Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Cab Driver Beheads Self in Bizarre Suicide
A taxi driver decapitated himself in his cab in what appears to have been a gruesome suicide.
The man, believed to be in his 30s, tied a rope to a lamppost and the other end around his neck before driving off in Southwark, southeast London, on Friday.
His body was found by police slumped in the car — with his severed head yards away.
Police are treating the driver's death as suicide and are trying to trace his next of kin.
Officers were called at 12.40 a.m. Friday to the horrific scene in Great Suffolk Street, where the car had crashed into a pillar.
12-year-old boy, Remains Jailed in 5-Week-Old Cousin's Death
A Cobb County judge has ruled that a 12-year-old Florida boy will remain in jail in the death of his 5-week-old cousin.
Juvenile Court Judge A. Gregory Poole ordered the boy, who is from Tampa, held until the Sept. 8 trial at a hearing on Friday. The boy entered a not guilty plea.
Police say a 22-year-old Kennesaw woman left her daughter in the car with the boy Saturday while she went into a store, and called police when she came back and found the baby was not breathing.
The baby was pronounced dead at a hospital Sunday night. Police say an autopsy showed the baby died of blunt force trauma.
The boy is being held at the Cobb County youth detention center on charges of murder and cruelty to children.
