Florida Teen Murder Suspect Says She's A Vampire

An 18-year-old Florida girl accused of helping lure a 16-year-old boy into a fatal trap says she's a vampire who has drunk the blood of her boyfriend. Stephanie Pistey confirmed assertions by police in Parker, Fla., that the people involved in the July murder of 16-year-old Jacob Hendershot were in a vampire cult. Pistey, who was arrested last Monday and charged with accessory to murder, said she sees herself as a modern day Dracula. "Since I was like 12 every fiber in my body, basically everything, I know this is going to be crazy, but I believe that I'm a vampire and part werewolf," Pistey told reportres. Police initially believed the boy was lured to a home and beaten to death because Pistey accused him of raping her. Now it is unclear what the motive was."Jacob didn't deserve to die. I didn't even know he was going to die, but I honestly knew that they were going to beat him up and in my opinion he deserved to get the s*** beat out of him. He didn't deserve to die," Pistey said in an interview Monday. Herndershot's body was dumped in a concrete enclosure. Five people, including Pistey, are charged with either murder or accessory after the fact. Pistey admits she was at co-defendant Tammy Morris' house when Hendershot was murdered, but says she was babysitting Morris' children. She denied drinking Hendershot's blood, but says she has drunk the blood of her fiancé and co-defendant William Chase, 25. Se said she expects to spend her life in prison. "Now that I'm here I'm pretty much figuring out I'm going to stay here the rest of my life," said Pistey.

I-394 Shooting Victim: 'Satan' Told Her She Was A Threat To Others

Edina Police are revealing new information about Katherine Gordon, the woman shot and killed by a police officer along I-394 last week. The Edina Police Department say they've seen the 57-year-old before, when she came into their police station at the end of July asking to be "locked up." She told them she believed she was a threat to herself or others, that she was suicidal. They released the details in an incident/investigation report this morning. Police say Gordon told them she had just driven up from her home in Altadena, California and was looking for somewhere in Minnesota to live.She told them a "Spirit" inside her, which she thinks is the spirit of the Devil or Satan, told her to go to the police. Police officers took Gordon to Fairview Southdale Hospital, the report states, "for health and safety reasons per her request." Hospital staff told one of the officers they didn't need a "police hold" put on her because of what she told them. The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office is investigating her shooting death on 394 last Thursday, and have not disclosed what led up to the shooting, other than to say that Gordon had a gun.

Mystery Creature That Nobody Can Identify

If this cute little chap looks a wee bit confused, it is no wonder. His big wide eyes stare out at the world around him - which in turn is staring back at him. Because nobody has seen a creature quite like this one before. With a nose that looks more like a rodent’s but long, pointy paws and white fur dappled with brown and orange, he is quite unique.
And zookeepers at Wenling, in eastern China, who were handed the animal by an anonymous man, have been unable to work out exactly what species he belongs to. They think they are looking at some strange type of monkey - but other students of nature might recognise the characteristics of a bush baby. As he sits in his cage, the creature therefore awaits an uncertain fate. And the zookeepers sit and monitor his development and hopes he grows up into something slightly more recognisable.

Gloucestershire Police Receive 12 UFO Reports

Triangular shapes in the sky, "flying saucers" and red flashing lights are just some of the reports people have made to police about UFOs flying over Gloucestershire. A Freedom of Information request has revealed the constabulary has had 12 official logs about unidentified flying objects from residents in the last two years. Among the calls that came in between April 26, 2008 and August 25 this year, was a sighting of a large yellow and pink disc flying above Cheltenham. Another resident reported 10 UFOs above his house. The officer reported in May 2008: "Caller states that his wife and son saw them too. They made no sound. Seemed to be below cloud level." A Cheltenham resident reported in June 2008 that he saw a "triangular shape in the sky", which he believed to be a spacecraft.In Tewkesbury, in October 2008, a resident phoned police and told them some sort of "influence" had caused his pet dog to run off by itself. Another report in Cheltenham in February 2010, states that a resident "has seen a spaceship really close to the houses". Described as "big with lights all around it and going up in the air. Didn't make any noise." A keen-eyed star-gazer attracted hundreds of people to his YouTube post when he took video footage of a flying object over Cheltenham in February this year.
The video was picked up by the website as an example of a UFO sighting that is not a hoax. Callum Potter, from the Cotswold Astronomical Society, said most astronomers have not come across anything they cannot explain. "Chinese lanterns are a common one. "You do get strange looking things and a lot of satellites move either very quickly or quite slowly, which can be confusing for people," he said. "I have not heard of anyone seeing anything that could reasonably be called a UFO. "But they do have some sort of reasonable explanation." Gloucestershire police does not record how much of officers' time is spent dealing with these sightings.
