    The son of a prominent South Carolina attorney found murdered on his family’s property may have been the intended target of the shooting, which also left his mother dead, according to a local report.

The University of South Carolina student and Maggie Murdaugh, 52, were found shot to death Monday on their sprawling estate in the center of the state.

    A mysterious sonic boom shook parts of California and Mexico Tuesday evening, marking the third time since February residents have experienced an incident that many are calling a ‘skyquake.’ Officials are unsure what caused the loud sound, but flight tracking data showed an unidentified plane traveling at supersonic speeds off the coast of San Diego County around 8:20pm PST - minutes before the skyquake was heard. Flight tracking data captured an aircraft soaring at altitudes between 20,000 and 25,000 feet that hit a recorded speed of 967 knots, or 1,112mph.

    Unemployment fraud throughout the COVID-19 pandemic could cost $400 billion as fraudsters and criminal groups may have stolen nearly half of all unemployment benefits during that time, experts told Axios. Blake Hall, CEO of the online identity network ID.me, estimated that the U.S. lost more than $400 billion to fraudulent claims during the pandemic, Axios first reported Thursday. He also said up to 50% of all benefits offered through unemployment may have been stolen. Haywood Talcove, CEO of the data and analytics firm LexisNexis Risk Solutions, estimated that at least 70% of the money stolen by fraudsters ultimately went overseas. He also said the remainder largely went to domestic street gangs, who have accounted for a greater share of credit card and insurance fraud in recent years. Talcove told Axios that stolen unemployment benefits carried abroad largely ended up in the hands of foreign criminal groups in countries like China, Nigeria and Russia. He noted that many of these groups “are definitely backed by the state.” NEW: Criminals may have stolen as much as half of the unemployment benefits the...

    A trove of 118 silver coins was unearthed in a forest in northeastern Poland in March that experts believe may have been part of an ancient bribe. The coins, minted in the 9th century during the Carolingian Empire, are the largest number of their kind ever found in Poland. Experts believe the hoard may have been part of a bribe to protect Paris from being sacked by Vikings more than a thousand years ago.   Scroll down for video More than 100 silver coins from the Carolingian Empire were found in a forest in northeast Poland in March.

    More On: Anthony Fauci Sen. Paul: Fauci emails prove he knew of Wuhan gain of function research Flipping Fauci: Emails show he constantly changed mind on wearing masks to fight COVID Fauci emails all the more reason for US to get to bottom of COVID origins ‘Worse than we thought’: GOP pols rip Fauci after truth comes out in emails Dr. Anthony Fauci rejected claims that he was warned last January that the coronavirus could have been “engineered” — as emails released through FOIA show he was told of “unusual features of the virus” at the beginning of the pandemic — instead blaming the reports on critics who “resent” him. “There is no doubt that there are people out there who, for one reason or another, resent me for what I did in the last administration, which was not anything that was anti-Trump at all,” Fauci, a top adviser on the coronavirus to President Biden, said on MSNBC’s “Deadline” Wednesday evening. But Fauci also admitted that he ​​​”​can’t guarantee everything that is going on in the Wuhan lab​”​ ​amid mounting...
    Donald Trump's former White House chief of staff has urged Congress to hold another hearing with Dr Anthony Fauci, to question him on what he knew about suggestions that COVID-19 could have escaped from a laboratory. Mark Meadows on Wednesday night told Fox News that the release of 3,000 of Fauci's emails earlier in the day made another hearing essential. Fauci has appeared before Congress several times to discuss the origins of the pandemic. He has confirmed that the U.S. did provide $600,000 over five years to the Wuhan laboratory, to fund their research into coronaviruses transmitted from animals to humans. He also told Congress that, even though the grant stipulated that no research be done into 'gain of function' - making viruses more lethal or transmissible - he had no way of guaranteeing that the money was not used for the controversial science. On Wednesday his emails, obtained by BuzzFeed News via a Freedom of Information Act request, showed that Fauci was warned that the coronavirus was possibly 'engineered' in a lab before the pandemic started. Mark Meadows,...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci dismissed recent revelations that he was warned at the start of pandemic that COVID-19 may have been 'engineered' and said on Wednesday that the emails are 'really ripe to be taken out of context.' Fauci made his comments in an interview with NewsNation Now anchor Leland Vittert on The Donlon Report where he also admitted he 'can't guarantee everything that is going on in the Wuhan lab.'  Fauci, who is considered America's top expert on infectious disease, also explained why scientists focused their theories on the natural transmission from bats to humans through an intermediary species. The interview comes after a trove of 3,200 of Fauci's emails from January to June 2020 were obtained and published by Buzzfeed on Tuesday that showed leading virus experts warned him COVID-19 may have been created in a lab while he publicly played such claims down. 'The only trouble is they are really ripe to be taken out of context where someone can snip out a sentence in an email without showing the other emails, and say 'based on an email from Dr. Fauci, he said such...
    ANTHONY Fauci's emails show he was told Covid may have been engineered at the beginning of the pandemic, but publicly downplayed the theory. The emails also reveal that Fauci got a personal thank you note from the head of a nonprofit that used a government grant to fund research at the Wuhan lab suspected in the lab leak theory. 5Dr Fauci recently said he's 'not convinced' the virus developed naturallyCredit: The Mega Agency 5The Wuhan Institute of Virology is at the center of the lab leak theoryCredit: AFP More than 3,000 pages of Fauci's emails were obtained through the Freedom of Information Act and published on Tuesday by Buzzfeed. The contents of some of the messages have led to renewed calls for Fauci, the longtime head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, to be fired from Republicans like Sen Rand Paul and Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Fauci's foes such as Sen. Rand Paul and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene called for him to be fired on Twitter with the hashtag #FireFauci gaining in popularity.  At 7:30am, Paul Tweeted, 'Told you #firefauci ... Can't wait to see the media try to spin the Fauci FOIA emails.' About 4.5 hours later - shortly before noon - Paul Tweeted again saying, 'But even more importantly than being a hero, he was a fraud. A massive fraud. The newly released trove of emails to and from Dr. Fauci makes that abundantly clear.' Taylor Greene seized the opportunity to criticize Fauci, who's considered America's top infectious disease expert.  'After reading through Anthony Fauci's leaked emails, it's more clear than ever that our country needs to #FireFauci,' she Tweeted.  The lawmakers were referring to a Freedom of...

    Archaeologists discovered an arrowhead made from bone near the ancient Israeli city of Gath, the Biblical home of Goliath, according to a newly published study. The findings, published in Near Eastern Archaeology, note the arrowhead was initially discovered in 2019 and was likely comprised of cattle metapodial.  It's believed the near 3,000-year-old arrowhead was used by the city's defenders, but the researchers said they can not rule out the possibility it belonged to the Aramaean attackers. 'These bones were specifically selected for the job given their large size from which multiple points could be made, and their thick layer of hard compact bone that was cut following the length of the bone, that is, its longitudinal axis,' the researchers wrote in the study. 'This would make the artifacts extremely robust and capable of withstanding impact.' It's possible that the arrowhead was produced in a workshop about 1,000 feet from where the arrowhead was discovered, in the ancient city of Gath.

    A shadowy crooked collector is believed to have ordered the £1million raid on Arundel Castle to steal Mary Queen of Scots' rosary beads. Experts think it likely a callous curator - possible from overseas - commissioned the audacious smash and grab on the historic building. Alarms at the West Sussex castle were tripped at 10.30pm on Friday night and a 4x4, found soon after, is being examined by police forensic teams to establish if it was part of the daring robbery. The historic heist this morning became the centre of a number of theories, including the precious metal mementos could be sold on the dark web or even melted down. While Sussex Police refused to comment for 'operational reasons' experts said the thought they would end up in a private secret collection. Historian Marcus Cribb said: 'Thinking of their team, who must have done everything they could to prevent such a crime, but sometimes, the criminals persist. 'Sadly many items have been stolen but there are national and international teams that work to recover them. 'Usually because big gangs are...
    Hard-left Labour Party politician Diane Abbott said that “Nobody should have to potentially pay with their life because they stood up for racial justice” after BLM activist Sasha Johnson was shot in London — but police say there is currently no evidence the attack was targeted. “Black activist #SashaJohnson in hospital in critical condition after sustaining a gunshot wound to the head,” the Hackney MP wrote on Twitter, adding: “Nobody should have to potentially pay with their life because they stood up for racial justice” with the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter. However, there is no evidence that Johnson, the self-styled ‘Black Panther of Oxford’ who was reportedly shot in the early hours of Sunday morning, was targeted because she “stood up for racial justice” — indeed, London’s Metropolitan Police have stressed that “there is nothing to suggest that the woman who was shot was the subject of a targeted attack or that she had received any credible threats against her prior to this incident” in a statement which is believed to refer to the incident. “I recognise that this incident will have shocked those...

    As Nature reports, there is some good news on the COVID-19 front. Scientists are close to identifying the factors that provide immunity from being infected by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and even a tiny amount of the right “neutralizing antibodies” appears to offer powerful protection. Combine that with previous studies showing that mRNA vaccines generate large amounts of these antibodies from a single dose, with new results showing that mixing doses of different vaccines can produce an even more potent response, and it appears that the world may have everything it needs to fend of the current pandemic—so long as those vaccines get to the nations, and people, who need them most.  However, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage across the globe, and as an article in The Lancet shows, the latest wave of cases is hitting Africa particularly hard. A higher percentage of patients are turning up critically ill, and a higher percentage of that group is dying. Why this is happening, even in places where the healthcare system has not yet been overwhelmed by cases, isn’t clear. What is clear is that over a dozen nations in...

    Associated Press executive editor Sally Buzbee was booked as a guest on CNN’s Reliable Sources to discuss being chosen the next executive editor of the Washington Post, making her the first woman in that role. However, Buzbee ended up joining Stelter for another segment of the show, in response to the Israeli airstrike on a building that housed offices for Al Jazeera and the AP’s Gaza bureau.

Buzbee told Stelter that AP employees in Gaza are “doing fine” and are “focused on telling the story fairly.” “They’re rattled, but they are working today,” she said.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). But now a TV station in her home state has dug up paperwork pointing to a problem that is far more than a PR issue: that Greene and her husband seem to have been claiming a lucrative tax break on two houses in two different Georgia counties, in violation of the law.  Channel 2 Action News in Atlanta revealed last night that it had obtained paperwork through public records requests that showed Greene and her husband claiming what’s called a “homestead exemption” on two properties—one in Fulton Country and one in Floyd County,...

    A $26 million lottery ticket was sold in Norwalk, California about six months ago. Regulars and workers at the gas station that sold the ticket believe it was accidentally destroyed in the wash by a woman whose coworker bought it for her. CBS Los Angeles spoke with a regular named Bobby Henley who says he ran into the unidentified woman. She had until Thursday to come forward and claim her prize. "Her clothes were washed and when she pulled it out, it was all crumpled up into little pieces and she said she frantically tried to put it back together, but she couldn't," Henley told CBS Los Angeles. Workers say they've seen the woman on security video that was given to California Lottery officials, but the footage is not enough to verify that she was the winner. Officials said she must either present the ticket or have photographs of the front and back of the ticket in order to claim her prize. She may be able to file a claim for an investigation, however.

    Former President George W. Bush has been quiet on the purge of Liz Cheney from House leadership, but Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush is attempting to fill the void with a statement that’s everything you’d expect from a Trump-supporting Bush. The former president’s nephew was asked about Cheney’s ouster on Wednesday’s edition of The Mark Davis Show, and he told the host that the vote to eliminate Rep. Cheney from leadership was “a good thing” because she should have been “training fire” on President Joe Biden, and not “training fire” on “the president” — who is Joe Biden in real life, but apparently is still Donald Trump in P. Bush’s imagination. Perhaps P. Bush thought better of using a metaphor like “training fire” to an audience whose spiritual leader incited a deadly insurrection and other violent acts, or perhaps he didn’t think “training” sounded tough enough, or was too grammatical, but when it came time to transcribe the response for a meme, he altered it. “So instead of reigning fire on the President, she really should have been reigning...
    Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) said her Republican colleagues feel “threatened” by the idea of a Congressional commission to investigate the January 6th storming of the U.S. Capitol. Cheney gave an interview to NBC’s Savannah Guthrie shortly after the House GOP ousted her as their conference chairwoman because she refuses to fall in line behind former President Donald Trump and his 2020 election lies. The vote was a dramatic shift from a previous vote that failed to oust Cheney, so when Guthrie asked her “what changed” since then, Cheney answered “for reasons that I don’t understand, leaders in my party have decided to embrace the former president who launched that attack.” “This isn’t about looking backwards,” Cheney said. “This is about the real-time, current potential damage that he’s doing, that he continues to do.” “Some of your colleagues say though we supported you before Congresswoman Cheney, you made your point, now drop it, let’s focus on the future,” Guthrie said. “Well it is an ongoing threat, so silence is not an option,” Cheney countered. Guthrie moved on by asking Cheney what...

    Massachusetts reached a new milestone in its quest to administer COVID-19 vaccines to millions of eligible adults before the summer. The commonwealth crossed three million vaccinations on Tuesday, May 11, as the total who are fully vaccinated hit 3,005,473 since the pandemic began, up from 2,962,937 the previous day and less than 2.7 million a week prior. By comparison, it took the state until Friday, March 19 to hit the one million vaccine benchmark, and less than a month to hit two million on Saturday, April 17. A total of 6,849,573 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Massachusetts as of May 11. “Massachusetts crossed another milestone today with 3 million people now fully vaccinated!

    CRESTONE, Colo. (CBS4) – A promise of awakening, peace, love and unity. That’s what former followers of the cult Love Has Won say lured them into the orbit of Amy Carlson, who called herself Mother God. But they say they found a different reality when they met Carlson. Deputies in Saguache County found her mummified body in a home in Crestone after a call from the father of a 2-year-old who said his son was being held in the home. (credit: CBS) Carlson, who also went by Lia, started her foray into the world of Love Has Won in 2006, according to her family during an appearance on “Dr. Phil” in September 2020. Former member Andrew Profaci told CBS4’s Dominic Garcia he was drawn to the group when he was on a path of awakening and found what he called the “team” on one of their chat rooms. When he arrived, Profaci said Carlson told him he would be Father God to her Mother God. He eventually left saying the group saying his growth was taking him in another...
    The sister of Suzanne Morphew, the Colorado mom who went missing last Mother's Day, says financial issues may have caused tension between her and her husband, Barry Morphew, who is now charged with murder.  "Financial pressure bears in on people very heavily. It creates an atmosphere of discontent and strife and sometimes living beyond your means is a very hard thing to do," Morphew sister, Melinda Moorman, told CBS4. "Learning to be content with what you have is a very powerful thing in this life, and it brings great peace, and I don’t think Barry and Suzanne had gotten there yet," Morphew’s husband, 53-year-old Barry Morphew, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of first-degree murder and other charges in his wife’s presumed death. His arrest came as the result of an ongoing investigation that has so far involved over 135 searches across Colorado and the interviews of over 400 people in multiple states, Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze said.

But if most polls are right, only the size of Sturgeon’s victory in Scotland is in question.

It is kept aloft by the romance of independence, by anti-English grievance and by a cynical strategy of hoovering up credit for any successes while blaming Westminster’s Tories for every failure. Support for independence, a road to ruin for Scotland, appears even lower now than when it was rejected in 2014. Most Scots don’t want another referendum, for years if ever. But a new majority...
