Threesome during Hurricane Irma turned gruesome


A threesome in a man’s Florida home during Hurricane Irma turned gruesome when he was killed by one of the male participants and left to decompose, authorities said.

Ariel Gonzalez was found dead in his Broward County apartment on Sept. 13 after a friend alerted police she hadn’t seen him for several days and noticed a foul odor coming from his house, the Miami Herald reported.

When police arrived at Gonzalez’s home they found him “wrapped in a comforter” and he had been decomposing.

The sexual encounter between Gonzalez and two suspects — Travis Watson (pictured above) and Jacob Mitchell — happened on Sept.10 when Hurricane Irma hit the state, police said.

Mitchell refers to Watson as his husband. Watson, who had been released from prison after completing a 13-year sentence, told cops that Mitchell was mad at Gonzalez for having oral sex with him, according to the Herald.

An arrest report obtained by the paper states that Gonzalez invited the two men to his home where they had sex.

Mitchell is accused of beating Gonzalez with a broomstick and pouring hot grease on his head after Watson had asked Gonzalez where he kept his money, the Herald reported.

Mitchell is still on the run. Watson was booked into Broward County Jail and is charged with robbery without a firearm, kidnapping, and failure to report a death. His bond was set at $100,000.

Home Owner Charged in the Shooting death of Renisha McBride

The home owner has been identified as Theodore Wafer, 54, and he faces charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of Renisha McBride, who died of a gunshot wound to her face.

Theodore P. Wafer, 54, of Dearborn Heights, also faces a manslaughter charge in the death of Renisha McBride in the early-morning hours of Nov. 2, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said. McBride was shot in the face after police say they believe she was involved in a car accident nearby in Detroit and family members say she likely approached Wafer’s home for help.

Civil rights groups have called for a thorough investigation, saying they believe race was a factor in the shooting of McBride who was black, Wafer is white. Prosecutors insisted that race was not relevant.

“In this case, the charging decision has absolutely nothing to do with the race of the parties,” Worthy said Friday.

Evidence showed McBride knocked on the locked screen door, Worthy said, and that there was no sign of forced entry.

“These are the appropriate charges and he did not act in lawful self-defense,” Worthy said.

Wafer is not in custody and that prosecutors will ask him to turn himself in, Worthy said. An arraignment is scheduled for 2 p.m. The Associated Press tried to leave a message for Wafer’s attorney, Cheryl Carpenter, but her voicemail was full.

Mississippi town stunned by murder of openly gay mayoral candidate Marco McMillian


mcmillian1n-1-web
Marco McMillian was considered by many to be a man on the rise. The first openly gay mayoral candidate’s body was found near a Mississippi River levee Wednesday morning and stunned residents of his hometown in Clarksdale, Miss.  Authorities are investigating McMillian’s death as a homicide but declined to speculate on the cause of death. Authorities have also said a person of interest was in custody, but released no other details about his murder.

McMillian was a highly respected person in town, the 34-year-old Democrat wasn’t running what many would consider a typical campaign for political office in Mississippi, which is known for its conservative politics.

McMillian, was not only nice looking but he was promising. He had forged ties while serving four years as international executive director of the historically black Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. Photos on McMillian’s website and Facebook page show him with a younger Barack Obama, former President Bill Clinton and with U.S. Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat.

Authorities had been looking for McMillian since Tuesday morning when a man crashed the candidate’s SUV into another vehicle on U.S. Highway 49. McMillian was not in the car.

McMillian was hoping to win the office being vacated by Mayor Henry Espy Jr.

Man killed in broad daylight on NY Street

The NYPD has released a photo taken from surveillance video just moments before a man was gunned down on a busy New York street in broad daylight Monday.

Witnesses say the man shot Brandon Lincoln Woodard in the back of the head, then calmly hopped into a waiting SUV, with a driver behind the wheel. The light-colored Lincoln sedan headed east before getting stuck in traffic just yards from Woodward’s body.

But the assailant and his driver did not panic. The SUV idled at a red light until traffic cleared and then disappeared down 7th Avenue.

“There was no rush,” NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said of Woodard’s killer. “He just walked up, shot him and walked away.”

The assailant, described as a bald black man with a beard, walked up behind Woodward on 58th Street between Seventh Avenue and Broadway at about 2 p.m., and fired a single shot into the back of his head.

In the photo, Woodward appears to be checking his cell phone before he was executed.

Witnesses who heard the gunshot scattered in all directions. Several witnesses rushed to a nearby fire station to report the shooting.

“I just heard a gunshot. It was loud. There was blood all over his face,” said David Mirambeau, 29, a UPS worker. “He was gasping for air. He was still alive.”

Police recovered a single shell casing in the street near Woodward’s body.

A police source told the NY Post the shooting was “definitely a hit, an assassination.” Police are investigating the murder as drug connected.
