Leading Off (7/1/10)

1. As predicted, the story of the police chief’s son will continue to unfold for quite some time. The autopsy report was released yesterday, a mere 11 days after David Brown Jr. died. He had .12 milligrams of PCP and marijuana in his system. The results also show he was shot nine times. And the questions continue.

2. Neighbors of a Bedford man are quite relieved today as the loud booms that had been going off next door have finally ended. Cops found a homemade bomb in the man’s house. I like this guy’s roommate, Alan Brown. I think he knew what he was doing when he gave this quote: “I think it’s way overblown, and for them to charge him with three felonies is ridiculous.”

3. On a much, much lighter note: Carrollton-based Woot.com was acquired by Amazon yesterday. As Tim has mentioned before, the people at Woot are pretty awesome. Please, please, please put in your earphones and watch/listen to their video explaining the whole thing. To entice you further: there’s a monkey, and he’s rapping.
