Trial Begins For Hammond Cop Charged With Killing Ex-Girlfriend


Indiana – A Porter County jury stared at graphic photos Wednesday showing how a Portage woman was found shot dead with blood pooled in the carpet around her in 2015.

“So, how do we get to this place where she dies so violently?” asked prosecuting attorney Matthew Frost.

Frost turned and pointed to Kevin Campbell, 33, sitting in a suit with his defense attorneys at the Porter County courthouse in Valparaiso.

“We get to this place because the man sitting at the end of this table, Kevin A. Campbell, murdered her,” Frost said.

Attorneys presented opening arguments Wednesday after seating a jury Tuesday in Campbell’s murder trial stemming from the death Tiara Thomas, Campbell’s ex-girlfriend and his children’s mother.

Thomas, 30, was found shot Nov. 18, 2015, in the bedroom of her Portage apartment she shared with her fiance in the Park Place apartment complex.

Although he couldn’t see the screen, Campbell, a former Hammond police officer, wiped his eyes with a tissue as Frost showed Thomas’ autopsy photos during opening statements. When the courtroom cleared during a morning break, he cried as he sat alone at the defense table.

Susan Marie Severtson, one of Campbell’s attorneys, argued that there was a lack of eyewitness and scientific evidence in the case. No DNA evidence or fingerprints matching Campbell were found at Thomas’ apartment, she said.

At the end of the trial, Svertson argued, “You will not know who in fact killed Tiara Thomas.”

Thomas and Campbell had three children together, but the “relationship fell apart,” Frost said. It was a “contentious breakup,” and before Thomas died, Campbell’s child support “expanded exponentially,” he said.

When Campbell was arrested, Portage police said there may have been a financial motive involved, as Campbell’s vehicle had been repossessed, he had voice mails from creditors and his bank account balance was $7.58, according to court records.

“It was ruining his life,” Frost said.

Svertson countered that didn’t amount to motive. Thomas was Campbell’s “first love” and the two had known each other since elementary school, she said.

“He was happy to emotionally and financially support his children,” Svertson said.

Police questioned Marqtell Robinson, Thomas’ fiance who she lived with, but Robinson’s alibi that he had worked a midnight shift before he found her dead at 7 a.m. on Nov. 18, 2015, checked out, according to testimony from Ted Uzelac, Portage police assistant chief.

“He did not murder Tiara Thomas,” Frost said.

David Duttlinger, a Portage Fire Department paramedic, said he couldn’t say exactly when Thomas had been shot, but she wasn’t bleeding much when he arrived at the apartment, he said. The responding officers and paramedic said none of them smelled gunpowder in the apartment.

After questioning neighbors at the apartment complex, no one said they heard or saw anything, the officers testified.

Campbell’s trial continues Thursday and is expected to run three days a week for the next few weeks, attorneys said

Campbell is being held at Porter County Jail without bond.

15yo Afghan boy arrested after stabbing to death German ex-girlfriend

Home » Crimes, Eurabia, Europe, Multiculturalism » 15yo Afghan boy arrested after stabbing to death German ex-girlfriend



 


A 15-year-old Afghan boy is reportedly being held by police on suspicion of stabbing his ex-girlfriend to death during an argument in a grocery store in Germany. Well just as we said in our previous article, Germany does deserve to be on that map as a red state… this story only goes to prove our point among many other similar stories. Why would a German girl even date a brown Muslim Arab? Why would her parents allow her? Why date at such a young age? Why is that Arab even in Germany? So many questions here… WHY WHY WHY? Had her parents read that article and listened to us, they would have had their daughter alive today…

The attack took place at around 3:20pm local time in a grocery store in Kandel, a town in Rhineland-Palatinate on the German-French border, according to the newspaper Die Rhinepflatz. The boy was apprehended by passersby and held until police arrived at the scene.

The victim, a German national who was said to have broken off a months-long relationship with the accused earlier this month, reportedly entered the store along with a companion. The girl was then attacked with a kitchen knife. She died in hospital Wednesday afternoon.

Prosecutor Angelika Moehlig said that the unidentified suspect, who has been in Germany since April 2016, is being kept in custody on suspicion of manslaughter. The Associated Press reports that while the motive is not yet known, the girl’s parents filed a complaint against the accused on December 15 alleging slander and threats. RT.com has contacted the local prosecutor for comment.

'Neo-Nazi' Teen Charged With Killing Girlfriend's Parents After They Reported Him

A 17-year-old Virginia teen was charged with two counts of murder Saturday after he allegedly murdered his girlfriend’s parents. 

Scott Fricker, 48, and his wife Buckley Kuhn-Fricker, 43, were shot and killed in their home in Reston, Virginia, on Friday according to Fairfax County police. The teenager, who is not named due to his minor status, shot the Frickers after getting into their home. Police indicate that the teen also suffered from a self-inflicted gunshot wound and is currently in critical condition. 

The teen was dating the Frickers’ teenage daughter, but the parents pushed the young couple to break up. Kuhn-Fricker’s mother, Janet Kuhn, told ABC 7 that her daughter tried to separate the teens because they considered the boy to be dangerous and a white supremacist.

“They kept a tight eye on her and they disapproved of all the time she was spending with him, hours on the phone,” Kuhn told ABC.

Kuhn-Fricker alerted the principal of the teen’s high school to concerning social media posts from the boy and called him an “outspoken Neo-Nazi” in messages to friends, the Washington Post reports. She flagged social media posts where the boy lauded Hitler, supported Nazi book burnings and called for a “white revolution,” according the Post. 

“I would feel a little bad reporting him if his online access was to basically be a normal teen, but he is a monster, and I have no pity for people like that,” Kuhn-Fricker wrote in an email obtained by the Post. “He made these choices. He is spreading hate.”

After staging an intervention, the family believed their daughter had come to the realization that a breakup was in her best interest. But around 5 a.m. on Friday morning, Kuhn-Fricker and Fricker heard a noise and discovered the teenage boy in their daughter’s bedroom. The teen shot and killed the parents before inflicting a wound on himself, but none of the other four family members in the house were injured. 

The unnamed teen is under police guard and will be served his warrants depending on his medical condition, police say.

Philando Castile‘s Girlfriend Settles With St. Anthony For $800,000


The city of St. Anthony has agreed to a second legal settlement over the fatal shooting of Philando Castile by one of its police officers. And this time, with its insurance coverage all but used up, any settlement would largely come from city coffers.

The St. Anthony City Council on Tuesday night voted to pay $675,000 to settle legal claims brought by Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, and her daughter. The pair was in the car with Castile when he was shot to death during a traffic stop by then-St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez on July 6, 2016.

Before the unanimous vote to approve the settlement, Mayor Jerry Faust said he hoped it would “open the door to continued healing in our community.”

“If we don’t approve this and we go ahead with litigation, it would just reopen the whole case again and bring heartache to everyone involved,” Faust said. “It is best to settle.”

The council’s resolution approving the settlement said, in part, that it resolves any claims related to the alleged detention of and use of force against Reynolds and her daughter, and any claims of racial discrimination or emotional distress.

“While no amount of money can change what happened, bring Philando back, or erase the pain that my daughter and I continue to suffer,” Reynolds said in a statement to WCCO, “I do hope that closing this chapter will allow us to get our lives back and move forward.”

St. Anthony has a $3 million “per occurrence” cap on its insurance policy covering payments like this one through the League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust, but a settlement with Castile’s family in June used up $2.995 million of that.

Pitching the question – Houston Astros player proposes to girlfriend after World Series win

Moments after the Astros clinched the World Series with a 5-1 victory in Game 7 over LA Dodgers at Dodgers Stadium, Puerto Rican-born shortstop Correa wasted no time hitting his proposal out of the park.

In a post-game interview, the 23-year old told Fox Sports, “Right now I’m about to take another big step in my life,” before reaching into his back pocket for the ring. “Daniella Rodriguez, you make me the happiest man in the world, will you marry me?”

Rings on rings! 💍💍

Former Miss Texas USA Rodriguez clasped her hands around her mouth in shock and, when Correa dropped down on one knee, she doubled over and wailed before breaking through the crowd barrier to plant a huge kiss on the face of her new fiancé.

Correa later revealed that his mother had urged him to pop the question to Rodriguez weeks earlier, but the younger Correa had gambled on getting down on one knee only when the Astros capped off their season with World Series success.

Rodriguez said she still had no idea her boyfriend of over a year was planning the shock proposal, despite his constant requests for her to be by his side during the interview.

“Everyone knew besides me,” Rodriguez said, AP reported. “I’m really good at finding stuff out. Every time I had a surprise birthday party, I would always find out. So I was literally in just the complete dark about this. Everyone knew but me.

“He had been so focused on the game,” Rodriguez added. “All he ever talked about was winning the World Series, so I never really thought something like this would be on his mind, so when it all went down, I was just shocked.”

Rebecca: Mm, no, no, no, tell me, please.

Nathaniel: Well, okay. You said you wanted to ruin him, right?

Florida Deputy’s Son Steals Patrol Car, Pulls Ex-Girlfriend Over, Orders her New Boyfriend Out of Car, then Robs him


One day after a Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputy shot his ex-girlfriend in the back before turning the gun on himself, the son of another deputy stole his father’s patrol car and pulled his ex-girlfriend over.

Christopher Combs, 22, who is a paid cadet with the sheriff’s office, then ordered her new boyfriend to step out of the car via intercom, directing him to lay on the ground and empty his pockets.

The victim, who said he felt a metal object pressed against his head, said he robbed of his personal belongings, according to WPTV.

He also said Combs was laughing.

Combs, the son of Palm Beach Sheriff’s Lieutenant David Combs, was arrested nine hours later after the department tracked the car down through its GPS and notified Broward County sheriff’s deputies.

Combs was initially jailed on a $300,000 bond on four felony charges, but was released on a $120,000 bond.

Combs said “he became upset and that was why he started messing with (the couple),” according to the arrest report.

The victim was under the impression that a passenger was in the unmarked patrol car, who pressed the metal object against his head, but deputies have not mentioned anything about another suspect.

According to Jose Lambiet of Gossip Extra, who broke the story this afternoon:

The younger Combs allegedly got in his father’s squad car Friday night near the family’s Boynton Beach home and decided to drive south.

Allegedly, Combs tailed a car where his old girlfriend was riding alongside her new boyfriend, and eventually pulled the couple over.

Eventually, PBSO tracked down the car with the GPS installed on its service radio. By then, the younger Combs was driving in Broward County, records show, and got pulled over by a BSO deputy at 10 a.m. Saturday in Pompano Beach.

On top of it, the younger Combs appeared to be drunk although he wasn’t charged with DUI.
Combs was charged with impersonating a law enforcement officer, robbery with a weapon, and two counts of false imprisonment.
