TULALIP, Wash. (AP) — The Justice Department's December announcement that it would allow the nation's Indian tribes to legalize and regulate marijuana on their reservations brought notes of caution — if not silence or opposition — from many tribes.
A gunman who killed seven people in rural Missouri before turning the gun on himself was related to at least four of his victims, police said Friday. Seven people were found dead in four different homes in the sleepy Bible Belt village of Tyrone, in the south-central Ozarks section of the Midwestern state. The shooter, Joseph Jesse Aldridge, 36, was later found slumped over inside a pickup truck, apparently from a self-inflicted fatal handgun wound. His mother Alice Aldridge, 74, was meanwhile found dead in a fifth house in Tyrone "from natural causes," the Missouri State Highway Patrol said.
