The Boston Police Department is advising residents to be aware of an ongoing phone extortion scam. In some cases, victims have received a phone call by an individual impersonating their child or loved one. The imposter will call, sounding very upset, claiming to have been involved in a motor vehicle accident which resulted in injuries to the other party involved and that they have been arrested on charges of Operating Under the Influence. The caller is able to provide sufficient details and context to make the scenario believable. The victim is then contacted or directed to contact an individual claiming to be an appointed public defense attorney seeking to obtain bail money for their loved one’s release. In one recent instance, the victim was told one sum only to be re-contacted by the fake attorney who informed the victim that a person in the other vehicle had now been pronounced deceased and that the bail amount had tripled. In truth, there was no accident and no one had been injured or arrested.

Melissa Ellison, called Missy, was 20-years-old.
It was Dec. 28, 1987. Missy was living in mobile home off Coljean Road in Taylor’s Trailer Park, which was owned by her parents. She had recently separated from her husband and had invited a friend and the friend’s boyfriend to move in with her to help with the bills.
Around 11:30 p.m., Missy spoke to her mother on the phone. Missy told her mother she was scared, but she wouldn’t say why.
By 4 a.m., Missy was found dead. She was beaten to death with a charred log taken from the fireplace, which was then left by the front door.
Missy’s roommate told officers she woke up because she heard Missy’s baby, Casie, crying.
Why was little Casie on the couch? Whose vehicle had left tire tracks outside the home? There were so many questions investigators worked to find answers to.
There is another strange thing that stands out to Missy’s family. They say when they were asked to look at the scene and see if anything was out of place, they noticed two pictures from her mantle were missing. Both were pictures of Missy at…
Research shows that Indigenous women and girls are more likely to experience violence compared to women of other ethnicities, but it’s a crisis that’s difficult to grasp because no one knows exactly how many have been taken or killed. With no comprehensive method for tracking cases, the website Justice for Native Women is a grassroots initiative to record these victims across the United States and Canada.
The work of Justice for Native Women, along with federal data sources, helped a…
A mammal native to South America’s savannas, the maned wolf now lives in the Amazon Rainforest. That’s the finding of a recent study by researchers in the Brazilian states of Mato Grosso, Amazonas and Rondônia, which recorded 22 sightings of maned wolves in the Amazon over the past two decades. Ten were in new territory, effectively widening the animals’ normal geographic distribution by more than 20,000 square miles.
Historically, the Amazonian biome marks the northern boundary of the maned wolf’s…
The Ohio State Highway Patrol says it’s important to be aware of the consequences of drunk and drugged driving.
December is National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month, an effort to highlight what authorities say is a notable increase in the number of crashes involving impaired drivers.

That represents 29 percent of all drunk driving deaths of that year.
With that in mind, the…

The NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee announced today the relocation of 13 predetermined preliminary round sites for the 2021 Division I Men’s Basketball Championship.
In recent weeks, the Division I Men’s Basketball Committee has engaged in a thorough contingency planning process to determine the most effective way to conduct a safe and healthy March Madness for all participants for the 2021 championship. Through these discussions, it became apparent to the committee that conducting the championship at 13 preliminary round sites spread throughout the country would be very difficult to execute in the current pandemic environment. The committee has decided the championship should be held in a single geographic area to enhance the safety and well-being of the event.
As a result, NCAA staff are in preliminary talks with the State of Indiana and the city of Indianapolis to potentially host the 68-team tournament around the metropolitan area during the coordinated dates in March and April. Indianapolis was already slated to host the Men’s Final Four from April 3-5, 2021.
“My committee colleagues and I did not come lightly to the difficult decision to relocate the preliminary rounds of the 2021 tournament, as we understand the disappointment 13 communities will feel to miss out on being part of March Madness next year,” said Mitch Barnhart, chair of the Division I Men’s Basketball Committee and University of Kentucky athletics director. “With the University of Kentucky slated to host first- and second-round games in March, this is something that directly impacts our school and community, so we certainly share in their regret. The committee and staff deeply appreciate the efforts…
Our country has two main political parties-Democrat & Republican. Each would like to make you think they are different then the other. Put the reality of it is that both are exactly the same. Both parties want control and will do anything to get it. They spin every issue to suit their purpose. When Bill Clinton was President the Republicans wanted you to think he should be removed from office for having an affair with an intern. The Democrats wanted you think it was no big deal and not an Impeachable offense. Recently the Democrats wanted you think every single thing President Trump did was Impeachable, while the Republicans were just the opposite. And the main stream media is no help. If you turn CNN you think the President is the worst thing since Hitler. If you turn Fox you think the President is the best thing since the Rubix Cube. And now that Biden is in office it will all reverse and CNN will have nothing but good things to say about the President and Fox will only say bad things about him. So with all of this double standard who is right? What is the actual truth? Well the answer is there is no truth and no one is right. They all are lying. They all just want to move their view points to you so you will vote their way. In getting you to vote their way they hope to…
