Smell permeated Cleveland neighborhood

The smell permeated the neighborhood, turning the stomachs of residents and curtailing their outdoor activities.

"We used to think that it was coming from out of Ray's Sausage," said one resident. "But you smell these smells, and I live right there and ... we used to come out here and oh, these smells would just be horrible."

Ray's Sausage Co. replaced a sewer line and grease traps, trying to rid the area of the stench. But Ray's wasn't to blame after all. Instead, police said, the foul odor had a much more sinister source.

Eleven victims have been found inside and outside a home adjacent to Ray's - six inside and five outside. A skull, wrapped in a paper bag and stuffed into a bucket in the basement, apparently is all that remains of one of the 11 victims, authorities said Wednesday.

Sunny is gone, but the mystery lives on

When we got word on Saturday that Martha “Sunny” von Bulow had died after nearly 28 years in a coma, many of us reacted the same way. Sadly, we thought she had already passed away long ago.

Sunny von Bulow and her husband Claus were household names back in the 1980’s when he was charged with trying to kill her by slipping her drugs. The alleged motive: money.

She fell into a coma in December, 1982 and never awoke. The wealthy, beautiful heiress was 76 years old when she died after being in a persistent vegetative state in a hospital and then a nursing home all these years. Her husband was tried and convicted of attempted murder, appealed, and then was acquitted after a second trial.

What’s really intriguing is that people are still split over the case.

Maybe the movie “Reversal of Fortune” starring Glenn Close and Jeremy Irons has something to do with it. The movie was released in 1990, but it left audiences wondering what really happened.

SURFSIDE BEACH, Texas - Surfside's Mayor Larry Davidson says 20 homes are destroyed.

The island is trashed with household items including refrigerators, grills, and furniture scattered about the island. A storm surge of up to 12 feet flooded the island - population of about 1,000.

The Surfside police chief tells us it's pretty devastated.

"We've got houses blown into houses and in bits and pieces ... Of the 10 or so homes (on stilts) on one end of the beach, maybe two are left ... They're just in pieces. It's a mess."

Chief Smith says the man who refused to leave the island is OK: "Roy Wilkinson? He's fine, sittin' on his front porch taking it all in."

Smith's own home, built just four months ago is standing. It's flooded on the ground-floor storage area. Living area above on stilts is mainly OK.

The chief says there was a suspected chemical leak at one of the many petrochemical plants in Clute and around the port of Freeport but it turned out to be false. He says there are no problems at any of the plants.

Crews are already trying to remove debris from beach roads.
