Sheila Faith, aka Sheila Dale Faith, was a 45-year-old single mother who went missing in 1994 and whose dead body was later found in a barrel, along with her wheelchair-bound daughter. Their story will air on tonight’s Web Of Lies—an Investigation Discovery crime documentary that focuses on murder victims who were killed by people they met online.

Iranians Charged with Hacking US Financial Sector

to assist in removing the malware from affected servers. Through these efforts, more than 90 percent of the threat has been successfully eliminated.

“By calling out the individuals and nations who use cyber attacks to threaten American enterprise, as we have done in this indictment, we will change behavior,” Comey said. Referring to the fact that the defendants are currently out of U.S. reach, he added, “The world is small, and our memories are long. No matter where hackers are in the world and no matter how hard they try to conceal their identities, we will find ways to pierce that shield and identify them. That is the message of this case.”

In addition to targeting the U.S. financial sector, one of the defendants repeatedly gained access to computer systems of the Bowman Dam in Rye, New York in 2013. Although the defendant never gained control of the dam, his access allowed

Two From ‘Syrian Electronic Army’ Added to Cyber’s Most Wanted

Three members of a Syrian hacker collective that hijacked the websites and social media platforms of prominent U.S. media organizations and the U.S. military were charged today in federal court with multiple conspiracies related to computer hacking.

In two criminal complaints unsealed in the Eastern District of Virginia, Amad Umar Agha, Firas Dardar, and Peter Romar were charged with criminal conspiracies related to their roles targeting Internet sites—in the U.S. and abroad—on behalf of the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA), a group of hackers that supports the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The affected sites—which included computer systems in the Executive Office of the President in 2011 and a U.S. Marine Corps recruitment website in 2013—were deemed by SEA to be antagonistic toward the Syrian government.

According to the charges, Agha, 22, known online as “The Pro,” and Dardar, 27, engaged in a multi-year conspiracy that began in 2011 to collect usernames

WEB OF LIES Tonight: Did Major Weight-Loss & Online Love Lead to Life Shake-Up for Victim Heather Jones? (Video …

WEB OF LIES continues tonight on Investigation Discovery, and many fans of the show may empathize with the struggles–and victories–of 33-year-old Heather Jones.

Nowadays, we talk a lot about the importance of having self-confidence in our society. Weight is a struggle for many of us, and whether it is 20 pounds or, as in Heather’s case, 200 pounds, when we lose it, it can be absolutely elating, the sense of freedom and new lease on our everyday lives it gives us. Divorce is also certainly common in this day and age; some numbers will tell us that 50% or more of all marriages today will end in divorce (although that can depend on the study one references, of course). Regardless, divorce is a reality in our society today, and it was a reality for Heather. Combined with a major weight-loss, Heather found herself on a new path for her life.

And, like
