Decades after a serial rapist and murderer terrorized California, police arrested a suspect in the case who they believe could be the man known as the “Golden State Killer.” According to the New York Times, detectives got this major break in the case through 2017’s hottest holiday present: at-home DNA testing kits.
In a disturbing new Washington Post report, current and former NBC News employees say that the network has repeatedly failed to address its major sexual-misconduct problem, and two women bring new allegations against veteran anchor Tom Brokaw.
When it comes to cell phones, I’m a firm believer that you only need one (1), as that piece of technology can presumably be used make and receive outgoing calls, send texts, maybe surf the web, download some apps, and do other cell-phone-type things. But President Donald Trump’s embattled personal attorney Michael Cohen apparently has … more than a dozen cell phones. What?
“One day soon, you’ll hear a car pull up to your curb, an engine cut out. You’ll hear footsteps coming up your front walk,” Michelle McNamara wrote in a letter to the Golden State Killer in the final pages of her posthumously published best-selling book, I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, about her obsessive pursuit of the notorious, elusive serial rapist and killer. “This is how it ends for you … Open the door. Show us your face.”

Sometimes you have to call a spade a spade, but it’s a word that’s not always quite right,” she told the Cut.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my Instagram feed in an elevator when I swiped down and went back up again — the social-media equivalent of a double-take. The reason was this arrestingly beautiful behind-the-scenes shot from a photo shoot posted by makeup artist Roy Liu. In it, a model (Allyson Chalmers) poses for the camera, a light breeze ruffling her wavy hair. Light red eye shadow defines her eyes, her skin clean but slightly dewy, and I was mesmerized by her perfect-looking red mouth.
On Thursday, a jury found comedian Bill Cosby guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault against Andrea Constand, a former employee of Temple University women’s basketball team, who claims Cosby drugged her and sexually assaulted her when she visited his home in 2004.
