    Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway worked with a man, who is now facing federal prison time, in attempts to purchase property for a school bus agency that is now the focus of an ongoing federal corruption investigation, according to records obtained by NBC 5 Investigates. Those records include emails that contradict what Caraway said in an interview in January, when he denied knowing of any business deals between Slater Swartwood Sr. and the beleaguered Dallas County Schools agency, which voters have elected to shut down. In that interview, Caraway also said he knew of no business ties between Swartwood and...

    Wysocki said she made hundreds of calls to local police in an attempt to get them to reopen the case to no avail. "I’m a little obsessive when people don’t return a phone call,” she said. "I’m the type where if you don’t return a call, I’m going to start calling even more. I started calling more and more and more. And I kept getting blown off each time." 2005, she took matters into her own hands. “At that point I thought, 'OK, now I’m going to become a private investigator. Then you’ll take me seriously,'" Her persistence paid off...

    Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway on Monday urged the National Rifle Association to move its upcoming annual convention elsewhere in light of last week’s mass school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Mr. Caraway, who represents District 4 on the Dallas City Council, told reporters Monday that the NRA would be “met with opposition” if it continues with its annual meeting of members event, scheduled for May 3-6 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. “There will be marches and demonstrations should they come to Dallas,” Mr. Caraway said, local ABC affiliate WFAA reported.

    On Monday Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway (D) cited the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy and demanded that the NRA cancel its upcoming convention. The convention is scheduled to take place in the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. Mayor Pro Tem Caraway spoke Monday about the scheduled NRA convention. Fox 4 reported that he framed his demand that the NRA pull out by pointing to JFK’s assassination, then pivoting to the July 7, 2016, fatal ambush of five Dallas police officers, the Florida school shooting, and November 2017 murder of a 27-year-old mother of six in the...

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Missing since Friday, former Dallas Cowboys running back Lincoln Coleman was found safe on Tuesday morning, according to Dallas Police.

He said Coleman could not figure out where he left his car or how to get home. Randolph said on Tuesday at about 4 a.m., Coleman returned home but was confused about what happened. “We were worried about him freezing....

    DALLAS - If you can’t win big, go small. That’s the strategy gaining momentum among criminal justice reformers in the age of Trump, as the federal government hardens its approach to law enforcement. Instead of pouring money and energy into squeezing change out of Washington, national civil rights organizations are teaming with local groups to push their agendas in county-level district attorney races, where a few thousand votes can determine who asserts the most influence over the local justice system. Picking their targets carefully, and crunching election data to influence pivotal voter blocs - and benefiting from the largesse of...

    Steven Kurtz with the Dallas County medical examiner’s office said Sherin Mathews was a victim of homicide but that he couldn’t provide any other details from the autopsy at this point. The Texas attorney general’s office must decide whether the full report can be released to the public, he said. Mathews said he had been trying to get the girl to drink milk in the garage of their home, according to an arrest affidavit filed by Richardson police. “Eventually the 3-year-old girl began to drink the milk. Wesley Mathews then physically assisted the 3-year-old girl in drinking the milk,” according...

    WASHINGTON - The head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement wants the Justice Department to prosecute mayors and other political leaders in so-called "sanctuary cities" that limit cooperation with federal immigration authorities. "We need to hold these politicians accountable for their actions," Thomas Homan told Fox News. "This isn't the America I grew up in. We got to take these sanctuary cities on. We got to take them to court. And we got to start charging some of these politicians with crimes." Such a policy would dramatically raise the stakes for immigrant-friendly cities and states that have clashed with the administration....

    Facebook filled up late Friday and early Saturday with videos of a hacked street sign along eastbound Lemmon Avenue near northbound North Central Expressway with less than kind words for President Donald Trump — or, to be more specific, "Turmp" — and his supporters. Most of the sign's content doesn't pass muster in a family newspaper — or a fourth-grade writing assignment.

    People forgot the asterisk. Or maybe they never noticed it in the first place. The consequences of that oversight took full form about a week ago, and the result is that the prospects for several major highway projects in Central Texas and the state’s other urban centers are now uncertain. Back during the 2013 legislative session, when Texas Department of Transportation officials and their lawmaker allies began pushing for more money through a constitutional amendment, they said that TxDOT needed an extra $5 billion a year to fight traffic congestion. Just give us that much money and all will be...

    Mention “tech cities,” and what might comes to mind are Silicon Valley, Chicago, Seattle, New York City, or Austin. But, Dallas-Fort Worth is emerging as a tech market, according to two new reports. “People have thought of Austin as Silicon Prairie for a long time,” said Ali Greenwood, vice president of data center solutions with commercial real estate firm JLL. This is logical, given that Dell, Apple, and Oracle have a presence there as do many technology startups. However, Greenwood said the sheer volume of Fortune 500 companies in DFW has attracted tech and other companies from elsewhere. Because of...

    Nearly 48 years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, fresh audio evidence from that fateful day has surfaced. The evidence comes in the form of the original reel-to-reel Air Force One radio recording, containing conversations between officials on the plane, the White House situation room, and others. The original tape was long thought to be lost or destroyed. The tape contains never-before-heard conversations between the presidential aircraft and the White House and immediately after the assassination of President Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963. It was held privately for years by President Kennedy’s military aide at the time, Chester...

    This might not be how it was supposed to go. After a tumultuous year of protests, sinking ratings and ticket sales for the NFL, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was prepared to act. Last week, news that Jones had threatened to sue NFL commission Roger Goodell rocked the political and sports world. Jones had been extremely critical over many of Goodell’s decisions, and was vocal over this mishandling of the players’ protests during the national anthem. Jones decided to put his money where his mouth is, and hired an attorney in an attempt to stop negotiations for Goodell’s lucrative contract...
