Finally, this hour, have you ever heard a story about homeless children that wasn't a grim, dark bummer?
(SOUNDBITE OF MOVIE, "INOCENTE")
INOCENTE: (as herself) My name is Inocente. I'm 15 years old, and I live in San Diego, California. I pretty much grew up homeless. I never really had something to call home.

But after several days, Katy had yet to receive the ashes.

The newest suspect is the king's son-in-law, who is accused of embezzling millions of dollars in public funds and faces a judge this weekend.
