    The man who jumped to his death from the 18th floor of a ritzy 57-story building in Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood Friday has been identified as a Bed Bath & Beyond executive. Gustavo Arnal, 52, was identified as the jumper at the 56 Leonard Street building - where apartments go for up to $50million - on Friday afternoon, according to the New York Post.  Arnal was the Chief Financial Officer of Bed Bath & Beyond, a company that has been going through struggles of late, forcing the company to announce plans to close 150 stores of its roughly 900 and lay off 20 percent of corporate and supply chain staff.  Calls regarding the jump at 56 Leonard Street near Church Street came in at around 12:30pm, according to a spokeswoman for the NYPD.  The building, located at 56 Leonard Street in the fashionable Tribeca district, is topped with an impossible-looking jumble of misaligned floors that make it look like a teetering Jenga tower.  The penthouse apartment in the building went for $50million.  The city's EMS officials responded to the incident and were...

    Orange County prosecutors on Monday said they had identified the killer of two women in the 1980s with the help of DNA evidence. Shannon Rose Lloyd, 23, was found dead shortly before midnight on May 21, 1987, in a room she rented in a house in Garden Grove. Forensic evidence would reveal she had been raped and strangled. Renee Cuevas, 27, was found dead near Marine Corps Air Station El Toro in Irvine on Feb. 19, 1989. In 2003, authorities linked the two cases to one person’s DNA but could not identify a suspect. Only with the advent of new DNA technology to do extensive genealogical searching were Orange County Sheriff’s Department and Garden Grove Police Department investigators able to put a name to the killer.

Smith lived in Orange County in the 1980s, and in 1998 was accused of attacking a woman in Las Vegas and trying to kill her. ...

    More cases of monkeypox are expected to be identified in the coming days as surveillance is expanded in countries where the disease is not typically found, said the World Health Organization, which identified those most at risk of being infected. "The situation is evolving and WHO expects there will be more cases of monkeypox identified as surveillance expands in non-endemic countries," the WHO said in a statement on Saturday, May 21.  "Immediate actions focus on informing those who may be most at risk for monkeypox infection with accurate information, in order to stop further spread." The WHO noted that "current evidence suggests that those who are most at risk are those who have had close physical contact with someone with monkeypox, while they are symptomatic." As of Saturday, 92 laboratory confirmed cases, and 28 suspected cases of monkeypox with investigations ongoing, have been reported to WHO from 12 countries that are not endemic for monkeypox virus. (See the map above.) No deaths related to those cases have been reported to date, the WHO added. Monkeypox presents as a flu-like illness...

The search is still underway for Evans' body after he presumably drowned Friday after jumping in the water diving Texas and Mexico in an attempt to rescue two men from the current.

    The man who was punched by Mike Tyson after allegedly harassing the boxing legend aboard a JetBlue airplane at the San Francisco Airport has been identified – and he has a lengthy criminal record. Melvin George Townsend III of Punta Gorda, Florida, has served 20- and 15-month prison sentences for a variety of crimes, including possession of Oxycodone, burglary, grand theft, fraud, and trafficking stolen property, according to a records search.

    A 7,200-year-old skeleton of a young female discovered on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi has been identified as a 'new type of ancient human' from a group called the Toaleans, who only died out 1,500 years ago.  An international research team isolated DNA from the ancient homo sapien, who was found in a cave called Leang Panninge ('Bat Cave') on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi.   Christened Bessé, she is the first known skeleton from an early foraging culture called the Toaleans – 'seafaring hunter-gatherers' who lived in South Sulawesi from 8,000 to 1,500 years ago.  Bessé, who was found buried in a foetal position and partially covered by rocks, was somewhere between 17 to 18 years old at time of death, researchers think.  Stone tools and red ochre – iron-rich rock used to make pigment – were found in her grave, along with bones of hunted wild animals.  Bessé is a rare 'genetic fossil', and shares about half of her genetic makeup with present-day Indigenous Australians and people in New Guinea and the Western Pacific islands.   This includes DNA inherited from the now-extinct...
    Police in Salt Lake City, Utah, say DNA technology helped identify skeletal remains found in 1979 as belonging to a local mother who vanished 42 years ago. Sandra Matott, 37, was reported missing July 18, 1979, by her husband Warren Matott, who said she was last seen at a Salt Lake City bar eight days prior. Police said when they attempted to follow up with her husband, they were unable to reach him. About a month later, on Aug. 19, 1979, a homicide investigation was launched after hunters found skeletal remains in Millard County, about 175 miles outside Salt Lake City. Investigators found a ring and watch at the scene, which were both later determined to belong to the missing woman. It took decades of sleuthing to connect the cases, but ultimately DNA samples provided by the missing woman's daughters helped bring closure to the decades-long mystery. 'No matter how much time passes, the detectives of the Salt Lake City Police Department will never let up in their quest to solve every case and to get answers for loved ones,'...
    Authorities in San Diego relied on a combination of advanced DNA testing and genetic genealogy to solve a 1980 cold-case murder of a local college student, identifying the suspected killer as a US Air Force veteran. But for 20-year-old Michelle Wyatt and her family there will be no justice served because John Patrick Hogan, the man who police say strangled the young woman with a telephone cord after raping her, died of a drug overdose in 2004. He was 42 years old.   On Wednesday, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department announced the major break in the Wyatt case, which has been 40 years in the making. Hogan, who was 18 years old at the time of the killing and likely did not know Wyatt, was identified as the suspect after investigators matched hitherto unknown DNA that was collected at the crime scene using commercial genetic genealogy sites, according to a press release. Authorities in San Diego identified the late John Patrick Hogan (left) as the man who they say raped and killed Michelle Wyatt, 20 (right), in October...

    The group of 11 militiamen who ended up in an hours-long standoff with police in Wakefield on Saturday morning espouses a conspiracy-based, anti-government agenda that combines sovereign-citizen beliefs with those of the Moorish Science Temple. The group, self-identified as the Rise of the Moors, live-streamed its standoff on Saturday on its YouTube page, in which its leader, identified on the group’s website as Jamhal Talib Abdullah Beym, said the group is “not anti-government” and was being “extra careful” not to violate the federal laws of the United States. Two group members held a Moroccan flag throughout the exchange, a tenet of the Pawtucket, Rhode Island-based group’s ideology. The flag stems from the the largely Black group’s belief that “a 1787 treaty (fictitious) between the United States and Morocco grants them immunity from U.S. law,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. “Their beliefs tend to be a pretty standard mix of traditional sovereign-citizen beliefs with beliefs adopted or derived from the Moorish Science Temple,” said Mark Pitcavage, a senior research fellow at the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism. The group’s...
    The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department has identified the deputy who is under criminal investigation after being videotaped twice kicking in the head a pursuit suspect in Victorville. Corie Smith has been a member of the department since April of 2016 and was transferred to the Victorville station in September of 2017, sheriff’s spokeswoman Jodi Miller said. After being pursued, Willie C. Jones dropped his motorcycle and entered the parking lot of a car dealership. As a deputy approached, Jones began to lay down on his chest. The deputy then kicked him twice, the video obtained by TMZ shows. Smith is out on paid administrative leave. The Sheriff’s Department is also conducting an administrative investigation to determine whether he violated any department policies.

    A joint Government and NHS public information display indicates that a Covid-19 Variant of Concern has been identified locally and provides guidance for residents on 11th June 2021 in Hounslow, United Kingdom.Mark Kerrison | In Pictures | Getty Images Delta, the highly contagious Covid-19 variant first identified in India, is becoming the dominant variant of the disease worldwide, the World Health Organization's chief scientist said Friday. That's because of its "significantly increased transmissibility," WHO Chief Scientist Soumya Swaminathan said during a news conference at the agency's Geneva headquarters. Studies suggest delta is around 60% more transmissible than alpha, the variant first identified in the U.K. that was more contagious than the original strain that emerged from Wuhan, China in late 2019. The situation globally "is so dynamic because of the variants that are circulating," she added. The variant has spread to more than 80 countries and it continues to mutate as it spreads across the globe, the WHO said Wednesday. It now makes up 10% of all new cases in the United States, up from 6% last week, according to...

    A man shot and killed by Alameda County sheriff’s deputies in unincorporated Hayward last weekend was identified Wednesday by authorities as 26-year-old Matthew Harry. The shooting happened at 4 a.m. Saturday in the 24900 block of Second Street, according to a statement from sheriff’s office spokesman Sgt. Ray Kelly.
