Two children were found dead inside the trunk of a car parked in front of their house, police said. A teenager staying at the house Saturday discovered the bodies of Dylan Nagle, 6, and his sister, Kelly Boisjolie, 4. A pet kitten also was found dead in the trunk. Officials are awaiting autopsy results but believed the deaths were caused by a combination of the near-100-degree heat outside and lack of oxygen. The children's mother was home when the bodies were found, said Abilene Police Sgt.

With the last victims recovered from under a collapsed tower of logs, stunned members of Texas A&M University are now assessing how a beloved campus tradition went fatally wrong and whether it should survive. Eleven students and a recent graduate were fatally crushed in the accident early Thursday, and 27 others were injured, including three still in critical condition. The final two bodies--both of young women--were removed from the log heap at 2:05 a.m.

A man who had been watching the lunar eclipse fell to his death early Monday when he tried to stop a companion from slipping off a balcony. Kenneth Hunter and Kimberly Ammons were either sitting on the railing of the third-story apartment balcony or leaning against it when Ammons felt it move, said police Sgt. Bill Pfeil. "She started to go backward, he tried to grab her and went with her," Pfeil said. Hunter, 30, died at the scene, apparently of head injuries.
