UPDATE post # 38 ^^^

Scrambling for understanding’: Church hosts vigil for Sugar Land family found dead

As investigators work to figure out exactly what happened and a reason behind the deaths, the community is doing all they can to help one another during such a difficult time.

“I guess it was comforting to be able to share some time with other people that are grieving also and processing our thoughts together,” said Mark Meeker, who was at the vigil.

Many in attendance also said they are praying for the family’s daughter, who friends said was away at college when the deaths occurred.

Sheriff: Texas man accused of hanging puppy `out of boredom'
A 21-year-old Texas man is accused of hanging a small puppy by the neck from a tree and posting a video of the deed on Facebook

MONTE ALTO, Texas -- A Texas man accused of hanging a small puppy by the neck from a tree and posting a video on Facebook told deputies that he was acting “out of boredom,” a sheriff said.

Claudio Gomez, 21, of Monte Alto, Texas, was being held Friday in the Hidalgo County Jail, charged with torturing a non-livestock animal, a third-degree felony punishable by two to 10 years in prison. Bond was set at $10,000.


Sheriff's Sgt. Frank Medrano said deputies traced the video to Gomez, who Medrano says admitted to hanging the dog. Gomez was arrested on Wednesday.

Medrano said authorities later found the puppy dead.

Rubio Salinas, Gomez's attorney, declined to comment on the case until he could confer with his client.

Monte Alto is an unincorporated community of about 2,100 residents 20 miles (33 kilometers) northeast of McAllen.

Former Colorado Springs mayoral candidate accused of drugging new mom with cupcake, trying to steal baby

February 17, 2020

A Washington state woman who unsuccessfully ran for mayor of Colorado Springs in 2019 has been accused of trying to kidnap a three-week-old baby. The 38-year-old who, according to authorities went by several aliases, was released on a $50,000 bond and is expected to be arraigned Tuesday.

Juliette Parker and her teenage daughter are suspected of posing as photographers and drugging a new mother to try and steal her infant. Parker was released Sunday afternoon on a $50,000 bond, reports correspondent Carter Evans.

Since her arrest, authorities tell CBS News more than 10 people say Parker came to their homes to take photos. Investigators believe she was searching for the baby she wanted to steal.

Authorities say Parker used social media to lure in unsuspecting moms, offering free maternity and newborn photos. She said she wanted to build her portfolio, but detectives allege her real motive was much more sinister.

"She wanted a girl," said Ed Troyer of the Pierce County Sheriff's Department. "She wanted them five weeks and younger so she could raise it herself, take it out of state and pretend it was a newborn of her own."

A mom in Washington state answered the post, inviting Parker into her home three times. Police said the woman spotted Parker taking selfies with the baby and wiping down her fingerprints from items she touched inside the home.

During the third visit, authorities said Parker and her 16-year-old daughter gave the woman a cupcake. The mom suddenly began vomiting and feeling numb and drowsy. She ordered the two to leave and called 911, only to realize her house keys were stolen.

"Basically she was drugged," said Troyer. "They put drugs in a cupcake, she ate it, and they attempted to take her kid."

Parker and her daughter were arrested at their house about 40 miles south of Seattle.

Parker has been charged with attempted kidnapping and assault. Her attorney declined to speak with "CBS This Morning." Authorities haven't released details about Parker's daughter because she is a minor.

As for the alleged victim, she's been released from the hospital.

I have no words that wouldn't be repeating what I think of whoever does these types of thing and did this one!! We need a word and emoticon just for such people but I don't think there is one harsh enough! Where is the guillotine and the electric chair, or how about the rope? Just venting. They are BABIES for crying out loud. Little kids.
