Colorado Springs, Colo. - A Fort Carson soldier is being hailed a hero for stepping up to help after he witnessed a bus crash along Interstate 25 Monday evening.
Nathaniel Barrett-Frieson was in the car with his wife and newborn baby when they came upon a Greyhound bus on top of a guardrail near South Academy.

When Barrett-Frieson got out of the car to make sure everyone was okay, he quickly realized a man, now identified as Edmundo Arellanes-Audelo, was allegedly threatening passengers with a knife.

"He ended up slipping through one of the broken windows on the bus and he came out and that's when I saw he had the knife and I told him to drop the knife and move over by some bushes to get some good distance between me and him," said Barrett-Frieson.

EVANSVILLE — A Mount Vernon, Ind., man who slashed two Downtown Evansville bar owners with a knife early Friday morning told police he was having problems because of his military service in Iraq, according to an Evansville Police Department report.

James E. Whitney, 32, was arrested on preliminary charges of aggravated battery with a knife, two counts, and intimidation with a weapon, two counts. He was being held without bond at the Vanderburgh County Jail.

Police said the incident happened about 2:25 a.m. at Hammerheads Bar, 317 Main St., when bar co-owner Christopher Boone tried to break up a verbal dispute between Whitney and another customer. Whitney then pulled out a knife and began slashing at Christopher Boone and co-owner Ryan Boone, who came over to help his brother, according to police. The Boones also reported that Whitney threatened to kill them.

"At the time of Paxton's death, Wolf had been AWOL from his Army unit for about a month, the third time he'd gone AWOL, charging documents say."
A 19-year-old soldier from Joint Base Lewis-McChord was charged Thursday with first-degree murder in connection with the random attack on a Kirkland woman with a butcher knife on Nov. 30.

DNA evidence, fingerprints, video surveillance footage, bloody clothing and a particular brand of knife helped police connect the slaying of 19-year-old Scarlett Paxton to Dakota Wolf, a soldier who was staying at a friend's house less than 1 ½ miles from Paxton's apartment building, according to the charges filed by King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office.

Wolf was arrested and turned over to the Army for being absent without leave (AWOL) within 24 hours of Paxton's slaying, charging papers say. A $2 million arrest warrant was issued Thursday for Wolf, who was to be transferred from base corrections facility to the King County Jail, said Dan Donohoe, spokesman for Prosecutor Dan Satterberg.

"It appears that this violent, brutal, and protracted attack was unprovoked and random," charging papers say. "It further appears that the defendant, previously having armed himself with a large chef's knife, initially attacked the victim in one location then chased her to her apartment complex where he completed his attack."

Tucson:Help police find killer of former pastor and marine

Tucson's Most Wanted: Help police find killer of former pastor and marine

This is a crime a lot people are taking very personally, because this man hurt nobody and he was a friend to just about every person he met.

He's a former pastor and a retired Lt. Colonel with the United States Marines. But now Leroy VanVerth is gone. And police need your help finding the person responsible.

Says Tucson Police Detective Bill Hanson, "A case where you've got an innocent victim, who is in the wrong place at the wrong time.

That man is 81-year-old Leroy VanVerth. And this is where he was victimized around 7:35 Sunday night. VanVerth and his wife stopped by their Winnebago parked near Mountain and Roger when somebody approached them on foot.

His wife was actually inside the RV at the time and could hear the man asking for directions to the bus stop.

"She doesn't hear anything after that, so she thinks the person's left," Det. Hanson says. "Short time after that she hears a scuffle, goes outside and sees her husband on the ground and male standing over him with something in his hand."

VanVerth and his wife had just returned from Oregon and were getting a few things out of their RV when this unidentified stranger walked into their lives and changed everything for this married couple of 62 years.

"It looks like maybe he's on the ground and he's kicking at the guy--and that's how he's slashed" Det. Hanson says.

Two deep gashes across both legs. It's unclear why he was cut or what the suspect was looking for. What is clear is that the wounds were very serious. And at 81 years of age with a strained heart, such a loss of blood was just too much.

Police are asking you to call 88-CRIME or 911 if you have any information related to this case.
