7 things to know now: 'Day without Immigrants'; teen hikers murdered; 'Love Actually' reunion

Here's a roundup of news trending across the nation and world today.

What to know now:

1. Boycott set: Immigrants across the country are expected to take part in “A Day Without Immigrants,” Thursday. The event is meant to show the country the impact of immigrant dollars on the U.S. economy. Boycotts of work, shopping and even schools are set for several American cities.

2. Puzder withdraws: Andrew Puzder, President Donald Trump's nominee for secretary of labor, withdrew himself Wednesday from consideration for the job. It became clear in recent days that Puzder would not have the backing of enough Republican senators to be confirmed. Earlier this month, Puzder admitted that for years he had employed an undocumented worker. His ex-wife had also accused him of domestic abuse, though she withdrew those statements later.

3. Teens murdered: Two teenage girls were found dead Tuesday after they went missing while on a hike in Indiana. The bodies of Liberty Rose Lynn German, 14, and Abigail Jay Williams, 13, were found about three-quarters of a mile from the place they were dropped off to go hiking. Authorities say they are treating the deaths as homicides.

4. Three arrested in Kim’s death: Three people – two women and a man – are under arrest in the death of Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of Kim Jong Un, the leader of North Korea. Kim Jong Nam was reportedly poisoned in an airport in Kuala Lumpur when a woman came up to him and put a cloth over his face as he waited for a flight.

5. An American boy: The American Girl company unveils a new doll to the line each year, and this year they are going in a different direction. They are adding a doll, but instead of being an American Girl, the new doll is an American boy. Logan Everett will become the first male doll in the franchise. In the American Girl world, Logan is a drummer who performs with country singer Tenney Grant.

  • The exact motive remains unclear, but the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is announcing an arrest, following a deadly shooting over the weekend. According to JSO, Steven Grady, 25, and two other people were all traveling together through Jacksonville to North Carolina, on their way back from Orlando.  As they were driving on I-95, near Union Street, police say the passenger in the front seat, Tyrell Brown, 32, woke up from a nap and without warning, pulled out a gun and shot Grady in the head.  The person in the backseat was eventually able to get control of their car, but they did hit several objects, before coming to a stop.  When police arrived, they say Brown resisted violently and had to be subdued. He was then taken to the hospital for his own safety.  JSO says there wasn't any fight between Brown and Grady, prior to the shooting, but it's believed there was some drug use involved.  Brown is now charged with murder.
  • Charles Manson, the notorious cult leader who led followers to murder several people in the 1960s, is dead, the California Department of Corrections said late Sunday. The 83-year-old died of “natural causes,” according to a CDCR news release. >> Click here to read the statement from the California Department of Corrections >> Charles Manson death: Notable reactions on social media TMZ reported Wednesday that Manson’s health had been deteriorating steadily. He was transported with five uniformed cops to a hospital in Bakersfield, California, three days earlier, the site said. >> Read more trending news The convicted mass murderer was imprisoned at Corcoran State Prison in Corcoran, California, and was known as the leader of what later became known as the Manson Family cult. Despite the conviction, Manson himself never committed the murders. >> PHOTOS: Notable deaths 2017 Born in 1934, he was infamously connected to the violent murder of actress Sharon Tate and others in Hollywood. The Family, as they became known, carried out at least 35 murders, most of which never resulted in convictions.  The first murders occurred in Aug. 1969, at a Los Angeles home rented by Roman Polanski. Mason reportedly directed four followers -- Charles “Tex” Watson, Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel and Linda Kasabian -- to brutally murder four victims in the house. Tate, Polanski’s pregnant wife, was among them, as were hairstylist Jay Sebring, coffee bean heiress Abigail Folger and her partner, writer Wojciech Frykowski. Steven Parent, 18, was also killed outside of the home. Polanski was shooting a movie in London. >> PHOTOS: Charles Manson through the years The Family, made up of about 100 followers, lived unconventionally and routinely used hallucinogenic drugs, such as magic mushrooms and LSD. In January, Manson was hospitalized with a reported serious illness. According to TMZ, he had severe intestinal bleeding. He was sent back to Corocoran after doctors said he was too weak for doctors to repair a lesion. 
  • Charles Manson is dead, but the sister of a victim of the string of murders he orchestrated in 1969 Los Angeles said upon his death that he is the “least of (her) worries.” “Right now, we have one Manson family member on deck who has been granted a parole date,” Debra Tate, sister of slain actress Sharon Tate, told ABC News. “It’s important for people to know that these are individuals that are still brutal monsters capable of coming heinous crimes.” “Although I’ve forgiven, I have not forgotten, and I feel it’s very important that they stay exactly where they are until they die.” Manson, who died Sunday night at age 83, became one of the most infamous criminals of the 20th century when, in the early morning hours of Aug. 9, 1969, he armed a group of his followers and ordered them to go to 10050 Cielo Drive, a secluded home in Benedict Canyon. There, they brutally murdered Sharon Tate, celebrity hairdresser Jay Sebring, coffee heiress Abigail Folger, Folger’s partner, Wojciech Frykowski and Steven Parent, a teenager who had stopped by to visit the caretaker of the property, who was later found unharmed in the guest house. Tate, the wife of famed director Roman Polanski, was nearly nine months pregnant when she was murdered. Their baby, a son named Paul, also died when Tate was stabbed to death. “People are saying that this should be some kind of relief, but oddly enough, it isn’t,” Debra Tate told ABC News. “While Charlie may be gone, it’s the ones that are still alive that perpetrated everything, and it was up to their imaginations for what brutal things were going to be done. In an odd way, I see them as much more dangerous individuals.” The Manson family’s murder spree continued the following night, Aug. 10, 1969, when Manson and his followers went to the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, to the home of grocer Leno LaBianca and his wife, Rosemary. After tying the couple up, Manson left and the others in his group stabbed the couple to death. >> Read more trending news Manson and four others -- Charles “Tex” Watson, Susan Atkins, Leslie Van Houten and Patricia Krenwinkel -- were subsequently convicted in the Tate-LaBianca murders. Linda Kasabian, another Manson follower initially charged with murder, received immunity for testifying against the others at trial.  The trial ended in death penalties, but the sentences were commuted to life in prison in 1972, when the California Supreme Court abolished capital punishment.
