Serial killer targets young college men?

Could there be a calculated, cross-country plot to kill young college men? It seems a little hard to believe, but two New York detectives say they can prove it.

The stories are the same all over the country–an athletic, intelligent, well-liked college student goes missing.Family and friends launch a massive search. Weeks or months later, the young man is discovered drowned. In more than 40 cases, the deaths are blamed on a drunken accident–except for one.

The death of Chris Jenkins in Minneapolis is the only one where the cause of death was changed from ‘undetermined’ or ‘drowning’ to ‘homicide.’

The two detectives from New York, Gannon and Duarte, have done something that no other law enforcement agency has ever done in this case — they looked at the big picture and visited each site where the young men disappeared. While most local investigations focused on where a body was recovered, Gannon and Duarte tried to figure out where the body went into the river.

City after city, when they’d find the spot where the body went into the water, they would find something else: The symbol of a smiley face. “It’s very disturbing,” Duarte said.The paint color and size of the face varies, but the detectives are convinced that it’s a sick signature the killers leave behind.

First it was cow farts, then it was moose belches. And now, it is … drumroll, please …
beetles. No, not the Lennon/McCartney variety.

An outbreak of mountain pine beetles in British Columbia is doing more than destroying millions of acres of lodgepole pines: By 2020, the beetles will have done enough damage that the forest is expected to release more carbon dioxide than it absorbs, according to research published in the journal Nature this week. Bark beetles also have killed swaths of pines in the western United States, including about 2,300 square miles of trees in Colorado.

The study, led by Werner Kurz of the Canadian Forest Service, estimates that over 21 years trees killed by the beetle outbreak could release 990 megatons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere — roughly equivalent to five years of emissions from Canada’s transportation sector. source

We’re Dooooooooomed.
