Google Earth search leads to gruesome ending to decades-old missing person’s case

first_imgaijohn784/iStock(GRAND ISLES, Fla.) — A man using Google Earth to have a look around his old property ended up spotting something unusual — sparking a chain of events that led to the remains of a person who disappeared two decades ago.As he scanned a pond behind the home, the man spotted a lump that appeared to be a vehicle and reached out to the property’s current resident, who then used a drone to scan the Grand Isles, Fla., property.That resident then contacted the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, which confirmed it was a vehicle, it said in a statement.The sheriff’s office removed the vehicle from the pond, which they say was “heavily calcified” and had been in the water “for a significant amount of time.”“Upon removing the vehicle skeleton remains were found inside,” the sheriff’s office said.On Tuesday, authorities identified the remains as that of William Moldt, who was reported missing on Nov. 8, 1997, after leaving a nightclub, authorities said.

Holcomb: Schools starting with online only should get full funding for now

first_imgCoronavirusIndianaLocalNews Pinterest Pinterest (Photo supplied/State of Indiana) Governor Holcomb is trying to defuse a disagreement over school funding for schools which don’t resume in-person classes.Senate President Pro Tem Rod Bray (R-Martinsville) last week warned schools that a fully online semester would classify them under the law as virtual schools, which receive 15-percent less money per pupil. Holcomb says he’ll join Bray and House Speaker Todd Huston (R-Fishers) in asking the State Board of Education to delay the enrollment count date which determines that money, from September to December.While the law on the enrollment count predates the pandemic, it includes a provision allowing the board to delay the count if a school is facing “extreme patterns of illness or other unusual conditions.”Holcomb says by December, it’s possible schools now online could be back in the classroom. If they’re not, Holcomb says the delay means legislators will be able to address the issue soon afterward when they begin their session in January.Holcomb says the delay should give schools enough certainty to make decisions in the best interests of their students without worrying about their funding. He says it’s preferable for students to be in the classroom, but if that’s not safe, parents need to be confident there’s a safe alternative.Holcomb says he’s committed to ensuring schools receive the full funding they were expecting. But a statement from Bray, released by Holcomb’s office, says only that legislators “can take a fresh look at these statutes in light of the pandemic to ensure schools are adequately funded.”Republican state school superintendent Jennifer McCormick says the delay is only that — a delay. She says schools deserve a full solution to the funding dilemma, and says her staff is still studying potential consequences of the delay. And Gary Senator Eddie Melton (D-Gary), a former State Board of Education member, slams the compromise as “political trickery.” He accuses Holcomb of kicking the can past the November election, with no guarantee schools will keep their full funding when the count is finally taken.At least 35 school districts are starting the year online with no firm date for resuming in-class instruction.in hopes things will be back to normal.Schools who start the year online should still get their full funding — at least for now:Governor Holcomb says he’ll ask the State Board of Education to push back the official school enrollment count which determines school funding to December. That keeps schools fully funded until then:State law gives virtual schools 15-percent less per student, and Senate President Pro Tem Rod Bray warned last week that applies to any school which spends half the year online. Holcomb says there’ll be a clearer picture of the pandemic by December, and legislators will be back in session the following month if the law needs to be changed.
