Missing For Nearly A Decade, Three Young Women Are Now Free
Three women who went missing separately about a decade ago when they were in their teens or early 20s were found alive Monday (May 6th) in Cleveland and three men were arrested. A neighbor said he heard screams and ran to the house where he found one of the women, Amanda Berry, and lent her his cell phone to call 911. Berry told the dispatcher that the person who’d taken her was out of the house and pleaded for police to come get and her, saying, “I’ve been kidnapped, and I’ve been missing for 10 years.” Also found in the home were Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight. Berry disappeared at age 16 in April 2003, after calling her sister to say she was getting a ride home from her job at a Burger King. DeJesus disappeared at age 14 on her way home from school about a year later. They were both found just a few miles from where they had gone missing. Knight, who is now 32, disappeared in 2002. According to AP, one of the women has a six-year-old baby. Three men were arrested, with some reports saying they were brothers, and among them reportedly was a 52-year-old Cleveland public schools bus driver named Ariel Castro.
NFL Player Wants $785K Engagement Ring Back from Ex-Fiancee
The perennial question of whether the ring should be given back when an engaged couple calls it off has surfaced again in a big way, with Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams suing ex-fiancee Erin Marzouki to get the $785,000, 10-carat diamond engagement ring back that he gave her. Williams met Marzouki in Houston where he played for the Houston Texans, and they got engaged in February 2011. However, Marzouki broke up with Williams 11 months later — but didn’t give the ring back. The lawsuit claims that Marzouki used him for his fame and money, claiming that he spent $1,123,000 in one year on a fiancee who broke up with him less than a year after they got engaged.
Cemeteries Refusing to Accept Boston Bombing Suspect’s Body for Burial
The family of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev is having a hard time trying to bury the 26-year-old who was killed in a shootout with police four days after the marathon attack, with cemeteries across Massachusetts refusing to accept the body for burial. Tsarnaev lived in Cambridge, but city manager Robert Healy doesn’t want him buried in the cemetery there, saying it wouldn’t be, quote, “in the best interests of ‘peace within the city.’” With other cemeteries in the state expressing similar sentiments, Governor Deval Patrick said yesterday (May 5th) that he wouldn’t get involved in the matter on one side or the other. After Tsarnaev’s wife declined to have his remains released to her, his uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, went to Massachusetts from his home in Maryland to take care of the burial. Tsarni said he understands the feelings of those who don’t want Tsarnaev in a Massachusetts cemetery, but that a proper burial is what tradition, religion and morality require. The problem was avoided in the past with some other notorious criminals, such as Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, Newtown massacre killer Adam Lanza, Columbine shooter Dylan Klebold and serial killer Ted Bundy by having their bodies cremated. But that won’t work with Tsarnaev, since cremation is against Islamic law.
