18-year-old pageant queen and pilot dies in fiery plane crash

An 18-year-old pilot, who was set to compete in a Mississippi pageant later this month, died when she crashed on a golf course, officials said Sunday.

Lake Little, the daughter of Starkville, Miss., Alderman David Little and his wife Pattie, succumbed late Saturday to her injuries from the 3:15 p.m. crash on the Ole Miss Golf Course, University of Mississippi spokesman Rod Guajardo said Sunday.

The teenager, who dreamed of becoming a professional pilot, was practicing takeoffs and landings in a single-engine plane at the nearby University-Oxford Airport when she crashed near the course’s 17th tee box, The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reported.

“Such sad news about Lake Little. A beautiful light has passed from this world far too soon,” tweeted Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant.

Little was set to compete this month in Mississippi’s Miss Hospitality pageant. The winner of the competitions spends a year promoting tourism to the state.

“Lake had a vibrant personality. She was full of life and lived it to the fullest,” Starkville Miss Hospitality director Angella Baker told the paper. “She was very passionate about flying and had just recently received her private pilots license.”

According to her Miss Hospitality profile, Little aspired to eventually fly for FedEx.

A star student, she graduated in May from Starkville Academy, where she received numerous academic honors and was inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame.

She planned to study speech pathology and audiology at the University of Southern Mississippi and wanted to open her own clinic to help children and the elderly while maintaining an aviation career.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.

Tennessee boy, 13, stabs brother saying jail is better than car ride with sibling, deputies say

A 13-year-old boy from Tennessee stabbed his 15-year-old brother in Florida, telling deputies he would rather go to jail than spend eight hours in the car with his sibling, investigators said.

Lt. Todd Watkins with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News on Sunday that he responded to the scene the day before and said deputies arrested the 13-year-old after he said he stabbed his brother in the arm three times with a “multi-tool.”

Watkins said the teen told deputies he did it because he was “tired of his brother picking on him.”

The incident happened inside a car parked in a driveway in Crestview, which is about a 45-minute drive from Pensacola, Watkins said.

The stabbed brother then walked to the door of the home and called 911, he added.

Watkins said as his brother was being questioned about the incident, he said he understood his rights and that he did not regret stabbing his sibling who was teasing him.

“I stabbed him and I don’t care about going back to jail. I’d rather be in jail than eight hours in the car with him,” according to the arrest report.

The 13-year-old was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and was brought to juvenile detention.

“We’ve had incidents with siblings but not this young,” Watkins told Fox News. “I have never dealt with them this young with this violent of a crime.”

Watkins said the older brother did not say much to deputies at the time he was stabbed. Watkins said the 15-year-old was heard calling some of his friends to retaliate against his brother while he was in the back of the ambulance, apparently to no avail.

Doctors treated t​​​​​he 15-year-old for three “deep puncture wounds” before releasing him from the hospital, Watkins said, adding that his treatment did not include surgery.

The brothers live in Clarksville, Tennessee, about an hour’s drive from Nashville.

Florida man arrested after throwing firecrackers under girl’s bed during a ‘prank gone wrong,’ deputies say

Westlake Legal Group Matt-Morrison Florida man arrested after throwing firecrackers under girl's bed during a 'prank gone wrong,' deputies say Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/florida fox-news/us/crime/drugs fox news fnc/us fnc article 3c7c4faa-4549-53b6-a57b-261610245fdc

A man in Florida is facing several charges including child cruelty after he allegedly threw lit firecrackers under a sleeping girl’s bed on Saturday, telling deputies it was a “prank gone wrong.”

Matthew Morrison, 44, of Crestview, which is about a 45-minute drive from Pensacola, lived in a tent outside the home he entered without permission, Lt. Todd Watkins with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News. He said the homeowner let him sleep outside on the property as a favor to an “acquaintance” he was trying to help.

Watkins said after Morrison threw the lit firecrackers under the 9-year-old girl’s bed, the homeowner chased him out of the house with a stick.

The child and Morrison were not hurt, deputies said, but the incident left the girl “terrified.” She told deputies she was crying and shaking after the prank, Watkins said.

Watkins, who responded to the scene, described the incident as “a strange deal.”

“I’m not sure what he was trying to accomplish,” Watkins told Fox News. “The prank thing didn’t really sound like it was a legitimate reason.”

When deputies arrested Morrison, they found two grams of methamphetamine in his pocket, Watkins said.

Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking involved locations in NY, Virgin Islands, Florida, NM ranch: attorney

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6026881587001_6026884461001-vs Jeffrey Epstein's alleged sex trafficking involved locations in NY, Virgin Islands, Florida, NM ranch: attorney Frank Miles fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/new-mexico fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/florida fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/us/crime/sex-crimes fox news fnc/us fnc d7a2bf0a-d8ef-565c-9dc0-48374421fbd4 article

Billionaire financier and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein is due in court Monday following an arrest on new charges that he trafficked young girls across state lines including New York, the Virgin Islands, Florida and a ranch in New Mexico, according to a lawyer for the accusers.

Attorney David Boies told Fox News on Sunday that Epstein, a wealthy hedge fund manager, will be charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking, and he expected that more superseding indictments would be added.

Boies said both the public corruption unit and the sex trafficking unit in New York worked the investigation.

DOJ TO INVESTIGATE PLEA BARGAIN AWARDED TO CLINTON-LINKED SEX OFFENDER JEFFREY EPSTEIN, BUT WATCHDOGS SAY PROBE IS TAINTED

He said Epstein was picked up at a New York airport and taken into federal custody Saturday after his flight landed from Paris.

Epstein was being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website. He’s expected to appear Monday in Manhattan federal court.

“This is an important first step. Hopefully prosecutors will focus on some of his [Epstein’s] co-conspirators going forward,” Boies told Fox News.

Epstein once counted as friends former President Bill Clinton, Britain’s Prince Andrew and President Trump.

Court documents obtained by Fox News in 2016 showed that Clinton took at least 26 trips flying aboard Epstein’s private jet, known as the “Lolita Express,” and apparently ditched his Secret Service detail on some of the excursions. Records showed that Trump apparently flew on the jet at least once.

Trump biographer Tim O’Brien this weekend reposted an excerpt from a 2002 profile of Epstein in New York Magazine, in which Trump told a reporter, “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”

However, Trump’s legal team more recently has denied the two were friends.

Trump banned Epstein from his Mar-a-Lago estate “because Epstein sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club,” according to court documents filed by Bradley Edwards, the lawyer who has represented several Epstein accusers. That claim has not been confirmed by Trump or Mar-a-Lago.

Epstein’s arrest came amid renewed scrutiny of a once-secret plea deal that ended a federal investigation against him.

That deal, which has been challenged in Florida federal court, allowed Epstein, 66, to plead guilty to lesser state charges of soliciting and procuring a person under age 18 for prostitution.

Averting a possible life sentence, Epstein instead was sentenced to 13 months in jail. The deal also required he reach financial settlements with dozens of his once-teenage victims and register as a sex offender.

Epstein’s deal was overseen by former Miami U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta, who is now Trump’s labor secretary. Acosta has defended the plea deal as appropriate under the circumstances, though the White House said in February that it was “looking into” his handling of the deal.

U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra of Florida ruled earlier this year that Epstein’s victims should have been consulted under federal law about the deal, and since then he’s been weighing whether to invalidate the non-prosecution agreement, or NPA, that protected Epstein from federal charges.

An early morning fire on Sunday killed an eight-month-old baby and injured five small children in Tennessee, according to fire officials.

Nashville firefighters responded to the Hickory Lake Apartments in Antioch, Tenn., about a 20-minute drive from Nashville, around 2 a.m. Sunday for an apartment fire, according to a news release from the Nashville Fire Department.

The first unit to arrive on scene found heavy smoke and flames coming from one of the apartments in the complex, fire officials said.

‘Delinquent’ Colorado bear opened unlocked car, ‘butt-shifted’ vehicle downhill, police say

Colorado police are reminding drivers to keep their car doors locked after a “four-legged suspect” broke inside a vehicle and wrecked it during a short joyride last week.

A “delinquent” bear pulled open the driver’s side door on an unlocked car Thursday night, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office said.

The animal jumped in and became trapped when the door closed behind it.

The bear dug through all four doors and ripped apart the paneling. The animal then “apparently butt-shifted the car into neutral,” police said. The vehicle rolled backward out of the driveway and continued about 100 feet downhill.

Colorado sheriff’s office bloodhound helps find missing 12-year-old girl in Wyoming

A Colorado police dog turned out to be in the right place at exactly the right time last week, helping to locate a missing 12-year-old girl in Wyoming, according to officials.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook that Deputy K. Fosler and bloodhound Jessie were in Wyoming on an unrelated call when they were diverted for a request with the search of a missing girl.

Brianna Weinart was reported missing around 10 p.m. on Monday, according to the Casper Star-Tribune.

The deputy and Jessie joined in the search for their girl, but the nearly 90-degree heat required the dog to take a 20-minute break in spite of wearing a cooling vest. The cactus-dense area also made search efforts more difficult, according to the sheriff’s office.

“For nearly two hours, she searched the Wyoming area where the 12-year-old girl was last seen……and then she pulled her handler, Deputy Fosler, back toward the direction they started. Deputy Fosler thought she had lost the scent,” police said. “Turns out, she knew exactly where she was going and as the pair got closer to a home, Jessie went around to the back and near a large bush, they spotted the girl, hiding.”

Weinart was hungry, dehydrated and sunburned after 20 hours, but was “otherwise uninjured,” according to the sheriff’s office.

Thousands of motorcyclists ride in honor of 7 bikers killed in NH crash

A long procession of motorcycles participated Saturday in a memorial ride in New Hampshire to remember seven bikers, including five Marines, killed in a collision with a truck last month.

The 90-mile “Ride for the Fallen 7” attracted more than 3,000 bikers, some as far away as Florida and California.

Organizer Steve Allison said the event to honor the victims who rode with the Jarheads Motorcycle Club “was a statement,” the New Hampshire Union Leader reported.

LSD-fueled rampage in California leaves 8 injured after man stabs others with pencil, lawn light: police

This was one very bad — and violent — acid trip.

A man in California was shot by police on the Fourth of July after a drug-fueled rampage left eight people injured and a vehicle lodged in a rental home.

The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release the suspect, 32-year-old Betai Koffi, is charged with two counts of attempted murder, three counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one charge of carjacking for the incidents leading up to the officer-involved shooting.

Koffi, of San Francisco, was staying with five “longtime friends” who had rented a home in Bodega Bay for the Independence Day holiday weekend and arrived on Wednesday.

During the day on Thursday, police said that Koffi consumed about two doses of the hallucinogenic drug LSD, also known as acid, and had become “delusional” by 3 p.m. around the home as friends had tried to calm him down. Between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m., Koffi then took two more doses of acid and, by 8 p.m., wanted to leave as his friends tried to stop him.

“Several members of his party took a half tab of acid, but Koffi took four doses of acid and he had a really bad trip with it,” Sonoma County Sheriff’s Sgt Spencer Crum told KTVU.

As he was hallucinating, police said Koffi punched a woman in the chest and side, then stabbed a man with a pencil before choking another man and punching a third man in the face. The 32-year-old was able to get outside the home into his rental car, backed into another car behind him, then drove toward one of the men who dodged him and crashed into the garage of the home, lodging it in the structure, according to police.

Koffi then took off on foot and encountered a security guard who patrols the subdivision, attacking him.

“He picks up a landscape light, like a solar landscape light, and picks it up and then stabs the security guard with the metal end of it, knocking the security guard to the ground,” Crum told KTVU.

After stabbing the security guard in the chest, Koffi then stole his truck, which was unlocked and running, speeding away. He then drove straight toward a couple who were walking on the road and “violently hit” a woman, leaving her with “significant injuries,” according to police.  The man was struck on the arm but was not seriously injured.

After striking the first couple, the sheriff’s office said Koffi then drove toward another man and woman who were walking, and “aimed at the woman and hit her with the truck, causing significant injuries.”

“He’s intentionally running people down, intentionally ran four people down,” Crum told KTVU, adding the rampage was captured on home security cameras. “The couple that did not see it coming, who are walking arm in arm, it’s really sad. And when you watch the video you can’t help feel emotional.”

The rampage finally came in an end when a sheriff’s deputy and California Highway Patrol officer arrived, by which time Koffi had driven through someone’s yard, hit a wall, and continued back on the road.

The sheriff’s office said that when Koffi saw the officers, he turned the truck and drove straight at police when the deputy who had gotten out of his car started firing. Koffi continued accelerating and struck the CHP vehicle as the deputy fired his weapon, according to police.

Koffi was struck at least three times through the windshield and was airlifted to the hospital, along with the first woman he ran over. He was listed in critical condition at an area hospital. The woman received significant injuries, but were not life-threatening, according to the sheriff’s office.

“If this guy had kept going who knows what he could have done to other people,” Crum told KTVU, “He was just blatantly just going after people, driving after them.”

The security guard and second woman hit by the truck were transported to a local hospital by ground ambulance and were expected to survive their injuries. Koffi’s friend in the house treated their own injuries.

The officer-involved shooting is under investigation by Santa Rosa Police and the Sonoma County District Attorney’s Office, while the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the assaults and events leading up to the shooting. The deputy has been identified as Jason Pasero, an 18-year veteran of law enforcement who served for 14  with the San Bruno Police Department before being hired by the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office four years ago.

Koffi’s Facebook page shows he is a Stanford-educated software engineer who worked at Microsoft before now working as an engineer at YouTube.

The sheriff’s office said the incident was captured on video and intends to release the deputy’s body-worn camera footage.
