Jozef Puska found guilty of murder of Ashling Murphy

The family of Ashling Murphy have said she was subject to “incomprehensible violence” and it is “imperative this vicious monster can never harm another woman again”. Speaking on the steps of the Criminal Courts of Justice, where Jozef Puska was found guilty of her murder less than two hours earlier, they said Ashling was the epitome of a perfect role model for every little girl to look up to and strive to be. The jury in the trial of Puska was earlier told they have ensured that “quite literally, nobody got away with murder.” Judge Hunt also told the jury that he was glad they did not “waste any more of your valuable time with Puska’s nonsense”.

Ozempic death

A woman in Australia who took prescribed Ozempic to lose weight ahead of her daughter’s wedding has died, with her grieving husband saying the drugs were “not worth it.” Ozempic is a drug typically used to treat type 2 diabetes, yet some have also been given FDA approval for chronic weight management. It works by mimicking the natural hormone GLP-1 by sending signals to your brain that you feel full or satisfied, even if you are not. Roy Webster, Trish’s husband, said that his wife saw the drug on TV, prompting her to allegedly get a prescription from a doctor.

A Stardust survivor has told an inquest how the fatal fire was like “a monster, a living thing that was coming after you”, as she recounted how, after battling to escape, she thought she was going to die as she lay on the floor with one of the victims. “To this day, I don’t know why I didn’t bring Sandra with me,” Deborah Osbourne on Thursday told the Dublin District Coroner’s Court, referring to Sandra Lawless, one of the 48 young people who lost their lives when the flames consumed the Stardust nightclub in the early hours of February 14th 1981.
