The Alabama hostage situation, in which a man held a boy in a bunker for seven days, ended with the suspect dead and the 5-year-old safely rescued.
Reports of an explosion at Jimmy Lee Dykes’ Midland City property came first on Monday afternoon, followed shortly by media reports of his death.
At a hastily organized roadside press conference near the crime scene, FBI agent Steve Richardson said negotiations had deteriorated over the last 24 hours.
He said they entered the bunker shortly after 3 p.m. fearing the child was “in imminent danger,” because they’d seen Dykes, 65,More >
The astonishing Connecticut school shooting Friday claimed the lives of 26 people in Newtown, Conn., will be tragically remembered for the 20 small children slain.
Six adults were also killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School, however, notably Dawn Hochsprung, the principal and a committed educator beloved by students.
The principal died trying to protect the students she cared for every day.
The gunman, identified as 20-year-old Adam Lanza, started his rampage in the school’s main office, where Hochsprung had reportedly come out of a meeting.
Hochsprung was killed in theMore >
The mystery behind Sage Stallone’s death will, unfortunately, remain unsolved for at least another month or so.
An autopsy has been performed on the 36-year old son of actor Sylvester Stallone, who was found dead in his home on Friday, but a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Coroner tells CNN it still requires the results of toxicology tests. This typically takes six weeks.
Meanwhile, while initial reports claimed that Stallone passed away from some kind of drug overdose, his attorney says Sage never showed any signs of substance abuse. According to George Braunstein, Stallone didn’tMore >
As has become our post-debate tradition, here’s a highlight reel of last night’s Republican CNN gathering in Arizona … featuring Ron Paul and only Ron Paul.
He may be marginalized by the mainstream media, but he’s shown no signs of quitting the GOP race, and was dishing it out left and right Wednesday.
Like a boss.
In particular, Paul took it to Rick Santorum so hard over his federal spending record, some are speculating that he made an alliance with Mitt Romney.
It’s probably just that – speculation – but make no mistake, the Texas Congressman was on his game at last night’s RepublicanMore >
Miley Cyrus gave an inspiring performance at an inspiring event last night.
The singer took to the stage at CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute, a campaign that honors individuals who go to impressive lengths to serve others. She presented one honoree with an award and then sang a rendition of her hit, “The Climb.” Watch now:
Who says Miley Cyrus is not a role model? Oh, right. Miley Cyrus herself. But should she act as one? Compare her view to that or Taylor Swift and vote NOW!
Remember Steven Slater?
A little over a year after he rose to national prominence by quitting his job as a JetBlue flight attendant – via a meltdown that included screaming at a passenger and sliding down the emergency escape – this Long island resident is free from the constraints of the law.
Slater was sentence to a year of probation after the incident, which included court-mandated mental health appointments. He was also forced to pay JetBlue $10,000 in restitution for the emergency slide.

It may be the fantasy of warm-blooded males around the globe, but for Scarlett Johansson, it’s a nightmare: naked photos of the actress have leaked online, as the FBI is actively involved in what’s become an ongoing celebrity hacking scandal.
Yesterday, in an interview with CNN, the gorgeous actress spoke on the mess and the rights she still believes she possesses, despite her fame:
“Just because you’re in the spotlight, or just because you’re an actor or making films or whatever, doesn’t mean that you’re not entitled to your own personal privacy,” Scarlett said. “I think no matter whatMore >
[HMG] – In a heartening blend of skillful police work and long-delayed karma, Joran van der Sloot has now been charged with the murder of Stephany Flores Ramirez, whose body was discovered last month in a Lima hotel room booked in van der Sloot’s name.

Officers promptly attended the scene and report finding several bottles of prescription meds such as Ambien, which had been filled less than ten days before but were now empty. They also found a handwritten note suggesting ShawnMore >
It seems like just a few months ago that we were buzzing over Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” music video. We suppose it was. But she’s already got a new hit.
On the singer’s CNN appearance Tuesday night, she told Larry King that the music video for her current single, “Alejandro,” will be premiering very soon.
She explained that the video has a “homoerotic military theme.”
Well, sure, all the good ones do. While it won’t address hermaphrodite rumors the way “Telephone” did, it does contain an important theme for Lady G.
“It is a celebration of my love and appreciation for the gay community, myMore >
