the $10K.” These messages are some of the first real clues police begin to follow.  A tipster notifies police that Talan Renner admitted to a friend that he threw the first punch, and Owen Hines told a friend “he only kicked him in the stomach.” Nearly all the witnesses point out Treston Billey and Dominic Turner as aggressors due to their distinct costumes that night. Turner wore all black, while Billey donned a white suit. Using the suspects' digital media, investigators find Taylor Sherman, who admits to taking a video of Preston as he is unconscious on the ground and sending it out on Snapchat. Talyn Vigil also sent a message reading, “I hit a kid and this kid fell, hit his head. Then they kicked his head in the ground, then I got word he died so idk.” The day Preston Lord passes away, Talan Renner’s millionaire father, Travis Renner, goes to work trying to cover up the teen’s involvement. Renner and his business partner allegedly hand out NDAs and push a story that despite Talan Renner having thrown the first punch, Talyn Vigil was truly to blame for Lord’s death. Renner tells the school his son is being bullied, and whisks Talan away to his $800,000 golf club cabin in Show Low, Arizona for a week while Talan’s hands heal from the fight. Meanwhile Talan Renner brags to friends on Snapchat, “I got in a fight, a big group fight, and I accidentally killed a kid. I guess I’m just too strong.” Joining Nancy Grace Today: Jeanna "Gina"  Pignatiello  - Neighbor who called 911; Instagram @JPignatiello  Ray Giudice – Criminal Defense Attorney in Atlanta, GA; X: @raygiudice Dr. Shari Schwartz – Forensic Psychologist (Specializing in Capital Mitigation and Victim Advocacy); Author: “Criminal Behavior” and “Where Law and Psychology Intersect: Issues in Legal Psychology;” X: @TrialDoc"  Julie Lewis – President & CEO, Digital Mountain, Inc.   Dr. Jan Gorniak – Medical Examiner, Clark County Office of the Coroner/Medical Examiner (Las Vegas, NV), Board Certified Forensic Pathologist Alexis Tereszcuk - CrimeOnline.com Investigative Reporter, Writer/Fact Checker at Lead Stories; X: @swimmie2009   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

DIDDY DONE? GRAND JURY LOOMS

Sean Combs' sex trafficking investigation is drawing comparisons to that of Jeffrey Epstein.  Rodney "Lil Rod" Jones' accuses Combs of sexually assaulting him and other victims on multiple occasions. Combs is accused of luring victims onto a yacht he rents for trips to the Virgin Islands and sexually assaulting guests on the yacht. The Rodney "Lil Rod" Jones lawsuit alleges Sean Combs has an aide who plays a role similar to what  Ghislaine Maxwell did for Epstein in helping procure potential victims.  The Jones lawsuit further alleges there is evidence of the sexual assaults and sex trafficking as hidden cameras record everything throughout Combs' homes, which is why homes in LA and Miami were raided. While Sean Combs' estates were being raided, sons, King Combs and Justin Combs were detained during the raids. And now King Combs is speaking out about his detainment and the sex assault scandal engulfing his father on Instagram saying, "stop with the Cap" which is slang for "quit lying." The post is apparently in response to allegations about his father, but the somewhat cryptic message might also be directed at Sean Combs accusers.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Neama Rahmani  - Fmr. federal prosecutor turned trial attorney, president of West Coast Trial Lawyers Dr. John Delatorre - Licensed psychologist and mediator, specializing in forensic psychology, psychological consultant to Project Absentis: a nonprofit organization that searches for missing persons, resolutionfcs.com, Twitter, IG, and TikTok - @drjohndelatorre  Robert Crispin - Private Investigator, Former Federal Task Force Officer for United States Department of Justice, DEA and Miami Field Division, Former Homicide and Crimes Against Children Investigator, “Crispin Special Investigations” CrispinInvestigations.com, Facebook: Crispin Special Investigations, Inc.  Shannon Henry – President & Founder of SASS Go (Surviving Assault Standing Strong: a nonprofit on a mission to eradicate abuse, trafficking and violence against women and girls globally) Case Consultant, and Adjunct Professor at the University of South Carolina in the Department of Education; @sassgoglobal on FB, Instagram, X, and TikTok Kayla Brantley – Reporter, DailyMail.com; X: @_KaylaBrantley, Instagram: @KaylaBrantley See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Riley Strain, No Pants, No Wallet, No Water in Lungs: NO ACCIDENT?

Even though the body of Riley Strain has been found, authorities are no closer to releasing his cause of death. His body was found submerged in the Cumberland River, eight miles downriver from where he was last seen.  Strain still had on the white and black shirt he was last seen wearing, but his boots, pants, and wallet were missing.  The initial autopsy report says no signs of foul play, but the family ordered a second, private autopsy, saying the absence of water in his lungs raises questions about whether or not Riley drowned.  The family is also concerned that Strain was found nearly nude, wearing only his watch and a shirt. Pictures analyzed from the night he vanished show Strain had his wallet in the front pocket of his pants, and he was wearing Justins, which are square nose-style Cowboy boots. His body was found without the boots, pants, or wallet.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Chris Dingman - Close family friend and spokesperson for Riley Strain’s family, GoFundme: @RileyStrain https://www.gofundme.com/f/riley-strain  Ben Powers - Attorney with Legal Powers PLLC, IG: legal powers/Facebook: Legal Powers PLLC Caryn L.

Influencer Andrew Tate BUSTED

Kickboxer and media influencer Andrew Tate charged with rape, human trafficking and more. Tate and his brother were taken into custody in Romania, where they live. Prosecutors say the Tates and two associates formed an organized criminal group to groom and sexually traffick women in the United States, the United Kingdom, as well as Romania. The indictment names seven women who say the Tate brothers recruited them with false promises, including love and marriage, but instead took them to buildings where they intimidated them, watched over them constantly, forcing them into debt and pornography.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Greg Ahlgren – International Attorney-at-Law at the US-MX Law Group, Ltd. & DRT Alliance/Diaz Reus International Law Firm Dr. Joni Johnston – Forensic Psychologist and Private Investigator (performs risk and threat assessments on violent offenders); Author: “Serial Killers: 101 Questions True Crime Fans Ask” Sheryl McCollum – Cold Case Investigative Research Institute Founder & Host of New Podcast: “Zone 7;” Twitter: @149Zone7 Lee Reiber – Mobile Device Forensic Expert, COO: Oxygen Forensics, Inc., Author: “Mobile Forensic Investigations: A Guide to Evidence Collection, Analysis, and Presentation” Dawn Schiller (Los Angeles, CA)- Training Director for the L.A.

Did Hollywood Brat, 35, DISMEMBER WIFE ALIVE?

On Tuesday, November 7, Sam Haskell IV hires a couple of day laborers to take three bags of rocks to the dump. The bags don't feel like rocks, they feel like meat. A block away from Haskell's home, the men open a bag. Seeing a belly button, the men returned the bags and the money to Haskell who claims they saw Halloween props. The workers go to the police to tell their story, but end up having to call 911 from the parking lot of the police station. By the time cops get to Haskell's place to investigate, Haskell is gone and so are the supposed bags of body parts. An investigation starts. The next morning at 6:15 a.m., a 911 call comes in from a homeless man who was dumpster diving when he found a headless body. The headless torso of a female identified after an autopsy, confirmed to be the wife of Sam Haskell IV.  According to the autopsy report, it was a "dismembered torso with a single sharp force injury at the base of the anterior neck." No fatal injuries were found on the torso. The report further states Haskell's "head, majority of the neck, and majority of all four extremities" were absent and the "amputation sites" were "remarkably smooth," which suggests a sharp power tool was likely used. One of the most shocking facts found in the autopsy report is that Mei Haskell may have been alive when her head was severed from her torso.  According to the autopsy report, "there was no definite indication that dismemberment occured antemortem." However, "the possibility that the head and neck removal was initiated prior to death cannot be entirely excluded."

SQUATTER-NIGHTMARE-TURNS-MURDER: Woman Bludgeoned DEAD, Stuffed in Duffle

Nadia Vitel spends a couple of days moving personal items into an apartment in Manhattan's Kips Bay, and she is captured on security cameras going in and out several times on March 10. Vitel spends two days on Long Island then on March 12 she heads back to the Kips Bay Apartment.  Vitel's son, Michael Medvedev, talks with her on Tuesday the 12th, but after the 12th, she isn't answering calls or returning texts.   After two days of no contact, Medvedev calls police to do a welfare check on his 52-year-old mother. Waiting for the police, Medvedev convinces the building super to let him into the apartment. Walking through the apartment, nothing seems amiss, except his mother is not there. As they are walking out, Medvedev notices a duffel bag in a closet, which seems a bit out of place.   The investigation into the death of Nadia Vitel starts with her injuries and the surveillance cameras in the building. Vitel suffered blunt force trauma to the head, multiple facial fractures, a brain bleed, and two broken ribs. Her body is found on Thursday, March 14. Investigators look back and find surveillance video showing Vital as she brings her personal items into the building on the 10th. Vital leaves the building just after 11 am on March 10th, and 19-year-old Halley Tejada and 18-year-old Kensly Alston, are seen trying to enter the building around 2 pm the 10th.  1 hour later Tejada and Alston are on camera in the building and seen on elevator surveillance camera entering Nadia Vitel's apartment. NYPD police chief Joseph Kenny says Halley Tejada and Kensly Alston were squatting in Nadia Vitel's apartment. When Vitel returned to the apartment on March 12, she confronted the squatters who proceeded to allegedly beat her to death, and cram her body into a duffel bag. Tejada and Alston allegedly through Vitel's personal effects and more in the trash, then left the building in her Lexus SUV.  Using Vitel's bank cards, Tejada and Alston charge their way to Pennsylvania where they are involved in a traffic accident on March 13. Alston gives police a fake name, slowing the process of clearing the accident. Once Vitel's body is found on the 14th, her Lexus is reported stolen, and the US Marshals are able to track Tejada and Alston to Lower Paxton Township Pennsylvania where they are placed in custody.

DIDDY DONE? FEDS Raid Sean Combs on SEX TRAFFICKING PC

Crime Stories with Nancy Grace: DIDDY DONE? FEDS Raid Sean Combs on SEX TRAFFICKING PCby Crime Online StaffMarch 27, 2024 Share Tweet   Sean Combs, AKA “Puff Daddy”, “P. Diddy” and “Brother Love”, is credited with the development of several big-name hip-hop artists including Notorious B.I.G., Mary J. Blige, and Usher. But Diddy’s own music career is just as impressive, with 11 number-one singles, 14 nominations, and three Grammy awards. In addition to Combs’ label, Bad Boy Records, the rap mogul co-founded the network Revolt TV and hosts several businesses under the umbrella company Combs Global. At Forbes’ last estimate, Combs had a net worth of roughly $1 billion. On Monday, large teams of law enforcement led by Homeland Security Investigators raided 3 homes belonging to Sean “Diddy” Combs in Los Angeles and Miami as part of a sex trafficking investigation stemming from accusations leveled against Combs in 5 separate lawsuits brought against him. The latest suit filed in February by music producer Rodney ‘Lil-Rod’ Jones details frequent drug use, a shooting, and several accounts of sexual assault while working with Combs on “The Love Album.” In the 73-page document, Jones claims that Combs forced him to solicit sex workers and perform sex acts with them as Combs’ looked on. Jones also alleges the rapper threw parties he called ‘Freak Offs’, during which underage girls and sex workers were given laced drinks and assaulted. Combs’ son Justin, producer Stevie J, and associate Brendon Paul, allegedly supplied the women and drugs for the parties. The suit goes on to say that Combs’ access to major celebrities, athletes, and even British Royals, such as Prince Harry, gave him and his followers “legitimacy.” Two of Combs’ sons, Justin and King Combs, are seen outside in handcuffs while investigators carry evidence out of Combs’ $35 million Los Angeles mansion. The two men were later released and seen gathering belongings before leaving the residence. Combs was in the Miami area during the raid and was stopped at Opa Locka airport with family members and friends. Feds seized Combs’ phone while a member of his party was arrested on unrelated drug charges. The rapper’s current whereabouts are unknown.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Neama Rahmani– Former Federal Prosecutor, Legal Commentator, and President of West Coast Trial Lawyers; Author: “Harvard to Hashtag;” INSTAGRAM: @Neamarahmani, X: @NeamaRahmani  Dr. John Delatorre –  Licensed Psychologist and Mediator (specializing in forensic psychology); Psychological Consultant to Project Absentis: a nonprofit organization that searches for missing persons; X, IG, and TikTok – @drjohndelatorre Shannon Henry  -  President & Founder of SASS Go (Surviving Assault Standing Strong: a nonprofit on a mission to eradicate abuse, trafficking and violence against women and girls globally) Case Consultant, and Adjunct Professor at the University of South Carolina in the Department of Education; @sassgoglobal on FB, Instagram, X, and TikTok Barry Golden– Former Senior Inspector for the U.S. Marshals Service, Owner of Golden Consulting and Investigations Kayla Brantley – Reporter, DailyMail.com; X: @_KaylaBrantley, Instagram: @KaylaBrantley See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

'Rust' Armorer Convicted, Alec Baldwin Next?

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the armorer in charge of the guns in the film "Rust," has been found guilty of manslaughter in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Hutchins was killed when star Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun during rehearsal loaded with live ammo instead of a blank round. Reports say first assistant director David Halls picked up one of the three prop guns that had been set up by armorer Hannah Gutierrez and yelled, “Cold gun.” "Cold gun" is industry slang meaning the gun did not contain live rounds. Halls gave the gun to Baldwin who was using the gun to rehearse a scene. The search warrant said Baldwin was aiming the weapon at the camera when he fired, striking Hutchins and Souza. Reports have surfaced that the weapon was used for target practice by crew members that morning. Gutierrez Reed faces up to 18 months in prison at sentencing in April.  Baldwin has also been charged. His trial starts in July.  Joining Nancy Grace today: Paul Szych – Former Police Commander (Albuquerque, NM), APD Domestic Violence and Stalking Unit; Author: “Stop Him From KillingThem;” X: @WorkplaceThreatt; Screen Actors Guild-Eligible Actor (experience using firearms with blanks during live-action movie scenes/Terminator: Salvation) Domenic Romano - NY Corporate Lawyer and Entertainment Attorney, Romano Law  Dr. Shari Schwartz– Forensic Psychologist (specializing in Capital Mitigation and Victim Advocacy); Twitter: @TrialDoc; Author: “Criminal Behavior” and “Where Law and Psychology Intersect: Issues in Legal Psychology” Karen L.

IDAHO SLAY SUSPECT BRYAN KOHBERGER 'ALIBI' WITNESS???

Brian Kohberger is facing an important hearing date in April, the reveal of new information on his alibi. Prosecutors asked last month for more information from Kohberger's legal team on a possible alibi.  Judge John Judge, set an April 17th deadline for Kohberger's legal team to provide documents relating to an alibi. Last year, at least two possible alibis were set out by Kohberger's attorney. The first saying... it was Kohberger’s habit to go for long drives, alone, late at night.  Defense attorney Anne Taylor later gave the court brief information saying, "Evidence corroborating Mr. Kohberger being at a location other than the King Road address will be disclosed pursuant to discovery and evidentiary rules as well as statutory requirements."  That location has not been revealed.  Could there now be an actual witness?

Schoolgirl Beaten into COMA by RAGING 'MEAN GIRL,' 15

Minutes after the school day ends, students from Hazelwood East High School in St. Louis County Missouri, gather to watch the end of a fight between two teen girls.  Kaylee Gain and her alleged attacker Maurnice DeClue square off and DeClue quickly gets the upper hand, pulling Gain to the ground. DeClue pummels Gain in the head and upper body. As Gain is on her back on the pavement, a bystander tries to intervene by trying to get the unnamed girl off Kaylee Gain.   The bystander is quickly rushed by two other girls who push her back from the fight and begin a separate fight of their own while Gain is being pounded by a closed fist to the head and upper body, DeClue proceeds to pull Kaylee Gain's head about two feet above the concrete, then slams Gain's head into the cement. The first hit renders Kaylee Gain unable to defend herself as her assailant quickly pulls her back up off the concrete and lifting her head further than the first time, smashes the head of Kaylee Gain back into the cement again. The sound of the back of her head hitting concrete is such a sickening thud, and observers realize something terrible has happened. The attacker, as well as those who have observed the beating, move on to other fights taking place while Kaylee Gain is left alone, unconscious on the pavement. As EMTs arrive, Kaylee Gain is convulsing. St. Louis Police stated a 15-year-old suspect has been arrested and is being held in St. Louis County Family Court on assault charges.  The determination is still to be made whether DeClue will be charged as an adult. Maurnice DeClue's family says she is the victim and has been repeatedly bullied. They say she was lured to the fight location.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Chris Slusher - Columbia, Missouri, Attorney Caryn L.

Body Bags with Joseph Scott Morgan: Jealousy, Murder, Death Sentence - The Conviction of Christa Pike

Christa Pike was 18-years-old when she thought her 19-year-old job corps classmate, Colleen Slemmer, was trying to steal her boyfriend, Tadaryl Shipp. Pike spent over 30-minutes beating Colleen Slemmer with her hands and feet, as well as a box cutter and a meat cleaver. Slemmer tried to escape. Shipp,17, caught her so Pike could continue the beating. Pike carved a pentagram into Slemmer's chest, used the box cutter to slice her throat. When she didn't die, Pike picked up a chunk of asphalt and slammed it onto Slemmer's head. The next day Pike brought a piece of Slemmer's skull to breakfast and told classmates what she had done. Convicted of murder and sentenced to death, Christa Pike now wants a judge to vacate her death sentence.

Fake Heiress Anna Sorokin: House Arrest 'MORE RESTRICTIVE' Than Prison

Fake German heiress Anna Sorokin conned her way into Manhattan society. Posing as Anna Delvey, a German heiress, she swindled banks, hotels, and friends out of more than $200,000. She forged checks to get money from banks and charmed people into paying for extravagant meals, and travel. Sorokin was convicted on a handful of grand larceny and theft of services charges. After serving her time, the 31-year-old was released from prison, now, fighting being deported, but again Sorokin falls on her feet. First, she landed a deal with Netflix for the rights to her life story, then began selling her artwork, and now, Sorokin says her home confinement and social media ban is “more restrictive” than jail. Sorokin is asking a federal judge to change the conditions of her house arrest.

12-Year-Old Girls Stab 'Bestie,' Leave Her for Dead, Now Say They're No Longer Threat to Society?

Two girls stab their best friend 19 times. Why? They wanted to appease the fictional horror character, Slender Man. Both girls serve time in a mental health facility. Anissa Weier was granted conditional release in September 2021. She was required to receive outpatient psychiatric treatment and was subject to GPS monitoring – though the monitoring was waived in September of last year. Now a Wisconsin judge will hear evidence in April to decide whether to release Morgan Geyser from the mental health facility where she’s being held. The 21-year-old Geyser requested conditional release from the Winnebago Mental Health Institute from Waukesha County Circuit Judge Michael Bohren back in January. This is similar to a petition that Geyser filed in 2022 for conditional release, but withdrew two months later. In the latest petition filed on January 16, Geyser is asking Judge Michael O. Bohren to consider whether she is no longer a threat to herself or others — a decision that will be based on a new round of medical exams. The judge appointed three psychiatric experts — one on behalf of Geyser, one on behalf of prosecutors, and the third as a court appointee — to examine her and produce reports on her current mental condition. Judge Bohren then set a hearing for April 10-11 to consider the reports and possibly rule on the release request.

Evil Stepmom Claims Boy, 5, Never Got Off School Bus

Friday, March 3rd: Pamela Turner waits for her stepson to get off the school bus. When Justin Turner doesn't, the stepmom calls the school.  The staff tells her that Justin was marked absent that day. The sheriff's office is called and deputies come to the Turner home. Justin Turner, 5, has been missing for hours. The search for Justin Turner includes multiple agencies and volunteers from the area. For two days, WCBD News video cameras follow the searches. Video shows volunteers side-by-side with police and sheriff's deputies, walking nearly shoulder to shoulder through fields, checking under back decks and sheds. The Channel 2 cameraman is filming as Victor Turner goes into a camper on their property, and quickly comes back out saying, "My son's in there." The body of Justin Turner is found hidden inside a cabinet in the pickup truck camper, parked close to the family home. An autopsy and forensic analysis are done on the 5-year-old, and investigators determine that the boy had been placed inside the camper shortly after his strangulation death. A forensic pathologist report indicates the boy died a short time after eating his last meal.  The Berkeley County Sheriff at the time, M.C. Cannon says accidental death is ruled out. The coroner's autopsy report reveals the boy was sexually assaulted with some kind of cylindrical object, and strangled to death. The case is officially ruled a homicide.

UNSOLVED: BEAUTIFUL JULIE NISWENDER FOUND DEAD IN TUB

Julia Niswender's roommates are gone for the weekend, but then one stops by the apartment on Monday to pick up some things for class.  She heads out without seeing or talking to Julia. The next day the roommate realizes she hasn't seen or talked to Julia in two days. The bedroom door is locked so she calls security at the apartment complex to check on her roommate. The guard shows up with police, and using a master key to open the door, walks into Julia Niswender's room. It appears as if a home invasion has taken place. Calling out for Julia and getting no reply, the officer walks toward the bathroom door, finding a pair of white latex gloves on the floor in front of the bathroom door. They are twisted and intertwined with each other.   Opening the bathroom door, officers discover Julia's lifeless, nude body, face down submerged in the bathtub filled with water. Her hands are pulled behind her back, her feet are together, and her cell phone is found underneath her body. Niswender's clothes have been cut off, except for a sleeve, and are left on the bathroom floor. Niswender's room looks like it has been tossed. Clothes are all over the floor of the room, drawers are left open, contents from a plastic organizer drawer have been dumped on the floor, and the contents of Niswender's purse is dumped out onto her bed.  A black-and-white zebra-striped pillowcase is missing from a pillow, her keys to the apartment are missing from a lanyard, and police note that it looks like a home invasion took place, but wrapped Christmas presents, an iPod, computer, and tv are not taken from the room. The night her body is found, officers note how her mother is pacing back and forth at the police station, while her stepfather seems stoic as he sits in the lobby. The first of several red flags that led investigators to take a closer look at Jim Turnquist. Looking at Turnquist, the police ask for his laptop, and he complies, they ask for a polygraph, and he complies twice, and passes twice. Investigators consult with the FBI and are encouraged to take a good look at Turnquist. Turnquist is named a Person of Interest, and he is charged, and not in the death of Julia Niswender, but in child pornography. There are 300,000 pictures on his laptop, 7 of which lead to charges of child porn. At trial, experts testified the 7 photos are in temp folders and could have been pop-up ads, and you can't even tell the age of the people in the pictures. Turnquist is acquitted of the child porn charges. The murder case of Julia Niswender turns cold.

BUSTED: Man Makes 'ACCIDENTAL CONFESSION' TO MURDER

April 23, 1993: the owner of  Ajax Liquor store, Steve Weltig, is found dead on the floor on the floor of his shop. Investigators say it appears a struggle took place just before Weltig is shot in the head. Detectives work the case and develop a suspect sketch, but no real evidence leading to a killer is found and the case goes cold. The case is assigned to different investigators over the years. New leads are investigated, and evidence is collected. In 2015, reliable tips led detectives to Loril Harp. Harp's former wife contacted police and told them Loril Harp shot Weltig. She tells detectives she did not drive her former husband to the liquor store on the day of the murder. She was at home and when Harp came home that morning he immediately took a shower. She tells police her ex-husband tells her he just shot a man in an Arnold liquor store. A friend and former co-worker of Weltig's also tells Arnold police that Harp told him that he shot Weltig. Harp is brought in for an interview but investigators fail to gather enough evidence to seek charges for the murder. Twenty-seven years after the murder of Steve Weltig, another set of detectives take over the case. Looking back over the case file, they watch the 2015 interview with Loril Harp. In that interview, detectives leave the room for a few minutes. During the break, Loril Harp makes a call on his cell phone and what he says lights a fire under the investigation. Loril Harp tells the person on the phone that he is not under arrest,  but "I probably will be before I leave here." The detectives recognize this as a near admission that Loril Harp is expecting something after all these years. Harp is brought back in for a new interview. Investigators Cpl. Brett Acklermann and Detective Corporal Josh Wineinger spend hours talking to Loril Harp.  At 68 years old, Harp is in bad health and needs 24-hour nursing care. During his interview with the detectives, Loril Harp says he did not shoot Steve Weltig multiple times. Harp admits that he and Weltig got into a fight, and Harp says he hit Weltig a few times and left. Harp claims he went home and took a shower, right away. And the detectives begin talking about cleaning up the blood when Harp is asked if he had a little blood on him, Harp replies "I must have if I shot him." This phrase is all detectives need.

High School Teacher Leads Class to CRACK SERIAL MURDER CASE

In 2018, Elizabethton High School student teacher Alex Campbell challenged his students to see if they could figure out if the Redhead murders are sometimes called the Bible Belt Murders. There were 14 unsolved murders with a similar M.O.  Campbell gets help from a former FBI agent teaching the young people about profiling a case. The students of Elizabethton High School start to see a potential pattern emerge in six of the potential murders. In looking at the background of the murders, they started New Year's Day 1985, the body of a young female with reddish hair was found strangled, wrapped in a blanket, and tossed down an embankment off the southbound side of I-75 near Jellico, Tennessee.  Due to decomposition, authorities believe she was killed about 72 hours before her body was found,  10-12 weeks pregnant when she was murdered.   The identification of Tina McKenney Farmer of Indiana helped the investigation move forward quickly. The evidence from the crime scene was tested and a match was found. The DNA matched Jerry Johns, convicted in the 1987 attempted murder of a woman he kidnapped, strangled, and then dumped along I-40. Linda Schacke met Jerry Johns in a club in West Knoxville, Tennesee. The 36-year-old trucker seems like a nice guy until he pulls a gun, and forces her at gunpoint to drive to a wooded area off the interstate where he rips her shirt and uses part of it to strangle her. Johns then tosses the strangled and bound woman on the inside of a storm drain under I-40. Like Tina Famer and many others, Linda Schacke has red hair, Unlike the others, Linda Schacke survives the attack. When Jerry Johns was convicted of the attack on Schacke, he was considered a suspect in some homicides, but there was never enough evidence. However, even though Tina Marie McKenney Farmer was positively identified by fingerprint identification, there was DNA left behind in the blanket she was wrapped up in after she was killed.  2019, DNA evidence identified convicted kidnapper Jerry Leon Johns as the man who killed Tina Marie McKenney Farmer in December 1984. Johns died in prison in 2015. On December 18, 2019, a grand jury in Campbell County, Tennessee, ruled that Johns would have been indicted for murder in Farmer's death if he were still alive. The students of Elizabethton High School continue to investigate and believe they have developed some strong evidence that shows whoever killed McKenney-Farmer, probably killed Lisa Nichols, Michelle Inman, Elizabeth Lamotte, Tracy Walker, and even a still unidentified Jane Doe in Desoto County.

PARASAIL NIGHTMARE, Mom DEAD, Husband: 'Fun is not worth a life'

An Illinois mom is killed and two children are seriously injured while parasailing. A storm blew in, affecting the stability of the boat towing the family. Now, the husband of a 33-year-old woman has filed lawsuits naming multiple parties.  A preliminary incident report from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission says boat captain Daniel Couch,49, cut the towing cable when the parasail “pegged” in a high gust of wind, threatening to drag his boat. This resulted in the parasail and the individuals being drug “through and across the surface of the water” and slammed into an abandoned Florida Keys bridge. Supraja Alaparthi, 33, was dead before another boat captain untangled her and the children from the parasail cables and rushed them to a Marathon restaurant where crews had set up a staging area.

Boy, 12, Dead After Just 24 Hours at Wilderness Boot Camp, Found Without Pants

The parents of a 12-year-old boy think Trails Carolina might be just the place to help their son. Trails Carolina claims to be a Leader in Wilderness Therapy offering an Adventure Wilderness Program for children who have behavioral and or emotional difficulties. The parents say their boy is transported by two men from New York to Trails Carolina Camp at Lake Toxaway, North Carolina. Their son arrives at the camp in an agitated state. The 12-year-old is loud and disruptive, but he is assigned to a cabin with other children as well as four adults.  In less than 24 hours, the 12-year-old boy from New York is dead. Sheriff Chuck Owenby says an autopsy is being conducted because the death "appeared suspicious" since the boy died at the camp less than 24 hours after he arrived. A counselor explained to investigators that the boy was required to sleep on the floor inside a sleeping bag. The sleeping bag is inside a small tent called a "BIVY." According to search warrant documents, around midnight the boy started to experience a panic attack. After the panic attack, a counselor told investigators that the boy was checked on throughout the night starting at 12 a.m., with additional checks on his well-being at 3 a.m. and 6 a.m.  At 7:45 a.m., the boy was found dead.  According to the search warrant, when investigators arrived at the scene, CJH was stiff and "cold to the touch." He was lying on his back, his arms were on his chest, and his "knees bent upwards toward the sky." Also in the search warrant, investigators noted spots of bleeding under the skin, "possible petechiae" in the boy's lips and eyes. This is considered a sign of asphyxiation. The warrant also notes a CPR mask was covering the boy's face and he was not wearing any pants or underwear. His pants and underwear were lying next to his shoulder Early in the investigation, detectives with the Transylvania County Sheriff's Office attempted to interview other juveniles at Trails Carolina when the boy died. However, camp staff members refused to allow investigators to interview or even see any of the other juveniles. Trails Carolina says the search warrant contains "misleading statements" saying they won't discuss some details "out of respect for the family and the investigation."  In a statement, Trails Carolina says they did not prevent children from speaking to investigators claiming they asked parents for permission for any children involved to speak with law enforcement and state agencies, and "complied with each parent's preference. as we are required to do." Children were moved to the area to protect them from seeing what was happening, not to avoid investigators. In response to the recent suspicious death of a 12-year-old at Trails Carolina, North Carolina health officials ordered the removal of all children from the nature therapy program.

Lawyer Brings Pregnant Wife Breakfast in Bed LACED WITH POISON

Catherine and Mason meet through mutual friends. The couple decide to marry, move into a quiet neighborhood in Houston, and have two children. As the now Herring family grows, Mason Herring establishes a successful law firm while Catherine Herring steps down as an executive with a non-profit to spend full-time raising the children. Catherine Herring is pregnant with her third child and catches her husband lying about his whereabouts and texting a former female colleague. After a confrontation, Herring tells his wife he wants to separate so he can work on himself, and move out. The couple goes to marriage counseling and their therapist suggests they spend Spring Break together. Mason Herring tells his wife he wants a divorce but would look like a jerk divorcing her while she is pregnant. Catherine Herring still has hope for the marriage and believes they can work it out. During their Spring Break together, Mason Herring brings his wife breakfast in bed. Mason Herring seems to be getting excited about their third child and encourages his wife to drink more fluids as it is better for the baby. To that end, along with breakfast in bed, Mason Herring brings Catherine a glass of water with the food, insisting she drink it all while he watches. The water is cloudy but the dutiful husband promises it is just old pipes or slightly dirty glass.  Catherine Herring drinks all the water. About 30 minutes after Mason Herring leaves for work, Catherine becomes sick, with painful stomach cramps, and diarrhea, and after her third trip to the bathroom realizes she is bleeding heavily. Herring goes to the emergency room where even after she is treated and sent home, she is still bleeding. After getting home from the hospital, Mason Herring continues to bring drinks to his wife, including a bottle of orange juice. The seal on the bottle is broken and a powder is seen in the bottom of the bottle. Catherine Herring doesn't drink what her husband gives her, but she saves it and takes the evidence to a private investigator. Surveillance cameras inside their home catch Herring putting a powdered substance from a bag in his pocket into a drink that he gives his wife. Catherine Herring retrieves the trash and finds a blister pack of Cyrux, a generic version of misoprostol, the drug most commonly used to induce an abortion. Catherine Herring meets with Houston police. Mason Herring was arrested in November 2022 and charged with assault with intent to force an abortion, assault of a pregnant person, and attempted injury to a child. He agrees to a plea deal; the first assault charge is dropped and the injury to a child charge is reduced to a third-degree felony. Herring will spend 180 days in county jail with 10 years probation.

Vegas Woman Shoots Pastor Dead in Front of Family After Feud Over Chickens

Nick Davi and his wife move to Las Vegas and join Grace Point Church. As the family grows with the birth of two children, so does Nick Davi’s calling. Nick Davi joins the staff at the church, eventually becoming the Pastor of Operations, overseeing the church’s 30,000-square-foot facility.  The family settles in a gated townhome community in the North Las Vegas Court at Aliante. Over the last year, difficulties with a neighbor have made it necessary for Davi to make multiple complaints to the Homeowners Association. And that’s not all.   The situation is so bad. Davi calls the police twice in one month and obtains a restraining order against the neighbor. The family even moves out of their condo for a few weeks to de-escalate tensions.  They stay with friends but return home as necessary to collect additional clothes and personal effects. When Nick Davi files for a restraining order against his neighbor, he tells police he and his family feel “terrorized ”  after weeks of alleged harassment. The family says the neighbor threw rocks and large amounts of dog feces into their yard, accused the neighbor of flooding their home, and during one confrontation threatened the Davi children who were playing in their backyard. The neighbor reportedly pulled a finger across her throat in a cutting motion and said the family was next.    The Davi family stops at their home to get fresh clothing and other personal items. The family is pulling out of a parking spot as Joe Junio drives by them, and according to 8 News,  parks her car right next to Davi's car and rolls down her windows. Pastor Nick gets out of his car to talk to Junio, as the children use a cell phone to record the altercation. As Nick Davi asks Junio "What is your problem with us?" Junio opens her car door, takes a shooter stance, and fires a gun at Pastor Nick Davi. Davi is shot in the stomach. Junio then turns the weapon on Sarah David.  According to Grace Point Pastor Ty Neal, "Sarah goes on the offensive and wrestles the gun away." Sarah Davi is shot in the thigh. Joe Junio runs into her townhouse as 911 is called. Pastor Nick Davi dies from his injuries. Joining Nancy Grace Today: Craig W. Drummond -  Las Vegas Attorney, Call the Captain, Fmr.

Perp Leaves His Bloody Jeans by Young Mom's Body, Wears Her Leotards to Escape

Denisse Oleas-Arancibia has not been in touch with her son and is worried something has happened. As her son reports her missing in Queens, where she lives, the front desk at the SoHo 54 Hotel on Watts Street is being asked to perform a wellness check on one of their guests. Despite a "do not disturb" sign on the door, a hotel employee entered the room and saw the 38-year-old Oleas-Arancibia lying covered with a blanket. She looked like she was resting so the employee quickly backed out of the room and reported to the front desk that the guest was sleeping. Police, following up on the missing person report filed by her son, end up at the SoHo 54 Hotel in Manhattan. It is around 10:30 a.m. when a maid enters the room and realizes that Denisse Oleas-Arancibia is not sleeping, but rather, the blanket has been used to cover the body of a woman who has been beaten to death.  Police arrive at room 1190 on the 11th floor of the SoHo 54 Hotel and find a bloody crime scene with evidence left behind by the possible killer.  The victim has been beaten and strangled, and there are fragments of plastic embedded in her head and an iron covered in blood next to her. Police catch a break when they find a pair of blood-soaked men's pants with a receipt. Police find surveillance video of the man in the leggings walking through the lobby and immediately begin their hunt. NYPD Chief of Detectives Joseph Kenny says police have video of the woman arriving at the location wearing a distinct pair of leggings and later on a male, leaving the hotel wearing the same leggings. And of course, the male pants covered in blood left behind in the hotel room Investigators say they can track the suspect's movements through the victim's credit card and MetroCard the suspect allegedly stole and is using. As investigators are identifying their suspect in New York,  Arizona Police have their hands full with a one-man crime wave. On February 17, in Phoenix, Arizona, an attempted carjacking and stabbing happen. The next morning, February 18 at 8:30 a.m. in Surprise Arizona,  a man goes into a McDonald's women's restroom, crawls under a stall door, and threatens a McDonald's employee with a gun. She screams and he stabs her several times before fleeing the facility. Police arrive at the McDonalds in Surprise Arizona but the suspect has fled on foot. Employees get out a good description of the man and in a matter of minutes, someone matching his description steals a car.  Surprise, Phoenix, and Scottsdale Police are all alerted and looking for the stolen car when the Scottsdale Police see the vehicle and get a good look at the suspect driving. He is pulled over and police take 26-year-old Raad Almansoori into custody.

MADDIE, 13, Vanishes From Church Parking Lot as MOM'S LIVE-IN BUSTED ON SEX CRIMES

Madeline, 13, has been missing since Monday morning when her mom's boyfriend dropped the teen off near the Peace United Methodist Church, a few blocks from Hunters Creek Middle School in Orlando.  At approximately 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Madeline's mom goes to pick her up and finds that Madeline never reported to school.  Police started canvassing the area, looking for any witnesses or surveillance video. Later that evening, police called in bloodhounds.   The dog did an extensive search but did not provide any results about her whereabouts. The last person to see Madeline Soto before she vanished, was the mom's boyfriend Steven Stearns. He is now under arrest for sexual battery and possession of child sexual abuse material.  As part of the investigation into the whereabouts of Madeline, Orange County Sheriff's Office Detectives forensically examined Stephan Stearns' cell phone and discovered disturbing images. Looking into the phone's data, detectives uncovered attempts to delete evidence from the device as well. The Orange County Sheriff's Office is still actively investigating Madeline Soto's disappearance and 37-year-old Stephan Sterns is now the prime suspect.

JURORS: Missing Tot Harmony Montgomery Dad Killed His Daughter

Adam Montgomery has been convicted in the death of his 5-year-old daughter, Harmony. Her body has never been recovered. It only took the jury six hours of deliberation spread over two days, to hand down the verdict. Police said that “on or about Dec. 7, 2019,” Montgomery repeatedly struck 5-year-old  Harmony “in the head with a closed fist.”   New Hampshire police say the then 5-year-old vanished sometime between November 28 and December 10, 2019. Her disappearance was not reported for two years.    The family of Harmony Montgomery says the New Hampshire Division For Children Youth and Families failed the little girl. According to Blair Miller, who adopted Harmony's younger brother, DCYF officials told him, Harmony had been reunited with her father. Miller had asked about the possibility of adopting Harmony as well.  According to court documents, Kevin Montgomery, Adam's Uncle, called DCYF after he noticed Harmony had a black eye. Kevin Montgomery later told police his nephew, Adam, admitted to physically abusing Harmony.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Blair Miller - Adoptive Father of Jamison (Victim's Biological Brother), News Anchor, Cox Media Group Washington News Bureau; Twitter/Facebook/Instagram: @BlairMillerTV Jessica Garth – Chief, Special Victims & Family Violence Unit, State’s Attorney’s Office, Prince George’s County, MD; Twitter/Facebook/Instagram: @BlairMillerTV Caryn L.

Delphi Murders: Sweet Girls Abby & Libby Wear SCARVES to Cover Neck Wounds at Funerals

New claims have surfaced that Delphi murder victim Libby German was almost decapitated by her killer. What's more, some are questioning whether the real killer is behind bars.   When the girls' bodies were first found on property owned by Ron Logan, he became a suspect. Police served search warrants on his property and took away his Ford Pickup truck for processing.  Logan was also arrested at that time on a probation violation. Ron Logan claims he was not at home when the kidnapping and murders happened, but was 20 miles away buying tropical fish in Lafayette. Logan says he got home around 6:30 in the evening and neighbors asked for permission to look on the property for the girls. Logan was questioned by detectives at length, but ultimately police let him go and moved on to other potential suspects.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Matthew Mangino – Attorney, Former District Attorney (Lawrence County); Author: “The Executioner’s Toll: The Crimes, Arrests, Trials, Appeals, Last Meals, Final Words and Executions of 46 Persons in the United States” Dr. Jorey Krawczyn – Police Psychologist, Adjunct Faculty with Saint Leo University; Research Consultant with Blue Wall Institute, Author: Operation S.O.S. – Practical Recommendations to Help “Stop Officer Suicide”  Sheryl McCollum  – Forensics Expert & Cold Case Investigative Research Institute Founder; Host of Podcast: “Zone 7;” X: @149Zone7 Joe Scott Morgan – Professor of Forensics: Jacksonville State University, Author of “Blood Beneath My Feet,” and Host: “Body Bags with Joseph Scott Morgan;” X: @JoScottForensic Susan Hendricks - Journalist, Author: “Down the Hill: My Descent into the Double Murder in Delphi;' IG @susan_hendricks/ X @SusanHendicks  Barbara MacDonald -Court TV Documentary Producer, Co-host/producer of HLN’s “Down The Hill Podcast” and documentary, X:@NewsyBarbara  Kim Dunlap - Reporter for Kokomo Tribune, X: @KimDunlap_KT    See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Missing Girl Audrii, 11, Body Tied to Rock, Fished from River: Nazi Sex Perv Suspect

Audrii Cunningham's body has been found along the Trinity River after water levels were lowered, allowing detectives access.   Don Steven McDougal, 42, led investigators to the location earlier in the investigation. McDougal has now been charged with capital murder.   Don Steven McDougal has been a person of interest since the first 24 hours of Audrii Cunningham's disappearance. He was arrested on an unrelated charge. In 2010, Don Steven McDougal was working in a local garage with Elic Bryan III. Bryan says McDougal seemed like an OK guy, until one night when McDougal had too much to drink and Bryan had to kick him out of his house. McDougal left, briefly, and came back with a knife, slashing tires and trying to stab Bryan.  Bryan had to get his gun to try to run a drunk McDougal off his property, but it took police with police dogs coming out to track him down and take McDougal to jail. Don Steven McDougal admits he was supposed to take Audrii Cunningham to the bus stop but he has yet to tell investigators if she made it to the bus stop or not.  Joining Nancy Grace Today:  Elic Bryan III - Assaulted by Don Steven McDougal in 2010  Lana Shadwick – Attorney, Former Harris County Judge and Prosecutor; Legal Analyst for Breitbart, Texas; Facebook: @TXBoots Caryn L.

Families Say Panera Bread Lemonade Can Cause Death After Daughter's Heart Injury

Lauren Skerritt, 28, is a fantastic physical shape due to being an athlete and obstacle course racer. The Rhode Islander stops by a Greenville Panera Bread and drinks two and a half servings of Panera Bread's "Charged Lemonade". The next day, Skerritt is rushed to the Emergency room suffering from an irregular heartbeat.  Skerritt is shocked when doctors diagnose her with a heart condition that can lead to stroke and other complications known as atrial fibrillation. Skerrit says her heart problem was caused by the popular beverage from Panera Bread that contains as much caffeine as three cans of Red Bull, according to a lawsuit. Skerrit's lawsuit is not the first, two other suits have already been filed against the restaurant chain over its "charged lemonade." Panera has said the previous two lawsuits were “equally without merit.”  This lawsuit claims Skerritt continues to experience supraventricular tachycardia with associated shortness of breath, palpitations, brain fog, difficulty thinking and concentrating, body shakes, and weakness.

Convicted Killer Tex McIver to Walk Free?

Claud "Tex" McIver is convicted in the shooting death of his wife, Diane. That conviction has been reversed and now, the once-prominent Atlanta attorney takes a plea deal that will pave his way to a release. Georgia’s highest court ruled that the jury should have been able to consider a misdemeanor involuntary manslaughter charge. McIver has now pleaded guilty to lesser charges of involuntary manslaughter, conduct, and possession of a gun during the commission of a crime. He will receive credit for the time he’s already spent in custody.

SICK PARENTS FORCE GIRL, 6, TO LIE IN DOG CAGE, ZIP-TIE, TORTURE

When his 6-year-old daughter becomes unresponsive, Jacob Weight calls 911. He tells dispatch one of his older children was bathing his 6-year-old when she went limp and suffered some type of seizure. First responders are met by Jacob at the door. He refuses to allow EMS into the house, telling them he must get his daughter dressed. He brings her outside where she can be seen. Police and first responders are taken aback by the conditions at the home. Trash is scattered about. Feces is smeared on the ground, and the smell of urine is very strong. The 6-year-old girl they have been called to treat is covered in open sores and KDKA reports she has extensive bruises and appears malnourished. Once the 6-year-old girl is at the hospital the full extent of her injuries is apparent. According to a medical report, her teeth are broken and rotted, and her feet are swollen. When she arrives at Uniontown Hospital,  she is found to be hypothermic, with a body temperature registering at only 88.7 degrees Fahrenheit. Pennsylvania state troopers begin their investigation into the parents of the children in the house,  after police note that doctors at the hospital state multiple times, that the little girl could have died as a result of the abuse and neglect. The doctors also say if she returns to her current environment she is likely to die of the abuse and neglect. During the investigation, Weight and Frost's teenage nephew, who lived with them, describes how the young girl's mother would zip-tie her hands and feet, lock her naked in a cage and refuse to wash her. Frost would also starve the little girl, not feeding her for days at a time. The floor under the cage was rotting from feces and urine that was never cleaned. WTAE reports that a 5-year-old child was interviewed and asked if anyone helped the girl clean up her poop and pee. The child responded, "They want her to eat it... my parents." Jacob William Weight, 37, and 33-year-old Mimi Ann Frost are charged with child abuse, involuntary servitude, and strangulation among several other offenses.  They are accused of starving their daughter while making sure their other children and dogs, had plenty to eat.

Kentucky Moms' Bahama 'GIRLS TRIP,' RAPED & SODOMIZED BY STAFF, BLEED, VOMIT, Tell Their Story

Childhood friends, Amber Shearer and Dongayla Dobson, have carried their friendship into adulthood with children of their own. At 31 years old,  these two moms arrange a "No-Kids Trip" on the Carnival Cruise Ship Elation, where they will be on a 4-day cruise from Jacksonville Florida to the Bahamas. Arriving in the Bahamas, Shearer and Dobson go on an excursion called "Pirate's Cove Beach Getaway".  The pair want to collect some special sea shells to take home to their children. At Pirates Cove, a resort staffer offers the women a two-for-one drink deal. The women order, but say the drinks are much stronger than expected.  The moms decide to post a video to social media for friends and family, but immediately, Dongayla's mother, Frankie King,  sees the video and calls her daughter. King says the moms are not acting like themselves, giggling, laughing, all over the place. King asks how much they have had to drink and Dongayla says not much, she hasn't finished her first drink yet. After drinking the cocktails, the pair sets out to look for seashells on the beach when they say they are approached by a male resort staff member who tells them he knows a good place to find shells. The staff member allegedly leads the women to an isolated area away from the main beach area.  The next thing Shearer remembers is waking up in the middle of the alleged attack. Dobson says they were just conscious enough, or just aware enough, to know that their attackers were in uniforms.Two hours after Frankie King talks to her daughter, King receives a text message from her daughter, it says, "Call us now, we've been drugged and raped." A Pirates Cove Staff member finds Amanda Shearer and Dongayla Dobson unconscious in a bathroom at the resort. A nurse practitioner, Ladonna Batty, is on vacation on the same Carnival Cruise and is asked to assist the women. Shearer and Dobson know they have been assaulted and police are called.

Mom-of-5 Rachel Morin Raped, Murdered, Left Nude on Trail, STILL UNSOLVED EVEN W/ DNA

A sketch of a possible suspect in the brutal Maryland murder of Rachel Morin has now been released. DNA collected at the scene linked the suspect to another assault across the country in Los Angeles.  A doorbell camera captures the suspect as the left the California home, but it didn't show the suspect's face.  Working with a sketch artist,  investigators interviewed the witnesses of the home invasion in Los Angeles, as well as witnesses in Maryland, especially around the Ma and Pa trail.  Some new information has been released about where Rachel Morin's body was found and where investigators believe her killer was hiding. Captain Andy Lane says there are drainage culverts along the trail, but most people wouldn't notice them because they are hidden by shrubbery and trees in the summertime. Standing at the scene, there is a bend in the trail near the hidden culverts. Investigators believe the killer attacked Morin in the bend on the trail, then drug her body through the weeds, trees, and undergrowth to the culverts. That is where Rachel Morin was murdered.

NEWBORN DEAD After Mom 'Mistakenly' Bakes Baby in Oven

Mariah Thomas and her 1-month-old baby, Za'Riah, live with Mariah's parents. Za'Riah's grandparents leave for work just before 8 a.m. on Friday. After 1 p.m., Mariah Thomas calls her mother at work, hysterically screaming something is wrong with the baby. Her mother tells her to call 911. Mariah Thomas reports her baby daughter is not breathing. When Mariah Thomas' father comes home, he smells smoke and runs to the baby's crib. He sees that Baby Za'Riah looks burned. He picks her up, realizing his granddaughter is dead.  Mariah Thomas says she was putting Za'Riah down for a nap and thought she put her in the crib, but accidentally put her in the oven. First responders arrive to treat what they think is an infant who isn't breathing,  but instead, they find the baby with what appears to be thermal injuries on various parts of her body. She is wearing a bodysuit over a diaper, but the clothing appears to have melted onto the diaper and it appears very dirty, possibly burned on the backside. A baby blanket with significant burn marks is found in the living room.  Thomas has been charged for allegedly placing her child in an oven, resulting in the death of the 1-month-old child. Mariah Thomas faces the Class A Felony of Endangering the Welfare of a Child in the First-degree, death of a child.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Bernarda Villalona – NY Criminal Defense Attorney & Former Prosecutor, Villalona Law, PLLC.: @BernardaVillalona (FaceBook, Instagram, LinkedIn, TikTok, Threads); Twitter: @VillalonaLaw Dr. Angela Arnold – Psychiatrist, Atlanta GA.

'Drunk' TV Star and Bar Sued Over CRASHES

A popular Pasadena restaurant and nightclub has been dragged into a lawsuit filed against former General Hospital star Haley Pullos. Pullos was allegedly drunk and high on pot when she caused a near-fatal car crash. The driver Pullos hit sustained a serious injury and she is now also suing the No Comment Lounge. She claims the 25-year-old actress was moonlighting in the bar that night and the actress was plied with booze and then allowed to drive herself home.  Pullos is now facing driving under the influence charges after her car flew over the dividing barrier, and into oncoming traffic. She careened off one car and collided head-on with another car, that was going about 60 mph.  Police reportedly recovered marijuana edibles and alcohol from the actress’ car.  Firefighters had to use "the jaws of life" to free Pullos from her car. That's when the "General Hospital" actress lashed out at the responders shouting, “This is a $400 f**king shirt!” Joining Nancy Grace Today:  Jarrett Ferentino- Homicide Prosecutor, Facebook & Instagram: Jarrett Ferentino Dr. Shari Schwartz- Forensic Psychologist (specializing in Capital Mitigation and Victim Advocacy); Twitter: @TrialDoc; Author: "Criminal Behavior" and "Where Law and Psychology Intersect: Issues in Legal Psychology" Robert Crispin - Private Investigator: “Crispin Special Investigations;" Former Federal Task Force Officer for United States Department of Justice, DEA and Miami Field Division; Former Homicide and Crimes Against Children Investigator; Facebook: Crispin Special Investigations, Inc.

AUSTIN SERIAL KILLER FEARS: Families' Anger Boils

In 1960, Lady Bird Lake was built by the city of Austin. The river-like reservoir was created as a cooling pond for Austin's then-new city power plant. The 416-acre lake is now primarily used for recreation, but many in the area are now concerned is it the hunting ground for a killer. There have been 10 deaths reported since 2022: four in 2022, five in 2023, and one in the past few days. Even though police have given no indication there are signs of foul play, social media has lit up with speculation. According to the San Antonio Current, rumors of a serial killer hunting young men and dumping their bodies in Lady Bird Lake ran rampant last April. That's when Police recovered the bodies of Jason John, Clifton Axtell, Jonathon Honey, and Christopher Hays-Clark — all between the ages of 20 and 40 and all recovered from Lady Bird Lake. Reegan Aparicio says she has no doubts that her longtime boyfriend Chris Hays-Clark was placed in Lady Bird Lake. The dental nurse says despite police assurances that there was no foul play in Hays-Clark's death, she believes he was already dead when he went into the water. That sentiment, according to DailyMail, is shared by others who have lost loved ones to the lake. Jason John’s parents also believe there is more to his disappearance and his former roommate believes he was drugged. Martin Gutierrez’s brother says he believes Martin was murdered in 2018. Despite family concerns, Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon says, "Nothing has come to light that would indicate that there is a serial killer in Austin." Aparicio says she believes the Austin Police Department is failing her and the other Lady Bird Lake victims' families.

SCHOOL-SHOOTER-MOM GUILTY: Ignored Son's Filthy Room, Cavities & 9mm

Jennifer Crumbley becomes the first parent in the United States to be found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for a mass school shooting committed by her son, Ethan. She was convicted of four counts of involuntary manslaughter and faces a maximum sentence of 60 years in prison. Prosecutors said Jennifer Crumbley knew her son was struggling with mental health issues. They alleged instead of getting him the help he needed, Jennifer and her husband, James Crumbley, bought Ethan the gun he later used in the attack. The prosecution also showed the Crumbleys were attempting to flee when they realized they were going to be charged with the crime. James Crumbley faces the same charges as his wife, on March 5.

BREAKING: MISSING ELLA,14, HELD BY CONVICTED SEX OFFENDER 3 WEEKS FOUND

As the public becomes aware of Ella Jones's disappearance, the Mount Vernon Police Department receives information on a possible suspect's identity. The person was already said to be a male named "Keith" possibly. Investigators also determined that Ella Jones may have used a "RideShare" service when she left her home. RideShare services are not prevalent in Ella Jones' area, so Mount Vernon Police were able to narrow the search and locate a rideshare Jones may have used. Investigators identified a man named "Keith" who ordered a ride share for Ella and his address in South Haven Michigan. The FBI reaches out to Van Buren County Michigan Sherrif's department about a possible suspect named Keith Freerksen with an address in South Haven Michigan possibly being involved in the disappearance of a 14-year-old girl in Mt Vernon, Washington.   Van Buren County Sheriff Daniel Abbott says his detectives investigated the possible suspect location and identified the car suspected of transporting the 14-year-old girl 2,000 miles from Washington to Michigan. After obtaining a search warrant, Sheriff  Abbott says they waited for the suspect vehicle to return to the property before executing the search warrants. Sheriff  Abbott says as the detectives watched the property, they noticed there were three homes on the property and several people were seen in the residences. The suspect was identified as one of the people in one of the residences on the property.  Detectives coordinate with the local uniformed police officers in marked cars to roll in with them and execute the search warrant. Having executed the search warrant, all individuals on the property were separated so detectives could begin the interview process. The suspect immediately told detectives the 14-year-old girl was there on the property. Once the suspect was read his Miranda rights, he lawyered up and stopped talking The suspect is 30-year-old Keith Freerksen, a convicted sex offender. Sheriff Daniel Abbott says the Freerksen spoke with and groomed the victim online over an extended period before she took a ride share to the suspect's home in Michigan. Keith Freerksen was arraigned on nine charges: two counts of trafficking a minor, three counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a minor, one count of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, one count of accosting a child for immoral purposes, and two counts of using a computer to commit a crime. He faces up to life in prison if convicted.

Body Bags with Joseph Scott Morgan: The Nitrogen Execution Experiment

Joseph Scott Morgan and Dave Mack will tell the story of a murder and why the man convicted of the murder will be put to death in a very unique way. Kenneth Eugene Smith was convicted of the 1988 murder-for-hire of Elizabeth Sennett. Pastor Charles Sennett recruited Billy Gray Williams to kill his wife Elizabeth and Williams hired John Forrest Parker and Kenneth Eugene Smith to carry out the murder. A week after the murder the Charles Sennett confessed to his family then shot himself in the head. Williams, Parker, and Smith were arrested and charged and convicted. Williams was sentenced to life and died in prison in 2020. Parker and Smith were sentenced to death. Parker was executed by lethal injection in 2010. Smith was scheduled to be executed in November of 2022 but the execution team was unable to connect the intravenous lines before time ran out. After much debate, the state agreed not to try lethal injection again on Smith but would instead use a method of execution, Nitrogen Hypoxia. Joseph Scott Morgan will explain what it is and why it is being tried for the first time...ever.    Transcript Highlights   00:02:29 Joe talks about travel  00:05:55 Talk Investigation of murder  00:06:41 Talk about experience as death investigator  00:08:37 Discuss sharing PTSD  00:12:18 Talk about nitrogen   00:14:21 Discussion Death Penalty  00:18:56 Talk about execution used to be public   00:21:30 Discussion about new method  00:23:13 Talk about the Crime   00:25:51 Talk Murder-for-Hire plot  00:27:31 Discussion public execution  00:30:24 Talk about the debate to come  00:35:17 Discussion Is there a “best way” to kill somebody  00:38:22 Talk about assisted suicide See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Socialite Murder Trial: Mom of 2 Boys Mowed Down by "Drunk" Socialite Runs From Court Sobbing at Sight of Son's Lifeless Body

In court, mom Nancy Iskander breaks down as photos taken by a witness to the brutal hit and run of her sons are shown in court.  Iskander breaks into tears after calling out her son's name, then runs out of the courtroom. Just after 7 pm, on a September evening, Jacob and Mark Iskander, their siblings, and parents go for an evening stroll to a nearby lake.   The 6 member family is crossing in a crosswalk at a three-way intersection when mother Nancy hears a speeding car barreling their way.  The mom says her husband and daughter were father away from the street. She tries to signal to the two SUVs to slow down.  She tries to pull the children back, only managing to grab 1 of them and dive out of the way.  Jacob and Mark are hit.   Mark Iskander dies at the scene. Jacob dies later at the hospital. According to police, Mark was thrown 254 feet.   Nancy Iskander tells police that two SUVs  were  "zig-zagging with each other as if they were playing or racing.”  She says the drivers didn’t stop, at the intersection, not even when the 11-year-old was on the hood of the car. Deputies reportedly catch up with a white Mercedes with significant front-end damage a third of a mile from the scene.  Behind the wheel is Rebecca Grossman.  The Los Angeles County Sheriff's department says they believe that vehicle was traveling over 80 miles an hour. Grossman’s breathalyzer test after the crash showed a blood-alcohol content of 0.076% according to local news reports. The legal limit in California is 0.08%.  A blood sample taken three hours after the crash registered at the 0.08% mark. Rebecca Grossman is charged with two felony counts each of second-degree murder, vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence, and one felony count of hit-and-run driving resulting in death. Grossman has pleaded not guilty.   Joining Nancy Grace Today: Matthew Mangino - Attorney, Former District Attorney (Lawrence County, PA), Author: "The Executioner's Toll: The Crimes, Arrests, Trials, Appeals, Last Meals, Final Words and Executions of 46 Persons in the United States", Twitter: @MatthewTMangino, MattMangino.com  Caryn L.

'HIGHLY EDUCATED BEAUTY' Sucks Bong, Stabs Date 108 TIMES IN 'POT FRENZY,' GETS ZERO JAIL TIME

Chad O'Melia and Bryn Spejcher are hanging out at O'Melia's home when a roommate comes home but goes to take a shower. He starts hearing noises downstairs and when he hears the sounds of things breaking, he takes a look. The roommate sees furniture toppled, the couch is flipped over and covered in blood, and O'Melia is severely wounded.  O'Melia begs for help. Bryn Spejcher has attacked Chad O'Melia in a pot-induced rage.  When police arrive they find Chad O'Melia dead from over 100 stab wounds, and Bryn Spejcher crying and screaming hysterically. The bloody knife is still in her hands. As officers try to disarm her, Spejcher plunges the knife into her own neck.  Officers use a Taser and several baton blows before they can disarm Spejcher finally. Bryn Spejcher is charged with murder with special allegations of using a deadly weapon, a crime involving great violence, violent conduct that indicates a danger to society, and being armed with and using a weapon in the commission of the crime. Spejcher posts bail and remains out on bail over the next 5-years of delays to allow for hearings and experts to provide studies. Prosecutors reduced the charge to involuntary manslaughter after their expert psychologist agreed with defense experts that Spejcher was suffering from cannabis-induced psychosis when she stabbed O’Melia to death. When the case finally gets to trial there is no argument about whether Bryn Spejcher killed Chad O’Melia or if her psychosis was legitimate.  During the trial, the LA Times reports, a medical expert testifies that Spejcher’s behavior is the result of cannabis-induced psychosis . According to the National Library of Medicine, a diagnosis of the disorder is given when hallucinations or delusions materialize shortly after consuming cannabis. According to the VC Star, Spejcher's defense attorneys claim that their client was "involuntarily intoxicated," and that O'Melia had allegedly bullied and intimidated her into smoking the last bit of marijuana.  A jury finds Bryn Spejcher guilty of involuntary manslaughter in a killing triggered by cannabis psychosis, but Ventura County Superior Court Judge David Worley announced Spejcher would be sentenced to two years probation and a suspended prison sentence of four years.

ALEX MURDAUGH JUROR: 'I WAS PRESSURED TO FIND HIM GUILTY!"

There will be no new double murder trial for Alex Murdaugh, even though one juror says her vote was influenced by comments made by Colleton County Clerk Becky Hill. According to Juror Z,  “She made it seem like he was already guilty.” Hill allegedly made comments such as "watch him closely" and "watch his body language." During Juror Z's testimony, she was asked by Judge Jean Toal if her verdict was based entirely on the testimony,  evidence, and law presented in this case. The juror answered yes.  She was also asked if she heard Becky Hill make any comment about this case before your verdict. Again Juror Z answered yes, and that the comments influenced her decision. Prosecutor Creighton Waters that in her affidavit the juror had responded "I voted guilty because I felt pressured by the other jurors."  After hearing all the testimony, Judge Toal ruled that the defense did not show that Hill's improper comment or question actually influenced the juror's verdict.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Tim Jansen - Criminal Defense Lawyer and Former Federal Prosecutor; Legal Analyst for Tallahassee Democrat’s Newspaper Dr. Bethany Marshall – Psychoanalyst (Beverly Hills); Twitter: @DrBethanyLive/ Instagram & TikTok: drbethanymarshall; Appearing in the new show, “Paris in Love” on Peacock Chris McDonough – Director At the Cold Case Foundation, Former Homicide Detective; Host of YouTube channel: “The Interview Room” Dr. Michelle Dupre – Forensic Pathologist and former Medical Examiner, Author: “Homicide Investigation Field Guide” & “Investigating Child Abuse Field Guide”, Ret.

GLAM 'RUSSIAN' SWINGER Takes Plea Deal in HIT ON HUBBY

Tatyana Remley accepts a plea deal after being charged with soliciting someone to kill her husband. Remley approached a friend with an offer of $2 million dollars to end her estranged husband's life. The friend went to police, who set up a sting.   The couple was in the midst of a divorce. In her filings, Remley says her husband held a gun to her head, threatening to kill her, and chased her around the house with a knife, trying to kill her. In 2012, the Remley couple gained attention for orchestrating a mobile equestrian event named “Valitar in Del Mar.” The show was quickly canceled, however, plunging the couple into lawsuit battles with vendors who claimed they didn’t get paid.

TAYLOR SWIFT CREEPY STALKER WON'T STOP

A 33-year-old Seattle man arrested three times in five days at or near Taylor Swift's New York apartment.  David Crowe's latest arrest came just two hours after he was in court for stalking her home.  Crowe first appeared at the McDonald's two blocks away from Swift's New York City townhouse. Then a witness says Crowe eased his way back down to Swift's building and was seen looking in a dumpster.  Then Crowe sat down on the loading dock a few doors down from Swift's apartment. Someone who recognized Crowe called 911. Police arrested Crowe on a criminal contempt charge, due to the fact an order of protection had just been issued during his arraignment on two counts of harassment and two counts of stalking. David Crowe has been in New York for at least the last few months. The New York Post reports prosecutors revealed that Crowe has staked out Taylor Swift's townhouse thirty  times in the past two months.  And his recent arrest spree began Saturday afternoon when police got a 911 call about a "disorderly person" trying to open the door to Taylor Swift's townhouse. This is not the first time Taylor Swift has dealt with a stalker.  Last summer, Westerly Rhode Island Police Chief Paul Gingerella said a woman who had previously been warned to stay away from Taylor Swift's home in Rhode Island was arrested outside the beachfront property.  A Florida man broke into Swift's home in New York City in 2018. He was sentenced to jail after pleading guilty to criminal contempt and attempted burglary. That was followed up in 2019 by an Iowa man who said he just wanted to meet the singer. He was arrested near her beachfront mansion carrying a crowbar and lock picks. A few months after that experience, a man from New Jersey was caught inside her home.

BLOOD-SOAKED BRA, SHIRT, ZIP TIES In Trial of 'Other Woman' in Jennifer Dulos Murder

The Connecticut State Police believe Fotis Dulos attacked Jennifer Dulos at her New Canaan home,  killed her, and then tried to dispose of the evidence in trash bins around Hartford. Michelle Troconis was with Dulos during the time he was dumping trash bags. Her attorney, Jon Schoehorn, says Troconis told police multiple times that she was on her phone, unaware of what her boyfriend was doing. The jury has now seen that recovered evidence, retrieved from the trash.  Connecticut State Police Sgt. Kevin Duggan testified about what was found in the trash bins and the process used for finding them.  He described how the items were taken from the trash bin, the contents spread out, photographed, and then placed into an investigator trash bag. The items were then taken for analysis. One of the items recovered from the trash bins was a bra with what appears to be blood stains. The bra's back clasp was still connected, but the front had been cut. A long-sleeved shirt is shown. It too, looks like it has bloodstains on it and has been cut in much the same way the blood-stained bra. Duggan also testifies that officers uncovered zip ties, plastic ponchos, a white t-shirt, a bath towel, black gloves, a screwdriver, and a box cutter, and all appeared to have blood-like stains.

BABY IRIS DEAD After Daddy's JEALOUS MISTRESS Feeds Her Nail Polish Remover, Batteries

A 1-year-old child dies after being fed water beads, batteries, and acetone.  Aleisia Owens, 21, the girlfriend of the baby Iris'  father, has been arrested for intentionally feeding the child harmful items. According to police, the child died of organ failure, a result of acetone poisoning.  The baby's mother first took the girl to the hospital, after  changing her diaper and finding "water beads." Over the next few days, Iris passes about 20 water beads. She also passes 3 button-shaped batteries and a metal screw. After 4 days, the baby can go home with her mother.  Pennsylvania Child Youth Services, CYS, inspects both parents' homes and, according to Newsweek, finds no issue at either residence. Iris lives with her mother full-time, but she continues to visit her dad at his house where Bailey Jacoby lives with his girlfriend, Aleisia Lynnae Owens. During a weekend visitation at her father's house,  Bailey Jacoby goes to the grocery store, leaving Iris with his live-in girlfriend.  As he prepares to check out at the grocery store,  Owens calls Jacoby and tells him that something is wrong with Iris, she isn't acting like herself, and she is unresponsive. Jacoby tells Owens to call 911. Emergency responders note that Iris is breathing but with a fixed gaze and weak response. She's transported to the hospital and she dies four days later.   The homicide investigation heats up when investigators discovered Bailey Jacoby's live-in girlfriend, the last person to be with Iris alone, Aleisia Lynnae Owens, had been researching online the harm that water beads and batteries can cause children before the child ingesting the items.  The Attorney General's Office confirms that Owens also conducted online research into household items that could cause serious harm or death to children.  Forensic extractions of Owen's cell phone show she searched online for topics such as, “If your child drinks a lot of nail polish remover, what happens,” “What happens if a baby eats nail polish,” “How many cases have there been from babies dying from eating nail polish.” Another search on Owens’ phone reads, “In how many cases have kids died from eating water beads" “water beads harmful" "Water beads near me" “Beauty products that are poisonous to kids” During the days while Iris Alfera was in the hospital as well as the day after she passed away, investigators discovered numerous online searches conducted on Aleisia Owen's phone for information on how to pass a polygraph test.

SCOTT PETERSON WRANGLES NEW TRIAL BID IN MURDERS OF LACI & BABY CONNER

When pregnant Laci Peterson went missing, it was her stepfather who called 911, not her husband. When Laci's body was found four months later in San Francisco Bay, Scott Peterson became suspect number one. Prosecutors revealed he was having an affair with a woman who did not know he was married.   Scott Peterson has always maintained his innocence, even after his conviction. His death sentence has been overturned and now Peterson is serving a life sentence without parole. Now, the Innocence Project is taking on the conviction of Scott Peterson claiming there is new evidence. As the Los Angeles Innocence Project says the new evidence raises questions about who abducted and killed Laci Peterson. They also claim Peterson's State and Federal Constitutional Rights were violated and have filed a motion seeking evidence from the original trial.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Dale Carson – High-profile Attorney (Jacksonville), Former FBI Agent & Former Police Officer (Miami-Dade County); Author: “Arrest-Proof Yourself”  Caryn L.

Mom-of-5 Rachel Morin Raped, Murdered, Left Nude on Trail, STILL UNSOLVED EVEN W/ DNA

Months after the body of Rachel Morin is found along a trail the Ma & Pa Trail, her killer is still a mystery. DNA found at the crime scene matched to a home invasion in Los Angeles 5 months earlier, but investigators are still not sure who the DNA belongs to. The only evidence made public is a video of the man they believe is the suspect, seen leaving the home invasion scene in LA. But now, WMAR 2 reports that investigators are following up a lead in Washington DC. Police aren't calling the person a suspect, but the hope is this person can point them in the right direction. Morin's family is turning to all options in trying to bring this killer to justice. They are working with profiler Pat Brown to provide more information about the possible suspect in Morin's murder. The possible suspect is Hispanic and appeared to be in his early to mid-20s. He stands around 5 foot 9 and weighs about 160 pounds. Brown says this person is likely narcissistic, lacks empathy, is manipulative, and a pathological liar. The family has also created a flyer using still images from the doorbell camera footage of the suspect sending out 10,000 flyers to homes and schools near the LA crime scene. Morin Family attorney, Randolph Rice, tells CBS News the reason the family is reaching out to schools in Los Angeles is the suspect could have been in high school as early as two years ago. They are hoping a teacher who taught him and saw him every single day during the school year will recognize the suspect.

THE NANNY KNOWS! Missing Mom Jennifer Dulos' Nanny SPILLS FAMILY SECRETS IN MURDER TRIAL

The long-awaited trial of Michelle Troconis got underway with prosecutors presenting evidence from the day Jennifer Farber Dulos went missing.  The first person to testify in the case was Lieutenant Aaron LaTourette, New Canaan Police Department. He was the first patrol officer on the scene and the first person to notice possible blood in the garage. Talking to another officer wearing a body cam, LaTourette is heard talking about the possibility the vehicle hit a deer, but didn't see anything indicating there had been that type of event. The jury watched 20 minutes of the footage of LaTourette and Officer Black of the New Canaan Police Department walking through the home and focusing on parts of the garage where officers believe they see what appears to be blood stains on the floor and a black SUV.  The officers are also seen looking through Jennifer Dulos' purse. The nanny,  Lauren Almeida, tells police it is unusual for Jennifer's purse to be in the house when she isn't home. It was the nanny who called the police in May of 2019, the night Jennifer Dulos disappeared.  Lauren Almeida has now testified about witnessing the marriage go from one of love and fun and trust to one of fear and intimidation after Fotis Dulos admitted to an affair.  Almeida told the jury how she helped Jennifer Dulos secretly move her things out of the house over a while so as not to alarm Fotis Dulos.  Almeida began as a part-time babysitter for the Dulos children in 2012 and eventually became their full-time nanny. On the stand, Almeida can tell the jury about the day Jennifer Dulos vanished. Jennifer Dulos dropped her children off at school and was never seen again. Her body has never been found. Almeida says the big change in the relationship between Jennifer and Fotis Dulos was during a vacation in March 2017. After a week in Aspen skiing in the snow, the family spent a week in Miami skiing in the water. In Miami, Jennifer Dulos tells the nanny, that Fotis Dulos is having an affair and she has proof. Almeida says she doesn't believe it at first, but over the next few months, everything changed. Jennifer Dulos has found receipts from when Fotis Dulos went to Utah on a trip with Troconis and another couple and emails confirming the relationship.  Almeida is convinced to help Jennifer Dulos secretly move items out of the house because she fears what Fotis Dulos would do to her or the kids if she filed for divorce while they were living under the same roof.

Alex Murdaugh’s three-day evidentiary hearing takes place later this month. The hearings will held in open court and court-controlled television cameras will be allowed. They cannot, however, focus on the faces of testifying jurors, who will be referred to by their juror numbers, not their names. The hearing will determine whether Murdaugh will be granted a new murder trial, after his attorneys, alleged jury tampering by Colleton County Clerk of Court Rebecca “Becky” Hill. Former S.C. Chief Justice Jean Toal is now the judge hearing the case. She took control of her South Carolina courtroom -, making several rulings affecting Alex Murdaugh’s bid. His attorneys say jury tampering by Colleton County Clerk of Court Becky Hill impacted the original trial’s outcome, and that according to Toal, will be the defense’s burden to prove. The attorneys argued the law only required them to prove improper contact with jurors had occurred. Toal says she will rule that, “Prejudice must be proved, not presumed.” Toal says the stand she will take on the specific evidence of ”what was said, when it was said, and how it impacted the jury,” lies with the defense, not an assumption on Becky Hill’s credibility. Toal told the courtroom that she would not allow the upcoming evidentiary hearing to turn into a trial of Becky Hill. Becky Hill is facing her own ongoing ethics and criminal investigations related to her conduct during and after the Murdaugh trial.  The judge says she intends to limit the witness list to the twelve deliberating jurors and Becky Hill.   An alternate juror and Juror 785, now known as the “egg lady” due to her insistence that she retrieve a dozen eggs from the jury room before leaving the courthouse, will not be allowed to testify.  Toal says she sees  “no necessity” to hear from anyone other than the (deliberating) jurors.”   What's more, Toal says she will be the one asking the questions.

Dishwasher Repairmen Find Starved Tot-Girl Horrifically Bound With Thick Duct Tape

Maintenance workers at a Houston apartment complex, get a service call for a non-working dishwasher.   As they make repairs,  a child can be heard crying, inconsolably, in another room.  The workers find a toddler, lying on the living room floor under a blanket. Lifting the blanket, the 2-year-old child’s limbs are duct-taped together. The workers take photos and videos, leave the apartment, and call Houston police. Police take the girl to the hospital, where doctors say she might not have survived the night, had she not been brought in for care. KPRC reports the child was determined to be non-verbal and suffering from physical abuse as well as psychological abuse and neglect. Doctors discovered she also suffered a brain bleed caused by head trauma, anemia, and kidney failure as a result of the abuse. Even though she is two years old, the victim is so malnourished, and her weight is equivalent to that of an average 1-year-old.  Child Protective Services meets with the adults and five other children living in the apartment. The biological mother of the 2-year-old girl lives in another state and left her daughter in the care of the child’s 27-year-old cousin, Toniesha Deshae Perkins. Perkins claims the other children living in the apartment often tie up the toddler and themselves. Houston Police interview the other children in the home.  They say the girl sleeps on the floor and regularly removes the tape from her arms, legs, and mouth. The children say the toddler "gets popped" when she does, and a lock has been put on the refrigerator to prevent the little one from accessing food.   Three adults living in the apartment, Toniesha Deshae Perkins, Perkins' boyfriend, 23-year-old Kenry Fluker, and the toddler’s 17-year-old aunt, Mya Jhari Breaux-McGruder, are now charged with injury to a child and unlawful restraint of a person under 17.  Joining Nancy Grace Today:  James Shelnutt – Attorney – The Shelnutt Law Firm, P.C.; 27-year Atlanta Metro Area Major Case Detective and Former S.W.A.T.

SERIAL RAPIST 'Nic Rossi' Hides in Scotland CLAIMING TO BE IRISH ORPHAN, NOW IN UTAH JAIL

Nicholas Alahverdian’s obituary appeared on a memorial site called Ever Loved. It detailed how the man, who grew up in foster care became a Harvard Graduate and a vocal critic of Rhode Island’s childcare system after suffering sexual abuse as a child.  It also detailed how Alahverdian died of Hodgin’s Lymphoma at 32 years old, leaving behind a wife and two young children who remained at his bedside as he died. Alahverdian’s death was a lie, an elaborate scheme created by Nicholas Rossi, a man charged with sexually assaulting a former girlfriend in Orem, Utah as well as multiple complaints against him in Rhode Island for alleged domestic violence.  David Rossi, the stepfather says at an early age Nicholas would hit his mother, grandmother, and siblings, and wouldn't listen in school. Alahverdian was placed in psychiatric care. Nicholas Alahverdian, using the name Rossi, was accused of assaulting a young woman he met at Sinclair Community College in Ohio. The two had lunch together.  Alahverdian offered to walk the co-ed to her next class. The coed claims Alahverdian then pinned her against a wall in a basement, groped her, and masturbated. Alahverdian apologized and asked the girl not to tell anybody. She made a police report and Alahverdian, aka Rossi, was convicted of public indecency and sexual imposition, and was required to register as a sex offender. Two years later, police are called to an apartment in Rhode Island.  Officers can hear arguing and screaming. When a woman comes to the door, she has marks on her face neck, and left eye and her right eye is swelling. The woman tells police she and Alahverdian were arguing and when she tried to leave he slapped her in the face. Police arrest Alahverdian who proclaims his innocence and begins banging his head on the bars in the back of the squad car. Officers have to use pepper spray to make him stop trying to hurt himself. Alahverdian pleads no-contest to domestic simple assault. Testing reveals Alahverdian's DNA is present in a rape case, and other allegations have already been lodged. Fraud charges also land in Alahverdian's lap, and this is when he fakes his death and heads overseas. The death of Nicholas Alahverdian is met with skepticism.  Alahverdian's foster mother Sharon Lane said she was contacted by Alahverdian's biological mother.   The minute Sharon Lane read the obituary, she believed it was written by Alahverdian himself. Utah authorities continued investigating the first rape allegation against Nicholas Alahverdian and issued a warrant for his arrest seven months after he supposedly died. An FBI search of Alahverdian’s iCloud account and cell phone records led investigators to Scotland. As investigations were looking for Nicholas Alahverdian and Nichols Rossi in the United States, a man named Arthur Knight was being treated for Covid-19 at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow.  He had been living a happy new life,  married a woman named Miranda, and worked as a tutor, but then he suffered a serious case of pneumonitis, caused by Covid-19. Someone recognized him through his distinctive tattoos. They were a match to those from a Pawtucket police booking photo of him.  In December 2021,  they arrested the convicted sex offender in the Glasgow hospital. Authorities say Knight was just one of Alahverdian’s 16 known aliases, which include Nicholas Rossi, Nicholas Brown, Arthur Brown, and Arthur Knight-Brown. Nicholas Alahverdian fought extradition back to the US.  For over two years, Alahverdian exhausted every legal avenue available in the UK. Ultimately the courts ruled he was a wanted fugitive and agreed to the United States’ request to send him home.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Greg Ahlgren  – International Attorney-at-Law at the US-MX Law Group, Ltd. & DRT Alliance/Diaz Reus International Law Firm Dr. Jeff Kieliszewski  - Forensic Psychologist, Author: " Dark Sides;" YouTube: Dr. Jeff Kieliszewski,  rv Brandt – Senior Inspector, US Marshals Service International Investigations Branch; Chief Inspector, DOJ Office of International Affairs, US Embassy Kingston, Jamaica; Author: “SOLO SHOT: CURSE OF THE BLUE STONE” – AVAILABLE ON AMAZON IN JANUARY; ALSO “FLYING SOLO: Top of the World;” Twitter: @JackSoloAuthor Brett Brown - Executive Director of SASS Go (Surviving Assault Standing Strong, a Nonprofit on a mission to eradicate abuse, trafficking, and violence against women and girls globally; @sassgoglobal on FB, Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok  Tim White - Investigative Reporter and Managing Editor for WPRI-TV (A CBS News affiliate), Co-Author: “The Last Good Heist: The Inside Story of The Biggest Single Payday in the Criminal History of the Northeast;" Adjunct Professor of Journalism at Roger Williams University in RI; X: @timwhiteRI, FB: Tim White-WPRI   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Ethan Crumbley Parents Want Evidence Thrown Out in Their Involuntary Manslaughter Trials

School shooter Ethan Crumbley opened fire in a Michigan school, killing four students. He pled guilty to all charges and is now serving life in prison. His parents, James and Jennifer Crumpley, are also charged with involuntary manslaughter. Prosecutors say they should have been aware of their son's mental health and should not have made it possible for him to have access to weapons.  The parents' trials are expected to begin later this month, but now Jennifer Crumbley has asked a judge to dismiss three witnesses who say their testimony could prejudice a jury. A judge has ruled, however, that two of the witnesses will be allowed to testify, with a narrow focus.  The jury will also be allowed to see surveillance video from the school.

DISGRACED JUDGE PULLS TRIGGER IN EXECUTION MURDERS

January 31, 2013, a 911 call comes in: the caller tells the operator that a man has been shot. Around 9 a.m., five shots were fired and seconds later, 3 more shots were fired. Police arrived at the crime scene swiftly and find the chief assistant district attorney for the Kaufman County Criminal District Attorney's Office Mark Hasse bleeding. No traces were left at the crime scene, not even a bullet casing. The only evidence is eyewitnesses. One witness said the shooter was completely dressed in black, and after firing the shots, jumped into the back seat of the white sedan and disappeared. Another witness,  according to Medium.com, said he heard Hasse shouting loudly “No, no, I’m sorry.” Hasse dies. Just two months after, Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse is gunned down. Kaufman County Criminal District Attorney Mike McLelland, and his wife, Cynthia McLelland, plan an Easter dinner for friends and family. Dallas police officer CJ Tomlinson is a family friend, and his mother is supposed to drop off vegetables for Cynthia McLelland to prepare for dinner. When she doesn't get the McLellands on the phone, she asks her son to check on the couple. Tomlinson and his stepfather go to the McLelland home. The front door is open and shell casings are on the entryway floor. Mike and Cynthia McLelland, both have been shot dead. One of the shots was directly into Cynthia McLelland's head. Tomlinson describes the scene as a "home invasion" style assault. Mark Hasse and Mark McLelland acted as prosecutors in former judge Eric Williams' felony theft Case. That history put him on the police radar. When officers checked his internet search history, they found that Williams had been actively searching for information on Mark Hasse and Mike McLelland. Documents were found on a white sedan, issued in a false name, and the login and password for an account that had been leaving anonymous messages for police about the murders were found, but there was not enough evidence to charge him with the murders.   Then came a break. An acquaintance of Eric Williams’ says that he had been asked to rent a garage in his name. Police find the white sedan in the garage, as well as police uniforms, badges,  weapons, and even homemade napalm.  There were also more than 30 guns,  but there was no weapon matching the one that shot the victims. And there was still one question to be answered: If the suspect jumped into the back seat to speed away from the crime scene, who was driving? Kim Williams was driving. She was Eric Williams' wife. She confesses to the police. The pair are convicted. Eric Williams gets the death penalty, which he has appealed repeatedly.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Judge Erleigh Wiley -  Kaufman County Criminal District Attorney (name appeared on Eric Williams' 'hit list');  Author of, “Target on My Back: A Prosecutor’s Terrifying Tale of Life on a Hit List”   Alan Bennett – Former Assistant District Attorney; Partner at Gunter, Bennett, and Anthes Caryn L.

Socialite Michelle Troconis Struts into Court, 'Was on Phone' as Lover Hid Wife's Bloody Clothes in 30 TRASHCANS

Jennifer Dulos and Fotis Dulos marry in 2004. Thirteen years later, the marriage fails, and the couple file for divorce. The circumstances are anything but amiable. Hundreds of motions are filed during the two-year proceedings. In 2017, Jennifer Dulos files for an emergency order for full custody of their five children. She alleges that her husband's behavior is "irrational, unsafe, bullying, threatening and controlling. She says she is afraid for not only her safety but the physical and emotional well-being of the children. Moving forward to the Friday before Memorial Day, Jennifer Dulos drops her children off at school near her New Canaan Connecticut home. She had an 11 a.m. appointment that morning, which she missed. No one hears from her for 10 hours. That night, Jennifer Dulos is reported missing by her family and friends, and the search begins. When investigators arrived at Jennifer Dulos’ home, blood stains were visible not only on the garage floor but garbage cans and a car parked in the garage. The car in the garage was not the Chevy Suburban the mom was known to drive. Police initiated a search for her vehicle. A little over an hour later and just three miles from the home, officers find the abandoned Suburban by Waveny Park. It contains blood evidence too. Back at the home, investigators determine that someone tried to clean the concrete floor. Officers canvas the park, hand out fliers, use canines, and do aerial searches. And most dramatically, perform video searches of local CCTV cameras. Surveillance cameras capture a man appearing to be Fotis Dulos disposing of garbage bags in as many as 30 receptacles in the area. A woman can be seen in the passenger seat of the man's car. Police recover clothes and household items with Jennifer Dulos' blood on it, in trash cans around Hartford. Specifically, the bags contained women’s clothing, plastic zip-ties, and a white T-shirt; all of the items were stained. Police also find a stained utility knife, a bath towel, and cleaning items such as a kitchen sponge. The woman in the vehicle with Fotis Dulos is identified as his live-in girlfriend Michelle Troconis. Police search warrants say Michelle Troconis identified photos of the surveillance videos as Fotis Dulos and admitted that she was the woman pictured. She confirmed multiple stops were made to discard bags, but she denies knowing what was in them. Fotis Dulos and Troconis, 44, are arrested, and charged with tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and hindering prosecution. They both pleaded not guilty.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Mark Sherman - Managing Partner of Mark Sherman Law,  Dr. Jeff Kieliszewski -Forensic Psychologist, Author: "Darksides;" YouTube: Dr. Jeff Kieliszewski Robin Dreeke – Behavior Expert & Retired FBI Special Agent / Chief of the FBI Counterintelligence Behavioral Analysis Program; Author: “Sizing People Up: A Veteran FBI Agents Manual for Behavior Prediction;” Twitter: @rdreek Dr. Kendall Crowns – Chief Medical Examiner Tarrant County (Ft Worth) and Lecturer: University of Texas Austin and Texas Christian University Medical School Jeff Gentry – Forensics-Crime Scene Investigator, Certified bloodstain pattern analyst and death investigator, fmr. toxicology lab analyst; Author: “A Visual Guide to Bloodstain Pattern Analysis: Bloodstain Pattern Analysis for Death and Crime Scene Investigators;” TikTok: @jeffreygentryBPA, Facebook: Jeff Gentry Bloodstain Pattern Analyst Jen Smith - Chief Reporter for DailyMail.com; Twitter: @jen_e_smith   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

IDAHO STUDENTS SLAY: SICK GHOULS EYE DEMOLISHED HOUSE FOR "SOUVENIRS?"

As Bryan Kohberger’s defense team tries again to get a judge to toss out the indictment against Kohberger, the home where the four murders took place is now gone. The clapboard house located at 1122 King Road, Moscow has been torn down, with the entire front of the building razed from sight in roughly 15 minutes. According to school officials, demolition was set for during the school's winter break, when fewer students would be in the area. It took just 90 minutes in total, for the home to become a pile of rubble. The debris, loaded up by two contractors, was taken to a secret area for disposal. The site was combed for not a single item to be left behind for the curious to find and keep as a macabre souvenir. One local who wished to remain anonymous said 'They want nothing left for ghouls to plunder.' Some, however, are still concerned that the best evidence in this case is now gone.  The home was scanned using 3D imaging to allow the jury to be brought into the home and take a virtual tour where they wouldn't have been able to go. The families of the four students killed in the house on King Road were not in agreement on the demolition. The Goncalves and Kernodle families issued a statement before the demolition, asking the university to wait to tear the building down until Kohberger's trial is completed. The Goncalves' family said through their attorney, that the house “has evidentiary and emotional value." In the statement, Goncalves wrote, "The family has stressed tirelessly to the Prosecution and the University of Idaho the importance (evidentiary and emotionally) that the King Road house carries but nobody seems to care enough." She adds that the “families' opinion isn't a priority.” The family of Ethan Chapin, who did not live there, offered its support for the demolition. In their statement, the Chapins said the demolition was needed  "for the good of the University, its students (including our own kids), and the community of Moscow."

Pregnant Woman Raped, HELD 5 YEARS IN PADLOCK GARAGE

A woman calls police saying that she has been held prisoner for five years, by a man who offered to help her at a time when she was panhandling. Police first made contact with her in April of 2023. Using the texting app TextNow, she called 911. According to KPRC, police rescued the woman from the garage. Reportedly, the approximately 30-year-old victim weighed about 70 pounds and according to officers, looked extremely malnourished and filthy. She stated she had not showered in two months. I Investigators went inside the garage and found a broken toilet, a dirty mattress covered in fresh vomit, a box of chips, a few Twinkies, clothes, and diapers. The woman told police there was no shower in the garage, so she would be taken inside the home from time to time. Police took the woman to the hospital for treatment, but reports say the man showed up and took her back to his home. The suspect has been identified as Lee Carter, a Houston rapper known as "The Viper." His 2008 song, “You’ll Cowards Don’t Even Smoke Crack,” garnered over 4 million views on YouTube. Reportedly he is also a real estate broker. According to corporate records and the Texas Real Estate Commission, he owns and operates a moving company in Houston. That company is registered to the address where he allegedly held the woman. Fox News reports a warrant was filed against Carter in April, but his arrest at a local motel did not happen until the last few days. Carter, 52, has been charged with aggravated kidnapping. Officials have not given a reason for the nine-month gap between the April incident and the arrest. It is unknown what happened with the victim's pregnancy while she was held captive.

DID GEORGE AND CINDY ANTHONY LIE?

June 16, 2008: the last day 2-year-old Caylee Anthony is seen alive. One month later, her grandmother Cindy Anthony franticly calls 911 to report her granddaughter is missing. Casey Anthony claims that a babysitter kidnapped her daughter. By October, when nothing Casey tells police turns out to be true, she is arrested and charged with Caylee's death, even though Caylee is still missing. On December 11, Caylee's remains are found in a garbage bag, dumped in a wooded area near the Anthony home. Eight days later, Caylee's death is ruled a homicide. Prosecutors announce they will seek the death penalty against her. At Casey Anthony's trial, her lawyer first made claims that George Anthony was molesting his daughter and that he staged Caylee's death to look like a drowning to cover up that he may have been abusing his granddaughter as well.  Those claims, made again after Casey Anthony is acquitted of the death, have haunted the Anthonys for years.  Now, George and Cindy Anthony agree to take a lie detector test in front of cameras for the A&E network special "Casey Anthony's Parents: The Lie Detector Test." What happened when he is asked if he had anything to do with Caylee's death?

Gypsy Rose Blanchard: Free

More than two years shy of her 10-year sentence, Gypsy Rose Blanchard is free. Blanchard was convicted of second-degree murder after she admitted to having her boyfriend, Nicholas Godejohn, kill her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard. Now she is out from behind bars at the Chillicothe Correctional Center.   Dee Dee Blanchard is believed to have suffered from Munchausen by proxy — which caused forcing her daughter to use a wheelchair and subjecting her to unnecessary medical treatments, all to foster attention to Dee Dee herself. Before the murder, Gypsy Rose Blanchard’s mother allegedly isolated her and tied her to a bed to stop her from escaping.     Gypsy Rose Blanchard is now married and picked up from prison by her husband. Her book, “Released: Conversations on the Eve of Freedom," is expected to come out on January 9.

CHRISTMAS MURDER-BY-FREEZER? Relatives Arrive For Holiday, Find DEAD WOMAN IN FREEZER

Around 11:45 a.m., two days before Christmas, a 911 call is made to the San Diego Police Department. Out-of-town visitors find a badly decomposed body inside a chest freezer. The case is turned over to the homicide unit. San Diego police say due to the frozen condition of the body, the only thing they can confirm is that the corpse is female.  During our broadcast, it's announced that the body has been identified as Mary Margaret Haxby-Jones. She would have been 81 years old at the time her remains were found. It's believed that she lived at the home at some point.  She may have been missing or dead for up to nine years.   SDPD says no missing report was ever filed for her. Police say the out-of-town visitors were not related to Haxby-Jones. Instead, they are related to someone currently living at the residence.  The Medical Examiner's Office is working to determine the cause of death. And again, the body did not have any obvious traumatic injuries.   Joining Nancy Grace Today: Daniel Horowitz – Trial Lawyer, Legal Commentator; FB: daniel.horowitz.140    Dr. Angela Arnold – Psychiatrist, Atlanta, GA; Expert in the Treatment of Pregnant/Postpartum Women; Former Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, Obstetrics and Gynecology: Emory University; Former Medical Director of The Psychiatric Ob-Gyn Clinic at Grady Memorial Hospital; Voted “My Buckhead’s Best Psychiatric Practice of 2022” Sean Patrick Farley - Former Law Enforcement, Licensed Private investigator (specializing in criminal defense), and Owner of Sean Patrick Investigations, with Services in San Fransico and San Diego Metro Area  Dr. Othon Mena – Forensic Pathologist (working as a medical examiner in Southern California) Alexis Tereszcuk - CrimeOnline.com Investigative Reporter, Writer/Fact Checker at Lead Stories; Twitter: @swimmie2009   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

TWO CHILDREN DEAD IN THEIR BEDS? The Curious Case of 35-year-old Mom, Kimberlee Singler

Just after midnight, Kimberlee Singler, 35, calls 911 to report a home break-in. She tells police that two of her children have been murdered. The police response report says Officers found "an adult female and an 11-year-old female who had sustained injuries," as well as a 9-year-old girl and 7-year-old boy who were "deceased at the scene." Singler’s third child, an 11-year-old daughter, was transported to a local hospital for treatment. She's hospitalized for a few days and then released. Singler is also treated for minor injuries. As police investigate the reported burglary, Singler works with officers, giving statements about what happened.  Then police determined the burglary report was unfounded, and presented evidence to obtain a warrant for Singler's arrest, but the mom is nowhere to be found. Since she was not a suspect, Singler was not under surveillance, and by the time she needed to be, she was gone. Police uncover an ongoing legal battle between the mom and her ex-husband Kevin Wentz.  Wentz’s attorneys say their contentious divorce and custody dispute has been going on for over five years.  Just three months ago, Kimberlee Singler filed a request for a temporary protection order in El Paso County. She claims Kevin Wentz waved a knife at her. Wentz denies the allegations. Two months later, in a different jurisdiction, a Larimer County court held a hearing on Singler's emergency motion to restrict parenting time over the same allegations about the knife. The court rescinded the order finding there was no imminent threat from Wentz. The court ordered that the children have additional time with their father, Kevin Wentz, around Thanksgiving and again from December 16 through December 31.  It was arranged for the child exchanges to take place at a police station in Colorado Springs and the Greely Police Station.  When Singler failed to show up with the children, Wentz's attorney filed an emergency motion to law enforcement for assistance to enforce parenting time. The Court granted the motion. Wentz was awarded custody. The Colorado Springs police investigation led to the charges against Kimberlee Singler. On December 26th, investigators established probable cause and obtained an arrest warrant for Kimberlee Singler on multiple charges, including 2 counts – Murder in the First Degree, Class One Felony,  1 count – Criminal Attempt – Murder in the First Degree Child Abuse, and Assault in the First Degree.  Details of the arrest warrant are currently sealed under court order and are expected to be unsealed at a later time. Singler was arrested in London and is fighting her extradition.

BOY, 5, FOLDED DEAD IN A SUITCASE, MOMMY STILL ON THE RUN

The mother of  5-year-old Georgia boy, Cairo Ammar Jordan, found dead in a suitcase in Indiana, is still on the run more than a year after the child was found.. His mother, Dejuane Ludie, accused in his death, is still at large.  Investigators say the little boy died from an electrolyte imbalance. The medical examiner says that the imbalance was most likely due to a “viral gastroenteritis” caused by excessive vomiting or diarrhea. Toxicology tests came back negative and the boy had no severe injuries. Police do not believe the boy was alive when he was placed inside the suitcase.  A mushroom hunter found the hardshell suitcase, which features the famous “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign. The boy's mother posted online that she believed the child was really a 100-year-old demon. Another suspect, 40-year-old Dawn Elaine Coleman of Shreveport, Louisiana, who had  been traveling with mother  Dejaune Ludie Anderson was arrested and convicted. She pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder in Cairo's death. She has been sentenced to 30 years in prison, with five years of that sentence suspended to probation.  TIPLINE:  Indiana State Police (888) 437-6432 (within Indiana) or Detective Matt Busick, Indiana State Police in Sellersburg (812) 248-4374 or (800) 872-6743 Joining Nancy Grace Today: Steve Kramer - Former FBI Attorney and Federal Prosecutor, President: Indago Solutions, Indago.ai, Led the team that identified the Golden State Killer, Co-Founder of the FBI's Forensic Genetic Genealogy (FGG) Program Dr. Thomas Plante - The Augustin Cardinal Bea, S.J., Professor of Psychology and Religious Studies, Santa Clara University; Adjunct Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine;  Editor, Spirituality in Clinical Practice;  Author: " Human Interaction with the Divine, the Sacred, and the Deceased: Psychological, Scientific, and Theological Perspectives."

Boating Accident or HOMICIDE? The Curious Case of Graham McCormick

Rand Hooper and Graham McCormick are both from the Richmond area. McCormick moved to Atlanta for a job but took time to return to Irvington to visit his friend, staying with him at his home. The next day, Sallie Graham gets a text from Hooper asking if she’s heard from her son, if not, then he is missing. Graham says her son was known for his responsibility, as signified by his fraternity nickname... Grahampa, a reference to maturity. Graham asks about a search to find McCormick, searching the water, checking with neighbors in town, and more. The answer: He's not there. McCormick’s mother, father and brother drive from their home as they learn McCormick was missing. Graham checks by the dock, where her son was last known to be, using an oar to poke and prod at the water.  From there, Graham knocks on neighbors’ doors, then returns to the Hoopers. Soon, a neighbor tells Sallie Graham, a body had been found. Graham McCormick’s body is found floating in Carter Creek off the Rappahannock River around 11:30 that morning, around two miles north of the Hooper’s home. The State Medical Examiner ruled that McCormick died from drowning,  blunt-force trauma a contributing factor in the death. Three days after the initial visit to the home,  Lancaster sheriff’s detectives spot damage to the Hooper family boat. The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries reconstructed a crash and determined the boat had been involved in an accident near where McCormick’s body was found. The investigation reveals that McCormick and Hooper spent the evening drinking, then took Hooper’s 1999 Boston Whaler boat out.   The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries concluded that the vessel struck a bulkhead jutting out of the water near where McCormick was found. Investigators believe McCormick was ejected from the boat. Police say it appeared that it had been slammed against the rocks, over and over again. McCormick had lacerations on the left side of his head and the back of his body, and blunt-force trauma. The medical examiner concluded that the injuries alone would not have killed the 31-year-old McCormick. Those injuries should have been survivable, she said.  However, McCormick’s blood alcohol level was 186. It would be three years before Rand Hooper would face additional charges in Graham McCormick’s death. Initially, Hooper was charged with a misdemeanor count of failing to make a timely report of the boat accident.   Those charges were upgraded to involuntary manslaughter with a proposed deal of just one year in prison, but a special prosecutor determined that more charges were appropriate as Hooper was accused of operating his boat while intoxicated, leading to a crash that killed McCormick. Hooper was arrested and charged with felony murder, involuntary manslaughter while under the influence operating a watercraft, and failure to stop and assist with serious injury or death.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Burke McCormick- Graham’s Father, Attorney  Gordon McCormick – Graham’s Brother; Twitter: @GhostofBPH  Catherine McCormick- Graham’s Sister  Dale Carson – High-profile Attorney (Jacksonville), Former FBI Agent & Former Police Officer (Miami-Dade County); Author: “Arrest-Proof Yourself” Dr. Jorey Krawczyn – Police Psychologist, Adjunct Faculty with Saint Leo University; Research Consultant with Blue Wall Institute, Author: Operation S.O.S. – Practical Recommendations to Help “Stop Officer Suicide”  Capt.

Austin Lee Edwards poses as a 17-year-old boy to talk online with a 15-year-old girl. He then drives across the country to her Riverside home when she stops responding. Edwards parks in a neighbor's driveway and goes inside the Winek home. Edwards kills the girl's mother and grandparents, sets the home on fire, and leaves with the girl. A neighbor calls police after noticing Edwards leading the girl, who "appeared distressed," into his car. Another neighbor also calls 911 after seeing flames coming from the home. When police arrive, Edwards and the girl are gone. Brooke, Sherie, and Mark Winek's bodies are found inside the home; Brooke Winek's other daughter is not home.

ANGEL-OF-DEATH-NURSE SECRETLY MURDERS PATIENTS ON NIGHT SHIFT

On August 31, a  Quality of Life staff member finds a 73-year-old male patient convulsing in his bed.  With no history of seizures and according to his medical chart,  he was given medication ten minutes before the seizures began.  The Post Gazette reports the man is rushed to Butler Hospital, where doctors discover hypoglycemia behind the seizures, but the patient is not diabetic.  Treating doctors believe the only way this patient's blood sugar could have plummeted to that extent is if someone had given him a massive dose of insulin. The attending physician is able to get the man stabilized and he recovers.About six weeks after the 73-year-old man ends up in the hospital after having seizures, another resident, a 55-year-old, is admitted to the hospital to be treated for a urinary tract infection. While in the hospital, nurses discover he too, is hypoglycemic. His blood sugar is stabilized. Nearly 4 weeks after leaving the hospital,  the 55-year-old male patient is back at Butler Memorial Hospital, his blood sugar so abnormally low that medical staff are suspicious. WTAE Reports Investigators say the man's pre-existing medical conditions would prevent him from administering the insulin himself, it would have to be done by someone else. Three hours later his 83-year-old suitemate at Quality of Life Services is admitted with the exact same symptoms, hypoglycemia. Both men ultimately die. While the initial investigation was sparked by suspicions of improper administration of insulin as the cause of the untimely deaths of two patients, coworkers sent the inquiry in in a co-workers direction, Heather Pressdee.    40-year-old Heather Pressdee now arrested and facing charges of homicide, attempted murder, aggravated assault, neglect of a care-dependent person and reckless endangerment in connection with the deaths of a 55--year-old man and an 83-year-old man, as well as the injury of a 73-year-old man.  The Attorney General has said 17 patients cared for by Pressdee,  died.    Joining Nancy Grace Today:   Rob N.

Honor Student, 13, Stabs Mom DEAD IN NECK, Next to Infant Daughter: CONFESSES

A shocked courtroom heard Derek Rosa tell police he stabbed his mother to death in her sleep as his baby sister slept next to her in the bed.  After hearing the teen's taped confession, Miami Dade Circuit Judge Richard Hersch rejected a defense motion to move Rosa out of the adult jail and into a juvenile facility.  The defense says it is unconstitutional to keep Rosa in an adult cell, claiming he is being kept in unsustainable conditions and is only allowed outside the cell for 20 hours a week.  After rejecting the motion, the judge orders Rosa to be held in the Miami-Dade Metro West Detention Center until his unscheduled trial begins.   Reportedly, the night Derek Rosa stabs his mother to death, he makes six Google searches including, “What is the best place to stab someone?”  " "Is a small knife good for killing?” “ "Is it easier to kill someone with a small knife?” “Can a knife cut through bone?” He also searched for an image of The Carotid Artery diagram.  The DailyMail reports the last search made that night was to inquire about a machine gun.  Derek Rosa claims in a police interview that his stepfather owns two guns and he planned to shoot himself after the stabbing but didn't go through with it.

WHY 'VITAMIN K' KILLED 'FRIENDS' STAR MATTHEW PERRY

Matthew Perry wrote about his issues with addiction to alcohol and drugs. In his memoir, he said he began drinking at 14 and was an alcoholic by 18. Perry first went to rehab and completed a 28-day program at the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation after a jet-ski accident led to an addiction to Vicodin. In his 2022 memoir, "Friends, Lovers, and the Big, Terrible Thing," Perry claimed to have been to rehab 15 times, detoxed 65 times, and spent about $7 to $9 million trying to get sober.     After years of addiction, Matthew Perry spent 5-months in the hospital after his colon burst from prolonged opioid abuse. Perry says he was in surgery for seven hours and in a coma for two weeks. Doctors told his family he had a 2% chance of survival. After leaving the hospital, Perry used a colostomy bag for months.   Two years after his near-death experience, Matthew Perry goes to a Rehab facility in Switzerland. He wrote that he faked pain symptoms to get Oxycontin during COVID. He was also getting daily Ketamine infusions. While at the facility, Perry needed to have surgery and was given propofol. When he woke up 11 hours later, he found out his heart had stopped for 5 minutes and during the long CPR process 8 of his ribs were broken. The doctor then refused more meds.   On October 28, Matthew Perry went to his country club to play a game of Pickleball with friends. Perry returned to his home after the game and was seen by his assistant, who was leaving the house to run errands. At 4 p.m., the assistant returned home and found Perry floating face down in the heated end of the pool.  Paramedics pulled Perry out of the pool and pronounced him dead at the scene. The DailyMail reports the actor died from an overdose of the "party drug ketamine."  Joining Nancy Grace Today:  Wendy Patrick – California Prosecutor, Author of “Why Bad Looks Good” and “Red Flags,” and Host of “Today with Dr. Wendy” on KCBQ in San Diego; Twitter: @WendyPatrickPHD Caryn L.

BLUE BLOOD LAWYER 'Accidentally' Shoots Wife Dead, Sells Her $350,000 Wardrobe, GETS NEW TRIAL

Tex McIver is a prominent Atlanta lawyer and Vice Chair of the State Elections Board; his wife, Diane, is a beautiful, incredibly successful businesswoman in her own right.  They have been married for 11 years, but on a September night, Tex McIver shoots his wife in the back, killing her. Diane McIver is shot inside a Ford Expedition she is riding in with her husband and a close family friend. They are returning home from their ranch in Putnam County late on Sunday night. Diane is in the front passenger seat, Tex is in the back seat. Dani Jo Carter is driving the SUV back from the Ranch to the Condo in Buckhead when the interstate traffic gets heavy and she takes an exit into Downtown Atlanta.  McIver tells the police it was a bad area and he asked his wife to hand him his gun. He said it was in the center console up front. Diane McIver hands Tex his gun. He later says they are out of danger before falling asleep. He wakes up when Dani Jo stops the car, and somehow the gun is fired.     As friends come to offer condolences on the passing of his wife, most expect to see Tex McIver upset, in shock that he accidentally shot his wife, the love of his life, and caused her death. Instead, they find a man who seems more concerned about money. Within two days of Diane's death, Tex is asking about his wife's Social Security benefits.  Then, Tex McIver seems to be investigating how to liquidate his late wife's assets. He organizes many of his wife's possessions to sell at an auction as part of an estate sale and says he was liquidating things to settle his wife's estate. McIver sold everything he could of his wife's clothing, jewelry, furs, hats, just about everything. The sale lasted several days. It was later revealed that he owed his wife nearly $350,000 which she loaned him for a barn he built on the ranch for guests on their estate Atlanta police eventually decided to charge Tex McIver with involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct in the shooting death of his wife. The charges seem to suggest that they believe Tex McIver's claim that the shooting was an accident. The day after a judge sends McIver to jail, he is indicted of malice murder, along with six other charges, including three counts of influencing a witness.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Clint Rucker - Award-winning Attorney, Municipal Court Judge, and Former Prosecutor in Fulton County; Defense Attorney at Garland Samuel & Loeb; Facebook & IG: @clintruckeresq     Dr. Bethany Marshall - Psychoanalyst; Instagram & TikTok: drbethanymarshall, Twitter: @DrBethanyLive; Appears in “Paris in Love” on Peacock  Christopher Byers – Former Police Chief Johns Creek Georgia, 25 years as Police Officer, now Private Investigator and Polygraph Examiner with Lancaster Information Services in Atlanta Dr. Michelle Dupre – Forensic Pathologist and former Medical Examiner, Author: “Homicide Investigation Field Guide” & “Investigating Child Abuse Field Guide”, Ret.

Judge Slams 'EMPIRE' Star's Appeal for Conviction of Faking Hate Crime on Self

Empire co-star Jussie Smollett gets released from jail while attorneys appeal his conviction for lying to police about a hate crime attack.  Smollett’s attorneys argued that he would complete the sentence by the time the process was completed. They also cited homophobic threats received by the actor in their request for emergency release.

Timid Honor Student Son Stabs Mom Dead, Dad Blows Kisses in Court

The 13-year-old Derek Rosa is caught on the family's nanny cam, standing over his sleeping mother moments before the honor student stabs her to death. His newborn sister is sleeping in a crib steps away.  Derek Rosa is not your typical 13-year-old boy: He is on the honor roll with neighbors saying he is exceedingly nice and the model son. Irena Garcia, 39, just gave birth to a baby girl. So it was shocking when the teen called 911, telling the dispatcher that he snuck into the room where his mom and the baby were sleeping and stabbed his mother dead.  As the operator talks to Rosa, he tells her he took pictures of the murder and sent them to a "friend." He also says he then deleted the photos. When pressed for the friend's name, Rosa says it is just somebody he knows online. During his call with 911, Rosa said he had a gun he planned to use to kill himself but decided not to.   Derek Rosa was taken into custody and transported to a juvenile detention center. He was then moved to Jackson Memorial Hospital after he threatened to harm himself. Rosa was initially charged with second-degree murder, but a Miami-Dade grand jury found enough probable cause to indict the teen as an adult and up the charge to first-degree murder. Rosa's defense attorney has put motions in front of the judge to move this case back to juvenile court.  Joining Nancy Grace today: Jason Oshins - Criminal & Civil Attorney  Dr. James Garbarino – Emeritus Professor of Psychology at Cornell University and Loyola University Chicago (specialized in studying what causes violence in children); Author of, “Listening to Killers: Lessons Learned from My 20 Years as a Psychological Expert Witness in Murder Cases” Master Sergeant Ron Livingston - Sergeant at Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (30+ years in law enforcement) Dr. Tim Gallagher - Medical Examiner State of Florida; Lecturer: University of Florida Medical School Forensic Medicine; Founder/Host: International Forensic Medicine Death Investigation Conference Caitlyn Becker - Senior Reporter for Dailymail.com; Twitter: @caitlynbecker   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Wealthy Lady Rancher DISAPPEARS from Cali Ranch: WHERE'S DIA?

Lydia "Dia" Abrams marries a wealthy La Jolla, California, real estate developer, Clem Abrams. They have two children. After more than 30 years of marriage, Clem Abrams passes away after a long illness and Dia steps up to run the 116-acre family ranch.  After years as a widow,  Abrams meets Keith Harper on a dating website. According to the Mercury News, Harper is a retired parole agent for the Utah Department of Corrections.  The two hit it off and six months later, Harper moves in with Dia at the ranch and becomes the ranch manager.   According to Harper, he works to upgrade the Abrams’ property:  building dams, bridges, and fences, and helping care for Abrams' animals. Harper also claims to be Abrams’ fiance. Keith Harper is also named as trustee of Abrams' estate, and her beneficiary in the event of her death. On June 6, 2020, Dia Abrams is seen at her ranch in Mountain Center, California. Then she is captured on doorbell-cam footage delivering cinnamon rolls to a neighbor undergoing cancer treatment. According to Keith Harper, he and Dia have lunch around 2:30 p.m. before he leaves to work around the property.  Abrams reportedly goes to tend to her horses at another property she owns in Garner Valley. Harper says he mows for five hours before returning to the house around 7:30 p.m.   Abrams’ Ford F-350 pickup is parked outside, but Harper cannot find her.  Harper says he calls her phone and hears it ringing upstairs. It is plugged into a charger next to a nightstand. Abrams’ purse and keys are also there. A search begins.  Dozens of locals scoured the ranch and surrounding mountain area on foot, horseback, and all-terrain vehicles. Harper is seen riding an ATV around the property. When Riverside County sheriff deputies begin a days-long search, Harper packs up his RV and takes off for Arizona. He says he needs to take care of a tax issue at a property he owns there.  Where is Dia?  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Brenda Geiger, J.D. -  Managing Attorney of Geiger Law Office, P.C.

GABBY PETITO FAMILY: LAUNDRIES KNEW OUR GIRL WAS DEAD.

Gabby Petito's parents have long believed that Chris and Roberta Laundrie knew Gabby was dead long before her body was found. In trying to prove it, Gabby's mother, Nichole Schmidt, and father, Joe Petito, have sued the Laundries and their attorney Steve Bertolino for intentional infliction of emotional distress. They are claiming that the trio was aware that Gabby Petito was dead but chose to do nothing.   In depositions for the upcoming civil trial, we learn two days after Brian Laundrie is believed to have killed Gabby Petito, he makes a frantic call to his parents. In the August 29, 2021, call, Laundrie tells his parents that Gabby is "gone" and he needs a lawyer. According to Petitio family attorney Pat Reilly, Chris and Roberta Laundrie did not admit to knowing Gabby was killed, only that they were told by Brian that she was "gone."  A retainer was sent to attorney Steve Bertolino six days later. Reilly, however, believes the family was told more than they are now admitting. Reilly has filed a motion to force Bertolino into revealing what Brian Laundrie told him.   Joining Nancy Grace Today: Patrick Reilly -  Attorney for Joseph Petito and Nichole Schmidt; Snyder and Reilly Trial Lawyers Caryn Stark – NYC Psychologist, Renowned TV and Radio Trauma Expert and Consultant; Twitter: @carynpsych, Instagram: carynpsych, and FB: Caryn Stark Private Practice Bill Garcia – Private Investigator: “Bill Garcia Investigative Services;'” Part of Search Team for Sherri Papini JoScott Morgan – Professor of Forensics: Jacksonville State University; Author, “Blood Beneath My Feet;” Host: “Body Bags with Joseph Scott Morgan;” Twitter: @JoScottForensic   Melissa Ratliff - ABC7 Sarasota's Digital Content Manager & Journalist; TikTok: @ABC7MySuncoast, Facebook: MelissaontheSuncoast  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Sara Jane Harris and Dr. James Michael Ryan meet at his dental practice in the Fall of 2020. By the Summer of 2021, Harris is not only working for the oral surgeon but also living with him. Sarah Harris’ family members began to notice a change in her physical appearance. The family says Harris did not look healthy, and in the following months, Harris' growing drug addiction became evident. What's more, the family believes Ryan was giving his girlfriend drugs from his practice. First responders rush to Ryan's home after an overdose call.

PHENOMENON: Why do Grown Women Pose as Teens, Attend High School?

Casey Garcia, 30, stands 4 feet 11 inches tall and weighs 105 pounds. She records herself as she changes her appearance to try and look like her 13-year-old daughter, then using her daughter's school ID, attempts to get into Ann M. Garcia-Enriquez Middle School.  During one of her classes, a teacher calls her by her daughter's name, Julie. Garcia makes it through the morning classes and goes to lunch where she takes more photos.  As Garcia walks into one of her last classes, another teacher asks for identification. Garcia gives her daughter's name. The teacher is suspicious, and when Garcia asks for help with topics the class has already covered, the teacher confronts her again. Garcia is caught and now admits that she is the mother of a student and that she is partaking in a "social experiment." The teacher asks Garcia to visit the principal's office. Garcia complies and tries to explain her goal to the principal before leaving the school. She says her goal is to prove that anyone can get into the middle school that her daughter attends and that security is seriously lacking.  Two days later, Casey Garcia uploads her video to YouTube. Then, police show up to arrest her. The 30-year-old parent is charged with criminal trespassing, as well as tampering with government records for allegedly forging her daughter's signature. In court, Casey Garcia confesses to entering the school, and the tampering with government records for allegedly forging her daughter's signature charge is dropped.  Garcia is found guilty of criminal trespassing. and sentenced to six months of probation in El Paso County criminal court.

Long Island Serial Killer Suspect Wife Gets "Million Dollar Deal" From Peacock

Rex Heuermann has been housed in the Suffolk County Correctional Facility since his July arrest for the deaths of three women.  Asa Ellerup, his estranged wife, filed for divorce six days later. Since then she has not visited Heuermann , until now. Bob Macedonia, Ellerup’s divorce attorney, confirmed  Asa Ellerup met with Rex Heuermann at the Suffolk County Jail. No word on how the meeting went or what was said. She has now also attended a court hearing for the accused Long Island Serial Killer. A crew for the Peacock network accompanied her after the family signed a deal worth at least 1 million dollars to take part in an upcoming documentary.  We've also learned that Heuermann has become a pen pal behind bars, writing to another serial killer, the "Happy Face Killer. In the early 90s Keith Jesperson, a long hall truck driver, killed many women. When someone else took credit for one of his murders, he started sending letters to the media and police with information only the killer would know. He put a "happy face" on each of his letters and was dubbed the Happy Face Killer.   The Daily Mail reports that Jesperson wrote a letter to Heuermann encouraging him to confess and offering some advice. Rex Heuermann reportedly writes back, thanking the Happy Face Killer for the advice and then complains about the food in jail and the exercise yard.      Joining Nancy Grace Today:  John Ray - Attorney for family of Shannan Gilbert, www.johnraylaw.net  Dr. Bethany Marshall  - Psychoanalyst www.drbethanymarshall.com/, Instagram & TikTok: drbethanymarshall, Twitter: @DrBethanyLive   Joseph Giacalone - Fmr.

Susan Smith Drowns Her Boys, HAS MULTIPLE LOVERS BEHIND BARS

After high school,  Susan Leigh Vaughan marries David Smith. They have two sons, but the children don't keep the marriage together.  The Smiths separated several times. During one of these separations, Susan Smith begins dating Tom Findlay, the single son of a wealthy mill owner.  Smith is planning a future with her new beau when she gets a Dear John letter from Findley. He explains that he doesn't want an instant family. On the night of October 25, Susan Smith knocks on the door of a house near John D Long Lake. She is hysterical when the man answers the door and tells him to call the police. She says an armed black man just carjacked her at a red light. Her two boys, 3-year-old Michael and 14-month-old Alex, are still in the car.  For days Susan Smith tells an ever-changing story of the carjacking. Then Susan Smith finally admits what she has done. There never was a hijacker. She went out for a drive with her sons buckled into their car seats in the back. Feeling desperate,  alone, and suicidal, she drove to John D. Long Lake and puts the car in neutral. She jumps out and watches the car sink. Scuba divers locate the vehicle with the boys in the back, still buckled into their seats. Since Susan Smith was convicted and jailed, tabloid news reports claim Smith told prison investigators that she had four sexual encounters with Lieutenant Houston Cagle, a supervisor at South Carolina's Women's Correctional Institution. Cagle admitted having sex with Smith and another prisoner. He was charged with the offenses in August 2000. The 50-year-old Cagle pleaded guilty and spent 3 months in jail. Captain Alfred Rowe also pleaded guilty to having sex with Smith and was sentenced to five years' probation.    Now Smith's relationship with men turns to pen pals. Several men have written to Smith over the years, with Smith looking to a life outside prison.   In March of 2022, People magazine gained access to letters Smith wrote to a long-distance boyfriend.  In one letter Smith wrote, "I can't wait to build a life with you, leave the past mistakes behind and start fresh, just you and me."  The Messenger has reportedly obtained transcripts of dozens of voice and text messages that Susan Smith traded with at least six men while serving her time in Prison. One man has gone so are as to build a fake life for Susan Smith and himself in the game the Sims also has a pet name for the convicted child killer, "Pookie."  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Tara Malek – Boise, ID, Attorney & Co-owner of Smith + Malek; Former State and Federal Prosecutor; Twitter: @smith_malek Dr. Bethany Marshall – Psychoanalyst (Beverly Hills, CA); Instagram & TikTok: drbethanymarshall; Twitter: @DrBethanyLive  Chris McDonough – Director At the Cold Case Foundation, Former Homicide Detective; Host of YouTube channel: “The Interview Room” JoScott Morgan – Professor of Forensics: Jacksonville State University; Author, “Blood Beneath My Feet;” Host: “Body Bags with Joseph Scott Morgan;" Twitter: @JoScottForensic  Dave Mack - CrimeOnline Investigative Reporter See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Poison Specialist's Wife Sudden Death, BY POISON

Betty and Connor Bowman have a lot in common when they marry.  Betty Bowman graduates from the University of Kansas School of Pharmacy with a Pharmaceutical Doctorate. She works as a hospital pharmacist while Connor Bowman gets his Internal Medicine Residency. Betty Bowman takes a position at the Mayo Clinic, so when she falls ill suddenly, the Mayo Clinic is the logical place for treatment.  It seems Betty Bowman is suffering from food poisoning, gastrointestinal distress, and dehydration. Her condition doesn't get any better.  She takes a turn for the worse, with heart problems, and fluid buildup in her lungs. Part of her colon is also removed after doctors discover necrotic tissue. Bowman dies from organ failure. Then the Southeast Minnesota Medical Examiner's Office alerts the Rochester Police Department to the suspicious nature of Betty Bowman's death. The Medical Examiner's office had to halt a cremation order.  According to court records, the Medical Examiner’s Office received a call from CGK- a female friend of the Bowman who said Betty and Connor Bowman were having marital issues and were talking about divorce following infidelity and a deteriorating relationship. In the Criminal Complaint, it is stated that Conner Bowman told the Medical Examiner’s Office that his wife should be cremated immediately, arguing that Betty Bowman did not want to be a cadaver.  Connor Bowman also began asking one of the medical examiner investigators if the toxicology analysis being completed would be more thorough than the analysis typically done at the hospital. Bowman wanted a list of what was specifically going to be tested for. Friends of Betty Bowman began reaching out to investigators. An adult female friend of Betty Bowman told the Rochester Police Department that she had texted Betty Bowman and that Bowman told her she was sick. The friend told the detective that Betty Bowman was normally a healthy person. Another friend said a text from Betty Bowman said she thought a smoothie she had the night before might have caused her illness. Detectives began looking at all options and found husband Connor Bowman had accessed Betty Bowman's patient account using his hospital credentials. From there he was able to locate internet searches conducted by Connor Bowman, a  Poison Specialist.  Connor Bowman was researching COLCHICINE,  a drug used to treat gout.  What's more, he was searching for information in determining what a lethal dose would be, by entering his wife's weight.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Dale Carson – High-profile Criminal Defense Attorney (Jacksonville), Former FBI Agent, and Former Police Officer (Miami-Dade County); Author: “Arrest-Proof Yourself;” Twitter: @DaleCarsonLaw  Caryn L.

Young Mom Murdered, Evil Love Rival WALKS FREE

Thanksgiving, 2018, Kelsey Berreth talks with her mother that morning and is then seen on video at a local grocery. Two days later, text messages from Berreth's phone were sent to Patrick Frazee, Berreth's fiance, her mother, and her boss, saying she was taking a few days off. After not hearing from her daughter in over a week, Cheryl Berreth asks the police to check on her daughter. Kelsey Berreth is missing.  The investigation into Berreth's disappearance goes on for a month before Patrick Frazee is arrested, and charged with murdering the woman he was supposed to marry. One of the breaks for police was information coming from Frazee's mistress Krystal Lee Kenney. She tells police that Frazee had asked her three times to kill Berreth and when she refused, he did it himself.  Frazee blindfolded Berreth on the pretense of a game of guessing the scent. He then bludgeoned her with a baseball bat, calling Kenney and telling her she had a mess to clean up.  She drives from her home in Idaho to Colorado to clean up the bloody crime scene. She tells police she accompanied Frazee to his nearby ranch, where she said he burned Berreth’s remains as well as her personal belongings. Frazee is convicted on all charges including first-degree murder, solicitation for murder, and tampering with a deceased human body. He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the murder charge, plus 156 years for the other convictions. His appeal was denied  Krystal Lee Kenney accepted a plea deal in exchange for her testimony against Frazee. She was sentenced to three years in prison. After Frazee's conviction, Kenney was sentenced to 18 months in prison for evidence tampering. She has now been released.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Eric Faddis - Partner at Varner Faddis Elite Legal, Former Felony Prosecutor and Current Criminal Defense and Civil Litigation Attorney; Instagram: @e_fad @varnerfaddis; TikTok: @varnerfaddis  Dr. Jorey L.

Anna Moriah Wilson was in Texas to race at a 150-mile Gravel Locas competition. She's bunking at the home of her friend, Caitlyn Cash. After an evening of swimming with fellow cyclist Colin Strickland, Wilson returns to Cash's home for the evening. When Cash arrives, however, she finds Wilson in a pool of blood in the bathroom. Wilson has been shot multiple times. Police find surveillance video of a black SUV seen outside near the time of Wilson's death. The SUV is tracked to Colin Strickland's girlfriend, Kaitlyn Armstrong.   Murder suspect Kaitlin Armstrong, on the run for a month, is busted in Costa Rica. U.S. Marshals say Armstrong was staying at a Santa Teresa beachside hostel, an area where yoga enthusiasts and surfers frequent. Armstrong also reportedly had a receipt on her for plastic surgery.

Teen Girl JILLIAN Shot Dead by CAREER CRIMINAL WALKING FREE

Jillian Ludwig kicks off her freshman year at Nashville's Belmont University in her first weeks by settling into a routine that includes putting her musical talents to work and enjoying the great outdoors. Ludwig is walking on the track in Edgehill Community Memorial Gardens Park at 2:30 p.m. when gunshots ring out from across the street. Jillian Ludwig is not the intended target, but she is hit in the head with a stray bullet. Nobody else is on the track, and Ludwig suffers for nearly an hour before she is found on the ground with a gunshot wound to the head. She is transported to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in very critical condition. As Jillian Ludwig fights for her life in Vanderbilt University Medical Center, police arrest 29-year-old Shaquille Taylor. Surveillance video and witness statements point to Taylor as the shooter. Video shows Ludwig falling as Taylor shoots at a car. He's charged with aggravated assault, evidence tampering, and failure to appear on a different felony charge.  Taylor is someone well-known to Nashville's law enforcement community. His record stretches back more than a decade. His latest arrest was on September 21. Taylor was driving a Ford F-150 pickup truck that had been carjacked by two men wearing ski masks on September 16.  Taylor did not admit to being involved in the carjacking in any way but he was charged with felony auto theft and was released on a bond.  Taylor was due in court just days before the shooting of Jillian Ludwig but he failed to show up. Despite multiple arrests, Taylor had been released from custody after three court-appointed psychologists deemed him incompetent to stand trial, and also found he didn't pose an imminent threat to himself or others. According to court records, Shaquille Taylor has an intellectual disability and language impairment,  With that determination, it means he isn't able to participate in a trial.  Joining Nancy Grace Today: Geri Wainwright -  Great Aunt of Jillian Ludwig  Eileen Bearisto Mahoney- Community member Matthew Mangino – Attorney, Former District Attorney (Lawrence County); Author: “The Executioner’s Toll: The Crimes, Arrests, Trials, Appeals, Last Meals, Final Words and Executions of 46 Persons in the United States;" Twitter: @MatthewTMangino Dr. Shari Schwartz– Forensic Psychologist (Specializing in Capital Mitigation and Victim Advocacy); Author: “Criminal Behavior” and “Where Law and Psychology Intersect: Issues in Legal Psychology;” Twitter: @TrialDoc Andy Kahan  - Director of Victim Services and Advocacy at Crime Stoppers of Houston Marissa Sulek - Reporter for WSMV; Instagram: @marissasulek, X: @marissa_sulek, Facebook: @Marissa Sulek WSMV  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Newborn Girl Found Stuffed in Wally World Trash Dumpster

Decatur, Alabama, police get a call for a welfare check on 36-year-old Cindy Crow.  WAFF reports a family member believed Crow to be eight months pregnant. Crow, however, looked like she had lost a lot of weight, overnight. The family member, a sister,  told police that she had seen Crow leaving her home, with a large, white trash bag in the back floorboard of her car.  In the home, bloody feminine products were found in the trash.  Police contacted Crow at work, where she agreed to go to the hospital to prove that she was not pregnant.  While waiting for the test results, Crow gave an officer consent to search her cell phone, where he found the app LIFE360. This allowed the detective to trace the route Cindy Crow took when she left her home with the white trash bag.  Using information garnered from the LIFE360 app, detectives found a location with a dumpster, Wally World Mini-Mart. Investigators searched inside the dumpster and found the trash bag containing the deceased body of a newborn baby girl. It was stuffed in the bottom of the dumpster under several other large bags of trash. Cindy Crow was arrested and so far is charged with abuse of a corpse.

MOM BLAMES DAUGHTER-IN-LAW for Grown Son's Stab Death on Florida Vacay

David and Cindy Rainey rent a cottage for the weekend along a canal in Suwanee, Florida, 140 miles from home. The couple's two adult sons, Bailey and Jack, plus a family friend,  join them for the weekend getaway. On Saturday, David walks away from the home and doesn’t come back.    Cindy and David Rainey reportedly got into an argument. David left, walking out of the house. He left his glasses, wallet, and cellphone behind in their rental home. The next morning,  David still hadn’t returned. Cindy calls the police. An extensive search ensues and continues throughout the day without success. It wasn't until early evening that same day, that deputies found David Rainey’s body submerged in the canal in the backyard of the rental house. He had been stabbed multiple times in the chest and was still in the same clothes he was last seen wearing. Police say the body was placed in the water after death. David Rainey's death was ruled a homicide. It’s been more than two years since David Rainey’s body was found submerged in water and stabbed to death. Police have no suspects in the murder, but that doesn’t mean they’ve not made an arrest. The Dixie County Sheriff's office says three of David Rainey’s family members have been arrested. David Rainey's wife and two sons are all charged with tampering with evidence, apparently related to the dumping of Rainey’s body in the canal after he was stabbed. Investigators with the Dixie County Sheriff’s Office traveled to Bunnell, Florida, and arrested Cindy Rainey and Bailey Rainey, then traveled to Orlando, Florida, and arrested Jack Rainey. Cindy Rainey, Bailey Rainey, and Jack Rainey are being held without bond. In Florida, tampering with evidence is counted as a third-degree felony, with penalties of up to 5 years in prison, or 5 years of probation and a $5,000 fine.  Police still have not released a suspect or a possible motive for Rainey's murder.
