Police: Boy played video games before killing Grandmother

An 8-year-old boy in Louisiana shot and killed his 90-year-old grandmother after he finished playing the video game Grand Theft Auto IV.


Police have not revealed motive, but they suggested the video game may have played a role because it's "a realistic game that has been associated with encouraging violence and awards points to player for killing people."

Cleveland kidnapping survivors return to neighborhood

Demolition crews tore down two more homes in Cleveland Monday, right next door to where Ariel Castro held three women captive for more than a decade.

Castro's house was destroyed in early August, days before he was sentenced to life in prison without parole, plus another thousand years.

Crews will return to the area tomorrow to begin planting grass and flowers.

Castro's victims, meanwhile, continue with their recovery, readjusting to their new lives and even making some public appearances.

Miley Cyrus' racy performance shocks everyone

Miley Cyrus left jaws hanging after her risque performance at the MTV Video Music Awards.

At her performance, you can see the 20-year-old singer strutting around the stage with giant teddy bears. Cyrus then strips down to a nude, apparently latex bikini and starts - um, dancing? -  with R&B singer Robin Thicke and a giant foam finger.

Many called the pop star's performance offensive.

But did she actually accomplish exactly what she set out to do?
