Serial killer who took the lives of 10 women executed by lethal injection in Florida

Long, is scheduled to be executed Thursday, May 23, 2019, for killing 10 women during eight months in 1984 that terrorized the Tampa Bay area. (Photo: AP)STARKE, Fla. – A serial killer who terrorized Florida during a 1984 spree that claimed the lives of 10 women was put to death Thursday, his execution witnessed by the woman who survived one of his attacks and aided in his capture.Inmate Bobby Joe Long was pronounced dead at 6:55 p.m. Thursday after a lethal injection at Florida State Prison, authorities said. Long had no last words, simply closing his eyes as the procedure began, witnesses said.The killer terrified the Tampa Bay area for eight months in 1984 as women began showing up dead, their bodies often left in gruesome poses. Most of the victims were strangled. Some had their throats slit. Others were bludgeoned.Law enforcement had few clues until the case of Lisa Noland, who survived one of Long’s attacks. She witnessed Thursday’s execution from the front row and appeared teary-eyed as she left the death chamber.Only 17 years old in 1984, Noland was abducted by Long outside a church that year. He raped her but ultimately let her go free. She left evidence of his crimes on the scene and gave police details that led to his capture.Long confessed to the crimes, receiving 28 life sentences and one death sentence for the murder of 22-year-old Michelle Simms. Another witness to the execution wore a polo shirt with a photo of one victim on the front and the words “Gone But Not Forgotten.” On the back were photos of all 10 victims and the words, “The Ones That Matter.”Noland became the victim Long let go. The day before her abduction, she’d written a suicide note, planning to end her life after years of sexual abuse by her grandmother’s boyfriend.But she ended up using heroic use of that history.“At the time he put the gun to my head, it was nothing new to me,” she told The Associated Press.She said she knew from her past abuse that if she fought Long, it would further enrage him.“I had to study this guy,” she said. “I had to learn who he was, what made him tick. If I did the wrong move, could it end my life? So literally, the night before I wrote a suicide note out, and now I was in a position where I had to save my life.”Investigators were baffled by the trail of bodies Long left in the Tampa Bay area. Artiss Ann Wick was the first woman killed, in March 1984. Nine victims followed.Law enforcement had few clues until Noland told her story.Noland said Wednesday that she wanted to hear Long’s final words even though she wouldn’t be able to address him.But if she could, it would be this, she had said: “I would say ‘Thank you for choosing me and not another 17-year-old girl.’”“Another 17-year-old girl probably wouldn’t have been able to handle it the way that I have,” she said.Long moved from West Virginia to the Miami area as a child and was raised by his mother, a cocktail waitress. After high school, he married his childhood sweetheart, but the relationship became violent. The ex-wife, Cindy Brown , told AP she recalls fearing for her life as the attacks grew worse, including a day he choked her and knocked her unconscious.Investigators gave the serial killer the moniker “The Classified Ad Rapist” while trying to solve dozens of rapes. Long would go through classified ads and make appointments to see items for sale. If a woman answered the door and was alone, he’d rape her.In the AP interview Wednesday, Noland described her attack in excruciating detail: the church where Long abducted her, the gun he pressed to her head, the bright light she could see on the car’s dashboard beneath the edge of her blindfold. It said Magnum, as in Dodge Magnum.She was menstruating, and she made sure she left blood evidence on the backseat of his car. She could tell the direction they were driving and when they were on Interstate 275 north of Tampa. When she was brought to the killer’s apartment, she counted the steps up to the second floor. When he let her use the bathroom, she made sure she left fingerprints everywhere.She knew she couldn’t make him angry. She appealed to a glimmer of kindness he showed while he washed her hair after raping her repeatedly. She asked what made him do what he did. He said he had suffered a bad breakup and hated women. She told him he seemed nice and that maybe she could be his girlfriend. She wouldn’t tell anyone.Long later got Noland dressed. He let her loose and told her not to take the blindfold off for five minutes. She got out of the car and tripped on the curb. Long caught her before she fell. She waited for what seemed like an eternity and pulled off the blindfold. She was in front of a tree in another churchyard.Today, she claims that tree as hers, and included it in the design of a T-shirt she made to mark Long’s execution.And she’s joined the ranks of the law enforcement officers who captured Long. She’s a deputy with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, the same department she helped lead to Long’s arrest.AutoplayShow ThumbnailsShow CaptionsLast SlideNext SlideRead or Share this story: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2019/05/23/bobby-joe-long-serial-killer-who-killed-10-women-executed-florida/1213552001/

What I’m Hearing: Jeff Zillgitt breaks down what both teams were saying following the Lakers Game 4 win over the Nuggets to take a 3-1 series lead and why this is familiar territory for Denver.

USA TODAYLAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The Boston Celtics finally won a “home” game.And they needed it.Facing elimination, the Celtics defeated the Miami Heat 121-108 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals on Friday. The Heat own a 3-2 series lead, and Game 6 is Sunday (7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN).The Celtics outscored the Heat 70-50 in the second half and leaned on their young stars. Forward Jayson Tatum, 22, scored 17 of his game-high 31 points in the third quarter, and had 10 rebounds and six assists.Boston forward Jaylen Brown, 23, scored 18 of his 28 points in the second half.Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart speaks with forward Jayson Tatum during the second half of Game 5 against the Miami Heat. (Photo: Kim Klement, USA TODAY Sports)”Our deal was to come out and play, come out and compete, give it our best shot,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. “I thought we played pretty well in the second half. But we’re going to have to do it again and again because of the position we’re in. “When we don’t get caught up in that other crap, we’re trying to be our best. We care about competing. We care about representing our team and our organization well. We care about each other. That’s why you compete.”Center Daniel Theis finally got the better of his counterpart, Miami’s Bam Adebayo, with 15 points, 13 rebounds and three blocks.“We need him to provide what he provides,” Stevens said. “He was great in the middle of the zone. He caught it twice and scored. He was great there on the glass on both ends. We need him to be good. We got a lot out of that center position tonight. That’s important.”Boston outscores Miami 70-50 in the 2nd half… 👀 the BEST 2nd half buckets from the @celtics in their Game 5 comeback W!Game 6: Sunday – 7:30pm/et, ESPN pic.twitter.com/JWRoIN4GAU— NBA (@NBA) September 26, 2020While all games are played at a neutral site here at the Disney Wide World of Sports Complex, there is a designated home team based on seed, and the Celtics last won a “home” game on Aug. 19 in the first round of the playoffs.The home team gets the raucous introductions just before tip-off, and the Celtics get to hear the beginning of “Crazy Train” and “I’m Shipping Up to Boston” at the start of the game. But nothing can recreate 18,000 fans at TD Garden for a playoff game.“Obviously, as much as the NBA has tried to make the home stuff matter, it just doesn’t,” Stevens said earlier in the series. “It has no impact, unfortunately. I’m not sure that we’ve played in a home game where the home team has won in three weeks. At the end of the day, it’s just guys playing in between those lines and who executes better and who plays the whole 48 or 53 or 58 minutes, or however long it takes, better.”Basketball ‘just a glimpse’ of who he is: Celtics star Jaylen Brown shows maturity, leadership beyond his 23 years’Stats don’t mean anything’: All-Star Trae Young determined to make Atlanta Hawks a winnerThe Celtics meandered through the first half without much purpose, settling for 3-pointers and playing apathetic defense.They trailed 60-51 early in the third quarter. But then it began to click for Boston. It started forcing the action on both ends – driving to the bucket looking for the best shot and defending with urgency.The Celtics went on a 20-3 run and took a 71-63 lead with 5:39 left in the third. They shot 54.2% from the field and made 11 of 12 free throws.By the midway point of the fourth quarter, Boston owned a 107-91 advantage.Tatum scored 20-plus points in the second half for the second consecutive game, and his third-quarter performance helped Boston take control.”Just finding my rhythm,” Tatum said. “Playing within the system, playing within the game. Knowing I need to be aggressive, try not to force it, but know I got to get myself going and make plays, whether it be for myself or other guys. Just build off that.”Boston overcame a 12-point first-half deficit, its largest comeback when facing elimination in 25 years, according to ESPN Stats & Info. “Boston played great in that second half,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “They deserved and earned what they got. We understand how tough it is to win in the playoffs. We did not compete hard enough defensively, and we paid the price for that. But you do have to credit Boston. They played with great force, particularly off the dribble.”Miami’s Goran Dragic scored a team-high 23 points, and Jimmy Butler had 17 points, eight rebounds and eight assists. The Heat shot just 19.4% on 3-pointers, and were outrebounded 50-38 as Boston dominated the paint.”They were playing harder than we were, which we all knew,” Butler said. “We’ve just got to correct that. That’s where it starts for us. Any time anybody is playing harder than we are, we are not playing our best basketball. I think a lot of it for us comes from how hard we play, how together we play, and we’ve got to get back to doing that.” AutoplayShow ThumbnailsShow CaptionsLast SlideNext SlideFind New & Used CarsNew CarsUsed CarsofPowered by Cars.com

Terrorism probe launched after 2 wounded in Paris stabbing | CBC News

A young man stabbed two people Friday outside the former Paris offices of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, where 12 people were killed in 2015, and a terrorism investigation has been opened into the new attack, authorities said. The suspected assailant had been arrested a month ago for carrying a screwdriver but was not on police radar for Islamic radicalization, France’s interior minister said. He said the screwdriver was considered a weapon, but did not explain why.Two people were wounded in Friday’s attack, and two suspects were arrested, although the links between the two suspects weren’t immediately clear. The main suspect, a young man with speckles of blood on his forehead and wearing orange gym shoes, was arrested on the steps of the Bastille Opera in eastern Paris, authorities said. The site is not far from where Friday’s attack took place, outside the building where the weekly Charlie Hebdo was located before the 2015 attack. The interior minister said the assailant arrived in France three years ago as an unaccompanied minor, apparently from Pakistan, but his identity was still being verified. “Manifestly it’s an act of Islamist terrorism,” Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said in an interview with public broadcaster France-2. “Obviously, there is little doubt. It’s a new bloody attack against our country, against journalists, against this society.” Police officers stand by a knife, seen on the ground, in Paris on Friday. (Soufian Fezzani Via AP) France’s counterterrorism prosecutor said earlier that authorities suspect a terrorist motive because of the place and timing of the stabbings: in front of the building where Charlie Hebdo was based until the Islamic extremist attack on its cartoonists, and at a time when suspects in the 2015 attack are on trial across town. Prosecutor Jean-Francois Ricard said that the chief suspect in Friday’s stabbings was arrested, along with another person. Ricard said the assailant did not know the people stabbed, a woman and a man working at a documentary production company who had stepped outside for a smoke break. An investigation was opened into “attempted murder in relation with a terrorist enterprise,” according to the terrorism prosecutor’s office. French Prime Minister Jean Castex said the lives of the two wounded workers lives were not in danger. He offered the government’s solidarity with their families and colleagues. The prime minister noted the “symbolic site” of the attack, “at the very moment where the trial into the atrocious acts against Charlie Hebdo is under way.” He promised the government’s “unfailing attachment to freedom of the press, and its determination to fight terrorism.” Neighbours stunned People in the neighbourhood were stunned, saying on French TV that they were reliving the nightmare of the newsroom massacre. In a tweet, Charlie Hebdo strongly condemned the stabbings. “This tragic episode shows us once again that fanaticism, intolerance, the origins of which will be revealed by the investigation, are still present in French society….There is no question of ceding anything,” the newspaper said. Toute l’équipe de Charlie apporte son soutien et sa solidarité à ses anciens voisins et confrères @PLTVfilms et aux personnes touchées par cette odieuse attaque.—@Charlie_Hebdo_ The two people confirmed injured worked for documentary film company Premieres Lignes, according to founder Paul Moreira. He told France’s BFM television that the attacker fled into the subway, and the company’s staff members were relocated. Moreira said a man in the street “attacked two people who were in front of the building, didn’t enter the building, and who attacked them with an axe and who left.” He said the company had not received any threats. His colleague, Luc Hermann, describing witnesses’ version of the attack, said the assailant first struck the woman in her face, then the man, before returning to attack the woman again. “The whole team … took refuge on the roof of the building like our team did five years ago during the attack of Charlie Hebdo,” he said on France-2. He said it was “incomprehensible” that authorities had not taken special security precautions particularly at this time. Trial underway A wrenching, two-month trial in the Charlie Hebdo attacks is currently unfolding at the main Paris courthouse. Murmurs broke at the terrorism trial of 14 people, including three fugitives, accused of helping the attackers in the January 2015 killings, as the news filtered through. The widows of the two brothers who forced their way into the newspaper’s offices and opened fire at a morning editorial meeting testified Friday. Caty Richard, a lawyer for the Charlie Hebdo journalists, heard about the knife attack in the midst of the trial. WATCH | Victims, families hope for answers during Charlie Hebdo attack trial: A trial has started for 14 people accused of helping gunmen carry out the 2015 attacks in Paris on the Charlie Hebdo newspaper and a Kosher grocery store, which victims and their families hope will give answers about why the attacks happened. 2:07 “My first thought was this will never end,” she said. “I am devastated, angry.” The interior minister conceded that security was lacking on the street where Charlie Hebdo was once headquartered. He said that 775 police protect its new location. But “there was an attack so we could have done better,” he said. The minister said he has ordered special protection for all “symbolic sites,” noting in particular Jewish sites ahead of the Yom Kippur holiday this weekend. A Jewish grocery store was targeted days after the Charlie Hebdo newsroom massacre in what authorities say were coordinated attacks. Charlie Hebdo recently reproduced caricatures of the Muslim prophet that stoked the ire of some Muslims when first produced.
