Police get no leads on child fingers in trash
HONOLULU — Police say six fingers found in a Honolulu trash bin are likely from a girl who’s 2 1/2 to 4 years old.
Authorities have yet to receive a single phone call a day after making a public plea for information about the discovery. Police say many questions remain about the disturbing case and it’s not known whether the fingers are recent or older.
The woman who was digging through trash at a housing complex when she made the grisly discovery says at first she thought they were dried ginger root.
Gina Rose Vendegna tells KHON-TV she was looking for recyclables last month when she came across a plastic bag. The mother of five later noticed fingernails and called police.
John Wilkes Booth dolls pulled from Gettysburg
GETTYSBURG — Bobblehead dolls of the man who assassinated President Abraham Lincoln have been pulled from sale in Gettysburg National Military Park’s visitors’ center.
Dolls of John Wilkes Booth with a handgun were taken off bookstore shelves Saturday, a day after a reporter from Hanover’s Evening Sun newspaper asked about them.
Gettysburg Foundation spokeswoman Dru Anne Neil said Tuesday the dolls were available only for about a week before the park superintendent, the foundation president and the bookstore manager decided they shouldn’t be for sale.
The Kansas City, Mo.-based manufacturer says the Booth dolls are a top seller and more are being produced.
