Colerain Twp. police chief makes bold statements about fatal shooting at party

Despite hearing what happened at 9917 Capstan Drive, Nicole Bracey values the years she spent living just a few blocks away.

“I love Colerain,” she said. “I love this area. It’s a great school district.”

Like others, Bracey was alarmed when detectives in Colerain Township said someone shot and killed Autum Garrett and injured eight others during what was initially called a gender-reveal party last month at the home on Capstan Drive.

Police now say there was no pending birth to celebrate.

On Monday, Colerain Police Chief Mark Denney issued a statement saying, “Investigators have found multiple connections between individuals attending the party and three different drug circles, which are now being investigated concurrently.”

Denney continued, “We expect a very long and thorough investigation that will result in multiple arrests… In no way has this investigation hit a dead-end or gone ‘cold.’ New information is learned daily and interviews continue

Paul Greengrass directing Netflix movie about mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik

One of the most heinous crimes of the century will be adapted in a film for Netflix by director Paul Greengrass, Deadline reports.

Greengrass, who is known for his contributions to the Bourne franchise, the Tom Hanks-starring Captain Phillips, as well as the breathtaking September 11 chronicle United 93, will direct from his own script the story of a 2011 Norwegian terror attack that left 77 dead, many of them children. The murders were committed by a single killer, Anders Behring Breivik, an extremist who dressed as a police officer while using guns and a bomb to carve a trail of carnage in the worst attack the nation of Norway has experienced since the days of World War II. 

The majority of the murders were committed at a youth camp for the nation’s Labor Party on Utoya Island, with many of Breivik’s victims trapped with him on the 26-acre island in Norway’s lake Tyrifjorden.

The film will reportedly shoot

8 Shocking Facts About Confessed Spree Killer Cosmo DiNardo Of The Pennsylvania Murders

Friends and family are still struggling to understand why two small-time drug dealers went on a killing spree, murdering four young men they knew. Days after the men were reported missing, police began to focus on the family farm of 20-year-old Cosmo DiNardo, a troubled young man from the Philadelphia suburbs. Their investigation eventually led to his arrest, along with his accomplice, 20-year-old Sean Kratz. DiNardo made a full confession last week in a deal to avoid the death penalty.

Police say the killing began on July 5, when DiNardo gunned down former classmate Jimi Patrick, 19, after he came up thousands of dollars short in a deal for four pounds of marijuana. After shooting him with a rifle, he buried Patrick on his family farm in rural Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Two days later, DiNardo and Kratz decided to rob and kill 19-year-old Dean Finocchiaro during another pot deal, each man

5 Things to Know About the Deadly Mass Shooting After a Gender Reveal Party in Ohio

Eight people were shot and a ninth person was killed in a mass shooting Saturday night outside Cincinnati, according to police.

Authorities say that family and friends had gathered at a home in Colerain Township, Ohio, when two suspects entered the residence and opened fire about 11:20 p.m.

The violence was brief but left a room full of victims, including three wounded children and a 22-year-old woman dead from multiple gunshots.

Here are five things to know about the case.

1. Shooting Came After Gender Reveal Party

The victims had attended a gender reveal party at the Colerain Township home that Saturday where the expectant mother, 21, announced she was pregnant with a boy, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. The party ended earlier in the night but multiple people, kids and adults, remained inside, according to the paper.

Gunfire erupted soon after the

OC Sheriff Testifies About Jailhouse Informants in Seal Beach Salon …

Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens, testifying Wednesday in an evidentiary hearing in the death penalty case against the worst mass killer in the county’s history, said her department has not engaged in a conspiracy to use jailhouse informants in illegal ways.

Hutchens’ testimony came in the third round of evidentiary hearings to determine if Scott Dekraai — who pleaded guilty to eight murders and one attempted murder at a Seal Beach beauty salon — can get a fair shake in the penalty phase.

Orange County Superior Court Judge Thomas Goethals has said he may dismiss the death penalty as an option in the case depending on the evidence produced in this latest round of hearings. Dekraai’s attorney, Assistant Public Defender Scott Sanders, showed the sheriff memos from Deputy William Grover, one of the central figures in two prior rounds of evidentiary hearings.

In one email, Grover asks colleagues about

OC Sheriff to Testify About Jailhouse Informants in Seal Beach …

Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens will begin testifying Wednesday in an evidentiary hearing regarding the use of jailhouse informants as part of the death penalty case against Scott Evans Dekraai, the worst mass killer in the county’s history.

Dekraai, who pleaded guilty in May 2014 to eight murders and one attempted murder for a 2011 massacre at a Seal Beach beauty salon, is awaiting the penalty phase of the legal proceedings, with the state Attorney General’s Office still pursuing the death penalty.

The Orange County District Attorney’s Office was kicked off the case for outrageous governmental misconduct.

Orange County Superior Court Judge Thomas Goethals, who booted Orange County prosecutors from the case, is holding a third round of evidentiary hearings into how the prosecution was handled to determine if it is possible for Dekraai to receive a fair trial in the penalty phase.

Nine mass shootings happened in the US this week. You probably heard about just one of them.

On Wednesday (June 14), James T. Hodgkinson opened fire on a group of Republican members of Congress and their staff, injuring five people including House majority whip Steve Scalise. That shooting, which occurred on a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia, was widely covered by the media and sparked conversations about gun control and political violence. But not counting the tragedy in Alexandria, the US actually experienced eight mass shootings just this week, leading to 12 deaths and 27 injuries. These tragedies received much less media attention.

Indeed mass shootings have become so commonplace in the US, it seems, that very few now attract national media coverage. (The number of mass shootings in the US varies depending on the definition.) And of course, for every mass casualty event, there are many more deaths and injuries caused by firearms that are not classified as mass shootings. According to the New York Times, if
