Crash Video Files: Pleasant Grove, Dallas, Texas: 3 Killed In Alleged Hit-And-Run Accident – Mom Regina Romero and Daughters Araceli and Judith Romero; Grandson Injured

A mom and two daughters were killed in this Dallas, Texas crash. A grandson riding in the same car was injured. This has also become a serious criminal investigation because the other driver left the scene of the accident.

The incident occurred in the Pleasant Grove community. It was on Friday night, November 15, 2013, at the intersection of Dunlap Street and North Prairie Creek Road.

Victims:

The mother who died is Regina Romero. She was 45. Daughter Araceli Romero was 26, and daughter Judith Romero was 28. The grandson who was injured is 2 years old. His name was not published.

Cause:

Araceli Romero was driving and had a collision with the suspect’s SUV when she was turning from North Prairie Creek to Dunlap. It is not really clear from reports whether one of the drivers was at fault. But that is only part of the story since hit and run can still be prosecuted as a crime separate and apart from fault in the actual crash.

Criminal Charges?

Witnesses said that the driver who took off actually tried to help briefly but then left the scene. From a criminal perspective, this is really bad for him because it shows that he knew very well that he was involved in an accident. He can’t really claim he didn’t know what happened. So if caught, the odds that he will be charged with at least a hit and run are very high.

Crime Video Files: Dallas, Texas: Teen Jasper Okeith Adams Jr. Arrested After Allegedly Shooting And Killing Two Different Victims – Jeanine Ratliff And Raymond Rider

A teen male has been arrested for homicide for two separate occasions and two gunshot victims. He allegedly shot and killed a woman on September 3, 2013, and a man on Saturday, September 14, 2013. In both cases, the working motive theory is related to drugs and/or money.

Police say evidence includes a confession that the teenage suspect killed the victims.

Victims/Incidents:

1. Victim Jeanine Ratliff was killed on September 3, 2013. It was almost 6 in the evening, and the incident happened in the 2600 block of Ann Arbor Avenue. Police believe that drugs were sold there, but more specific information on that was not available. However, they did say that the suspect was staying there at the time. Ratliff was 48 years old.

2. Raymond Rider was the man killed on September 14, 2013. A witness has apparently said that the suspect showed up and called Rider outside. There was then some argument over money, and the suspect shot and killed Raymond and left. This incident was in the 1700 block of Fernwood Avenue. It was about 4 in the morning. Rider was 60 years old.

In terms of evidence, Dallas police say this witness identified the teen suspect as the person who knocked on the door to call out Rider.

Suspect:

Jasper Okeith Adams Jr. is 18 years old and lives in Dallas.

Motive:

It doesn’t seem so clear what the motive was in the Ratliff alleged murder, except that police said Adams admitted it had something to do with illegal drugs. But if the witness is correct in the Rider homicide, it was an argument over money. Whether this was over drug money was not totally clear from the reports.

Criminal Charges:

Adams is charged with murder in both cases and a separate charge of burglary of a vehicle.

CNN Crime News Video: Erin Burnett Interview With Selma Nunes, Friend Of Washington Navy Yard Shooting Victim, Martin Bodrog

The following CNN crime news video is related to the Washington Navy Yard (D.C.) shooting, where 12 victims were killed in a shooting spree. Suspect Aaron Alexis was shot and killed by police. This video was added to the CNN website on September 17, 2013. It is from the Erin Burnett Out Front TV show.

In this clip, Erin interviewed Selma Nunes. She is the friend of Martin Bodrog, one of the 12 victims shot and killed in this Washington Navy Yard incident.

Martin Bodrog was 54. He was married, had 3 daughters, and taught Sunday School. Martin graduated from the Naval Academy in 1981.

Martin and Selma Nunes were both participants in the Eastern Fairfax Young Life Community. That’s how she knew him.

Selma said that Martin’s wife and daughters are in good spirits because they have a lot of people helping them. They have a strong church community, neighbors are helping them, and some people have even flown in to support them.

Nunes then talked about meeting Martin and his wife. They heard her give a speech about this Young Life program and how it changed her life. That motivated Bodrog and his wife to join the organization. She also said that Martin was excellent at everything he did. He acted with purpose and intention.

Selma was in shock to learn that Martin had been killed. She is still hoping it is not true. At the same time, she knows he is in a better place. And she is happy that his life was so fulfilled. He was a great man and cared about others.

CNN Crime News Video: Interview With Douglass And Jessica Gaarde, Husband and Daughter Of Washington Navy Yard Shooting Victim, Kathy Gaarde

The following CNN crime news video is related to the Washington Navy Yard (D.C.) shooting, where 12 victims were killed in a shooting spree. Suspect Aaron Alexis was shot and killed by police. This video was added to the CNN website on September 17, 2013. It is from Anderson Cooper’s TV show.

Anderson interviewed Douglass and Jessica Gaarde for this piece. They are the family members (husband and daughter) of Kathy Gaarde, one of the 12 victims shot and killed in this Washington Navy Yard incident.

Jessica Gaarde described her emotions as like a tsunami. There is a rush of emotion. It then recedes for a while, but something triggers the emotions and brings them back.

Douglass said he last heard from wife Kathy about 10 to 8 that morning. He eventually heard about the shooting that day but didn’t think that Kathy would be one of the victims because there are about 3000 people working at this Navy Yard facility.

But as the day wore on, he wasn’t hearing from her. Douglass went looking for her and couldn’t find her. He finally got a call from one of Kathy’s co-workers. That’s when he learned that she had been shot.

Douglass doesn’t know how you get through this because he hasn’t done it yet. Daughter Jessica was sitting there. He reminded her that her life goes on beyond this. But he doesn’t know where his life goes down because Kathy was his partner.

Douglass had been with Kathy for 43 years, since the time he was 20 years old.

CNN Crime News Video: Interview With Secretary Of The Navy Ray Mabus, About Washington Navy Yard Shooting And Suspect Aaron Alexis

The following CNN crime news video contains an interview with a Secretary Of The Navy, Ray Mabus. He is being asked by Wolf Blitzer about the Washington Navy Yard shooting and suspect Aaron Alexis. Alexis is the alleged shooter, and he was shot and killed by police after a shooting spree at the Navy Yard. At the time of this video, 12 victims have been confirmed killed. This video was added to the CNN website on September 16, 2013, which is the day the shooting took place.

This is a 10-minute interview, so I am only giving highlights. You can see the whole interview by playing the clip below.

Mabus confirmed that suspect Alexis is from Fort Worth, Texas. There is some confusion about how Alexis is associated with the Navy, and Mabus did not clearly explain it. Alexis was described as being a petty officer in the Navy’s Ready Reserve. But at the same time, he is apparently a contractor in aviation information technology systems.

Mabus says the number of victims killed is still not certain. Wolf says the latest he heard is that 12 victims were killed, and the shooter being killed by police makes it 13 in all. The Navy is counting heads to try to confirm.

There has been talk of a 2nd suspect. But as far as Mabus knows, it seems at this point in time that Alexis was the only shooter. But the investigation is ongoing. So this is not certain.
