Indiana Doctor Kills Wife, Himself Hours After Wedding Reception

Indiana doctor George “Scott” Samson reportedly killed his new bride, Kelly Ecker Samson, at their mansion the very same night he married her.

Samson also took his own life in a stunning turn of events.

It’s far from clear as to exactly what sparked the murder-suicide, but shortly after guests cleared out of their home, Kelly Ecker, 50, called 911 three times.

  1. In the first call, she screamed, “He’s beating the s–t out of me!”
  2. In the second 911 call, someone answered but got disconnected.
  3. In the third, Kelly screams, “Oh my god!” and shots were fired.

Within minutes, she and her new husband were dead.

Kelly was found dead, shot twice in her 10-year-old son’s bedroom. George Samson was found dead of a self-inflicted gun shot wound in the basement.

Kelly’s son was home at the time of the shooting, as was an unidentified elderly couple; it is believed that the boy heard and saw his mother being shot.

Friends are baffled as to what could’ve gone so horribly wrong, although some reportedly left the wedding reception due to the newlyweds arguing.

The couple had just moved into the home this summer.

The wedding and reception took place on the grounds, with the tent celebrating the affair still up as police swarmed the property following the tragedy.

Vigo County Chief Deputy Sheriff Clark Cottom said:

“The investigation has revealed that there was a verbal argument between the couple toward the end of the reception, which carried over to the after party at the couple’s home.”

“Shortly after the last guest had left at around 1:17 a.m., Kelly Ecker Samson called 911 reporting that her husband had threatened to kill her.”

“There were a total of three very brief 911 calls,” the law enforcement official said, “which in the first two the caller disconnected.”

Tony Stewart Cleared in Kevin Ward Jr. Death, Ward High on Weed During Crash, Officials Say

NASCAR star Tony Stewart will not face criminal charges resulting from the death of Kevin Ward Jr., who was struck and killed by Stewart in a race this summer.

A grand jury investigating the case decided earlier today to close the potential case against Stewart, citing no evidence of legal wrongdoing on his part.

On the night of his death, Kevin Ward Jr. was killed by Stewart’s car, a tragedy by any measure, but one that many felt also may have been a criminal act.

Ward got out of his car and aggressively moved toward Stewart’s vehicle, which hit him seconds later and was seen in a video that shocked the sports world.

There was suspicion after the accident that Stewart was angry with Ward Jr. over an incident earlier in the race and may have intentionally swerved into him.

He denied this, and apparently the grand jury agreed, determining that it was nothing more than an accident and declining to pursue a case against him.

Investigators claimed to have “enhanced video” of the crash that killed Ward. Whatever it included that the viral clip did not, it didn’t sway the grand jury.

Officials say the footage, raw or enhanced, did not show Tony making any sudden or suspicious moves on the track before the collision with Ward.

Investigators also say that experts reenacted the crash and evaluated factors such as the speed of Tony’s car, reaction times, distance and more.

None of that suggested any foul play, ill intent or even anything out of the ordinary regarding Stewart’s driving, no matter what bad blood may have existed.

Officials also say Kevin Ward Jr. was high on marijuana at the time of his death, though this did not impact whether or not to pursue a case against Stewart.

Chicago Fire Season 3 Episode 1 Recap: Who Died?

Chicago Fire Season 2 ended with a BOOM.

In a very literal sense, that is, as a building exploded and collapsed with members of the station inside.

So viewers tuned in to Chicago Fire Season 3 Episode 1 on the edges of their seats, having been told this summer by producers that a significant character really did die in the incident. 

So, who ended up as a corpse on last night’s premiere? SHAY.

Guess they weren’t kidding about it being a major character, huh?

This raises the stakes for episodes to come, as Chicago Fire has made it clear that nearly anyone can be killed off at nearly any time.

The episode itself picked up six weeks after the tragedy, with Severide MIA from work and Dawson completely closed off and acting distant.

Things with Casey are okay, but she asks that he propose again so that memory isn’t tainted by Shay’s death.

“The answer’s yes. The answer’s always yes,” Dawson tells her man, who vows: “I’m going to do it right.”

We later learn that Casey had attended a therapy session where she broke down in tears because she traded placed with Shay on that fateful, terrible day.

Severide, meanwhile, is eventually tracked down by Casey… in the woods, shirtless. He believes the firehouse is cursed and miserable and he needs to hear a speech about the lives these fighters DO save before Severide returns home to go through his roommate’s stuff.

Casey later invites Severide to move in with him and Dawson for a bit. That should be interesting.

Also of note:

  • Herrmann, motivated by Shay, chooses to franchise Molly’s.
  • As a gesture of sympathy, Mouch invites Boden his new wife on double dates with him and Chicago P.D.‘s Trudy. Fun times!
  • Newhouse learns that Mill’s paternal grandfather is residing near the city, prompting Mills to track down one of his young relatives

Quite a premiere, no? Watch Chicago Fire online via TV Fanatic if you need to catch up and sound off now: Will you miss Shay?

Happy Birthday, George R.R. Martin: Here Are 7 Times You Made Us Hate You!

Today is George R.R. Martin’s 66th birthday, and he certainly has a lot to celebrate.

He’s one of the world’s best-selling authors, there’s a wildly successful television series based on his work, and he makes life miserable for millions of people on a regular basis.

Yes, if you’re one of the 18 million people who watched Game of Thrones last season, you might hate GRRM even though you’ve never actually read his work.

And we’re right there with you. On countless occasions, Martin has ripped our hearts out and cast them aside like Theon Greyjoy’s severed wang:

Bran's Winterfell Fall


When a lovable kid gets paralyzed early in the story, you know the guy telling tale isn’t gonna spare your feelings.

But like a handlebar mustache on a hipster’s lip, our hate is thoroughly ironic.

We hate George because we so deeply love the world that he’s created with his A Song of Ice and Fire books that the death of even a minor character can feel like a real-life tragedy.

Based on his interviews, we know that Martin loves nothing more than shocking Game of Thrones fans with moments like Ned Stark’s beheading or Oberyn Martell’s eye-popping demise (retroactive spoiler alert if you’re behind on the story).

So for his 66th name day, we can’t think of a better present than to tell George that we truly love his ability to make us hate him.

So relax and enjoy some meat and mead, Mr. Martin. Then hurry up and finish the damn books.

Joan Rivers Dead at 81; Daughter Confirms Comic Legend’s Passing in Statement

Joan Rivers has passed away at the age of 81. The comedian had been fighting for her life since she stopped breathing during a surgical procedure last week.

R.I.P. Joan Rivers (1933-2014)


R.I.P. Joan Rivers (1933-2014). She will never be forgotten.

The one-of-a-kind star “passed peacefully at 1:17 p.m. surrounded by family and close friends,” Joan’s only daughter, Melissa Rivers, said in a statement.

“My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.”

Rivers reportedly died of cardiac arrest this afternoon.

She was admitted to New York’s Mt. Sinai hospital August 28 after she stopped breathing during a procedure on her vocal cords at a New York Clinic.

In the ensuing days, Rivers was placed in a medically-induced coma to assess her condition, then placed on and subsequently taken off life support.

The petite blonde firebrand won’t be remembered for the events of the past week, but for the pioneering confessional female comic persona she embodied.

Often lampooning her personal life (and others’), she brought a rare gravitas to gigs from the The Tonight Show to Fashion Police over more than five decades.

Joan had and did it all, from talk shows, Vegas engagements, and bestselling nonfiction books, to award shows, TV commentary and best of all, standup comedy.

Edgy and never afraid of being politically incorrect, she always stirred up controversy in what became an increasingly politically correct world since she started out.

Back in the ’60s, Rivers paved the way for comics of the female gender to be every bit as outrageous, outlandish and hilarious as men, with no qualms about it.

Her life was also marked by the tragedy, specifically her husband Edgar Rosenberg’s 1987 suicide, which was played out in the media for months.

Rivers and her daughter with Rosenberg starred in the reality/improv comedy show Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best? for WE TV and were very close.

Joan and Melissa Rivers have been fixtures on E! and other channels as hosts of awards ceremonies arrivals (the Oscars, Golden Globes, and others) since 1995.

Joan Hosts the Tonight Show


Joan was a frequent guest and fill-in host on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show. She and Carson never spoke again after she launched a rival late night show.

Ripped Jake Gyllenhaal Spotted Out And About In NYCCheck out Jake Gyllenhaal! He has done some serious bulking up. This physical transformation is for a role, of course: he’s going to play a boxer in the movie ‘Southpaw.’ RELATED: Jake Gyllenhaal personifies ambition overload in ‘Nightcrawler.’

‘Sons of Anarchy’ creator Kurt Sutter wrote the script, and Antoine Fuqua will direct. ‘Southpaw’ is about a welterweight boxer who is experiencing professional success as a boxer while his personal life is falling apart.

Jake might have just wrapped shooting; it was reportedly scheduled to film this summer and wrap in Pittsburgh by early August. These shots were taken in New York City. Jake may be enjoying some rest after spending the summer working. He needs to hit the beach with that bod- LOL. He might as well flaunt it while he’s got it, right?

Insiders tell TMZ that Adams passed away of an apparent heart attack while on vacation with his wife and two children. They had been on an extended three-month holiday when the tragedy struck.

Adams had reportedly been sober for months and had no history of heart problems.

The extreme athlete had been in and out of prison since the early 1980s on a variety of drug charges.

This trip represented the first time he was permitted to leave the United States in two decades. We send our condolences to his friends and loved ones.

Rush Limbaugh Blasts “Despicable” Liberal Media for Twisting Robin Williams Comments Around

You won’t believe this, but Rush Limbaugh is very unhappy with the liberal media.

On Tuesday, in response to Robin Williams’ suicide, Limbaugh focused on the actor’s political affiliation and seemed to imply that Williams killed himself largely because he was a Democrat.

“What is the left’s worldview in general?” the radio host asked. “If you had to attach not a philosophy but an attitude to a leftist worldview, it’s one of pessimism and darkness, sadness.

“They’re never happy, are they? They’re always angry about something. No matter what they get, they’re always angry.”

Limbaugh then pointed to three actor friends of Williams’ who had died young and said that the Oscar winner could never get over “the guilt that they died and he didn’t.”

The conservative blowhard came under fire for these comments, but Limbaugh didn’t back down today on his program.

Instead, he blame the media for twisting his words all around.

Said Limbaugh:

“All of these low-rent, despicable, irresponsible, pathetic, so-called media watchdogs on the left are trying to make it sound like I said that Robin Williams gave up because he was a liberal and is hopelessly doomed to misery and despair because that’s what liberals are devoted to.”

But Limbaugh insists his original remarks were focused on the way Williams’ death was being covered, as opposed to the death itself.

“What I did yesterday was express some real concern over the fact that they’re glorifying this,” Limbaugh said of the media. “I was worried about the coverage of all this leading to copycats.”

Mork (Mork & Mindy)


The role that started it all. Robin Williams starred as an alien on the late 1970s sitcom Mork & Mindy.

Another conservative commentator, Shepard Smith, apologized after he implied on air that Williams was a coward for committing suicide.

Meanwhile, this awesome sports anchor found a different way to react to the tragedy:
