The family of an AIDS-infected 14-year-old was in seclusion Friday after receiving a death threat apparently connected to his widely publicized wedding plans, police said. The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office said deputies are providing 24-hour patrol surveillance of the home of Clifford and Louise Ray. He wouldn't elaborate on additional measures. Ray made a complaint Thursday evening saying he has received death threats by telephone following his son Ricky's engagement announcement, said Lt. Bill Stookey. "Don't worry, your son is going to die," an anonymous caller warned Ray, Stookey said Friday.Dispute ends with man's ashes divided
MIAMI _ Taking a lesson from Solomon, a judge ended a family dispute over the cremated remains of a former Olympian: Each side gets half. Peter Moldenhauer's widow and two daughters from a previous marriage fought over the ashes for more than four months until Dade Circuit Judge Robert Newman came up with a solution. Daughters Gabrielle and Christina will bury their portion of the remains at Arlington National Cemetery. The other half will be flown to St. Augustine National Cemetery at the request of the widow, Carol Moldenhauer. "It was the best I could do," the judge said. Moldenhauer died of cancer Jan. 29 in Miami at 51. He was on the U.S. field hockey team during the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City and served as a major in the U.S. Army Reserves. The two daughters are still fighting for Moldenhauer's football and Olympic mementos. Newman said he'll decide that later.
