4-Year-Old Praised as Hero After Keeping 3-Month-Old Alive for Days Alone

SUSPECT: David Kooros Parsa

WHAT HAPPENED: Murder-suicide

THE DETAILS: On Sunday, April 14th, concerned neighbors watched as police officers with the Los Angeles Police Department conducted a well-check on the house nearby. The neighbors knew that two young children lived in the home, but officers weren’t able to make contact with anyone at the door. The neighbors eventually went into the house themselves, and they discovered a four-year-old and 3-month-old child in a very concerning state. They also found their parents upstairs. Both had been deceased for days. Initial investigations point to the fact that David Parsa shot his wife, Mihoko Koike, before turning the firearm on himself. Somehow, the four-year-old managed to care for the youngster and herself for three days prior to being rescued.

TN Mayor Arrested Days Prior to Election

SUSPECT: Mayor Joel Coe

CHARGES: Criminal conspiracy to sell illegal drugs, tampering with evidence

DATE OF ARREST: April 25

THE DETAILS: Mayor Joel Coe should be focused on running his re-election campaign, but instead, he’s apparently been busy planning a purchase of a pill press. A pill press is most often used to make illegal drugs, so it remains unclear why the Mayor was interested in buying one. The police requested the messages from the Mayor, but he apparently deleted them from his device before they could read them. Once authorities discovered the messages from the Mayor through other means, they were shocked to read he had planned to hide the press from police by using trash bags.
