    Houston Chronicle ^ | 7 October 2019 | Danny Hermosillo and Julian Gill
    When you think of serial killers, names like Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy and even Houston's own "Candyman," Dean Corll, probably pop to mind. But the FBI says Samuel Little is the worst of the worst, having confessed to 93 murders, and even sketching many of his victims from memory to help police identify them.

    Mickaël Harpon had contact with members of the Salafist movement. He had exchanged text messages of a religious nature with his wife before the attack, the prosecutor added. He also defended the 2015 terrorist attack on the magazine Charlie Hebdo and other atrocities, Mr Ricard said. Anti-terror investigators took over the inquiry on Friday. It was initially regarded as a criminal matter. The 45-year-old IT expert, who worked at the police headquarters, was shot dead on Thursday by a junior police officer after he attacked colleagues in several offices at the central police building.

    A “documented gang member,” who police said "should have been in prison," was responsible for a two-hour stabbing and robbery rampage in Southern California that killed four people and injured two, authorities said Thursday. Garden Grove Police Chief Tom DaRé told reporters that Zachary Castaneda "could have injured or killed many other people" had he not been apprehended as he walked out of a convenience store in the neighboring city of Santa Ana, dropping a knife and a gun he had taken from a security guard he had just killed. Police told reporters the violence appeared to be “random," with...

    by Brian Hayes CNN has refused to air a report about an illegal alien who was charged in Dallas, Texas for murdering 19 elderly women -- and who may be a suspect in dozens more. The story broke last month when Kenyan national Billy Chemirmir, 46, was charged with the deaths of six women in Dallas County and then was charged on Thursday with the deaths of five women in Collin County. Chemirmir was already in prison from charges he faces from 2018 involving another alleged murder of an elderly woman. The story garnered national attention and was widely reported on...

(Snip) Craddock reportedly knew he was facing disciplinary action for the fight when he went into the municipal building with two .45-caliber handguns, at least one of which was equipped with a sound suppressor — and both of which were purchased legally.

    Every year, Earth passes through the tail of the comet Encke - twice. This isn’t unusual. We regularly cross cometary trails of ice and dust. But this one may be different. It could have been the source of the dramatic 1908 Tunguska airburst which flattened hundreds of square kilometres of Russian forest. The 45m wide comet fragment struck on June 30, at the height of the Beta Taurid shower. Was it, in fact, a part of that shower? Astronomer and science advocate Dr Phil Plait says it is possible. Calculations of its trajectory indicate the Tunguska object came from the...

    The gunman who shot and killed Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona Thursday night has been identified as Kevin Douglas Limbaugh, a 48-year-old man who was ordered last fall to surrender a semiautomatic rifle after he was convicted in a battery case. Yolo County Superior Court records show Limbaugh was charged in September with battery with serious bodily injury, a incident that a source said stemmed from him punching a co-worker at Cache Creek Casino in the face after a dispute. The case was resolved as a misdemeanor conviction, and California Department of Justice records show he agreed to surrender a...

    A VICTORIAN man who deliberately ran down emus in his ute on a country road near the South Australian border has said his actions were the “biggest stuff up” of his life. Jacob MacDonald, 20, was charged with numerous animal cruelty and traffic offences on Friday after the video he filmed of himself running over the emus went viral on social media. MacDonald, pictured, is from Cowangie, a small town only kilometres from the South Australian border. Yesterday, speaking publicly for the first time since the incident, he said that while running down the emus as they crossed Pallarang Rd...

    The thought of Karl Marx, a German political agitator whose theory of “scientific socialism” wreaked havoc on the world for most of the 20th century, would seem to have been consigned to the ash heap of history following the fall of the Eastern Bloc communist regimes from 1989 to 1991. After decades of mass murder claiming tens of millions of victims, as well as the totalitarian oppression of hundreds of millions more, the reputation of Marxism had been destroyed almost completely, seemingly assuring its final demise.However, a resurgence of interest in Marx’s thought has been ongoing since 2008, when the...
  • Autonomous killer drones begin patrolling the Great Barrier Reef

    The starfish feeds on native coral that call the reef home -- and they are key to the reef's ecology. No coral, no reef and so the starfish must be destroyed. In 2015, researchers at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) unveiled the technology known as the Crown-Of-Thorns Starfish robot (COTSbot) to deal with the threat. When deployed, the autonomous robot was able to seek out crown-of-thorns starfish (with 99 percent accuracy) and inject them with a chemical cocktail that causes them to break out in nasty blisters and eventually die. Now, that same research team has unveiled RangerBot, the...

One of the drivers was killed in the fight after suffering what appears to be blunt force trauma. Then the second driver, walking north on the freeway, was struck and killed by a passing motorist.

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The genealogy website used to find the man accused of being California's Golden State Killer had no idea its database was tapped in pursuit of a suspect who eluded law enforcement for four decades, the site co-founder said Friday. Authorities never approached Florida-based GEDmatch about the case, and Curtis Rogers said law enforcement's use of the site raised privacy concerns that were echoed by civil liberties groups. The free genealogy website, which pools DNA profiles that people upload and share publicly to find relatives, said it has always informed users its database can be used for...
