The lawyer for a man who is charged with abducting University of Virginia student Hannah Graham and allegedly is linked to Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington, who disappeared from Charlottesville in 2009, said Tuesday that authorities have the evidence under seal.
Washington (AFP) - A man who was diagnosed with the Ebola virus in Texas came in contact with young children, and experts are monitoring them for any signs of disease, governor Rick Perry said Wednesday.
"Today we learned that some school-aged children have been identified as having had contact with the patient and are now being monitored at home for any signs of the disease," Perry said at a news conference.
"I know that parents are being extremely concerned about that development," he added.

The patient sought treatment six days after arriving in Texas on Sept. 20, Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), told reporters on Tuesday. He was admitted two days later to an isolation room at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.
U.S. health officials and lawmakers have been bracing for the eventuality that a patient would arrive on U.S. shores undetected, testing the preparedness of the nation's healthcare system.
Frieden said a handful of people, mostly family members, may have been exposed to the patient after he fell ill. He said there was likely no threat to any passengers who had traveled with the patient. Asked whether the patient was a U.S. citizen, Frieden described the person as a visitor to family in the country.

But unlike his neighbors in the field, the inside of this man's skull bore the imprints of his brain vessels, with "exquisite anatomical details," for centuries. The prints were cast into the layer of the preservative substances used during the mummification process to coat the inside of the skull.
The imprints appear to have been made by the blood vessels within the meninges, which is the membrane that covers the brain, the researchers said.
The station said the sources did not detail the forensic evidence, but said it showed that Harrington had contact with Matthew the night she disappeared outside the University of Virginia's basketball arena in Charlottesville in October 2009.
