Rockstar’s True Crime: 3 Surprisingly Real Video Game Crimes

Everyone expects video-game publisher Rockstar to push the boundaries when it comes to crime. From the delinquent behavior in Bully to train robberies in the Old West, Rockstar is in the business of bringing crazy crimes to life. Unfortunately, so are everyday people, who may even inadvertently find themselves re-enacting favorite scenes from video games. These three events leapt off the screen and into headlines in the last year as video-game crimes made manifest.

While it was no Rhino tank, the vehicle he commandeered for a drive to, and nearly through, the nearest supermarket was the closest thing at hand: a 12-ton Russian military armored transport.

The fully amphibious armored personnel carrier proved more than a match

Okla. Woman Sentenced to 25 Years for Molesting Toddler and Sending Video to Online Boyfriend

A Tulsa woman has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison for sexually molesting a toddler and sending videos of the sex acts to her online boyfriend, PEOPLE confirms.

Jerrica Ann Renee Teehee Lackey, 30, pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a child under the age of 12, according to court records.

Lackey was arrested in May after she called 911 and admitted to molesting the 16-month-old girl, according to a criminal complaint obtained by PEOPLE.

The call came after the girl’s father found sexual videos and pictures of his daughter on Lackey’s phone. Police alleged the images were sent to a man she says she was dating in Florida over the chat app Kik.

When the father told Lackey he was going to call police, Lackey, whose username on the app was “DaddysPrincess7787”, called 911 and turned herself in, according to the complaint.

New Video Shows Sherri Papini Minutes Before Being Found Following Her Mysterious Disappearance

Minutes before she was found on the side of the road early on Thanksgiving morning last year, missing California mom-of-two Sherri Papini was seen running to a place of worship and then back toward the interstate, according to newly released surveillance video.

The black-and-white footage — sent to reporters on Tuesday by Shasta County, California, investigators — shows Papini near a Kingdom Hall of Jehovah Witnesses in Woodland, California, about 4:15 a.m. on Nov. 24, 2016.

Ga. Mom Allegedly Killed 2 Kids by Putting Them in Oven Before Video-Calling Their Dad to Show Scene

A Georgia mom who allegedly murdered her young sons — and then showed the children’s father the scene on a video call — killed the boys “by placing them in an oven and turning it on,” according to an arrest warrant obtained by multiple outlets.

Police have charged Lamora Williams with two counts of murder in the deaths of her 1- and 2-year-old sons after Atlanta police officials discovered the children with burn marks, officials have said.

Williams, 24, is currently being held in the Fulton County Jail after waiving her first appearance in front of a judge on Monday, according to online jail records. She is reportedly being held without bond and no court date has been set, multiple reports say. PEOPLE’s attempts to reach a spokesperson for the Fulton County Superior Court were unsuccessful.

Ga. Mom Allegedly Murders Young Sons and Then Video-Calls Their Father to Show Him the Scene

An Atlanta mom is accused of murdering two of her young sons and then placing a video call to the children’s father to show him the scene, according to multiple local news reports.

Lamora Williams, 24, is charged with two counts of murder, according to the Atlanta Police Department.

Authorities have not released her children’s cause of death, but Atlanta police said that according to a preliminary investigation, the unnamed boys — ages 1 and 2 – “received burn marks on their bodies at some point, possibly from the stove.”

Williams allegedly told police she had left the children in the care of a relative about noon on Friday and found them dead about 11:30 that night, when she returned home.

However, “at this time investigators do not believe the children’s mother left them with a caregiver,” according to the police statement.

The father of the boys, Jameel Penn, told local TV station WSB and Read more at: http://people.com/crime/atlanta-mom-murders-sons-video-calls-their-father/

5 fall TV trends: Recycling, superheroes, true crime, and more (video)

There are dozens of new shows will premiere during the 2017 fall TV season, and while there’s some variety among the newcomers, five trends stand out. Such series as the “Will Grace” revival, “SEAL Team,” “Law Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders,” and others are examples of TV’s habit of following the herd.

Here are the five trends that stand out in the fall TV season:

1. Superheroes: Following in the inspired-by-comics footsteps of such series as “Supergirl” and “The Flash” on The CW and “Daredevil” and “Luke Cage” on Netflix, TV is all over the superhero fad. Examples this fall include “The Gifted,” on Fox (premiering Oct. 2) about children who have mutant powers; “Marvel’s Inhumans,” on ABC (Sept. 29) about beings with special powers; and “Marvel’s Runaways” (Nov. 21), on Hulu, about teens who discover their parents aren’t just annoying, they’re villains.
