Man who claims he was fathered during Wisconsin orgy makes claim against Manson estate

A man who believes convicted mass murderer Charles Manson fathered him during a Wisconsin orgy in the late 1960s plans to make a claim to the estate.

Matt Lentz, a Los Angeles-area musician who goes by the name Matthew Roberts, has a will that Manson purportedly signed in January 2017 naming him as beneficiary, said his agent, Mike Smith. He said Manson gave the will to friend and memorabilia collector Ben Gurecki, who is named as executor.

Lentz was expected in court Monday as the battle brewing over Manson’s estate began, but didn’t show up. Smith said Lentz was having trouble finding a lawyer to take the case.

It remains unclear where the court challenges will be fought or whether others will join a pen pal and purported grandson laying claim to the cult leader’s possessions and body.

The issue of venue is clouded because Manson, 83, died at a

What makes a mass shooting count as terrorism?

When we talk about terrorism, we’re talking about something that is an inherently political form of violence. With this most recent shooting, we do not know the shooter’s motive.

Regardless of that, we typically think of an act of terrorism as being part of a systematic campaign. Each act in itself sends a message and communicates the threat of another attack. We understand something about the meaning of the attack from the act itself — from the target, from the perpetrator, from the method used, from the place where the attack occurred. We infer the meaning of the action from those attributes.

“Terrorism is simply a method that’s used in the service of a cause.”

In most cases, there is an explicit claim by some organized entity that has substance — a leader, a name, a manifesto — with a wider sphere of recognition. For instance, if an attack can be linked to a group like Al Qaeda, we would

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

Mass killer Breivik makes Nazi salute at rights appeal case


SKIEN, Norway Mass killer Anders Behring Breivik made a Nazi salute at the start of a court case on Tuesday at which Norway is trying to overturn a ruling that it has violated his human rights by keeping him isolated since he massacred 77 people in 2011.

Breivik, wearing a black suit and tie, raised his right arm to make the flat-handed Nazi-style salute as he entered the court in a converted gym at the jail where he lives in a three-room cell.

It was similar to the salute he gave at a lower court in March, when the judge ended up agreeing that the Norwegian state had violated a ban on “inhuman and degrading” treatment under the European Convention on Human Rights by keeping him too
