"Bad Influence," a Rob Lowe movie currently being filmed in various locations in Los Angeles, won't be allowed to shoot in the Glen-Donald co-op building on West 9th Street near MacArthur Park if some of the residents have their way. John Medford, one of about 70 residents of the building, said Monday he is circulating a petition that seeks to reject the film crew's scheduled July 24-27 visit because of allegations that Lowe videotaped sexual incidents involving a 16-year-old Atlanta girl.

Who was Jean M. Barrie, the woman whose steamer trunk stored for decades in the basement of a Los Angeles apartment building contained the mummified remains of two babies? That's the question investigators were mulling Thursday, two days after the babies — wrapped in newspapers from the 1930s — were discovered when the basement was being cleared out. As the county coroner began an autopsy on the bodies Thursday, Los Angeles Police Department detectives were left to sift through a crime scene that also is a time capsule.
