Richard and Mayumi Heene leave the Larimer County Sheriff's Office Saturday.

"We do anticipate at some point in the future, there will be some criminal charges filed with regards to this incident," Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden said.
The saga captured the nation's attention early Thursday afternoon, after authorities reported the family's homemade helium balloon was set adrift, apparently with young Falcon Heene inside.
Since then, speculation has mounted over whether the incident was a hoax by the father, who has appeared with his family on ABC's "Wife Swap," and posted videos of storm chasing and other activities online.
Earlier Saturday, in an impromptu press conference outside his home, Heene told reporters the runaway balloon incident was "absolutely no hoax."
The incident prompted a widespread search in northern Colorado that included law enforcement from several counties, the Federal Aviation Administration and the Colorado National Guard.
It ended when Falcon climbed down from the attic above the garage at the family's Fort Collins, Colorado, home.

Wyatt Thomas Smitsky, 4, who had a congenital heart defect requiring medication, disappeared while playing outside his home in the 600 block of Georgetown Road in Greene Township early Friday evening.
The body of Wyatt Thomas Smitsky, 4, who has a congenital heart defect, is found in a septic tank at a neighbor's house. His Sunday school teacher remembers him as a "sweet kid" who "liked to play games, snack time."
After extensive search efforts by hundreds of volunteers and officials, hazardous materials crews discovered Wyatt's body in a neighbor's septic tank. Those same searchers gathered Sunday night in seek of closure, as state police continued to investigating, saying they have reason to believe that this was not an accident.
"It is a homicide investigation. We believe he could not have gotten into that septic tank without being put there. The cover is too big for a 4-year-old boy," state police Lt. Thomas Dubovi said. "He could not have removed that heavy lid that goes on that septic tank by himself."
State police withheld filing charges until the coroner could complete an autopsy Sunday morning. No charges were filed as of Sunday afternoon.
Beaver County Coroner Teri Tatalovich-Rossi told WTAE Channel 4's Ashlie Hardway early Sunday afternoon that more tests were pending to determine a cause and manner of death. Tatalovich-Rossi did not estimate how long that would take to complete.
"We believe he could not have gotten into that septic tank without being put there. He could not have removed that heavy lid that goes on that septic tank by himself."

"We just really don't know. We still have work to do, and we're working on it," Tatalovich-Rossi told WTAE Channel 4's news-exchange partner at The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review after the autopsy.
State police said the lid to the septic system appeared tampered with, and, somehow, the lid was back in place after the boy's body was inside. Included in the search area was the lid to the septic tank.

A relative told WTAE Channel 4's Bob Mayo on Saturday morning that Wyatt had been outside playing with his 3-year-old and 6-year-old sisters. When the children's mother called them in for dinner, the girls came home, but Wyatt did not. The relative said the girls told their mother that Wyatt went under a "sticky fence."
Wyatt's mother, Terry, left state police barracks at about 4 p.m., and the boy's father, John Jr., was held longer. Speaking Saturday afternoon, attorney Joseph Horowitz, representing John Smitsky Jr., shed new light on his client's defense.
"As far as he's concerned, it was an accident," Horowitz said. "He's overwhelmed. As you imagine, he says he had nothing to do with it, and he's been in custody, and his son died. It's a terrible day for him."
Hardway reported she saw the Smitskys at a neighbor's home later Saturday evening. When Hardway met with the family's attorney, Giuseppe Rosselli, he said the police questioning didn't help the family's grieving process.
"It wasn't ideal, but now they're back with family. They've been able to hold each other, talk with each other, grieve together. So, it's a much better process right now," Rosselli said

August is usually a sleepy month at the box office, with studios ending the summer season with films that aren't exactly blockbuster material. But this year has been a different story. Earnings are up 12 percent from last year, and the critically acclaimed "District 9" took the top spot at the box office. Relying largely on viral marketing, Comic-Con buzz and good reviews, Sony's sci-fi flick outperformed the studio's wildest expectations and brought in $37 million. The R-rated thriller has turned out to be a Cinderella story for producer Peter Jackson and its director, newcomer Neill Blomkamp. After their "Halo" project fell apart, the pair teamed up to remake Blomkamp's short film "Alive in Joburg" with a $30 million budget. With "District 9" sitting at #1, it's doubtful there are any "Halo" regrets for the filmmakers or the fans.

Yemeni plane crashes in Comoros - An airliner with 150 people on board belonging to Yemeni state carrier Yemenia Air crashed in the Indian Ocean archipelago of Comoros on Tuesday, a senior government official said.
"We don't know if there are any survivors among the 150 people on the plane," Comoros vice-president Idi Nadhoim told Reuters from the airport at the main island's capital Moroni.
Nadhoim said the accident happened in the early hours of Tuesday, but could not give any more details.
The location was not immediately known, but a medical worker in the town of Mitsamiouli, on the main island Grande Comore, said he had been called into the local hospital.
"They have just called me to come to the hospital. They said a plane had crashed," he told Reuters.
A Comoran police source said the plane was believed to have come down in the sea. "We really have no sea rescue capabilities," he added.

An 'Evening' to remember
Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger -- who put his US Airways jetliner down on the Hudson minutes after both engines failed, and who walked the length of the drifting Airbus A320 twice to make certain that all 155 people on board got off safely -- was greeted by several thousand cheering people gathered around the town square in Danville, California, for a celebration in his honor.
Mayor Newell Arnerich presented Sullenberger with a ceremonial key to the city, an upscale suburb near San Francisco. Sullenberger, who has avoided public comment since the January 15 incident, made very brief remarks.
He thanked the crowd for an "incredible outpouring of support."

...who's around here somewhere...
...I have come here tonight not only to address the distinguished men and women in this great chamber, but to speak frankly and directly to the men and women who sent us here.
I know that for many Americans watching right now, the state of our economy is a concern that rises above all others, and rightly so. If you haven't been personally affected by this recession, you probably know someone who has: a friend, a neighbor, a member of your family.
