Gruesome new details revealed in death of Kentucky mom

first_imgRichmond Police Dept. (RICHMOND, Ky.) — Gruesome new details were revealed in court Monday surrounding the death of Kentucky mom Savannah Spurlock, whose remains were found behind a home in Garrard County months after she vanished. Spurlock’s body was wrapped in plastic trash bags when she was discovered in a 19-inch deep grave last week, a Kentucky State Police detective testified Monday, reported ABC Lexington affiliate WTVQ-TV.The testimony came as David Sparks, 23, one of the three men last seen with Spurlock in January, appeared in court. Sparks was arrested Thursday and charged with abuse of a corpse and tampering with physical evidence, authorities said.Sparks’ family owns the property where Spurlock’s body was found Wednesday night, Kentucky State Police spokesman Trooper Robert Purdy said at a news conference last week. Last week, one of Sparks’ relatives reported a “foul odor coming from his property and he became concerned,” according to the Commonwealth of Kentucky’s uniform citation for Sparks’ arrest. At the property, Spurlock’s remains were found underground, “concealed in an unnatural position,” the citation said.Spurlock’s feet were bound with tape, her body was folded over and a rug was behind her back, the detective testified Monday, according to WTVQ, adding that the rug came from Sparks’ bedroom. Blood in a closet in Sparks’ house matched Spurlock’s DNA, the detective said, per WTVQ. Spurlock, a 23-year-old mom of four, went missing in January after leaving a bar in Lexington with three men, according to authorities. Sparks allegedly told police that Spurlock came back to his house, fell asleep, and later woke him up to ask him where she was, the detective testified, according to WTVQ. Sparks allegedly said he gave her the address and went back to sleep, waking up later to find her gone.An official told ABC News in February they knew the three men took Spurlock to a home in the rural county, but not “when, how she left, or what happened to her after that.” The property where Spurlock was found had been searched several months ago, but no body was found then, Purdy said. All three men were interviewed, but not charged at the time. Sparks was a primary suspect in her disappearance, according to the citation. Authorities on Thursday did not discuss the possibility of additional charges, and Sparks was held without bond, WTVQ reported. A not guilty plea was entered for Sparks last week, according to CBS affiliate WKYT-TV.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

F-M, CBA football join ESM, J-D in Class A in 2020

first_imgWhat was announced earlier this year – the addition of Fayetteville-Manlius and Christian Brothers Academy to Class A football and the return of Jamesville-DeWitt – was confirmed by Thursday’s announcement of the Section III schedules for the 2020 season.F-M, CBA and J-D all join long-time member East Syracuse Minoa in the Class A ranks, while Bishop Grimes remains firmly entrenched in eight-man football for its fourth season.Among the many changes in Section III for the upcoming autumn was a longer regular season for large-school teams. Instead of seven games, Class AA, down to nine teams with the departures of F-M and CBA, will go with a nine-game schedule and just four teams will make the November playoffs. The realigned Class A includes 10 teams in two divisions. J-D, who is back after a season in the Developmental division (now Independent League), is in the American division with ESM and CBA, plus Auburn and Indian River.F-M, meanwhile, got put in the National division with Carthage, Central Square, Fulton and Whitesboro and will have just seven regular-season contests, the Hornets opening Sept. 11 against Auburn, the first of three straight home games with Central Square and Fulton to follow.A week earlier, on Sept. 4, ESM opens at Waverly and CBA takes on Rome Free Academy. The Spartans and Brothers will have eight regular-season games, but J-D will stick with seven and start its season a week later at South Jefferson.

Brightline Ends “Virgin Trains” Partnership, Drops Branding

first_imgOfficials with Brightline, which is majority owned by Fortress Investment Group, said that the parent company delivered a termination notice tied to its license agreement on July 29. “Virgin has disputed the validity of the termination notice,” according to the report.As part of the partnership, Virgin Trains was set to make a minority investment in Brightline.However, its own parent company has been experiencing financial difficulties.Earlier this week, Virgin Atlantic Airways filed for bankruptcy protection in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York, as part of a $1.5 billion restructuring plan, according to The Wall Street Journal.Brightline currently has three stations completed. It is also working on expanding in Miami-Dade County, and plans to operate a high-speed rail system between Las Vegas and Los Angeles.Until service stopped in March, 271,778 passengers rode Brightline this year, amounting to just $6.6 million in revenue, according to the report. Two companies that had joined together to improve transportation in Florida are now on different tracks.Brightline is set to stop using the “Virgin Trains” branding, after its parent company suddenly terminated a licensing agreement with Virgin Enterprises Limited late last month. The rail line announced the move Friday afternoon, and says that Virgin is now disputing the validity of the termination notice.The company will change its name back to Brightline Trains LLC following the expiration of the applicable notice period for the name changes under the senior load agreement, the company stated in its monthly report, which was released on Friday.According to the report, Brightline’s additional inline station in Boca Raton continues to progress in its construction, as does an expansion to Orlando.Brightline had been operating as Virgin Trains USA since late 2018, and was expected to complete the rebranding by this summer. It stopped service on March 25 and laid off 250 employees due to the pandemic.Ever wonder what it takes to build a high-speed rail system connecting Miami to Orlando? Take an inside look as we make our way to @MCO.
