WASHINGTON -- An Air Force investigation into alleged cheating by crews that handle nuclear missiles has broadened to include roughly twice as many officers as the Pentagon's initial announcement last week that 34 individuals were under suspicion, two officers said Tuesday. The Air Force Global Strike Command confirmed that the number of officers under investigation has increased, but it refused to say how many “to protect the integrity of the investigation.” Lt. Col. John Sheets, a spokesman for Air Force Global Strike Command, said that new cases are all at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana, where the first 34 were implicated, and involve the same test that prompted the initial investigation.

The investigation into the death of a newborn baby found beaten and burned in a trash dumpster in Oildale has come to a standstill, Kern County Sheriff's Department investigators said Thursday. “I've been working in law enforcement for 25 years and this is the only case that I can recall where the baby was murdered, dumped and abandoned, and we really have no indication who the parents were,” said Kern County sheriff's spokesman Ray Pruitt. “Obviously, this baby was the victim of a violent crime and it's a troubling case," he continued.

Fans have protested the judges' split decision that made Bradley the winner, and there have been calls for the Nevada attorney general to investigate.
