Kevin Edson, a 25-year-old Boston man, was detained Tuesday night and the area near the Boston Marathon finish line evacuated after an unattended backpack was found.
Boston Police said a backpack was left unattended by the finish line at 6:50 p.m. There was a second bag, but that was not left by the suspect. The Boylston Street area was shut down for about 3 hours, with pedestrians and motorists asked to avoid the area.
NECN witnessed a man being put in the back of a police cruiser on Tuesday night. Boston Police said the suspect faces charges of threatening battery, disorderly conduct, possession of a hoax explosive device, threats to commit a crime, disturbing a public assembly and disturbing the peace. According to the Suffolk District Attorney, he is expected to be arraigned on those charges Wednesday in Boston Municipal Court.
“With the marathon coming, we are taking it seriously,” Boston Police Superintendent Randall Halstead said. “Our officers have been trained in looking for any kind of suspicious activity. I want to emphasize the fact that the safety of the public is utmost, and the training my officers have gone through will come to the forefront. That’s what we’re going to do to make this the best marathon in the wake of last year.”
3 People Dead after Shootings at Jewish Community Center, Village Shalom in Overland Park, Kansas (Update: Suspect Yells “Heil Hitler” While Being Arrested)(Update: Suspect ID’d as Glenn Frazier Cross, aka Glenn Miller, Former grand dragon of the Carolina Knights of the KKK)
Three people have been killed and two others injured after a shooting at Village Shalom, a Jewish Community Center, in Overland Park, Kansas. The fatal shooting took place on the eve of Passover. A 14 year-old boy and his grandfather were killed outside the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City. A female was killed a few minutes later in the parking lot at Village Shalom, an assisted living facility. Two of the victims were a grandfather and grandson who were members of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, KS.
Police will not yet call this a hate crime; as they are reporting this as a possible hate crime. Possible??? However, we will … THIS IS A HATE CRIME!!!
Authorities are investigating whether the shootings were a hate crime, Overland Park Police Chief John Douglass told reporters.
“It’s too early in the investigation to try to label it. We know it’s a vicious act of violence. Obviously, at two Jewish facilities, one might make that assumption, but we’re going to have to know more about it,” he said.
When some one asks the following before killing someone, chances are it is a hate crime … “Asking someone if you are Jewish before shooting sounds very much like a hate crime,” Rabbi Herbert Mandl, a chaplain with the Overland Park Police Department, said.
Press Conference – CNN
UPDATE I: Police take shooting suspect into custody.
Police took one man into custody at the Valley Park Elementary at 123rd and Lamar. The man was heard yelling “heil Hitler” as he was taken into custody. However, investigators say it is too early to label the incident as a hate crime.
The person of interest is described as a man in his 70s. Investigators say he is not from the area and there’s no indication that he knew the victims. His identity has not been released at this time. He is being held at the Johnson County Detention Center.
Glenn Frazier Cross, aka Glenn Miller, is a former “grand dragon” of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
Glenn Frazier Cross, 73, was arrested at 1:28 p.m. He is being held by Overland Park police on multiple charges including premeditated first-degree murder, according to online jail records.
Cross, who also goes by Glenn Miller, is a known white supremacist and known for his anti-Semitic thoughts. He is a former grand dragon of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. He is a perennial candidate for office, including running in 2006 against then-U.S. Rep. Roy Blunt, R-MO. He ran against Blunt in 2010 when Blunt was elected to the Senate.
Cross made headlines in the 2010 campaign for his racist and anti-Semitic campaign ads. Federal law required broadcast stations to air the ads even though they did not want to put such vile rantings on their airwaves.

The arrest was the latest in a string of arrests including the most recent on September 20 on a charge of driving under the influence. He was arrested on the same charge in January 2012.
It has been quite the busy week for the San Francisco 49ers and none of it has to do with football. First the allegations regarding QB Colin Kaepernick and now this.
Niners linebacker Aldon Smith was arrested Sunday at Los Angeles International Airport after claiming he had a bomb during a security screening, airport police said.
Smith, 24, made the threat after he was randomly selected for a second screening at about 2 p.m. as he went through the Transportation Security Agency checkpoint for Terminal 1.
“The suspect then became belligerent and uncooperative with the process and with the TSA agent, making a comment indicating that he was in possession of a bomb before proceeding toward the gate area,” Sgt. Karla Ortiz said in a statement.

“We are disappointed to learn of the incident today involving Aldon Smith,” said Trent Baalke, 49ers general manager. “As this is a pending legal matter and we are still gathering the pertinent facts, we will have no further comment.”
School Stabbing at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, PA …Up to 20 Hurt in Pittsburgh-Area Attack (VIDEO)(Update: 7 Victims are reported with Life Threatening Injuries)(Update: Suspect in custody)(Update: Stabbing Suspect Named …Student, Alex Hribal)
As many as 20 students were hurt when a student went on a stabbing rampage through the classrooms and hallways at the Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, PA, outside Pittsburgh on Wednesday morning. Up to 20 people have been injured because of the mass stabbing. Four to five individuals have been sent to local hospitals. Four victims are said to have serious injuries. The authorities are reporting that the suspect is in custody.
Victims, as young as 15, were taken to four Pittsburgh-area hospitals. Two were in the operating room and a third was on the way, Dr. Chris Kaufmann, a hospital trauma director, told CNN. One hospital reported that it had patients as old as 60.
The stabbings were reported at Franklin Regional High School, in the suburb of Murrysville. Ambulances swarmed the parking lot.
Stevens said that the first call for help from the school came at 7:13 a.m., shortly after the school opened its doors for the day. The situation was under control by 7:30 to 7:40, he said.
The school district website said that high school students and middle school students nearby were “secure,” and that elementary school had been canceled for the day. They cited “a critical incident” at the high school.
At least 20 students were injured Wednesday morning in a stabbing incident at Franklin Regional Senior High School in the Pittsburgh area, said Dan Stevens, an emergency management agency spokesman.
Four people were flown to hospitals by helicopter, he said.
A message on the Franklin Regional School District’s website said all of its elementary schools were closed after the incident, and “the middle school and high school students are secure.”
Authorities said a suspect was in custody
The charges might not reflect all victims, according to Westmoreland County public safety spokesman Dan Stevens. Two other students were treated for injuries that were not from being stabbed.
Mr. Peck told the court that the suspect made some statements after school officials tackled him that indicated he wanted to die.
Defense attorney Patrick Thomassey described his client as a good student with no prior criminal record and no history of addiction to drugs or alcohol. He said his client is not a loner and interacts well with other students.
Mr. Thomassey described the incident as “bizarre” and asked for a mental evaluation to determine whether his client will be competent for an April 30 preliminary hearing.
Suspect Alex Hribal has been charged with 4 counts of attempted homicide and will be tried as an adult.
The 16-year-old student accused of going on a stabbing rampage today at a Pennsylvania high school “wasn’t a real well-liked kid” and had previously made death threats, the brother of a witness told ABCNews.com.
Alex Hribal is a sophomore at Franklin Regional High School, where the bloodshed happened today, said police. He’s being held at a juvenile detention center in Westmoreland County after being charged with four counts of attempted criminal homicide, 21 counts of aggravated assault and one count of possession of a weapon on school property.
He was denied bail.

28 Year Old Sara Zamora Charged with 8 Felony Counts of Animal Cruelty in Animal Torture Sex Fetish Porn Video, ‘SOS Barn’ … Decapitating Live Chickens & Killing Rabbits While Engaging in Sex Acts
ARE YOU KIDDING ME, ARE THERE NO LEVELS TO HUMAN DEPRAVITY?
Just when you thought you had heard it all … 28 year old Miami woman, Sara Zamora, was charged with eight counts of animal cruelty for her participation in an animal torture sex fetish video. Zamora took part in decapitating live chickens and killing rabbits while engaging in sex acts during the filming of an animal torture video, ‘SOS barn’. The animal torture/sex video was shot at the home of Adam Redford. This low life was already on probation for a similar animal cruelty case in Lee County, FL last year. It is hard to imagine that there is a market for such crap, but there must be more depraved individuals among us than we ever thought. If convicted, Zamora can potentially face up to five years in prison for each count of animal cruelty.

Sara Zamora, 28, was arrested Friday on eight felony counts of animal cruelty for her feature role in a video called “SOS Barn” that a Miami-Dade police arrest report described in gory, stomach-turning detail.
“The chicken is enduring extreme pain and suffering during this process,” according to the arrest report.
The video clips — filmed for a twisted animal torture genre called “crush” — depicted her and other porn actresses “torturing and killing a wide variety of animals, including chickens, rabbits and more for the sexual gratification of its viewers,” according to police.
The barnyard snuff video was filmed at the South Miami-Dade home of Adam Redford, according to the police report, who is listed as a co-defendant. He is already on probation for a similar animal cruelty case in Lee County last year but had not been charged in the Miami-Dade case as of Friday night.
Police describe parts of this unthinkable, disgusting video and surprise, surprise … Sara Zamora has a laundry list of past criminal offenses.
In one clip of “SOS Barn,” police said Zamora is seen groping a man’s genitals with one hand while cutting a chicken’s neck with hedge clippers with her other hand, the Herald reported. She also karate-chopped the necks of several rabbits and admitted to killing them.
Videos that depict animal torture and death is illegal under Florida law.
Police arrested Zamora while she was already in jail for failing a probation drug test, according to the Herald. She was on probation for a laundry list of other offenses including grand theft with a firearm, credit card fraud and cocaine possession. She would have been released Friday had it not been for the “fickle finger of fate,” said defense attorney Theodore Mastos, according to the Herald.
