    Investigators of Zimmerman Domestic Dispute Unable to Extract Wife's iPad Video

    (LAKE MARY, Fla.) — Forensic investigators were unable to extract video from an iPad that the wife of George Zimmerman was using during a domestic dispute that ended with the controversial former neighborhood watch captain in handcuffs, Florida police said Wednesday. As a result, no charges are expected be filed against either George Zimmerman or his wife, Shellie, anytime soon, if ever. It could take weeks or months to retrieve anything from the iPad, which was badly damaged after George Zimmerman, acquitted in the death of Trayvon Martin, damaged the device, said Lake Mary Police Department spokesman Zach Hudson. Shellie… Read more

    YouTube Drunken Driving Confessor Pleads Not Guilty

    (COLUMBUS, Ohio) — Matthew Cordle, the Ohio man who posted an emotional video confession online admitting to killing a man in a June drunken driving accident, pleaded not guilty in an Ohio court Wednesday. It was a move, legal experts say, that may be a tactic to have a new judge preside over his case. On Wednesday Judge Julie Lynch set bail at $150,000 for the 22-year-old Cordle, who was indicted this week for one count of aggravated vehicular homicide for causing the death of Vincent Canzani, 61, on June 22, and one count of operating a motor vehicle while… Read more

    ‘Baby Veronica’ Custody Case Rages On

    (WASHINGTON) — Last spring, when the Supreme Court heard a custody battle involving a young child, her biological father and an adoptive couple, Justice Sonia Sotomayor anticipated that even after the Court ruled, the heartbreaking saga would be far from over. Sotomayor was right. The high court decided one aspect of “Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl” in June, but over the summer the case continued to ricochet between state supreme courts, county judges and tribal courts. There have been extradition requests, emergency motions and gag orders, and yet the four year old child  – “Baby Veronica” — is still living… Read more

    Humberto Becomes First Hurricane of Atlantic Season

    (NEW YORK) — Humberto picked up some steam Wednesday morning, strengthening enough to become the first hurricane of the Atlantic season. The former tropical storm is now a Category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour. As Jack Beven at the National Hurricane Center in Miami points out, it’s unusual to wait until September for the first hurricane of the season. “As far as we can tell this is probably the second latest formation of a hurricane in the period of reliable records in the Atlantic basin.  But we have to do a little more research… Read more

    5 Accused Terrorists the US Will Pay Millions to Catch

    (WASHINGTON) — It’s been 12 years since the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks and though al Qaeda’s leader, Osama bin Laden, was killed more than two years ago, the group and its terrorist affiliates remain — populated in part by high-profile recruits straight from the American homeland. Below are five men, considered U.S. persons and alleged supporters of terrorism wanted so badly by the U.S. government that an aggregate reward amoung of $21 million has been offered for information leading to their arrest or conviction.
