Members of the public are turning pet detective to solve animal crimes

For many, the title “pet detective” brings to mind Ace Ventura, the fictional character driven by a desire to protect animals from human mistreatment – albeit in a comic fashion. But Ventura’s passion for saving animals is not just something out of the movies. Some real life people are devoting endless personal time and resources to solving cases involving animals, too.

Animals and pets are important parts of our lives and losing one is a terrible ordeal. Many of us form such intense emotional attachments to pets that they are viewed as members of our family. When a pet goes missing from their home, people often describe it as like losing a child.

In such instances, some owners turn to a pet detective – many of whom who work for little or no money. Despite coming from diverse backgrounds, often with little or no investigatory experience, these volunteers share a simple, common desire: to

Revealed: Trump administration members’ personal finances

This summer, the Center for Public Integrity and Reveal joined forces with hundreds of “citizen sleuths” to investigate the personal assets, liabilities, business ties and potential conflicts of interest of President Donald Trump and hundreds of his administration appointees.

This weekend, Reveal — a co-production of The Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX — will broadcast and podcast a special segment about the people behind the #CitizenSleuth reporting project and what they’ve uncovered.

A sneak peak: You’ll learn a lot about recently fired Trump adviser Steve Bannon’s million-dollar debts, a shadow White House press office that may violate federal law and some Trump officials who earn a government paycheck despite owing the Internal Revenue Service tens of thousands of dollars. 

Interested in how much Trump himself is worth? We’ll tackle that, too.

Reveal and the Center for Public Integrity will also collaborate on a second segment airing this weekend about

Cops: Gang members suspected in slaying, kidnapping had Satanic shrine

HOUSTON — Authorities say two MS-13 gang members from El Salvador who had a Satanic shrine in their Houston apartment are suspects in the killing of one teenager and the kidnapping of another. 

Twenty-two-year-old Miguel Alvarez-Flores and 18-year-old Diego Hernandez-Rivera appeared in court Wednesday on charges of aggravated kidnapping and murder. 

Prosecutors say a 14-year-old girl was kidnapped after leaving school early last month and taken to the apartment the men shared with others. 

Authorities say she was held against her will for two weeks, given drugs and sexually assaulted by some of the men. The gang members also allegedly forcibly gave the teen a tattoo of a Satanic figure, prosecutors said, according to CBS affiliate KHOU.

It’s not clear what led investigators to the kidnapped teen, the station reports. Alvarez-Flores and Hernandez-Rivera were reportedly arrested Monday at the aparment after a four-hour SWAT standoff.
