Over the weekend, rumors surfaced that the brother of Cecil, the African lion whose killing sparked international outrage last week after he was lured out of a protected reserve and killed by an American hunter, had also been killed … by another American hunter. It turns out, not only that Jericho was part of Cecil’s “coalition” or study group partner and not a blood sibling, but that Jericho was, in fact, very much alive. Meanwhile officials in Zimbabwe, who are already seeking the extradition of Dr. Walter Palmer, are accusing a second American hunter … Dr. Jan C. Seski, a dentist from Pennsylvania … of poaching.

Police in Pennsylvania are searching for a jail inmate suspected of killing a woman after walking away from a work-release program in the western part of the state. Robert Crissman, 38, ran from the jail about 6:30 a.m. Thursday while delivering meals to other inmates. Crissman was in prison on a drug charge probation violation, and was not considered violent. Not anymore. In a news conference Thursday night, the DA said he left the jail and went right to the home on 110 Rayburn Road. A man in the house then left for work, but came home later and found the body of his girlfriend, 55-year-old Tammy Long. The cause of death remains under investigation. The DA added that the couple did not know that Mr. Crissman was an escaped prisoner, but knew him as an acquaintance.

For some it will be hold your own, and show that you are presidential material. For others, it will be to break out of the logjam at the bottom, and get more in play as a credible threat. Shushannah takes a look at who has the most riding on this first debate, and what strategies they will likely employ to get what they need out of this major national exposure.

Science has picked up the ball that common courtesy could not hold onto. Faced with increasing numbers of dog owners who did not properly pick up after their dogs, a community group voted to have all neighborhood dogs submit their DNA, so when some of their business was left behind, it could be tested, and the culprit scientifically identified, and we should add, fined $250. While some at first worried that they could be framed by enemies who might poach the poop from the wastebasket, the program has apparently worked very effectively, and may be a model for other neighborhoods facing similar problems.

The former University of Cincinnati police officer indicted in the shooting death of an unarmed black man during a traffic stop was in a Hamilton County court briefly on Thursday. Ray Tensing entered a plea of not guilty to a charge of murder. Tensing has said he was justified in shooting and killing Samuel Dubose, an unarmed black motorist, after a traffic stop. A video shown by the prosecutor played a big part in his indictment, but Tensing’s defense attorney says a second body camera shows the officer on the ground at one point during the encounter, and being dragged by DuBose’s vehicle. Tensing was released after posting bail, described as being in a state of shock.
