EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Hope everyone's hump day has been going well! We have been working on several local stories this Wednesday.
Here are some for you to check out this afternoon:
1. Ripley's recently released their latest book, "Ripley's Believe It or Not! Unlock the Weird!" The company says the book features "hair-raising photos," "mind-blowing facts," and "freaky stories from around the world." But it also features the story of East Texas residents Josten Bundy and Elizabeth Jaynes, who in 2015 were ordered to tie the knot.
2. Tuesday evening, Harrison County deputies responded to a residence on the east side of Longview regarding a burn victim. Officials say a 10-year-old boy was badly burned after he lit a piece of material on fire and threw it into a cup containing gasoline, possibly mixed with paint thinner.
3. Rusk County authorities found Oscar Armando Dono's body on Sept. 29. According to the sheriff's office, a licensing officer was out doing a standard litter abatement on a property in the northeastern part of Rusk County near Tatum when he found Dono's body.
4. As we await a cold front that should begin to move into the NW sections of East Texas early tomorrow morning, we sit under a partly cloudy sky with a slight chance that a few showers and/or thundershowers may form during the rest of the day today. Those chances will remain at 20% or less. Very warm and humid conditions today, not as warm tomorrow and on Friday, but we certainly will warm up over the weekend and into next week...upper 80s are forecast then.
