And in local (to me, sort of) news...
Court records show that Fairfax County Police are conducting a murder investigation to determine whether a Korean-American teenager died last year from injuries sustained in a religious ritual or exorcism.
Eighteen-year-old Rayoung Kim of Centreville died in July 2008 of blunt force trauma, according to medical examiners, and her death was ruled a homicide.
According to an affidavit, Kim's brother told police that family members had been performing a religious ritual on Kim in the minutes before she lost consciousness.
Kim's father said Thursday in a brief phone interview that police have their facts wrong and he does not understand why his family is under investigation. He declined to comment on whether an exorcism had been performed.
