Parents Apparently Overdose At Home, Baby Daughter Starves To Death Days Later

After two young parents died of apparent drug overdoses in their Pennsylvania home, their baby died of starvation in her bassinet some four days later, according to authorities.


Summer Chambers, five months old, and her parents Jason Chambers, 27, and Chelsea Cardaro, 19, were all found dead on Thursday in the family’s home in the Kernville section of Johnstown, a town about 60 miles east of Pittsburgh, the Tribune-Democrat reported.

Investigators who found drugs on the scene believe the parents died of heroin overdoses within minutes of each other, though autopsy results are still pending, Cambria County District Attorney Kelly Callihan said Friday.


A friend of the couple found their bodies about a week after their deaths. Summer, discovered in a second-floor bedroom, had also died by then. Autopsy results confirmed the baby had died of starvation and dehydration.


“It was hard going in there and being the one to see them like that,” the friend, James Grant, told local station WAJC-TV. “They cared for their daughter. For two flawed people, they did their best to hold it together.”



Chambers had overdosed before in November, but medical personnel revived him, according to Callihan. Authorities allowed the baby to stay in the home. 


A representative from Children and Youth Services met with the parents “with the child present at the residence,” said Callihan. “They checked out the house, and it was appropriate to a child living there. There was plenty of food and the child seemed well taken care of,” she added.


Since both parents died at approximately the same time, no one was left to alert authorities or care for the baby, according to Johnstown Police Captain Chad Miller. “Being from out of town, not having anybody in town, it was too long for anybody to notice that they were missing,” he said. 


Callihan said the tragedy “illustrates the ongoing issues that we’re having with overdoses” in the area. 


“If you are addicted, if you’re using heroin and you have children, you’re endangering their lives,” Callihan said. “You need to get help for your children.”


Heroin deaths in the U.S. are skyrocketing. Last year, for the first time in more than 15 years, heroin caused more deaths than gun homicides, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Woman Killed When Giant Tree Topples On California Wedding Party




Officials have launched an investigation after a woman was killed Saturday and a 4-year-old girl and four other guests were injured when a giant Eucalyptus tree suddenly toppled on wedding guests in a Southern California park.


Some members of the wedding party were snapping photos of the 100-foot tree in Penn Park in Whittier, about 20 miles east of Los Angeles, when it crashed on top of them.


More than 100 police officers and firefighters responded to the tragedy Saturday afternoon, and attempted to revive the woman struck by the tree. Several people were trapped beneath the limbs of the tree until rescue workers cut them free with chainsaws.

“The officers responding initially went to work right away, did the best they could to start getting larger limbs and people out from under the tree, and then our partners at Los Angeles County Fire arrived and we were able to start getting victims out and getting victims triaged,” a police official said at a press conference. 


The victim has not been identified, nor has the girl, who was critically injured with head trauma when the tree toppled, according to Whittier police. The other injuries were minor. A witness said the dead woman may have been related to the bride. The bride was “screaming about her mom ― they couldn’t wake her up,” Rene Zaldivar, who was at the park for another celebration, told NBC 4.

Penn Park will remain closed indefinitely as an arborist examines the site as well as other trees in the area. Officials said there was no indication earlier that the tree was at risk of falling. There was early speculation that the California drought had weakened the roots that then tore from the earth because the ground was softened by recent heavy rain, reported ABC 7.


The park is popular for weddings in part because of the picturesque trees.


“We’re trying to make sure that we give all the dignity and respect of that family,” Los Angeles County Fire Department Deputy Chief John Tripp said at the news conference. “They were here for a joyous occasion and then unfortunately, a very large tree interrupted that, and they, right now, are going through a lot of issues that we’re trying to make sure to support.”


Tripp said had there been more people directly under the tree, most of the injuries would not have been minor. “Fortunately, there weren’t more people that were injured by the collapse,” he said. “It could have been a lot worse.”

Protests Flare Against Donald Trump's Election




NEW YORK — Thousands of protesters dissatisfied by Donald Trump’s stunning victory took to city streets on Wednesday, from New York to Seattle.


In Manhattan, thousands converged on Union Square in a light rain and prepared to march uptown to the president-elect’s home at Trump Tower. Protesters hoisted signs like “Bad Hombre” and “Not My President,” and anti-Trump chants echoed through the crowd. Police made several arrests.

Jackie Smith, 53, of Staten Island, said she was blindsided by the election outcome. 


“There’s a lot of blame to go around,  but I blame myself,” said Smith. “Instead of laughing at Trump, I should have been out protesting.”


Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, who attended the rally, told The Huffington Post that protesters must not falter in their opposition to Trump. 


“We had all those big protests before the Iraq War and once the war started, everyone stopped protesting,” Moore said. “This time, we keep it up and we don’t stop till he’s out of there.”

Trump’s derogatory comments and allegations that he has sexually assaulted women loomed large for Emily Rems, managing editor of Bust magazine. She carried a sign that read “Don’t Grab My Pussy,” referencing vulgar comments Trump made in a 2005 video published by The Washington Post in October. 


“We’re pissed as hell that Donald Trump won this election,” Rems said. “Women should have equal rights in this society, and we don’t want Roe v Wade overturned.” 


Trump said in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in March that “there has to be some form of punishment” for women who have abortions.

The prospect of Trump following through on promised anti-immigration policies worried Carmen Candelario, 23, who said she moved to the U.S. legally from the Dominican Republic. 


“I already knew I was fighting against a lot of hate just because of my background and skin color,” Candelario said. “The dream to move forward as a community is now gone.”



Daisy Skelton, 22, of Manhattan, tried to grapple with Trump’s victory. 


“This election is unacceptable,” said Skelton. “I’ve been crying, and my friend said to me, ‘Optimism is the only way.’”


Socialist Alternative, NYC, the group that organized the anti-Trump march, heaped criticism on the Democratic Party.


“The Democratic Party has proven they are incapable of stopping Trump,” Socialist Alternative, NYC, said in a Facebook message announcing the protest. “The Democratic Party has failed. This is the result of the Democratic Party leadership backing Hillary Clinton instead of Bernie Sanders. It is time to build a new party of the 99%.”

Protests and prayer vigils were held at other locations around New York City.

In Austin, Texas, students from the University of Texas demonstrated on campus, then marched downtown. About 400 people blocked traffic on city bridges, but remained peaceful, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

Similar protests erupted in Los Angeles, Portland, Oregon, and Washington, D.C., shortly after Hillary Clinton conceded defeat early Wednesday. 


In California, Berkeley and Oakland authorities reported some disruption as well. About 250 people took to the streets and caused “vandalism on multiple businesses,” according to Oakland police. Small fires were set in city streets as marchers reached downtown Oakland.

In Seattle, dozens of students at West Seattle High walked out of class, and hundreds of residents took to the streets in protest of the election results, the Seattle Times reported. 


Kshama Sawant, a socialist Seattle City council member, called on protesters to “

” Trump’s inauguration ceremony, KIRO 7 reported.

And in Chicago, protesters gathered outside Trump Tower before taking to the streets, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The next four years are going to be hard for all of us, but this is an unprecedented chance for all of us to fight as one,” Jonathan Lovitz, a senior vice president of the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, told NBC News. “Think of the possibilities when all minorities stand together.”

'Suspicious Package' Explodes In New Jersey As Bomb Squad Robot Tries To Disarm It

A bag containing as many as five pipe bombs detonated overnight in Elizabeth, New Jersey as a bomb squad robot 

, the FBI stated.


No injuries were reported.


The FBI arrived on the scene late Sunday night after receiving reports of a suspicious package that was found by the Elizabeth, New Jersey train station. Around 9:30 p.m., two men took a package from a wastebasket, believing it to be “of some value to them,” Elizabeth Mayor Chris Bollwage said.


As they walked around the corner, the men noticed the package contained wires and a pipe. They immediately dropped it and called Elizabeth police.

The discovery came just one day after a small bomb detonated alongside a 5K charity race in nearby Seaside Park, and an explosion rocked the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan on Saturday night. More than two dozen people were injured in the second blast. A second device that did not explode was also found in the area. 


As a result of the investigation in Elizabeth, train service in the area was interrupted. All New Jersey Transit and Amtrak trains were suspended going through the Elizabeth, New Jersey station.

Customers are safe & trains have been brought into stations to allow passengers to disembark and seek alt transportation if they desire.

— Amtrak Northeast (@AmtrakNEC)



At the time of this writing, law enforcement officials are still

at the site of the explosion.


The incident in Elizabeth, New Jersey was the fifth since Friday. Previous attacks occurred in New York City, Seaside Park, New Jersey, Philadelphia and St. Cloud, Minnesota.

Marion Christopher Barry, Son Of Former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry, Dead At 36


Marion Christopher Barry, the son of the dynamic former Washington D.C. Mayor Marion Barry, has died of a drug overdose, NBC Washington reports. He was 36. 


NBC4’s Tom Sherwood, who has covered the Barry family extensively, confirmed the younger Barry’s death after speaking with Cora Masters Barry, the ex-mayor’s widow, on Sunday. 



#Breaking. NBC4. Cora Masters Barry, widow of Marion Barry, confirms Christopher Marion Barry, 36, son of the late DC mayor, has died.

— Tom Sherwood (@tomsherwood)



In 2015, Barry tried his hand at politics and ran for his father’s city council seat after the former mayor’s death, but he was unsuccessful, finishing in sixth place. Barry, who had commonly gone by “Christopher,” put his name on the ballot as Marion C. Barry. 


That same year, Barry narrowly avoided jail time over a disruption at a Washington bank where he allegedly threatened a teller he thought had a grudge against his family and smashed a security camera with a trash can.


Since the early 2000s, Barry had trouble with “minor but serious skirmishes,” including driving and drug offenses, Sherwood said in an interview Sunday.


“Ever since his mother died in 2007, he lost one of the anchors of his life,” Sherwood said. Effi Barry died of leukemia that year.



Barry’s father, who died in 2014, was a powerful and controversial figure in D.C. politics, dubbed “mayor for life” for his long grip on that office.


After holding office for 12 years, the elder Barry was famously arrested in an FBI sting operation in 1990 for using crack cocaine  ― only to bounce back four years later to secure his fourth term as mayor. 


CORRECTION: This story has been updated to reflect that Marion Barry was dubbed “mayor for life” prior to his fourth term in office.

Ex-Stanford Swimmer Found Guilty Of Sexually Assaulting Unconscious Woman On Campus




Stanford University student Brock Allen Turner was accused last year of sexually assaulting an unconscious and intoxicated woman outside an on-campus fraternity party. Turner, then 19, was a member of the college swim team and had aspirations for the 2016 Olympic Games.


This week, he was found guilty of sexual assault. 


According to the San Jose Mercury-News, a jury of eight men and four women convicted Turner on Wednesday of three felony charges: assault with intent to commit rape of an intoxicated woman, sexually penetrating an intoxicated person with a foreign object and sexually penetrating an unconscious person with a foreign object.


“[Turner] may not look like a rapist,” prosecutor Alaleh Kianerci told the jury during closing arguments, “but he is the face of campus sexual assault.”

— NBC Bay Area (@nbcbayarea)



Turner was arrested on Jan. 18, 2015 after two graduate students who were cycling by a Kappa Alpha party spotted him “thrusting his hips atop an unconscious woman lying on the ground.”


One of the grad students, Peter Jonsson, allegedly yelled at Turner, prompting him to jump off the woman. Jonsson then pursued Turner, who ran from the scene.


Meanwhile, the other grad student, Carl Arndt, rushed to help the victim, a woman identified only as “Jane Doe.” She was reportedly unconscious but breathing.


It's what you do in the dark that puts you into the light,” Kianerci told jurors, according to Palo Alto Online. “Brock Turner made a series of decisions in the darkness ... all in an effort to please himself. It didn't matter to him whether she was willing. What we do know is that he wouldn't have stopped if it wasn't for those two heroes.”


Turner claimed the 22-year-old woman had willingly left the frat party with him. He said she was “awake and conscious throughout their sexual encounter,” which included kissing, penetrating her with a finger and “dry-humping."


The victim, whose blood-alcohol level was three times the legal limit, was reportedly unconscious for at least three hours. She testified that she had no memory of meeting Turner, and that she woke up in the hospital with “pine needles in her disheveled hair, [and] dried blood on her hands and elbows.”

The high-profile case cast a spotlight on the epidemic of campus sexual assault, and triggered a national conversation about the lax sexual violence policies adopted by many colleges in the country, including Stanford.


Following the announcement of the jury’s decision, district attorney Jeff Rosen said he hoped the verdict would "clearly reverberate through colleges and high schools anywhere in our society where there may be any doubt about the distinction between consent and sexual assault.”


No means no. Drunk means no. Passed out means no. And sex without consent means sexual assault,” Rosen said, per the Los Angeles Times. 


Turner, who is free on $150,000 bail, will be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life and faces a maximum prison sentence of 10 years, the Mercury News reported.


His sentencing has been set for June 2.


According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, approximately 1 in 6 women nationwide are victims of sexual assault, with the rate being higher for women in college. However, rapists often escape punishment.


Research funded by the Department of Justice showed that fewer than 37 percent of rapes ever lead to prosecution, and just 3 to 18 percent result in a conviction.

Demonstrators Block Road To Donald Trump Rally In Arizona




Protesters on Saturday blocked the roads leading to a Donald Trump rally in Fountain Hills, Arizona.


Video from NBC's Jacob Rascon showed one driver confronting protesters and screaming at them to get off the road.

Some of the demonstrators had tied themselves to their cars, making it harder for law enforcement to tow the vehicles.

Lewis Monroy told The Huffington Post that he had been stuck in traffic for almost two hours and said he saw two protesters arrested. Both people were chained to cars, and law enforcement cut the cables and arrested them so they could tow the vehicles, he said. Video shows officers carrying a protester away.





An ABC 15 anchor reported

 had been arrested in connection with the protests. Deputy Joaquin Enriquez, a spokesman for the Maricopa County sheriff's office, told ABC 15 the arrests were for blocking the road, not protesting.


The roadblock didn't stop some determined people from getting out of their cars and walking to Trump's rally. 


Tomas Robles, executive director of Living United for Change in Arizona, a workers' rights organization, told HuffPost that law enforcement was cooperative and treated protesters fairly. He said some Trump supporters "did try to get get aggressive," but they were not violent. 


"It was a peaceful protest, we got our point across, and we showed the nation and our state that just because Arizona at a time has been seen as anti-immigrant and somewhat racist, this is not that state anymore," he said. "We're not going to allow people like Trump to spew that rhetoric."

Reports of arrests and violence at Trump rallies have become commonplace. At least 52 people were arrested or cited in connection with Trump events from Feb. 29 to March 14, according to a HuffPost survey of police departments. News reports and police reports for the same period show there were at least 20 incidents of physical violence at Trump events.
