A toddler is dead, and Fresno Police have a lot of questions about what happened to the child in the moments leading up to his death.

Investigators from both the homicide and child abuse unit are investigating this suspicious death. But, they will rely on information from an autopsy to find out what happened to the young boy. After hours of collecting evidence inside a West Central Fresno apartment, the crime scene tape is down, but no one answered the door at the unit where a two year old lived. Neighbors say they were very upset to hear about the little boy's death.

Meet a couple who took a Monterey County produce stand and launched an organic revolution.

If you have ever eaten one of those ready-made salads in a bag, you owe that easy meal in part to the vision of a couple in Carmel Valley. It was 25 years ago that they came up with the idea for Earthbound Farm. It all stemmed from an unlikely duo who dared to dream on a plot of land in Monterey County.

Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags at grocery and convenience stores, driven to action by pollution in streets and waterways.

Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of checkout counters at large grocery stores and supermarkets such as Wal-Mart and Target starting next summer, and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law does not apply to bags used for fruits, vegetables or meats, or to shopping bags used at other retailers. It allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags.

Students going back to school in Dubuque, Iowa, are going to find it a little harder to slack off in gym. Public middle and high school students will have to wear heart rate monitors in gym class to make sure they are actually being physically active.

"It will be a large portion of their grade, because we want to grade them on what they're actually doing in our class," Dubuque Schools Athletic and Wellness Director Amy Hawkins told ABC News. Teachers will use the information collected from the heart rate monitors to write report cards.

Hispanic youth used to represent a disproportionately small number of all the children in foster care. Unfortunately, they're catching up.

The Chronicle of Social Change, a site that covers juvenile justice and child welfare, points out that the longer Latino families are in the United States, the closer they get to everything from incarceration to alcoholism and divorce. This, in part, leads to more Latino kids in the foster care system.

In an almond orchard in California's Central Valley, bee inspector Neil Trent pried open a buzzing hive and pulled out a frame to see if it was at least two-thirds covered with bees.

The number of bees needed is expected to increase as almond demand grows and orchards continue to expand. Already, more than half of the country's honeybees are brought to California at the end of February for almond pollination, which requires about 1.5 million hives from out of state, and another 500,000 from elsewhere in the state. Honeybees are preferred for commercial-scale pollination, because they are social, build larger colonies than other bees, and their hives can easily be moved.

The head of Tennessee's child welfare agency resigned Tuesday under scrutiny of how her agency handled the cases of children who were investigated as possible victims of abuse and neglect, then later died.

Gov. Bill Haslam announced Kate O'Day's resignation as Department of Children's Services commissioner in a news release, saying "She was concerned that she had become more of a focus than the children the department serves." Last week the Republican governor was defending O'Day's leadership, even after the agency told a federal judge it couldn't say with total certainty how many children died while in its custody.

Now, to the unraveling of a long, winding and weird custody battle. It's the story of a 24-year-old thought to be missing for decades. Now found, a grown, married man.

How did police track him down after all these years? And what happened here? Abc's john muller is on the story. Reporter: Dan, this case was so cold, indiana state police had to reopen it when the stepfather turned over his son's social security card a few months ago. It was that simple piece of information, a social security number, that led investigators to a 24-year-old whose name changed but whose license picture looked a lot like the 5-year-old boy who went missing. This is a lot for me to take in.
