Police ask for help identifying 2 suspects in Monday morning murder

ST. LOUIS – Police are asking for the public’s help identifying two suspects in the murder of Demetrise Thomas, 27, who was shot and killed Monday.

Thomas was shot in the stomach just before 1:00 a.m. in the 500 block of North 20th Street. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

FOX 2’s Nissan Rogue Runner reporter Jason Maxwell was at the scene.

A man and a woman are seen in surveillance video from the scene at the time of the incident.

Police said a man in his late teens to early twenties is seen firing shots during the incident. He has a small frame, thin build, a light to medium complexion, with a low afro-natural hairstyle. He was wearing a plain white t-shirt with shorts that were light blue on the right leg and yellow on the left leg. He was also wearing white low top athletic shoes and possibly had a grey or brown backpack. He was “armed with a dark-framed pistol.”

Police said the woman looked to be in her late teens to early twenties with a small frame, heavy build, a light to medium complexion with shoulder-length straight hair. She was wearing a light-green hooded sweatshirt with matching pants and black slip-on shoes (similar to Crocs). She had a black crossbody purse with her as well. Her face is partially concealed in the video with a light-blue medical mask.

At about 8:40 p.m. Monday night at the same location Cedric Owens, 34, was shot and killed. Police said they do “not believe there are any concrete connections” to that murder.

Draft of Arizona GOP’s vote review finds wider Biden win

Draft of Arizona GOP’s vote review finds wider Biden win

PHOENIX (AP) — A draft report of the election review in Arizona’s largest county by supporters of former President Donald Trump found that President Joe Biden did indeed win the 2020 presidential contest there, an embarrassing end to a bizarre quest to find evidence supporting Trump’s false claim that he lost because of fraud.

The final report was scheduled to be released Friday afternoon, the result of a months-long partisan review funded in part by taxpayers. The draft document began to circulate Thursday night showing the results of the review’s chaotic hand count of all 2.1 million ballots in Maricopa County, home to Phoenix. The tally in the draft document showed a net gain of 360 votes for Biden over the official results.

The Maricopa County Attorney’s office provided the draft to The Associated Press. Republican Senate President Karen Fann said in a text message the document was “a leaked draft from three days ago,” but did not dispute its authenticity. She would not say if the vote tally in the draft had changed over the course of the week, saying she had signed a nondisclosure agreement.

  • 1632509881 921 Draft of Arizona GOPs vote review finds wider Biden win
  • 1632509881 707 Draft of Arizona GOPs vote review finds wider Biden win
  • 1632509881 271 Draft of Arizona GOPs vote review finds wider Biden win

Whatever the final count cited in the report, it has no bearing on the official, certified reports in Maricopa County or Arizona. Two previous election audits conducted by nonpartisan professionals according to industry standards also found that Biden won both.

Still, for many critics the draft’s tally underscored the dangerous futility of the exercise, which has helped fuel voter skepticism about elections and spawned copycats audits around the country.

“This means the tabulation equipment counted the ballots as they were designed to do, and the results reflect the will of the voters,” said Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Jack Sellers, a Republican. “That should be the end of the story. Everything else is just noise.”

Adrian Fontes, a Democrat who oversaw the Maricopa County election office during the 2020 election, said that political noise is true purpose of the review.

“They are trying to scare people into doubting the system is actually working,” he said. “That is their motive. They want to destroy public confidence in our systems.”

The draft claims a number of shortcomings in election procedures, suggested the final tally still could not be relied upon and recommended several changes to state law. But the review previously made a series offalse allegations that have since been retracted about how the election was handled in Maricopa County, which is run by a Republican majority on the county commission.

“Unfortunately, the report is also littered with errors & faulty conclusions about how Maricopa County conducted the 2020 General Election,” Maricopa County officials said on Twitter.

Election officials say that’s because the audit team is biased, has no experience in the complex field of election audits and ignored the detailed vote-counting procedures in Arizona law.

Two of the recommendations in the draft report stood out because they showed its authors misunderstood election procedures — that there should be paper ballot backups and that voting machines should not be connected to the internet. All Arizona ballots are already paper, with machines only used to tabulate the votes and no election equipment is ever connected to the internet.

“Every time Trump and his supporters have been given a forum to prove this case, they have swung and missed,” said Ben Ginsberg, a longtime Republican election attorney and vocal critic of Trump’s push to overturn the election.

Despite being widely mocked, the Arizona review has become a model that Trump supporters are eagerly pushing to replicate in other swing states where Biden won. Pennsylvania’s Democratic attorney general sued Thursday to block a GOP-issued subpoena for a wide array of election materials. In Wisconsin, a retired conservative state Supreme Court justice is leading a Republican-ordered investigation into the 2020 election, and this week threatened to subpoena election officials who don’t comply.

None of these reviews can change Biden’s victory, which was certified by officials in each of the swing states he won and by Congress on Jan. 6 — after Trump’s supporters, fueled by the same false charges that generated the audits, stormed the Capitol to try to prevent certification of his loss.

The election review was run by Doug Logan, the CEO of a cybersecurity firm called Cyber Ninjas, that has never conducted an election audit before. Logan previously worked with attorneys and Trump supporters trying to overturn the 2020 presidential election and appeared in a film questioning the results of the contest while the review was ongoing.

Logan and others were scheduled to make their presentations to two Arizona senators Friday afternoon. The team includes Shiva Ayyadurai, who has developed a loyal following for promoting COVID-19 misinformation on social media and will discuss his review of signatures on mail ballots.

The review has a history of exploring outlandish conspiracy theories, dedicating time to checking for bamboo fibers on ballots to see if they were secretly shipped in from Asia. It’s also served as a content-generation machine for Trump’s effort to continue to sow skepticism about his loss, pumping out misleading and out of context information that the former president has continued to circulate long after it’s been debunked.

In July, for example, Logan laid out a series of claims stemming from his misunderstanding of the election data he was analyzing, including that 74,000 mail ballots that were recorded as received but not sent. Trump repeatedly amplified the claims. But they had innocuous explanations.

The Senate agreed to spend $150,000 on the audit, plus security and facility costs. That pales in comparison to the nearly $5.7 million contributed as of late July by Trump allies.

Maricopa County’s official vote count was conducted in front of bipartisan observers, as were legally required audits meant to ensure voting machines work properly. A partial hand count spot check found a perfect match.

Two extra post-election reviews by federally certified election experts also found no evidence that voting machines switched votes or were connected to the internet. The Board of Supervisors commissioned the extraordinary reviews in an effort to prove to Trump backers that there were no problems, but Fann and others backing her partisan review were not convinced.

Officials: All migrants are gone from Texas border camp

Officials: All migrants are gone from Texas border camp

By MARÍA VERZA and JUAN LOZANO

DEL RIO, Texas (AP) — The mayor of a Texas border city where thousands of Haitian migrants camped in recent days says it’s now empty.

Del Rio Mayor Bruno Lozano said at a news conference Friday that the clearing of the camp was “phenomenal news.”

It comes just days after nearly 15,000 migrants gathered under the bridge that connects Del Rio and Ciudad Acuña, Mexico. The number peaked Saturday as migrants driven by confusion over the Biden administration’s policies and misinformation on social media converged at the border crossing trying to seek asylum.

Many face expulsion to their home country.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. AP’s earlier story follows below.

DEL RIO, Texas (AP) — Only 225 migrants remained in a Texas border camp where almost 15,000 mostly Haitian migrants had gathered just days ago hoping to seek asylum, the top elected official in Val Verde County said Friday.

County Judge Lewis Owens told The Associated Press in a text message that he’s been told all of the migrants will be removed by the end of the day — a dramatic change from Saturday, when the number peaked as migrants driven by confusion over the Biden administration’s policies and misinformation on social media converged at the border crossing between Del Rio, Texas, and Ciudad Acuña, Mexico.

Many face expulsion because they are not covered by protections recently extended by the Biden administration to the more than 100,000 Haitian migrants already in the U.S. — many of whom left their homeland after its devastating 2010 earthquake — citing security concerns and social unrest in the Western Hemisphere’s poorest country.

The United States and Mexico appeared eager to end the increasingly politicized humanitarian situation that prompted the resignation of the U.S. special envoy to Haiti and widespread outrage after images emerged of border agents maneuvering their horses to forcibly block and move migrants.

On Friday, President Joe Biden said the way the agents used their horses was “horrible” and that “people will pay” as a result. The agents have been assigned to administrative duties while the administration investigates.

“There’ will be consequences,” Biden told reporters. “It’s an embarrassment, but it’s beyond an embarrassment — it’s dangerous, it’s wrong, it sends the wrong message around the world and sends the wrong message at home. It’s simply not who we are.”

Meanwhile, Homeland Security has said that nearly 2,000 Haitians have been rapidly expelled on flights since Sunday under pandemic powers that deny people the chance to seek asylum. About 3,900 were being processed for a possible return to Haiti or placement in U.S. immigration court proceedings. Others have been released in the U.S. with notices to appear in court or to report to immigration authorities. Thousands have returned to Mexico.

A U.S. official said Thursday that authorities expected the camp to be empty in about two days. The official had direct knowledge but was not authorized to speak publicly. Homeland Security had planned to send up to seven daily flights but flew only three on Wednesday and five on Thursday because of issues with contractors and mechanical delays, the official said. Seven flights were scheduled to Haiti on Friday, six on Saturday and seven on Sunday.

And in Mexico, just over 100 migrants, most of them single men, remained Friday morning in the riverside camp in Ciudad Acuña.

Dozens of families who had been there crossed back to Del Rio overnight after Mexican authorities left the area. With the river running higher, some Border Patrol agents helped families who were struggling to cross with children.

Some migrants also moved to small hotels or private homes in Ciudad Acuña. Authorities detained six migrants at one on Thursday afternoon.

Luxon, a 31-year-old Haitian migrant who withheld his last name out of fear, said he was leaving with his wife and son for Mexicali, about 900 miles west along Mexico’s border with California.

“The option was to go to a place where there aren’t a lot of people and there request documents to be legal in Mexico,” he said.

Asked about the situation in Ciudad Acuña on Friday, Mexico President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said, “we don’t want Mexico to be a migrant camp, we want the problem to be addressed fully.”

Some Haitians are being allowed to remain in the U.S. at least temporarily to seek asylum or to stay under some other claim to residency, with notices to appear later before immigration authorities. DHS officials declined to specify the number but said they are people with particular “vulnerabilities,” meaning they are pregnant, have young children or the U.S. doesn’t have the capacity to hold them in detention, especially during the pandemic.

The government has no plans to stop expelling others on public health grounds despite pressure from Democratic lawmakers, who say migrants are being sent back to a troubled country that some left more than a decade ago.

The Trump administration enacted the policy in March 2020 to justify restrictive immigration policies in an effort to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The Biden administration has used it to justify the deportation of Haitian migrants.

A federal judge late last week ruled that the rule was improper and gave the government two weeks to halt it, but the Biden administration appealed.

Officials said the U.S. State Department is in talks with Brazil and Chile to allow some Haitians who previously resided there to return, but it’s complicated because some of them no longer have legal status there.

The Biden administration’s special envoy to Haiti, Daniel Foote, submitted a letter of resignation on Thursday protesting the “inhumane” large-scale expulsions of Haitian migrants.

Foote, who was appointed in July, wrote to Secretary of State Antony Blinken, saying he was stepping down immediately “with deep disappointment and apologies to those seeking crucial changes.”

“I will not be associated with the United States inhumane, counterproductive decision to deport thousands of Haitian refugees and illegal immigrants to Haiti, a country where American officials are confined to secure compounds because of the danger posed by armed gangs to daily life,” he wrote. “Our policy approach to Haiti remains deeply flawed, and my policy recommendations have been ignored and dismissed, when not edited to project a narrative different from my own.”

The career diplomat was known to be deeply frustrated with what he considered a lack of urgency in Washington and a glacial pace on efforts to improve conditions in Haiti.

State Department spokesman Ned Price disputed Foote’s assertions, saying his proposals had been “fully considered in a rigorous and transparent policy process.”

“Some of those proposals were determined to be harmful to our commitment to the promotion of democracy in Haiti and were rejected during the policy process. For him to say his proposals were ignored is simply false,” Price said.

The humanitarian group UNICEF also condemned the expulsions, saying Thursday that initial estimates show more than two out of three migrants expelled to Haiti are women and children, including newborns.

“Haiti is reeling from the triple tragedy of natural disasters, gang violence and the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Henrietta Fore, UNICEF’s executive director, who said those sent back without adequate protection “find themselves even more vulnerable to violence, poverty and displacement — factors that drove them to migrate in the first place.”

And Civil Rights leader Rev. Al Sharpton, who toured the camp on Thursday, said he’d witnessed “a real catastrophic and human disgrace” and vowed to “stand with our people and make sure asylum is treated in one way and one manner.”

Simone Biles defends her love for Imo’s Pizza on Jimmy Kimmel Live

ST. LOUIS – While gymnast Simone Biles was on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday night promoting her Athleta Presents Gold Over America Tour she talked about how much she loves Imo’s Pizza.

“Provel is the best,” Biles said.

“Provel is the world’s most disgusting cheese,” Kimmel said.

Now, Kimmel’s wife is from St. Louis and Biles’ boyfriend Texans DB Jonathan Owens is also from St. Louis, but Biles and Kimmel have opposing opinions of the Gateway City’s staple.

Biles eats pizza after every competition and after every Gold Over America show.

“That’s usually the only thing open, but good thing it’s my favorite food,” she said.

When the Gymnastics Olympic Trials were held in St. Louis in June, Biles made sure to get some Imo’s Pizza.

“These people are very nice people, but like provel is like to provolone what Velveeta is to cheddar,” Kimmel said.

“I don’t discriminate against cheese,” Biles said.

She said it is a perfect 10.

WATCH: Processional for fallen Independence Officer Blaize Madrid-Evans

INDEPENDENCE, Mo. — A fallen Independence police officer will be laid to rest on Friday, with family, friends and the law enforcement community coming together to remember Officer Blaize Madrid-Evans, who was killed in the line of duty on Sept. 15.

Visitation was Thursday night, with the funeral scheduled at Community of Christ auditorium on Friday afternoon, and a procession leading Madrid-Evans to his final resting place at Mt. Washington Cemetery.

If you wish to pay your respect to the officer, you can line the streets with signs and flags to greet the funeral procession as they take Madrid-Evans to the cemetery.

Here’s the route they’re taking on Friday:

  • The procession will leave the Community of Christ Auditorium and head east on West Walnut Street.
  • From East Walnut Street, the route will turn north on South Memorial Drive .
  • Then, the procession will drive west on East Truman Road.
  • From East Truman Road, the route goes north on South Arlington Street into East Winner Road.
  • Then, the procession will drive west on US 24 Hwy to South Brookside Avenue and then south, where the procession ends at the Mt. Washington Cemetery just south of the intersection.

Family, friends, and officers from all over came to Independence to offer their condolences to the family of Madrid-Evans on Thursday.

The visitation at the Community of Christ Church last night lasted several hours as many wanted to pay their respects. The 22-year-old had just graduated the police academy and was excited to serve and protect.

He had 18 shifts under his belt and was still in training when he lost his life in the line of duty. While checking a house last Wednesday after a report of a wanted man in the area, that suspect opened fire and killed Madrid-Evans.

His training officer returned fire and killed the suspect. This death rocked the Independence Police Department. They hadn’t lost an officer in the line of duty to gunfire since 2001.

The fact he died so young, and with so much potential, is why many are struggling with this loss.

“It’s a bad time for all of us at the department. I’m feeling mixed emotions. A really sad thing that came out of this for someone that’s 22 to lose their life with our department,” Officer Jack Taylor said.

The funeral starts at 11 a.m. Afterwards, Madrid-Evans’ casket will be placed in an ambulance and taken from the church past the Independence police station, and then on to the cemetery.

The public is invited to stand along the funeral procession route streets and hold signs or flags to show support for the young officer, his loved ones, and the law enforcement community.

Teddy Bridgewater’s leadership approach has made positive impact on Broncos: “He knows what it takes”

Broncos up-down drill: Highs and lows for Denver against the Jaguars

Moments after losing a red zone fumble and dropping a touchdown pass, respectively, second-year Broncos Albert Okwuegbunam and KJ Hamler received sideline pep talks from quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Shortly after he fell to the turf with an aggravated ankle injury, outside linebacker Bradley Chubb looked up and saw Bridgewater, who left the bench, offering support.D

During or after every quarterback meeting, any player who wants to go over any aspect of the game plan finds a willing partner in Bridgewater.

“He knows what it takes; he’s seen what it takes,” running back Melvin Gordon said.

And what this Broncos offense, in a five-year slump and young throughout the depth chart, has needed is Bridgewater’s steady play/work ethic and consistent voice.

Businesses worldwide participate in “Ted Talks.” The Broncos, 2-0 entering Sunday’s home opener against the New York Jets, have “Teddy Talks.”

Bridgewater’s tone is low-octave and high-impact. The message: It is all about the team and winning.

“Dialogue and little conversations are my ways of trying to lead,” he said.

That approach has resonated.

“Just a fun-loving, very cool, calm, collected guy and he just wants to win games,” receiver Tim Patrick said.

2,000-mile kayak trip of Missouri River ends soon for environmental activist

An organizer for the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal Campaign has paddled his kayak for more than 60 days now in order to draw attention to climate change.

Graham Jordison started his 2,341 mile paddle on July 19 on the Missouri River in Three Forks, Montana. His paddle will end in St. Louis in the next few days. As of 1:00 p.m. Thursday, Jordison was in Saline County, Missouri. He approximately paddles 35 miles daily.

Jordison’s Facebook post also gave links to a GoFundMe page and a GPS findmespot.

Jordison wrote on the GoFundMe page, “I’m taking this life changing adventure in partnership with the Sierra Club to raise awareness about the work we do to protect the environment.”

He also said he wants his journey to benefit his hometown, Lincoln, Nebraska, and has set a goal to “raise at least one dollar for every mile that [he] paddles.” He said the money will go to Blue Stem Sierra Club Group and Indian Center Inc.

Jordison chose to kayak the Missouri River because 12 coal power plants are located along it. Throughout his journey, he has been documenting the coal plants and educating the community on environmental issues.

Six other kayakers are making the trip with Jordison.

Passenger on JetBlue flight tried to storm cockpit, choke flight attendant with necktie, FBI says

Passenger on JetBlue flight tried to storm cockpit, choke flight attendant with necktie, FBI says

BOSTON (WPRI/NEXSTAR) — A passenger on a JetBlue flight is facing federal charges after allegedly choking a flight attendant and trying to enter the cockpit on a recent flight, according to an FBI affidavit.

The flight, which originated in Boston, was about an hour out from landing in Puerto Rico when the attack occurred Wednesday.

Investigators say the passenger, identified as Khalil El Dahr in an FBI affidavit obtained by The Daily Beast, became agitated when he was unable to make a call on his cell phone. A short while afterward, he ran toward the front of the plane yelling that he wanted to be shot, according to information obtained by an FBI investigator.

A flight attendant was able to intervene before El Dahr reached the cockpit door, per the affidavit. A member of the flight crew then opened the door to the flight deck, at which point El Dahr began again demanding to be shot.

The man also began choking the flight attendant attempting to keep him away from the cockpit by grabbing and pulling on the crew member’s tie.

Several crew members were eventually able to restrain the man using seat belt extenders and, as one witness noted, the very tie that belonged to the flight attendant, which was fastened around the man’s ankles.

The passenger now faces charges of interfering with a flight crew, according to the affidavit.

A representative for the San Juan field office of the FBI confirmed the incident but could not disclose additional details.

The Federal Aviation Administration said this week that the number of incidents involving unruly passengers was still “too high” despite dropping sharply amid the FAA’s announcement of a “zero-tolerance” policy, first enacted in January.

“Our work is having an impact and the trend is moving in the right direction. But we need the progress to continue. This remains a serious safety threat, and one incident is one too many,” FAA Administrator Steve Dickson said in a news release issued Thursday.

The FAA further said that reports of unruly passengers were still coming in at twice the rate they were reported at the end of 2020. Since January 2021, the agency has received reports of at least 4,385 such incidents, the majority of which involve passengers refusing to comply with mask mandates.

The FAA has also proposed over $1,100,000 in civil penalties (collectively) against some of those disruptive passengers since enacting its zero-tolerance policy.
