Kraft recalls 8,000 cases of cheese slices
NORTHFIELD, Ill. (WHP CBS 21) – Kraft Foods Group is voluntarily recalling 7,691 cases of select varieties of regular Kraft American Singles Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product. A supplier did not store an ingredient used in this product in accordance with Kraft’s temperature standards. 

While unlikely, this could create conditions that could lead to premature spoilage and/or food borne illness; therefore, the company is issuing the recall as a precaution. Kraft has had no consumer illness complaints for this product associated with this recall. 

The affected product is limited to four varieties with "Best When Used By" dates of February 20, 2015, and February 21, 2015. The affected product was shipped to customers across the United States. It was not distributed outside of the United States.

DNA tests on bloody carpeting reveal identity of mystery victim
AUBURN, Wash. (KOMO) - The victim whose blood was found on flooring, carpeting and towels along an Auburn roadway two weeks ago has been identified through DNA tests as 30-year-old Brandon Zomalt, police said Friday.

The blood-drenched items were discovered Aug. 13 along Peasley Canyon Road on Wednesday afternoon by a federal agent who spotted a man trying to burn them. The man then fled the scene in a dark SUV and got away.

Cmdr. Mike Hirman of the Auburn police says the blood found on the flooring, carpeting, clothing and towels was fresh and indicates a probable homicide. But where that homicide was committed remains an elusive mystery so far.

"The body is somewhere," Hirman said Friday. "The fruits of the crime, if you will, were dumped here in Auburn. And so we need to find out who this person's associates are, we need to find where he was staying, where he was living and then we can go from there."

He said police received the results of the DNA testing on Wednesday but haven't been able to learn much about Zomalt, except that he listed his most recent address as Puyallup

"We have been searching, but we're not getting a lot of luck so that's why we thought we would release his picture and his name, with hopes of getting some calls from the public," Hirman said.

He said no one has reported Zomalt missing.

Records show that Zomalt has 11 arrests on his criminal record, for harassment, reckless driving, obstruction of a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest and negligent driving.

The police investigation into the mysterious case began Aug. 13 when a uniformed off-duty federal agent driving along Peasley Canyon Road in a marked Department of Homeland Security vehicle spotted smoke coming from a brushy area about 15 feet off the roadway.

The officer pulled over and walked toward the fire with an extinguisher, then spotted a man standing beside a dark SUV near the fire. When the man saw the federal agent, he jumped in the SUV and fled the scene. The agent attempted to follow the man but he got away.

When the officer returned to the smoky fire, he made a disturbing discovery - the man had been burning flooring material, carpeting, clothing and towels that were covered with blood.

Police cordoned off the area and closed the roadway for nearly 24 hours while they collected evidence at the scene. Blood samples were sent to the Washington State Patrol crime lab, and that's where the Zomalt was identified through DNA testing.

Hirman said Auburn police would like to hear from anyone who knows anything about Zomalt.

"Anybody who knows him, we'd like a call," he said. "Anybody who knows who he associates with or who knows where he was staying, we would sure like to know that, and we have a tip line of 253-288-7403 for anyone to call with information about Mr. Zomalt."

Prosecutors: Man knew dogs dangerous before attack
LANCASTER, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles County prosecutors say a 31-year-old man whose pit bulls mauled a jogger to death was not just negligent but knew that his animals could endanger someone's life.

The Los Angeles Times reported Friday (http://lat.ms/1vrP6Eo ) that in an unusual murder trial prosecutors presented evidence that Alex Jackson's dogs were involved in at least seven other altercations in the 18 months leading up to the May 9, 2013, attack on 63-year-old Pamela Devitt in the desert town of Littlerock.

The jury is in deliberations.

Vincent Jackson told the newspaper his brother has accepted some responsibility and wrote a letter to the victim's husband that was never sent.

But he says he thinks the murder charge is a knee-jerk reaction to people's disdain for pit bulls.

Devitt was bitten 200 times.

Man pleads guilty in Oregon woman's overdose death
SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A 35-year-old man has pleaded guilty in federal court in the heroin overdose death of a Keizer woman.

Laurin Putnam died in April 2012 at her home. The Salem Statesman Journal reports that in the days afterward, several people were arrested.

The U.S. Justice Department said Thursday that Sergio Quezada-Lopez was a high-level operative in the heroin distribution. It said he was in charge of a network of houses where drugs were stored in Portland and Vancouver, Washington, taking orders for heroin and directing its delivery.

The department said he pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy to distribute heroin that resulted in death. Sentencing is scheduled Dec. 1. The minimum is 20 years, the maximum life.

Competency check for teen accused in girl's death
PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) — Kitsap County prosecutors say a 17-year-old accused in the rape and killing of 6-year-old Jenise Wright will be evaluated next week to see if he's competent to stand trial.

The Kitsap Sun reports Gabriel Gaeta made a brief appearance in Kitsap County Superior Court on Thursday. At that hearing, Deputy Prosecutor Kelly Montgomery told Judge Jennifer Forbes that Gaeta will be evaluated by doctors Tuesday to determine if he understands the charges against him and can assist lawyers in his defense.

He has been held in the Kitsap County Juvenile Detention Center on $1 million bail since his arrest Aug. 9.

He's being held on investigation of first-degree murder and first-degree child rape. Once the competency evaluation is complete, prosecutors will make a decision on charging him.
