((They thought it was over, but police now believe that lying beneath this yard of this northwest Chicago apartment complex may be another make-shift grave for victims of the nation's most notorious serial killer - John Wayne Gacy. In 1978, three days before Christmas, Chicago police unearthed Gacy's gruesome secret. One by one, the mangled and tortured bodies of 29 young men and boys, which he had buried in a crawlspace and back yard were carried out of his home. Four more were found near a river. JOE KOZENCZAK/ RETIRED DETECTIVE: I'M ON THE RECORD FOR YEARS WITH THE FBI TO THE FACT THAT GACY HAS KILLED OTHER PEOPLE IN OTHER STATES EVEN - AND THERE IS UNDOUBTEDLY MANY MANY MORE VICTIMS OUT THERE THAT WE MANY NEVER FIND. And now there may be new evidence to prove that theory. JOHN THOMAS, CHICAGO POLICE, I THINK WE'VE GOT ENOUGH TO LOOK AT RIGHT NOW. Police were prompted to scan the property near Gacy's mother's one time apartment after retired homicide detective Bill Dorsch recalled seeing Gacy with a shovel in a near-by alleyway back in 1975. Dorsch had his own scan done of the lawn and parking lot..These pictures show a ground disturbance buried 30 inches below the surface.. TERRY SULLIVAN, PROSECUTED GACY, IT COULD FILL IN A LOT OF THE TIMES THAT PEOPLE SAID THEIR KIDS NEW GACY AND THEIR BODIES WERE NEVER FOUND.
Gacy informally confessed to some 45 murders, but only 33 bodies were ever found. At the time of his execution in 1994 - Gacy refused to acknowledge the murders - now police want to know what other secrets he may have taken to his grave.))

A dispute within the Roanoke chapter of the N-Double A-C-P is now in the hands of state and national officials. And a ruling on the recent election for president could come within the next ten days.
In a close vote November 10th, Brenda Hale defeated current president Martin Jeffrey, but some people who intended to vote were turned away because their names were not on a membership list.
Jeffrey says the review is important to preserving the group's integrity and its external relationships.

A new watch will not only tell them the time, it will also monitor their sugar levels.
This would eliminate the current ritual where patients have to prick their fingers several times a day to draw blood.
The Glucowatch monitor may do away with all that because it automatically measures glucose levels every 20 minutes.

It even sounds an alarm when levels are too high or too low.
The Glucowatch is not on the market yet, but the makers hope to have it out as soon as testing is through.
