The station only released snippets of the March 1 interview.

“She went to tie her [daughter] up. She said, ‘Would you please help me? I don’t know how to tie nobody up. I ain’t never did this.’ Sure, I’ll help. I did tie the other two up though,” Hamilton told investigators with the Middletown Division of Police.

Lexington Co. Woman convicted in connection with home invasion, murder of 8 year old boy

In the course of the investigation, Monette made multiple inconsistent statements which led investigators to focus on her ties to local gang members.

On May 17, 2019, Monette confessed to conspiring with others to commit the staged home invasion and “have a gun held to her head” as part of the plan for a robbery.

Testimony revealed that the motive for the robbery was to steal large amounts of cash that Austin Hanahan had recently withdrawn from a bank, as well as marijuana present in the home.

The intruder connected to this case remains at large despite the efforts of multiple law enforcement agencies to confirm his identity.

Anyone with information regarding this crime or the identity of the intruder is urged to contact Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.

Christipher Shafer, 48, was handed down a 120 year to life sentence after being convicted on five counts of sexual assault in June.

Shafer’s crimes surfaced after the victims aged seven and nine came out in the open and spoke out about their traumas in 2018. The incidents allegedly happened in 2016. Jurors sat through a rather daunting task of listening to the girls narrate their horrific experiences, which included being forced to watch porn aside from being touched inappropriately.

The girls further revealed that any signs of resistance would be met with a smack of their heads by Shafer.

Shafer was allegedly obsessed with making the girls watch bondage, domination, or sadomasochism scenes that he often played on his phone, only to force them to act out and emulate what they had just watched while being in bed with him.

Muklasha recently resumed contact with her children after she came to know about her ex-husband’s death. However, Muklasha’s religious conversion angered Hib and triggered him to commit the premeditated murder, according to prosecutors.

Hib has been accused of setting up a meeting with his mother on Aug. 5 near Nazareth with the intention of killing her and subsequently disposing of her remains. After picking up his mother Muklasha in his car, Hib reportedly “strangled her with a rope or his hands, alone or with others, with the intention of causing her death,” according to court documents.

After murdering his mother, Hib noticed a police roadblock ahead, rammed into it, and traveled toward the Jordan River. There, he reportedly dug a pit, buried Muklasha’s body, and covered the spot with rocks and dry leaves to make the unmarked grave harder to locate, the Times of Israel reported.

Commentary/Opinion:

Climate activist JUSTIFIES destruction, but WE’RE the ‘dangerous’ ones?

A recent podcast from The New Yorker’s Radio Hour normalized one climate activist’s desire for property destruction, theft, and more.

Glenn plays clips from the interview with Andreas Malm, who says he has a problem with other activists’ ‘dogmatic commitment to nonviolence.’
The acts he believes are acceptable — in order to further the goals of climate activism — are SHOCKING.

But even more shocking is the left’s insistence that WE’RE the ‘dangerous’ ones in today’s society, when far-left radicals like Malm prove the opposite to be true…

The Media Buries the Bodies

This is not rocket science. The Democrats are concentrating their efforts on taking legal guns out of the hands of legal gun owners. They are doing this when gun violence in cities like New York and Chicago are becoming shooting galleries.

The most significant rise of crime is black-on-black violence. Gang violence is driving the increase in homicide numbers. Talking heads like Joy Reid and Don Lemon can mock Republicans, but neither will admit the data is correct.

They want to deflect away from reality. It doesn’t work, and it makes these people look foolish.CNN, MSNBC, and the Networks are downplaying the thought that crime is on the rise and mock anyone who feels differently.

Those of us who dig into the facts know the reality of homicides and gun violence is on, not just a rise, but a sharp rise.To admit the facts would not support the Defund the Police movement of the radical left.
