10- year old accidentally kills mother before Christmas

A ten-year-old boy’s dream was to have virtual reality. After obsessing over it and seeing what seemed like everyone else playing them online, he wondered how cool it would be to own one. And he had a plan. He was going to ask Santa for one, just like in the movie A Christmas Story. just like when Ralphie really wanted that BB gun, the Red Ryder, and when all hope was lost, he ended up getting one for Christmas after all.

His mom however has been a single mom since Her son was a baby. She was currently working two jobs just to support them. They lived in a run-down neighborhood. She came home from work one night and the house was ransacked she had worked so hard this last little bit to put together everything she had in her savings to get her son one gift. With getting a bonus from work and working overtime she was able to get enough money to buy her son a Virtual Reality system that he has been wanting all year. Her son was a hard worker and never complained about his chores, got all A’s in his class quite a kid but a good kid.

Yet most years for Christmas all she was able to get him was things he needed like shoes and a new backpack. She knew he was going to be surprised. But this so happened that the day her house was broken into that they stole the Virtual reality system that she had scraped and saved for. She was devastated she had worked so hard to get him this gift. But at least she thought to herself at least he doesn’t know so he won’t be disappointed. She did indeed tell him that the gifts were stolen but she did not mention anything about the VR gaming set. Since then she bought a gun for protection just in case. She had never shot a gun before so she ended up going to a shooting range and learned how to use it for protection just in case she ever needed to.

Not knowing how she was going to even afford clothes this year for Christmas she was crying in her room. Her son came in and told his mom that it was okay that he had a plan and that it was going to be okay. She then asked what do you mean you have a plan? The boy ran to his room and ran back to show his mom that he wrote a letter to Santa to ask him to get him a VR headset and get his mom a nice Jewelry set as well. “Santa has never visited us before but I have been so good this year and I don’t think he will mind just this one Christmas if he comes to our house just once.”

His mom was heartbroken and crushed by the kindness of her son’s heart. His mom has never had the heart to tell him that Santa isn’t real, but she also doesn’t have the money to afford to ever get him anything. She guessed it was time she told him the truth. She tells The Boy that Santa is in all of us and that it is in what we do to help people and share the joy with them that is the true Santa that Santa the magical Santa isn’t real but the joy of being able to do kindness for others is very real.

The boy turned very pale and started to hyperventilate. “What do you mean Santa isn’t real?” He screamed, ” That was our only hope to have our one chance at having a good Christmas, and now that is gone!” His mom tried to comfort her son to tell him they will get through this and they are going to be okay. “I want to kill those robbers.” He screamed; he saw the gun on his mom’s nightstand, and he grabbed it from her. He fought back and forth with the gun in hand, trying desperately to get it away from him. And then the gun went off. His mom collapsed to the floor with a gunshot wound in her stomach, and she started convulsing and foaming at the mouth. He backs away and just starts screaming “MOOOOOMMMMYYYYY” “HELP MOMMY SOMEONE HELP”

Neighbors heard the commotion and called 911 by the time the cops got there his mom was pronounced dead at the scene. The boy was charged as an adult last month with alternate counts of first-degree intentional homicide or first-degree reckless homicide.

Wisconsin law requires children as young as 10 to be charged as adults for certain serious crimes, though the boy’s attorneys can seek to move the case to juvenile court. The boy, who family members said has mental health issues, is being held in juvenile detention.

The prosecutor in the case asked the judge to require the boy to be released into the custody of a family member should he post bail. The judge did not impose that restriction.

The boy mostly kept his head down during the hearing. The judge ordered that he not be placed in shackles or any other kind of restraint and forbade the media from publishing any personal information about him, including his image and address.

A brutal killing on Halloween night in 1981 remains unsolved to this day.

Photographer Ronald Sisman and Smith College student Elizabeth Platzman were beaten in their Manhattan apartment on Halloween night in 1981 before being shot dead. Their apartment was completely ransacked, but nothing seemed missing. 

The case remains unsolved.  Many theorized that these killings were perpetrated by more than one person and claimed that the murders were linked to an underground satanic cult that went far beyond just these slayings. The information he had collected from various sources also alleged that the death of Ron Sisman, a successful photographer from Manhattan, New York, was connected to this cult. So, let’s find out what happened to Ron Sisman then, shall we?

Ronald Sisman was a 39-year-old photographer who lived in a duplex apartment on the third floor of a building in the Chelsea section of Manhattan. He was a rather prolific lensman who operated two photography businesses out of his house. On Halloween night in 1981, Ron was with his girlfriend, 20-year-old Elizabeth Platzman, when they were attacked at his home. Ron and Elizabeth were brutally beaten and then shot in the back of their heads. Ron was reportedly shot four times while Elizabeth, thrice.

The house had been ransacked, and a .25 caliber handgun that was registered to Ron appeared to be missing. Their identification was removed from their bodies. The police speculated that the attacker or attackers might have known Ron since there were no signs of forced entry. Ron had also applied for two gun permits because someone had broken into his apartment before, and he feared for his safety. The initial investigation leaned towards the possibility that the intruders might have been looking for drugs because the house was turned over and the furniture was torn apart. In the previous year, Melonie Haller, an actress, had accused Ron of attempting to force her to take drugs. But the charges against Ron were dropped eventually because Melonie didn’t cooperate with the authorities. But they discerned that those two cases were not connected. The investigation hit a dead-end beyond that. Later on, a prison informant claimed to the police that David Berkowitz, the infamous Son of Sam, had told him about the murder before it happened. David allegedly mentioned that this was going to be carried out by the satanic cult that he was a part of.

It was alleged that the murder of Stacy Moskowitz, Son of Sam’s last victim, was captured on film and that Ron Sisman was the one recording the murder from a distance. On the show, it is stated that there was another informant who contacted Maury, claiming that he was a part of this cult. He mentioned that Ron and his girlfriend were murdered by the cult and ransacked the house because they were looking for the snuff film. In a 1997 interview with Maury, David also mentioned something similar. He talked about the presence of another van at the time the shooting took place. When Maury asked him whether Ron was the one who was recording it, he said that Ron did want to do some filming that evening. Beyond that, David was vague and did not divulge any new information. At the time, there was no concrete proof that backed up these theories and claims, and as a result, the murders of Ron Sisman and Elizabeth Platzman remain unsolved to this day.

Some theories speculate that if they were dabbling in Satanic rituals that they may have had a Sance, and it went very wrong, and daemons entered the house and slayed them.

Maureen Webster

March 2019

Maureen and her husband Jeff had a night out together and had dinner when they got home Jeff remembered setting the house alarm.

Jeff remembers hearing a bang while he was in the kitchen Maureen was upstairs.

“All of a sudden, I heard this explosion above my head,” he recalled. “And I was bleeding all over the place and I had thought she had thrown some firecrackers at me.”

Jeff says that Maureen came downstairs they were both stunned and then he fell to the ground

“I was bleeding everywhere and I can’t see anything and then the next thing I knew I woke up on the floor and I was blind,” he said.

There was another round of gunfire, but Webster claimed he never heard the sounds going off.

“All I know is I woke up on the ground and all I could hear is ‘Jeff I’m hit, I’m hit.’ I say with what? In my mind, I thought something had exploded in the house or something.”

Little did he know that those would be the last words he would ever hear from his wife. The alarms from his house were going off. He didn’t call the police but he said that he knew someone had to of called the police and they had to be on their way. He said then he crawled to the front door and unlocked it so the police could come in.

A neighbor called the police after they arrived Jeff says he remembers no one helping him that they just kept shouting we’ve got to help your wife. “I was just sitting there no one was helping me there were 3 or 4 of them one of them should have been helping me.” Jeff was taken to the hospital and the first thing he asked for was where is his wife. And they notified him she died.

A 911 call brought Sandy police to their home near 11200 South and 900 East.  When they arrived, police heard screams coming from the inside. The front door was open and police entered.  They found the husband and wife shot but alive.  But the wife, Fiore-Webster, died later.  En route to the hospital, Webster told police who may have shot them.

She was shot in the chest two times with a shotgun and pellets ripped through her torso.

A family friend visited him at the hospital where he realized it was not an accidental explosion that killed his wife.

“He said ‘Jeff, this might be a hit you know’ and I said ‘why are you saying that?’ and he said like ‘you got shot,” Webster said. “I said ‘I got shot? From who, with what, where?’”

Sandy police began searching for clues inside and outside of the home.

Two women were named as suspects who had made threats to the family before.

Over the past year, police have executed four search warrants and have requested the women’s cell phone records, text messages, and cell phone tower data.  But a year later, the case remains unsolved.

“Of course we would all like to see closure with this case,” said the father.  But these things take time.  It’s not a cold case they are actively investigating it.  You just have to wait it out and hopefully, something will move.”

Thankfully Jeff’s son was not at the house at the same time.

There was glass blown from the back window with a shotgun you can shoot a shotgun through the glass and you don’t have to be a good shot.

Jeff’s Baby momma stalked him and would threaten him Jeff had a protective order against her and his other ex-girlfriend.

Jeff thinks it could have been one of these two women. Or that someone hired someone else to do the job.

Police have executed 4 warrants and these women claimed that Jeff is a drug dealer that got in over his head. There are no police records with Jeff of anything like this. He’s now blind in one eye and is paralyzed. Jeff’s goal is to hire a private investigator to help solve this case.

Paramedic accused of poisoning wife with Visine drops it is not unreasonable that could happen.

KUTV

Questions to ask Jeff:

You said two women have threatened you in the past you had relationships with both of them what were their names?

Did you have a protective order against either of them?

How long were you and Maureen together? 3 1/2 years

Bullinger Family

Found in Caldwell Idaho his wife and his girlfriend and his 14-year-old daughter were found with gunshot wounds to his head They were from Ogden Utah

The women’s bodies were found June 19 in Bullinger’s shed on his recently purchased Caldwell, Idaho, property. A few weeks later Bullinger’s wife’s car was found abandoned at the Pacific Creek Campground in Teton County. A manhunt was launched, but Bullinger is still missing.

Cheryl Baker, 56 — his wife of nearly 10 years as well as Nadja Medley, 48, and her 14-year-old daughter, Payton Medley.

According to friends, Nadja Medley was Bullinger’s girlfriend of almost two years. Bullinger and the Medleys had recently moved from Utah to a house at 216 S. KCID Road in Caldwell, which Bullinger took ownership of on May 3, 2017. Cheryl Baker and Nadja Medley, according to their families, did not know about each other.

The last clues of Gerald Bullinger’s whereabouts came in July 2017. His Ford Focus was found abandoned in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in a remote campground near Moran, Wyo., on July 12, 2017. A week later, Bonneville County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a reported sighting of Bullinger but found no sign of him.

The investigation quickly spread across multiple states, including Idaho, where the bodies were found; Wyoming, where Bullinger’s car was found; and Utah, where Bullinger lived before moving to Idaho.

all 3 bodies were discovered in his shed in Caldwell. Nadaja was normally good about calling her friends so when she didn’t respond on the 12th of June her friend called police because they were concerned they haven’t heard from her.

Nadja Medley, 44, lived for her teenaged daughter Payton and only wanted the best for her child. Medley was doing everything she could to make ends meet and provide for her daughter, especially after her husband died of a heart attack 2014.

Payton’s friend Sydney Call opened up to In Pursuit, sharing, “Payton was the most kindhearted girl that I have ever met. She was so sweet, she wore her heart on her sleeve, and she had the brightest smile — she lit up anybody’s day.” As for Medley and Payton, “They were super, super close. They were friends just as much as mother and daughter,” Call adds.

Nadja was a massage Therapist Gerald came walking into her spa one day and thought he was single. Sometimes tho for “work” he was gone for weeks at a time.

Gerald asked her to move into his Caldwell home and start a new life with him. She was very excited.

On the weekend of June 9, 2017, Medley was supposed to make the trip back to Utah to pick up her horses, but she never showed. Not only did she not make it, but she wasn’t accepting or returning calls. on June 11th her friend calls police and notifies them she isn’t answering her calls. She kept calling police hounding them to do something finally on June 19th they went to look at the property in Caldwell and found in the shed his wife, his girlfriend, his girlfriends 14 year old and 3 dead dogs as well. With it being hot and who knows how long they have been there they were already decomposed and almost unrecognizable.

The house was in his wifes name not his.

Cheryls friends told media that she was going to go up to Caldwell to surprised Gerold because it was their anniversary and he had been “working so hard on this second house.” Well, it is to assume that she found out he had a mistress instead. No one knows what happened next except Gerold and he’s missing.

He went to utah and picked up his wife that was being serviced at a car dealership and ditched his truck this is though to get the police off his tail.

He took her car and then the car was found around the teton mountains and he has never been seen since.

There are several theories here:

One theory is that his wife found out about his girlfriend and came to confront her and kill her and that maybe she did kill her and then her daughter came running into the room and she killed her as well and then Gerold came in and struggled with her and then killed her.

I think that honestly what probably happened is that his wife came to confront her husband and when she came knocking at the door he grabbed his gun and killed her and then killed the other two and ran off and now is living a new life.

There’s another theory that the girlfriend Nadja grabbed the gun and shot Cheryl and then her daughter came in and was fighting to try to get the gun away and she shot her on accident and then he killed Nadja.

The gun was never found but it is known they were shot with the same gun.

Philip Adams

Former NFL player Philip Adams was charged with killing 6 people and then he killed himself.

including a prominent doctor, his wife, and their two grandchildren, before later killing himself, authorities said Thursday.

Authorities have said they think the motive was that Dr. Robert Lesslie stopped Philips medication it is unclear what the medication was.

Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70, and his wife, Barbara, 69, were pronounced dead at the scene Wednesday, along with their grandchildren Adah Lesslie, 9, and Noah Lesslie, 5.

Robert Lesslie was an ER doctor and was well-loved and even wrote a few books.

A man who had been working at the home, James Lewis, 38, from Gaston, was found shot to death outside. A sixth victim, Robert Shook, 38, of Cherryville, North Carolina, was flown to a Charlotte hospital, where he was in critical condition “fighting hard for his life,” said a cousin, Heather Smith Thompson he is still in critical condition as of now.

  Two 9-1-1 calls were made. The first from an HVAC company that employed Lewis and the other person doing work at the Lesslie home. One of them, the caller said, had called him “screaming” and saying that he had been shot and that his co-worker was shot and “unresponsive.”

“I think there’s been a bad shooting,” a different man said in a second 911 call, saying he was outside cutting his grass and heard “about 20” shots fired at the Lesslie home before seeing someone leave the house.

Evidence left at the scene of the shooting led them to Adams as a suspect. He said they went to Adams’ parents’ home, evacuated them and then tried to talk Adams out of the house. Eventually, they found him dead of a single gunshot wound to the head in a bedroom, he said. Adams was 32.

a .45 and a 9mm handgun were used in Wednesday’s shooting.

Philips had been treated by Lesslie, who lived near his parents’ home in Rock Hill, according to a person who was briefed about the investigation and who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly.

Lesslie had worked for decades as an emergency room doctor, board-certified in both emergency medicine and occupational medicine, and serving as emergency department medical director for nearly 15 years at Rock Hill General Hospital, according to his website.

Adams played in 78 NFL games over six seasons for six teams. He joined the 49ers in 2010 as a seventh-round draft pick out of South Carolina State, and though he rarely started, he went on to play for New England, Seattle, Oakland and the New York Jets before finishing his career with the Falcons in 2015. he had two concussions over three games in 2012.

He was charged with simple assault and battery in 2009, and was acquitted of the charge in a bench trial, according to South Carolina court records.

He was also convicted of several York County traffic charges, including driving under suspension and failure to maintain proof of insurance. These two charges make police say this was not CTE but because Dr Lesslie wouldn’t refill his medication.

Whether he suffered long-lasting concussion-related injuries wasn’t immediately clear. Adams would not have been eligible for testing as part of a broad settlement between the league and its former players over such injuries, because he hadn’t retired by 2014.

But I think to be honest he could of been suffering from CTE which is

Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive and fatal brain disease associated with repeated traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), including concussions and repeated blows to the head.

Philips’ father told a Charlotte television station that he blamed football for problems that might have led his son to commit Wednesday’s violence. He said he wasn’t acting right and that he was anxious, he was muttering to himself and kept inside a lot his father remarked that some days he just didn’t feel like himself so he would keep to himself a lot.

Deputies were called around 4:45 p.m. Wednesday to the Lesslies’ home, which is far up a driveway from an arched stone gate, and not visible from the road. They evacuated the neighbors as they spent hours searching for a suspect with police dogs.

Allison Hope, who lives across from the Adams’ modest one-story brick home, about a mile down the road from the Lesslies, said police allowed her to return home around 9 p.m. Wednesday. Moments later, a vehicle pulled into their driveway and law enforcement quickly surrounded the property.

She said they spent hours negotiating with Adams, using a loudspeaker and sending in a robot to scan the house. She said authorities repeatedly asked Adams to come out, and promised to get his disabled mother out safely, before Adams shot himself.

“This is something I can’t grasp yet. I can’t put it all together and I’m trying to, and I witnessed it,” Hope said. “I feel bad for him because if it was mental or something going on in his life or whatever, you know, he needed help, and that’s the sad part.”

Former Cowboys cornerback Kevin Smith, who trained Adams leading up to the 2010 draft and after he entered the league, said he was a hard worker. He and Casterline both said Adams had opened a shop selling smoothies and juice before COVID-19 hit, and they emphasized Adams didn’t drink or do drugs.

“He didn’t drink not one bit of alcohol,” Smith said. “He was a bit of a neat freak. In his house, everything was precisely placed.”

the first evidence of CTE in an American football player: former Pittsburgh Steeler Mike Webster. The film Concussion with Will Smith in it does a good job of explaining this terrible dessease.

They can’t even tell if you have CTE until after you die.

So what happens is your human brain can get a concussion at 60 G’s a football player on average hits at 160 G’s per blow. Which then causes the brain to become loose from the head making it float and cutting off the nerves to the brain. It’s like pouring wet concrete down a sink drain making them unrecognizable.

The doctors believe it is early alztimers desease But after viewing the brain after death it is CTE and it is what killed Mike Webster Football killed Mike Webster. And possibly Philip Adams.

Terry Long also had CTE he ended up threatening to kill his wife and kids and then took off in his car and drank a gallon of antifreeze before setting himself on fire.

While aggression is common in players who are ultimately found to have had C.T.E., rarely have they resorted to murder or suicide. Junior Seau and Dave Duerson are perhaps the best-known football players who killed themselves and were found to have had C.T.E. A far smaller group — including Jovan Belcher, a Kansas City Chiefs linebacker — has killed others before dying by suicide. Still, C.T.E. has grown in prominence as more former players are found to have had the disease, leading to vociferous debate about its role in their deaths.

Much is still publicly unknown about what kind of medical treatment Adams may have received, or what relationship Adams had with Dr. Robert Lesslie, one of the six people who were murdered. Lesslie was a prominent local physician who specialized in emergency and occupational medicine.

They think the people who are most likely to be effective is sports players such as Football, Hockey, and Soccer as well as Military personal.

Philip Adam’s family has decided to donate his brain to find out if CTE was the cause of this outburst. This can take about 4 months to get back.

The NFL owns Nuro science they say that they can not get brain damage from football. They tried to get CTE to be told it wasn’t real.

Philip’s sister says all of a sudden his aggression just took a turn for the worst and there was no stopping it it was all of a sudden and very fast.

“His mental health degraded fast and terribly bad,” she said. “There was unusual behavior.”

The disease has also been tied to memory lapses, loss of focus, and problems following directions and handling everyday chores. But researchers have found only associations, not causal links, between the disease and the many apparent symptoms.

It remains difficult and perhaps impossible to determine a motive after a suicide because so many factors can play a role, including persistent mental distress and drug use. Adams does not appear to have left a note that tried to explain his motives, and such messages are often considered unreliable.

Symptoms of CTE

Mood and behavior symptoms

Among individuals diagnosed with CTE, some report mood and behavior symptoms that can appear as early as the patient’s 20s. Common changes seen include:

  • Impulse control problems
  • Aggression
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Paranoia
  • Anxiety

Cognitive symptoms

Most patients with CTE eventually experience progressive problems with thinking and memory, including:

  • Short-term memory loss
  • Confusion
  • Impaired judgment
  • Dementia

Cognitive symptoms tend to appear later in life, often in a patient’s 40s or 50s. Patients may exhibit one or both symptom clusters. In some cases, symptoms worsen with time (even if the patient suffers no additional head impacts). In other cases, symptoms may be stable for years before worsening.

Sleep symptoms

A 2020 study from the VA-BU-CLF Brain Bank suggested that problems with sleep, specifically symptoms associated with REM behavior disorder, may be related to CTE pathology. Watch the study’s corresponding author describe the findings by clicking here.

New Evidence:

Police believe there is new evidence that Philp was trying to start a new religion or Cult because of some cryptic messaging. These messages have not yet been released to the public.

According

to Det. D. Askew’s summary of the April 9 search, “Numerous notebooks were located with cryptic writing with different designs and emblems.”

“Detectives had also learned that Phillip Adams had been acting differently and possibly following a new religion or ideology,” the detective wrote.

Theories that Dr. Leslie had something to do with this religion or cult has been circling around but the police have not found any evidence that Dr. Leslie was involved yet.

Thanksgiving Massacre

Most of us associate the holiday with happy Pilgrims and Indians sitting down to a big feast.  And that did happen – once.

The story began in 1614 when a band of English explorers sailed home to  England with a ship full of Patuxet Indians bound for slavery. They left behind smallpox which virtually wiped out those who had escaped.  By the time the Pilgrims arrived in Massachusetts Bay they found only one living Patuxet Indian, a man named Squanto who had survived slavery in England and knew their language.  He taught them to grow corn and to fish, and negotiated a peace treaty between the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Nation. At the end of their first year, the Pilgrims held a great feast honoring Squanto and the Wampanoags.

But as word spread in England about the paradise to be found in the new world, religious zealots called Puritans began arriving by the boat load. Finding no fences around the land, they considered it to be in the public domain. Joined by other British settlers, they seized land, capturing strong young Natives for slaves and killing the rest.  But the Pequot Nation had not agreed to the peace treaty Squanto had negotiated and they fought back. The Pequot War was one of the bloodiest Indian wars ever fought.

In 1637 near present day  Groton, Connecticut, over 700 men, women and children of the Pequot Tribe had gathered for their annual Green Corn Festival which is our Thanksgiving celebration. In the predawn hours the sleeping Indians were surrounded by English and Dutch mercenaries who ordered them to come outside.  Those who came out were shot or clubbed to death while the terrified women and children who huddled inside the longhouse were burned alive. The next day the governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony declared “A Day Of Thanksgiving” because 700 unarmed men, women and children had been murdered.

Cheered by their “victory”, the brave colonists and their Indian allies attacked village after village. Women and children over 14 were sold into slavery while the rest were murdered.  Boats loaded with a many as 500 slaves regularly left the ports of New England. Bounties were paid for Indian scalps to encourage as many deaths as possible.

Following an especially successful raid against the Pequot in what is now  Stamford, Connecticut, the churches announced a second day of “thanksgiving” to celebrate victory over the heathen savages.  During the feasting, the hacked off heads of Natives were kicked through the streets like soccer balls.  Even the friendly Wampanoag did not escape the madness. Their chief was beheaded, and his head impaled on a pole in Plymouth, Massachusetts — where it remained on display for 24 years.

The killings became more and more frenzied, with days of thanksgiving feasts being held after each successful massacre. George Washington finally suggested that only one day of Thanksgiving per year be set aside instead of celebrating each and every massacre. Later Abraham Lincoln decreed Thanksgiving Day to be a legal national holiday during the Civil War — on the same day he ordered troops to march against the starving Sioux in Minnesota.

This story doesn’t have quite the same fuzzy feelings associated with it as the one where the Indians and Pilgrims are all sitting down together at the big feast.  But we need to learn our true history so it won’t ever be repeated.  Next  Thanksgiving, when you gather with your loved ones to Thank God for all your blessings, think about those people who only wanted to live their lives and raise their families.  

John Underhill was one of the main people to lead this massacre

Aubrey Abrakasa

Aubrey was a Popular 17 year old

August 12 2006 San Francisco CA

He had just stepped outside his Grove Street home around 3:14pm on August 14, 2006 He was headed to his job as a youth counselor. When he was shot several times by an unknown assailant. His killer used an automatic weapon, letting loose roughly 30 rounds. Paramedics soon arrived and transported Aubrey to the hospital, where he died 5 hours later.

30 rounds sounds like. a lot and pretty personal

Investigators are trying to figure out what might have made the teenager a target, as he had never been arrested before.

It is beleived that someone does know what is going on but has never came forward.

Even tho it was the middle of the day no other bystandards or witnesses were hit and no one has ever been arrested.

The police beleive he was not part of a gang so the question of motive is still a mystery his case is assigned to the detective who is still on the zodiac killers case. Detective Chaplin.

DNA evidence in this case is very slim there is no clothing, no fingerprints or anything besides bullets left behind.

It is told by witnesses that this vehicle came speeding down the road and Aubrey’s last words were “RUN!”

Rumors circulate around saying that he said something to a gang member either sticking up for himself or a friend who was a gang member and he was sticking up for him and got threatened and that threat was taken out.

The victim’s mother, Paulette Brown, said her son was going to summer school at Mission High and was going to be a senior this fall at Raoul Wallenberg Traditional High School. She said her son was a guard on the high school basketball team and worked at the recreation center two to four hours a day.

“He didn’t have time to be involved in any gang — he didn’t have any idle time,” Brown said. “He was a good kid — everyone says he was never in any trouble, he never went to jail, everybody liked him.” Either she or his father took him to school and to work, the mother added. “We always drove him places. He just started doing things on his own.”

The area known as the Northern Panhandle is a calm neighborhood, she said. “That is why I was never worried. Whoever these people were came here. I never experienced any shooting or trouble over here.”

Thomas Mayfield, director of the city’s Bernal Heights Park, said Abrakasa was supposed to accompany a youth group from the park on a trip on Tuesday to Marine World in Vallejo.

Abrakasa had worked at the park since September of last year, helping coach junior leagues in basketball and baseball, Mayfield said.

“He was getting ready for his senior year,” Mayfield said. “He was an excellent player — he was my assistant coach. He was a real good kid, doing positive things; his mother and father supported him. It’s a tragedy.”

Police are investigating whether the shooting was related to an incident a week before at the Bernal Heights gym where Abrakasa worked.

Mayfield confirmed the incident, but said that Abrakasa’s role was to intervene. “The guys were playing basketball. He broke up a little scuffle in the gym.”

Mayfield said he has worked with youth for years to resolve the city’s violence. “Somebody has to do something about this — I don’t know if people in society are numb to this. Something has to be done to stop more of these senseless shootings.”

Just last week, he said, Abrakasa was gathered with other summer youth program participants and talked about his future.

“I asked them, ‘What are you doing? What is your focus?’ ” Mayfield said, adding that the only answers he ruled out were becoming pro athletes or rap performers. Some wanted to go to college, one wanted to be a gynecologist. Aubrey, he said, wanted to work with kids.

“I want to do what you are doing — working with kids,” Aubrey told Mayfield. “I said, ‘right on.’ It really touched me.”Top Picks In Shopping

“He didn’t have time to be involved in any gang — he didn’t have any idle time,” Brown said. “He was a good kid — everyone says he was never in any trouble, he never went to jail, everybody liked him.” Either she or his father took him to school and to work, the mother added. “We always drove him places. He just started doing things on his own.”

The area known as the Northern Panhandle is a calm neighborhood, she said. “That is why I was never worried. Whoever these people were came here. I never experienced any shooting or trouble over here.”

Amdmed Arbery

His friends said unless it was pouring raining outside Amdmed was going to run.

This was a running routine he has done on a regular basis

There had been break-ins in the area recently which made people more on alert

a 911 call came in saying that there was a man running past a construction site.

Dispatcher and he is breaking into a house right now?

Caller no it’s all open he is running past an open construction area right now he’s running right now there he goes right now.

Dispatcher: okay so what is he doing?

caller: He’s running down the street

the operator says. “I just need to know what he was doing wrong. Was he just on the premises and not supposed to be?”

According to the report Gregory Mc Michael is standing in his front yard when this call was made.

GBI and grand jury will weigh in:

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation did not initially open a probe because the Glynn County Police Department didn't request the bureau's help, though it did request assistance investigating threats against the GCPD and the release of Tuesday's video, according to the bureau. Hours later, the GBI said Durden had formally requested an investigation into Arbery's killing.

Video captures the grisly confrontation

Shortly before Durden's and the GBI's announcements, a local radio personality released a video that appears to show Arbery's killing. The captured events match numerous accounts of the shooting -- including, in many respects -- that of Merritt, Waycross Judicial Circuit District Attorney George Barnhill and, as chronicled in the police report, Greg McMichael. CNN has not verified who recorded the video. The 36-second clip shows the end of the chase and the shooting. It has sound, but only the shotgun blasts are clearly audible. Arbery's and the McMichaels' words, if any were exchanged, cannot be heard. It is not clear what happened before the video begins or after it ends. Taken from inside a vehicle behind Arbery, it begins with Arbery jogging down the middle of the street toward a truck. Greg McMichael is in the back of the truck and his son, Travis, is standing near the hood, according to the Glynn County police report, which does not mention the video. As Arbery approaches the truck, he veers into someone's yard to go around the truck blocking his path. As he passes the truck, he makes a sharp left and tussles with Travis McMichael over the shotgun.

Greg McMichael and his son, Travis, told police they thought Arbery was a criminal. A shot goes off, and the two disappear off the left side of the screen as Arbery appears to throw a punch. Greg McMichael, still standing in the truck bed, produces a handgun but doesn't fire. A second shot is heard off-screen. As they come back into view, both clutching the shotgun, a third shot goes off just as Arbery lands a punch to Travis McMichael's head. Arbery recoils. Blood appears on his white T-shirt, below his left ribcage. He stumbles and drops face-first to the street. Travis McMichael walks away, shotgun in hand, as his father runs toward Arbery with his handgun.The first shot went through Arbery's right palm, consistent with Arbery grabbing the gun barrel, Barnhill wrote. The second shot is consistent with Travis McMichael "attempting to push the gun away from Arbery while Arbery was pulling it toward himself. The third shot, too, appears to be in a struggle over the gun," the prosecutor wrote. Greg McMichael had blood on his hands when police arrived, observed a Glynn County police officer, who concluded in his report that the blood came from Greg McMichael turning Arbery's body over to check for weapons. The report does not say any were found.

It was self-defense, recused prosecutor says

Barnhill, the second prosecutor to step down in the case, said he did so only at Arbery's mother's behest. She claimed he had a conflict of interests, he wrote. The district attorney's son is a prosecutorial investigator with the Brunswick Judicial Circuit, from which Greg McMichael retired after serving with the Glynn County Police Department. (The Brunswick circuit's district attorney was the first to recuse herself.)Though Barnhill saw no conflict, he wrote, he agreed to step down. In doing so, he wrote an April 2 letter saying the McMichaels and William Bryan, a third man involved who is listed as a witness in the police report, engaged in "hot pursuit" and had "solid first-hand probable cause," as civilians, to detain Arbery."It appears their intent was to stop and hold this criminal suspect until law enforcement arrived. Under Georgia law, this is perfectly legal," Barnhill wrote, citing state code that says civilians can arrest someone if they have immediate knowledge of an offense or if a perpetrator is trying to flee after committing a felony.

The homeowner has gone and posted several footage of what looks like Amdmed walking through the house. But he doesn't take anything and doesn't try to be discreet.

Yes he was trespassing but I think he was more curious about the house than trying to steal something.
