On Friday, the National Museum of Canada released its annual report on the world's diamonds, and it was an illuminating look at how diamonds are made and how the price of the precious metals has affected the world."We're seeing a surge in the supply of diamonds and that's creating a demand that's pushing prices up," said John Friesen, senior vice-president of the National Museums of Canada."But th...
Posted October 16, 2018 05:13:49The family of a New Jersey man who was killed in the Las Vegas massacre have filed a $5.2 million lawsuit against his husband, alleging he negligently left the dog in his home.
Amber Pearl, 25, died in February 2016 after a bullet went through the window of her home in the small town of Rodeo, N.J. Pearl’s son said he left his wife with the dog for about two weeks after her husband told her to leave him alone.
Pearl, who had two other children, left the pet in a crate and went to sleep.
On July 17, 2016, Pearl woke up and found her dog, Rodeon, lifeless in the bedroom.
She called 911, but the 911 operator said she had gone to bed.
Police later found the dog was not breathing and Pearl’s husband told police the dog had been shot in the head.
He told investigators that Pearl had called him to say she had lost the dog, according to the lawsuit.
When police arrived, they found Pearl lying in a pool of blood and Rodeone was dead on the floor.
Pearl had suffered a bullet wound to the back of her head and was in shock, police said.
The coroner’s office ruled her death an accidental shooting.
The lawsuit alleges that the negligent conduct caused the dog to die.
The family has since filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Pearl’s ex-husband, who the family alleges told him he was responsible for the dog’s death, according the New Jersey Union Leader.
The Rodeotons’ attorney declined to comment on the lawsuit and declined to make Pearl available for an interview.
The case was investigated by the New York City Police Department, the New Mexico State Police, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Las Vegas Police Department.
