San Antonio police trying to find a woman's corpse stolen from a casket say a man "obsessed" with her was the last to leave her funeral.
A preliminary police report released Tuesday mentions the man amid the search for the body of 25-year-old Julie Mott.
Police declined to release the man's name or further details about him, saying he was not charged or arrested.
Employees at a Virginia TV station were warned two years ago about the man suspected in the murders of a television reporter and photographer during a live broadcast early Wednesday.
According to employment files from WDBJ — the CBS affiliate in Roanoke, Channel 7 — workers were told to "call 911 immediately" if they saw ex-reporter Vester Lee Flanagan II on company property, NBC News Investigations reports.
Flanagan is the suspect in the slayings of reporter Alison Parker and photographer Adam Ward, who were gunned down while conducting an interview around 6:45 a.m. Wednesday.
The three had worked together at the TV station, where Flanagan went by the on-air name Bryce Williams. But when Flanagan was fired in February 2013, a 911 call summoned police to remove him from the premises, NBC News Investigations has learned.
A company that distributes gluten-free products in more than 50 countries around the world is recalling more than 10,000 boxes of gluten-free chocolate chip granola bears, the FDA said Tuesday.
Sam Mills USA LLC, which ships to retailers across the country, including Walmart, voluntarily recalled 11,083 cases of 4.4-ounce boxes of the gluten-free treats because of risk of cross-contamination with dairy.
The packaging states it is a dairy-free product.

A dead whale was found floating in the Oakland Estuary on Wednesday morning, according to the National Marine Fisheries Service.
The U.S. Coast Guard notified the fisheries service of a stranded whale floating in the waters between Alameda and Oakland at about 4:30 a.m., according to Justin Viezbicke, the fisheries service's California stranding network coordinator.
Prosecutors say they've decided to charge the owner of a Northern California dog-sitting service with animal cruelty after a neighbor captured video of a woman allegedly abusing a dog in her care.
The woman, identified by prosecutors as Linda Levac, runs the dog walking and boarding business out of her home in Burlingame, a city on the San Francisco Peninsula. Earlier this month, the Humane Society released a disturbing video showing a woman picking a small dog up by the neck, slamming it to the ground and hitting it.
Former San Francisco 49’ers and Chicago Bears defensive end Ray McDonald was indicted on Wednesday on one count of rape and on one count of violating a restraining order by a Santa Clara County Grand Jury, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

"I'm never eating Oreos again," Trump said, before adding that he would consider it if he could find some that were made in the U.S.
Trump's claim is partly true.
Oreo's parent company Mondelez International Inc. said last month that it decided to invest $130 million in building four new production lines at a plant in Mexico, which will replace nine older production lines at its Chicago plant.
That will mean the number of jobs at the Chicago plant will go from about 1,200 to about 600, said Laurie Guzzinati, a Mondelez representative. But the plant in Chicago will remain open.
U.S. stocks rebounded Wednesday from six consecutive days of declines, with the major averages having their best day since 2011, CNBC reported. The Dow closed up 619 points for a nearly 4 percent surge. It was the index's third-biggest point gain ever, NBC News reported. The broader S&P 500 closed out of correction territory and the tech-heavy NASDAQ closed on the edge of correction, which is defined as 10 percent below its high for the year. Experts said the rally came amid cooling fears about China's economy and on expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve might not raise interest rates next month, NBC News reported.

One of the three Americans who helped stop a terror attack on a high-speed train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris has arrived in California.
Sacramento's KCRA-TV showed Anthony Sadler walking off a commercial plane at Sacramento International Airport, accompanied by his parents.
Colorado theater shooter James Holmes has been formally sentenced to life in prison.
Judge Carlos Samour Jr. had no other option after a split jury decided the sentence earlier this month. A death sentence required a unanimous jury verdict.
Samour sentenced Holmes Wednesday after two days of testimony from about 100 survivors of the 2012 massacre. Holmes killed 12 people and injured 70 by firing upon a midnight movie showing of a Batman film.
Aleksander Skarlatos, one of three Americans who subdued a heavily armed gunman on a Paris-bound train, will be awarded one of the U.S. Army's highest honors.
Senior Army leaders say Skarlatos, a member of the Oregon National Guard, will get the Soldiers Medal — the Army's highest award for acts of heroism not involving actual conflict with the enemy.
Skarlatos was traveling from Amsterdam when the gunman emerged from a train lavatory carrying an AK-47 and a Lugar pistol. After hearing the sound of gunfire, Skarlatos called on other passengers to act, then charged the gunman, helped wrestle his firearms away and helped knock him unconscious with his own rifle.

An internal government investigation has found that federal and state regulators underestimated the potential for a blowout from a Colorado mine, documents released Wednesday show.
Investigators concluded the federal Environmental Protection Agency and state regulators underestimated how much water pressure had built up inside the inactive mine before a government cleanup crew triggered the release, according to the documents released by the EPA.
The agency previously offered only impartial information on events leading to the spill.
The Aug. 5 spill involved 3 million gallons of waste from the idled Gold King Mine near Silverton, Colorado, unleashing a torrent of toxic water that fouled rivers in three states.
National September 11 Memorial Museum/Jin Lee
Families of victims of the Sept. 11 terror attacks are calling for the remains housed under the World Trade Center to be moved amid reports of possible leaks in a slurry wall that keeps the waters of the Hudson River from flowing into the complex.
The families said in a statement they want the remains to be moved from a below-ground area at the National Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum to an above-ground tomb after DNAinfo reported that an underground leak had been discovered in the massive 4-foot-thick wall.
"It is very upsetting for families to think that their loved ones' remains would be the first items lost in the basement of the museum if water was to gush into the site,” the families said in the statement. “These remain fragments are so fragile that if they are damaged or lost, they are gone forever."
Facebook/JJ Hospice Therapy Dog
A registered nurse posted a video of her therapy dog, JJ, caring for a hospice patient, in a display of affection that has been shared more than 240,000 times on Facebook.
"What we do is absolutely touching, but the depth of the response to the video is amazing, as well as heart-warming," Tracy Calhoun, a nurse and JJ's handler, told NBC affiliate King5.
JJ's Facebook page, where status updates are written from the dog's perspective, said the woman in the now viral video has "very few people visit her."
