Nearly two weeks after two U.S. Coast Guard  employees were shot to death at a communications station in Kodiak, Alaska, there still have been no arrests, and the FBI continues to say little about the inquiry into the killings. But agents are now seeking the public's help in learning more about two vehicles that may have been used in the April 12 shootings. Over the weekend, the FBI released photos of a white 2002 Dodge Ram pickup and a blue 2001 Honda CRV. The vehicles “may have been used in connection with the recent double homicide on Kodiak Island,” the agency said in a statement.  “Authorities are asking anyone who personally observed either of these vehicles at any time on Thursday, 04/12/2012, or before noon on Friday, 04/13/2012, traveling on Rezanof Road, Anton Larson Road, near the State Airport or the Coast Guard Communications Station, to please call the FBI.” FBI spokesman Darrin Jones declined to say to whom the vehicles are registered, where they were last seen or why they may be connected to the shootings.

A man who hid in his house with a semiautomatic rifle and ammunition fatally shot one officer and wounded another in a New Year's Day shootout that ended when the gunman killed himself, authorities said Friday. Kevin Lamm, 26, became only the second police officer killed in the line of duty in Fairbanks in 90 years. Police said the shootout began early Thursday evening when Lamm and two other officers went to a house to check on Joey Lee Dewolf, whom friends described as suicidal.

HOUSTON - A former BP engineer appeared in federal court Tuesday chained at the wrist and ankles to face criminal charges that he intentionally deleted hundreds of text messages about the amount of oil flowing into the Gulf of Mexico from the company's blown-out well in 2010. Kurt Mix, 50, of Katy, Texas, was charged with two counts of obstruction of justice and released on a $100,000 bond. U.S. Magistrate Stephen Smith asked Mix whether he understood the charges against him and the possible penalties if convicted - a 20-year sentence and $250,000 fine on each count.

LAS VEGAS -- Just when you thought it was safe to go back on those mountain trails. In a case that has stunned authorities with its ruthlessness, two Utah men have been arrested in connection with a pair of deadly makeshift booby traps set up along a popular hiking trail. One of the traps involved a trip wire triggered to send a 20-pound, spiked boulder swinging into an unsuspecting victim. The other was designed to trip a passer-by into a bed of sharpened wooden stakes. The two suspects, ages 19 and 21, told investigators after being arrested last weekend on suspicion of misdemeanor reckless endangerment that the traps were intended for wildlife.
