There are few true crime cases that captivated the nation like the murder and disappearance of Laci Peterson. With the new A&E documentary series, The Murder of Laci Peterson, there’s a renewed interest in the case - and it appears that a new generation is learning the chilling details of the murder. One of the most common questions about the case is what was the pregnant 27-year-old's official cause of death when her body was found in 2003 - it turns out, the answer isn’t a simple one. According to Laci’s autopsy, by the time the body was discovered in April (more than four months after her disappearance), it had been so far along in the process of decomposition, it was impossible for the coroner

A Milwaukee high school student has been caught on video beating up his teacher in the middle of class, police said. The shocking cell phone footage captures the moment the 16-year-old lunges at his teacher, punching him and knocking him to the ground, and then continuing the beating. The South Division High School student and teacher can be heard yelling unintelligibly at each other just seconds before the first punch is thrown. Police say the teacher’s injuries were not life-threatening and that they arrested the student, who could face possible charges of battery, local station Fox 6 reported. A Milwaukee schools spokesman said the district is cooperating with police.

In November 2016, Ruud, who had been in casual contact with Leckie for years, “agreed to take Savannah back and she was delivered to Ruud in Ozark County,” wrote a sheriff’s deputy, as he recounted all the things the girl would subsequently endure.
DEAR AMY: My fiance and I are in our late 50s. His late wife (the mother of his 10-year-old daughter) died suddenly and unexpectedly - six years ago. His wife was younger than he, and he has not dated anyone since her death. That is, until me. Before his wife died, she shared a bed with their daughter. He slept alone.

This means that he and I can only be intimate when she is not home. We’ve talked about this issue as an impediment to getting married. For many reasons, I refuse to sleep in the bed with him and his daughter, as he’s asked me to do. I
