The Iowa man charged in the diaper rash death of his 4-month-old baby pointed his finger at his wife, saying that she was the only one responsible for changing the baby’s diaper. The baby’s father, Zachary Koehn, is being defended by a lawyer who says that baby Sterling Koehn’s death is a “tragedy but not a crime.”
KMOV is reporting that the baby was found unresponsive in his baby swing in a soiled diaper full of maggots that hadn’t been changed in over nine days. The baby’s mother, Cheyanne Harris, has also been charged in her son’s death, but is being tried separately for the same crime. According to the Cedar Rapids coroner, Sterling Koehn died of malnutrition, dehydration, and the infection.
The mayor of a small city in Utah has been killed on Saturday in the Afghan capital of Kabul in what the U.S.-backed coalition called an apparent insider attack.
The attacker was reportedly a member of the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces. According to the NATO-led Resolute Support coalition, as soon as he launched the attack, the assailant was immediately killed by other Afghan forces.
According to CNN, Mayor Brent Taylor was identified as a U.S. servicemember and was elected to the city council of North Ogden in 2009 before becoming a mayor in 2013. The North Odgen City Councilman Phillip D. Swanson took to Facebook on Saturday to announce Taylor’s demise.
“Major Brent Taylor was killed in Afghanistan this morning. A news conference will be held tomorrow morning. Please keep Jennie and his children in your prayers,” Swanson wrote.
The North Ogden city council also took to their Facebook and wrote that they have been “devastated” by their loss, per CNN.
Three Girl Scouts and their chaperone were killed Saturday when they were struck by a pickup truck as they picked up trash along a Wisconsin roadside. The fourth graders had done this community project before and were wearing bright green safety vests when the vehicle struck them. The pickup fled from the scene at the time, but the driver later surrendered himself without incident to the police.
Tornados ravaged Baltimore City leaving two dead in the partial collapse of an Amazon fulfillment center. The bodies have been recovered from the wreckage and the names of the deceased released to the public.
The Baltimore Sun provides more details.
“Baltimore Fire Chief Roman Clark said a 50-foot wall collapsed at the Amazon Fulfillment Center on Broening Highway. The man found under debris Friday night was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. The body of the second man was recovered around 7:30 a.m. Saturday after firefighters used heavy equipment to remove debris.”
The two who died were not employees of Amazon. Fifty-four-year-old Andrew Lindsey was a material handling technician who had been a contractor for about a year. The second person was 37-year-old Israel Espana Argote. Espana owned a trucking company. According to a friend of the family, he was a father of three.
There was nothing particularly exceptional about the storm itself. The Sun explains.
The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to block a lawsuit filed by young people to force the federal government to take steps in fighting climate change. The case was filed by 21 young people in 2015. The plaintiffs, who are now 11 to 22 years old, argued that the failure of government leaders to fight climate change violated their constitutional rights to a clean environment.
The suit aims to compel the government to scale back its support for fossil fuel extraction and production, and to support policies that aim to reduce the emission of greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming.
The Trump White House moved for an emergency ruling to block a hearing of the case set to begin on Monday in an Oregon federal court. The high court, however, refused to block the case on Friday. The Supreme Court turned down the request from the administration to halt the lawsuit and allowed the case to proceed toward a trial set later this year.
A tiger in India with a taste for human flesh has been shot dead after a two-year hunt. According to the New York Times, the female tiger, named T-1 by forest rangers, is believed to have killed at least 13 people before she was finally shot dead on Friday.
The hunters were supposed to use tranquilizers. Officials hoped to take the animal alive because she has two cubs. The six-year-old cat, however, reportedly roared and charged at the open-air patrol vehicle after she was hit by a tranquilizer dart at short range, prompting a hunter to shoot her with a fatal bullet to the belly.
The tigress is believed to have begun killing people in 2016, leading to a massive hunt that involved hundreds of people, heat-seeking drones, remote cameras, and a group of sharpshooters mounted on the backs of specially trained elephants.
Taking to the Saturday Night Live segment titled “Weekend Update” to deliver his brand of political comedy to the show’s audience, funnyman Pete Davidson made some controversial remarks during the most recent broadcast, according to the Washington Examiner. Flanked by his co-star Michael Che, Davidson was seen wearing a baggy orange jumpsuit and his trademark shocked locks during the ribald bit of rhetoric that has drawn some ire from the NBC vehicle’s viewing audience.
Offering up a bit of commentary of many political candidates involved in the upcoming midterm elections to be held on November 6, Davidson eventually got to Republican congressional hopeful Dan Crenshaw, an ex-Navy Seal who was wounded by an improvised explosive device (IED) while carrying out his mission in Afghanistan. Flashing an image on the screen which displayed Crenshaw’s headshot, illustrating the Republican candidate smiling while wearing his black eyepatch, Davidson held nothing back as he immediately launched into a series of controversial — to some offensive — comments.
James “Whitey” Bulger, the Irish mob boss who was allegedly murdered by one or more inmates shortly after his arrival at a notoriously violent West Virginia prison, was the third inmate to be murdered by other inmates at that prison this year.
As CNN reports, US Penitentiary Hazelton is so violent that inmates and even members of Congress were sounding the alarm about the prison’s violence, months before Bulger even arrived there.
On Tuesday, as reported at the time by the Inquisitr, Bulger was dead just hours after arriving at the notorious prison, apparently beaten to death by other mobsters who purportedly tried to cut out his tongue.
It is a good news/bad news scenario regardless of which side of the aisle you’re on. Democrats are poised to win the House with a cakewalk. But they will need something big to regain the Senate. In the article, “Election Update: Democrats Need A Systematic Polling Error To Win The Senate,” FiveThirtyEight explains the numbers.
“The divide between the House outlook and the Senate outlook continues to widen. Democrats’ chances of winning a majority remain at or near their all-time highs in our House forecast — ranging between 78 percent (7 in 9) and 85 percent (6 in 7) in the various versions of our model. But they’re at their lowest point yet in the Senate. All three versions of our forecast give them only about 1 in 7 shot (about 15 percent) of taking over the Senate from Republicans.”
A letter written by the Senate Judiciary Committee suggests that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers provided no substantial evidence to support their claims, Fox News reports. In a comprehensive 414 page report that was released by Committee chairman Chuck Grassley, a Republican Senator from Iowa, the Senate Judiciary Committee made it clear that the allegations against Kavanaugh had not been substantiated in any meaningful way.
“Following the separate and extensive investigations by both the Committee and the FBI, there was no evidence to substantiate any of the claims of sexual assault made against Justice Kavanaugh.”
A month after the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has pulled funding to the Saudi Arabian-based Misk Foundation, which was founded by Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman, according to the Seattle Times.
The decision ends a joint initiative between the Gates Foundation and the Misk Foundation called the Misk Grand Challenges, which made grants to organizations around the world who were working to create innovative solutions to development challenges. Last year, the Gates Foundation committed $5 million to the Misk Grand Challenges.
“Jamal Khashoggi’s abduction and murder are extremely troubling,” said the Gates Foundation in a statement. “We are observing current events with concern, and we do not plan to fund any subsequent rounds of the Misk Grant Challenges program.”
The Jewish nurse who treated Pittsburgh synagogue shooting suspect Robert Bowers says that he treated him with care and compassion, as he does for all of his patients. What’s more, Ari Mahler wrote a lengthy Facebook post calling for “love in the face of evil,” The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review is reporting.
Following last Saturday’s deadly shooting at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue, which claimed the lives of 11 people, suspect Robert Bowers was wounded in a shootout with police. The extent of his injuries remains unclear; regardless, he was taken while in police custody to Allegheny General Hospital.
There, the man who had written on social media of his belief that Jews were funding “genocide against his people”; who allegedly told a SWAT team member that he wanted to “kill all Jews”; and who allegedly had minutes earlier murdered 11 Jews, was treated by a Jewish doctor and a Jewish nurse.
On Thursday, November 1, a discussion to be held at a New York City synagogue between political candidates was canceled due to a spate of anti-Semitic graffiti being scrawled throughout the venue, the Inquisitr previously reported. With Ilana Glazer, star of Comedy Central series Broad City, set to host the proceedings, the event was a highly anticipated affair that had brought out quite the crowd before Glazer was forced to make a public statement canceling the event.
The graffiti in question, written in stark black marker, contained such phrases as “Kill all Jews!” as well as “Die Jew rats, we are here!” Other offensive statements made by the graffiti suspect included “Hitler,” and “Jews better be ready!”
Now, police have apprehended a suspect related to the matter, according to Fox News. 26-year-old James Polite was arrested on Friday, November 2, and was charged with criminal mischief as a hate crime connected with vandalism for his alleged acts upon the Union Temple in Brooklyn.
Horror master Stephen King has a good sense of humor.
The accomplished author of many famous novels trolled his namesake and Iowa GOP congressman Steve King on Twitter on Sunday morning. Urging Iowans to vote out the incumbent congressman, who has a history of making racist remarks, King said he doesn’t want to be confused with the “racist dumbbell” anymore.
“Iowans, for personal reasons I hope you’ll vote Steve King out,” the author tweeted. “I’m tired of being confused with this racist dumbbell.”
Walt Disney World is a place where people go on vacation to enjoy rides, shows, attractions, food, good and all around good times with famous characters. Sometimes, there can be some unexpected magic come their way in a number of different fashions, but no one could have expected this. Guests at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge were approached by an unknown woman late in the night and handed a newborn baby without explanation.
According to WFTV, a guest walked into the lobby of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and approached a cast member working inside. She let the Disney employee know that an unknown woman walked up to her while she was standing inside and just handed her a newborn baby before walking away.
The woman admitted that she has no idea who the woman was or why she brought the baby to her while they were outside of the resort. There were no reports of threats or anything violent from the woman.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been out of the spotlight for a while, but CNN says that Mueller might only be delaying making his findings public because of the midterms.
Justice Department guidelines ask prosecutors to be patient before elections, telling them to be cautious about their findings in the two months preceding them. But as the Inquisitr has previously reported, this unusual calm emanating from the special counsel’s office doesn’t necessarily mean that he is not planning something big. The last few weeks have seen Mueller’s team question Trump aide and longtime Republican operative Roger Stone, with his back-channel connection to WikiLeaks being one of the major points of inquiry.
The Kansas mom of a 9-week-old baby girl is warning other parents about a woman she met in an area Target store who attempted to abduct her daughter.
ABC 13 says that Rachel Youngs says she was grocery shopping in Target on Friday morning when she was approached by a woman with a dog in the baby goods section of the store. The woman gushed about how cute the baby was and asked to hold her. Youngs said yes, and immediately felt uncomfortable.
“I made a comment on how cute her dog was, and she went around to the front of my cart and made a comment about how cute my baby is. She made a comment saying, ‘yeah, I’ll trade you my dog for your baby,’ and I thought she was just joking.”
Youngs says that the woman started to walk away with her baby, and then when she started following, the woman gave the child back.
Fifty-one-year-old Susan Westwood, who came to be known as “South Park Susan,” turned herself in to the Sunset Beach, North Carolina Police Department Saturday according to WBTV. Officials there transported her to the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Department where authorities served her with an outstanding misdemeanor warrant and four criminal summons.
The atmosphere at the Virginia Zoo has become gloomy because a 2-week-old baby giraffe passed away on Saturday, November 3.
According to a news report by KRON 4, the Virginia Zoo announced on Saturday that the baby giraffe — which they named Baby G — had passed away. According to zoo officials, the giraffe was not feeling well and its condition worsened on Wednesday, October 31, when it started behaving differently and lost its appetite.
Zoo veterinarians immediately recognized the giraffe’s decline in health and started working to save the calf’s life, the report detailed.
“Our calf was given every viable option to help him, including antibiotics, fluids, and plasma transfusions — which help to boost the immune systems of neonate giraffe calves that don’t nurse from their mothers right away.”
A Texas couple is facing decades behind bars after admitting that they raped children as young as eight months old and shared video of the attacks on the internet.
This week, prosecutors in Killeen announced that 26-year-old Christopher Almaguer and his wife, 27-year-old Sarah Rashelle Almaguer, pleaded guilty to one count of sexual exploitation of children and one count of production of child pornography. As WFLA reported, prosecutors said that the couple admitted to filming the sexually explicit videos of themselves assaulting young children.
Investigators said they compiled a list of at least 25 victims, with the youngest being eight months old and the oldest 14 years old. All of the victims were from the Central Texas area, the report noted, although it was unclear what, if any, relation they may have had to the couple.
