Mother says toy machine at pizza shop dispensed medication

A mother in New Hampshire said a machine designed to give children a treat was more like a pill dispenser at one pizza shop.

Courtney Jones was with her 7-year-old daughter Allyson when they put a quarter into the toy machine at Rochester House of Pizza Friday night, and received a container of pills.

“I put all three quarters in the first two were toys and then the third one when it first came out I thought it was candy and I didn't let her have it and I said hold on let me look at his and I opened it up and I realized it was medication,” Jones said.

Police said they are investigating how the pills, which appear to be blood pressure medication, got into the machine.

“There was one capsule and then there was three pills and one of the pills was broken in half,” Jones said.

Jones said her daughter knew not to ingest the pills, but she worries other kids may not know.

“She says I wouldn't want that that's not candy. She's seven she's old enough to know but had she been younger maybe she wouldn't have known,” Jones said.

Rochester House of Pizza owners said an outside company fills the machine, and that company is unsure how the pills turned up. Jones hopes it never happens again.

“I hope that another child doesn't get one of those capsules filled with medication and accidentally eat them,” Jones said.

That machine has been removed from the shop, but Jones said she has been told the supplier of the toys and treats buys them in bulk from out of state.

That's why she's afraid they'll end up somewhere else, too.

WFXT reached out to that supplier Monday night but could not make contact.

Report: Most pickup trucks have poor headlights

A new report released Tuesday says most late model pickup trucks have poor headlights.

The study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety looked at the way the headlights on 11 pickup trucks performed as they drove straight and on curves.  Seven of the 11 they tested were rated as "poor."

>> Read more trending stories  

Researchers say poorly designed headlights on pickup trucks can cause glare or temporarily blind other drivers.

They evaluated how the light illuminated stretches of road and found the Honda Ridgeline was the only pickup to get a “good” rating, while the Chevy Colorado was at the bottom of their list for clear visibility.

The IIHS also factored in truck's high beams, LED lights and reflectors.

The group says automakers are already trying to make headlight improvements.

Earlier this year, they tested midsize cars and SUVs and found most those vehicles had poorly rated headlights as well.

Sisters under federal investigation after admitting to burying father's body in back yard

Two Lake County sisters are under federal investigation after officials said they were suspected of collecting their dead father's Social Security checks for years.

Deputies said the pair confessed that their father died five years ago, and they panicked and buried him in the back yard of his Eustis home on Parkcrest Drive.

A case file against Susan Kort and Sarah Kort for improper disposal of a deceased body has been sent to the State Attorney’s Office. 

>> Read more trending stories  

The body of 94-year-old Merlin Kort was found in a shallow grave in September, officials said.

Many neighbors, including Jamie Osborne, said they were “very shocked.”

Investigators said many relatives had not talked to Kort in a while and were concerned.

"The sisters stated that he moved up north, and that he was staying with relatives," said Fred Jones of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said they later got a tip that Kort's body was buried on the property, which was fenced and covered with trees.

Deputies said they believe Kort’s body had been there between four and five years.

"I never knew he lived back there," said Osborne.

Deputies said the sisters claimed he died of natural causes, but instead of calling to report it "they panicked and they didn't know what to do and so they buried his body in the back yard." 

But no one knew Kort was dead. Mail continued to be delivered to Kort's home, which included his Social Security checks.

The U.S. Inspector General's Office has not returned WFTV’s call for comment.

"Yeah, and to be your father, you don't do that. You just don't treat your father like that," said Osborne.

Deputies said the sisters said Kort had health issues.

Investigators said they did not find anything that leads them to suspect foul play.

Dog abandoned for being fat has a new home

A 12-year-old dog named Leila, who someone left at the Cobb County, Georgia, animal shelter after her weight made her “inconvenient,” has found a new home.

At 61 pounds, it’s been hard for Leila to get up and down steps, so her past owners gave her up. Cobb County animal shelter volunteers posted a message about Leila’s heartbreaking plight the other day.

“Leila’s previous ‘family’ left her at Cobb County Animal Control on Oct. 20 because they said it had become inconvenient since Leila had become so heavy she can no longer easily go up and down the stairs to take herself outside to potty.

Leila is so very sweet and looks like a beautiful young pup. You’d never know by looking at her that she has 12 years of life behind her.

We hope that someone sees what a beauty this girl is and snaps her up. Exercise and diet could help this beauty slim down. Her previous humans said she is GOOD WITH KIDS. Please share Leila to help her get out of the shelter!”

Apparently someone got the message. A subsequent post reported the happy news that Leila now has a new home.

7 things to know now: 4 killed at amusement park; Obamacare going up; keeping babies safe

Here's a roundup of news trending across the nation and world today.

What to know now:

1. Four killed at park: A day at an Australian amusement park turned deadly when four people were killed on a ride that malfunctioned. Two men and two women died on the Thunder River Rapids ride. Authorities are trying to determine why two people were pitched from one of its rafts and two others either trapped under the water or actually in the ride. The accident took place at Dreamworld, a park in Queensland.  

2. Man jumps hold kids: A man holding his two children jumped from a New Jersey interstate overpass Monday. The man was found dead near where he jumped, but the children survived the incident that happened near the Wanaque River in the northern part of the state.  

3. Fogle’s ex sues: The former wife of Jared Fogle, who starred in commercials for the Subway sandwich chain, is suing the company saying executives knew her husband was a pedophile but failed to alert authorities. Katie McLaughlin divorced Fogle after he pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography and having sex with minors. "A responsible corporation would take immediate action when hearing of this behavior, even if it was only allegations," the lawsuit reads.  

4. Obamacare going up: The price of premiums for the Affordable Care Act are set to rise nearly 25 percent next year, according to a government report. Premiums for the plan known as Obamacare are increasing at the same time large insurers have announced they are leaving the program because of massive losses from customers who are sicker than anticipated. 

5. Keeping infants safe: The American Academy of Pediatrics says you can protect children from sudden infant death syndrome by keeping them close during the night. The AAP is recommending that parents keep their sleeping babies in the same room with them at night, preferably for a full year, but at least until the baby is 6 months old. They warn, however, that infants should never sleep in the same bed as adults or other children. About 3,500 babies die of SIDS each year in the United States. 

And one more

A Texas family is looking for help to find their daughter, a college student, who disappeared two weeks ago. Zuzu Verk, 22, was last seen out with friends and her boyfriend on Oct. 12. Verk’s father says her boyfriend has refused to help authorities in the search.

This is what football can do to a child's brain after just one season

The results of a new study may have some parents rethinking whether they allow their children to play football.

>> Watch the news report here

Three million children in the U.S. play in tackle football programs. While many doctors and scientists have taken a look at the impact of concussions, new research by Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center studied the impact of less-serious blows to the head that are common during games.

The study included 25 players between the ages of 8 and 13 and was centered on a youth program in Winston-Salem, N.C. Each boy was outfitted with a helmet that measured the severity and frequency of head blows.

“This is important, particularly for children, because their brains are undergoing such rapid change, particularly in the age category from maybe 9 to 18. And we just don’t know a lot of about it,” Dr. Chris Whitlow, a lead researcher, told NBC News.

Researchers say their findings indicated that even at this young age, the boys were receiving pretty hard hits.

The doctors then performed MRIs on the players and determined there were some changes in the brain’s white matter, the tissue that connects the gray matter of the brain.

“We have detected some changes in the white matter,” Whitlow said. “And the importance of those changes is that the more exposure you have to head impacts, the more change you have.”

Young players who did not have concussions were also found to have been impacted by repeated hits. Brain changes were found even after a single season of playing the sport.

>> Read more trending stories

So far, doctors are not cautioning parents against letting their children play football since there are still some unclear areas following the study. Doctors don’t know if these changes will continue as the boys play football. They also don’t know what long-term impact the repeated blows to the head will have on the players.

Still, some parents say the sport is worth the risk — for now — because of the joy it brings to their children. Football also encourages their kids to stay on top of their grades.

Kindra Ritzie-Worthy has two sons who play football. She says they take their footballs everywhere they go. One even sleeps with his ball.

“Worth the risk?” she told NBC. “I say absolutely.”

The study is published in the journal Radiology.

Security cameras at KIPP DC Spring Academy in Washington, D.C., captured the moment that a parent apparently punched a student in the hallway, WJLA reported. Now police are investigating the incident.

John Mclean, 7, says he was punched in the stomach. Video shows the parent leaving the building after punching John and looking back at him for a few seconds. John can been seen holding his stomach while bent over on ground, obviously in pain.

“It made my stomach real painful,” John told WJLA.

Lena Mclean, John’s mother, wants answers for what happened to her son. She told the station that she and the parent have had interactions before, and she doesn’t know why he would want to harm John.

“You don’t bully a child. You didn’t torment a child. I wouldn’t do that to you. I wouldn’t do that to none of your kids,” Lena Mclean told WJLA. “I’ll feel much better when he is locked up.”

A police report has been filed, but the parent involved has yet to be arrested, something Lena wants to happen.

The school sent parents a letter about the incident that said, “The health and safety of our students, teachers, and staff remains our number one priority, and we will continue to work closely with the police to ensure that students and staff are safe at school.”

Lena Mclean requested the video from the school.

Mom of conjoined twins holds son alone for first time after separation surgery

Until this weekend, mom Nicole McDonald had never held her twin boys in the 13 months since their arrival. On Friday, she was finally able to hold her son, Jadon, following his separation from his brother, Anias.

"For over 13 months, I've dreamed of this moment... I wrapped my arms around him and rocked. One of the most profound moments of my life." #JadonAndAniasPosted by CNN on Monday, October 24, 2016

Jadon and Anias were born conjoined at the tops of their heads. Because of their condition, Nicole was never able to hold her sons.

He whimpered for almost the whole two hours I held him because he had just been extubated, had the area under his scalp washed out and had been weaned from the good pain meds.”

Before the surgery, if Nicole wanted to comfort Jadon, she would have to wrap her body around him in his hospital bed. Now, she can hold him in her arms.

Face-biting slaying suspect Austin Harrouff gave interview to 'Dr. Phil' from hospital before arrest

Before Austin Harrouff was arrested and charged with the fatal stabbings and infamous face-biting of a Martin County, Florida, couple in their home in August, he gave a bedside interview with the “Dr. Phil” TV show.

The sheriff’s office said there’s no legal way it could have prohibited the interview, but the son of the man killed by Harrouff told The Post in an exclusive interview that the sheriff could have arrested the Jupiter teenager sooner.

>> Read more trending stories 

In a segment called “The frat boy dubbed ‘cannibal killer’ breaks his silence from his hospital bed,” the show programmers say they have “an exclusive interview, right before his arrest” that is set to air Friday. 

“Harrouff speaks out for the first time from his hospital bed,” the preview reads. “What does he say caused him to go from popular student to an accused killer?”

There was neither a promotional video to tease the story nor photos on the show’s website. The show’s staff only provided a blurb for the upcoming program and made no other comment

Martin County Sheriff William Snyder told The Post on Monday night that his department was aware of the phone interview, conducted a few days before Harrouff’s arrest Oct. 3, but there was nothing it could legally have done to stop it even if he was arrested. He said his office can’t bar anyone from speaking with the media who wishes to do so.

“We were surprised,” Snyder said of the interview.

John Stevens IV, the son of John Stevens, whom Harrouff is charged with killing, said if the sheriff’s office had arrested him sooner, there may have not even been the opportunity to give an interview.

“It may be his right to give a phone interview, but if the process would have been followed like any other double murderer (and he was arrested immediately), he may have not been so inclined to give an interview from jail,” Stevens told The Post.

On Aug. 15, the Martin County Sheriff’s Office says, Harrouff beat Stevens, 59, and Michelle Mishcon, 53 to death at their home on Southeast Kokomo Lane after he stormed out of a Duffy’s Sports Grill in Jupiter where he was with his father. A neighbor tried to intervene and was injured in the process, according to authorities.

Investigators say it’s unclear if Harrouff was under the influence of drugs, but when authorities arrived, he was biting Stevens’ face. While in the hospital, his organs began to fail, and the hospital staff said it believes he drank some cleaning fluids from inside the garage where he killed the couple.

Austin Harrouff is being held at the Martin County Jail on two counts of second-degree murder with a weapon, one count of attempted first-degree murder with a weapon, and one count of burglary of a dwelling with assault or battery. The state plans to pursue first-degree murder charges, which must be presented to a grand jury.

John Stevens IV said even before the 19-year-old Harrouff was taken to the hospital after the slayings, he had the benefit of white privilege on his side. He said if anyone else in any other place had done this type of crime, they would have been arrested right away.

“I’ve never seen a black or minority suspect with such an inherent sympathetic spin (as Harrouff is getting),” he said. “They make him seem as sympathetic as possible because he’s privileged and white, and it’s really, really sad.”

He said when Austin Harrouff’s father, Wade, went on “Dr. Phil” several weeks ago, it was another ploy for more sympathy. In a segment that aired Sept. 7, Harrouff told Dr. Phil that his son suffered from undiagnosed mental illness and apologized for his son’s actions.

When The Post attempted to get comment from Wade Harrouff on Monday evening, he said could not speak at this time.

Stevens said much of the coverage by news outlets has focused on how Harrouff was a good student at Suncoast High School and Florida State and popular, painting him as a victim. What people forget, Stevens said, is two people were killed and others hurt Aug. 15.

“We all live in a time when we’re cynical about media and law enforcement,” he said. “My reaction is general disgust.”

“I really hope people can use their brains and see that (Harrouff) is a monster,” Stevens said.

Hairless hamster gets a tiny sweater crocheted by Oregon humane worker

A hairless hamster named Silky received a special gift from an employee at the Oregon Humane Society.

The employee decided to “crochet (Silky) a tiny sweater to help her stay warm.”

>> Read more trending stories 

Silky, who is around 1 year old, was born hairless with short, curly whiskers and soft, sensitive skin, the Humane Society writes.

“Silky is hairless due to a genetic mutation,” Diana Gabaldon, an OHS staffer, said in a release on the society’s website. “While she isn’t fluffy like a normal hamster, she is just as cuddly and playful as any other hamster. She does need to be kept in a heated environment, especially during the winter, and have a higher-protein diet to keep her warm.”

Humane officials say that when Animal Care Technician Selene Mejia saw Silky huddled in the corner of her cage, she felt bad for the little hamster and decided she had to do something about it, crocheting Silky’s sweater, “sized just right to help her stay cozy.”

Silky mostly goes "au naturale" in her warm, clean habitat; she wears the sweater for special occasions.

Report: Tourist dies after riding Disney's Star Tours

A 68-year-old Tennessee tourist died after riding Star Tours at Disney's Hollywood Studios, authorities said.

The September death of the Memphis, Tennessee, man was recorded in a list of serious ride-related injuries and illnesses that the major theme parks provide the state of Florida on a quarterly basis.

>> Read more trending stories 

According to a report released Monday by the Florida Department of Agriculture, the man had a pre-existing heart condition, and the cause of death was listed as hypertensive cardiovascular disease, with contributing factors including obesity.

The latest report included five other incidents of adults complaining of dizziness, stomach and chest pain and back pain on various rides at Disney and Universal.

While parks and their rides are not subject to state inspections, park officials are required to report ride-related injuries and illnesses that send someone to the hospital for at least 24 hours.

Disney topped the list of the number of riders hurt on local rides over the summer.

A rider on Space Mountain reported having stomach and chest pain following the ride. A 53-year-old woman had a seizure on the Journey of the Little Mermaid, the report stated.

At Universal Studios, a man had back pain after riding Rip-Ride Rockit and a woman was dizzy after the Dragon Challenge.

Universal said in a statement about its Harry Potter ride:

"Tens of millions of our guests have happily and safely experienced this attraction since it opened. Because this attraction is so incredibly popular, more people ride it than many other attractions – including people who would not normally try to experience a dynamic ride such as this one. Both of those factors may impact the numbers we report. But please know we take the safety of our guests very seriously. We monitor all our attractions and the experiences our guests have on them.  And we post signage at the front of each attraction advising guests to consider the dynamic nature of the ride before trying to experience it."

The Associated Press contributed to this report. 

Man charged with abuse of corpse after police find body in bag under his bed

A man was charged with abuse of a corpse after officers found a body in a garbage bag under his bed in Hopewell Township, Pennsylvannia, according to a criminal complaint obtained by WPXI.

>> Read more trending stories 

The complaint said someone called police, saying a decomposing body was in Donald Teaford’s apartment on Mill Street. Authorities obtained a search warrant for the apartment after discovering two windows open with a “heavy smell of perfume” emitting from the inside and numerous garbage bags outside the rental, according to the complaint.

Officers searching the apartment pulled up the bedspread on Teaford’s bed and found a garbage bag with a boot hanging out. Upon further inspection, a man’s body was found wrapped in garbage bags with a knife next to it, the complaint said. DVD players and a purse were used to cover the body from plain view, the police paperwork stated.

The person who tipped off police claimed the body was there for three weeks and that Teaford had been sleeping on the bed with the body underneath it, according to the complaint. Teaford also took heroin with the victim, according to the tipster. 

According to the criminal complaint, officers determined Teaford had to lift the bed frame, box spring and mattress prior to laying the body on the floor.

The criminal complaint further stated that Teaford’s girlfriend died of a drug overdose in the very same bed that officers found the body under. 

Authorities wrote in the complaint that Teaford is known to many in the area because he panhandles, claiming he is a homeless veteran.

Teaford was arrested Friday and taken to jail. His bail was set at $100,000  

The victim’s official cause of death is pending the results of an autopsy and toxicology tests, the Beaver County district attorney said. He also identified the victim as Justin Cogan, 34.

Justin Bieber walks off stage when he's booed for asking fans to stop screaming

The roar of the crowd is often something that's celebrated by pop singers, but that was not the case for Justin Bieber.

During the Manchester, England, stop of his Purpose Tour the singer had enough of his fan's loud cheering.

>> Read more trending stories

A fan posted video on Twitter showing the moment Bieber expressed frustration to his fans about their cheering during breaks between songs.

"The screaming during these breaks has got to stop," Bieber said. "Please and thank you."

The cheers turn into boos and Bieber seems to be over it. He drops his mic and walks off stage and fans begin chanting for him to come back.

The same fan also tweeted a video of the singer explaining why he walked off stage.

"I traveled across the whole world to come here," Bieber said. "I dedicate my life to this. I dedicate my life to performing. I dedicate my life to trying to bring smiles to people's faces and I feel like people just aren't giving me the same respect and that just kind of hurts me a little bit, so that's all."

Bieber also said he appreciated his fans for coming to the show.

This is not the first time Bieber has called out his fans for screaming and cheering.

He walked off stage during a concert in Norway in October 2015 when fans spilled water on stage and tried to yank a towel from Bieber when he tried to wipe it up.

During an acoustic performance, last year in Spain, he asked that his fans clap on beat.

"If you're going to clap, at least clap on beat," he said.

Here's hoping Bieber and his Beliebers can find a happy medium.
