An autopsy report has revealed how a model was scalped and drained of blood, in a murder branded unprecedented “outside of wartime”. Comic book writer Blake Leibel, 35, is charged with the murder of the mother of his child, Ukrainian-born Iana Kasian, 30. The murder took place in May last year and Mr Leibel, the heir to a plastics and property fortune, could be given the death sentence if found guilty, due to the severity of the crime.
A handful of New England Patriots made a statement by taking a knee during the national anthem ahead of the team’s game against the Houston Texans on Sunday. Former Patriots tackle Matt Light did not agree with that statement. “If you think that it’s OK to take a knee during our national anthem and disrespect openly the national anthem, you are wrong,” Light told the Boston Herald after Sunday’s game. “I don’t care if you have a ‘but what about’ or a ‘it’s because of,’ that doesn’t’ matter.” Light said the kneeling would never have happened when he was with the Patriots. “As a guy that’s been there and helped set up the Patriot Way so they can walk in there and do what they do, it’s beyond disheartening,”

One of Russia’s top generals in Syria has been killed in an attack by the Islamic State militant group (ISIS), with Moscow blaming the U.S. for his death as it battles to defeat the jihadist cult in its last stronghold in the country. The Russian Defense Ministry said late Sunday that Lt. Gen. Valery Asapov "was at a command post of Syrian troops, assisting the Syrian commanders in the operation for the liberation of the city of Deir Ez-Zor." Russian state news agency Tass reported that Asapov was killed “as a result of a mortar shelling by ISIS.” Russia and Syrian government forces are waging an offensive against ISIS in Deir Ez-Zor province.
Puerto Rico’s governor met with mayors from around the ravaged island on Saturday as a dam in the U.S. territory’s northwest threatened to collapse from flooding in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello said on Friday that some 70,000 people who live in a cluster of communities downstream from the earthen dam on the rain-swollen Guajataca River were being evacuated. But municipal authorities on Saturday suggested not as many people were at risk as previously thought and that only about 320 people had been evacuated, according to a report in the local newspaper El Nuevo Dia. Officials could not be reached on Saturday to provide an update on the evacuation or the dam, which authorities had said was in imminent danger of complete collapse. Meanwhile, people across the island were struggling to dig out from the devastation left by the storm, which killed at least 25 people as it churned across the Caribbean, according to officials and media reports. “Beginning meeting with our mayors to know the most urgent needs and distribution of resources,” Rossello said in a Twitter message on Saturday. The governor planned to hold a briefing later in the day, according to media reports. Severe flooding, structural damage to homes and virtually no electric power were three of the most pressing problems facing Puerto Ricans, said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo during a tour of the island.
