Del. Pedophile Case Evidence Questioned

Amplify’d from

The lead investigator in the case of accused pedophile pediatrician Earl Bradley says a building from which key evidence was seized was properly identified in a search warrant being challenged by defense attorneys.

Delaware State Police Det. Thomas Elliott testified Tuesday that the search warrant for Bradley's former office in Lewes specified a white outbuilding in which computer drives allegedly containing videos of Bradley sexually assaulting his patients were found.

Elliott says the white outbuilding mentioned in the warrant is what he intended for investigators to search, even though its facade is painted in a stark black-and-white checkerboard pattern.

Attorneys for Bradley contend the search warrant referred to another building, and that the computer files should not be admitted as evidence.

ST. GEORGE, SC (WCSC) - A mother and her boyfriend are in jail after police discovered two children living in filthy conditions.
St. George police arrested 35-year-old Theresa Bowers and 37-year-old Benjamin Ahl of 313 South Parler Avenue and charged them with unlawful neglect of a child last Friday.
According to police, they received a complaint that Bowers' two children were living in filthy conditions. Bowers has an 8-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy. The house they were living in is rented by Ahl and the children belong to Bowers.
Police found cat feces where the children were sleeping and said the house was unsanitary inside and out. Police also found big black ants on the floor inside and trash everywhere. There were used feminine products on the window ledges in the kitchen and no running water in he house.
"You could smell odor coming from the residence before the door was even open," said St. George Police Lt. Eric Bonnette.
Theresa Bowers, left, and Benjamin Ahl
In the kitchen, police found dirty dishes with growth on them. The house did not have air conditioning and only a small fan was discovered. Big bags of trash were in plain site on the porch and in the yard.
"The only explanation that was given at the time was that they were trying," Bonnette said.
A woman who owns a nearby dog grooming business was shown the pictures of the inside of the house and she had this to say.
"It's sad, it's horrible," Michelle Mendoza said. "I saw the children, just pitiful, makes you want to cry."
The children have been placed in emergency protective custody with the South Carolina Department of Social Services.

GREAT BEND, Kan. (CBS/KWCH) Kansas Attorney General Steve Six told reporters outside a District Court Monday that he is "confident murder charges will be filed," in the tragic death of Kansas teenager Alicia DeBolt, according to The Wichita Eagle.

Six's comments came shortly after a hearing for 36-year-old Adam Longoria, who is a "person of interest" in the murder of the14-year-old whose body was found severely burned Aug. 24 in an asphalt plant in central Kansas.

Alicia DeBolt Update: Attorney General "Confident" Charges Will Be Filed

The hearing was not directly related to the DeBolt murder, but instead stemmed from Longoria's alleged theft of a vehicle last Friday, the morning following a police search of Longoria's house.

Longoria was charged with one count of Vehicle Burglary and one count of Theft of property worth at least $1,000 but less than $25,000 in connection with a 2002 white Ford Explorer that was reported stolen from Venture Corporation, the asphalt plant where DeBolt's body was found, according to CBS affiliate KWCH

Longoria, also known as "Rocco," was taken into custody Friday morning after Kansas Highway Patrol issued a statewide alert for his arrest.

The judge set his bond at $150,000, reports KWCH.

Members of DeBolt's family were in the courtroom.

Longoria has not been charged or named a suspect in connection with DeBolt's murder, but investigators continue "pursue all leads," according to Six, who told reporters Monday that he believed murder charges would be filed "in the not too distant future," reports The Wichita Eagle.

Another hearing is scheduled for Sept. 7.


Driver Leads Cops on Chase With Dead Body As Passenger

Victim's family: She was his ex-girlfriend; she dismissed his deadly threats

RIDGEFIELD, N.J. (WPIX) - A murder suspect is in the hospital after he tried to commit suicide after killing his ex-girlfriend, according to Ridgefield, New Jersey police. But it was the end of a story that even veteran cops call bizarre.

They cornered their suspect, 30 year-old David Goodell, after a collision and car chase. It ended on a short street that has seen a high-profile murder in the past, and also ended with a grisly discovery that surprised investigators.

Police say they got calls from Ridgefield residents Monday afternoon saying that a man was bleeding profusely in the parking lot of Ridgefield Park High School.

When police arrived to investigate, they say Goodell jumped into his car and rammed it into a police cruiser. Police say he then led them on a car chase that ended about a mile-and-a-half away on Elizabeth Street, a two-block dead-end residential cul-de-sac.

There, cops were able to get Goodell to come out of the car and into an ambulance, which transported the badly bleeding man to Hackensack University Medical Center for treatment for box cutter slashes to his wrists. He had apparently tried to commit suicide.

When police went to search Goodell's car, they got a big shock. The body of his ex-girlfriend, 21 year-old Viviana Tulli, was in the passenger's seat. She had been strangled, and details as to how long her body had been there and how long she had been dead have not yet been released.

"She was my baby, my baby, my princess," Tulli's mother, Luz, said exclusively to PIX 11 News.

A friend who had come to the Tulli's home in Garfield to comfort the family told PIX 11 News that Viviana was very popular and very trusting. She said that Goodell told Tulli that he would kill her, but Viviana did not believe him.

The small street where the car chase ended has seen similar tragedy in the past.

In September 1999, 39-year-old Gladys Ricart was murdered in a home on Elizabeth Street on her wedding day. She was wearing her bridal gown and a tiara and was taking pictures with her family when her ex-boyfriend, Augustin Garcia, burst into her home and unloaded a .38-caliber revolver into her.

Garcia is serving a sentence of life in prison for the murder that took place in a home just 100 yards from where police arrested David Goodell.

Goodell now faces a murder charge -- the same charge for which Augustin Garcia was convicted. The Bergen County prosecutor is expected to file other felony charges against Goodell after he is released from the hospital.,0,3273830.story

Parents plead guilty to hog-tying son in Ohio

Associated Press - August 30, 2010 5:15 PM ET

CLEVELAND (AP) - The parents of a Cleveland boy have pleaded guilty to hog-tying and duct-taping him to a coffee table on a nightly basis for months.

Thirty-7-year-old Andreia Huffman and 32-year-old Jason Dunikowski of Cleveland pleaded guilty Monday to a 196-count indictment. Charges include 180 kidnapping counts each, child endangering and, against the mother, felonious assault.

The prosecutor has recommended a 17-year sentence for the mother and 15 years for the father.

Along with the nightly confinement, the couple admitted punishing the 8-year-old boy for six months by forcing him to stand all day facing a wall and smacking the back of his head until his nose broke.

His 15-year-old brother called police in April.

Malnourished boy found in attic is recovering well

By: Marissa Cleaver

DE SOTO, Kansas - A 6-year-old boy found malnourished and filthy in the attic of a De Soto, Kansas, home is recovering.

The grandparents of 6-year-old Giovanni called the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday to check on the welfare of the boy.

They hadn’t seen him in months.

When investigators arrived at the home in the 8200 block of Center Drive the boys’ mother 26-year-old Rachel Perez told them he wasn’t there.

She was arrested on an outstanding traffic warrant.

Deputies went back to the duplex later that evening. That is when they found Giovanni in the attic.

"There was so much feces everywhere, the crib was full of feces. It was just a total mess in there." He says the attic was no different,” said the property owner Tom Roberson.

The boy weighed about 20 pounds. He was taken to Children’s Mercy Hospital.

“The best news of the day is Giovanni is doing better. He seems to be recovering and everybody is thankful for that,” says Sarah Swain an attorney for the grandparents.

Now this monster of a mother, who is also 5 months pregnant, is asking the judge to lower her bond. She would like it to be lowered from $250,000 to $5000 or lower, due to the fact that she is having health issues that will only be made worse by being held in jail. Cry me a river!! I'm sure the jail will give her 3 square meals a day and then some...Much better treatment than she gave helpless little Giovanni as he lay in the hot and dirty attic crawl-space covered in feces.

I should also mention that he is a 6 year old boy, who only weighed 20 pounds when officers found him. His little bones visible after months or years of neglect and abuse at the hands of his own mother. I hope this woman is never allowed to regain custody, or even visitation of ANY of her children, including the one she is carrying.

Judge Denied Woman's Injunction; Pair Found Dead In Motel

POSTED: 8:01 am EDT August 31, 2010
UPDATED: 8:35 am EDT August 31, 2010

Authorities discovered the bodies of a missing Volusia County woman and her ex-boyfriend in a Port Orange hotel room in Monday, but the woman's family says she tried to protect herself against him.
The Port Orange Police Department said that the bodies of 22-year-old Loni “Amber” Turner and her ex-boyfriend, Erin Ross, were found at the Town & Country Motel on South Ridgewood Avenue.

Police said Ross had been stalking and harassing her. Police said Ross threatened Turner's life.

Recently a judge denied a temporary injunction that Turner filed against Ross.

"If you don't want to be around someone, you shouldn't have to be around them," Turner's brother Codey said. "It's sad that it took a wonderful person's life to realize this. Maybe they will get it right next time."

A court date was set for Sept. 3, but some said that notification could have put Turner in danger.

"It leaves the victim incredibly vulnerable for 14 days," Carol Wick of Harbor House said.

Turner had not been seen since Sunday morning. Authorities said she checked into the motel on Saturday.

Friends of Turner from the hair school she attended were seen crying when they arrived at the motel.

Motel guests told WESH 2 News on Monday they heard gunfire on Sunday night, but it was not reported to the motel’s manager until the next morning.Read more at

Greenwich -- Nearly three years after Jaliek Rainwalker disappeared a special New York State Police dive team is planning to search for the 12 year old Greenwich boy.

On Thursday, divers will descend into a section of the Battenkill River in Middle Falls.

Divers have previously searched other portions of the river but Cambridge-Greenwich Police Chief George Bell says water levels have been too high in the past to search the Middle Falls section of the river.

Chief Bell says the river became a place of interest early in the investigation following discussions with Jaliek's adoptive father Stephen Kerr.

Bell says Jaliek's adoptive parents are no longer participating in the police investigation.

Jaliek Rainwalker was reported missing on November 2nd, 2007.


Officials Drain Ponds As Search Continues for Possible Body

Monday was day seven in the search for a possible body in southeastern Johnson County. The search is just a few miles from Belton High School, where 17-year-old Kara Kopetsky was last seen almost three-and-a-half years ago.

Acting on a tip from the public, Sheriff's Deputies and other agencies have been searching a 10-acre area near a vacant building since Tuesday.

"It does make your heart stop and skip a beat," Kara Kopetsky's mother Rhonda Beckford said. "It makes you wonder if it is Kara."

Beckford still doesn't know what happened to her daughter back on May 4, 2007. She can't help but to wonder if this latest search will help answer any questions.

"You get up in the morning and it's the same question every day: Where is Kara," she said.

Johnson County Sheriff's Deputies had to clear the area of weeds and build make-shift roads before they could even start the search.

Crews spent the week searching a building and the wooded area around it. On Monday, two concrete ponds on the property were being drained and searched.

"Anytime you hear on the news that they're searching for a body, that they got a tip that there's a body, of course it goes through your mind, especially since it's so close. It could possibly be Kara," Beckford said.

Although Kara Kopetsky vanished more than three years ago, family and friends continue to hold out hope that they will soon find the answers they've been so desperately searching for.

There is currently an $80,000 reward for any information leading to the whereabouts of Kara Kopetsky.

By Jack Kuenzie -
ORANGEBURG, SC (WIS) - The woman accused of killing two of her young children continues to sit in jail while awaiting a bond hearing.
Shaquan Duley's attorney, Carl Grant, says he has filed a request for all police reports, photos, and evidence.
Shaquan Duley's first court appearance
While we await the defense's next move, a person familiar with the case is talking about what could happen next.
Columbia defense attorney Hemphill Pride says heavy publicity about the case might be a factor in deciding whether to petition the court for bond.
"I think the biggest reason that a lawyer would not want to have a bond hearing is where the case has a horrid kind of facts involved as this case does," said Pride. "You don't want to get the media, so you try and stay away from the media as much as possible until you get to trial."
Grant says it could be a month or more before Duley asks for bail. That's if she asks at all. She has made one brief court appearance and Grant has yet to take the next step in requesting a bond hearing. Grant declined to comment on camera.
Orangeburg County's sheriff has said Duley confessed to the killings.
Grant says he wants to see that statement and other evidence from the Orangeburg area solicitor before deciding how to proceed. That's not surprising, according to Pride.
"I'm certain that he wants to examine that because in a bond hearing that's one thing the judge will take under consideration," said Pride. "I'm certain that Mr. Grant will want to be in a position that he can respond."
A bond hearing would primarily center on questions about whether Duley is a flight risk, a danger to the community, or has any prior convictions.

JEFFERSON CITY, MO (AP) - A prosecutor wants to conduct DNA testing on a knife and clothing taken as evidence in the slaying of a 9-year-old girl near Jefferson City.
Court documents released Monday in the murder case against 16-year-old Alyssa Bustamante reveal authorities seized the knife and jeans as evidence in last October's slaying of Elizabeth Olten.
Bustamante's attorneys said Monday that they could not say whether the evidence was taken from their client. Bustamante has pleaded not guilty.
Documents reveal a court hearing was held Aug. 5 by telephone to discuss the DNA testing. Prosecutors want to do tests even though they would consume the full sample, leaving nothing for defense attorneys to independently test.

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- Judge Belvin Perry won’t budge when it comes to the timeline on Casey Anthony’s trial.
Perry said at a status hearing on Monday he would not push back the trial from its scheduled start date in May of next year.
He said if the two sides could not share information with each other and get deposition schedules in sync, he would set schedules himself.
“I would not want me setting your depositions,” he said. “I’ve been known to do some weird things like working on Saturday.”
After the status hearing, WESH 2 attended what was supposed to be a routine scheduling hearing between the defense, prosecution and Texas Equusearch attorney Mark NeJame.
Newly appointed Magistrate James Glatt set Oct. 4 and 5 for dates when the defense will get to look at Equeesearch records.
Anthony defense attorney Jose Baez reiterated allegations at the hearing that NeJame is only representing Equusearch for media coverage.
NeJame then told Cheney Mason, another member of the Anthony defense team, that Baez is a liar and incompetent.
“I believe your partner is not only a liar but incompetent,” NeJame said to Mason. “I'm going to say this in light of what he said to me -- he made up complete and total fabrications.”

A jury was seated late this afternoon in the case against an Orange County mother accused of starving one of her infant twins to death.

Lauren Gress, 24, faces charges of aggravated manslaughter of a child and child neglect.

Gress was arrested in March 2009 after the Orange-Osceola Medical Examiner's Office determined that her 4-month-old daughter, Brianna Morges-Gress, died of malnutrition and dehydration.

Brianna found dead Nov. 16, 2008 and was about the same size she was at 2 weeks. Her death was ruled a homicide.

Brianna and her twin brother, Edwin Jr., weren't fed or handled for 14 hours before Brianna died, police said earlier.

However, their older sisters, then ages 2 and 3, showed no signs of malnutrition and were in good health, officials said last year.

Jurors were questioned and selected throughout the day. At about 4 p.m., Orange County Circuit Judge Tim Shea began giving the jury instructions.


Judge sets $150K bond for Adam Longoria

Adam Longoria appeared in a Great Bend courtroom Monday morning. He is charged with charged with one count of Vehicle Burglary and one count of Theft of property worth at least $1,000 but less than $25,000.
Longoria told the judge he understands the charges against him. He told the judge he plans to hire an attorney. Another hearing is scheduled for September 7.

Longoria is also a person of interest in the investigation into the disappearance and murder of 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt. He has not been charged or named a suspect in connection with that case. However, investigators searched his home last Thursday.

Members of DeBolt's family were in the courtroom.

Attorney General Steve Six argued Longoria's criminal history and history of not showing up for court cases means she shouldn't receive bond or the bond should be a significant amount.

Before stealing the vehicle, Six says Longoria went to post office and mailed many of his belongings to an address in Texas. “I believe that the defendant is in a desperate state of mind, and therefore, there’s a risk to the community if he’s released," said Six to the court.

Longoria said the belongings mailed to Texas were two cowboy hats and a pair of pants. He also says he left Great Bend to stay with a friend because his house had been searched and there were cameras outside. He says he had a duffel bag with him with just a couple of changes of clothes in it.

Six said Longoria also has a warrant out for his arrest from Marion, North Carolina, for allegedly calling in threats to an elementary school.

Six asked that bond be set in the amount of $150,000 and the judge agreed. The judge agreed that Longoria is a flight risk. The judges said if Longoria tries to make bond, there will be another hearing.

The thirty-six year-old Longoria, also known as “Rocco”, was taken into custody Friday morning. He was caught by the Kansas Highway Patrol on I-70 near mile marker 233 west of Salina.

Longoria was driving a 2002 white Ford Explorer which was reported stolen from Venture Corporation near Great Bend early Friday morning. That's the same company that owns the property where DeBolt's badly burned body was
found last week.

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice says Longoria has done time on nine charges there since 1991. Those include burglary, forgery, credit card abuse,
escape from prison and evading arrest. He was released May 25 after completing a seven-year sentence for aggravated robbery.

DeBolt was last seen heading to a party a week ago Saturday.Read more at
