But she and her family could come up with only enough money to have them cremated, then left the remains to a Detroit funeral home to bury. Instead, authorities later discovered their cremated remains among nearly 300 others in bags, boxes and other containers inside Cantrell Funeral Home. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)

FILE- In this Jan. 18, 2014, file photo, an endangered female orca leaps from the water while breaching in Puget Sound west of Seattle, Wash. For years, scientists have identified dams, pollution and vessel noise as causes of the troubling decline of the Pacific Northwest's resident killer whales. Now, they may have found a new and more surprising culprit: pink salmon. Salmon researchers perusing data on the website of the Center for Whale Research noticed a startling trend: that for the past two decades, significantly more of the whales have died in even-numbered years than in odd years. In a newly published paper, they speculate that the pattern is related to pink salmon, which return to the waters between Washington state and Canada in enormous numbers every other year.
