Moose Jaw tunnels reveal dark tales of Canada's past

One of the strangest stories in 20th-century Canadian history is coming to light thanks to excavations under the streets of Moose Jaw.

For more than 75 years, city officials denied rumours of a network of tunnels located under this sleepy city, once one of the wildest frontier towns in the Canadian West.

Now part of the network has been restored and is open to tourists. Promoted as The Tunnels of Little Chicago, the underground maze has become the city's most popular tourist attraction, with more than 100,000 visitors to date.

Jimmy Lee Dykes Dead: 5-Year-Old Hostage Rescued In Alabama Standoff
Posted: 02/04/2013 5:06 pm EST

The standoff between law enforcement and an Alabama man who held a boy in a bunker for seven days ended with the suspect dead and the 5-year-old safely rescued, a law enforcement source told CNN.

Reports of an explosion at Jimmy Lee Dykes' Midland City property came first on Monday afternoon, followed by media reports of the 65-year-old's death.

The crisis began Jan. 29 when authorities say Dykes boarded a school bus and demanded that he take two boys between six and eight years old. The bus driver -- Charles Albert Poland, Jr.-- is hailed as a hero for putting himself between Dykes and the children. His valor cost him his life, as Dykes allegedly shot Poland several times before taking the 5-year-old boy from the bus.

"You didn't deserve to die but you died knowing you kept everyone safe," said a letter from a student on Poland's bus that was read aloud at the bus driver's funeral.

The bunker in which Dykes holed up was four feet underground. He equipped it with electricity and was said to possibly have weeks of supplies stored. Negotiators communicated to him through a ventilation pipe. Because of the risk of tornadoes in this part of Alabama, bunkers are a relative fixture on the landscape.

Authorities sent Ethan's prescription medicine as well as items the boy requested like Cheez-Its snacks and a red Hot Wheels toy car.

There was open communication with Dykes, according to authorities, but they said he'd made few demands, making it unclear what he hoped to accomplish.

I assume Jodi lied about not being at Travis' home when he died and lied about the Ninja attacks because she suffered PTSD because her parents disciplined her and weren't enthused about her artistic ability.

I wonder if her "beatings" caused her to steal a gun to bring along with a knife to protect herself in case she dropped the camera while photographing Travis in the shower.

Jimmy Lee Dykes dead, child he kidnapped is safe after six day standoff at bunker: reports

Associated Press | Feb 4, 2013 5:09 PM ET | Last Updated: Feb 4, 2013 5:17 PM ET

Authorities say they will be making a major announcement in the case of a 5-year-old who is being held hostage in an underground bunker in Alabama, though major news networks including CNN are reporting that kidnapper Jimmy Lee Dykes is dead and that the child is safe.

The news conference will be held Monday afternoon in Midland City. Police say 65-year-old Dykes has been holding the boy hostage for days.

Before the news conference Monday, an ambulance that had been parked near the scene could be seen driving away. However, it was not clear if anyone was inside, and the vehicle did not have its sirens or emergency lights on.

Daryle Hendry, who lives about a quarter-mile from where Dykes was holed up, says he heard a boom followed by a gunshot this afternoon. It was not immediately known what may have caused the noise.

*******
The news reports are ambiguous.

Has the news conference been held, or is this hopeful speculation regarding what people think the news conference is regarding?

CNN appears to have pulled the video of the press conference held this afternoon or it never occurred.

The local Fox station is reporting nothing.

The reason I'm somewhat skeptical this is over is because the County Sheriff was quoted saying this:

"Olson has thanked the media for patience and promised to release information as fast as possible. He also warned that unless information came from him at the podium he uses, the information is rumor and he won't speculate on it."

Alabama hostage crisis ends: Child freed unharmed, captor dead
Officers decided to storm the underground bunker where Dykes had been holding the boy after they determined he was in 'imminent danger.' The 5-year-old kindergartner, who has Aspergerís syndrome and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, was taken off a school bus Tuesday after police say Dykes killed the driver.
