Police: Dad buried children in 2 states
MOBILE | A father whose missing children are thought to be dead told investigators he buried one of his young children in Mississippi in March, then buried the other in Alabama in June, police said.
The father, John DeBlase, 27, was being held Monday on $206,000 bond. He is charged with child abuse and corpse abuse.
The children’s stepmother, Heather Leavell-Keaton, was jailed in Kentucky on child abuse charges. She will soon be extradited back to Alabama.
Aphrodite’s transfer ends dispute with Italy
The statue, being returned to Sicily as part of Italy’s decade-old campaign to retrieve antiquities it says were illegally brought to California, will be the last of 40 artifacts the J. Paul Getty Museum agreed to turn over.
Sebastiano Missineo, the minister of culture from Sicily, visited the Getty Villa in Malibu on Monday and viewed the statue.
The Getty has built a seismic wave isolator for Aphrodite that will protect her in the earthquake-prone Sicilian region, he said.
