Texas high school football player, 16, dies in brother’s arms, family says

A Texas high school football player collapsed last week and died in his twin brother’s arms after the two had been running around a parking lot.

Deshaud Williams, a 16-year-old sophomore at Lewisville High School, located in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, was in good health before his collapse, according to his family.

On Friday, Deshaud and his twin, Dashaud, were running and playing tag when suddenly Deshaud said he couldn’t breathe.

“He was like, ‘Da, I can’t breathe. I was like, ‘You good? Come on, we’re going to get home,” twin Dashaud told KXAS-TV. “He was like, ‘I can’t breathe. I’m about to pass out.’ And I ran to him and he fell to his knees and fell on his back.”

Dashaud called 911, but his twin brother died. His mother, Razel Sheppard, said his death is “a big mystery” considering he was healthy before he died.

“He’s never been sick. He was a healthy all-around kid. Hopefully, [we’ll] get answers,” she said. “His heart couldn’t take no more and he died in his brother’s hands.”

The Lewisville community is mourning Deshaud’s death. On Sunday, friends and family came together to honor him with a balloon release in his memory.

“Today our hearts are broken,” the school’s football team tweeted. “Please keep the Fighting Farmer community in your prayers as we mourn the loss of a student-athlete.”

Darren Johnson, a friend of Deshaud’s, described the teen as motivational, telling the news outlet: “When he was tired, we would pick him up. When we were tired, he would pick us up.”

“There was no better friend you could have,” Johnson said. “He’ll always be in our hearts.”

El Paso church arson attacks prompt FBI to offer $15G for information

The FBI is offering $15,000 in rewards for information leading to the culprits behind a series of arson attacks on three Catholic churches predominantly serving Hispanics and migrants in El Paso, Texas.

The announcement came in a Thursday news release, in which the bureau offered $5,000 for information on each arson attack.

“We are counting on assistance from members of the community to keep our city safe,” the bureau wrote.

The first purported attack came on May 7 at the St. Matthew Catholic Church followed by another one week later at the St. Patrick Cathedral. Then on June 15, firefighters battled heavy smoke at the St. Jude Catholic Church.

The FBI said each church sustained damage from incendiary devices but that no one was injured.

“Every lead will be thoroughly investigated. Regardless of how insignificant you think your information might be, we strongly encourage you to come forward and welcome your information and assistance,” the FBI said.

The FBI’s El Paso field office, the El Paso Fire Marshal’s Office, the El Paso Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) have been carrying out the investigation.

The announcement came six weeks after a gunman opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso, killing 22 people and injuring 24 others.

Police said the alleged shooter told investigators he was targeting Mexicans.

An American driver has been arrested in Texas after border agents found 53 illegal immigrants from Mexico and several other countries south of the U.S. border hidden inside a sweltering tractor-trailer, authorities said Friday.

The unidentified driver was the only visible occupant inside the vehicle when it pulled up to the Interstate Highway 35 (IH-35) checkpoint north of Laredo on Tuesday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said in a statement.

A canine alerted border agents to the odors of concealed humans or narcotics from inside the trailer during a primary inspection of the vehicle, the CPB said. Upon further examination, agents said they discovered 53 migrants from Mexico, Ecuador, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, who were “all illegally present in the United States.”

The temperature inside the trailer was recorded at 105 degrees at the time of the discovery, though no one required medical attention, according to the CPB.

Agents arrested the U.S. citizen and all 53 illegal immigrants, who they said would be “processed accordingly.” Border Patrol seized the tractor-trailer.

It was unclear whether the driver is facing charges, but investigators called the incident a “human smuggling attempt.”

Homeland Security Investigations is handling the case.

Texas high school student arrested after hitting principal, threatening school shooting

A Texas high school student was arrested on Tuesday after assaulting his principal, a police officer and threatening to use a gun in a school shooting, reports say.

Jaelon Gipson, 17, allegedly threatened to pull a gun from his backpack and start shooting at Terrell High School, the Terrell ISD police chief, Gary Monk, told inForney.com.

Overhearing his threats, students reported his gun comments to the school and police were called to the scene around 12:41 p.m. on Tuesday, according to the outlet.

“He was gesturing, reaching in and acting like he was pulling out a gun,” Monk added.

While police didn’t find a firearm on Gipson, he was found to have under 2 ounces of marijuana in his possession.

Texas Education Code states if “the person intentionally exhibits, uses, or threatens to exhibit or use a firearm,” it’s classified as a third-degree felony.

When Gipson was brought into the school’s offices, administrators told police he assaulted the school’s principal and kicked the car of a police officer, causing roughly $1,200 worth of damage, according to fox4news.com.

Gipson was charged with assaulting a public servant, criminal mischief, exhibiting a firearm on campus or school bus, resisting arrest and possession of under 2 ounces of marijuana.

He was booked into the Kaufman County Jail on Thursday. He is currently being held on bonds totaling $335,000.

Texas 3-year-old dies after being left in hot car, police say

Westlake Legal Group police-lights- Texas 3-year-old dies after being left in hot car, police say Nicole Darrah fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox-news/us/crime fox news fnc/us fnc d84fb65c-7f93-586f-a2e6-6254b9f26bbf article

A 3-year-old boy died in Texas on Saturday after his parents left him inside a hot car by accident, police said.

The boy and his family had just returned to their San Antonio home from their 6-year-old son’s tee ball game in the early afternoon when his parents and older brothers went inside.

WHY DO PARENTS FORGET THEIR CHILDREN IN HOT, PARKED CARS?

His parents realized the child was left inside the car, and went back outside to get him — “where they found him unresponsive,” the San Antonio Express-News reported.

“This really was just a case of parents who just got distracted,” San Antonio Police Lt. Jesse Salame said. “They discovered him unresponsive in the vehicle, pulled him out and began life-saving measures, but were unsuccessful.”

Salame described the situation as a “horrific tragedy,” and said both parents thought the other had taken the child out of the car.

Temperatures in San Antonio on Saturday reached a high of 93 degrees, according to the news outlet.

FLORIDA MAN WITH DOWN SYNDROME DIED IN HOT CAR AS CARETAKER SLEPT OFF KRATOM OVERDOSE, SHERIFF SAYS

According to Kids and Cars, a nonprofit organization that tracks such deaths, the boy in San Antonio was the 43rd child to die in a hot car this year — the sixth in Texas.

Dr. Rosina McAlpine, a parent expert and CEO of Win Win Parenting, previously told Fox News that oftentimes when parents forget their children inside hot vehicles, it’s because they’re often in a rush to get to work, an appointment, or another obligation and “forget they haven’t dropped the child off at day care or school and rush off to the meeting or work distracted, leaving their child behind.”

“Later they remember in shock but often it is too late,” she said, noting some parents alternate dropping their child off at day care, and might “forget it was their turn.” McAlpine said some caregivers “knowingly” leave children inside cars, as the kids “are sleeping and don’t want to disturb them in the hope they’ll get back before they awake.”

Those who leave their children in the car also may not understand the danger they’re in, or consider how fast cars can heat up. The interior temperature of a car can quickly skyrocket, with 80 percent of the total temperature rise happening in the first 30 minutes a child is inside a car — where the temperature inside can exceed those outside by up to 50 degrees.

Texas man wanted for divorcing his wife without her knowledge

A Texas man is wanted by authorities for divorcing his wife — apparently without her knowledge.

Paul Nixon, 51, allegedly broke it off from his wife using forged documents behind her back, authorities claimed. Nixon’s wife told investigators on May 14 the man “filed for divorce and completed the entire proceedings without her knowledge or consent and that the court had already completed all hearings and filed the final divorce decree.”

Nixon, of Harris County, submitted “several forged documents and false information” to a district court, “including a forged waiver of service” and a forged signature from a notary public in an effort to divorce his wife,” according to a press release posted on the constable’s Facebook page.

Nixon’s wife “was very surprised,” Constable Mark Herman told the New York Post. “In this particular case, the gentleman decided to go through a divorce but the only problem is, he left his wife out of the process. And that’s a violation of the law here in Texas.”

The constable said Nixon’s wife “started finding things showing that he was spending money on jewelry, so she confronted him and he told her that they were actually divorced.”

Nixon and his wife were only married for a “couple of years” before he moved forward with their divorce, without her.

The divorce decree has been vacated since it was filed fraudulently, officials said. Herman said Nixon and his wife “are still legally married.”

Nixon is wanted for aggravated perjury and has a no-bond warrant out for his arrest.

Authorities confirm fifth death linked to Tropical Storm Imelda as Texas floodwaters recede

A fifth death has been linked to the devastating east Texas floods produced by Tropical Storm Imelda, one of the wettest tropical cyclones in U.S. history.

Authorities say a 52-year-old Florida man was found dead Thursday in his stranded pickup truck along Interstate 10 near Beaumont, which is near Texas’ border with Louisiana. Jefferson County spokeswoman Allison Getz said that although floodwaters seeped into Mark Dukaj’s truck, investigators don’t believe he drowned, though they do believe his death is storm-related. An autopsy will determine the cause.

Hundreds of homes and other buildings in the Houston area have been damaged by the storm, bringing back unpleasant memories of Hurricane Harvey — which dumped more than 50 inches of rain on the area two years ago. Imelda, the first named storm to impact the area since then, has deposited more than 40 inches of rain in some spots as it churned across a region extending east from Houston to the Louisiana border.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has already declared a state of disaster for the counties impacted by Imelda  and officials in Harris County, which is home to Houston, were trying to determine if millions of dollars in uninsured losses were enough to trigger a federal disaster declaration.

The heaviest rainfall had ended by Thursday night in Southeast Texas, but forecasters warned that parts of northeast Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Louisiana could see flash flooding as Imelda’s remnants shifted to the north.

Officials say two of the deaths from Imelda happened in the Houston area: an unidentified man in his 40s or 50s who drowned Thursday while driving a van through 8-foot-deep floodwaters and a man whose body was found in a ditch Friday and is believed to have drowned.

In Jefferson County, officials say a 19-year-old man drowned and was electrocuted Thursday while trying to move his horse to safety. Another man, 47-year-old Beaumont resident Malcolm Foster, was found dead inside his vehicle.

“The issue is that you can’t get 40 inches of rain in a 72-hour period and be fully prepared for that,” Jefferson County spokeswoman Allison Getz told The Associated Press. “At this point, we haven’t been able to fully assess what’s happened.”

A section of Interstate 10 just east of Houston remained closed Saturday after at least two runaway barges struck two bridges carrying eastbound and westbound traffic. Nearly 123,000 vehicles normally cross the bridges each day, according to the Texas Department of Transportation. The Coast Guard has said that witnesses reported early Friday that nine barges had broken away from their moorings at a shipyard.

Two barges remain lodged against the bridges, said Emily Black, a spokeswoman for the state Transportation Department.

“The current is really very strong right now so it’s kind of pushed them up against the columns right now,” she said.

Inspectors hope that the water will recede and the current will slow down enough for the barges to be removed this weekend so that a better assessment of the damage to the bridges can be made.

FBI looking for ‘Mummy Marauder’ in Friday the 13th bank robbery

The FBI is looking for a suspected Houston-area bank robber dubbed the “Mummy Marauder” because of the white gauze covering his face during a Friday the 13th caper.

The suspect entered a First Convenience Bank branch at around 11:30 a.m. wearing a baseball cap, dreadlock wig, sunglasses and white gauze covering his face and right hand.

FBI looking for ‘Mummy Marauder’ in Friday the 13th bank robbery

The FBI is looking for a suspected Houston-area bank robber dubbed the “Mummy Marauder” because of the white gauze covering his face during a Friday the 13th caper.

The suspect entered a First Convenience Bank branch at around 11:30 a.m. wearing a baseball cap, dreadlock wig, sunglasses and white gauze covering his face and right hand.

He approached the teller and verbally threatened her while demanding cash, the FBI said in a news release.

He fled with an undisclosed amount of cash and got into a black Mitsubishi Montero SUV being driven by someone else.

“It’s a little early for Halloween,” FBI spokesman Connor Hagen told Fox News. “This guy did go into a regular business … he terrorized the tellers, and these were people going about their everyday business.”
