Question of the Day
RHINEBECK — Two Norwegian journalists face trespassing charges after they were arrested on the New York estate where Chelsea Clinton is expected to get married.
New York state troopers charged Thomas Bjorn Nilsson and Kjerste Sortland with a violation Wednesday. Police say they were on the Astor Estate in this town along the Hudson River 90 miles north of New York City.
Media reports indicate Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, will marry Marc Mezvinsky on July 31 at the estate.
Helje Solberg, managing editor for Verdens Gang in Oslo, said police overreacted when Mr. Nilsson and Mr. Sortland tried to take pictures of the gate and said they were not on the property.
Neighbor charged with digging up body
WYALUSING — A mystery behind the macabre case of the elderly Pennsylvania woman who kept her beloved, and deceased, sister and husband at home has been partly solved with the filing of misdemeanor charges this week.
Neighbor James Flanagan, 62, admits he dug up the twin sister in October and moved her body inside Jean Stevens‘ home in northeastern Pennsylvania, state police said in a complaint. The body had been buried on Mrs. Stevens‘ rural property.
Mr. Flanagan faces misdemeanor charges of abuse of a corpse and has also been issued a summons.
Mrs. Stevens, 91, has not been charged with any crimes for keeping the embalmed corpses in her ramshackle home in Wyalusing. Authorities tipped to the situation discovered the bodies in June. By then, her husband, James, had been dead for more than a decade.
Although police know who dug up the husband’s body from a local cemetery, they say the statute of limitations precludes them from filing charges.
