WBTV News at 5:00 newsletter

Hello everyone, this is Paul Cameron in the WBTV Newsroom. 

We just got our hands on the autopsy report on an inmate who apparently killed himself while inside a jail cell in York County. The coroner says Joshua Grose died of blunt force trauma to the head. It does not say how he caused it and a toxicology report is pending. Grose is accused of running over and killing his mother. There's a lot more to this story.

Authorities spent the afternoon searching a plane that flew from Buffalo to Charlotte after someone found a suspicious note. The situation is now over and clear, but we're asking officials why they considered this a potential threat.

A shooting in Nevada today at a middle school. Police say a student opened fire, killing a teacher and wounding two students. The teacher was apparently shot while trying to intervene. The shooter is also dead.

We're also have just gotten new information about a middle school coach accused of pretending to be a teenage girl on Facebook to collect pictures of naked boys.

Have you ever heard of an oarfish? These denizens of the deep are usually found 3,000 feet underwater. Some grow to 30 feet long. For the second time in a week, an 18-foot oarfish has washed up on a California beach. We've got pictures you should see.

Join Maureen O'Boyle, Eric Thomas and me for WBTV at 5:00 Tonight!
