9-2-15 California:

SHERMAN OAKS—Former violin teacher, Christopher Ling, shot himself at his house in Sherman Oaks on Tuesday, September 1 as U.S. Marshals attempted to serve a warrant for his arrest and extradition to Great Britain in relation to a high-profile child molestation case.

Ling, 56, was found dead in the bathroom of his home around 6 a.m., soon after a team of officers arrived at his doorstep, said Laura Vega of the U.S. Marshals Service.

An ongoing two-year case has been built against Ling by the Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service as 11 victims, who at the time were between the ages 9 and 15, came forward and delivered abuse statements to the Greater Manchester police (GMP). The majority of the women were Ling’s late pupils at the Chetham’s school of music in Manchester, England in the 1980s. The outside victim was a young girl who cleaned his house.

Ling coerced his ex-pupils into playing naked and further manipulated them by engaging in sexual acts and painfully spanking their derrière’s.

British authorities sought extradition assistance from the US State Department beginning 15 months ago, in 2014, after Ling refused to return to Britain for questioning and ignoring two warrants from a district judge. The US finally agreed to aiding the Britain’s Crown Prosecution Services several weeks back in the course to bring Ling to justice.

6-1-15 Louisiana:

A body found floating in the Mississippi River on May 12 has been identified as a 27-year-old from Houma.

Anthony Ferguson‘s body was recovered after an hours-long recovery operation on May 12 near Port Sulphur, Plaquemines Parish Sheriff Lonnie Greco said in a news release.

Ferguson’s identity had eluded authorities for weeks. The corpse was found in a state of extreme decomposition, and police initially had little to go on other than a macabre tattoo of a skull found on the body’s left chest. But the Louisiana State Police crime lab was able to use DNA to positively identify Ferguson on May 27.

Ferguson’s car was discovered abandoned on the Crescent City Connection on March 11. Matey said she would not speculate about whether Ferguson committed suicide, but that no foul play was suspected in his death.
