Private Detective: Thief Steals From Louisville Charity Offices

A bold thief wandered the halls of the Kosair Charities building in Louisville Tuesday afternoon, stealing wallets, credit cards and cash.

Surveillance video captured images of the suspect. He dressed to blend in, wearing khakis, a button down shirt and loafers. He was carrying a messenger bag and at one point appeared to talk on a cell phone. Investigators say everyone who saw him assumed he belonged in the building. The man went in and out of offices, taking items. He even walked right into the Louisville Police Foundation office.

“The executive director was having a meeting with an officer in uniform, and he walked right by there and nobody thought anything of it,” Stephanie Smith said.

Smith works in the building for Kosair Charities and had her wallet stolen.

“You feel victimized,” she said. “My credit cards and ID and everything was in there.”

Wrongful Death Police Make Third Arrest in Murder of 19 Year Old

Police have arrested a third man in connection with the murder of a Lexington 19-year-old.

Officers took Sayvon A. Thompson, 20, into custody late Tuesday night. He faces a murder (complicity) charge in connection with the shooting death of 19-year-old Jeffrey Adams.

Investigators say Thompson was part of a group that used a drug deal to lure Adams to an apartment complex on McCullough Drive, and then shot him to death on Oct. 17. Police have also arrested and charged Nathan Miller, 19, along with a juvenile in the case.

Private Detective: Body Parts Found in Two Rivers Do Not Appear to Be Related

Two gruesome discoveries in two days along two rivers in Northern Kentucky do not appear to be related.

A human arm and a foot were found about 24 hours apart, but police say it’s a strange coincidence.

“It’s not unusual to find something unusual on the river bank, but that’s a little bit more unusual than what you usually see,” says Carrollton Mayor Gene McMurry.

Inside a 2011 Nike shoe was a sock, covering a deteriorating human foot. Mayor McMurray lives just a few houses down from where the body part washed ashore.

“I guess it’s just fortunate that people are nosy enough when they picked that shoe up to look at it and there’s a bone in there,” says McMurry.

Adding to the mystery, a day earlier, state police say a severed human arm was found along the Kentucky River in neighboring Henry County. Though it’s strange timing, as of now, Carrollton Police say the two discoveries do not appear to be linked.

The severed arm, police say, also still had flesh attached, while the foot did not. Investigators say they are looking through missing person cases, as they worked to identify the body parts and figure out how they wound up in nearby Northern Kentucky Rivers.

Wrongful Death New Info in Death of 19 Year Old Lexington Man

New information has been released about the death of a 19-year-old gunned down in Lexington’s Winburn neighborhood.

Jeffery Adams was shot and killed earlier this month. One of the men charged in connection with the case was in court this morning. 19-year-old Nathan Miller along with a juvenile are charged with complicity to commit murder. Investigators say the two were among the people who use a drug deal to lure Adams to an apartment on McCullough drive.

http://liarcatchers.com/wrongful_death.html

During Miller’s preliminary hearing this morning Detective Franz Wolff with the Lexington Police Department told the court that the group of men used a cellphone that belonged to a friend of Adams, leading Adams to believe his friend was the one texting him.

“It would have not been known by the victim that this info was coming from the juvenile co-defendant,” says Det. Wolff.

The detective said the group of four, a juvenile, Miller, Sayvon Thompson and another unidentified person arrived before Adams. The juvenile told police that Miller was hiding, waiting for Adams.

“Nathan Miller was armed with a gun and was sitting in the stairwell between the floors of the apartment building waiting on the victim to arrive,” says Det. Wolff

Police say at least 2 shots were fired at Adams killing him but it isn’t clear who fired those shots. Miller has said he used to live at the apartment complex where this happened but had recently moved to Georgetown and that’s where he was when Adams was killed.

Private Detective: Two Body Parts Found Along Rivers in Northern Kentucky

Two gruesome discoveries in two days. A human arm and a foot found about 24 hours apart, both along rivers in northern Kentucky. But, police say they think it’s just a strange coincidence.

The human leg was found along the Ohio River in Carrollton. Investigators say the two cases do not appear to be connected. Now, they’re just trying to identify the remains and figure out how they got here.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

The first discovery was made Friday afternoon along the Kentucky River in Henry County. State police say a severed human arm washed up onto a river bank. A search of the water and the surrounding area turned up no other remains.

A little more than 24 hours later in Carroll County, police say a man walking a bank of the Ohio River behind his home found what appears to be a 2011 man’s Nike shoe. Inside was a sock, covering a human foot.

According to investigators, the arm had flesh and the foot did not.

“This could be possibly, maybe somebody that was on a boat or a barge. We have a lot of barge traffic that comes through. It could be someone who drowned in the water. It could be a lot of things. At this point we don’t know,” said Carrollton Police Officer Tim Gividen.

Carrollton Police are looking over their missing persons cases. They’ve also contacted other agencies in Kentucky and in Ohio.

Pedophile Tracking Troy, NY Man Indicted On Several Counts

A man who failed to show up last spring for sentencing in a domestic violence case has been named in a 16-count indictment charging him with sexually abusing a girl when she was 14 and 15 years old.

Jovan Taylor, 30, of Fifth Ave. was indicted Friday on three counts each of use of a child in a sexual performance and promoting a sexual performance by a child, nine counts of possessing a sexual performance by a child and a count of endangering the welfare of a child, according to the indictments.

http://liarcatchers.com/pedophile_tracking.html

His arraignment is pending.

The indictment alleges Taylor sexually abused the girl between 2011 and 2012 at his Fifth Avenue home.

In August 2012, Taylor was charged with menacing, harassment, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal contempt and endangering the welfare of a child after a reported domestic incident at his Fifth Avenue home, according to police records.

Authorities did not say whether the cases are connected or involve the same girl.

Taylor later pleaded guilty to criminal contempt in that case, but was a no-show at his April sentencing, prosecutors said.

Taylor’s jail or bail status could not be immediately determined.

Private Detective: Woman Who Faked Disappearance at North Myrtle Beach Sentenced to Prison

A Gaston County woman whose “disappearance” at North Myrtle Beach last summer touched off a three-day Coast Guard and police search has been sentenced to at least nine years in prison after a conviction on a number of charges.

Amy Robinson, 43, pleaded guilty Tuesday in a Mecklenburg County courtroom to identity theft, being a habitual felon, and other offenses.

Judge Yvonne Mims Evans sentenced Robinson to between nine years and 11 years 10 months in prison.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

Robinson was due in court last July in Mecklenburg County on identity theft and other charges, but she was reported missing July 5 by her husband, Paul David Arrington. He told authorities that he saw his wife on the beach and then could not find her after leaving and returning a few minutes later.

Under the theory that Amy Robinson might have entered the water and drowned, the Coast Guard and other emergency organizations began searching for her. After a few days, authorities said they were convinced that the woman had not drowned and was not missing.

Amy Robinson turned herself in to Mecklenburg County authorities a few days later, and Paul David Arrington was charged by South Carolina authorities in connection with the missing-person report.

In court Tuesday, Amy Robinson pleaded guilty to identity theft, forgery, uttering a forged instrument, five counts of obtaining property by false pretense, and being a habitual felon.

She had been scheduled for trial Nov. 3, but court officials said Robinson indicated this week that she would plead guilty.

According to prosecutors,. Robinson befriended the identity theft victim in summer 2012. The friend loaned Robinson money but eventually told the suspect that she would not give her any more money. Prosecutors alleged that Robinson then forged one of the victim’s checks and cashed it for $500. Robinson also was accused of paying credit card and utility bills and making purchases on Amazon.com, using bank information of the friend.

Thousands of dollars were spent in those transactions, prosecutors said.

Court records show Robinson had previous convictions for obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and multiple counts of obtaining property by false pretenses.
