Who, Why?

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Deadly Aftermath

Who did it and why? Those are two main questions facing federal authorities less than 24 hours after the deadly Boston Marathon bombings. Officials say three people died, including a child, while another 140 people were injured. As many as two unexploded bombs were found near the end of the course. The Pakistani Taliban have denied any role.

Local Runners

Many marathoners from the Tri-state were in Boston and witnessed the bombings.  We'll hear from some who will share their ordeal on Sunrise.

Stay Alert

There is a slight chance for severe thunderstorms later today. Byron says a strong system will push the cold front through the area later on Wednesday, leading to widespread showers and thunderstorms on Thursday.  Torrential rainfall on the order of 1 to 3+ inches is likely by the end of the week.

Espionage Sentencing

An Alaska-based military policeman will serve 16 years in prison and will be dishonorably discharged for selling military secrets to a Russian agent, who was an undercover FBI agent. Spec. William Colton Millay of Owensboro, Ky., was sentenced Monday.

Coffee With a Cop

Nicole will be live at another Coffee With a Cop event hosted by the Evansville Police Department and also have details on an east side shooting.

Memorial Scholarships

It's the last day for Apollo High School seniors to apply for a scholarship that honors a former student who died while serving his country.  Alyssa is live in Owensboro with the details.

So enjoy your Tuesday, and we'll see you on Sunrise.
