Man Drives Car Into Lake At Tennessee Church Now Missing

Police are investigating a strange early incident at Bellevue Baptist Church in Cordova where one man died.

According to MPD spokesman Louis Brownlee, officers at the Appling Farms Station responded at about 4 a.m. to the church at 2000 Appling Road.

The PIO reports responding officers were told a man in a dark-colored vehicle had been speeding on church property just before driving into a pond.

The officers were told that as security personnel approached the vehicle, the occupant turned off the lights. The security officer who made the complaint said he then lost sight of the vehicle and as he got closer to the spot where it was last seen, he noticed it was in the middle of the pond.

Officers were told the man was seen sitting on the hood of the car with a phone in his hand, but the security worker again lost sight as he was calling police. When the security worker turned back around, Brownlee said, the man on the car was gone.

Additional officers were called to conduct a search, along with fire personnel who used a boat to locate a body near the last known spot of the vehicle.

At the time of this report, the police do not have the identity of the man.

Church Member Shoots Church Greeter

Church Member Shoots Church Greeter

Last week I reported a shooting in a Kansas City church involving a church greeter receiving a head wound when a man entered the church and shot him.

This week authorities made an arrest of the suspect, an apparent church member who lived in the neighborhood and was cited as a Good Samaritan in a recent car crash.

Like most things, once the police begin to investigate, the true story begins to emerge.

Last Sunday, police say one church member, Orlando Gentry, shot church greeter, Montell Bruce. Gentry is now charged with first degree assault, armed criminal action, and possession of a weapon.

The bullet grazed Bruce’s head. He suffered minor injuries.

Fields, the church pastor, discussed Gentry. “We still love him; we are praying that he gets his help and everything that he needs.”

Woman Taped To Light Post On College Campus

A strange story out of Oregon.  The Daily Emerald Reports:

“A 19-year-old woman was assaulted Thursday night; she was taped to a light post, according to a University of Oregon Campus Crime Alert.

The woman, currently unnamed, was walking from an 11th Avenue address to a friend’s residence in Barnhart Hall when a strange man approached her, offering to escort her. The woman did not know the man according to Kelly McIver, public information officer for UOPD.

When they reached the residence hall, the man grabbed her arm, forced her to the ground and taped her arm to a light post.

According to the crime alert, two Barnhart residence assistants freed the woman and called the police.

The man was identified to be around 20 years of age, white, brown haired and dressed in all black. The woman was unaffiliated with UO.

According to McIver, the woman claimed that the incident was odd, but mostly non-threatening.  Nonetheless, the UOPD wants to stress that any situation where an individual touches the body of another person without proper consent will not be tolerated, and is a serious matter.

The investigation of the incident is ongoing, and the UOPD is accepting any information about the assault, or any similar occurrences.”

Racial Hate Crime Alleged In New York

According to the New York Post,

“Three ski-mask wearing thugs grabbed a college student on a Queens street and tossed him in the back of a van where they beat robbed and shouted racial slurs at him, police said Friday.

The 21-year-old student at New York City College of Technology in Brooklyn was walking on 165th Street near 81st Avenue in Hillcrest Thursday at 4:35 p.m. when a black van pulled up alongside him.

The goons jumped out of the vehicle and threw the victim — who they repeatedly punched in the face — in the back of the vehicle.

“Get out of my country, you f–king sand n—er!” one of the attackers yelled at the victim, who is from Pakistan, police sources said.

The trio stole his backpack and his wallet, which contained his school ID, and $6 before kicking him out of the van and speeding off.

The suspects remained on the loose Friday.”
