AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine's medical examiner says a 15-year-old girl police believe was lured to her death by a man using a phony Facebook profile died from asphyxiation.
The official cause of Nichole Cable's death was given Thursday as "asphyxia due to compression of the neck." Authorities haven't elaborated.
Chief medical examiner Dr. Margaret Greenwald released the autopsy results after consulting with the state police crime lab, which has been reviewing evidence.
Twenty-year-old Orono resident Kyle Dube (DOO'-bee) is being held on murder and kidnapping charges in Nichole's death.
Police say he used a fake Facebook profile to lure her from her Glenburn home before killing her May 12. Her remains were found in woods in nearby Old Town days later.
Dube's lawyer is out of town and unavailable for comment.
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Federal prosecutors in New Jersey have provided new details on how an international cybercrime ring broken up this week accessed some customer accounts at more than a dozen leading financial institutions and payroll services.
According to an amended complaint filed Thursday in Newark, the hackers used a number of unlawful means to obtain customer log-in information, such as usernames and passwords, to steal millions of dollars.
The government says no wider data breaches are alleged to have occurred.
Eight people are charged in the scheme.
Customer accounts were targeted at Aon Hewitt, Automated Data Processing Inc., Citibank, E-Trade, Electronic Payments Inc., Fundtech Holdings LLC, iPayment Inc., JPMorgan Chase Bank, Nordstrom Bank, PayPal, TD Ameritrade, TIAA-CREF, USAA, Veracity Payment Solutions Inc. and the payroll arm of the U.S. Department of Defense.
The call came in about 1:30 Thursday afternoon of a shooting on Cherokee Street; the Cherokee Place Business Incubator where several businesses are located. The victims' names have not been released, but we do know two men and two women, believed in their 40's or 50's, were killed at the A-K Home Healthcare office.
Ann McCullough is Cherokee Street Business Association Liason, "we're very strong and vibrant community and will continue to move forward as a creative, artistic district. And we all look at for each other and I just think it is going to remind people that they need to be aware of their surroundings."
That weapon, a semi-automatic handgun, has been recovered.
