15-Year-Old Boy Dies in His Sleep After ‘Surfing’ on Roof of an Uber — Leading to Driver’s Arrest

A New York Uber driver is accused of manslaughter after three teenage passengers who’d been drinking allegedly paid him to let them climb onto the roof of his moving car — and then one of them fell off and died, PEOPLE confirms.

The driver, 24-year-old Danyal Cheema, of Huntington Station, was charged Monday with second-degree manslaughter in the death of 15-year-old Ryan Mullen, of Cold Spring Harbor.

Cheema is being held in lieu of $ 200,000 bond following his arrest on Sunday. It was unclear if he’d entered a plea. His attorney, Christopher Renfroe, did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

In the incident shortly after midnight on Sept. 23, Cheema was behind the wheel of his 2010 Toyota Highlander as an Uber driver when he picked up the three teen boys in Huntington, after they had been drinking, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office.

On the way to their destination, the boys allegedly offered Cheema $ 70 cash — and gave him $ 40 — if he’d let them climb onto the car’s roof at an intersection so they could “car surf” as the vehicle took off, the investigation revealed.

Mullen and a second teen then remained on the roof as Cheema drove along Cove Road, with the third boy recording them in a Snapchat video.

Mullen’s subsequent fall led to head trauma “which resulted in his death,” according to the prosecutor’s office. Although Cheema brought all three boys to their destination at a home in Huntington, Mullen “succumbed to his injuries in his sleep later that day,” the prosecutor’s office said.

“This was an incredibly bad decision by the defendant and a bad decision by the boys involved,” District Attorney Timothy Sini said in a news release. “But at the end of the day, this defendant is an adult who was contracted to safely bring those boys home and he failed to do that.”

“We have a culture right now where the mindset is, ‘How can we outdo each other?’ Particularly among young people on social media, and we often see the tragic consequences of that,” Sini said. “A lot of young people think they are invincible and that’s something we need to keep drilling in their heads that this could happen to anyone when you engage in this kind of conduct.”

He added: “In this day and age, we often encourage people to use ride sharing services because it’s a safe alternative to drinking and driving. These boys were doing that; they were drinking that night and they made the right decision to contract with a car service.”

“Unfortunately the defendant made a reckless decision and engaged in reckless conduct that caused the death of a young boy, and he will be held accountable for that,” Sini said.

In his obituary, Ryan was remembered as a “loving son” and “fierce friend.”

He “lived life so large and his time here was short,” his family wrote. “God had other plans.”

Cheema faces five to 15 years in prison if convicted of the manslaughter charge. He is due back in court on Friday.

A Daughter’s Fight for Justice for Slayings of Her Mom & Grandma That Led to Her Dad’s Arrest

When Alison Dupras learned that her mother and grandmother had been found dead in December — both fatally shot at home and left for days — the name of the killer came immediately to mind.

“I know that my father did this, I knew that as soon as I knew what had happened,” Alison tells PEOPLE. “I knew it right away. Right then and there, I knew.”

She even confronted dad Alan Dupras and implored him to turn himself in, but to no avail. “That’s all I wanted was for him to confess, either to me or to the authorities,” Alison says, “and I just knew that wasn’t going to happen.”

Alison was in regular contact with authorities during their months-long investigation and kept up public pressure for an arrest. She reportedly held a protest at the district attorney’s office in late July.

“We are gathering silently and peacefully to let (the district attorney) know that we as a community cannot accept anything other than an arrest and full trial…” she said then, according to the Fresno Bee. “I have been told the detectives are certain of who has committed this atrocity and any jury would find the suspect guilty.”

Alan, 58, never went to the police. But on Sept. 25 — nine months after the double shooting of his estranged wife, retired elementary school principal Jennifer Dupras, 55, and her 88-year-old mother, Cynthia Houk — authorities came to him.

Arrested at his home in Kingsburg, California, Alan faces charges of murder as well as possession of assault weapons, vandalism and two counts of arson.

He has pleaded not guilty and his attorney, Mark Broughton, dismissed the case as “purely circumstantial,” without eyewitnesses, a murder weapon or a confession.

Investigators, however, said they discovered enough proof to believe he was responsible.

• For more on the life and slaying of Jennifer Dupras and her mom and the arrest of Alan Dupras, subscribe now to PEOPLE or pick up this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday.

Speaking to reporters the same day as Alan’s arrest, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims cited “technology and digital data” that helped implicate him as well as evidence “received just this month” that was “needed to confirm that he was in fact the suspect.” Mims also said there was signs the slayings were premeditated.

“We do know that he suspected there was a relationship between Jennifer and another man,” she said of Alan, “and those are the possibilities that we’re looking at as far as motive.”

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

A search warrant and supporting affidavit released this summer, before Alan’s arrest, further detailed out a series of allegedly incriminating discoveries in the murder investigation. For example, in December, investigators said they learned from a relative of Alan’s that he drunkenly “bragged” about setting Houk’s car on fire the month before she was killed.

He’d also researched ways to disable the computer in his truck in order to hide its location while driving, the affidavit alleges.

Two Lives Cut Short

The bodies of Jennifer and her mother were found in Houk’s Fresno home on Dec. 11, two days after both had been shot. The homicides — unusual for the area — came just as Jennifer seemed to be getting everything in her life in order.

Having recently retired from a 26-year career in education, she moved in with her mom and filed for divorce from Alan, ending a troubled 26-year marriage.

“She told me she was the happiest she had ever been,” Jennifer’s friend Kelly Rosales tells PEOPLE. “You could see it. I ran into her at a restaurant one night and she had the biggest smile. She was just light. She was just airy.”

Jennifer had even recently started dating again.

“She found someone who was really sweet to her,” her daughter says. “I’m not surprised, because she’s so perfect.”

Alan, says Alison, had “turned into this person with no hobbies and no interests and no life of his own.” Alison also says he was a heavy drinker prone to aggression when intoxicated, but he had been sober for about seven years until Jennifer announced she was ending things.

Alison says that when her mom decided to leave him Alan “was like, ‘I don’t know how she can do this to me,’ very much taking the victim kind of stance. He was pretty delusional about the whole situation.”

After the slayings, Alison told police about alleged “incidents of domestic violence” that were never reported, according to the search warrant affidavit.

Alison tells PEOPLE the deaths of her mother and grandmother have made her even more aware of the complicated burden faced by women in abusive relationships. She urges others to be vigilant and take steps to protect themselves.

“That’s my biggest takeaway,” she says, “and my biggest message.”

Smallville Actress Allison Mack Is Negotiating a Possible Plea After Sex-Trafficking Arrest

Actress Allison Mack is working out a possible plea following her Friday arrest on sex-trafficking charges in connection with Nxivm, a controversial self-help group and alleged “cult” based in New York, PEOPLE learns.

Mack, 35, and federal prosecutors disclosed their pending plea negotiations in a joint petition filed Friday, asking the court to exclude the next several days from the larger period of time under which Mack’s speedy trial must begin.

The application, obtained by PEOPLE, shows both parties sought the exclusion “because they are engaged in plea negotiations, which they believe are likely to result in a disposition of this case without trial.”

The prosecution and defense “require an exclusion of time in order to focus efforts on plea negotiations without the risk that they would not, despite their diligence, have reasonable time for effective preparation for trial,” the petition continues.

The judge in Mack’s case approved their request, court records show. She had been scheduled to return to court for a detention hearing on Monday.

Mack faces three federal charges in connection with Nxivm, whose co-founder Keith Raniere was arrested in Mexico in March on the same three accusations. Both are accused of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy for their alleged roles in running a secretive sub-group within Nxivm involving “masters” and “slaves.”

The former Smallville costar faces at least 15 years in prison if convicted on all of her charges. She reportedly pleaded not guilty during her first court appearance in the case, in New York City, on Friday.

Mack — who appeared in FX’s Wilfred and The Following, on Fox, after Smallville ended — has previously discussed her connection with Raniere. “Over the course of several years, Mr. Raniere mentored Allison in her study of acting and music,” her website stated until her arrest (after which it was taken offline).

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

A representative for Mack has declined to comment to PEOPLE on her arrest. Attempts to contact her attorney, Sean Stephen Buckley, have not been returned.

Raniere’s lawyer could not immediately be reached by PEOPLE. He has yet to be arraigned.

Nxivm, reportedly formed in 1998 and based out of Albany, New York, has been the subject of scrutiny from both law enforcement and journalists as it came under fire from Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg, whose estranged daughter, India, joined the group in 2011.

“I hope the arrest of Ms. Mack will continue to expose what Nxivm is — a dangerous cult — and the members, including my daughter, will come to that realization and find their way back to their loved ones,” Oxenberg, 56, told PEOPLE after Mack was arrested.

For the past two decades, an estimated 16,000 people have paid as much as $ 3,400 for an executive coaching workshop offered by Nxivm, which promises to take participants on a journey of personal discovery and development, according to previous PEOPLE reports.

Nxivm has not responded to numerous requests for comment from PEOPLE but issued a statement in support of Raniere soon after his arrest, writing in part: “We are currently working with the authorities to demonstrate his innocence and true character.”

In the fall, the group denounced a New York Times article about them as “a criminal product of criminal minds.”

The Shameless actor recently spoke out about his TV son Ethan Cutkosky’s arrest for an alleged DUI, acknowledging that growing up in the spotlight can be challenging for young actors.

Of 18-year-old Cutkosky, who plays Carl Gallagher, Macy, 67, said he’s a “great guy.”

Cutkosky was arrested Wednesday in Los Angeles for allegedly driving under the influence, according to multiple reports.

French Police Arrest 16 in Relation to Kim Kardashian Robbery

IN THE BAG: French police have arrested 16 people in connection with the armed robbery of Kim Kardashian West in Paris in October, French media reported on Monday.
Police carried out a series of arrests in Paris and its suburbs early Monday morning, newspapers including Le Monde and Le Figaro reported. DNA left at the scene of the crime was used to track down at least one of the suspects, who was already known to police for previous crimes, the reports said.
A spokesman for Paris police referred enquiries to the Paris prosecutor’s office. Officials there were not immediately available to comment. According to French law, authorities now have up to 96 hours to charge the suspects or let them go.
At least two men dressed as police officers held up Kardashian West at gunpoint in the luxury apartment where she was staying during Paris Fashion Week last October. The robbers reportedly forced the night watchman of the discreet guesthouse known as the No Address hotel to let them into the apartment.
The thieves made off with two cell phones and an estimated $ 10 million of the star’s jewels, including her 20-carat engagement ring, and left her bound and gagged in the bathroom. The
