    (CNN)At age 14, Alexander Neville was still very much a curious kid. He was a Boy Scout who enjoyed getting outdoors and camping. He played with Legos and liked to skateboard. He slept with a stuffed Iron Man figure and still snuggled with a teddy bear he'd had since he was much younger.But about a year and a half ago, the middle schooler confessed to his parents about a very adult problem: He was experimenting with oxycodone, a prescription painkiller.He had no idea that the pills he was taking were actually prescription knockoffs laced with fentanyl, a synthetic opioid. Just a few milligrams of fentanyl can be a fatal dose.One morning in June 2020, his mother, Amy, found him dead in his bedroom."I went to his room, and he was blue, just laying on his beanbag chair.

    A quick glance at the fortunes of the Maxwell siblings and it is difficult not to think the nine children of tyrannical media mogul Robert Maxwell were cursed from the start. Most famous among them is his youngest - and favourite - Ghislaine, the disgraced socialite who is waiting to stand trial on a string of charges relating to the trafficking minors for her former lover Jeffrey Epstein.  Maxwell, who denies all charges, faces a maximum sentence of 80 years in prison if found guilty of abuse, procurement of young girls for Epstein and sex trafficking crimes dating back decades.  Her brother Ian, 65, the seventh of the nine Maxwell children, has been a vocal supporter of his sister and spoke out again this week in her defence, saying he believes the 'enormous amount of negative media coverage' of the case will 'poison' the jury against her. Ian has had his fair share of experience in court. In the 1990s, he and younger brother Kevin stood trial for their part in their father's £460 million Mirror Group pension fraud.  But...

    OAKLAND — An Oakland man who has been charged with murdering a popular youth mentor in front of dozens of children who were practicing football allegedly wasted no time admitting to others what he’d done, according to statements by investigators that were filed in court records Friday. Daniel Stith, 36, has been charged with murdering 37-year-old Reuben Lewis III at Concordia Park in Oakland Wednesday evening. Authorities have not released a suspected motive for the shooting, but investigators allege that shortly after it happened, Stith “admitted to witnesses” that he’d killed someone at the park, and provided details that suggested he had firsthand knowledge of the crime. Investigators also wrote in court records that Stith was observed on video surveillance leaving the scene after the shooting. Stith is in Santa Rita Jail in Dublin on a no-bail hold. Authorities told this newspaper he turned himself in to San Leandro police after the shooting. Stith is due in court March 1 for an initial appearance. It is unclear whether he has yet been assigned an attorney. Lewis, a Concord resident, was...

    A California mother says her son is a “victim of this pandemic” after he accidentally overdosed following lockdowns being enacted in the state. “He started a steep downhill when the shutdown happened. He finished summer school, and four days later, he was gone," Ana Fradkin said, referring to her 14-year-old son Scotty, who died in August. Scotty Fradkin received a mental health diagnosis ahead of the pandemic, and his mother said he was getting healthier, was happy at school, and was attending group therapy, according to Spectrum News. Then lockdowns hit, and he was no longer able to attend events. “He’s collateral damage and as much a victim of this pandemic as anyone with COVID," Ana Fradkin said. The 14-year-old’s death is still under investigation, but law enforcement believes he ingested fentanyl, a synthetic opioid, that looked like Xanax. Fradkin’s comments come as California is seeing a spike in fentanyl use amid the pandemic. In Los Angeles County in 2013, fentanyl accounted for 3% of drug-related deaths. At the start of 2020, 42% of drug deaths...
    At least 140 American children died as a result of police-involved incidents between 2003 and 2018, a grim new study shows.  And much like the adult world, it's much more common for black or Hispanic children to be die due to police force than it is for cops to kill white children, according to Children's National Hospital.  A black child or adolescent is six times more likely to die at the hands of police than their white peers, and Hispanic kids face three-fold higher risks. Boys, too, are far more at-risk of dying due to 'police intervention,' than are girls, the study found.   It comes after the summer's widespread Black Lives Matter protests over the death of George Floyd, was killed when a Minneapolis police restrained him by pressing his knee onto the 36-year-old's neck.   Black children are most at-risk of being shot and killed by police, accounting for six-times more of the 140 cop-involved fatalities compared to their white peers.

    BOONEVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky sheriff and deputy created a “needlessly violent confrontation” that resulted in a fatal shooting, a federal judge said in a ruling that paves the way for a civil trial in response to a lawsuit filed by the shooting victim's children. U.S. District Judge Robert E. Wier dismissed some claims in the lawsuit, but said a jury needed to decide others, including whether the shooting was reasonable, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported on Thursday. An attorney for former Owsley County Sheriff Kelly Shouse and deputy Michael Havicus had sought a summary judgment that would dismiss all claims against them in the 2017 shooting of Charles Harris. The lawmen went to Harris' home after his girlfriend accused him of shoving her, said he kept knives and that he might be dangerous, according to court records. Wier said Harris declined to give the lawmen permission to enter his apartment, but they went in anyway so Harris went to his bedroom and closed the door. When officers followed, they said they found Harris armed with a knife and then...
