Cartel member leads Mexican authorities to secret mass grave

Westlake Legal Group cartel-member-leads-mexican-authorities-to-secret-mass-grave Cartel member leads Mexican authorities to secret mass grave fox-news/world/world-regions/location-mexico fox-news/world/world-regions/latin-america fox-news/us/crime/drugs fox-news/us/crime fox-news/topic/mexican-cartel-violence fox news fnc/world fnc Elizabeth Llorente bcfd0a86-5067-5e54-87da-cad449f76c6a article

A tip from a cartel member led Mexican police to a secret site containing more than 30 graves in the state of Veracruz.

Each grave may contain several people, Mexican authorities said, according to The Daily Mail.

The site covers such a large area that Jorge Winckler, the Veracruz State attorney general, said, ‘We will begin the extraction of remains, but we do not know how long it will take us.”

Workers began digging up the area on Wednesday, and have only recovered remains from about 10 percent of the entire area were many more graves are believed to be, the newspaper said.

Secret mass graves have become commonplace in Mexico, where tens of thousands of people are reported missing. Cartels tend to be behind the secret grave sites, where they discard people they kidnapped or rivals they have killed.

Lucia Diaz, whose son, Guillermo Lagunes Dias, has been missing since he was kidnapped in 2013, was quoted by The Daily Mail as saying: ‘It shows what we already know — that Veracruz is strewn with corpses. That is the reality of the state and of Mexico.”

CRUELTY OF EL CHAPO’S SINALOA CARTEL KNOWS NO BOUNDS  

The discovery of the mass grave in Veracruz comes just days after Mexican officials confirmed the discovery of up to 30 bodies in clandestine burial sites in the state of Sonora.

Veracruz has been the scene of bloody turf battles between the Zeta and Jalisco drug cartels, but the state also has suffered waves of kidnappings and extortions. In September, authorities found a mass grave — one of the largest in recent years — with 168 human skulls in Veracruz State. Prosecutors found the field after a witness told them that “hundreds of bodies” were buried there. Investigators used drones, probes and ground-penetrating radar to locate the pits.

Violence in Mexico has worsened in the last year, with homicides running at their highest rate on record and surpassing the previous peak set in 2011.

Earlier this month, a woman with gunshot wounds was executed inside an ambulance in Mexico’s Pacific state of Guerrero, and paramedics were reportedly beaten by the perpetrators.

Recently, the archdiocese of the central state of Puebla said in a statement that Rev. Ambrosio Arellano Espinoza, a 78-year-old priest, was apparently tortured during a robbery attempt. It said he had been found with severe burns on his hands and feet, but was at a hospital in stable but serious condition.

While hundreds of mass grave sites date back to the height of the drug war from 2010 to 2016, some are more recent.

A Florida sheriff’s deputy is on restricted duty after cellphone video shows him banging the head of a pepper-sprayed teen against the ground.

Broward County sheriff’s deputy Christopher Krickovich was ordered Friday to surrender his gun and badge while Thursday’s fight is investigated.

The video shows Krickovich and Sgt. Greg Lacerra amid a crowd of mostly African American high school students outside a suburban Fort Lauderdale McDonald’s after a fight.

The video shows Lacerra pushing a teen’s head as he rises from the ground. The teen appears to say something to Lacerra, who sprays his face and throws him to the ground. Krickovich jumps on the teen, twice slamming his forehead and punching him.

The teen was charged with assaulting a police officer. Krickovich’s union didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.

An Alabama teenager who was charged in the 2016 murder of his parents only to have those charges dropped last year says he believes the town sheriff is still looking for ways to put him in jail.

Jesse “Madison” Holton, then 17, was accused of gunning down his parents Michael and April Holton in their home in Eclectic, Alabama in September 2016.

Michael Holton, the former mayor of the town, was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head. April Holton, 37, died a day later from severe head trauma.

DNA LEADS TO ARREST IN COLD CASE MURDERS OF TWO ALABAMA GIRLS, REPORTS SAY

The killings rocked the tiny town and many believe Holton is to blame.

The case will be highlighted on NBC’s “Dateline,” airing Friday night.

Authorities at the time said that Holton threw a party – which involved drugs and alcohol – without his parents’ permission. The couple returned home to find their house in complete disarray.  Michael Horton called the sheriff’s department and when authorities arrived, they found the father had handcuffed the son and told officers he planned on signing a juvenile warrant the following morning.

ALABAMA TEACHER ARRESTED AFTER GUN DISCHARGES IN HIS POCKET INSIDE A CLASSROOM OF FIRST GRADERS

The deputy left but about a half hour later, a neighbor called the cops to say Holton showed up and claimed his parents were fighting. The police officer returned to the scene and found Michael Holton dead of a gunshot wound to the head and his wife April critically wounded.

Holton told authorities that his father shot his mother before turning the gun on himself. However, investigators doubted his story and said the physical evidence at the scene didn’t match up to Holton’s recollection of what happened.

Holton was charged with his parents’ deaths but in October the district attorney dropped the charges.

“From the beginning, this case has been open to interpretation as to what is actually the truth…either Jesse Holton killed his father and mother; the father of Jesse Holton killed Jesse’s mother then Jesse killed his father; or the father of Jesse Holton killed Jesse’s mother and then killed himself,” Elmore County District Attorney Randall Houston wrote in a statement.

“My office has reason to believe any of these three scenarios could have occurred, but we have no proof to support any of the three theories beyond a reasonable doubt… Therefore, we are ethically obligated to dismiss the murder charges against Jesse Holton.”

Though the charges were dropped Horton tells “Dateline” he has “no doubt in my mind that the sheriff will try to put me back in jail.”

Wife wields piece of firewood to end fight between brothers

Authorities say a wild squabble between two West Virginia brothers came to an abrupt end when one of their wives cracked her brother-in-law in the head with a log.

A criminal complaint filed Thursday by the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office says 48-year-old Edward Guy Cornish is facing multiple charges after a fight with his brother in Elkview.

The complaint says Cornish first pointed a rifle at his brother but the brother was able to wrestle the gun away. Deputies say Cornish then pulled out a large knife and tried to stab his brother.

That’s when the brother’s wife hit Cornish in the head with a piece of firewood, knocking him over.

Cornish left before authorities arrived but was arrested after returning to the scene.

He has requested a public defender but hasn’t been assigned a lawyer yet.

A 23-year-old man who authorities say impersonated a long-missing child has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Brian Michael Rini (REE’-nee), of Medina (meh-DY’-nuh), Ohio, was arraigned Friday in Cincinnati. He was indicted this week on two counts of lying to federal agents and one count of aggravated identity theft.

Magistrate Karen Litkovitz advised Rini of his rights before asking his federal public defender for his plea.

He was initially arrested on a single false statement count after DNA testing proved he wasn’t Timmothy Pitzen, an Aurora, Illinois, boy who disappeared in 2011 at age 6.

The federal magistrate earlier this month cited Rini’s lack of a permanent address, past mental health issues and “a lengthy criminal history” that goes back to age 13 as she ordered him held without bond.

The Latest: Couple who shackled children get life in prison

The Latest on the sentencing of a California couple who starved and abused a dozen of their children for years (all times local):

10:26 a.m.

A California couple who pleaded guilty to years of torture and abuse of 12 of their 13 children have been sentenced to life in prison with possibility of parole after 25 years.

David and Louise Turpin were sentenced Friday during an emotional hearing that saw some of the children speak publicly about the abuse for the first time.

Louise Turpin wept as she apologized for hurting her children, while her husband David Turpin struggled to give a short statement.

One of their daughters, weeping, said in court that “My parents took my whole life from me but now I’m taking my life back.”

The sentencing came just over a year after the Turpins’ 17-year-old daughter jumped out of a window of the family’s squalid home and called 911. She reported that some of her siblings were chained to their beds and that she hadn’t bathed in months.

10:18 a.m.

A California couple convicted of abusing 12 of their children has apologized at their sentencing after hearing from some of the victims.

David Turpin’s lawyer read part of a statement because he was too upset. “My homeschooling and discipline had good intentions,” he said. “I’m sorry if I’ve done anything to cause them harm.”

Louise Turpin spoke for herself, saying, “I’m sorry for everything I’ve done to hurt my children. I love my children so much. … I only want the best for them.

The Turpins are expected to be sentenced to at least 25 years in prison. They pleaded guilty in February to torture and other abuse that was uncovered when their 17-year-old daughter jumped out a window and called 911.

10:10 a.m.

Several children of a California couple convicted of torturing them for years gave emotional statements at their parents’ sentencing Friday.

Louise Turpin wept and David Turpin wiped his eyes as the children spoke, with one of them saying: “My parents took my whole life from me but now I’m taking my life back.”

Some of the other children said they still love their parents. One asked for a lighter sentence because “they believed everything they did was to protect us.”

It’s the first time the children have spoken publicly since the arrest of their parents, David and Louise Turpin. They have the right to address the court to say how they’ve been impacted by the abuse.

The Turpins are expected to be sentenced to at least 25 years in prison. They pleaded guilty in February to torture and other abuse that was uncovered when their 17-year-old daughter jumped out a window and called 911.

12:01 a.m.

A California couple who starved a dozen of their children and shackled some to beds face sentencing for years of abuse.

David and Louise Turpin are due Friday in Riverside County Superior Court for a proceeding that is largely a formality.

The couple pleaded guilty in February to torture and other abuse and agreed to serve at least 25 years in prison.

The abuse was uncovered last year when one of the couple’s 13 children jumped out a window and called 911. The 17-year-old girl had lived such an isolated life that she didn’t know her address and didn’t know what medication meant.

Most of the children ranging in age from 2 to 29 were severely underweight and hadn’t bathed for months. The house reeked of human waste.

A 42-year-old man has been charged with critically wounding a fellow student at a university in Chicago.

Chicago police say Dejuan Doby pulled out a knife while in a classroom Tuesday at East-West University and stabbed a 20-year-old student in the back. Doby faces one count of attempted first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated battery.

Responding police officers arrested the Chicago resident at the school. The classmate was taken to a hospital in critical condition, but university officials have since said his condition has stabilized.

A Cook County judge on Thursday ordered Doby held on $7,000 bail and barred Doby from having any contact with the victim.

Doby doesn’t have a listed phone number to pursue comment.

The California “house of horrors” parents who abused and tortured some of their 13 children face being sentenced to 25 years to life in prison Friday, a day after the 911 call from one of their daughters which helped lead to their downfall was released.

David and Louise Turpin pleaded guilty in Riverside County Superior Court in February to torture and other abuse and neglect so severe it stunted their children’s growth, led to muscle wasting and left two girls unable to bear children.

Their 17-year-old daughter was able to escape the filthy home in a middle-class section of Perris, about 60 miles southeast of Los Angeles. She jumped out of the window and used a cell phone to alert authorities. ABC News obtained the 911 call the girl made to authorities, pleading for help.

“I’ve never been out,” the teen told the dispatcher. “I don’t go out much.”

CALIFORNIA ‘HOUSE OF HORRORS’ PARENTS PLEAD GUILTY

“My parents are abusive,” she said in the call. “My two little sisters right now are chained up right now … they’re chained up to their bed.”

“Sometimes we live in filth and sometimes I wake up and I can’t breathe because how dirty the house is,” she told the dispatcher.

When asked by the dispatcher when the last time she took a bath, she replied, “I don’t know. Almost a year ago.”

Authorities arrived at the home in January 2018 and were shocked by what they saw. A 22-year-old son was chained to a bed and two girls had just been set free from their shackles. The house was covered in filth and the stench of human waste was overwhelming, police said.

Authorities said the children barely left the home except for the occasional family vacation, slept most of the day and were mostly kept in their rooms.

The children said they were beaten, caged and shackled to beds if they didn’t obey their parents. The children ranged in age from 2 to 29.

David Turpin, 57, had been an engineer for Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman. Louise Turpin, 50, was listed as a housewife in a 2011 bankruptcy filing.

Kansas City Chiefs star Tyreek Hill reportedly had his young toddler removed from his and the boy’s mother’s custody.

Word of the boy’s removal from his parents’ care comes a month after the wide receiver was being investigated over alleged incidents of battery against the child, the Kansas City Star reported Friday.

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS’ TYREEK HILL REPORTEDLY INVESTIGATED OVER TWO INCIDENTS INVOLVING TODDLER SON

Hill and his fiancée Crystal Espinal were seen at a Johnson County, Kan., courthouse Wednesday as they participated in a “child in need of care case,” according to the newspaper.

Earlier this week, Hill showed up at offseason voluntary workouts for the Chiefs. Hill didn’t address the media. Chiefs coach Andy Reid addressed his wide receiver’s situation.

“I know you’re going to potentially ask about Tyreek,” Reid told reporters, according to Kansas City Star. “Tyreek is here. I don’t have anything further to tell you from the statement we put out. There’s been no new news on it. I’m going to leave it at that. I have had a chance to say hello to him. I have done that. And again, see him in the meeting.”

He later added: “I’m not here to judge. I’m here to coach.”

The first alleged incident occurred March 5 when Overland Park police were called due to a report of child abuse or neglect at home, KCTV News 5 reported. Police were then called to the same Kansas home to investigate a battery against a juvenile. Hill’s name wasn’t listed on the second police report, according to the station.

A source familiar with the second incident told the Kansas City Star the situation resulted in the son breaking his arm. Espinal was reportedly listed as “others involved” on the police report. The Kansas Department of Children and Families told the paper it was investigating as well.

According to KCTV News 5, Hill went to the Johnson County Courthouse for an emergency hearing April 5, which resulted in his son temporarily being placed in another home.

Hill has not been charged with a crime. The NFL team said in a March statement it was “aware of the investigation involving Tyreek Hill. We are in the process of gathering information and have been in contact with the league and local authorities.”
