CBS Seattle

REDMOND, Wash. (AP) — Police say they have been unable to talk to a Redmond man and his 4-year-old son about their drug overdoses because of their medical condition.

They have been sedated in hospitals in stable condition since Tuesday when they were discovered by the man’s wife at their home.

Drugs and drug paraphernalia indicated they had been injected with heroin.

Police say they have no reason to believe anyone else was involved.

CBS San Francisco

SANTA CRUZ (CBS SF) – A 31-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of stalking and photographing female students near Santa Cruz high schools, police said.

Detectives arrested Santa Cruz resident Joshua Paul James on Tuesday after two student athletes at Santa Cruz High School told them that a suspicious person had followed them in a car as they ran through the neighborhood as part of their training on Monday, Santa Cruz police said.

On Tuesday, detectives were following up on the previous day’s report when more suspicious activity was reported near Pacific Collegiate School on Swift Street, according to police.

A male suspect appeared to be photographing or filming female students on or near school grounds, police said.

Descriptions of the suspect in both incidents were similar, police said.

Detectives looked for the suspect’s vehicle and found his car parked in a lot near Front and Laurel streets.

Ex-Boxer Charged With Murder in 1987 Death of His Manager


A former professional boxer has been arrested in San Fernando on suspicion of killing his manager in 1987 after DNA evidence brought new leads in a cold case, authorities said.

Exum Speight, 50, was taken into custody Wednesday morning by members of an FBI and LAPD task force that seeks fugitives.

He was charged with one count of murder in the killing of Douglas Stumler, who died at his apartment in West Los Angeles on March 29, 1987, according to an LAPD news release.

Stumler, who was a Los Angeles County Housing Authority employee, was also working as a boxing manager and handling Speight, authorities said.

Cold case detectives with the Los Angeles Police Department screened the evidence for new leads under a federal grant that supports the use of DNA analysis. DNA evidence played a key role in the arrest, police said.

Exum Speight fought Wladimir Klitschko, the current heavyweight…

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A woman is recovering at home after she was hit by a car while riding horses with her husband Sunday evening in Kansas City, Mo.

They were riding about a block from their home on Blue Parkway near 63rd Street.

“I have no recollection of being hit. I don’t remember any of that,” says Dawn Dudley, who is relying on details from her husband Craig as to how she suffered a concussion.

“He said the car kind of side swiped him first and then came into me from behind and hit me,” she said. “He said, ‘I watched you do somersaults in the air.'”

“The impact sounded like an explosion or something,” said Craig.

The driver didn’t stop.

“They left us for dead. My horse did die. I could have been dead. My husband said he thought I was dead. It’s horrible you…

[worldnow id=9346580 width=385 height=288 type=video]

GREENVILLE, Texas (CBS 11 NEWS) – When 16-year-old Alicia Moore disappeared from her Greenville bus stop last year, it was clear that the community cared.  Strangers searched, prayed, and tied on purple ribbons.  And, prior to her murder, someone questioned whether the special needs teen was safe.

A referral was made to Child Protective Services alleging possible abuse or neglect.  But, CPS officials won’t say when that referral was made… telling CBS 11 that the agency is “not at liberty to release any details of our possible involvements with the Moore family.”  According to CPS Spokesperson Marissa Gonzales, “she was not in foster care, so any details would not be public record.”

However, three felony indictments unsealed today name three CPS caseworkers connected to that initial investigation.  Laura Ard, Natalie Ausbie Reynolds, and Rebekah Ross were arrested and charged with tampering with evidence. They have…

CBS Los Angeles

COSTA MESA (CBSLA.com) — A Costa Mesa man accused of leaving his 80-year-old mother on a bathroom floor for two days has been jailed on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter and elder abuse.

Robert Dickerman, 47, was arrested Tuesday, nearly 15 months after his mother, Yoshiko Dickerman, died of sepsis at Orange Coast Memorial Hospital, where she was transported after police found her lying in a puddle of urine.

Costa Mesa police Sgt. Ed Everett told City News Service authorities arrived to the woman’s residence at 938 Azalea Drive about 2:20 a.m. on July 3, 2012 to a report of a combative woman.

Dickerman reportedly told investigators he had been caring for his mother since 2001 and that she was injured when she had fallen off a toilet two days prior.

He claimed he left her there after she refused his help.

She died the following day.

Dickerman is being held…

Missing Teenage Girls’ Car Believed to be Found 40 Years Later


[ooyala code=”RtMzV5ZTrxbEC5Xw3HFylctfpCtblqPJ” player_id=”b248f00b9d6e4d7ba21cbc796a85f61c”]

(CNN) — They were 17-year-old high school students driving to a party at a gravel pit. Perhaps they took a wrong turn; perhaps there was foul play. For 42 years, authorities have had no idea how Cheryl Miller and Pamela Jackson disappeared.

Now there may finally be answers.

A car that appears to be theirs was spotted in a creek just half a mile from the girls’ intended destination near Beresford, South Dakota, reported CNN affiliate KTIV-TV in Sioux City, Iowa. The license plate and hubcap match those of the car they were in when they vanished in 1971.

The timing is especially poignant. Jackson’s father died last week at the age of 102. His funeral was Saturday. The car was found Monday.

South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley and Union County Sheriff Dan Limoges said the vehicle, discovered in an embankment in Brule Creek, will be…
