    As the most notorious boss of the Chicago Mafia since Al Capone, Sam Giancana controlled a criminal empire stretching across America. He had an army of thugs to call on — but for two days in November 1963, he asked for help from his little brother, Pepe. He was only a humble, illegal bookie in the Giancana empire, but Sam needed someone to chauffeur him around while the mobsters who usually did so were out of town. As Pepe later confided to family, those men had gone to Dallas to do a job for Giancana — one that would become a seminal moment of the 20th century. From conversations overheard at his brother’s mansion in Oak Park outside Chicago, Pepe worked out that their task was to help Lee Harvey Oswald assassinate John F Kennedy, then ensure that Oswald did not live to talk. Since then, millions of words have been written about the killing of JFK: claims that the Mafia wanted revenge for his war on organised crime have vied with counter-theories that the president was killed by the...

    A Scottish woman was left stunned when a group of Americans turned up in her front garden unannounced and started taking pictures of each other. Lanna Tolland was relaxing on her sofa when eight people started smiling and waving from the front gate of her home in Glasgow on Wednesday evening. The group then began walking up her garden path as homeowner Ms Tolland watched in disbelief. Ms Tolland said she was 'so confused' by the bizarre encounter and later learnt her property had become an unusual monument to the group and used to be owned by their great grandparents. The eight Americans then posed for pictures in the evening light to record the moment.  Tweeting about the incident, Ms Tollard said: 'No way. Lying on the couch with the blind still open and I see eight people I don't know at the gate waving at me I'm like??  'Open the window and they're all American giving it 'Our great grandparents used to own this house, can we have a look around?'

    Demands The teachers' union responded to the incident with a list of demands, the Bee said, which include: Trauma support for affected students and staff; A full investigation into how the parent got into the school and classroom, as well as her past behavior; Transferring the parent’s student into independent study for the rest of the school year; A campus safety plan; A district-funded campus assistant. “Unfortunately, this incident and others like it, are the ugly culmination of Fresno Unified’s unwritten policy of not holding students and adults responsible for their inappropriate behavior,” said Manuel Bonilla, FTA president, according to the paper. “No one deserves to interrupt the learning of our students.” Pyle's principal began the process of filing a restraining order, Diaz added, according the Bee.

    Oops! Not only did the women make a big mistake by entering a school and physically attacking students — but also, none of the students they attacked were bullying their relative. “Our investigation showed that the students who were viciously attacked were not even the students who these subjects believed had bullied their family member,” Sheriff Anthony Dennis said, according to the State. “The fact is, the students who were reported as bullying these [women’s] family member [were] actually in the office being dealt with when this attack took place.”What happened to the accused attackers? Both Smiths were taken to the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center where they were awaiting a bond hearing sometime Thursday, the paper said, citing the sheriff’s office. If convicted on the third-degree assault by mob charge, they each face a maximum sentence of a year in prison; a conviction on the disturbing schools charge — a misdemeanor — is punishable by a maximum of 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine, the State said, citing South Carolina law. “This type of behavior...
    SAN JOSE — Former mixed martial arts champion Cain Velasquez will get a new bail hearing later this month after allegedly trying to kill a person suspected of molesting an underage relative. In an a Friday hearing at the Santa Clara County Superior Court, Judge Jose Franco granted Velasquez, 39,  a new bail hearing scheduled for May 16, with a plea hearing scheduled for June. Velasquez faces 10 assault and weapons charges that could result in more than 20 years of jail time. He was denied bail in March and remains in custody at the Santa Clara County Main Jail. Velasquez is accused of firing a gun at a man accused of molesting his child relative. That man, 43-year-old Harry Eugene Goularte, has been charged with one felony count of a lewd and lascivious act with a child under the age of 14, specifically a 4-year-old. Goularte was granted supervised release at his arraignment in February. He was on his way to get fitted for an ankle monitor with his parents when Velasquez allegedly began firing at the car, pursuing the...
    LIVERMORE — A 17-year-old Livermore boy was in county Juvenile Hall after his arrest this week on suspicion of murder in connection with a 15-year-old Richmond girl’s fatal shooting earlier this month — and a relative was being held for allegedly helping the boy evade arrest, authorities said. Around 8 p.m. April 15, police responded to a caller’s report of an injured and unconscious girl seen in a vehicle at Collier Canyon Road and Meritage Common in a North Livermore neighborhood. When officers arrived, they found the girl, who was pronounced dead by Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department firefighters at the scene. Her death was the city’s first homicide of the year. Police refused to identify the victim in their statement Thursday, citing the ongoing investigation. A day later, police identified a person of interest in the killing, and pursued an investigation with help from Hayward police. In a statement Thursday, police said the unidentified boy was arrested around 6 p.m. Tuesday at a motel on Foothill Boulevard in Hayward. A day later, a 44-year-old relative of the boy was detained in...
    A woman's body was discovered in a blood-filled duffel bag in Queens early Saturday morning, and law enforcement sources say the unidentified victim may have been killed by a family member. Detectives are now investigating the gruesome find, which was made by two different local residents near a popular walking path on Metropolitan Avenue in Forest Hills, on a section of street that cuts through a local park.   Cops Saturday said a blood trail from the bag led them to a house in a gated community less than a mile away, called Forest Hills Gardens, which has now become the center of their investigation. Police are focusing their attention on the home, located on nearby Juno Street, and are looking into the possibility that a male relative killed the woman and dumped her body, law enforcement sources told the the New York Daily News.  No arrests have been made in the investigation, which is still ongoing.  The disturbing discovery comes as New York continues to grapple with a violent crime wave that has seen major crimes rise nearly 50 percent in the past year, and...
    The attorney for the man charged with molesting a child relative of former mixed martial arts champion Cain Velasquez says his client has been forced into hiding, and that his prospects for a fair trial have been compromised following Velasquez’s attempt on his life and ensuing public fervor supporting the alleged vigilantism. Harry Eugene Goularte Jr. 43, of San Martin, was arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting a juvenile at a daycare center. (Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office)  Harry Goularte Jr., 43, appeared at his latest court hearing via video call Wednesday, which defense attorney Steve DeFilippis said was warranted after more than 50 people protesting Goularte showed up at the South County courthouse in Morgan Hill. The previous day, at Velasquez’s latest court hearing for attempted murder and other assault charges, dozens of his supporters showed up to court and the courthouse holding signs reading #FreeCain and a banner displaying Goularte’s booking photo. “There’s clearly a security issue, that’s what’s driving the virtual appearances at this point,” DeFilippis said in an interview Thursday. “Mr. G very strongly denies the allegations...

    (CNN)The oldest ancestor of modern octopuses lived 328 million years ago and had 10 arms, according to a new study. Researchers have named the previously unknown species Syllipsimopodi bideni after US President Joe Biden.The creature's discovery pushes back the time frame when vampyropods, the group to which cephalopods like octopuses belong, appeared in the ocean by almost 82 million years.The study published Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications. Worlds deepest octopus, complete with Dumbo ears, captured on film 4 miles below the surfaceVampyropods are known for having eight legs, an internal shell made of chitin and a soft body -- the last of which doesn't show up often in the fossil record because it tends to deteriorate more quickly than hard structures like bone. A well-preserved fossil was discovered in Montana's Bear Gulch Limestone formation and donated to Canada's Royal Ontario Museum in 1988. The specimen represents the earliest-known ancient relative of these creatures, a new analysis of the fossil revealed.

    SAN JOSE — Mixed-martial arts star Cain Velasquez allegedly followed and chased a vehicle carrying a man accused of molesting his underage relative, pursuing him and his parents for several miles before opening fire on them on a remote road in South San Jose, according to newly filed charging documents accusing Velasquez of attempted murder. Velasquez, 39, of Gilroy was formally charged with attempted murder and multiple gun assault charges Wednesday, in connection with a roadside encounter Monday in which he allegedly shot and wounded the stepfather of the man authorities say Velasquez was targeting.

    Houston (CNN)The midterm election season kicked off Tuesday in Texas -- with election workers, voters and voting rights activists reporting several glitches, including poll worker shortages, as Texans cast their ballots in person.But election officials in the Lone Star State say the biggest challenge still looms: The scramble to fix the higher-than-usual number of mail-in ballots flagged for potential rejection under the state's restrictive new voting law.Officials in Harris County -- home to Houston -- had flagged as faulty nearly 30% of the more than 38,000 mail-in ballots received as of Monday because voters did not include identifying information on the return envelope, the county's election chief Isabel Longoria told reporters Tuesday morning.That means voters likely will cast more provisional ballots than typical on Election Day, she added.Tuesday marks the first primaries of year. In Texas, the results will determine general election matchups for governor and a slew of statewide and legislative offices. If no candidate achieves more than 50% support, a runoff election is slated for May.Read MoreTuesday also marks the first test of a new voting law passed...
    The Stumbling Block to One of the Most Promising Police Reforms, The Atlantic As cities around the country implement mental health or crisis response teams, the Atlantic reports that emergency dispatchers aren’t recognizing mental health crises initially and are instead sending police to calls. “In too many cases, calls related to people in crisis were going unrecognized until police were already on the scene,” the story says. In Minnesota, a task force for 911 operators is looking into new training for dispatchers to make them more aware of crisis teams and how to use them. —Walker Orenstein, Greater Minnesota reporter To Be Good Kin, Midnight Sun Anishinaabe author Patty Krawec has a book that will be released later this year called “Becoming Kin: An Indigenous Call to Unforgetting the Past and Reimagining Our Future” and an excerpt was posted here.

    Eleven months into Joe Biden’s presidency and almost a year after the January 6 insurrection, many critics of former President Donald Trump and his cronies are arguing that U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland hasn’t gone after MAGA criminality aggressively enough. Legal experts Quinta Jurecic, Andrew Kent and Benjamin Wittes address that criticism in an article published by Lawfare on December 21. The article defends Garland, for the most part. But Jurecic, Kent and Wittes agree that Garland needs to speak out a lot more. “Attorney General Merrick Garland is taking a great deal of criticism these days,” they observe. “He’s being attacked for not having indicted former President Trump, for not having brought cases faster against witnesses who have defied the January 6 committee, and for not having moved more aggressively against political figures for their supposed involvement in the January 6 insurrection. These criticisms speak to genuine frustrations with the slow pace of Department (of Justice) action. They are also based on two flawed assumptions.” Jurecic, Kent and Wittes continue, “The first...
    A new genus of bird-like dinosaur with huge slashing talons and finely serrated teeth that was an ancient relative of the Velociraptor has been found on the Isle of Wight. The creature has been named 'Vectiraptor greeni' in honour of local collector Mike Green, who found its fossils at Compton Bay, on the island's south coast, in 2004. Palaeontologists from the Universities of Bath and Portsmouth who studied the find said that it was 10 feet long in life — bigger than its Velociraptor descendants. The team believe that the feathered V. greeni used brute strength to overcome its prey, using its killer talons to ruthlessly dispatch its prey. It lived some 125 million years ago during the Early Cretaceous — 50 million years before Velociraptors evolved — at which time the Isle of Wight was a forest. The discovery marks the first time a large raptor has ever been found in England.  A new genus of bird-like dinosaur with huge slashing talons and finely serrated teeth (depicted) that was an ancient relative of the Velociraptor has been found on the Isle of Wight The creature has...
    Dawson Springs, Kentucky (CNN)When they heard the sound of a train coming, Philip and Patricia Bruce started to run.They'd been in their bedroom, about to turn in for the night, when the rumbling grew into a roar. They got up and scrambled toward the basement but made it just a few feet down the hall when shards of glass and debris began pelting them in the back. Taking cover in the next bedroom, they waited, hoping they'd make it through."It was awful," Philip, who is 69, said. "I got glass in my back, in my legs. But we're safe. The Lord's good."Before their lives were upended by last week's violent, long-track tornado, the Bruces lived in Dawson Springs, Kentucky.

    Our understanding of human evolution could be 'reshaped' by the identification of a new ancient human that may replace Neanderthals as our closest relative. Experts led from China's Hebei GEO University came to this conclusion after re-analysing the so-called 'Harbin cranium', which was unearthed back in the 1930s. First thought from Homo heidelbergensis, the team now think the near-perfectly preserved skull instead represents an example of Homo longi — the 'Dragon Man'. Held in Hebei GEO's geoscience museum, the skull — the largest of all Homo species — was found in the Songhua River, near Harbin, in China's Heilongjiang province.  The fossil specimen was hidden for decades in a well, and was only handed over to researchers for study back in 2017. H. longi had a brain comparable in size to that of modern humans, but sported big, almost square eye sockets, thick brow ridges, a wide mouth and larger teeth.  Scroll down for video Our understanding of human evolution could be 'reshaped' by the identification of a new ancient human (Homo longi, depicted) that may replace Neanderthals as our closest relative...

The show cut to the credits before viewers could make out the wording on the document, but instead of waiting a whole week to find out, the internet got busy trying to figure it out! Many believe that the show's subtitles have already given it away - letting slip that the mystery relative is a man, using the word "he" to describe the person in the file. 5Fans are suggesting...
    A woman who used MySpace to track down her cousin's killer has revealed how she impersonated her dead relative and made potential suspects 'fall in love' with her before grilling them for information.   Netflix's new true crime documentary 'Why Did You Kill Me?' details how 24-year-old Crystal Theobald's family used social media to find the gang members who gunned her down in Riverside, California, in February 2006.   The victim's mother Belinda Lane witnessed the murder and vowed in Crystal's final moments to avenge her death. She enlisted her niece Jaimie to make a fake profile for Crystal on the now-defunct MySpace platform to investigate the crime.   'Aunt Belinda came up with the idea of making Crystal a MySpace,' Jaimie recalled in the trailer for the film, which premieres on April 14. 'I said, "I can get information for you."'

    A doctor and his wife were brutally beaten by a family member who was upset at being told he should not attend a nightclub in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in southern Brazil. Dr. José Mainart, 31, took to his Instagram account Monday morning and uploaded a photo that showed the black eye and bruised lip he suffered as a result of the assault last Friday outside his home in Toledo, Paraná. Dr. Mainart said had attended several meetings before the Paraná state government issued a 10-day order banning non-essential activities and services to contain the spread of the coronavirus. Upon arriving home, the infectious disease doctor approached his relative and explained that it would not be wise of him to attend a party because he would be putting others around him at risk of being infected.  But he claims the relative responded by beating him, while a friend of the attacker held him in a chokehold. 'The answer I was given was kicks and punches, while one held me the other [relative] attacked me,' Dr. Mainart wrote on...
    The Hotline mailbag is published each Friday. Send questions to [email protected] or hit me on Twitter: @WilnerHotline. (In each case, please acknowledge authorization to publish your name and question.) Because of volume — and in some cases, the need for research — not all questions will be answered the week they are submitted.  You and @BrockHuard have mentioned one of the reasons the #PAC12 is miles behind the #SEC/Big 10 is they don’t have the same resources they had in 1990s-2000s. Can you expound on that and why are academics so restrictive in the Pac12 but not in the #Big10? Thanks. @kmasterman I won’t speak for Huard here, but the issue, in my mind, is one of relativity over time: How many miles (dollars) behind is the Pac-12 now and how does that compare to the deficit back then? We don’t have details on the annual distributions from the conferences to the member schools from the 1990s and early 2000s. But prior to the current contract cycle with ESPN and Fox that began in 2012, Pac-12 athletic departments were receiving roughly 50...
    Over the last 10 years, technology stocks have been the undisputed winner. Whether it's Apple, Amazon, Microsoft or any of the mega-cap tech names, investors likely have a bad case of buyer's remorse holding just about anything else. For context, the tech-heavy Russell 1000 Growth index outperformed the Russell 1000 Value index by about 7% per year on average over the last 10 years. This is a 2-standard deviation spread, last seen during the late 1990's.  But, while higher this week, Big Tech has shown signs of weakness in recent months. In my opinion, tech's reign of relative dominance has come to an end ... at least for now.Valuation mattersAny good thesis for an underperforming asset always starts with it being overvalued. It's not that FAANG and other large tech companies aren't great businesses. On the contrary, they are fabulous businesses by most measures. In fact, a number of these stocks remain our largest single stock exposures. They just happen to also be our largest underweights relative to the benchmark.  The problem is that current prices necessitate a level of future...
    Authorities in Russia are to decide the fate of a 'miracle' baby born to a woman who died next day from Covid-19. Svetlana Sorochinskaya, 36, died from the virus at a hospital in St Petersburg in November last year after medics delivered her baby boy prematurely by Cesarean section - with her parents, 64 and 62, also passing away within a week. With no close relative to take custody of the orphan, authorities are now left to choose between a colleague of Svetlana's who says he was her secret lover and the baby's father; and a distant relative who says she also wants to raise the child.  The man claims that divorcee Svetlana had desperately wanted a child and secretly chose him to father her baby on the understanding he would play no further part in her or the child's life.  Divorcee Svetlana Sorochinskaya, 36, had desperately wanted a child and secretly chose a work colleague to father her baby on the understanding he would play no further part in her or the child's life Inside a week of her...

    Q: In the very early stages of dementia, my father-in-law signs listings agreements with one seller’s agent after another. My sister-in-law is the co-trustee on all public records regarding his home. Beyond comprehension is the speed at which these real estate agents sign a listing contract with an older adult in his ninth decade. None of the seller’s agents conducted due diligence regarding ownership or title. Not one seller’s agent asked to speak with any of his six adult children prominently displayed in all the family photos. Currently, the fourth seller’s agent signed a three-month listing agreement with my father-in-law in early October, overlapping the third listing agent’s listing contract period ending in early November. During the two listing periods before COVID-19 restrictions, and two since, my father-in-law was uncooperative in showing his house. Luckily, no offers were submitted or accepted to our knowledge. Currently, the listing is in a holding pattern with the local Multiple Listing Service. I just learned the current seller’s agent refuses to cancel her listing. She told my sister-in-law she would “show the house” and...
