((One of the FBI's ten most wanted, on the run for nearly two years -- James Kopp has finally been caught, in France. He's wanted for the 1998 murder of abortion provider Dr. Barnett Slepian.
Dr. Slepian ran a prominent abortion clinic in Buffalo, New York, when he was shot and killed by a sniper at his home. The doctor is remembered as an outspoken advocate for a woman's right to choose abortion. He was a frequent target of anti-abortion-rights demonstrators.
At the time of his shooting there were only 3 acknowledged abortion providers left in the Buffalo area. One of those quit after Slepian's murder.
The Slepian shooting was the fifth such sniper attack in the northeast region, since 1994, but the first one to prove fatal. Investigators were able to build their case against Kopp, with the discovery of a scope-equipped rifle buried near the Slepian home. They also found a strand of hair, linked to Kopp through DNA testing, near where the sniper fired. Dr. Slepian knew the danger he faced. Four years before his murder, he'd said, nothing can be done "about a single fanatic out there, who's got a long-range rifle." Except now, perhaps that killer will be brought to justice.

Welcome everybody to the Thursday ticker that once again begins with news concerning Dale Earnhardt and the battle over his autopsy photos.
[GRAPHIC=DALE OBIT]

Ever since Earnhardt died at Daytona last month, several groups have sought access to his autopsy photos. Such photos have been open public records as Florida's widespread "Sunshine Law." However, Earnhardt's widow has fought the release of the photos and urged fans of her late husband to help her in her fight.

[SUPER=03-Tallahassee, FL; :00]

Their persistence paid off today as the Florida state senate voted 40 to nothing to close the autopsy photos. The bill already was passed by the house last week, and Florida Governor Jeb Bush signed it today at 3:30 with Teresa Earnhardt by his side. The bill was passed in record time - something Governor Bush said was tribute to Earnhardt's speed. However, attorneys for a number of news organizations plan to fight the bill saying it is difficult to enforce and apply to every case.
