Texas Deputies Add To Chupacabra Legend

The legend of a mythical blood-sucking animal roaming South Texas gained new life over the weekend as two DeWitt County sheriff's deputies spotted what they said they believe was the creature.
Video: Chupacabra Caught On Camera?

Cpl. Brandon Riedel was training a new deputy on Friday when he said they saw something running down a dirt path along fence lines.

"You need to record something like this because it's not everyday you find something that looks like this, running around out in the middle of the county," he said.The short-legged, hairless animal had a long snout that looked like a coyote, Riedel said. But he admitted he wasn't convinced.

"You know, it's just kind of one of those things to hear about and talk about, but to actually see something on video that may actually be a live one, that's pretty amazing," DeWitt County Sheriff Jode Zavesky said.

Friday's sighting isn't the first time locals believe they've seen the mythical animal, which is rumored to attack livestock and pets. Stories about the chupacabra go back to the 1990s.

And a rancher in 2007 found a dead animal near the town of Cuero that was thought to be a chupacabra.

Biologists at Texas State University-San Marcos tested DNA taken from the remains of the animal and found it to be a coyote."It's like every good urban legend," Erik McCowan said. "Maybe it's better to just think it is the chupacabra and just leave it at that."

Tallan "T-Man" Latz

Tallan "T-Man" Latz8-year-old guitar wiz has reason to sing the blues

ELKHORN, Wis. (AP) -- An 8-year-old Wisconsin guitar wiz says the problems he's had trying to play legally will make him a better blues artist.

Tallan "T-Man" Latz has been playing since he was 5 years old. He's played with Les Paul and performed in bars and nightclubs, including Chicago's House of Blues.

That's before an anonymous tipster complained to state officials that child labor laws bar Tallan from playing in taverns and clubs. And before his booking agent got an anonymous death threat.

Earlier, the boy's father says he heard a local guitarist say Tallan shouldn't be in a bar and that he was going to turn him in. The man denies badmouthing the youngster.

Tallan can still play at festivals. But the boy's father is asking a legislator for help changing the law.

Mark David Chapman Conjugal Visits

John Lennon's killer Mark Chapman has conjugal visits

JOHN Lennon's killer has been enjoying conjugal visits with his wife for the past 16 years.

Mark David Chapman has been visited at least once a year by his wife Glorio Hiroko Chapman since 1992, reports say.

Chapman murdered the former Beatle in New York on December 8, 1980. He has been held in the Attica Correctional Facility, New York, since 1981.

Under a "family reunion" scheme, Chapman gets to spend up to 44 hours at a time with his wife in a special unit.

Gloria, who was married to Chapman at the time he killed Lennon and who still lives in Hawaii, visits at least once a year, sources said.

There are no cameras or guards inside the units, New York's Daily News reports.

The news comes during the week that Chapman made another request to the authorities to be released on parole. It was denied, and he will remain in jail for at least two more years.

He has been turned down four times since he became eligible in 2000.

Lennon's widow Yoko Ono had notified the parole board that she is still opposed to Chapman's release.

In 2000, Ono wrote to the board telling them about her concerns for her safety if Chapman was ever released.

"Myself and John's two sons would not feel safe for the rest of out lives," she wrote.

"With his one act of violence (Chapman) managed to change my whole life, devastate his sons, and bring deep sorrow and fear to the world."

Because of his notoriety, Chapman is kept in a unit apart from the general population.
