Chase Martens Found Dead

It's a tragic end to the search for a missing Manitoba toddler.

An autopsy is scheduled today after searchers discovered the body of two-year-old Chase Martens, who vanished from his home in Austin on Tuesday.

The body was discovered in a creek yesterday afternoon.

Police say there are no obvious signs of foul play, and it appears the little boy just wandered away from home.

An autopsy on Martens will be conducted today.

 

Manitobans Nearly Hit by Brussels Attacks Back Home

A Manitoba taekwondo team that narrowly missed the terrorist attack at the Brussels airport is safely back on Canadian soil.

The group from TRP Academy was supposed to be at the airport at the time of the attack, but was running about ten minutes late.

Twelve-year-old Julianna Campos says the team wasn't really panicked, but "were kind of scared.''

After the attack, the team drove to the Netherlands and then Paris, and flew from there.

 

Ontario Man In Court for Weapons Charges

An Ontario man has appeared in court on weapons charges, but his lawyer says he's not sure whether he'll face terror charges as well.

Kevin Omar Mohamed was arrested yesterday under the fear of terrorism provision of the Criminal Code.

The seldom-used law allows police to arrest someone if they believe the person may commit a terrorist offence.

The only charges Mohamed currently faces are carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a dangerous weapon.

His lawyer says the Crown was unsure whether his client would be charged with anything terror-related as well.

 

No Lotto Winners

There's no rush to check your Lotto 6-49 ticket this morning -- you're not the big winner.

No winning ticket was sold for the five-million dollar jackpot in last night's draw.

That means the next grand prize draw on Wednesday will be worth seven-million.

The lotto's big prize was last handed out a week ago, when ticket holders in B-C and Ontario split a seven-million-dollar pot.

 

Catholics Celebrate Easter With Pope

Tens of thousands have gathered in St. Peter's Square to celebrate Easter Sunday Mass with Pope Francis.

The faithful had to endure tight security to be near Francis, as police were checking handbags and backpacks as people streamed toward the square.

Extremists have for years listed Rome and the Vatican as potential targets for attacks.

In two public appearances last week, Francis denounced those carrying out ``terrorist acts'' while profaning God's name.
