“THAT’S MY CHILD!” — Man Offers $10000 Reward To Get Back Stolen Monkey!

Carl Minix and Henry

SOUTHWEST RANCHES — Broward County saw a kidnapping of an unusual nature on Thursday. The abductee? A 3-month-old capuchin monkey named Henry.

Henry’s owner, Carl Minix, returned home to his Southwest Ranches home late after dinner to find the small simian had been taken from a bedroom window by an intruder.

That’s my child,” a distraught Minix said. “I mean, I worked a long time to be able to get him, and it wasn’t an easy task.”

Minix wasn’t overstating things. Florida law stipulates that to keep an animal like Henry, you have to have a permit and 1,000 hours of relevant care experience.

Given the significant investment in time and his emotional bonding with the animal, Minix wasn’t about to take the disappearance lying down. The bereft monkey-dad promptly

Museum offers intoxicating exhibit

Dangerous toxins were used by hat makers for hundreds of years — poisons that caused tremors, pathological shyness and extreme irritability.

The mistake gave birth to the expression, “mad as a hatter.”

This and dozens of other morbidly fascinating tidbits of information can be found at the Indiana State Museum’s “The Power of Poison” exhibit, on loan from the American Museum of Natural History in New York City through Feb. 11.

The exhibit covers the spectrum from poisons found in nature to poisons of literature and myth. Visitors should allow at least two hours to take in all you never needed (or even wanted) to

Crime Solvers Offers Reward for Information on Home Invasion Suspects

Charles County Sheriff’s detectives are seeking the identities of three men responsible for a home invasion and robbery.

The weaponization of plea bargain offers | Opinion

In a previous column, I expressed appreciation for the work done on bail reform in New Jersey. My support for the switch to a largely non-monetary bail system comes from what I have seen of the impact on people’s lives. No longer do people have to sit in jail only because they don’t have the money for cash bail.

Bail reform is a good foundational step, but is reform is needed in other areas. One such area is plea bargains. I honestly never gave plea agreements much thought until an acquaintance shared an article from The Atlantic’s September edition, “Innocence is Irrelevant” by Emily Yoffe.

It turns out that 94 percent of state-level criminal cases and 97 percent of federal ones are the subject of plea bargains. This means that very few cases go to trial. It also means that prosecutors rarely need to meet any burden of proof — when

Be proactive: Detective offers tips on protecting children from online predators

In May, Detective Jeff Rich of Plano Police’s Criminal Investigation Division was instrumental in cracking a child pornography sting. Operation Medusa resulted in 15 arrests ranging from promotion of child pornography to online solicitation of a minor.

On Aug. 11, the Collin County Sheriff’s Department arrested Kenneth Bailey for online solicitation of a minor, yet another link to the Medusa web. As children head back to school, and schedules begin to fill up, Det. Rich still advises parents and students to keep internet safety in the forefront of their minds.

“Our children’s lives are so different than what our lives were like. A lot of parents like to bury their heads in the sand and not get involved or talk about it because they don’t understand it,” Rich said. “So that’s what our presentations typically do. We try to expose the parents to some of the things that the

‘Making a Murderer’ Season 2 Air Date, News: Steven Avery’s Lawyer Offers $10K for Proof of Guilt

“Making a Murderer” subject Steven Avery’s lawyer Kathleen Zellner is offering $10,000 to anyone who can prove her client’s guilt. Zellner unveiled “The Steven Avery Proof of Guilt Challenge” after a group of conspiracy theorists mocked the lawyer for insisting Avery was wrongly convicted of murdering Teresa Halbach in 2005.

Reuters/NetflixSteven Avery is shown in a booking photo from the Netflix documentary series “Making a Murderer”, in this handout provided by Netflix, January 13, 2016.

The contest, which Zellner announced on Twitter last Thursday, will require challengers to answer 100 questions regarding Avery’s case.

“The Proof of Guilt Challenge is specifically designed to elicit from these commentators credible evidentiary support for their opinion that Mr. Avery is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt,” Zellner wrote in an email explaining the challenge, according to Patch.

She invited anyone, including those in law enforcement and
