Houston — Woman’s Dead Body Found Covered in Dog Bites

Posted on Friday, February 15th, 2019 at 12:49 am    

At around 8:15 a.m. on Friday, February 8, 2019, a woman was found dead in the backyard of her home in the 12830 block of Susanna Lane, and she appeared to have multiple dog bites all over her body.

According to Houston Police, officers were conducting a welfare check on Elaine Richman, 66, after she had not appeared for her dog training classes in two days. Upon their arrival on Richman’s residence, they found her dead in her backyard with several dog bites on her arms, hands, and face.

Preliminary autopsy determines that a sharp force injury was the cause of death. Investigators found two adult Doberman pinschers in the house, but did not say whether the dogs were responsible for the bites or Richman’s death.

As of right now, Richman’s death is ruled as an accident, but a complete autopsy is requested to fully determine the cause of her death.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of Elaine Richman. Sadly, she is not the only one whose life is taken away by a dog attack. In a study conducted by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), about 4.7 million dog bites occur in the United States every year, and 800,000 of those bites result in medical care. This can be interpreted as 1 in 69 people getting bitten by a dog annually.

These numbers paint a terrible picture, but according to National Canine Research Council, 81% of dog bites cause no injury at all or only minor injuries that do not require medical attention. In other words, there is only a 1 in 112,400 chance of dying from a dog bite or strike, so more often than not, dying from a dog bite is highly unlikely.

That said, dog attacks can be fatal when they happen, and they can be as complicated as they are devastating to the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers who are experts in cases like this. That is why, if you are a victim of a dog bite/attack, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help from these lawyers. They will help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.

Houston — Man, Woman Face Charges for the Death of Their Child

Posted on Thursday, February 14th, 2019 at 10:45 pm    

On Wednesday, February 13, 2019, a man and a woman were charged and taken into custody following the death of their infant child.

The Houston Police Department reports that the infant was found dead in her crib on June 5, 2018 at the family’s home in the 2300 block of Bay Area Boulevard. According to an autopsy provided by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences, she had suffered multiple blunt trauma injuries to her head and various parts of her body. Additionally, an initial investigation showed that there had been at least three incidents resulting in a variety of injuries that were in different states of healing.

The father, 23-year-old Dylan Christian Daugherty, and the mother, 26-year-old Aeriel Louise Spivey, are both charged with murder and injury to a child-serious bodily injury, respectively. They were taken into custody on Wednesday without incident.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the child. Alas, this kind of negligence that results to injury is not that uncommon. In a lot of cases, simple assaults that involve bodily injury to another person are considered as Class A misdemeanors; however, the charge can change drastically if the alleged victim is a child (a person who is 14 years of age or younger), elderly person (a person who is 65 years or older), or a disabled person (a person who is substantially unable to protect themselves from harm or to provide food, shelter, or medical for themselves, or who has autism spectrum disorder, developmental disability, intellectual disability, severe emotional disturbance, or traumatic brain injury). If this is the case, then the allegation becomes a felony.

A charge of injury to a child, elderly person, or disabled person can be identified as either criminal negligence or omission. Criminal negligence is when intentional, knowing, or reckless states of mind are not present in the case. In the meantime, omission results in an offense if the omission causes an injury defined under the statute and the alleged offender has a legal duty to act, a statutory duty to act, or assumed care, custody, or control of a child, elderly, or disabled individual. This is more often than not applicable to parents or guardians, caregivers, or owners, operators, employees of group homes, nursing facilities, and the like.

An injury to a child, elderly person, or disabled person by criminal negligence or omission can be devastating to the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers who specialize in cases like this. That is why, if you are a victim of this kind of offense, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask help from these lawyers. They will help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.

Houston — Man Dies After Incident at 10414 Richmond Avenue

Posted on Monday, February 11th, 2019 at 5:36 am    

At around 4:15 p.m. on Saturday, February 2, 2019, an incident that occurred at 10414 Richmond Avenue resulted to the death of a man.

According to the Houston Police Department Special Investigations Unit Sergeant M. Ynosencio and Detective E. Contreras, HPD patrol officers received a disturbance call at 10414 Richmond Avenue, and upon their arrival at the aforementioned address, they found Gregory Yarber, 55, in the street, yelling that someone was trying to kill him.

Yarber was then transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital, but unfortunately, he was pronounced dead on February 4, 2019.

The Houston Police are still waiting for the autopsy results to determine the cause of death of Gregory Yarber. Investigation is still underway for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of the passing of Gregory Yarber. Alas, he is not the first victim whose life is taken away by murder. According to statistics, there were a total of 17,284 reported murder and non-negligent manslaughter cases in the United States in 2017. This number actually shows a decline in the past 20 years, but if compared to other countries, the murder rate in the U.S. is still quite high. The three states with the most number of murders in the U.S. in 2017 were California, Texas, and Florida with 1,830, 1,412, and 1,057 respectively.

Murder, homicide, and violent crime statistics constantly have an impact on America’s current political debate on gun law. Though many have argued that any casual connection between gun/firearm circulation and homicide rate is simply hypothetical, the number of murders by firearm is nevertheless high. About 73% of murders and non-negligent manslaughter cases were carried using a firearm.

Murder/homicide cases are always dreadful for the victims and their families. Thankfully, there are lawyers who specialize in cases like these. So, if you are a victim of murder/homicide, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to seek for help. Murder defense attorneys are always more than willing to help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.

Fort Worth — Man Dies After Vape Pen Explodes

Posted on Thursday, February 7th, 2019 at 1:27 am    

On January 29, 2019, a Fort Worth man died after his vape pen exploded, thus cutting a major artery in his neck.

According to reports, William Eric Brown, 24, was sitting in his car in front of the Smoke & Vape DZ store at the 4500 block of Golden Triangle when his pen exploded. He was then taken to John Peter Smith Hospital where he died because of the “penetrating trauma from the exploding vaporizer pen,” which referred to the shrapnel from the blast that severed his left carotid artery.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of William Eric Brown. Alas, it has slowly come to the attention of everyone that e-cigarettes like the one that Brown used can actually explode. According to the U.S. Fire Administration in 2017, there were 133 acute injuries from e-cigarettes and other similar devices that happened between 2009 and 2016. Most of the fires and explosions occurred while the e-cigarette was in a pocket or was being used. At the time of the report, none of the injuries resulted in death — that is, until in May 2018 when a Florida man was killed when his e-cigarette exploded.

Because of these reported accidents involving e-cigarettes and similar devices, it has been noted that these devices present a unique hazard due to their shape and the presence of a lithium-ion battery in a device that, when used, is so close to the face of the user. The Fire Administration said that the shape of e-cigarettes, which is cylindrical, makes them more likely to act as though they are “flaming rockets” if a battery fails. That is why, while the failure rate of the lithium-ion batteries is very minute, the consequences of a failure has the possibility to be severe and, at times, deadly.

Accidents like the one that Brown experienced are incredibly complicated for the victims and for their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers who are experienced in cases like this. That is why, if you are a victim of this kind of accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask help from these lawyers. They will help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.

Dallas — Hit-And-Run Accident Kills Child

Posted on Wednesday, February 6th, 2019 at 1:32 am    

On Saturday, February 2, 2019, a young boy was killed after a hit-and-run accident that occurred in the Love Field area of Dallas.

According to Dallas Police, at approximately 3:30 p.m., a black pickup was driving through a parking lot in the 2900 block of West Northwest Highway in front of Chicken-N-Rice when it struck the boy. The driver did not stop to render aid to the child and simply continued to travel toward Interstate 35. Detectives believe that the registered owner of the car, 24-year-old Ramon Garcia-Ruiz, was driving the vehicle at the time of the accident.

The boy did not survive this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of the passing of the young child. Alas, he is not the first victim whose life is taken away by a car accident. Car accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In a statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident. This can be translated to roughly about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

A particular kind of vehicular accident that is quite common and deadly is a hit-and-run. According to a study done by roadside-assistance giant AAA, there were 2,049 hit-and-run deaths that occurred in 2016. This number is the highest annual total on record, and in the decade leading up to that number, 682,000 hit-and-run crashes happened each year.

Texas has been reported as the 8th worst state for hit-and-run fatalities. This is a fact that is appalling, and something must be done to change that.

Car accidents, especially hit-and-run accidents, are quite difficult to the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/hit-and-run accidents, so if you are a victim of this kind of accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help from these lawyers. They will help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.

Bartlett — Woman Dead After Fatal Shooting in Burnet County

Posted on Wednesday, February 6th, 2019 at 1:27 am    

At approximately 4 p.m. on Friday, February 1, 2019, a fatal shooting accident that occurred in Burnet County left one person dead.

According to the Burnet County Sheriff’s Office, officers were dispatched to 624 West Jackson Street where they discovered a deceased person with a gunshot wound. The victim was identified as 22-year-old Stormie Devon Callison.

The officers also managed to find the suspect’s vehicle more than 6 hours after the shooting. At around 5:21 a.m. on February 2, 2019, the suspect, identified as 32-year-old Archie Samuel Rogers Jr., was arrested. He is charged with 1st degree murder, and he is held at the Williamson County Jail.

It is unfortunate to hear of the passing of Stormie Devon Callison. Sadly, she is not the first victim whose life is taken away by a shooting accident. With about 40% of Americans claiming that they own a gun or that they live in a household with one, being shot by a gun or any other form of firearm is alarmingly common in the U.S. In fact, statistics show that gun violence is considered a leading cause of death in America, with about 124,760 people shot every year (in murders, assaults, suicides/suicide attempts, unintentional shootings, or by police intervention), and from that number, about 35,141 die from gun violence and about 89,620 people survive from it.

Moreover, the chance of dying from gun violence is reported to be about 50% more than the risk of dying while riding inside a vehicle, and it is also 10 times as high as dying from any force of nature, such as earthquakes, hurricanes, and the like. This can be interpreted as Americans more likely to die from gun violence than the combined risks of drowning, fire and smoke, stabbing, choking on food, airplane crashes, animal attacks, and natural disasters. Indeed, this is quite a terrifying picture.

Gun-related accidents are undeniably appalling for the victim and their respective families. So, if you are a victim of shooting/gun violence, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help. The police will always be there for you, but more than that, lawyers, especially those who specialize in gun-related accidents, are always willing to help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.

Royse City — 2 Teenagers Dead After Shooting in Woodland Creek

Posted on Tuesday, February 5th, 2019 at 1:30 am    

On Sunday, February 3, 2019, a double homicide of two teenagers occurred in the Woodland Creek subdivision in Royse City, Texas.

According to initial investigations, the shooting occurred on the 3100 block of Overstreet Lane in the Woodland Creek subdivision at approximately 3:05 a.m.

Timothy Reed, a witness, claimed that he and his wife heard gunshots at 3 a.m., and so he went outside to see what was going on. As a result, he spotted two bodies on the road, and those two victims were teenagers he was acquainted with.

Investigators still do not have any idea what led up to this violent accident. But they do suspect that there was a third person involved in the shooting but left the scene before the police arrived. Investigation is still ongoing for this particular shooting accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of the passing of the two unidentified teenage victims. Alas, they are not the first victims whose lives are taken away by a shooting accident. With about 40% of Americans claiming that they own a gun or that they live in a household with one, being shot by a gun or any other form of firearm is alarmingly common in the U.S. In fact, statistics show that gun violence is considered a leading cause of death in America, with about 124,760 people shot every year (in murders, assaults, suicides/suicide attempts, unintentional shootings, or by police intervention), and from that number, about 35,141 die from gun violence and about 89,620 people survive from it.

San Antonio — Man Dead After Struck by Vehicle on Picoso Street

Posted on Tuesday, February 5th, 2019 at 1:27 am    

A fatal auto-pedestrian accident that occurred on Colima Street and Picoso Street in San Antonio, Texas left one man dead on Thursday, January 31, 2019.

According to the San Antonio Police Department, at approximately 10:45 a.m., a Ford F-150 pickup truck was traveling northbound on Picoso Street when it suddenly veered off the road, thus hitting a telephone pole and a victim who was in his 60s. The unidentified victim was reported to have arrived home at the time of the accident, and he was about to walk inside the house when he was struck. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The police believed that the driver, who is in his mid-50s, may have suffered a medical episode prior to the accident.

Investigation is still ongoing for this particular accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of the unidentified victim. Alas, he is not the first victim whose life is taken away by a car accident. Car accidents are a problem in this day and age, and yet, they still continue to happen on a regular basis. In a statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident. This can be translated to about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

Car accidents are reported to be deadly for pedestrians particularly. The Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) estimates that the number of pedestrian deaths in the U.S. is 6,000 in 2017. This is a 27% increase from 2007 to 2016, and it is said that the number in 2017 is a 25-year high.

Furthermore, there are five states that had the most number of pedestrian fatalities in 2017, and these are California, Florida, New York, Arizona, and Texas. These states accounted for about 43% of pedestrian fatalities during the first half of 2017 despite the fact that they are home to only 30% of the U.S. population. The GHSA also claims that children and the elderly are the most vulnerable to this kind of accident.

Car accidents, especially the auto-pedestrian ones, are quite difficult to the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/auto-pedestrian accidents, so if you are a victim of this kind of accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help from these lawyers.

Waco — Woman Dead After Shot Inside Home

Posted on Tuesday, February 5th, 2019 at 1:25 am    

A shooting accident that occurred in Waco, Texas left a woman dead inside her own home on Sunday, February 3, 2019.

According to Waco Police Sgt. Patrick Swanton, the accident happened in the 5600 block of Wilshire Drive at approximately 3:30 a.m. When the officers arrived at the address, they found a woman in her mid-20s shot to death. A witness claimed that they saw someone come into the house and shoot the woman.

As of right now, there are no possible suspects yet, but the police are actively investigating this accident as a murder.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of unidentified woman. Alas, she is not the first one whose life is taken away by a shooting accident.

Houston — Man Dead After Shooting at 6633 West Airport Boulevard

Posted on Monday, February 4th, 2019 at 12:50 am    

At approximately 1:15 a.m. on Tuesday, January 29, 2019, a fatal shooting occurred at 6633 West Airport Boulevard that resulted to the death of one man.

According to the Houston Police Department Division Detectives S. Overstreet and T. Andrade, the victim, a 45-year-old man who is yet to be identified by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences, was found dead inside his apartment at the aforementioned address. Witnesses claimed that they heard gunshots at about 1 a.m., and then they saw two young-looking black males flee from the victim’s apartment. They then fled in a white Dodge Caravan.

Investigators said that the motive for this shooting may have been robbery.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of the unidentified victim. Sadly, he is not the first victim whose life is taken away by a shooting accident. With about 40% of Americans claiming that they own a gun or that they live in a household with one, being shot by a gun or any other form of firearm is alarmingly common in the U.S. In fact, statistics show that gun violence is considered a leading cause of death in America, with about 124,760 people shot every year (in murders, assaults, suicides/suicide attempts, unintentional shootings, or by police intervention) and from that number, about 35,141 die from gun violence and about 89,620 people survive from it.
