(Scroll down for video) An animal shelter thought that their financial problems are finally over after they received a huge donation.

The founder of an animal shelter in Oklahoma, said she was delighted to receive the donation of $188,981.03 and dismayed to learn that she had to return it.

Susan Babbitt said she was very excited when lawyers for Mary K. Thomas, a woman in Arizona who recently passed away at the age of 68 years, contacted her and said that she had arranged for 27.5 percent of her assets to be donated to the Friends of Collinsville Animal Shelter.

"Can you believe it?" Babbitt said. "We thought we were sitting on top of the world," she added.
Babbitt said she received the check and it quickly cleared in her bank, but soon after, the lawyers contacted her again and informed her that the whole thing was just one huge mistake.

The lawyers said that the money had been earmarked for the Friends of Collinsville Animal Shelter in Illinois, which has changed its name to Warren Billhartz Collinsville Animal Shelter.

"The two animal shelters have the same name," Matt Dana, managing partner of the Dana law firm in Scottsdale, Arizona said. "That's where the confusion began," she added.

“Poor woman. She already thought to have struck it rich only to have the money taken away from her. I hope that some people will now step up and donate some money to this animal shelter so the she will have enough money to continue helping unwanted animals,” Francis McCoy, 21, of Columbia, South Carolina told after learning about the mistaken donation.

Babbitt said she has consulted with lawyers and found to have no choice but to pay the money back.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

(Scroll down for video) A woman who was dressed as “The Hulk” was seen on camera going wild on a teen girl, according to video uploaded to the internet.

Police said they are searching for the woman accused of assaulting a teenage girl while dressed as the Marvel superhero.

Police in York, England, released closed circuit television footage of the woman dressed as the green superhero becoming angry, in an attempt to identify the suspect.

Investigators said the woman allegedly roughed up a 17-year-old in the face just after 3:00 am, in front of a McDonald’s.

“The woman falsely believed that because she dressed up like a superhero she is a superhero, but in fact, the woman, gave superheroes everywhere a bad name. I hope she is caught quickly and brought to justice,” Catherine Bishop, 18, of York, England told after watching the video of the Hulk punching the teen.

"This seems to have been a completely unprovoked assault. Fortunately, the wounds were not too serious," police officer Cheryl Hunter said. "However, the outcome could have been much more serious," she added.

"If you witnessed the assault or can identify the woman I need to talk to you about this incident. I ask that you contact the police or Crimestoppers immediately," Hunter said.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Teacher’s career over after former girlfriend steals his computer, post his nude photos online

Lee David Clayworth and Lee Ching Yan 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

(Scroll down for video) A teacher’s life was turned upside down when he broke up with his girlfriend.

The teacher’s former girlfriend is taking revenge by posting his nude photos online after she was dumped.

Lee David Clayworth, 35, of Vancouver, tried to do everything he can to stop her, but so far nothing had worked. Clayworth said his career has been derailed by his former girlfriend who would not stop publishing nude photos, and defaming him online.

Clayworth decided to go public with his problem after he has been cyber stalked by his former girlfriend for two and a half years. Clayworth, who is from Canada, dated Lee Ching Yan for several months while teaching in Malaysia in 2010, but after they broke up, Yan took his computer and posted many of his personal photos online.

After she started defaming him and posting nude photos, Clayworth sued her in a Malaysian court. The judge ordered her to pay him damages and ordered her to stop the cyber-attacks. When she did not comply, the judge jailed her for contempt.

Unfortunately for Clayworth, Yan fled the country, and she continues to post photos and negative comments about him such as this one: “Warnings: Beware girls, he has genital herpes. We both had a STD check. He accused me several times that I had given it to him. Only later I found out that he was cheating on me and he might have gotten it from Thailand. Not sure if it’s from the girl that he was with or from prostitutes.” She wrote on

“This is very unfortunate. Seems like the girl felt betrayed and she wanted to do something that will hurt him and ruin his life, her mission was accomplished,” Douglas Walker, 29, of St. Louis, Missouri told when she was asked her opinion about on the cyber-attack.

“I think it’s good that he went public so people will know that the allegations were posted by an ex who is bitter. I hope the girl finds love again so she can move on with her life and not be stuck in the past,” Nancy King, 34, of San Diego, California told when she was asked her opinion about Yan’s revenge tactics.

Clayworth reportedly spoke with Canadian police who are looking into bringing charges against Yan.

By: Sarah Weiss

(Scroll down for video) A leading Islamic scholar declared publicly in front of thousands of his followers that Israel has never been a Jewish state. “It has always been the land of the Muslims,” Yusuf al-Qaradawi said in the Gaza Strip.

The prominent Islamic scholar who is making a historic visit to the Gaza Strip said that Israel has no right to exist.
Yusuf al-Qaradawi said Thursday that "this land has never once been a Jewish land. Israel is for Palestine, an Arab Islamic nation." The Qatar-based cleric became famous for his popular television show and is widely respected in the Muslim world.

Al-Qaradawi arrived in Gaza on Wednesday for a visit seen as a boost of legitimacy for the ruling Hamas militant group.

“This is another reason why Israel cannot move ahead with the peace process. Israel is dealing with a radical faction of Muslims who refuse to recognize the existence of Israel and the existence of Jews,” Deborah Klein, 47, of Staten Island, New York told after learning about the Islamic scholar’s statement.

Hamas took control of Gaza in 2007, after several days of fighting against the rival Palestinian faction Fatah.
The Fatah-dominated Palestinian Authority, which governs the West Bank, condemned the visit of al-Qaradawi. It is said that his presence is cementing the gap between the two Palestinian factions.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

German Nazi themes opera canceled after public outcry

Nazi themed opera 
By: Sarah Weiss

A new Nazi themed opera began playing in Dusseldorf, Germany this week which created a public firestorm.

Now, the German opera was canceled amid a storm of criticism after it featured performers dressed in Nazi uniform, a Jewish family being massacred and a brutal rape scene.

Members of the audience started walking out of the interpretation of Burkhard C. Kosminski classic "Tannhauser" by Wagner after just 30 minutes, and some in the audience required medical care.

The Opera House in Dusseldorf Rhine said, though it knew that the concert would be "controversial" I did not expect such an extreme reaction.

As we reported earlier, Germany was blasted by several human rights groups after a Nazi themed Wagner opera was opened in Dusseldorf, Germany.

A production of Tannhauser, which officially incorporated Nazi swastikas and what appears to be a gas chamber in the famous opera of Richard Wagner, has provoked outrage in Germany.

The controversial staging of the opera,which traditionally explores the themes of love and salvation, opened at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Dusseldorf on Saturday. The debut drew boos, complaints and prompted audience members to leave, mid show.

The company is considering the possibility of making changes in response to the outrage.
The company confirmed that members of the public "booed and was surprised" by the opening performance on Saturday.

“I think the show is very insensitive to the Jewish community around the world and to the German people. The show should be canceled immediately,” Ralph Dunn, 34, of Berlin, Germany told after learning about the Nazi themed opera.

In addition to the flood of negative public reaction in the debut weekend, some critics have lashed out against the production company, while angry opera goers clashed in an opening night after party.

Jewish community leaders have also expressed horror and outrage after the show.

Woman steals former boyfriend’s sperm, gives birth to his baby without his knowledge

Layne Hardin 
By: Debbie Gross

(Scroll down for video) A man is suing his former girlfriend after she stole his sperm and gave birth to his baby.

The case, which is now in court is complicated and is said to be a first.

Layne Hardin, 44, is suing his former girlfriend Tobie Devall, in a Texas court alleging that she inseminated herself with his sperm without his permission.

It all began about 10 years ago while Hardin was dating Katherine LeBlanc, 40, the mother of his now 12-year-son. Hardin had his sperm frozen in case she ever wanted to have another child. Hardin gave the sperm to a fertility clinic, who is also named in court documents as Obstetrical and Gynecological Associates PLLC and Texas Andrology Services LLC.

Hardin separated from LeBlanc years later, after which he began dating Devall. After he and Devall broke up, Hardin claims Devall walked into Andrology Services sperm bank, asked for and was given Hardin's sperm, which they did without asking any questions.

She then went next door to the affiliated Obstetrical and Gynecological Associated fertility clinic and was inseminated without Hardin’s knowledge.

“This sounds like a spiteful girlfriend’s revenge for being dumped. The woman definitely got back at her former boyfriend, as she brought a child into the world, and now he might have to pay her child support as a result of her theft,” Steven Young, 26, of Houston, Texas told after hearing about the lawsuit.

Hardin's attorney, Cade Bernsen, said his client became aware of the situation when he received a call from Devall letting him know she was pregnant with his child. The boy is now 2-years-old. The man can now be asked to pay child support for his son.

Bernsen said the case is "bizarre" and has the potential to create new Texas law that better protects sperm donation. They are suing for emotional distress and punitive damages.

According to court documents, Devall claims that she and Hardin were together and were planning to have a baby. Deval’s lawyer said: “soon, the jury will hear all the evidence and make the decision based on true facts.”

New skinny Diet Coke vending machine makes its debut in gym

Slender Vendor soda vending machine displayed at a gym  
By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) Are you running on a treadmill trying to lose weight? Just grab a Diet Coke.

A new campaign by Coca-Cola Light displays a redesigned vending machine which measures about 7 inches wide. It dispenses Diet Coke, and is named the "Slender Vendor."

The Coca-Cola brand has launched an advertising campaign around the skinny vending machine which dispenses only Diet Coke. The advertisement shows the vending machine in a gym between two treadmills, where skinny women are seen grabbing and drinking a Diet Coke while working out.

“This is sending the wrong message to people. Diet Coke may not be as fattening as regular Coke but in no way does it help people lose weight,” Nutritionist Linda Johnson, 43, of New York City told after learning about the "Slender Vendor” Diet Coke vending machine.

A while ago, a woman died from drinking too much Coke. As we reported, a young woman died after downing several gallons of Coca-Cola per day, according to a coroner in New Zealand.

The woman who drank up to 10 liters of Coca-Cola a day suffered a heart attack that killed the mother of eight in New Zealand, a coroner has found. Natasha Harris, 30, from Invercargill, died several years ago after her partner Christopher Hodgkinson found her gasping for air while sitting on the toilet.

In results released today, Coroner David Crerar of New Zealand, blamed the extreme intake of Coca-Cola as a factor in her death, a finding that was immediately rebuked by the multinational company. "I think that when all the evidence is considered, if not for the consumption of large amounts of Coca-Cola by Natasha Harris, it is unlikely that she would had died when she died and how he died," Crerar said.

The coroner estimated that Harris drank up to 10 liters of Coca-Cola a day, equivalent to more than 11 times the recommended intake of sugar and more than double the recommended amount of caffeine. Hodgkinson said that the health of his partner had seriously deteriorated in the months before her death.

"She had no energy and felt sick all the time. She got up and vomited in the morning," he said. "She would be very moody and get headaches if she didn’t drink Coca-Cola. She also felt low in energy," he added.

By: David Ross

(Scroll down for video) Never give up hope for love, as one woman who is 106-years-old, proved that one is never too old to find the love of their life.

Marjorie Hemmerde is dating a man 33 years younger, who she met in a nursing home.

Hemmerde is 106-years-old and her boyfriend, Gavin Crawford, is 73-years-old. The two have managed to find love despite their age difference.

Psychic Sylvia Browne caught red handed as a fraud

Sylvia Browne with Montel Williams  
By: Shifra Unger

(Scroll down for video) The psychic who became famous on the Montel Williams show was caught red handed as a fraud.

Psychic Sylvia Browne, was exposed as a fraud after telling a mother that her child was dead, but the so called dead child has been found alive.

Earlier this week we reported that three kidnapped girls were found alive after being held hostage for 10 years in Ohio.

A year after Amanda Berry disappeared in Cleveland, Ohio, her mother Louwana Miller was on "The Montel Williams Show" to talk to Browne about the disappearance of her daughter. Miller was hoping that Browne, with her psychic abilities would be able to tell her what happened to her daughter.

Browne, who has made her career of television psychic readings, told the mother during the show in 2004 that her daughter had died. "She's not alive, honey," Browne told Miller on the show. "Your daughter is not the type that does not call," she added. At that time, Miller told the local media that she believed "98 percent" of what Browne said. Miller died a year later of heart failure.

On Monday, Berry was found alive after she was freed from a house in Cleveland where she and two other missing women were held hostage by a bus driver, for the past decade.

“Many people believe that physics can connect with their loved ones from beyond the grave, it gives them peace knowing their loved who is happy “on the other side”. However, it is easy for anyone to say what the deceased told them. If Browne was wrong about one person who was found alive then we cannot trust her when she claims she spoke to other dead,” Maria Jones, 57, of Cleveland, Ohio told after learning about Browne’s false statement to Berry’s mother, who is no longer alive to meet her daughter Amanda after she was found alive.

This is not the first time that Browne has been criticized for being wrong. In 2003, Browne incorrectly told the parents of missing teenager Shawn Hornbeck, that her son was dead. Nearly four and a half years later, Hornbeck was found alive.

Hornbeck disappeared while riding his bike on October 6, 2002, he was held hostage. On January 12, 2007 he and another missing child were found by authorities in an apartment in Kirkwood, Missouri.

There is a website called "Stop Sylvia Browne," dedicated to publicizing her alleged failures in her predictions.

Lawyer charged after complaining that she can't stand Jewish people

Danielle Morris 
By: Shifra Unger

A lawyer was charged after she dropped an ugly remark in her office in front of other employees against Jews, according to proceedings in London, England.

The lawyer has been accused of discrimination after she blurted out: "I cannot stand the Jewish people," in an angry diatribe at her office.

After a more than three-year investigation, Danielle Morris, 34, has been fined $3,300 by the Solicitors Regulation Authority or SRA and was ordered to pay an additional $6,900 in other costs.
The court issued more disciplinary sanctions, ruling her comments were "stupid, ignorant and malicious.”

Morris was taken to court after a Jewish employee overheard her offensive comments, which apparently came after she was upset that a Jewish man jumped the line at the doctor's office where Morris had taken her child for an appointment.

"'Please do not say that," the employee who heard the comment told Morris.
Morris responded to the complaint by saying: "I do not care, cannot stand them," according to the panel proceedings.
Five days after the incident, the employee of the law firm brought a racial and discrimination lawsuit against Morris.

“As a lawyer she should have known better, that is really all there is to say about this. I am glad that Morris was punished for making her stupid comment,” Sarah Banks, 45, of London, England told after learning about the incident.

Sexy cheerleaders win the right to use Bible verses

Religious cheerleading banners 
By: David Ross

(Scroll down for video) A team of sexy cheerleaders received great news from court, winning the right to use Bible verses for cheerleading banners, according to a new ruling issued by a Texas court.

A judge has ruled that the school cheerleaders of Southeast Texas High can display banners adorned with Bible verses at football matches.

In a summary judgment in a lawsuit filed last year by Kountze high school cheerleaders, the state district judge Steve Thomas ruled Wednesday, that the banners are constitutionally permissible.

In the ruling Thomas states: "The Kountze cheerleaders banners that included religious message and displayed during the 2012 football season were constitutionally permissible. The Establishment Clause or any other law for that matter does not prohibit the use of Bible cheerleading."

The judgment concluded the court case. The lawsuit had been scheduled for trial next month.

Late last year, Thomas granted a preliminary injunction requested by the cheerleaders allowing them to continue displaying religious-themed banners pending the outcome of the trial. Thomas at the time said the district's ban on the practice seemed to violate the rights to freedom of expression.

“If the students and the cheerleaders want to use religious banners I don’t see why the school district is fighting it. It seems like everybody is fine with the religious banners except the leaders of the school district. I think they are pathetic,” Anna Edwards, 35, of Houston, Texas told after learning about the latest ruling.

The lawyer for the school district said that the school is looking to change their policy in order to be able to ban the religious banners, and circumvent the court ruling. The new policy will state that banners are not part of the students public forum and do not represent public speech. That would mean the district would ban the banners again.

the attorney for the cheerleaders said that if the cheerleaders are denied the right to a religious banners he will file another lawsuit.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

World War Two veteran gets his lost dog tag back after 70 years

Willie Wilkins reunited with his lost dog tag 
By: David Ross

A war hero was finally reunited with his lost dog tag nearly 70 years after it went missing.

Carol Wilkins leaned to one side of her father's chair and handed him the little red heart shaped box with a cut that revealed its contents, a bent silver dog tag.

"Oh, Dad, look," Wilkins told her 90-year-old father.

Sixty-nine years after losing his nameplate on the battlefields of southern France, Willie Wilkins was reunited with it Wednesday after a transatlantic effort to return the tag. The effort began over a decade ago in a French backyard and ended with a surprise ceremony in Newark City Hall in New Jersey.

“I am happy for the entire family especially because the man sacrificed his life to fight the evil Nazi regime. Wilkins felt close to the dog tag and was probably devastated when he realized that he lost the tag. Luckily, Wilkins was still alive to be able to be reunited with it,” Sherry Jenkins, 35, of Newark, New Jersey told after learning about Wilkins’ dog tag.

In August 1944, Willie Wilkins was an Army corporal fighting in the Allied invasion of southern France. Wilkins was responsible for removing and identifying the bodies of U.S. soldiers killed and having them buried or transported back to the United States.
At some point during the invasion, Willie Wilkins’ silver dog tag came off his neck.

Willie Wilkins returned to Newark and worked on an assembly line.
Willie Wilkins sometimes talk about his war experience, especially when Carol was young, mentioning that he had lost his dog tags.

In a backyard, 4000 miles away from Newark in Istres, France, Anne-Marie Crespo was working around an olive tree in 2001 and found the dog tag.

Eventually, photos of the dog tag went online, and the family of Wilkins spotted the tag. Proper arrangements were made and the dog tag was returned to Wilkins.

Alexa mannequin 
By: Debbie Gross

(Scroll down for video) A company began selling new bleeding female mannequins meant as a gun shooting target.

The company named the mannequin Alexa, which is a life-size mannequin that resembles a woman. The mannequin is dressed in a white top. The doll retails for just $89.95.

The Alexa mannequin shooting target is part of a series of lifesize zombie mannequins sold by Zombie Industries. The company displayed their products at the convention of the National Rifle Association last week in Houston, Texas.
Other bleeding dolls include life-size mannequins called “terrorist”, “Nazi” and “Rocky”.

“I feel weird looking at these mannequins. I don’t think the company should be selling shooting targets that could be seen as supporting violence against women. There is no need to sell shooting targets in real human form,” Sylvia Bennet, of Hollywood, California told after seeing the mannequins.

The company was criticized because “Rocky” resembled president Obama.
The doll was removed from the display, but apparently was still sold at the convention.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Man claims Michael Jackson sexually abused him as a child for seven years

Wade Robson 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

(Scroll down for video) A man, who previously defended Michael Jackson, now claims to have been sexually abused by the singing sensation for seven years, according to documents filed with a court in California.

A choreographer and television personality who was a key witness in the successful defense of Michael Jackson during his child molestation trial, is seeking permission to file a lawsuit against the singer's estate claiming that the pop superstar sexually abused him as a child. for a period of seven years.

Wade Robson was abused by Jackson during a period of seven years, the choreographer’s attorney, Henry Gradstein, wrote in a statement released Wednesday. The lawyer said that Robson, 30, suffered from a breakdown last year but has not said how much his client is trying to recover from the estate of Jackson.

The sexual abuse allegations have been strongly denied by an attorney of Jackson's estate and criminal defense attorney for the singer, Thomas Mesereau Jr.

“It is very difficult to determine what really went on especially since Jackson is no longer alive. I don’t know if its fair to the Jackson family to be drawn into a new trial long after the passing of the star. I think the man is simply looking for some cash,” Tiffany Kelly, 29, of Los Angeles, California told after learning about the latest court filing against Michael Jackson.

Robson, a choreographer from Australia, has appeared on the "So You Think You Can Dance" show and has worked with Britney Spears and other stars.

"The claim of Robson is outrageous and pathetic," Jackson estate attorney Howard Weitzman wrote in a statement. "This is a young man who has declared at least twice under oath in the past 20 years, and said in interviews that Michael Jackson never did anything inappropriate with him. Now, almost four years after Michael has past away, this sad and less than credible claim has been made. We are confident that the court will see this for what it is," the attorney said.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Boy caught on video throwing sandwich at Australian Prime Minister

Student throwing sandwich at Prime Minister Gillard 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

(Scroll down for video) A student was caught on video throwing a sandwich at the Australian Prime Minister during a visit to school, according to video uploaded to the internet.

Prime Minister Julia Gillard said that she saw the sandwich attack at a school in Queensland as a laughing matter, but offered no special pardon to the kid.

Kyle Thomson, 16, has been suspended for 15 days after being accused of throwing the sandwich, while a group of students mobbed the Prime Minister.

Kyle said that he was not the one throwing the sandwich, and said he was trying to hit the sandwich out of the hand of another student.

"I would like to say I'm sorry to the prime minister," Thomson said during an interview with the prime minister.
Gillard, who was surprised by the call of the college student during the live interview, laughed.

When asked whether she would forgive Kyle, who has been suspended for his actions, Gillard said no.
"I can’t tell the school principal what to do,”
Gillard said.

"I would not want to undermine the authority of the principal," she added.
"I have not seen the sandwich in the air," she said.
"I did see half a sandwich on the floor,” she added.

Kyle was one of the many teenagers who surrounded Julia Gillard during a visit to Marsden State High School, south of Brisbane, yesterday morning.
While speaking to students, the sandwich was launched in the direction of Gillard, flying past her and hitting another student.

A teacher said that Kyle was the one who threw the sandwich and was later suspended for 15 days.
But Kyle has denied the allegations, claiming instead that he tried to stop another student from throwing the sandwich.
"I hit the sandwich out of the boy's hand because he wanted to throw it," he said.

“This silly act of one student has been blown way out of proportion. The sandwich did not even hit the Prime Minister, so she should act like an adult and not like a big baby,” Tracy Brooks, 26, of Melbourne, Australia told after watching the sandwich being thrown on video.

Kyle's mother believes that her son is being unfairly blamed for the incident.
"Kyle is no angel, do not get me wrong, but I think there is more to the story," she said.
She continued by saying that the incident had been blown out of proportion.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Little piece of torn fingernail enables police to file murder charges

Drexell Washington 
By: Eva Fett

(Scroll down for video) A man was nailed by police as being a murderer after police tested a little piece of his torn fingernail, according to a statement released by police in Texas.

Texas Police said Wednesday they overlooked crucial evidence and were able to charge an Austin man with murder only after they tested a small piece of torn fingernail found among the evidence.

The man, Drexell Washington, 21, of Austin, was identified through DNA derived from a small speck of broken fingernail found in the victim's car.

He is accused of shooting and killing Reynaldo Ortega, 19, of Austin during a robbery attempt in the parking lot of an apartment complex. A second man who was with Ortega was wounded.

Detectives examined the car and released the car Ortega's brother the next day. Five days later, six days after the murder, Ortega's brother found the fragment of fingernail as he was cleaning the car, apparently, missed by investigators, police said Wednesday.

DNA analysis connected the fingernail to Washington, police said.
Corrections records show that the police did not have to look far to find Washington, as he was already in the Travis County Jail after being arrested on unrelated drug charges.

“It is just amazing what a little piece of torn fingernail can achieve these days. It is even more surprising that the murder victim’s brother was able to find the torn fingernail while cleaning the car. I don’t know anyone who can spot a little piece of torn fingernail, it is like finding a needle in a haystack,” Connie Watson, 23, of Tempe, Arizona told after learning what led police to arrest Washington.

Washington was charged with murder and remained in jail Wednesday in lieu of $500,000 bail, records show.
Austin police Sergeant Brian Miller said detectives had learned a lesson from the incident and it will not happen again.
"It's a bit worrying that we missed the fingernail," he said.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Specifically, Microsoft said that an Outlook user uploaded about 14 images of child pornography from an account with the user name Robert Dickey.
The investigators tracked the IP address of the computer to Dickey's house in Southeast Washington, the complaint said.

“This guy is one sick dude. It is heartbreaking that it took so long for police officers to get on his trail. Who know how many children this doctor already sexually assaulted. I hope no parent will ever let their child near this sick old pervert,” Dawn James, 20, of Washington, D.C. told after learning about doctor Dickey.

Dickey’s grandchildren, one 9-year-old and the other a baby under one year old, lives with him in the same house, the complaint said.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Man breaks out from prison using just a spoon

Oleg Topalov

(Scroll down for video) Out of all the tools prisoners use to escape from prison, one man, used a seemingly easy tool which is available to every prisoner, to break free, according to a statement released by prison officials in Russia.

The man, used only a spoon, to break free from one of the most infamous prisons in Russia.
33-year-old Oleg Topalov escaped from the Matrosskaya Tishina prison, apparently by the use of a single spoon to dig a hole in the ceiling of his cell.

He was only the fourth person in 20 years to successfully escape from the Matrosskaya Tishina prison. Russian investigators have blamed Topalov’s escape on prison staff, who said they engaged in a "dishonest or careless attitude to their work which Topalov exploited."

Topalov, who was convicted of two murders and arms trafficking, used the spoon to create a hole in the ceiling of the cell, opened a hole in the vent, climbed to the roof of the prison, and escaped over the fence perimeter of the building.

"Since the building is old and run down, Topalov had no difficulty in extending the vent shaft, through which he reached the roof of the prison," Russian Federal Penitentiary Service representative Kristina Belousova said. "Using sheets tied one to another, Tapalov managed to go over the wall and jump over the fence, running away," the spokesperson added.

One witness said that Topalov did not use sheets, but rope he purchased from the prison psychiatric ward.
Prison officials described Topalov as "mentally unstable and susceptible to escape," and offered an award for his capture.

“This is definitely one daring prison escape. I don’t believe that Topalov is mentally disabled as Russian officials claim, as a don’t think a mentally disabled man can escape from a maximum security prison with just a spoon. He must be pretty smart. Topalov's daring prison escape can now be turned into a movie,” Peggy Ramirez, 51, of Tucson, Arizona told after learning about Topalov’s prison escape.

Interestingly, under Russian law, Topalov only faces up to four years in jail if caught.
Reports said Topalov shared a cell with about seven other prisoners, although it is unclear what role, if any, they played in his daring escape.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
