Claims that Amazon is taking advantage of the Postal Service have not passed muster with fact checkers. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., a member of the House Oversight Committee, said in a statement to USA TODAY.

Jill Blackstone was arrested on suspicion of murder two days after her sister's body was found, but she was released when prosecutors declined to file charges, asking police to conduct further investigation. It wasn't immediately clear if she has an attorney. She was listed as an executive producer on 105 episodes of Family Court with Judge Penny, and was also listed as an executive producer on shows including Pat Croce Moving In, The Tony Danza Show, Divorce Court, and Jerry Springer.

She is expected to be transferred to Los Angeles to face charges.

At first it appeared that Wendy - who was deaf and partially blind - had killed herself, but now police believe that Jill assisted her sister, according to TMZ. It is also believed that there may have been a suicide pact that Jill had backed out of, leaving the enclosed garage before she, too, succumbed to the carbon monoxide being emitted from the grill. We were told they were investigating a double suicide, an attempt, and one of the people died.

Police are trying to extradite Blackstone to Los Angeles from Baltimore.
