Man Beat With A Bat And Stabbed To Death After Threesome Goes Horribly Left

The victim, 20-year-old Manos Ikonomidis, was stabbed three times and beat over the head with a bat.

A 20-year-old man was beat with a bat and stabbed to death after a threesome in Brooklyn went awry. The romp in the hay Monday (June 19) spiraled out of control when one of the participants began filming the tryst without the permission of the only woman involved.

According to reports, Manos Ikonomidis, an unidentified woman and 21-year-old man named Jack Doherty were all entangled in the steamy sexual affair at Doherty's apartment. Police questioned Doherty but say they don't consider him a suspect in Ikonomidis' murder.

Things went sour when one of the men began filming and the woman became angry. Doherty reportedly drove the woman back to her Staten Island home, leaving Ikonomidis in the apartment alone. A resident inside the building said the woman contacted her boyfriend--who wasn't involved in the threesome--and alleged she had been raped. Police say so far there's no evidence the threesome wasn't consensual.

Ikonomidis’ girlfriend-who was also not involved in the threesome-received an anonymous Instagram message which read "“your boyfriend f****d up and will be taken care of.”

About the time Doherty returned to the apartment, three men also arrived. Surveillance footage shows two white men and one black man chasing Ikonomidis. He was beaten over the head and stabbed three times in the chest and back. Ikonomidis later collapsed outside of a building at 16th St. and Seventh Ave. in the early morning hours on Monday.

Bleeding profusely, Iknonmidis knocked on Joy Liguori’s apartment door leaving a bloody handprint. Liguori's relative Lynne Moeser ignored Ikonomidis' request to call 911, but the effort proved fruitless as Ikonomidis was pronounced dead at New York Methodist Hospital at 4:33 a.m.

Incoming Attorney General Letitia James Planning Investigation Of Donald Trump And Co.

Incoming New York Attorney General Letitia James is planning a sweeping investigation of Donald Trump, his family and anyone associated with the president.

While speaking with NBC News, James said she will use every corner of the law to look at any illegal activity committed.

“We will use every area of the law to investigate President Trump and his business transactions and that of his family as well," James said.

Specifically, James will investigate any illegal activity associated with the president's New York real-estate holdings, including the 2016 meeting with a Russian official at Trump Tower and any government subsidies he's received.

"We want to investigate anyone in his orbit who has, in fact, violated the law,” the Democratic attorney general said.

After James announced her forthcoming investigation, Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen will face the music for lying to Congress and violating campaign laws. Cohen faces four years in prison.

Oscar Grant's Family Advocates To Have Fruitvale Station Named After Him

Nearly 10 years to the day of his passing, Oscar Grant III's family is aiming to build a tangible legacy in his honor. A request to rename Fruitvale Station in Oakland, Calif., the location where Grant was fatally shot by a police officer on Jan. 1, 2009, has been made. At 22, Grant was killed by a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) officer while he was handcuffed and face down on the train's platform. The officers were responding to a fight on a crowded train and apprehended Grant and other riders.

“It would be an atonement, it would be part of BART saying yes this happened here, we vow that it won’t happen again and we vow to work with the communities and ensure that all people are treated equally,” Wanda Johnson, Grant's mother, said.

According to KGO-TV, BART officials have declared the family's plea unlikely, not based upon the reason of the request, but rather that BART policy requires all stations' names to align with its geographical position. The Oakland transit system will instead install a mural honoring the late father. Currently, in the planning stages, the family also requested a side street at Fruitvale be named after their fallen family member.

Killed in the blink of an eye, Grant's case made him one of the many faces of police brutality. Cellphone cameras caught officers handcuff an unarmed Grant, who was later shot in the back. He died shortly after in a California hospital.

Study Shows Gun Violence Cuts African Americans Life Expectancy By Four Years Or More

Gun violence has seeped into the American culture sinking its claws into everyday life. With 53,492 shooting occurring in 2018, the result was more than 13,700 gun-related deaths, reported by the Gun Violence Archive.  A new study led by a professor at Boston University has found that the life expectancy of African-Americans has lowered by more than 4-years due to gun violence.

Based on federal data collected between 2000 and 2016, the research concluded black Americans died more frequently due to homicide among younger ages, although white American gun deaths are linked more so toward suicide amid older folks.

Published Dec. 4 in the BMJ Evidence-Based Medicine journal."Our study using cumulative data from 2000 to 2016 demonstrates a total firearm life expectancy loss of 905.2 days, which is nine times greater than observed in 2000, indicating increasing life expectancy loss by year," wrote Bindu Kalesan, the lead author of the investigation.

Furthering the discussion surrounding firearm injury, Kalesan inferred that gun-related injury causes American's to "lose substantial years." A common misconception surrounding shooting victims, only 30% of people struck by bullets die. However, the trauma endured is now linked to the shortened life expectancy.

One of the studies calculated in the 2000s, "concluded that shootings reduced the average American lifespan by about 100 days, with a significant gap between black and white men: Black men lost 361.5 days, while white men lost 150.7 days," wrote Nick Wing, a journalist at Huffington Post.

Two hundred and eleven days in difference, this study is a clear indication of the racial gap plaguing people-of-color in relation to the inherent violence suffered through life. Gun policy, a clear stain on the American fabric, has become a growing issue, claiming lives by the tens-of-thousands with no clear sign of slowing down. The research illustrates the growing issues within the black community, because not only are we being attacked from all sides, we engage in friendly fire.
