Sick, Sad And Twisted: Washington Teen Allegedly Rapes A Girl Dying Of An Overdose Before Using Her Thumb To Break Into Her Phone

 The Herald recently reported Lynnwood resident, 19-year-old Brian Roberto Varela, could face charges of rape, manslaughter and homicide by controlled substance. According to police, the suspect allegedly bragged about sexually assaulting his victim as she died while overdosing on Percocet pills and liquid THC. It is reported Varela then attempted to cover up her death by hacking into her cellphone. During the incident, Varela is said to have sent a group message to friends that showed a “a semi-nude, unconscious young woman with swollen blue lips.” Court papers say the picture included the following caption:
“LOL I think she od’d, still breathing.”
According to The Herald, reports say Varela used a slang word for sex and suggested he’d been engaging in intercourse with her “to pass the time.”
Police identified the young woman as Alyssa Mae Noceda, an 18-year-old Mariner High School student. Noceda’s mother says her daughter had gone to a party Saturday evening in a mobile home park in the 400 block of Lakeview Road, where she met Varela.
Varela’s roommate tells police he saw Noceda alive after 9 p.m. on Saturday. The next morning Varela came to get him for help and told him the young women had “snorted a line of crushed Percocet pills, took a ‘dab’ of liquid THC and passed out.” The roommate says he advised Varela to call police, but he didn’t and instead went to work a double shift at the local Dairy Queen.
At the icecream parlor Varela shared with coworkers that he engaged in sexual intercourse with Noceda while she was passed out and afterwards considered taking her to the hospital but ultimately decided he was “too tired” to do so. He admitted the young woman seemed “out of it” during sex. Varela states he fell asleep around 4:30 a.m., woke up to find Noceda cold and stiff, and then showed his roommates the body. After work, Varela grabbed a plastic tub from his mother’s house to dispose of the body. He washed the body to try and remove any DNA after researching how to get rid of a dead body on-line. He also used the dead woman’s thumb to unlock her iPhone 8, to make a post on the app Snapchat that would make people think she’d run away from home.
On Wednesday, Judge Tam Bui found probable cause to hold Varela in jail. She set bail at $500,000. Deputy prosecutor Bob Hendrix said the allegations involving Varela show “a callous and shocking disregard for human life.” In front of around 25 observers, Gina Pierson expressed her disgust with Varela:
“She was just an innocent 18-year-old girl, having fun, and (she) was taken advantage of.”
“I want to know why. She didn’t deserve it. Nobody deserves anything that bad.”
We hope Noceda’s family get the justice they seek in this tragic incident.

Abducted Chibok girls say 'we won't return': Boko Haram video

Islamist militants Boko Haram on Monday released a new video purporting to show at least 14 of the Chibok schoolgirls whose mass kidnapping nearly four years ago became a symbol of NIgeria's brutal conflict.


But despite a concerted global campaign for their release, and talks between the government and the militants, the girls shown in the recording vowed not to return to their parents.

The 20-minute-long video is the first since May last year, when another woman who also claimed to be among the 219 seized from the town in Borno state said she wanted to stay.

Both videos will compound the suffering of the girls' families and friends but also indicate the extent to which they may have become influenced by their captors.

All of those who were shown on camera were wearing black or blue hijabs and at least three were carrying babies.

One of the students, her face covered by a veil, said: "We are the Chibok girls that you cry for us to return to you. By the grace of Allah, we…

Bill Gates is surprisingly strict about his kids' tech use — and it should be a red flag for the rest of us

For all his success in designing world-changing technology, Bill Gates has set surprisingly strict rules for how his kids can use that technology, the billionaire philanthropist has said in multiple interviews.


"You're always looking at how it can be used in a great way — homework and staying in touch with friends — and also where it has gotten to excess," Gates told the Mirror in April 2017.

Each of Gates' three kids — ages 15, 18, and 21 — has grown up in a home that forbade cell phones until age 14, banned cell-phone use at the dinner table, and set limits on how close to bedtime kids could use their phones.

Gates told the Mirror his kids routinely complained that other kids were getting phones much earlier, but the pleas did nothing to change the policy. In a separate interview with Matt Lauer, then at the Today Show, Gates said he doesn't go as far as keeping the passwords to his kids' Facebook accounts, but that online safety is "a very tricky iss…

Why eBay's decision to drop PayPal is a good thing

PayPal COO Bill Ready contends eBay’s decision to ditch the company and use Adyen to process payments moving forward is actually good for PayPal. 


On Wednesday, eBay announced it plans to use smaller European competitor Adyen to process payments on the back-end once its original partnership with PayPal runs out in 2020 — news that initially sent PayPal stock down as much as 8.8% in one day.  

Under the original terms of the agreement, eBay uses PayPal as its primary payments provider, meaning that the majority of transactions processed on eBay were processed through PayPal. In exchange, PayPal was restricted in how it works with other marketplaces that compete with eBay. While PayPal was free to work with marketplaces that rival eBay, PayPal couldn’t offer the same degree of services to other marketplaces.

But come July 2020, that will change. Under the new terms PayPal and eBay agreed upon, which will last until 2023, PayPal will be free to work with other marketplaces and offer …
