What we're working on Thursday morning

Good Thursday morning!

The mother of 13-year-old killed in Toone, Tennessee, has set up a scholarship to help other students reach their dreams. We'll talk about the case and the memory behind it.

There is a jail inmate death investigation. A inmate and young father died after his arrest. He is the second inmate to die at the same North Mississippi jail in less than a year. An update this morning.

A troubling new study concerning several high-traffic bridges in Shelby County. This bridge on Interstate 240 at Airways Boulevard is one of several featured in the report from American Road and Transportation Builders Association, which says five high-traffic bridges in Shelby County are considered "structurally deficient" meaning at least one key element of the bridge is in poor or worse condition.  We'll explain the list this morning.

Two children who were the focus of a statewide search were found safe. Four-year-old Lillyanna Beneke and her brother, 2-year-old Ryder were found 12 hours after an alert went out.
