Woman Who Survived Month In Wilderness Finally Speaks Out: ‘I Couldn’t Even Hear Any Cars’

A missing woman feared dead showed up 28 days after she vanished, after surviving alone in the wilderness.

She lived off berries and mushrooms in the dense forest of rural Alabama.

Lisa Theris, 25,  was reported missing nearly a month ago, according to Alabama NBC affiliate WSFA. She had fled a hunting lodge after two men she was with committed a robbery. Theris, a radiology student and waitress, did not want to be an accessory.

Manley Davis, 31, and Randall Oswald, 36, stole $40,000 worth of items, including four-wheelers, ATVS, and chainsaws, the Daily Mail reported.

Last Saturday, a woman driving down a country road spotted a woman looking for help.

“I just passed a road and there’s a lady that, she came out of the woods naked and she’s been sick. She’s been in the woods for three weeks,” the caller told 911 dispatchers. Initially, she thought that Theris

DJ David Mueller Speaks Out After Losing Taylor Swift Groping Trial: ‘I Can Pass A Polygraph’

Following a guilty verdict, David Mueller maintains that he did not assault Taylor Swift.

According to E! News, the former DJ sat down with “Good Morning America to defend himself. He claims he never groped her and he’ll take a polygraph test to prove it.

“What I’m saying is that I didn’t do what they say I did. I didn’t do it. I never grabbed her. I never had my hand under her skirt and I can pass a polygraph,” he said.

Mueller says he touched the superstar’s ribs during a 2013 meet-and-greet in Colorado. “Because I was a larger person, I thought it would be a good idea if I closed my hand, so I didn’t poke Taylor with my fingers,” he testified.

She responded during her testimony by stating, “He did not touch my rib. He did not touch my arm. He did not touch my hand. He grabbed my bare ass.”

Mom Of Charlottesville Victim Killed By White Supremacist Speaks Out: ‘I Want Her Death To Be A Rallying Cry’

The mother of the woman murdered during the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend said her daughter’s death should be “a rallying cry for justice.”

Thirty-two-year-old Heather Heyer died after a man plowed his car into a crowd of counter-protesters.

“Heather was not about hate, Heather was about stopping hatred,” Susan Bro, Heyer’s mother told HuffPost. “Heather was about bringing an end to injustice. I don’t want her death to be a focus for more hatred, I want her death to be a rallying cry for justice and equality and fairness and compassion.”

Twenty-year-old James Alex Fields Jr. has been arrested for the attack. He was photographed demonstrating at the rally, carrying symbols of Vanguard America, a white nationalist group.

Federal law enforcement are conducting a civil rights investigation into the incident, which has been called an act of domestic terrorism by numerous politicians and officials. The incident injured 19 others.

Google Employee Fired Over Viral Anti-Diversity Manifesto Speaks Out: ‘I’m Not A Sexist’

After being terminated from Google, engineer James Damore is speaking out about allegations that he’s sexist.

The 28-year-old’s “anti-diversity manifesto”—a lengthy memo that outlined his reasoning that there are genetic differences in women that explain their underrepresention in Silicon Valley—went viral and was met with criticism within and outside Google.

As The Washington Post shares, Damore has given interviews since his termination to defend his stance and reputation. “I’m not saying that any of the female engineers at Google are in any way worse than the average male engineer,” Damore told Stefan Molyneux, host of “Freedomain Radio.” “I’m just saying that this may explain some of the disparity in representation in the population.”

He then told Bloomberg TV, “The whole point of my memo was to improve Google and Google’s culture and they just punished me and shamed me for doing it,” he said. “I’m not a sexist.”

Damore filed a complaint with the National Labor

Former Cheerleader Who Hired Hitman To Kill Dad Speaks Out On His Murder: ‘I Was Glad He Was Gone’

In 1986, Cheryl Pierson was a 15-year-old high school cheerleader who was being sexually abused by her father. 

“The more I fought, the more violent it got, so at that point, at 15 years old, I just let him do what he wanted to do just to be done with it,” she told Inside Edition. The teenager then came up with the idea of hiring another student to kill her father.

She asked Sean Pica to do the deed on February 6, 1986. “How much money would you do it for?” she asked him. Pica asked for $1,000 but received $400. He killed the father on his driveway in Long Island anyway.

“For the first time in my life, I felt safe…I was glad he was gone,” Pierson says.

The hit wasn’t kept secret for long. Pierson’s boyfriend, Rob Cuccio, broke down and revealed the details to authorities. Pierson’s story made headlines and even

Dad Speaks Out After Daughter Dies Of Overdose While Driving With Kids In Backseat

The father of a woman who died behind the wheel of a fentanyl overdose alongside her husband—while her children were in the backseat—is speaking out after Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed a law enacting harsher penalties for drug traffickers last Thursday.

Heather Kelsey, 30, and Daniel Kelsey, 32, were found on the side of the road after snorting a powder that they likely believed was heroin on New Year’s Eve last year, the Orlando Sentinel reports. The drug was actually fentanyl, a synthetic drug that is cheaper and deadlier than heroin.

Their children were in the backseat of the car and had likely been there for more than 3 hours before police found them, the Sentinel said.

The children, ages 5, 2, and 1, live with Heather’s father, Mike Belisle, and his wife. 

“I think at this point they really do know that they’re gone and they’re not coming back. They have
