Search for 19-year-old student with autism temporarily suspended …


CYPRESS, Texas — Authorities have temporarily suspended the search for a teen who went missing last Wednesday.

According to Texas Equusearch, the organization will suspend the search until investigators discover a more specific area where 19-year-old Nahum Legaspi could have gone.

According to the Cypress Fairbanks ISD Police Department, Legaspi, a high school student with autism, was last seen on April 26 near Cypress Ranch High School. Authorities said he is not in good health.

Authorities said all suspected areas have been searched twice. A helicopter from the DPS with a high-tech locating system and tracking dogs were used to locate Nahum. Both search methods were unsuccessful.

Nahum was last seen wearing a blue t-shirt, green shorts, and beige shoes.

If anyone has any details about Nahum’s disappearance, please call the Cypress Fairbanks ISD Police Department at

Is MH370 in NORTH KOREA? Shock theory Kim Jong-un HIJACKED missing Boeing 777

The Malaysia Airlines plane’s disappearance while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014, is one of the world’s biggest ever unsolved mysteries, and there have been numerous conspiracy theories over what may have happened to it.

The North Korean conspiracy theory centres on rumours that Kim Jong-un, the dictator of the hardline regime, ordered the hijacking of the flight because he wanted it for experimentation.

Malaysia is now in a diplomatic row with North Korea, after secret agents from the secretive regime were suspected of using a chemical nerve-agent to assassinate Kim’s own half-brother Kim Jong-nam in Kuala Lumpur airport, because it was feared he would keep speaking out about horrors inside the secretive country.

A discussion about the theory on social media site Reddit suggested MH370 had enough fuel to be flown to North Korea.

Demand For Oklahoma Innocence Project Grows After Successful Exonerations

 

The Oklahoma Innocence Project’s caseload is growing after the non-profit scored a legal victory last year that exonerated two former inmates.

In May 2016, Malcolm Scott and De’Marchoe Carpenter left prison for the first time in 16 years after the Oklahoma Innocence Project cleared the two men. Both were wrongfully convicted in the 1994 murder of Karen Summers and sentenced to life plus 170 years.

The Journal Record’s Molly Fleming writes more potential clients are now reaching out to the Oklahoma Innocence Project after that first success, according to executive director Vicki Behenna.

“(The two men’s exonerations) have raised the profile of the clinic,” Behenna said. “There are at least two results. It’s not just some theory class. People are starting to see the work and the results.”

 

Students at the Oklahoma City University School of Law work with Behenna to help pursue cases in which Read more at: http://kgou.org/post/demand-oklahoma-innocence-project-grows-after-successful-exonerations

The Keepers: Netflix release date, trailer and more on the ‘new Making a Murderer’

Maskell allegedly turned to Jean and said: “You see what happens when you say bad things about people?”

She said: “He terrified me to the point that I would never open my mouth.”

In 2013 another student of Sister Cathy’s, Gemma Hoskins, launched a fresh bid to find the killer.

Gemma and a few like-minded Keough women have since investigated at least a dozen leads, and have looked into possible connections between Sister Cathy’s murder than those of other young girls in the area around the same time.

The Keepers follows their conversations with friends, relatives, journalists, government officials and Baltimore citizens determined to uncover the truth.

‘Some Mother’s Boy’ one step closer to being identified after 96 years

A teenage boy who was killed by a train nearly a century ago might be closer to being identified.

“Some Mother’s Boy” died April 1, 1921, when he was struck in the head by a train in Georgetown. At the time, officials tried and failed to find his family. He was buried in Georgetown Cemetery with the tombstone that simply reads, “Some Mother’s Boy.” He was about 17.

On March 10, nearly 96 years after the boy’s death, his grave was exhumed. Samples of the boy’s bones and teeth were collected that would be used to help identify him.

The FBI is working with the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System to find the teenager’s identity. The system, also known as NamUs, is a national centralized repository and resource for missing persons and unidentified decedent records.

FBI joins hunt for body of Hawaiian child missing for two decades

A FBI forensic team will join Hawaii Island police in the search for the body of a 6-year-old boy who went missing more than two decades ago, Fox News said Thursday.

Peter Boy Kema Jr. became the subject of one of most well-known missing child cases in the state’s history.

The child’s father, Peter Kema Sr., has a long record of abuse against the child from the time he was just weeks old. However, until recently Kema adamantly denied killing his son or knowing of his whereabouts.

Prosecutors said that, after enduring years of suffering from severe neglect and horrific mental and physical abuse, Peter Boy ultimately died of septic shock.

The consistent physical abuse and neglect that Kema and his wife, Jaylin Kema, put their tiny son through and that ultimately led to his death, sparked outrage throughout the state. The Kemas retained parental rights, despite 2,000 pages of Child Protective Services records

A DNA test now shows, however, that Jacobsen did not commit the crime, Vanessa Potkin, a lawyer for the Innocence Project, told a judge on Tuesday. GBI tests show that male DNA from the woman’s rape kit could not have come from Jacobsen, she said, and she is asking the court to grant Jacobsen a new trial.

But District Attorney Layla
