Small plane lands on water near Maryland beach in front of onlookers

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.

Deihl brought the aircraft down toward the water and skidded for several feet before it stopped off an Ocean City beach.

He reportedly had been flying from Reedville to the Ocean City Airport when the engine trouble began. The plane has been recovered, and the Federal Aviation Administration was notified of the incident.

Ocean City is about 140 miles southeast of Washington, D.C.

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.

Photos of New York teenager’s corpse still being shared online: reports

Photos showing the corpse of a teenager allegedly killed by a man she’d met on Instagram continued to spread online on Tuesday amid efforts to curb their posting, according to reports.

Using the hashtag #yesjuliet, the gory pictures were redistributed widely, including by online posters making light of or celebrating the death of the teen, who had a small social media following in upstate New York.

Others urged people to stop circulating the images, seen on online chat sites including 4chan and Discord.

Discord users who saw the photos Sunday morning alerted police.

IS ‘FLESH-EATING’ BACTERIA HEADING TO A BEACH NEAR YOU?

Instagram spokeswoman Stephanie Otway told Fox News via email that her social media platform had blocked the hashtag #yesjuliet for attempting to spread the images.

But Rolling Stone reported that photos were still being circulated Tuesday, even via Twitter.

“On the Instagram side, we’re using technology that allows us to find other images that are visually similar to the original image posted and automatically remove them when people attempt to upload them,” Otway told Fox News. “When our teams become aware of other images from this incident on other social media sites, we are hashing them as a preventative measure to stop this content from being uploaded to Instagram.”

Utica police said they are working to address the sharing of the images with various Internet platforms.

Utica Police Lt. Bryan Coromato told Fox News via email Tuesday night, “We are working to stay in contact with all platforms where these photos are appearing to have them removed, hoping to keep the exposure to a minimum.”

Bianca Devins was killed, allegedly by a man she’d met recently on Instagram, who then posted photos of her corpse online, police said. (Instagram)

The teen was identified as Bianca Devins, Utica Police Sgt. Michael Curley said. He identified Brandon Clark, 21, as the suspect in her slaying.

Devins and Clark met on Instagram about two months ago, police said.

Initially, they were online acquaintances only, but the “relationship progressed into a personally intimate one,” police said. “They had spent time together, and were acquainted with each other’s families.”

Utica Police told Fox News they were continuing to examine the backgrounds of the pair and their relationship.

Police were also working to nail down the events of Saturday night through early Sunday.

The two, Devins and Carl, allegedly attended a concert together Saturday night in New York City and got into an argument. They arrived back in Utica early Sunday and went to a spot on a dead-end street, according to the police statement.

There, they argued until Clark used a large knife to kill the teenager, police said. Authorities began receiving calls around 7:20 a.m. Sunday, reporting that a man posted on a social media site that he’d killed someone.

The case is being investigated as a murder and attempted suicide, Coromato said.

Clark was charged with second-degree murder Monday night, police said. It was unclear whether the suspect had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

Indiana police officer who fatally shot black man resigns, union says, due to stress, media attention

Westlake Legal Group 1000 Indiana police officer who fatally shot black man resigns, union says, due to stress, media attention fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/indiana fox-news/us fnc/us fnc Associated Press article 6380d46d-f62c-56e0-badd-0ef8c4335b1f

A white Indiana police officer who fatally shot a black man, sparking protests and roiling the presidential campaign of South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, has resigned, the local police union announced Monday.

The Fraternal Order of Police said Sgt. Ryan O’Neill’s resignation from the South Bend Police Department was due to stress and media attention given to last month’s shooting of Eric Logan. The union also pointed to “hateful things said on social media.”

SOUTH BEND POLICE CALL OUT BUTTIGIEG FOR SENDING PIZZA RATHER THAN APOLOGY AFTER RACE COMMENTS

“Sgt. O’Neill did his job and was forced to defend his own life from a convicted felon who was armed with an eight-inch hunting knife,” FOP president Harvey Mills said in a release. “We’re confident that the investigation into the shooting will determine that the action he took was justified based on the law and his training.”

Police Chief Scott Ruszkowski confirmed he received O’Neill’s resignation letter and that his departure was effective immediately.

Authorities have said O’Neill was responding to a report of a person breaking into cars on June 16 and confronted the 54-year-old Logan, and that the officer said he shot Logan after he refused orders to drop a knife.

BUTTIGIEG FACING SCRUTINY AS FAMILY OF BLACK MAN KILLED BY COPS PLANS LAWSUIT AGAINST CITY

A judge has appointed a special prosecutor to investigate the shooting, which authorities said was not recorded by O’Neill’s body camera. Protesters, in the wake of the shooting, have called for police reforms and questioned South Bend’s body camera and use of force policies.

The shooting prompted Buttigieg, who’s seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, to leave the campaign trail for several days to answer questions about public safety and race.

In a statement Monday, Buttigieg said efforts to strengthen trust between law enforcement and community members continue.

“We will await results of the independent criminal investigation, and apply any lessons learned to our work on the future of the Police Department and the community,” he said in the statement.

Logan’s brother, Tyree Bonds, said the family still will pursue a federal lawsuit that alleges O’Neill used excessive deadly force. The city of South Bend is also named in the lawsuit.

Natural gas explosion at California home kills worker, injures 15 others

A gas company worker was killed and more than a dozen people were hurt when a natural gas explosion leveled a home in Southern California on Monday, according to officials.

The blast took place shortly after noon in Murrieta, located about 80 miles southeast of Los Angeles. Firefighters and Southern California Gas Co. workers had gone to the home after a report that a contractor had damaged a gas line.

SoCalGas officials told FOX11 the contractor did not call 811, a phone number to notify utility companies about projects that involve digging so that the utility companies can safely mark all buried lines, before him and his team began digging.

Shortly after crews arrived, an explosion killed one SoCalGas employee and injured another. Murrieta Deputy Fire Chief David Lantzer said 15 people were injured in total, including three firefighters.

The explosion sent up a wall of fire and smoke and rocked nearby homes before the gas was shut off and the fire doused more than an hour later.

Neighbors said the explosion shattered windows throughout the neighborhood. Jessica Molstad who lives nearby told FOX11 that, at first, she thought the blast was an earthquake after other recent temblors.

Kevin McKinney, 63, lives in a home next door that was damaged by the blast. There was “just a huge, huge explosion and then I heard screams and went outside,” he told the Riverside Press-Enterprise.

In a statement posted to Twitter, SoCalGas said its “deepest sympathies are with all those impacted by the Murrieta incident.”

“Sadly, we lost one of our technicians today. He will be greatly missed,” the company said. “We urge all contractors & homeowners to call 811 to have utility lines marked prior to digging of any sort.”

The identification of the worker that was killed has not yet been released. The investigation into the deadly blast is ongoing.

Holocaust history now required in Oregon schools after law championed by teen, concentration camp survivor

Westlake Legal Group AP98929682957 Holocaust history now required in Oregon schools after law championed by teen, concentration camp survivor Ryan Gaydos fox-news/us/us-regions/west/oregon fox-news/us/education fox-news/topic/holocaust fox-news/politics/state-and-local/governors fox news fnc/us fnc article 27301261-9cdf-50e6-85ed-fb5995fa80a5

Oregon public schools will now be required to teach students about the Holocaust, and other genocides throughout history, after the passage of a new bill signed into law by Gov. Kate Brown on Monday.

Claire Sarnowski, 14, of Lake Oswego, initially introduced the law she and 92-year-old Holocaust survivor Alter Wiener devised. Wiener, who died in December after being struck by a car, had developed a friendship with Sarnowski after the teen attended one of his talks about having survived three years in a concentration camp.

JONBENÉT RAMSEY’S FORMER PHOTOGRAPHER INDICTED ON CHILD PORN CHARGES

Sarnowski argued Holocaust education should be required in schools to ensure the horrors of history aren’t repeated.

“Learning about genocide teaches students the ramifications that come with prejudice of any kind in society,” Sarnowski said.

Now that the law is in place, schools will have to introduce Holocaust education beginning in the 2020-2021 school year. Schools are required to “prepare students to confront the immorality of the Holocaust, genocide, and other acts of mass violence and to reflect on the causes of related historical events” and encourage cultural diversity and emphasize the importance of protecting international human rights.

FLORIDA PRINCIPAL REASSIGNED AFTER HE TOLD PARENT HE ‘CAN’T SAY THE HOLOCAUST IS A FACTUAL, HISTORICAL EVENT’

“Today more than ever, we need the learning opportunities that a bill like this will bring to our schools,” Brown said at a signing ceremony.

The bill comes amid a recent poll in which two-thirds of American millennials surveyed could not identify what the Auschwitz concentration camp was, according to the Associated Press.

Earlier this month, a Florida high school principal was removed from his job after he reportedly refused to say the Holocaust actually happened because “not everyone believes” the historical event – in which six million people were killed – actually happened.

“I can’t say the Holocaust is a factual, historical event because I am not in a position to do so as a school district employee,” William Latson, principal of Spanish River High School in Boca Raton, wrote in an email later published by The Palm Beach Post. “Not everyone believes the Holocaust happened and you have your thoughts but we are a public school and not all of our parents have the same beliefs so they will react differently, my thoughts or beliefs have nothing to do with this because I am a public servant,” the principal said. “I have the role to be politically neutral but support all groups in the school.”

Latson added: “I do allow information about the Holocaust to be presented and allow students and parents to make decisions about it accordingly.” He said he does the “same with information about slavery.”

In another email, Latson said the school’s curriculum, which reportedly includes Holocaust education in English and history classes, “is to be introduced but not forced upon individuals as we all have the same rights but not all the same beliefs.”

In Eric Garner case, Justice Department declines civil rights charges against New York City police officer

The U.S. Department of Justice will not bring civil rights charges against the New York City police officer involved in the death of Eric Garner, a person familiar with the case confirmed to Fox News.

Garner, 43, died in 2014 during his arrest for selling loose, untaxed cigarettes outside a Staten Island convenience store. He refused to be handcuffed, and officers took him down.

In a video taken by a bystander, Garner was heard crying out “I can’t breathe” at least 11 times before he fell unconscious. The phrase has since become a rallying cry among those protesting perceived racial injustices perpetrated by police departments nationwide.

Garner was black; the police officer, Daniel Pantaleo, is white.

FLASHBACK: ERIC GARNER CHOKEHOLD DEATH: NO INDICTMENT FOR NYPD COP, DOJ TO OPEN CIVIL RIGHTS PROBE

The decision not to bring charges against Pantaleo comes a day before the statute of limitations was set to expire, marking five years since the encounter that led to Garner’s death.

A state grand jury also refused to indict the officer on criminal charges.

Garner’s family and attorney were meeting with federal prosecutors Tuesday morning, while a news conference was planned later with the Rev. Al Sharpton, where they are expected to address the outcome.

ERICA GARNER, DAUGHTER OF NYPD CHOKEHOLD VICTIM, DIES AFTER SUFFERING HEART ATTACK

Pantaleo’s attorney, Stuart London, told the Associated Press that he was not immediately aware of the decision.

Chokeholds are banned under police policy. Pantaleo maintained he used a legal takedown maneuver called the “seatbelt.”

The medical examiner’s office has said a chokehold contributed to Garner’s death.

The New York Police Department brought Pantaleo up on departmental charges earlier this year. An administrative judge has not ruled whether he violated policy. He could face dismissal, but Police Commissioner James O’Neill has the final say.

In the years since Garner’s death, Pantaleo has remained on the job but not in the field, and activists have decried the fact he’s still being issued paychecks that include union-negotiated raises.

Authorities say troopers then noticed the smell of drugs coming from the vehicle. Authorities say a passenger surrendered some marijuana and an ensuing vehicle search uncovered crystal meth, cocaine and drug paraphernalia. Eric Larue, Lakiza Williams, and Willie Green Jr. were all arrested on charges including child endangerment.

Missouri woman hunts down thieves, steals car back: report

A Missouri woman with no background in police work tracked down the suspects who stole her car, then stole the car right back, according to a Monday report.

Kansas City resident Danielle Reno told KCTV5 that her Toyota 4Runner was stolen while she was at a gas station with her daughter.

“I got out of my car, grabbed my daughter, and my car was gone,” Reno said.

Reno filed a report with authorities, then took matters into her own hands, the station reported.

By tracking purchases on her credit cards and the activity of her phone – which were in the stolen vehicle – Reno said she managed to narrow in on the suspects.

“We stalked this lady for 48 hours. She had no idea what we were doing,” Reno said.

A QuickTrip attendant told Reno the car thieves were on their way to an Applebee’s, KCTV5 reported. At the restaurant, Reno said she saw one of the suspects walk in with her wallet and keys.

“Got our waters and she walked in the door,” Reno said. “I about had a heart attack.”

Reno said left the restaurant and took back her car. She told KCTV5 that the interior of the car had been thrashed and she didn’t want to drive it anymore.

Clay County deputies reportedly arrested the suspects. Authorities told KCTV5 that citizens are ill-advised to conduct investigations on their own, but noted that Reno never put herself in danger.
