NINE PEOPLE DEAD AT MULTIPLE LOCATIONS IN TYRONE, MO … SUSPECT ALSO DEAD.
CNN is reporting that 9 people have been killed at multiple locations in Tyrone, Missouri. The suspect is also dead. According to Sheriff James Sigman, there are multiple crime scenes, including four in the Texas County community of Tyrone. The school district have asked officials in Tyrone to show up early. Oh no, this was not a school shooting; however, it is possible and most likely that a child has been killed in this mass shooting and thus the reason why counseling is being provided at the school this morning.
The gunman is reported dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Eight people, plus a suspect, were found dead in multiple locations after a report of gunfire in south-central Missouri, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said Friday morning.
Police said there were “multiple homicides,” although one of the eight, an elderly woman, apparently died of natural causes. Police didn’t say how the others died, though police found them in several homes in Tyrone, Missouri, after a report of gunfire Thursday night.
The suspect, a 36-year-old man, was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot in a vehicle in an adjacent county, the highway patrol said.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports it began at about 10:15 p.m. Thursday when the Texas County Sheriff’s Department requested assistance with a disturbance involving a weapon at a home in Tyrone, Missouri. A juvenile female caller told authorities she was in the home and apparently heard gun shots. She made the call from a neighbor’s house
Texas County deputies reported finding found two deceased persons at this residence. Further investigation revealed five additional people dead and one person wounded in three additional homes.
The apparent suspect, a 36-year-old man from Tyrone, was found dead in a vehicle in Shannon County from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Authorities say they found a ninth person dead in the search, but say that person apparently died of natural causes.
The Missouri Highway Patrol said the Texas County Sheriff’s Department asked for help at 10:15 p.m. on a disturbance involving a weapon at a residence in Tyrone, Missouri.
“A juvenile female caller indicated she was in the residence and apparently heard gun shots. She immediately fled to a neighbor’s house to notify authorities.”
“Responding deputies found two deceased persons at this residence. Further investigation revealed five additional victims who were deceased and one additional victim who was wounded in three additional residences.
“All three residences were in Tyrone.
“Another residence revealed the body of a deceased elderly female who appeared to have died from natural causes.
“The apparent suspect, a 36-year-old male from Tyrone, was found dead in a vehicle at a location in Shannon County from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
A gunman went door to door in a small south-central Missouri community late Thursday, fatally shooting 7 people before driving to an adjoining county and apparently killing himself, State Highway Patrol Sgt. Jeff Kinder said Friday.
Texas County deputies investigating the killings in the unincorporated community of Tyrone, Mo., also found the body of an elderly woman who is believed to have died of natural causes. “We’re not calling her a victim at this time,” Kinder told reporters in Houston, Mo.
Tyrone Missouri killings Police press conference
Kinder did not release the names of the dead or explain any possible connection between the victims and the 36-year-old man suspected in the killings.
The deputies found bodies in four separate residences in the Tyrone area after responding to a 911 call around 10:15 p.m. Thursday regarding a disturbance. The caller, described as a juvenile girl, reported hearing shots in her residence “and immediately fled to a neighbor’s house,” the statement said.
Deputies found two bodies at the first house then five more bodies – plus an injured person – at three more houses. The body of the deceased elderly woman was found at yet another residence as deputies canvassed the area, the highway patrol said.
The gunman’s body was found in a car in Shannon County to the east.
Texas County Coroner Tom Whittaker told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the deceased woman and the alleged gunman have the same surname. Investigators, he said, suspect that he may have gone on a shooting spree after discovering her body.
Joseph Jesse Aldridge
Gunman Joseph Jesse Aldridge, 36, was later found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound inside a car in a neighboring county after the killings in the rural community of Tyrone, located in the southern part of the state, about 90 miles east of Springfield, authorities said.
Texas County coroner Tom Whittaker told NBC affiliate KSDK that the body of a woman identified by authorities as Aldridge’s mother, 74-year-old Alice Aldridge, had been dead for 24 hours before she was found by authorities Thursday night, and she is thought to have died of natural causes.
Whittaker said the suspect’s discovery of the body may have sparked the killing spree, but investigators said a motive has not yet been determined. Texas County Sheriff’s deputies first learned of the rampage — which spanned six crime scenes in a three-mile radius in Tyrone — just after 10 p.m. local time after a juvenile female called 911 and said there were gunshots in her home.
Four of the seven victims were identified as husband and wife Darrell Aldridge and Julie Aldridge and husband and wife Harold Aldridge and Janelle Aldridge, Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Jeff Kinder said at a news conference Friday, adding that the some were cousins of the suspect.
Eight people were killed, including the alleged gunman, in multiple shootings Thursday night near Tyrone in Texas County.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the suspect, 36-year-old Joseph Jesse Aldridge, apparently killed seven individuals and injured another at multiple residences before fleeing to Shannon County and killing himself. Authorities believe a ninth person died of natural causes before the shooting spree and may have motivated the gunman.
The patrol identified four victims Friday afternoon at a press conference as two married couples: Garold Dee Aldridge, 52, and Julie Ann Aldridge, 47, and Harold Wayne Aldridge, 50, and Janell Arlisa Aldridge, 48.
Three victims’ names are not being released pending notification of next of kin.
ISIS Terrorist Jihadi John Unmasked … Identified as Kuwaiti-born British Man in his Mid-20′s from West London Mohammed Emwazi
Jihadi John Unmasked …
As reported at the Washington Post and the BBC, the masked ISIS terrorists known as “Jihadi John”, who has become the face of the brutal and barbaric ISIS video beheadings, now has a real name. Jihadi John’s name is Mohammed Emwazi, a Kuwaiti-born British man in his mid-20′s from west London, who was known to UK security services.
The masked Islamic State militant known as “Jihadi John”, who has been pictured in the videos of the beheadings of Western hostages, has been named.
The BBC understands he is Mohammed Emwazi, a Kuwaiti-born British man in his mid-20s from west London, who was known to UK security services.
They chose not to disclose his name earlier for operational reasons.
Emwazi first appeared in a video last August, when he apparently killed the American journalist James Foley.
He was later thought to have been pictured in the videos of the beheadings of US journalist Steven Sotloff, British aid worker David Haines, British taxi driver Alan Henning, and American aid worker Abdul-Rahman Kassig, also known as Peter.
VIDEO – BBC
Hmm, looks like Jihadi John would not benefit from Obama’s State Department “jobs for Jihadi’s” program. He comes from a well-to-do family who grew up in West London and graduated from college with a degree in computer programming.
But his real name, according to friends and others familiar with his case, is Mohammed Emwazi, a Briton from a well-to-do family who grew up in West London and graduated from college with a degree in computer programming. He is believed to have traveled to Syria around 2012 and to have later joined the Islamic State, the group whose barbarity he has come to symbolize.
“I have no doubt that Mohammed is Jihadi John,” said one of Emwazi’s close friends who identified him in an interview with The Washington Post. “He was like a brother to me. .?.?. I am sure it is him.”
The Kuwaiti-born Emwazi, in his mid-20s, appears to have left little trail on social media or elsewhere online. Those who knew him say he was polite and had a penchant for wearing stylish clothes while adhering to the tenets of his Islamic faith. He had a beard and was mindful of making eye contact with women, friends said.

SAVAGES, JUST SAVAGES …
ISIS burned Jordanian pilot alive in a cage. It would appear that the radical Islamo-Nazi terrorist group has decided to escalate the depravity. These savages burned alive the pilot they had in captivity, Jordanian Pilot Muath al-Kasaesbeh. Obviously beheading innocents has become too common place for ISIS, they needed a greater shock value for PR. What kind of sick SOB’s douse an individual with gasoline and burn them alive? UNREAL.
The Jordanian government confirmed that Islamic State militants had killed the pilot on Jan. 3, state television reported. A report by Sky News Arabic reports prisoners that Jordan planned to swap with ISIS are to be executed tonight.
Last week, Jordan issued an ultimatum to the Islamic State that it would execute its ISIS prisoners if the terrorist group killed the Jordanian pilot it had captured.
The ISIS video and images showed a burning man standing in a cage. Kasaesbeh was apparently placed in the cage on open ground, draped in the now traditional orange robes, doused in flammable liquid, and set alight. The 20-minute-long video featured the slick production and graphics used in previous videos released by the group.
The head of the Jordanian armed forces told his family he had been killed, a member of the family told Reuters.
Kasaesbeh has been in Islamic State captivity since his plane crashed over Syria in December.
The pilot, Mu’ath Safi Yousef Al-Kaseasbeh, 26, a first lieutenant in Jordan’s air force, was captured on Christmas Eve after his F-16 jet crash-landed near the Syrian city of Raqqa, which is held by ISIS (also known as ISIL).
I debated on whether to publish the pic below from the terrible and disgusting video; however, I felt the need to show just what these savages are capable of. This is the radical Islam that our dear president refuses to acknowledge and call it by name for what it is. I also thought as I watched the disturbing video of the Jordanian pilot being burned alive, just what must those individuals have been going through in the World Trade Centers on 9-11 when they face the same situation that would cause them to jump 100 stories to their death.
UPDATE I: Jordan’s King Abdullah praises pilot Muath al-Kasaesbeh.
Power Rangers Actor Ricardo Medina Arrested For Murder in Los Angeles, CA for Killing Roomate 36 Year Old Joshua Sutter With Sword
ANOTHER POWER RANGER ACTOR IN BIG TROUBLE …
Former Power Rangers actor, 36 year old Ricardo Medina, was arrested on Saturday in Los Angeles, California for the alleged fatal stabbing of his roommate, 36-year-old Joshua Sutter. Medina is best known for playing Cole Evans, the Red Wild Force Ranger, on Power Rangers Wild Force in 2002. According to police, Medina and Sutter had an apparent altercation earlier in the day that turned physical at their home in the 38000 block of San Francisquito Canyon Road. The incident occurred around 4 p.m. where Media grabbed a sword by his door and struck Sutter in the abdomen. Ricardo Medina was arrested and booked into LA County jail for murder and held in lieu of $1 million bail.
Power Rangers actor Ricardo Medina, 36, was arrested in Los Angeles County, in California, on Saturday afternoon for allegedly stabbing his roommate to death with a sword.
The incident occurred at around 4 p.m. after Medina had an apparent altercation with 36-year-old Joshua Sutter, who entered Medina’s room after an earlier argument. Medina grabbed a sword by his door and struck Sutter in the abdomen with one fatal stab, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Medina phoned 911 and was later taken to the sheriff’s station in the city of Palmdale, where he was detained and faces a $1 million bail.
Detectives have confirmed that Medina played a red Power Ranger on television, Sheriff’s Deputy Amber Smith told the Los Angeles Times. According to IMDb, he portrayed the Red Lion Wild Force Ranger on the “Power Rangers Wild Force” series in 2002 and voiced the character Deker on “Power Rangers Samurai” in 2012-13, among other acting roles.
Medina’s agent, Gar Lester, told The Times that it was difficult for him to believe the allegations against Medina are true.
“He’s been my friend and client for 12 years and he’s a great guy,” Lester said Sunday. “He’s great to his dog, he’s great to his people. He’s really a super person.”
Judge Orders Funeral Home That Sold Lee Harvey Oswald’s Pine Casket for $87,468 Must Return It To Presidential JFK Assassin’s Brother, Robert Oswald
IMAGINE SEEING THIS FOR SALE ON EBAY OR CRAIG’S LIST …
Tarrant County, TX Judge Don Cosby ruled Friday that the funeral home that sold Lee Harvey Oswald’s pine casket for $87,468 must return it to the presidential assassin’s brother. Judge Cosby wrote that Robert Oswald bought his brother’s (Lee Harvey Oswald) pine box for $300 on November 24, 1963, and it remains to this day “the personal property of Robert.” In December 2010, a Los Angeles auction house sold the casket to an unidentified buyer for $87,468. Judge Don Cosby stated the actions of the funeral home’s conduct was “wrongful, wanton and malicious.”
CREEPY, JUST CREEPY.
Judge orders Lee Harvey Oswald’s casket returned to assassin’s brother
In 1981, Lee Harvey Oswald’s body was exhumed (VIDEO) amid conspiracy theories that the grave did not contain Lee Harvey Oswald’s body. What a shock, something surrounding the assignation of President John F. Kennedy was mired in conspiracy. The remains were examined and determined to be that of Oswald after dental records were confirmed. When Lee Harvey Oswald was reburied, it was not done so with the original pine box as it was too damaged. It was thought by the family that the original casket was thrown away. However, that was not the case. As it turns out the funeral home, Baumgardner Funeral Home, kept it and eventually sold it at auction, along with Lee Harvey Oswald’s death certificate and the embalming tools and table used in his burial, to an anonymous buyer. How creepy. Robert Oswald sued Nate D. Sanders Fine Autographs & Memorabilia, Inc., and Baumgardner Funeral Home over the sale of the casket, as well as other grim items tied to his brother’s death. During the trial, the funeral home’s attorney actually tried to argue that the coffin was “a gift” from Robert to Lee.
The Funeral Of Lee Harvey Oswald
A funeral home that sold Lee Harvey Oswald’s pine casket for $87,468 must return it to the accused presidential assassin’s brother, a judge ruled Friday.
Robert Oswald had bought the pine bluff casket for his brother, whose body was exhumed in 1981 amid conspiracy theories that it did not contain Lee Harvey Oswald’s body. After a Dallas hospital confirmed the body through dental records, it was reburied, but not in the original casket, which was too water-damaged.
Oswald’s family says it thought the original casket had been thrown away, but the funeral home actually kept it in storage before selling it at auction — along with Lee Harvey Oswald’s death certificate and the embalming tools and table used in his burial — to an anonymous buyer.
Oswald’s brother, Robert, sued Baumgardner Funeral Home after it sold the coffin through an auction house in Santa Monica, California. The auction house still has the coffin, because the lawsuit had put the sale of the coffin on hold. The sale was never completed, the judgment says.
In addition to returning the casket to Robert Oswald, the funeral home must pay him $87,468 in damages, state District Judge Don Cosby ruled, saying its conduct was “wrongful, wanton and malicious.”
It also must pay the auction house more than $10,000 in storage fees.
The funeral home also must cover the expense of transporting the coffin from California to Texas, where the family plans to destroy it, according to Oswald’s attorney, Gant Grimes.
