GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The Problem Solvers usually try to help people get money back, but in Karen Warner’s case, she needs help getting rid of funds she says don’t belong to her. Warner is trying to give $5,705 back to the Veterans Administration (VA). “I want to return the money which is owed to the vets, the eligible vets and their families cause that’s the right thing to do,” she said. “And I want closure since my mother died,” Warner added.
Flint, MI – The husband of a woman who died nearly five years ago is accused of trying to hire a hit man and then poisoning her with heroin.
Christina Ann-Thompson Harris died in her home on Bay Street in Davison on Sept. 29, 2014, at 36 years old. She had given birth to the couple’s second child together in the weeks before her death.
The Genesee County Medical Examiner’s Office initially ruled her death as an accidental heroin overdose.
However, police continued investigating and obtained information showing her husband, 44-year-old Jason Thomas Harris, allegedly tried to hire a hit man to kill her and eventually fed her cereal poisoned with heroin.
The surveillance video, which was played in court but not allowed to be broadcast while the trial was ongoing, was taken outside of the Knights Inn Motel in Grand Blanc. The struggle, prosecutors say, took place between 1:30AM and 2:00AM. It was released today by the Wayne County Prosecutor’s office through a public records request.
The first clip shows Cleaves’ accuser walking away from the motel partially nude, followed closely by Cleaves in pursuit. Cleaves is seen wearing only socks.
The video shows Cleaves grab the woman, who we are not identifying, spin her around and pull her back towards the room she just tried to leave. She resists, bending her knees and trying to pull away.
SAND LAKE, MICH. — When a Michigan family headed out to Gatlinburg, Tennessee to see the Great Smoky Mountains , they got more than they bargained for. They soon met two families of bears living near their rental home. “40 minutes into unpacking, my grandson Caden saw a bear up behind the house,” grandmother Nicole Hawley said.
CANTON, Mich. The boy was suspended for one day, and his mother believes the consequences should have ended there.
WXYZ reports that the boy’s mother, Cameishi Lindley, was stunned when she found out.
“These kids are basically playing a game we all have played,” Lindley said.
A police report indicates another student was struck in the face with a ball thrown by Lindley’s son, Bryce Lindley, on April 29 at Eriksson Elementary School in Canton. The injured student’s mother said he has a medical condition that makes head injuries especially dangerous.
The assault charge has been deemed absurd by many readers online, with some even calling the punishment racist.
“Some 10 year olds were playing dodgeball on the playground at school. A white kid got hit with the ball. Then they charged the 10 year old Black child with assault,” Tariq Nasheed posted. “This is why we should not prioritize any of these border issues, while our kids are racially targeted.”
