Carbon monoxide poisoning deemed likely cause of three deaths in one North Carolina hotel room – Alina Machado reports

FROM CNN WIRES:

For a time, it had the makings of a mountain mystery. Three deaths - first an elderly couple then, weeks later, an 11-year-old boy - in the same hotel room with the same immediate response from authorities: cause of death undetermined.

When the third death - that of a South Carolina youth visiting Boone with his mother - made news over the weekend in a Charlotte Observer story ("Mystery surrounds Boone motel deaths,") it brought on reader comments punctuated with words such as "terrifying," "bizarre," "really weird," "incredibly creepy."

Federal agents building case against Snowden while White House claims to welcome debate on elec. surveillance – Joe Johns reports

FROM CNN WIRES:

The White House said Monday it welcomes a debate over the electronic surveillance programs exposed by a National Security Agency contractor, even as federal agents began building a case against the self-proclaimed leaker.

Edward Snowden told the British newspaper the Guardian that he left behind his family and a six-figure job in Hawaii to reveal the extent of the NSA's collection of telephone and Internet data, which he called "an existential threat to democracy." The 29-year-old worked for computer consultant Booz Allen Hamilton, a contractor for the U.S. electronic intelligence agency.

Snowden said he expects to be prosecuted for the leak, and a federal law enforcement official said Monday that FBI agents have begun an investigation by searching the 29-year-old's home and computers and seeking interviews with his girlfriend, relatives, friends and co-workers.
