Police gathered Tuesday outside the Indiana home of Subway pitchman Jared Fogle. The FBI said it was investigating in the area where Jared Fogle lives. Their arrival comes two months after the director of Fogle’s foundation was arrested on federal child porn charges. Russell Taylor was charged with eight child porn counts. Fogle was not implicated. At the time he cut ties with Taylor and said he was shocked by the charges. An FBI spokeswoman morning confirmed that the agency was conducting a criminal investigation in the area, but she would not comment on the nature of the probe.

Have you suffered the sting of being unfriended on Facebook? After you recover from the inevitable heartbreak, you may be curious if there is anyone else on your list who has unfriended you. In an age when the average friend list runs in the hundreds, this can be a daunting task. Now, a third-party app called “Who Deleted Me on Facebook” promises to keep track of your friend list and notify you when a connection deactivates their account or unfriends you. What you do to them after you get that information is up to you.

The release of 2005 documents reveals that Bill Cosby testified he got Quaaludes in order to drug women he wanted to have sex with – ultimately admitting he had given them to at least one woman. Testifying under oath that he had given the woman multiple Benadryl pills, the comedian settled the sexual-abuse lawsuit back in 2006. Since then, Cosby had been accused of sexual misconduct by more than 30 women – many claiming that he used sedatives. What does this mean for the 77-year-old? We’ll get the details from the shocking document

A proposal to take the Confederate battle flag down from the grounds of the South Carolina State Capitol passed a procedural vote in the State Senate Monday. The body will return for a third and final vote on Tuesday before sending the proposal on to the South Carolina House of Representatives. Last month’s murders of nine people in a black church in Charleston prompted the filing of the bill. Opponents of the plan told their colleagues that the memory of ancestors who fought and died for the Confederacy would be dishonored by taking down the flag and offered amendments intended to keep the banner in place in some form. ABC’s Jim Ryan has the latest from Columbia.

Nine days into marathon nuclear talks, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday said the diplomatic efforts “could go either way,” cutting off all potential pathways for an Iranian atomic bomb or ending without an agreement that American officials have sometimes described as the most likely alternative to war. World powers and Iran are hoping to clinch a deal by Tuesday, setting a decade of restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program and granting Iran significant relief from international sanctions. Also offered by Iran to leverage negotiations, their assistance in the battle against ISIS.

The South Carolina State Senate on Monday begins debating the fate of the Confederate flag that flies on the lawn of the State Capitol. In the wake of the murders of nine members of a historic, black church in Charleston last month and the discovery of photographs that featured suspect Dylann Roof holding a Confederate flag, Gov. Nikki Haley told lawmakers that “it’s time for the flag to come down.” Two-thirds of the State Assembly must agree to the move. ABC’s Jim Ryan reports from the South Carolina capital.

The Greek people have spoken, and they have said “no” to the additional austerity spending measures that those holding that country’s debt have insisted occur if Greece were to continue getting the monetary financing they need to keep running. So now the question is what new measures their European colleagues will take following this rebuff, and whether they will include kicking Greece out of the European Union, and indeed let that country go into the tank.
