A teenager slashed a woman to death as he attempted to steal $6 off her—to buy beer. The 16-year-old boy, Alan Tanguay, now faces a first degree murder charge over the death of 58-year-old Patricia Kaliszeski from Palm Bay, Florida.

Tanguay told investigators he was approached by Kaliszeski with a knife as he was burgling the house. He took it from her and used it to attack her, before hitting her over the head with a lamp.

Tanguay is currently being held in a juvenile holding area but he could face an adult charge over the incident.

When police accessed his account on a social networking web site, they found statements describing how he enjoys gory violence, “like people getting their neck slit and tounge [sic] pulled out”.

One witness told police that the teenager claimed to have killed before and also that “he has a rule—if he finds someone in the house during a burglary, he has to kill them”.

It is not known whether Tanguay has already appeared in court or when he is scheduled to appear, according to police.

Hundreds of victims still unidentified three months after Typhoon Frank

Hundreds of victims still unidentified three months after Typhoon Frank

Typhoon Frank stormed across the Philippine Sea June 21, 2008 capsizing numerous boats, killing hundreds and leaving an estimated 1,330 missing in total including 820 passengers and crew from the MV Princess of the Stars ferry.

A Requiem Mass held for the first 10 DNA-assisted identifications of victims of the Philippines ferry disaster

Since then Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) teams in Cebu City, Philippines made up of experts from the Philippines National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP). and INTERPOL have painstakingly matched DNA from recovered bodies to that of blood samples donated by relatives of those still missing.

Analysis of DNA in ICMP’s Sarajevo lab

“The 23,000-ton vessel was also carrying tens of thousands of pounds of commercial insecticide and many bodies still remain trapped inside the wreckage” according to a recent press release from the ICMP.

“With fingerprint identification out of the question for most of the victims, and dental records not available, this leaves only DNA as a means of identification, with samples from recovered victims matched to those provided by the missing passengers’ relatives.”

An NBI-DVI report explains “DNA matches are made by comparing profiles from victims to a database of profiles from their relatives. A minimum of two close relatives [are] sought for each individual.”

NBI-DVI has so far collected 1,916 blood samples from relatives of missing victims representing 809 missing persons. These samples are then matched against the 318 DNA samples from recovered bodies received by the ICMP.

“Almost three months have passed since our country was struck by one of the worst typhoons in memory, with ‘Frank’ causing the sinking of the Princess of the Stars with hundreds of passengers and crew on board,” said NBI Director Nestor M. Mantaring in the press release.

“The NBI, through its DVI team, was tasked [with identifying] the victims of this tragedy. With help from INTERPOL and the ICMP, we have reached the 100th DNA-matched result which led to the identification and release of the bodies to their respective families.

“We are committed to doing this until the last possible victim is identified and returned to their family,” he concluded.

George Bush making the statement at 12:45 UTC today.

George W. Bush vowed to get the USD 700 billion economic rescue plan through congress in a statement to the media made today.

“Yesterday, the House of Representatives voted on a financial rescue plan that had been negotiated by Congressional leaders of both parties and my administration,” Bush reminded the audience. “Unfortunately, the measure was defeated by a narrow margin. I’m disappointed by the outcome, but I assure our citizens and citizens around the world that this is not the end of the legislative process.”

“Producing legislation is complicated, and it can be contentious. It matters little what a path a bill takes to become law,” he continued. “We’re at a critical moment for our economy, and we need legislation that decisively address the troubled assets now clogging the financial system, helps lenders resume the flow of credit to consumers and businesses, and allows the American economy to get moving again.”

“I recognize this is a difficult vote for members of Congress. Many of them don’t like the fact that our economy has reached this point, and I understand that. But the reality is that we are in an urgent situation, and the consequences will grow worse each day if we do not act. The dramatic drop in the stock market that we saw yesterday will have a direct impact on the retirement accounts, pension funds, and personal savings of millions of our citizens. And if our nation continues on this course, the economic damage will be painful and lasting.” World and US markets today are up after severe declines yesterday. Most have recovered 30% of their previous losses, meaning that the potential government expenditure was similar to the market losses.

Bush then said that he knows “many Americans are especially worried about the cost of the legislation.” He then attempted to justify the cost. “The bill the House considered yesterday commits up to 700 billion taxpayer dollars to purchase troubled assets from banks and other financial institutions. That, no question, is a large amount of money. We’re also dealing with a large problem. But to put that in perspective, the drop in the stock market yesterday represented more than a trillion dollars in losses.”

If passed, the bailout plan would have allowed for the United States government to purchase devalued mortgage backed securities, resulting from the subprime mortgage crisis, from troubled financial institutions. The US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said the plan could cost up to $700 billion.

Nebraskateacher must sentenced to 6 years for sex with student

Filed under: Crime and law,North America,Rape,Review,United States — admin @ 5:00 am

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

A former Nebraska teacher has been sentenced to 6 years in prison for traveling to Mexico with a 13-year-old boy to have sex with him. The woman, Kelsey Peterson, took the boy to Mexico when he was 12 in October 2006. The woman was arrested in Mexico when the boy called his family.

The woman taught a math class at Lexington Middle School in Lexington, Nebraska during the 2005-2006 school year. Peterson was charged with kidnapping and first degree sexual assault. Peterson claimed that the boy Peterson’s attorney said claimed that the boy’s birth certificate was possibly forged or doctored and that the boy was in fact at least 16.

Given time already served and possibility of good behavior, Peterson could be released in four years. However, her conviction was on federal charges and she may still be prosecuted on state charges.

The child was an illegal immigrant at the time and has been put on humanitarian parole. The child’s attorney wants to give the boy and his family a visa, and eventually to have citizenship in the United States.

Italian police conduct mass arrest of mobsters

Filed under: Disputed — admin @ 5:00 am

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

Italian police made a mass arrest of mobsters Tuesday, including three men suspected of murdering six African immigrants. During the raid, police also found disguises, $143.5 million, and weapons, which police believe were used to kill the six victims.

The mobsters were part of the powerful Camorra mob, who police believed murdered the immigrants in an act of terrorism.

500 Italian soldiers will patrol the area of Caserta to seek more mobster operations and quiet riots in response to the murders.

Over 100 people died in a massive stampede at the Chamunda Devi temple Jodhpur, in the western state of Rajasthan, India. 168 people were killed, with just as many injured. A temple wall collapsed, causing panic among ten of thousands of gathered Hindu worshippers who then began to run for safety, causing the stampede. Several are still believed to be trapped under the rubble.

According to Malini Agarwal, a Jodhpur police officer, over 10,000 Hindus had gathered at a temple to perform their religious rites. Most of the injured have been transported to the nearest hospital and appeals were being made for the remaining pilgrims to be calm and peaceful.

In August another deadly incident resulting from a stampede occurred in the second day of a nine-day religious festival at the Naina Devi Temple in Himachal Pradesh state; more than 130 people were killed due to panic in Northern India.

Another incident in January 2005 saw more then 250 Hindu worshippers killed in a stampede near a remote temple in the state of Maharashtra.
