Four Teens Charged For Killing Baltimore County Cop Days Before Her Birthday And Anniversary

A manhunt for the killers of a Maryland police officer — who had planned to celebrate her birthday and wedding anniversary this weekend — ended Tuesday with the arrests of three teenagers.

The three suspects — who are 15, 16 and 17 and have not been identified — were charged as adults Wednesday morning with murder and burglary, according to WBAL-TV in Baltimore.

Their arrests come after Dawnta Harris, 16, was busted for his alleged role in the death of Baltimore County Police Officer Amy Caprio, 29.

Caprio on Monday confronted burglary suspects who attempted to flee in a vehicle. She ordered Harris, the driver of the Jeep, to step out of the car, police reported. Harris then allegedly charged at her and Caprio fired her weapon at the Jeep. After Harris allegedly mowed her down, he abandoned the vehicle nearby. It was found with a bullet hole in the front windshield.

Jennifer Hart May Have Been Drunk Before Family SUV Plunged Off Cliff

Jennifer Hart was reportedly drunk behind the wheel when her family’s SUV fell 100 feet off the Pacific Coast Highway in March. 

California Highway Patrol Capt. Bruce Carpenter said last week that Hart had a blood alcohol level of 0.102, according to People. The legal limit is .08.

Five members of the family were found dead at the bottom of the cliff—married couple Jennifer and Sarah Hart and three adopted children, Markis, 19, Jeremiah, 14, and Abigail, 14—after a motorist saw the remains of the SUV on March 26 in Northern California. Three remaining kids—Devonte, 15, Hannah, 16, and Sierra Hart, 12— are unaccounted for. 

Authorities believe all eight members of the family are dead, reported People

Teen Crushed In Minivan Makes Harrowing 911 Call Before Dying: ‘Tell My Mom That I Love Her’

Kyle Plush tried to retrieve tennis equipment in his parked Honda Odyssey minivan and somehow ended up dead. The Cincinnati teen, 16, was found pinned under the vehicle’s third-row bench, which compressed his chest and caused him to die of asphyxia, according to CNN.

After becoming pinned, Plush was able to call 911 twice using Siri on his phone, telling authorities that he was in “desperate need of help” at around 3:15 PM. According to CNN, Plush and the operator had trouble hearing each other, and the call ended after Plush said, “If you don’t send help I’m gonna die soon.”

Cops searched the parking lot of his Seven Hills School, but they were unable to initially locate the victim. The search lasted for 11 minutes until they closed the incident.

A little after 3:20 PM, two minutes before officers ended the search, Plush called 911 again. His voice was faint,

‘Tourniquet Killer’ Anthony Shore Confessed To More Rapes Before His Execution

Anthony Shore, the so-called “Tourniquet Killer” of Texas, confessed before his execution earlier this year to the brutal rapes of two women decades ago, a report revealed Monday.

Shore, 55, admitted to raping one woman in front of her husband at gunpoint, and another woman at knifepoint, according to a report by the Texas Rangers’ Department of Public Safety.

Shore said he started groping women on bike paths when he lived in the Sacramento, Calif. area in the late ’70s and early ’80s, and then started raping them to be a copycat of a serial rapist who was terrorizing the area.

He first broke into a woman’s house, tied her up and raped her, the report said.

Later, he broke into a young couple’s home.

“Shore allegedly tied up the man and the woman, and made the man ‘watch’ as he sexually assaulted the woman,” the report said, according to The Houston Chronicle. “According to Shore,

‘Suitcase Killer’ Before His Execution: ‘I’ve Fought The Good Fight’

A man who killed two women before disposing of their bodies in suitcases was executed by lethal injection in Texas on Tuesday evening.

Police: James Worley Searched For ‘Hogtyed + Teen’ On A Porn Site Weeks Before Student’s Death

Just weeks before Sierah Joughin’s bound and gagged body was found in a cornfield a few miles from James Worley’s home, he searched for “hogtyed + teen” on a pornographic website, Toledo Police Detective David Morford testified at Worley’s murder trial.

Cops Let Intoxicated Paramedic Off The Hook Before He Causes Fatal Crash

A paramedic from Indiana was charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and with reckless homicide last week for allegedly causing an accident which killed a couple. Tron Gorbonosenko, 40, was off-duty and allegedly driving his Ford Mustang with a blood alcohol level of .17 last month when the crash occurred, according to WNDU.

Don and Angie Kaczmarek, two local business owners, were inside a Honda Odyssey van when they were hit. Both died at the scene. Gorbonosenko was critically injured but released from a hospital about a week later.

Now, details are emerging that reveal that three police officers allegedly encountered Gorbonosenko before the crash, to investigate him for another fender bender. According to the Herald Argus, the cops investigated him just 90 minutes before the Kaczmarek couple was killed.

A Man Allegedly Put A Cat In The Freezer Before Throwing Her Off His Balcony

A California man is facing animal cruelty charges after torturing his pet kitten. According to People, 34-year-old Lucio Lopez allegedly put his cat in the freezer and then tossed her off of his balcony.

Luckily, the cat survived.

According to the police report, Lopez allegedly attacked the pet in his apartment shortly after 2:45 a.m. He was allegedly upset that the cat had walked into his apartment.
