His hands were tied and his body bore the marks of torture and strangulation.“As there are so far no clues as to the motive, the Karachi police must not rule out the possibility that Razvi’s murder was linked to his work as a journalist,” Reporters Without Borders said, offering its condolences to his family and friends.“Attacks on journalists are common in Karachi. Last year they included Syed Shahryar Asim’s attempted murder and Wali Khan Babar’s murder. And they usually go unpunished. The authorities must to everything possible to end the cycle of impunity.”Razvi’s body was discovered by a friend, the sculptor Shahid Rassam, in Rassam’s studio in an apartment in a residential neighbourhood of Karachi. The cord with which he was apparently strangled was found by the police in the apartment.Rassam said Razvi has asked him for the key to his studio. Thereafter he had not been reachable by telephone, either in his office or on his mobile. Razvi’s wife reported his disappearance on the evening of 18 April.The police have opened an investigation. None of the armed groups active in the region have claimed responsibility for his death and his family said he had “no enemies.” In an article paying tribute to Razvi, one of his colleagues, Omar R. Qureshi, said he was “fearless” and wrote “sharp, incisive editorials.”Aged 47, Razvi had been a journalist for more than 20 years and had worked as an editor for the Dawn media group in Lahore before transferring to Karachi, where he had written articles “that required exemplary courage,” a colleague, Eshwar Sundaresan, wrote in the newspaper’s blog.Razvi also wrote a political biography of former President Pervez Musharraf (“Musharraf: the years in power”) that was published in 2009.He is the second journalist to be killed in Pakistan this year, following Mukarram Khan Atif on 17 January. Pakistan has been the world’s deadliest country for media personnel for the past two years, with 10 journalists killed in connection with their work in 2011.

A number of borrowers are unaware of this discrepancy and many are “those of color. It seems like this, like many other things, is having a disproportionate impact on persons of color, which causes me a good deal of consternation,” said Green.The Congressman indicated he had evidence of this failure to comply stemming from a request by one of his constituents who brought it to the attention of his office.Another stickler: the forbearance agreement has been perceived by some to be an honors system; that is, it could be determined whether borrowers are afforded the full 180 days, initially with the opportunity to exempt another 180 days, said Green, who noted this was never intended. Instead, he explained, “it was my intent that the borrowers would acquire the 180 days and then could opt to have another 180 days,” otherwise compelling borrowers to consider filing a lawsuit; litigation, hire a lawyer, and taking the matter to court. “I’m very concerned about this,” said Green.Meantime, ranking member Andy Barr, a Democratic Congressman from Kentucky, said COVID-19’s sparked, among other things, a government-imposed shutdown of the economy; disrupted the lives and livelihoods of citizens across the country; compelled businesses to shutter; and precipitated skyrocketing unemployment. Furthermore, workers who remained employed face uncertain prospects for their long-term stability, putting families at risk of losing their homes.Barr said the CARES Act created forbearance options for struggling homeowners. “At the peak, approximately 4.7 million families were in forbearance and many more would have undoubtedly lost their homes or struggled to make payments.” The CARES Act made it easier for homeowners to pay their mortgages, for families to stay in their homes and for small businesses “to build a bridge to the other side of the crisis,” continued Barr.“We’ve seen the number of mortgages in forbearance decrease since the peak, declining a full 13% since May,” he added. “However, we’re not yet out of the woods; there still are millions of homeowners facing hardship and requiring additional assistance.”The CARES Act (Pub. L. No. 116-136; the “Act”) was enacted on March 27, 2020, to provide financial assistance and other types of relief as the negative economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic set in across the country, according to DS News.Abetting the efforts of Americans struggling to make mortgage payments due to the economic slowdown caused by the pandemic are addressed in the consumer finance provisions under TITLE IV of the Act. Covered by these provisions are “Federally backed mortgage loans,” defined under the Act as any loan which is secured by a first or subordinate lien on residential real property designed principally for the occupancy of from one-to-four families that is:Insured by the Federal Housing Administration or under the National Housing Act;Guaranteed or insured by the Department of Veterans Affairs or the Department of Agriculture; orPurchased or securitized by the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation or the Federal National Mortgage Association.Under Title IV of the Act the consumer finance provisions directly address helping Americans struggling to make mortgage payments due to the economic slowdown caused by the pandemic. helping Americans struggling to make mortgage payments due to the economic slowdown caused by the pandemic.

DNA links Nevada prisoner to multiple 1984 cold case murders, including 3 family members, authorities say
State of Nevada Department of Corrections(CARSON CITY, Nev.) — Authorities have used DNA to link four cold case murders from 1984 in Colorado to a man already serving time for attempted murder and deadly assault charges in Nevada.Prosecutors from Arphahoe and Jefferson Counties as well as the Colorado Bureau of Investigation Director John Camper announced Friday that investigators used DNA matching to connect four brutal murders in the state — including a home invasion that left three family members dead — to 57-year-old Alexander Christoper Ewing, who is currently in the custody of the Nevada Department of Corrections.Authorities were able to obtain DNA from Ewing after a change to a Nevada state law that previously prohibited it, Camper said in a news conference.On Jan. 10, 1984, a man entered the home of 50-year-old Patricia Louise Smith in Lakewood, Colorado, and sexually assaulted and bludgeoned her to death, The Denver Post reported.Six days later, a man armed with a hammer and a knife entered the Aurora home of Bruce and Debra Bennett and bludgeoned the entire family, killing three members, according to The Post.The killer also sliced Bruce Bennett’s neck, raped Debra Bennett and the couple’s 7-year-old daughter, Melissa Bennett, The Post reported. The couple’s youngest daughter, 3-year-old Vanessa, was beaten in the head and face but survived. Bruce Bennett’s mother, Connie Bennett, stumbled upon the gruesome scene the next day and found her granddaughter alive, according to The Post.The family had just celebrated Melissa Bennett’s birthday, The Post reported.DNA evidence from the scene of the Bennett case was first uploaded into a database in 2001, Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler said. Almost a decade later, in 2010, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation was able to develop a DNA profile from Smith’s murder and found that it matched the DNA in the Bennett case, Brauchler said.A few weeks ago, the state of Nevada uploaded Ewing’s DNA to the FBI’s national database, and a match with the Smith and Bennett cases came the next day, Camper said.Smith faces three counts of felony murder and two counts of violent crime in Jefferson County in connection with Smith’s death, Jefferson County District Attorney Pete Weir said Friday. Formal charges are expected to be filed next week.“Justice has been delayed, but justice is not going to be denied,” Weir said, adding that it’s possible that Ewing could face the death penalty in Smith’s murder.Former Arapahoe County District Attorney Jim Peters had obtained an arrest warrant for a John Doe in the Bennetts’ murder cases based on the DNA, charging the unknown killer with 18 counts related to the massacre, including six counts of first-degree murder, Brauchler said. It is unclear when authorities will reach a resolution in the Bennett case, Brauchler said.The prosecutors will file paperwork asking Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper to extradite Ewing from Nevada.The state of Colorado is urging all states to pass laws to obtain DNA from incarcerated inmates to help solve cold cases, authorities said.“Every state has unsolved cases,” Brauchler said. “… Do this for the victims that have gaping holes of crimes that have not been solved.”Ewing is already serving a 40-year prison term in Nevada for two counts of attempted murder and two counts of assault with a daily weapon, according to The Post.Several months after the Colorado murders, Ewing entered a home in Kingman, Arizona, through an open door and attacked a man nearly to death with a 20-pound boulder, The Post reported.Ewing was later arrested by Kingman police on charges of attempted murder, and on Aug. 9, 1984, while being transferred for a trial hearing, he escaped the jail van when it stopped at a gas station for a restroom break, according to The Post.Ewing then ran into a K-Mart and changed clothes and later that night entered a home in Henderson, Nevada, armed with an ax handle and attacked the couple living there, The Post reported.Ewing was eventually captured two days later after a massive helicopter and foot search, according to The Post. He was convicted by the 8th District Court in Las Vegas in 1985 and is being housed at the Northern Nevada Correctional Center in Carson City, prison records show.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Construction work will cause detours on Bay Avenue. The Cape May County Municipal Utilities Authority is replacing and rehabilitating the force mains that carry wastewater to the treatment plant on the bay at 45th Street. The work will be done on 31st Street from Haven Avenue to Bay Avenue and Bay Avenue from 31st Street to Eighth Street. Work for Jan. 20 to 24:As of the end of the day Friday, the contractor’s south crew will have installed PVC pipe, backfilled and temporarily paved close to 21st Street. The contractor’s north crew will have completed the same work close to 18th Street. Traffic:For the weekend, Bay Avenue will be open to two lanes of traffic, with lane shifts around stored materials and equipment. On Monday, Bay Avenue will be closed from 24th to 14th streets. Intermediate School Activity:It is expected that by the end of the week the north crew will have progressed to a point south of the Intermediate School’s bus port entrance. When that happens, the contractor will be able to barricade off Bay Avenue immediately north of the work zone. This will allow buses to drive south on Bay Avenue and enter the port by turning left, and then exit the port by turning right onto Bay Avenue and drive north. The target date for this is Monday, Jan. 27. Until that happens, all of the traffic patterns and safeguards that are now in place will continue. See full project update
