A Washington state man who received a heart transplant last year said surveillance cameras captured the moment a stranger stole life-saving medication from his doorstep last week.

‘PORCH PIRATES’ RETURN STOLEN WRESTLING BELTS TO BOY WITH AUTISM AHEAD OF BRAIN SURGERY

Ron Kraft, of Pierce County, said he needs to take medication every 12 hours since receiving a transplant in 2018 after his heart failed, Seattle’s KIRO-TV reported.

“If I don’t, my body starts rejecting my heart and things just start going all wrong,”  Kraft said.  “It’s life or death.”

Kraft called the pharmacy last Tuesday when he did not see the package that he expected to be delivered to his home. When the pharmacy confirmed the medication had been delivered, Kraft said he checked his home security cameras.  The surveillance video shows a man approach Kraft’s home with his dog, snag the package from his back doorstep and then walk away.

Kraft was able to get an emergency supply of medication from the pharmacy directly. He’s asking the porch pirate to come forward with the stolen package. It was unclear from reporting if a police report had been filed.

On June 7, Formisano filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.

Formisano “went in the front door,” Thomas Verrone, a retired sheriff’s officer and a neighbor told the paper. “He shot the boyfriend three times and he shot the wife two times. She ran out of that house, went to next-door neighbor banging on the door, yelling she had been shot. But it was late at night so no one answered.”

He said Formisano followed her to a neighbor’s house and shot her several more times. “She fell there,” he said.

Formisano allegedly said he went to the house to drop off something when he suspected there was another man in the home. He allegedly told detectives he “blacked out” before he shot the victims.

A 6-year-old Utah girl died Monday after her father accidentally hit her with a golf ball, investigators said.

The two were at the Sleepy Ridge golf course in Orem when Aria Hill was struck by a ball in the back of her neck while sitting in a golf cart, Orem police Lt. Trent Colledge said.

She was flown to a hospital in Salt Lake City in critical condition and died from her injuries hours later. The girl’s uncle said Hill often went golfing with her father.

“She loved doing it and had a good time with it all,” David Smith told the Deseret News. “That was one of their things that they would do together. It was something that was really important to them and something they did all the time.”

A pilot of a small plane landed the aircraft on the waters off a Maryland beach Tuesday but was not hurt, police said.

Trevor H. Deihl, 23, of Reedville, Va., told officials he’d been flying his single-engine Cessna 172RG when the plane started having engine problems, Maryland State Police said.

Jeffrey Epstein’s mysterious passport is Austrian, was needed for ‘personal protection,’ attorneys say

Westlake Legal Group c24c03e5-ContentBroker_contentid-819b92324e534495b7a0608f725a6e28 Jeffrey Epstein’s mysterious passport is Austrian, was needed for 'personal protection,' attorneys say Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/florida fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/us/crime/sex-crimes fox-news/person/jeffrey-epstein fox news fnc/us fnc article 9ca19341-f1e0-5eb0-8966-a45ba91fbe04

Attorneys representing registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein said Tuesday that an expired passport federal investigators found in a safe in the well-connected financier’s Manhattan home was necessary for his “personal protection.”

During a two-hour bail hearing on Monday, prosecutors used the passport to bolster their argument that Epstein was a flight risk. Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller said the passport photo appeared to be Epstein, but the name on the document was different and placed the holder’s home address in Saudi Arabia.

In response, Epstein’s attorneys said the passport was Austrian and expired 32 years ago.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN ACCUSERS’ LAWYER SAYS FINANCIER ABUSED FEMALE VISITORS WHILE ON WORK RELEASE FROM JAIL 

“The government offers nothing to suggest – and certainly no evidence – that Epstein ever used it,” they wrote in the filing, addressed to U.S. District Judge Richard Berman. “In any case, Epstein – an affluent member of the Jewish faith – acquired the passport in the 1980s, when hijackings were prevalent, in connection to Middle East travel.

“The passport was for personal protection in the event of travel to dangerous areas, only to be presented to potential kidnapers [sic], hijackers or terrorists should violent episodes occur.”

In a letter sent to Judge Berman on Tuesday, Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman (no relation) wrote that the government is trying to find out how Epstein obtained the foreign passport and whether it is genuine or fabricated.

“The defendant’s possession of what purports to be a foreign passport issued under an alias gives rise to the inference the defendant knows how to obtain false travel documents and/or assume other, foreign identities,” he wrote in the filling. “This adds to the serious risk of flight posed by the defendant.”

Judge Berman is expected to rule Thursday on whether Epstein, 66, should be detained until trial on charges that he recruited and abused dozens of underage girls in New York and Florida in the early 2000s. Epstein has pleaded not guilty.

In addition to the passport, investigators also discovered diamonds and cash in the safe during the raid of Epstein’s Upper East Side mansion following his July 6 arrest.

On Tuesday U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said in a filing that “the Government has learned that the safe contained more than $70,000 in cash. In addition, the safe contained 48 loose diamond stones, ranging in size from approximately 1 carat to 2.38 carats, as well as a large diamond ring …  Such ready cash and loose diamonds are consistent with the capability to leave the jurisdiction at a moment’s notice.”

JEFFREY EPSTEIN HAD MYSTERIOUS PASSPORT, ‘PILES OF CASH,’ AND ‘DOZENS OF DIAMONDS’ IN HOME SAFE: PROSECUTORS

Epstein’s safe was also where hundreds of photos “of what appeared to be underage girls” were discovered after his arrest, prosecutors said. In addition to the disclosure of what was in the safe, prosecutors said their case is getting “stronger by the day” after several more women contacted them in recent days to say he abused them when they were underage.

In a written submission to Berman  Friday, prosecutors said they believe Epstein might have tried to influence witnesses after discovering that he had paid a total of $350,000 to two individuals late last year. That came after the Miami Herald reported the circumstances of his state court conviction in 2008, which led to a 13-month jail term and a deal to avoid federal prosecution.

In Tuesday’s filing, U.S. Attorney Berman asked for Epstein to “be detained pending trial.”

“The defendant cannot meet his burden of overcoming the presumption that there is no combination of conditions that would reasonably assure his continued appearance in this case or protect the safety of the community were he to be released,” he wrote in the filing.
