Former NBA Star Facing ‘Serious’ Prison Time

Former Celtics forward Glen Davis could spend up to two decades in jail.    

Davis was found guilty on Wednesday for his role in a scheme designed to defraud the NBA’s healthcare system. He faces up to 20 years in prison. 

Will Bynum, a former guard for the Pistons, was also found guilty in relation to this scheme. 

U.S. Attorney Damian Williams confirmed this news with a statement.

“A Manhattan jury convicted former NBA players Ronald Glen Davis and William Bynum of a criminal scheme to defraud the NBA Players’ Health and Benefit Welfare Plan,” the statement said. “While many of the more than 20 defendants convicted in this case were well-known NBA stars, their conduct was otherwise a typical fraudulent scheme designed to defraud the NBA’s health care plan and net the defendants over $5 million in illicit profits. Today’s conviction exemplifies that despite notoriety or success in sports or any other field, no one is exempt from criminal charges if they engage in fraud.”

According to MassLive, Davis will most likely receive a “far shorter jail term.”  

Davis played in the NBA from 2007-2015, averaging 8.0 points and 4.4 rebounds per game. The highlight of his career was winning a title with the Celtics in 2008.

Missing Woman Found in Boyfriend’s Refrigerator

The remains of a missing Texas woman last seen alive over a year ago were found stuffed in a refrigerator at her boyfriend’s home, and police documents reveal he had threatened to kill her on several occasions.

Chad Christopher Stevens, 41, has been charged with tampering with evidence with intent to impair a human corpse in connection with the death of 35-year-old Heather Louise Schwab, McKinney Police said.

Schwab was reported missing on June 28 by her mother in McKinney, a suburb of Dallas–Fort Worth.

On Nov. 12, during the execution of a search warrant on Stevens’ property, a body was found in a refrigerator wrapped in “copious amounts of plastic wrap” in the kitchen of the home, the arrest affidavit said. That body was later identified by the Collin County medical examiner’s office as Schwab.

During interviews with police, Stevens said Schwab died in his home on July 26, 2022 and he admitted to hiding her body in the fridge, claiming he didn’t know what to do with it, according to authorities.

A mother’s concern

Schwab’s mother, Tammra Schwab, filed a missing person report for her daughter on July 28, according to the arrest affidavit.

She told McKinney police that her daughter used narcotics and didn’t have a close relationship with her or other family members, but she hadn’t seen or spoken to her daughter in over a year.

She told authorities that she knew her daughter was in a relationship and living with Stevens for the past several years.

However, she told police that Stevens was abusive and allegedly assaulted Heather in the past. The mother said that on “multiple occasions in the past,” Schwab said to her ”Chad would kill her and hide her body somewhere,” the arrest affidavit said.

Tammra Schwab said she was in contact with a neighbor in the area of Stevens home who would give her updates on seeing Schwab, but told her they hadn’t seen Schwab in several months, leading Tammra to file the missing person report.

“Tammra stated that based on the past abuse and volatile relationship, she and other family members believed Chad may have killed her but were unable to provide any evidence of this,” a detective wrote in the affidavit.

A detective then interviewed Stevens, who said Schwab had left him roughly a year prior and he hadn’t seen or heard from her since. 

A daughter’s concerning call that opened the case

There were no leads in the case of finding Schwab until Nov. 3, when Tammra Schwab told police she heard from Stevens’ ex-wife who said Stevens had killed Heather Schwab and buried her in his backyard, the arrest affidavit said.

A detective called the ex-wife, who lived out of state in Oklahoma, and she said she was told the comments about Schwab from her daughter who spoke to Stevens the night prior, on Nov. 2. 

A detective went to Oklahoma to interview Stevens’ ex-wife and daughter on Nov. 4. The daughter told authorities she didn’t speak to her father often but called him on Nov. 2 to tell him she’s pregnant, but he responded by getting “very upset” and “threatened to kill the baby if she did not have an abortion and even threatened to kill her,” the affidavit said.

The daughter told him to not make such threatening statements because people might take him seriously, especially as his girlfriend, Heather Schwab, had gone missing.

Stevens asked her: “Oh so you think I killed her?” the affidavit said. He then started asking his daughter how she knew about his backyard, that it was allegedly dug up, and other things she had not brought up, the document said.

“Chad then made statements about how even if he had done something to Heather, he would only get 5 years in prison for hiding the body and he knew that because [he] had researched it,” the affidavit said.

Stevens allegedly asked his daughter “how she knew that Heather was in the backyard,” to which she replied that she didn’t know that information and Stevens replied “sarcastically,” “oh yeah, I definitely did that,” according to the filing.

The discovery

A detective got video and photographs of Stevens’ property which led investigators to note “several anomalies” in the backyard “that were of interest.”

Authorities also got in contact with another ex-girlfriend of Stevens who said he allegedly assaulted her in January. 

A search warrant was executed at Stevens’ home Nov. 12 and he was arrested on an assault warrant connected to his ex-girlfriend. 

During that search, authorities discovered the suspicious refrigerator wrapped in plastic wrap. The arrest affidavit noted that the sole entry to the kitchen had been “suspiciously closed and concealed from the remainder of the residence with a piece of sheet rock.” 

During interviews with McKinney police, Stevens said Schwab died at his home on July 26, 2022 and he didn’t know what to do so he put her body in the refrigerator, the affidavit said.

Detectives located a call for service on Aug. 17, 2022 involving Chad and Heather indicating a woman was waving a firearm and a man was screaming at the location. “Detectives believe it is possible that August could be a more accurate time frame of the incident,” the affidavit said.

Stevens told detectives that there had been “multiple physical altercations” between he and Schwab and he had “threatened to kill Heather” on several occasions. He told detectives that on several occasions, he thought about “carrying out the threat of killing Heather.”

The arrest affidavit noted that there were signs during that interview that Stevens “was not completely forthcoming.” 

Stevens is booked at the Collin County Detention Facility with bond set at $150,000. It’s not clear if he has an attorney. 

Man Crushes His 1-Year-Old Son After Being Shot

A witness told police they saw a vehicle pull up to the house and a “large volley of shots being fired into the neighboring residence.”

Police tried to make contact with anyone inside the home, but had no luck. They forced their way into the home and found a deceased adult male and an unresponsive infant.

The child was transported to a local hospital, where he later died, officials said.

The adult male was later identified as 31-year-old Kenneth Morrison and the infant was Tatee’k Morrison, KTVQ-TV reported.

At a press conference, Billings Police Chief Rich St. John said it “appears the male collapsed on the child.”

During an investigation, detectives were able to obtain a description of the suspect’s vehicle and found it at a residence in Billings. Another witness told investigators they saw people get out of the truck, run into the house and then flee into a neighboring house, authorities said.

Officers locked down the residences and the local SWAT team arrived. After five hours, ten people surrendered and were detained, officials said.

However, no arrests have been made in connection with the deaths of Kenneth and Tatee’k Morrison, authorities said.

Retired Attorney, 77, Kills Protesters During Climate Rally (Video)

A retired lawyer has shot dead two climate change protesters after they blocked the middle of the road, it has been reported.

Kenneth Darlington was dragged before judges after firing lethal shots at protesters in the town of La Espiga, Panama.

The 77-year-old was charged with murder and illegal possession of a gun, Eliecer Plicett – a lawyer for the two victims – said.

In footage from the incident, Darlington was seen emerging in front of photographers and TV crews and walking up to a roadblock on a section of the Pan-American Highway – around 55 miles west of Panama City.

According to TVN Noticias, the roadblock has been in place for three weeks as campaigners protest against the Panamanian government’s vow to run Central America’s biggest open-pit copper mine for another two decades.

Darlington told passengers in his car that “this ends today” before walking up to the activists.

He then took a handgun out of his pocket and started arguing with the protestors, waving the gun as he did.

In the background, one of the activists then says: “Why don’t you shoot?”

Darlington then opened fire.

His first victim, a teacher called Abdiel Diaz, struck the ground immediately after sustaining a shot.

The second – a fellow teacher named Ivan Rodriguez – was struck in the shoulder and pronounced dead on arrival at the Juan Vegas Mendez clinic.

In the hours after the incident social media footage showed Darlington being handcuffed and taken away.

Tom Hanks’ Son Punches Man Attempting to Break into Home

Tom Hanks’ son Chet Hanks punched a man attempting to break into his LA home.

The actor, 33, was forced to take swift action after he encountered the alleged burglar at around 3am on Monday.

He was able to subdue him while cops from L.A. County Sheriffs Office raced to the scene, where they attempted to slap handcuffs on the 42-year-old suspect. 

But a chaotic arrest ensued after he tried to fight back and he stumbled back onto a deputy, leaving them with a broken leg, TMZ reports.

Both the officer and the suspect were then taken to hospital for treatment.

After he was medically cleared, the individual was charged with burglary. Hanks escaped unscathed.

The case will now be handed over to the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office for filing considerations.

A statement from the police said: ‘In the commission of the burglary, Victim Hanks had to defend himself against the suspect and was able to subdue him until department personnel arrived on scene. The suspect was handcuffed and arrested at the location. 

‘While escorting the suspect to the patrol vehicle, a deputy did sustain an injury to his leg. 

‘The suspect and the deputy were transported to the local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. 

‘After the suspect’s treatment, he was transported and booked at Marina Del Rey Station for burglary and other violations are still being investigated. 

‘This is an on-going investigation, and the department is not in the position to provide further information at this moment.’

Aspiring rapper Hanks is no stranger to conflict. His latest feud has seen him in a war of words with comedian Eric Andre after the TV host called him out over his behavior when he appeared on an episode of his show.

Andre, 39, called him ‘dangerous and emotionally disturbed’ after and claimed he ‘stole a motorcycle’ while filming The Eric Andre show in an explosive interview with Rolling Stone. 

In retaliation, Hanks branded him a ‘f****** liar’ and a ‘p****’ in his own foul mouthed rant share which he shared online.

The aspiring rapper was also accused of physical and psychological abuse by his ex-girlfriend Kiana Parker who filed a civil suit against him.

The lawsuit stated that Hanks shoved and grabbed Parker, threatened to carry out a murder-suicide and branded her a ‘ghetto black b**** who wouldn’t be believed.

The abuse took place while Parker’s nine-year-old twins were at home, the filings claimed. 

Hanks’ lawyers branded the legal action a ‘shakedown’ and claimed they were in response to a suit filed by his client last month which claimed that Parker attacked him with a pot, leaving him with blood gushing from a wound on his forehead. 

Hanks is the son of legendary Hollywood actor Tom Hanks, 67, and his wife Rita Wilson. 

The YouTube host, born Chester Marlon Hanks, has been candid about how his previous struggles with addiction placed a strain on his relationship with them.

 During high school, he was sent to a wilderness therapy program for troubled teens.

Last year he was slammed by his father’s fans after he claimed he didn’t have a ‘strong male role model’ growing up to help deal with the pressure of having celebrity parents.

Son of Hollywood Agent Arrested for Shocking Murder

A Los Angeles man was arrested and charged with murder after a woman’s dismembered torso was found in a dumpster on Wednesday morning, according to local authorities.

Samuel Haskell, 35, was taken into custody around four hours after the gruesome discovery, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

At a press conference, Detective Efren Gutierrez said that investigators believe the torso may be Haskell’s wife, Mei Haskell, who is currently missing.

“If a murder suspect is dismembering a body, it’s to delay identification,” Gutierrez said Wednesday.

Also missing are Mei’s parents, Yanxiang Wang and Gaoshen Li, who lived with the couple and their three children in Tarzana, California.

“They would normally be home in these hours, and attempts have been made to contact them by phone, by cellphone and no answer. And the same with Mei. She is unaccounted for,” Gutierrez said.

Police said the children, all of elementary-school age, were located safely at school and are currently being cared for.

KTLA reports that on Tuesday night, someone reported seeing body parts in bags near the Haskell home, but police summoned to the scene found they were gone.

The next morning around 6:15 a.m., a homeless man looking through a commercial building’s trash for recyclables found the dismembered torso and called 911, police said.

Security video from that area reportedly led police back to the Haskell home, where they found blood and other evidence.

Haskell, who is being held on $2 million bail, is the son of Sam Haskell Sr., a Hollywood power broker who retired as an agent in 2005 after a blockbuster career representing A-listers like Dolly Parton, Whoopi Goldberg, George Clooney, Tony Danza, Ray Romano, and Kathie Lee Gifford, among others, according to TMZ.

Haskell Sr. is now the president of Magnolia Hill Productions, a company known for producing a number of Parton’s specials, including Dolly Parton’s Magic Mountain Christmas.

Man Threatened to Kill School Staff Over Diversity Training

A Tennessee man is facing federal charges after becoming incensed over a diversity training video reportedly shown to school staff in Minnesota, according to a criminal complaint unsealed Wednesday.

Patrick Allen Cash, a Nashville resident, is accused of phoning in death threats to employees at the New Prague Area School District, bombarding them—and other public servants in Chicago, New York, and Minneapolis—with vile racial slurs while vowing to kill them and their families.

The criminal complaint shows Cash stated: “burn a fucking cross in your fucking front yard,” then “fucking take a piss on your fucking ashes”.

It also says Cash was upset over a report that originated on an alt-right website, claiming the video lesson on microaggressions compared white people “to mosquitos.”

It wasn’t hard to identify Cash as the culprit, as his name and number flashed across the recipients’ caller ID, according to the filing.

Cash did not yet have an attorney listed in court records on Wednesday evening and was unable to be reached for comment.

Neymar’s Girlfriend and Newborn Daughter Targeted by Three Armed Men in Home Invasion

Three armed men broke into the home of soccer star Neymar’s partner, Bruna Biancardi, and were reportedly looking for her and the couple’s newborn daughter.

The terrifying incident took place at Biancardi’s condo in Cotia, a suburb of San Paolo, Brazil, early Tuesday morning.

According to local reports, the soccer star and Biancardi were not at home during the break-in. However, her parents were allegedly present for the traumatizing ordeal.

Reports state that two armed men and another suspect tied up Biancardi’s parents and proceeded to ransack the residence, stealing designer handbags, jewelry, and other luxury items as they searched for the influencer and the newborn.

R7 newspaper reported that the burglars targeted the home in search of Biancardi and her daughter, Mavie, who was born weeks ago in October. One day before the break-in, Neymar shared a photo of his daughter on social media.

Thankfully, Biancardi’s parents were not injured in the incident, and neighbors acted quickly to alert law enforcement on the break-in.

Authorities were able to take one of the suspects into custody at the scene. The two other men remain at large. The suspect taken into custody is a 20-year-old male who may have a connection to Biancardi’s neighborhood.

It is believed that the apprehended suspect is the influencer’s neighbor and allegedly used his access to the neighborhood’s security gates to let the other two men enter the secured area.

The San Paolo Department of Public Safety released a statement on the incident.

“The Civil Police of Cotia is investigating a robbery that occurred on the morning of Tuesday (07) in a condominium in the city,” the statement began. “According to reports, three armed men allegedly entered the residence and overpowered the 50-year-old and 52-year-old victims. The suspects stole purses, watches, and jewelry.”

“A 20-year-old man was arrested in the act. The second perpetrator has already been identified and efforts are underway to identify the third, as well as arrest them. The case is being registered in the 2nd DP of Cotia. More information will be provided at the end of the registration.”

Neymar is currently recovering from knee surgery and is expected to be ruled out for play for the next 10 months.

The soccer player released a brief statement on the “attack that Bru’s parents suffered,” simply saying, “Thank God everyone is fine.”

Rapper Crashes His Car into Capitol Building in Washington DC

DC rapper Baby Jamo has landed himself in some serious trouble after being arrested for crashing his car into a barricade outside the Capitol building.

On Monday (November 6), the United States Capitol Police put out a press release about the arrest, in which they revealed the “Back Door Con Artist” MC (real name Ricardo Glass) was arrested alongside Onosetale Okojie after they crashed into the barricade around the secured government building in the early hours of that morning.

The car they crashed — a white Infiniti Q50 — was previously idling at a green light, which led the police to believe that the driver was “impaired.” When the police attempted to make the stop, the pair allegedly sped away, which is when they crashed into the Capitol building barricade.

The DC rapper and his alleged co-conspirator then got out of the car and attempted to escape on foot, but both were caught separately.

In searching the area after the pair’s arrests, guns were also found — one of which had a so-called “giggle switch,” which is an illegal modification designed to turn a regular gun into a machine gun. It’s unclear how the Capitol police were able to tie the guns to Baby Jamo and his alleged co-conspirator.

The pair have been charged with almost 20 felonies, including two charges of carrying a pistol without a license, unauthorized use of a vehicle, unlawful entry of a motor vehicle, receiving stolen property of $1000 or more, and possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device.

Other charges on the long list include: fleeing from a law enforcement officer in a motor vehicle, felon in possession, reckless driving, no permit, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, possession of unregistered ammunition, obliterate, remove, change, or alter the serial number of a gun, and unlawful possession of a machine gun.

It is unclear where the pair have been taken to be held on their charges until their arraignment. However, the Capitol police have issued a statement claiming that taking the rapper and his alleged accomplice off the streets is a victory in DC’s battle against illegal guns.

“This is just another example of our officers and their vigilance and perseverance putting away dangerous criminals,” said USCP Assistant Chief Sean Gallagher in the press release statement. “They are constantly working to keep everyone safe throughout the Capitol Complex.”

Man Living Next to Daycare Threatens to ‘Kill All the Children’

A North Carolina man was arrested twice within a 24-hour time span after he allegedly threatened to ‘kill all the children’.

On Nov. 1, Kevin Edral Douglas was arrested after police found messages through the cybertip reporting service on the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children website, as Front Page Detectives reported.

Police in Cary found the alleged messages on Oct. 30 and Oct. 31, officials said.

Douglas, who was staying at the Extended Stay America in the town, allegedly posted messages about harming children, according to federal documents.

Some of the messages were jumbled and incoherent, but police said they were still able to find the phrases “I’m going to murder every child in the hotel now” and “I’m going to kill all the children,” WTVD-TV reported.

Court documents show that Bright Horizons at Harrison Park, a daycare, is located across the street from where Douglas was staying at the time.

Police said they also found phrases in Douglas’ writings that could be references to the daycare, such as “in a ritual-killing I’m going to kill all the…children in the area…there’s 45 children near me.”

Authorities said they believe those words could “reasonably be referring to a physical attack against” Bright Horizons.

Douglas was released from jail on Nov. 1 on a $1,000 bond, officials said.

However, he was arrested again less than a day later after he allegedly violated an order not to use any electronic devices, according to police.

Before the second arrest, Douglas reportedly called the WRAL newsroom at 8:30 a.m. on Nov. 2 and said he had seen himself mentioned on TV more than 55 times because of the prior arrest, WRAL reported.

Douglas told WRAL that he was only reporting the threats and he was not the person making them.

WRAL spoke to Douglas’s mother, who said he allegedly suffers from mental illness but refuses treatment.

Douglas, who has an extensive history of threatening behavior, was released from federal prison in 2016 after threatening to kill a person at the British Embassy in Washington, D.C., WRAL reported.

He also was charged with cyberstalking three times in the past 15 years, but each case was dismissed. His criminal history dates back to 2002 and spans multiple states, authorities said.

Douglas is next scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 20, and his new bond was set at $20,000.
