Question of the Day
TVA ask its neighbors to watch for copper thieves
JOHNSON CITY — The Tennessee Valley Authority is asking people who live near its power substations to watch for copper thieves.
Utility officers have been going door to door in neighborhoods where TVA has switch yards, electricity substations and construction sites setting up what are effectively neighborhood watch programs in which they ask residents to report any suspicious activity.
Police say baby sitter confesses to child-killing
FORT WAYNE — A baby sitter and trusted neighbor has confessed that he bludgeoned a 9-year-old Indiana girl to death with a brick, then dismembered her, hiding her head, hands and feet at his home and dumping the rest of her remains nearby, police said Tuesday.
Allen County sheriff’s investigators said in an affidavit that 39-year-old Michael Plumadore admits he killed Aliahna Lemmon on Thursday, when she and her two younger sisters were staying with him because their mother had been sick with the flu.
According to the affidavit, the man told police that after beating Aliahna to death, he stuffed her body into trash bags and hid her in the freezer at his home in a rundown trailer park in Fort Wayne.
Plane crash probe: Owner warned about maneuver
NEWARK — The owner of a small plane who perished along with four others in a 2010 crash told a friend the aircraft was leaking fuel and oil on the day of the crash, according to documents from a federal investigation.
The friend, an airplane mechanic, told investigators he had previously cautioned owner Jacek Mazurek against performing a specific aerial maneuver that the pilot may have attempted just before the accident.
“I’m like, ‘You can’t do that with this airplane, it’s not built for that,’” Michael Petrossian said Tuesday. “I guess he didn’t heed my warning and did it again anyway.”
The February 2010 crash killed Mr. Mazurek, his 14-year-old son, Patryk, and three Polish tourists who were family friends of the 45-year-old pilot.
