The good news is that a missing boy, who vanished 11 years ago, has finally been found alive. The bad news is that he now faces serious charges for allegedly shooting his kidnapper, his own father, to death.
“After 11 years of waiting to hear if my brother was still alive, he is found,” sister Natasha Templet told WAFB 9 in Baton Rouge.“He has been secluded and abused all these years by his own father. My brave brother had to defend himself for the last time against that evil man.”
Anthony Templet vanished from his Houston, Texas home at age 5. His dad Burt Templet was always thought to be the abductor, according to the family. They showed WAFB “missing boy” fliers that they posted around Houston at the time of the disappearance. It displays photos of both father and son.
“He snatched him from our home,” Natasha told WAFB9.

A Utah girl is finally going home after spending the first three years of her life in a hospital in Ohio.
Zariah Donovan was born prematurely at just 23 weeks, six days gestation in September 2015.
During her time in the NICU, she developed such a serious lung disease that doctors told her parents, Shawn Donovan and Vilayvone Thipsouvan, that she had a zero percent chance of survival.
Zariah was took weak to go home and no medical center near the family could provide the care that she needed.
The family learned of a specialized program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital – 1,700 miles away – and agreed to admit her.
After years spent in physical, occupational and speech therapy, Zariah’s lungs finally grew strong enough and she was cleared to go home.

In 2017, Mystery Science Theater 3000 returned to television thanks to Netflix and a crowdfunding campaign that raised almost $5.8 million. The reboot brought Joel Hodgson back to the weirdly wonderful show he created in 1988, and appeared on until 1993, in which a human stranded in space and his robot companions watch and make fun of really bad movies.
Now, to mark the show’s 30th anniversary, six new episodes will hit the streaming service on Thanksgiving, so fans can binge on movies that were turkeys after filling themselves with actual turkey.
From ‘Will Grace’ to ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’.
But that’s not all Hodgson has been up to. This fall, he and new MST3K star Jonah Ray joined forces for a series of live shows around the U.S., and Hodgson

Twenty-five years ago this month, the world met Fox Mulder (David Duchovny), the brilliant and “spooky” FBI agent who not only catalogued but “wanted to believe” in paranormal phenomena, and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), the doctor-turned-agent whose skepticism the Bureau entrusted to keep Mulder in check.
The X-Files debuted on September 10, 1993, to decent ratings and favorable reviews. But the sci-fi drama quickly became a hit, eventually spawning two big-screen movies and two revival seasons.

Read on for the seven most ’90s things about the X-Files pilot.
