Homicides in 2018 One Fewer Than in 2017

Homicides in 2018 One Fewer Than in 2017

CLEVELAND, OH — Just before the clock struck midnight to close out 2018, Cleveland reached its 129th homicide. Three people were killed 15 minutes before the end of the year outside a New Year’s Eve party at an Air BnB. The total of 129 killings is one fewer than the total in 2017.

The Cuyohoga County Medical Examiner and Cleveland police shared the grim total. To compare, there were 130 homicides in 2017 and 135 in 2016. The city has exceeded 100 homicides for the last seven years. This is the first time this has occurred since a 42-year stretch ended in 1996. The death toll at that time was high due to the war on drugs.

Out of the 129 2018 homicides, 114 people (88%) died due to gunfire. This figure is according to police records and the medical examiner.

Five deaths occurred during mass shootings. One mass shooting was outside a bar after a music video shoot. Six were shot in that incident. Another incident happened at a downtown strip club. Eight people were shot. The triple-homicide that occurred on New Year’s Eve is also considered a mass shooting. Two others were shot. However, they survived.

A full list of all of the victims for 2018 can be found here. The list includes 2-year-old Lorenzo Ealom. He was killed after ingesting drugs (cocaine, suboxone, and Benedryl). On the older side of the age range, a burglar beat 94-year-old Eucebia Garcia Gutierrez to death while she slept.

The homicide count may change due to a couple factors. One is that the Cuyohoga County Medical Examiner may rule on several questionable deaths. The number could rise if the medical examiner rules some of those deaths homicides.

Fake News?!

Fake News?!

SAN ANTONIO- TX. The city was recently hit with a shock! Coincidentally, after someone posted a new and quite controversial Holocaust exhibit, people didn’t respond positively. The sign stated two things: MAGA (Make America Great Again) and #FakeNews.

Even Donald Trump, himself, said it was fake news. Many of the community stated that the sign was a denial of the historic genocide.

A groundskeeper originally discovered the sign. The general public’s response has not been a positive one. A lot of people believe that this is a clear sign of prejudice but others refuse to acknowledge that this hatred is still very evident in the world.

Their holocaust museum was all but a shock. The museum director made a public statement. She doesn’t think everyone sees the sign as a clear connection to the modern prejudicial tendencies. The politics of the situation became tattered and broken by standards the declining equal state of our country.

Unfortunately, someone posted the sign reading “Fake News” and MAGA right by the entrance of the exhibit. Although responding puts Donald Trump in a bad light, he still attempted to negate the shocking sign.

After that, police discovered the sign early Tuesday morning the investigation began. Sadly, the chief officer of the investigation doesn’t consider the crime a hate crime, but claims it is only political advocacy.

Donald Trump, by poorly responding, is against these moments of habitual negation, and how does that make you feel? In Some people in the community are outraged, otherwise, it’s just people responding to allegations. So what do you think?

Men Arrested in Connection to 2015 Murder

Men Arrested in Connection to 2015 Murder

CLEVELAND, OH: On Saturday, police issued a warrant for the arrest of three men charged in the fatal shooting of California man, Nicholas Rowe, in November of 2015.

 

The men: Walter Watkins, 22, Nicho Fulton, 26, and David Dillworth, 23 – all from Ohio.

 

The Crime

According to court records, the men allegedly buried Rowe back in 2015. Officials found his body in the back of an abandoned home. three feet underground, beneath twenty pounds of concrete. He suffered several gunshot wounds to his head. Police spotted a handgun in the yard of the home, alerting to suspicious activity. Then, they brought a cadaver dog to the home to help search for the body.

 

Rowe – also known as Joshua Luckey – was 41 years old. He was from Chula Vista, California. Apparently, Rowe frequently flew to Cleveland to conduct drug deals. He was meeting with an associate on his trip that November, and supposedly paid the associate over 8 grand.

 

After a couple of days, Rowe’s friends and family alerted the associate that he was missing. Officials used a GPS tracking device on Rowe’s phone, which led them to his abandoned car. They found broken windows and blood inside the car. When the associate returned to the scene the next day, he called police. An officer noticed a disturbance in the backyard of the home, where they later discovered the body.

 

Arrests

Officials charged a fourth man, Andrew Watkins, age 23, with aggravated murder for the case back in March.  After his arrest, he pleaded not guilty to the charges. He is waiting on a trial date. Now, Fulton is on probation for the illegal possession of a gun in 2017. Dillworth was also sentenced to a probation period back in 2017, for an attempted breaking and entering.

 

However, it is unclear what is in store for these other men allegedly involved as the case unfolds.

 

Truck Drivers Saving Lives – 35 Years Later

Truck Drivers Saving Lives – 35 Years Later

The Accident

This November marks the 35th anniversary of a young 17-year old woman’s horrific accident on Interstate 40 in Tennessee. That day, 10 semi-truck drivers came together to help save her life. None of them were medically trained. However, they followed their instincts to save precious time and keep the woman calm and alert before medical personnel arrived.

 

The woman’s name was Gracie Parker (now Gracie Rosenberger). The lead trucker of the group that day noticed her speed past and then slump over the steering wheel. Gracie’s car swerved back and forth before finally crashing. The lead trucker notified others of the dangerous driving activity. The drivers created a barricade so other drivers could not go through and possibly get hurt. When her car crashed, it flew and flipped before landing in the bed of a creek. They noticed it there, burning. The truckers all pulled over, called for help, and ran to her with fire extinguishers.

 

They put out the fire. Noticing her horrific wounds, the drivers asked her questions to keep her alert. They provided comfort and security while waiting for help to arrive. These truck driver heroes helped prevent worse injuries for Gracie and got her the help she needed.

 

Giving Back

Gracie has faced gruesome medical treatments and struggles since the accident. She’s had 80 operations, both legs amputated, and other treatments. But, despite the injuries she faced, she and her husband, Peter Rosenberger, have taken their struggles and used them for good.

 

Peter leads the organization Standing With Hope, hosts a radio show for caregivers, and is the author of the book Hope for the Caregiver. The two collaborated to write Gracie’s story in a book entitled Gracie Standing With Hope. Gracie spends time helping other amputees and people with disabilities.

 

The truck drivers gave their hearts and their help that day. Now, Gracie and Peter give theirs. Without those 10 truckers’ help that day 35 years ago, who knows what might have happened?
