Orange County deputies are looking for a man believed to have burglarized a Mission Viejo home in February while the homeowners were sleeping upstairs. The man, believed to be 17 to 20 years old with dark hair, entered the home on Feb. 18 through an unlocked sliding door about 3 a.m., the Orange County Sheriff's Department said in a statement.

In a video released Wednesday, former neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman walks the scene where he shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, describing for police what he said happened that night. Zimmerman said to police in the video that he fired a single shot after Martin wrestled him to the grass and began banging his head repeatedly into concrete. “It felt like my head was going to explode,” Zimmerman said, “and I thought I was going to lose consciousness.” The video was filmed the day after Zimmerman shot Martin.

The video of the beating and sexual abuse of five young alleged thieves at the hands of vigilantes has provoked widespread outrage here. But in some quarters, there have been disquieting voices of approval. The video landed on YouTube. It shows the cowering teenage boys being slapped in the face and forced to French kiss one another. Each is forced to say that they are about to be raped as punishment for robbing houses. In the state of Nayarit, where the incident took place, many people suspect that the abusers might be police officers.

After conquering the desert with star-studded sets at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival the last two weekends, Pharrell Williams' iron-clad grip on the pop conversation continues with his latest video, “Marilyn Monroe.” The video, which debuted Wednesday, doesn't boast much of a plot. It does, however, offer plenty of gorgeous women, flashy choreographed vignettes and lots of shots of his beloved, oversize hat. There's even an appearance by Kelly Osbourne. Here are five things we learned from watching: PHOTOS: Faces of Coachella 2014 1. He loves all kinds of women, OK. Pharrell faced some pretty harsh, and woefully unfair, criticism when he released the cover art to his album “Girl,” which featured him and three women all clad in robes and sunglasses.

A small group of people stood off to the side of a road near Baltimore on Tuesday afternoon, staring at a column of flames from a derailed frieght train in the distance. "How far -- how far away you think we are?" a man asked. Before anyone could answer, a large explosion ripped through the air, sending a response to the onlookers scurrying away: Too close. The train explosion could be felt for miles in Rosedale, a few miles east of downtown Baltimore, where residents could see a towering black column of smoke rising into the air after the blast.

The HTC Droid DNA has one of the most impressive displays of any smartphone, but even that doesn't make up for some bothersome problems the device has. The Droid DNA falls into the category of jumbo-sized phones, but its 5-inch screen is different from the rest because it has 1080p full HD. It has 1,920 by 1,080 pixel resolution, and it also has a whopping 441 pixels per inch density. To put that in context, the iPhone has just a 326 ppi. Everything on this display is crisp and sharp.

Parents are not out to get their children hurt when they grab for the video camera; things just happen, and that's what makes the pratfalls and comedy of errors so amusing. The child would have hit his head or run into the wall regardless of whether there was a video camera running. I feel censorship is being proposed when Rosenberg suggests that the show no longer accept videos containing children. Please, can we enjoy this little show without feeling guilty or taking it too seriously?

On KTLA-TV today, we gawped at Taco Bell's plan to introduce a Mountain Dew-and-orange juice concoction to its breakfast menu. We also looked at the latest moves toward a merger of American Airlines and US Airways, and a report showing that the jobs that are returning to the economy pay a whole lot less than the ones we lost.
