Photographer looking for couple whose proposal he captured on camera

Channel 10 news - Fri, 10/19/2018 - 16:34

A marriage proposal is one of life’s most special moments. One Michigan photographer snapped one by chance at Yosemite National Park.

Now his search is on to find the couple in the photo.

"Honestly, I couldn't believe what was happening," Matthew Dippel said.

Dippel accidentally captured the moment while shooting at the park on October 6.

"I didn't have a lot of time to act and I already had my settings all ready to go and I just pointed my camera at them and snapped away,” he said.

Dippel said he rushed to find the couple, asking several people at the park that day if they knew the man and woman in the photo.

But with no luck, he took his inquiry to the internet.

"I posted it in hopes to find them on everything and now on Twitter, it's gone viral,” he said.

But thousands of likes and retweets later and still no answer.

Dippel said he won’t give up until he finds them.

"I truly hope the photo finds you. I've got a pretty solid photo for you and I'd really like to share it with you cause it's a truly beautiful moment,” he said.

Teen who planned mass shooting at Hilliard-Davidson High School released from prison

Channel 10 news - Fri, 10/19/2018 - 13:29

The teen who was sentenced to prison for planning a mass shooting at Hilliard-Davidson High School was released Friday.

According to court records, John Staley III was ordered to live in a halfway house for 3 to 6 months and serve five years of probation.

In January, Staley was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder. He was sentenced to four years in prison in February.

Stanley planned the mass shooting in the fall of 2016.

Authorities said his plans were advanced, including diagrams of the building, online research, and efforts to recruit other students to help carry it out.

They said records from his computer also showed racist, Nazi and neo-Nazi propaganda.

Hilliard Police arrested Staley in October 2016, based on a tip from another student.

He was originally charged in juvenile court, but a judge ordered him prosecuted as an adult.

Staley has appealed the result of the criminal case. The appeals is still going through the court process.

Ohio student's class essay about being raped sends man to prison

Channel 10 news - Fri, 10/19/2018 - 12:17

FREMONT, Ohio (AP) — A high school student's writing assignment about overcoming obstacles in her life led to a man pleading guilty to raping her and two sisters years ago, authorities said.

Detectives in Sandusky County began investigating after school officials from Vanguard Tech Center alerted children services and the sheriff's office about the essay.

"She had disclosed that she had been sexually abused as a child," said sheriff Det. Sgt. Kenneth Arp.

A county judge sentenced 43-year-old Anthony Knight to 20 years in prison Tuesday after he pleaded guilty to felony charges of rape. A message seeking comment was left with Knight's attorney.

The three sisters said they initially reluctant to come forward because they had not reported it in the past, but they all discussed being raped and reported different forms of abuse, Arp said. The youngest was 7 when she was first sexually abused, he said.

The siblings' statements to detectives corroborated information authorities had gathered in other interviews, he said.

"This happened years ago," Arp said, adding that the three sisters showed a lot of courage coming forward.

Authorities credited the school with quickly alerting them to the allegations in the essay. The school's superintendent declined to comment because he wanted to protect the student.

Keith Urban serenades gravely ill fan in hospital before Ohio concert

Channel 10 news - Fri, 10/19/2018 - 11:50

Country music superstar Keith Urban played an intimate concert for an Ohio fan who couldn't make it to his performance Thursday night. He visited Marissa English, who is in hospice care, after a social media push from her nurses to get him to meet her during his stint in the Buckeye state, CBS affiliate WTOL reports.

In front of a sold-out concert Thursday, Urban said he got to meet who he now believes is his "biggest" fan, "a beautiful girl named Marissa."

Urban has fans all over the world, but her mother says you'd be hard-pressed to find someone as dedicated as Marissa.

"She has memorabilia from a couple of the other concerts we've been to," Marissa's mother, Marlise Matthews told WTOL. "She has a T-shirt that we put on a pillow that's beside her all the time. It's actually cute because she'll pick up the pillow and hug it and kiss it (and) ... she'll point at it and say 'Mr. Hottie.'"

Marissa is 25 years old -- a miracle in and of itself. Doctors weren't optimistic when she was born with a myriad of health conditions including an inoperable cyst on her brain, severe scoliosis and cerebral palsy, WTOL reports.

"She stayed in the hospital five and a half months and when we took her home, the doctors said, 'Go home and enjoy her for possibly a year. That might be the longest you have her,'" Marlise said.

The ones who made the meeting happen, the nurses at Mercy Health St. Vincent Hospital, told WTOL Marissa's health is rapidly declining. A social media campaign to bring Keith Urban to meet Marissa in person gained steam in recent weeks.

"We knew how important it was to Marissa to be at that concert tonight and since she wasn't able to we were hoping to try and find some way to have Keith make a connection with her," nurse Jan Cassity said.

Then on Thursday, video from inside the hospital room shows Urban kneeling beside her and singing to her. He took photos hugging her –– and giving her a moment she'll never forget.

"She just has such a fascination with Keith and loves to watch him on TV and listen to his music," said Marissa's in-home nurse Jackie Codding. "I think it would mean the world to her."

Mega Millions jackpot hits $1 billion for Friday night's drawing

Channel 10 news - Fri, 10/19/2018 - 10:21

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Mega Millions jackpot has soared to an estimated $1 billion, as the second-largest lottery prize in U.S. lottery history gets even bigger.

Lottery officials increased the grand prize just hours ahead of the Friday night drawing. The prize climbed from $970 million.

Although the jackpot keeps increasing , the odds of winning remain stuck at a miserable one in 302.5 million.

The prize has grown so large because no one has hit the jackpot since July 24, when a group in California won $543 million.

The $1 billion prize refers to the annuity option. Most winners opt for cash, which for Friday night's drawing would be $565 million.

Officials say that if there isn't a winner, the prize for Tuesday night's drawing would be $1.6 billion, tying the largest U.S. lottery prize.

Ohio National Guard training center renamed for former president

Channel 10 news - Fri, 10/19/2018 - 09:49

RAVENNA, Ohio — A military training center in northeastern Ohio has been renamed for the United States' 20th president.

The Ohio National Guard says its Camp Ravenna Joint Military Training Center in Portage and Trumbull counties was renamed Thursday as Camp James A. Garfield Joint Military Training Center.

The Guard says Garfield was a major-general in Ohio's militia, later known as the Ohio National Guard. The Ohio native became president in 1881 and was assassinated that year

The center used for military units, civilian law enforcement, and first responders is undergoing $37 million in upgrades projected for completion in 2022.

Maj. Gen. John Harris Jr., Ohio's assistant adjutant general for Army at the Ohio National Guard, said in a release that the state-of-the-art facility will allow training in "live, virtual and gaming scenarios."

Two sobriety checkpoints scheduled tonight in Franklin County

Channel 10 news - Fri, 10/19/2018 - 09:41

FRANKLIN COUNTY - The Franklin County DUI Task Force will hold two sobriety checkpoints this evening to combat impaired driving.

The first checkpoint location will be on Riverside Drive north of Bethel Road and the second location will be on Sawmill Road north of I-270.

Members of the Franklin County DUI Task Force will conduct the sobriety checks between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 12:30 a.m.

The task force says it wants to "impress upon those who will be consuming alcohol to plan for a designated driver or make other arrangements to get where they are going."


EDITOR’S NOTE: Why are the locations and times of a sobriety checkpoint released?

Guidelines issued by the NHTSA instruct law enforcement to “aggressively” publicize the locations.

The goal, according to the NHTSA, is to not only to deter impaired drivers from getting behind the wheel but also to assure the protection of constitutional rights for both police and the public.

DECATUR, Ga. — Police say a middle school English teacher in Georgia has been found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound after being accused of sexually assaulting a sixth-grade boy.

News outlets report a Gwinnett County police release says 28-year-old Zachary Meadors was found dead in a vehicle Wednesday afternoon.

A Dekalb County police warrant says the Freedom Middle School teacher was accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old male student, and was wanted on charges of child molestation, computer pornography, and child exploitation. He was placed on unpaid leave and scheduled to meet with district officials Monday, but didn't show up.

A missing persons report filed by Meadors' parents says he left several letters at their home that apologized for the "chaos he caused" and directed how to handle his finances.
