    • Black-eyed mugshot of Lancaster County suspect gets national attention, disbelief

      A police mug shot taken in Lancaster County, S.C., is drawing attention across the country for what appears to be a blond woman with black eyes. The mug shot is of 24-year-old Morgan Joyce Varn, who faces charges of kidnapping, armed robbery and property damage in Lancaster County. She remained in the Lancaster County jail Friday without bond. It is the kind of case that typically doesn’t get attention beyond county lines, but the story was being picked up across the nation Friday due to Varn’s striking image: Full head of blond hair, pale forehead covered in tattoos, and the whites of her eyes appearing to be black and reflective like glass.

      Anthony Joshua stopped Wladimir Klitschko in round 11 of one of the best heavyweight fights in ages in front of a record crowd of 90,000 at Wembley Stadium. IBF world champion Joshua looked to have the edge in the first four rounds before scoring a knockdown in the fifth which brought the entire stadium to its feet. Klitschko actually finished the round strong enough to potentially cancel out the 10-8 score a knockdown usually brings, before dropping the champ himself in the sixth – the first time Joshua had been put on the canvas.

A Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduate died Wednesday when he fell to his death on campus, as he tried to climb the Great Dome — a time-honored tradition of one-upsmanship at the prestigious Cambridge university, authorities said. Computer programmer Nicholas Paggi — a 2015 MIT grad and a Bayville, New Jersey native — was with roommates who are MIT graduate students when he fell. “He came down the side of one of the roofs, came across the front and slipped going back up the other side,” his mother, Helga Paggi, told CBS in Boston from her home in Toms River, New Jersey.
