The family said they knew something was wrong when she wasn’t in touch for so long, DeSpain said, saying that the sisters rarely went a day without talking on the phone.Nolan, originally from Waunakee, had recently bought an apartment and moved to Madison from Whitewater, where she went to school.

Looking for that second vehicle and looks or speed isn’t top priority, then I would suggest you head out to Pebble Beach, Calif. in August to bid on this steam-powered baby that still runs. 

You might want to run fast I can see Jay Leno drooling as this is a must have for him.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — A steam-powered car, billed as the oldest car in the world that still runs, will be sold in a Pebble Beach, Calif., auction in August.The car was built in France in 1884, about a year before Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz of Germany built their first experimental gasoline-powered cars. (The two were working independently of one another.) Henry Ford, the man many Americans mistakenly believe invented the automobile, built his first car 12 years after this one.

More Rain Forecast for Texas, Oklahoma After Days of Flooding

Friday, June 29, 2007 


FORT WORTH, Texas —  Flood-weary residents of Texas and Oklahoma had no reprieve Friday as more rain fell in a region where two weeks of storms have swollen rivers and lakes beyond their limits. Thousands of people have been forced from their homes, though some residents were holding out, saying conditions are no worse than floods they’ve weathered before.A state of emergency was in place for all of Oklahoma on Friday, and flood watches and warnings were posted for river communities. A flood watch was in effect for 28 counties in Texas, where the storms have been blamed for at least 11 deaths.The chance of more rain Friday in the affected areas of Texas was more than 60 percent, said Jesse Moore, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Fort Worth.“The storms are very efficient rain producers, and if you happen to be under one of them you can pick up 1 1/2 or 2 inches an hour,” Moore said. “Right now with the ground being saturated, it’s all run-off and that causes the flash flooding we’ve been seeing.

Friday, June 29, 2007
Fox News
ATLANTA — An anonymous blogger claimed Friday to be the person who posted a mysterious addition on the Wikipedia.org site that announced the death of Nancy Benoit to the world at least 13 hours before investigators in Georgia found her body, along with the bodies of her husband and son in what is believed to be a murder-suicide.

The confession said the changes to Chris Benoit’s page — first reported Thursday by FOXNews.com — was coincidental, and were based on rumors and speculation.

The authenticity of the posting could not immediately be confirmed.

Man With Headache Finds Bullet in Head

Thursday, June 28, 2007
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla Fox News

Honey my head is killing me, either you hit me with your elbow or I think I’m having an aneurisum.

I wonder if this is what Michael Moylan 45, said to his wife April when he woke up at 4:30a.m. with a terrible headache?

She drives him to the hospital

Doctors discover a bullet in his head lodged behind his right ear

Authorities obtained a search warrant for the couple’s home which led to the arrest of Moylan’s wife April, 39, who is being charged with attempted murder.

Evidence indicated Moylan had been shot at close range by someone (hmm, and that would be?)

His wife eventually tells authorities she “accidently” shot her husband. (accidently, close range behind right ear sure sounds like an accident to me…. lol)

How many people can be sleeping, get shot in the head or anywhere and not know it.  This blows (no pun intended) me away. 

Obviously there is more to this than meets the eye which I’m sure will be uncovered as they investigate further.

Moylan did not undergo surgery, but was transferred to a trauma facility and his current condition is not known.

Chris Benoit Update: Authorities search and seized computers and medical records at office of Benoit’s physician

Thursday, June 28, 2007

State and federal drug agents staged a late night raid Wednesday night at the offices of Chris Benoit’s personal physician, Dr. Phil Astin, and took computers and medical records from Astin’s office.  Astin was at his office at the time of the raid and said he had prescribed testosterone for Benoit.

The raid came as a result of the investigation into the drugs found at Benoit’s home

Police found anabolic steroids in Benoit’s home, leading some officials to wonder whether the drugs played a role in the slayings. Some experts believe steroids cause paranoia, depression and violent outbursts known as “roid rage.”

Thursday, June 28, 2007
  

The WWE was quick to dismiss the idea of this crime being steroid related saying the findings indicated “deliberation, not rage” and Benoit last tested on April 10 tested negative.

No motive has yet been determined just speculation.

Jerry McDevitt, an attorney for the league, said the couple had argued in the days before the slayings over whether he should stay home more to help take care of their mentally retarded son.

McDevitt said the wrestling organization learned from the couple’s friends and relatives that the Benoits were struggling with where to send the boy to school since he had recently finished kindergarten.

He also said Benoit’s wife didn’t want him to quit wrestling, but she “wanted him to be at home more to care for the kid. She’d say she can’t take care of him by herself when he was on the road.”

Benoit’s son suffered from a rare medical condition called Fragile X Syndrome, an inherited form of mental retardation often accompanied by autism.

Patrick Bryan Knight – Dead man laughing execution no joke

Killer ‘not much of a comedian’ before execution

HUNTSVILLE, Texas
CNN.com POSTED: 9:17 a.m. EDT, June 27, 2007 Patrick Knight’s executions was carried out as planned June 26, 2007.  He had been charged and convicted of murder and sentenced to death for the 1993 killings of his neighbors Mary Ann Werner.During his time on death row he began collecting jokes, soliciting jokes in the mail and on a Web site, sometimes receiving as many as 20 a day saying he was going to use the time for his last words to be used telling a joke. He became known as “The Dead Man Laughing.” 
But when the moment came, Knight thanked God for his friends and asked for help for innocent men on death row. He named several he said were innocent. His voice shaking and nearly in tears, he said, “Not all of us are innocent, but those are.”
After expressing love to some friends, he said, “I said I was going to tell a joke. Death has set me free. That’s the biggest joke. I deserve this.”“And the other joke is that I am not Patrick Bryan Knight and y’all can’t stop this execution now. Go ahead, I’m finished.”Prison spokeswoman Michelle Lyons disputed Knight’s mistaken identity claim.“We fingerprint them when they come over,” she said.
