      On Martaevious Santiago’s 17th birthday, he shot his 13-year-old sister in the back of the head. She had just hugged him in the kitchen of the family’s Florida City home, police said. As they separated and Tedra King walked away, Martaevious pointed a loaded semiautomatic handgun at her. Then he pulled the trigger and killed her. Martaevious told police it was an accident. The shooting happened Tuesday night inside a modest Florida City subdivision called Washington Park. Outside the home on Wednesday, shocked family members — some on the way to identify the young girl’s body at the morgue — demanded privacy. “Everybody that knows a word of prayer, please pray for the Bess family,” close family

    • Even Donald Trump's birthday tweet to Melania has a factual error it in

      Our Tweeter in Chief Donald Trump, is known for playing fast and loose with facts, but you'd think a birthday message to his wife would be a nice softball. He can garner a few awws and then move on.  Nope. SEE ALSO: The only Melania in the White House is this photograph On Wednesday, Melania Trump celebrated her birthday. And like most loved ones do on their spouse's birthday, Donald Trump took to Twitter to send his best wishes to his wife. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our @FLOTUS, Melania! https://t.co/rYYp51mxDQ pic.twitter.com/np7KYHglSv — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 26, 2017 However, when it came to the graphics, there was a ball drop. Or a star drop, if you will. If you look closely you'll notice that the flag in that graphics package only has 39 stars, which leaves out quite a number of states.  And because nothing escapes the internet, Twitter definitely noticed. There are only 39 stars on that flag, sir. https://t.co/KATgoLIQUv — Dan Zak (@MrDanZak) April 27, 2017 This is so weird: The American flag on @FLOTUS Melania Trump's birthday card only has 39 stars. H/t: @eventsforgood pic.twitter.com/IYd2hdOXGJ — Christina Wilkie (@christinawilkie) April 27, 2017 Very weird. Since the 39 star flag was never official since we went from 38 to 42 states in 1890. https://t.co/TG5JWAPOA3 — MyNinjaTurtle (@MyNinjaTurtle) April 27, 2017 @chrislhayes Wonder which 11 states are slated for destruction? #39StarFlag pic.twitter.com/KKkIS1ElZB — kathy greenstone (@KathyGreenstone) April 27, 2017 To make matters even more worse, this is not the first time Donald Trump has shared the 39-star flag. As MSNBC's Chris Hayes pointed out, Donald Trump also shared the flag at the end of the video welcoming freed Egyptian American Aya Hijazi who was imprisoned in Cairo. @christinawilkie @FLOTUS @eventsforgood IT'S THE SAME FLAG IN THE END OF THIS VIDEO!!!! https://t.co/jZOSS7VjNh — Christopher Hayes (@chrislhayes) April 27, 2017 Someone in the WH graphics operation has a 39-star flag saved on their computer as the current flag and is using it everything! — Christopher Hayes (@chrislhayes) April 27, 2017 For reference, Mr. President, we've never actually had a 39-star flag in the history of the United States.  The design was actually created in 1889 when flag makers were anticipating the addition of the Dakotas to the United states. Flag makers incorrectly assumed that what we know as North Dakota and South Dakota would be admitted to the US as only one state, not two. The New York Times notes:  Long story short, flag makers jumped the gun, so now 39-star flag was never an official flag. They are now just collectors items. Note: there was never an official 39-star flag, but some folks thought there would be 39 states in 1889, so some flags were actually created — Brian Ruh (@brianruh) September 5, 2016 WE NEVER EVEN HAD A 39 STAR FLAG https://t.co/XpMS0LMd97 — SheriffFruitfly (@sherifffruitfly) April 27, 2017 Now, to be fair, this is probably just a graphic design mistake from the White House art department, not a comment on how many states Trump wishes we had. But the fact stands: The. President. Of. The. United. States. Tweeted. A. Fake. Flag. Happy Birthday, Melania!

    • Pro golfer immediately regrets creepy tweet to high schooler

      Grayson Murray’s open book policy on social media took a decidedly creepy turn Wednesday night. The 23-year-old golfer and part-time model chaser, after admitting he “had a couple drinks,” fired off an inappropriate tweet to a young female fan after she posed the age-old question, “Why does everyone hate on @GraysonMurray?” “Idk but I hate the fact you are in high school. You are pretty,” Murray replied in the since-deleted tweet, which had been captured. The fan in question, a Dallas-based high schooler who had recently shared photos from her prom, responded to Murray’s remarks with, “Well thanks!” Murray returned to Twitter on Thursday morning, switching the subject matter from personal to

      It’s been 20 years since the grisly murder of six-year-old JonBenét Ramsey captivated the nation, and although no one has ever been charged in her death, speculation once again fell on her brother Burke when he sat down for an interview with Dr. Phil last September. Although the 30-year-old swore he didn’t kill his little sister, viewers were disturbed by his odd behavior, which included a lot of smiling — something that may stem from being socially uncomfortable, Dr. Phil noted. "He works remotely as a computer analyst,” the TV host said at the time. “He doesn’t go into the office. He's not around people a lot. He's very intelligent.” Scroll down for more details about Burke’s involvement in
