Genetic sleuthing again IDs a murder suspect in a cold case

quote [ The arrest of a second murder suspect with the help of genetic genealogy raises worries that suspicionless searches may be next.

On May 17, detectives in Washington arrested 55-year-old William Earl Talbott II of Seatac for the 1987 double murder of Jay Cook and Tanya Van Cuylenborg. A new DNA sleuthing technique called genetic genealogy led to Talbott?s capture. His arrest came just weeks after police in California used the new trick to identify a suspect in the Golden State Killer case ]

This is out of the box, now. Worries about misuse, making suspects of innocent people, etc are about five years too late.

Judge orders teen charged for starting Eagle Creek Fire to pay $36.6M in restitution

quote [ HOOD RIVER, Ore. ? A Hood River County Circuit Court judge ordered the teen responsible for starting the Eagle Creek Fire to pay more than $36.6 million in restitution to cover the damage caused by the fire. ]

I get the reasoning behind it, and I don't necessarily disagree, but at some point it feels like execution would be a more humane punishment.

Delaware becomes first state to ban child marriage

quote [ Delaware has become the first state to ban child marriage. Gov. John Carney (D) signed the measure into law on Wednesday, setting the minimum age for marriage in the state at 18, WDEL reported.

The law went into effect immediately. Under past law, minors in the state could be married at any age with the approval of a judge. ]

Full in extended. My apologies for forgetting to do the full in extended on my last posting and slamming everyone headfirst into a WSJ paywall. As they say - to err is human, to point it out with glee is the internet.
