Authorities ID victim, officer in Mass. shooting

SPENCER, Massachusetts — The man who was shot to death by Spencer police on Sunday had a history of run-ins with law enforcement, including a 2014 standoff with police in South Carolina.

Walter Lynde, 49, of East Brookfield was shot to death by Officer Brandon Fullam after a woman on Northwest Road reported domestic violence, according to the office of Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.

In 2014, Mr. Lynde was involved in a 16-hour standoff with police Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The confrontation evolved from an argument Mr. Lynde and his girlfriend had when he showed up at her place of work, according to news accounts in Myrtle Beach.

In 2001, Mr. Lynde, then 33, was involved in a police chase from Sturbridge to North Brookfield. Police sought Mr. Lynde after a report of an intoxicated man at a liquor store

John Wayne Gacy Victim Identified Four Decades Later

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW) — DNA analysts at the University of North Texas Center for Human Identification in Fort Worth made a second positive ID of eight previously unidentified bodies believed to have been victims of mass murderer John Gacy’s killing spree from the mid to late 1970s.

The Cook County Sheriff’s office in Illinois announced on Wednesday the DNA match is that of 16-year old James “Jimmie” Haakenson.

Eight unidentified bodies were discovered inside the crawl space of Gacy’s home in 1978. In 2011 UNT began assisting the Cook County Sheriff’s office in attempting to identify those bodies by use of DNA.

Haakenson’s match is the second of the eight.

A statement from UNT read as follows:

“The UNT Center for Human Identification has been assisting with the Cook County Sheriff’s Office’s Gacy investigation since 2011. Back then, our lab developed DNA profiles from eight unidentified Gacy victims.

These DNA profiles have been continuously compared to family references

NEW ORLEANS — Six people were shot while sitting on their front porch in Gentilly Thursday night.

Mass Shooting Victim, in Last Public Words, Urged Compassion for Her Attackers

When four gunmen opened fire on a New Orleans parade on Mother’s Day in 2013, sending the crowd running, Deborah Cotton stood in place and stared at one of the shooters.

“I looked over and I saw one of the main shooters,” she said last month when she was honored at a dinner of Avodah, the Jewish service group. “Everyone else had taken off running, and for some reason I was just captivated by this one shooter. He reminded me of my son or my nephew.

“My gut instinct was to run over and stop him, take the gun, run with him, move him out of the way,” she said. “My feeling for them was sorrow.” Nevertheless, Cotton was among those shot, losing a kidney and gall bladder, and suffering damage to her stomach, intestines and pancreas.
