    Exactly a year after a couple was sexually assaulted at gunpoint at the Great Falls in Paterson, authorities announced that they’ve made an arrest. The man and woman were ambushed at the historic site when William Vazquez, 32, jumped from the bushes with a silver revolver in his hand and forced them into sex on Aug. 9, 2021, they said. The victims found a city police officer, but their assailant had fled, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Paterson Police Chief Ibrahim M. Baycora said in a joint announcement on Tuesday. Investigators found Vazquez’s car at the scene and interviewed both victims, the prosecutor and chief said. They didn’t explain why it took nearly a year to get the defendant charged and into custody. Vazquez remained held Tuesday in the Passaic County Jail, charged with various sex and weapons offenses, including first-degree aggravated sexual assault, as well as invasion of privacy.
    A BOMBSHELL breakthrough has been made in the mysterious case of 'The Gentleman' who was found in the North Sea with cast iron shoes. Scientists in Perth now believe the man, who was found by police off the coast of a group of German islands in 1994, actually spent most of his life in Australia. 5A new development has been made in the case of 'The Gentleman'Credit: Handout 5The man is believed to have been 45 to 50 years old when he diedCredit: Handout 5His body was weighed down cast iron cobbler’s feetCredit: Handout 5The man was wearing a striped wool tieCredit: Handout He got his nickname 'The Gentleman' after being found in a woolen tie, a long-sleeve blue dress shirt, British-made shoes and French-made trousers.

    Las Vegas’ Austin Walter celebrates his touchdown during the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game against Jacksonville at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton on Thursday, August 4, 2022.Raiders Vs Jags 9084 The Raiders beat the Jaguars in Friday night’s Hall of Fame game, 27-11. Which 3 long-shot players made a case to crack the Raiders 53-man roster? The NFL’s annual teaser, the Hall of Fame game, which preludes the longest five-week stretch of the year for football fans, was played Thursday night in Canton, Ohio. The preseason opener featured the Las Vegas Raiders and the Jacksonville Jaguars in a face off between two new head coaches, the 2022 first-overall draft pick, and two rosters that were all but completely overhauled in the offseason. Only so much excitement can really take place in the extra preseason game sprinkled into the schedule every year, so, to summarize, the Raiders second and third teams beat the stuffing out of the Jaguars backups, 27-11. There was, however, enough flash on the gridiron to build a case for three Raiders facing long...
    Mega-artist Jeff Koons, notorious for his slickly commercial, multi-million dollar artistic works as well as his high-profile collaborations with luxury brands, has been hit with a lawsuit filed by a set and prop designer. As Artnet News reported, the designer, Michael Hayden, is alleging that Koons violated his copyright via repurposing an original sculpture made in 1988 that depicts a giant snake coiled around a rock—designed so Cicciolina, Koons’ former wife, porn star, and the artist’s co-actor in Koons’ “Made in Heaven” series, “could perform sexually explicit scenes, both live and on camera.” court papers state. A judge just struck down Koons’ request to dismiss the case, though agreed—should Koons lose—that any damages would be limited to the three-year period prior to the lawsuit. Hayden claims Koons has gone on to incorporate the rock-serpent design into a lithograph, a painting and a sculpture without crediting Hayden; these Koons works have been exhibited all around the world. The Daily Beast reached out to Koons for comment. Hayden’s lawyers say that Koons is displaying these aforementioned artworks on...
    Ex-Gov. Eric Greitens, a Republican candidate for Senate in Missouri, is scheduled to testify next week in a child custody dispute with his ex-wife Sheena Greitens that includes abuse allegations just weeks before the state’s Aug. 2 primary. HOUSE AGAIN PASSES SWEEPING ABORTION RIGHTS BILL ON TRACK TO FAIL IN THE SENATE Attorneys for both Eric and Sheena Greitens will be able to question the former couple under oath during a closed-door hearing scheduled for Wednesday, according to the Kansas City Star. The former governor will likely face questions about domestic abuse allegations made by his ex-wife. Eric Greitens has sought to paint the allegations as fabricated by Washington Republicans and his ex-wife as a liar. Sheena Greitens made her allegations public in March, but documentation shows she made the same allegations of physical and emotional abuse against her and their children to a therapist and a lawyer in 2018. Eric Greitens previously resigned as governor following a scandal involving allegations of sexual misconduct, an extramarital affair, blackmail, and campaign finance violations. Several Missouri Republican...
    (CNN)Despite running as a staunchly anti-transgender and anti-abortion candidate, far-right Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake once posted in support of transgender youth and asked her followers about aborting fetuses who would be born with disabilities in social media posts from 2015 and 2016 reviewed by CNN's KFile.Lake, a former local news anchor running for Arizona governor who has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump, has strongly campaigned against abortion and transgender issues. She has attacked repeatedly "the transgender movement" and "woke gender activists." "A child's gender is determined by God at conception, NOT by some Woke Teacher in the 3rd grade,'' she wrote in one recent Twitter comment. "This insanity must end." She has also campaigned against abortion rights, saying, "I always have and always will fight for the unborn!" But in comments made on her Facebook page maintained as a news anchor in 2015, Lake offered a more supportive and sympathetic view of transgender people undergoing gender transition and praised a speech made by former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner.In the same post, Lake defended Jenner in the comments when...
    A Columbus man has been charged in relation to the viral story of a pregnant 10-year-old girl who had to travel from Ohio to Indiana for an abortion. According to the Columbus Dispatch, 27-year-old Gershon Fuentes has been charged with one count of rape involving the 10-year-old victim. Fuentes allegedly confessed and turned himself in to authorities as the child’s rapist on July 6. He admitted to raping the child on at least two occasions.  According to the Dispatch, Columbus police officials were made aware of the girl's pregnancy through a referral by Franklin County Children Services made by her mother on June 22. A detective then testified at Fuentes’ arraignment that the victim underwent a medical abortion on June 30. Court records indicate that Fuentes appeared in court Wednesday and was given a $2 million bond. Officials also testified that DNA from the clinic in Indianapolis is being tested against samples from Fuentes, as well as the child's siblings, to confirm his paternity. Both the criminal charges and testimony from the Columbus detective confirm that the viral story is true, even though its legitimacy was...
    Share this: Disgraced R&B superstar R. Kelly was sentenced Wednesday to 30 years in prison for using his fame to sexually abuse young fans, including some who were just children, in a systematic scheme that went on for decades. Through tears and anger, several of Kelly’s accusers told a court, and the singer himself, that he had preyed on them and misled his fans. “You made me do things that broke my spirit. I literally wished I would die because of how low you made me feel,” said one unnamed survivor, directly addressing a Kelly who kept his hands folded and his eyes downcast.
    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Swedish prosecutors on Wednesday appealed a sentence given to an Italian surgeon who was put on trial for causing bodily harm during experimental stem-cell windpipe transplants on three patients who died. Stem-cell scientist Dr. Paolo Macchiarini made headlines in 2011 for carrying out the world’s first stem-cell windpipe transplants at Sweden’s leading hospital. Once considered a leading figure in regenerative medicine, Macchiarini was credited with creating the world’s first windpipe partially made from a patient’s own stem cells. Macchiarini was fired from the Karolinska Institute in March 2016 for breaching medical ethics after being accused of falsifying his resume and misrepresenting his work. In December 2018, Sweden decided to reopen a previously discontinued investigation into three cases. He was alleged to have operated inappropriately on three people between 2011 and 2014 who later died, but Maccharini was not accused of killing the patients. He denied any criminal wrongdoing. On June 16, the Solna District Court cleared him of of two charges of assault and gave him a suspended sentence in the third case. He...

    STOCKHOLM (AP) — An Italian surgeon who made headlines in 2011 for carrying out the world’s first stem-cell windpipe transplants at Sweden’s leading hospital was given a conditional sentence Thursday for causing bodily harm to a patient. He was acquitted of two other charges. Stem-cell scientist Dr. Paolo Macchiarini was once considered a leading figure in regenerative medicine and is credited with creating the world’s first windpipe partially made from a patient’s own stem cells. He was alleged to have operated inappropriately on three people between 2011 and 2014. He denied any criminal wrongdoing. Macchiarini risked five years in prison if the Solna District Court had followed the prosecutor’s request. “We have judged that these interventions have not taken place in accordance with science and proven experience. On the other hand, we believe that two of the interventions have nevertheless been regarded as justifiable, but not the third,” judge Björn Skaensberg said, cited by the Swedish public broadcaster SVT. In December 2018, Sweden decided to reopen a previously discontinued investigation into the three cases. Additional written evidence was...
    (CNN)When a police officer fatally shoots a black man, the legal system often sides with the cop. Some officers never get charged. It's even more rare for officers to get convicted. So when Dallas jurors convicted Amber Guyger of murder -- not a lesser charge of manslaughter -- jaws dropped across the country. Police shootings: Trials, convictions are rare for officers "I, for one, was not expecting a white police officer to be convicted on the more serious charge for killing a black man, however bizarre the circumstances," CNN Opinion contributor Jill Filipovic wrote. "What this guilty verdict may at least show is there are some lines even white police officers can't cross when killing unarmed black people." But prosecutors didn't focus on race during the trial. Read MoreSo how did they secure this rare conviction in a police-involved shooting? Jurors haven't spoken publicly yet. But prosecutors highlighted several unique elements in making their case. Details of the case were just too bizarreMany observers had a hard time believing Guyger made a reasonable mistake when she went to Botham Jean's...
    Getty Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be Barca's No. 9 next season. Barcelona have made Robert Lewandowski their top summer transfer target but are looking at other No. 9 options in case they are unable to lure the striker away from Bayern Munich. Villarreal attacker Gerard Moreno has emerged as one possible alternative, as reported by Jordi Gil at Diario Sport. Moreno ticks a lot of boxes for coach Xavi as he is considered a “top striker” who “can make a difference” in attack. The 30-year-old scored nine goals and contributed three assists in 17 La Liga appearances last season. Moreno also netted twice and bagged four assists as Villarreal made it all the way to the semi-finals of the Champions League. Villarreal have Moreno under contract until 2027 with a release clause set at €100 million but would be “willing to negotiate” and could sell for around €40m. Barca were planning to invest a similar amount in Lewandowski but must agree a fee with Bayern first. Moreno’s name “is on the table” for Barcelona currently but the Catalans will...
    Q: Ira, I’m disappointed. Pat Riley had every opportunity Monday to send a message to Donovan Mitchell, just like he did to LeBron James, and didn’t. He didn’t have to use his name, he could have just said, “We could use a 6-1 guard from the Western Conference who Dwyane Wade has worked with.” – Franklin. A: Considering the NBA’s sensitivity to tampering, and considering the Heat are in danger of being in recidivist territory after being docked a second-round pick in the upcoming draft after their haste in landing Kyle Lowry last summer, I’m not sure sending messages any longer is a Pat Riley priority. In fact, with Donovan Mitchell under contract to the Jazz for another three seasons, it’s not as if the Heat are in position to force Utah’s hand. Until Donovan sends a clear signal that he wants to be moved (if he wants to be moved), I don’t think you overplay your hand. First, that could adversely affect those you might toss into a deal, in case a deal isn’t made. And it also would...
    JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — A judge has thrown out statements that a 77-year-old Minnesota man charged in the stabbing death of a 15-year-old suburban Chicago girl nearly half a century ago made to police and to his wife. Will County Judge David Carlson on Wednesday granted two defense motions tossing out statements that Barry Whelpley of Mounds View, Minnesota, made to police when they searched his home and a conversation between Whelpley and his wife that police recorded. Police arrested Whelpley in June last year. “It’s significant to the defense. And it’s a significant loss to the prosecution,” Whelpley’s defense attorney, Terry Ekl, told the Arlington Heights Daily Herald. Whelpley is charged with first-degree murder and aggravated criminal sexual assault for the 1972 death of Julie Ann Hanson. The 15-year-old Naperville girl disappeared on July 7, 1972, while riding her bicycle. Her body was discovered a day later in a field. She had been stabbed 36 times, coroners said. In his motions, Ekl argued that Whelpley was not advised of his Miranda rights during the search of his Minnesota home...
    A former business associate of Rodney Joffe launched a Trump-Russia data-mining project in 2016 at the direction of the technology executive, a task the witness said made him feel “extremely uncomfortable” because it felt like “opposition research.” Jared Novick, formerly the CEO of BitVoyant in 2016, provided new details about Joffe, known as “Technology Executive-1” in special counsel John Durham’s indictment of Democratic cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussmann, and about Joffe’s efforts to use his perch in the cybersecurity world to snoop on associates of then-candidate Donald Trump. Novick said he dubbed the Joffe-directed project “Crimson Rhino” because the “last thing I wanted was Donald Trump’s name” displayed around the office. HILLARY CLINTON SIGNED OFF ON PUSHING DEBUNKED ALFA-BANK CLAIMS Sussmann has been charged with concealing his two clients, former Neustar chief technology officer Joffe and Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign, from FBI General Counsel James Baker when he pushed debunked allegations of a secret line of communication between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa-Bank during a September 2016 meeting. Novick said in August 2016 that...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Cardinal Sean O’Malley on Friday weighed in on the raging abortion rights debate in the country for the first time since the leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion that could possibly overturn Roe v. Wade. The leader of the Boston Archdiocese said the church has worked, prayed and advocated for 50 years for the overturning of the “very flawed decision.” “The case we have made to our religiously pluralistic nation is that abortion is fundamentally a human rights question,” O’Malley said. “We have tried to make that case and will continue to do so whatever the final decision of the Court will be.” He went on to say “A pro-life position does not end at birth; it must extend to a public vision which encompasses the common good of our society,” and called for both sides to “respect the dignity of others.” Read O’Malley’s full statement below, via his blog: “The leak of Justice Alito’s draft opinion on abortion has brought many voices into a conflicted question now almost fifty years old. Throughout those years, from...

The woman made the request during his court appearance Friday, a day after he was arrested for allegedly locking some of her and their baby’s belongings in his car.

    STOCKHOLM (AP) — An Italian surgeon who made headlines in 2011 for carrying out the world’s first stem-cell windpipe transplants at Sweden’s leading hospital went on trial Wednesday accused of aggravated assault against three of his patients. Stem-cell scientist Dr. Paolo Macchiarini, who was once considered a leading figure in regenerative medicine, is credited with creating the world’s first windpipe partially made from a patient’s own stem cells. In December 2018, Sweden decided to reopen a previously discontinued investigation into three cases. Additional written evidence was obtained, and more interviews were held with individuals in Sweden, Belgium, Britain, the United States and Spain. The former surgeon appeared at the Solna District Court Wednesday but is first expected to be a witness Friday. His defense lawyer, Björn Hurtig, believes Macchiarini’s former employer, Sweden’s prestigious Karolinska Institute, should be held responsible, Swedish broadcaster SVT said. Macchiarini was fired from Karolinska Institute in March 2016 for breaching medical ethics after being accused of falsifying his resume and misrepresenting his work. When Macchiarini’s first windpipe transplant was reported in the medical journal Lancet in...

    Convicted German rapist Christian Brueckner has been made an 'official suspect' in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. Brueckner, 44, was sensationally named by German prosecutors as the man 'responsible' for Madeleine's kidnap and murder in June 2020. But since then no charges have been brought. However today respected German daily Bild claimed he has had been made an 'arguido' or official suspect in the case by Portugal which is usually the precursor to charges. Speaking to MailOnline late on Thursday, Brueckner's lawyer categorically denied reports his client had been charged over the disappearance.  Without naming Brueckner, news agency AFP claimed on Thursday evening German authorities had charged 'a suspect' at the request of the Portuguese prosecutor. An 'arguido' - normally translated as 'named suspect' or 'formal suspect' - is someone who is treated by Portuguese police as more than a witness but has not been arrested or charged.  Police in Portugal are thought to have acted in the last few days after it emerged that he could avoid charges due to Portugal's statute of limitations which kicks in for serious crimes...
    KNIGHTS LANDING (CBS13) – A total of eight men have been arrested after an investigation into a large suspected sturgeon poaching operation along Sacramento Valley waterways. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife says the investigation started as two separate cases, but a connection between the suspects led them to uncovering the larger operation. READ MORE: Heavy Snow, Rain Starts Hitting Northern CaliforniaWildlife officers started investigating back in May 2021. Two men – 31-year-old Andrew Chao and 35-year-old Ay Pou Saechao – were suspected of catching sturgeon, them selling them to another group, four members of the Petryanik family. That incident has already led to poaching charges against Chao and the Petryanik family. However, officials say they started investigating Chao and Saechao again in January 2022 for another alleged poaching incident of sturgeon from the Sacramento River near Knights Landing. In this incident, wildlife officers say they found a live 85.5” white sturgeon in Chao’s vehicle that they were able to return to the water.

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A federal judge on Thursday ruled against all three motions made by Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby’s defense, which included motions to dismiss her indictment and to remove a certain prosecutor from the case. A grand jury indicted Mosby in January on four felony counts including charges of perjury and making false statements. Federal prosecutors allege she lied about suffering COVID-19 hardships to withdraw money without penalty from her retirement account and falsified information on loan applications for vacation homes in Florida.

    A South Jersey man is accused of sexually assaulting a woman who was found dead on Memorial Day Weekend in Wildwood three decades ago. The case dates back to 1990, when a 20-year-old Susan Negersmith, of Carmel (Putnam County) NY, was spending the weekend with friends in Wildwood, authorities said.  Using a DNA match, police arrested Jerry Rosado, now 62, of Millville, according to Cape May County Prosecutor Jeffrey H.

    (CNN) — FBI agents raided a residence in Metro Detroit last Friday in connection to threats made to the judge, two defense attorneys and at least one potential witness in the ongoing federal trial of four men accused of plotting to kidnap Michigan Gov.

    NAPA (KPIX 5) – Gov. Gavin Newsom was back in the Bay Area on Thursday, trying to build support for his plan to reform California’s approach to homelessness and mental health. The governor’s latest roundtable was held on the grounds of Napa State Hospital, and the site’s history was mentioned more than a few times as the case was made for a new approach. READ MORE: Federal Lawsuit Filed Against Alameda County Over Suicide At Santa Rita Jail“Fifty-five years ago, the state of California made a well-intended public policy decision to reduce the population of the state hospitals that house people with severe mental illness,” said Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg. For decades now, California has wrestled with the aftermath of those decisions and while there is debate on how to correct course, there is some broad agreement. “What we’re doing today as we are arresting those folks as they drift in conditions of unsheltered homelessness and untreated psychotic symptoms,” said Katherine Warburton with California Department of State Hospitals.

    A federal judge has found sufficient evidence to name Sarah Lawrence 'cult leader' Larry Ray's daughter, Talia, as a co-conspirator along with his so-called lieutenant and co-accused Isabella Pollok, DailyMail.com can reveal. Pollok is due to stand trial on multiple counts later this year. Talia, 29, remains unindicted and it will be for the government to decide whether to bring charges. Judge Lewis Liman made his finding Thursday morning ahead of continued testimony from alleged cult member, Claudia Drury, 31. Drury's testimony, which began last Friday, has been repeatedly interrupted due to both juror issues and an apparent seizure on the part of the defendant which saw court suspended Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday. Today Drury concluded her direct testimony detailing the life of prostitution into which she claims Ray forced her.

    Parts of some documents in the Duke of Sussex's claim against the Home Office will be kept secret, a High Court judge ruled as he criticised Harry's legal team for an 'entirely unacceptable' breach of court rules. Harry is bringing a claim against the department after being told he would no longer be given the 'same degree' of personal protective security when visiting from the US, despite offering to pay for it himself. The duke wants to bring his children to visit from the US, but he and his family are 'unable to return to his home' because it is too dangerous, a representative previously said. He is challenging the February 2020 decision of the Executive Committee for the Protection of Royalty and Public Figures - known as Ravec - which has delegated powers from the Home Secretary. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are pictured together in Brixton, south London in 2018 At a preliminary hearing last month, the High Court in London heard an application by both sides for some parts of the court documents in the case to...
    (CNN)Four years ago, French President Emmanuel Macron, newly arrived in office, proposed a European Defense Force -- a counterweight to a NATO alliance he and increasingly other EU leaders feared was being effectively held hostage by the United States and especially Donald Trump. The result at the time was a rupture between Trump and Macron, followed by the French leader's rapprochement with then-German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Still, Macron's idea went no further. Until now. David AndelmanOn Thursday, it will come to fruition. With Macron in the driver's seat as France holds the rotating presidency of the European Union, the vehicle is called the "Strategic Compass." This blueprint for Europe's security strategy, ratified Monday by the bloc's defense ministers, sets out a context and concept in the strongest, even belligerent language. "We are adopting this," the report begins, "at a time when we witness the return of war in Europe" -- with these words boldfaced.It continues by warning that: "Russia's war of aggression constitutes a tectonic shift in European history. The EU is more united than ever in the face of...
    RIDLEY TOWNSHIP, Pa. (CBS) — Human remains were recovered from a submerged car near a Ridley Township Marina. The discovery could help solve a missing person case from 2003. The group that made the discovery has only been working on the case for about six months. They say they were prepared to search the Delaware river until their efforts led them to the Darby Creek.

    LONDON (AP) — A juror in Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex abuse trial made an “honest mistake” when he failed to disclose his own history as a victim of abuse and the error didn’t prevent her from receiving a fair trial, prosecutors said in a court filing. U.S. federal prosecutors made the argument in a document filed late Tuesday opposing Maxwell’s motion for a new trial. Maxwell, 60, was convicted in December of helping the late financier Jeffrey Epstein sexually abuse multiple teenage girls from 1994 to 2004. The filing comes a week after U.S. District Judge Alison J. Nathan questioned the juror extensively about why he failed to disclose the abuse he suffered as a child when he filled out a questionnaire during the jury selection process. The juror, known as Juror 50, later gave a series of media interviews in which he revealed the abuse and how it influenced his deliberations. In response to Nathan’s questions, the juror said he made the mistake because he was rushed and didn’t carefully read some of the questions. He also said that...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Federal prosecutors on Friday filed a searing response to Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby’s request to dismiss federal charges against her, calling her position “meritless” and her arguments “disingenuous.” A grand jury indicted Mosby in January on four felony counts including charges of perjury and making false statements. Federal prosecutors allege she lied about suffering COVID-19 hardships to withdraw money without penalty from her retirement account and falsified information on loan applications for vacation homes in Florida. READ MORE: 'Safe And Sound': Baltimore Man Rescues Grandmother From UkraineMosby has maintained her innocence and insists she is the target of Assistant U.S. Attorney Leo Wise — who made donations to Mosby’s top challengers in the 2018 election cycle — and former acting U.S. Attorney Stephen Schenning. Mosby’s lawyers have described the case as the “culmination of a long-running crusade to ruin the political career of a young, progressive, Black, female elected official, led by a prosecutor who has repeatedly made financial contributions to the campaigns of her political opponents.” Prosecutors in the filing ridiculed the idea that...
    Those mourning the loss of Preston Hylan Morehouse finally have some peace: Police in Maryland think they know who killed him. Ryan Joseph Ellis, 32, was indicted on first- and second-degree murder charges in the January 2010 slaying of Preston Hylan Morehouse, 20, Maryland State Police said. Morehouse, of Melbourne, Florida, was shot inside the front door of his home on the 27200 block of Ocean Gateway in Hebron, at 4:30 a.m. on Jan. 17, 2010, authorities said. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Morehouse's death has remained a mystery, sparking discussion on Reddit boards and in Facebook groups.  "Some say he was set up by his friends and they hid downstairs until the job was finished, other say it was mistaken identity and the bullet was meant for his friend," one person wrote on Reddit. "Some say his past caught up to him but his family and friends says he was a good person and wasn't a thug."  There was also another theory that was killed because he was dealing with a married woman and had death threats sent to...

    One of the lead investigators looking into the disappearance of Suzanne Morphew has said the arrest of her husband for her murder was 'premature,' according to newly-filed court documents. Suzanne's husband Barry, 53, was arrested last May on suspicion of murder following a year-long search for his wife, Suzanne, 49, who disappeared from their home on Mother's Day 2020. Her body has never been found, but police say she is most likely dead because she has not been heard from since then.  Barry denies the charges, and has submitted court documents to dismiss the case for 'outrageous governmental conduct,' claiming that former Colorado Bureau of Investigation Agent Joseph Cahill himself had said that Barry's was 'premature' just four months ago, in December 2021.  The defense attorneys write in the court documents, obtained by 9 News, that Cahill 'stated the case was not remotely ready for anybody to move the case forward' when he was being interviewed by Internal Affairs on December 2 for accidentally firing his weapon while he was off-duty and at home. They also claim in the documents, which were unsealed...
    MARCUS HOOK, Pa. (CBS) — The murder of an 18-year-old Delaware County woman captured headlines in the early 1980s, but the case had gone cold — until now. Denise Pierson never came home the night of April 14, 1981. READ MORE: 2 Killed In Fiery Small Plane Crash In Residential Neighborhood In PerkasieThe 18-year-old teen from Marcus Hook was last seen with a group of guys. Family, including Pierson’s mother, became deeply worried. “She initially went with Peter Horn and others to Delaware with the purpose to purchase drugs,” Delaware County Assistant District Attorney Geoff Paine said. Remember the name, Peter Horn. Prosecutors would later conclude Horn was a co-conspirator in her murder. Meanwhile, for Pierson, she wanted to get home. Investigators say over the hours, Pierson developed a sixth sense, feeling she should no longer be with this group of guys. But for her, it was too late. “She attempted to leave and was not allowed to leave,” Paine said. “She was physically restrained from leaving.” Inside a home owned by Horn that was torn down years ago, Pierson...
    Embattled Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón's staffers say he was shamed into changing his stance on 'outlier' juvenile sentencing because of a bombshell report that suggested one of the criminals he advocated for had little remorse. He flip-flopped on his famously reformative approach to justice last week after jailhouse audio recordings obtained by Fox News captured transgender pedophile Hannah Tubbs bragging about her light sentence in a juvenile facility. Tubbs was sentenced to two years in jail for molesting a 10-year-old girl inside a restaurant bathroom. After the top prosecutor became aware of troubling comments Tubbs made in jail - including that she wouldn't have to register as a sex offender and that 'nothing' would be done to punish her - Gascón said he's rethinking his approach. 'It's unfortunate that she gamed the system,' Gascón told the Los Angeles Times. 'If I had to do it all over again, she would be prosecuted in adult court.' However, his critics say his apparent remorse is just a public stunt as recall efforts against him grow.  'He knew Fox was going to run...
