'Tummy Tuck Four': Americans Kidnapped, Murdered, En Route to Tuck
Five friends set out from South Carolina to Mexico. Latavia "Tay" McGee, a mom of 6, wanted a tummy tuck.
The surgical procedure to remove abdominal fat was scheduled with a doctor in Matamoros, just across the US/Mexico border. One of the friends stayed behind in a Brownsville, Texas hotel room. The woman didn’t have the proper documentation to cross the border.
The four Americans traveled to Matamoros from Brownsville in a rented white minivan. Shortly after they crossed the border, the minivan was fired at. Reportedly, rival drug cartels mistook the friends for Haitian drug smugglers.
Two of the friends died in the attack. The other two were held captive for days in a remote region of the Gulf coast.

28:19For many years the debate has raged, is the Shroud of Turin really the burial cloth of Christ or is it a hoax? Nancy Grace sits down with dear friend and author, Guy Powell, to discuss his new book "The Only Witness: A History of the Shroud of Turin." The book is historical fiction, a depiction of how the Shroud made its way to its current resting place in the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Turin, Italy. Powell gives a brief overview of the testing and research done on this treasured Christian relic to determine its authenticity and lets us inside his motivation behind writing the compelling historical fiction.

Slay Suspect Bryan Kohberger Spies on Female Colleague Thru Digicam?
37:19Today’s arraignment for Bryan Kohberger will be the first time the accused killer has been in court since his initial appearance after his arrest. Kohberger was indicted last week as a grand jury found there was sufficient evidence to move forward with formal charges. That evidence will not be revealed at this hearing. Kohberger will be required to enter a plea on the 5 charges against him, four counts of first-degree murder and one count of burglary. During the arraignment, the judge will reiterate Kohberger’s rights and read the charges against him, asking for a plea on each charge. In Idaho, there are only two pleas, guilty or not guilty, and a date for trial will be set. If Kohberger refuses to enter a plea or fails to appear, the court will enter a not-guilty plea on his behalf. Kohberger’s attorney has repeatedly said his client looks forward to clearing his name. New information has been uncovered in the days before the arraignment. Bryan Kohberger was involved in another crime that happened before the student murders. This incident reportedly involved a female co-worker at Washington State University, according to a Dateline Report. Someone allegedly broke into the woman's apartment and moved things around. Instead of calling police, the co-worker called Kohberger, who suggested and helped her, install security cameras. The report says Kohberger was behind that break-in and used those cameras to spy on her.
