WANTAGH | Police have found what they suspect are human remains in two locations near a New York beach, bringing to 10 the number of potential victims of a suspected serial killer.

Both sets of remains were sent to the Nassau County medical examiner for further analysis.


Flower girl, 6, dies in crash on way to wedding

RALEIGH | A 6-year-old flower girl was killed and two bridesmaids injured when their car was hit head-on by another vehicle as they drove to a wedding.

Kindergartner Ava Kendall was killed Saturday when the other vehicle crossed the center line. The car’s driver and front-seat passenger, both bridesmaids, remained hospitalized Monday.

The wedding was for Ava’s baby sitter, who ran to the scene from the venue in Greenville.

The driver of the other vehicle, Mupin Wu Cummings, 39, of Pinetops, was in serious condition two days after the accident. Highway Patrol Trooper David Swanson said prosecutors are considering pressing charges in the case.

FARGO | Floodwaters near two small towns “under siege” north of Fargo started to recede, but more than 60 miles of roads remained closed and emergency crews were prepared to respond to calls for evacuations, officials said Monday.

The north-flowing Red River crested in Fargo over the weekend at 38.75 feet, the fourth-highest flood on record. Fargo officials said the levees were holding in the city and offered to help with unprecedented flooding in Cass County directly north of Fargo. The largely rural territory is dotted with small towns, many with just a few hundred residents.

“The area from Harwood to Argusville is under siege, more than it probably has been in history,” North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple said Monday.
