Teen Kills Family Then Goes to Get A Steak For Dinner

April 29, 2008

Nathan Dickson, who is accused of shooting his father, stepmother, stepsister and brother on Saturday morning, was arrested that evening outside friend’s, Brantley Creel, home. He had spent the day riding four-wheelers and hanging out wiht his friend after allegedly killing his family

When authorities arrived on the doorstep, the teens had just returned from getting the steaks for the cookout. They told Creel’s grandmother and her husband that four members of Dickson’s family had been killed, and Dickson didn’t know police were looking for him. In order to get the teens to return at the request of the police, Creel’s grandfather called his cell phone to say the four-wheelers needed to be returned and cleaned before it starts raining. Upon their return, Dickson was arrested.

“We were just cutting up and having fun all day,” Dickson’s 19-year old friend, Creel, told the Independent-Mail of Anderson.

Another Tool For Detectives and Forensics

April 29, 2008

A company in Georgia s trying to replace DNA testsing with a means of finding out much of the same information. It would be a great tool for detectives, forensic experts and the military. No one expects it to replace DNA analysis, and representatives of the company suggest it is not meant to.

The new method analyzes antibodies. Each person has a unique antibody bar code that can be taken from blood, saliva or other bodily fluids. Antibodies are proteins used by the body to fend off viruses or otherwise clean the system.

The scientists say an antibody profile can yield results faster and more cost-affectively and be performed in the field with minimal training. National lab administrators have licensed the technology exclusively to Identity Sciences LLC in Alpharetta, Georgia.

April 29, 2008

You heard it right. Tom Cruise and Cher met at a White House fund-raising event in the 1980s when he was 23 and she was 39. They began to date, although it was not widely noticed or reported at the time.

“I did date him [Cruise]. He was just the most adorable man you can imagine. He wasn’t into Scientology then. I don’t understand the whole Scientology thing.”

While being interviewed by Oprah, Che also added, “I was crazy about him.”

She went on to say: “He was shy. He said he felt like such a boob in school and nobody talked to him. We went on a date once for dinner in a New York restaurant and the waitress was from his old school. He told me she never talked to him back in school, but now he was recognized, he got all her attention.”

Cher suggested that it could have been a great romance, because she was crazy about him at the time.

Saddam’s Sentencing Judge Condemnes Execution Method

April 29, 2008

The judge who sentenced Saddam Hussein to death has condemned the way the dictator was put to death.
“It was uncivilized and backward,” Chief Judge Raouf Abdul Rahman told reporters on Tuesday as they awaited the start of the latest trial of Saddam’s colleagues and cohorts.

Hussein, a Sunni Muslim, was hanged for his role in those killings which took place in a mostly Shiite town just north of Baghdad. The killings were a backlash after attempted assassination attempt. During the time in which hostilities between Sunnis and Shiites were erupting, the hanging occured on December 30, 2006, when Sunnis began celebrating the religious holiday of Eid al-Adha.

A video showed Saddam being taunted by Shiites just prior to his execution, including bitter exchanges between the condemned and the Shiite witnesses. After Hussein was hanged, Shiite witnesses danced around his body, chanting celebratory slogans.
