It’s been two days since Jayme Closs’ parents were found dead and the 13-year-old disappeared, yet few questions have been answered.

CNN reports, “More than 400 tips have poured in since Jayme disappeared from her Wisconsin home on Monday. But the FBI is pleading for more help in finding the girl, who is the subject of an Amber Alert.”

In additions to looking for Jayme, investigators are working to understand why her parents were murdered in their home in Barron, WI. Closs’ parents were fatally shot and their deaths have been ruled homicides. Investigators believe Jayme was at the scene on the night her parents were killed, and have found the cell phone used to call the police, but have not said whose phone it is.

Last But Not Least: Barack Obama Urges Young Americans to Head to the Polls This November

With a little less than three weeks left until the 2018 midterms, the drive to get eligible voters to the polls is in full effect.

Yesterday, former president Barack Obama was featured in a video by ATTN, where he tackled seven common excuses people use on not voting. Obama insists that young Americans have the chance to see its most diverse Congress if they get out and vote this November.

Remember, if you are eligible to vote and don’t, you lose your right to complain about elected officials. At least that’s the way we heard it, anyway 😉
