FBI seeks Uptown killer, a broken CPS system, and the Boss rocks Dallas.

FBI TO ADD MASTERMIND OF UPTOWN DENTIST’S SLAYING TO MOST WANTED LIST. Brenda Delgado has been on the run since September, shortly after her ex’s girlfriend, dentist Kendra Hatcher, was shot dead in a parking garage. The hitman and getaway driver she allegedly hired are behind bars, but authorities believe Delgado is hiding in Mexico. The FBI is now making her capture a priority.

NORTH TEXAS’ TOP CPS OFFICIAL LEAVES BROKEN SYSTEM. Jackie Freeman, the director of Child Protective Services in the Dallas region, announced her retirement yesterday. This comes after some grim reports: children spending the night in CPS offices due to the lack of foster homes, a 57 percent turnover rate among child-abuse investigators, and the likely preventable, fatal beating of a 4-year-old girl in Grand Prairie.

LOCAL MAN’S SON WINS WISCONSIN. Ted Cruz pulls ahead of Donald Trump in the Badger State’s primary. Cruz says the victory is a “turning point” in the Republican race, while Trump’s campaign released a statement calling Cruz a “Trojan horse, being used by the party bosses attempting to steal the nomination…”  On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton took to Twitter to congratulate Bernie Sanders on his win.

THE BOSS ROCKS DALLAS. Bruce Springsteen crowd surfed and played the entirety of his 20-song, 1980 album The River at American Airlines Center last night.

POLICE DOG TRACKS DOWN RUNAWAY TWEEN. This. This is why all dogs go to heaven.
