VIDEO: House Mysteriously Shows Up on Man’s Property

You’d think you’d know about all of the houses on your property. 

But a man in Canada had a surprise when he took a trip around his 320 acres of land: a house that he didn’t remember being there before.

So Patrick Maze did what anyone would do. He put a photo of the house on Facebook, asking if anyone knew how the house got on his property, Huffington Post reported.

It was a long shot, but eventually worked out and the woman who owned the structure came forward, CBC reported.

Brenda Robertson responded, “That’s my house.”

Robertson explained that the building was being taken to Winnipeg, when it was stopped by SaskPower because of permit issues. Robertson, prior to the post, had no idea where her house was. She thanked Maze for posting it and worked to get the house off the land quickly, Huffington Post reported.

Maze said that his tenant wasn’t currently using the land, but at the same time didn’t want to be held responsible if something happened to the house.

Could DNA finally prove, disprove Loch Ness Monster’s existence?

Loch Ness Monster: Fact or Fiction?

A scientist from New Zealand may have a way to prove that the Loch Ness Monster is real. 

Neil Gemmell is leading a team that will start testing the body of water for genetic material left behind by the animals that live in the ecosystem, the BBC reported.

His team will be at the site in a few weeks, working to collect small pieces of skin and scales from the lake.

While Gemmell himself doesn’t believe in Nessie’s existence, he said there could be creatures that still haven’t been discovered, the BBC reported.

“There’s absolutely no doubt that we will find new stuff. And that’s very exciting,” Gemmell told the BBC

“While the prospect of looking for evidence of the Loch Ness monster is the hook to this project, there is an extraordinary amount of new knowledge that we will gain from the work about organisms that inhabit Loch Ness - the UK’s largest freshwater body,” Gemmell explained.

The technique is called eDNA and has been used for tracking marine life, Reuters reported.

The myth of Nessie dates back to the 6th century when Irish monk St. Columba banished a “water beast” to the River Ness, Reuters reported. In 1934, the famous photo dubbed the “surgeon’s photo” was taken. The photo was found to be a hoax six decades later when it was discovered that the creature was, in fact, a toy submarine with a sea monster model attacked.

In 2003, the BBC financed a research project that mapped the entire lake using 600 sonar beams, Reuters reported.

The results of the latest study are expected to be released in January.

Pendergast was recently visiting his sick father in Newfoundland, who ask him to get a soda at a store, the BBC reported. He bought a ticket at the local gas station on a whim. The next morning, he found out he was a new millionaire, CNN reported. He then called his wife, who hopped on a plane to Newfoundland to help her husband cash in on his newfound money, CNN reported.

The money, the couple said, will be used mostly to help put the pieces back together, including finishing construction on their new home, CBC reported.

“Our rebuild should be finished in the next two to four months, so this is going to go a long way towards that,” Pendergast told CBC.

The family, including the couple’s five sons, is also going to take a family vacation, CBC reported.

But there is one thing the lucky winner always wanted that will now become a reality.

“I have always wanted a Mustang, and I will finally have one, I’m 100% sure of that,” Pendergast told CNN.

Paris knife attack: Chechnya president identifies assailant, friend of suspect detained

Paris Knife Attack Leaves 1 Dead, 4 Injured

Update 3:15 p.m EDT Sunday: A jihadist monitoring group says a video released by the Islamic State’s Amaq news agency appears to show the suspected Paris knife attacker pledging allegiance to the group’s leader, according to The Associated Press. The person in the video has their nose and mouth covered. It is not clear if the 2-and-a-half minute video is in fact the attacker.

Earlier, Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov identified the alleged attacker as Khazmat Azimov. Azimov was born in the Russian republic of Chechnya, but was a French citizen.

“I consider it necessary to state that all responsibility for the fact that Khazmat Azimov went on the road of crime lies completely with the authorities of France,” Kadyrov said. “He was only born in Chechnya, and his growing up, the formation of his personality, his views and persuasions occurred in French society.”

The suspect killed one person and injured four others. Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said the four injured people are out of life-threatening danger, The AP reported.

According to a French judicial official not authorized to speak publicly about the incident told The AP the suspect was on a police watchlist for radicalism.

Update 10:45 a.m. EDT Sunday: The Associated Press reported that the parents of the suspected attacker who killed one person and injured four others are still being questioned, according to a French judicial official. A friend of the assailant has also been taken in for questioning.

The alleged 20 year old attacker was identified by Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov as as Khasan Azimov, according to The AP.

Kadyrov said he had been informed the attacker had French citizenship and had a Russian passport until he was 14. 

Interior Ministry spokesman Frederic de Lanouvelle told The Associated Press the alleged attacker had no history of criminal activity or arrests and did not know the victims.

Update 2:49 a.m. EDT Sunday: The attacker who killed a 29-year-old man and hurt four others Saturday in Paris was born in Chechnya but “had French nationality,” The Associated Press reported early Sunday, citing an unnamed judicial official.

The official said the suspect, who was killed by police who responded to the knife attack, was born in 1997, according to the AP.

His parents have been detained for questioning, the official said.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack.

ORIGINAL STORY: Police responded Saturday evening to reports of a man stabbing people near the Paris Opera.

One person was killed and four others injured in the melee, French authorities said. The suspect targeted the five people, killing one, seriously injuring two and leaving the other two with minor injuries. 

 

The attacker, who has not been identified, died, officials said. The reason for the attack is still unknown. 

The Islamic State group’s news agency said the suspect was a “soldier” and has taken claim for the attack. 

“France is once again paying the price of blood, but will not cede an inch to enemies of freedom,” President Emmanuel Macron said in response to the terror group’s claim.

 

The area has been contained and the situation is under control, according to Paris police.

 

Eyewitnesses shared their account of the incident on social media.
