German Priest Confesses At Mass To Embezzling Church Funds To Gamble

A Catholic Priest in Germany has actually confessed to embezzling a ton of money from his church to Gamble on the net.

The Catholic Priest admitted to his churchgoers throughout Sunday mass that he had actually been enticed by an online lotto game rip-off as well as took EUR120,000($137,000 bucks) from church funds.

RT records: The Priest from the eastern German community of Ballenstedt admitted his misdeeds to around 40 of his congregants at a solution on Sunday. “I was misled by net defrauders” that were running a phony lotto game, Bernard Gawlytta stated in a psychological declaration, including that the cybercriminals had actually encouraged him “to move cash to them a number of times.” The churchgoers of St. Elisabeth Church supposedly responded into “really silently.”

The lotto game legend of the 64- year-old Catholic preacher began in springtime 2017, when he obtained an e-mail from an intended ‘law practice’ declaring that he hit the mark in a Spanish lotto game as well as the scheduled large amount of no much less than EUR935,000($ 1.06 million).

Nonetheless, he needed to pay EUR35,000($40,000) in charges to obtain the cash. Without a doubt, he paid with his very own cash initially. Yet rather than the treasured reward, even more e-mails got here, requiring even more cash. After some questions, Gawlytta determined to breach the rule ‘Thou shalt not swipe’ as well as take funds from the church this summertime. “My mind has actually quit,” the clergyman, later on, stated, confessing his wrongs to Bild paper.

Nonetheless, the voice of principles– or anxiety of penalty– obviously dominated the voice of ‘Satan’ as the clergyman transformed himself into authorities as well as his diocesan on Friday, to expose whatever concerning embezzling church funds. The diocesan, Gerhard Feige, responded sternly, removing the clergyman of his article on the church board as well as guaranteed better actions.

Boat trapped on Chain of Rocks likely ‘sunk by storms’

Boat trapped on Chain of Rocks likely ‘sunk by storms’

ST. LOUIS – After nearly a month trapped in the middle of the Mississippi River, the boat named the White Widow is now gone.

The tow company commissioned to remove it—TowBoat US—said the vessel is most likely now on the river floor.

“Until it shows up some time with low water or something, it’s probably going to be there forever because trying to find it is going to be pretty tough,” said Paul Hopkins, owner of TowBoat US and Port Charles Harbor.

TowBoat US waited three weeks for insurance approval to remove the boat but to no avail. But when the White Widow went missing Monday, they got the green light to search.

All they found was a dinghy.

They shared the news with the boat’s owner.

“He was watching the weather also and watching the river levels rising from the storms up north so he figured this would happen,” Hopkins said.

Since getting stuck, crowds of people have been visiting the riverbanks to see the boat for themselves.

“We were waiting for it to move, each time we came out we swore it looked like it moved a little more,” said tourist Terry Goette.

Hopkins said the boat is probably 15-20 feet high and the water is around 30 feet deep.

Now most likely swallowed up, with all the owner’s belongings in it, by the added rain totals.

“I wanted to come back and see what happens and see if we could catch them in the action of doing it, getting it out,” said tourist Bruce Graves.

Recovering the vessel at this point would be a tough job.

“You’d have to just search it with a sonar defender and look for a big object underwater, so if they wanted us to do that, we would do that, but otherwise we’d never know where it is,” Hopkins said.

As of right now, there are no more search efforts underway. It’s now up to the boat owner to move forward.

Police admit to mistaking Roberta Laundrie for Brian Laundrie during week he disappeared

Police admit to mistaking Roberta Laundrie for Brian Laundrie during week he disappeared

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – North Port Police Department officials have told WINK that investigators made mistakes in Brian Laundrie’s case. The department said they thought they were keeping a close eye on Laundrie before he went missing, but actually confused him for his mother.

According to the North Port Police Department, police started watching the Laundrie family home after Petito was reported missing. Officers reported seeing Brian Laundrie leave in a gray Mustang Sept. 13, but spokesperson Josh Taylor said he thinks they mistook Brian’s mother for her son when the Mustang returned on Sept. 15.

“When the family reported him [missing] on Friday that was certainly news to us that they had not seen him,” Taylor said. “We thought that we’d seen Brian initially come back into that home on that Wednesday.”

The Laundries initially said that they hadn’t seen Brian since Tuesday, but later changed their statement to Monday.

How the mixup happened is not entirely clear. Taylor said that Roberta Laundrie was wearing a baseball cap and that the two are “kind of built similarly.”

“They had returned from the park with that Mustang. So who does that? Right? Like, if you think your son’s missing since Tuesday, you’re going to bring his car back to the home. So it didn’t make sense that anyone would do that if he wasn’t there. So the individual getting out with a baseball cap we thought was Brian,” said Taylor.

During a North Port police news conference on Sept. 16, Chief Todd Garrison voiced his frustration with the lack of answers on Gabby Petito’s disappearance.

Garrison added that there was no criminality suspected in the case at the time, and police were only investigating a missing person case with the sole focus of finding Petito.

A reporter asked Chief Garrison at the news conference, “Do you know where Brian Laundrie is right now?” Garrison responded, “yes,” apparently thinking he was inside the family home.

The Laundries’ family attorney Steve Bertolino confirmed the next day that the whereabouts of their son were unknown.

That statement came after police spent more than two hours at the Laundrie family home, at the family’s request.

NewsNation’s Brian Entin reported that police had kept tabs on Laundrie before he disappeared by placing surveillance cameras around his family’s home, but they missed him leaving to go to the reserve. Authorities said the lack of charges against Laundrie prevented them from taking more drastic measures.

“What I’ll say is that we were the ones doing everything in our power to get answers on this. If mistakes were made, there’s human error involved in every investigation. It certainly wasn’t from a lack of taking it seriously or hustle or knowledge. Sometimes things happen,” Taylor said.

According to Bertolino, Brian’s parents are “grieving privately in Florida,” with their daughter Cassie. So far, they don’t have a formal funeral plan for Brian.

Family saved by going to basement moments before Chester tornado

Family saved by going to basement moments before Chester tornado

CHESTER, Ill. – Ameren Illinois crews have been busy all through the night and today dealing with the storm damage in multiple communities about an hour southeast of St. Louis.

A tornado touched down in Randolph County Sunday evening, ripping up trees and powerlines, and flinging debris every which way. One local family avoided catastrophe by heading into their basement, just moments before the tornado arrived.

“I estimate at 9:20 (p.m.) the roof got sucked off that house and we had like a minute to get downstairs, covered ourselves in the basement, and the roof was gone,” said Dennis Schnoeker Jr. “Then we packed up our stuff and went to Steeleville with my mother and here we are, we’re alive, we made it through.”

Extensive damage could be seen throughout the county in the light of day on Monday.

“We have not had any reports of any injuries at this time. It’s a miracle; it really is,” said Chief Deputy Jarrod Peters, Randolph County Sheriff’s Office. For something like this to come around, especially during the nighttime, or getting close to when it’s getting dark, it’s a rarity for something like this; especially for a storm of this category.”

In nearby Bremen, Illinois, the path of destruction could be seen Monday from toppled trailers to overturned trees.

“Heed the warnings and get in your basement and stay there,” Schnoeker said. “We all want to see what’s going on. I would never do it again. I would never watch and sit outside and watch this happen when they say get in the basement I’m going to the basement.”

Schnoeker believes his house might be a loss after the roof was torn off since it continued to rain all night long.
