Home invasion suspect who was thwarted by 11-year-old on the loose after walking out of hospital

Authorities in North Carolina are looking for a suspect who walked out of a hospital on Friday night after an 11-year-old struck him in the head with a machete in a foiled home invasion.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook that 19-year-old Jataveon Dashawn Hall walked out of UNC-Chapel Hill Hospital “against medical advice” shortly before 8 p.m. Hall had been hospitalized for treatment of a head wound since about 1 p.m., initially at UNC-Hillsborough hospital before being transferred to the Chapel Hill facility due to the severity of his injury.

“Our agency is very concerned about the events in this case,” Chief Deputy Sykes said in a statement Sunday. “Effective immediately, we will institute policy changes necessary to protect the public in situations like this. We expected to be notified prior to Hall’s discharge.”

MACHETE-WIELDING 11-YEAR-OLD FOILS NORTH CAROLINA HOME INVASION

Hall, who is 6 feet tall and weighs 135 pounds, had his head wrapped in a bandage when he walked out of the hospital carrying a cup of water, according to police.

The sheriff’s office said they were notified when the 19-year-old initially arrived at the hospital, but had no legal authority to hold him in custody at the time as he was only a suspect. By that afternoon, police said enough information was established to seek warrants for breaking and entering and assault.

Deputies were then planning to be at the hospital at the time of discharge and take Hall into custody but were told early Saturday morning that the 19-year-old had actually left the night before.

The sheriff’s office said that Hall had told a nurse he needed to leave because “the police were going to be looking for him.”

“When Hall left the hospital Friday evening against medical advice, we certainly should have been notified. But most concerning of all is that hospital police did not even know Hall had left the premises almost 10 hours prior,” Sykes said. “Indeed, Hall’s absence was only discovered when we placed a phone call to them.”

NYPD OFFICERS’ SUICIDES PROMPT TOP COP TO CITE ‘MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS’

UNC Health Care said in a statement the suspect was not under guard while hospitalized in the department’s emergency department.

“This patient was admitted to the ED, but was in the legal custody of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department which did not place an officer with him,” the organization told The News & Observer. “In similar situations, hospital staff will often alert law enforcement personnel when a suspect patient is discharged, but they remain the legal responsibility of law enforcement.”

The sheriff’s office said that hospital police were notified warrants were issued and were asked to call the department prior to Hall’s discharged.

“The arrangement all of our area law enforcement agencies have with hospital police of ensuring the eventual arrest of a suspect after the suspect receives medical care, has been in place for decades,” Sykes said. “I cannot remember another time when it has failed.”

Authorities said that Hall was among intruders who broke into the home Friday but was chased off when the 11-year-old boy drew blood with the machete. A woman and a second man provided the getaway vehicle for the three intruders and drove away.

The boy’s aunt, Ashley Matthews, told WTVD on Saturday she was outraged by the news that Hall had walked out.

“Who is responsible? Who should have been there watching him? Who should have been there sitting outside the emergency department? Who is responsible for allowing this criminal to walk out of UNC Hospital?” she told the television station. “We want to know who it is, and we want somebody to take responsibility.”

UNC Healthcare said that personnel are working with the sheriff’s office to “offer them assistance in this matter.” Anyone with information about Hall’s whereabouts is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at 919-245-2900.

An Illinois man accused of killing his new bride just hours after she married him has been added to the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted” list, as federal law enforcement officials disclosed Wednesday he may have fled the country.

Arnoldo Jimenez, 37, allegedly stabbed 26-year-old Estrella Carrera multiple times before leaving her in a bathtub to die at her Burbank, Illinois home on May 12, 2012, just hours after the two were wed, the FBI said in a news release.

“He has a criminal past and a history of violence,” said Special Agent Steve Barnard of the FBI’s Chicago field office. “We want to bring him to justice.”

The two were married May 11, 2012 in a city hall ceremony and then were joined by family and friends for a reception. What should have been a night of celebration, however, apparently took a turn for the worse on the way home, when officials believe the couple got into an argument in Jimenez’s black Maserati.

“We believe she was stabbed in the vehicle and then dragged back into the apartment and left bleeding in the bathtub,” Barnard said.

After Carrera didn’t pick up her children — a 2-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter —  family members asked the police to perform a wellness check on May 13, when her body was discovered in the bathtub.

The 26-year-old was found wearing the same dress she’d worn to the wedding reception.

An award of up to $100,000 is being offered for information leading to the capture of Arnoldo Jimenez, the FBI announced Wednesday. (FBI)

“He may have fled to Durango, Mexico, specifically in the area of Santiago Papasquiaro,” the FBI said. “Jimenez may also frequent Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico.”

The seven-year anniversary of Carrera’s killing falls on Mother’s Day this year. Family members said during a news conference they still have hope Jimenez will eventually be captured.

“Her children need justice for their mommy,” sister Jazmin Carrera told FOX32. “They shouldn’t be at a mass dedicated to her and sending flowers to the cemetery.”

Jimenez is now 37 years old and is described as being 6 feet tall, between 200 and 225 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes, according to the FBI. He is still considered to be “armed and dangerous,” according to federal officials.

Anyone with information about Jimenez’s whereabouts is urged to contact federal officials at 1-800-CALL-FBI or submit tips online.

The man who allegedly killed a Mississippi police officer and Air Force veteran was identified on Monday.

Darian Tawan Atkinson, 19, is accused of fatally shooting Officer Robert McKeithen, of the Biloxi Police Department, outside of the agency’s headquarters on Sunday night.

Atkinson has been charged with capital murder, and a warrant was issued for his arrest on Monday, Gulfport Police Chief Leonard Papania told reporters.

The suspect is considered “armed and dangerous,” and investigators said they “are actively pursuing him.”

“We hope he decides to surrender and let us bring him to justice,” Papania said. “He will not rest and we will not rest until he is taken to custody.”

McKeithen, whom Atkinson allegedly killed, served with the police department for 24 years and was set to retire at the end of 2019.

The 58-year-old was shot multiple times near his patrol car parking outside police headquarters and later died at a local hospital. The suspect ran off after firing several rounds, officials said.

Surveillance images released by investigators from that moment depict a man between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-10, wearing a red beanie cap, black shirt, and navy blue shorts.

“Any time you have this kind of deliberate and violent attack on a police officer, especially right in front of a police station, it should cause everyone great concern,” Papania previously said.

Biloxi Police Chief John Miller said McKeithen was among a group of officers awarded the Medal of Valor for saving four special needs children from a flooded home during Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

“That’s the kind of guy he was,” Miller said. “It was a horrible, horrible event he had to go through but he went through it anyway. And they say those children undoubtedly would have perished.”

“He was very gentle, likable, he treated people with respect and dignity and we are going to miss him sorely,” the police chief added. McKeithen leaves behind a wife, daughter, two stepsons, and a stepdaughter.

Authorities in California searching for a missing teenage girl who was last seen with two murder suspects located an abandoned vehicle connected to the trio on Friday near the border with Mexico.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Friday on Facebook that an empty white BMW 4-door sedan was found by San Diego Police in San Ysirdo.

The vehicle was the same car that Alora Benitez, 15, was last seen in on Wednesday morning with her 40-year-old mother, Maricela Mercado and a 39-year-old man identified as Roman Cerratos.

Man suspected of beheading Washington woman in survivalist bunker case found dead in California

A man suspected of using a samurai sword to kill his girlfriend last year at a survivalist bunker loaded with guns and ammo in northwest Washington was found dead in California, officials revealed Tuesday.

The Island County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release posted to Facebook a body pulled from the Feather River in Yuba City, California on April 7, 2018 has been identified as 35-year-old Jacob Gonzales.

The body was initially classified as a “John Doe” until November when investigators shared photos of tattoos on the body that led to tips that initially identified the body as Gonzales’.

Officials were eventually able to send DNA to a lab in California, which made the positive identification. Officials have not revealed a cause of death.

CAR BELONGING TO DECAPITATED WOMAN FOUND IN CALIFORNIA, CHARGES FILED IN SURVIVALIST BUNKER CASE

Gonzales had been sought by authorities in connection with the murder of 26-year-old Katherine Cunningham, whose decapitated body was discovered on March 3, 2018, near a survivalist bunker on the rural Camano Island, north of Seattle.

Near the headless corpse, investigators discovered a bunker dug into a hillside containing supplies, guns and ammo. Autopsy findings determined the 26-year-old woman’s cause of death was “homicidal violence with decapitation,” according to the coroner’s office.

“The subsequent investigation revealed that Katherine had been murdered on February 14th or 15th,” the sheriff’s office said Tuesday.

DECAPITATED BODY FOUND NEAR REMOTE AMMO-FILLED SURVIVALIST BUNKER IN WASHINGTON, POLICE SAY

Cunningham’s vehicle was found abandoned on Interstate 5 in Yreka, Calif., roughly 560 miles away on Feb. 16 and towed three days later by the California Highway Patrol, before her body was discovered.

“After Katherine was discovered, an attempt to locate was put out on her missing vehicle and the California Highway Patrol notified the Island County Sheriff’s Office that they had the vehicle,” police said. “Deputies from the Island County Sheriff’s Office recovered the vehicle from California and towed it back to Washington where Detectives obtained a search warrant.”

Inside the vehicle, authorities discovered a samurai sword wrapped in a blanket that appeared to match the type of weapon used in the killing. Testing of the sword also found Cunningham’s DNA on the blade and Gonzales’ DNA on the handle, according to the sheriff’s office.

Authorities had been seeking Gonzales since March on a $1 million warrant. He was previously charged with 5 counts of unlawful possession of a firearm and one count of motor vehicle theft.

The sheriff’s office thanked the various agencies and tips from the public that helped with the investigation, and officials thanked the victim’s family.

“We would also like to thank Katherine’s family for their patience and their tireless efforts to keep Katherine in the public’s thoughts,” officials said.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI said that Sol Pais, 18, is “considered to be extremely dangerous” after traveling to Colorado from Miami on Monday night before purchasing a pump-action shotgun and ammunition.

Pais had made threats to “commit an act of violence in the Denver metropolitan area” just days before the 20th anniversary of the attack, according to officials.

On Tuesday night, her father, in Surfside, Florida, told reporters through a closed door at the family home the experience was “like a bad dream.”

“She can come home. I think she wants to be ok,” her father told WSVN. “I think it’s maybe she has a mental problem.”

Her father, who was not identified, said the family last saw Pais on Sunday.

“They’re looking for her,” he told WSVN. “We don’t know what to do.”

A neighbor said the family moved to the area about 10 years ago, and that Pais was spotted in the neighborhood and attended Miami Beach High School.

Miami-Dade Public Schools confirmed in a statement that Pais is a senior at the high school.

“We are fully assisting the FBI in their investigation,” Miami-Dade Public Schools told CBS4. “As far as this case goes, I want to stress that, at this time, there have been no threats to M-DCPS schools. The threats appear limited to schools in Colorado.”

Another neighbor told CBS4 that Pais was a quiet person but well behaved.

“She always kept to herself. She never got in trouble at school,” Patricia Bilstin told the television station. “So surprising, and I feel sorry for the family.”

Authorities said Pais was last seen near Columbine, located just outside Denver, wearing a black T-shirt, camouflage pants and black boots. They appealed for anyone seeing her to call an FBI tip line at 303-630-6227, and said she is too dangerous to be approached by civilians. The alert also said police who come into contact with her should detain her and evaluate her mental health.

“This has become a massive manhunt…and every law enforcement agency is participating and helping in this effort,” Dean Phillips, special agent in charge of the FBI in Denver, said late Tuesday night.

Pais’ father told NBC6 he was in “disbelief” and just wanted to see his daughter again.

“She can please come home,” he said. “I think she’s going to be ok.”

A woman sought by authorities in Tennessee in connection with a 2017 murder was taken into custody early Saturday — armed and wearing just her birthday suit, according to police.

Authorities were called to a Waffle House in south Nashville near Interstate 24 after receiving a report of a naked man and woman with a weapon inside the restaurant.

Staff and customers were evacuated due to feeling threatened as the woman, later identified as 19-year-old Montessa Tate-Thornton, waved the gun around and acted erratically, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by FOX17.

Officers arriving at the restaurant found Tate-Thornton wearing no clothes and “screaming, sweating excessively and making incoherent statements,” WKRN reported.

The 19-year-old reportedly admitted to police she had used marijuana and cocaine.

Tate-Thornton had an outstanding warrant for 1st-degree murder and aggravated robbery in connection with the death of a 23-year-old man in December 2017, according to FOX17.

Police took the 18-year-old into custody without incident. Besides the charges linked to the outstanding warrant, Tate-Thornton was also charged with possession of a weapon while under the influence, public indecency, being a felon in possession of a weapon and public intoxication.

The other naked suspect at the restaurant was identified as 34-year-old Larico Nixon, who was also arrested and charged with public indecency, public intoxication and being a felon in possession of a weapon, officials said.
