Houston Authorities Searching For ‘Serial Defecator’
HOUSTON (CBSDFW.COM) – Deputies with the Harris County Precinct One Constable’s Office say a man has been terrorizing a neighborhood in the Woodland Heights area of Houston by going to the bathroom in several yards at night.
“We’ve had reports from six to eight neighbors out there that someone is actually coming into their yard and defecating — generally on their driveways,” said Sgt. J.C. Mosier.
Authorities believe the unknown man is committing the act between 1:00 and 4:00 a.m., but a motive for crimes has not yet been established.
He is the cool kid who has a 300+ pound professional football player as a friend. No one will pick on him now.
CHICAGO -- Bears Pro Bowl guard Kyle Long spent part of the weekend making good on a pledge he made to support 9-year-old Huntley, Illinois, resident Andrew Oyston, who has had to endure taunts from elementary school kids on the bus and in the classroom because of his weight for close to three years, according to his father.
The bullying got so bad, said Andrew's father, Frank, that Andrew had to change schools.
Frank Oyston, who continues to search for ways to help his despondent son, has addressed the issue with the principal at Andrew's new school.
"It had reached the point where Andrew couldn't handle it anymore," Oyston told ESPNChicago.com on Monday. "He didn't know what to do. He didn't want to talk to anybody. The principal got involved and he obviously wasn't happy with it, but something had to happen because this wasn't stopping.
Long did not disappoint at the party.
"Kyle was amazing with the kids," Oyston said. "He was playing games with all of them and following them around. He took pictures with my daughter. Andrew and he even held our 16-month-old son. It was really amazing.
"He came back to the house for a little bit after the party and signed some pictures. He even asked the kids if they wanted to go outside in the backyard and throw the football around. That was the kids' favorite part: playing catch with Kyle. Running around and throwing the football with him, the kids thought that was just amazing. All day yesterday my kids were outside playing catch and pretending they were Kyle Long."
Long called Andrew's sister "a firecracker."
"I'm surprised she doesn't stand up and beat up all the bullies. She's a tough little girl," he said.
"There was no point and time when we sat down and had a serious conversation," Long said of Andrew. "He just needed somebody to hang out with and have a strong male presence, like an older brother-type deal. If that's the role that needs to be played, I have no problem with that. He's a really great kid.
"It's always fun to have a little brother," Long said, adding that he "absolutely" will stay in touch with the family.
