A grand jury in Pennsylvania says the Catholic Church needs to answer for protecting abusers instead of victims during decades of abuse. The report by a state grand jury said hundreds of "predator priests" will not answer for their crimes because the Vatican used the statute of limitations and discouraged victims from reporting abuse. Only two of more than 300 accused priests have been charged.       White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is not going to guarantee that there is no recording of Donald Trump saying a racial slur prior to his becoming President. Former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman claims Trump said it and she has the tape. Sanders said the President has denied it and that she has personally never heard him use a racial slur.       First responders in Denver are searching for anyone who might have been injured in a natural gas explosion in an apartment building today. Denver Fire officials say the blast took place in the city's Baker neighborhood. They have no idea at this point how many people were in the building when the explosion took place.       A former Baltimore police officer may lose more than his job. A grand jury has indicted Arthur Williams on assault charges after he was caught on video beating a man. Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby said today that Arthur Williams has been indicted by a grand jury on first and second degree assault charges as well as officer misconduct. He resigned Sunday night.        The search continues for survivors and bodies in the bridge collapse today in Italy. Officials say at least 30 people are dead after a large section of a bridge collapsed in the northern port city of Genoa. Authorities are searching through the ruble for survivors and may find additional victims. The section of the highway bridge fell 300-feet during a strong storm onto buildings and railroad tracks below.        Dinosaur experts say what they found in Utah is a surprise. A study released yesterday details the discovery of a pterodactyl [[ TAIR-oh-DAK-till ]] fossil in northeast Utah. The find suggests the flying vertebrate lived more than 200-million years ago, during the Triassic Period. The fact it was uncovered in the Utah desert indicates pterodactyls lived in varied environments. Most others were found in the Alps.
