Stepdad of missing 4-year-old girl ‘confesses to killing her by accident’

The stepfather of a four-year-old girl who went missing one month ago has confessed to accidentally killing her.

The suspect, Derion Vence allegedly made his confession on Friday to Quanell X, a community activist who was representing the victim, Maleah Davis' mother. He confessed he killed Maleah before dumping her body in Arkansas.

Quanell X also revealed that a plane will fly from Houston, Texas, where Maleah vanished, to the spot in Arkansas where Vence allegedly said he dumped her body.

'What happened to Maleah was an accident. He says it was an accident. And he confessed to me where he dumped her body.

'He was very specific with the amount of distance and time. When I was able to leave and look it up on my phone, he was to the point on the distance and time.

He said that he pulled over in Arkansas, got out of the car, walked to the side of the road, and dumped the body off the road,' Quanell told The Houston Chronicle.

He said he had met with the directorate of Equusearch, which works with the police in missing persons cases, to find her.

'I think it's true enough that I have an airplane lined up at 3 p.m. to fly a detective, and several officers to go up there and go ahead and start the search.'

The alleged confession comes nearly a month after Vence reported Maleah missing on May 4.

The little girl was last seen alive following Vence into their home in Houston on April 30. He reported her missing on May 4, and said she had been abducted by three men the day before while he drove to pick up Maleah's mother Brittany Bowens' from George Bush Intercontinental Airport.

Bowens claims to have been attending her father’s funeral in Massachusetts around the time her daughter vanished.

Vence claimed he was knocked out by Maleah’s abductors, and woke up 24 hours later in a field. He also claimed that his family’s silver Nissan Maxima was stolen.

Police later found traces of blood linked to Maleah in his home, sparking fears he killed and dismembered the youngster. The forensic evidence was used to arrest Vence and hold him in jail on suspicion of tampering with a corpse.

Quanell X, also speculated that Vence may have killed Maleah to get revenge on Bowens for ending their engagement.

Sir Philip Green charged with misdemeanour assault in US over claims he 'vigorously spanked and groped' a Pilates instructor

British Billionaire and Topshop tycoon, Sir Philip Green,67, has been charged with assault in the US after a pilates instructor alleged he repeatedly touched her inappropriately.

Prosecutors in Arizona on Friday announced that the Billionaire would be charged with four misdemeanour assault counts over allegations made by 37-year-old Katie Surridge.

“These are class three misdemeanours. Each count has a potential sentence of up to 30 days in the Pima county jail, a fine of not more than $500, and up to one year of probation,” deputy county attorney Deakin said.

Ms. Surridge claimed he spanked and grabbed her backside during classes in the Canyon Ranch luxury resort in Tucson in 2016 and 2018.

The mother-of-three said in a police interview that the 'creepy old man' had 'vigorously' slapped her bottom up to 10 times in January 2016.

Ms. Surridge said she was worried about frustrating a “high roller” at the resort following the 2016 incident, but decided to speak to management who said they spoke to Green and reassured her it would not happen again.

But Surridge told police that Green assaulted her a second time in January 2018.

“This time, instead of slapping my butt, he puts his hands, like, he wraps his hands around my waist and then grabs my butt cheek and just puts his hand there and just holds it there as he’s hugging me,” she said.

He went on to make uncomfortable comments and pat her exposed stomach as she demonstrated an exercise, Surridge alleged.

“And then the session ended and I immediately went upstairs to [management’s] office and I was in tears and I said: ‘He was told never to touch me again and here he is touching me again’,” Surridge told police.

Kimberly Khoury, a homeowner at the resort, who police described as an independent witness also gave an account of what she claims to have seen in 2016.

'I see his hand go reach out and, like, pat her buttocks,' Ms Khoury told the officer. 'And then pat it again and like, grab her buttocks. And then she kind of moved, like, startled a little bit. And took like a step away. And then he removed his hand and brought it back.

'I can't tell you what we talked about because I was so focused on what was happening with his ... uh, his octopus-like hand.'

They continued talking before he grabbed Ms. Surridge's bottom again, Ms Khoury alleged.

She continued: 'And like, slaps, you know, spanks it, whatever, so like, taps it. And then grabs again and this happened in the course of like a minute-and-a-half, or two minutes.

'He did that three or four times. It was pretty clear that, to me, that she wasn't welcoming the behaviour.'

A spokesman for Sir Philip, issued by Arcadia, said: 'Sir Philip strenuously denies these allegations and is disappointed that the charges have been filed in his absence and they are minor categories of misdemeanour in the United States.

'Sir Philip is not personally required to attend before the court at the forthcoming hearing and will be represented by his lawyer.

'Contrary to previous suggestions in the media there is no allegation of any sexual assault or misconduct made by the prosecution.'

Deputy county attorney Lauren Deakin said this evening: 'Philip Green has been formally charged with four misdemeanour assault counts (ARS 13-1203 (A) (3) knowingly touching another person with the intent to injure, insult, or provoke).

'These are class three misdemeanours. Each count has a potential sentence of up to 30 days in the Pima County jail, a fine of not more than 500 dollars, and up to one year of probation.'

The case will return to court in Tucson on 19 June, according to the court filings.

British socialite Claus Von Bulow, who was convicted for the attempted murder of his wife, dies at 92

Claus Von Bülow, a popular Danish-British socialite, has died at the age of 92.

Claus was convicted for the attempted murder of his wife Sunny von Bülow in 1979. He was charged with deliberately injecting insulin into her, sending her into an irreversible coma.

The trial was one of the most sensational of the 20th century. Prosecutors claimed Claus wanted to get rid of his wife so he could inherit her fortune and continue his relationship with his mistress, a soap opera actress.

After being convicted, Claus was sentenced to 30 years in prison, and then was famously represented on appeal by Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz. He successfully argued items were illegally seized and the notes from key witness interviews had not been turned over to the defense.

Claus was then retried and found not guilty in 1985. His conviction was overturned and he was ultimately acquitted of trying to murder his wife. He then moved to Europe where he died at the age of 92.

Claus' acquittal shocked the world at the time and inspired the movie "Reversal of Fortune," which chronicles the murder of Sunny von Bülow and professor Alan Dershowitz's appeal. Jeremy Irons, who played Claus, won an Oscar for Best Actor.

Popular Brazilian singer, Gabriel Diniz dies in plane crash while on his way to his girlfriend's birthday party (Photos)

Popular Brazilian singer, Gabriel Diniz, who is one of Brazil’s most successful current pop stars, has been killed in a plane crash, aged 28.

The plane took off from the city of Salvador in Bahia state on Monday 27 May, bound for Maceió in the east coast, but it crashed due to bad weather in the town of Porto do Mato, Estância, in the state of Sergipe, Brazil. Diniz was killed along with two pilots, Linaldo Xavier, and Abraão Farias.

The star had reportedly been travelling to meet his girlfriend to celebrate her birthday.

'It is with great pain that we can confirm the death of Gabriel Diniz and the plane's crew,' Gabriel's representatives confirmed to Us Magazine.

Brazilian media reported that the Piper PA-28 Cherokee was deemed airworthy, but was not licensed for air taxi trips such as the one Diniz was apparently making. It was instead only meant to be used for flight training.

But Diniz’s father slammed the report and said Diniz had booked and paid for the flight, and had not caught a free ride as some of his friends had claimed.

Brazil’s National Civil Aviation Authority (ANAC) is reported to be investigating the crash, and has suspended the Aeroclube de Alagoas which operated the aircraft.

Diniz built up his music career while also working as an electrical engineer. He grew a huge following in Brazil, particularly in the wake of his 2018 hit, Jenifer, which has 237m views on YouTube.

His final Instagram post was following a concert in Feira de Santana, Brazil. "Always a joy to return to Feira de Santana and be greeted with such joy and with so much positive energy. Thank you for the kindness…until next time God willing" he wrote.

Here are photos from the scene with the wreckage of the small plane on display.
