Four members of a southern Ohio family are in custody as suspects in the execution-style slayings of eight people from another family, authorities said.

George “Billy” Wagner III, his wife and their two adult sons were taken into custody Tuesday in connection with the cold case slayings of seven members of the Rhoden family and the fiancée of one of the victims. The bodies were found at four separate homes in the rural town of Piketon in April 2016.

“The Wagners were friends with the Rhodens and had been for years,” DeWine said. “They knew the layouts of the Rhodens’ homes, and they knew the victims’ routines. It is our belief that the suspects used this knowledge to meticulously plan these horrendous, cold-blooded murders.”

At the time of the slayings, Hanna Rhoden and Edward “Jake” Wagner were allegedly fighting over the custody of their child.

A New Port Richey man, who had just been freed from jail Tuesday for an auto theft charge, tried to break into a car on his way through the jail parking lot, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

The problem: A deputy was behind the wheel.

Klaid Karpuzi, 41, was arrested by the deputy and marched back inside the Land O' Lakes Detention Center, the Sheriff's Office said. Now he faces a second charge of attempted auto theft.

apparently on his first day he took a canoe (from a larger boat) to the island and returned w/ arrow wounds

next day, he decided to try again... they broke his canoe, so he swam back to boat

next day, he decided to try again... and they admired his persistence & welcomed him, or so he hoped i guess... ("the (larger boat) fishermen later saw the tribespeople dragging his body around")

some more info from the guy who couldn't take a hint:

"I hollered, 'My name is John, I love you and Jesus loves you,'" he wrote in his diary, pages of which were shared by his mother with the Washington Post. Shortly after, a young member of the tribe shot at him, according to his account.

In pages left with the fishermen who facilitated his trip to the island, his musings are a clear indication of his desire to convert the tribe.

"Lord, is this island Satan's last stronghold where none have heard or even had the chance to hear your name?" he wrote.

His notes indicate that he knew the trip was illegal, describing how the small fishing vessel transported him to the isolated island under cover of darkness, evading patrols.

"God Himself was hiding us from the Coast Guard and many patrols," he wrote.

...

While on board, he wrote one final note to his family.

"You guys might think I'm crazy in all this but I think it's worthwhile to declare Jesus to these people," it said. "God, I don't want to die."

Shanette Yvette Wilson, 37, was in a checkout line a Dollar Store in Florida when she passed gas and then got into a verbal dispute with John Walker, a customer next to her, according to the Miami Herald.

Wilson is accused of pulling a small "lock back knife" from her purse, opened the knife, and told Walker she was going to 'gut' him, according to the police report.

charity kills, help no one:

A Baltimore woman was fatally stabbed Saturday after she rolled down her car window to give money to a seemingly struggling young mother, according to police.

Jacquelyn Smith, 52, was in the front passenger seat of a car with her family when they stopped to help the woman, the Baltimore Police Department.

Believed to be in her 20s, the woman was reportedly holding a cardboard sign stating “Please Help me feed my Baby” while cradling either a baby or an object that had been wrapped to look like one, according to the police statement.

After handing the woman money, a black male reportedly approached the vehicle to thank the family, the statement said.

It is alleged he then “reached in to grab the female victim’s wallet when a struggle ensued.”

“The male suspect then produced a knife and stabbed the victim in the torso before fleeing the area on foot with the female suspect who was holding the sign,” the police statement said.

Doctors were unable to save Smith, who succumbed to her injuries.

That reminds me... the homeless in my area have usually just been old white people, Native Americans, and regular urchin types who have particular spots picked out, but in the last month we've gotten gypsies at a lot of unusual locations. Their signs have significant work done to them — not the usual black marker on cardboard but lots of color and artwork, like they definitely do it for a living. I wonder... but anyways, I wouldn't go near stabbing distance, especially not after seeing LiveLeak videos of gypsies trying to distract people while they rob them :p

Probably wouldn't have worked even if he'd managed to get the lift to the stopped limo and had had plenty of time :D .. those security limos can be super heavy due to the armor and equipment, and regular-sized forklifts can only lift a few thousand pounds. Can't find info on the type of forklift he stole, but I'd guess it wasn't a big one.. so hopefully they'll see he's crazy and unrealistic and take pity ;p

A District of Columbia clerk and a supervisor refused to accept a New Mexico man’s state driver’s license as he sought a marriage license because she and her supervisor believed New Mexico was a foreign country.

In a statement, the D.C. courts system acknowledged the staff error.

“We understand that a clerk in our Marriage Bureau made a mistake regarding New Mexico’s 106-year history as a state,” Leah H. Gurowitz, spokeswoman for D.C. Courts, said in an email. “We very much regret the error and the slight delay it caused a New Mexico resident in applying for a D.C. marriage license.”

Also, there are high school photos of me up now that I should probably just delete.” At press time, Rohrbach’s friends and family were protesting CNN’s use of a photo of Rohrbach standing next to a more attractive friend after both were shot to death at a birthday party."

A Utah man has been charged with sexual assault and kidnapping after authorities say he hammered a tool resembling an ice pick through another man’s penis during an argument.

The 45-year-old Jason Dee Maughn is scheduled to make a court appearance Wednesday in Salt Lake City.

Court documents show that Maughn is accused of putting a gun to the victim’s head and handcuffing him to a chair on Aug. 30. The victim told police he was given a choice of being killed in the desert or having a nail driven into his penis. He says he went to the hospital the next day for treatment after Maughn took the handcuffs off.

The charging document describes the case as domestic violence and says the men lived together, but doesn’t explain their exact relationship.

ah, found out what Rudy was complaining about...

-----

In a tweet on Tuesday, Mr. Giuliani said the social network had “allowed someone to invade my text with a disgusting anti-President message.” He was referring to a Nov. 30 tweet in which Mr. Giuliani — by failing to put a space after a period, and starting the next sentence with the word “In” — had inadvertently created a hyperlink.

"G-20.In" is a real domain name, but it hadn’t been used before Mr. Giuliani tweeted it. Twitter automatically converts such valid links into blue, clickable text.

When Jason Velazquez, 37, who owns a web design firm in Atlanta, saw the tweet, he immediately bought the domain for about $5. He then created a page with a simple message, which anyone who clicked on Mr. Giuliani’s accidental link would see: “Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country.” The whole process took him about 15 minutes, Mr. Velazquez said on Tuesday.

so Rudy's "period no space" comment not as incomprehensible as it seemed :p he was just trying to describe the auto-linked text (but still a baseless accusation that is totally unacceptable from someone in his position...)

Sounds like he’s blaming Twitter for his not knowing how to work Twitter :D ... Forcing old politicians to adopt Twitter and social media to keep with the times may have been a mistake .. but —like I think has been said here a few times — probably so was social media ;D

A river otter in British Columbia wanted for scarfing down numerous beloved koi from Vancouver’s Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden might have fled the scene for good.

But that wasn’t before eating the majority of the pond’s adult koi. Last week the garden moved the remaining three adult fish to the Vancouver Aquarium to keep them safe from the otter.

The otter was first spotted in the park late last month, and park officials began setting humane traps in hopes of catching and relocating the predator so the koi wouldn’t be on the menu.

One particularly well-known fish, named Madonna, was believed to be 50 years old before becoming one of the otter’s victims.

Despite efforts to catch and relocate the otter, the clever critter evaded the traps for days, managing to eat the bait in the traps without triggering them. It also continued snacking on koi. The decision to remove the remaining fish to their temporary refuge at the aquarium came after the otter ate at least 10 of the garden’s 14 adult koi.

No one has spotted the otter since the day staffers moved the fish, said Cheung. And while only time will tell if the otter will reappear ― especially after the fish are returned ― for now, it seems the otter has been able to make a getaway.

The otter-koi conflict led to people in Vancouver and beyond to start declaring loyalty to one animal or the other, pronouncing themselves as either Team Otter or Team Koi.

That passerby must have been fronting or something. I don't front, but maybe nobody is safe?

some more details on the above penis assault, as i'm sure we all wanted to know...


Charging documents state Maughn placed a wooden board under the victim’s groin after his pants were pulled down. Maughn then positioned a tool resembling an ice pick on top of the victim’s genitals. He then used a rusty hammer to drive the tool resembling the ice pick into the victim’s genitals and into the wood board below.

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A man and woman admit in court they drove from Arizona to Wyoming with two children in the trunk of their car.

Sixty-three-year-old Michael J. Fee and 31-year-old Amber L. Freudenstein each pleaded guilty Thursday to two misdemeanor counts of child endangerment.

Sheriff’s officials say a third party told them the children reported riding in the trunk for much of the 900-mile drive while two German shepherds sat in the back seat.

Fee said in court there was not enough room for everyone so the children were relegated to the trunk. Court documents show the children are about 6 and 10 years old.

“But the dogs would have barked the whole trip if we’d put *them* in the trunk! ... The children were quiet in there... until after the trip when they snitched”

i think it was for the best as you can't explain to the dogs what's going on but you can for the kids (+ the kids were probably annoying)

==============

this sounds interesting, i don't quite understand the explanation but when they mention incorporating it w/ phones, i assume it's a star trek medical tricorder:
