Kelsey Grammer: ‘I dread meeting my sister’s killer’

At 13, his estranged father Frank Allen Grammer was murdered – shot by a psychopath. And at 25 his two young half-brothers, Stephen and Billy, died in a scuba-diving accident.

The actor rose to fame in 1984 when he began playing psychiatrist Frasier Crane on NBC’s Cheers and went on to star in 11 series of offshoot Frasier. He has won 37 Emmys, a Tony and three Golden Globes.

He is currently in London’s West End show Big Fish: The Musical. His song choices included Frank Sinatra’s Fly Me To The Moon and Jimi Hendrix’s All Along The Watchtower.

His book of choice was A Passage To India by EM Forster and a magnifying glass was his luxury item.

Tampa police: Suspect was behind 4 murders.

Apple served with warrant for Texas mass killer’s iCloud data

Here we go again: another mass shooting, another killer’s iPhone that police can’t get into, and potentially another legal battle over Apple’s encryption.

Earlier in the month, the FBI announced it couldn’t break into the iPhone of Devin Patrick Kelley, the shooter in the mass murder of 26 people in a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Now, court records seen by the San Antonio Express-News show that two days after the FBI’s announcement – and its bemoaning of the way Apple’s encryption hampers law enforcement – a Texas Ranger obtained search warrants for data belonging to the Sutherland Springs killer.

One warrant, issued on 9 November, is for files stored on an iPhone SE found near Kelley’s body and on a second LG phone. Another warrant seeks files stored in Kelley’s iCloud account – specifically, phone

Cops jam a warrant into Apple to make it cough up Texas mass killer’s iPhone, iCloud files

Here we go again…

Police officers in bodu armour mill around in field

Texas Rangers have obtained a search warrant for the contents of a blood-splattered iPhone SE belonging to gunman Devin Kelley who killed 26 people in a murder-suicide at a church.

Over the weekend, the US state’s equivalent of the FBI served the Cupertino phone-flinger a warrant demanding photos, messages and other potential evidence on Kelley’s iPhone as well as those stored on its associated iCloud account. Investigators also have a warrant to extract data stored on Kelley’s second handset, an LG flip-phone. He was named as the shooter in the November 5 Sutherland Springs mass-murder.

At this point it is not known if the files sought can all be pulled from backups held in the iCloud account, or if some will need to be obtained directly from the iPhone. If the iPhone is locked and

Texas Bites Apple for Mass Killer’s iPhone Files

Authorities are demanding Apple turn over all photos, messages and documents that might have been stored on an iPhone belonging to Devin Patrick Kelley, the crazed gunman who shot dead 26 worshippers at a Texas church.

The Texas Rangers obtained search warrants for files stored on Kelley’s phone, which was discovered near his body after the Nov. 5th bloodbath at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, The San Antonio Express-News reports.

Those files kept may be stored in Kelley’s iCloud account, according to law enforcement officials.

An Apple spokesman told the Express-News the company does not comment on law enforcement matters.

The warrant comes as authorities continue to piece together the motives behind the mass shooting that stunned the nation.

During a church service, Kelley went aisle to aisle shooting victims — including crying babies — at point-blank range. He later died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Kelley is said to have had a history

Mass killer Charles Manson, whose brutal cult slayings made him face of evil, dead

LOS ANGELES — Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after masterminding the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, died Sunday night after nearly a half-century in prison. He was 83.

Manson died of natural causes at a California hospital while serving a life sentence, his name synonymous to this day with unspeakable violence and depravity.

Michele Hanisee, president of the Association of Deputy District Attorneys for Los Angeles County, reacted to the death by quoting the late Vincent Bugliosi, the prosecutor who put Manson behind bars. Bugliosi said: “Manson was an evil, sophisticated con man with twisted and warped moral values.”

“Today, Manson’s victims are the ones who should be remembered and mourned on the occasion of his death,” Hanisee said.

A petty criminal
