A nine-month-old Pakistani baby is probably the youngest ever fugitive, after being fingerprinted and charged with murder. Yes, murder.
No, this isn't a belated April Fools' Day bomb, like the epic prank pulled on this prof, but a genuine blip on a judicial system that has become the laughing stock of the international community.
According to an article in NBC News, Mohammad Musa Khan faced charges in a Lahore courtroom for his role in a mob protest in which police and gas company workers were stoned for trying to collect on gas bills.
Muhammad Yasin has since decided to send his grandson into hiding in Faisalabad to protect him from "vindictive" police. Apparently, the entire family played a part in injuring an assistant sub-inspector in the criminal case.
Ever truly been stuck between a rock and a hard place? And no, I'm not talking about a Rolling Stones tune, but that of Shanesha Taylor, who left her kids in the car so she could sit a job interview.
According to an article in Global, the 35-year-old Phoenix single mom claimed she had no one to mind her babies, so she left them in a hot car with the engine running and the windows down a crack with no air-conditioning running. (By babies, I mean literally a six-month-old baby and a two-year-old boy.)
While it wasn't her wisest move, the mom's torment is apparent in her mugshot. It's either this, she must have thought, or no future for her kids. She took the gamble.
When she returned to the car—an hour later—her baby was "crying hysterically and sweating profusely." The temperature inside the car apparently soared over 100 degrees.
Criminally negligent actions, there's no doubt. But also, somehow, sympathetic. Taylor's plight caused 24-year-old Amanda Bishop of New Jersey to set up a fundraising web page to give the woman a second chance. Taylor pleaded not guilty.
Mother of two and daughter of Live Aid founder Bob Geldof, Peaches Geldof has died at 25. While the circumstances surrounding her sudden death are not yet clear, according to an article in the Evening Standard police were called to her Kent, England home, where her body was discovered.
The young writer and TV star tweeted frequently. Her last post showed a photo of her with her mother, the late Paula Yates, who died from a heroin overdose in 2000 following the suicide of INXS singer, Michael Hutchence in 1997.
Peaches' father Mr Geldof released the following heart-wrenching statement:
"Peaches has died. We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we willnot see her again? How is that bearable?
"We loved her and will cherish her forever. How sad that sentence is. Tom and her sons Astala and Phaedra will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken. Bob, Jeanne, Fifi, Pixie and Tiger Geldof."
Her sons were both under the age of two. So incredibly sad for them to lose their mother.
These tragic celebrity deaths took the world by surprise.
