Police: Shooting incidents might be linked

Police are investigating whether two shooting incidents that happened just minutes apart on Monday afternoon are connected.

Around 3:30 p.m. Monday, police were dispatched to the 4100 block of High Street on a report that there was a residence that had been shot at, Logansport Police Department Det. Brad Miller said. Upon arrival, officers found two occupants inside the house. Neither were hurt, Miller said.

Officers then contacted Indiana State Police’s crime scene investigator, who later processed and secured the scene.

Around the same time, LPD officers were also dispatched to the first block of 18th Street in reference to a suicidal person, Miller said. When they arrived at the scene, Miller said officers heard what they believed to be a gunshot behind the residence. Miller also said that as officers rounded the residence, they observed an unidentified male take his own life.

ISP was called in to secure that scene as well, and

What The Tensing Trial Sidebar Conversations Reveal

Court documents unsealed this week reveal some of the ‘behind-the-scenes’ conversations that took part during Ray Tensing’s second trial. More documents are expected soon detailing in-chamber discussions, too.

Tensing was charged with murder and voluntary manslaughter for the 2015 shooting death of Sam DuBose. Two juries failed to reach verdicts and the charges were dismissed Monday. A federal civil rights violation investigation continues.

Transcripts of the sidebar conversations tell what was discussed at various points during the trial when Judge Leslie Ghiz met with assistant prosecutors Seth Tieger and Stacey DeGraffenreid and defense attorney Stew Mathews.

The first documents show the prosecution was concerned about the number of African-Americans the defense was dismissing during jury selection. Twice prosecutors requested Mathews give race-neutral reasons citing Batson v. Kentucky, the Supreme Court decision that says one can’t use a peremptory challenge (a challenge where no reason is needed) to exclude a potential juror based

Reasons To Look Forward To Lee Joon Gi’s Role In Upcoming Drama “Criminal Minds”

Lee Joon Gi will be taking on the lead role of tvN’s “Criminal Minds” as Kim Hyun Joon, a talented crime scene investigator and profiler who works at the NCI.

How Salvador Dalí’s Mustache Endured Death

WIKIMEDIA, ROGER HIGGINSWhen Salvador Dalí’s body was exhumed from his tomb in Figueres, Spain, on Thursday (July 20), officials noted that his iconic mustache remained remarkably unscathed.

Lluís Peñuelas, the secretary general of the Gala-Dalí Foundation, says the artist’s mustache retained “its classic 10-past-10 position,” like the hands of a clock stretched out, The New York Times reports. Dalí’s embalmer called it “a miracle.”

But to forensic scientists who deal with corpses on a regular basis, the tenacity of dead people’s hair is anything but miraculous.

“For human remains that are placed in airtight conditions such as coffins or crypts, it is entirely possible for hair to preserve over very long periods of time,” says anthropologist Tiffany Saul in an email to The Scientist. Saul recently earned her doctorate from the University of Tennessee studying isotope values in human hair following decomposition. Even after

A proposed $407 million to Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Fire Rescue: How your tax dollars could be spent

If Orange County commissioners give final approval to a $4 billion budget proposed Tuesday, the Sheriff’s Office and Fire Rescue Department plan to create jobs, raise salaries, build new facilities and pay for new programs.

On Tuesday, commissioners gave an initial OK to the 2017-2018 budget, which included nearly $407 million for the two agencies.

Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs said in a statement that the $234 million for the Sheriff’s Office and $173 million for Fire Rescue would go toward “keeping up with growth, maintaining acceptable response times, and simultaneously ensuring the safety of citizens.”

“Public safety remains our number one priority, as tragic events like last year’s Pulse shooting are reminders of our sacrosanct duty to protect our citizens and visitors, including our first responders,” Jacobs said.
