1. INDIANA SERIAL KILLER
Looking for answers: Seven women are dead in northwest Indiana, but are there more? Authorities in Gary and Hammond are searching for answers in the thousands of vacant structures that litter the area. Authorities say Darren Deon Vann – the man who, according to police documents, admitted strangling a woman inside a Hammond Motel 6 room – confessed to killing six others and led police to their bodies in Gary. Vann has been charged in the death of 19-year-old Afrikka Hardy, the woman whose body was found in Hammond.

Staying safe: Newly released Ebola guidelines by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention focus on better protecting health care workers. More training and supervision are key elements, as is the requirement that no skin be exposed when workers are wearing personal protective equipment. Health care workers will also be drilled on how to put on and take off the gear. The CDC has been under fire since two Dallas nurses contracted the virus and dozens of other health care workers were put under a 21-day monitoring period for possible exposure to Ebola.
