NC Man Pleads Guilty to Attempting to Aid ISIS

Posted on: October 30th, 2014 by ABC News No Comments

AndreyPopov/iStockphoto/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — A North Carolina man who attempted to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria pleaded guilty to attempting to aid an international terrorist organization.

Donald Ray Morgan, 44, was arrested on Aug. 2 at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York on a federal indictment for possession of a firearm by a felon. Court documents showed that Morgan “knowingly attempted to provide support and resources” to ISIS from January 2014 through August 2014.

On at least one occasion, Morgan even tried to travel from Lebanon to Syria to join ISIS.

Assistant Attorney General for the Middle District of North Carolina called the plea a representation of “our continued commitment to confronting those who attempt to travel abroad to support terrorist organizations.”

Morgan faces up to 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

“Donald Ray Morgan proved himself to be a threat to national security,” Special Agent in Charge John Strong of the FBI said Thursday. “American citizens who support terrorist organizations must be held accountable for their actions.”

Alleged PA Cop Shooter Eric Frein Capture Alive

Posted on: October 30th, 2014 by ABC News No Comments

Pennsylvania Dept of Transportation(CANADENSIS, Pa.) — Alleged cop shooter Eric Frein was captured alive on Thursday after a manhunt that lasted more than six weeks.

A federal law enforcement source and a Pennsylvania law enforcement source both confirmed to ABC News that Frein was captured alive. The Pennsylvania source said that Thursday was “a very good day,” but would not offer additional details on Frein’s capture.

On Sept. 12, Frein allegedly killed one Pennsylvania state trooper and injured a second after he opened fire at the Blooming Grove police barracks.

Frein had been added to the FBI’s most wanted fugitives list last month.

Police had conducted a manhunt for weeks in the woods of the Pocono Mountains. Police believed Frein, a self-trained survivalist from nearby Canadensis, escaped to the woods. They found two pipe bombs, an AK-47, ammunition and various food and supplies they believe belonged to the suspect.

On Tuesday, police investigated a possible sighting of Frein made by a resident in Barrett Township, said Trooper Connie Devens, a spokesperson for the Pennsylvania State Police.

Alleged PA Cop Shooter Eric Frein Captured Alive

Posted on: October 30th, 2014 by ABC News No Comments

Pennsylvania Dept of Transportation(CANADENSIS, Pa.) — Alleged cop shooter Eric Frein was captured alive on Thursday after a manhunt that lasted more than six weeks.

A federal law enforcement source and a Pennsylvania law enforcement source both confirmed to ABC News that Frein was captured alive. The Pennsylvania source said that Thursday was “a very good day,” but would not offer additional details on Frein’s capture.

Frein was captured in an airport hanger at the Pocono Mountain Municipal Airport, the source said, noting that no shots were fired. The airport is two miles northwest of Mount Pocono, in Monroe County, near Tannersville.

On Sept. 12, Frein allegedly killed one Pennsylvania state trooper and injured a second after he opened fire at the Blooming Grove police barracks.

Frein had been added to the FBI’s most wanted fugitives list last month.

Police had conducted a manhunt for weeks in the woods of the Pocono Mountains. Police believed Frein, a self-trained survivalist from nearby Canadensis, escaped to the woods. They found two pipe bombs, an AK-47, ammunition and various food and supplies they believe belonged to the suspect.

On Tuesday, police investigated a possible sighting of Frein made by a resident in Barrett Township, said Trooper Connie Devens, a spokesperson for the Pennsylvania State Police.

 Earlier this week, a giant helium balloon sent to Pennsylvania to aid in the manhunt was returned after just one day, police said. The unmanned balloon came from Ohio and was supposed to be quieter than a helicopter and provide similar technology to aviation equipment being used in the search, but at a lower cost, police said. But it was returned just a day later, police said today.

“Due to the tree canopy and rugged terrain of our search area the balloon was not as helpful as everyone hoped it would be,” said Trooper Tom Kelly, a spokesman for the Pennsylvania State Police.

A Pennsylvania town had banned trick-or-treating this year while hundreds of cops search nearby woods for Frein. Barrett Township said its annual Halloween parade and 5K Scarecrow Race were canceled indefinitely, and trick-or-treating was banned this year.

Notes found in the woods, allegedly penned by Frein, offered a “cold-blooded” and “chilling” account of how he shot and killed the trooper last month before escaping into the forest, authorities said.

Saint Louis County Prosecutor Says Leaks Not Coming from Grand Jury in Michael Brown Case

Posted on: October 30th, 2014 by ABC News No Comments

tomloel/iStockphoto/Thinkstock(FERGUSON, Mo.) — Saint Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch released a statement on Thursday that leaks involving the case of an officer-involved shooting that left 18-year-old Michael Brown dead in August are not coming from the grand jury in the case.

“No information or evidence has been released by the grand jury,” McCulloch’s statement said. While he acknowledged a tweet from “several weeks ago” which claimed that a person serving on the grand jury had discussed the case with a friend, McCulloch says bluntly, “That did not happen.”

“An investigation revealed that the account had, indeed, been hacked and the origin/author of the tweet is unknown,” according to the statement.

McCulloch also denied recent reports that testimony and documents had been leaked “by or from the grand jury.” He pointed specifically to reports in The New York Times, which said it received information from a government source briefed on the case, and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, which said the documents they obtained did not come from the grand jury.

“Whoever is releasing this information is doing great disservice to the grand jury process,” McCulloch concluded. Though he assured the public that “anyone suggesting that the ‘integrity of the entire grand jury process has been destroyed’ is wrong, irresponsible and does a great disservice to the public.”
