FUNERAL CRASHER: Wife Noela Rukundo Crashes Her Own Funeral, Much to Husband’s Surprise, Who Had Paid to Have Her Killed … Balenga Kalala, Ultimately Pleaded Guilty & Sentenced to 9 Years in Prison
REAL LIFE FUNERAL CRASHERS, WHERE’S WILL FERRELL …
Noela Rukundo, an Australian woman, returned to her native Africa to travel to Burundi to attend her attend her stepmother’s funeral when she was abducted by a gang of men. They had been ordered by her husband of 10 years to kill her. The amazing part, she was spared by the hitmen with principles. Hmm, I guess there is sometimes honor among thieves. After having kidnapped her, the men said, they weren’t going to kill her, they didn’t believe in killing women. Instead, they called the husband and told him the job was done. According to Australia’s The Age newspaper, two days later, they set her free on the side of a road, but not before giving her a cellphone, recordings of their phone conversations with Kalala, and receipts for the $7,000 in Australian dollars they allegedly received in payment.
Noela Rukundo was presumed dead by her partner and their entire community who held a funeral in her home in Melbourne, Australia, in her memory early last year. Much to all of their surprise, after all of the mourners had left, she approached her former love who was under the impression that his wife was not only dead, but that he had got away with his murderous plan. That’s when she approached him and replied, “Surprise! I’m still alive!” Her husband looked like he’d seen a ghost. Eventually, her husband, Balenga Kalala, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 9 years in prison.
Balenga Kalala, who arrived in Australia in 2004 as a refugee, paid almost $7,000 to a group of kidnappers to kill the mother of his three children, Noela Rukundo, when she was attending her stepmother’s funeral in Burundi in early 2015.
The group snatched Ms Rukundo at gunpoint outside her hotel in Bujumbura in February and drove her to a secret location.
Finally, she spotted the man she’d been waiting for. She stepped out of her car, and her husband put his hands on his head in horror.
“Is it my eyes?” she recalled him saying. “Is it a ghost?”
“Surprise! I’m still alive!” she replied.
Far from being elated, the man looked terrified. Five days earlier, he had ordered a team of hit men to kill Rukundo, his partner of 10 years. And they did — well, they told him they did. They even got him to pay an extra few thousand dollars for carrying out the crime.
Now here was his wife, standing before him. In an interview with the BBC on Thursday, Rukundo recalled how he touched her shoulder to find it unnervingly solid. He jumped. Then he started screaming.
“I’m sorry for everything,” he wailed.
But it was far too late for apologies; Rukundo called the police. The husband, Balenga Kalala, ultimately pleaded guilty and was sentenced to nine years in prison for incitement to murder, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corp. (the ABC).
- One of them, Kathleen Zellner, is confident that the Making a Murderer subject will be exonerated after she presents new evidence.

ARE YOU KIDDING, WE ARE NOW PAYING CRIMINALS NOT TO COMMIT CRIMES?
District of Columbia Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie is the Democrat who wrote the legislation that would pay residents a stipend not to commit crimes. UNREAL, but this is what you get for liberal logic. Tax payers are supposed to redistribute their money and give it to individuals so they don’t commit crimes. Just curious, what happens if some one receives the stipend and does actually commit a crimes, do we get a refund? Why is it that liberals think using other peoples money and just throwing dollars at issues solves the problem?
Next up, paying kids to go to school, paying people not to speed, paying men not to abuse their wives, paying child molesters not not to commit crimes against the helpless and maybe even paying terrorists not to wage jihad. What do you think libs?
They say crime doesn’t pay, but that might not be entirely true in the District of Columbia as lawmakers look for ways to discourage people from becoming repeat offenders.
The D.C. Council voted unanimously Tuesday to approve a bill that includes a proposal to pay residents a stipend not to commit crimes. It’s based on a program in Richmond, California, that advocates say has contributed to deep reductions in crime there.
Under the bill, city officials would identify up to 200 people a year who are considered at risk of either committing or becoming victims of violent crime. Those people would be directed to participate in behavioral therapy and other programs. If they fulfill those obligations and stay out of trouble, they would be paid.
The bill doesn’t specify the value of the stipends, but participants in the California program receive up to $9,000 per year.
Richmond experienced a 77 percent drop in homicides between 2007, when the program was launched, and 2014, although how much can be specifically attributed to the stipends is unclear.
The proposal in Washington has generated scant debate as lawmakers have focused on other crime-fighting tools included in the bill. Longtime civic activist Dorothy Brizill was the only person to testify against the stipend program at a lengthy hearing last fall, saying it would waste taxpayer dollars.
23 Year Old Ohio Seminary Student Joel A. Wright Arrested at San Diego Airport, Allegedly Sought Sex With Infants
OH DEAR LORD, THANKFULLY THIS PERV WAS ARRESTED BEFORE HE COULD HARM AN INNOCENT CHILD …
23 year old Joel A. Wright, a seminary student and resident of Columbus, Ohio, was arrested by federal agents in San Diego, CA on Friday for allegedly planning to have sex with multiple infants in Mexico. Wright was charged with two felony counts: crossing state lines with the intention to engage in a sexual act with a minor, and attempting to travel “in interstate and foreign commerce” for the purpose of engaging in illegal sexual conduct with another person. SICK PERV!!! Joel A.Wright is expected to be arraigned on Monday. These types of sickos need to be removed from society forever.
Joel A. Wright, a seminary student and resident of Columbus, was charged with two felony counts: crossing state lines with the intention to engage in a sexual act with a minor, and attempting to travel “in interstate and foreign commerce” for the purpose of engaging in illegal sexual conduct with another person, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of California.
Wright is expected to be arraigned on Monday.
The suspect was taken into custody at San Diego International Airport by special agents with U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement, following a monthslong investigation into child sexual exploitation, according to a news release from the agency.
According to the criminal complaint, after receiving a tip, an undercover HSI special agent took over an email account and began chatting with Wright. Wright believed he was still communicating with a Mexico-based male tour guide he met after placing an online ad. During the email chats with the undercover investigator, Wright allegedly stated he wanted to travel to Tijuana to adopt or own a child under 3 years old and have intercourse with the child.
Subsequently, Wright booked his flight to San Diego and made arrangements to meet the friend of a tour guide at San Diego’s Lindberg Field. Investigators allege the plan was for Wright and the tour guide to then travel to a hotel in Tijuana where he would meet the female infants. Wright was taken into custody by HSI special agents after his plane landed at Lindberg Field Friday morning.
This investigation was conducted under HSI’s Operation Predator, an international initiative to protect children from sexual predators. Since the launch of Operation Predator in 2003, HSI has arrested more than 12,000 individuals for crimes against children, including the production and distribution of online child pornography, traveling overseas for sex with minors, and sex trafficking of children. In fiscal year 2014, more than 2,300 individuals were arrested by HSI special agents under this initiative and more than 1,000 victims identified or rescued.
If anyone has information about suspected child predators or suspicious activity was encouraged to call U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s tip line at 866-DHS-2-ICE or complete its online tip form.
33 Year Old Fashion Model Tara Lambert Found Guilty of Trying to Hire a Hitman to Murder the Mother of Her Husband’s Children
FASHION MODEL MURDER PLOT …
33 year old year old fashion model Tara Lambert has been found guilty of conspiracy to commit aggravated murder. According to prosecutors, Lambert of Centerville, Ohio, met with an undercover police officer posing as a hitman to make the arrangements to kill the mother of her husband’s children. It took less than an hour of deliberations before jurors returned a guilty verdict. Lambert’s attorney argued the undercover officer baited her into the murder agreement. Sure he did Mr. defense attorney. According to reports, Lambert suggested using a wood chipper to dispose of the remains. I guess the dense attorney will say that the officer suggested that as well. Following the verdict, the judge ordered Lambert held without bond and Lambert will be sentenced on Feb. 17 and faces over ten years in prison.
The jury in Circleville, south of Columbus, found 33-year-old fashion model Tara Lambert guilty of conspiracy to commit aggravated murder. The jury acquitted her of another count of the same charge alleging she also tried to have the ex-wife’s current husband killed.
Prosecutors say Lambert met with an undercover police officer posing as a hitman to make the arrangements. According to PEOPLE, records show that during those conversations, Lambert suggested using a wood chipper to dispose of the remains. She also reportedly gave the undercover officer a down payment and a photo of her stepchildren’s mother.
Lambert’s attorney called her mentally fragile and argued that the undercover officer baited her into the murder agreement.

HE DID WHAT MATE …
19 year old Sevdet Ramadan Besim has been charged with plotting to target police with a kangaroo packed with explosives in an ISIS terror attack in Melbourne, Australia. According to prosecutors, the teenager discussed packing a kangaroo with explosives, painting it with the ISIS symbol and setting it loose on police. Prosecutors also accuse Besim of communicating with a teenager overseas, as well as planning to run over and behead a police officer on Anzac Day.
A Melbourne teenager allegedly discussed packing a kangaroo with explosives, painting it with an Islamic State symbol and setting it loose on police officers.
Sevdet Ramadan Besim, 19, of Hallam, is accused of plotting an Anzac Day terror attack in Melbourne that would have included a beheading.
He was committed to trial in the Supreme Court on Thursday after pleading not guilty to four charges.
In a prosecution summary against Mr Besim tendered to court, police allege the pair spoke on March 16 last year, during which they discussed packing a kangaroo with explosives and letting it loose on police.
“The conversation continues with Besim detailing what he did that day and they have a general discussion around animals and wildlife in Australia, including a suggestion that a kangaroo could be packed with C4 explosive, painted with the IS symbol and let loose on police officers,” the summary says.
