    Chechen leader’s brazen support for murder raises fears of a bitter power struggle close to the heart of the Russian state. Is he ill? Is he too busy trying to contain a power struggle at the top of the Russian state? Is he really going to fire Igor Sechin, his strong right arm? Moscow is awash with rumors about President Vladimir Putin, who hasn’t been seen in public in nearly a week. He’s also postponed a trip to meet with the presidents of Kazakhstan and Belarus, two important neighbors, and–even more intriguingly–skipped one of his favorite diary items, an annual...

    A Tennessee woman was driving to her mother's house when she noticed something strange in a field off the road. First she thought it might be a neighbor's light, then maybe a log on fire. It turned out to be a human body burning — and now authorities are treating the case as a homicide. "It looked just like a log. Like a 4-foot log laying there. And I thought, huh, that's kind of strange," said Elizabeth Stuard, who made the discovery on Sunday. The body was found in Adams, near the Kentucky line. It was taken to a medical...

    Police obtained CCTV footage on Monday from officials at Mile High Stadium in Denver to look for clues into the ongoing investigation of a man who vanished during halftime at the Broncos-Chargers game last Thursday. Because of patient privacy laws, they can't obtain confirmation whether the man has been admitted to the hospital. Bakke said she continues to call stadium officials.

    Scientology leader David Miscavige is often cited as Tom Cruise's best friend. He was best man at Cruise's ill-fated marriage to Katie Holmes and once threw the star a huge birthday party. But the numerous references to Miscavige left out one really sketchy detail: his wife, Shelly, hasn't been seen since 2006........ The New Yorker's Lawrence Wright reported that last year Shelley has been missing since 2006 and "her status is unknown." Just before she went missing, she had supposedly filled several job vacancies without her husband's permission. Misbehaving Scientologists have been known to allegedly be locked up in "The...

    He is the reclusive and enigmatic leader of the world's most famous cult who played best man at TomKat's wedding. But perhaps the biggest mystery shrouding Scientology chairman David Miscavige concerns his wife, Shelly, who has not been seen since 2007. Once a leading Scientologist herself, Shelly Miscavige is even credited as the cupid to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' doomed alliance. Always by her husband's side, it was her to whom Mr Miscavige turned when a lovelorn Cruise begged for help in finding love following the break down of his second marriage to Nicole Kidman. Believing the role of...
