    Gavin MacFadyen has passed away. The Centre for Investigative Journalism tweeted the news about its founder on Saturday, after WikiLeaks created a stir when it tweeted a photo of MacFadyen without any explanation. How did the highly respected investigative journalist die? Here’s what we know so far. The Centre for Investigative Journalism posted an article on Saturday, October 22, about MacFadyen’s passing.The Centre did not, however, mention a cause of death. Wikipedia briefly had an edit which said he died after a “short illness,” but that edit was later taken down. MacFadyen founded the Centre for Investigative Journalism in 2003...

    History is full of mysterious disappearances — of people, of places and even of entire civilizations. In many cases, time has not told us what happened to the populations that have vanished en masse, all over the world. Archeologists unearth ruins and uncover clues as to the demise of ancient cultures, but the fates of many inexplicably evaporated peoples remain question marks. Here are four mysteriously vanished civilizations that keep scientists scratching their heads.

    JonBenet Ramsey was killed by her older brother Burke and it was covered up by her parents after a fight over a midnight snack of pineapples, investigators have claimed. The six-year-old's mother Patsy Ramsey called 911 on December 26, 1996 to report that her six-year-old daughter had been kidnapped from her family's home in Boulder, Colorado. JonBenet, a child beauty queen, was found beaten and strangled on the floor of the family's cellar several hours after the 911 call.

    The FBI examined 81 Clinton email chains, determining that they included classified information relating to the CIA, the FBI, the Pentagon, NSA, and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency or NGA. In other words, Hillary compromised classified materials representing the full range of American espionage: human intelligence or HUMINT from CIA, signals intelligence or SIGINT from NSA, and imagery intelligence or IMINT from NGA. Of those 81 classified email chains, the FBI assessed that 37 of them included Secret information while eight included Top Secret information.

    The TNO orbits in a plane that’s tilted 110 degrees to the plane of the solar system. What’s more, it swings around the sun backwards unlike most of the other objects in the solar system. With this in mind, the team that discovered the TNO nicknamed it “Niku” after the Chinese adjective for rebellious. To grasp how truly rebellious it is, remember that a flat plane is the signature of a planetary system, as a star-forming gas cloud creates a flat disk of dust and gas around it. “Angular momentum forces everything to have that one spin direction all the...

    Seventy years ago, the small town of Texarkana became the stuff of horror movies. It began on Feb. 22, 1946, when Jimmy Hollis, 25, and Mary Jeanne Larey, 19, went to a movie. The evening ended with the young couple in a lovers’ lane near the town, which straddles the border between Texas and Arkansas. All of a sudden, a bright flashlight beam blinded Hollis and a male voice ordered him to take off his pants. Then the stranger stomped and clobbered the young man so savagely that his skull cracked, putting him into a coma for days. Larey tried...

After Scalia's death Feb. 13, the names of the 35 other guests at the remote resort, along with details about Scalia's connection to the hunters, have remained largely unknown.

About 100 emergency workers are helping with the removal. On the investigation front, the German transport ministry said both the...

    NASA's Cassini spacecraft has discovered a "mysterious feature" on Saturn's moon Titan. Scientists are working to determine, what, exactly, this feature might be. NASA reports that the feature is roughly 100 square miles, and it lies in Ligeia Mare, one of Titan's hydrocarbon seas.

    Five years ago Bobby Jamison, Sherilyn Jamison and their six-year-old daughter Madyson mysteriously vanished.

On Saturday their loved ones held a memorial for the family. The modest but emotional ceremony may have given their family and friends a scrap of comfort - but it did little to end their torment. They still have no real idea what happened to their loved ones in a case that has...
