Merck Employee Steals Chemical; Woman Found Dead In NE Phila; Eagles Fans Vandalism Pictures/Video

An employee of the pharmaceutical company Merck & Co. has been accused of stealing potassium cyanide for use as rodent killer. The Montgomery County district attorney's office reported that 60-year-old Richard O'Rourke stole around 220 grams of the chemical from the lab located in Upper Gwynedd Township. O'Rourke was employed at Merck as a senior analytical chemist. Officials say the investigation began in December after a fellow employee saw O'Rourke pour the chemical into a bottle. He was planning to use the chemical to poison rodents, but when he found out there was an investigation he dumped it down a storm drain. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection took samples to see if the water was contaminated, but luckily no toxic impact was found. O'Rourke is now free on $35,000 bail.

Philadelphia Police are now investigating after a woman's body was found stabbed to death inside of a Northeast Philadelphia apartment on Tuesday evening. The body was found at around 4 pm on the 7100 block of Oxford Avenue. Police found the 68-year-old woman unresponsive in a bedroom, suffering from multiple stab wounds. Police found three knives at the crime scene. So far the woman has not yet been identified and no arrests have been made.

Philadelphia Police have now released new surveillance pictures of suspects wanted for acts of vandalism after the Eagles' won Super Bowl LII. Police have vowed to track down and prosecute all the suspects wanted in the aftermath of both celebrations, after the Super Bowl and the parade. During the Super Bowl night a woman was caught on video stealing public property. A young man was also caught taking a "do not walk" sign. Another video was released of several people jumping on top of a woman's car during the parade. Police are asking anyone with information about the suspect, to get in contact with Philadelphia detectives.
