Bre Payton, conservative writer, dies at 26 after sudden illness
[image] 

Bre Payton, a conservative writer at The Federalist and frequent guest on television news outlets including Fox News Channel, died Friday after a sudden illness, according to her employer. She was 26.

Those who knew and worked with Payton at the Federalist website expressed shock Friday over her death. She had been on television just days earlier.

“Bre has passed,” publisher Ben Domenech tweeted. “We are devastated. Last we saw her, she was her funny, smart, vivacious self. Now lost to us so suddenly.”

A few hours earlier Friday, Domenech asked for prayers and linked to a CaringBridge website that said Payton was found unresponsive on Thursday in San Diego. Doctors, according to the post, determined she had contracted the “H1N1 flu and possibly meningitis.”

Payton, who was based in Washington, was in California this week guest-hosting a show on the One America News Network. On Wednesday, Payton told her Twitter followers to tune in that night to see her on television.

But the next morning, according to the CaringBridge post, a friend found her “unresponsive and barely breathing.”

Man who claimed Howard Hughes left him $156million in his will after he rescued him from a deserted Nevada road in 1967 dies aged 74 having never seen a cent of it

  • Melvin Dummar, 74, claimed Howard Hughes left him the money for rescuing him on a desert road outside Las Vegas in 1967
  • The so-called 'Mormon will' was said to have also named The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as beneficiary of 1/16 share of the Hughes estate
  • A U.S. appeals court in 2008 affirmed a Nevada state court jury's decision 30 years earlier that found the will was a fake
  • Dummar's unusual story was depicted in the 1980 film 'Melvin and Howard'

HOUSTON (AP) — George H.W. Bush, a patrician New Englander whose presidency soared with the coalition victory over Iraq in Kuwait, but then plummeted in the throes of a weak economy that led voters to turn him out of office after a single term, has died. He was 94.

The forensic psychiatrist who assisted in the investigations into the death of American child beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey has been shot dead outside his office.

Dr. Steven Pitt, 59, helped investigate the high profile 1996 murder case as well as a string of other killings in the Phoenix area more than a decade ago. 

In JonBenet’s case Pitt believed the pineapple found in the six-year-old’s digestive tract, which her mother denied she ate, was proof of a family cover up.

He was leaving his office when witnesses say they heard a loud argument then gunfire as he was shot on Thursday.

Phoenix Police found Pitt dead from a gunshot wound at 5:23pm Thursday
Investigators have released a sketch of the suspect behind the shooting, who fled the scene
 

Phoenix Police found Pitt, left, dead from a gunshot wound at 5:23pm Thursday. Investigators have released a sketch of the suspect behind the shooting, who fled the scene, right

His office is located near the intersection of 71st Street and Bell Road in Scottsdale, a suburb of Phoenix.

Phoenix police say Pitt was 'critically wounded' when officers first arrived on the scene, according to ABC15

A flyer from the police department says he was found deceased from a gunshot wound Thursday at 5:23pm.

Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Vince Lewis says he has no information on whether the killing is connected to his work, according to Tuscon.com

'We are not ruling anything out, but at this point, a loud argument probably suggests they knew each other either professionally or personally,' Lewis said.

Barbara Bush dies aged 92 two days after falling seriously ill

Former first lady Barbara Bush died at home in Houston, Texas, on Tuesday evening at the age of 92, shortly after deciding she no longer wanted to receive treatment for her failing health. She held the hand of her husband, 41st president George H.W. Bush, all day and had him by her side when she passed away. The snowy-haired first lady brought a grandmotherly style to buttoned-down Washington, often appearing in her trademark fake pearl chokers and displaying no vanity about her white hair and wrinkles. Her death on Tuesday was announced in a statement from the office of George H.W. Bush, and led to tributes from figures including Donald Trump and former presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter. Bush is pictured middle in 2005 and inset in an earlier photograph taken from the family album. On the left, she is seen with George H.W. Bush in the residence they shared when he was Vice President in 1983. And on the right she is alongside George W Bush at Fort Hood, Texas, on April 8, 2007.
