A 911 supervisor was streaming Netflix at work when dispatchers mishandled a shooting call

(CNN)A woman in South Florida called 911 after a bullet came through her car’s windshield — but dispatchers didn’t send help right away. Police say they mishandled the call while their supervisor was streaming a Netflix movie. “It was a very hard situation,” Herrera told the South Florida Sun Sentinel. “It was a drive-by shooting. My windshield was shattered. Nobody showed up — I had to drive myself to the agency.” Police said dispatchers failed to send help quickly because Herrera’s call was logged as a “suspicious incident” instead of a shooting. When investigators looked into the incident, they found that the shift supervisor, Julie Vidaud, had been streaming Netflix’s film “I Am Mother” starring Hilary Swank on her computer …

Deaths of 3 infants at Pennsylvania hospital linked to preparation of donor breast milk, officials say

(CNN)The preparation of donor breast milk has been linked to the deaths of three babies at a Pennsylvania hospital, officials said Friday. “Since September 30, we have changed this process, and have been using single-use equipment to measure and administer donor breast milk,” Hartle said. “We have had no new cases of infants becoming ill from pseudomonas in the (neonatal intensive care unit) since making this change.” The Pennsylvania Department of Health visited Geisinger Medical Center on October 18 and cited the hospital for not having a written policy for cleaning the measurement equipment. “We immediately corrected the citation and drafted a new policy,” Hartle said.

The FBI needs your help identifying victims of Samuel Little, America’s most prolific serial killer

(CNN)Samuel Little, 79, confessed to strangling 93 victims between 1970 and 2005 last year — triple the number of victims that Ted Bundy confessed to killing. “For many years, Samuel Little believed he would not be caught because he thought no one was accounting for his victims,” said ViCAP Crime Analyst Christie Palazzolo in a statement. “Even though he is already in prison, the FBI believes it is important to seek justice for each victim—to close every case possible.” That’s where the public comes in. FBI crime analysts believe all of Little’s 93 confessions are credible, but so far they’ve only been able to verify 50 of them. They’ve released information about five cases on the agency’s website, “in hopes …
