Teenager dies after being struck in Clay County

This afternoon at 12:38 p.m., the Clay County Sheriffs Office received a 911 call reporting a car versus pedestrian crash in front of a residence on State Road 246 just west of SR 159. The crash resulted in the death of a 15-year-old girl.

Preliminary investigation revealed a maroon 2009 Nissan Quest van, driven by 39-year-old Stephen D. Agee of Jasonville was eastbound on SR 246, when a 15-year-old female traveled south from a residence across SR 246 and into his path. The right front of the van impacted the young girl causing traumatic injuries. She was transported to Terre Haute Regional Hospital for treatment, but later succumbed there to her injuries. The teenager was reportedly attempting to retrieve a recreational ball that strayed south from the yard across SR 246. She was a visitor to nearby home.

The crash is being investigated by Indiana State Police Detective

Woman accused in ex-husband’s slaying still blaming son at retrial

Lanny Horwitz’s designer luggage was packed for a trip with a lady friend and business partner when he stepped into the shower. Then his ex-wife Donna entered the bathroom and fired 10 shots from two guns until Horwitz, 66, was mortally wounded, a prosecutor said Wednesday.

The Sept. 30, 2011 shooting was her way of making a statement, Palm Beach County Assistant State Attorney Aleathea McRoberts told the jury at the start of Donna Horwitz’s retrial: “I’m not taking it anymore because you are Mr. Meanie.”

But attorneys for Horwitz, 70, say it was another occupant in the Jupiter residence that had the true motive and opportunity for the killing — her son Radley.

Miller family announces 3-day crime-solving training symposium …

WEST VALLEY CITY — After more than six years, the death of Sherry Black remains unsolved.

Since Black’s death, Heidi and Greg Miller have kept up efforts in hopes of finding justice and a sense of peace. On Tuesday, the Miller family announced a new effort in hopes of not only solving Black’s case, but helping law enforcement across the country better solve their own cases.
