New details in armed robbery of NBA TV’s Kristen Ledlow

Kristen Ledlow, the host of “NBA Inside Stuff” and a reporter for NBA TV, was robbed at gunpoint and carjacked Saturday afternoon in Midtown, Atlanta police said.

Officers were dispatched to the 1900 block of Monroe Drive just before 3:20 p.m., Atlanta police Officer Kim Jones said Monday.

Ledlow told police a group of men got out of a silver sedan and approached her shortly after she pulled into her apartment complex.

“One of the male suspects pointed a gun at the victim and took her vehicle,” a red 2016 Corvette, Jones said. Using the car’s tracking device, police located the Corvette in southwest Atlanta about 25 minutes later, police said.

Ledlow wrote about the experience on social media.

“Yesterday, I was robbed at gunpoint by three men who knew who I was, where I lived, and were waiting for me when I got home,” Ledlow said Sunday in an Instagram post. “They stole my car, my purse, my wallet, my phone and worst of all, my sense of security.”

Ledlow came to Atlanta in 2013 as a radio host on 92.9/The Game. She left for NBA TV in 2014 and co-hosts “NBA Inside Stuff” with Grant Hill.

No one has been arrested in connection with the armed robbery and carjacking. Investigators have contacted the apartment’s management office for video footage.

“While I will be taking a social media hiatus,” Ledlow said in the Instagram post, “I will not become a slave to fear.”

Dog rescued after family leaves him waiting in pile of trash

Boo sat on the blue, floral print mattress for days waiting for his family to return.

But the family didn't come back. Instead, Mike Diesel spent hours for two days getting the pit bull, left behind with the family’s trash, to trust him.

Diesel, the founder of Detroit Youth and Dog Rescue, eventually won out with the help of some sausage biscuits.

“Boo has warmed up to me in an amazing way already and truly shows and proves the love of the pit bull and trust they have in humans,” Diesel told Inside Edition.

Diesel was able to take Boo to the vet where he was diagnosed with heartworms. He is undergoing treatment and will be adoptable when he is healthy.

The rescue group does not have a shelter facility but relies on volunteers to foster the animals until they are adopted, according to The Daily Dot. They have rescued about 75 dogs since 2014.

Nearly complete mastodon skeleton found in Michigan

Teacher Seth Colling made the discovery of his life while walking in a ditch looking for fish with his students two years ago at the Fowler Center for Outdoor Learning.

There was a bone sticking out of the water. It looked interesting. Turns out it was a tibia of a mastodon, which with further excavations this month was determined to be the most complete remnants of the ice-age mammal found in decades in Michigan.

“This is really a dream come true for me,” Colling said. “When I was a kid I wanted to be a paleontologist and have always been on the lookout for stuff. So this is a find of a lifetime for me.”

Using dental wear to determine, officials believe the mastodon was about 30 years old at the time of its death.

It is considered to have lived about 11,000 to 13,000 years ago. Radiocarbon dating will more accurately date the bones to within a century.

Early study shows that the mastodon carcass was harvested by primitive hunters or scavengers. They likely stored the animal’s meat at the bottom of a pond that no longer exists.

More than 75 bones, or about 70 percent of the animal, were found preserved in fine-grain pond sediment. They will be furthered studied at the University of Michigan Museum of Paleontology.

About 300 mastodons have been found in Michigan, but only about 10 are as intact.

“I think the last time a mastodon this complete was found in Michigan was in the 1940s,” Daniel Fisher, director of the museum and leader of the dig, said in a release. “As I recall, she was about 80 percent complete."

Infants should sleep in parents' room for at least 6 months, report says

Infants should sleep in the same room but not the same bed as their parents for at least the first six months of their lives, a new report from the American Academy of Pediatrics says.

>> Read more trending stories  

 The report recommends that babies sleep on a separate surface in parents' rooms, such as a crib or bassinet, but never on a couch, armchair or soft surface for up to their first birthday.

Such soft surfaces can lead to nasal obstruction and asphyxia in infants.

"Parents should never place the baby on a sofa, couch, or cushioned chair, either alone or sleeping with another person," Rachel Moon, lead author of the report, said in a statement. "We know that these surfaces are extremely hazardous."

And for tired parents feeding infants, if "there's even the slightest possibility that you may fall asleep, feed your baby on your bed, rather than a sofa or cushioned chair," said Dr. Lori Feldman-Winter co-author of the report.

The guidelines serve as tips to decrease the risk of sleep-related deaths, including sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS. Researchers say minimizing risk factors is the best way to keep babies safe and decrease the number of sleep-related deaths in infants, which currently amounts to nearly 3,500 deaths per year in the United States.   

"The whole phenomenon of SIDS implies that we don't know 100 percent what is responsible for the death, but we have theories," Feldman-Winter said.

The report cites evidence that shows parents who share their room with their infant can reduce the risk of SIDS by as much as 50 percent.

"Babies should share that sleep environment for up to one year, because there is a slight risk of SIDS that persists," Feldman-Winter said. "A baby that is within reach of their mother may have more comfort or physical stimulation from being in an environment with another person."

Other recommendations in the report include placing a sleeping infant on his or her back on a firm sleep surface with a tight-fitting sheet and avoiding the use of soft bedding, including crib bumpers, blankets, pillows and soft toys.

Feldman-Winter said a bare crib or space is best.

"There should be no pillows, sheets, blankets or other items that could obstruct the infant's breathing or cause overheating," she said.

Feldman-Winter and Moon said that even with products advertising safer sleeping environments for children, small changes can make a big impact.

"We know that we can keep a baby safer without spending a lot of money on home-monitoring gadgets but through simple precautionary measures," Moon said.

Are ballot selfies illegal?

As one of the most distinct elections in recent history comes to a close, voters are more motivated than ever to get to polls.

And people want to share their voting experiences with others.

But some of the same people who used to take photos of themselves posing with an "I voted!" sticker are switching things up and getting more personal: They're posting selfies on social media with their completed ballots.   

And while Facebook recently enabled a feature that allows users to publicly endorse the political candidates of their choice, posting a selfie with a ballot can be problematic. In many states, the practice is illegal. 

Here are the states in which ballot selfies are allowed: 

  • Connecticut
  • District of Columbia
  • Hawaii
  • Idaho
  • Indiana
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Maine
  • Minnesota
  • Montana
  • Nebraska
  • New Hampshire
  • North Dakota
  • Oregon
  • Rhode Island
  • Utah
  • Vermont
  • Virginia 
  • Washington 
  • Wyoming

But in Colorado, sharing a ballot selfie is considered a misdemeanor. In Illinois, it's a felony. 

Other states have don't allow selfies with a completed ballot because "they can be considered influencing a vote or forcing someone to show proof of voting," the Associated Press reported.

Here are the states in which ballot selfies are illegal: 

  • Alabama
  • Alaska
  • Colorado
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Illinois
  • Kansas
  • Massachusetts
  • Michigan
  • Mississippi
  • Nevada
  • New Jersey
  • New Mexico
  • New York
  • North Carolina
  • South Carolina
  • South Dakota
  • Wisconsin

Thirteen other states, including Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas have unclear guidelines on whether ballot selfies are allowed. Most of these states don't allow cameras or photos inside polling places but have no clear penalties and allow photos of mailed ballots. 

New Jersey Assemblyman Raj Mukherji called selfie ballots "a product of the times we live in."

"I was doing this for years before I learned it was ... illegal (in some states)," said Nebraska resident Nikola Jordan, who told the AP she's been taking photos with ballots for nearly 10 years. "It's all about encouraging other people to get involved in the process, to show it can be fun and exciting to make your voice heard (at the polls)."

Ciara DeBarge of Kansas City, Missouri, said she was at home with her kids; her brother, DeJuante Crawford; and his children Tuesday when suddenly someone kicked in their door.

“One first kicked in the door, yelled police and told us to get down on the floor,” DeBarge said.

She said she had never seen the men before.

“One of those guys pointed a gun at my brother. My brother tussled with him and another guy grabbed my nephew and threw him across the room and then he shot and then that’s when our dog attacked him," DeBarge said.

Young married couple mysteriously drops dead before eating dinner, police say

Cameron Hulet, 28, and his wife Courtney, 20, had just sat down to a fast-food dinner in their Dundee, Michigan, apartment Tuesday night when suddenly they apparently dropped dead.

“It’s really a puzzle,” the Hulets’ apartment manager, Dave Uhl, told the Monroe News. “There is no indication as to what happened. It’s a mystery.”

A neighbor had dropped by to check in on the Hulets but found them on the floor and assumed they were just sleeping. After coming back later, the neighbor found them in the same spot and then decided to call police.

Authorities, who are still investigating the case, discovered a pound of marijuana on the kitchen table near the Hulets’ bodies and believe that this played a part in the couple’s death. The Hulets showed no outward signs of trauma.

Military family facing huge bill after Army Reserve denies coverage

A military family is facing a giant medical bill after the Army Reserve decided not to cover it.

U.S. Army Reserve Capt. Shane Morgan, a father of two from Milford, New Hampshire, suffered a heart attack during a required physical fitness test at Fort Devens.

“I ended up doing 40 push-ups and after 40 I collapsed on the floor,” Morgan said.

It was his first physical exam in the Army Reserve; before that he'd been on active duty in the Army for 10 years.

“This past year has been as challenging and as difficult as my deployment to Afghanistan was,” he said.

Morgan and his wife, Jaime, feel like the Army Reserve has left them out in cold.

Morgan's heart attack was initially ruled by his own unit as happening "in the line of duty." But that ruling has been overturned by higher-ups, who determined Morgan's heart attack was inevitable.

According to a report the investigator filed in June, “heart disease is likely considered as existing prior to service."

Morgan says the only medical evidence to suggest heart trouble prior to his heart attack was a blood test that shows borderline high cholesterol months before it happened.

“They also had the information from my cardiologist saying the day I had my heart attack my blood was taken and my cholesterol was 185, which is normal,” he told FOX25. 

“I think they’re inept. I think they are not people who should be in those roles who are causing havoc in people’s lives for no reason,” Jaime Morgan said.

The Army Reserve's ruling means the Morgans are on the hook for the $10,000 insurance won't cover.

The couple said this isn't about the money.

“How many soldiers got denied LODs when they shouldn't. And you're told you don't voice have a voice. No, we do have a voice and were going to use it,” Jaime Morgan said.

In a statement to FOX25, the Army Reserve said, "The physical and financial well-being of our Soldiers and their Families is a top concern for Army Reserve leaders at all levels. We take all line of duty investigations seriously and will take all possible steps to ensure they are completed accurately and in a timely manner."

 Morgan said he's looking forward to the results of the second investigation.
