    Fake Kidnapping, Filmed for Educational Video, Angers Parents

    (SEQUIM, Wash.) — On a seemingly ordinary Saturday afternoon at the park in Sequim, Wash., two masked men grabbed a 4-year-old boy sitting on a park bench near his mother. The men proceeded to put the child in a van and drive off. Parents reacted frantically, some running after the car attempting to get a license plate number, others called 911. Their panic turned to outrage upon discovering that the abduction was a hoax in order to film a YouTube video to promote “kidnapping awareness,” according to the creators. Jason Holden, 24, and his twin brother Jeremy, coordinated the hoax… Read more

    Accused Boston Bomber Can See Autopsy Photos of Victims

    (BOSTON) — A federal judge in Boston ruled Wednesday that accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will be allowed to view the autopsy photos of his alleged victims, a move that the prosecution had argued would “re-victimize” the families of the dead. Tsarnaev was not in court when Judge George O’Toole announced the ruling at a pre-trial hearing, shortly before the defense and prosecution began arguments concerning Tsarnaev’s visitation procedures. In mid-March the prosecution had filed a motion requesting that Tsarnaev be barred from seeing some of the autopsy photos of those killed when two bombs exploded near the finish… Read more

    Bear Attack Victim Left Horrifying Phone Message for Husband

    (LAKE MARY, Fla.) — The Florida woman who was mauled by a bear while at home Saturday unintentionally left a nearly six-minute voicemail message on her husband’s phone that captures the voracity of the attack. “There was just a voicemail of five minutes and 43 seconds of me screaming,” said Terri Frana, whose cell phone dialed her husband while she was in the throes of a black bear’s jaw Saturday evening. “He didn’t answer,” she said. Frana, of Lake Mary, Fla., was found collapsed to the ground inside her living room by her son, who dialed 911, moments after the… Read more

    Man Charged After Suspicious Bags Found Near Boston Marathon Finish Line

    (BOSTON) — A man was charged Tuesday night with possession of a hoax device, disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace after two suspicious bags were found near the finish line of the Boston Marathon amid stepped-up security on the anniversary of the bombings that shook the city a year ago. The device the suspect had was a rice cooker, not an actual explosive device, police said. The two suspicious bags — only one of which police say they believe the man dropped — were both exploded Tuesday evening after the suspect had been detained for questioning. “With the marathon coming,… Read more

    Jewish Center Shooting Suspect Was Pen Pals with Would-Be Bomber

    (OVERLAND PARK, Mo.) — The former KKK leader accused of murdering three people at two Jewish centers in Kansas was pen pals with Kevin Harpham, the man who plotted to bomb the MLK Day parade in Spokane, Wash., in 2011, the government says. ABC News acquired from prosecutors copies of the postcards and letters they allegedly exchanged in March and April of that year, shortly after Harpham was jailed. Frazier Glenn Miller, currently facing murder charges, encouraged Harpham to “stay strong,” and offered to help set up a legal defense fund for the convict, who later admitted to planting a… Read more

    Former KKK Member Says Jewish Center Shooting Suspect Went 'Insane'

    (OVERLAND PARK, Kan.) — A leading white nationalist says the accused gunman in the Jewish center shootings in Kansas was a raging alcoholic who long ago lost ties with his own pro-white community. “I think Glenn had gone insane, completely insane in recent years,” Don Black, a former Ku Klux Klan member and the founder of Stormfront, the “White Pride World Wide” website, told ABC News. “Probably because of the alcohol. But whatever it was, he did us a lot of damage this weekend. “He killed Christians. The whole thing was completely insane. His brain has rotted,” Black added.
