  2. Witness to a killing: Rochester teen said 'I dare you,' and fellow motorist pulled trigger A Rochester teen dared an armed man to shoot him after the two were involved in a minor collision, according to a friend who was in the teen's car and saw the fatal shooting. Muhammed Rahim, 17, of Rochester, was shot and killed about 8:20 a.m. Sunday at East River Road and 31st Street NE. A 25-year-old Rochester man with a permit to carry a firearm was arrested and remains jailed on suspicion of second-degree murder. The man, who has not been charged, told police that he was acting in self-defense. Two of the three passengers with Rahim gave on-camera interviews at the scene to KTTC-TV in Rochester and detailed how the confrontation between the two drivers played out. "[Rahim] got out and confronted him," said Noah Dukart. "The guy who we hit wanted to fight. My friend got in his face, and then the guy we hit pulled a gun out, and then my friend said, 'I dare you,' and he shot him right in the heart, and I watched him bleed out."

  3. Thirteen malnourished siblings rescued from California house after 17-year-old girl escapes: parents charged Thirteen siblings, ranging in age from 2 to 29, were rescued by police in California from a house where some of them had been chained to beds, and their parents have been charged with torture, officials said on Monday. Police made the discovery after a 17-year-old girl escaped the house in Perris, about 70 miles (113 km) east of Los Angeles, and used a cellular phone she had found in the house to call them, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement released online. “Deputies located what they believed to be 12 children inside the house, but were shocked to discover that seven of them were actually adults,” police said in a statement. “The victims appeared to be malnourished and very dirty.” The girl, who officers had initially thought was about 10 years old, contacted police on Sunday after escaping. The children’s parents, David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, were arrested and each charged with nine counts of torture and 10 counts of child endangerment. They were ordered held on $9 million bail, police said. Click on the link for the full article

    Brand new truck stuck, frozen in mud after Illegal four-wheeling It’s about as stuck as stuck can be: a couple of guys testing out a new four-wheel drive Chevy drove over a frozen pond and ended up stuck in sand, ice, and mud on Chouteau Island, just north of Interstate 270 in Madison County, Illinois. Things got even worse. “It’s permafrost,” Opp said. “It was frozen hard enough that it held him up for a while then it just collapsed in, which what I’d expect him to do.” The owner yelled from the passenger seat for his friend to turn back, he said. They were nearly off of the pond when the ice started giving way. The truck’s owner then rented a backhoe to try to fish out his truck. As he got close, an unseen pocket of ice, sand, and mud gave way and down went the backhoe, he said. Both vehicles remained frozen stuck some two to three feet deep in a spot that will be six to seven feet underwater come spring. Click on the link for the full article
