It was updated on Dec. 29, 2018.] Matt Herren still struggles to make sense of what happened the night of Oct. 12, 2012, when his close friend, Ryan Poston, was killed. "I think about him every day," Herren said. "You don't think something like that is ever going to happen to someone you know." "Is there something I could've done that could've prevented that? And I know a lot of people in his life had to have felt the same way," Herren told "48 Hours" correspondent Peter Van Sant. How did things spiral so out of control between Ryan and his girlfriend, Shayna Hubers, that she shot him to death -- insisting it was to protect herself? "What was lost when your friend was shot and killed?" Van Sant asked Herren. "He's the type of person that you want in your life," he replied. "Not just a friend, but a loving son, a protective, adoring older brother." "He had … [Read more...] about New murder trial for Shayna Hubers: Why did she shoot Ryan Poston six times?

My sister Dara Fitzpatrick was one of the pilots of the Irish Coast Guard Rescue 116 helicopter that crashed off the coast of Mayo while on a callout in the early hours of Tuesday, March 14, 2017. My family was notified of the crash by two work colleagues and friends of Dara's calling to the door just before 6am. They told us that the helicopter had gone down and there had been no contact with the crew since the early hours. All we could do was wait. As the morning went on, news bulletins reported that a body had been recovered from the water. Approximately six hours later, two officials from Dara's company arrived and delivered the information that we were hoping we would never hear. The body recovered from the water had been formally identified as Dara. That moment, with the man in uniform and the man in the suit standing in the kitchen of Dara's home… her family and friends huddled close together… as if bracing for what we knew was coming… hearing the words said … [Read more...] about ‘I know now grief is the price we pay for love’
Brace For Impact is an apt name for She Makes War’s fourth album as its creator aims for a collision course with the modern world and all its craziness. The nom de guerre of Laura Kidd, She Makes War has been a resolutely DIY project for the singer-songwriter-producer and her guitar-driven tracks.Brace is the follow-up to 2016’s acclaimed Direction of Travel, and it sees Laura take a major step up in every way.‘It’s the most ambitious musically,’ she tells The Guide, speaking before the album’s release earlier this month. ‘And it’s the one where I’ve had the most assistance from other people – my husband is really involved, he’s been doing a lot of cheerleading and supporting me, and saying: “Of course you should do that and go on tour”! ‘Obviously as a solo act, you’re on your own making decisions and you can start feeling like: “Why am I doing this, is this … [Read more...] about She Makes War get ‘big-hearted’ as Laura Kidd braces for impact
Olly Murs is showing me an email on his phone. The punctuation is a bit wonky, but the sentiment isn’t. “Mate, just heard Moves,” it reads. “You smashed it. I was smiling throughout. Very exciting. It’s gonna be huge, man. So excited for you.” Murs rocks back in his seat outside a Kensington pub and beams like the cat-that-got-the-hit. The emailer is Ed Sheeran. The subject is the Sheeran-penned Moves, Murs’ boisterous and indeed smash-shaped comeback single. It’s the follow-up to an album (2016’s 24 Hrs) that was a bit sad-face emoji, written as it was in the wake of the Essex lad’s split from his girlfriend. “She’s moved on now and she’s met someone else,” shrugs the professionally chirpy singer, presenter and judge on The Voice, “and I’m happy for her.” Just to rub his nose in it, that someone else is called … Ollie. “Yeah, exactly. That’s a kick in … [Read more...] about Olly Murs: ‘I chose The X Factor over my twin – we don’t speak now’
Declan John knows the questions are coming, he’s known it since he first sat down for this interview. The Wales international knows well enough the stir it can cause when a former Cardiff City player joins Swansea City, or vice versa. John, 23, made his switch to the Liberty Stadium on deadline-day, providing a welcome additional option at left-back where Martin Olsson has been the lone senior player for pretty much an entire year. The move was unexpected, John had made quite an impression with Rangers in Scotland last term. His initial loan spell turned into a permanent move - and a three-and-a-half year contract at Ibrox - last December. Then, as has so often been the case in the Wales international’s fledgling career, a change of manager pulled the rug from under his feet. An injury in pre-season prevented him making a mark for new ‘Gers boss Steven Gerrard and, all of a sudden, a loan move to South Wales had become a permanent one. John, who hails from Merthyr, is … [Read more...] about John on Cardiff ties, pressure and the text that left him gutted
