  1. PA law helping good Samaritans who help kids in hot cars goes into effect by Alexis Wainwright Wednesday, July 17th 2019 AA The “Hot Car Bill" -- aimed at helping good Samaritans is now in effect. (WJAC) PENNSYLVANIA – As temperatures rise parents are being reminded to not leave their children alone in cars. In fact, this is the first week a new law is in affect -- to protect against that very problem. During hot days like we're expected to see this weekend, it only takes seconds for your car to reach scorching temperatures. Officials say cracking a window doesn't really help when you have a child or pet inside. Last year, Pennsylvania passed "Act 104" -- better known as the “Hot Car Bill" -- aimed at helping good Samaritans. The bill would give a more lenient consequence to those who step in to rescue kids who seem to be in danger, even if that means breaking into a car. There are some conditions: Under the law, the good Samaritan must use no more force than is necessary and the person must try to contact emergency responders and the car owner. According to the National Safety Council, in 2018, 51 kids died in hot cars, nationwide. That's the most ever but many hope this new legislation could be a lifesaver. A similar bill was passed last year allowing law enforcement to enter hot cars to rescue pets but that doesn't apply to most civilians.

  2. Sykesville Woman Still Missing After 12 Years July 18, 2019 12:45 am· Author: Andrew Bundy SYKESVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – More than a decade has passed, but authorities are no closer to discovering what happened to Sykesville resident Joey Lynn Offett or how her infant son ended up dead prior to a blaze in her home. According to WJAC’s coverage in 2016, Offett lived in Sykesville for six months before the fire department was called to her house. The morning of July 12, 2007, firefighters responded to the blaze, extinguishing the fire and finding the remains of Offett’s six-week-old son in the rubble. WJAC said that the child died before the blaze. The mystery, however, deepened as no evidence of Offett was found in the home. Her car, a red Saturn with Virginia plates, was later found abandoned in State College. On a website created by Offett’s family, www.findjoey.org, family members presented a theory: “As her family, we know Joey would not willingly leave her children, and we fear someone killed her and then tried to destroy evidence by burning the house down.” Offett had two older children, but of those children did not stay with her at the time of the disappearance or the death of the infant. They lived with family, and Offett was declared legally dead in June 2016, according to coverage in the Brookville Jeffersonian Democrat. Judge John Foradora declared her dead as of July 12, 2007, as that was the last time she was seen alive. The request was made by Offett’s mother, Sherry Hallett. The website created by her family has not been updated since 2014. However, “The Trail Went Cold” podcast covered the disappearance in March of this year, establishing a timeline of events leading up to the disappearance. Prior to that podcast, Investigation Discovery’s “Disappeared” program covered Offett in 2012 and “America’s Most Wanted” covered her in 2008. “The Trail Went Cold” provides information that is not in news coverage at the time or later. Robin Warder, the host of “The Trail Went Cold,” describes himself on his website as “an aspiring screenwriter who also loves to write about unsolved mysteries and true crime.” In his podcast and on a Reddit post, Warder claims that there is evidence of health issues for Offett. Warder said that Hallett, talked to a psychologist who said that Offett had the mind of a 14-year-old. Warder also claimed that Offett was meeting men online, some of whom wanted her to pose as a model or do pornography. In the timeline Warder posts in his podcast, Offett had an argument with her “on-again, off-again boyfriend” Alexis Brolin, Jr., the father of the six-week-old child. Warder said that, by the time of the “Disappeared” episode, police had interviewed Brolin and did not charge him as there was no evidence that he was involved. The family established a phone number, 1-877-440-JOEY (1-877-440-5639), for anyone with tips. Information can also be submitted by calling the Pennsylvania State Police. A $25,000.00 reward is being offered. https://www.explorejeffersonpa.com/sykesville-woman-still-missing-after-12-years/#more-235758

  4. Elderly robocall scam victim committed suicide after 'fraudsters' stole life savings Published July 17, 2019 TechnologyFOXBusiness FCC Chairman takes on robocalls: We want to make sure consumers are protected FCC Chairman Ajit Pai on the agency's efforts to take on robocalls. The Senate Aging Committee Opens a New Window. heard testimony Wednesday from witnesses and government officials explaining the impact of criminals that are unseen – but heard – over phone lines. Continue Reading Below Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, noted last year that robocallers generated 26 billion unwanted calls reaching Americans’ mobile phones Opens a New Window. . She said adding landline outreach grows that number to 48 billion calls. One of those people on the other line was Marjorie Jones, an 82-year-old woman who committed suicide after giving up her life's savings to phone scammers. “They told her she had won a large cash prize, and all she had to do was pay the taxes and fees,” Angela Stancik, Jones’ granddaughter, explained to lawmakers. Stancik said she realized her grandmother was a victim of elder fraud in the last conversation she had with her. She needed $6,000 “as soon as possible,” and was desperate. The family could never think of a time she needed to borrow money in the past. “I could hear the panic in her voice, and she was very very afraid.” Stancik’s father had just wired $8,000 the week prior. He thought someone was scamming her, but given her tone, he wired the $6,000. Jones killed herself a week later. “It is clear to us that the circumstances that led to her death were caused by these criminals,” Stancik said through tears. Her grandmother had bags of receipts in her closet that showed the money sent to unknown accounts, took out a second mortgage on her home, drained her life savings and cashed out all of her life insurance. Federal authorities busted the elder fraud ring last year, when then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the victims targeted more than 1 million people living in the U.S. The hearing follows a number of bills and initiatives Opens a New Window. proposed to help stop unwanted robocalls from reaching Americans on their phones.

Robocall epidemic has Senators eyeing steep fines for scam artists Opens a New Window. AT&T promises to automatically block robocalls in 'coming months' Opens a New Window. Delaware County, Pennsylvania Sheriff Jerry Sanders, who also testified in the hearing, explained how some of those calls use “spoofing.” The term describes when a fraudulent incoming call masks itself as coming from someone in a person’s contact list, or with caller I.D. In one case, the sheriff said the person on the other line identified themselves using the name of an actual deputy on his staff. He said often the person on the other line claims fines are owed for missing jury duty, and a warrant is issued for the caller that they need to pay. “The caller will identify themselves as a member of the sheriff’s office … In one recent incident the caller used the name of an actual deputy, going so far as to use the deputy’s voicemail greeting as their own,” Sheriff Sanders said. Oftentimes, people are told to transfer money to accounts, or even purchase money cards from retailers and mail them to avoid arrest. Most people then opt for the fine in order to avoid a supposed arrest. “Unfortunately, given the manpower and resources, local law enforcement can do little to investigate these crimes to arrest.” Opens a New Window. https://www.foxbusiness.com/features/robocall-scam-victim-suicide-stole-life-saving

  7. Water bottle warning as hot and humid temperatures hit by Mary Kielar, WSTM Staff Wednesday, July 17th 2019 AA Photo: CNYCentral MANLIUS N.Y. (WSTM) - As hot and humid temperatures hit the country once again, first responders have a water bottle warning. First responders say leaving a plastic bottle of water in a hot car and direct sunlight can start a fire in just a couple of minutes. Sponsored by ZINC Manlius Firefighter Jay Symonds from Central New York demonstrated what can happen. “It would need to be a full water bottle, that is filled to the top of the water,” says Symonds.”The water and the plastic create a magnifying effect, and could essentially set upholstery on fire or a piece of plastic on fire. Symonds used a piece of paper, and angled the bottle so the sun would reflect onto the paper, and eventually burn – just like what could happen in your car. After several minutes of waiting the ink melted, we got some browning on the backside of the paper, Symonds said. “It does give truth to the myth that you can set your car on fire with a water bottle that's full." “The ignition temperatures of those items are about 400 degrees so it would take some time to achieve that and you need low humidity, dry heat, but it is possible that it would start a fire,” Symonds said. Firefighters say to store water bottles in a trunk as long as it’s out of direct sunlight or in a cooler.

  9. DA Burkett: Tetro ‘Had to Be Held Accountable’ for Child Sex Crimes July 17, 2019 12:40 am· Author: Aly Delp BROOKVILLE, Pa. – “Tough, but fair.” Those are the words Jefferson County District Attorney Jeff Burkett used to describe the sentence handed down by county judge John H. Foradora to convicted child molester Glenn Tetro on Monday. Judge Foradora sentenced Tetro, of Summerville, to 21 to 80 years in state prison for the repeated sexual abuse of an underage girl dating back to the 1990s. “I am very pleased by this outcome,” stated prosecuting attorney Burkett. “These crimes have caused a number of people an enormous amount of pain, suffering, and trauma,” said Burkett. “Mr. Tetro had to be held accountable for this. “Judge Foradora recognized this and delivered a tough but fair sentence for these crimes.” Jeff Burkett, Jefferson County District Attorney. Tetro, the co-founder of Brookville Behavioral Health, was found guilty in January by a Jefferson County jury. The jury found him guilty of three counts of Rape (of a person under the age of 13); three counts of Involuntary Deviate Sexual Intercourse (of a person under the age of 13); three counts of Statutory Sexual Assault; and four counts of Indecent Assault (of a person under the age of 13). The investigation into Tetro began early last year after a female victim reported to police that she was sexually abused by Tetro on several occasions between September 1994 and March 1998, when she was between the ages of 6 and 10 years old, at a residence in Summerville. The victim indicated that she was “trained” by Tetro to perform sexual acts on him “as if it was normal behavior.” She also provided police with court documentation from 2008 that referenced the suspected sexual abuse and also related that Tetro had admitted to the abuse during two phone calls in 2018 and apologized to her. “I want to recognize the fine work done on this case by Tpr. Derek Weaver, my county detectives, Jeff Lee and Dave Ray, and my entire staff. Without their competent, hard work on this case, this outcome would not have been possible,” said Burkett. “I also want to thank my victim-witness coordinator, Michelle Fusco, who took excellent care of the victim and her family throughout the entire ordeal. Her kindness and goodness helped them navigate this very difficult process. “I hope that the victim and her family can now experience some peace and put this painful chapter behind them.” RELATED: Summerville Man Sentenced Up to 80 Years in Child Sex Abuse Case

In the end, Marilyn was only without Herbert for 12 hours. Herbert, 94, passed away from heart failure at 2:20 a.m. on July 12. Marilyn, 88, took her final breath at 2:20 p.m the same day. © Courtesy of Helen Iris DeLaigle TODAY, product courtesy of merchant site “My mom had Alzheimer’s and was sleeping in a bed next to him when he went,” the couple’s son, Donnie, told TODAY. “As soon as they came to take my dad, her breathing went crazy. She was shaking. It was like she knew he was gone.” Marilyn’s official cause of death was senile degeneration of the brain. Still, it’s hard not to wonder if Marilyn died of a broken heart. © Courtesy of Donnie DeLaigle TODAY, product courtesy of merchant site Herbert and Marilyn’s daughter, Helen Iris DeLaigle, said a nurse predicted her parents would die on the same day. “She pulled me aside six months ago and said, ‘When I go to check your dad’s vitals, your mom’s will be neck-in-neck with his,’” Helen Iris told TODAY. “She had never seen anything like it in her career.” Donnie, who is one of six siblings, says he can’t imagine his parents’ story ending any other way. © NBC News Herbert Delaigle and Marilyn Delaigle “Mom and Dad held hands wherever they went. That’s what they were known for in town,” Donnie, 66, said. “They held hands in their sleep.” "It embarrassed me when I was a teenager," Helen Iris admitted. "But when I got older, I was like, 'How precious.'" Marilyn explained to her children that it was because the decorated Army veteran was gone so often. Herbert served during World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. © Courtesy of Donnie DeLaigle TODAY, product courtesy of merchant site “My mother said she was going to hold on to him when he was home,” Donnie told TODAY. “So that was their thing.” The funeral, which was held on Monday, was a celebration. “We can’t be sad,” Donnie said. “Now they’re in heaven holding hands.” SEE PICTURES ; http://www.msn.com/en-us/health/health-news/couple-married-for-71-years-die-exactly-12-hours-apart/ar-AAEpHkR?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=HPCDHP
