Washington State University is reeling after learning a star football player was found dead in his apartment Tuesday afternoon.
Pullman Police released a statement saying officers arrived to find quarterback Tyler Hilinski, 21, dead. Police went there for a welfare check after the young QB failed to show up for practice.
Hilinski was a redshirt sophomore and appeared in several games last season when starter Luke Falk struggled. Hilinski’s best performance was helping WSU come back from 21 points down in the fourth quarter to beat Boise State in triple overtime. Continue reading
The owner of Soley Zen Massage, Dayna Jennings, has been charged with first-degree murder after police say she killed her father and encased his body in her Colorado home.
Jennings, 44, of Federal Heights, was arrested Wednesday and charged in the death of her father, 69-year-old William Mussack, whose remains were found inside a home in the 10000 block of Eliot Circle in Federal Heights, the District Attorney’s Office said Tuesday.
Court documents say dad’s body was found in the crawl space encased in concrete and Jennings admitted to pouring that concrete. Although those documents do not list a cause of death, it does say family members believe Mussack was drugged because of a prior incident where he was found unconscious for 15 hours last December after taking a bite of a hamburger Jennings gave to him. Jennings has been charged with first-degree murder after deliberation and tampering with a deceased human body. Continue reading
Around 8:05 p.m. tonight, January 16, 2018, many reported seeing a bright flash travel across the sky. Some even heard a loud noise. Initially it appears it may be a meteor that traveled across the sky.

One social media post to me said there was even a loud noise. Highland Township reported a loud noise.
Here’s the video from Phil K’s security camera in southeast Michigan.
According to a Department of Justice release Tuesday, the FBI has named a 13-year CIA veteran as the man revealing the top secret identities of numerous CIA informants to China.
Jerry Chun Shing Lee, who worked at the bureau between 1994 and 2007 – but maintained a top secret clearance – is accused of exposing a steady stream of CIA informants to the Chinese. An act which directly led to their untimely deaths, reports say.
The New York Times reports that China began killing informants to the CIA in 2012 in what is considered one of the intelligence community’s greatest failures.
After a “mole hunt” to capture who might have been spilling secrets, the FBI arrested a former CIA employee who was caught with top secret information. Continue reading

Even thermometers can’t keep up with the plunging temperatures in Russia’s remote Yakutia region, which hit minus 67 degrees Celsius (minus 88.6 degrees Fahrenheit) in some areas Tuesday.
In Yakutia — a region of 1 million people about 3,300 miles (5,300 kilometers) east of Moscow — students routinely go to school even in minus 40 degrees. But school was canceled Tuesday throughout the region and police ordered parents to keep their children inside.
In the village of Oymyakon, one of the coldest inhabited places on earth, state-owned Russian television showed the mercury falling to the bottom of a thermometer that was only set up to measure down to minus 50 degrees.
In 2013, Oymyakon recorded an all-time low of minus 71 degrees Celsius (minus 98 Fahrenheit).

On Saturday, people in Hawaii were awakened by a terrifying false alert about an inbound missile. Hawaii’s Emergency Management Agency has said a worker clicked the wrong item in a drop-down menu and sent it, and that its system was not hacked.
“It was a mistake made during a standard procedure at the changeover of a shift, and an employee pushed the wrong button,” Gov. David Ige said.
Although critics gushed over the politically correct, The Last Jedi, the most recent addition to the Star Wars saga, fact is, most real fans, who have devoted their entire lives to support the force, departed the theater thinking “what the hell did I just watch?”
The desparage between fans’ loathing of this installment of the blockbuster franchise and the near-universal acclaim rained down by critics, has prompted a revolt among fans perhaps most evident in a new petition aimed getting producers to admit The Last Jedi is the “worst Star Wars film – ever.”
According to CBR.com, there are some who are so vehemently against the film that even removing it from canon isn’t enough — instead, they want writer/director Rian Johnson to publicly admit that Last Jedi is “awful.”
He’s known as,”everyone’s friend,” 16-year-old Ryan Joseph, a College Park High Falcon sophomore who became paralyzed from the neck down during a school wrestling match.
Joseph’s friends and family, who describe him as “charming” while possessing an “exceptional wit,” started a GoFundMe page to help with the teen’s mounting medical costs.
“Joseph, son of Kristin and Tom Joseph, suffered a life changing spinal cord injury in a wrestling meet on Wednesday, January 10, 2018. Currently Ryan is paralyzed from the neck down and unable to breathe on his own. Hopes and prayers are for Ryan to have a speedy recovery and one day regain mobility for independent living. Ryan is being well-treated at the John Muir Trauma ICU in Walnut Creek. Unfortunately, he is unable to receive visitors at this time, but cards are welcome. Continue reading
Ed Sheeran just got hit with another lawsuit claiming he ripped off “The Rest of Our Life,” a song he wrote for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.
The new suit against the 26-year-old superstar, filed by members of Jasmine Rae, caused showbiz411 to ask the question, “So why why why does he [Sheeran] have such a bad problem with plagiarism?”
“‘The Rest of Our Life,’ sounds so much like Jasmine Rae’s 2014 hit “When I Found You” that its Australian writers, Sean Carey and Beau Golden, have filed suit against Sheeran, et al. And yes, the songs are very much alike,” lamented showbiz411. Continue reading
