"He admitted he did it while drunk and heavily on drugs," Nadezhda Krasimirova, told NOVA TV's reporter in Germany, where she lives. "He admitted and started to cry in front of me. He is not like that, I cannot grasp it," she added. Bulgarian prosecutors have charged Severin Krasimirov in absentia for the rape and killing and sought his extradition from Germany to stand trial in Bulgaria. The body of the 30-year-old Marinova, a host of a regional current affairs show at a local TV station, was found dead in a park near the Danube river city port of Ruse on Saturday.

Nia Wilson was the youngest of six sisters and two brothers, but she knew how to stand out. She jumped at the chance to help others, one of her sisters said, offering pep talks to her sisters when they were down and performing the Heimlich maneuver on her aunt as she was choking at a recent family party. She loved to look pretty, the sister said, even if it meant holding up everyone else until she picked out the perfect outfit for a late-night run to the grocery store. At 18, Nia still had the bulk of her life ahead her and she had big plans — joining the Army or becoming a paramedic, or maybe a music producer would see her rap videos on YouTube and offer a record deal. But on Sunday night, Nia was attacked and killed by a man with a knife after stepping off a train with two of her sisters at an Oakland, California, transit station. One of her sisters, Lahtifa Wilson, 26, was also stabbed. She was taken to a hospital but later released. Three days after Nia’s death, her … [Read more...] about Nia Wilson had big plans.

Texas native Donna Abert Andrich says Barbara Bush saved her life nearly 60 years ago at an apartment complex in Houston. (Courtesy Donna Abert Andrich) For years, Donna Abert Andrich has held onto a letter addressed to Barbara Bush. She wanted to thank the former first lady for saving her life when she was just 5 years old — but she never knew how to reach her. The now retired middle school art teacher from Aldine ISD in Houston, Texas, briefly crossed paths with the Bushes back in 1959 when they were staying at a luxury apartment in Houston, located on Del Monte Drive. Several well-known people stayed at the short-term housing complex before moving into their new homes. "You, George and your children had just moved to Houston from Midland and were waiting for your house to be ready," Andrich wrote in the 2014 letter provided to Fox News.
