Missing Person Amanda Wuchick of Mansfield, OH –

As part of an ongoing search, the Mansfield Division of Police is asking for the public’s help to locate Amanda Wuchick, AKA: Amanda Rosado.

Amanda left from Mansfield and was last seen in the area of Florian Avenue, Cleveland, around Sept 20, according to Mansfield police.

Amanda is 30 years old, 5 feet, 3 inches tall and 135 pounds. She does not have a vehicle listed in her name. It is not known how she got to the City of Cleveland, according to Mansfield police.
Anyone with information is urged to call The Mansfield Division of Police 419-522-1234 or Det. Rich Miller of the Major Crimes Unit 419-755-9758 with any information concerning the current whereabouts of Amanda K Wuchick-Rosado.


Private Detective: Persons of Interest Questioned in EKU Threat –

President Michael Benson confirms to LEX 18 that police have questioned persons of interest in the EKU threat that resulted in classes being cancelled.

EKU Police along with other law enforcement agencies are continuing their investigation and provide increased patrols. Although several individuals have been spoken with, there has still been no arrest.

Officials at Eastern Kentucky University cancelled classes Wednesday, October 7th through Friday, October 9th following the threat found inside a campus bathroom Monday morning. The upcoming EKU football game against Tennessee Tech changed venues and will be played in Georgetown.


This response is all because on the morning of October 5, 2015, the Eastern Kentucky University Police Department issued a Public Safety Alert after receiving a report about graffiti with threatening language. The graffiti, found in a bathroom in the Powell Building, states, “KILL ALL BY 10/8/15 THIS BU OOP.”

Essential services are still open.

According to the Eastern Progress, a spokesperson for the University says that while there is no evidence of an imminent danger, there has been an escalation in the threat from social media. EKU Police officials are also currently looking into all leads of threatening notes slipped into the dorm rooms of females, but so far they haven’t be able to substantiate those reports.

EKU President Michael Benson released a statement reading in part, “Our primary goals in assessing this situation are limiting any safety risks and avoiding disruption to learning and teaching. While we are confident the responding team of law enforcement agencies has kept a watchful eye over our community and is diligently investigating the threat, it has become clear this incident continues to be unsettling to a number of our students, faculty and staff.”

EKU will be on fall break until Wednesday, October 14, 2015.

The university is offering a $10,000 reward for the identification leading to the arrest and conviction of the responsible person or persons.

Fraud Investigation New Microchip-enabled Credit Cards May Still Be Vulnerable –

By October 2015, many U.S. banks will have replaced millions of traditional credit cards, which rely on data stored on magnetic strips, with new credit cards containing a microchip known as an EMV chip. While EMV cards offer enhanced security, the FBI is warning law enforcement, merchants, and the general public that these cards can still be targeted by fraudsters.


What is an EMV credit card? EMV Chip
The small gold chip found in many credit cards is most often referred to as an EMV chip. Cards containing this chip are known as EMV cards, as well as “chip-and-signature,” “chip-and-pin,” or “smart” cards. The name “EMV” refers to the three originators of chip-enabled cards: Europay, MasterCard, and Visa. EMV chips are now the global standard for credit card security. Unlike traditional credit cards that store data on a magnetic strip, EMV cards store card data in tiny integrated circuits and are authenticated when the cardholder inputs a PIN into a PoS terminal.

With traditional credit cards, the magnetic strip on the back of the card contains data and personal information about the cardholder. This information is used to authenticate the card at the point of sale (PoS), before the purchase is authorized. While most EMV cards still retain the traditional magnetic strip and the cardholder’s signature on the back of the card, they offer the additional enhancement of the microchip embedded into the card. This allows merchants to verify the card’s authenticity by the cardholder’s personal identification number (PIN), which is known only to the cardholder and the issuing financial institution. In addition, EMV cards transmit transaction data between the merchant and the issuing bank with a special code that is unique to each individual transaction. This provides the cardholder greater security and makes the EMV card less vulnerable to hacking while the data is transmitted from the PoS to the issuing bank.


Although EMV cards will provide greater security than traditional magnetic strip cards, they are still vulnerable to fraud. EMV cards can be counterfeited using stolen card data obtained from the black market. Additionally, the data on the magnetic strip of an EMV card can still be stolen if the PoS terminal is infected with data-capturing malware. Further, the EMV chip will likely not stop stolen or counterfeit credit cards from being used for online or telephone purchases where the card is not physically seen by the merchant and where the EMV chip is not used to transmit transaction data.


Consumers should closely safeguard the security of their EMV cards. This includes being vigilant in handling, signing, and activating a card as soon as it arrives in the mail, reviewing credit card statements for irregularities, and promptly reporting lost or stolen credit cards to the issuing bank. When using the EMV card at a PoS terminal, consumers should use the PIN, instead of a signature, to verify the transaction. This fully utilizes the security features built within the EMV card. Consumers should also shield the keypad from bystanders when entering their card PIN.

Merchants are encouraged to require consumers to enter their PIN for each transaction, in order to verify their identity. If a consumer uses a signature, merchants should ask to also see a government-issued photo identification card to verify the cardholder’s identity.

The FBI encourages merchants to handle the EMV card and its data with the same security precautions they use for standard credit cards. Merchants handling sales over the telephone or via the Internet are encouraged to adopt additional security measures to ensure the authenticity of cards used for transactions. At a minimum, merchants should use secure servers and payment links for all Internet transactions with credit cards, and information should be encrypted, if possible, to avert hackers from compromising card information provided by consumers. Credit card information taken over the telephone should be encrypted, and any written copies of the card information should be securely disposed.

If you believe you have been a victim of credit card fraud, reach out to your local law enforcement or FBI field office, and file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) at www.IC3.gov.

Wrongful Death Laurel Co. Man To Be Sentenced in Death of Wife

Virginia Chumbley was asleep when she was shot to death in her home. The killer left the handgun in the bedroom and cried as he called 911.

“I just shot my wife,” Chris Chumbley told the Laurel County emergency operator. “Give me the police. I’m under arrest.”

He later told authorities the killing was an act of mercy: His wife of two decades, who everyone knew as Jenny, had asked to die because her cancer had spread.


Her body was swollen and her pain was immense. She had to use a wheelchair when she wasn’t bed-ridden and Chumbley has said he was honoring her wish.

Chumbley, 50, was charged with murder, but last month, prosecutors reached a deal that would allow him to plead guilty to manslaughter. He faces 15 years in prison when he is sentenced by a judge Thursday.

The August 2013 shooting renewed the debate over mercy killings and the right to die in a nation where five states — Oregon, Vermont, Washington, Montana and most recently California — have laws that allow doctors to prescribe life-ending drugs.

In Jenny Chumbley’s case, her husband and prosecutors disagreed over how long she had to live. He said she only had weeks, his lawyer said. Prosecutors believe it was longer than that.

Chumbley’s brother, Tony Chumbley, said Chris and Jenny had watched Chris’ mother slowly die of lung cancer years before, and she told Chris she never wanted her suffering dragged out like that.

“I think Chris done it out of love for her,” said Tony Chumbley, who also lives in Laurel County, nestled in Kentucky’s Appalachian hills. “I think he would not have done it if she didn’t ask him to. If my wife got that sick and she asked me, I would hope I was man enough to do what Chris did.”

On the 911 call the night of the shooting, Chris Chumbley told the operator that his wife has cancer “all over” and had a doctor’s appointment the next day.

During the 16-minute call, he asked the operator if he could go see his wife’s body one last time.

The operator said no, and he complied.

Jenny Chumbley’s mother, Rita Smith, told media after a 2013 hearing that Jenny wanted chemotherapy and did not want to die. A phone number for Smith could not be located.

Laurel County Commonwealth’s Attorney Jackie Steele said he spoke to people on Jenny Chumbley’s side of the family about the plea agreement and thinks they understand it.

“I can’t say they agree with it or like it,” Steele said.

There have been other recent cases of alleged mercy killings. Last year, 88-year-old William Dresser shot his wife of 68 years in her Nevada hospital bed after she had begged to die.

Dresser was later cleared after prosecutors determined it wasn’t malicious and Dresser was too old and sick to face prison.

A California case that’s still pending involves Jerry Canfield, who placed roses around his ailing wife of 37 years before shooting her in the head. The 72-year-old Canfield told police the two had agreed he would end her life if an illness left her in constant pain. He is charged with murder.

Right-to-die advocates say families should have more options.

“It is a very, very hard thing to watch somebody you love suffer,” said Alexa Fraser, whose father fatally shot himself last year after battling Parkinson’s disease.

Fraser works with a Denver-based group called Compassion And Choices and is advocating for a right-to-die law in her home state of Maryland.

Her father, Alex, didn’t want to live in a nursing home, but he was falling frequently and was worried he would end up there.

“He reached the point where he decided he had to end his life, and that went very badly,” she said.

First he tried overdosing on painkillers, and then slitting his wrists. Fraser and her husband found his body after he decided to use a gun.

“I do not want anyone to go through what my father went through,” she said.

Identity Theft Oregon Woman Found Hiding in Porta-Potty Arrested –

A woman wanted on identity theft charges has been arrested in Oregon after a construction worker lifted the lid of a portable toilet to find her hiding inside.

The Register-Guard reports that 27-year-old Treasure Dawn Shockey, who had two warrants for her arrest, ran when police in Eugene tried to talk to her Saturday morning.

Police say a witness told them she saw the woman run through her yard and climb a fence onto the property of the Eugene Swim and Tennis Club.


About 20 minutes later, a construction worker told police he had lifted the lid of a porta-potty and been surprised to see her inside.

Police say Shockey left the toilet and they arrested her.

Missing Person Search for Man Who Walked Away From Nursing Home in Cynthiana

Harrison County Search and Rescue is searching for a man who walked away from his nursing home.

Officials say that Paul Jordan walked away from the Shady Lawn Rest Home in Cynthiana around dinner time, Wednesday.

They say this is the third or fourth time he has done this. The last time Jordan walked away from the nursing home, he told authorities he hated the place and wanted to leave.


Harrison Co. Search & Rescue was contacted by Shady Lawn around 12:30 a.m., so officials say Jordan got a pretty good head start. Search and Rescue have expanded their search area due to the large gap in time between walking away from the home and the time the incident was reported. They searched for Jordan until 3 a.m. and will continue their search Thursday.

Jordan was last seen wearing a red and black plaid jacket, blue jeans and a ball cap.

Missing Person Eduardo Ramirez-Llamas of Albuquerque

Albuquerque police issued a missing persons alert Wednesday for 22-year-old Eduardo Ramirez-Llamas two weeks after he was first reported missing Sept. 22.

Ramirez-Llamas told his wife he was going to the gym at 10 a.m. on Sept. 21. His family reported him missing the next day after he failed to return text messages and phone calls.


His car was found in the parking lot of his apartment complex on Osuna NE. His gym membership card, cellphone and a broken bottle were found on the ground outside of his vehicle, according to police.

Ramirez-Llamas is described as 6’5″ and 235 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

He faces multiple felony counts stemming from a Sept. 7 arrest on kidnapping, armed robbery, aggravated assault and aggravated burglary charges.

If you have information on his whereabouts, contact the APD Missing Person Unit at 505-924-6095.
