Portland stabbing: Arrest made for theft from victim's body

Image
The suspect faces charges including abuse of a corpse and evidence tampering

Police in Portland, Oregon, have arrested a man suspected of stealing belongings from one of two people stabbed to death on a local train earlier this week.

George Elwood Tschaggeny, 51, was found wearing the wedding ring of one of the victims, Ricky Best, police say.

Mr Best, 53, was killed when he intervened to protect two young women from anti-Muslim abuse last week.

His ring and backpack were stolen after the stabbing on Tuesday.

Mr Tschaggeny has been charged with theft, tampering with evidence, and abuse of a corpse. He is due in court on Monday.

Mr Best, an army veteran, and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, 23, have been hailed as heroes for their actions.

CCTV footage of the suspect, carrying Mr Best's backpack, helped identify him

Watchdog: Pentagon spent $28M on Afghan uniforms with ill-suited camouflage file under "I asked for water but she gave me gasoline"

June 21 (UPI) -- The U.S. Department of Defense may have wasted nearly $30 million over the past decade on uniforms for the Afghan military that featured a forest-style camouflage pattern inappropriate for the country's desert landscapes, a top government fiscal watchdog said Wednesday.

A 17-page report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction says $28 million has already been spent by the Pentagon on the uniforms -- and perhaps another $72 million will go toward them in the next decade.

According to the analysis, the Pentagon decided in 2007 on a uniform for the Afghan National Army that included a camouflage pattern that presented two problems: First, it included a forest pattern for a Middle Eastern country dominated by deserts -- and second, the U.S. government didn't own the pattern, meaning it had to pay a private company for its use.

In the mid seventies I did some work for a crazy Dutch guy who had somehow landed a contract to supply 100,000 wooden pallets to the army.

So, fueled by all sorts of natural and unnatural stimulants as supplied by the boss, four of us worked night and day for $20.00 an hour for around three or four months building wooden pallets. The factory was located in a surreal basement area that had been a night club and was still all red walls coloured lights and a blasting sound system. The building also housed a bar (that served kids) an excellent video arcade a food court and a bunch of movie theatres. That place was heaven for a fifteen year old runaway with money. My enduring memory is the partying with power tools day in day out for weeks and weeks. Some how we managed to complete the contract almost on time and nobody was badly injured or killed. I found out later that the boss made over a million dollar profit on that little adventure.

It turned out that the pallets weren't fit for purpose they couldn't take the weight so were useless, the army had provided the wrong specifications on the tender documents.....They all ended up as expensive firewood.....

Sheer brilliance.
"According to the initial reports, somebody tried to light a cigarette, and when the spilt fuel caught fire, leading to the tanker's explosion," Jam Sajjad Hussain, spokesman for the rescue workers service said.

At least 148 people were killed as they rushed to collect spilled fuel after an oil tanker overturned and exploded in Pakistan, rescue workers have said.

Some 140 people were wounded, including 40 in critical condition, said Mohammad Baqar, an official with local rescue services, adding that the toll was expected to rise.

could this also be fake?

A woman fatally shot her boyfriend in a YouTube stunt to "boost her online profile".


Monalisa Perez from Minnesota claimed after being charged in the shooting that it was a stunt gone badly wrong.

Ms Perez, who is pregnant, was charged on Wednesday with second-degree manslaughter in the death of Pedro Ruiz III.

Crooks steal caravan with occupant asleep inside

Last updated 12:13pm, August 4th, 2017

The caravan was stolen from Petone, near Wellington just after midnight on Friday.

A Petone man sleeping inside a caravan got a rude awakening on Friday morning when he realised he was on the move.

Police were contacted by the man just after midnight, who told them that the caravan he was inside was being stolen.

The man stayed on the line with police, giving updates on the caravan's exact movements.

The ute (utility vehicle) towing the caravan drove from Petone, over the Wainuiomata hill, where it was finally stopped by police.

The driver of the ute was unaware anyone was in the caravan until being met by officers in Wainuiomata.

The man inside the caravan was unharmed.

A pump action BB gun and rounds of ammunition were found in the ute.

A 36-year-old Lower Hutt man was arrested and is due in the Hutt Valley District Court this morning, charged with theft and possession of ammunition as well as burglary, in relation to a previous offence.
