Burgas Prison: Inmate Killed in Altercation

A prisoner has died in Burgas, BNT reported. Two prisoners got into a fight, and one of them died after the fight.

On-site inspection begins. The report of the incident in the Burgas prison was received around 11:00 a.m. in one of the buildings. Shortly after an altercation between two inmates – 30 and 66 years old, serving their sentence for committed thefts, who were broken up by the guards on duty, the older one fell to the ground and the medic who arrived on the scene noted the lack of vital signs.

A team of employees from the “Criminal Police” department and the “Investigation” department at the Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs – Burgas was formed in due time, which carried out an initial inspection. Visible serious injuries on the body of the 66-year-old man were not noticed. His body was taken for an autopsy to “Forensic Medicine” at the Central Burgas Hospital.

So far, a causal relationship between the prevention and the death that has occurred cannot be confirmed. The data from the upcoming autopsy will be awaited, which will indisputably determine the cause of the loss of vital signs in the 66-year-old inmate. Pre-trial proceedings have been initiated in the case.


Ukraine and Moldova: Council adopts its negotiating mandate to renew the suspension of import duties and quotas

The ambassadors of the EU member states agreed today on the Council’s negotiating mandate on two legislative proposals which aim to renew the suspension of import duties and quotas on Ukrainian and Moldovan exports to the EU for another year.

The proposal concerning autonomous trade measures for Ukraine aims to renew the suspension of import duties and quotas for another year (from 6 June 2024 to 5 June 2025), while reinforcing protection for sensitive agricultural products, by beefing up the safeguard measures already included in the current regulation (EU) 2023/1077 and including a new automatic safeguard for certain sensitive products.

The proposal concerning autonomous trade measures for Moldova aims to renew the suspension of import duties and quotas for another year (from 25 July 2024 to 24 July 2025), while reinforcing protection for sensitive agricultural products, by beefing up the safeguard measures already included in the current regulation (EU) 2023/1524.

By renewing these measures, the EU will continue to support and foster the trade flows from Ukraine to the EU and the rest of the world, and will contribute to establishing the conditions for enhanced economic and trade relations leading towards Ukraine’s gradual integration in the EU internal market.

Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified war of aggression against Ukraine also continues to have a negative impact on Moldova’s ability to trade with the rest of the world. The renewal of these measures will help to maintain the conditions necessary to enable Moldova continue its trade relations with the EU and with the rest of the world via the EU.

Background and next steps

On 31 January 2024, the European Commission (Commissioner for Trade, Valdis Dombrovskis) submitted to the Council the two proposals to renew the suspension of import duties and quotas on Ukrainian and Moldovan exports to the EU for another year.

The Permanent Representatives Committee approved the text of the Commission’s proposal without any modifications, with a view to reaching an agreement at first reading with the European Parliament.

The European Parliament’s Committee on International Trade (INTA) intends to hold a vote on the proposal at its meeting on 7 March 2024. The European Parliament aims to adopt its position at first reading in one of its plenary sessions in April 2024.

The regulations are then to be adopted by the Council, signed by the representatives of the Council and the European Parliament and published in the Official Journal, before entering into force.


Severed human leg found on NYC subway tracks in Bronx: police

This story discusses suicide. If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, please contact the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline at 988 or 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

A severed human leg found over the weekend in the Bronx is reportedly suspected to be the partial remains of a man dragged for miles by the subway.

Authorities made the grisly discovery when Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) workers found a man’s left leg on the tracks at around 1:30 p.m. The human remains were in the path of the northbound 4 train between the 167 Street and 170 Street stations, the New York Police Department said.

Police were called to the scene. “Upon arrival, officers observed a human leg along the roadbed. The leg was removed, and the investigation remains ongoing,” an NYPD spokesman told Fox News Digital.

According to the New York Post, investigators believe the leg was separated from a man hit by a train miles away and days earlier.

A man’s body was found after either falling or jumping on the tracks, police sources told the paper. The body was reportedly missing its left leg.

The incomplete remains were found at the Spring Street station in Lower Manhattan, at least 9 miles away from where the human leg was discovered, the Post reported.

Police do not suspect a crime in the man’s death, the report said.

The working theory, according to the Post, is that a train could have dragged the leg for miles of track up to the 167th Street stop in the Bronx, where MTA workers found it while plowing snow away from the tracks.

The leg was removed from the scene and transported to the medical examiner’s office for testing. Police sources told the Post they suspect DNA and blood tests will reveal the limb is a match for the human remains found, although that is not yet confirmed.

The NYPD did not respond to a follow-up request for comment. Law enforcement personnel typically do not make statements about ongoing investigations.

Authorities have not yet released the identity of the man found dead, the Post reported.

Data from the MTA shows a concerning rise in the number of train collisions with people in New York City, FOX 5 New York reported.

In 2022, there were 324 incidents in which 88 people were killed. Police made nearly 1,000 arrests of subway surfers that year, according to the MTA.

Most incidents of people being struck by trains involve mentally ill individuals or people who attempt suicide, the MTA said.


Gabby Petito’s parents reach settlement with Laundrie family and attorney Steve Bertolino in Florida lawsuit

The parents of Gabby Petito, a 22-year-old travel blogger whose fiance Brian Laundrie killed her in Wyoming on a cross-country “van life” road trip, have reached a settlement in a civil lawsuit against his parents and their attorney Steve Bertolino.

“Christopher and Roberta Laundrie and I participated in mediation with the Petito family and the civil lawsuit has now been resolved,” he told Fox News Digital Wednesday evening, after the parties met with a third-party mediator for much of the day. “The terms of the resolution are confidential, and we look forward to putting this matter behind us.”

Nothing had been officially filed Wednesday evening, but both sides acknowledged the settlement had been reached after an exhausting session.

Petito’s parents, Joseph Petito and Nichole Schmidt, sued Christopher and Roberta Laundrie and later added Bertolino to the case, accusing the trio of inflicting emotional distress by misleading them about the missing woman’s whereabouts before her remains were found north of Jackson, Wyoming.

The undisclosed settlement brings an emotional proceeding that has dragged on for over a year to a close.

In a series of depositions unsealed this month, the Laundries acknowledged they had concerns for Petito’s well-being when their son showed up on their Florida doorstep in her van without her, but they denied having any knowledge of her fate before an FBI-led search uncovered her remains on Sept. 19, 2021.

In his own deposition, Joseph Petito was audibly frustrated with the process and lashed out at attorneys for the Laundries and Bertolino.

The lawsuit alleged his parents knew about the murder and tried to conceal it and help him evade justice.

Days before search teams found Petito, Laundrie slipped away into the night and killed himself, leaving behind a suicide note and confession in a waterproof bag found weeks later.

Petito and Schmidt previously rejected a settlement offer, but their attorney had said they would be open to one under different terms.

Reilly recently asked Bertolino to turn over insurance information that could play a role in any civil judgment or come up in mediation.

The scheduled talks came shortly after Reilly dropped efforts to have the court force Bertolino to testify about his private conversations with Brian Laundrie, which he argued are protected by attorney-client privilege.

If the negotiations had failed, trial would have commenced on May 13.

The two families previously settled a wrongful death lawsuit for $3 million.

Reilly at the time called the sum “an arbitrary number,” but “whatever monies they do receive will help Gabby’s family in their endeavors with the Gabby Petito Foundation.”

A Social Media Post Featured a 5-Year-Old Waxing a Woman’s Nude Body. The Girl’s Mom Was Just Arrested

A Memphis woman has been arrested and charged with child neglect after allegedly posting videos to social media showing her 5-year-old daughter waxing several naked adults.

Records reviewed by PEOPLE show the woman, 30-year-old Jasmine Moss, is currently in police custody in Shelby County, Tenn. The Memphis Police Department said in a statement that Moss was charged with child neglect and a bond has not been set.

Local news station WREG reported that police had received more than 80 complaints about Moss and her social media videos last week.

The videos, which were posted online to advertise her hair removal business, allegedly showed her 5-year-old daughter working with hot wax and applying it to a number of nude women.

Police reviewed the social media videos and three images that allegedly showed the 5-year-old applying wax to the nude pubic areas of several adults, according to a WMCTV report.

The Memphis Police Department said in a statement that the department’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force began to investigate the clips and a warrant was issued for Moss’ arrest the day after it began reviewing the clips.

Moss was then arrested, the department said.

The woman’s hair removal business is believed to have been run out of her home in Memphis, local WREG reported.

The outlet reported that Moss had allegedly “bragged” online about her daughter performing hair removal services on 24 customers, earning $700 for her work. Moss soon began to receive backlash online and deleted her social media posts, according to WREG.

“That would not even be safe, much less legal,” Valerie Yates, a professional esthetician in the Memphis area told the outlet. “You don’t know what people do in their house. Even though their house should be clean, you don’t know if it is. You don’t know who is going to come in and out of their house while you’re laying on their table.”

Waffle House shooting in Indianapolis leaves 1 dead, 5 injured

One woman was killed and five other people were wounded when an argument escalated to gunfire at a Waffle House restaurant in Indianapolis, police said. Officers responded to a report of a shooting at the restaurant around 12:30 a.m., the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement.

Five people with gunshot wounds were transported to a hospital, including a woman who was in critical condition and died, police said.

The other victims — a woman and three men — all were listed in stable condition. A sixth man who was shot traveled separately to a hospital and was listed in critical condition, police said. Investigators believe an altercation between two groups at the restaurant escalated to gunfire.

It was not immediately clear if any of the victims fired shots, police said.

No one has been arrested and police are investigating. Two police officers remained at the scene Monday morning around 10 a.m. as members of the Indianapolis-Marion County forensic services agency crime scene unit entered the building. Law enforcement took down police tape that barricaded the restaurant’s parking lot around 10:30 a.m.


ITD crews repairing Ovid bridge

Beginning Thursday, the Idaho Transportation Department will start replacement of the concrete approach slabs on the US-89 bridge near Ovid.

This is follow-up to recent pothole repairs done last month.

Single-lane closures will be in place while work is being done.

The project will take until the end of March to complete.

As temperatures increase, the frozen base underneath the road thaws and becomes saturated with water. This creates a weaker section below the pavement that can lead to potholes and cracks.

In the coming months, ITD crews will be working on potholes throughout the state. Drivers should watch for crews on roadways and move over.
