Following an emotional re-union in the Central Virginia town of Crewe last night, Jenni Northrup came back to the spot where she says she was abducted.

Health officials say Virginia may have its first West Nile death of the year.
A spokesman for the Central Shenandoah Health District says that a 79-year-old Augusta County resident who died this week almost certainly was a victim of the mosquito-borne illness.
Final confirmation will come after test results return from the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, but he says he's 99 percent sure it was West Nile.
The victim, who was NOT identified, was ill for about a week.
The state has had ten suspected human cases of the disease this year.

Talk Show host Rush Limbaugh may be under investigation for allegedly abusing prescription painkillers.
Authorities have apparently been looking into a black market for drugs in Florida- the investigation is targeting sellers and suppliers not buyers and Limbaugh is not the target of the investigation.

However, sources tell reporters that Limbaugh purchased drugs from a former housekeeper. She apparently secretly recorded phone conversations with Limbaugh and provided these tapes to investigators.
Limbaugh responded saying quote: I am unaware of any investigation by any authorities involving me. No governmental representative has contacted me directly or indirectly. If my assistance is required in the future I will of course cooperate fully.

Meanwhile today Limbaugh was dealing with a comment he made last Sunday. He today announced he's quitting his TV job at ESPN.. he says to protect the network.
The resignation comes just days after he said the media was hyping Quarterback Donovan McNabb's success only because they want to see a black quarterback succeed.
