Fatal stabbings of mom, 3 kids leave relatives, friends devastated; suspect in custody, authorities say

Friends and family of a 29-year-old Georgia mother and her three children, who were found fatally stabbed in an apartment Wednesday, say the tragedy has come as a total shock to the community, according to reports.

Jerrica Spellman and the children were found dead Wednesday night in a South Columbus apartment complex, WTVM-TV reported. The youngest child was an infant, and the oldest was 3, the report said.

A suspect, identified as 27-year-old Travane Brandon Jackson, has been taken into custody on four counts of family violence, according to the station.

Those who knew the couple said Jackson seemed to love his kids and worked several jobs to support them.

“All I know is this, that boy grind for those kids and that’s all he used to promote,” a friend of Jackson’s told WTVM-TV. “Two, three jobs, plus that, definitely a shock. I don’t what’s going, pray for both sides of the family.”

A friend of Spellman’s told the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer that she was “full of love and life.”

“I still really am feeling like it’s not happening,” she said. “She didn’t deserve that at all. She didn’t do wrong to people; she always wanted to see people in good moods. If you were in a bad mood she’d try to do something funny or say something to make you laugh.”

Spellman’s family, meanwhile, have expressed shock, noting that she was a wonderful mother who would do anything for her children. They said there were no distressing signs between the couple.

“Like I said, it’s a senseless act, you know both families lost out,” said a cousin. “Everybody lost someone and something.”

Volunteers rush to transport shelter animals threatened by Barry out of storm’s path

A multistate rescue effort helped secure and transport more than 120 cats and dogs to safety on Friday, removing them from shelters in Louisiana in anticipation of Tropical Storm Barry.

The D.C. based Humane Rescue Alliance teamed up with St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center in New Jersey to rescue the animals from two Louisiana shelters, St. Landry Animal Care and Control and St. Martin Animal Shelter, which are located in the path of the storm.

BARRY MAKES LANDFALL IN LOUISIANA AFTER WEAKENING BACK TO TROPICAL STORM

Both Lousiana shelters house their animals outdoors, creating an even greater potential for danger and the rescue efforts were intended to free up local shelters to deal with anticipated structural damage and an influx of displaced animals in the state as a result of the storm that is expected to bring 70 mph winds and dangerous storm surge throughout the weekend.

The animals were flown to Manassas Regional Airport in Virginia where they were then distributed to local animal shelters.

“We are proud to assist our fellow shelters in Louisiana and provide a safe haven for the animals as the region prepares for potentially devastating storms,” Lisa LaFontaine, president and CEO of HRA said in a statement. “As we head into hurricane season, the Humane Rescue Alliance and St. Hubert’s stand ready to take in homeless animals in the path of natural disasters with open arms and find loving homes for them in the region.”

The animals were flown to Manassas Regional Airport in Virginia where they were then distributed to local animal shelters including the Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation, Angels of Assisi, Humane Rescue Alliance, St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center, Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA and Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

The rescue mission was the first since the D.C. rescue group and the New Jersey-based animal center merged on Tuesday with the specific mission of furthering the St. Hubert’s WayStation program, an animal transport program that cares for homeless or displaced animals, particularly during natural disasters, according to the Humane Society.

“By enriching the organizations on both ends of animal transports, we can weave a safety net for animals in every corner of the country,” LaFontaine said in a statement Tuesday.

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.

COURAGEOUS DOG CHASES BEAR FROM NEW JERSEY BACKYARD IN WILD VIDEO

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.

Good Samaritans in Georgia turn in cash picked up on highway after armored truck mishap, police say

Georgia cops were pleasantly surprised when several Good Samaritans turned in thousands of dollars that spilled out onto a highway earlier this week after the side door of an armored truck suddenly opened.

Dunwoody Police said several people have turned in money they picked up along I-285 near Ashford-Dunwoody Road on Monday night, when the door mishap sent an unspecified amount of money flying into the air.

“So, believe it or not, some people have been returning the money that fell from the armored car,” police said in a Facebook post, calling it a “bizarre occurrence.”

According to The Washington Post, Lewis brought back $2,100 while other people brought in a combined $2,300.

Lewis told WXIA that while he thought about what the money could do for his family, he ultimately decided to return it because it wasn’t worth the legal trouble.

Authorities said that anyone caught taking the money would be liable for theft.

Officials were still urging greedy drivers on Wednesday to stop blocking the roadway as “THERE IS NO MORE MONEY!” police said in another post.

The initial report of money flying across the highway came in at around 8 p.m. Monday. Callers informed dispatch that there were at least 15 cars on the highway that stopped to pick up the cash.

Once on the scene, police discovered the armored truck as the source of the money. The crew was only able to gather a few hundred dollars at the time.

Police estimate the total missing cash at around $175,000.

Georgia teenagers staged kidnapping at mall to gain YouTube followers, police say

A teenager screaming for help inside an SUV in the parking lot of a Georgia mall last week was nothing more than a stunt meant to be uploaded to YouTube, according to police.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office said Christopher Kratzer, 19, and Ava Coleman, 17, face charges of reckless conduct and raising a false public alarm after the alleged staged kidnapping at The Collection at Forsyth shopping center, located about 35 miles north of Atlanta.

“If you want to create a social media following, I would strongly dissuade you from this stupidity, good armed citizens might have been justified in using force to stop what they legitimately believed was a kidnapping,” Sheriff Ron Freeman said in a Facebook post. “Committing a criminal act for social media likes will get you arrested in Forsyth County, that’s not the kind of attention most people want to have.”

The sheriff’s office said they received multiple 911 calls around 6 p.m. on July 3 about a woman possibly being kidnapped. The woman was tied up with a covering over her head from inside the SUV.

She was also heard yelling “he is going to kill me,” the Forsyth County News reported.

Officials said eight deputies responded to the call, which was over half the entire contingent of officers in the southern part of the county in an attempt to intercept the SUV.

“Deputies were travelling in emergency modes with lights and siren trying to render help to this alleged victim, such driving is not without risk to the public and deputies,” police said.

The SUV was eventually stopped and officers investigating the incident discovered the pair were filming a kidnapping prank for a YouTube video.

“Yes, that’s right for a social media channel to gain more followers,” police said.

Both were arrested and taken to the Forsyth County Jail. Coleman was released on bond, while Krazter is still being held after allegedly violating the terms of his probation for a prior incident, according to the Forsyth County News.

Video captured more than a dozen people getting out of their vehicles on Tuesday to grab money that was flying all over a Georgia interstate, police said.

Dunwoody police responded to Interstate 285 around 8 p.m. Tuesday after about $175,000 was reported to be “flying all over the road,” said Sgt. Robert Parsons, public information officer.

The 911 callers reported that more than 15 vehicles had stopped on the interstate in Dunwoody, some 17 miles from Atlanta, and people were “frantically taking the money,” according to a post on the Dunwoody Police Department’s Facebook page.

The post said when officers arrived, they spotted an armored truck on the right shoulder of the interstate.

“The armored car crew said the side door came open while they were driving and money spilled out onto 285,” police said.

Parsons told Fox News that the crew was not sure exactly how much money spilled out of the truck, but reported it to be about $175,000.

“The company has yet to confirm the exact amount,” Parsons added.

Police said officers and the armored truck crew gathered a few hundred dollars still on hand when officers arrived, “but plenty was taken by passerby’s sticky fingers.”

“While we certainly understand the temptation, it’s still theft and the money should be returned,” police said in the Facebook post on Tuesday.

“We are thankful there were no crashes or pedestrians struck as a result of this isolated cash storm.”

On Wednesday, Dunwoody police wrote on the department’s Facebook page that some people have been bringing back the scattered bills.

The post included a picture of a man returning cash and said, “So, believe it or not, some people have been returning the money that fell from the armored car on I-285.”

“We understand it was a bizarre occurrence, but do the right thing and return the money,” police wrote in the post.
