Accident Reconstruction Driver of Semi Fell Asleep

Frankfort officials say the driver of a semi truck that was hauling cattle Tuesday morning when it overturned on Interstate 64 in Frankfort told them he fell asleep at the wheel.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office says the driver and his wife were driving the truck from Virginia to Kansas when the man fell asleep and went off the road between mile marker 52 and exit 53, letting some cattle loose.

Both him and the woman are OK.

The semi was hauling 110 head of cattle and 15 of those got out. Three cows were killed by two separate drivers who hopped the median, hitting and killing the animals.

First responders worked to capture the loose cattle.

Officials said a state veterinarian was called to the scene and if any cattle need to be euthanized, that will be handled humanely. Local farmers were also on scene helping with equipment and loading the cattle back into the truck, officials said.

The accident happened shortly before 6:00 a.m. and both directions of I-64 were initially shut down. The eastbound lanes reopened at 8 a.m. and one of the westbound lanes had reopened by 10:30 a.m.

Franklin County Fire Department, EMA and KYTC also responded to the scene.

Missing Person Teen Abduction in San Andreas, CA Was a Hoax

Authorities have determined an abduction reported Monday morning in San Andreas in Calaveras County was fabricated.

An Amber Alert was issued by the California Highway Patrol for a 14-year-old boy who was reportedly forced into a white van by two individuals at a San Andreas convenience store. The family of the alleged kidnapped victim also made a missing person’s report, the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office said.

Early Monday evening, the sheriff’s office reported the teen had been found by Stockton police in Stockton and was being questioned.

After an investigation, the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office stated later on Monday night that the abduction was a hoax and one juvenile has been placed into custody with Calaveras County juvenile probation.

“During the investigation which included an extensive deployment of resources, Sheriff Detectives obtained evidence that the abduction claim had been fabricated,” the sheriff’s office stated in a press release.

Due to the juvenile being a minor, the teen’s name is not being reported.

Identity Theft Ring Uncovered in Pima County, AZ

An elaborate identity theft ring uncovered in Pima County, law enforcement took down some of its members, but the investigation is growing.

Meantime, the arrests haven’t solved one victim’s problems. His information is seemingly spread far and wide. To protect what privacy he has left, he’s asked us not to identify him.

It all started with the theft of a backpack, two months ago to the day. The victim was knocked out cold while visiting his sister at an Ina Rd. apartment.

“Someone, something, hit me. But whoever it was was like a linebacker. Because I flew,” he said.

http://liarcatchers.com/identity_theft_investigation.html

When he came to, his belongings were gone.

He was out some cash, and some personal information. He reported the attack to the sheriff’s department.

A few days later, money started disappearing from his bank account in the form of fraudulent checks.

“This is not your average bear, the more I look at it, and the more sophisticated it is. This is not somebody who just decided to steal my backpack or to steal your checkbook, and start taking money out of your account, they’re good at it, their checks are as good as my own checks, I mean they’re good enough to clear the bank,” the victim said.

Some of them were small, 50 dollars. Others, over a thousand. His total loss, he says, is between 15 and 20 thousand dollars.

“No one should have all this stress in their lives, it’s just ridiculous,” he said.

Several suspects were seen in security video in the stores where those checks were used.

“At this point we have identified at least four, and we know of at least five victims. But we have the expectation that that number may grow,” Said Deputy tom Peine with the Pima County Sheriff’s Department.

Further investigation resulted in more suspects, and more evidence.

“It starts as one thing as one crime, and then it mushrooms into all these other aspects that weren’t visible at first,” said Peine.

Arrests were made, but for the victim, his struggles are not over. “My life’s been impacted to the point where I feel like I’m being hunted,” he said.

Identity theft often starts with mail theft. So watch your mailboxes, and report this type of activity to the Postal Inspector, or to local law enforcement.

Thieves often get a hold of addresses and credit card information this way, and use it to make fraudulent checks.

Pedophile Tracking Prescott Valley, AZ Man Accused of Molesting and Making Videos of Child

A 69-year-old Prescott Valley man is accused of molesting a female child for years and recording videos of the alleged sexual encounters, according to an email from Sgt. Scott Stebbins with the Prescott Valley Police Dept.

Clarence Auburn Jones, 69, was arrested Nov. 4 on charges of sexual exploitation of a minor and molestation of a child. The abuse took place from 2005 to 2012, according to police.

Investigators said the abuse started when the victim was 10 years old and continued for seven years until she moved out of state.

http://liarcatchers.com/pedophile_tracking.html

In 2012, a friend of the victim reported her concerns that the girl had been molested by Jones, but an investigation at that time by Child Protective Services and police could not substantiate the allegation.

Investigators were hindered by the fact that the victim had moved to another state and had told authorities in that state she was not a victim of the alleged crime.

The case was reopened recently after police received additional information that Jones was in possession of child pornography.

Detectives obtained a search warrant and found Jones had an extensive collection of child pornography downloaded from the Internet as well as sexually graphic videos he had made of himself with the child victim.

Detectives contacted the victim again, who is now 19 years old.

She was cooperative and stated she was emotionally relieved that the investigation was moving forward.
