Federal and local police investigating an alleged hate crime in Madison, Wisconsin have closed their investigation, admitting they have found no evidence that the supposed victim was attacked at all.
18-year old Althea Bernstein claimed that she was attacked by four “classic Wisconsin frat boys” while driving near the state capital at 1AM in late June. Bernstein claimed that the assailants- who supposedly called her a racial slur-doused her in lighter fluid before setting her on fire while sitting inside her car, and that she patted out the flames after driving away from her attackers.
Madison Police confirmed that “after an exhaustive probe, detectives were unable to corroborate or locate evidence consistent with what was reported” in a Friday morning statement. However, they’re declining to recommend that Bernstein be charged with filing a false police report.
A Wisconsin federal prosecutor investigating the incident went even further, stating that “after reviewing all available evidence, authorities could not establish that the attack, as alleged by the complainant, had occurred. Accordingly, the federal investigation into this incident has been closed based on the lack of evidence.”
The area in which Bernstein claimed to have been attacked was only blocks away from Wisconsin’s state capital, and is almost certainly covered by an abundance of CCTV cameras that could’ve documented the questionable incident. The total absence of surveillance camera evidence to document the alleged racist attack almost certainly ensures it’s little more than a dishonest hoax.
Bernstein was interviewed by Good Morning America days after making the allegation, and British royal Meghan Markle contacted her in support after the supposed attack.
This one was extremely fishy from day one, and it’s more than reasonable to cast this outlandish tale into the filled bucket of discredited and self-serving hate hoaxes.
ICE Issues Detainer on Illegal Alien Felon Arrested in Shootings of Two Houston Police Officers
The suspect is an illegal alien.
A man arrested in the shootings of two Houston, Texas police officers- one of whom has died- is an illegal alien.
Breitbart Texas reported that Immigration and Customs Enforcement issued a detainer request on 51-year old Elmer Rolando Manzano on Tuesday, with the immigration agency revealing that Manzano is an illegal alien with a history of felony criminal convictions in the United States.
Elmer Rolando Manzano-Martinez, 51, is a citizen of El Salvador and convicted criminal alien who is unlawfully present in the U.S. On Oct. 20, officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in Houston, Texas, placed an immigration detainer with the Harris County (Texas) Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) on Manzano-Martinez after he was arrested for murder.
Two officers of the Houston Police Department had arrived at an apartment complex to respond to reports of a domestic disturbance, with officers having previously been called to the residence in response to instances of Manzano fighting with his wife. Upon the arrival of the police, Manzano opened fire, shooting Sgt. Harold Preston multiple times, including in the head.
65-year old Preston was a 41-year veteran of the Houston Police.
Sgt. Harold Preston was a 41-year veteran of the @HoustonPolice — a cop who led a life of significance. A hero shot and killed today, Harold was a selfless public servant who we will #NeverForget. My prayers are with his family, community, and fellow officers. @ArtAcevedo pic.twitter.com/x1NqL7CBlu

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo went on to describe Sgt. Preston as a pillar of the community at a press conference at Memorial Hermann Hospital.
“We’ve lost just a wonderful human being,” Acevedo said of Preston after announcing that he had died in the shooting. “He is leading with men and women on streets, instead of choosing to sit in an office drinking coffee and reading the paper. That is the man he was — he is a man who lived with elderly parents to take care of them. As good as he was as a cop, he was a better human being, that is just the guy that he was and we are going to miss him.”
Another officer, Courtney Waller, survived the shootings and is recovering from a gunshot to the arm.

After barricading himself in the residence, Manzano surrendered to police and was arrested hours after the shooting. Chief Acevedo expects the criminal alien to be charged with murder.
Click 2 Houston reported on Manzano’s extensive history of felony criminal convictions shortly after his arrest. The illegal alien has been convicted of unlawful carrying of a firearm in October 1994; assault in August 2000 and December 2000; felony assault and causing bodily injury to a family member in May 2001; and evading arrest with a motor vehicle in December 2002.
Somehow, the repeat felon has proved capable of remaining in the United States and evading deportation, despite his criminal history.
