Manhunt intensifies for Tennessee double murder suspect as potential sighting reported

first_imgTennessee Bureau of Investigation(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — A double murder suspect who is on the run after a string of violent crimes in Tennessee may have been spotted overnight, authorities said.As the search intensifies for Kirby Gene Wallace in a rural area of Tennessee north of Nashville, a homeowner called 911 early Wednesday to report that he had heard his dogs barking and saw a man trying to get into his porch, authorities said Wednesday.The man, who appeared to be carrying a gun, then fled into the woods, authorities said.Investigators are trying to confirm if Wallace, 53, was the man trying to enter the porch, authorities said.Another 911 call also came in overnight reporting possible suspicious activity, and since then authorities have deployed more resources and established a second search perimeter, they said.Anyone with relatives or friends in the area is asked to reach out to them and make sure they are OK, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Susan Nilan said Wednesday.Wallace is suspected of killing a 63-year-old woman after she and her husband came home from church on Sept. 23, Stewart County Sheriff Frankie Gray said, according to The Tennessean newspaper. The couple was bound and their house was set on fire, Gray said, according to the newspaper. The husband survived.Wallace is also suspected of shooting and killing a man and stealing his truck on Monday in Montgomery County, The Tennessean reported.Days earlier, a woman in her 80s was returning home from church when Wallace allegedly stopped her at her car and forced her into her home at knife-point, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said.Inside the home Wallace allegedly showed the woman a loaded rifle, threatened her and took apart her phone to keep her from calling for help, the sheriff’s office said. Wallace allegedly tied her to her bed before fleeing in her car, officials said.As the manhunt continues, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office urged residents to stay inside, keep their doors and windows locked and report any suspicious activity.Authorities on Tuesday said they can’t rule out if Wallace is getting outside help and vowed to find him “one way or another.”A $7,500 reward is available for information leading to his capture, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said.Wallace is described as having gray hair, hazel eyes and possible facial hair. He stands at 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 157 pounds, authorities said.Wallace is wanted on charges including first-degree murder, felony murder, attempted murder, aggravated arson and especially aggravated kidnapping, authorities said.Anyone with information about his location is asked to call 911.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

First Edition of Castle Bruce Family and Friends Reunion has set a benchmark for other reunions

first_img 32 Views   no discussions LocalNews First Edition of Castle Bruce Family and Friends Reunion has set a benchmark for other reunions by: – August 5, 2011 Tweet Share Sharing is caring!center_img Share Share In photo: Events Coordinator: Jacinta Bannis. Photo credit: GIS NewsEvents Coordinator of the Castle Bruce Family and Friends Reunion 2011, Ms. Jacinta Bannis says she is excited about the second edition of the Castle Bruce Family and Friends Reunion as the first edition has set a benchmark for other reunions.Ms. Bannis who was a guest on Kairi FM’s Heng Programme yesterday, told the host Mrs. Kamala Jno. Baptiste-Aaron, that although the idea was regarded as a political one, she thinks that they were politically correct in the organization of the reunion.“We feel very excited because we always call it the much talked about reunion, and we always say that we are the mother of all reunions. I think we have set a benchmark for others to follow and I think that is good. Initially when Loreen came up with the idea it was very political and stuff like that but I think that other communities are seeing it as a way of reconnecting with their persons who are overseas. So I think that they have come onboard and we were right, we were politically correct in doing what we were doing; Castle Bruce Reunion has set a benchmark for other reunions.”Ms. Bannis also said that they are hoping to launch their constituency website which will be very significant for the nationals living out of Dominica who wish to keep abreast with what is occurring in their community.“During the reunion we will be launching one our constituency website, so that persons can be informed about what is happening. We have an area that we call the Community Diaspora linkup ……because we feel that persons in the Diaspora can help with the programme to adopt or sponsor a child so we are going to look at that,” she said.The Reunion is scheduled to commence tomorrow morning with an exhibition from 10:00am followed by the Grand Opening from 4:00pm.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Virat Kohli, Rohit, Dhoni most popular cricketers globally: SEMrush Study

first_imgNEW DELHI: India skipper Virat Kohli’s popularity knows no bounds and once again it has been re-affirmed by a study which has revealed that the 31-year-old is the most popular cricketer in the world. Meanwhile, ‘The Men in Blue’ also topped the chart as far as the most popular cricket team in the world is concerned. According to a SEMrush study, Kohli has searched online an average of 16.2 lakh per month from January to June this year while the Indian cricket team was searched an average of 2.4 lakh times per month in the same time period. Other cricketers among the top-10, as per the study, were Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni, George Mackay, Josh Richards, Hardik Pandya, Sachin Tendulkar, Chris Matthews and Shreyas Iyer. From January to June 2020, each cricketer, respectively, was searched an average of 9.7, 9.4, 9.1, 7.1, 6.7, 5.4, 4.1, and 3.4 lakh times. With respect to the cricket teams, India led the chart followed by England, Australia, West Indies, Pakistan, South Africa, Bangladesh, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Ireland, Afghanistan, and Zimbabwe. Each cricket team, respectively, was searched .66, .33, .29, .23, .16, .12, .12, .09, .05, .04, and .03 lakh times per month. In addition, cricket followers across the globe were captivated by women cricketers as well. Despite not being in the top-10, Smriti Mandhana and Ellyse Perry were searched 12th and 20th most times, topping big names like Yuvraj Singh and Shikhar Dhawan. “While we are not entirely surprised by the results of our study, we are excited nonetheless. Finding that Virat Kohli is the most searched cricketer, and India, the most searched cricket team is unsurprising, what’s surprising is that women cricketers are being searched more often than a lot of top-rated men,” Fernando Angulo, Head of Communications, SEMrush SEMrush said. “Our study suggests that stereotypes of cricket as a man only sport no longer hold. There is considerable enthusiasm about women cricketers and women playing cricket. In the future, there are likely to be many more women playing cricket, and India, as the most important cricket playing nation is likely to supply many of them,” he added.

USC can still rally to achieve BCS goals

first_img“Inside the 20s” runs every other Thursday. If you would like to comment on this article, visit DailyTrojan.com or email Nick at [email protected] As the USC players pushed their way through the throng of Cardinal fans on the Stanford Stadium field after the clock hit 0:00 Saturday night, the thousands of Trojan fans who made the trek north to Palo Alto were racing their way to the parking lot as quickly as they could.Each group was most likely thinking the same thing: How could this happen?This 2012 version was supposed to be the best team in the nation, the team to put USC back atop its perch. But on that night, USC looked like anything but. The supposedly best offense in college football was beaten down, held to just 14 points and shut out in the second half. A loss like this was unheard of.Or was it?As many have correctly pointed out, slip-ups like this have become the norm for top-ranked USC teams. Very rarely do teams go undefeated, and USC, highly-touted though they may be, is no different.Think back to 2003, when the No. 3 Trojans suffered a week-four loss to California. Or in 2006, when a pair of upsets at Oregon State and UCLA knocked them out of the BCS national title game. The next season, USC was at the receiving end of one of the biggest upsets in college football history when the team lost at home to a struggling Stanford team in former Cardinal coach Jim Harbaugh’s first season.But it doesn’t stop there. In 2008, USC again lost at Oregon State, its lone blemish that season. And last season, the stunner came in Tempe when the team lost to a 6-7 Arizona State squad.And what do these teams all have in common? With the exception of last year’s team, which was ineligible to compete in a bowl game, each of the teams that suffered unexpected losses bounced back to win the Rose Bowl. And last season, the Trojans finished ranked No. 6 in the final Associated Press top-25 poll.The point of all this is simple: One loss does not have to derail a season.  Troy is in peril right now. Everyone is still in a state of shock. But the key is that the people who matter, the players and the coaches, snap out of that haze and refocus in a hurry.In the past, they have done just that. Former coach Pete Carroll’s success is well documented. But current coach Lane Kiffin, who was part of Carroll’s staff, showed resilience last season in recovering from the early season loss to the Sun Devils. After stumbling through an uninspiring win at home to lowly Arizona, the team rattled off impressive road victories at California and Notre Dame, with both its offense and defense clearly finding their stride after looking inept against Arizona State.And all this is not taking into consideration the determination of senior quarterback Matt Barkley. Already one of the all-time Trojan greats, Barkley was one of the main reasons the experts picked USC to run the table. Now, after one of the worst games of his career, it will have to be the driving force to right the ship after such a disappointing letdown.One of the cruxes going into this season was the perceived small margin for error USC had. That margin is now considerably even smaller. And with several Pac-12 teams exceeding preseason expectations, another loss seems like a more imminent threat. But the tough schedule also provides an opportunity for the team to add marquee victories to its BCS resume, as well as regain its confidence when it has been understandably shaken.Since declaring they had “unfinished business,” Barkley and his teammates have planned on having the perfect season, which included going undefeated en route to the national championship. Now, the plan has changed, but the motivation doesn’t have to. This team still has business to take care of. Every goal set out at the beginning of the season is still attainable, albeit the challenges might now be a little steeper.But the questions still linger: Will the offensive line improve? Was Barkley merely the victim of a bad night or is it something more? Can the running game re-establish itself after being rendered insignificant?Time will tell whether or not the Trojans can correct these mistakes. But fans should take comfort in knowing that the program is in the right hands to recover from such a crushing blow.And come Saturday, against a Cal team fresh off a near upset at Ohio State, we should see answers to these questions.last_img read more
