First Drip (7/3/14): Remains of missing teacher Bianca Tanner found, more

CMPD believes it's found the remains of missing teacher Bianca Tanner in southwest Charlotte. Her boyfriend Angelo Smith was charged with her murder this morning.

As the North Carolina coast prepares for the arrival of Hurricane Arthur, which was upgraded to a category one early Thursday, Gov. McCrory tells residents not to "put your stupid hat on."

Details were unsealed yesterday in the arrest of a 19-year-old Colorado woman who admitted to falling in love with an ISIS fighter online and planning to leave the U.S. to support his cause in Syria. "[Shannon] Conley, licensed as a certified nurse's aide in Colorado, according to the affidavit, told investigators that she hoped to meet her online suitor in Syria and reside with him near the Turkish border as his wife and a camp nurse. Her parents told investigators her suitor was a 32-year-old Tunisian man, whose name is redacted in the documents."

Facebook has finally addressed the controversial experiment it conducted on some of its users, where it manipulated news feeds to be more positive or negative to see how that affected users' moods. Second-in-command Sheryl Sandburg told the Wall Street Journal: “This was part of ongoing research companies do to test different products, and that was what it was; it was poorly communicated. And for that communication we apologize. We never meant to upset you.” But she didn't apologize for the experiment.
