    KIMBALL, Minnesota (WCCO) — A brutal murder has haunted a tiny central Minnesota town for decades. Next week will mark 40 years since Myrtle Cole, who was 81 years old, died inside her Fairhaven home. Investigators hope a public push for help could finally close the case. Dorothy Kersten and Verna Salmela were mothers raising their families when someone killed Myrtle Cole on the morning of Dec. 12, 1981. “It was unbelievable that a small town like ours that something like that should happen,” Salmela said. “It did change our lives,” Kersten said. A quiet widow who hosted weekly Bible studies in a modest home without running water, Cole was strangled and stabbed after her killer broke through a window. “My mother-in-law was never the same after that. She was so sorrowful over losing such a good friend,” Selmela said. Forty years later there is a renewed push to find the person who did it. Two billboards went up this week near Kimball, asking for tips and advertising a reward. The best piece of evidence in this case is a bloody...
    A soldier who was killed inaction over 70 years ago has been identified, according to a release on Thursday by the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency. Army Sgt. James N. Stryker, 20, of West Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, who was killed during the Korean War, was identified by DPAA on Aug. 5, 2020. DNA analysis was used to identify Sgt. Stryker’s remains were buried as Unknowns at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, also known as the Punchbowl, in Honolulu, Hawaii, the release says. The remains were originally labelled Unknown X-1373 Tanggok but now his name will be recorded on the American Battle Monuments Commission’s Courts of the Missing at the Punchbowl, according to the release.

    Jets coach Robert Saleh only worked at Central Michigan with Brian Kelly for one year, as a defensive assistant in 2004, and it was not a happy one. Saleh and now-Packers coach Matt LaFleur, the older brother of Jets coordinator Mike LaFleur, were on Kelly’s staff as low-level assistants in their 20s. According to a 2019 ESPN article, they thought they were invited to a party at Kelly’s house, only to realize they were the help. “We shoveled the snow and parked all the cars,” Saleh told ESPN in 2019, when he was still the 49ers’ defensive coordinator. “Then, at the end of the night, we had to go get the cars again.” In an article published in 2020, Kelly did call Saleh “special,” but also seemingly went out of his way to tell an embarrassing story about Saleh passing out from dehydration. It’s the classic high-handed, shameless behavior from Kelly that everyone has gotten to know from him over his rise from the mid-majors to Notre Dame coach. And it’s one of many anecdotes that...

    Forty years ago, actress Natalie Wood drowned off the coast of Catalina Island. Authorities classified her death as an accident, concluding the 43-year-old star of “West Side Story,” who couldn’t swim, had been drinking the night before she was found floating face-down in the ocean waters. Her death has been a Hollywood mystery, the topic of tabloid speculation, TV specials and books that explored whether she was the victim of a homicide. The theory gained dramatic interest a decade ago. In 2011, 30 years after Wood’s death, Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials reopened the investigation. Then, in 2013, county coroner’s officials changed Wood’s cause of death from “accidental drowning” to “drowning and other undetermined factors.” The new coroner’s report cited fresh bruises on the actress’ arms and knee, along with a scratch on her neck and a scrape on her forehead, as evidence that she might have been assaulted before she drowned. The new report also noted “conflicting statements” about when Wood disappeared and whether she had argued with her husband, actor Robert Wagner, who — along with Christopher...

    (CNN)The phone connection between a Venezuelan prison cell and Houston, Texas, crackles and fades. Jorge Toledo sounds tired. He's been held for four years, one of six former executives of Venezuela's US-based oil refining company CITGO convicted of corruption. The sounds of prison life echo as he greets his wife, Carmen. Read More "Hola mi vida. I wanted to talk to you a little bit," he says. These calls are his only link to the outside world and his family back in the United States. Besides Toledo, the "CITGO 6" include Venezuelan-born American citizens Gustavo Cárdenas, José Luis Zambrano, Tomeu Vadell and Alirio José Zambran, as well as permanent US resident José Ángel Pereira. They have become pawns in the long-running confrontation between the United States and the Venezuelan regime of embattled President Nicolas Maduro, a CNN investigation has found. US government and private efforts to win their release have come to nothing, and they now face a fifth year incarcerated. Toledo's health has suffered during four years of deprivation, both his family and lawyers say. "When he left...

READ MORE: Scammers Using Fake Shopping Sites, Taking Advantage Of Supply Chain IssuesCBS Pittsburgh’s Jon Delano says Thanksgiving has always been special for his family. His ninth great-grandfather, Philippe de Lannoy, arrived in Plymouth in late 1621 after the first Thanksgiving and has often wondered what he missed when 90 Native Americans and 52 Pilgrim survivors enjoyed the first harvest feast. “There are two eyewitness accounts of that event which was a three-day harvest festival with lots of feasting and fellowship.

    Associated Press NEW YORK — Two men convicted in the assassination of Malcolm X are set to be cleared after more than half a century, with prosecutors now saying authorities withheld evidence in the civil rights leader’s killing, according to a news report Wednesday. The New York Times reported Wednesday that Muhammad Aziz and the late Khalil Islam, who spent decades in prison for the crime, were being exonerated after a nearly two-year investigation by their lawyers and the Manhattan district attorney’s office. A court date is expected Thursday. “These men did not get the justice that they deserved,” District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. told the newspaper. One of the civil rights era’s most controversial and compelling figures, Malcolm X rose to fame as the Nation of Islam’s chief spokesperson, proclaiming the Black Muslim organization’s message at the time: racial separatism as a road to self-actualization. He famously urged Black people to claim civil rights “by any means necessary.” He was gunned down as he began a speech in Harlem’s Audubon Ballroom on Feb. 21, 1965. Aziz, Islam...

In April 1986, Love was working the 3 p.m. to midnight shift at DFW Airport. “She had come home from that shift, and that’s when we believe she was attacked, shortly after she came home,” said Sgt.

    (CNN)The city of Abbotsford in British Columbia, just north of the US border near Vancouver, recorded its hottest day ever in late June when temperatures climbed to 109 degrees Fahrenheit during an unprecedented heat wave.Just 140 days later, it smashed another record: The city on Sunday observed its wettest day with nearly four inches of heavy rainfall in less than 24 hours. Human-caused climate change has increased the potential for "weather whiplash," where conditions whip dramatically between extremes.

    The phrase “behind the scenes” was made for James Capoot. While he was highly respected by his peers for doing his job for 19 years with the Vallejo police, it was Capoot’s under-the-radar humanitarian, altruistic and plain-ol’ Southern hospitality that endeared him to an entire community. Many believe Capoot did his best work outside the requirements of the men in blue. Capt. Jason Potts got a glimpse of the extensive altruism soon after Capoot was shot and killed on Nov. 17, 2011. It was Potts’ job to assess the impact Capoot had on the Vallejo community. “It was unbelievable,” Potts said. “It made me think, ‘Am I doing enough in policing?’” Capoot would donate a television and mount it for a low-income senior in North Vallejo, or attend a neighborhood barbecue on his own time with his wife at his side. More than one resident told Potts that Capoot “was not only a police officer, he’s a friend.” Ret. Officer Alan Caragan, who delivered Capoot’s eulogy, remembered a trip to Royal Jelly Donuts with Capoot “and there was a lady...
    PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Chinese businesswoman convicted of trespassing at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club and lying to Secret Service agents was deported over the weekend, federal authorities said, more than two years after serving her sentence. Yujing Zhang was turned over to immigration officials in December 2019 after serving her eight-month sentence. But she was held at the Glades County Detention Center for three times as long as her prison term mainly because of deportation delays during the COVID-19 pandemic, immigration authorities told the Miami Herald. At the time of her sentencing, the then 33-year-old Zhang went to Mar-a-Lago “to meet the president and family and just make friends.” When an incredulous judge questioned her about whether she thought she could really meet the Trumps, Zhang laughed loudly and said she hoped to meet other people, too. Zhang then told U.S. District Judge Roy Altman that the president told reporters that he had invited Zhang to Mar-a-Lago. But Altman said that was another lie. It’s unclear what Zhang’s motives were, but the judge said it was clearly...

Think positive!” Ruth Nolan grew up in the Mojave Desert and now teaches creative writing at College of the Desert.
