Muscle Shoals police confirm to WAFF 48 News that a youth minister at Highland Park Church has been charged with several serious crimes.  Jeff Eddie faces charges including dealing with child porn, the sexual abuse of a child under 12 and sodomy.

And we're also seeing a nationwide rise of heroin use among the entire population, including teenagers. WAFF 48's Charles Molineaux will have more from a drug expert who was in Huntsville tonight to speak to parents and educators about this growing danger and the reasons for it's growth.
