  • Derelict home of Satanist has been torched near shores of Loch Ness, Scotland
  • Aleister Crowley reportedly practised black magic there between 1899 and 1933
  • The main property has been destroyed in a fire ‘deliberately started by arsonists’

Video shows moment cops kill Connor Betts during Dayton massacre

Video captures the moment hero cops shoot and kill Connor Betts during his murderous rampage in Dayton, Ohio — with him collapsing just steps from the front door of a packed bar.

Surveillance footage shows dozens of joyful revelers, some hugging warmly, forced to suddenly flee for their lives as the masked 24-year-old starts firing his legally purchased AR-15-style rifle with magazines capable of holding at least 100 rounds of ammunition.

Betts can be seen wearing a bulletproof vest as he races toward a bar with his rifle raised.

But he collapses just steps from the front door as cops gun him down.

Another angle shows at least six officers rushing forward with guns drawn, with officials saying they were able to stop Betts just 30 seconds after the massacre started.

He was still able to kill nine people — including his own sister — and wound 27 more in his rampage just after 1 a.m. in Dayton’s popular nightlife district.

“We will never know how many lives were saved,” Gov. Mike DeWine said at a Sunday afternoon press conference. “The assailant was obviously very, very close to being able to kill dozens and dozens more people.”

Here’s the True Story Behind Lena Dunham’s Unnerving Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Character

Catherine Share, who inspired Gypsy in the film, is speaking out about Manson in the upcoming special “Manson: The Women.”

In Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, a fictionalized version of Charles Manson and his followers play a supporting role to the story of two fictional characters (Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt) in the entertainment industry. Quentin Tarantino took a lot of liberties with the story of the so-called Manson Family, some of whom ultimately carried out the murders of actress Sharon Tate and four others the night of August 8, 1969. But many of the characters in the movie are based on real people.

FBI says ‘Pink Lady Bandit,’ who robbed multiple banks along the East Coast, has been arrested

Police in Charlotte arrested 35-year-old Circe Baez and her suspected accomplice, 38-year-old Alexis Morales, on Sunday, the FBI said. (Pitt County Sheriff’s Office)

She robbed multiple banks in several states along the East Coast, armed with notes demanding money from tellers — and, the authorities say, a “distinctive pink handbag.”

And now, the FBI says, the woman whom the bureau nicknamed the “Pink Lady Bandit” has been captured.

The coming deepfakes threat to businesses

Oh, yes. Bwahahahahahahahaha!

In the first signs of a mounting threat, criminals are starting to use deepfakes — starting with AI-generated audio — to impersonate CEOs and steal millions from companies, which are largely unprepared to combat them.

Space invader: Asteroid closer than moon zooms past Earth


Earth got an unwelcome visitor Wednesday when an asteroid as massive as Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza zipped closer to us than the moon.

Actually, three asteroids flew within hailing distance of the planet Wednesday morning, but 2019 OD was the closest, crossing Earth’s orbit at a relatively scant 222,164 miles away — or about 17,000 miles closer than our moon, according to NASA.

At its greatest point, the asteroid is 393 feet wide and was hurtling through space at an extraordinary 43,000 mph.

The special aims to answer that very question.
