Victims, public officials react to theater shooting verdict

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 07/17/2015 - 10:37

FILE - In this July 25, 2012 file photo, a picture of Gordon Cowden, who was killed in the 2012 Aurora movie theatre massacre, is surrounded by flowers at a makeshift memorial across from the movie theater, in Aurora, Colo. Cowden, 51, went to the movie with his two teenage daughters. "A quick-witted world traveler with a keen sense of humor, he will be remembered for his devotion to his children and for always trying his best to do the right thing, no matter the obstacle," his family said after his death. His children escaped the theater unharmed. One of his daughters, Brooke Cowden, testified that she had spent the day with her father, baking cookies and running with him as they sometimes did. While she was on the stand, prosecutors showed her a picture of her father and herself that he had taken during a hike. She recalled Cowden telling her he loved her just before he died.

AP PHOTOS: In rural Georgia, a junkyard of classic cars

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 07/17/2015 - 10:27

Eddie McDaniel, who goes by Fast Eddie, walks through Old Car City, the world's largest known classic car junkyard, where he occasionally plays piano for visitors Thursday, July 16, 2015, in White, Ga. Over 4,000 classic cars decorate 32 acres of forest which have been turned into a junkyard museum by owner Walter Dean Lewis. The two grew up playing in the cars on the lot which started as a general store selling auto parts in 1931 by Lewis' parents. Lewis stopped selling parts about six years ago when he realized he could sustain the business more as a museum, charging $15 for visitors just looking, and $25 for photographers. Many of the cars have never moved in over 30 years and in some cases, trees now grow through them, even lifting some off the ground. (AP Photo/David Goldman)WHITE, Ga.
