FOX News:

Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams, who dazzled in such wide-ranging dramatic and comedic roles as alien, nanny, therapist and cartoon genie during a four-decades long career, was found dead in his northern California home in a suspected suicide Monday. He was 63.

The Marin County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement that Williams was found unconscious and not breathing in his home around noon. The statement said the investigation into Williams’ death is ongoing, but the coroner “suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia.”

A representative for Williams said in a statement the actor had been battling “severe depression of late.”

“This is a tragic and sudden loss,” Mara Buxbaum said. “The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

The death of Robin Williams is truly like a death of so many childhood memories. So many great TV shows and movies. But the best of all was his brilliant comic ad-lib. I can remember Robin Williams from when he first came to our TV’s on Happy Days as Mork. This would in turn spin off into Mork & Mindy where he starred with Pam Dawber as an alien living in Bolder, CO. Williams starred in some of my favorite movies like The Bird Cage, Good Morning Vietnam, Good Will Hunting, August Rush, Moscow on the Hudson, The World According to Garp and Dead Poets Society.

Mork & Mindy: 1978 – 1982 (Season 2 Episode 2 Stark Raving Mork)

Good Morning Vietnam

Dead Poets Society – the mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation; don’t resign to that…

Not only a great movie scene, but words to live by. “We much constantly look at things in a different way. Just when you think you know something, you have to look at it in a different way.”

Jennifer Huston Missing Since 7/24/14: Stopped at a Rite Aid Drug Store and Purchased Gatorade, Trail Mix and a Package of Sleeping Pills … Surveillance Video Image … Missing: Accident, Abduction, Suicide? (Update: Possible Sighting in San Juan Islands)(Update: Jennifer Huston’s Body Found)(Update: Officially Ruled a Suicide)

Ut-oh, Sleeping pills, full tank of gas and cell phone turned off …

Authorities in Oregon have released a surveillance video image of missing Jennifer Huston from the day that she went missing on July 24, 2014. The image is of Huston stopped at a Rite Aid drug store in Newberg, OR, and purchasing Gatorade, trail mix and a package of over-the-counter sleeping pills.

These are not good signs. The police have stated that the amount of sleeping pills she purchased would not be enough for a lethal dose. Also, the full tank of gas purchased by Jennifer Huston’s provides her with a 300 to 350 mile traveling range. Not to speculate, but I think the police may be looking at this in the wrong way. Sadly, sleeping pills, a full tank of gas and some one turning their cell phone off as all of the unfortunate signs of one attempting to contemplate suicide. The sleeping pills are not intended to be lethal, they are meant to make one drowsy as they run a car with a full tank of gas as carbon monoxide fumes enter the vehicle. The cell phone is turned off so not to be pinged and located. As per KPTV, according to phone records, Jennifer Huston received a text message from her mother at 6:22 p.m. Thursday, but the phone stopped sending signals at 6:25 p.m.

I hope I am very wrong and she is found safe and sound.

Missing Oregon mom Jennifer Huston stopped at a Rite Aid drug store in Newberg, Ore., and purchased Gatorade, trail mix and a package of over-the-counter sleeping pills — a non-lethal dose — before she disappeared last week, police said Tuesday night.

Police released new details about the search for the married mother of two young boys.

Detectives said her husband, Kallen Huston, has been cooperative through the whole process, including multiple interviews, and he passed a polygraph test.

Investigators previously released a timeline of Jennifer Huston’s last known activities that included leaving her home last Thursday at 5:45 p.m., going to the Oregon First Community Credit Union in Newberg about three miles away and then to a nearby Circle K gas station on Portland Road.

Police said she spent less than $40 at the gas station, so they believe she was topping off the tank. She withdrew less than $100 from the credit union ATM.

UPDATE I: Search for missing Ore. mom extends to San Juan Islands

The search for a missing Oregon mother has been extended to Washington state’s San Juan Islands, after police learned that she had visited there before in the past and that it was one of her favorite spots.

At the same time, authorities in the San Juan Islands have been told that Huston may have gone there.

San Juan County Sheriff Rom Nou confirmed that he had received a bulletin from detectives in Oregon saying that Huston may be in the San Juans or on her way there.

UPDATE II: Police confirm possible sighting of missing Oregon mom in Washington state islands.

Authorities confirmed late Saturday that they are investigating a possible sighting of missing Oregon mother Jennifer Huston in Washington state’s San Juan Islands.

San Juan (Wash.) Country Sheriff’s deputies have told KPTV that a couple visiting the islands are convinced that they saw Huston on board a ferry traveling from the mainland town of Anacortes to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island on the morning of July 31, exactly a week after she was reported missing.

San Juan Country Undersheriff Bruce Distler told the station that the couple said the woman was blonde, in her 30s, and driving a green SUV with a cracked windshield, similar to descriptions put out by police. Distler said that the tip was so descriptive that it prompted deputies to alert the police department in Newberg, Ore., where Huston was last seen.

FOX 12 can exclusively confirm that deputies are actively investigating a possible sighting of Jennifer Huston in the San Juan Islands.

Now, San Juan County Sheriff deputies are rushing to get their hands on surveillance video from aboard that ferry.

“The information that we’ve received is that there was a female on the boat, on the 9 o’clock ferry sailing from Anacortes to Friday Harbor on Thursday morning July 31,” said San Juan County Under sheriff Bruce Distler.

“The woman we talked to also identified a green car, possibly a 99 Lexus, with cracked windshield although she couldn’t give us a license plate,” said Distler.

Deputies say the couple who spotted the car also described a woman in her 30′s with blonde hair who had a 2 by 3 inch white Band-Aid on her left cheek. The tip was so descriptive, they’ve alerted the Newberg police department.

Deputies say they have also called ferry security based out of Seattle to pull the tape from that morning so they can confirm if the woman is in fact Huston.

Three More Victims Identified After Elliot Rodger Deadly Killing Spree in Isla Vista, California … UCSB Students Cheng Yuan Hong, 20, George Chen, 19, and Weihan Wang, 20

Three more victims of the Elliot Rodger of the deadly killing spree have been identified. The three victims who were stabbed multiple times to death in unit No. 7 of a two-story, charcoal gray building on Seville Road have been identified as 20 year old Cheng Yuan Hong, 19 year old George Chen amd 20 year old Weihan Wang. The police state that Hong and Chen were listed as tenants at the apartment along with the 22 year old mass murderer Elliot Rodger. All three victims were students at the University of California Santa Barbara. Thirteen others were injured, some by gunfire and others by being hit by his vehicle. One was in serious condition at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.

The three victims who were stabbed in the apartment of the man who unleashed a rampage in the college town of Isla Vista, California, were identified by authorities Sunday, two days after the violent spree.

The victims were identified as Cheng Yuan Hong, 20, and George Chen, 19, both of San Jose, and Weihan Wang, 20, of Fremont.

Authorities said that Hong and Chen were listed as tenants at the apartment of 22-year-old Elliot Rodger, who was suspected of causing the rampage. It was unclear if Wang was a roommate, too. All three were students at the University of California Santa Barbara.

 

Early today the three other shooting victims that were killed were ID’d,  22 year old Katie Cooper, 19 year old Veronika Weiss and Christopher Ross Michaels-Martinez. All 6 victims in Isla Vista murdered were UCSB students. That fact that an individual with so many mental issues and for some time was not flagged some where along the line had legally purchased guns is troubling, and personally I am as pro-Second Amendment as it gets.

Hidden in Rodger’s bedroom were three guns purchased legally from licensed dealers in Goleta, Oxnard and Burbank, authorities said. They said Rodger used the guns and his black BMW to wreak havoc across a square mile of the quiet college town — running down cyclists and skateboarders, shooting through shop windows and exchanging fire with officers.

Elliot Rodger had wrote in his 141 page manifesto the details to his deranged plans that stated, “The first people I would have to kill are my two housemates, to secure the entire apartment for myself as my personal torture and killing chamber.” The psycho then went on to write that he would lure people into the apartment and kill them before an “ultimate showdown in the streets of Isla Vista.”

Another Shooting at Fort Hood … 4 Dead Including Gunman … Shooter ID’d as 34 Year Old Fort Hood Soldier Ivan Lopez

If we learn nothing from history, be are destined to repeat it …

Sadly, yesterday we were witness to another shooting at Fort Hood where three people were killed and 16 individuals injured before the gunman killed himself. The shooter was identified as 34 year old Fort Hood Army specialist Ivan Lopez. According to Lt. Gen. Mark A. Milley, the shooter served in Iraq in 2011 and was being treated for “behavioral health and mental health” issues. Lopez  had been undergoing an assessment to determine whether he had post-traumatic stress disorder.

Have we learned nothing from the 2009 Fort Hood shooting where  Army psychiatrist, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan killed 12 soldiers?

VIDEO – CNN

There was a shooting on Fort Hood on Wednesday afternoon.

Three people are dead along with the shooter, and 16 others were injured. All were active duty military.

Thirty-four-year-old Fort Hood soldier Ivan Lopez was identified as the shooter. General Milley said that the shooter was being treated for mental issues, but not yet diagnosed with PTSD. The shooter is married with family in the local area, and he just arrived at Fort Hood in February.

Lopez is said to have been the only gunman.

Gen Milley believes the shooting started when he opened fire in a building. He then left the building, got into his vehicle, and fired. He then got out of his vehicle again and went into another building.  After entering the second building, he became face-to-face with an officer and that is when he shot himself.

UPDATE I: Many many more updates at the Jawa Report and the PJ Tatler.

The general said there was no known motive for the shooting.

“There is no indication that this incident is related to terrorism, although we are not ruling anything out,” he said.

The suspected shooter was wearing combat fatigues, said a U.S. official briefed on the shooting. He was armed with a .45-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun that he purchased recently, said Milley.
