The structures were spotted last year by amateur satellite archaeologist Angela Micol. She used Google Earth 5,000 miles away in North Carolina.

Mysterious, pyramid-like structures spotted in the Egyptian desert by an amateur satellite archaeologist might be long-lost pyramids after all, according to a new investigation into the enigmatic mounds.

Angela Micol, who last year found the structures using Google Earth 5,000 miles away in North Carolina, says puzzling features have been uncovered during a preliminary ground proofing expedition, revealing cavities and shafts.

“Moreover, it has emerged these formations are labeled as pyramids on several old and rare maps,” Micol told Discovery News.

Can We Help Identify This Terrible Image Of A Hit-And-Run Car?



Police in West Valley City could use our help identifying a car involved in a hit-and-run. The car in the picture up there struck a 38-year-old man, who is currently in critical condition. They have a possible ID on the car, but if there’s any group that can help, it’s right here.

The car may be a 2010 or newer Honda, but it would be good to try and get some confirmation. The driver is said to be a Hispanic male who was seen, um, eating pizza, and driving erratically.

The image of the car is pretty awful, but there’s some good hints in there; there seems to be a pair of bumper-mounted reflectors at the rear, and the shape of the car is likely distorted

Facial Reconstruction Used to Help Identify Remains in Hart Co.

It’s been almost a year since the badly decomposed remains of a woman were found in Hart County. The body was beyond recognition, but now Kentucky State Police are teaming up with the National Missing Unidentified Persons System to put a face, and hopefully a name, to the woman.

Last June 25, a truck driver jogging near Waterloo Road in Hart County noticed what appeared to be a dead body. Troopers called to the scene confirmed they were human remains but an identification was impossible.

All they had to go on was it was a female between 24 and 47 years old, wearing a necklace with the letter “S” emblem on it, a gray stud earring with

Officials still search for identity of woman found dead in Hart County

In June, 2015, a truck driver went for a jog on Waterloo Road in Hart County and he came across a gruesome discovery.

The jogger called police to report he believed he had found a body. Kentucky State Police from Bowling Green Post 3 were dispatched to the scene at about 2:26 p.m. and confirmed in a wooded area off of Waterloo Road was the body of a woman.

At 10 months later, the search for her identity continues with the help of a certified forensic artist.

An autopsy performed shortly after the discovery did not help in identifying the body or cause of death, the state police reported last year.

“The woman was estimated to be between 24 to 47 years of age, and her race could not be conclusively determined by forensic anthropological examination,” the state police said

Michelle McNamara’s Obsession With Unsolved Crime Was Life-Affirming

The late author wrote a riveting story about the Golden State Killer for Los Angeles magazine. That she won’t ever see him identified is another tragic element of her untimely death

April 26, 2016

Crime yarns, as I call them, have become a staple of Los Angeles magazine. Every year we publish several big and ambitious dives into unsettling terrain, asking questions like: Who really did kill mobster Bugsy Siegel? What pushed actor Johnny Lewis to commit a grisly murder? What became of a deputy who went for a run and vanished without a trace? Given how many mysteries reside on the bestseller list, it’s no surprise that readers respond with keen interest to the stories. When writer Michelle McNamara brought to us the tale of a serial rapist (at least 50 attacks were attributed

EXCLUSIVE: Equusearch founder seeks custody of teen believed dead – KTRK

In an Eyewitness News exclusive, Texas Equusearch founder Tim Miller is trying to get custody of a 15-year-old girl he was searching for and who was believed to have been found dead Saturday.
