Dumped Bag Found Near Brooks' Home

Police are examining a bag containing a computer, a phone, and paperwork that was found in the garbage near the home of Rebekah Brooks, the former chief executive of Rupert Murdoch's News International who was arrested Sunday and questioned over the phone-hacking scandal that's rocked Murdoch's media empire. According to The Guardian newspaper, the bag was found in an underground parking lot just yards from the apartment block where Brooks lives. It was handed to security Monday afternoon, and Brooks' husband, Charlie, tried to reclaim it. He couldn't prove the bag was his, and the police were called. He also denied that it belonged to his wife. CCTV footage is being looked at to ascertain who dropped the bag in the trash.
