Quickly confusing a cashier into giving a thief too much cash is called quick changing and it's happening again in the Ozarks. It's an old trick that causes a worker to give someone more change than they deserve. Gas station clerk Lashara Luttrull says she's not naïve -- but she still got conned. She says a scammer fooled her once now she wants to warn others about quick change confusion. "For the life of me I can't think of when I handed him the other $50," Luttrull said, recalling the day she was tricked.

New research says pedophiles may be born with the urge to have sex with children, and it's already controversial.   Wednesday, in a special report, we hear from people who believe it and those who don't.   Some of this new theory about pedophilia comes from studies on convicted sex offenders.  It was done at the Criminal Center for Mental Health and Addiction in Toronto.   Here are just a few things they found: a large number of pedophiles are left-handed, at least an inch shorter than normal, about ten IQ points below average, and have less white matter in their brains.  Some scientists say those are all biological so pedophilia likely is as well.  Not everyone buys that though, even an actual sex offender.

The United States Supreme Court ruled Monday that sex offenders convicted before 2006 may not have to register if they move across state lines. In the 7-2 ruling, Justices said rules requiring sex offenders to update their registration when crossing state lines don't automatically apply to those who committed their crimes before the law was passed. The law, the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, also known as the Adam Walsh act, created a national sex offender registry.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The wild cat population is becoming a big problem in Springfield city limits. This is the time of year when more kittens are born, so feral cat colonies are growing, but Springfield Animal Control officials say it's getting out of control. "16 wild cats today," says Shelter Manager Heather Ferrier. That isn't the number of cats brought into Springfield Animal Control Wednesday, that's the number that was put down. "If we get a feral cat at the shelter its only outcome would be to be euthanized," explains Ferrier.
