Peggy did so and Anna allegedly shot her mother in the head. She then texted a photo of her mother’s dead body to her friend, 15-year-old Rachel Helm, who came to the house to help clean the crime scene.

Taking a break from cleaning, the two girls decided to get a bite to eat at a nearby Subway. At that point, Anna learned that her father, Daryl Schroeder, was coming to town and she vomited on the restaurant floor, reported SaukValley.com. The pair then went to get more

UVU opens crime scene investigation house | fox13now.com

OREM, Utah — Forensic science students at Utah Valley University have a new place to conduct mock investigations and record their findings.

A crime scene investigation house opened Friday at 1138 S 400 W in Orem, near the university’s main campus.

According to the university, the house replicates a standard residence in most ways, but the garage has been converted to an office space where instructors can monitor their students via cameras set up in each room of the house.

“The instructor doesn’t have to be there right on top of the students,” said Amie Houghton, assistant professor of forensic science at UVU, in a statement sent to FOX 13. “They can watch and even see if something is in someone’s hands.”

Both the interior and exterior of the house have been set up to replicate different types of crime scenes. Students will use the space to learn how to discover and

The Civil War Brewing in the White House Press Room

Floaters are shadows cast on your retina — unless you’re a White House correspondent. In that case, “floaters” are a discomforting sign of Trump-era media changes right in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room.

As a New Yorker piece underscores, journalist floaters are reporters (or pseudo-reporters) who have White House credentials but are not assigned a permanent seat by the White House Correspondents’ Association. If a seat is free at the start of a briefing, first come, first serve.

Writer Andrew Marantz, reporting as if a foreign correspondent in a strange land of befuddling mores, captures how “until recently, the more established White House correspondents have regarded floaters as a harmless distraction — the equivalent of letting a batboy sit in the dugout. Now they are starting to see the floaters as an existential threat. ‘It’s becoming a form of court-packing,’ one White House correspondent told me.”

The premise is that
