Property searched after suspect linked to Washington mom’s 2009 disappearance

Investigators on Friday finished searching the western Washington state property of a suspect being held in connection with a 10-year-old cold case.

The suspect, identified as Eric Lee Roberts, was recently arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder in the 2009 disappearance of Nancy Moyer, a mother who worked for the state Department of Ecology south of Seattle, according to People magazine.

Roberts reportedly confessed to the killing this week then recanted. He was being held on $1.5 million bail.

The suspect is a former co-worker and neighbor of Moyer, Seattle’s Q13 Fox reported.

Roberts called 911 this week to admit her murdered Moyer, whose body was never found. He said he was “tired of holding it inside,” People reported.

He allegedly told a detective that he accidentally strangled Moyer with a scarf during “rough sex.” He later said “he did not know why he said that he had killed,” her and denied they had a sexual relationship, according to charging documents, Q13 reported.

Authorities in Colorado restored an American flag to its place Friday evening after protesters demonstrating outside a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility pulled down the star-spangled banner and flew the flag of Mexico in its place.

The protesters also removed a “Blue Lives Matter” flag, honoring law enforcement, spray-painted it with the words “Abolish ICE,” then raised the flag upside-down, on a pole next to the Mexican flag, according to local media.

BUCK SEXTON: DEMS’ OBJECTION TO PLANNED ICE RAIDS A STEP TOWARD ‘MASS NULLIFICATION OF IMMIGRATION LAW’

Hundreds of protesters had gathered in Aurora, Colo., outside the federal facility that holds illegal immigrants, to protest ICE raids scheduled to begin Sunday in Denver and other major U.S. cities, FOX 31 Denver reported.

Aurora police Chief Nick Metz said the majority of protesters remained peaceful and some even thanked officers for their evening efforts.

The protest, part of a network of #LightsForLiberty events, also dubbed the “March to Close Concentration Camps,” called for detention centers at the U.S.-Mexico border to be closed and for all immigrants being held in those locations to be granted entry to the U.S., according to the event’s Facebook page.

Beginning Sunday, ICE agents will reportedly work to round up thousands of illegal immigrants across the U.S.

President Trump delayed the operation by two weeks to allow Dems to propose a bipartisan solution to the humanitarian crisis at the border.

Speaking to Fox News during his visit to the border Friday, Vice President Mike Pence said the upcoming ICE raids will not be done at random and will be focused on “removing those deported by courts.”

Besides Denver, the raids were expected to take place in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and San Francisco. Raids scheduled for New Orleans may be delayed due to Tropical Storm Barry, KCNC reported. Other #LightsForLiberty protests took place across the U.S. Friday, including in San Ysidro, Calif.; Portland, Ore.; and New York City.

Detroit man charged with first-degree murder, other felonies in LGBTQ killing

Westlake Legal Group Demetris-Nelson-1 Detroit man charged with first-degree murder, other felonies in LGBTQ killing Vandana Rambaran fox-news/us/crime fox-news/us fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/detroit fox news fnc/us fnc article 51541636-6e31-5dbb-8ebe-f8e6dd6350e7

A 26-year-old man was charged with numerous felonies, including first-degree murder and four firearm counts, for allegedly assaulting two gay men in Detroit, one of whom died.

Authorities suspect Demetris Nelson used the gay dating app Grindr to target 31-year-old Brian Anderson and 26-year-old Malcolm Drake focusing on them because of their sexual orientation.

DALLAS MAN ARRESTED IN MURDERS OF 3, INCLUDING TRANSGENDER WOMAN

During an attempted robbery on July 6, officials allege, Nelson shot and killed Anderson and critically wounded Drake. Detroit Police investigated the shooting for two days before arresting Nelson, who was arraigned on Friday.

“The allegations are that social media contacts were used to target, contact, rob, fatally shoot one gay man, and seriously wound another gay man,” Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said in a statement. “To some, this will be just another hateful and violent act in America. They will read about this case and continue to go about their day. To me, that is quite tragic.”

The case was assigned to Special Prosecutor Jaimie Powell Horowitz of the Fair Michigan Justice Project (FMJP) through a program that allows the prosecutor’s office to team up with law enforcement to tackle serious crimes against the LGBTQ community.

“We are saddened and outraged by this despicable crime. This case is just the most recent example of how members of Detroit’s LGBTQ community are too often targets of violence,” Alanna Maguire from the Fair Michigan Project, told Fox 2.

Tropical Storm Barry: 3 hurricane myths debunked

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6040318928001_6040327758001-vs Tropical Storm Barry: 3 hurricane myths debunked Madeline Farber fox-news/weather fox-news/us/disasters/hurricanes-typhoons fox news fnc/us fnc e88a9c87-efec-5194-b390-976099e3ca86 article

Tropical Storm Barry is heading toward the Louisiana coast, likely bringing with it torrential rain and flooding.

Ahead of its landfall, the storm — which is forecast to be a hurricane when its center reaches the coast — has prompted Brock Long, a former Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) administrator, to address and debunk three of the biggest myths about hurricanes.

Read on for a look at the common misconceptions.

TROPICAL STORM BARRY PROMPTS STORM SURGE, FLOOD WARNINGS: WHY IS NEW ORLEANS AT AN INCREASED RISK? 

Taping windows will help protect your home

False.

While Long encourages homeowners to protect windows and doors from being penetrated or damaged “at all costs,” he noted that “taping windows [does] no good.”

If the windows were to break during the storm, the tape over the glass could create bigger — potentially more dangerous — shards of glass to form.

Rather, Long recommends using plywood or hurricane shutters to protect the home. Even better, cutting plywood and drilling holes ahead of time is “the smart and prudent thing to do,” he added, as this decreases the chance of competing with others who are out purchasing the necessary supplies shortly before the storm is predicted to make landfall.

The biggest danger during a hurricane is the wind 

Not so fast, says Long.

Hurricanes are categorized using the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, or a “1 to 5 rating based on a hurricane’s sustained wind speed,” per the National Hurricane Center, which also noted this scale estimates potential property damage.

Though strong winds can have a significant impact, “wind is responsible for much of the structural damage caused by hurricanes,” according to The Weather Channel — storm surges and rainfall-induced flooding are also major — and potentially deadly — hazards.

“This is the biggest myth. Because hurricane intensity is classified by wind, people think that’s the most dangerous hazard,” said Long.

A storm surge is the “abnormal rise in seawater level during a storm,” according to the National Ocean Service. It’s measured by how high the water reaches from the normal astronomical tide.

Storm surges accounted for about half (49 percent) of deaths from Atlantic tropical hurricanes from 1963 to 2012, per a 2014 study by the National Hurricane Center. Even more of the deaths  — 90 percent — “occurred in water-related incidents, most by drowning,” the study found. Deaths by “non-tornadic” winds account between 5 and 10 percent of the fatalities.

Drowning, specifically, accounted for the majority of deaths during Hurricane Katrina — among the deadliest in U.S. history —  in 2005, according to a 2008 study

It’s OK to wait to heed an evacuation order 

Heeding evacuations orders sooner rather than later is the best plan of action.

“Heed warnings early; those who delay are going to be waiting along with the majority of others,” Long urged.

TROPICAL STORM BARRY’S PATH: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW 

Even better, “don’t necessarily wait for the order — if you can indicate one is coming, heed it early. In some cases, you don’t have to evacuate very far,” he added. “The goal with evacuations is to get out of areas that are vulnerable to flooding and into a facility that can withstand the wind.”

Jeffrey Epstein’s private Caribbean island had mysterious safe, former employee claims

An employee who reportedly worked at Jeffrey Epstein’s secluded Caribbean island claims the wealthy financier – who is accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls – kept a mysterious safe inside the main residence.

The revelation comes as Little St. James Island in St. Thomas is going under the microscope in the wake of Epstein’s recent arrest. The 66-year-old was known to frequent the lush property in the U.S. Virgin Islands – and the employee, speaking to Bloomberg, suggested that a steel safe inside his office there may have stored more than just cash.

Outside of rare visits by housekeepers, no one – the employee claimed – was allowed to enter the room where that steel safe was said to be located.

Epstein started transforming Little St. James Island after he bought it more than two decades ago — clearing the native vegetation, ringing the property with towering palm trees and planting two massive U.S. flags on either end.

LABOR SECRETARY ACOSTA ANNOUNCES HE WILL STEP DOWN AMID CRITICISM OVER EPSTEIN PLEA DEAL

He also built a stone mansion with cream-colored walls and a bright turquoise roof surrounded by several other structures, including the maids’ quarters and a massive, square-shaped white building on one end of the island. Workers there, the Associated Press reports, told each other it was a music room fitted with a grand piano and acoustic walls, whose gold dome flew off during the deadly 2017 hurricane season.

The employee that spoke to Bloomberg said when Epstein would visit the property, he would walk around shirtless in shorts and flip-flops, and had a rule that he should never catch sight of the staff that maintained the place.

Sometimes, the employee added, women would sunbathe topless or in the nude around a pool near the island’s main residence.

Many people who worked for Epstein on the island told The Associated Press this week that they had signed long non-disclosure agreements, and refused to talk. One former employee who declined to be identified said Epstein once had five boats, including a large ferry in which he transported up to 200 workers from St. Thomas to his island every day for construction work.

EPSTEIN WANTS OUT OF JAIL BEFORE TRIAL

The man said he saw a handful of young women when he was on Epstein’s property but he believed they were older than 18.

“When he was there, it was keep to yourself and do your thing,” the man recalled, adding that Epstein paid well and would give away older machinery and surplus including lumber to his employees.

Government documents and ledgers show Little St. James Island was once known as Mingo Cay. In April 1998, a company called L.S.J. LLC bought it for $7.95 million. Additional documents showed that Epstein is the sole member of L.S.J., with his signature reminiscent of an infinity loop.

Epstein later bought neighboring Great St. James Island, which once was popular with locals and tourists for its main attraction, Christmas Cove, a place where you could hang out and order pizza and have it delivered via boat.

“He wasn’t well received,” recalled Spencer Consolvo, a St. Thomas native who runs a tourist shop near a large marina. “People think he’s too rich to be policed properly.”

Locals recalled seeing Jeffery Epstein’s black helicopter flying back and forth from the international airport in St. Thomas to his helipad on Little St. James Island, where he built a cream-colored mansion with a bright turquoise roof surrounded by several other structures including the maids’ quarters and a massive, square-shaped white building on one end of the island that some say is a music room fitted with acoustic walls.

According to public records obtained by the AP, the island was once worth $3 million and owned by a woman who died in a chalet in Switzerland. The island had been divided into parcels and given to three people and was later sold to Epstein.

Federal authorities consider the smaller of the two islands to be Epstein’s primary residence in the United States, a place where at least one alleged victim said in a court affidavit that she participated in an orgy, as well as had sex with Epstein and other people. She said she saw former U.S. President Bill Clinton on the island, but that she never saw him having sex with anyone. A Clinton spokesman has issued a statement saying he never visited there.

South Carolina deputy saves choking 12-day-old infant after stopping speeding vehicle

A South Carolina sheriff’s deputy is being hailed as a hero after a dramatic video showed how his quick thinking saved the life of a 12-day-old baby girl last month.

Deputy W. Kimbro with the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office pulled a vehicle over on June 11 in the Summerville area for speeding. After the car stopped, one of the passengers exited and explained to Kimbro that they were rushing a small infant to hospital after she was found choking and had stopped breathing.

Kimbro immediately jumped into action, “Let me have the baby.”

In the footage released Thursday, the deputy was captured on his own body cam feeling for a pulse before beginning to massage 12-day-old Riley’s chest. He attempts to open the child’s airway by lifting her neck and inserting his finger in her mouth.

“As long as she’s crying like that she’s breathing,” he can be heard saying

According to the girl’s mother, the infant was in her bassinet sleeping when she went to go take a shower. The woman’s stepmother alerted her when she said that the baby was choking on what might have been milk.

“Her lips are a little blue, I’m worried about her circulation,” Kimbro could be heard telling another deputy.

“Come on, come on baby. She’s breathing as long as she’s crying like that she’s breathing but I’m worried about her because it looks like she’s going in and out,” he continued.

The infant can be seen making small movements and crying every so often but there is one point in the video where she appears to stop moving altogether.

Kimbro clears her airway of saliva and continues to tap on her chest to keep her awake. Again, the infant starts to cry.

“She’s okay, I think she’s going to be okay,” Kimbro said.

The newborn’s chest begins to move and the deputy seems confident that she can now breath. She makes a dramatic movement and stretches her arms out, appearing to signal she’s okay.

“I didn’t feel a heartbeat earlier so I started massaging her heart and now I feel it’s real strong now,” Kimbro told the worried mother.

EMS arrived on the scene shortly after and took over.

“Because of Deputy Kimbro’s steadfast, professional and heroic response, the 12-day old baby was able to live. Please join us in congratulating Deputy Kimbro for his gallant actions that prolonged human life,” the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post.

Deputy Kimbro was awarded the “Life-Saving Medal” for his actions.

Donkey’s July 4 death may prompt new laws on loud noises

The noise was probably too much for Sammy the Donkey, a Georgia farmer says.

John Bogino of Seven Gables Farm north of Atlanta says Sammy (short for Sambuca) probably couldn’t take the explosions from nearby Fourth of July fireworks.

“The sounds were really loud, and I suspect he got scared out there and probably died of fright or heart attack,” Bogino told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Bogino says he wishes people would think about animals before they organize such holiday celebrations – especially in farming areas.

Just two years ago, the mayor of Milton, Ga., asked the city’s equestrian committee to work with state lawmakers on potential solutions to protect livestock and other animals, the newspaper reported.

Prior to the holiday, the city emailed the following message: “While the sights and sounds are exciting for most of us, fireworks can be less enjoyable for both large and small animals.”

While Sammy couldn’t be saved, Bogino is hoping other animals will be spared next time there’s a loud celebration in town.

“We think there may be more,” a source told The Post. “They can see it’s in [the rocks].”

President Trump declares state of emergency in Louisiana, sends federal assistance ahead of Tropical Storm Barry

President Trump declared a federal emergency for Louisiana on Thursday night, authorizing the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Emergency Management Agency to coordinate all disaster relief efforts ahead of the strengthening of Tropical Storm Barry.

Trump approved the federal assistance at the request of Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, who noted that within the past 24 hours, 28 parishes had issued emergency declarations and 14 were in the process of doing so. Residents have been stacking sandbags or fleeing to higher ground in preparation for torrential downpours, with heavy flooding expected once the storm makes landfall from the Gulf of Mexico either late Friday or early Saturday.

HURRICANE WATCH IN LOUISIANA, MANDATORY EVACUATIONS ISSUED AS BARRY EXPECTED TO DROP UP TO 20 INCHES OF RAIN

Trump tweeted Thursday evening: “To everyone on the Gulf Coast: As you make preparations to protect your homes & loved ones from flooding & the coming storm, it is imperative that you heed the directions of @FEMA, State & Local Officials. We are working closely w/ them. Please be prepared, be careful, & be SAFE!”

Edwards expressed appreciation for the president’s action in a Twitter message of his own.

“Thank you President Trump for quickly responding to my request for a federal disaster declaration,” the Democrat wrote. “We appreciate the support of the White House and our federal partners as we continue our unprecedented flood fight and respond to Tropical Storm.”

Edwards had declared a state of emergency Wednesday, authorizing activating up to 3,000 soldiers and airmen from the Louisiana National Guard ahead of the storm, Baton Rouge’s WBRZ-TV reported. National Guard troops and rescue crews in high-water vehicles took up positions around the state as Louisiana braced for the arrival of the storm.

Barry could pack winds of about 75 mph, just barely over the threshold for a hurricane, when it comes ashore, making it a Category 1 storm, forecasters said. It is expected to bring more than a foot and a half of rain in potentially ruinous downpours that could go on for hours as the storm passes through the metropolitan area of nearly 1.3 million people and pushes inland.

The National Weather Service said it expects the Mississippi River to rise to 19 feet by Saturday morning at a key gauge in the New Orleans area, which is protected by levees 20 to 25 feet high. Though it is not expected to grow into a major hurricane, the storm’s torrential rains are expected to test New Orleans’ improved post-Katrina flood defenses. 

Hurricane Katrina caused catastrophic flooding in New Orleans in 2005 and was blamed for more than 1,800 deaths in Louisiana and other states, by some estimates. In its aftermath, the Army Corps of Engineers began a multibillion-dollar hurricane-protection system that isn’t complete. The work included repairs and improvements to some 350 miles of levees and more than 70 pump stations that are used to remove floodwaters.

New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell said Barry’s heavy rains will put an extreme test to the pumping system that drains the city’s streets. The city does not plan to order evacuation because Barry is not expected to grow into a major hurricane. Officials instead advised people to keep at least three days of supplies on hand and to keep their neighborhood storm drains clear so water can move quickly.
