Bethany Stephens’ father went looking for his daughter after he hadn’t seen her in over a day. So he decided to seek her out in a wooded area in Goochland, Virginia, where the 22-year-old often took her two pit bulls out for a stroll, according to Richmond.com. That’s when he said he found the two dogs “guarding” the body of his daughter, who police say was mauled and killed by the pets. He called 911 on Thursday night, and officers arrived just over an hour later, WTVR reported. It was a scene that Sheriff Jim Agnew said he likely won’t forget. “It was an absolutely grisly mauling,” he said, according to WTVR. “In my 40 years of law enforcement I've never seen anything quite like it. I hope
A former “Today” staffer has come forward to describe what she called a consensual affair with then-host Matt Lauer in 2000.
The top American and Russian fighter jets this week had their first run-in in the skies above Syria, and the incident favored the Russian jet if combat were to break out. The US's F-22 doesn't visibly store weapons, and it relies on stealth, so coming face to face with an advanced Russian fighter puts it at a disadvantage. Two US F-22 stealth fighter jets intercepted Russian Su-25 and Su-35 jets that crossed into the US's area of operation over Syria on Wednesday, and it highlights a downside to the US's top fighter jets. While the F-35 has been built as a flying quarterback that can dogfight, bomb ground targets, gather intelligence, or conduct surveillance, the F-22 specializes in one thing: air-to-air combat.

A Canadian man says he’s broke after the United Parcel Service lost track of his inheritance. The intended $846,000 delivery was a bank draft from TD Canada Trust, which still hasn’t refunded the lost fortune 10 months later. “It was a total surprise,” Lorette Taylor told CBC News.
NEWTOWN, Conn. - I was halfway to Vermont when the calls and texts started coming. I was off that day, driving up from my home in Connecticut to see some college friends. My editors wanted to know how far away I was from Sandy Hook, because there had been a school shooting. I had never heard of Sandy Hook, but soon learned it was in Newtown, which was just about 20 minutes up the road from where I live. I was already two hours into my drive north. They weren’t sure how bad it was yet. But soon we all did. I arrived in Newtown in the late afternoon on Dec. 14, 2012, and spent that day and the next dozen or so reporting from a community shell-shocked from the massacre that took the lives of 20 children and six adults at the elementary school behind the firehouse. The images here are just some of the hundreds I took with my phone while I was there, shuffling from press briefing to press briefing, makeshift memorial to makeshift memorial, funeral to funeral. Gut punch to gut punch. The therapy dogs were everywhere . When schools reopened , children arriving on buses waved to the hundreds of reporters, television trucks and camera crews that had descended on Newtown. After the first week following the killings, the crush of media mostly faded - at the request of the families. “Newtown was a private, quiet place before the shooting,” Sen. Chris Murphy, one of the first lawmakers to arrive at the firehouse that day, recently told me. “And it still is. Newtown is not a place you move to if you want to be showy, if you want to lead a big public life. And so Newtown’s recovery has been private and quiet as well.” A few years after the shootings, a woman who came across a photo gallery I had posted online sent me an email asking if she could use some of the images for a Powerpoint presentation she was doing about school safety. It was the mother of Josephine Gay, one the children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. “Hard to say what it meant to stumble upon your photos,” Michelle Gay wrote. “There were so many that were taken of us in horrible moments - but yours capture the dignity and beauty of our community and the initial outpouring of love and support.” Read more from Yahoo News: School shooting survivors united by a chain of grief - and lessons How lessons from Sandy Hook saved lives in California shooting Jonesboro survivors - and the shooters - recall moment of horror Sandy Hook mom and dad speak out in rare interview Newtown parents release PSA about response to shootings _____ See more news-related photo galleries and follow us on Yahoo News Photo Twitter and Tumblr .
"This shouldn't have happened," Rae Ann Gruver said in an exclusive interview with ABC News' Amy Robach three months after her son, Max Gruver, 18, died following a night of drinking and alleged hazing at the Phi Delta Theta fraternity's LSU chapter. On the night of September 13, Max Gruver and other fraternity pledges participated in a game dubbed "Bible Study," where pledges were asked questions about the fraternity and ordered to drink alcohol if they answered questions incorrectly, according to an affidavit filed by LSU police in October.

Income tax brackets will change in 2018 if President Donald Trump enacts the GOP tax legislation. The Republican tax plan proposes keeping seven tax brackets, but it changes the income ranges. The final bill proposes eliminating the personal exemption and increasing the standard deduction. Republican leaders appear to have enough votes needed to pass their final tax bill. The bill, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, was finalized this week by a conference committee made up mostly of members of the House and Senate committees that wrote the versions that those chambers passed. Republican leaders have said they plan to hold a vote on the compromise bill early next week, with a goal of President Donald

The former assistant high school soccer coach who allegedly ran off with a Florida teen was hit with a charge of sexual activity with a minor Friday, according to ABC News affiliate WJXT. Rian Rodriguez, 27, who made his first appearance before a judge via closed circuit video in Columbia County criminal court, already was facing the felony charge of interfering with custody of a child for allegedly taking 17-year-old Caitlyn Frisina from home for a week without her parents’ permission.

In their biggest move during free agency this past summer, the Los Angeles Lakers doled out $18 million to sign Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who’d spent the previous four seasons with the Detroit Pistons after being selected by the team eighth overall in the 2013 NBA Draft. While Caldwell-Pope received a lucrative salary, the salary-cap-minded Lakers took advantage of what had been a slow market for the shooting guard and inked him to a one-year contract. Caldwell-Pope was added with the notion of providing some experience to a roster laced with rookies. In addition, he’s emerged as one of the team’s steady shooters, an area the Lakers have otherwise been deficient in. But as they concluded a four-game
