BREAKING: Father charged in 13-year-old Janessa Shannon’s death

TAMPA — Nahshon Shannon once told a judge his ex-girlfriend was “unfit to provide a safe environment” for their children.

On Thursday, authorities charged him with the murder of their 13-year-old daughter, Janessa.

Shannon, 37, was arrested at his home on charges of first-degree felony murder and aggravated child abuse.

“I knew from the very beginning,” the girl’s mother, Michelle Mosley, told the Tampa Bay Times. “My only words to him would be ‘How could you?'”

The arrest capped a three-month homicide investigation, which began after Janessa’s body was found July 12 in the rugged, isolated Triple Creek Nature Preserve in southeastern Hillsborough.

Oracle backs online human trafficking bill, breaking with tech industry

By Dustin Volz

WASHINGTON, Sept 6 (Reuters) – Cloud services company Oracle
Corp on Wednesday backed a bipartisan proposal in the
U.S. Congress that would make it easier to penalize operators of
websites that facilitate online sex trafficking.

The endorsement of legislation advancing in the U.S. Senate
marks a sharp departure for Oracle from most of the technology
industry, which vigorously opposes the bill on grounds it would
thwart digital innovation and lead to endless litigation.

“Your legislation does not, as suggested by the bill’s
opponents, usher the end of the internet,” Kenneth Glueck,
Oracle senior vice president, wrote in a letter to Republican
Senator Rob Portman and Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal,
chief architects of the proposal.

“If enacted, it will establish some measure of
accountability for those that cynically sell advertising but are
unprepared to help curtail sex trafficking,” Glueck said.

The Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act, introduced by Portman
last month, would amend
