Son follows late father’s footsteps into crime scene investigation

For 21-year-old Jake Cushman, the drive to be a crime scene investigator starts with his dad.

The recent Portland Community College graduate said that growing up in Vancouver, he was proud of his father, Adam Cushman, who worked as a criminalist for the Portland Police Bureau. The two were close, enjoying the same “nerdy” interest such as “Star Wars” and superheroes. Together, they loved watching the show “Smallville,” a show that depicts a young Clark Kent as he comes to terms with his superpowers.

But one Sunday night in February 2010, Adam Cushman was killed in a crash on his way home from work.

A dump truck driver was driving in the 7300 block of Northeast 182nd Avenue when his engine stalled. His truck was partially in the

Father reminisces about last he had heard from daughter

The last time Rodney Roberson saw his daughter Bianca was on Sunday, June 25, when they went bowling together.

“She would twirl the ball up in the air and she knocked down a couple of the pins,” Roberson recalled in a phone interview with the Tribune Thursday. “She couldn’t really bowl but she beat me. We had fun that day, too. That Sunday we had a lot of fun.”

Friday, he and his family will lay 18-year-old Bianca to rest, following funeral services at St. Paul’s Baptist Church, 1 Hagerty Blvd., in West Chester, beginning at 11 a.m.

“She was a spoiled brat, but that was my baby though,” Roberson reflected. “We were looking forward to her succeeding and doing the things she wanted to do as far as her career.”

Father: Deputy shoved mom when she tried to hold son’s body



WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) As a grieving mother tried to hold her son’s body after he was killed by a Florida sheriff’s deputy, another deputy pushed her to the hospital floor, her husband testified Thursday.

Dick Adams told a federal civil court jury he and his wife Lydia rushed 110 miles after learning their unarmed 24-year-old son, Seth Adams, had been shot by Palm Beach County Sgt. Michael Custer on May 16, 2012. The Adamses are seeking unspecified millions in a lawsuit that alleges the shooting was unjustified. Custer contends he fired after Seth Adams attacked him.

Father of homicide victim praises GCPD

George Kuhn knows what it takes to serve in law enforcement. During his 25 years of service, the former police chief oversaw departments in several towns across Ohio before also serving in as a deputy in a sheriff’s office. He retired in 2001.

“I realize the dangers of this day. Every time you put on the badge, you are a target of the enemy. I’ve been through that over the years,” Kuhn said.

Having the opportunity to console devastated families, Kuhn was tragically thrown on the opposite end of the spectrum three years ago.

In September 2013, George’s son William Kuhn, was found dead in Dogwood Park in Goose Creek. He was legally blind, according to George, and had been fatally shot in the back of the head, after which the shooter stole William’s vehicle and fled the scene, officials reported.

Stephon Johnson, 27, of Goose Creek, was suspected of the murder and captured

Murder Mystery: Des Moines Police trying to find homeless father’s killer, solve year-old Christmas Eve case

 

Cisneros, Danny

DES MOINES —  The sounds of nearby gunfire last Christmas Eve.  It’s something no 7-year-old should ever have to hear. “I heard the gunshots and then we both ducked down,” said Florence Paige’s daughter. They were at home when Danny Cisneros was shot to death in the stairwell of the apartment next door in the Pacific Ridge neighborhood. “It needs to be a safe area for my kids so I’m really upset that it happened,” said Paige.

Cisneros was found with his wife and son trying to stop the bleeding. “The victim was here in the foyer on the steps leading down to the apartment. The shooter was all the way over there near the back-end of that white car that’s parked,” said Des Moines Police Det. Fred Gendreau.  The family was homeless. “Christmas Eve night. It was raining so they came into
