    A group of local parents fear for their daughters' well being after the girls met a chiropractor, Dr. Craig Stasio. Is this just a group of people dedicated to their work and faith? Or is it something else?

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJBK) -- The latest Problem Solver investigation from FOX 2's Rob Wolchek tells the painful story of a group of parents who say their daughters gave up college, career dreams and their families for a life of giving massages and worshiping with their boss.

It all started when these girls happened to meet a charismatic chiropractor named Dr. Craig Stasio. Now, they all work for Stasio at Agape Massage Therapy and Chiropractic in Clinton Township. The employees even live together in various communal houses.

But, sources tell Wolchek the chiropractor preaches of an upcoming doomsday. The parents say their daughters refer to him as "the prophet."

What's really going on at this massage clinic?

    A Delta Air Lines flight from La Guardia Airport to West Palm Beach, Florida, was diverted to Jacksonville because of a dispute between passengers over a reclining seat. Delta reportedly says the flight was diverted Monday night when a woman got into an argument with a passenger behind her when the woman was trying to recline her seat while the other passenger was trying to sleep on the tray table.
