The apology comes exactly a decade after the 2012 trial that resulted in some members of the gangs being convicted for their crimes. We hear from Maggie Oliver, the former detective who blew the whistle on the police’s failure to tackle these crimes. Early Thursday morning, police heard a woman yelling in distress, conducted a hostage rescue operation and rescued her from the house. Anya Taylor-Joy's decision to leave school at 16 to pursue a career in acting has certainly paid off. In 2020, in the first month of its release – a staggering sixty-two million households watched her play chess prodigy Beth Harmon in the Netflix mini-series 'The Queen’s Gambit'. Inside the home, police found a man dead on the second floor. She discusses her latest film – The Northman - a brutal and bloody viking revenge epic.

In August 2018, Kylie Moore-Gilbert, an Australian-British academic travelled to Iran to attend a seminar and conduct academic research. The medical examiner will determine the cause of the man's death, but police said they believe it was self-inflicted.

Accused of espionage, she was imprisoned and later convicted and given a ten year sentence. Investigators have not released information on the relationship between the man and the woman but said it was a close relationship. She was released in November 2020 as part of a prisoner exchange deal negotiated by the Australian government. She’s written about those 804 days, in a new book The Uncaged Sky. School officials said Melissa Jones Elementary and Baldwin Middle School would have a regular school day but would forgo any outdoor activities until the situation was resolved.
