WYATT MIVILLE, BABY WITH RARE CONGENITAL TRISMUS, CAN'T OPEN HIS MOUTH

  • A nine-month-old baby in Ottawa is unable to open his mouth due to a rare condition and doctors don’t have any case history to help treat him.

  • Wyatt Miville has congenital trismus, an extremely rare disorder that prevents the young boy from opening his jaw.

  • Doctors at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) said the condition has its ripple effects that kept Wyatt there for nearly the first three months of his life and have sent him back for many emergency room visits.

  • Wyatt's parents said their son's condition is so rare that CHEO has no case study to look at to help determine a treatment.

  • "Nobody can tell us if Wyatt is going to be better in two years, five years, 10 years or if he will be eating from a tube the rest of his life," Amy Miville said.

  • His parents said they've launched a website, called "What's Wrong with Wyatt," in hopes other parents of children with congenital trismus or doctors will reach out

MATTHEW DE GROOD, CALGARY STABBING SUSPECT, BEING HELD AT PSYCHIATRIC CENTRE

  • Matthew de Grood is now being held in a secure psychiatric facility after being accused of stabbing five young adults to death at a Calgary house party.

  • Police Chief Rick Hanson told CBC News that the 22-year-old is expected to undergo a psychological assessment, which has to be court ordered but is common in high-profile homicide cases.

  • De Grood has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder in the slayings of four men and a woman at a house in Brentwood in the city’s northwest

  • De Grood’s father is a veteran officer with the rank of inspector in the Calgary Police Service, a fact that is making an already emotional case that much more difficult for investigators, Hanson said..

  • According to neighbours, people at a house had been celebrating the last day of university classes with a fire in the backyard. 

  • Bermuda Shorts Day (BSD) festivities to mark the end of the University of Calgary’s winter semester have been a campus tradition since 1960.

  • Susan Anderson, editor of the student newspaper the Gauntlet, says there is usually a lot of drinking on BSD, but the day has always been a positive part of university life.

Matthew de Grood is shown in this image from a Calgary 10-kilometre race in 2013.

  • The popularity of the relatively affordable yet powerful Mustang in the U.S. spread around the world, inspiring other automakers to build similar 'pony cars.‘

  • The original 1964-65 Mustang was available in both hardtop and convertible versions

  • http://www.cbsnews.com/news/passage-50th-anniversary-of-the-mustang/
