Neumann-Goretti Coach Pleads Guilty, SEPTA I-76 Three Car Accident, Delran Woman Fakes Cancer
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA

The former baseball coach at a Catholic high school in Philadelphia has pleaded guilty to charges of assaulting one youth and drugging another at a hotel. Thirty eight year old Louis Spadaccini pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges including involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, endangering the welfare of children, indecent assault and corruption of minors. Authorities said Spadaccini, a part-time coach at Neumann-Goretti High School, assaulted a 13-year-old in July and August of last year and then gave a 14-year-old student alcohol and a drink spiked with Xanax at a hotel the following month. Prosecutors said Spadaccini will be sentenced to 12 to 24 years next year under the plea bargain. Defense attorney Tariq Karim El-Shabazz did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

A SEPTA bus was involved in a three-car accident on I-76 Wednesday night. It happened at about 7 p.m. A SEPTA spokeswoman says a Route 123 bus was going eastbound when it was involved in the accident near Exit 330. She says four passengers on the bus were taken to area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries. There is no word right now on injuries to passengers in the other cars.

A Burlington County woman who allegedly lied about having cancer was arrested Wednesday after authorities say she accepted money in a cancer fundraising scheme. The Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office said in February 2011, 40-year-old Lori Stilley of Delran, fooled her friends and family into thinking she had Stage 3 bladder cancer, allegedly posting she would be undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatment on Facebook and her personal website. A few months later in April, authorities say Stilley indicated the cancer had upgraded to Stage 4. Using a wheel chair was just one way Lisa DiGiovanni says her sister, Stilley deceived everyone including her own two young children. “It keeps me awake almost every night to think that my niece and nephew have thought that their mother was going to leave them,” DiGiovanni said. After allegedly claiming to friends and family she did not have health insurance, several of her friends raised close to $10,000 holding a t-shirt sale and a couple of fundraisers in the months that followed. Authorities also say Stilley wrote an e-book that discussed her daily struggle to cope with cancer. The book sold for $14.99 last October and generated more than $3,000 in proceeds. When Stilley allegedly said she wanted to marry her boyfriend before she died, less than two weeks later, investigators say her friends and family banded together to pay for her wedding, negotiating the cost of the wedding hall down to $500. Neighbors were stunned, including one man who didn’t want to be identified who said he pitched in about $60 to help. “A lot of people used to deliver food over to her house every night. I mean these are people that are middle class that couldn’t afford it,” the neighbor said.

Friends and family became suspicious of Stilley in November 2011 when they expected her to enter hospice care, but instead learned through Facebook that she was suddenly feeling better and she believed that a miracle was coming, authorities said. “The day before she was supposed to go on hospice she came to my daughter’s playoff field hockey game, and it was very dramatic, in a wheelchair, and she was supposed to be going on hospice the next day. I’m staring at her saying, ‘She just doesn’t look sick,’” DiGiovanni says conversations with her sister’s personal doctor, along with a sudden postponement of the hospice care led her to contact police in November of last year. DiGiovanni says her sister is sick mentally and needs help. Stilley is charged with third degree Theft by Deception. Stilley is out on $25,000 bail. It’s not clear what her husband may have known.
