Calm before the storm: The Port St John neighbourhood where the family livedScene: Sheriff's deputies in Brevard County investigating after 33-year-old Tanya Thomas shot her four children and then herself
11:49 EST           15 May 2012

A mother-of-four killed her children and then herself early on Tuesday morning.

Sheriff’s deputies in Brevard County, Florida said 33-year-old Tanya Thomas on Tuesday shot her four children, who ranged in age from 12 to 17.

They were Joel, 12, Jazlin, 13, Jaxs, 15, and Pebbles Johnson, 17, deputies said, all of whom lived at the Port St John property with their mother.

Their father, who has been told of their deaths, lives separately, but also in Brevard County, according to the New York Post.

A neighbour told deputies they were woken up by the gunshots and heard a knock at the door. Three of the victims, who appeared to have been shot, were standing there asking for help.

They said Thomas came out of her house and calmly called over to the kids to return home.

‘She was very calm,’ sheriff’s spokesman Tom Goodyear said of the neighbor’s report. ‘She called them back and they walked back to the house.’

On arrival deputies found a Pebbles’, critically injured, lying in the front yard of 7245 Bright Avenue. She was taken by police car to an ambulance as a SWAT team surrounded the home.

Thomas was seen at the front door holding a gun but went back inside when she saw the officers in her front yard.

A short time later more gunfire was heard, prompting the SWAT team to go in through a back entrance.

Once inside they found the four other bodies.

Deputies had been at the home a few weeks ago on a domestic call after a neighbor called 911. The Orlando Sentinel reported that Jaxs was arrested on a domestic violence charge which also involved his mother.

Neighbour Travis St. Peter, told Florida Today that the family was known in the neighborhood for being disruptive, with police often being called to the house.

‘They were just known for being hoodlums,’ he said of the children, adding that they were often seen running aroundd late at night, ‘terrorizing our dogs and setting off firecrackers.’

A friend of Thomas told the Sentinel that they had woken to a text message sent by the woman during the night to say that she wished to be cremated along with her children. He did not see that message until he woke up this morning, hours after the killings.

Police would not speculate on a motive, or whether Thomas had planned the mass murder.

Port St. John is about 15 miles west of Cape Canaveral. The area is known as the ‘Space Coast’ because it is the home of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, home of numerous famed shuttle launches.

11:12 a.m. EST        April 20, 2012

After more than a week in jail, George Zimmerman found out today that he will be allowed bail on the second-degree murder charge he faces in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Judge Kenneth Lester said Zimmerman’s bond will be set at $150,000. He will be placed on GPS monitoring, and will not be released from custody today.

Zimmerman arrived in court about 9 a.m., wearing a suit and tie and handcuffs, with a chain across his waist. He was seated next to his attorney, Mark O’Mara.

Also in the courtroom were Special Prosecutor Angela Corey, Trayvon Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, and family attorney Benjamin Crump.

Minutes before the judge ruled on his bond, Zimmerman took the stand and apologized to Trayvon Martin’s family.

“I did not know if he was armed or not,” Zimmerman said of Trayvon Martin on the night of the shooting. He said he’s sorry for the Martin family’s loss.

Asked why he waited so long to apologize, Zimmerman said he was told not to reach out to the family. He denied having changed his version of events during the investigation.

After brief testimony from Zimmerman, his attorney argued that his bail should be set at $15,000. O’Mara cited Zimmerman’s financial difficulties in arguing for the bond. He also pointed out that Zimmerman has been cooperative with law enforcement.

“He came in voluntarily and surrendered himself to law enforcement,” O’Mara said. “He is well established in the community.”

Prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda argued that the court should consider that Trayvon Martin “was minding his own business.” He was not committing a crime, De La Rionda said.

He said that Zimmerman should get no bond, or if he does get bond, it should be $1 million.

State Attorney’s investigator Dale Gilbreath testified earlier. O’Mara questioned him about the probable cause affidavit he signed for the second-degree murder charge. Gilbreath said he did not expect to testify at the hearing.

O’Mara grilled Gilbreath on his use of the word “profiling” in describing Zimmerman’s behavior that night, asking why he used the term. Gilbreath said the term indicates that Zimmerman saw the teen, then formed an opinion of him not based on any facts.

O’Mara asked Gilbreath about unattributed statements in several sections of the affidavit.

“‘Zimmerman confronted Martin.’ Those words, where’d you get them from,” O’Mara asked.

“According to one of the witnesses that we talked with, there were arguing words going on before this incident occured,” Gilbreath said. He said “confronted,” the word O’Mara took issue with, was one of probably 30 he could have used.

Prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda then questioned Gilbreath. He asked is there was any evidence that Trayvon Martin shouldn’t have been in the neighborhood where the shooting occurred, or was breaking any law. Gilbreath said no.

Gilbreath testified that there is video of Trayvon Martin buying Skittles and iced tea before the shooting. He also said that Trayvon was unarmed.

During further questioning by O’Mara, Gilbreath admitted that the state has no evidence who started the fight. There is also no evidence that Zimmerman didn’t walk back to his car after chasing Martin on foot, as the defendant has claimed.

However, he said that Zimmerman’s statements, as well as his description of the injuries he suffered, are contradicted by other evidence in the case.

As the hearing began, O’Mara surrendered Zimmerman’s passport. Then, members of Zimmerman’s family began testifying by phone, as had been arranged Thursday.

Zimmerman’s mother, Gladys Zimmerman, said she’s concerned for her son’s safety, as the family has recieved threats.

Gladys Zimmerman testified that her son was active in protesting in 2010, when a Sanford police lieutenant’s son was caught on camera punching a homeless man outside a bar. George handed out flyers advocating for an arrest, “so that poor man could have justice,” she said.

She said her son is very protective of people, regardless of race. He also worked as a mentor for children in need, she said.

Zimmerman’s father, Robert Zimmerman, said he would alert the court if his son failed to adhere to the conditions of his bond.

He said he doesn’t have much money to help his son with bail, but would take a second mortgage on his home to help secure his son’s release.

“I’m a disabled veteran, and don’t have a great deal of income,” the elder Zimmerman said. Of his son, he said, “I’ve never known him to be violent at all unless otherwise provoked, then he’d turn the other cheek.”

Prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda then asked Robert Zimmerman about his son’s finances. He also asked Robert Zimmerman about his son’s prior 2005 arrest, in which he was accused of striking a law enforcement officer near the University of Central Florida.

He said his son has “always been interested in criminal justice,” and is an honest man.

12:32 PM EST        Monday January 9, 2012

A Florida man, arrested Saturday for allegedly plotted to bomb night clubs and the sheriff’s headquarters in Tampa, Florida, faces a federal judge on a terror charge Monday afternoon, federal prosecutors said.

Sami Osmakac, a 25-year-old naturalized American born in Kosovo, planned a car bombing that would be followed by hostage-taking and the explosion of a suicide belt he planned to wear, according to a criminal complaint made public Monday.

“We all have to die, so why not die the Islamic way?” Osmakac allegedly told an undercover FBI employee, according to the complaint.

The federal investigation of Osmakac began in September when a “confidential human source” told the FBI that Osmakac, a resident of Pinellas Park, Florida, “asked for al Qaeda flags,” the complaint said.

A law enforcement official, who asked not to be identified because the official was not authorized to talk about the probe, said the suspect does not appear to have any ties to al Qaeda, and early information indicated he was “self-radicalized.”

“I don’t have any indication anyone else was involved in the plot and pushing this,” the official said.

By November, the suspect was discussing potential terror targets in Tampa and asked for the confidential source’s help in getting guns and explosives for the attacks, the complaint said.

The government’s source introduced Osmakac to an undercover FBI employee, which led to a December 21 meeting during which the suspect said “he wished to acquire an AK-47-style machine gun, Uzi submachine guns, high capacity magazines, grenades and an explosive belt,” the complaint said. He later allegedly gave the FBI employee a $500 down payment for the weapons, it said.

“The explosives and firearms that he allegedly sought and attempted to use were rendered inoperable by law enforcement and posed no threat to the public,” the government said.

Osmakac, in a New Year’s Day meeting with the undercover FBI employee, outlined his plot, it said. His alleged bomb targets were “night clubs in the Ybor City area of Tampa, the operations center of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office in Ybor City and a business in the South Tampa area of Tampa,” the government said.

After the car bombing, he would retrieve guns and explosives stashed in a Tampa hotel room to begin the second phase of his attacks, the complaint said.

He told the FBI employee that “he wanted to use the explosive belt to ‘get in somewhere where there’s a lot of people’ and take hostages,” the complaint said. He would then demand that the FBI “release some prisoners,” it said.

“Once I have this … they can take me in five million pieces,” he allegedly said, “an apparent reference to the explosive belt that would be attached to his waist,” the government said.

FBI agents arrested Osmakac Saturday night, just after he “made a video of himself explaining his motives for carrying out the planned violent attack,” the government said.

He is scheduled to make an initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Anthony Porcelli in Tampa at 2 p.m. Monday on one count of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

“This investigation was also predicated, in part, by assistance from the Muslim community,” U.S. Attorney Robert E. O’Neill said.

Thursday January 5, 2011

A restyled Casey Anthony has made a public debut, speaking publicly for the first time since being released from jail , addressing her video diary about adopting a dog, paying for her own computer and the optimism she feels about her future.

“The good thing is things are starting to look up and things are starting to change in a good way. Let’s just hope they stay, that things stay good and that they only get better,” she says before adding with a whisper, “They’ll only get better.”

ABC News confirmed from a source close to Anthony that the video was genuine.

In the Oct. 13 video, Anthony, 25, sports a bleached blonde bob that is dramatically different from the long, dark hair she often wore in a ponytail during her sensational murder trial which ended in her acquittal. She also wears dark-rimmed glasses and a white tank top and sits in what appears to be a leather office chair in a wood-paneled den or office with photos on the wall.

“There really hasn’t been that much going on except now for this and, you know, I’m extremely excited,” Anthony says. “I’m extremely excited that I’ll be able to Skype and obviously keep a video log, take some pictures and then I have something that I can finally call mine.”

Anthony was acquitted last July of murder in the death of her daughter, Caylee, but was convicted on four counts of lying to law enforcement for claiming that 2-year-old Caylee had been stolen by a babysitter. She is currently serving one year of probation in Florida for a check fraud conviction.

After being released from jail, Anthony went into hiding amid death threats from people who were shocked that she was not convicted of killing her daughter.

In the video, Anthony alternates between seeming relaxed and happy with being pensive and serious. She expresses excitement with her new video blog.

“This has just been such a blessing in so many ways and now I, in some ways, have someone to talk to when I’m by myself so I’m not bothering the poor dog who I’ve adopted and I love and he’s as much my dog as any of the other pets I’ve ever had,” she says.

Anthony does not mention her daughter or her parents during the video blog. She is estranged from her parents who made it clear that she cannot come home after Anthony’s lawyer accused her father of molesting her as a child and helping to dispose of Caylee’s body.

During the video, Anthony makes several comments about just starting to figure out the new gadgets in her life—a computer, camera and phone.

“I’m just starting to figure out my new computer and, I don’t know, I guess I’m liking it so far. It’s obviously a different ball game for me because I’ve never used this before,” she says. “I’ve actually now paid for my own computer. The camera was a gift, but these are things that are mine…that I don’t have to give back. It’s kind of me finally being able to say that I have some belongings that are mine that I’ll be able to take with me after I leave here next year.”

Anthony must stay in Florida as she serves out her year-long probation and checks in monthly with a probation officer. There is a possibility that she could get off probation early, but she says in the video, “It’s going to be a while [before] I leave.”

After speaking on and off for just over four minutes, Anthony signs off, but not before suggesting that there will be more to come from her.

“So, this is the end of my first video log. I’ll probably do another one later…maybe I’ll bring the dog, who knows?” Anthony says. “But this is again the first of many and I’m looking forward to this. It’s going to be scary because I hate being on camera, but, I don’t know, I need to conquer that fear at some point…this is a good start. So, here’s hoping. It’s the end of the first, just the beginning.”

August 17, 2011   3:38 PM ET

No Miami players were suspended for Wednesday morning’s practice on the heels of allegations by a former booster that could implicate dozens of current and former players in various NCAA violations, coach Al Golden said.

“Until we hear of an infraction or that we did break a rule, everybody is practicing,” Golden told a small group of reporters before the practice session.  “If it is determined that somebody broke rules, then certainly that will be first dealt with from a university standpoint, from an eligibility standpoint.”

Mike and Mike in the Morning

Former Miami Hurricanes quarterback Jim Kelly says he was shocked to hear about alleged NCAA violations at Miami. Plus, Kelly says he probably would have taken additional benefits, too.

Golden said he has thought about future suspensions, but said he doesn’t know all of the facts and did not read the inflammatory Yahoo! Sports story released Tuesday.

Nevin Shapiro, a former Miami booster who is serving a 20-year prison sentence for masterminding a $930 million Ponzi scheme, told Yahoo! Sports he provided impermissible benefits to 72 of the university’s athletes between 2002 and 2010.

Shapiro said he gave money, cars, yacht trips, jewelry, televisions and other gifts to numerous players, including several starters on Miami’s current roster. Shapiro also claimed he paid for nightclub outings, sex parties, restaurant meals and in one case, an abortion for a woman impregnated by a player.

Current Miami players named by Shapiro as receiving benefits included quarterback Jacory Harris, Ray Ray Armstrong, Travis Benjamin, Sean Spence, Marcus Forston, Vaughn Telemaque, Dyron Dye, Aldarius Johnson and Olivier Vernon. Former Hurricanes quarterback Robert Marve, now at Purdue, also was named by Shapiro, Yahoo! Sports said.

Former Hurricanes players allegedly to have received gifts from Shapiro who are now in the NFL or have played in the league include Devin Hester, Vince Wilfork, Jon Beason, Antrel Rolle, Sean Taylor.

SportsNation: Just how bad is it?

NCAA president Mark Emmert said Wednesday in an interview with ESPN Radio’s “Mike and Mike in the Morning” that Miami has been under investigation for at least five months.

“We were well aware of it and weren’t surprised by the sensational media coverage. We’ve been on top of it for a while, gathering information and collecting data,” he said.

Emmert released a statement about the investigation later Wednesday.

“If the assertions are true, the alleged conduct at the University of Miami is an illustration of the need for serious and fundamental change in many critical aspects of college sports,” Emmert said in the statement. “…The serious threats to the integrity of college sports are one of the key reasons why I called together more than 50 presidents and chancellors last week to drive substantive changes to Division I intercollegiate athletics.”

Emmert told ESPN Radio earlier Wednesday that he couldn’t comment on the specifics of the case but he did say that typical investigations take six to seven months.

Former Hurricanes star quarterback Jim Kelly also was a guest on “Mike and Mike in the Morning” and was audibly disappointed by details of the Yahoo! Sports report, calling the allegations “shocking and heartbreaking news.”

“This one, it hurt, because this is my alma mater, this is my school,” Kelly said. “To see the allegations and having this guy come out and put names behind all of it and saying up to 72 players, to me that’s shocking. I don’t know what else to say.”

Kelly said he understands that many college football players come from disadvantaged economic backgrounds and find the temptations difficult to ignore. “Back in the day if someone came up to me and offered me a thousand dollars and I might’ve taken it, because I came from a situation where we had no money. I’d never seen a $100 bill,” he explained.

What’s Next For Miami, Missouri?

Ex-Miami booster Nevin Shapiro has alleged Frank Haith, now coach at Missouri, knew Shapiro paid a Miami recruit $10,000. Andy Katz examines the possible implications for Haith, Miami and Missouri.

But at the same time, Kelly says the players must share the blame for taking gifts they know are against the rules and putting the program in danger.

“When you start talking about some of the things that he was offering  these guys and they were accepting them, they’ve gotta know that this is not right. That sooner or later you have that many players involved in this, that somebody’s gonna find out, you’re gonna get caught and you’re gonna take ‘The U’ down with you,” Kelly said. “You have to have some belief in your own  heart and mind that this is not right.”

Larry Coker, the Hurricanes’ coach from 2001 to 2006, hasn’t been contacted by the NCAA amid the allegations, a spokesman for Texas-San Antonio, the school he currently coaches for, said Wednesday.

Also, Bernard Thomas, a former Nebraska football player alleged to have accepted extra benefits from Shapiro, admitted that he had been on Shapiro’s yacht, but not while he was in college.

Thomas told The Associated Press he was on Shapiro’s yacht with two former Hurricanes players, Kellen Winslow Jr. and D.J. Williams, in 2005 when they had finished college.

“We all had money ourselves,” Thomas said. “We didn’t need anything from him.”

Former Hurricanes in the NFL were reluctant to discuss the case. Hester, when approached at a Chicago Bears practice, said: “If this is about the Miami thing, I ain’t got nothing.”

Tennessee Titans rookie Colin McCarthy, who played at Miami, wore an orange Hurricanes T-shirt when reporters talked to him after practice Tuesday night. He responded “no comment” to four questions.

Shapiro dubbed himself “Little Luke” in reference to Luther Campbell — aka Luke Skyywalker, the rapper who was a constant presence on the Hurricanes’ sideline during their 1980s glory days.

Campbell took exception to any comparisons.

“Nevin Shapiro wishes he could wear my shorts for one day,” Campbell wrote in a blog post. “That punk could never be me. First of all, I have never been a UM booster. I have never given a dime to the school. I have and always will support the players and the program out of civic pride, but I never violated any NCAA rules when I was the team’s biggest fan in the 1980s.”

Golden, who was hired from Temple in December, said he was unaware of any past transgressions at Miami, but said he did not feel blindsided by the recent rapid release of accusations.

“We’ll get through this,” he said Wednesday. “I feel like Temple prepared me for this opportunity. We had so many issues when we first got there and some of them were carryovers from the previous regime and we stood in there and fixed it, and we fixed it with the lowest APR in the country and we had players suspended for violations from things that happened before I got there. We had 54 scholarship athletes my first year and we came through it. I think that has prepared me for this. You can sit there and feel sorry for yourself and say you got blindsided, but at the end of the day, we have a chance to be a really good football team and we have a chance to be a great program moving forward.

“Nobody wants this to move along more quickly than I do,” he said. “The only way to do that is to fully cooperate. My role in this right now is to make sure the student-athletes are honest with the NCAA and university officials, but other than that I have no contact with the NCAA and I have no contact with any of the players in any of the particular issues they’re talking about.”

As Golden talked, his players walked onto the practice field behind him for their first session since the story broke. Golden said he has not addressed the matter with his players because he’s not allowed to, per NCAA rules. Players and assistant coaches were not available for comment.

A team manager was in a parking lot adjacent to the practice field by 7 a.m. ET, assigned to keep members of the media away from the players as they walked into the football building’s side entrance.

Golden said he didn’t know how his players were going to react.

“We’ve talked about being a mentally tough team and being a unified team,” Golden said. “This is going to test that. … I really don’t know what their attitude is going to be and how they’re going to approach practice here. I hope there’s good leadership in that locker room.”

“We’ve talked about being a mentally tough team and being a unified team. This is going to test that.

— Miami coach Al Golden

Miami opens the season with a road trip to Maryland on Labor Day. Golden said he has not adjusted his practice plan yet, despite the fact there could be suspensions that alter his game plan.

“When we start getting into preparation for Maryland — this is very basic preparation right now, we’re just trying to improve our team — but as we get ready for Maryland we’ll hopefully and swiftly learn if there were errors that were made,” Golden said. “I don’t know. I don’t know what’s in the article. I don’t know what the allegations are. All I go by is what the university, legal counsel tells me, and what the NCAA tells me. So if there are guys that are going to have to sit out games, then we’ll adjust our practice accordingly.”

Golden said that university officials should have informed him of the NCAA investigation or possible violations before he took the job if they had any knowledge of them.

“Only if they knew,” he said. “If they knew this was percolating, I believe they did have a responsibility to tell me.  But look, I’m happy here. My wife is happy here. We’ve got great kids on this team. We have commitments from 24 young men and their families that appreciate and share our core values moving forward.”

Despite his eagerness to move forward, Golden did concede it has been a difficult few days.

“I’m not going to say it’s not difficult,” he said. “I’m standing here in front of you because I want to make sure we get it right. As quickly as we can get to the bottom of whatever happened, then we can move forward. I wasn’t here when it happened. For me and my staff and the student-athletes, we’re trying to get to the bottom of it so we can move forward. One way to do that is to cooperate with the NCAA and get the truth.”

August 30, 2011    3:33 p.m.

The NCAA on Tuesday penalized eight Miami-Florida players in the wake of an investigation into the activities of one of the school’s former boosters.

All eight must miss at least one game and have been ordered to repay certain benefits as conditions for reinstatement. Quarterback Jacory Harris received one of the lighter penalties, a one-game suspension and repayment of more than $140.

“The NCAA has informed the University of Miami of their decisions regarding the reinstatement of eight student-athletes who were declared ineligible by the university last week,” said director of athletics Shawn Eichorst in a statement. “The student-athletes involved have acknowledged receiving improper benefits and will now be responsible for restitution and, in some cases, the student-athletes will also serve game suspensions. They understand that their actions demand consequences.”

All of the players in question were given impermissible benefits from now- disgraced former south Florida businessman Nevin Shapiro — who is currently serving a prison sentence for a multi-million-dollar Ponzi scheme — or members of the Hurricanes athletic staff.

The stiffest penalty was handed out to junior defensive lineman Olivier Vernon, who was suspended for six games and must repay more than $1,200 in benefits handed out primarily by Shapiro.

Junior defensive back Aravious “Ray-Ray” Armstrong and redshirt sophomore Dyron Dye will miss four games apiece and make repayment of more than $1,500 dollars between them.

All three were penalized for accepting those benefits while being recruited to Miami.

Finally, Harris, defensive linemen Marcus Forston and Adewale Ojomo, linebacker Sean Ryan Spence, and wide receiver Travis Benjamin will be suspended for one game. All five received various benefits from Shapiro and associates while enrolled at the university worth several hundred dollars.

The only player under investigation to escape punishment was senior defensive lineman Marcus Robinson, who was cleared of any possible violations.

“This university has the highest standards in all of our academic and athletic endeavors,” Eichorst added. “We will remain steadfast in our commitment to continue to build winning programs with the utmost of integrity. We will be more vigilant in our compliance and continue to work with the NCAA on the joint investigation to determine the facts.

“We appreciate the diligence and understanding of the NCAA staff and its handling of the student-athlete eligibility issues in an expeditious manner. I would also like to thank [head coach Al Golden] and his staff for their professionalism and leadership over the past few weeks.”

In an unrelated move on Tuesday, Golden revealed that wide receiver Aldarius Johnson was suspended indefinitely for an unspecified violation of team rules.

The Hurricanes, under new head coach Golden, kick off their 2011 schedule on September 5 at Maryland.
