An internal investigation is underway amid the search for a Chicago inmate, who police say was wrongfully released from jailed after he promised another inmate money to swap identities. Authorities are searching for 21-year-old Jahquez Scott, who was wrongfully released from a Chicago jail. He was being held on a $50,000 bond for unlawful use of a weapon. He allegedly promised 28-year-old Quinton Henderson $1,000 in exchange for his identity. Henderson, originally booked on drug charges, was scheduled to be released Saturday. Instead, Scott used Henderson’s full name and personal information to pose as the other man and leave jail, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s Office. Scott was wearing a face mask at the time. The sheriff’s office was ordered by a federal judge to provide face masks for all inmates who are quarantined for any reason amid the coronavirus pandemic. Jail staff realized something was wrong when the real Henderson came to provide information for his discharge and his paperwork was missing, the sheriff’s office said. An internal investigation was underway Tuesday evening. Scott was being held on a $50,000 bond for unlawful use of a weapon. He was going to be placed on electronic monitoring if he made bond. Henderson is no longer due to leave jail. He was ordered held without bond on charges of violating the bond on his original narcotics case, according to the sheriff’s office. He faces additional charges of helping an inmate escape.

Guinea pigs were once sacrificed wearing earrings and necklaces and wrapped like sushi. Lidio Valdez, an archaeologist from the Institute of Andean Studies, made a surprising discovery in Peru when he came across 100 dead guinea pigs that had been sacrificed by the Incan people during the 16th century. The rodents, which had clearly been a part of some sort of ritual, were adorned with earrings and necklaces made from colorful string. "Some were even wrapped in cotton rugs like a sushi roll," wrote Gizmodo of the findings, which were published in the International Journal of Osteoarchaeology in 2019.

A Florida Woman was arrested on Saturday for “spitting on groceries during the COVID-19 pandemic,” according to police who say the suspect also threatened to beat up customers at a Publix supermarket. Investigators say that 58-year-old Sharon Turpin caused a disturbance inside and outside the store in a suburban Tampa mall. Turpin had previously been trespassed from the Largo Mall in 2014. Turpin, cops say, was spotted Saturday spitting on merchandise at Publix, where she also threatened to beat up customers in a store bathroom and argued with a manager. When police subsequently located Turpin outside Publix, she allegedly provided them with a false name and date of birth. She was subsequently identified and booked into jail on a pair of misdemeanor charges. Turpin is locked up in lieu of $400 bond. Arrest affidavits do not indicate how much damage Turpin caused during her spitting spree at Publix. (https://bit.ly/2LWVOQ7)
