The bodies of a U.S. Air Force servicewoman and her two small children were found inside their smoke-filled Staten Island home in an apparent triple murder, with her husband taken into custody Saturday while wandering the streets of Brooklyn, police said.


A concerned friend of the mom walked into the grisly scene when she went to check the family's home on Palisade St. in Arrochar around 10:30 a.m., said police sources.

She found the home's front door wide open and the victims inside, police sources said.

Cops responded to the the two-story house on the dead-end street and found a small fire and the bodies of the slain woman and her two children in the same bedroom — but no sign of the father, who was also in the Air Force.

Neighbors and police sources identified the woman as Alla Ausheva, 36. Her children were two boys, ages 2 and 3, said sources.

The boys were possibly drowned in the home's tub and then carried into the room where their mother's lifeless body was found with severe injuries to her head and face, said police sources.

The medical examiner will determine the cause of death," said NYPD Assistant Chief Kenneth Corey at an afternoon news conference. "However, we are treating this as a homicide investigation."

Cops responded to the address once before on a domestic incident.

Around 8 a.m. — 2 1/2 hours before the discovery of the slaying — the woman's husband and boys' father, Shane Walker, 36, was found wandering the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway in Brooklyn. Walker was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Both husband and wife were assigned to Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn, sources said.

Cops questioned the father Saturday afternoon. No charges were immediately filed.

A friend of Ausheva — who stood along alongside another woman in military garb outside the crime scene — remembered the victim as "a beautiful person."

If you're in the market for a bunker in the southwest, you're in luck. A decommissioned missile complex is now on sale outside of Tucson for nearly $400,000. The complex was home to an armed Titan II missile for 24 years, before it was decommissioned in the 1980s.

The structure is listed with Grant Hampton at Realty Executives. Now, the home is back on the market, and these photos show what lies underground in Arizona.

The Marine Corps will investigate whether another Marine has ties to a white supremacist group after he allegedly made racist comments on neo Nazi message boards that have since been taken down, according to a Marine Corps official.

Vice News reporters Tess Owen and Tim Hume first reported on Nov. 8 that at least three people who posted on the new defunct Iron March message boards were service members, but their story did not include any of the troops' names.

Newsweek reporters James LaPorta and Asher Stockler were able to independently confirm the identity of one of those service members as an active-duty Marine: Lance Corporal Liam J. Collins, an 0311 Rifleman assigned to 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
