    FULL TITLE: Birth parents of girl, 14, raped, strangled and dismembered 'by her polyamorous adoptive mother and woman's boyfriend are inconsolable as they arrive at memorial for victim' The biological mother of 14-year-old Grace Packer had to be propped up by her family as she sobbed uncontrollably Monday on her way to a memorial service for her murdered daughter. Police in Pennsylvania believe Packer's adoptive mother, Sarah Packer, and the woman's boyfriend, Jacob Sullivan, tortured, raped, to death and then dismembered the teenager as part of a sick sexual fantasy that was carried out last July. Grace's remains were discovered...

He had a number of shots at the WWE championship -- both as a villain and hero -- but never won. The Fijian wrestler, also known as Superfly Snuka, would often punish his opponents with his signature move -- the Superfly Splash ... which was an epic body...

    Later this year, producers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinny (FrackNation) and director Nick Searcy (Justified) will bring the story of notorious Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell to the big screen. Gosnell — who has been called America’s “most prolific serial killer” — operated what the 300-page grand jury report later called a “baby charnel house,” in which he regularly killed babies born alive at his clinic, which itself was staffed with inexperienced nurses and littered with blood-stained furniture and the remains of fetuses stored in basement freezers. Gosnell was later convicted of three counts of first-degree murder and hundreds of lesser...

    Chicago is a bloody mess. Last year, Chicago had 762 homicides — more than New York and Los Angeles combined. This represents an astounding 57 percent increase from the 2015 murder rate. On Sunday night, CBS’s 60 Minutes rightfully expressed concern about the fall in stops and arrests by police over the last year. Criminals have seemingly become emboldened as a result of the decrease in arrests. The 60 Minutes piece quotes Garry McCarthy — Chicago’s Police Superintendent up until a year ago — as saying that “officers are under attack, that is how they feel.” This isn’t a new...

True, Chicago has a history of gangland murders going back to the days of Al Capone, but 2016 set a new and lamentable record.

This in a city with strict gun laws. In 2015, there were 480 murders in Chicago. Most of the violence is gang-related. Fatherless kids seeking...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has decided to commute the sentence of a domestic terrorist, Judith Alice Clark, who willingly participated in a bloody robbery that led to the deaths of a security guard and two police officers. Clark, who pleaded not guilty, but was convicted of felony murder, had been sentenced to such a long prison term that she had no real hope for parole during her lifetime – until now. Cuomo’s decision to commute Clark’s sentence will not immediately result in her release, but the steep reduction in her sentence will make her eligible for parole early this year....

    An Ithaca man accused of killing a UPS driver said in court Monday afternoon that not only did he believe he shot and killed Donald Trump, but that no evidence could be presented to him to suggest otherwise. Justin R. Barkley, 38, said during his arraignment and subsequent attempt to plead guilty, "I shot and killed Donald Trump purposely, intentionally and very proudly." Now obviously Barkley is out of his mind. But the murder of an innocent man is another example of how the media's climate of hate can backfire. Did the media's paranoid fantasies about Trump feed into Barkley's...

    For more than a century, boys were sent to the Florida School for Boys reformatory in the north Florida town of Marianna. Many were beaten brutally and bear the physical and psychological scars to this day. Many boys, though, never came home. They died, some under mysterious circumstances. They were buried in unmarked graves and they were forgotten. Several years ago, a young anthropology professor from the University of South Florida decided she would try to answer the many questions about what happened to these boys and, if she could, return their remains to their families.

Roof was charged with 33 counts in his federal indictment. He was found guilty on every single one. Family members of the nine parishioners gunned down last year nodded silently as each charge was read aloud. Some held hands, their eyes shut tightly, as each guilty verdict was announced in the courtroom just a mile from the church. With Roof’s guilt...

    A judge has sentenced suburban Atlanta father Justin Ross Harris to life in prison without parole for the murder of his 22-month-old son, Cooper, who died in 2014 after Harris left him in a hot car for seven hours while he went to work. Harris also received another 32 years, to be served consecutively, for convictions on four other counts. Harris, 36, who appeared in an orange jumpsuit with his wrists shackled at his waist, cast his head slightly downward as the sentence was handed down. He briefly closed his eyes but offered little other reaction. In addition to the...

    Germans have been urged not to scapegoat migrants, after an Afghan youth was arrested over the rape and murder of a German student. A 17-year-old Afghan boy is under suspicion because a DNA test appears to link him to the spot in Freiburg where the woman was attacked in October. Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel warned Germans not to exploit the crime "for incitement and conspiracy propaganda". Last year's massive influx of migrants fuelled tensions over immigration. The 19-year-old medical student disappeared in mid-October on her way home from a party in Freiburg, south-western Germany. Her body was found in the...

    Tulsa hit a new high for homicides in a year early Friday with a pair of deaths, including a woman who died after being stabbed during an altercation with a friend who was helping her move. Tahmachqua Floyd, 24, was the city’s 72nd homicide victim of 2016. The previous record of 71 was set in 2009, according to Tulsa World and Tulsa Police Department records. The new record didn’t stand for long. Just minutes after Floyd’s death, Leon Crockett, 37, died of gunshot wounds he received Nov. 19 in a north Tulsa apartment, police reported.

    Obama and Raul Castro. Disgusting We first ran this piece about 8 months ago, when Obama took his “historic” trip to Cuba. Needless to say, my family’s pretty happy to hear that Fidel Castro, the mass-murdering tyrant who stole so much from them, is dead. Herman suggested I re-post the piece today. My wife is Cuban. If we’re getting technical, she’s Cuban-Italian, but the point is that her father was a Cuban gentleman who - until the Castro brothers took over - owned a hospital in Havana.

    The radiation expert who discovered the poison that killed Alexander Litvinenko "committed suicide" by stabbing himself repeatedly with two knives months after a trip to Russia, a coroner ruled. Matthew Puncher, 46, bled to death at his home after receiving multiple stab wounds across his body from two kitchen knives, an inquest heard. A pathologist said he could not completely exclude the possibility that someone else had been involved in the death of the father, but came to the conclusion that the injuries were self-inflicted.

    The real evil here is the Progressive Left and their tyranny of low expectations Sunday night a police office was ambushed and shot near my home in St. Louis. He was one of four officers nationwide shot within a couple of hours by thugs egged on by Black Lives Matter and blessed by our Community Organizer in Chief Barack Hussein Obama. (The others were in a suburb of Kansas City, in Texas, and in Florida.) The officer survived and is in good shape. He is expected to make a full recovery. The shooter, a man linked to other murders, has...
