Morning Juice: Feds Turn Tables on Nigerian Scammer; Tropical Storm Brewing Near Bermuda

Here's what's happening in Broward and Palm Beach this morning:

  • A nonprofit environmental firm says that the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the gulf is similar to the one that occurred more than 30 years ago in Mexico's Bay of Cempeche. Those experts have faith that advances in technology will make it possible to limit the spill's effect on fragile ecosystems and tourist industries. [Miami Herald]
  • A psychologist on NBC's Today Show says that 15-year-old Wayne Treacy suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder following the suicide of his older brother. Also, it's been revealed that his victim, 15-year-old Josie Lou Ratley, sent a text message that said, "go visit ur dead brother" in the hours before the March 17 attack. [Sun-Sentinel]
  • The West Palm airport was the site of a recent U.S. Immigration sting against a Nigerian email scammer who hoped to collect what was left from what he thought was a terminally ill old man. [Palm Beach Post]

  • An elderly couple was killed this weekend in Boca Raton when a young woman lost control of her SUV, which launched into the air and landed on top of the couple's Cadillac. [WPTV]
  • It's that time of year again. A low-pressure system 500 miles southwest of Bermuda has the potential to kick off the tropical storm season. [Sun-Sentinel]
