Mother: Daughter in Capitol chase was 'depressed'

Friday, 04 October 2013 02:10 Published in National News

   NEW YORK (AP) — The mother of a Connecticut woman who was shot to death by police after trying to breach a barrier at the White House said her daughter was suffering from post-partum depression.

   Authorities said the woman set off a high-speed car chase that put the Capitol on lockdown Thursday and caused a fresh panic the city where a gunman killed 12 people two weeks ago.

   Two law enforcement officials identified the driver as 34-year-old Miriam Carey, of Stamford, Conn. She was traveling with a 1-year-old girl who avoided serious injury and was taken into protective custody. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation.

   Carey's mother, Idella Carey, told ABC News Thursday night that her daughter began suffering from post-partum depression after giving birth to her daughter, Erica, last August.

   "She had post-partum depression after having the baby" she said. She added, "A few months later, she got sick. She was depressed. ... She was hospitalized."

   Idella Carey said her daughter had "no history of violence" and she didn't know why she was in Washington, D.C., on Thursday. She said she thought Carey was taking Erica to a doctor's appointment in Connecticut.

   ABC News reported that Miriam Carey was a dental hygienist. Her boss, Dr. Steven Oken, described Carey as a person who was "always happy."

   I would never in a million years believe that she would do something like this," he said. "It's the furthest thing from anything I would think she would do, especially with her child in the car. I am floored that it would be her."

Pension deal uncertain as Illinois veto session nears

Friday, 04 October 2013 02:07 Published in Local News

   SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - A proposed solution to Illinois' historic $100 million pension crisis is hanging in the balance as the state Legislature's October veto session approaches.

   Key Democrats on a pension panel are pushing a plan to save the state $138 billion over the next 30 years, but Republican lawmakers want a number of changes. House Speaker Michael Madigan hasn't yet committed to calling the proposal for a vote, either.

   Senate President John Cullerton supports the deal and calls it "less unconstitutional" than a previous plan that would have saved $163 billion.

   Illinois' five public-employee retirement funds have an unfunded liability of about $100 billion. The annual contribution to the fund, plus payments on past pension bonds, is about $7.65 billion this year. That number will increase in years to come without action.

 

MO woman, 62, died in NV motel car fire

Friday, 04 October 2013 00:46 Published in Local News

   FERNLEY, Nev. (AP) - The victim of a fatal car fire in a Fernley motel parking lot has been identified as a 62-year-old Missouri woman.

   Lyon County Sheriff's Lt. J.L. Pattison said Thursday dental records confirmed the identity of Greiss Ghobrial of Wildwood, Mo. He said the cause of death remains under investigation but no foul play is suspected.

   Her body was found in a burned out car by emergency crews responding to a report of a fire late Tuesday night at the Comfort Suites off U.S. Interstate 80 about 30 miles east of Reno.

   Firefighters said they found her inside the car after they extinguished the blaze.
