    Police yesterday were searching for multiple suspects who fled the scene of a fatal predawn shooting at the Holiday Inn Express in Dorchester. Police responded to the hotel, located just steps from Interstate 93 South, at 4:15 a.m. yesterday after receiving a call that someone had been shot. When they arrived, they found a man in his mid-20s in a fifth-floor room suffering from apparent gunshot wounds, police said.

    An Australian woman who stabbed and killed her grandfather claimed that the TV show “American Horror Story” inspired her to commit the crime, The New York Times reported. In August 2016, Brittney Jade Dwyer, 20, murdered her 81-year-old grandfather, Robert Whitwell, in his Craigmore home. Dwyer and her friend Bernadette Burns, 22, traveled to Whitwell’s home in Adelaide with plans to steal his lifesavings. The two promised to do “whatever was necessary” to get their hands on the money. The girls arrived at Whitwell’s home at 11 a.m. Burns waited in the car while Dwyer entered the house with a...

    A Florida woman is facing a murder charge after, authorities say, she punished her 9-year-old cousin by sitting on her, causing the child to go into cardiac arrest. Veronica Posey, 64, told investigators that her cousin, Dericka Lindsay, had been misbehaving, so she decided to sit on top of the child as punishment. Minutes later, Dericka said she couldn’t breathe. She was unconscious by the time Posey stood up, according to an arrest report from the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.

    RALEIGH, N.C. -- A North Carolina teenager accused of decapitating his mother is psychotic and won't be prosecuted on a murder charge, his attorney said Wednesday. A judge ordered 19-year-old Oliver Funes Machada involuntarily committed to a state psychiatric hospital after a series of mental health evaluations, including those by state experts, defense attorney Boyd Sturges said. Machada was ruled incompetent to proceed with his case. "This is consistent with what our position is," Sturges said. "We feel that Mr. Machada is very, very seriously deranged. And clearly he's psychotic, and we think the state's correct."   Sturges said the...

    A woman was raped, whipped and beheaded before a cheering mob in the Democratic Republic of Congo — as punishment for dishing up “forbidden fish” to a group of rebels who then drank her blood. The atrocity in the main square of Luebo, in the province of Kasaď-Occidental, occurred on April 8 and was captured in stomach-churning video that only emerged this week, France 24 reported. The naked woman is seen being dragged in front of a crowd by members of an armed group claiming allegiance to the Kamuina Nsapu rebel movement. “They said she gave them beans that contained...

Nick Corvino, 30, was found in his Kissimmee, Fla., home on Tuesday with 13 gunshot wounds to his back, head and legs, according to an arrest affidavit cited by the Orlando Sentinel. His roommate Scott Waddell, 45, who was arrested and charged with first-degree murder, later told authorities he had entertained thoughts about killing you men.

    On Oct. 1, a 64-year-old Nevada man opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers from a high-rise hotel in Las Vegas, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds. If you don't know his name, you can easily find it online, in print or on TV. But you won't learn it from this column. Notoriety may have been what he was after in methodically plotting the slaughter. He may have intended to outdo other mass shooters. He may have hoped his name would gain a sinister immortality. University of Alabama criminologist Adam Lankford has explained the repetition of such incidents as a...

    H.R. McMaster, President Trump’s embattled national security adviser, labeled the September 11, 2001, Islamic terrorist attacks “mass murder attacks,” instead of calling them acts of terrorism. McMaster made the comments during a Tuesday event at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) marking the 70th anniversary of the National Security Council (NSC). He was addressing the expansion of the NSC from about fifty members in the 1960s, when it was run by Henry Kissinger, another CSIS speaker, to its current size of more than 360 employees. “What has contributed to the growth over time, as well, from 50 or...

    RICHARDSON, Texas (KTRK) -- The father of a missing 3-year-old in North Texas allegedly left his daughter alone in an area wrought with coyotes as punishment for not drinking her milk, according to charging documents. Police in Richardson, Texas, issued an Ambert Alert for Sherin Mathews, who was reported missing early Saturday morning. Her father, Wesley Mathews, was later arrested and has been charged with abandoning or endangering a child. According to investigators, Wesley Mathews said in an interview that he told Sherin to stand near a large tree outside his home in the wee hours of the morning after...
  • There's No Correlation Between Gun Ownership, Mass Shootings, and Murder Rates

    Mises Institute ^ | 10/09/2015 | Ryan McMaken
    While I was fact checking today's Mises Daily article, I checked some correlation coefficients of my own so I didn't have to rely on Volokh's numbers as my only source. I approached the data a little differently than Volokh did and instead of using a subjective ranking by an organization like the Brady organization, I just looked at the rate of gun ownership in the state. After all, the argument is often that more guns and more gun owners leads to more violence. So, I looked at the correlation between the gun ownership rate (a percentage on the x axis)...

    The Las Vegas massacre has been weighing heavily on the hearts and minds of everyone, including celebrities. In the immediate wake of the tragedy, we saw stars calling for better gun control laws, and now, a day later, we’re seeing many famous women share a powerful quote attributed to — but actually not originated by — Gloria Steinem, which compares gun control and abortion, as the House voted on legislation banning abortion after 20 weeks. Gloria Steinem didn’t say that guns vs. abortion quote that’s gone viral. (Photo: Getty Images) Gisele Bündchen, Kate Upton, Karlie Kloss, Kelly Rowland, Elisabeth Moss,...

    There were 762 murders in Chicago in 2016, the most in 19 years.  On average, there was mass killing – by different perps – that adds up bigger than the Las Vegas massacre each month.  Where is the wall-to-wall coverage?  Chicago has very strict gun laws, with no gun shops in Chicago.  The Chicago police and politicians know where the criminals, gangs, and guns are, so why don't they get them off the street?  We see more effort to restrain the cops instead of restraining the criminals.  In Chicago and elsewhere, we repeatedly see killings and other serious crimes committed by...

    Who are the two police who first engaged the shooter? It was an incredibly brave move to engage a shooter with an automatic weapon, using only pistols, if that is what actually happened. Apparently, approximately ten minutes into the heinous crime, a hotel security person and a policeman engaged the shooter and one of them was shot through the door. They probably had only hand guns and were seriously outgunned. It was approximately another hour before SWAT team members were able to set a charge and breach the door, finding the shooter had taken his life. This early contact with...

    Former American football star and double murder suspect OJ Simpson has been freed on parole after nine years in prison for an armed robbery in Las Vegas. Simpson, now 70, spent 8˝ years behind bars for a 2007 armed confrontation with two sports memorabilia traders in a Las Vegas hotel room. He was sentenced to up to 33 years in High Desert State Prison, but won parole in July due to good behavior and other credits earned in custody.

    Hugh Hefner grieved in green silk. One of his most promising Playboy Playmates, 20-year-old Dorothy Stratten, had been murdered, and Hefner was giving Village Voice writer Teresa Carpenter a glimpse at what he had otherwise kept private. After Stratten was shot in the face by her estranged husband on Aug. 14, 1980, Hefner issued an emotionless news release and went into a media-free seclusion. In his trademark silk pajamas, Hefner looked somber. Carpenter described the sight as, “The incongruous spectacle of a sybarite in mourning.” ... “Death of a Playmate,” which would win a Pulitzer Prize, she also addressed Stratten’s...

    Lost in the imbroglio over the NFL’s disrespect for our national anthem is the irony of the original impetus for Colin Kaepernick’s antics. New data shows there is a growing epidemic of violent crime in America, which is likely the result of dissuading police from proactive law enforcement work. Sadly, the biggest victims of this rebounding epidemic are African Americans. Where is the protest or outrage over violent crime in inner cities rather than the police response to it (or lack thereof)? It’s hard to overstate the importance of yesterday’s release of crime data from the FBI showing a second...

    MSNBC has refused to tell its viewers that the gunman in the Tennessee church shooting is a Sudanese immigrant, instead identifying him as being from Tennessee. In the seven mentions of the shooter’s identity on the network from Sunday afternoon when the shooting occurred until Monday morning, MSNBC never mentioned his status as an immigrant. They did share his name, age, photo, and his residence in Murfreesboro, TN. 25-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson is originally from Khartoum, Sudan and legally immigrated to the United States in the 1990s. Samson attended high school in Tennessee. (RELATED: Tennessee Church Shooting Suspect Is A...
