British Author Found Dead and Buried in Woods Near Her Dominican Republic Home Flame out: NFL field pyrotechnics get brief ban

British Author Found Dead and Buried in Woods Near Her Dominican Republic HomeA British author was found dead and buried in a shallow grave outside her Dominican Republic home days after she was reported missing, according to local media reports.The body of Lindsay de Feliz, 64, was found Thursday by a canine unit in the woods near her home in Moncion, according to local news outlet, Hoy. Her body, which showed signs of strangulation, had reportedly been buried in a 2-foot-deep hole, wrapped in a yellow sheet and plastic bags used for dog food.  Authorities said Danilo Feliz, her 50-year-old husband, reported the author missing on Tuesday. On Thursday, he was arrested in connection with her death along with his 29-year-old son, Dani Alberto Feliz, and a third man, 37-year-old Anquilino Rosario Sanchez. “We are in close contact with the police in the Dominican Republic following the death of a British woman in Mao,” a spokesperson for the U.K. Foreign Office told The Independent. Some of her former classmates and friends offered a reward this week for any information resulting in de Feliz’s discovery, writing on Facebook that she was “in great spirits” before she disappeared. “She is loved by so many people and is the most generous caring woman I have ever met,” Easton Hector-Brown wrote.Air Force Major Charged With Murder After Missing Wife’s Remains FoundAccording to her website, de Feliz was born and raised in the U.K., where she earned a degree in French and German at Wolverhampton University, and later an MBA at Bradford University. “Following a successful career in marketing she decided to leave it all behind and follow her dreams,” her website states. “Arriving in the Dominican Republic as a scuba diving instructor, for a six-month contract, she ended up staying and married a Dominican, becoming a stepmother to three young boys.”The 64-year-old has written two books about living in the Dominican Republic—What About Your Saucepans? in 2013 and Life After My Saucepans: Lifting the Lid on Living in the Dominican Republic in 2017.In her first memoir, de Feliz chronicled the first decade of her life in the Dominican Republic, from her decision to abandon her marriage and “successful career” in England to her at times tumultuous life in the Caribbean, where she fought against political corruption alongside her new husband and was once shot at in her home. In her second book, de Feliz shares more about her life as an expat, and their decision to live “in hiding, away from the beaches and tourist resorts, in the mountainous, remote, sparsely populated north-west of the country.”“Will Danilo return to politics, will they turn their lives around and will they adapt to their new surroundings?” a description of the book reads. St. Louis Woman Looked Up ‘What to Do if Your Husband Is Upset You Are Pregnant’ Before Her Murder: WarrantsIn addition to her books, de Feliz worked as a translator and marketing consultant. She also maintained a blog chronicling her adventures in the Dominican Republic. Days before she went missing, the author wrote that she and her husband, a newly minted lawyer, went to Puerto Plata for a murder trial, where she was serving as a translator for his client. Later in the Nov. 29 post, de Feliz said she excused herself from the courthouse to stop by a grocery store to pick up some special items for her birthday, which she feasted on while her husband was traveling for work.“The next few days he was away, working on more cases so I stuffed my face with baked potatoes, slathered in real butter and horseradish, rare steak and cream pepper sauce, and a pile of mushrooms,” she wrote. “Pure heaven and a total change from mashed plantains and a tin of sardines.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder

In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
