Fort Worth Man On Most Wanted List
Ever seen this dull-eyed sidewinder? If so, you could be $10,000 richer. The state is offering a reward for a tip that leads to the capture of Santos Francisco Sanchez, 47.

He’s been on the lam since 2003 after failing to register as a sex offender, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety. He’s 5-feet-10, and his tats include dragons, devils, skulls, and (lest he be considered a one-trick pony) hearts and roses too!

The Ebola Fight Goes On
Speaking of deadly viruses, researchers at Mount St. Mary’s University are optimistic about a new weapon in the fight against Ebola. A vaccine developed in Canada was tested in Guinea, with no cases of the viral disease found in the more than 2,000 people who were vaccinated after being identified as at-risk. A comparison group with the same number of people showed 16 cases of Ebola. “I know I should be cautiously optimistic, but I’m truly so excited by this study,” said Kathryn E. Gunn-Dye, Ph.D., Mount St. Mary’s University assistant professor of biology. “The burden shouldered by these researchers in moving forward this testing, the first of its kind, is awe-inspiring. They are giving hope to people who live in fear.”
