For six years the bills were paid, the grass was cut and no one noticed the body of the dead woman sitting in the back seat of a car in a garage of a residential Pontiac, Michigan neighborhood. "It is kind of the perfect storm for a mysterious set of circumstance and a challenge because of the extreme degradation of the body," Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said in a telephone interview. A neighbor cut her lawn, her mail was sent to the post office and there was no family living nearby, Bouchard said. And it's actually scary," a neighbor who wished to remain anonymous told the local TV station.

By Elizabeth Daley PITTSBURGH (Reuters) – A Pittsburgh lawyer’s online ad showing smiling robbers, drug dealers and prostitutes flashing thumbs up and thanking him for getting them off the hook has garnered tens of thousands of views and drawn fire from a local bar association. One fictional criminal pauses while climbing out a window, carrying a laptop to say “Thanks Dan,” to the camera, while a pair of men carrying handguns offer a similar message before pulling ski masks over their faces in the three-minute, 27-second ad posted on YouTube by criminal defense attorney Daniel Muessig. Muessig, a 2012 University of Pittsburgh Law School graduate, then makes his own pitch: “Trust me, I may have a law degree, but I think like a criminal.” The spot has been viewed more than 80,000 times since Muessig posted it on Thursday, and the 32-year-old attorney said he believed the tongue-in-cheek approach would appeal to possible clients. “I wanted to give people something that would be memorable and entertaining.” Tom Loftus, spokesman for the Allegheny County Bar Association, said he found the ad “insulting to Pittsburgh lawyers and lawyers across the country, who take great pride in their profession.” He said he worried that the video could be misinterpreted: “There could be kids watching it, or people who don’t even understand what tongue-in-cheek means, and what they’ll see is: if you commit a crime this attorney will get you off without any explanation.” Muessig defended the spot but said he would take it down if law enforcement or a legal professional organization asked him to.

The United States defused a brewing, and cordial, crisis with Canada on Friday, after Prime Minister Stephen Harper joked that Barack Obama has yet to deliver the beer he promised if the U.S. hockey teams lost to Canada in the Olympics. The White House responded the president does not welsh on his bets. "In fairness to President Obama, he's lost bets to me before, and he's always paid up before," Harper said to laughter from his interviewers on TSN 1050 Radio in Toronto. The Canadian men beat the United States 1-0 in the semi-finals and then advanced to gold over Sweden, and the Canadian women came from behind in a late surge to snatch gold from the United States 3-2.
