‘Martinis & Murder’ Introduce New Mini Episodes Series, ‘Another Shot’

Fresh off the excitement from the arrest of the Golden State Killer last week, co-hosts John Thrasher and Daryn Carp launched the first ever mini epiosde on Martinis Murder, aptly titled “Another Shot.” 

The mini episodes are meant to keep fans listening during the week between full epiosdes. “We really wanted to do more episodes of some sort but we didn’t have the time for multiple murders in one week,” John Thrasher says. “Matt can barely handle doing his job on the podcast for one episode. Imagine we ask him to do another. It would be a mess!” Daryn Carp also agreed. “John and I love our fans, and we keep wanting to do more for them,” Daryn says. “Another Shot is our chance to answer the fans directly, have fun and take shots! Plus, Matt was hoping this would be his chance to get to talk more. We quickly

Another Alleged Taylor Swift Stalker Arrested At Her Mansion, This Time With Ammo In His Car

Disturbed Taylor Swift fans keep coming out of the woods.

A gun-owning man in Beverly Hills whose car was filled with ammunition was arrested Tuesday for allegedly trying to break into the pop star’s mansion — marking the third time this month a man has been arrested for a Swift-related crime.

Julius Sandrock, 38, allegedly tried to break into Swift’s Beverly Hills pad wearing a mask and rubber gloves, according to court papers cited by the New York Daily News. In his car, police found rounds of .380 and 9mm ammunition, along with black and latex gloves, a knife, masks, black rope and an empty box of .22 caliber ammunition. Police rushed to file a firearm restraining order after Sandrock told them he owned a .22, .380 and 9mm handgun.

Police also found “psychologist paperwork” and prescriptions for drugs including oxycodone and the antidepressant fluoxetine, the papers said. Sandrock told cops he

Another Family May Have Plunged Into River Near Hart Clan Crash Site

Investigators are searching for a family whose SUV may have been seen plunging into the Eel River in Southern California on Friday. The California Highway Patrol, Southern Humboldt Technical Rescue and volunteer fire departments have responded to the scene but have been unable to locate the vehicle due to the strong river currents and poor visibility in the area, reports CBS San Francisco.

The Thottappilly family—Sandeep, 42, Soumya 38, Siddhant, 12 and Saachi, 9— were driving from Portland, Oregon in a maroon Honda Pilot to San Jose when they stopped communicating with family in Valencia, California on Thursday. A relative became concerned and contacted San Jose Police Department.

A witness recalled seeing an SUV matching the one belonging to the Thottapilly family flip over into the river. “The next thing I know, it’s on two wheels and I’m going by and it’s flipping over,” the witness told ABC Los Angeles

Another Package Bomb Goes Off In Texas, This Time Near San Antonio

A little after midnight on Tuesday, there was another blast in Texas, a state which has been recently rattled by package bombs. This time, the explosion occurred at a FedEx facility outside San Antonio, according to CNN.

An employee was hurt after a “single package exploded,” FedEx spokesman Jim McCluskey told CNN. That employee suffered minor injuries. Local police said, through a statement posted on Facebook, that “the explosion came from a package in the sorting area of the facility. One person was treated and released at the scene.”

The package was intended to reach an Austin address and the return address was also from Austin, according to CBS Austin.

The facility where the package detonated is located in Schertz, about an hour away from Austin. Police are now trying to determine if this explosion is connected to the four package bombs that have rocked Austin.  In fact, FBI Special Agent Michelle

Man Accused Of Killing A Couple That Helped Him In Another Alleged Murder

A man already charged in the murder of a couple found buried in a shallow grave in September has just been indicted for the murder of another body found buried under a vacant home in Fort Worth, Texas.

On Thursday, a grand jury indicted Hector “Cholo” Acosta, 28, and his alleged accomplice Felipe Eduardo Ortiz, 29, on capital murder charges in connection with the body found under the home, the Star-Telegram reports. That body was Triston Ray Algiene, 34, who had been missing since July. His body was discovered in October, cut in half before being shoved under a repair patch in the vacant home’s foundation.

Just one month before Algiene’s body was found, Acosta was indicted on the capital murder charge of Erick “Diablo” Zelaya and Zelaya’s girlfriend, Iris Chirinos, who was only 17 years old.

The severed head of Zelaya was discovered on a walking trail. Near the head,

15-Year-Old Viciously Beaten In McDonald’s Bathroom While Another Teen Takes Video

A disturbing video shows a 15-year-old boy backing up into the corner of a McDonald’s bathroom and curling up in a ball on top of a toilet in an attempt to protect himself from the punches of another boy. That video, recorded by another student, has been shared all over Wellington High School in Florida.

“I’m terrified for my kid,” the victim’s mother told WPTV.

In the minute long-clip, the alleged perpetrator, a 17-year-old boy, kicks the bathroom stall open to attack the victim. He then takes his phone only to throw it onto the ground.

“I was furious first of all then I became scared and then it was like disbelief,” the victim’s mother told WPTV. She said her son was followed into the fast food establishment’s bathroom.

According to an NBC affiliate, the victim suffered minor injuries and bruises.

The Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office stated that a 17-year-old was arrested in

Police: Chinx’s Murder Linked To Prison Beef With Another Rapper

More details are emerging from the murder of rapper Chinx. The hip-hop cold case may have been cracked last week when two men were arrested for murder. According to the New York Police Department, the 31-year-old Queens rapper was gunned down while in his car over what’s being described as a six-year prison feud.

Lt. Richard Rudolph, Commanding Officer of the Queens South Homicide Squad, tells XXL that the suspects “hunted” down Chinx (real name Lionel Pickens Jr.). He says that 32-year-old Quincy Homere and 26-year-old Jamar Hill murdered the rising rap star over a feud that took place when Chinx was incarcerated. Chinx and Homere were both at Rikers Island and apparently fought each other on Sept. 27, 2009. 

“We’re not exactly sure what the fight was about but our perpetrator Quincy probably got the worst of it and he wanted to get back at Chinx,” Rudolph says. Homere is

Alert For Missing 8-Year-Old In Ohio After 3 People Found Shot To Death, Another Stabbed In Neck

A search is underway for a “person of interest” after three people were shot to death and another survived a stabbing. The violent attacks happened at two separate homes in Ohio. There was also a search out for a missing child, 8-year-old Devin Holston, who lived in one of the homes. However, that missing-child alert was later cancelled. The Associated Press reports that the Lawrence County sheriff’s office and the state attorney general’s office would not confirm if Holston was found safe.

The bodies of three adults in a house trailer were discovered on Wednesday evening by police. A fourth adult was found stabbed in the head and neck less than half a mile away in another home, the sheriff’s office stated. The person with the stab wounds survived and has been flown to a hospital in West Virginia.

Lawrence County Sheriff Jeff Lawless told the Ironton Tribune that the

While Trump promotes military buildup, some look at another round of base closings

WASHINGTON, D.C. — At the same time that President Donald Trump is pushing a plan to increase defense spending by 10 percent, Washington state Rep. Adam Smith says it’s time to save money by closing some of the nation’s military bases.

Smith, the top Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee, wants to reopen the controversial Base Realignment and Closure process, known as BRAC, last used in 2005.

While the 11th-term congressman has promoted base closings before with no luck, there are signs that the idea is getting increased attention this year on Capitol Hill.

“We ought to give it serious consideration,” Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in an interview Tuesday.

And South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, another member of the panel, sounded receptive to the idea as well, saying: “I’ll follow Senator McCain’s lead on this.”

Smith said that with McCain’s backing, “it makes
