This is an amazing development, even if it comes out of an unspeakable tragedy.
Last week, we reported on the gruesome death of 40-year-old Ingrid Lyne, a nurse who was found murdered after meeting a man she met on a dating website.

Now, as police look into the suspect's background to determine whether or not he has more victims in his past, at least one sliver of good has emerged.
A GoFundMe page established to help Lyne's three daughters has raised more than $217,000 in just six days — and every cent of the money will go to a trust dedicated to the girls, aged 7, 10, and 12.
Melissa Koda, a friend of Lyne's Seattle-based family who launched the page, wrote of her decision to do so:

What unbelievably tragic news.
Pokémon Creative Design Director Eric Medalle was killed in a freak accident on Sunday when a tree was uprooted by a windstorm and landed on his car.
The 42-year-old was driving his toddler-aged daughter around in their SUV when the accident occurred, but fortunately she escaped with only minor injuries.

Eric worked with the Nintendo company since 2003 and was involved in eight different Pokémon projects, including X, Y, Black, White, and SoulSilver — so his presence will surely be missed.
He leaves behind his wife and two daughters, and our thoughts are with the rest of his family and friends at this difficult time.
Stay safe if you happen to be in the Pacific Northwest right now!

Well this is a little disappointing…
Justin Bieber kicked off his highly anticipated Purpose World Tour in Seattle Wednesday night, and while it was a sold out show, we're hearing the fans weren't exactly loving every minute of the concert.
That's because JB apparently lip synced his way through a large majority of the 20-song set!

Luckily for The Biebs, it doesn't seem like he was trying to trick fans into thinking he was singing live, because on songs like What Do You Mean? and Where Are Ü Now, the vocal is the EXACT same as the radio edit.
With that said, diehard Beliebers were quick to point out that Justin did actually perform his slower songs… we just don't think the new key for Love Yourself sounded very good at all.
Ch-ch-check out What Do You Mean?, Where Are Ü Now, and Love Yourself from Purpose (below)!!!

What an absolute tragedy.
Dozens of tourists were sightseeing in Seattle on Thursday morning when a freak accident caused a duck boat to crash into a tour bus killing four and critically injuring a further 44.
Witnesses say an amphibious vehicle was merging into the left lane on the Aurora Bridge at about 11 a.m., when a mechanical issue forced the boat into oncoming traffic, slamming into a bus carrying 45 international students.
In addition to the two large modes of transportation, another two cars were involved in the accident.
At least two of the deaths reportedly occurred on the bus, which fronted a large majority of the damage, while it's still unclear where the remaining fatalities took place.
We wish everyone injured a speedy recovery and our thoughts are with the friends and families of those who passed.
