    The Clay County Sheriff’s Office and the State Attorney’s Office for the Fourth Judicial District have announced the first-ever murder charge for a drug dealer whose product led to an overdose death.  Trumaine “Lucky” Muller faces a first-degree murder charge for selling the fentanyl that led to the death of 18-year-old Ariell Brundige. Brundige was with Muller and two other men in Nov. 2016 when she overdosed.  The two other men, Tyler Hamilton and Christopher Williams, are facing manslaughter charges.  “The message for ‘Mr. Unlucky’ and the ‘unlucky two,’ who are associated with him… get the hell out of Clay County,” Sheriff Darryl Daniels said during an announcement on Tuesday.  Daniels says the Clay County Sheriff’s Office will continue to pursue homicide charges against drug dealers, noting that they are currently working to get there in several cases right now. 
  • British authorities on Tuesday identified the suicide bomber who blew himself up outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, as 22-year-old Salman Abedi. >> Read more trending news Greater Manchester police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins confirmed Abedi’s identity Tuesday, but declined to comment further, citing the need for the coroner to confirm the identity. Authorities said Abedi detonated a suicide bomb near one of the entrances to the Manchester Arena on Monday, just after an Ariana Grande concert wrapped up. The attack killed 22 people and injured 59 others, officials said. Here’s what we know: Abedi was a British man of Libyan origin who was born in 1994, Politico Europe reported. Abedi was known to British authorities, according to CBS News. The news organization did not elaborate on what brought Abedi to the attention of authorities. Abedi was born in Manchester to Libyan refugees, The Telegraph reported. He was the second youngest of four children. Police arrested one of Abedi's brothers in connection to the attack, according to Politico Europe. Greater Manchester police said they arrested one person in connection with Monday’s attack in south Manchester following the bombing. One other person was arrested at the Arndale Centre, although authorities said it was not immediately clear whether the person was connected with the bombing.
  • English actor Sir Roger Moore, best known for his portrayal of fictional secret agent James Bond, has died, family members said in a statement Tuesday morning. He was 89. >> Read more trending news Moore died Tuesday in Switzerland after 'a short but brave battle with cancer,' said his children, Deborah, Geoffrey and Christian, in a statement. 'The affection our father felt whenever he walked on to a stage or in front of a camera buoyed him hugely and kept him busy working into his 90th year, through to his last appearance in November 2016 on stage at London's Royal Festival Hall,' the statement said. 'The capacity crowd cheered him on and off stage, shaking the very foundations of the building just a short distance from where he was born.' Moore played James Bond in seven films between 1973 and 1985.
  • The entrance tunnel to the world’s largest seed storage facility built into the permafrost in a mountain in a remote area of the Arctic Circle in Norway has been flooded by melting permafrost.  >> Read more trending news The storage facility, which opened in 2008, was supposed to be an impregnable rock vault protecting the world’s food supply in the event of a global catastrophe, either man-made or natural, but The Guardian reports permafrost meltwater inundated the entrance to the tunnel leading to the seed vault after extremely warm winter temperatures in the Arctic. The Norwegian government owns the vault, and a government official admitted builders did not foresee the impact of climate change. “It was not in our plans to think that the permafrost would not be there and that it would experience extreme weather like that,” Hege Njaa Aschim told The Guardian. Luckily no seeds were lost. The water that breached the entrance to the tunnel froze and Hege said the ice has been removed. Officials are now trying to figure out new solutions to make the vault self-sufficient, something that’s necessary for it to serve its purpose. 
  • A 12-year-old boy is facing charges after police said he started a 10-acre brush fire while trying to record a video for YouTube of himself burning textbooks. The fire was reported near the Manchester Lakes Subdivision near Snicole Avenue and Durham Drive. Melboure police officers, West Melbourne police officers and Brevard County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the scene, where they said the fire was quickly encroaching on homes in the subdivision.  Interactive map: Burn bans in effect in Central Florida “I’m hosing my roof, I’m, hosing my neighbor’s roof. By the time I looked, it was on top of me,” said resident Eddie Abreu. “This can be replaced. Life cannot. Thank God everybody was good.” Firefighters from three agencies and the Florida Forest Service battled the blaze while law enforcement evacuated about 10 homes. Residents said the flames spread quickly. “It just popped up like it did. You know, it was very scary,” said resident Patrick Corrigan. Police said the child called 911 and said he was attempting to make a video of himself burning his textbooks. The fire spread quickly due to the dry conditions and the flames pushed into the yards of several nearby properties. No structures were damaged, but police said one nearby fence was burned.  Police filled out a juvenile referral and submitted it to the State Attorney’s Office asking to charge the boy with intentional burning of lands and criminal mischief, which are both felonies. His name was not released.
  • Security at the St. Augustine Amphiteatre was doubled following events from the summer 2016, including the Pulse nightclub attack.  And Community Relations Manager Diana Markovits says they feel the changes are adequate ahead of the next performance Friday night. “People will be more on edge possibly, for Friday’s show, but we feel and are very confident in the procedures we put in place last year....there’s not much of a need for even more because we already have twice the security staff here”, said Markovits.  Those changes included bag checks, metal detectors, and wanding of attendees.   Markovits says they do a security check before every event with the Sheriff's Office and contracted security crews, which they will certainly do before Friday’s Idina Minzel concert.“We encourage people to make sure to plan for a little extra time before getting into the venue because of the heightened security measures”, said Markovits.  They do not allow backpacks and other specific items, which are outlined on their website.  
  • An explosion was reported near Manchester Arena in the U.K. where an Ariana Grande concert was being held on Monday. Greater Manchester police said early Tuesday that at least 22 people were killed and 59 injured in the incident, which they believe was a terrorist attack conducted by a male suicide bomber. Children were among the dead. >> Read more trending news BBC News reported that police have warned people to avoid the area around the venue amid reports of an explosion around 10:35 p.m. local time. >> Related: Photos: Explosion, fatalities at Ariana Grande concert in England
  • He’s posing as police to scam locals out of hundreds of dollars at a time. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is searching for 47-year-old Timothy Liptrap. He allegedly called a local business on Saturday, April 29th, claiming to be “Officer Anderson” with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. He told the woman who answered that her boss had been arrested and his bail was $650.  The suspect told the woman that her boss’s brother-in-law is a police officer in St. Johns County/St. Augustine, and he had come up with half of the bond. The suspect then asked the victim if she could make up the rest.  The woman agreed to meet up with her boss’s “brother-in-law” to give him $340 for the bail. The suspect, still posing as “Officer Anderson”, told the victim to meet the “brother-in-law” around Philips and Sunbeam, because the “brother-in-law” was lost.  The meeting happened, where the “brother-in-law” told the victim that they would meet back up at the business where she works to repay her, after her boss was freed. “Officer Anderson” even called the woman back asking how everything had gone.  When the victim got back to the business, she called her boss and got voicemail. He later returned her call, but told the victim she had been home sleeping and had not been arrested. He further said his brother does not live anywhere near Jacksonville.  JSO says Liptrap is the suspect in this case, and he is responsible for other cases with the same scenario in various parts of town. Liptrap is wanted for three counts of grand theft and organized fraud.  Liptrap also goes by the aliases Colin Alexander, Jason Coulbourn, and Raymond Steiner. He has briwn hair and blue eyes, and is 5’9”, 190 pounds. Liptrap’s last known address is on Ortega Park Blvd, and he drives a gray, four door Dodge Charger with Florida tag HJD-U39.  If you have any information on Liptrap, or believe you have been victimized, you can contact JSO at 904-630-0500 ore JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. You can also submit an anonymous tip and be eligible for a possible reward by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
  • Actor Alec Baldwin’s career has seen a huge boost since he began portraying President Donald J. Trump last year on “Saturday Night Live,” and it appears that “SNL” fans are not the only ones who are watching.  Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria Baldwin, took to her Instagram page on Saturday, prior to “SNL’s” season finale, to post a short video of the couple’s 3-year-old daughter, Carmen, talking with her father about the upcoming show. >> Read more trending news “Carmen, what day does Daddy play Donald Trump?” Hilaria Baldwin asks from behind the camera.  “Sa-doo-day,” Carmen responds.  “Then we go like this with our hands,” Alec Baldwin says in his Trump voice, hands waving in front of him. “And we say, ‘Saturday. Saturday. Saturday. OK everybody, it’s Saturday.’” Carmen, her eyes and face scrunched up to match Baldwin’s, watches her father’s face and, waving her own little hands, repeats each thing he says in a gravelly voice. She giggles in his arms at the end as Baldwin dissolves into laughter.  More than 220,000 people have viewed the video since it was posted Saturday. Most of those who commented on it were blown away by the cuteness.  “Oh my Lord, I’m laughing out loud,” one viewer said. “It’s 12 am….woke my baby…lol.” “This gave me life,” another said. 
  • A flea market find in England 30 years ago has turned into the stuff dreams are made of. A woman paid the equivalent of $15 for a piece of costume jewelry three decades ago, or so she thought, but she liked the ring and wore it all the time, The Associated Press reported. >> Read more trending news It turns out the gem was the real deal, a 26.27 carat white diamond, according to Sotheby’s. The auction house is selling the ring next month as part of jewelry sale and expects the ring to sell for as much as $450,000. Not bad for a $15 investment. The buyer apparently had no idea the ring was real because 19th century diamonds were cut very differently from today. The cut did not show off the stone’s clarity or brilliance. The owners asked not to be identified.
