    For the first time on Black Friday, more shoppers will be buying their gifts online than in stores, according to a survey. As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to surge across the country, 58 percent of consumers are ditching long-held traditions of trekking out to shopping malls and stores to scoop up bargains, making their purchases on the web instead, according to a Deloitte survey of 1,200 shoppers between Oct. 9 and Nov. 2.

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — One person was killed in a shooting Sunday outside a gun show at a former shopping mall in Ohio, police said. Sheriff's office detectives have not identified a suspect in the shooting at the Westland Mall building in west Columbus, Franklin County Public Information Officer Marc Gofstein said. The victim's identity was withheld until authorities could contact next of kin, Gofstein said. The county sheriff's office received a call of shots fired around 4 p.m. The victim died at the scene, Gofstein said.

    Obsessively jealous and fiercely loyal, this is the woman who called herself Jeffery Epstein’s girlfriend and was the last person to speak with the monstrous pedophile before his prison death last August. Seen here exclusively and for the first time since her identity was revealed in March, Karyna Shuliak, 31, was with Epstein on his private jet when he was arrested last July as the FBI swooped on him when he landed from Paris back at Teterboro, New Jersey. Shuliak, from Belarus, was known as ‘the inspector’ for her obsessive snooping on Epstein during their relationship that lasted up to a decade. Now, DailyMail.com has these exclusive pictures that offer the first glimpse of Shuliak's furtive existence since then. Dressed casually in white shorts and a lilac polo shirt, with her long brown hair pulled back into a loose ponytail, nothing about Shuliak’s lowkey appearance suggests the world of wealth and depravity in which she once moved. Shuliak spent close to an hour inside a nutritional health store on New York’s Upper East Side before browsing the aisles of a...
    The ex-wife of Golden State Killer Joseph DeAngelo has broken her silence for the first time in over two years since he was arrested for 13 known murders and dozens of rapes across California.   Sharon Huddle, a Sacramento divorce attorney, shared her devastation at learning the truth about her ex-husband and his heinous crimes in a victim impact statement submitted to Sacramento Superior Court Judge Michael Bowman this week.   Huddle, who did not mention DeAngelo by name in her statement, described how she has suffered from post traumatic stress disorder and lived in constant fear ever since he was identified as the Golden State Killer.  DeAngelo, 74, in June pleaded guilty to 13 counts of murder and 13 counts of kidnapping that occurred between 1975 and 1986. He also confessed to 161 other crimes - many of which were rapes - that he couldn't be charged for because they took place outside the statute of limitations.  He is set to be sentenced on Friday and faces life in prison after avoiding the death penalty under a plea deal with prosecutors.  ...
