Facing a challenging new year – J

We enter Rosh Hashanah 5778 with conflicting emotions…writes Isi Leibler.

Isi Leibler

Israel has never been in a stronger position, globally and domestically, thriving in every respect—economically, politically and militarily.

But we live in a world of chaos. North Korea threatens to unleash a global nuclear Armageddon and Europe, under siege from Islamic terrorists, many fresh from the killing fields of Syria, is now suffering terrorist attacks—the likes of which Israel has endured since its inception.

The Iranians and their surrogate, Hezbollah, have been emboldened and seek to move in on Israel’s northern frontiers, repeatedly proclaiming an imminent war that will destroy Israel. Prospects are nonexistent for achieving a genuine

Police have no answers in cold case

More than 11 years after a Brownsboro woman disappeared in the middle of the night, investigators have no new leads in the case.

“But until she is found in one form or another, it will continue to be an open investigation,” said Sgt. Shane McCarter of the Longview Police Department. “Det. Terry Davis is working that case. We will continue to wait for anything additional that will show up.”

On Aug. 2, 2006, Brandi Wells, 23, left her mother’s house in Tyler and made the 45-minute trip Longview, where she spent a couple of hours at nightclub Graham Central Station. Surveillance video shows her arriving alone and, presumably, leaving the same way.

“Brandi called several people for directions to the club that night,” Wells’ godmother, Michelle Cole, said. “And a bouncer there was one of the people who reported seeing her car on the side of the road several times with the door

Cold-case investigation yields arrest in Isle of Wight homicide – Daily …

Revisiting cold-case homicides led Isle of Wight County investigators to new information and an arrest in the death of a county native, Lt. Tommy Potter said.

This week, detectives arrested Trabion Tynes, 44, of Surry County and charged him with the 2004 slaying of his father, Johnnie Tynes Sr., 56. The victim’s youngest son — Trabion Tynes was 31 at the time — was indicted for murder and is being held without bond at Western Tidewater Regional Jail in Suffolk.

Trabion Tynes was charged in the murder once before, in February 2008. The charges were dropped in May 2008 after some witnesses were reinterviewed and several others could not be found.

The Isle of Wight County Sheriff’s Office reviewed two cold-case homicides this year — Johnnie Tynes’ death and the slaying of Carrie Singer. Both deaths took place in 2004 and had remained unsolved, Potter said.
