Pathologist's report leads to no charges filed in the death of 5th grader Raniya Wright

Saturday 21:49 GMT

A pathologist's review of fifth grader Raniya Wright’s death revealed that she had a rare birth defect that caused her death, rather than the fight that she was involved in minutes before she became unresponsive, officials announced on Friday.

South Carolina solicitor Duffy Stone said that charges will not be filed because a forensic pathologist has determined that Wright had arteriovenous malformation (AVM), where arteries and veins are intertwined rather than separated and occasionally rupture.

Friday 11:47 GMT

For a saga that’s made a lot of capital out of people dying over the past four decades, it was somewhat surprising to hear Luke Skywalker reveal to the assembled Jedi masses that “no one’s ever really gone” in the debut trailer for The Rise of Skywalker.

However, Star Wars has dropped more than a few hints that a glittering afterlife exists in a galaxy far, far away over the past 11 films. First, there were all those Force ghosts in the original trilogy and the more recent Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
