A rural village in Escourt‚ KwaZulu-Natal‚ is abuzz with allegations of black magic‚ muti and cannibalism after four men‚ one of whom is a traditional healer‚ stand accused of murdering a woman and eating parts of her body.
The group made a brief appearance in the Estcourt Magistrate’s Court on Monday facing charges of murder and conspiracy to commit murder.
Their arrests followed the confession of a man who walked into the Estcourt police station at the weekend‚ declaring to officers that he was tired of eating human flesh.
When officers questioned his outlandish statement‚ the man produced part of a human leg and a human hand.
STEUBENVILLE — Jefferson County Common Pleas Judge Joseph Bruzzese is out of surgery and “doing fine” at UPMC in Pittsburgh, according to City Manager Jim Mavromatis.
Bruzzese was shot in an ambush-style attack outside the Jefferson County Courthouse on his way into his office Monday morning.
County officials said the courthouse, which was closed today as the investigation progresses, will remain closed Tuesday.
Mavromatis said the family of the shooter, who was shot and killed by a probation officer who happened upon the exchange of gunfire between the shooter and the judge, has been notified.
Blount County is southeast of here. I think that last picture is outstanding.

At least 63 individuals were shot and eight were killed over the weekend in gun-controlled Chicago.
According to the Chicago Tribune, over half the shootings occurred within “13 hours from Saturday to early Sunday.” This was followed by the shooting of 16 people during the day on Sunday, and three of the victims were shot on the same street—South Austin.
On the back porch saying Grace:
“Lord, we ask that you bless this food, our family and our friends and… why, there’s that damned chicken right there!… thank you for letting us witness your power today. Gotta run, in your name we pray, amen.”
Motherfucker was sneaking up from the treeline to the coop, so I hotfooted it out there to see if I couldn’t catch it. She snuck around the far side near the woodpile and I was about 10 yards behind it, dead off on her heels but hanging back just a bit.
I don’t know what she had been up to but whatever it was wore her little white ass out – she didn’t even really try to run or even put up a good fight. She just wandered into the open reloading shed, I followed her in and shut the door and then just walked up to her and picked her up.
I don’t know where ol’ Runaround Sue had been or what she’d done but as soon as I popped her ass back in the coop, she ran over to the other birds and started clucking. I can just about imagine what she was saying: “Man, I know you ain’t gonna believe this but I have seen me some shit today…”
Electric car owners have been warned that if they attempt to boil a kettle while charging their car it will blow the fuse.
The National Grid expressed concerns that an average size 3.5kW battery charger would take 19 hours to fully charge a car battery, even when it is 25 per cent full.
A Houston man has been charged with trying to plant explosives at the statue of Confederate officer Richard Dowling in Hermann Park, federal officials said Monday.
Andrew Schneck, 25, who was released from probation early last year after being convicted in 2015 of storing explosives, was charged in a criminal complaint filed in federal court, Acting U.S. Attorney Abe Martinez said in a statement Monday.
Schneck was arrested Saturday night after a Houston park ranger spotted him kneeling in bushes in front of the Dowling monument in the park, Martinez said.
When confronted Saturday night in the park, he tried to drink some of the liquid explosives but spit it out, officials said.
Oregon has long been predicted to be a scene of major eclipse traffic jams, and even by Sunday, that was proving to be true: The Oregon National Guard was called in to Madras, a small agricultural city in the sunny part of the state, east of the Cascades.
Traffic was at a standstill for hours Sunday afternoon, gridlocked as well more than 100,000 people flocked to this small, pleasant town of 7,000.
Madras, pronounced like glad or sad — not like the plaid fabric or the megalopolis in India — sits on the centerline of the eclipse’s path of totality.
The bad part about it is that the town has probably been promoting itself for the eclipse for a year or more trying to draw in tourist cash. What would be funny now is if the State billed the town for expenses due to the NG being called out.
Cockerels dancing and chasing the girls around the yard are a sure sign that the warmer months are here, the mating games are about to start and baby chicks are on the horizon.
Although some of the antics that go on may seem amusing to us, mating is a very serious occupation for your chickens.
In the wild, only the strong would survive so many of the behaviors are driven by this instinct.
So, what exactly is involved in getting that egg fertilized? It’s more complicated and devious that you might think – sit back and delve into ‘romancing the hen’.
Let’s not jump to any conclusions, but Glenn Miller aka Malik Mohammad Ali’s past time in the Marines didn’t have much to do with shooting two police officers. His new identity change might have. And his racist tantrums.
But the media keeps emphasizing that he was a Marine.
Why is the “Marine” part so newsworthy?
I just saw my full solar eclipse and I’ll admit, it was very cool.
The clouds gave us a break and we were able to see the total coverage part. It was pretty strange leading up to it, it was getting dimmer and dimmer like the sun was setting except the shadows weren’t in the right places. The best way I can describe it, and you westerners will understand, is it was like smoke from your local grass or forest fire drifting overhead, only without the redness.
About 2 minutes before totality, the wind stopped, the birds and bugs quit and the temps dropped 8 degrees. The only noise I could hear was Jeffery the bull bawling once over the rise. The darkness was comparable to what you’d see during a full moon – you could even see the brighter stars in the sky.
It lasted just a couple of minutes and then it got light again. When I say it got light again, I mean it got light. It went from being dark to daylight again in just a couple seconds.
So yeah, it was worth watching and I’m glad we caught it.
And here’s a video I shot for you during it:
The coup against President Trump has been developing for months and can be seen on the nightly news. Yet few talk about what it really means for the country and what can be done to avert this fate. Fortunately, we have the bulwark of the Constitution and protracted process inherent in the rule of law. But the urgency and clarity of mind to prevail and prevent the ouster of the President can certainly be heightened by grasping the goals and temperament of the power brokers who seek his destruction and the subsequent reordering of the country.
Suffice it to say that removal of Trump without sufficient cause would likely have dramatic and lasting repercussions. At a minimum, the power brokers involved in a successful coup would feel entitled to a big role in reordering the nation. At the other end of the spectrum, a more dramatic maximum type response could come in the form of a civil uprising of armed constituencies that voted for Trump, who might well feel there is no other recourse from the fundamental betrayal of the ballot box and disenfranchisement by their government.
A Florida real estate agent and clients discovered human remains on a property in a rural town 30 miles west of Orlando, it was reported on Sunday.
Local deputies from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office were called to the scene, where they promptly launched an investigation, according to WFTV-TV.
The remains were found Saturday evening at 16420 Douglas Road in Groveland, a property that is up for sale.
Randall and Vicki Weaver and their children wanted nothing more than to be left to live an isolated life in peace in their cabin enclave on a northern Idaho mountaintop called Ruby Ridge. Untrusting of the federal government and of the belief society had taken an insurmountable turn for the worse, the Weavers — as many residents in the remote and breathtaking area — taught their children to be self-sufficient and defend themselves with firearms from unwanted intrusions onto the family’s property.
But the Weaver’s seemingly idyllic life came to an appallingly violent end over several hours from August 21 to 22, 1992, in a horrendously botched federal raid that would also profoundly alter perceptions about the U.S. government in the minds of even ordinary Americans.
