Bicycle club helps local woman honor firefighter brother who died on 9/11

NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. – A Northeast Florida woman is remembering her older brother who lost his life on Sept. 11, 2001.

Thomas Gambino Jr. was a New York City firefighter for nearly 30 years before being killed at the World Trade Center during the attacks.

He was one of the first firefighters to respond to the World Trade Center and one of 343 firefighters killed that day.

Paying tribute to those lost on this day 20 years ago does not get easier, his family said.

“Pain does not go away it’s the same as day one, your focus though is redirected,” Valerie Gambino said.

Valerie and Laurie Gambino lost their brother on Sept. 11.

“The last contact he was on the 78th floor,” Valerie Gambino said.

Although Nassau County Fire and Rescue Battalion Chief Jeff Dodd did not know Thomas, they still share a common bond.

“There is a brotherhood and sisterhood that comes with the fire department no matter what county or what state you’re in so our hearts go out to those families still today,” Dodd said.

Thomas’ body was never found, but his helmet was recovered in the rubble. It’s now in his family’s possession.

Valerie made a promise to honor her big brother.

“When he died I made a promise to do something to give back in the same manner. It took 10 years but I found cycling and I wound up with a veteran group who used cycling as a means of rehab and that’s where my journey began in recovery,” Valerie Gambino said.

That program, called Project Hero Hub Jacksonville, a group Valerie now represents.

More than a dozen bicyclists with that group and North Florida Bicycle Club riding 33 miles in the Project Hero 9/11 Memorial Ride.

“By helping others it kind of helps that pain and it keeps my brother’s spirit alive,” Valerie Gambino said.

Remains of missing New Hampshire woman believed found near submerged car after 43 years

The remains of a New Hampshire woman who mysteriously vanished 43 years ago were believed to have been found near a submerged car last week, investigators said.

Alberta Leeman, of Gorham, N.H, went missing on July 26, 1978, while driving her 1972 Pontiac LeMans. She was 63 years old. Her disappearance is not considered suspicious, New Hampshire State Police (NHSP) said in a statement posted Friday on Facebook.

SEARCH CONTINUES FOR MISSING IDAHO BOY, 5, WHO DISAPPEARED NEAR HOME NEARLY 2 WEEKS AGO

After decades of uncertainty surrounding what happened to Leeman, investigators believe they found some answers 14 feet below the surface of the Connecticut River in Lancaster.

“The vehicle has apparently been in the Connecticut River for decades and was recently found by NH Fish & Game utilizing their specialized technology,” NHSP said, adding that human remains were also found.

The circumstances surrounding how the vehicle ended up in the river remain under investigation.

The state’s Fish and Game Law Enforcement Division said in a statement that one of its conservation officers, Joe Canfield, took an interest Leeman’s mysterious disappearance. 

After learning about Leeman’s case, Canfield used the agency’s regularly scheduled ROV/SONAR training sessions to focus searches on areas of the river he believed had a high probability of turning up clues.

The state's Game and Fish division located a submerged  car that matched Leeman's Pontiac in the Connecticut River. Human remains found within the car have yet to be positively identified.

During a recent training mission, the sonar team located what appeared to be a submerged vehicle, the agency said. A subsequent search on Thursday matched the license plate of the submerged vehicle to Leeman’s Pontiac.

Investigators believe the vehicle had been submerged in the Connecticut River since July 1978.

While the human remains found near the submerged vehicle have yet to be positively identified, Leeman’s family told the New Hampshire Union Leader that they are grateful for the closure brought to their loved one’s case.

“You never give up,” her daughter, Nancy McLain, told the paper. “She’s at peace, and when they get her we’re going to take care of her with my dad.”

Woman charged with speeding, striking police vehicle south of Dewey

A Magnolia woman faces charges after police said she crashed into a Delaware State Police vehicle July 18 south of Dewey Beach.

Angela Robinson, 44, was driving a 2017 Lexus ES350 at 3:10 a.m. going northbound in the left lane of Route 1 near Conquest Road when she struck a fully marked Delaware State Police Tahoe operated by an 11-year veteran who was also driving in the left lane, said Sr. Cpl. Jason Hatchell of the Delaware State Police.

Hatchell said Robinson was traveling at a high rate of speed when she struck the rear of the state police Tahoe, causing the Lexus to exit the roadway. The Lexus slid through the grass center median, rotated counterclockwise about 90 degrees, and came to a rest in the median, Hatchell said. As a result of the impact, he said, the state police Tahoe was violently pushed forward until coming to rest in the northbound shoulder of Route 1. The trooper and Robinson were the sole occupants in their respective vehicles. The trooper was transported to Beebe Medical Center for nonlife-threatening injuries.

Robinson was not injured as a result of the collision. During the investigation, Hatchell said, police determined Robinson was operating her vehicle under the influence. She was transported to Troop 7 where she was charged with second-degree vehicular assault, driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, driving a vehicle at unreasonable or imprudent speed, and failure to have insurance identification in possession. She was arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court 3 and committed to to Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution in default of $3,300 cash bond.

The northbound lanes of Route 1 were closed for about three hours while the collision was investigated and the roadway was cleared.

Boyfriend of woman found shot to death in wrecked car is charged with murder

Prosecutors have formally charged Terence Vos, a parolee and alleged gang member, of fatally shooting his girlfriend before crashing the car they were in on I-80. (Salt Lake City Police Department)

SALT LAKE CITY — Prosecutors have formally charged a parolee accused of fatally shooting his girlfriend, crashing the car they were in on I-80, and then tossing parts of a gun from an overpass in May.

Terence Trent Vos, 31, faces a charge of aggravated murder, a first-degree felony and capital offense, in the death of Shandon Nicole Scott, 32.

Troopers arrived at the scene of the crash just before 3 a.m. on May 1 to find Vos “running around the vehicle” and noted he “would not calm down,” according to charging documents filed Monday. Detectives found the wounded Scott in the car and spotted her ID, purse and credit cards scattered along the side of the freeway.

An autopsy found Scott had been shot 12 times, including in the heart and right lung. At a vigil after her death, friends of Scott described Vos as abusive toward her.

No attorney was listed for Vos in court records as of Monday. He’s being held in the Utah State Prison.

While police were attempting to revive Scott, Vos ran away and was apprehended a short time later, prosecutors say. He allegedly told police his girlfriend “had been shot and he was trying to take her to the hospital.” He showed officers where the shooting happened, pointed out a shell casing and a pool of blood, and said he couldn’t remember what he’d done with the gun, the charges say.

Another driver who saw the crashed car and pulled over to help told police he had seen Vos get out of the car and start “running all over the place while saying that they got shot.” Vos threw something over the freeway wall, according to the driver, and unsuccessfully tried to take his car.

Vos is a former Public Enemy No. 1 of the Salt Lake Metro Gang Unit. He has been arrested in the past in several shootings in Salt Lake City, and was twice convicted of discharging a gun from the freeway in 2006.

Vos was granted parole last year, but a warrant was issued for his arrest on Feb. 3, according to records from the Utah Board of Pardons and Parole.

Prosecutors have requested he be held without bail, saying he’s a flight risk and danger to the public. They have not indicated whether Vos wrecked the vehicle on purpose.

Unified police have said Scott was shot at a townhome complex at 700 East and 2700 South just moments before police responded to the crash.

Neighbors reported hearing pounding about 2:45 a.m. and hearing a man and woman fighting, with the woman screaming and pleading with someone not to hurt her before gunshots rang out, the charges say.

Later, in a phone call he made from jail, Vos mentioned having a fight with someone before saying “I don’t
