A bad first date could leave a Texas woman in prison. Lindy Lou Layman is charged with felony criminal mischief after allegedly destroying valuable art at the home of attorney Tony Buzbee on Dec. 23.
According to Buzbee, 29-year-old Layman became intoxicated during their first date at his home. Authorities believe that Layman hid in the mansion when 49-year-old Buzbee tried to call an Uber for her. She yelled “I’m not leaving,” before attacking the artwork. She became belligerent and destroyed two Warhol works (each valued at $500,000) by pouring red wine on them and breaking $20,000 sculptures. The damage is approximated at $300,000.
She denies the allegations. “We certainly disagree with Mr. Buzbee’s rendition of the facts when he spoke to the media, and we disagree with what was said in probable-cause court,” Layman’s lawyer, Justin Keiter, said, per The Dallas Morning News. He also called her a “great person.”
“She’s weathering the storm of the intense

There may be a new lead in the mysterious death of two teenage hikers.
According to People, authorities found a man threatening people with a hatchet in El Paso County, Colorado. They are now investigating a possible connection between the man, 31-year-old Daniel Nations, and the deaths of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams.
Nations was arrested on Monday after allegedly threatening several people with a hatchet near a trail in Colorado where a man was murdered two weeks earlier. Nations is a convicted sex offender.
In July, Indiana police released sketch of the suspect related to German and Williams’ death. “It will give people a clearer image of who we are looking for,” said Indiana State Police Sgt. Kim Riley. The sketch was partially drawn from surveillance video footage, which shows a blue jacket walking through the woods, as well as an anonymous tip from the police tip line.

Philadelphia police assisted Bucks County authorities in another search of Cosmo DiNardo’s family farm in Pennsylvania this week. DiNardo, 20, has confessed to killing four people on the farm, and he allegedly claimed to have killed two additional people.
Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub stated that officers, cadets, horses and dogs scoured the farm once again because “we want to make absolutely certain that we have not missed any evidence before departing,” according to NBC Philadelphia. On Thursday, crews loaded a motorized cart onto a flatbed truck.
Dinardo has confessed to murdering Jimi Taro Patrick, 19; Dean Finocchiaro, 19; Mark Sturgis, 22; and Tom Meo, 21.

Rob Kardashian could face jail time for posted naked photos of Blac Chyna online during his social media meltdown on Wednesday.
Attorney Lisa Bloom — who won a revenge porn case involving actress Mischa Barton last month — told the Daily News that Kardashian violated a revenge porn law, instituted in California in 2013.
“Revenge porn is illegal in CA and it certainly appears to me that Rob has violated this criminal law,” Bloom said.
That law defines revenge porn as a person having an image of an “intimate body part of another identifiable person, or an image of that person engaged in sexual intercourse, sodomy, oral copulation or masturbation” that is then intentionally distributed with the intention of causing emotional distress.
Kardashian could face six months in jail for misdemeanor charges stemming from the naked pictures, according to the LA Times.
Bloom said that Chyna could also sue for damages.
“Given that he

A major birth control error could lead to unexpected pregnancy. The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a nationwide recall of the contraception Mibelas 24 Fe due to a packaging mistake.
The FDA reveals that the pills were incorrectly placed, reversing the weekly layout and hiding the lot number and expiration date. The first four days of pills had placebo tablets instead of actual birth control.
This is a very significant problem if you’re tryng to prevent pregnancy.
The FDA warns: “As a result of this packaging error, oral contraceptive tablets that are taken out of sequence may place the user at risk for contraceptive failure and unintended pregnancy.” The FDA adds that the incorrect order may not be apparent to new or previous users of the contraception.
The drug manufacturer, Lupin, has issued a recall letter. If you are on Mibellas 24 Fe, you are asked to tell your doctor and return the pills

The exhumation of a Catholic priest’s body may help solve a decades old cold case murder of a nun.
According to CNN, the Baltimore County Police opened the grave of Rev. A. Joseph Maskell in February and took DNA samples from his corpse. The DNA is being checked against a DNA profile developed from evidence taken in 1970 from the decomposed body of Sister Catherine Ann Cesnik. Her body had been found by a father and son who were out hunting. The 26-year-old nun had been missing for almost two months.
The current team of cold case detectives assigned to Cesnik’s case in 2016, began discussing the exhumation of Maskell almost immediately. However, according to the report, it took time to get proper authorization.
