Teacher Accused Of Taping Student With Cerebral Palsy’s Mouth Shut, Locking Her In Bathroom For ‘Gargling Her Spit’

A Michigan mother brought a lawsuit against her daughter’s school after a teacher allegedly taped her disabled daughter’s mouth shut and locked her in a bathroom, The Washington Post reported.

But the school district said that Smith did not report any complaints to the school until a year after the alleged abuse occurred.

Doreen Smith alleges in the lawsuit that in March 2016, she received a text message from her daughter’s teacher with a photo showing the girl, who has cerebral palsy, with four pieces of tape covering her mouth.

“Help. She won’t be quiet!!!!” the teacher wrote in the text messages.

Several months later, Smith claims that her daughter, Rosa Smith, was locked in a school bathroom for several hours to punish the girl for “gargling her spit.”

And in February, the lawsuit claims, a school bus driver saw an employee slap Rosa the face more than once.

Smith alleged that her daughter

Murder Charge Filed For Nebraska Student Who Went Missing After Party 7 Years Ago

A nearly 7-year-old cold case is coming to resolution after the Nebraska Attorney General announced an arrest in a missing persons investigation at Peru State College, the Associated Press reported.

Joshua Keadle, 36, was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Tyler “Ty” Thomas, who was a 19-year-old freshman when she disappeared after leaving a campus party in late 2010.

Authorities said that Keadle, another student at the school, admitted that he had had sex with Thomas in his car that night, and that Thomas threatened to report that he had raped her.

In the weeks before Thomas’s disappearance, administrators discussed disciplining Keadle for reportedly sexual harassing women who lived near him in a co-ed dormitory on campus.

Thomas was declared dead by the state in 2013, though her remains were never found. Authorities would not say whether this recent arrest was prompted by the discovery of her body or any additional

College Student Trapped In Cave For Nearly 3 Days Survives By Licking The Walls

A college freshman says he survived a 60-hour stay inside a locked Indiana cave by licking the wall. 

Indiana University freshman Lukas Cavar, 19, was on a spelunking trip with 12 others from the school’s caving club to Sullivan Cave, located 10 miles away from Bloomington. At some point in the exploration of the cave, Cavar separated from the group. According to CBS News, club members had padlocked the cave’s gate. Because there was no cell phone signal, the teen reportedly screamed for hours, hoping that somebody on nearby road might hear him.

“It took me a little while to wrangle my emotions and sort of approach things analytically, sensibly, to come up with a game plan to survive,” Cavar said Thursday.

He was rescued on Tuesday. He attempted to pick the padlock with a paper clip, with no success. To survive, he used energy bar wrappers to collect moisture and the

18-Year-Old Law Student Dies After 5 Bags Of Ecstasy Explode In Her Stomach

A British law student vacationing in Ibiza died after five bags of ecstasy exploded in her stomach, the New York Post reported.

Rebecca Brock, 18, was discovered next to a pool of blood in a hotel room on the infamous Spanish island. 

The amount of ecstasy in her system was double the level of a lethal dose, police stated.

Brock’s mother, Margarita Brock, said that she believed her daughter was forced to be a drug mule after investigators found five plastic bags in her stomach.

“Spanish authorities say five bags were found which were wrapped with elastic bands,” Brock said, according to the Post. “They said it would probably have been four hours before something happened.”

Brock said her daughter had tried cocaine in the past, but she hadn’t liked it. “She was very clear about what she let into her body and what she didn’t,” Brock said.

She thinks this is why her daughter must
