UPDATED 2:50 p.m. with taped testimony from Joyce Meyer.

WATERLOO • Televangelist Joyce Meyer testified this afernoon by pre-recorded video deposition in Christopher Coleman's murder trial that he could have lost his job as her bodyguard if he had an adulterous affair.

Woman suspected of murder apprehended, child found safe Read more: The Williamson Daily News - Woman suspected of murder apprehended child found safe

Crystal Gale Clark (aka Crystal Siegler) was apprehended in Jackson, Tenn., this morning by United States Marshals and the FBI. Authorities also found her daughter, 13-month-old Chloe Clark, unharmed.

Siegler is suspected of murdering her husband, David Matthew Clark, on April 25. Police found David Clark in his home, shot to death, when a neighbor found his body. He was shot twice, though authorities won’t say where in his body he was shot at.

“Siegler ran out of money and contacted a family member, letting them know where she was,” Sgt. Joe Smith of the Mingo County Sheriff’s Department said. “The family member then contacted police. She didn’t exactly turn herself in.”

The police ran the number where Siegler had called her family member from and identified it as a hotel in Jackson, Smith said. The Sheriff’s Department then contacted United States Marshals and the FBI who apprehended Siegler in her hotel room.

“There was an altercation,” Smith said, “She was uncooperative with police.”

Hailey's Mom Won't Comment About Alleged Contact with Suspect

Billie Jean Dunn tries to live normally as the search continues for her 13-year-old daughter, Hailey, missing since Dec. 28.

Billie Jean was busy Wednesday afternoon at her home in Colorado City sorting posters to be handed out to volunteers Saturday. In turn, these volunteers will be spanning out in West Texas attaching the posters to “anything they can attach them to.”

“The posters will be given out early Saturday at McDonald’s in Snyder, Sweetwater, Big Spring, Midland and Odessa,” the mother said.

But these events are not held every day, and she has to find some way to cope, to make the time pass as her hope continues that Hailey will be found safe – and soon.

“I’ve been spending a lot more time with my family, especially my son. He’s been staying at my brother’s house in Snyder, but staying over here a little bit more.

“I’ve also been receiving a lot of continued support from a few good friends that have been here from the beginning. They’ve been really good to me and helping me come up with ideas to keep Hailey’s face out there.”

Couple Convicted In Baby's Starvation Death

CINCINNATI -- A judge found a couple guilty of murder Friday in the starvation death of their infant daughter.

Judge Nadine Allen convicted Jill Hull and Gary West on two counts of murder – one for knowingly inflicting starvation and dehydration and the other for recklessly refusing to provide medical treatment that would have saved their child's life.

Rachel West was only 11 weeks old when she was discovered unconscious and suffering from a respiratory condition Nov. 28, 2008, at her family's Sayler Park home.

An autopsy showed the child had no food at all inside her digestive tract when she died, but investigators found baby formula inside the house.

Hailey Dunn: Law Enforcement, Key Players Keeping Quiet

This week marks four months since 13-year-old Hailey Dunn vanished. She was last seen at her home in Colorado City on Dec. 27, and hundreds of leads have turned up empty.

Day after day, KTAB News get calls and emails asking for updates on the investigation. But the truth is, updates are hard to come by these days.

Hailey's father, Clint Dunn, her mother, Billie Dunn, and her mother's boyfriend and only named suspect, Shawn Adkins, all declined our interview requests.

Colorado City City Manager Pete Kampfer, who has been a spokesman for the investigation since the beginning, as well as Mitchell County Sheriff Patrick Toombs and Mitchell County District Attorney Ann Reed all refused an on camera interview to discuss where the investigation sits today.

Even with the major players in the case remaining tight lipped, we wanted to try and answer the question so many people still have – is their hope for Hailey?

Worthless Charges dropped against Adam Baker


By RICHARD GOULD

He’s back in court May 4 on felony charges

NEWTON - Four of Adam Baker’s criminal charges were dropped Friday. He was in District Court to answer to four misdemeanor charges of worthless checks written to grocery stores.

When Baker’s case was called, Assistant District Attorney Heather Reedy asked if there were any witnesses in the courtroom to be heard.

When no one answered, she turned and spoke to District Court Judge Amy Sigmon.

“The state does not have the witnesses to prosecute these charges,” Reedy said.

She dismissed the charges, and Baker was allowed to leave the courtroom.

As he left, several reporters asked if he had anything to say.

“Not right now,” was his only answer.

Baker’s attorney, Mark Killian, said Baker had paid restitution to Lowes Foods on the four worthless checks he’d written worth a total of $244.

Chris Coleman - Naked Photos and the Admission of an Affair

April 27, 2011 8:33 PM
by Carol Daniel and BND reporter Beth Hundsdorfer
The Chris Coleman triple murder trial enters it’s fourth day Thursday.  Wednesday, jurors heard Coleman admit to a sexual relationship with Tara Lintz, his wife’s best friend in high school and to sending her nude photos of himself on a company cell phone that belonged to Joyce Meyer Ministries.   
Belleville News Democrat reporter Beth Hundsdorfer reports, during the police interrogation video, jurors saw Coleman initially portray Lintz as a family friend, calling her his wife’s number one Facebook fan.  Coleman said that he and Sheri had been having marital problems and he had been talking to Tara a lot lately.  He said that Sheri Coleman could get a little bit jealous at times. 
It was only after Columbia Police detective Justin Barlow and Illinois State Police Sgt. Dave Bivens told Coleman that Lintz, who lives in Florida, told St. Petersburg homicide detectives that the pair were having an affair and that Chris Coleman had sent nude photos of himself to Lintz on his cell phone, that he admitted to a sexual relationship with her.

Cold Cases: Missing on the Grand Strand

Thursday, Apr. 28, 2011
By Ian Anderson - For Weekly Surge
This week marks the two-year anniversary of 17-year-old vacationer Brittanee Drexel's disappearance from Myrtle Beach. Her disappearance has been picked up by national media outlets and has frequently been profiled by cable news lawyer-turned-talking-head Nancy Grace and was also featured in the Season 2 premier of "Disappeared" a program on the digital cable network Investigation Discovery.
Yet, if you listen to the news coverage you would think that this was the first person to ever disappear without a trace on the Grand Strand. This is not the case. Myrtle Beach is a pretty easy place to disappear from. We have a transient population, a beach that attracts many tourists, and a high number of homeless people that are difficult to track. There are plenty of cracks to fall into, whether you want to disappear or if someone makes you disappear. Presently, there are eight open, unsolved missing persons cases in Myrtle Beach and Horry County police jurisdictions.
The most famous case right now, of course, is the one of Drexel who went missing on April 25, 2009 from the Blue Water Motel in Myrtle Beach. Drexel, form Rochester, N.Y., came to the beach with her friends without the permission of her mother. They had a hotel room at the Bar Harbor resort in Myrtle Beach. The last known contact anyone had with her was a friend that she met at approximately 8 p.m. April 25, 2009. There is security footage of her walking out of the Blue Water Motel when she was supposed to be returning to the Bar Harbor. She never made it there and no one has heard from her since.

Madeleine McCann petition nears 50,000-signature milestone

Thursday, April 28, 2011, 09:30
By dan martin
An online petition calling for a full review of the evidence surrounding Madeleine McCann's disappearance is nearing the 50,000-signature milestone.
Kate and Gerry McCann launched the petition in November because they felt the authorities had given up searching for their daughter, who went missing in Portugal four years ago.
The McCanns, from Rothley, had intended to present the petition to the Portuguese and British governments when 50,000 people had backed them.
Now, however, with the figure standing at nearly 48,800 names and the anniversary of her disappearance approaching, they have decided to let it run.
Their spokesman, Clarence Mitchell, said: "It was always loosely the intention to present it at 50,000 and, although it will be done soon, it will continue for the time being.

Published by: By Laura Jones
THE FAMILY of a missing cruise ship worker from Chester will gather for another vigil this weekend.

Youth activities worker Rebecca Coriam, from Guilden Sutton, Chester, went missing more than five weeks ago off the coast of Mexico while on board the Disney Wonder Cruise liner.
 
Following local, national and international appeals for the 24-year-old’s safe return, Rebecca has since been listed as ‘missing at sea’.
 
Her family, also from Guilden Sutton, have organised a number of vigils in her honour and will hold a balloon release at Chester Racecourse on Monday, May 2.
 
Her uncle John Jennings said the family have held the vigils in the hope that the balloons may guide Rebecca, or Bex as she is fondly known, home to Chester.
 
Meanwhile, the Royal Bahamian Police Force have continued to carry out their investigations into the former Chester Catholic High School pupil’s disappearance.
Rebecca was last seen on March 21, after boarding a ship in Los Angeles and the alarm was raised the following morning at 9am when she failed to turn up for a shift.
