On the loose: Investigators are still looking for two convicted murderers who managed to escape from a maximum security prison using power tools. One of the main questions stumping investigators: How did no one hear them escaping?

Death Row: Richard Strong faces execution in Missouri for killing his girlfriend and her young daughter during a violent argument nearly 15 years ago.

Heck of a catch: A Missouri man has caught a record-breaking fish using bow and arrow. The carpsucker weighed a total of 9 pounds, 10 ounces.
