“Just after midnight, a snow- drift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, The the passengers rely on detective Hercule Poirot to identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again. ”
We are seeking the public’s assistance in locating the boy in this photo. Erick is a 17-year-old high-functioning Autistic, who left home earlier this evening without his phone.

UPDATE: Pasadena police said the woman who was kidnapped this morning and found dead this afternoon had reported domestic violence incidents multiple times over the last few weeks. No charges had been accepted against the man, who authorities believe is responsible for her kidnapping and death.
“Pasadena police said they’re searching for a person of interest in connection with the woman’s death. They said she was kidnapped hours before her body was found.”
“According to Pasadena police, they got a call Monday morning just before 10 a.m. about a woman who was being forced into a vehicle at gunpoint at an apartment complex off Red Bluff Road near Beltway 8.”

In her kennel, Nancy looks like the quietest, calmest dog. She almost always just sits and watches you intently. When you look at her, you’ll see hope and, at times, a little sadness, but what you won’t see is any energy or joy.
But when you open that kennel and take her outside, it’s a whole different story.
When you do that, you’ll see a whole new Nancy. She bounces. She runs. She zooms. She plays.
She lights up.
That’s the Nancy we want to see all the time. That’s the Nancy that Nancy herself probably wants to be all the time.
But for that, she needs you. She needs to be out of the shelter.
Help her do that. Come by and ask for two-year-old Nancy (A161284).
Although yesterday was #NationalCustodianAppreciationDay, we would like to thank them today and every day for being an essential part of creating a clean and safe learning environment at our schools. Schools, take some time to share some photos of your campus custodians! 🙏🏽

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. October was first declared as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in 1989. Since then, October has been a time to acknowledge domestic violence survivors and be a voice for its victims.
Domestic violence is prevalent in every community and affects all people regardless of age, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, or nationality. Physical violence is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior as part of a much larger, systematic pattern of dominance and control. Domestic violence can result in physical injury, psychological trauma, and even death. The devastating consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and last a lifetime.
