Suspect Wanted in Murder Case Mocks Police Looking for Her, And It Looks Like That's All Officers Needed

One Oklahoma woman learned the hard way to be careful about what you post online, especially when you’re wanted in connection with a heinous murder.

The Tulsa Police Department originally turned to the public Wednesday for help tracking down a woman named Lorraine Graves, suspected as an accessory in the March slaying of a relative, identified as Eric Graves.

Police posted the appeal to their Facebook page, and it quickly caught the eye of Graves herself. The wanted woman then decided to taunt the police.

“What’s where’s (sic) the reward money at,” Graves posted under the department’s desperate plea.

One user warned her that law enforcement would be able to track her through her social media use, while others predicted the wanted woman would soon find herself behind bars.

After the smug comment, it didn’t take police long to track Graves down.

One swift arrest later, and the department posted a picture of her in a holding cell while revealing how officers took the suspect in.

The TPD stressed that this was just an arrest, not a conviction. Regardless, it doesn’t look like Graves has any reward money coming her way.

It’s unclear what motive drove the killing of 30-year-old Eric Graves or what his relationship to Lorraine Graves was. But according to Tulsa World, the shooting broke out over a love interest.

Although Lorraine Graves initially gave detectives an interview about the slaying of her relative, she later refused to cooperate and claimed to have forgotten everything.

It appears the warrant for her arrest was issued shortly after this radical change.

This isn’t the only trouble she is in, either.

Documents cited by the Tulsa World allege Lorraine Graves “facilitated the discarding of the potential murder weapon” by driving one of the shooting suspects around to dispose of a gun.

Gabriel Hopson, 20, and Jayden Hopson, 19, are the primary suspects in the killing.

They are both being held on first-degree murder charges.

Graves is now charged with accessory to murder, according to Tulsa County jail records. Her bail is set at $250,000.

DOJ Now Has Official Request to Begin Criminal Investigation of Dr. Fauci

Documents obtained by the Washington Examiner revealed that Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul has asked Attorney General Merrick Garland to criminally investigate Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden. Paul has sent the criminal referral to Garland because he argues that Fauci lied to Congress when he said at a Senate testimony that the National Institutes of Health never funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the Examiner reported Saturday. “I write to urge the United States Department of Justice to open an investigation into testimony made to the United States Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions by Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on May 11, 2021,” Paul’s letter to Garland, obtained by the Examiner, stated. Paul had announced his intention to seek the criminal investigation on Tuesday. On May 11, Paul and Fauci had a rough exchange where Paul questioned Fauci about whether he supported NIH funding of research at the advanced biology institute in Wuhan, China, which included, according to Paul, “gain of function” research. Gain-of-function research is a type of medical research whereby scientists modify a disease-causing organism in a way that alters how the disease is developed, in a way that increases the transmissibility of the illness, and/or in a way that widens or shrinks the range of hosts for the disease. To best understand what this kind of research is, consider a hypothetical virus A as one that affects only humans and dogs. To modify the hypothetical virus A to infect pigs in addition to humans and dogs would be considered a “gain of function” experiment because it, in this case, would be considered widening the disease’s range of hosts. The trouble with such experiments is when the modified…

With an openly bellicose swagger reminiscent of former Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev telling the West “we will bury you,” Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a warning to the world Sunday. As Russia celebrated Navy Day in St. Petersburg, Putin said the Russian navy can destroy anything it wants, anytime it wants, anywhere it wants. “We are capable of detecting any underwater, above-water, airborne enemy and, if required, carry out an unpreventable strike against it,” Putin said, according to Reuters. The Russian state-run Tass news agency said the parade of ships Putin was watching included 50 total vessels, including 18 combat ships.

Putin has said that the Defender was deliberately sent on a mission to provoke a response. “First of all it was a provocation, quite obviously,” he said in an interview last month, according to the Independent. “What were they trying to tell us?” he said. “What goals were they trying to achieve? “It was a complex provocation organized by the U.S. and the British because a warship entered our waters during the day and then … an American warplane took off from somewhere in Greece,” Putin added. Putin claimed that the British ship “came into our waters and they looked at how we…
