Georgia Teens Found Dead Behind Publix Store
Were Shot in Head, Medical Examiner
Reviewing Surveillance Video Behind Store
The teens found dead behind a Georgia grocery store were shot in the head,
the Medical Examiner said Tuesday evening, as police searched for answers in
the double homicide.
The victims, identified as Natalie Henderson and Carter Davis, both 17, were
found dead by a delivery driver behind a Publix supermarket in Roswell,
shortly before 6 a.m. Monday, the Roswell Police Department said.
Roswell police told ABC News there were "indications...it was a
relationship-based crime but that can’t be confirmed yet."
said detectives are reviewing surveillance video, looking for witnesses and
following up on leads.
Former FBI special agent and ABC news consultant
believes they were drawn there before being killed, by someone they may have
known. He also believes the video may provide all the information needed to
solve the case.
Publix spokeswoman Brenda Reid told ABC News that
the company could not comment on an open investigation but added, "Our
prayers and thoughts are with the family members of those two young people.
We just pray for their peace of mind and recovery."

Store Manager Cites High
Crime Area & Robberies
A woman from Gary,
Ind., says she was discriminated against and kicked out of a Family Dollar

Sarah Safi, 32, the mother of four said she had never before
experienced discrimination like she did Monday at a Family Dollar store in
Gary, where she went to purchase charcoal for a family barbecue. "I might
have made it 10 steps into the store and I hear the lady behind the counter
say, 'Ma'am, you need to take that off your face or you need to leave my
store,'" Safi said.
At that point, Safi began to record the exchange
on her cell phone. Safi, who was born and raised in Texas, moved to Gary a
few years ago. She told the clerk she wears a niqab and hijab for religious
purposes; the clerk, who identified herself as the manager, insisted Safi
"I understand, but you have to understand too this is
a high crime area and we get robbed a lot. You need to remove that from your
face or remove yourself from the store," the clerk is seen saying on the

religion, freedom of speech, and I have a right to wear whatever I want,"
Safi said. While her children waited in the car, the Family Dollar employee

worker also had parting words for her as she was on her way out.

FBI seeking public
comment on cargo theft reporting procedure
Public comments are being sought on a proposal by the nation's top law
enforcement agency to extend the use of its cargo theft incident report.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniform Crime Reporting Program is
seeking approval from the Office of Management and Budget to continue its
current electronic cargo theft collection protocol. According to a
notice published July 20 on The Federal Register, the agency

electronic submission of cargo theft reports is a good thing. He said some
jurisdictions have complained that providing information is labor-intensive
and time-consuming, and should be automated.
Retention Bonuses May be
in Jeopardy Long Term
Sports Authority Judge Rejects $2.8M Exec
A Delaware bankruptcy judge rejected a
move to pay the liquidating retail chain's executives up to $2.8 million in
bonuses. During a hearing in Wilmington, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Mary F.
Walrath ruled that the plan to award certain Sports Authority
executives bonuses would be an improper transfer of estate property to
insiders, siding with the U.S. Trustee's Office, which argued the
payment would simply transfer over the estate's cash collateral to
top brass while the rest of the employees are now unemployed.
Hannah Mufson McCollum, an attorney for the bankruptcy watchdog, noted
that her office received several angry emails from former Sports Authority
employees, no longer employed after the chain
liquidated all of its roughly 450 locations, about the
potential bonuses, and Judge Walrath said the ex-workers' pushback was
"It is inappropriate to pay executives bonuses
when everyone else is losing their jobs," the judge said from the bench. "Quite frankly, I'm
not surprised employees are sending angry emails about it."

Analytics Is Changing
Way Companies Assess Risk, Fraud - Part 2
Scott Stephenson, chairman and chief executive of Verisk Analytics, a
provider of data, analytics and decision support software primarily for the
insurance, natural resources, and financial services sectors, discusses how
analytics is changing risk assessments and how analytics helps companies
How does data analytics help fight fraud?
Mr. Stephenson: Fraud fighting is usually a network problem, with
the bad guys preying on multiple market participants by using multiple
identities. Early detection means containment of fraud and a reduction in
payments to fraudulent actors. The use of innovative analytics can
proactively detect networks of special interest and flag organized fraud
activity. In the traditional approach, fraud investigators start with single
suspect data points, such as name or address, then they reactively build a
network with the associated data.
A new approach makes the process
proactive by scanning data sets to detect fraudulent networks and using
advanced analytics to identify network attributes, then scoring and
prioritizing those networks based on their fraud potential. When we overlay
data from social media or data derived from mining the text of claims
adjusters' notes-and then apply the new data-enhanced analytics-we have a
much more comprehensive toolbox to use in fighting fraud.
What are the top three risks for companies?
Stephenson: The top three risks companies face today are
first-party risk associated with their own operations, third-party risk
associated with supply chains and, increasingly, cyberrisk. I suppose the
point about first-party risk is fairly obvious, but in a world that is
increasingly knowledge-intense, regulated, global and fast-moving it
requires more diligence than ever to ensure you're staying between your own
lines. We see a steady stream of companies whose market caps took big hits
because of a breakdown in the performance of their core processes.
for third-party risk and supply chains, a company's risk assessment doesn't
end at origin locations. Each intermediary and throughput
location-distribution center, warehouse, rail terminal, truck stop-has
logistics operations and potential risks that must also be considered. wsj.com
Disney may track park
visitors using shoe recognition tech
Disney was recently awarded a patent that describes identifying and tracking
its visitors based on their footwear in order to provide customers with
As a guest enters a theme park, cameras would
capture their shoe's color scheme as well as brand and model. Further,
sensors placed in the ground would recognize and store shoe size and tread
Individuals could then be recognized by other cameras and
sensors as they move about the park.
But the patent also suggests
that the guest's personal data (name, hometown, interests, etc.) could be
linked to the footwear data to customize the individual's experience.
Perhaps the most interesting argument in the patent is that tracking
footwear is less invasive than other current methods, even when the
individual knows they're being tracked.

Study finds dozens of Canadian businesses have paid
ransoms to regain control of data after cyber attacks
A new report has revealed dozens of Canadian organizations were
forced to pay attackers over the past year to regain access to computer files
and IT systems infected with ransomware. The Osterman Research study published
by Malwarebytes found 44 of the 125 Canadian respondents, all of whom were
anonymous, reported having a ransomware attack on their organization in the
previous 12 months.
majority of the victims, 33 of the respondents, said they'd paid ransoms with
costs ranging from $1,000 to $50,000. The study also found 11 of the 44
organizations targeted by ransomware had to shut down their business for a time
to deal with the attack and devote an average of nine person-hours to recover.

Solving online fraud
Digital Identity's Call For Democracy
online fraud's rapid growth into a shady multibillion-dollar annual
business, preventing it is becoming increasingly critical for all merchants
and consumers. One area where fraud is being fought is within the
gaping loopholes in identity authentication. Just in the last six
years, Fraudsters are estimated to have stolen over $100 billion.
Travis Jarae, an industry leader focused on initiatives related to the
future of identity verification and developing FinTech compliance standards,
knows firsthand the verification challenges plaguing the payments ecosystem
and the future of digital identity."A great number of companies today are
trying to tackle some of the biggest global issues, which revolve around the
lack of a solid identity verification solution," said
"The issue of
identity verification fringes upon a host of other related issues such as
cyberthreats, identity fraud, and financial inclusion. Any solution
developed to solve issues around identity; however, will need to be built
for financial services first" Jarae said.
While biometrics and social data are viable
solutions for identity verification, Jarae thinks of the blockchain
as the breakthrough innovation that holds the most potential.
