February 3rd, 2019 Rain drops streak across the sunroof of my LYFT. I find it peaceful watching them roll across the glass. I’m on my way to LAX; final destination, Vietnam. In similar fashion to Paris, it’s snuck up on me. I’ve been too busy being lost in the noise of life. I spent all […]

A DUNDEE monster threatened to gouge his lover’s eye out with a fork so “no guy would look at her again” as part of a terrifying murder-suicide threat. Bruce Burry, 36, told Lorraine Foy he was going to kill her then himself, pressing a fork against her face and threatening to blind her. Burce Burry subjected his partner to a terrifying ordeal The brute then wiped his own blood across her face in a bid to trick cops into thinking he had attacked her in self defence. Burry subjected Ms Foy to the horrific ordeal at her home in the city last October. When cops arrived, the cowardly thug fled through the loft and onto the roof, where he commenced a three hour siege hurling bricks at police cars below. Fiscal depute Stewart Duncan told Dundee Sheriff Court: “The accused was lying on the sofa falling asleep and the complainer told him to get up and go to bed. Alesha MacPhail murder trial: Teenage accused says he ‘could never’ rape and kill a child because it ‘would ruin his life’ “He immediately started shouting at her and was right in her face while shouting. “She told him to ‘shut up’ and he grabbed her arms and squeezed them, causing bruises.” Burry grabbed a knife and held it to his throat, saying he was going to kill himself and blame it on Miss Foy. He then grabbed her by the neck and said: “I’m not leaving this house tonight and neither are you – the two of us will be dead.” He threw her on to the bed, restraining her with his body and knees, and said: “I’m away to kill you first then I’m going to kill myself.” The fiscal said: “The accused put his foot against her back and pulled her tightly. He let go of her and she tried to run to the stairs but he caught her.” He then pressed a fork against her face below her eye and said: “I’ll take your eye out with this and no guy will ever look at you again.” Brutal Burry then wiped blood from cuts on his hands across her face and told her it was so he could claim self defence. [article-rail-topic title=”MORE CRIME NEWS” term_id=”9128″ posts_number=”6″ /] Burry again pushed her onto the bed but she kicked him off, opened a window and shouted: “Help!” Burry, a prisoner at HMP Perth, pleaded guilty on indictment to charges of assault to injury, behaving in a threatening or abusive manner, breaching a bail curfew, culpable and reckless conduct and possessing a knife. All of the offences were committed last year at an address in Harlow Place, Dundee, and at police HQ in Dundee’s Bell Street. Sheriff Alastair Carmichael deferred sentence until next month for a psychiatric report and remanded Burry in custody meantime.

While “Bohemian Rhapsody” lost at the Costume Designer Awards on Tuesday, it still ended up winning the most precursor prizes of the eight Best Picture nominees at the Oscars. This biopic of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury won with four (actors, film editors, sound editors and sound mixers) of the nine guilds at which it contended. It lost with the art directors, costume designers, makeup artists/hairstylists, producers and visual effects wizards. Two of its Academy Awards rivals for the top award — “Black Panther” and “The Favourite” — did win over the costume designers. These victories in the fantasy and period film races respectively brought their overall hauls to three apiece. “Black Panther” had previously prevailed with the actors and art directors while “The Favourite” scored with the art directors and film editors. They are now tied with “Green Book,” which had wins with the actors, casting directors and producers. “Crazy Rich Asians,” which was snubbed by the Oscars, also won with four guilds: art directors, casting directors, costume designers and hairstylists.
