Antonin Scalia’s body flown back to Virginia
In Washington, D.C., an American flag flies half-staffed in front of the Supreme Court in honor of Justice Antonin Scalia. His body was taken to a West Texas airport to later be flown back to Virginia. The Scalia family reports that no additional autopsy was needed to determine his death. They strongly believe that he died of natural cause.
Missing man found dead in Prince George’s County
Osama El-Atari, 37, from Leesburg, Virginia was reported missing on Thursday. El-Atari was found shot dead on Saturday at 3:40 p.m. inside a pick-up truck in the 9000 block of Armstrong Lane in Upper Marlboro. Police are still searching for the shooter, as police can not pinpoint a motive for the murder. A $25,000 reward is being offered to anyone with information that will lead to an arrest.
Disney cruise rescues suspected migrants
A Disney cruise ship headed towards the Cayman Islands picked up 12 suspected migrants southeast of Cuba on Sunday. The U.S. Coast Guard reported the rescue. The group of suspected migrants were found around 8 p.m. on Saturday. The Disney Wonder was heading from Miami to Grand Cayman. The 12 Cuban migrants were on a “rustic” vessel, U.S. Coast Guard 7th District spokesman Jon-Paul Rios said. Rios added that it’s not clear if the migrants were heading to the United States.
Obama to name Scalia’s replacement; McConnell to block nomination
President Barack Obama is left to fill the Supreme Court seat of deceased Justice Antonin Scalia. Immediately following Scalia’s death, Obama announced that he would be choosing a justice nominee to replace Scalia. Republican leaders and leading Republican presidential candidates are demanding that the lame duck president wait and allow the new president to choose the justice after the election. Senator Mitch McConnell stated that the voters should decide who will be the next Supreme Court justice with the election of the president later this year. McConnell threatened to block Obama’s nomination if an attempt to replace Scalia is made this year.
