    A FORENSIC expert has voiced a chilling theory explaining why the suspected Delphi murderer may have chosen to work in a CVS near the crime. Former medical examiner Joseph Scott Morgan suggested that working in a pharmacy could have given prime suspect Richard Allen intimate access to the community and a "sick pleasure" while investigators desperately searched for leads in the haunting case. 4Suspected Delphi killer Richard Allen may have stuck around the small Indiana town after the crime for dark reasons, crime expert Joseph Scott Morgan saysCredit: AP 4Allen was arrested for the 2017 murders of Libby (left) and Abby (right)Credit: YouTube 4Former medical examiner Joseph Scott Morgan suggested that by working at the local CVS, Allen may have had intimate access to the community 4Prosecutors have claimed that Allen, 50, may not be the only suspect in the haunting caseCredit: Twitter/libertyg_sister "When you think about a pharmacist or a pharmacy, they know more about you than you might suspect," Morgan exclusively told The U.S. Sun.

    Cops probing the horrific murders of four University of Idaho students face a 'major challenge' recovering samples of the killer's DNA because of the amount of blood at the scene, a forensics expert has said. Joseph Scott Morgan, a forensics professor at Jacksonville State University, said as the killer moved from victim to victim, there would be a 'commingling of blood' that makes it 'difficult to distinguish individual samples'. Police are yet to name a suspect in the murders of Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Xana's freshman boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, 20. They were killed in the early hours of Sunday morning on November 13 in the house in Moscow, Idaho, which the girls shared with two other roommates. Detectives also revealed on Tuesday that they're looking at whether Goncalves had a stalker. Moscow Police have received hundreds of tips and pieces of information but still haven't uncovered an identity for the killer. Morgan told Fox News: 'From a blood evidence standpoint, this is a profoundly bloody scene. Roommates Kaylee Goncalves, 21, (second left), Madison Mogen, 21, (on Kaylee's...
    SELF-CHECKOUT machines might save shoppers time when at the grocery store, however the popular technology keeps costing retailers money as they fail to combat accidental and intentional stealing.  As recently as September, popular grocery store chain Wegmans was forced to shut down its self-checkout app that allowed users to scan items while they shopped, citing losses in sales. 2Self-check out machines are costing retailers money because of accidental and intentional stealingCredit: Getty 2A 2018 report found that if shoppers have 100 items in their cart, there is a 86% chance something goes unscannedCredit: Getty “SCAN users have told us they love the app and convenience it offers,” Wegmans said in a statement obtained by the New York Times. “Unfortunately, the losses we are experiencing prevent us from continuing to make it available in its current state.” Concerns about such losses, whether they are driven by accidental or intentional stealing, are far from new.  A 2018 report revealed that out of over 140 million scan-and-go transactions at 13 different stores in the United States and United Kingdom, retailers could see up...
    “It was reported to police that a 15-year-old was assaulted by a group of individuals who forcefully removed his property,” police said in a statement, the paper said. “The victim sustained injuries to his face and body.”'Basically nothing you can do to these kids'Joseph Giacalone — a former New York City police sergeant who is a professor at City University of New York’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice — told the Post there's little that can be done to the attackers amid our present criminal justice climate. “Here’s the problem with this one," Giacalone told the paper. "You have a gang assault — which is a bail-eligible offense — and you have kids that are under the age of 18. So there is just basically nothing you can do to these kids.”
    MARTINEZ — In one of the first major rulings of its kind statewide, a Contra Costa judge reversed murder convictions for two East Contra Costa men, writing that the trial prosecutor and police testimony violated a law designed to eliminate racism in criminal court. The 71-page ruling by Judge Clare Maier means that Gary Bryant Jr. and Diallo Jackson will likely be re-tried in the 2014 killing of 23-year-old Kenneth Wayne Cooper, of Pittsburg. But Maier’s order has broader implications. It was widely considered an early acid test of the Racial Justice Act of 2020, which makes it illegal to obtain a conviction “on the basis of race, ethnicity, or national origin.” One of the tipping points cited by Maier was the use of the n-word by the prosecutor, defense attorneys, and a police gang expert when quoting rap lyrics by the defendants, which prosecutors argued proved their gang ties and helped to discredit their claims that Cooper was killed in self-defense. Prosecutors argued the killing was a murder in the commission of a robbery. Maier made her decision after...
    ELON Musk and Twitter's messy legal battle could have detrimental effects as the social media site has paused helping cops with "real-life" criminal cases, an expert warned. Assistant Professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Adam Wandt spoke with The U.S. Sun about the consequences of the upcoming trial between the SpaceX CEO and Twitter. 4An expert warned that Elon Musk and Twitter's messy legal battle could have some real-world effectsCredit: AFP 4Assistant Professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Adam Wandt said that it's important that Twitter respond to requests from law enforcement for informationCredit: Reuters A court recently denied Musk's attempt to delay his trial against the social media platform after backing out of his buyout, citing issues with privacy such as bots and spam accounts. Bots weren't the only reason that Musk stopped the purchase. He claims that Twitter wasn't running its business how he expected as the acquisition was closing. Twitter, however, claimed that the billionaire was trying to drag out the trial and "sow chaos" with more document requests, even claiming that the...
    A decision about whether a man accused of stabbing his former high school classmate to death and burying the body in a Lake Forest park is competent to stand trial was delayed Thursday, Sept. 1, after the defendant apparently refused to meet with a mental-health expert. Criminal proceedings against Samuel Woodward — who is charged with the January 2018 killing of Blaze Bernstein — are on hold until a judge determines whether Woodward is capable of understanding the court proceedings and is able to assist with his defense. A defense attorney in mid-July raised concerns about Woodward’s mental competency, leading a judge to assign two experts — one chosen by the prosecution, the other by the defense — to evaluate Woodward. The prosecution’s expert has submitted his report under seal, court records show. During a Thursday hearing, Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Walker told a judge that the second expert reported to her that Woodward has refused to meet so the expert has been unable to finish a report. It was unclear if the meeting was to be somewhere in the...
    (CNN)Authorities in Brazil have charged three men with "aggravated double homicide and concealment of a corpse" following the disappearance last month of British journalist Dom Philips and Brazilian indigenous expert Bruno Pereira.Amarildo da Cosa Oliveira, Oseney da Costa de Oliveira, and Jefferson da Silva Lima were processed as defendants for the crimes committed in the Javari Valley, according to a statement released by the federal prosecutor's office Friday.Veteran journalist Phillips and indigenous expert Pereira vanished on June 5 during a trip to the far western part of Amazonas state. Their deaths in the remote region have drawn global attention to the perils often faced by journalists and environmental activists in Brazil.A federal court judge in Amazonas lifted the confidentiality surrounding the case's details on Thursday.Amarildo and Jefferson allegedly confessed to the crime in June and Amarildo led authorities to the bodies. However, Oseney's participation was established through witness statements, according to the federal prosecutor's office.Read More"There were already records of disagreements between Bruno and Amarildo over illegal fishing in the indigenous territory," the statement said."What motivated the murders was the...
    In an email exchange with The Arizona Sun Times this week, a Maricopa County Recorder’s office spokesperson may have unwittingly admitted that the county mishandled thousands of ballots from the 2020 general election that one watchdog groups says were accepted after the legal deadline. Megan Gilbertson, the communications director for the Maricopa County Elections Department (MCED) – a department of the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office – said that the department processed ballots by scanning them into the tabulating machines at MCED before transferring their custody the next day to Runbeck Election Services, which verifies their legitimacy with signature verification. She stated, “Due to the large volumes of early ballots received Election Day, we are scanning in early ballots received by 7 p.m. on Election Day well into the next morning, which is why a transfer of custody document would have a date after Election Day.” In an earlier email, Gilbertson noted that “early ballot envelope signatures that are cured would also be tracked and scanned after Election Day until the curing deadline. None of these ballots would be marked as...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Crime over the holiday weekend dominated headlines. Police say five people were killed in Baltimore between Friday and Memorial Day – and several others were injured after shootings in the city. One of the victims was 17-year-old Neal Mack, who died after being shot near the Inner Harbor.

    Suzanne Morphew (Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office)  CAÑON CITY — Their case crippled by judicial sanctions, prosecutors on Tuesday abruptly dropped all charges against Barry Morphew in the death of his wife Suzanne Morphew, just nine days before the murder case was set to go to trial and nearly two years after the woman disappeared from her Chaffee County home. The move by 11th Judicial District Attorney Linda Stanley comes after the judge presiding in the case blocked the prosecution from using most of its expert witnesses at trial as punishment for violating discovery rules — and as prosecutors say they’re close to finding Suzanne Morphew’s body. Barry Morphew, 54, had been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Suzanne Morphew, 49. She was reported missing on May 10, 2020, prompting an extensive yearlong search, but her body was never found. Prosecutors argued Barry Morphew killed his wife on the evening of May 9, 2020, after discovering her nearly 2-year extramarital affair, then disposed of her body and staged a bike crash before leaving early the next day to work...
    Suzanne Morphew (Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office)  CAÑON CITY — Prosecutors on Monday moved to drop the murder charges they had filed against Barry Morphew in the death of his wife Suzanne Morphew, who disappeared from the family’s Chaffee County home in May 2020, less than 10 days before the case was set to go to trial. The request by 11th Judicial District Attorney Linda Stanley comes after the judge presiding in the case had blocked the prosecution from using most of its expert witnesses at trial as punishment for violating discovery rules — and as prosecutors say they’re close to discovering Suzanne Morphew’s body. Fremont County District Court Judge Ramsey Lama called a recess to consider the prosecution’s 11-page motion to dismiss, and to allow the defense team to consider whether they want to object to some of the prosecution’s wording in that motion. In the motion, Stanley wrote that she believes investigators are close to finding Suzanne Morphew’s body. “The People were hopeful that the search for, and the discovery of, the victim’s body would be concluded well before...
    The Orange County District Attorney’s Office has launched a review of a DNA expert accused by defense attorneys of altering her findings to aid the prosecution. The review was announced late Monday, April 4, after forensic specialist Mary Hong could not support her earlier analysis in a murder case. Hong’s reluctance to testify led to the release of a man who was allowed to plead guilty to a lesser charge for the 1988 killing of a Buena Park woman. The District Attorney’s Office now is reviewing all of Hong’s active cases in Orange County to determine the integrity of her work. Daniel McDermott, 52, was released from jail early Saturday after spending nine years behind bars, six of them since his first trial ended in a hung jury. He pleaded guilty a day earlier to voluntary manslaughter, midway through a murder trial in the killing and rape of 18-year-old Gehmine Chandler. Faced life sentence McDermott could have faced a sentence of life without the possibility of parole if convicted. Instead, he was sentenced to time already served in exchange for...
    Mr Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, and the crimes being committed in his name, feel very personal to me. It is where many of my family once lived.  I visited for the first time in October 2010, to give a lecture on ‘crimes against humanity’ and ‘genocide’, two crimes invented in 1945 for the famous Nuremberg Trials, in which former Nazi leaders were indicted and tried as war criminals by an international military tribunal.  As an academic and lawyer, international crimes are my speciality, my day job. I decided to accept the invitation to Lviv — a city in west Ukraine I had barely heard of — after I realised that it was once called Lemberg and was the place of my grandfather Leon’s birth when the city was in the Austro-Hungarian Empire.  I found the house where he was born and learned that he fled the city in September 1914 aged ten, with his mother and two sisters, refugees from occupying Russian forces who had already killed his brother.  In recent days, thousands of refugees have again been descending on...
    Massive social upheaval spurred by the coronavirus pandemic is in large part to blame for the national surge in violent crime — not guns, an expert told Fox News Digital. "We have crime because we have people," said Amy Swearer, a legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank. "Crime is a very complex subject." From the early 1990s through 2019, there was a national decline in violent crime, but the pendulum swung back in 2020, she said. Salesman Ryan Martinez clears the chamber of an AR-15 at the "Ready Gunner" gun store In Provo, Utah.

    Soft-on-crime district attorneys across the country are to blame for a spike in violent crime – not firearms, a former federal prosecutor told Fox News Digital. "Guns don’t commit crimes, neither do knives and hammers, people do," said Charles Stimson, now a senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank. "It’s a red herring to focus on guns rather than the harder issue of how to enforce the law fairly and hold criminals accountable."

    CYBER experts have seen a rise in online scams during the pandemic and they're already anticipating more in 2022. We spoke to Elizabeth Snead, a product manager at security firm WMC Global, about what you need to watch out for. 1Watch out for pandemic and package scams in 2022Credit: PA The expert expressed concerns about package delivery scams and phishing. Phishing is a type of online scam that takes place over email, social media, texts, phone calls and more. It usually involves cyber criminals sending fake messages to a large number of people and seeing how many they can trick. Snead told The Sun: "Package delivery scams have run rampant during the pandemic as consumers have shifted to ordering things for their everyday needs online. "Employee Business Email Compromised (BEC) will continue to be important, especially as remote work continues to trend. "Phishers will use a variety of ways to trick users into giving up their credentials and two-factor authentication codes so they can take over accounts and financially benefit.

    In 1987, Tawana Brawley was found unresponsive in a plastic bag, covered in feces, and with racial slurs written on her body. She later said she had been held in a cabin and raped by white men for days. In 2012, a gay club in Chicago was defaced with slurs and burned to the ground. In 2015, black students at Kean University received death threats on Twitter. These high-profile incidents were all investigated as hate crimes and garnered sympathy around the country. They were also all found to have been faked. Jussie Smollett’s story about being attacked with bleach and a noose in Chicago by Trump supporters for being black and gay hit all the same notes. A jury found him guilty of lying to police last week, though the former Empire actor plans to appeal. Wilfred Reilly, a professor and author of the book Hate Crime Hoax: How the Left is Selling a Fake Race War, spoke to the Washington Examiner about the surprising frequency of fake hate crimes and what might happen to Smollett down...
    Late Thursday night Jussie Smollett's fate was decided during his hate crime hoax trial in Chicago.  After a contentious week of witness testimony, counsel arguments and deliberation, the jury found the former "Empire" actor guilty on the first five counts, and he was acquitted on a sixth count of lying to a detective weeks after Smollett said he was attacked. Lara Yeretsian, a criminal defense attorney who didn't work on the case, told Fox News she wasn't surprised by the verdict and doesn't believe Smollett's celebrity status helped him at all.  "Not a surprising decision by the jury, but what a waste of taxpayers’ money! Pretrial diversion was a fair disposition in this case. Unfortunately, being a celebrity backfired in this case," she said.  JUSSIE SMOLLETT CONVICTED OF STAGING HATE CRIME, LYING TO COPS "Now that he’s been found guilty of five felony charges, he’ll most likely get a probationary sentence in light of his lack of prior record. So what did the prosecution really gain? They used the criminal justice system and taxpayers’ money to punish Smollett for wasting...
    New York's mayor-elect Eric Adams has gotten his first taste of the extortion tactics that the city's anti-cop radicals will use against him once he takes office.  Last week, a leader of New York Black Lives Matter threatened 'riots . . . fire . . . and bloodshed' should Adams deliver on a campaign promise to revive a contested undercover unit of the New York Police Department. Adams brushed off the threat. But the argument that BLM leader Hawk Newsome made against the unit—that it has a disparate impact on blacks—will come up repeatedly if Adams carries through on his anti-crime platform. Ironically, Adams himself lodged that disparate impact argument against the NYPD in previous years. He now better be prepared to meet and rebuff it.

    BRIAN Laundrie had weeks to “disturb evidence” at the crime scene if he killed his fiancée Gabby Petito, a DNA expert says. Gabby's body was found in a Wyoming campground on September 19 - weeks after she was last seen with her 23-year-old fiancé. 3Brian Laundrie had weeks to disturb evidence if he killed his fiancée Gabby Petito, a DNA expert saysCredit: Instagram 3Gabby mysteriously disappeared weeks after starting a cross-country road trip with LaundrieCredit: Instagram It's believed Gabby was last seen alive on August 27 at The Merry Piglets Tex-Mex restaurant in Jackson before she vanished.

    GABBY Petito “didn’t attack her killer” before she was strangled and the crime scene didn't show "any obvious signs of struggle", a prosecutor says.

He told KSL: “All I see is one individual who suffered the damage and no evidence of injury created by her.” The expert didn’t notice any “obvious signs of struggle” on the ground. Morgan said the remains were covered near a pair of discarded hiking shoes. He said the footage indicated that whoever discarded Gabby's body there did so with haste.

                        If Georgia officials want to reverse soaring crime rates then they must keep more experienced prosecutors on the job, and they must also contain the spread of COVID-19 so jails can hold more prisoners. This, according to Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia (PACGA) Executive Director Pete Skandalakis. He spoke Tuesday at a hearing about crime in Atlanta before Georgia State House Public Safety and Homeland Security committee members. “The courts shut down [because of the pandemic]. The jails could not possibly keep bringing people in. Sheriffs determined they had to keep their jails confined or open to the most violent of criminals. There were a number of people who typically might be held in custody, maybe some repeat offenders, who are being given access to bonds so they could get out so you would not have an overcrowding of the jails,” Skandalakis said. “And there is another reason you wanted to make sure you kept jail populations low during the pandemic. And that is the health costs that...
    CNN host Erin Burnett on Wednesday asked legal analyst Elie Honig whether he believes former President Donald Trump had committed a crime while in office -- and Honig didn't hesitate to say yes. "I see several federal crimes here," Honig replied. "I'll be specific: It is a federal crime to deprive a state of a fair election. It is a federal crime to solicit false counting of ballots, false certification of an election. It is a federal crime to conspire against the United States." Despite this, however, Honig said he was disturbed to not see any movement toward prosecuting Trump by the United States Department of Justice. "I've not seen a single public indication the current justice department has any inclination to look at anything Donald Trump has done," he said. "But this is deadly serious and there has to be consequences. Imagine if there is no consequences for this whatsoever -- what kind of message does that send? DOJ has a job to do here." Watch the video below. Trump may have committed 'several federal crimes' --...

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson isn't backing down from his claim that the National Security Agency tried to leak his private emails to the press, inviting a guest on his show to say such an action would be a 'serious federal crime.' Carlson has said that his communications seeking an interview with Vladimir Putin were intercepted by the NSA, and his identity - which should by law have been kept a secret - was 'unmasked' by senior intelligence officials.  Carlson claimed that the content of his emails and texts was then disseminated to members of the media, in a bid to discredit him as an agent of Russia. On his show on Thursday, Carlson spoke with legal scholar Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University. 'If reporters were given that information, it would be even more serious because even if your email itself was not classified, the intercept is,' said Turley.  'NSA... material is heavily classified. I do national security work and it takes years for me to get access to a FISA warrant, I should say, or...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Part of Chicago’s plan to stop a spike in gun violence includes massive overtime by police. But will longer workdays really lower crime?

    Fox Nation's ‘In the Valley of Sin’ examines the mid-90s witch hunt that pitted neighbor against neighbor in Wenatchee, Washington — the self-appointed 'Apple Capital of The World' — when police uncovered a monstrous child sex ring known among its membership as 'The Circle.' Local authorities alleged that dozens of children were raped in the bedrooms of their parents, in the homes of their neighbors, and at ritualized orgies on the altar of a church. But there was one problem: none of it actually happened.   There had been no such sex ring --- a truth that only emerged after 43 parents were arrested and dozens of children were made wards of the state. The harrowing accusations were completely unfounded, leaving Wenatchee desperate for answers. Now, Fox Nation searches for such answers, as former prosecutor and 'Crime Stories' host Nancy Grace provides insight into the story that changed a town forever. "Evil does not require a motive...it simply is."— Nancy GraceQ. If true, "The Circle" would have likely gone down as one of the most egregious cases of crimes in American history; instead, what’s egregious is that it had...
    Investigators working to determine the cause of Tiger Woods’ rollover crash have obtained data stored in the “black box” of the luxury SUV he was driving, a report said. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department executed a search warrant to gather the information, which could show the vehicle’s speed before the collision and whether its brakes were applied, authorities told USA Today. “We’re trying to determine if a crime was committed,” Sheriff’s Deputy John Schloegl told the news outlet. “If somebody is involved in a traffic collision, we’ve got to reconstruct the traffic collision. If there was any reckless driving, if somebody was on their cell phone or something like that. If there was no crime, we close out the case, and it was a regular traffic collision.” Woods was driving a 2021 Genesis GV80 alone when he veered across the median on Hawthorne Boulevard in Rancho Palos Verdes, went off the road and struck a tree. The legendary golfer broke several bones in his lower right leg and is still recovering in the hospital. A forensic car expert...
    Levels of police staffing across the U.S. have dropped sharply from a decade ago, federal data shows, even as calls mount to defund police departments and officers quit the job at record numbers. In 2019, there were about 219 full-time equivalent sworn local and state police officers per 100,000 residents in America, according to a DailyMail.com analysis of data from the Census Bureau's Annual Survey of Public Employment and Payroll. That represents a 6 percent decline from 2009, when police employment levels most recently peaked, in a troubling trend as violent crime rises in major cities across the country. Policing levels hit their highest in the late 1990s, in response to the crime wave of the 80s and 90s, and new funding from the 1994 crime bill. Following budget cuts in the Great Recession, police staffing tapered off and has never recovered.   The number of full-time equivalent local and state police officers per 100,000 residents in the US is seen from 1997 to 2019 in the chart above  Demonstrators argue with Louisville Police officers during a protest last month...
    Major cities across the United States are seeing a 'dramatic and widespread spike in homicides' after police funding cuts, according to one expert.  Paul Cassell, a professor at S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah has dubbed the rise in crime the 'Minneapolis effect'.  The city council in Minneapolis voted to dismantle the police and slash its budget after the May 25 death of black man George Floyd while in custody.  Cassell estimates that 'as a result of de-policing during June and July 2020, approximately 710 additional victims were murdered and more than 2,800 victims were shot'.   In research published this month Cassell wrote: 'Recently, major cities across the country have suffered dramatic spikes in homicides.
