The Biological Sciences Greenhouse at OSU has been fortunate to have multiple bloomings of the Titan Arum, aka, the corpse flower. They have its smaller but also smelly cousin, the Voodoo Lily. From its bruise-colored bloom that resembles a corpse, to its stench of rotting flesh, this tropical flower masks its beauty to attract its pollinators.
Ohio Craigslist Suspect’s Mom Says He’s Innocent
The mother of a 16-year-old Ohio boy charged with attempted murder in a Craigslist ad investigation says he’s innocent and is cooperating with authorities.
Authorities say victims were lured into a deadly robbery scheme by a false job ad for a farm hand. At least two men are dead and one wounded. One other body may be connected to the case.
The teen suspect’s mother said in a phone interview Monday that her son “is not a monster.” She says he has been warned he will face trial as an adult and could face more than 40 years in prison.
A man described as a mentor to her son is also a suspect and is in jail in Akron on unrelated charges.
