When Angela Ihegboro first saw her newborn daughter, she was “speechless.”

“She’s a miracle baby,” the 35-year-old mother said yesterday. “But still, what on Earth happened here?”
What happened is that baby Nmachi is a blond, blue-eyed white baby born to two black Nigerian immigrant parents at a London hospital.

“The first thing I said was, ‘What the flip?’ ” said the father, Ben Ihegboro. “We both just sat there after the birth staring at her for ages — not saying anything.”

He quickly sought to dispel any speculation.

“Of course she is mine. My wife is true to me,” the 44-year-old customer service adviser said. “Even if she hadn’t been, the baby still wouldn’t look like that.”

Genetics experts don’t believe in miracles, but they didn’t have any simple answers to the mystery of baby Nmachi. Instead, they offered three theories:

She’s the result of a gene mutation unique to her. If that is the case, Nmachi would pass the gene to her children — and they, too, would likely be white.

She’s the product of long-dormant white genes, passed on to her by her parents, that might have been carried by their predecessors for generations without surfacing until now.
While doctors have said Nmachi is not an outright albino, or lacking in all pigment, they added that the child may have some kind of mutated version of the genetic condition — and that her skin could darken over time.

FORMER KCOH OWNER JESSE DUNN INDICTED!

Jesse Dunn, 56, of Houston, is set to appear in federal court following the return of an eight-count indictment alleging a fraud scheme in connection with a major disaster, announced U.S. Attorney Kenneth Magidson.

The indictment was returned Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2015. Dunn surrendered to federal authorities this morning and is set to make his initial appearance today before U.S. Magistrate Judge George Hanks at 10:00 a.m.

The eight-count indictment alleges one count of participating in a fraud scheme in connection with a major disaster, one count of making a false statement and six counts of false representations in connection with a major disaster.

Dunn was the president of Aldine Community Care Center Inc. (ACCC), a registered Texas non-profit corporation created on April 29, 2004, according to the indictment. He also served as the president or director of several other Texas non-profit corporations, such as Paraclete Church Ministries Inc.

According to the allegations, Dunn falsified numerous documents to the Small Business Administration (SBA) in order to receive disaster relief funds on behalf of ACCC from approximately September 2008 to December 2010.

Hurricane Ike made landfall on the Texas Gulf Coast on Sept. 13, 2008, at which time former President George W. Bush declared the counties in and around Houston a major disaster area under section 401 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act. Shortly thereafter, Dunn allegedly applied for a loan on two of his properties for disaster relief funds.

The indictment alleges Dunn submitted false invoices to the SBA which resulted in the disbursement of $1,300,800 that was to be used for the repair or replacement of real estate, inventory, supplies, machinery and equipment damaged during the declared disaster. However, Dunn allegedly used a significant portion of the proceeds for his own personal use.

He faces up to 30 years in federal prison and a possible $250,000 fine for each of the false representations charges and the fraud scheme in connection with a major disaster. If convicted of the false statement charge, he will also face up to five years in prison and another $250,000 fine. 

The investigation leading up to the arrest was conducted by the SBA and the FBI. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Suzanne Elmilady and Andrew Leuchtmann are prosecuting the case.

Charges have been filed against two suspects arrested in the death of a man at 8711 Town Park #2319 about 9:45 a.m. last Saturday (Jan. 17).

The suspects, Michael Gonzalez (H/m, 18) and Angel A. Mendoza (H/m, 21), are charged with capital murder in the 209th State District Court.  Photos of both suspects are attached to this news release.

The victim, Francisco Garcia, 74, of the above address, suffered blunt force trauma and strangulation.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.  

HPD Homicide Division Senior Police Officer J. Villareal and Officer V. McLean reported:

Houston Fire Department personnel responded to the apartment at the above address regarding a check on welfare call.  Mr. Garcia’s grandson stated Garcia did not show up for work and the family became concerned and drove to his apartment.  Family members found the front door to the apartment was locked, but the patio door was unlocked.  They went inside and found Garcia deceased on the floor near the kitchen area.  No signs of forced entry were found in the apartment.

Family members stated Garcia had recently purchased a gray, 2010 GMC truck, which is missing from the parking lot.  

Further investigation determined Garcia had been killed during a robbery.  The investigation further led to the identification of Gonzalez and Mendoza as suspects in this case.  Gonzalez was subsequently arrested without incident last Friday (Jan. 23) and Mendoza was also arrested without incident on Tuesday (Jan. 27).

 

$2 MILLION IN ILLEGAL HONEY SEIZED!

image

Special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), and officers with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) have seized since October illegally imported Chinese honey valued at $2.45 million destined for U.S. consumers.

The seized illicit honey that was abandoned or forfeited totals 660 barrels weighing 203,280 kilograms (448,156 lbs.). The containers’ shipping documents indicated the bulk honey originated in Latvia.

HSI and CBP have stepped up efforts regarding commercial fraud investigations that focus on U.S. economic, health and safety interests. Anti-dumping schemes create a divergent market that negatively affects legitimate businesses.

“Helping to ensure a safe food supply is an important component of border security,” said Brian M. Moskowitz, special agent in charge of HSI Houston. “HSI and our law enforcement partners are committed to working together on behalf of the American people to identify and remove potentially dangerous or adulterated products from store shelves to help keep our families safe. We also work to ensure that no one benefits from circumventing U.S. trade and import laws.”

In December 2001, the U.S. Commerce Department imposed anti-dumping duties after determining that Chinese-origin honey was being sold in the United States at less than fair-market value. The duties first imposed were as high as 221 percent of the declared value. Later these duties were assessed against the entered net weight, currently at $2.63 per net kilogram, in addition to a “honey assessment fee” of one cent per pound of all honey.

In 2008, federal authorities began investigating allegations of organizations on the “supply side” of the honey industry that were circumventing anti-dumping duties through illegal imports, including transshipment and mislabeling. In October 2002, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an import alert for honey containing the antibiotic Chloramphenicol, a broad spectrum antibiotic that is used to treat serious infections in humans, that is not approved for use in honey. Honey containing certain antibiotics is deemed “adulterated” within the meaning of federal food and drug safety laws.

HCSO robbery investigators are looking for a person of interest in connection to a December 30, 2014 attempted carjacking at an east Harris County gas station in which a customer pumping gas was wounded.

A photo of the person of interest is attached. Investigators would like to talk to the young man; he is not considered a suspect at this time.

The suspect approached the victim as he was fueling his red 1985 Toyota 4Runner and demanded his keys at gunpoint. He shot the victim once in the leg and that’s when the victim gave the suspect his keys.

The victim was transported to LBJ Hospital with a non-life threating gunshot wound to his leg.

The suspect is described as a black male, slender built, approximately 5’5” to 5’6” in height and in his early 20s. He was wearing a two-tone blue hoodie and dark pants.

NOT WHAT YOU EXPECT IN THE PARKING LOT OF A WALMART!

image

Around 7:15 p.m. Sunday, a Pct. 4 Deputy Constable and two Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a suspicious person call at the Walmart located at 23561 US 59 in Porter. Montgomery County dispatch warned deputies a white male wearing a camouflage jacket was seen donning body armor and circling his SUV, which he also moved several times. The dispatcher also provided the suspect’s parking location

image

As the Precinct 4 Deputy arrived, he saw the suspect. As he drove toward the suspect, the man opened his car door and began to reach into the vehicle. The MCSO deputies were also approaching and all three officers drew their weapons. The Precinct 4 Deputy told the suspect to place his hands on his face and walk backwards to him. The deputy then patted down the suspect, 27-year-old Christopher Longoria, and found a pistol in his front right pocket. He also removed a hard sunglasses case that was hanging on a lanyard the Longoria was wearing around his neck, and a pill bottle containing Hydrocodone from his shirt pocket. The sunglasses case contained a small digital scale and multiple small clear and colored zip locking plastic bags containing methamphetamine. The vehicle contained multiple boxes of ammunition; a mask; rifle bipods (used to steady when shooting); loose ammunition; and more small plastic bags with methamphetamine residue inside.

image

The Precinct 4 Deputy had dispatch check Longoria’s criminal history and learned he had two prior felony convictions. Soon after, the deputy noticed Longoria had a blood stain on his camouflage jacket and asked him about it. Longoria told him it was his own blood and that he’d been shot two days earlier. The deputy then called for medics, who checked Longoria and confirmed he had a gunshot wound. They said he would be alright, but might need medication.  Longoria was transported to the emergency room at Kingwood Hospital, where he was checked out and only needed a tetanus shot.

Longoria told deputies the narcotics in his possession were to keep him awake and make sure no one would harm him. He claimed he was shot at a gas station in Harris County and didn’t know the shooter or his motivation.

The evidence recovered included nine Hydrocodone, 52 empty blue small clear plastic bags; 92- 25MM ammunition (including 6 in the magazine in the pistol); a black digital scale; a green lanyard with sunglass case; 16 green small clear plastic bags containing 65.3 grams of methamphetamine; a black body armor plate carrier with no plates; a 25 automatic chrome pistol with full magazine; two LG smart phones; and .40 ammunition.
Christopher Longoria, 27, of Houston (unemployed) is charged with first-degree felony Manufacture / Delivery of a Controlled Substance (penalty group 1) more than 4 grams but less than 200 grams; third-degree felony Possession of a Controlled Substance (penalty group 3) more than 28 grams, but less than 200 grams; and third-degree felony Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by Felon.
