Two skulls in a Scottish museum spark a modern-day forensic investigation into the 1819 murder of a Chief and the brutal abduction of his wife, “Mary”. They were among the last of the Beothuk of Newfoundland -a mysterious people who painted themselves red and who inspired the English term “Red Indian”.
The man responsible for their death was a British Justice of the Peace. He testified in court that the killing was an act of self-defense however, modern forensic science, a surprise witness, and DNA testing will prove his version was a lie; a cover-up for a revenge killing and kidnapping that would lead to the extinction of an entire People.
Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden has been killed by US forces in Pakistan, President Barack Obama has said. Bin Laden was shot dead at a compound near Islamabad, in a ground operation based on US intelligence, the first lead for which emerged last August. Mr Obama said US forces took possession of the body after "a firefight".
Bin Laden is believed to have ordered the attacks on New York and Washington on 11 September 2001 and a number of others. He was top of the US' "most wanted" list. DNA tests later confirmed that Bin Laden was dead, US officials said.
Announcing the success of the operation, Mr Obama said it was "the most significant achievement to date in our nation's effort to defeat al-Qaeda". The US has put its embassies around the world on alert, warning Americans of the possibility of al-Qaeda reprisal attacks for Bin Laden's killing.

Aug. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Several hundred Thai protesters stormed a state-run television station in Bangkok and thousands clogged the capital's streets, stepping up their challenge to Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej.
Wielding national flags and wearing yellow scarves, demonstrators rocked the TV building's gate back and forth for about a minute before police inside retreated and protestors stormed the building. NBT anchor Jirayu Huangsup, on air before the channel went blank, escaped through an air ventilation shaft, he told Thai PBS channel.
``We are going to protest all over town to oust Samak,'' said Parnthep Pongpourpan, an organizer. ``Samak has tried to stop our rallies so many times but he cannot. We expect that he will resign under the pressure.''
The baht fell to the weakest in almost a year and stocks dropped as the government said it was preparing to arrest those seeking to overthrow the government. Two years ago, protests led by the same group resulted in a coup that ousted former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
The People's Alliance for Democracy, which claims Samak is a nominee of Thaksin, said they'll block highways connecting Bangkok with northern provinces, seize ministries and close Phuket and Hat Yai airports today. Led by Sondhi Limthongkul, a former Thaksin business associate who fell out with him in 2005, they've held daily demonstrations for the past three months.
Traffic, Businesses Disrupted
The protests may backfire as they disrupt traffic and businesses, said Thitinan Pongsudhirak, director of the Institute for Strategic and International Studies at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok.
``This is all provocation today from the People's Alliance to generate an overreaction from the government,'' he said. ``If Samak doesn't react hastily and holds his ground, the protesters may become frustrated. Then we might see the worst case scenario where the protesters become uncontrollable.''
Thailand's benchmark SET Index has fallen 23.7 percent since protests began May 25. Economic growth slowed for the first time in more than a year last quarter, a report showed yesterday, as the protests eroded consumer confidence.
``Thailand is in a nightmare,'' Kongkiat Opaswongkarn, chief executive officer at brokerage Asia Plus Securities, told Channel 9 television. ``How can the country exist when people don't obey the rules?''
Clubs, Knives Seized
Earlier this morning, police detained 80 people and collected dozens of golf clubs and foot-long knives from protesters who tried to take over the station, said Surapol Thuanthong, a police spokesman. Police had managed to secure the office before the second wave of protesters.
``We are compiling evidence for charges of an attempt to overthrow the government,'' Surapol told Thai PBS. Senior police officials are meeting now to develop a response to the break in.
NBT is a state-run television station that was renamed and revamped earlier this year by Jakrapob Penkair, an anti-coup activist who resigned from the cabinet in May after police said they would charge him with insulting King Bhumibol Adulyadej. The station regularly hosted pro-government shows that countered allegations made by the People's Alliance.
Perapong Manakit, a spokesman for the Defense Ministry, told TNN television that the situation is under control so far.
``We will not use force until the situation develops into a riot,'' he said. ``Now the situation is not that serious except at the NBT station.''
A People's Alliance spokesman condemned the use of weapons and encouraged police to arrest those who break the law.
``Some people can claim they are from the People's Alliance and we don't have DNA tests to prove whether they are or not,'' said Parnthep. ``We request that policeman follow the law and arrest those people.''

California resident Ann D. Ukrainetz appeals to Princes William and Harry to investigate why her claim to be their great aunt has been dismissed offhand by the Royal Family. Evidence supports her claim and the late Princess Diana's mother mentioned Ann in her book, but the Royal Family seems to wish the matter would just go away. Ukrainetz has offered to submit to DNA testing but so far no one else is willing to do so. She says she doesn't want anything from the family, other than being acknowledged as a relative and she would like to get to know her grand nephews, Prince William and Prince Harry.
