* Bosma Body Found. Police confirm that Tim Bosma was killed after he went on a test drive with two men in his truck.
* Noisy Frogs. A Wisconsin noise complaint is croaked in mystery -- until police see the owner's garden pond.
* Keystone Ads. Prime Minister Stephen Harper heads to NYC as part of a global push to promote the oilsands.
* Guatemala Genocide Verdict. Former military ruler Efrain Rios Montt is found guilty of crimes against humanity.
* Lobstermen Return. Fishermen defy their protesting colleagues and head back out, despite record low prices.
* Moth Hearing Study. Scientists discover that the Greater Wax Moth has the keenest hearing of any creature in the world.
Road to hell. Hamilton police announce they will charge the scion of an aviation dynasty in the death of Tim Bosma -- who went missing a week ago, and whose remains have now been found.
Labrador retrieved. Yvonne Jones defeats former cabinet minister Peter Penashue in a by-election that returns the riding to its Liberal habitual.
Against all odds. The man who helped convict a former Guatemalan military ruler on charges of genocide reveals how he obtained the evidence that led to the guilty verdict.
Pitching the pitch. We hear analysis of the Prime Minister's trip to New York as his government makes a global push on behalf of Alberta oilsands producers.
The greater wax moth doesn't need your pity -- but might welcome the sound of the world's tiniest violin. With hearing fifteen times better than humans, it could easily hear it.
And...croaking for love in all the wrong places. Police respond to a Wisconsin's man complaint about his neighbour's loud music -- only to discover his tormenter is really an army of amphibians, amplified by amore.
As It Happens, the Tuesday edition. Radio that figures that when it comes to love, he hadn't the froggiest idea.
The family and friends of Tim Bosma are in shock today, after police confirmed they have found Mr. Bosma's body.
Tim Bosma went missing eight days ago. He was last seen heading out on a drive with two men who responded to ad he'd placed on Kijiji, advertising the sale of his Dodge Ram pick-up truck.
Hamilton police have also confirmed that when they found Mr. Bosma's body, it was burned beyond recognition.
They say they will charge one man, twenty-seven-year-old Dellen Millard with first degree murder. And they say they are looking for up to two more suspects.
Molly Hayes is a reporter with the Hamilton Spectator newspaper.
We reached Ms. Hayes in Hamilton.

It was an emotional rollercoaster ride for Toronto hockey fans last night.
After battling back to force a game seven in the playoffs against Boston, and chalking up a four to-one lead in the third period, the Bruins mounted an unprecedented comeback...and won the game, and the series in overtime.
Now the hope turns to the Ottawa Senators -- who face off in their first game against the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight.
CBC Reporter Stu Mills talked to Penguins star Sidney Crosby earlier today about the series.

The Conservatives were quick to celebrate their defeat in yesterday's by-election.
Sure, they had lost in Labrador. Sure, Peter Penashue, a former and guaranteed-by-Peter-MacKay future minister to-be, will not return to caucus, let alone to cabinet. And sure, the seat had gone to the unworthy Liberals.
But Conservative spokesman Fred DeLorey has a keen eye for a silver lining. The Liberal final margin of victory was smaller than their lead in the polls when the campaign began. Clearly a blow for Justin Trudeau, the fresh Liberal prince.
That may not be how Yvonne Jones sees things. We reached the Liberals newest MP in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

And now an update on a story we've been following.
Last night, we heard from Jenny Holdcroft of the labour lobby group IndustriALL about the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh -- an agreement that commits players in the garment industry to independent safety audits and compulsory repairs.
Some big players in the clothing business had just signed on. Today, Loblaw -- owner of the Joe Fresh brand -- agreed to commit to the deal.
The company issued a statement late this afternoon. It reads in part, quote:
"This decision reflects the Company's pledge to stay in Bangladesh and underscores its firm belief that active collaboration . . . is critical to driving effective and lasting change in Bangladesh." Unquote.
Debbie Alsip is innocent.
Wisconsin police have twice knocked at Ms Alsip's door -- concerning a noise complaint against her.
But Debbie Alsip says she is not to blame. But she may have caught more than a whisper of what her neighbours are croaking on about.
We reached Debbie Alsip at her home in Baraboo, Wisconsin.

Stephen Harper seems to be pullling out all the stops to boost the price of oil sands bitumen.
The Prime Minister has a pitch meeting in New York on Thursday. His Environment Minister was doing the same thing last week in London. Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver was just in Europe too, trying to keep a "dirty" label off of oilsands output. Then there's the new lobbying website.
Heather Scoffield has been following the sales effort for the Canadian Press. We reached her in Chelsea, Quebec.
Guilty, guilty, guilty.
That's the ruling of three Guatemalan judges in the trial of Efrain Rios Montt -- a former general who governed Guatemala in the early nineteen-eighties.
The trial itself was an unprecedented event -- and the verdict marks the first time a former leader of the country has been found guilty of genocide in a domestic court.
The trial focussed narrowly on the massacre of one-thousand, seven-hundred-and-seventy-one Mayan Ichil Indians -- killed in just one corner of the country during Rios Montt's military rule.
Fredy Peccerelli played a key role in amassing the evidence against Rios Montt.
Mr. Peccerelli is the executive director of the Forensic Anthropology Foundation of Guatemala. Today we reached him in San Francisco, California.

She was the pioneer of pop television psychology, and brought frank discussions about love, marriage and parenting into the living rooms of Americans. She broke taboos by openly discussing sex, menstruation and impotence.
Joyce Brothers died yesterday at her home in Fort Lee, New Jersey. She was eighty-five. Today, broadcast therapists like Phil McGraw and Mehmet Oz were paying tribute, saying she was the one to first get people to talk openly about their feelings.
But Joyce Brothers didn't start out as a pop psychologist - she was a game-show participant, and, startlingly, an expert on boxing.
In 1955, she appeared on the program, "The Sixty-Four-Thousand-Dollar Question," and answered questions about boxing -- and mostly about light-heavyweight boxing champion Tommy Loughran. Mr. Loughran was standing next to her.
She got every single question correct, and was proven right even when Mr. Loughran challenged one of her answers.
As a result of her success on the show, she was later offered a position on an afternoon television program, dispensing marriage and parenting advice. The rest, as they say, was history.
But it was her performance on the quiz show that got her started.
Here, now, is an excerpt from that program, featuring Joyce Brothers, host Hal March, and boxer Tommy Loughren.

Across the Maritimes, lobster boats are once again heading out on the water to haul in their traps.
For nearly a week now, thousands of fishermen have kept their boats tied up in protest over low prices being offered for their catch.
But processors and buyers have held firm, and many lobstermen can no longer afford to stay home.
Charlie McGeoghegan is the Liberal M-L-A for the district of Belfast-Murray River, Prince Edward Island. He's also a lobster fisherman.
We reached Mr. McGeoghegan in Belfast, PEI.

The numbers keep going up.
Africans seeking a better life in Spain seem completely undeterred by the economic crisis there, which has has so far left six million Spaniards without work.
According to a network of radar stations along Spain's southern coast, the number of people clandestinely crossing the Straight of Gibraltar and landing in Spain has quadrupled over the past year. Most of the migrants make the journey in overcrowded and flimsy rubber dinghies.
Montse Sanchez works with a non-governmental organization called Caminando Fronteras -- or "Walking Borders". It helps migrants on both sides of the straight, which divides north Africa and Europe. We reached Ms. Sanchez in the southern Spanish city of Seville.

"Judas!" That's what one fan shouted at Bob Dylan when the acoustic god plugged in and went electric back in 1965.
That guy should probably not head down to London's Canary Wharf on Thursday night. There's going to be an "algorave".
At an algorave, people dance to music which is being generated, live, by algorithms, running on computers, hooked up to electric amplifiers. Defenders of these dystopic dance parties celebrate the elimination of human creativity from music. They almost apologize that the algorithms have to be coded by keyboard-tapping humans. They also suggest that algoraves are unpredictable and fun.
Judas-shouter, if you're out there, you be the judge.
From a 2012 algorave, initiated by Alex McLean and Dave Griffiths, here is our sound of the day.
Shhhh. They're listening.
If I keep my voice quiet enough, some of you -- especially the older ones, pardon my frankness -- won't hear me. But chances are some creatures out there -- I'm talking about you, dolphins, with your superkeen ear-holes -- will pick up my voice.
And there's now no doubt that one animal out there could hear me, no matter how softly I spoke.
Its record-breaking hearing abilities were recently discovered by scientists.
To tell us more, we reached James Windmill, an electronic engineering professor at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.

Today marks fifteen years since Frank Sinatra's voice went silent. But it's never really faded away.
His trademark velvet sound is still heard on the radio, on movie soundtracks, and in countless lounges, malls and elevators around the world. He racked up dozens of hits over his fifty-year career, selling more than one-hundred-fifty million records.
And long before his death in 1998, there were the covers. You can't swing a roadie without smacking a musician who, at some point in their career, has done their own version of a Sinatra song.
So here now, to mark the anniversary of his passing, is one of the less-conventional ones.
"All The Way" was hit for The Chairman of the Board in 1957. Richard Hell and The Voidoids covered it during the recording of their punk album "Black Generation", in 1977 -- although it wasn't released until 1990.
