News4Jax reporter Kelly Wiley tracked down the owner of the renovation property where Ahmaud Arbery was caught on video just minutes before he was gunned down by the son of a former police detective on Feb. 23.

Travis McMichael, 34, and his father Gregory McMichael, 64, are awaiting trial on felony murder and aggravated assault charges in Arbery's death.

The videos, published on May 10 by News4Jax, show a man who appears to be Arbery visiting the construction property on multiple occasions - day and night - as far back as October 2019.

In one undated video recorded at 2 a.m., a shirtless Black man is seen wandering around inside the unoccupied house that was under renovation. All of the videos appear to be of the same man.

The man seen on surveillance video in the house on February 23 was positively identified as Arbery by attorney Ben Crump, who represents Arbery's father.

Crump said the videos don't change the events leading up to Arbery's murder. Arbery did not appear to take anything from the house, and the videos do not justify the shooting that happened after he exited the house.

Welcome to the New World Order. Tech company are rushing to develop AI social distancing "enforcement" tools for the government.

California software developer Landing AI has created video surveillance software that calculates the distance between people and sounds an alarm if they get too close to one another.

"Landing AI has developed an AI-enabled social distancing detection tool that can detect if people are keeping a safe distance from each other by analyzing real-time video streams from the camera," the company said in a statement.

A similar technology is already in use by Amazon in its warehouses, with the company threatening to fire employees if they violate social distancing.

Police departments are arresting citizens who violate the social distancing rules during the coronavirus pandemic.

Police in Westport, Connecticut are testing a "pandemic drone" that monitors citizens' temperatures from almost 200 feet away and detects coughing and sneezing as well as heart and respiratory rates.

Police have 5 suspects in custody after a gang of nearly 20 boys savagely stomped and kicked a 15-year-old girl in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY on Thursday.

Shocking surveillance video shows the teen girl curled up in a fetal position on the ground while a pack of teens swarm her and begin stomping and kicking her.

The girl was rushed to a hospital, where she was treated for minor facial injuries and released.

Police are questioning the 5 boys who range in age from 14 to 16.

The violent assault was initially reported as a robbery. The victim allegedly lied when she told police the motive for the attack was robbery. The boys allegedly stole her cell phone and debit card.

One boy is seen in the video removing the girl's Air Jordan sneakers before fleeing.

The suspects, who turned themselves in on Friday, told investigators the brutal beat down was in retaliation for an earlier assault on a pregnant 14-year-old girl.

The 15-year-old girl and a cousin allegedly jumped the pregnant teenager earlier that day at school. The motive for the fight was not clear, but sources say the 14-year-old girl was impregnated by the victim's boyfriend, who is also 14.

Two of the boys seen attacking the 15-year-old in the video footage are brothers of the 14-year-old girl.

Police said the victim knew all of the boys involved in the beating. Their names and ages were not released and no charges have been filed, according to the NY Post.

The FedEx driver cursed while speaking to a fellow employee on his cell phone as he struggled with the oversized package.

The 144-pound sofa had been delivered by FedEx twice, but the furniture was damaged both times.

"Now we're wondering if it was broken because of the way they treat the merchandise," Wendorf told WISN.

According to FedEx's guidelines on its website, the package is within its acceptable weight limits of 150 pounds.

Wendorf said she sent the video to FedEx but she received no response. So she took her complaint to the news media.

Police in Fort Worth, Texas released dramatic body cam photos of the moment they rescued an 8 year old girl from a pedophile who snatched her off the street in broad daylight.

Video footage from a doorbell Ring camera shows the moment the girl was snatched from her mother's arms by 51-year-old Michael Webb.

The girl, who is not identified because she is the victim of a sex assault, was walking with her mother in a Fort Worth, Texas neighborhood in May, when Webb drove alongside them, exited the vehicle, and snatched the child.

The frantic mother fought with Webb but he managed to overpower her and take the girl. The mother's screams were captured on a Ring doorbell. "Help me! Help me! Please! My daughter just got kidnapped!"

The woman's screams brought neighbors out of their homes. Witnesses were able to give police a good description of the kidnapper's vehicle.

8 hours later, police and tactical SWAT teams surrounded a hotel where Webb was staying with the child. He hid her in a large hotel laundry basket and warned her not to make a sound.

Police body cam video shows the moment police dragged the naked kidnapper out of the hotel room and rescued the little girl.

"When they find her, you hear how just emotional it is for everyone. They are just so happy and relieved that they have her," said Erin Nealy Cox, US attorney for the Northern District of Texas.

Webb broke down in tears when he told investigators he scoped out the neighborhood before making his move. "I scoped it out pretty good... I know I missed somebody because, when I pushed the woman and grabbed her, I heard somebody screaming," said Webb.

He was convicted in September and sentenced to life in prison on Nov. 14. He also faces sexual assault charges in a separate case in Tarrant County.

The Sacramento County Sheriff's Office released surveillance video footage of a woman's final moments before she was executed in front of sheriff's deputies by her abusive boyfriend.

The violence occurred around 12:30 a.m. outside a Carmichael, California apartment complex on Oct. 27.

The video, which includes commentary by sheriff's spokeswoman Sgt. Tess Deterding, begins with a chaotic scene as the suspect fights with a woman and throws her to the ground, while trying to kick in an apartment door.

The man, who was later identified as Earnest Easterling, 25, lifts his shirt to reveal a handgun tucked into his waistband. "You got the police called on me! I didn't do sh*t!" he yelled to someone inside the apartment.

The woman, who was still on the ground, yelled to someone inside the apartment to lock her door. The woman was later identified as Chanell Brown, 23, Easterling's girlfriend.

At some point, Easterling left and returned to the apartment. "He had replaced the standard round magazine in his handgun with a 50 round drum magazine," Sgt. Deterding explained.

Multiple neighbors called 911 to report a man with a gun. He again tried to break the door down.

"Hey, on my mama. When they come, I'm blasting you... You broke my car, doing that weird s---," he said while punching Brown. "Ernest, stop!" she cried.

As sheriff's deputies arrived on the scene at 12:40 a.m., Brown walked toward them with her hands in the air. "Naw, bruh," Easterling said. "Ernie, go in the house," Brown told him.

As Brown walked behind a fence with her hands in the air, Easterling lunged at her and opened fire, killing her.

The three deputies unloaded their clips at Easterling, killing him instantly.

"That video speaks a thousand words," Sgt. Deterding told CBS News. "If you watch it, everything unfolds in a split second."

Brown's mother described her daughter as an "angel," and said she saved lives the night she died. "That's what really happened. She sacrificed her own life."

A family member said Easterling was Brown's first boyfriend. She said Brown's personality changed and she became distant after dating Easterling.

The family held a press conference on the day the video was released to the public. They said their goal is to prevent others domestic violence victims from meeting the same fate as Brown.

CAUTION: The video contains scenes of graphic violence that may be disturbing to some viewers.

Birmingham police have released new surveillance video from the night Kamille "Cupcake" McKinney was kidnapped, Al.com reports.

The video was captured by a surveillance camera positioned about a block away from where 3-year-old Kamille and another child played outside a public housing project on Oct. 12.

The video shows one man walk by the children without stopping. A second man, who has a distinctive limp, walks by and the children are seen leaving with him.

The video has no sound and police say the timestamp is incorrect. Kamille was abducted between 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 12. A witness saw a man pull Kamille into a blue Toyota Sequoia SUV that sped away.

Police later located the vehicle that was owned by one of two persons of interest who were detained in the case.

 

Police say the man with the limp is a suspect in the case. They declined to say if the man is in custody.

"Through our investigation and through statements, we've pretty much been able to identify the children and the second gentleman," Police Chief Patrick Smith said on Friday. "What we're trying to do is close the loop on the third individual in the video who was the first one who walks by as the children are playing."

He added: "We want to see if he has additional information or if he saw something that night that may be critical in this investigation."

A hotel employee turned the tables on an armed robber when she grabbed his gun after he dropped it on the counter to pick up the cash.

It happened at a Country Inn and Suites hotel in Paducah, Kentucky on Monday night. Surveillance video shows the female employee throwing cash at the hapless robber who dropped his gun on the counter to scoop up the cash.

As he bent down to pick the money up off the floor, the quick-thinking employee grabbed the gun and pointed it and him.

The suspect fled out the front door but he returned moments later demanding his gun. The woman pointed the pistol at him again, sending him fleeing into the parking lot.

The suspect was a white male with a thin build and curly blond hair. Police recovered the gun at the scene, and a white shirt and knit cap were found nearby on McBride Lane.

Phillips is charged with first-degree robbery and receiving a stolen firearm stemming from the robbery at the Country Inn and Suites hotel in Paducah, Kentucky on Monday night, according to WPSD Local 6 News.

The gun recovered at the hotel was reported stolen during a burglary at a home on Adams Street last week.

Police say a McCracken County Sheriff's deputy noticed the driver of a gray Dodge Stratus wasn't wearing his seat belt. He pulled the car over on Bridge Street on Tuesday afternoon. The deputy said the driver, Phillips, was acting nervous.

The deputy searched the car and found an Apple computer that was reported stolen from the same Adams Street home where a gun was taken during a burglary.

The deputy also found a white Stryper t-shirt of the same brand and style as the one the hotel robber wore to conceal his face. A white Stryper t-shirt and knit cap were found discarded near the hotel on Monday night.

A Paducah police detective made the connection between the computer, the gun and the white t-shirts, and Phillips was charged with the 2 robberies. He is currently being held without bond in the McCracken County Jail.
