    Brad Kaaya threw for 296 yards and led a 75-yard touchdown drive in the final minutes Saturday to help the Miami Hurricanes beat Virginia Tech 30-20.

    Kaaya also took the Hurricanes 89 yards in the final 42 seconds of the first half for the touchdown that put them ahead to stay.

    Miami's defense, which has struggled for much of the season, forced four turnovers and had three sacks. The Hurricanes allowed 160 yards rushing, but Tech's Brenden Motley threw two interceptions and lost a fumble, which led to 10 Miami points.

    The Hurricanes (4-2, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) bounced back from a loss a week earlier at Florida State and beat Virginia Tech (3-4, 1-2) for the second year in a row.

    After Tech scored a touchdown to cut Miami's lead to 23-20 midway through the fourth quarter, Kaaya led a nine-play drive and capped it by throwing a 2-yard touchdown pass to Rashawn Scott with 2:44 to go.

    Artie Burns then sealed the victory with his second interception of the game.

    With the score 13-all late in the first half, it appeared the Hurricanes were trying to run out the clock. But on third and 20 from the Miami 11, Virginia Tech jumped offsides, and Kaaya took advantage of the free play by hitting Herb Waters with a 45-yard completion.

    Five plays later, Kaaya threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Scott with four seconds left in the half for a 20-13 lead.

    Kaaya finished 19 for 30, and the Hurricanes had no turnovers.

    Motley went 14 for 23 for 136 yards. He was replaced midway through the second half by Michael Brewer, who played for the first time since he broke his left collarbone in Tech's season-opening loss to No. 1 Ohio State.

    Brewer threw a 33-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah Ford, but the Hurricanes answered with their final touchdown drive.

    Miami played the last 20 minutes without middle linebacker Raphael Kirby, who was carted to the locker room with a right knee injury.

    Hurricanes sophomore Michael Badgley made a career-long 49-yard field goal, and was also successful from 24 and 21 yards.

    Miami's victory should slightly ease pressure on coach Al Golden, with fan sentiment about him divided. Before the game, small planes flying over the stadium tugged banners that supported Golden and others called for his firing.

    SeaWorld says it wants to keep working with state officials.

    An animal rights group wants the Department of Education to break off their connection with the company. The state in late September briefly removed all references to SeaWorld from a website list of field trips and discounts available for teachers.

    But that decision was made without permission from Education Commissioner Pam Stewart. The state removed the deputy communications director who approved removing references to SeaWorld.

    In a statement SeaWorld said children have benefited from the company's partnership with the state. SeaWorld said it wants to continue its relationship with DOE to "inspire the next generation of Floridians to care for and preserve our natural world."

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is highly critical of SeaWorld for holding killer whales captive at its theme parks including one located in Orlando.

    The grainy black-and-white photograph shows a pointy iceberg in the middle of a calm sea, with puffy clouds barely visible in the sky. But the simple picture, taken more than a century ago, just may show the most infamous iceberg in history -- the one that sank the Titanic.

    It was taken by the chief steward of the ocean liner Prinz Adalbert on the morning of April 15, 1912, hours after the RMS Titanic sank following its collision with an iceberg the previous evening. The Titanic had sunk by the time the Prinz Adalbert came along, and the chief steward was unaware what had happened.

    The photo has been cited in historical accounts as possibly being of the iceberg the ship hit.

    What sets this photograph apart from others that purported to show the famous berg is a note the chief steward wrote to accompany the picture. In it, the steward says he saw red paint "plainly visible" on the iceberg that appeared to have been left by the scraping of a vessel.

    The Titanic was on its maiden voyage crossing the Atlantic when it hit the iceberg, carrying just over 2,200 passengers and crew, of whom 1,517 died.

    A telling note

    The photograph hung for decades on the walls of the law firm representing the Titanic's owners, White Star Line. The firm closed in 2002, and the four partners of the firm are now putting it up for auction, along with the note, according to the auction house.

    Both are being offered by Henry Aldridge & Son auctioneers in Devizes, Great Britain, with a presale estimate of 10-15,000 pounds ($15,400-$23,200). The auction is scheduled for Saturday, October 24.

    While impossible to verify, the contemporaneous account from the man who took the picture and the description of the paint he saw lend credibility to the idea that the Titanic's hull collided with the iceberg in the photograph.

    The note reads, "On the day after the sinking of the Titanic, the steamer Prinz Adalbert passes the iceberg shown in this photograph. The Titanic disaster was not yet known by us. On one side red paint was plainly visible, which has the appearance of having been made by the scraping of a vessel on the iceberg. SS Prinz Adalbert Hamburg America Line."

    It is then signed by the chief steward, who wrote his name only as M. Linoenewald, and three crewmen.

    Paint on an iceberg?

    Experts who study icebergs say it's certainly possible that red paint could have have been left on the iceberg from a passing ship.

    Steve Bruneau, a professor at the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada, and who studies icebergs, said paint could certainly be scraped off and crushed into the ice in such a collision. It could stay there a day or more if it was cool enough and out of the water, he said.

    Any observation of paint has to be made relatively soon after the accident, said Martin Truffer, a professor with the Glaciers Group at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

    When the Titanic struck the iceberg, Truffer said, the ice would have behaved like a rock and it would have been possible for paint to be left behind.

    The auction house said the firm representing the Titanic's owners, Burlingham, Montgomery & Beecher, acquired the 16-by-20-inch photograph not long after the sinking. Another client, Hamburg American Lines, sent the photograph to them when it learned the firm was defending the Titanic's owners in litigation over the sinking, the auction house said.

    Generations of Burlingham's maritime lawyers saw the photograph on the wall and regarded it as "The Titanic Iceberg." The photo was even used in the 1955 book "A Night to Remember," an account of the Titanic disaster, alongside the caption "The Iceberg that sank Titanic?"

    A professional fisherman has won a stone crab claw eating contest in the Florida Keys.

    Aaron Sutcliffe, 39, cracked and consumed 25 medium claws Saturday in 14 minutes and 20 seconds. He bested the record of the five-year contest staged at Keys Fisheries Restaurant by a minute.

    Even though it was the Marathon resident's first contest, Sutcliffe said he was accustomed to eating stone crab claws quickly, because while growing up that was the key to satisfying his appetite at the family dinner table.

    "In my family if you don't eat the stone crabs fast, you don't get anything," Sutcliffe told the Florida Keys News Bureau. "And I love the things. They're delicious."

    Sutcliffe said his secret weapon was using a butter knife versus a commercial cracker or mallet, according to the Florida Keys News Bureau.

    "You crack with this (handle) side and eat with this (blade) side," Sutcliffe said. "It's very efficient."

    Greg D'Agostino and Rick Palmer won the team division where stone crab aficionados shared cracking and eating duties. The Marathon residents finished in 8:50.

    Stone crabs are a renewable resource. Fishermen harvest legal-size claws and return the crab's body to the water to grow new extremities.

    Jeb Bush was all smiles as he prepared to introduce his wife, Columba Bush, Saturday night at a fundraiser to fight domestic violence at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables.

    "Columba has been my guiding light since the day I met her," Jeb Bush said.

    They were loving words for his wife, a long-time domestic violence advocate, but just hours earlier Jeb Bush took to Twitter with a tougher message for Republican rival Donald Trump, saying, "Trump's absurd comments raise questions on whether he possesses the judgment to be president."

    The tweet is linked to a video questioning Trump's foreign policy savvy.

    "Let me tell you I'm a really smart guy," Trump said.

    Trump's comments came during a television interview Friday.

    "When you talk about George Bush, say what you want. The World Trade Center came down during his time," Trump said in the interview.

    Jeb Bush quickly defended his brother on social media Friday, tweeting, "How pathetic for Donald Trump to criticize the president for 9/11. We were attacked and my brother kept us safe."

    Friday night, Trump ignored dozens of questions, asking him to explain his remarks.

    In Coral Gables Saturday night, Columba Bush had plenty to say about why she feels her husband could best help the country and gave a few reasons of her own.

    "His passion for helping others and his strong sense of loyalty to family and friends, and his good looks, of course," Columba Bush said.

    A passenger on a flight from New York City to South Florida has been arrested after authorities say he punched a flight attendant and threatened to blow up the plane.

    A flight attendant for JetBlue Airways told the FBI he saw Alija Kucuk, 29, run down the aisle and push two other flight attendants out of the way. The witness said he tried to calm Kucuk down but said Kucuk allegedly pushed him into a door and punched him in the face.

    According to an FBI report, Kucuk used verbal epithets and racial slurs and threatened to blow up the plane.

    Kucuk, of Middle Village in Queens, N.Y., was charged with interfering with a flight attendant and threatening to destroy an aircraft.

    The Sun Sentinel reports Kucuk has been appointed a federal public defender, but his attorney declined comment.

    Local 10 News is learning more about a couple who were found dead inside their Tavernier home.

    The Monroe County Sheriff's Office said Tara Rosado, 26, and Carlos Ortiz, 30, were found shot dead inside their house, discovered by Rosado's children, who are ages 3, 4 and 8.

    "I saw the kids running up and down the street in the rain," neighbor Travis Kvadus said.

    Kvadus told Local 10 News gunshots rang out late Thursday night. The next day, the children found the scene and tried to wake their mother up. They later ran out into the street to find help.

    "They said, 'Mommy and him are dead.' And I said, 'Are you sure they're not sleeping?' And they said, 'No, there's blood.' And I said, 'Well, let's go take a look,'" Kvadus said.

    Kvadus said he went in and found a grisly scene -- Rosado and Ortiz dead inside their bedroom. He said he took the kids to his house to keep them distracted before police arrived.

    "The 8-year-old is very smart. He knew what was up," Kvadus said.

    On Friday, detectives converged on the green house on Cuba Street.

    "Our crime scene techs will do their jobs as far as processing the scene," Maj. Chad Scibilia said. "I've got about four detectives out there tracking down leads, neighbors, things of that nature, follow up and we'll go from there."

    Records show Ortiz had a criminal past, including charges for armed robbery, marijuana trafficking and pot possession. It's unclear if any of that has to do with his death. The motive for the incident is still unknown.

    "We don't rule anything out," Scibilia said.

    Crime scene tape still surrounded the home Saturday. Neighbors were hoping Saturday night an arrest would be made soon. Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at 800-364-TIPS.

    Police say a shooting at the ZombiCon gathering in Florida killed one person and injured four others.

    Investigators say the person who was killed, 20-year-old Tyrell Taylor, is from South Florida.

    Lt. Victor Medico of the Fort Myers Police Department said the shootings began at 11:45 p.m. Saturday, The News-Press reported. He said police were searching for a suspect, and the four people hurt had injuries that were not life-threatening.

    No details were immediately available about the suspect.

    The annual festival had been expected to draw more than 20,000 fans dressed as zombies, the newspaper said. Medico said the scene was described as "shoulder to shoulder."

    A statement on the ZombiCon Facebook page said organizers were saddened by the news and the group takes the safety of its patrons very seriously.

    A man has been arrested in connection with three home burglaries that were reported Monday morning in Weston, Broward sheriff's deputies said.

    Matthew Hamilton was found by deputies crouching in brushes just minutes from the 600 block of Spinnaker, where the latest burglary was reported, authorities said.

    BSO spokeswoman Gina Carter said Hamilton broke into the home about 8 a.m. through a window while the people inside were sleeping.

    A burglary was also reported just before 5 a.m. at a home in the 500 block of Spinnaker, and before that a burglary was reported just before 3 a.m. at a home in the 16900 block of Royal Poinciana Drive. 

    Various electronic devices and jewelry were stolen from the homes. Carter said people were inside sleeping during each of the burglaries.

    Schools in the area were briefly placed on lockdown while deputies worked to capture the suspect.

    Hamilton has an arrest history involving burglaries and drugs that goes back to 2009. He was most recently arrested on September 27 on charges of burglary of an occupied dwelling, possession of burglary tools, grand theft, resisting without violence and loitering.

    Hamilton now faces charges of burglary of an occupied dwelling and loitering.

    An unsuspecting employee at a massage parlor in Margate was arrested last week after she gave an undercover detective a "happy ending," police said.

    Jinping Yang, 52, was arrested Wednesday on charges of lewd and lascivious actions and working without a masseuse license.

    According to an arrest report, police were tipped off about prostitution at the Asian Massage Parlor on Royal Palm Boulevard in Margate.

    An undercover detective, who was equipped with an audio listening/recording device, paid $45 for a half-hour massage.

    Police said Yang massaged the detective's back for about 20 minutes before telling him to turn over onto his back. Police said Yang told the detective that he had 10 minutes left and said she could massage his chest and pointed to his groin area.

    According to the report, the detective agreed to pay Yang an additional $50 for manual masturbation.

    Police said Yang started to rub the detective's penis with lotion, at which time he gave the "verbal takedown signal" for officers to come in.

    Yang was arrested and taken to the Broward County Jail.

    An employee at The Knife Steak House in Bayside Marketplace was arrested after he recorded a child inside the men's bathroom of the restaurant, police said.

    Eduardo Zenon Sanchez, 43, was arrested Friday on a charge of video voyeurism involving a child under the age of 16.

    According to an arrest report, the victim was with his family at the restaurant when he left the table to use the restroom.

    Police said the boy heard someone enter the stall next to him and then saw a hand holding a white cellphone over the stall, pointing in his direction.

    Police said the boy screamed and told Sanchez that he was calling the police.

    According to the report, Sanchez tried to open the stall that the boy was in but then ran off.

    The boy noticed that Sanchez was wearing Sketchers shoes and black pants and called his father while he was still in the stall, police said. The boy's father immediately went to the bathroom, and the boy pointed out Sanchez to his father.

    Police said a struggle ensued between the father and Sanchez for the phone, which was taken by the restaurant's manager and turned over to police.

    Detectives said video of the boy sitting on the toilet was found on Sanchez's phone.

    Police said Sanchez admitted to taking the video because of "curiosity," and said he had planned to delete the video. Detectives said Sanchez also told them that he zoomed in to take a closer look at the child's genitals.

    Police continue searching for the person who fatally shot a South Florida college student over the weekend at the ZombiCon gathering in Fort Myers.

    "(I) just tried to figure out what words could I say to this family. We wanted to be there as a football team, be there as a college," ASA head football coach Ernest Jones said.

    The victim, Expavious Tyrell Taylor, 20, played on the offensive line at ASA College in North Miami Beach. Jones gave his team the day off Monday and said they plan to dedicate their next game in Taylor's honor.

    "He was always smiling," Jones said. "Whenever times were rough or hard, he was the guy who could bring us up with his energy. He is a competitive football player."

    Police said the shooting, which was reported about 11:45 p.m. Saturday, left five others injured and caused a chaotic scene that sent throngs of zombie-dressed revelers running through the streets.

    Taylor's family is hoping witnesses come forward to help police find the shooter.

    "The girl was screaming in the phone saying he got shot," Taylor's sister, Amanda Andrews, said.

    Police said the shooting happened just 15 minutes before the event was officially ending. However, large crowds were still in the streets and authorities quickly cleared out nearby bars and set up crime scene tape, while others patrolled the area with rifles searching for a suspect.

    Four people were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries and one person refused medical attention.

    Police have not released a possible motive.

    Police are investigating two shootings in Miami-Dade County that left two teenagers dead over the weekend.

    Students at South Dade Senior High School were mourning the loss of one of the victims Monday morning.

    "I was crying most of last night. I couldn't believe it," high school senior Iziyah Cefre said.

    One shooting was reported just before 6:30 p.m. Sunday near 14121 SW 280th Street in Homestead. Police said shots were fired from inside of a car, striking two 16-year-olds.

    Both were taken to Kendall Regional Trauma Center, where one was pronounced dead and the other is listed in critical condition.

    Family members said the boy who was killed, identified as Rahkeem Brown, played football at South Dade Senior High School. The second teen was identified by police as Tyvontae Robinson.

    "When I found out, I was just shocked," Cefre said. "I couldn't do anything."

    Witnesses said a dark-colored car pulled up alongside the teens and someone from inside started shooting.

    People in the community believe the shooting may have been retaliation for a shooting that happened Saturday in Florida City, which left another teenager dead and two others injured.

    "There's always the possibility that these two incidents are involved. Again, physical evidence is the only thing that's going to tie these things together or statements from subjects. So we have to let that investigation takes its course and this one as well," Miami-Dade police spokesman Alvaro Zabaleta said.

    Police said the three teens in Florida City were ambushed by people inside a car while they were sitting in a red Nissan Sentra.

    The driver of the Nissan, Noricia Talabert, 17, sped away and crashed into a large tree, police said. 

    Talabert was pronounced dead at the scene. Deanna Clayton, 17, and Daquantay Allen, 17, were injured in the shooting.

    Anyone with information about the shootings is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
