Main jailed after interrupting crime scene investigation, officers say

He apparently didn’t have the best timing.

Panhandle deputies said they noticed a car driving quicky down a road,  swerving around their around parked patrol cars as they were investigating a robbery, reports the Panama News Journal.

The driver, Troy Alexander Duncan, then allegedly abruptly stopped near them and got out of the car.

And no wonder, as officers found 12 Mason jars filled with grass, strips of acid and a bag of Xanax pills in the car, according to his arrest report.

No gun found on or near victim after fatal shooting, police officers testify in Kepler murder trial

The teenager fatally shot by former Tulsa Police Officer Shannon Kepler in 2014 didn’t have a gun on or near him when officers began investigating the shooting, several law enforcement witnesses told a jury Friday.

Kepler, 57, is on trial for the fourth time on a first-degree murder charge in the Aug. 5, 2014, death of 19-year-old Jeremey Lake, who briefly dated Kepler’s estranged daughter, Lisa, after meeting her about a week before he died. Kepler’s previous trials on the same charge ended with mistrials due to hung juries in November, February and July.

Kepler has contended that he shot Lake twice in self-defense because he saw him carrying a gun, but a series of officers involved in the case against him each told jurors they didn’t recover a firearm at the crime scene, which was in the area of Lake’s aunt’s home in the 200 block of North Maybelle Avenue.

The crash took place at 10:10 a.m. at mile marker 113.2 in the northbound lanes of the Turnpike’s eastern spur, State Police Trooper Alejandro Goez said. 

While the cause and circumstance of the crash remains under investigation, Goez said the driver of the Toyota sedan was “entrapped” and needed to be extricated. The driver, whose name, age and gender were not immediately available, was alert and conscious when they were medevaced to the Bergen County trauma center with “serious injuries,” Goez added.

Overhead footage taken at the scene by a CBS news helicopter showed the tractor trailer parked in front of the warped sedan in the shoulder of the busy roadway.

Questions remain after infant dies in Franklin County

FRANKLIN Co., Va. (WDBJ7) Questions remain after a one year old baby dies in Franklin County.

Captain Paul Caldwell at the sheriff’s office says that the child’s mother made the 911 call for her unresponsive child. When they showed up to try and save the child, it was too late.

Eldridge Starkey said, “There’s so many questions. When you’re in a quiet neighborhood like this and something happens like this, it’s kind of shocking.”
