Texarkana native, former homicide detective, feels the ‘Price of Duty’

For nearly three decades, Danny J. Agan enforced the law in Atlanta, Ga., including conducting homicide investigations in a city at one time considered the murder capital of the nation.

Of all the cases Agan worked, it was the investigation of a serial rapist that became one of the most memorable and haunting of his career. It involved a perpetrator who manipulated victims and, in one instance, seemed to taunt the police face-to-face.

Agan, a Texarkana native who lived here the first dozen years of his life, rose through the ranks to retire in 2003 as the Atlanta Police Department homicide commander.

In his long and storied career, he was a high profile, fedora-wearing presence, often appearing on TV to give press briefings, and on some level he dealt with 800 murders, whether directly or through his detectives. His job included some early investigative work on cases that involved Wayne Williams, a convicted

Former FBI Profiler Explains Why It Took So Long To Find Caylee Anthony’s Body

In the summer of 2008, 2-year-old Caylee Anthony vanished from her home in Orlando, Florida. Her mother, Casey Anthony, didn’t report Caylee missing until a month later, and she was initially arrested for child neglect. In December 2008, Caylee’s skeletal remains were discovered in a wooded area near the family home.

The courtroom battle that played out over the following months was dubbed “the social media trial of the century” – and ended in Casey being acquitted on charges of first-degree murder,  manslaughter and child abuse.

On Saturday, May 19 at 8/7c, Oxygen will reexamine the toddler’s tragic death in a new three-part series, “The Case of: Caylee Anthony.” Alongside a team of investigators and forensic experts, former NYC prosecutor and retired FBI supervisory special agent Jim Clemente and former New Scotland Yard criminal behavioral analyst Laura Richards will comb over the evidence to try to find out what led to the toddler’s

‘Catfish’ Suspended After Former Guest Accuses Nev Schulman Of Sexual Misconduct

MTV halted production on the popular reality program “Catfish” this week after a former guest accused the show’s host, Nev Schulman, of sexual misconduct.

He denies the allegations.

An MTV spokesperson said there is an investigation into the incident, and that the show is on hiatus indefinitely.

“We take these allegations very seriously,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “We’re working with Critical Content, our third party production company, to conduct a thorough investigation, and we’ve put a pause on shooting until the investigation is completed.”

In a pair of YouTube videos posted on May 12 and 15, Ayissha Morgan, who appeared on the show in 2015, claimed that Schulman and another crew member sexually harassed her throughout the production. Morgan, who is a lesbian, said that Schulman questioned her sexuality while propositioning her. Morgan also said he later invited her to have sex in a hotel room.

Former Playboy Model And 7-Year-Old Son Plunge To Death From Manhattan Hotel

A former Playboy model in the middle of a custody battle fell to her death along with her 7-year-old son in Manhattan, according to police.

Stephanie Adams and her son Vincent plunged 23 floors from the penthouse of the Gotham Hotel near Grand Central Terminal on Thursday night in a suspected suicide jump. They were found on a second-floor balcony Friday morning, officials told the Associated Press. Adams was in the middle of a custody fight with her estranged husband Charles Nicolai, a Manhattan chiropractor.

Lawyer Raoul Felder, who represented Adams until a few months ago, told the wire service that it was “a very tough custody case,” and explained that Adams and Nicolai would bring their child to a police precinct when he changed custody from her house to his.

“She was never depressed while I knew her. She had certain problems, but depression wasn’t one of them,” Felder said.

Pennsylvania Teacher Suspended Over Alleged Relationship With Former Student Found Shot Dead

A Pennsylvania teacher, recently suspended for an alleged relationship with one of her former students, was shot to death in her mother’s driveway on Mother’s Day.

Rachael DelTondo, 32, was shot multiple times and she died on the scene. She was returning from a trip to buy ice cream with a friend, KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh reported.  She was “brutally shot at close range multiple times,” in the Aliquippa driveway, Beaver County District Attorney David Lozier told Newsweek.

Police haven’t released the name or description of the suspect, who is still at large. Lozier was mum about who the suspect could be but he did reveal that he believes DelTondo knew her killer. He also said he thinks the murder was a crime of passion and that residents do not have to worry for their own safety.

DelTondo was suspended last year from her teaching job at Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School, a

Former College Football Player Convicted Of Killing Ex-Girlfriend In Her Sleep

A former college football player was convicted Tuesday of murdering his teenage ex-girlfriend by firing two shots through her bedroom wall while she slept.

A Knoxville jury deliberated for four hours before finding William Riley Gaul, 19, guilty of first-degree murder for killing Emma Walker, 16. Gaul was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for 51 years.

In the courtroom, people gasped after the verdict was read, according to WBIR-10 in Knoxville.

Gaul, a former Division III freshman wide receiver at Maryville College, had been free on bond. Friends and family of Walker, a former cheerleader, hugged outside of the courtroom after he was taken into custody.

“Today is about justice for Emma Walker and her family,” Knox County District Attorney Charme Allen said, according to WBIR-10.

Gaul and Walker were high school sweethearts who met at Central High School in Knoxville and dated for about two years. Gaul had just finished his freshman year

Long Island Man Busted With Weapons Stockpile After Threatening His Former School

Police on Saturday seized a stockpile of military gear and illegal weapons from the home of a Long Island pizza delivery man who called in threats to his former high school.

Robert Csak, 32, faces more than a dozen weapons charges after police raided his Lindenhurst home. Suffolk County police said they found 19 firearms in the home, including nine illegal assault weapons, as well as high capacity magazines, military and ballistics equipment and night vision goggles. One of the assault rifles had a bump stock, the device that makes rifles fire automatically, which was used by the gunman who killed 58 people and wounded more than 500 hundred in the Las Vegas shooting last October.

Police said Csak left a half-dozen threats on the voicemail box for Summit School, which helps students with emotional and behavior issues. He attended the school in 2002. Csak has worked as a pizza deliveryman and,

Former Army Paratrooper Convicted Of Killing Wife, Burying Her In Shallow Grave

It took a jury minutes to convict a Maine man of murder on Monday for killing his wife and burying her body behind his parents house – in a shallow grave along with a note signed with his nick-name, a wedding band, flowers, a bag of potato chips, a box of SweeTarts and bottle of Gucci women’s perfume called Guilty.

Luc Tieman, 34, a former Army paratrooper who saw combat in Iraq, according to his lawyer, was convicted of murder for shooting his wife, Valerie, twice in the head with .45 caliber pistol in August, 2016. He now faces 25 years in prison, according to CentralMaine.com, a news website.

Police and prosecutors believe Tieman killed his wife on August 25, 2016, a day before he moved in with another woman he met at a pool party and referred to as his “rebound girl,” according to prosecutors.

Valerie Tieman’s mother, Sarajean Harmon, last spoke to
