Conway Crime Video: Councilman’s Wife, Kelly Mae DeDominicis, Arrested On Oxycodone Drug Charges

The wife of a councilman in Conway, Pennsylvania, has been arrested on drug charges. She allegedly sold oxycodone.

Police say an informant purchased oxycodone several times from Kelly Mae DeDominicis. She is 47. The sales were made at the suspect’s house, which is on Second Avenue.

The suspect is the wife of Councilman Mark DeDominicis.

There is no indication at present that the councilman was involved. Calls to get rid of him are completely silly at this point. That is just at attempt at painting someone guilty by association. WTAE shouldn’t even report such nonsense, as there is no way a councilman is going to get booted for a family member’s alleged criminal activities.

Crime Video News: Thomas Lee Everett Paris Shot And Killed In Ellwood City, Pennsylvania

Victim: Thomas Lee Everett Paris – 43 years old

Suspect: Jeffrey C. Sack Jr. – 22 years old

City, State: Ellwood City, Pennsylvania

Address: Route 65 in Wayne Township

Date: Sunday, July 20, 2014

Time: 10:20 in the evening

It’s pretty much impossible to follow TribLive.com’s report on this alleged crime. It’s one of the most poorly written articles I have seen in a while. So I can’t report on much of the facts and don’t recommend reading that article for details. However, it was clearly states that Paris was shot in a shootout between him, Rashund Alteric Smith, and Monica Jackson.

How Sack has ended up getting charged is not very clear from the public reports. He is charged with aggravated assault. But no one has actually been charged yet with shooting and killing Paris. Police at least need some ballistics testing and then to pin down who was using the weapon used to hit Paris before they can reasonably charge someone. Then, there may be self-defense issues.

Crime Video News: John Mapp Shot And Killed By Brother In West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Victim: John Mapp, 40 years old

Shooter: Mapp’s brother

City, State: West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Address: 5800 block of Filbert Street

Date: Sunday, July 20, 2014

Time: 3:40 in the morning

John Mapp’s 34-year-old brother is a paraplegic. He shot and killed Mapp. The police were told by someone (it isn’t clear who) that the brother shot John to keep John from physically harming their 38-year-old sister. In other words, the shooter is saying he was acting in defense of others (the sister).

The paraplegic brother has not been criminally charged at this time. But the investigation is not over. the case probably comes down to whether the brother reasonably believed that the sister was under immediate threat of serious bodily injury or death. The history of violence in the family and John Mapp’s history of violence is relevant to this.
