Woman fools Fla. police by signing gibberish during serial killer press conference – WXIA

TAMPA, Fla. – Hearing impaired people tuning in to a news conference last week about the arrest of a suspected serial killer in southeast Seminole Heights got a message of gibberish as they watched an American Sign Language interpreter.

Derlyn Roberts, 53, stood to Chief Brian Dugan’s right during the Nov. 28 news conference. She was supposed to be providing sign-language interpretation.

In fact, after hearing from people who complained her signing was inaccurate, officials are still trying to figure out what she was doing there.

People who relied on Roberts for important updates on the Seminole Heights killings, say her translation was garbled and sometimes completely inaccurate.

Serial killer who chained woman in container says there are more victims

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — A South Carolina man convicted of killing seven people says he has more victims who have not been discovered.

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reports that, in an eight-page letter, Todd Kohlhepp wrote that he tried to tell investigators and informed the FBI, but he said “it was blown off.” He also wrote, “At this point, I really don’t see reason to give numbers or locations.”

Don Wood, chief division counsel with the FBI’s Columbia office, said the agency has a pending investigation, but wouldn’t comment specifically on what the FBI is doing.

The 46-year-old Kohlhepp pleaded guilty in May to seven counts of murder for killings that took place over more than a decade, all as he ran a real estate business. He was sentenced to life in

Forget walking a mile in her shoes, what about running 26.2? Woman, 27, sets a world record after doing a whole …

Spending a day tottering on high heels in the office sounds like a spa treatment compared to what one young woman put her feet through this week.

Irene Sewell, 27, from Blacksburg, Virginia completed the Seven Bridges Marathon in Chattanooga, Tennessee on Sunday — an impressive feat in its own right, as most people spend months training to run those 26.2 miles in a comfy pair of sneakers.

Irene, however, turned up in a pair of three-inch stiletto heels, and stayed in heels until she crossed the finish line less than seven and a half hours later.

Before the vicious attack, Delia had already endured horrific violence at his hands, including a week-long ordeal when Sweeney tied her to a bed in her Camden home as he repeatedly raped her and threatened to cut out her tongue with a kitchen knife if she screamed.

During her torture, he
