Walmart tests ‘in-fridge’ home delivery service for customers who aren’t home

Walmart is testing a new grocery delivery service -- one where you don’t have to be home to receive your order.

>> Read more trending news 

The retail giant announced Friday it has partnered with smart lock startup August Home to create a program where a delivery person can enter a customer’s home and put away groceries.

Delivery drivers would be given a one-time passcode that provides access to the customer’s house if no one is there. Customers would receive an alert notification via the August Home app when a delivery person enters their home and would be able to watch the delivery person through the app. 

The service will be tested in Silicon Valley with a small number of August Home users.

“These tests are a natural evolution of what Walmart is all about -- an obsession in saving our customers not just money but also time,” Sloan Eddleston, Walmart’s vice president of eCommerce strategy & business operations, wrote in a blog post. “This may not be for everyone -- and certainly not right away -- but we want to offer customers the opportunity to participate in tests today and help us shape what commerce will look like in the future.”

Funeral home burglar stole, wore dead man’s burial suit, police say

A Kentucky man is accused of burglarizing a funeral home and stealing from a dead man awaiting burial, according to police.

James Neal Sullivan, 35, of Cecilia, is charged with third-degree burglary in the Sept. 13 incident at Watson & Hunt Funeral Home in Leitchfield, a small city about 75 miles southwest of Louisville. The Leitchfield Police reported that a man broke into the funeral home around 10:30 p.m. the night of the burglary and stayed inside for several hours, even taking a nap in the office.

The man, later identified as Sullivan, could also be seen on surveillance footage dressing himself in a suit meant for the burial of a client of the business. Before leaving, he stole the clothes and some jewelry from the dead man, the keys to the funeral home’s hearse and several electronic items, including a Playstation 3 he found in the office, police officials said.

The investigation into the burglary led to Sullivan’s identification as the man who broke into the funeral home. According to police, investigators from Leitchfield, along with Hardin County narcotics agents and Kentucky state troopers on Wednesday executed a search warrant on a home in White Mills. 

During the search, they found some of the property that had been stolen in the funeral home burglary, Leitchfield police officials said. They also found drugs, drug paraphernalia, a weapon and detonation cords.

Sullivan was not present at the time of the search warrant, but two other people were arrested in connection to the case.

Gary W. Hawks, 55, of White Mills, is charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession and distribution of explosives without a permit and possession of marijuana, according to a statement on the Leitchfield Police Department’s Facebook page

Jennifer Kay Wills, 38, of White Mills, also was arrested Wednesday at the home. She is charged with receiving stolen property, tampering with physical evidence and first-degree possession of a controlled substance. 

Police were still looking for Sullivan Thursday morning, but information from the Grayson County Detention Center shows he was booked on the burglary charge there later that day. He remained there Friday afternoon. 

Hawks and Wills also remained jailed, but they were in the Hardin County Jail.

Man whose body pulled from creek told 911 ‘I’d rather be humiliated than dead’

The 71-year-old man who died and whose body was pulled out of Wolf Creek on Wednesday had called 911 and tried to let police know he needed help. 

“I need a rescue,” Charles Romine told a 911 dispatcher, according to the recording obtained by this news organization. “I’ve been on these rocks for, like, three hours.” 

Romine called 911 at 2:13 p.m. Monday, Sept. 18.

Dayton police issued a missing endangered adult alert the morning of Wednesday, Sept. 20. Romine’s family reported he was blind and had cataracts.

“This is really embarrassing but I’d rather be humiliated than dead,” Romine said, adding he had lost his water bottle and was tired from climbing rocks for hours.

Romine said he had left the Montgomery County Job Center earlier in the day. He had gotten off the bus to get cigarettes before going home for lunch, but lost his bag, cigarettes and keys.

“I don’t want to be looking embarrassed, that’s the main thing,” Romine said in an almost 8-minute call. “But I don’t want to lose my life, either.”

An entry on the Montgomery County dispatch log at 2:46 p.m. states crews could not locate Romine and attempted to call him back twice without answer. The incident was closed at 2:46 p.m.

At about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Romine’s body was found in Wolf Creek in the area of West Riverview Avenue and Philadelphia Drive — more than three miles from the area he told the dispatcher.

The dispatcher told Romine, “I will have an officer out there as soon as I can,” to which he responded, “Thank you, ma’am.” 

When the dispatcher said, “You’re welcome,” Romine answered, “Alright, bye bye.”

Man thanks officers who saved his life from flesh-eating bacteria

It was an emotional moment when a man got to thank officers for saving his life. 

WSBTV’s Linda Stouffer was there the moment Alan Avery was able to hug and embrace the DeKalb County officers. 

It was a year ago that Avery called to report someone breaking into his home five times.

“It’s not normal for someone to call back to back to back 911,” said DeKalb County officer T.P. Dunn.

Dunn, along with officer J.Q. Kelley and officer M. Poon, did exhaustive searches but there was no burglar, just something more serious going on with Avery.

“He really believes people are breaking in,” Dunn said.

Avery refused medical treatment so Poon made a decision to call his husband. 

“Asking me if there’s a history of mental illness or drug use, most importantly is he OK,” husband Michael Newton said. 

Avery was not OK. He was hallucinating, in dangerous septic shock from a flesh-eating bacteria infection. 

He spent weeks in a coma, eight painful surgeries and months of rehab. When they finally got him to the hospital, as the officers had been urging, doctors told Avery he could have been dead within an hour. 

At DeKalb police headquarters Wednesday, he brought gift cards and gratefulness.

“Without you, I would not be here today,” Avery said. “I would be dead. Thank you, thank all of you.”

The officers said their crisis intervention training was key to looking beyond the first emergency. 

“I'm just happy we could be a big part of that and do what we love to do, which is protect and serve,” Kelley said.

“Everything happens for a reason,” Poon said.

And that is why in that emotional hug, there was so much joy.
