WINTER PARK, Fla. — A woman is facing second-degree murder charges after she zipped her boyfriend inside a suitcase and left him in there for several hours, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
Sarah Boone, 42, is being held without bond in connection to the death of Jorge Torres, Jr.
Boone told deputies the two thought it would be funny if Torres got inside a suitcase in the living room during a game of hide and seek, the arrest affidavit states. She then zipped him inside it.
Boone told deputies the two had been drinking alcohol that night and she went upstairs and passed out in her bed with Torres still inside the suitcase.
She woke up several hours later to her cellphone ringing multiple times and went downstairs. She did not see Torres anywhere in the apartment. She “then realized that he was possibly still inside the suitcase,” the arrest affidavit states.
She unzipped it to find Torres inside, unresponsive and not breathing. He was pronounced dead by responding Orange County Fire Department a short time later.
The coronavirus outbreak is being “weaponised” by the media to bring down Donald Trump when in fact it is simply a version of the “common cold”, the conservative radio host and presidential medal of freedom recipient Rush Limbaugh claimed on Monday.
His comments were widely condemned: more than 80,000 people are known to have contracted the virus worldwide and 2,700 are known to have died. Authorities are struggling to cope in China, Iran, Italy and Tenerife.
ORLANDO — Kaia Rolle was sitting, listening to a school employee read her a story when two officers came in the room to arrest her.
“What are those for?” the 6-year-old girl asked the Orlando police officers.
“They’re for you,” Officer Dennis Turner said about the zip ties, before another officer tightened them around her wrists. Kaia immediately began weeping.
“No … no, don’t put handcuffs on!” she wailed in body camera footage from the arrest, which Kaia’s family shared with the Orlando Sentinel on Monday evening. The arrests of the girl and another 6-year-old at Lucious & Emma Nixon Academy in September drew national headlines and widespread condemnation, leading to the officer’s firing.
Kaia, a first grader at the charter school, had a tantrum earlier in the day where she had kicked and punched three school employees, leading to her arrest on a charge of misdemeanor battery, according to her arrest report. However, by the time Turner and another officer approached Kaia to detain, cuff and arrest her, the girl had calmed down, the video shows.
