Family Finds Dead Body During Easter Egg Hunt

I imagine there will be several children looking to satisfy their Easter egg craving, but I doubt that any of them will find what these people found during their search. It would be interesting to find out how this story ends, especially since it was private property.

A family in Knoxville recently found more than what they were looking for during an Easter egg hunt and it certainly wasn’t pleasant. A woman who helped her four-year-old child find the eggs, stumbled across a decomposed body underneath her deck.

A family in Knoxville, Tennessee recently found more than what they were looking for during an Easter egg hunt and it certainly wasn’t pleasant. A woman who helped her four-year-old child find the eggs, stumbled across a decomposed body underneath her deck.

Police claim the remains have been in that spot for approximately 2 weeks. According to the lady who discovered the body, that time frame sounds about right.

About a week prior to the finding, she had noticed a foul smell coming from somewhere on her property. For several days, she searched her yard, but couldn’t determine the source of the horrible scent.

She reportedly had someone cut her grass and asked that person to be on the lookout for anything unusual that could be the cause of the odor. Again, nothing was found, that is until the Easter egg hunt.

The woman immediately called police after spotting the male’s body in a narrow spot about 15 to 20 feet from the outer edge of her back deck. Cops currently suspect he passed away from a medical condition, however investigators are awaiting the final results of an autopsy before positively confirming the cause of death.

Law enforcement has not yet been able to identify the victim and no explanation has been offered to explain why he was under the family’s deck.

Judge Tells Woman ‘I Hope You Die in Prison’

So what is the best way to get an appeal to go through the legal system, you have a problem in the court room of course. I know that a judge is a human being like the rest of us, but personal interjection does not sit well in a court of law, what’s next, shoot first and ask questions later?

Recently a judge in Michigan reportedly had a hard time keeping his thoughts to himself and told a woman what was really on his mind.

Emotions typically run high in a courtroom. Recently a judge in Michigan reportedly had a hard time keeping his thoughts to himself and told a woman what was really on his mind.

Specifically he said ‘I hope you die in prison. If this were a death penalty state, you’d be getting the chair’. [WLNS]

The outburst occurred during 31-year-old Camia Gamet’s sentencing hearing.

Right before Judge John McBain announced she would be spending the rest of her life behind bars for murdering her boyfriend two years ago, Gamet interrupted the victim’s aunt while she addressed the court.

As she went on with the speech, Gamet cut the relative off and inquired ‘Is that it?’.

During the very important and serious hearing, Gamet also chuckled and rolled her eyes. The judge absolutely exploded in anger and said she needed to close her mouth or he would have it duct taped shut.

‘You were relentless. You stabbed. You stabbed. You stabbed. You stabbed. You stabbed until he was dead.’ [WXYZ]

Gamet’s legal team says she killed in self defense and plans on appealing the sentence.

At the risk of sounding like a buzz killer, I know this is Easter Weekend and many people will be taking part in a variety of different activities. The line to the candy store is probably very long, is anyone actually celebrating the true reason for Easter?

Easter is coming, and, if you’re like many people around the US, you’re anxiously anticipating the arrival of the Easter Bunny – and several pounds of chocolate and candy.

While you count down the hours, check out these 10 uncommon facts about the holiday.

Number 10. Most Americans agree on how to eat a chocolate bunny. 76 percent say the proper way to do it is ears first.

Number 9. Some world traditions are incredibly elaborate. In Guatemala, for example, carpets stretching up to a mile-long are made from flowers and sawdust during the weeks before Easter. On the day of the holiday, people walk on it on their way to church.

Number 8. There’s an Easter egg worth over 8 million dollars. Described as a cross between a Faberge and the Damien Hirst skull, the ornament is covered with over a thousand diamonds. Nested inside is a gold egg with a rock crystal dove inside that.

Number 7. The Easter Bunny has a mysterious past. Details of its emergence as a symbol of the holiday are sketchy, but according to history.com, it traveled to America with the Germans in the 1700’s. The country has long told stories about an egg-laying hare.

Number 6. The holiday brings out some people’s inner jokester. Perhaps giddy because it’s springtime, manufacturers make all sorts of goofy merchandise for Easter. Notable among the stuff is a card that features terrified eggs, a dish of colored liquid, and the caption ‘Where Eggs Come To Dye’.

Number 5. Egg decorating goes back hundreds of years. History.com says that the tradition dates back to the 13th century. At the time, eggs were a mandatory Lenten sacrifice, so in preparation for the day they could once again be enjoyed, people made them extra special by embellishing them.

Number 4. In Australia they have an Easter Bilby instead of a bunny. Well, at least some people are trying to make that the case.

“Bilbys can be found only in Australia. They are endemic to this country. There’s nothing like them anywhere else in the world.” [ABC Radio Australia]

Number 3. The annual White House Easter Egg Roll used to be held at the U.S. Capitol. Concerns for the preservation of the terraced lawn led to the signing of a bill that outlawed the use of the location.

Number 2. A seriously large amount of candy is sold for the holiday. Annually, about 2 billion dollars worth of sweet stuff ends up in the hands, baskets, and stomachs of American consumers.

Number 1. The largest egg hunt in history was held at Cypress Gardens in 2007. The Florida theme park hid over half a million eggs. Nearly 10 thousand children and their parents scoured the grounds looking for them.

I wonder how it would feel to have an entire community against you and other members of your family?

 

I imagine that is what a police department with no apparent regard for the people they serve must have to face daily. 

 

Apparently, that is what the uniformed officers in the Albuquerque have to face when they report to duty.

 

By comparison, consider a family that kicks the dog, tortures the cat and frightens the people that pass in front of their house, and you might get the picture.

 

The only difference is that this family is protected by the law, and they wear badges. Criminals are everywhere; nobody is safe anymore.

The recent tragedy that involved  a South Korean Vessel is just another of many accidents that may have been avoided. Are we becoming complacent in the tools we use to make our lives easier?

Is this a reason to increase our investigations into proper operations and what exactly does it say for the people who hold your lives in your hands when they are the first to jump ship, are they cowards or merely trying to survive? Is the old cliche about a captain never abandoning his ship just a simple wife’s tale?

I expect that people who choose certain kinds of transportation should be a little concerned about who is at the wheel, because it could be feasible that pretty soon you could be getting ready to crash, look out the window and see your captain  wearing a parachute waving.

 

Disbanded NYPD Unit That Spied On Muslims: Who Wants It Back

Okay so we have a cross-section of society that has been offended by something that the government did in order to help protect its citizens, should we be concerned. I am not into conspiracy theories, but I think the bigger question. here should be whether these things that keep happening to us are driven by our leadership to give them more control.

The disbanding of a controversial post-9/11 NYPD surveillance unit met wide praise from civil rights and Muslim leaders, but some upped the rhetoric.
