In June 2016, a 3-year-old girl was found wandering alone in a parking lot in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, near a car that was splattered with blood. The girl's mother, who police would later learn was Lyntell Washington, a beloved teacher, was missing. What the girl revealed would lead investigators to uncover events -- including a secret love affair -- surrounding the murder of Washington, who was pregnant when she was killed.

Jury selection begins Thursday in a Manhattan federal court in actor Anthony Rapp’s civil lawsuit against Kevin Spacey alleging sexual misconduct. Rapp is suing Spacey for $40 million over an alleged encounter at Spacey’s Manhattan home in 1986, when Rapp was 14, in which he alleged Spacey picked him up, grabbed his buttocks and laid down on top of him. Rapp’s allegations, initially made in a Buzzfeed article in 2017, were the first of several against Spacey, but the trial is the first time Spacey will defend himself in front of a jury.
While Iran's brutal attempts to put down nationwide protests -- sparked by the death of a young woman in the custody of its so-called morality police -- have done little to stop domestic dissent, the crackdown has dire implications for the regime on the international stage, cementing Iran's pariah status. Following Iranian security forces siege of an elite university in Tehran where students were demonstrating, President Joe Biden this week promised his administration would soon impose "further costs on perpetrators of violence against peaceful protestors." Meanwhile, the top levels of leadership within Iran have sought to blame outside influences for fueling the nearly three straight weeks of unrest.

Students at more than 60 high schools and universities across at least 29 states are holding student strikes and events on Thursday to fight for reproductive justice. The self-dubbed "Day of Student Action" is organized by the Graduate Student Action Network, a group formed in response to the U.S. Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade ending federal protections for abortion rights, and the Young Democratic Socialists of America. Students plan to demand that their school step in and defend their reproductive rights and freedom of gender expression in the absence of action from elected leaders, CalTech graduate student and founder of GSAN, Rachael Kuintzle told ABC News in an interview.
As Hurricane Ian pounded the West Coast of Florida, Tiffani Henning watched the Category 4 storm from the third floor of Golisano Children’s Hospital in Fort Myers. Henning huddled with about two dozen other moms last week as they watched their cars float away from the hospital's parking garage, boats floats down what were once roads in front of the hospital and trees sway sideways and completely uproot from the ground. Behind them through it all laid their newborn children, some of them critically ill, in the hospital's neo-natal intensive care unit, or NICU.
With two main ingredients -- pumpkin pie mix and boxed cake mix -- this simple, seasonal dessert can be whipped up in no time. Food blogger Karen Gifford first used baking as a source of refuge for anxiety and translated her love of cooking for family and storytelling to start her site and social channels as The Food Charlatan. "I started my blog in the fall over a decade ago, and unashamedly posted about 14 pumpkin recipes in a row," Gifford told "Good Morning America," adding that it's "still going strong with the apple and pumpkin every fall."
Sexual violence survivors may often face overwhelming medical bills when seeking emergency care, a factor that could discourage many people from seeking treatment, experts say. Survivors of sexual violence are charged nearly $4,000 in medical bills, on average, after seeking emergency care following an assault, according to a recent study published in The New England Journal of Medicine. Only one in five victims of sexual violence seek medical care in the United States.

ABC News has confirmed that a former Texas state trooper now under investigation for her conduct in responding to the May 24 Uvalde school shooting rampage is among the new officers hired for the Uvalde school district police department -- the same force that has come under fire for the bungled response to the massacre. CNN reported Wednesday night that the former trooper is Crimson Elizondo, the first member of the Texas Department of Public Safety to enter the hallway at Robb Elementary School after the shooter gained entry. A law enforcement official briefed on the investigation confirmed CNN's report.
A federal appeals court on Wednesday ruled that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program -- which shields hundreds of thousands of young adult migrants from deportation and permits them to work in the U.S. -- is unlawful. Under the current set of decisions, and with the case now sent back to the district court, DACA can accept no new applications but recipients will be allowed to renew their applications. A three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit agreed with a U.S. district court judge that DACA was illegal but did not move to immediately revoke the program, which has been the subject of near-constant legal battles and political lobbying since the Obama-era Department of Homeland Security outlined it via memo in 2012.

During a press conference on Tuesday with Detroit Police Chief James White, snippets of body camera footage were shown of events leading up to the fatal shooting that occurred Sunday.

An attorney representing the family of a Los Angeles police officer who died after a training exercise in May alleged Wednesday that the officer was targeted and killed after filing a report accusing fellow officers of sexually assaulting a woman. Bicycle officer Houston Tipping, 32, suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury after he and another officer fell to the ground during a simulation, according to a report released Tuesday by Los Angeles Police Department's Office of Constitutional Policing and Policy, which called his death a "tragic accident." "The impact on the ground with the arm of the officer in that position around the backside of Officer Tipping's neck...in that instance is where the fracture occurred," LAPD Chief Michel Moore previously said.
Eleven relatives of the victims and survivors of the Uvalde, Texas, shooting spoke out on Wednesday in support of Democratic candidates for local office -- saying the elementary school massacre had moved them to activism. At a news conference, those 11 as well as two pastors and one of the shooting survivors joined lawmakers and candidates in urging people to vote for Democrats and support stricter gun laws. "It has taken me some time to step out and be Tess' voice," said Veronica Mata, whose 10-year-old daughter was killed at Robb Elementary School in May. "Not because I was scared or because I didn't know what to say, but because the life I once had was ripped apart."
Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones declined to take the stand in his own defense Wednesday in the Infowars host's second defamation trial over his Sandy Hook comments, as jurors are slated to begin deliberating the damages this week. Standing outside the Connecticut courthouse on Tuesday, Jones called the trial a "fraud" and told reporters he was likely not going to testify again because he could be held in contempt if he says he is "innocent." Pattis did not call any witnesses for the defense, which is aiming to limit the amount of damages Jones must pay for calling the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School a hoax.
