Truck driver in New Hampshire crash that killed 7 bikers was on drugs, report says

A Massachusetts truck driver who has been charged with negligent homicide in a June crash that killed seven motorcyclists in New Hampshire was on drugs and reaching for a beverage just before the tragedy, The Boston Globe reported Thursday.

The Globe, citing a report by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, said that Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, tested positive for an unspecified drug when his pickup truck crossed the yellow center line of U.S. Route 2 and hit the motorcyclists on the evening of June 21 in Randolph, N.H. Zhukovskyy also admitted to reaching for a drink just before the crash, but did not specify what kind of beverage.

Zhukovskyy, of West Springfield, Mass. has pleaded not guilty and remains behind bars. The seven victims were members of the Jarheads Motorcycle Club, a New England group made up of Marines and their spouses.

Zhukovskyy and his lawyer have yet to comment on the matter.

Since the crash, it has emerged that Zhukovskyy had multiple run-ins with the law.

In May, Connecticut prosecutors said Zhukovskyy was arrested in a Walmart parking lot after failing a sobriety test. Zhukovskyy’s lawyer in that case, John O’Brien, said he denies being intoxicated and will fight the charge.

Connecticut officials twice alerted Massachusetts about an earlier drunken driving arrest. Massachusetts investigators later determined the Registry of Motor Vehicles hadn’t been acting on thousands of out-of-state notifications about serious driving violations. The commonwealth’s registrar of motor vehicles, Erin Deveney, resigned in late June after the lapse was made public.

Westfield Transport, the company that Zhukovskyy was driving for on the day of June 21 crash also has a troubled history.

According to an Associated Press analysis of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration data, Westfield Transport Inc. faced over 60 violations over the last 24 months.

About one in five inspections of its vehicles ended with federal investigators issuing temporary orders saying the carrier was not authorized to operate. The company’s out-of-service rate is 20.8 percent — a figure nearly four times greater than the national average of 5.5 percent.

Federal records show the company has faced seven violations for unsafe driving, including speeding. The company also faced two violations in March 2018, reported in Massachusetts and Vermont, of drivers who were in possession of a narcotic drug or amphetamine.

Navy pilot confirmed dead in California crash that injured 7 on the ground

The pilot of a U.S. Navy F/A-18E Super Hornet jet was killed when the plane crashed in California’s Mojave Desert during a training mission, officials confirmed Thursday.

The pilot’s identity is being withheld until 24 hours after notification of next of kin, per Defense Department policy.

“The Navy mourns the loss of one of our own and our thoughts go out to the family and friends affected by this tragedy,” the U.S. Naval Air Forces said in a statement.

F-16 FIGHTER JET CRASHES WHILE TRYING TO LAND AT CALIFORNIA BASE, 12 MINOR INJURIES REPORTED

The single-seat jet crashed Wednesday morning during low-level flying in what was described as routine training

The crash injured seven people who were at a scenic overlook in Death Valley National Park where aviation enthusiasts routinely watch military aircraft speeding low through a chasm dubbed “Star Wars Canyon.” The lookout point about 160 miles north of Los Angeles is popular with photographers and aviation buffs who gawk at jets flying in the steep, narrow canyon.

Officials closed the area after the crash. Park spokesman Patrick Taylor said initial reports were that the injuries were minor.

The crash sent dark smoke billowing in the air, said Aaron Cassell, who was working at his family’s Panamint Springs Resort about 10 miles away and was the first to report the crash to park dispatch.

“I just saw a black mushroom cloud go up,” Cassell told The Associated Press. “Typically you don’t see a mushroom cloud in the desert.”

Cassell said he heard jets roaring through the area and then saw the cloud of smoke.

“It looked like a bomb,” Cassell said. “To me that speaks of a very violent impact.”

A jet that was following the downed craft pulled up and began circling, Cassell said. He didn’t see any parachute.

His father drove up to the area after the crash and saw a large black scorch mark and shattered parts of the jet scattered throughout the area between the parking lot and lookout, Cassell said. A nose cone from the jet was the size of a bowling ball and the rest of the debris was no larger than a ball cap.

Amanda Knox married in December despite soliciting wedding donations, state documents reveal: report

Newly released court documents revealed Amanda Knox and fiance Christoper Robinson were actually married in December despite recently setting up a public registry to solicit “donations” to help pay for a February wedding.

Documents filed in King County, Wa., obtained by The Telegraph, showed the pair applied for a marriage license on Nov. 21 and were officially married Dec. 7.

But on July 20, Knox posted a video to Instagram asking her followers to “check out” their non-traditional registry for their extraterrestrial-themed wedding. Once on the website, people were prompted to a page set up for donations.

AMANDA KNOX INSISTS SHE’S NOT CROWDFUNDING HER WEDDING DESPITE SHARING PUBLIC REGISTRY ‘ACCEPTING DONATIONS’

“Let’s face it, we don’t need any more stuff. So please, no gifts, and no pressure. But if you feel so inclined, we welcome help putting on the best party ever for our family and friends!” a message from the couple read.

Among the list of possible gifts was a $2,000 donation for “temporal patron.” Guests were also asked to donate to defray the open bar and dinner costs.

But Knox, 32, fired back with a statement to the British outlet saying the winter paperwork was more of a formality than an actual wedding celebration.

“We filed paperwork to be legally married in December of last year to simplify our taxes and insurance,” the statement read. Meanwhile, the wedding set for Leap Day next year was meant to be a celebration “with our loved ones.”

AMANDA KNOX’S RETURN TO ITALY SLAMMED AS ‘INAPPROPRIATE’ BY SLAIN BRITISH STUDENT’S FAMILY LAWYER 

It’s not clear if Knox or Robinson ever revealed they were legally married prior to Thursday’s reports.

Knox came under fire last month after she was accused of crowdfunding her wedding, but in her statement Thursday she said her recent trip to Italy to attend an event by the Italy Innocence Project set her back financially.

“The trip was a financial setback for us and we were forced to use funds we’d been saving for our wedding,” which she said included $10,000 on security measures and travel expenses.

She did admit, however, to also receiving a significant amount of money from the organization to attend the speaking event.

Knox’s trip to Italy in June was her first trip to the European country since she was acquitted of the murder and sexual assault of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher.

Knox and her former boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, were initially convicted in 2009 of Kercher’s slaying in the hilltop university town. She was acquitted in 2011 on appeal after spending four years in custody, and she immediately returned to Seattle.

The murder conviction was reinstated in 2014, but she was finally, definitively acquitted in 2015 by Italy’s highest court.

A Los Angeles hospital director was arrested after allegedly distributing and possessing child pornography, the district attorney’s office announced Wednesday.

CHILD PORN INVESTIGATION ENSNARES MIAMI-DADE COUNTY DAY CARE

Guido Germano, 59, was arrested on June 19 after allegedly distributing child porn through “peer-to-peer” software and downloading the videos to his personal computer at his home in Santa Monica, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said in a press release.

He works as the Division of Artificial Intelligence Medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in the Beverly Grove area of Los Angeles. He also was on the editorial board of three medical journals, KTLA reported, citing a recently removed biography from Cedars-Sinai’s website.

Germano faces one felony count of distribution of obscene matter and possession of child pornography, according to a press release from the district attorney’s office. He was released on bond and is due back for arraignment Thursday at Foltz Criminal Justice Center, the Santa Monica Sun reported.

Biden under attack from all sides at Wednesday’s debate; Mystery surrounds death of bin Laden’s son

Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know as you start your day …

Biden under fire from all sides on Night 2 in Detroit
Joe Biden seemed better prepared Wednesday in Detroit than he was last month in Miami as nine other would-be 2020 Democratic nominees took aim at his long record during the second round of the presidential primary debates. But he also found out that, not quite three years after he and President Obama left the White House, the Democratic Party of 2019 may no longer be the party of Obama. The former vice president tried keep his focus on President Trump and preview the general election battle he hopes to wage in 2020. But every other candidate quickly looked to score points by taking him out, and Biden spent the better part of the night fighting off their withering attacks.

The Democratic presidential primary front-runner sought to avoid a repeat of last month’s damaging clash with Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., but he faced the additional challenge in Detroit from Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J. The two senators tore into Biden’s record on everything from health care to immigration to criminal justice reform — as other candidates including New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio also took aim at the former veep. But Booker, who has struggled for months in the polls, was arguably toughest this time around, calling out Biden at one point for ducking a question on what advice he gave Obama on deportations.

Surrounded by candidates demanding that illegal border crossings be decriminalized, Biden struggled to push back. After all, some critics often called President Obama the “deporter-in-chief.” Booker dinged him for saying he wanted to “cherry-pick” the best and brightest immigrants, arguing it was pitting one set of immigrants against another. Uncensored, Booker elaborated to suggest it demeans some as being from “s—hole countries,” in a reference to a comment Trump reportedly once made.

The big winners and losers of Wednesday’s Democratic debate were … 
Doug Schoen, a Fox News contributor and Democratic consultant, believes that despite the onslaught of attacks, Joe Biden emerged as the clear winner of Wednesday’s debate. However, Biden, Schoen says, faces a lingering question on whether he can win the support of progressives who believe the former VP is too moderate. Two of his greatest roadblocks to the Democratic nomination — U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. — did not share the stage with him Wednesday. “Despite Biden’s strong performance and solid frontrunner status, it is clear that the party has seismically shifted away from the centrist Democratic Party of the 1990s, making his path to the nomination far from certain,” Schoen writes. CLICK HERE for Schoen’s full analysis.

Mystery surrounds the reported death of Usama bin Laden’s son
Hamza bin Laden, a son of Usama bin Laden, has died, according to multiple reports Wednesday. But the circumstances of his reported death remained a mystery. The date, location and other circumstances surrounding the death weren’t released. President Trump and top administration officials have chosen not to comment. The State Department in February had offered a $1 million reward for information leading to Usama bin Laden’s son. Hamza bin Laden was named a “specially designated global terrorist” in January 2017. He was not the head of Al Qaeda but had risen in prominence within the terror network his father founded, and the group may be grooming him to stand as a leader for a young generation of militants.

Ghosts of Elijah Cummings’ Baltimore past come back to haunt him
House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., previously referred to his community of Baltimore as a “drug-infested” area, using a term that President Trump included in a tweet widely panned as a racist attack on the city. The video, tweeted by the president Wednesday, showed Cummings lamenting the city’s scourge of drugs while speaking during what appeared to be a congressional hearing. “This morning, I left my community of Baltimore — a drug-infested area where a lot of the drugs we are talking about today have already taken the lives of so many children,” he said.

Astros land an ace in surprising deal; two dozen trades on MLB’s deadline day
Out of nowhere, the AL West-leading Houston Astros got a huge boost heading toward MLB’s postseason. On a dizzying day before baseball’s trade deadline, the Astros pulled off the biggest and most startling deal, adding ace Zack Greinke to an imposing rotation already loaded with All-Stars Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole. Plenty of familiar names were on the move Wednesday — Shane Greene and Mark Melancon boosted the Braves’ bullpen, with Scooter Gennett, Jesús Aguilar, Mike Leake and Tanner Roark among those also changing teams. But it was the Astros’ acquisition of Greinke from Arizona for four minor leaguers that quickly became the talk of baseball. – Associated Press

Gender-neutral restrooms planned for Nevada district’s newly built schools

A Nevada school district has eliminated separate male and female restrooms in its floor design for newly constructed schools, instead opting for gender-neutral facilities.

MISSOURI SCHOOL DISTRICT EMBRACES GENDER-NEUTRAL BATHROOMS

The Washoe County School District said Wednesday that newly built elementary and middle schools in the district will have gender-neutral restrooms complete with wall-to-ceiling stalls. All students will share a handwashing station in an open space of the restroom, Reno’s KTVN-TV reported.

“The architects and the school board really wanted us to come up with a new design for the student restrooms,” Adam Searcy, chief facilities officer at the Washoe County School District, said. “When you go into traditional restrooms, it’s an area where some students don’t really feel safe.”

In theory, the stalls that stretch from wall to ceiling will provide students with more privacy and help combat problems that the district has experienced in the past of students using cell phones to take photos of others underneath or over traditional restroom stalls, Searcy said.

The shared handwashing station located in an open space will allow school teachers and staff to more easily monitor students, Searcy also told KTVN.

ICE’s most wanted alleged human-trafficker nabbed in Michigan

Federal agents apprehended a member of Immigration and Custom Enforcement’s Most Wanted List Wednesday who has been on the run for more than two years for his alleged role in operating a large-scale human trafficking and drug operation out of a Detroit motel.

Bell–also known as Tone or Ghost– was nabbed at the motel on Wednesday with about $12,000 in cash and cocaine, the Detroit Free Press reported. A woman was also arrested.

Bell, a U.S. citizen, escaped arrest on Jan. 12, 2017 when more than 200 law enforcement personnel descended on the Victoria Inn to break up the operation. Women who lived at the motel were allegedly drugged and forced through coercion, threats and isolation to perform commercial sex acts for the financial benefit of Bell and his associates, ICE said.

Bell and five other defendants were charged in a 9-count indictment with trafficking in persons, forced labor, drug trafficking, money laundering, extortion collection and conspiracy, among other charges, ICE said.

Death Valley National Park spokesman Patrick Taylor says the seven were park visitors and have only minor injuries.

There’s no word yet on what happened to the pilot of the F/A-18 Super Hornet, which went down during a training mission Wednesday morning.

Lawyers for missing Connecticut mom’s husband calls report of her blood-stained shirt ‘speculation’

Attorneys for Fotis Dulos say reports that investigators found a blood-stained T-shirt and bra that may be what his client’s estranged wife, Jennifer Dulos, was wearing on the day she disappeared sound “like desperate speculation.”

“I am unaware of any evidence about what she was wearing when she disappeared,” Dulos’ attorney Norm Pattis said in a statement responding to reports by The Hartford Courant.

JENNIFER DULOS’ MOTHER GRANTED CUSTODY OF HER CHILDREN AS HER WHEREABOUTS STILL REMAIN UNKNOWN

The paper reported Wednesday that the items of clothing, including a Vineyard Vines T-shirt that family members say the Hartford mom wore,  were uncovered after police sifted through tons of trash.

Fox News also confirmed that Dulos’ defense team received 26 CDs in discovery that prosecutors say show a man that appears to be Fotis Dulos dumping bags of trash “which appeared to be stained with a substance consistent with the appearance of blood,” along Albany Avenue starting on the day his wife disappeared, according to court documents.

Pattis said that he was unable to view some of the footage on the CDs, and has asked Stamford/Norwalk State’s Attorney Richard Colangelo for new copies of several of the discs.

The 50-year-old mother of five was last seen dropping off her kids at their school in New Canaan, Conn. Her 2017 black Chevy Suburban was found near Waveny Park with no sign of her.

Fotis and Jennifer Dulos were in the midst of a bitter divorce and custody battle over their children– three boys and two girls ranging in ages from 8 to 13.

In the wake of her disappearance, a judge has granted Jennifer’s mother, Gloria Farber, custody of the children as they continue with the ongoing investigation.

Fotis Dulos, 51, and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, 44, are out on $500,000 bail after being charged with evidence tampering and hindering prosecution in relation to the missing-person investigation.

Dulos is due to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Aug. 9 and is expected to face further charges.

An aspiring pastor from Iowa who had been married for three days drowned Tuesday while honeymooning in Florida, officials say.

Dalton Cottrell and his wife Cheyenne Hedrick, both 22, were in the water at Crescent Beach in Saint Augustine, Fla., when a strong current swept both of them out into the ocean, according to a St. Johns County Sheriff’s Department incident report obtained by Fox News.

FLORIDA BEACHGOERS, WILDLIFE OFFICIALS RESCUE 5 STRANDED PILOT WHALES

Hedrick told police that it was Cottrell’s first time in the ocean and he began to “freak out,” pulling her underwater with him as she tried to save him. She added that her husband bobbed above the surface after about a minute of being under and she saw his eyes roll back in his head.

William Loy, another beachgoer, heard the couple yelling in the ocean and alerted a St. Johns County lifeguard.

The lifeguard dragged Cottrell, who was foaming at the mouth, to shore on his paddleboard and attempted to perform CPR.

Cottrell was rushed to Flagler Hospital in St. Augustine where he was pronounced dead.

Cottrell and Hedrick were both seniors at Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary in Ankeny, Iowa. The school said in a statement that the couple had married on Saturday in Kansas City.

“I would like to encourage Eagle Nation to pray for, love, and support both Cheyenne and Dalton’s family,” school president Dr. Jim Tillotson said in a statement. ” … May we do all we can to support all of them through this difficult time.”

A memorial service was scheduled for Wednesday night at the couple’s church in Des Moines.
