Most people probably won’t remember the first face of a child who appeared on a milk carton way back in 1979. His name was Etan Patz and the case has remained unsolved. Well, that might just have changed, thanks to Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance who reopened the case in 2010. Etan’s parents urged him to re question Othniel Miller one of two suspects in the disappearance. Seems Mr Miller performed a sudden concrete flooring renovation on the basement shortly after Etan’s disappearance. New York Police are currently digging up the basement as we speak after cadaver-sniffing dogs picked up the scent of human remains. The other suspect, convicted pedophile Jose Ramos (now in a Pennsylvania prison) may also have had access to the basement as he was working for Miller at the time. Etan’s parents have never moved from their home, in the hope their son would one day find his way back and their phone number remains the same as Etan knew it off by heart. Fingers crossed there will be closure for the family.

Remember the UPS plane that crashed in September after it took off from Dubai airport? Yeah, that one.Well, investigators might want to take another look because Al Qaeda are now saying it was downed by one of their little parcel bombs. Awkward, considering initial findings eliminated the possibility of a bomb. Al Qaeda said “We downed the plane belonging to the American UPS company, but because the media of the enemy did not attribute responsibility for this work to us we kept quiet about the operation until the time came that we hit again,” Authorities will now sift through the wreckage again to look for traces of PETN, the terrorist explosive of choice. That’s the hard to detect explosive.
