Conspiracy theorist Lane Davis, who had previously interned for the controversial Breitbart editor and alt-right figurehead Milo Yiannopoulos, has been accused of the murder of his father, Charles Davis.
According to The New York Daily News, police received a call about Lane and his father involved in an altercation. Lane’s mother, who made the call, said her son was “ranting about stuff on the internet” and calling them both “leftists” and “pedophiles.”
“He’s not physically threatening us or anything,” Catherine told the dispatcher in the audio of a call obtained by the Daily Beast. “He just gets out of control and he’s ranting about stuff from the internet.”
A second call was made minutes later, with Lane’s mother now reporting that Lane’s father had been stabbed. Lane then walked outside, awaiting the arrival of police. A third call was made by Lane’s mother: “He’s dead, he’s dead, he’s dead.”

Law Order finally joined the party that other true-crime series have been hosting for years.
Law Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders continues the franchise’s long tradition of ripping from the headlines. Except this time, it’s a detailed, blow-by-blow retelling of a crime almost 30 years old. And it stars Edie Falco as all-star defense attorney Leslie Abramson.

Most people think the motive is money; the brothers went on a spending spree in the weeks following the deaths of their parents. Lyle Menendez maintained in a recent interview that he had been abused by his father but says he regrets it.
This isn’t the first time this saga has made it onscreen. The TV movie Menendez: A Killing in Beverly Hills, starring Edward James Olmos and Beverly D’Angelo, was

It’s still unclear what caused Minnesota police to shoot and kill 40-year-old Justine Damond. The Australian native called authorities about a possible sexual assault behind her home and ended up being shot by accident. According to the NY Daily News, a “loud sound” occurred moments before the cop fired the fatal shot.
The shot was fired by officer Mohamed Noor. Per a statement by the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) sent to the Daily News, Noor and his partner Matthew Harrity responded to Damond’s house around 11:30 p.m. on Saturday. Harrity, who was driving the squad car, said that he “was startled by a loud sound near the squad” right before Damond approached them.
