1. INDIANA SERIAL KILLER

Looking for answers: Seven women are dead in northwest Indiana, but are there more? Authorities in Gary and Hammond are searching for answers in the thousands of vacant structures that litter the area. Authorities say Darren Deon Vann – the man who, according to police documents, admitted strangling a woman inside a Hammond Motel 6 room – confessed to killing six others and led police to their bodies in Gary. Vann has been charged in the death of 19-year-old Afrikka Hardy, the woman whose body was found in Hammond

2. EBOLA

Virus free: Freelance cameraman Ashoka Mukpo no longer has the Ebola virus in his bloodstream and will be allowed to leave Nebraska Medical Center, the hospital said yesterday. The 33-year-old was working for NBC News when he tested positive for Ebola in Liberia. Mukpo spent about two weeks at the hospital in Omaha, which said he can head back home to Rhode Island today.

3. COLORADO TEENS SYRIA

Would-be extremists: Three teenage girls who set off from a Denver suburb to join extremists fighting in Syria are back home after their parents alerted authorities, U.S. officials said. The trio was stopped when their flight landed in Frankfurt, Germany, on Friday, after the FBI had flagged their passports. They were flown back to Denver on Sunday. It’s not exactly clear how the girls planned their trip or how they were going to make their way to Syria, but authorities say their ultimate plan was to try to join extremists fighting there. The FBI has spoken to the teens and interviewed their families. At this point, the agency says, they’re not facing any charges.
