GoFundMe Donors Speak Out as Couple Is Accused of Spending Homeless Man’s Money: ‘Despicable’

Donors who contributed money to help a homeless man in need say they are “saddened” by reports that the New Jersey couple who launched the GoFundMe campaign may have spent the funds on luxurious vacations and even a BMW.

Johnny Bobbitt, 35, was living on the streets of Philadelphia when he famously spent his last $ 20 to buy gas for 28-year-old Kate McClure after her car broke down on Interstate 95 last October. To repay him, McClure and her 39-year-old boyfriend Mark D’Amico launched a GoFundMe campaign, with more than 14,000 people donating a total of $ 402,706 to the man.

Now, less than a year later, Bobbitt is back on the streets and McClure and D’Amico are under criminal investigation. Through his lawyer, Bobbit has accused them of engaging in fraud and conspiracy by withholding money from him and spending the funds on a lavish lifestyle.

“It looks like they scammed him. That is despicable,” donor Janine McClenny, of Houston, tells PEOPLE. “I didn’t donate money to the couple. I donated to Johnny.”

McClure and D’Amico have denied the fraud allegations contained in Bobbitt’s lawsuit, and they have not been criminally charged.

On Thursday, the Florence Police Department executed a search warrant at McClure and D’Amico’s apartment and seized the couple’s BMW, a spokesperson for the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office told PEOPLE. The search came just days after the couple’s attorney said in court that the money they had been court-ordered to hand over to Bobbitt’s legal team is all gone.

“That kind of money can bring out the worst in people,” donor Sheilah Scofield tells PEOPLE of McClure and D’Amico. “It was just too much money for them to handle,” she speculated. “I thought was right to . They were withholding money that was raised for him.”

Burlington County Judge Paula Dow ordered the search warrant that prompted the prosecutor’s office to tow away the pair’s BMW, the spokesperson with the prosecutor’s office told PEOPLE. The spokesperson said that should criminal charges be filed, the couple could potentially face arrest.

Earlier this week, the couple’s attorney, Ernest Badway, said in court that all of the remaining funds are gone and Dow has ordered D’Amico and McClure to appear before her on Monday to explain where the money went. A court hearing is scheduled for Sept. 14.

McClure and D’Amico have said they began to keep the remaining funds from Bobbitt after he allegedly spent $ 25,000 in less than two weeks, some of it on drugs. They spoke about the incident last week on Megyn Kelly Today, claiming that they went above and beyond to track down the man’s birth certificate and get him identification.

They said they used the money raised to buy Bobbitt a camper that he asked for, an SUV, clothes, food and to admit Bobbitt to rehab for drug addiction.

Scofield says she is “saddened” by the recent developments, and McClenny tells PEOPLE that she thinks the couple should never have withheld the money.

“I don’t think the couple should have the right to decide to keep the money from Johnny,” she says. “He is an adult. They are not in a position to make decisions about how he spends money raised for him.”

Attorneys for neither Bobbitt nor the couple immediately responded to a request for comment from PEOPLE.

“He was our family. He is our family. I still think, to this day, that he is our family,” McClure told Kelly. McClure spoke through tears as she claimed the couple’s been receiving death threats.

On Thursday, GoFundMe officials said that they would ensure Bobbitt received money through their GoFundMe Guarantee program.

“Johnny will be made whole and we’re committing that he’ll get the balance of the funds that he has not yet received or benefited from,” officials wrote on the organization’s Facebook page. “GoFundMe’s goal has always been to ensure Johnny gets support he deserves.”

Aaron Hernandez’s Ex-Teammate Thinks Fiancée’s Baby Is Another Man’s — and Says Disgraced Athlete ‘Would Be Happy’

Thirteen months after former football star Aaron Hernandez hanged himself in prison, his fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins, announced that she’s expecting her second child.

“Many of you have had speculated that I may be expecting another miracle which is very accurate, I wanted to take time and process and post when I was ready to. I wanted to have a moment for myself alone with my daughter … we are beyond excited about the new addition and chapter we will soon begin,” Jenkins, 28, wrote on Instagram, accompanied by a bump-revealing photo.

The surprise announcement has left many who knew the former football star wondering what Hernandez, who was serving a life sentence in prison for murder, would have thought of the latest developments.

“Aaron had demons; we all know that,” says a former teammate of Hernandez’s from the University of Florida. “But he really was devoted to his daughter. Boy, did he love her. I think he’d be very glad to know that she was going to have a little sister.”

The former teammate believes the baby is not Hernandez’s.

Hernandez and Jenkins had a complicated relationship. They welcomed their daughter Avielle, 5, in 2012. In November of that year, the two also became engaged, although they never married.

“In many ways, Shayanna was the best thing to ever happen to him,” says the teammate. “He was crazy about her. She knew a lot of things about him, and she accepted him anyway.”

One of the things that Jenkins’ accepted about Hernandez was his bisexuality. “She knew that about him,” says the source, “And she supported him.”

So would Hernandez be okay with the fact that Jenkins has moved on with her life? “She was so loyal to him,” says the former teammate. “He would be happy for her.”

Hernandez, a former tight end for the New England Patriots, was arrested in 2013 for the murder of Odin Lloyd, a man dating Jenkins’ sister. As he awaited trial, he was charged with the fatal drive-by shootings of Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and Safiro Teixeira Furtado.

He was convicted of Lloyd’s murder and given sentenced to life in prison; he was acquitted of the double homicide in April 2017 and days later was found dead in his prison cell. The disgraced athlete had killed himself, he was 27.

In May 2017, Jenkins appeared on the Dr. Phil show and said she did not believe the athlete killed himself, despite authorities’ determination otherwise.

“I don’t think this was a suicide,” she told Dr. Phil McGraw, citing his acquittal and pending appeal on the Odin case. “That would make me doubt that he took his own life. He was very positive, so excited to come home.”

She added that Hernandez had spoken with their daughter after his acquittal and told her, “Daddy’s gonna be home.”

A Man’s World: Mr Porter Set to Introduce Mr P

LONDON — There’s a new man at Mr Porter known as Mr P, a collection of essentials and trend-led seasonal pieces designed, sourced, manufactured and distributed exclusively by the men’s fashion site.
The collection will launch on Nov. 7 and offer more than 50 pieces, a mix of wardrobe building blocks and five themed capsule collections that are meant to complement — rather than compete with — the site’s 400-plus brands.
In an exclusive interview, Mr Porter’s managing director Toby Bateman said the Mr P product has been engineered to work as an overarching wardrobe.
“Men’s brands tend to either be casual or formal or technical, but the reality is that men don’t necessarily dress head-to-toe in one particular way. We wanted to create a brand that in one aesthetic could bring casual, smart and technical together. Creatively, this is what we’re trying to achieve.”
Essentials, including a white T-shirt, 15-gauge cashmere knitwear and water-resistant travel blazers, will be carried year-round, while the first capsule will be based around Lucian Freud and his arty London friends from the Fifties.
The capsule collections will drop every few months, and the Lucian Freud-themed one features a Breton long-sleeve T-shirt for 95 pounds, a black doubled-breasted corduroy jacket

Missing Man’s Decomposing Body Sat in Truck for 8 Months in Airport Parking Lot As Family Searched for Him

A missing Kansas man’s body sat decomposing in his work vehicle for eight months in an airport parking lot 45 minutes from his home, causing his family to ask why no one found it sooner, PEOPLE confirms.

Randy Potter had been dead by suicide the entire time his family and police were searching for him, reports KMBC.

The body of Potter, age 53 when he was last seen alive on the morning of Jan. 17, was so decomposed in the vehicle parked at Kansas City International Airport that his gender and race were not immediately clear to investigators who later identified it, reports The Kansas City Star.

“What kills me the most was I was there … he could’ve been found the first week,” said his wife Carolina, a flight attendant who said she searched the same parking lot where her husband’s body was located, according to The Washington Post.

Potter’s family held a news conference last Friday to demand accountability.

“I want whatever changes to come about from all of this to be permanent,” said Potter’s daughter, Nichole. “I don’t want for someone to have to sit there for as long as my dad did.”

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

Lenexa, Kansas, police said Potter left his home there, about 45 minutes from the airport that is located across the state line and north of Kansas City, Missouri, around 7 a.m. on Jan. 17 and did not report to his job as a project engineer for T-Mobile.

A missing-persons flier said he was known to drive a white 2014 Dodge Ram and gave the license number — information that Carolina Potter says she shared with airport authorities, who assured her that if the vehicle was in one of their lots, it would turn up during a regular security sweep.

Potter’s family hired a private investigator to help with the search but directed his attention away from the airport after that assurance, Carolina Potter said.

The investigator, John Underhill, and Potter family attorney John Picerno said they believe Potter died the day he was reported missing, which means his body would have been sitting in the vehicle from Jan. 17 until it was discovered by police on Sept. 12, following a report of a foul odor, according to the Post.

The family was notified the next day, according to a Facebook post promoting the family’s months-long search.

“Every single entity failed my husband,” Carolina Potter said. “Every single one.”

When Randy Potter was reported missing, “there was not at the time of the report any indication that he was endangered or suicidal,” a Lenexa Police spokesman, Danny Chavez, tells PEOPLE. “He just had not shown up to work and family had not heard from him. There were no suspicious circumstances or foul place suspected.”

• PEOPLE’s special edition True Crime Stories: 35 Real Cases That Inspired the Show Law & Order is on sale now.

The nearby airport “was never pointed to as a place that he might be, any more than the local mall,” he says. “It was never mentioned by anybody.” As a matter of course, however, within the first week detectives checked with the airport and other federal authorities including the U.S. Passport agency.

“One of the things we wanted to ascertain was, had he boarded any planes?” Chavez says. “We were advised that he had not, so we wouldn’t have had any reason to conduct a search at the airport, but we were in contact with the airport authorities.”

Picerno, the family’s attorney, could not immediately be reached by PEOPLE.

The airport’s public parking lots fall under the watch of the Kansas City Aviation Department’s Airport Police Division.

“The City of Kansas City and its Aviation Department express our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Randy Potter,” the city said in a statement. “We wish them peace during this difficult time. We are working with all parties to determine the facts involved, including SP Plus, which manages the 25,000 parking spaces at Kansas City International Airport.”

This Man’s Action Movie Proposal Is As Badass As It Is Beautiful

Seth McMurry’s girlfriend Cymber wanted one thing from her marriage proposal: to be surprised. And that’s exactly what she got.

On May 7, Seth and Cymber were planning to help Seth’s brother with an action video he was filming for his YouTube channel AndrewMFilms.

“I knew that would be a great way to be able to get the proposal on video without her knowing what was going on,” Seth told The Huffington Post. “She thought her and I were going to be in one of his videos but little did she know I had planned everything.”

They filmed the video, which features some impressive special effects, on top of a parking garage in Little Rock, Arkansas. In the last scene, Seth saves Cymber from being hit by a crashing helicopter. She falls to the ground and when she picks herself back up, Seth calls her name.

This Man’s Obsession With ‘Friends’ Is Oddly Beautiful

Could he be any more obsessed with this show?

For a man in China, the show “Friends” has bled over to his real life. The man — who goes by the name Gunther and has a son named Joey — has dedicated his life to the feel-good vibe of everyone’s favorite New York neighbors.

In a segment for the show “i-D,” director Jordan Stokes follows Gunther, who quit his job to open his own coffee shop dedicated to the show. The Central Perk in Beijing is where Gunther and his fellow “Friends” lovers can watch and talk about the show.

After he went through a bad breakup, Gunther’s friends recommended he watch the show “to soothe his broken heart and teach him how to love again,” Stokes said.

“It worked,” Stokes continued. “Falling fast and hard for Joey, Chandler, Ross, Rachel, Monica and Phoebe’s friendly faces, Gunther loved their lives and found solace in their world.”

It might all seem pretty strange and out there, but maybe he’s just channeling a bit of Phoebe.

Off My Rocker: One Man’s Tasty, Twisted, Star-Studded Quest for Everlasting Music


He messed with James Brown’s perfect hair. He cured a dying sparrow with Joan Baez. He counted a pile of cash with Aretha Franklin. He got bamboozled by Chuck Berry. Kenny Weissberg followed the music his entire career. A disc jockey, critic, rock singer, bandleader, and concert promoter, he lived all his childhood dreams – some of which turned into nightmares. In Off My Rocker, he presents a rollicking, backstage look at the joys and painful realities of a life devoted to music. During his early years as a radio personality, he basks in the creative glow of the free-spirited, post-Woodstock era but later rebels against the soulless corporate takeover of the music he’s loved forever. Along the way, he detours to the dark side, succumbing to the greed, deceit, theft, and drugs so rampant in the entertainment industry. Equal parts spicy confessional and pop-culture adventure, with trenchant insights throughout, this page-turner of a memoir will stay with you long after the closing credits.
