    When attorney Jose Baez first met Aaron Hernandez in 2016, the former NFL star was already serving life in prison. The then-26-year-old had been arrested for the murder of Odin Lloyd, an acquaintance, in 2013, after three seasons with the New England Patriots. Now, he needed a lawyer for another indictment, involving an earlier double-homicide. Baez took the case, and grew close with the athlete. He helped Hernandez win an acquittal on April 14, 2017, but days later, on April 19, the 27-year-old hanged himself in his cell. A brain scan revealed that the former tight-end had suffered severe brain...

    On Tuesday night, more than two dozen people gathered near the spot where Michael Brown Jr. was gunned down three years ago on Aug. 9, 2014, to mourn and remember the 18-year-old whose life was taken from him and to reconstruct a makeshift memorial in the spot where he died. “We can never forget this,” activist Meldon Moffitt told a group residents and other community activists as they stood on the site. “This is ground zero.” Mike’s death sparked months of protests and served as the catalyst to the Black Lives Matter movement. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that those...

    A Mexican immigrant married to an American citizen hasn’t seen his wife in a year — all because his tattoos made him look like a criminal, his family says. Ruben Zamora, 29, has lived in the U.S. since he was 8 years old — and when he left the country in July 2014, he expected to be able to return to his wife and two children within weeks, his lawyers said. Instead, his request to return from Mexico was denied, because officials at the American Consulate said he has gang tattoos — and, therefore, was part of a criminal enterprise....

    Hours after detectives arrested Vincent Smothers in a suburban Detroit alley in the spring of 2008, they say, he came out with a stunning confession: "I don't have a profession," he allegedly told an investigator. "I kill people for money." Then, police say, he laid out details of how each of eight hired hits happened. He stalked his victims before shooting them at close range. He killed some while talking on his cell phone and fired on others even when they appeared to lay lifeless on the ground. Even in Detroit, which had more than 300 slayings last year, Smothers'...

He told paramedics that a masked mugger had blasted him in the crutch in a bungled robbery. -- Now - after surgeons stitched his manhood back together - he's facing up to three years in jail for breaching Germany's tough new anti gun laws.

    The brutal murders of Brooklyn-raised Marine Sgt. Jan Pawel Pietrzak and his wife had nothing to do with the fact that he was white and she was black, a top cop said Thursday."There's nothing to suggest what happened was a racial crime," Investigator Josh Button of the Riverside County Sheriff's Central Homicide unit said. "I've seen that reported, but it's just people looking at the case from the outside and making up their own minds."RELATED: MURDERED MARINE'S MOM WRITES OBAMA Button addressed the sensitive question of race after four Marines - all of them black - were charged last week...
