    A Texas mother was arrested after she reportedly walked into Athens Police Department and confessed to killing her 4-year-old daughter on the day she was supposed to sign her up for pre-K.

    Stacie Marie Parsons, 25, allegedly killed Victoria Wyatt the morning after her common law partner and the child's father told her he wanted a divorce. Gary Wyatt and the suspect had been married for six years, and he revealed she had always been jealous of her little girl. And, according to a family friend, Parsons made a suspicious comment days before that should have tipped off more people to the possibility that something bad was about to happen.

    A 16-year-old boy died this weekend in California after doing something a lot of other teens probably wouldn't think twice about: standing on a bus.

    Mason Zisette was just one of several teens under the age of 18 who was traveling with adult chaperones on a double-decker Starline Tours bus that had been chartered to attend a private birthday party for one of the young passengers at a venue south of Manhattan Beach. As the bus made its way down the San Diego Freeway at 45 miles per hour, Zisette -- who was seated on the roofless top deck -- reportedly stood up on his seat to dance. He was facing the opposite direction of the freeway signs and had no idea what horrible thing was about to happen.

    I've read inspiring obituaries, laugh-out-loud obituaries, and of course plenty of heartfelt obituaries, but I don't think I've ever read anything quite like what was written for George Ferguson. Ferguson passed away on June 30th, and his death notice has since gone viral -- perhaps in part because it starts like this: "What to say about George? Certainly, no one could accuse him of having been a loving son, brother, or father. He'd gladly have stolen the shirt off your back and he was generous to a fault with other people's money."

    George Ferguson's daughter Karen Shirley wrote the obituary about her dad the “small-time con-man," and it's clear she wasn't tempted to glean over the not-so-Hallmark moments of his life. No, she was pretty honest, and the result is a retrospect that's … well, it's quite the mix. As she put it, while George Ferguson may not have been the ideal father, he was likely "the most exciting member of his family and of the families he married into."

    The mother of Cooper Harris, the 22-month-old boy at the center of a soon-to-be murder trial, is now coming under suspicion in the boy's death. It should be noted that no charges have been filed against Leanna Harris, but questions have been raised. Whether those questions are legitimate concerns or just spurious assumptions and nasty speculation remains to be seen. But police have alleged that she behaved oddly in the hours following her son's death in the backseat of a hot car -- a death that prompted a murder charge against his father, Justin Ross, who insists he left him in the car by accident.
