4 'extremely dangerous' inmates on the loose after overpowering female guards at jail

by ABC News





Ohio authorities are searching for four inmates who escaped a jail after overpowering two female corrections officers.

They were armed with at least one homemade weapon, a shank, when they overpowered the officers and forced open a secured door at the Gallia County Jail in Gallipolis, Ohio, just after midnight on Sunday, authorities said.

The Gallia County Sheriff's Office identified the inmates as Brynn K. Martin, 40, Christopher M. Clemente, 24, Troy R. McDaniel Jr., 30, and Lawrence R. Lee III, 29.

They are considered "extremely dangerous," authorities said.

Investigators have determined that they received assistance from at least one person on the outside, according to the sheriff's office.


Once they gained access to the administrative wing of the jail, they stoles the keys to one of the corrections officer's vehicles and drove about a block away, where another vehicle was waiting for them, Gallia County Sheriff Matt Champlin told reporters at a press conference Sunday afternoon.

That vehicle has since been found in Pennsylvania, Champlin said.

Pennsylvania State Police tweeted that they have reason to believe that Clemente is in the area of the Westmoreland Mall in Greensburg.


The U.S. Marshals Service is offering a reward of $2,500 per inmate for information leading to their apprehension, Champlin said.

The female corrections officers were not injured during the escape, he said.

They were overseeing the male population because the two male corrections officers who were scheduled overnight called in sick.


The facility is short-staffed and unable to house inmates in individual cells due to the open-room layout that was designed in the 1980s to allow for more housing, Champlin said.

CLUELESS
by Minyvonne Burke




Stacey Dash was arrested in Florida on a domestic battery charge for pushing and slapping a man across the face following a "verbal argument,'' police said.

The actress, 52, was taken into custody Sunday by the Pasco Sheriff's Office in Land O' Lakes, about 25 miles north of Tampa.

Dash hit the man after they started arguing, according to the sheriff's office.

He had scratches on his upper left arm from being pushed, deputies said.

She was taken to a jail in Land O' Lakes without further incident.

Dash is best known for her role as Dionne Davenport in the 1995 teenage romance movie "Clueless."

In February 2018, the actress-turned-conservative political commentator filed paperwork to run for a congressional seat in Southern California but withdrew her bid a month later telling Cosmopolitan magazine that holding an elected office would be "detrimental to the health and well-being of my family."

"My goal was, and remains, to improve the lives of people who have been forgotten for decades by the Democratic Party," she said.

Dash worked as an on-air contributor at Fox News until 2016.

During her time as a paid contributor, Dash sparked widespread criticism when she said that there was no longer a need for award shows or television networks that honor the African American community.

Dash also thought Black History Month should be abolished because there isn't a white history month.

"Either we want to have segregation or integration," she said on "Fox & Friends" in 2016.

"And if we don't want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards, where you're awarded if you're Black. If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms."

Dash was also suspended for using a profanity on-air while discussing former President Barack Obama's views on terrorism.

CAPTURED!!!
by Robert Gearty





A dangerous convicted killer who escaped from an Arkansas prison -- his second break-out in 10 years -- was captured one day later on Tuesday after he was found hiding on the institution's roof.

Calvin Adams had escaped from his cell at the East Arkansas Regional Unit in Brickeys early Monday, prison officials said.

He later was spotted trying to hide under a large ventilation hood on the prison's roof Tuesday morning.

After the escape, officials said they believed Adams may not have left the prison grounds.

Arkansas Department of Corrections spokeswoman Dina Tyler said the roof had been Adams’ hideout since he vanished.

She said he managed to climb onto the roof but was stranded because there was nowhere else to go.

She said he will be moved to a maximum-security area of the prison.

Adams and another inmate broke out of another Arkansas prison 10 years ago in guard uniforms made in the facility.

They were captured four days later in New York.

Adams was serving a life sentence with no chance of parole.

He was found guilty of kidnapping bank executive Richard Austin, 25, from his home and then murdering him in a failed effort to rob the bank where Austin worked.

Austin’s pregnant wife survived being shot by Adams, walking more than a mile for help despite her injuries.

A Missouri white man set to be executed tonight
by Holly Yan




Missouri's governor has refused to stop what activists say would be "one of the most gruesome" executions in US history.

Russell Bucklew, 51, is scheduled to die by lethal injection at 6 p.m. (7 p.m. ET) Tuesday.

He was convicted of first-degree murder, kidnapping and first-degree burglary in 1997.

Gov. Mike Parson turned down a clemency request, said his press office, without providing additional detail.

Bucklew suffers from a rare blood vessel disorder called cavernous hemangioma.

The disease can cause tumors in the head and regular bleeding from the mouth, nose, eyes and ears.

An execution by lethal injection could cause prolonged suffocation and excruciating pain, Bucklew's attorneys have said.

Bucklew argued the state should consider death by lethal gas as an alternative.

In April, the Supreme Court ruled against Bucklew in a 5-4 decision, which means plans for the lethal injection can proceed.

Justice Neil Gorsuch said the Eighth Amendment "does not demand the avoidance of all risk of pain" in carrying out executions.

He also said Bucklew had failed to "present any evidence" that the substitution of lethal gas would "significantly reduce his risk of pain," Gorsuch said.

But the American Civil Liberties Union said executing Bucklew would violate the Constitution's prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment.
 
"What makes (Bucklew's) execution different is that he has a medical condition that would make it one of the most gruesome in U.S. history," the ACLU wrote.

It said Bucklew's tumors "will likely rupture during the lethal injection process, causing him to hemorrhage, choke, and suffocate in his own blood."

Bucklew has successfully staved off his execution in the past.

In 2014, the Supreme Court granted Bucklew a stay of execution, pending appeals.

Dr. Joel Zivot had filed an affidavit in the case saying that Bucklew's airway is so "severely compromised and obstructed," especially when he's lying flat, that it could easily be ruptured, raising the risk that Bucklew could choke or suffocate.

"If you touch it, it bleeds," Zivot wrote of Bucklew's airway.

But Gorsuch, the current Supreme Court judge who wrote the majority opinion against Bucklew's case this year, said justice must be served for Bucklew's victims.

"The people of Missouri, the surviving victims of Mr. Bucklew's crimes, and others like them deserve better," Gorsuch wrote.

Bucklew was convicted of fatally shooting his ex-girlfriend's presumed new boyfriend, Michael Sanders, and firing at Sanders' son before kidnapping Stephanie Ray Pruitt.

After raping his ex-girlfriend, court documents state, Bucklew was involved in a gunfight in which he and a Missouri state trooper were injured.

Additional arrests made in Hannah Bender murder case

by Tanner Flowers





Two teenagers have been arrested in Dawson County, charged with helping hide Hannah Bender's body.

Bender was the missing Lumpkin County woman whose body was believed to be found in a shallow grave in Forsyth County last week.

Isaac Huff, 18, was arrested Monday, September 30. Dylan Reid, 19, was arrested Tuesday, October 1.

Both were charged with concealing a dead body. Reid was also charged with tampering with evidence.

Police are still searching for Austin Stryker, the man believed to have killed Hannah Bender.

US Marshals are offering a $5,000 reward for any information that leads to Stryker's arrest.

Stryker was last seen in Clay County, West Virginia with Jerry Harper, 78, on September 23.

Harper was arrested in Dawson County last Friday.

‘I want to be a serial killer’
by David Borof





A 35-year-old man known as "Woo Woo" who is accused of three brutal murders in two states says he likes "killing people" and claims there are more victims.

Stanley Mossburg was captured early Tuesday in Florida after authorities say he killed a man and a woman in Winter Haven and one person in Greeneville, Tenn.

“This guy needs the death penalty if there’s ever been a person who needs the death penalty,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told reporters.

Investigators say Mossburg killed two people in a Polk County home and held a third person captive.

A surviving victim told authorities that Mossburg claimed to have killed eight people and that his goal was to reach 11 murders, according to Sheriff Judd.

He is also accused of killing a man in a laundromat in Tennessee earlier this month.

“I want to be a serial killer. I like killing people,” Mossburg told a captive, the sheriff said.

Judd cautioned that “there’s a lot we don’t know at this point.”

“We have not found two through six nor do we know if they exist at all,” Judd told reporters, referring to possible victims.

Mossburg told his captive on Monday that he would return to “deal with the bodies,” then fled in the female victim’s car.

He warned the captive not to call the cops or he would kill him.

The man would later call 911 from a neighbor’s home.

“Woo Woo,” as he is also apparently known, would return to the scene, and the stolen vehicle was spotted by alert deputies.

Mossburg would surrender early Tuesday, but not before forcing a standoff and firing shots at SWAT team members.

The suspect used a knife to kill his victims, according to the sheriff.

“This is a spree killer,” Judd told reporters Tuesday.

“This is a man that says he enjoys killing. When you kill people with a knife, it’s up close, it’s personal, its based in anger, revenge, evil. He didn’t shoot them from a distance. He was in stabbing and cutting, and all of the victims that we are aware of had multiple, multiple cut wounds as a result of this evil person.”

The Florida charges against Mossburg include two counts of first-degree murder and three counts of attempted murder of a law enforcement officer.

White man accused of killing woman, recording it on SD card charged in 2nd Alaska murder
by Phil Hesel





A man accused of killing a woman and recording it on an SD card later found in the street has been indicted in the murder of a second Alaskan woman, authorities announced Thursday.

Brian Smith, 48, was indicted by a grand jury Thursday in the murder of Veronica Abouchuk, whose remains were found in April outside Anchorage, the Alaska Law Department said.

Abouchuk, 52, had been reported missing in February, who had had last been seen her in July 2018, police said.

When Smith was interviewed after his arrest earlier this month in the September killing of 30-year-old Kathleen Henry, he “admitted to shooting another female victim between 2017 and 2018" and provided the location of her body, officials said.

Smith pleaded not guilty on Wednesday in Henry's death.

"We hope that these charges help bring some closure to folks for their missing loved ones,” Deputy District Attorney Brittany Dunlop told reporters at a news conference Thursday.

The law department said that Alaska State Troopers, who discovered the remains, found a skull with a gunshot wound from the area that Smith had identified.

The medical examiner’s office identified the remains on Oct. 11 as those of Abouchuk, Anchorage Police Chief Justin Doll said.

Both victims were Alaska native women, Dunlop said.

Henry's body was found near the Seward Highway on Oct. 2.

Smith, who is from South Africa, was arrested in the Henry's death after a person found an SD card in Anchorage's Fairview neighborhood on Sept. 30 that contained videos that appeared to show the murder of a woman, police said.

That memory card led police to arrest Smith as he arrived at Ted Stevens International Airport on Oct. 8, in part because police recognized his accent from a separate investigation, officials have said.

The SD card was titled "homicide at the midtown Marriott," according to charging documents reported by NBC affiliate KTUU of Anchorage.

The killing is believed to have occurred at the Marriot hotel on Sept. 4, the law department has said.

Video on the card showed a woman being strangled and a man telling her to die, the Associated Press has reported.

Doll said that police are continuing to investigate the case.

"We will look at every single aspect of the case and if necessary follow it wherever we need to,” he said Thursday.

Smith had been indicted on charges that include murder, sexual assault and tampering with evidence in the death of Henry, and a specification of torture was made that could lead to a mandatory minimum sentence of 99 years if he is convicted, Dunlop said.

A grand jury added charges of murder and tampering with evidence in the killing of Abouchuk, and the state also filed a charge of misconduct involving a corpse, she said.

Smith is expected to be arraigned on the charges stemming from Abouchuk's killing on Monday.

A woman who livestreamed crash that killed sister out of prison and arrested again
by Ryan Prior






In 2017, 18-year-old Obdulia Sanchez livestreamed a video as she was driving drunk during a crash that killed her younger sister.


She was convicted of vehicular manslaughter and served less than two years in prison.

She was released last month.

She was arrested again Thursday.

Sanchez, now 20, was arrested in Stockton, California, on weapons and traffic charges around 1:30 a.m., according to the Stockton Police Department.

She is being held in the San Joaquin County Jail, with multiple felony gun charges and court dates scheduled for Monday and Tuesday.

CNN has not been able to determine if she has a lawyer.

The San Joaquin Public Defender office told CNN an attorney will be appointed for Sanchez after those initial court dates.


Officers tried to pull Sanchez over for what they say was a vehicle code violation, but officers said she kept driving.



She led them on a "short vehicle pursuit," eventually driving her car off the roadway, Stockton Police said in a statement on their Fakebook page.


In July 2017, Sanchez had been livestreaming on Instagram when she crashed, and her 14-year-old sister, Jacqueline, was thrown from the car and killed, the California Highway Patrol said.

At the time, CNN chose to not show the video publicly due to its graphic nature.

In the recording, Sanchez is heard addressing her sister, "Jacqueline, please wake up."

That accident occurred near Los Banos, California, about 80 miles southeast of San Jose.

Sanchez was convicted of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and for endangering a child, and was sentenced to six years and four months behind bars, according to Ike Dodson, a spokesman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

But given time served and earned credits, she was released from prison last month after serving just over a year and a half.

After Sanchez drove off the road during the latest incident, a man also ran from the car and was able to escape, Stockton police said in their Fakebook post.

Police arrested Sanchez without a struggle.

When they searched her vehicle, they discovered a loaded gun, according to Officer Joe Silva.

Police say they're analyzing the handgun to determine whether it's been used in any crimes, and Silva said they're working to find the passenger who fled the scene.

Her father, Nicandro Sanchez, told CNN affiliate KTXL that he spoke to his daughter hours after her arrest at the San Joaquin County Jail.
 
Nicandro Sanchez said that his daughter's license is suspended.

"She (got) scared of the police," he said.

"That's why she ran."

He also said he didn't think the gun the police found was his daughter's, saying instead that he thought it belonged to male passenger who was with her.

Sanchez was charged with five felony weapons charges, including being a felon in possession of a firearm; evading a peace officer; five traffic violations and a parole violation.

Colorado mother accused of murdering daughter she said was terminally ill

by Keith Coffman





(DENVER, Co) - A Colorado mother who authorities said solicited donations, charitable services, and government aid for her purportedly terminally ill daughter who died in 2017 has been indicted on murder charges in the girl's death, court documents showed on Monday.

Kelly Renee Turner, 41, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her seven-year-old daughter, Olivia Gant, and with forgery, theft, child abuse and bilking Medicaid out of nearly $538,000, according to the indictment handed down in Douglas County District Court.

Turner, who is being held without bail, made her first court appearance on Monday. Colorado's Office of the Public Defender, which represents Turner, has a policy not to comment on its cases outside of court.

An arrest warrant affidavit accompanying the indictment said that investigators became suspicious of Turner a year ago after she claimed her other daughter, 12, had cancer.

"There is a concern that (Turner) has lied about the children's medical conditions and therefore may have caused harm to the children and or caused them to have significant medical procedures," the affidavit said.


"There is also concern that (Turner) has a financial and social motivation for her children’s medical conditions, both real and fictitious."

Court documents do not indicate how the girl died, but investigators noted that Turner withheld medical treatment and nourishment from her daughter in the final weeks of her life.

One of the girl's treating physicians told investigators that the girl was not terminally ill and that he was "shocked" when he learned that she had died, investigators said.

A condition known as Munchausen syndrome by proxy, in which a parent or caregiver fabricates illnesses or symptoms of a medical condition for a person to draw attention to themselves, was mentioned in the course of the Turner investigation.

However, Turner also broached the subject "spontaneously" in an interview with investigators, a detective said in the arrest affidavit.

"Turner said if she had anything to 'hide' she wouldn't be talking or signing medical record release forms," the affidavit said.


Turner is also accused of defrauding two charitable foundations that provide services to children with terminal illnesses, reaping more than $22,000 in cash donations from a GoFundMe account set up for her daughter and receiving benefits through Medicare.

If convicted of first-degree murder, Turner faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.

He has also appeared in “Gangs of New York” and “Legends of the Fall.”

An email to his representatives wasn’t immediately returned Tuesday.

Four flight attendants were arrested in Miami's airport after bringing in thousands in cash
by Jamiel Lynch




Four American Airlines flight attendants were arrested at the Miami International Airport and charged with money laundering after bringing large amounts of cash into the country, police said.

The airline says it's working with law enforcement on their investigation.

The flight attendants were going through a routine customs check Monday during the time of their arrest, according to a Miami-Dade police report.

One Customs and Border Patrol Agent was checking Carlos Alberto Munoz-Moyano, who had arrived on an incoming flight from Chile.

The agent asked him how much money he was carrying, and Munoz-Moyano said he had $100, the police report said.

He later changed his statement and said he had $9,000, according to the police report.


The agent alerted other agents, who found other attendants from the same fight carrying large amounts of money, the report said; none had a license to transport the cash.

The police report has redacted what the flight attendants admitted to when they were interviewed by a Homeland Security Agent.


Agents found $7,300 on flight attendant Miaria Delpilar Roman-Strick and $6,371 on Maria Isabel Wilson-Ossandon, the report said.


Police didn't allege whether the fourth flight attendant charged, Maria Beatriz Pasten-Cuzmar, had any money on her, and it's unclear what role they believed she played.

The four defendants were charged with money laundering by evading reporting requirements and being unauthorized money transmitters.


CNN has been unable to locate attorneys for the flight attendants.

It is not clear whether or how much money the other defendants reported bringing into the US. The total amount of money seized was $22,671.
