On the Radar: Syrian deaths, hunt for New Hampshire girl, possible D.B. Cooper clue

Gunfire in Syria - Activists said shots erupted again in the Syrian city of Hama on Monday, a day after more than 70 people died in clashes across the country, including at least 50 there. CNN was unable to confirm the death tolls independently. There has been little break from the violence that has racked Syria for months as anti-government protesters have opposed President Bashar al-Assad's regime. Hama is considered the center of revolt.

Decision soon on U.S. hikers  - An Iranian court could issue a verdict within a week in the case of two American hikers who  have been held in Iran for nearly two years, the hikers' attorney said Sunday. The hikers were arrested and accused by the Iranians of crossing into the nation illegally and being spies.

Attorney Masoud Shafiei, who represents Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer, argued Sunday that his clients were innocent of charges. A third hiker, Sarah Shourd, was released last year due to medical reasons.

"We can still appeal this decision if we disagree with it. But I am hoping for the best," Shafiei said after Sunday's hearing, which was the last court proceeding in the trial.

New Hampshire girl missing - More than 400 leads have poured in to authorities who spent the weekend hunting for missing 11-year-old Celina Cass. She was last seen at her West Stewartstown, New Hampshire, home a week ago. The girl's name is trending high on Google and other search engines Monday morning. Her father begged for the girl's safe return Sunday.

Clue in D.B. Cooper mystery? - The FBI says it is investigating a credible lead in the case of D.B. Cooper, who hijacked a passenger plane in the Pacific Northwest in 1971 and jumped out of the plane with a suitcase full of money.  The FBI calls the case "one of the great unsolved mysteries" in its history. Watch an agent discuss the case on "AC 360°" in 2008.

    I wouldn't need to wear any masks if the troll would leave my name alone.
    I don't enjoy having to change my name.
    I do enjoy continuity.
    The troll robs me of that.

    Who needs some masks? I can do a great Michael Meyers mask by taking a Bill Shatner bust and strapping a dead animal on it for hair.

    Not that kind, Bill Miller, but doesn't Shatner already have a dead animal perl on his head?

    A Colorado Springs police officer charged with se-ually assaulting six children pleaded not guilty Tuesday to 10 counts of child po-nography charges related to DVDs that were found in his house.
    oshua Carrier, 30, was arraigned during a brief hearing before 4th Judicial District Judge David A. Gilbert.

    The seually explicit material – found on DVDs in Carrier’s Colorado Springs home – is what sparked an investigation that ultimately led police to accuse Carrier, a former school resource officer, of inappropriately touching children, authorities said.

    A preliminary hearing on the 78 seual assault counts, all related to six children, was postponed until Sept. 15 after prosecutors said in court they intend to file more charges based on accounts from other children who have stepped forward.

    The judge set a July 26 hearing for any additional charges against Carrier, should prosecutors pursue them.

    Carrier is on unpaid leave and being held at the El Paso County jail on a $500,000 bond. Authorities launched a probe into his conduct at Horace Mann Middle School in School District 11 last May after announcing that detectives found child po@nography in his bedroom during a search of his home.

    Police began investigating after Air Force investigators told them that Carrier’s name came up during an investigation into online p@-rn trafficking.
