Florida woman’s brutal cold-case murder heats up, cops make arrest

A Tennessee man was arrested Wednesday in connection with the brutal 1986 murder of 38-year-old Eveline Aguilar, officials said.

Danny Lynn Emitt, 50, is accused of murdering Aguilar on July 14, 1986. Her body was found in a Winter Park, Florida, apartment with multiple stab wounds on her upper body and hands, police said. Officials also concluded she may have been sexually assaulted.

A warrant was issued for Emitt’s arrest after samples from the 33-year-old murder case were entered into a national database and Emitt was revealed to be a match, according to Knox News. Emitt was in the database because he had submitted DNA for an unrelated case in 2005, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

“There is no perfect ending, but this is as good as we can get – holding the person that’s responsible accountable for their actions,” Seminole County Sheriff Dennis Lemma said at a news conference Thursday, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Lemma said at least 50 people had been interviewed in the case before Emitt’s arrest.

In the Aguilar case, Emitt was charged with first-degree premeditated murder and burglary. Knox News reported Emitt was booked into the Roger D. Wilson Detention Facility in Tennessee, where he awaits extradition to Florida.

Tennessee murder victim found holding piece of paper with suspect’s license plate on it: report

Westlake Legal Group Bryant-Ward Tennessee murder victim found holding piece of paper with suspect’s license plate on it: report Paulina Dedaj fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/tennessee fox-news/us/crime/homicide fox news fnc/us fnc article 707e7024-d910-5b1c-b0f2-1945db9af093

The Tennessee man who was shot and killed outside his Cordova home last week was reportedly found holding a piece of paper that authorities think might be the key to bringing his killer to justice.

Bryant Ward, 24, was arrested in the killing of 61-year-old Bryan Hervey after police discovered Hervey holding a piece of paper with Ward’s license plate number written on it.

Court documents obtained by FOX13 stated Hervey was seen running to his front door on May 15 shortly before he was killed. Home surveillance video taken from a doorbell camera appeared to show Hervey screaming for help as gunshots rang out in the background.

Police reportedly found 25 shell casings in and around the crime scene.

When police located Hervey’s body at around 2:30 a.m. they discovered the paper in his hand with what appeared to be a license plate number, WMC reported. Court documents stated Hervey was a member of his neighborhood watch program.

Ward was arrested after authorities matched the information on the paper to a vehicle outside his home with the same license plate number. Ward, who reportedly lived just down the street from Hervey, was arrested Friday and charged with first-degree murder, FOX13 reported.

Tennessee executes man convicted of killing wife in 1984

Westlake Legal Group 7bf0355b-ContentBroker_contentid-533a8444a8f54546a22da5fa960f96c2 Tennessee executes man convicted of killing wife in 1984 Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/tennessee fox-news/us fox-news/entertainment/genres/crime fox news fnc/us fnc article 2f624843-4ba8-5b83-b933-503a49308b4f

A Tennessee inmate who made headlines by requesting that his last meal be donated to the homeless was executed Thursday for the 1984 murder of his wife.

Don Johnson, 68, was pronounced dead at 7:37 p.m. following a lethal injection at a maximum-security prison in Nashville. In his last moments, Johnson uttered a long prayer, asking for forgiveness. He asked the warden if he could sing, and he sang two hymns. The last words observers could hear were “no more dying here.”

Johnson was convicted of suffocating his wife, Connie Johnson, at a camping center he managed in Memphis. He initially blamed the murder on a work-release inmate who confessed to helping dispose of the body and who was granted immunity for testifying against Johnson.

On Tuesday, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee turned down last-ditch clemency requests from religious leaders, including the president of the worldwide Seventh-day Adventist Church, of which Johnson was a member. Johnson’s supporters said he had experienced a religious conversion and ministered to other prisoners.

DEATH-ROW INMATE SKIPS LAST MEAL, ASKS FOR FOOD TO BE GIVEN TO HOMELESS INSTEAD

The state’s Department of Correction said that Johnson turned down the last meal selection, asking that his special last meal before his execution be donated to the homeless. He instead chose from the same menu given to other prisoners of the Riverbend Maximum Security Institution.

The Nashville church where Johnson was an ordained elder was collecting grocery gift cards for a meal next week for the homeless.

Johnson’s wish was inspired by another death row inmate whose request to have a pizza delivered to a homeless person prompted people all over the country to deliver pizzas to homeless shelters.

Johnson is the fourth person executed in Tennessee since August. The two Tennessee inmates executed before Johnson chose the electric chair option, saying they believed it would be a quicker and less painful death than lethal injection. The state’s present default method is a three-drug combination that includes the sedative midazolam, which inmates have claimed causes a prolonged and excruciating death. Three more executions are scheduled for later this year in Tennessee.

Mother of Georgia teen killed by carnival worker found ‘creepy’ texts between the two

The mother of a Georgia teenager who was killed in March by a traveling carnival worker claims she saw “creepy” messages between the two about marriage and warned her daughter to stay away.

Cynthia Butterworth claims that she met accused killer James Michael Wright, 23, last year at the North Georgia State Fair in Cobb County when he offered her daughter, 17-year-old Joslyn Alsup, free horse rides, she told WXIA in an interview.

Butterworth said after that encounter, she discovered “creepy” messages on social media between the pair in which Wright told the teen, “I will marry you.”

“I’m like, ‘that’s just creepy.’ I told her not to have anything to do with him anymore, and as far as I know, she didn’t.”

The girl was reported missing on March 8 after Butterworth said she hadn’t heard from her daughter in over two weeks.

“She would run away ever since October of last year. At least every weekend she would go,” she told the local station.

She said that the so-called “weekend runaway” would often leave home but always called to check.

Butterworth said she only learned of her daughter’s death on Monday from a press conference by Washington County Virginia Sheriff’s office.

“I replayed God only knows how many times, and I just couldn’t believe they were talking about her.”

Wright was arrested on Thursday after police say he went on a killing spree, murdering three women in just 18 days. He was said to have met all the victims while he worked as a sub-contracted employee for the James H. Drew Carnival.

Wright is facing three counts of capital murder for the deaths of Joslyn, 25-year-old Athina Hopson and 22-year-old Elizabeth Marie Vanmeter. Both women were from Tennessee.

Warrants filed in the Washington County, Virginia General District Court stated that Wright allegedly told police that he had sex with Joslyn and accidentally shot her on March 9 while trying to shoot an animal in the woods, WCYB reported.

He was said to have then covered the body with logs in a wooded area near his home.

Butterworth called for the death penalty, adding that “even torture is too good for him.”

A college baseball game was postponed in Tennessee on Tuesday evening after an 8-year-old boy allegedly shot his mother in what police are saying was an accident, according to reports.

The unidentified woman was transported to a hospital in critical condition but her condition was later upgraded to stable, FOX 13 of Memphis reported.

The owner of the gun has been detained and police are conducting an investigation to determine if they will press charges, authorities said.

The shooting happened at USA Stadium in Millington, where the University of Memphis Tigers were playing the University of Tennessee at Martin.

Police in northern Tennessee say they have solved the mystery of a septuagenarian in a clown costume who was reportedly seen trying to entice children with candy Thursday.

“He is an older man who dresses up once a year on his birthday as a clown and hands out candy. Today is his birthday,” the Clarksville Police Department wrote on Facebook after concerned residents reported the potentially suspicious behavior.

“There was also nothing that indicated police that his actions were intentionally harmful or meant to scare anyone,” police reported.

Nevertheless, some people on social media didn’t think the man’s kind gesture toward children was a good idea.

“This is 2019,” Facebook user “Krystal Ann” wrote in response to the police. “you can’t dress as a clown and pass candy out to random children…. some parents are “act first ask questions later” kind of parents AKA this is how you get beat up…. want to do something sweet for children on your birthday???

Tennessee authorities filed a slew of charges against a man on Friday in connection to the slayings of seven people found in two locations last month.

Suspect Michael Cummins was charged with six counts of first-degree murder, one count of criminal homicide, one count of attempt to commit first-degree murder and one count of theft, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) announced in a news release.

The agency began probing the fatalities in Sumner County on April 27, as well as an officer-involved shooting that linked to Cummins, officials said.

Six bodies were found at a residence on Charles Brown Road, as was another individual “who was alive but injured,” TBI said. Another body was discovered at a second scene on Luby Brown Road.

Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs busted out the iconic mask and signature move of his WWE character, Kane, during an event this week.

Jacobs, a Republican who was elected as mayor of the Tennessee county in 2018, delivered the opening remarks at the National Association of Sports Commissions Symposium at the Knoxville Convention Center Tuesday, according to the Knoxville News Sentinel.

As Jacobs welcomed the crowd and spoke about Knox County, he was interrupted by a man dressed as an event staffer.

“You know who I am, right?” Jacobs said as the man tried to get him off the stage. “Yeah, I’m mayor, but that’s not all.”

Suddenly, the lights turned red and Kane’s WWE theme music began playing.

Jacobs donned his Kane mask and proceeded to chokeslam the man through a nearby table.

“So, as I was saying,” Jacobs said to conclude the humorous skit. “Welcome to Knox County. I hope you have a wonderful time, and I expect to see you back here very soon…or else.”

Jacobs made his last appearance in WWE in November 2018, losing a tag team match alongside his storyline brother, The Undertaker, to D-Generation X. In a video published by WWE in April, Jacobs said he would not rule out a return to the squared circle.

Dolly Parton was honored by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) over the weekend for her donations to hundreds of families who lost their homes during the 2016 wildfires in Gatlinburg, Tenn.

The 73-year-old country music legend and the Dollywood Foundation were presented with a 2018 Director’s Community Leadership Award on Friday, after she was nominated by the Knoxville Division of the FBI.

Through the “My People Fund,” Parton and the Dollywood Foundation donated a total of $9 million to the victims of the Gatlinburg wildfires, according to WKRN.

Though the singer wasn’t able to be there in person, she did send in a video thanking the FBI and her fellow award recipients.

“Hey everybody, it’s Dolly, and I am so sorry I couldn’t be with you today to personally accept the award from Director Wray,” she said in the video.

“But it is an honor for me to be recognized by the FBI, because there’s no higher calling than your mission to protect and serve us. And to my fellow recipients, thank you for all you do for our communities. Your work inspires all of us,” she added.

“So may y’all continue to have the faith, the strength, and the vision to make your dreams come true. So many thanks again, and remember that I will always love you! And thank you again,” she concluded her thanks, partially singing.

In a statement, the FBI said it was honoring Parton because of her decision to “help her hometown neighbors who had lost everything.”

“Parton and the Dollywood Foundation provided $10,000 to each of 900 families. The donations brought renewed hope to a community devastated by the worst natural disaster in Tennessee history,” the statement said.

Wildfires ravaged Gatlinburg in 2016, damaging close to 1,000 homes. 13 people were killed.
