A New York couple was a little spooked when they looked at a security camera in their living room late one night to find what they said looked like a ghost and a ghost dog, according to reports Wednesday.

Joey Nolan and his wife were checking on their sick cat via the camera just before 1 a.m. on Aug. 8. They claim they saw what appeared to be the faint outline of a person and a small animal, the New York Post reported.

The couple shared the footage with their friends and a clip uploaded to YouTube and Reddit went viral.

Some viewers said the apparition looks like a boy and a dog or a boy, girl and a dog, but Nolan thinks it could be his dead grandfather.

The sighting happened on the 20th anniversary of his grandfather’s death, and while he’s not sure it’s him, he said seeing it gave him comfort, according to The Post.

Reward up to $20G offered as search continues for husband-wife murder suspects who ‘overpowered’ Utah officers

Authorities offered up to $20,000 Wednesday for information leading to the capture of an “armed and dangerous” married couple wanted for murder in Arizona who police say overpowered guards, escaped a transport vehicle bringing them across the country in Utah and evaded a two-day manhunt.

The U.S. Marshals Service has been poring through dozens of tips since Blane Barksdale, 56, and Susan Barksdale, 59, were last seen in Blanding, Utah, on Monday. The agency hopes to get more leads by offering the reward money — $10,000 per fugitive.

“We’re getting tips left and right and looking into the validity of each one,” U.S. Deputy Marshal Michael Adams told the Associated Press.

Other agencies, including the FBI, are involved in the sweeping manhunt for the Barksdales. Police say the couple somehow “overpowered two security officers” while being transported from Henrietta, N.Y., to Pima County, Ariz., where they are wanted for the murder of Frank Bligh.

They were last seen driving a red GMC Sierra pickup truck with damage to the front passenger door and rear bumper, police said. Authorities believe the husband and wife already left Utah and may be driving through Arizona.

The suspects were arrested May 24 in upstate New York and charged with first-degree murder, burglary, arson and auto theft in connection with the disappearance of Bligh, 72, who was reported missing following the April 16 fire and explosion at his Tucson home. Bligh’s car was found abandoned the day after the fire. While his body has not been found, investigators say evidence in the car indicated he was likely dead. The Barksdales were later identified as suspects.

Ohio grandfather with gun stops intruder: ‘They picked the wrong house’

An Ohio grandfather with a loaded gun stopped a burglar who broke into his home on Tuesday, according to a local report.

Daniel McGown, 73, said he found an intruder in his Akron home and held him at gunpoint until police arrived.

“They picked the wrong house,” McGown told WEWS-TV.

“I pointed the pistol at him and said, ‘If you don’t move, I won’t shoot you,’” McGown said. He then realized he’d left his cellphone upstairs so he ordered Gaffney to walk up to the bedroom with him.

“I told him, ‘you’re going to walk ahead of me and we’re going to go upstairs where I can get my cellphone and call the police,’ and he said, ‘Please do call the police. Please don’t shoot me,'” McGown said.

“I told him to get down on his knees in front of the bed and lay down on it with his arms out, and I called the police and they showed up, and there he was.”

McGown told WEWS his house had been broken into a few days earlier, when he was out of town. He said Guns, ammunition and laptops were stolen and disassembled televisions were left behind.

Akron police said they were investigating whether Gaffney was connected to the first burglary.

“If he had reached his hand towards a pocket or something where I thought that he might have had one of the guns that went away last night or the night before, then I might have been tempted to do that,” said McGown, who reportedly has a concealed-carry permit.

“My home was being violated and here was a guy doing it in my presence,” he added. “Here’s the guy, and I just wanted to make him stop doing that.”

Gaffney has been charged with burglary and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Palestinian Harvard freshman, 17, allegedly blocked from entering US over friends’ social media posts

Ismail Ajjawi, a 17-year-old Palestinian student living in Lebanon had big plans to study medicine this fall at Harvard University but claims he was blocked from entering America because of his friends’ social media posts.

Akkawi was refused entry into the U.S. after he landed Friday at Logan International Airport in Boston, university and federal officials told the Associated Press this week. The freshman said the denial had to do with politically oriented social media posts by his friends.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) spokesman Michael McCarthy said that the decision to cancel Ajjawi’s visa was based on information discovered during an inspection, but did not specify what that information was. McCarthy added that Ajjawi was not deported, meaning he still could seek reentry.

DC CONSULTANT’S ALLEGED AFFAIR WITH ILHAN OMAR IS FRONT AND CENTER IN DIVORCE PAPERS

Harvard has been working to resolve the matter, university spokesman Jason Newton said. AMIDEAST, a nonprofit organization that awarded Ajjawi a scholarship, was providing legal assistance.

Ajjawi told The Harvard Crimson student newspaper that federal agents detained him at the airport for eight hours, searched his cellphone and laptop, and questioned him about his friends’ social media posts.

The posts included “political points of view that oppose the U.S.,” Ajjawi said in his written statement.

“I responded that I have no business with such posts and that I didn’t like, (s)hare or comment on them and told her [the agent] that I shouldn’t be held responsible for what others post,” he added.

Ajjawi told The Crimson he still hoped to join his classmates in time for the start of classes Tuesday. His family has lived in a camp for Palestinian refugees in the port city of Tyre in southern Lebanon

In an Al-Araby TV interview that aired Friday as his son was flying to the U.S., Bassel Ajjawi had this message for his son: “I am very proud of you and hope you will be an exemplary representative of the Palestinian people abroad.” Bassel Ajjawi has declined to comment beyond his son’s statement to the Crimson.

North Carolina college student studied mass shootings, kept guns in dorm, prosecutors say

A North Carolina university student who studied mass shootings planned to shoot himself and his roommate if he didn’t get accepted to a fraternity, prosecutors said Wednesday.

Paul Steber, 19, of Boston, Mass. was arrested Tuesday and charged with two felony counts of having weapons on campus and a charge of making threats of mass violence, High Point police said in a statement. The 19-year-old is a freshman at High Point University.

Steber was found with a double-barrel 12-gauge shotgun and a 9mm semi-automatic pistol. It wasn’t clear what type of ammunition was retrieved.

Students reported the weapons to school security, which confiscated the firearms and alerted law enforcement.

“This incident illustrates the importance of the public reporting suspicious activity to authorities,” the police statement said. “Information from the public is often the critical first step in preventing acts of mass violence.”

In addition to having the weapons, Steber watched videos on how to carry out a mass shooting, Assistant District Attorney Lori Wickline said in court.

“He told officers that he definitely had a plan, something that he had been thinking about since Christmas of last year,” she said.

“And, he had been recently watching videos of the Charleston mass shooting down in South Carolina and other mass shootings so that he could learn what to do and what not to do,” she added.

She said Steber planned to shoot himself and his roommate if the roommate was accepted into a fraternity and Steber wasn’t. She said Steber bought the weapons within the past week, but it wasn’t clear if they were obtained legally.

Police said Steber was ordered held without bond for a maximum of ten days and must undergo a mental health examination during that time.

“This is any parent’s worst nightmare,” defense attorney John Bryson said about Steber’s father, who had appeared in court. “He’s obviously very concerned about his son.”

Maryland man accused of plotting ISIS-inspired terror attack near DC is indicted

A Maryland man accused of plotting an ISIS-inspired terror attack at a tourist site near Washington, D.C., was indicted Wednesday on a terrorism-related charge, the Justice Department announced.

Rondell Henry, 28, of Germantown was indicted on federal charges of attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State and interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle, the DOJ said.

Henry moved to the U.S. from Trinidad and Tobago 11 years ago and is a naturalized citizen.

He is accused of stealing a U-Haul van in Alexandria, Va., and driving it to Maryland, where he intended to use it as a weapon at the National Harbor complex on the Potomac River, according to previously filed court documents.

Prince George’s County Police reviewed surveillance footage and found the stolen van on March 27. Henry was arrested the next day after police say he tried to jump a security fence. He has remained detained pending a trial.

ISLAMIST TERROR PLOTS IN EUROPE DECLINING, BUT SCHEMES GETTING MORE ‘CREATIVE,’ ANALYSIS SAYS

Henry originally considered a March 27 attack at Dulles International Airport in Virginia, but he was unable bypass security there, so he drove to National Harbor instead, prosecutors said.

Henry is said to have told investigators he wanted to carry out an operation like the 2016 attack in Nice, France, in which a driver deliberately drove a truck into crowds celebrating Bastille Day and killed 86 people.

He wanted to kill as many “disbelievers” as he could, Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas Windom said during a detention hearing on April 9.

Henry allegedly watched ISIS propaganda videos of beheadings and fighting and found the actions admirable and brave, prosecutors said in a court filing. Investigators also uncovered Henry’s discarded phone and found images of armed Islamic State fighters, the ISIS flag and the man who killed 49 people and injured 53 others at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla., three years ago.

If convicted, Henry will face up to 20 years in prison for the charge of attempting to provide material support to ISIS, and up to 10 years for transporting a stolen vehicle. Henry was first indicted in April and pleaded not guilty to transporting a stolen vehicle across state lines.

Midwest farmers’ Trump loyalty tested by new corn-ethanol rules

After President Trump levied tariffs on China that roiled global markets, the patience of many Midwest farmers with a president they mostly supported in 2016 has been put to a significant test.

The trigger wasn’t Trump’s China tariffs, but the waivers the administration granted this month to 31 oil refineries so they don’t have to blend ethanol into their gasoline. Since roughly 40 percent of the U.S. corn crop is turned into ethanol, it was a fresh blow to corn producers already struggling with five years of low commodity prices and the threat of mediocre harvests resulting from bad weather.

“I’ve never seen farmers so tired, so frustrated, and they’re to the point of anger,” said Kelly Nieuwenhuis, a farmer from Primghar in northwest Iowa, who said the waivers were a hot topic at a recent meeting of the Iowa Corn Growers Association. Nieuwenhuis, speaking to The Associated Press, said he voted for Trump in 2016, but now he’s not sure who he’ll back next year.

ICE OFFICES, WORKERS HIT BY WAVE OF VIOLENCE AND THREATS

“That’s our own country stabbing us in the back,” farmer Randy Miller said. “That’s the president going, ‘The oil companies need to make more than the American farmer.’ … That was just, ‘I like the oil company better or I’m friends with the oil company more than I’m friends with the farmer.’”

The Environmental Protection Agency last month kept its annual target for the level of corn ethanol that must be blended into the nation’s gasoline supply under the Renewable Fuel Standard at 15 billion gallons for 2020. That was a deep disappointment to an ethanol industry that wanted a higher target to offset exemptions granted to smaller refiners. Those waivers have cut demand by an estimated 2.6 billion gallons since Trump took office.

At least 15 ethanol plants have been shut down or idled since the EPA increased waivers under Trump, and a 16th casualty came Wednesday: the Corn Plus ethanol facility in the south-central Minnesota town of Winnebago. The Renewable Fuels Association says the closures have affected more than 2,500 jobs.

The 31 new waivers issued this month came on top of 54 granted since early 2018, according to the association. While the waivers are intended to reduce hardships on small oil refiners, some beneficiaries included smaller refineries owned by big oil companies.

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said at a farm policy summit in Decatur, Ill.,  on Wednesday that Trump will take action to soften the effects. He would not say what the president might do or when, but said Trump believed the waivers by his EPA were “way overdone.”

NJ mom charged in toddler’s death nearly one year after remains were found in alley: prosecutors

A New Jersey mother was taken into custody on Wednesday, indicted on charges including the murder of her toddler son a year ago, prosecutors said.

Tynaizha Brown, 24, of Camden, was arrested about 10:20 a.m. after a Camden County grand jury indicted her in connection with the death of her 22-month-old.

The investigation began on Oct. 11, 2018, when a passer-by found the decomposing remains of a toddler in an alley in Camden. Investigators said they believed the body of the boy, Jah’vi Brown, had been there for at least two weeks, Fox 29 reported.

Prosecutors said the toddler’s father, Anthony Burnett, came to the Bellmawr Police Department last Dec. 6 to report his son missing, saying he hadn’t seen him for months. Investigators said a DNA sample of the missing boy was compared to the remains, and his identity was confirmed.

Further investigation revealed that Jah’vi was last seen on Aug. 20, 2018, in Bellmawr, Fox 29 reported, adding that neither parent reported the child missing before Dec. 6.

Prosecutors said there were two additional counts in the indictment: second-degree aggravated assault and second-degree endangering the welfare of a child.

Georgia man charged as serial rapist was recruit for police department that arrested him

A former police recruit accused of a series of rapes in Georgia was arrested by members of the same department where he hoped to work, officials said Wednesday.

Kenneth Thomas Bowen III, 24, was charged with seven counts of rape and one count of sexual battery, Clayton County Police Chief Kevin Roberts said at a news conference.

Roberts called the rapes “a cloud over our community.”

DNA testing from evidence collected at the crimes scenes connected Bowen to the rapes. Police said they took him into custody at his job but did not disclose the name of his employer.

Roberts stressed that Bowen was never a police officer.

“Kenneth Bowen was never a certified police officer with this agency,” he said. “He was hired by me in June 2018. He was also terminated by me on September 12, 2018.”

Bowen was dismissed from the police academy for being absent without leave and being “untruthful,” Roberts said.

“Had he not attempted to join the ranks of the Clayton County Police Department, it’s questionable as to when we would have apprehended him,” Roberts said.

Investigators eliminated multiple suspects through DNA testing, Clayton County Police Lt. Tom Reimers said. A review of 911 calls of suspicious people over the last several years led detectives to Bowen.

After obtaining his name and birthdate from a 2016 call, investigators found similarities between Bowen’s photo and police sketches from descriptions given by rape victims, Reimers said.

A warrant for Bowen’s DNA was obtained last week. After police surveilled Bowen at his job, they obtained his DNA during a traffic stop. The results came back Tuesday.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has fired a deputy whom officials say “completely fabricated” a story last week about being shot by a sniper.

Sheriff Alex Villanueva made the announcement regarding Angel Reinosa on Wednesday, days after his assistant told reporters that the department intended on relieving the 21-year-old of his duties. He said Reinosa no longer worked with the sheriff’s department as of Tuesday night.

He then said he can’t comment on the personnel matter and can’t speculate on the motive for Reinosa’s alleged fabrications.

Law enforcement sources also told NBC Los Angeles that prosecutors are exploring potential criminal charges against Reinosa, ranging from making a false report of an emergency to perjury.

Reinosa, a rookie with the department, had cut holes in his shirt to make it look like he had been shot last Wednesday and was treated for a “bruise” on his shoulder at a hospital following the allegedly made-up incident, Homicide Bureau Capt. Kent Wegener said over the weekend.

SHERIFF’S DEPUTY MADE UP STORY ABOUT BEING SHOT, AUTHORITIES SAY

Assistant Sheriff Robin Limon told reporters the department was “incredibly disappointed” by the case and is launching a criminal investigation into the officer’s false report.

“Things didn’t add up,” Wegener said. “There was no sniper, no shots fired and no gunshot injuries sustained to his shoulder. Completely fabricated.”

The deputy claimed he was shot while walking to his car from the sheriff’s station in Lancaster in northern L.A. County. Reinosa reported that he was shot in the chest but his bulletproof vest deflected the bullet into his shoulder, causing a bruise.

Heavily-armed deputies wearing tactical gear then set up a perimeter and launched a massive search for a suspect in triple-digit temperatures Wednesday but weren’t able to find a suspect.

Wegener said the investigation found no ballistic evidence at the scene and no witnesses said they had heard any shots.

He added that Reinosa hasn’t said why he allegedly did it.

Fox News’ Brie Stimson and the Associated Press contributed to this report.
