Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Cocaine Found In Billy Mays' System
An autopsy report says cocaine contributed to the death of TV pitchman Billy Mays.
The 50-year bearded TV personality died of a heart attack in his sleep. His wife found him unresponsive June 28 at their condo in Tampa, Fla.
A release from the Hillsborough County medical examiner's office Friday said Mays had last used cocaine days before his death.
The report said that although Mays died from heart disease, cocaine use was a contributing cause of death.
Man Blames Cat For Child Porn On Computer
A Jensen Beach man was arrested on charges of child pornography Thursday.
The Martin County Sheriff's Office said Keith Griffin told investigators that his cat often jumped on the keyboard when he was out of the room and that strange things would be on the screen when he returned.
Investigators said he then admitted that he enjoyed looking at a variety of pornographic images.
More than 1,000 images of child pornography were found, investigators said.
Griffin was at the Martin County Jail on $250,000 bond.
Children played with dead body for 11 days
Children spent 11 days playing with the remains of what they thought was a crocodile in a creek before a parent discovered that the body was human, it emerged yesterday.
The children had picked up parts of the badly decomposed body in Stanmore Bay on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula, just north of Auckland.
Police are investigating whether the remains are those of Alanah Brough, 39, missing since January.
Twitter hackers targeting blogger
The outage that knocked Twitter offline for hours has been traced to an attack on a lone blogger in the former Soviet republic of Georgia.
Twitter crashed because of a denial-of-service attack, in which hackers command scores of computers toward a single site at the same time to prevent legitimate traffic from getting through.
