The young couple set out on a trip in 1987, speeding toward Seattle, Washington, in a gold van, when they crossed paths with a killer. The man raped Tanya Van Cuylenborg and shot her in the head. Jay Cook was beaten and strangled. The killer left a pair of plastic gloves inside their vehicle, a gesture one detective interpreted as a taunt: You'll never catch me. That was true for more than three decades. Investigators spent thousands of hours sifting leads and probing suspects with little to show. But in late April, a former musical theater actor with no background in law enforcement took over the case. CeCe Moore and her team cracked it in three days. Moore put the killer's DNA profile into a public genealogy website to find relatives and then built a family tree that led to a suspect, William Earl Talbott II. The truck driver was charged in Washington state in May. Since the same technique was used to find the suspected Golden State Killer in April, genetic genealogy has led to a … [Read more...] about The unlikely crime-fighter cracking decades-old murders?

People hoping to be parents in the UK are being sold “false hope” by foreign IVF clinics claiming success rates as high as 98 per cent based on highly selective data, the national fertility regulator has warned. These clinics are exhibiting at UK events for couples considering fertility treatment and making claims that no UK IVF provider would be allowed to make, said Sally Cheshire, chair of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA). The regulator said it was powerless to regulate overseas clinics, while fertility experts said some clinics are capitalising on the hopes of vulnerable people and could be dangerous if they led with these inflated claims of success. HFEA data on UK clinics in 2016 shows that for women under the age of 35 – who have the best odds of getting pregnant through IVF – on average each round of embryo implantation has just a 32.5 per cent chance. But one Cyprus clinic, part of the international fertility group Bahceci, … [Read more...] about Vulnerable would-be parents being sold ‘false hope’ by overseas IVF clinics, regulator warns

Thirteen at Columbine. Twenty-six at Sandy Hook. Seventeen at Marjory Stoneman Douglas. Over the past two decades, a handful of massacres that have come to define school shootings in this country are almost always remembered for the students and educators slain. Death tolls are repeated so often that the numbers and places become permanently linked. What those figures fail to capture, though, is the collateral damage of this uniquely American crisis. Beginning with Columbine in 1999, more than 187,000 students attending at least 193 primary or secondary schools have experienced a shooting on campus during school hours, according to a year-long Washington Post analysis. This means that the number of children who have been shaken by gunfire in the places they go to learn exceeds the population of Eugene, Oregon, or Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
