1 El Paso & Dayton Officials Talk Trump Visits
President Trump visited El Paso and Dayton yesterday and he vowed to tone down the negative rhetoric in order to help the country heal following two mass slayings. Sort of. His day started in Ohio, where Senator Sherrod Brown says he pleaded with the President to take assault weapons off the streets of America. Talking to reporters along with Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley following the President's visit, she said Republicans have "been in bed" with the NRA for years and that she told the President that there was a time strengthening gun laws used to be a bipartisan issue, but now "Washington will not move."For his part, President Trump said that both Republicans and Democrats want to do something to stop mass shooting, but didn't say what those solutions might be. Still, he was less than thrilled with the "after visit" comments from Brown and Whaley. Pointing to the positive nature of his visits, he said seeing the commentary made them "very dishonest people."
2 Bodies of Canadian Murder Suspects Found
Two men who authorities had suspected of killing three people in Canada were likely found dead yesterday as police announced that two bodies believed to be Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, were found near a river.“The search is over,” the Manitoba police announced on Twitter. A manhunt for the pair started in July after American Chynna Deese and her Australian boyfriend, Lucas Fowler, were found dead with gunshot wounds on the side of a highway in British Columbia. A few days later and a few hundred miles away, a burning truck and an unidentified body triggered a missing-persons report for the two people who were traveling in the truck: McLeod and Schmegelsky. In late July, Canadian police charged the two teens with second-degree murder for the death of Vancouver resident Leonard Dyck, who was identified as the deceased man found near the burning truck. They were also named as suspects in the deaths of Deese and Fowler. Yesterday the Royal Canadian Mounted Police announced that items linked to the teens were discovered Friday near the Nelson River in Manitoba. At about 10 a.m. yesterday morning two bodies were found in dense brush, not far from where the items were found. “At this time, we are confident that these are the bodies of the two suspects wanted in connection with the homicides in British Columbia,” Assistant Commissioner Jane MacLatchy wrote in the announcement. “An autopsy is being scheduled in Winnipeg to confirm their identities and to determine their cause of death.”
3 Four Dead In CA Stabbing
Police in Southern California say four people are dead and two more are injured after a man described as “full of anger” went on a stabbing spree yesterday. The suspect, who has not been named, stabbed numerous people in what police described as a string of robberies at several locations across Orange County. Police in Garden Grove say the first victims were stabbed at an apartment complex. He also stabbed and killed a person at a Subway restaurant and a security guard a 7-Eleven in Santa Ana. The suspect was taken into custody at a local 7-Eleven. There were six locations in all, and when he was arrested, the man reportedly dropped a knife along with a handgun that he had taken from a guard. Police described the stabbings as random acts of violence with Garden Grove police Lt. Carl Whitney saying that motive was simple: “robbery, hate, homicide.” “We know this guy was full of anger,” Whitney told reporters. “And he harmed a lot of people tonight.”
