MISSOURI SHOOTING:  Nine people are dead, including the gunman, in a shooting in southeastern Missouri. There are four confirmed crime scenes in Tyrone, two more possible in Shannon County.

According to the Texas County Sheriff’s Department, a juvenile female called the department around 10:15 p.m. and said she heard gunshots in her home. After hearing the gunshots, the girl fled to a neighbor’s home and notified police.

When police arrived to the home they found two people dead of gunshot wounds. Upon further investigation, five other bodies were found and one injured person throughout three different homes in Tyrone, Missouri.

The body of an elderly woman was also found in one of the homes, but she appears to have died due to natural causes, police say.

Sergeant Jeff Kinder says the 36-year-old suspect was found dead in Shannon County early Friday from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Source: KMOV

Nick Gordon Seeks Temporary Restraining Order Against Roswell PD

NICK GORDON LAWSUIT:  The AJC is reporting that Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is seeking a temporary restraining order to bar Roswell police from carrying out a “search warrant involving a security camera.” Um, so if he wants to dispel any suspicion about his involvement in something untoward to Bobbi Kristina, wouldn’t he give the police everything they want?

The filing also seeks to stop the company Nest Labs from complying with the warrant, issued on or about Feb. 12, documents show.

“The Search Warrant violates the Fourth Amendment in that it is overly broad and seeks private data ‘without limitation,’ and fails to narrowly limit the scope of the data sought by date or other characteristics,” court documents say.

On February 12, 2015, Nest notified via email its customer, Nicholas Gordon …that it had received ‘legal process’ for data and documents related to the account and that it intended to comply.”

The issue is an unjust breach of privacy, the documents say:

“Privacy, in the context of stored information includes the right to control how stored information is communicated and prevent its abuse. lt is more than just confidentiality of data. The Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution implicitly governs in its very core that Americans have a reasonable expectation of privacy which inherently extends to the right to control their own data and access thereto.”

Documents go on to say “there is an insufficient link between the crime alleged in the Search Warrant, specifically ‘possession of a controlled substance.’” Source: AJC

UPDATE: Nick Gordon’s lawyers, Joe Habachy and Randall Kessler, issued a statement saying, “To protect his client’s interests, Mr Habachy filed the Temporary Restraining Order. “However, Mr Gordon has since elected to dismiss the claim in an effort to help Roswell PD speed up their investigation.”

The Foundation for Lost Boys and Girls of Sudan filed a lawsuit accusing the producers behind The Good Lie, which stars Reese Witherspoon, of using their “life stories but reneged on an agreement to pay them,” Variety reports.

The Foundation for Lost Boys and Girls of Sudan and 54 refugees in a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Atlanta, contend that they gave interviews as the project was being developed and were promised that that the foundation would be the sole beneficiary of any fundraising efforts associated with the movie.

[…]

The suit says that during a videotaped meeting on April 15, 2013 with Molly Smith of Black Label Media, one of the production companies behind the movie, she said, “The most important thing that was said here today was you asked a question, ‘Do you feel you should be compensated for your story?’ And the answer I can say, because it’s my company and my studio, is absolutely.”
