Former Student Owen Labrie at St. Paul’s School Acquitted of Felony Sexual Assault … Convicted on Three Counts of Misdemeanor Sexual Assault (VIDEO)
One more “Senior Salute” to women for the St. Paul’s Prep School …
Owen Labrie, a former student at the prestigious New England prep-school, The St. Paul’s School in Concord, NH, has been found not guilty and acquitted of the three felony rape charges and of misdemeanor simple assault. Each of the felony charges could have carried uo to 20 years in prison. However, Labrie was convicted on three counts of misdemeanor sexual assault, endangering the welfare of a child and a felony count of using a computer to seduce a minor under 16, which requires him to register as a sex offender. Labrie was originally accused of raping the girl in May 2014 at their boarding academy in what Prosecutors said he did it as part of a ritual called the “Senior Salute,” in which graduating seniors try to have sex with underclassmen. WOW, what a special tradition from a prep-school that cost over $55,000 a year to attend. One would think that maybe with this type of education, the St Pal School could teach a little character and crack down on this disgusting tradition.
Both the victim and Lebrie cried during the reading of the verdict.
A former New Hampshire prep school student accused of raping a freshman girl as part of a campus tradition was acquitted Friday of the most serious charges against him.
Owen Labrie, now 19, was cleared of three counts of felony sexual assault, each of which carried up to 20 years in prison. He was convicted of misdemeanor sexual assault and a separate felony charge that carries up to seven years.
Labrie sobbed in court as the verdict — reached by a jury of three women and nine men — was read.
He was accused of raping the girl in May 2014 at their boarding academy, the prestigious St. Paul’s School in Concord. Prosecutors said he did it as part of a ritual called the “Senior Salute,” in which graduating seniors try to have sex with underclassmen.
Labrie will face sentencing on Oct. 29, and is out on $15,000 bail in the meantime. He must adhere to a 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. curfew and turn over his passport.
Owen Labrie, of Vermont, had received a full scholarship to Harvard, which was put on hold, and had planned to go to divinity school after graduating from college. Ain’t that something. I guess he can kiss Harvard goodbye and have fun the rest of his life as a registered sex offender.

49 Year Old David Conley Charged with Capital Murder after 8 People Found Dead in a Northwest Harris County, TX Home
So where is the “Black Lives Matter” crowd with this callous and heinous loss of life?
49 year old David Conley has been arrested and charged with capital murder after 8 people were found dead in a northwest Harris County, Texas home. The murder victims found Saturday night in the Houston area home were five children and three adults. Conley was taken into custody after surrendering to authorities after a stand off with police following their call to the residence for a welfare check. According to Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Thomas Gilliland, it was not yet known whether Conley is related to the victims, or how they died. As reported at NBC News, previous records show Conley has faced various misdemeanor and felony records dating back to 1999.
Press conference from Harris County Sheriff’s office
David Conley has been charged with capital murder after eight people were found dead in a northwest Harris County home.
Conley was arrested Saturday evening after a standoff with police in the 2200 block of Falling Oaks, not far from Veterans Memorial and Fallbrook Drive, after Harris County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the home for a welfare check.
After the standoff, deputies found five children and three adults dead inside the home.
The sheriff’s office will be holding a 3 p.m. press conference to provide more information.
Gilliland said while waiting for a High Risk Operations Unit to arrive at the scene, deputies spotted the body of a juvenile through a window. Four deputies then forced their way into the home, prompting the 49-year-old male suspect inside to begin shooting. Deputies pulled back and waited for the operations unit to arrive.
Deputies pulled back, and the man surrendered about an hour later.
“At this time we have what appears to be five children and three adults,” Gilliland said. “Ages and genders we do not have, and cause of death we do not have. The medical examiner will have to determine a cause of death.”
The relationship between the suspect and unidentified victims wasn’t immediately known. No further details were released.
8 Year Old Madyson Middleton Was Lured to 15 Year Old Suspect’s Apartment Where She Was Raped, Strangled and Murdered
Oh dear God, Why do things like this happen to our precious children?
As if this story could not get any worse and heartbreaking. It is being reported that 8 year old Madyson Middleton, who went missing on Sunday, July 26 in Santa Cruz, CA and whose body was found later that day was raped and strangled prior to her body being hid in a trash dumpster. According to police, the girl was lured into the teen’s apartment on Sunday night where investigators found evidence that the girl was murdered inside the upstairs apartment before her body was carried down into the first floor garage then placed into a recycling bin.
Madyson Middleton, Rest in Peace
In a press conference on Monday Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel said, ”It appears that she was lured to the suspect’s apartment willingly. Additionally, we’ve determined that Maddy was murdered inside of the suspect’s apartment. She was then carried downstairs to the recycle bin.” What is wrong with people, some crimes just are more heinous than others. And its not “IF” the teen who committed this vile act could be tried as an adult, it is “WHEN” this animal is tried as an adult for this sick crime. Sorry, this 15 year old has zero hope and deserves no second chances to prey upon innocent children.
Sources say that the 8-year-old girl who vanished from her Santa Cruz apartment complex Sunday night was raped and strangled before her body was found inside a recycling bin.
Madyson Middleton’s body was discovered inside of a dumpster at the Tannery Arts Center by one of the department’s detectives Monday night. Police are not sure how long the body was inside the dumpster.
“At approximately 7:55 p.m., and this is extraordinarily heartbreaking news that I’m about to give to you, our detectives discovered the body of a young female inside of a dumpster at the complex located behind me,” said Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel on Monday night.
The mood turned hostile to outsiders as residents of the Tannery Arts Center, a unique artists’ community on the outskirts of this small beach town, came to grips with the fact that this may have been an inside job.
During a news conference on Tuesday, Police Chief Kevin Vogel told reporters that the little girl was probably dead even before she was reported missing Sunday evening.
“It appears that she was lured to the suspect’s apartment willingly,” said Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel. “Additionally, we’ve determined that Maddy was murdered inside of the suspect’s apartment. She was then carried downstairs to the recycle bin.”
Police believe all of this happened in less than an hour, right after she disappeared while riding her scooter and before police were called Sunday evening.

AMBER ALERT Issued for 21 Month Old Lonzie Barton Missing Since 7/24/15 in Jacksonville, FL (Update: Boyfriend William Ebron Arrested & Charged with Child Neglect)(Amber Alert Canceled, Boy Presumded Dead)
An AMBER ALERT has been issued for 21 month old Lonzie Barton who has been missing since Friday, July 24, 2015 in Jacksonville, Florida. According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s office, Lonzie Barton reportedly disappeared in an alleged car jacking Friday morning. Deputies said Lonzie was last seen at the Ravenwood Apartments at 8030 Old Kings Road South, wearing only a diaper.
The missing toddler was being watched by the mothers boyfriend while she was at work. Ut-oh, here we go again. The boyfriend, William Ebron, claims that he put the boy in the car, but when he came back to the vehicle after running back into the apartment, it was gone. The car was recovered 15 to 20 minutes later a short distance from the apartment complex and Lonzie was nowhere to be found. WHO IS BUYING THIS STORY?
Missing: Lonzie Barton
The Jacksonville Sheriff said they could not be more worried about Lonzie Barton, the 21-month-old who disappeared in an alleged car jacking early Friday morning.
Dozens of deputies spent Friday searching the Jacksonville neighborhood where 21-month-old Lonzie Barton was last seen.
“We are looking anywhere that we can look to find this child, the longer this goes on that we cannot find this child, the worse the outcome is going to be,” said Jacksonville Sheriff Chief Tom Hackney.
Hackney said the boy was being watched by his mother’s boyfriend while she was at work.
The boyfriend, William Ebron Junior, told police he put Lonzie and his 5-year-old sister in his car to go pick the mother up from work but had to run up to the apartment.
Ebron said when he went downstairs he saw his car being driven away with Lonzie inside of it.
Lonzie Barton is almost two years in age, has blond hair and blue eyes, and weighs about 20 pounds. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at 904-630-0500.
It has been one full day since an Amber Alert was issued Friday morning and police began searching for 21-month-old Lonzie Barton.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is searching for the child, who was last seen outside a unit at the Ravenwood apartment complex on South Old Kings Road about 2:20 a.m. Nearly two hours later, police issued an alert for Lonzie, who was believed to be taken during a car theft.
According to Chief Tom Hackney, the mother’s boyfriend, 32-year-old William Ebron, was getting ready to pick up the mother, 25-year-old Lonna Lauramore, from work at Wacko’s Gentlemen’s Club around 2 a.m. He gathered Lonzie and his 5-year-old sister into an orange 1995 Honda Civic.
Friday night police scaled back the search for the evening but as many as 60 detectives are expected to help pick up the search again Saturday morning.
Authorities say a caregiver for a missing Jacksonville toddler has been lying to investigators about the child’s disappearance.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office told reporters Saturday that 32-year-old William Ebron had been arrested and charged with two counts of child neglect.
Chief Tom Hackney said investigators believe Ebron was lying about the disappearance of his girlfriend’s son, 21-month-old Lonzie Barton.
The car was recovered 15 to 20 minutes later a short distance from the apartment complex and Lonzie was nowhere to be found.
Court records show Lonzie’s mother and Ebron had a rocky relationship. Just two weeks ago she filed a third domestic violence injunction against Ebron.
Hackney said investigators are still treating the case as a child abduction and don’t know whether Lonzie is alive or dead.
He said Ebron is not being cooperative with investigators.
Authorities in north Florida canceled an Amber Alert for a missing 21-month-old boy on Monday and say they are now investigating the disappearance of Lonzie Barton as a homicide.
Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Chief Tom Hackney released surveillance video during a news conference that shows the car of the mother’s boyfriend, William Ruben Ebron Jr., heading toward where the vehicle was eventually found abandoned and then Ebron running back toward his apartment.
“We’re working this as a murder case,” Hackney said.
Ebron, who lived with Lonzie’s mother, was caring for the boy and his 5-year-old sister when Lonzie disappeared July 24. Ebron initially told police he had left Lonzie in the car with its engine running while Ebron went into the apartment, and the car was gone when he returned, authorities said. The car was quickly recovered, but Lonzie hasn’t been located since.
“His whole explanation is nothing but a load of lies,” Hackney said.

The disappearance is considered “suspicious,” Lt. Dave Kent of the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office told the Record-Searchlight.
Police are interviewing the child’s family members, including Matthew Graham and the girl’s mother Jamie Graham. According to the station, police say that everyone contacted has been cooperative.
Matthew Graham was booked into the Shasta County Jail Friday on an unrelated probation violation, reports the paper. He’s reportedly being held without bail.
Matthew Graham, father of baby Ember Graham, has been named a “person of interest” in her disappearance, according to Shasta County Sheriff’s Lt. Dave Kent.
Kent said no other person of interest has been identified in the case. Ember’s mother, Jamie Lee Graham, is cooperating, he said.
“We have very limited information,” Kent said.
As reported earlier, Matthew Graham has been in Shasta County Jail on a probation violation, and is being held without bail. He was the first to report the baby missing from her crib a little after 5 a.m. Thursday morning.
Kent said the violation stems from DUI and forgery cases. During questioning, Matthew Graham gave investigators information that he took medication that had not been disclosed to his probation officer, which is a violation of conditions, Kent said.
UPDATE II: Sheriff: Missing baby Ember most likely not alive.
Monday marks the fifth day search and rescue teams from all over California have been searching for missing 6-month-old Ember Sky Graham.
Ember was reported missing from her crib early Thursday morning by her father, Matthew Graham, who is a person of interest in the disappearance of the baby.
Almost 80 volunteers from statewide search and rescue teams and 60 family members searched the countryside on Monday for the six-month-old. The search efforts are concentrated in the area of Clear Creek Road in Happy Valley.
Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko said given the time that has passed and the heat over the last five days, they are looking to recover the body of baby Ember to see if there’s any “recoverable evidence there.”
Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Ember Graham, please contact Shasta County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit at (530) 245-6135.
