Harvard says it received $8.9M in donations from Jeffrey Epstein

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-67651685ee9a4829b80f3d6a6aee10de Harvard says it received $8.9M in donations from Jeffrey Epstein Melissa Leon fox-news/us/education/college fox-news/us/crime/sex-crimes fox-news/person/jeffrey-epstein fox news fnc/us fnc c55d4cff-d9ad-5fe2-b5e7-08af94713c18 article

Harvard University received nearly $9 million in donations from convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein over a nine-year period, the Ivy League university’s president disclosed in an email Thursday night.

The disgraced financier, who was found hanging in his prison cell and later declared dead Aug. 10, gave $6.5 million to Harvard’s Program for Evolutionary Dynamics and made other gifts totaling $2.4 million between 1998 and 2007, University President Lawrence S. Bacow said.

“Each of these gifts from Epstein and his affiliated foundations to Harvard University predates his guilty plea in June 2008,” Bacow said. “To date, we have uncovered no gifts received from Epstein or his foundation following his guilty plea. Moreover, we specifically rejected a gift from Epstein following his conviction in 2008.”

MIT MEDIA LAB DIRECTOR RESIGNS AFTER REPORT ON FINANCIAL TIES TO JEFFREY EPSTEIN

Epstein pleaded guilty to a child prostitution charge in 2008 and registered as a sex offender. He agreed to a plea deal and served nearly 13 months in jail with work-release privileges, which meant he could work in his office six days a week.

Joichi Ito, director of the Media Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), resigned Saturday after it was revealed he accepted $525,000 in donations from Epstein after his guilty plea in 2008, according to a report by The New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow.

When he died, Epstein, 66, was awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges. His death was ruled a suicide. Prosecutors alleged that Epstein paid girls as young as 14 hundreds of dollars for massages before molesting them in his homes in New York and Palm Beach, Fla, between 2002 and 2005.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN FLEW TO VIRGIN ISLANDS WITH 11-, 12-YEAR-OLD GIRLS IN 2018, WITNESS SAYS

“Epstein’s reported criminal actions were utterly abhorrent,” Bacow said Thursday. “They flagrantly offend the values of our society and this institution, and we condemn them.”

Bacow added that while most of Epstein’s gifts to Harvard were not endowed funds and were spent “years ago for their intended purposes in support of research and education,” the university found a current fund that was still in use.

“One small endowment” for the Faculty of Arts and Sciences has an unspent balance of $186,000, which Bacow said will be redirected “to organizations that support victims of human trafficking and sexual assault.”

“This is an unusual step for the university, but we have decided it is the proper course of action under the circumstances,” he noted.

A former faculty member, Stephen Kosslyn, designated Epstein as a visiting fellow in the Department of Psychology in 2005, and the university is “seeking to learn more about the nature of that appointment,” Bacow said.

A review of Epstein’s donations to Harvard is ongoing, according to the university.

The Justice Department and FBI are still investigating the circumstances of Epstein’s death.

Maryland authorities arrest three more suspects in deadly stabbing tied to MS-13

Authorities in Baltimore County, Md., said Thursday that three more people have been arrested in connection with a fatal Jtabbing in July that’s been linked to the MS-13 street gang.

Cockeysville residents Hugo Leonel Martinez-Vasquez, 22, Jose Alexi Villacorta-Rivas, 19, and Yoni Membreno-Parada, 17, have all been charged with first-degree murder and are being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center, police said.

Last week, police arrested and charged seven people in connection with the murder of 21-year-old Daniel Alejandro Alvarado Cuellar on July 30. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said Tuesday that six of those seven people were part of MS-13 and in the country illegally.

The immigration status of the three suspects arrested Thursday was unclear at the time of publication.

Baltimore County Police said Cueller was stabbed in the Towson area while walking home from a laundry. His body was found July 31 in the grass outside an apartment building, with “multiple sharp-force injuries,” officials said.

Nearly two weeks later, police in Mississippi arrested the occupants of a white 2008 Dodge Caliber during a traffic stop, The Baltimore Sun reported. They said they matched the occupants to suspects seen in surveillance footage from the night of the murder.

Investigators then matched a suspect in the surveillance video to police bodycam footage from a traffic stop of the Caliber several days before the murder, according to The Sun.

Authorities have attributed the killing to a gang war involving MS-13. Police say they don’t anticipate more arrests.

Senegalese man admits using dead American’s ID for more than 30 years

A Senegalese national living in Southern California pleaded guilty Thursday to impersonating a dead American citizen for 31 years to net thousands of dollars in federal, state and local government benefits, according to federal prosecutors.

Almamy Baba Ly, who was living in La Mesa,  admitted in San Diego federal court to identity theft charges, acknowledging that he misused the identity of Lyle Lindsey, who died in a car accident as a toddler in 1957, to obtain identification documents.

As part of his plea, Ly admitted that he was born in Senegal and did not have legal status to live in the U.S.

CALIFORNIA DIVE BOAT FIRE INVESTIGATORS EXECUTE SEARCH WARRANTS, SEIZE RECORDS

Federal prosecutors said Ly, who was arrested in July, somehow obtained an altered copy of Lindsey’s birth certificate and used it to apply for a Social Security number, California identification card and driver’s license.

Ly also said he used Lindsey’s identity to apply for and receive more than $80,000 in federal student loans and Pell grants from 2012 until 2019, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. In his plea agreement, Ly also admitted to applying for nutrition assistance programs, getting thousands of dollars in benefits that he was not legally entitled to receive.

Also, Ly was convicted of several crimes, including robbery and selling drugs, under Lindsey’s identity, prosecutors said.

“This was an especially sophisticated and devious fraud that victimized U.S. taxpayers for decades and forced a family to revisit a traumatic loss,” U.S. Attorney Robert Brewer said. “Finding out that someone is committing crimes in the name of a child who was lost many years ago brings unacceptable anxiety to his survivors.”

Ly’s attorney, Jeremy Delicino, did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Prosecutors said as a part of his plea agreement, Ly agreed to make full restitution to the U.S. Department of Education and to the County of San Diego for the more than $88,000 in benefits that he fraudulently received.

He faces up to 55 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $1 million when he is sentenced in December.

Michigan cop who had KKK memorabilia in home is fired

A Michigan police officer who was put on leave after a potential homebuyer found Ku Klux Klan memorabilia in the officer’s house was fired Thursday following an investigation.

Muskegon City Manager Frank Peterson told MLive.com that Officer Charles Anderson had been let go following an inquiry and a disciplinary hearing.

Peterson said a redacted version of the inquiry report would be released to the public next week.

The investigation was prompted when Rob Mathis, who is black, and his wife were touring Peterson’s home last month, with an eye toward a possible purchase. They reportedly found a framed KKK membership application hanging on a wall, along with Confederate flags.

“In the bedroom, right across … there was a plaque up there, all by itself,” Mathis told a local news outlet.

He described what he saw in a viral Facebook post that prompted city officials to look into the matter. The inquiry was intended to determine whether Anderson, who is white, violated city policy.

“Some questions arose that we’d like to have further answered,” Muskegon Police Chief Jeffrey Lewis told city commissioners during an Aug. 27 meeting to announce the end of the inquiry. “But I can tell you this, after reviewing this — and it was a quite lengthy investigation — what you saw on social media pretty much stands the way it is.”

“There was no smoking gun revealed to us or anything that shocked us,” he added.

Anderson had been on the force since 1997. He was cleared of wrongdoing in the 2009 fatal shooting of an unarmed black man following an investigation.

report by then-Muskegon County Prosecutor Tony Tague found that Julius Johnson hit Anderson in the head with a police radio and “another blunt object” and noted that Anderson was forced to get a metal plate installed in his head.

Mathis said he was “glad the city was moving forward in a positive direction.” He also said Anderson’s firing would do little to change a police culture where officers protect each other and fail to hold one another accountable, MLive reported.

“There are other officers within the police force that have been to Anderson’s home and were well aware of the Confederate flags,” Mathis claimed. “[Officers who] contributed to that behavior, instead of saying we as a police force are supposed to have good attitudes when making decisions for our community.

“These KKK applications, flags, they’re not indicative of people who should protect and serve our community.”

Maryland hotel room fight actually just loud sex, woman says before allegedly getting in fight with guard

The sounds of two women engaged in what those nearby believed to be a fight inside a Maryland hotel room Monday reportedly led to a surprising sexual confession, a visit from police and gunfire.

When two employees at the Days Inn in Towson received a call from one of the hotel’s rooms, they heard in the background a commotion — that they said sounded like fighting — leading the business’ security guard to call police.

Officers responded to the hotel room, and spoke with two women who were reportedly staying there — but they said they weren’t fighting, they were just having sex, according to WMAR.

The women were subsequently ordered to leave the hotel. After they left, one of the women went back to the room for a forgotten cell phone, while the other allegedly began to fight with hotel staff.

That’s when it’s alleged that Allison Daughtrey, 34, pulled out a gun and pointed it at the hotel’s security guard, who reportedly tried to take the gun away and wrestle Daughtrey to the ground. During the chaotic scene, the gun fired and hit a door frame.

A police officer from Baltimore County who was nearby and heard the gunshot ran into the Days Inn and arrested Daughtrey — who allegedly bit the security guard during the incident.

Daughtrey denied she purposely fired the gun, telling The Baltimore Sun: “If I intended to ever use the gun, I would never have missed the target.”

Daughtrey was charged with attempted second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault and gun crimes. She’s scheduled to appear in court Oct. 4.

Fugitive in Massachusetts killing stabs self in neck during arrest at Florida construction site, authorities say

A two-year manhunt for the most wanted fugitive in Massachusetts ended at a construction site in Florida on Wednesday when a suspect accused of killing his ex-girlfriend in her apartment in 2017 was taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals Service and Florida police officers.

But Cornel Bell, 48, had to be hospitalized because he stabbed himself in the neck with a box cutter during a brief chase, Boston’s WFXT-TV reported. He was in stable condition Wednesday evening.

Authorities say Bell used fake names while on the lam, looking to avoid prosecution for alleged crimes dating back two decades. He was finally tracked down in Dania Beach, Fla., about 24 miles north of Miami, Wednesday morning, Norfolk District Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

Cornell Bell, 48, seen in an undated photo, was arrested in Florida on Wednesday after eluding capture in connection with the death of his ex-girlfriend in Massachusetts. (Norfolk District Attorney’s office)

Bell was indicted in October 2017 on a charge that he killed his 33-year-old ex-girlfriend Michelle Clarke in her apartment in Weymouth, Mass., two months earlier. Police found her body around 4 a.m. Aug. 19, 2017, after a friend called to express concern for her safety. Clarke had a 6-year-old son who was staying with family members at the time of the murder.

During the two-year manhunt, investigators determined Bell, who is believed to be originally from Jamaica, obtained several different Social Security numbers and driver’s licenses using fake names, Boston’s WCVB-TV reported. He was later found to be the subject of three additional warrants under different aliases, including one for assault with intent to murder in 1997 and another for armed robbery in 2002, according to Patch.

Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey said authorities centered their search on Florida after a dark blue pickup truck linked to Bell was found abandoned in the Miami area. The district attorney’s office said authorities received a tip that led them to the Dania Beach site.

“Massachusetts State Police, both in the Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section and the homicide detectives in the DA’s office, have been working tirelessly on finding Mr. Bell and bringing him into custody,” Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey said in a statement. “VFAS has been working closely with the United States Marshal Service, identifying and following any trace of his whereabouts.”

Police in Weymouth, Fort Lauderdale and Coral Springs, as well as the Broward County Sheriff’s Department, assisted in the investigation, MassLive reported. The district attorney’s office said it was working with several agencies to arrange Bell’s extradition to Massachusetts for arraignment at a later date.

NYPD cops chase pot smokers, find kidnapped man beaten, bound in store basement

A man was found beaten and bound in the basement of a Bronx bodega when two cops who were chasing separate suspects entered the cellar early Wednesday morning, police said.

The cops ran into the bodega on Bussing Avenue near Digney Avenue in Wakefield at about 2 a.m. on Wednesday while they were chasing two suspects who had been smoking pot on a nearby street corner, authorities said.

While they were searching for the suspects in the store, an employee let them into the basement, where they discovered the kidnapped 49-year-old, cops said.

Richard Millwood (DCPI)

DNA LEADS TO IDENTITY OF SUSPECT IN 1972 MURDER OF CALIFORNIA GIRL, 11

The officers freed the man, who then told them he had been kidnapped three days prior by four people on a Bronx street corner, police said.

The victim — who sources said has a lengthy arrest record — said the four suspects forced him into a car near East 234 Street and White Plains Road in Wakefield at about 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, cops said.

They then drove him to the deli, brought him to the basement, beat him and chained him to a pole, he told police.

Cops arrested the owner of the deli, 49-year-old Orinthia Gifford, and charged her with kidnapping, unlawful imprisonment, menacing, criminal possession of a weapon and harassment for her role in the caper, authorities said.

Gifford’s 26-year-old daughter, who did not give her name, said Wednesday night she was shocked to hear about her mother’s kidnapping arrest, but knew her mother had been involved with “fugitives.”

“I know she got caught up with something to do with some fugitives. They chased them in here and I guess since she’s the owner, they took her in,” she said.

Police believe the kidnapped man knew all of the suspects who abducted him, authorities said. They were investigating if the kidnapping was connected to a drug-dealing operation, sources said.

Investigators identified the store employee who let the police into the basement as 35-year-old Richard Millwood. He is wanted in connection to the kidnapping.

He’s about 5-foot-10 and 200 pounds and was last seen wearing all black, cops said.

NYPD cops chase pot smokers, find kidnapped man beaten, bound in store basement

A man was found beaten and bound in the basement of a Bronx bodega when two cops who were chasing separate suspects entered the cellar early Wednesday morning, police said.

The cops ran into the bodega on Bussing Avenue near Digney Avenue in Wakefield at about 2 a.m. on Wednesday while they were chasing two suspects who had been smoking pot on a nearby street corner, authorities said.

While they were searching for the suspects in the store, an employee let them into the basement, where they discovered the kidnapped 49-year-old, cops said.

DNA LEADS TO IDENTITY OF SUSPECT IN 1972 MURDER OF CALIFORNIA GIRL, 11

The officers freed the man, who then told them he had been kidnapped three days prior by four people on a Bronx street corner, police said.

The victim — who sources said has a lengthy arrest record — said the four suspects forced him into a car near East 234 Street and White Plains Road in Wakefield at about 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, cops said.

They then drove him to the deli, brought him to the basement, beat him and chained him to a pole, he told police.

Cops arrested the owner of the deli, 49-year-old Orinthia Gifford, and charged her with kidnapping, unlawful imprisonment, menacing, criminal possession of a weapon and harassment for her role in the caper, authorities said.

Gifford’s 26-year-old daughter, who did not give her name, said Wednesday night she was shocked to hear about her mother’s kidnapping arrest, but knew her mother had been involved with “fugitives.”

“I know she got caught up with something to do with some fugitives. They chased them in here and I guess since she’s the owner, they took her in,” she said.

Police believe the kidnapped man knew all of the suspects who abducted him, authorities said. They were investigating if the kidnapping was connected to a drug-dealing operation, sources said.

Investigators identified the store employee who let the police into the basement as 35-year-old Richard Millwood. He is wanted in connection to the kidnapping.

He’s about 5-foot-10 and 200 pounds and was last seen wearing all black, cops said.
