(CNN) — Does the word “virginity” evoke discussions of sexuality or religious belief?

That’s the question residents in Fayetteville, Arkansas, are asking after a junior high student was asked by school administrators to change out of a T-shirt that read “Virginity Rocks” last week.

Eighth-grader Chloe Rubiano of Ramay Junior High said she got the tee at a Christian festival last year; on the back, it continues its abstinence message: “I’m loving my Husband and I haven’t even Married Him.”

“I just really liked this shirt because I was always raised that way,” Rubiano told CNN affiliate KFSM. She said she was pulled out of class and given a gym shirt to change into because the message on her shirt “opens up too many doors for conversations” about sexual activity — or lack thereof.

After the incident, Rubiano’s mother, Bambi Crozier, took to Facebook to write a lengthy post defending…

(CNN) — It was a shocking and gruesome discovery: three dead infants found in a Massachusetts home so squalid that police officers had to search it in hazmat suits.

Now, days later, as investigators continue to search through what the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office describes as the home’s “deplorable conditions (such as) massive insect infestation, mounds of used diapers and feces,” a picture is beginning to emerge of the family that lived inside.

And it’s a picture so deranged, so unfathomable to a reasonable mind, that even a lawyer for the accused calls the situation “completely inexplicable.”

Erika Murray was arraigned September 12 on a bevy of charges stemming from the discovery of the dead infants at her home the day before, but she has not been charged in their deaths. The 31-year-old pleaded not guilty to charges of concealing an out of wedlock fetal death, two counts of…

BLOOMING GROVE TOWNSHIP — State police announced arrest warrants for a suspect in the fatal shooting of a trooper over the weekend.

Investigators said Eric Matthew Frein, 31, of Canadensis is a suspect in the killing of Corporal Bryon Dickson and the wounding of Trooper Alex Douglass Friday night outside the Blooming Grove state police barracks.

Troopers said Frein is not in custody and is considered armed and very dangerous.

The warrants are for a long list of charges including first degree murder.

State police said a local resident walking in the woods about two miles from the barracks found a vehicle slightly submerged in a pond. Evidence in the vehicle, including shell casings, match evidence found at the scene.

Troopers found papers belonging to Frein, along with camouflage face paint, empty rifle cases, and various military gear.

A disturbing story out of Jeffersonville, Indiana.  Joseph Oberhansley, 33, is accused of killing his ex-girlfriend, 46-year-old Tammy Jo Blanton.

Court documents show he admitted to eating the woman’s organs.

Oberhansley reportedly told police that his real name was Zeus Brown according to WDRB, and pleaded not guilty to murder and to mutilating a corpse.

“My name is Zeus Brown. I am no longer Mr. Oberhansley. I am Zeus Brown. Me,” Oberhansley said.

Police officers were called to Blanton’s home on September 11th after she said Oberhansley was outside refusing to leave, according to the probable cause affidavit.

Officers watched Oberhansley drive away, before they too left.

Hours later police returned to Blanton’s home when her coworker called police saying she did not show up for work.

Overhansley answered the door to police at Blanton’s home and was taken down by state officers when he reached for his pocket.

Police said that…
