But according to Newser, 'purchased' isn't quite the correct term to describe the transaction. That's because the cashier's check for $139,203.05 bounced. The car was reported stolen. Kelley was arrested Wednesday, and he told authorities that the check hadn't actually come from a bank, but was simply printed off of his home computer.
A huge fan of US President Donald Trump has done her patriotic part in proving that justice is a dish best served cold. Newser reports the identity of a bomb-throwing protester in Portland, Oregon, remained obscure until someone claimed to know him. It was none other than Karla Fox, the 'Trump-loving grandma' of 18-year-old Gabriel 'Rico' Agard-Berryhill. Fox says she ID'd her grandson by the olive-colored vest she bought him with the word 'ICONS' on it. I love him to death.

A Monroe County Sheriff’s Office spokesman says Interian and Gonzalez were kept isolated.
Florida couple James and Kimberly Snead are living personifications of the adage 'no good deed goes unpunished.' The Sneads were the last foster parents of Nikolas Cruz. Cruz carried out a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in 2018. As part of a legal agreement to settle numerous civil lawsuits, the Sneads were required to write a letter of apology to the victims and their families. According to Newser, they said they should have believed what they were told.
