Florida authorities went to a funeral home and used a dead man's finger to try to unlock his cellphone as part of their investigation.
Thirty-year-old Linus Phillip was killed by a Largo police officer last month after authorities say he tried to drive away before an officer could search him.
At the funeral home, two detectives held the man's hands up to the phone's fingerprint sensor but could not unlock it.

An elderly Pennsylvania man had no way of visiting his ill wife in the hospital, so he called police to help.
Montoursville Police Chief Jeff Gyurina says the 84-year-old man's same-aged wife had a medical emergency last Thursday and was taken from their home in an ambulance.
The frail man told Gyurina, who was at the scene, he had no family in the area to take him to the hospital, and he can't drive anymore.

Like everything to do with Britain's royal family, the birth of Prince William and Kate's third child is governed by a mix of tradition and modernity.
For generations it was the custom among royals — as among commoners — to give birth at home. Queen Elizabeth II was born at her grandfather's London house, and gave birth to her sons Charles, Andrew and Edward at Buckingham Palace. Her only daughter, Princess Anne, was born at Clarence House, another royal residence.
That changed by the 1980s, when Princess Diana had sons William and Harry at the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London. William and Kate's children, George and Charlotte, were born at the same hospital in 2013 and 2015, and Kate was admitted Monday in labor with their third.

Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke has asked a judge to block a subpoena in a federal lawsuit filed by 11 people injured during a violent clash between white nationalists and counterprotesters in Charlottesville last year.
The plaintiffs are seeking to compel Duke to turn over records related to communications he and other white nationalists had before the rally, along with records of efforts to solicit donations.
In court documents, Duke says the subpoena is overly broad and would impose "an undue burden and a significant expense" on him.

USA Gymnastics tried to silence top athletes after they reported being molested by team doctor Larry Nassar and as they pushed to meet with law enforcement officials, the gymnasts and their family members told NBC News.
Claims that the sports federation stressed discretion above all else are bolstered by text messages, emails and other materials reviewed by NBC News during a months-long investigation for a special edition of "Dateline" that aired Sunday.
The "Dateline" investigation also included: Olympian McKayla Maroney's first interview since her disclosure last year that Nassar repeatedly abused her; the first interview with coaches Bela and Martha Karolyi, at whose Texas ranch Nassar allegedly abused elite athletes; and the revelation that USA Gymnastics wanted Aly Raisman to promise confidentiality as part of any agreement, according to Raisman and her family.

The man who snatched an AR-15 rifle from a gunman at a busy Tennessee restaurant says his was a "selfish" act of self-preservation and he doesn't consider himself a hero. Never mind that he is being credited with saving several other lives.
"When I grabbed the barrel of the weapon it was hot, but I didn't care. It was life or death," said James Shaw Jr., a 29-year-old Nashville resident who found himself wrestling with the suspect after four people had already been fatally shot at a Waffle House bustling with patrons early Sunday in Nashville.
Shaw joined law enforcement officials and Nashville's mayor at a news conference Sunday, some 12 hours after the shooting, his right hand bandaged. Waffle House CEO Walter Ehmer, who was also on hand, thanked Shaw for his bravery.

President Donald Trump's new national security adviser was, until last month, the chairman a nonprofit that promoted false, misleading anti-Muslim news, according to an NBC News review.
John Bolton began chairing the Gatestone Institute in 2013. The advocacy group has warned of a "jihadist takeover" in Europe" and a "Great White Death" on the continent, and its articles have been amplified by a Russian troll factory.
Gatestone is "a key part of the whole Islamaphobic cottage industry on the internet," said a spokesman for the civil rights group Council on American-Islamic Relations. He called it "very disturbing" that Bolton would be associated with the organization and be "in one of the most powerful positions on the planet."
A representative for the National Security Council, which Bolton now chairs, said Bolton is aware of the story but that it doesn't comment on inquiries about outside organizations.

The Supreme Court has so far had little to say about Donald Trump's time as president, even as the nation has moved from one Trump controversy to another. That's about to change.
The justices' first deep dive into a Trump administration policy comes in a dispute over the third and latest version of the administration's ban on travel from some countries with majority Muslim populations. Opponents of the policy and some lower courts have labeled it a "Muslim ban," harking back to Trump's campaign call to keep Muslims from entering the country.
The high-stakes arguments at the high court on Wednesday could offer some indication about how a court that runs on respect for traditions and precedent will deal with a president who regularly breaks with convention.
