Sulphur Police: "Church vandalism suspect said he was on a mission from God"

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck from the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working for Nightcast.

We are learning more about the suspect in four church vandalisms in Sulphur. According to Sulphur Police suspect Daniel Duplechin told them he was on a mission from God and that... "God told him to destroy the statues." According to police Duplechin broke into the churches with a sledge hammer and destroyed religious statues.   

Plus, we are hearing more about what principals and teachers did to shield students from a gunman in the deadly school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

Also, in our Healthcast report why people living in apartments could be at higher risk for lung cancer.  

And Meteorologist Cedric Haynes says the roller coaster of temperatures will continue with a big chance for rain on the way.

We'll see you tonight at ten for Nightcast. Until then we're always on at kplctv.com.
