Charlie Gard Legal Challenge Ends ~by Legal Pub

Poor little Charlie.  Apparently, his time on this earth is about to end. Chris Gard and Connie Yates, parents of little Charlie Gard are ending the legal fight to obtain treatment.  The legal battle has lasted five months and in the eyes of the parents, "a whole lot of time has been wasted."  In the couples view, the time it has taken to decide the matter in the courtroom has caused irreparable damage and that the chances for recovery are now nil.  The parents were admirably represented by barrister, Grant Armstrong.  The latest medical reports show irreparable damage to the the muscle tissue of and organs of the infant. The couple hope to set up a foundation in Charlie's name that might help similarly situated children.

Connie Yates hugged her husband Chris Gard as she told the court that they had decided it was no longer in the best interests of their 11-month-old baby to pursue an experimental treatment in the U.S.
Consequently, the legal challenge to keep little Charlie alive has ended.

Four Men Who Deserved Better ~by Legal Pub

Four young men have mysteriously disappeared within days of each other in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.  Are the disappearances related?  If so who is responsible?  While Police don't have all of the answers, they do suspect foul play.  Authorities also believe there is a connection between the disappearances. But what?  So far the police have shared very little specifics with the public.
We know that 19-year-old college student, Jimi Patrick, was reported missing last Wednesday. Two days later, Dean Finocchiaro, 18, got into a friend's car and no one has heard from Dean in days. Shortly thereafter, 22-year-old Mark Sturgis and 21-year-old Tom Meo, failed to report to their jobs.  Fortunately a cellphone ping associated with Dean led authorities to search a farm owned by Cosmo DiNardo.  In close proximity, Meo's car was found in a shack. DiNardo was charged with a gun related charge and is being held on one million dollar bond.  (He has not been charged with the disappearance of the men.)

Where there is smoke, there is usually fire. What does DiNardo know about the missing men?  If he has shared anything with the police, they are not telling the public.  But, a million dollar bond seems to send a message that authorities think he knows something about these men.  Nevertheless, all suspects and persons of interest are presumed innocent unless otherwise proven in a court of law. Stay tuned.

Update 7-13-17:  A mass grave was found with human remains.  Apparently, DiNardo is also accused of attempting to sell a Nissan car belonging to one of the men.
