Orinda child psychologist may see new criminal charges, as plea deal begins to fall apart

OAKLAND — A plea deal between the federal government and a disgraced child psychologist appears to be falling apart, in light of new allegations that he continued to view graphic images of kids while awaiting trial on similar charges.

This development is the latest twist in the shocking case of Kenneth Breslin, 69, a child psychologist who was running a private practice in Orinda called A Child’s Point of View, until authorities raided his home last year and found a trove of child porn, according to court records. He was indicted last December, and bailed out of jail within days.

NC’s CUE Center begins annual tour to highlight missing persons cases

— Working to bring missing people home is the goal of North Carolina’s Community United Effort’s Center for Missing Persons.

Volunteers from the organization started their multi-state “On the Road to Remember” tour on Friday. This year’s tour will highlight about 90 missing persons cases, some of which have ties to the Triangle.

Kara Roberts has been filled with questions for the last 17 years. Her sister, Leah, went missing in 2000, when she was a student at North Carolina State University.

Leah’s car was found in Washington state nine days after she took an unannounced road trip, but she was never found.

“The law enforcement has been very active in her case out there, but unfortunately, we still don’t have answers,” Roberts said.

Leah is one hundreds of thousands of people who are reported missing each year, and the nonprofit is working to put a dent in the number.

They highlight different

Amid ‘Free Lamonte’ chants, hearing begins in case of KCK man imprisoned for 23 years

On the day Lamonte McIntyre was sentenced to consecutive life terms in prison, he said just 13 words to the court:

“Judge, I would like to tell the court that I’m innocent. That’s all.”

On Thursday, more than two decades later, McIntyre’s family and friends poured into a Wyandotte County courtroom for a hearing that has called into question the imprisonment of a 17-year-old man.

McIntyre, now 41, smiled at the approximately 50 friends and relatives who had assembled in the courtroom.

An innocent man has languished in prison for 23 years, his loved ones say. In a rally outside the courthouse beforehand, they cried: “I say free, you say Lamonte.”

“Free!”

“Lamonte!”

Work has started in a Texas laboratory to try to identify skeletal remains that were found last year in the city of Leavenworth.

“They’ve begun their work, but it’s not complete yet,” said Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

Police believe the remains are those of a caucasian man who was between 35-55 years of age. There were no obvious signs of foul play.

As investigators tried to identify the skeleton, they focused on William Creech, who was reported missing from Leavenworth in

Jury selection begins for man accused of killing Baby Doe

Jury selection began Monday in the murder trial of a man charged in the killing of a 2-year-old girl whose image was shared by millions of social media users after her body washed up on a Boston Harbor island.

Michael McCarthy is charged in the 2015 death of Bella Bond.

The girl was known only as Baby Doe for months as authorities struggled to identify her. Using photos of her remains, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children created a composite image of what the girl might have looked like when she was alive. The widely shared image showed a chubby-cheeked, brown-eyed girl.

The girl’s mother, Rachelle Bond, pleaded guilty to helping dispose of her daughter’s body. As part of a plea agreement with prosecutors, Bond has agreed to testify against McCarthy.

McCarthy, who was Bond’s boyfriend, has denied killing the girl. His lawyer has said Bond told McCarthy her daughter was taken
