Beaty, 69, discovered the graffiti on Wednesday morning and reported it to Prince William County police. Since then, she has...

The midafternoon funeral on Friday was a largely peaceful event marred by bouts of violence – and brief periods of panic – as crowds tried to outrun billowing clouds of tear gas aimed at demonstrators and looters on...
