(Click here if you are having trouble viewing the video on your mobile device.) DEAR CAROLYN: I was recently diagnosed with a significant health problem. I’m not one to share personal issues like that. I, of course, shared this with my husband but told him under no uncertain terms, emphatically and repeatedly, that he was not to tell anyone. He told. He told his daughters, his colleague, a couple of his friends. When I found out he’d betrayed a confidence, I told him how very angry I am, how very hurt I am, and how very disappointed in him I am. He made excuses … “They needed to know why you didn’t attend a funeral.” “He needed to know why I couldn’t attend a meeting.” I’m having a really difficult
A 22-year-old woman was mauled to death by her pet pit bulls in an “absolutely grisly” attack during a walk in the Virginia woods, authorities said - but her distraught pals say the pooches would never hurt their owner, and suspect foul play. Bethany Lynn Stephens’s father, John, went out searching for his daughter when he hadn’t seen her for two days and found her two dogs “guarding” her lifeless body on Thursday night, local Sheriff James Agnew told WTVR. “The victim had defensive wounds on her hands and arms trying to keep the dogs away from her, which would be consistent with being attacked while she was still alive,” Agnew said of the medical examiner’s initial report. The dogs, named Pac-Man and Tonka, are believed to each weigh as much as their 5-foot-1, 125-pound owner.
One person was killed and another seriously injured after a race between motorcyclists ended in a multi-vehicle crash on Saturday afternoon, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The crash happened in West Miami-Dade as the two bikers were racing east on Southwest Eighth Street at about 1:45 p.m. The two racers crashed into each other just past Southwest 122nd Avenue and then into two cars. They were both thrown from their motorcycles when they hit the other vehicles. One cyclist died on the road and the other rider’s arm was ripped from his body. The injured rider was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, according to FHP spokesman Joe Sanchez. Sanchez said the agency is waiting to notify family
On the anniversary of the death of former North Korea leader Kim Jong-Il, the secretive state has released footage of thousands of mourners bowing and laying flowers at the feet of statues of Jong-Il-who died on December 17, 2011-and national founder Kim Il Sung. The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), a Washington-based think tank, predicted last month that the day of national mourning could be marked with a test.
Canadian billionaire Barry Sherman may have killed his wife, and then himself in their lavish Toronto home, according to reports on Saturday. The bodies of Sherman, 75, and his wife, Honey, were found hanging side-by-side on the railings surrounding the indoor lap pool in the basement of their mansion on Friday morning, a day after he failed to show up for work at the generic pharmaceutical company that made him rich, according to the Toronto Sun, which cited unnamed sources. Honey Sherman may have been killed in another part of the house and moved to the spot she was found next to her husband, the outlet reported. Toronto cops are treating the deaths as “suspicious,” but said there were no signs
Yinshan Wong had no apparent reason to head to the American River Canyon in Auburn, California, a town her family said she’d never visited before. But on Dec. 3, that’s where Wong, a 33-year-old Sacramento mother of three young children, was driving at 3 a.m. She steered her white sedan off a narrow dirt road and drove down a steep hill between a cluster of houses at the edge of the canyon. She got out of the car, took her purse, containing her cellphone and keys, and set it on the ground. Wearing a knee-high skirt and a thin, short-sleeved blouse, she stepped over a small ditch filled with running water and walked into the dense poison oak and blackberry bushes. She left her flimsy ballet-style
