    It’s Tuesday, May 14th – and NBC 6 has the top stories you need to know for the day.

    Weather wise, the heat and humidity stick around for a few more days with temperatures feeling like they are in the triple digits with the chance for afternoon storms sticking around through Wednesday.

    No. 1 - Police are looking for a male suspect in connection with a sexual battery that happened in Hollywood.

    The alleged incident happened at around 9 a.m. Sunday in front of the Banyan Food Store in the 5800 block of Hollywood Boulevard. Police said the suspect threatened and forced a female victim inside a silver, four-door Nissan with damage to its front and rear passenger doors.

    No. 2 - The body of a South Florida woman who had been missing for six years was found inside a freezer at a scrap warehouse.

    The owner of the Margate business, Lilian Argueta, said she opened the freezer and found the body of 35-year-old Heather Lacey in March. Argueta told NBC 6 that the freezer was brought to her business to be used for scrap metal, and she said she was in shock and crying when she made the discovery.

    No. 3 - Family members say Dr. Sergio Alvarez performed the Brazilian butt lift procedure on 28-year-old Danea Plasencia before she died last week following the operation. Alvarez is a board-certified plastic surgeon and the owner and medical director of Mia Aesthetics.

    The medical examiner says Plasencia died of a fat embolism, which the NBC 6 Investigators found at least 12 women died of during the same procedure in our area under different doctors and clinics.

    No. 4 - A judge ruled Palm Beach County prosecutors can't use surveillance video in the prostitution solicitation case against New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. The video allegedly shows Kraft receiving sexual favors in January at the Orchids of Asia spa in Jupiter.

    No. 5 - Attorney General William Barr has appointed a U.S. attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine if intelligence collection involving the Trump campaign was "lawful and appropriate," a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press on Monday.

    Barr appointed John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, to conduct the inquiry. Durham's appointment comes about a month after Barr told members of Congress he believed "spying did occur" on the Trump campaign in 2016.

    No. 6 - A South Florida doctor is fighting to get his medical license reinstated after getting caught on undercover video prescribing medical marijuana using a web camera to a patient who didn't have a medical need for it.

    The NBC 6 Investigators obtained the exclusive undercover video that shows just how easy it was for a man to get medical marijuana without having a medical problem. To see the video, click on this link.
