I graduated from the University of Florida (GO GATORS!). I received a bachelor’s degree in journalism and a minor in business administration. I was born and raised in Florida, so I am not used to this Pennsylvania weather, and I am definitely not used to snow. I started working as a reporter at WCJB TV20 News in Gainesville, Fla., and now I am excited to be working for FOX 43!
I began working at FOX43 in November 2015.
I love talking to people because everyone has a story to share. If you have any story ideas for me, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org! Follow me on Twitter @CaitlinSinett or on Facebook at Caitlin Sinett FOX43.
CONEWAGO TOWNSHIP, Pa. — A York County neighborhood is in mourning after the death of Baltimore Homicide Detective Sean Suiter. Suiter lived in Conewago Township.

Just an outright tragedy for this to happen to him.” Suiter, 43, was shot and killed in Baltimore while working a homicide investigation. […]
CAMP HILL, Pa. — Speed enforcement is now on the Pennsylvania House of Representatives’ radar. State Rep. Greg Rothman said, “We have way too many deaths on highways. Too many accidents.” The bill would allow local police officers to use radar to enforce speed limits. It passed the state senate. Pennsylvania is the only state in the country that doesn’t allow local police officers to use radar. Lawmakers have tried to pass different versions of the bill into law for […]

HARRISBURG, Pa. — People in Harrisburg received flyers before the election. One says if they go out to vote in the local election, they get a raffle ticket where they could win $500 for an iPhone X. The other flyer tells people to not vote for current Mayor Eric Papenfuse and write in his opponent Gloria Martin-Roberts. Papenfuse said, “It’s a clear violation of election law. It’s illegal. It needs to be condemned in the strongest terms.” The flyers referenced […]
ABERDEEN, Md. — It’s the “pee” in power. Scientists with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory are using urine to generate power to give people in the military easier access to energy. Researchers at the Aberdeen Proving Ground found a way to combine water with an aluminum-based powder they developed to make hydrogen. The hydrogen can be used to potentially power fuel cells for soldiers. Dr. Kris Darling, a U.S. ARL scientist, said, “Being able to use a fluid that they would […]
HARRISBURG, Pa. — A flyer has Pennsylvania Democrats outraged. Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chairman Marcel Groen said, “Parties do low blows. But in terms of judicial races, I’ve never seen anything like this.” The flyer says, “Vote For Judges Who Share Our Values And Stand For The Flag,” and on the bottom says, “Vote Republican On Tuesday, November 7th.” Groen said, “We are and we were livid. It is beyond the pale of decency. It is wrong.” But the Pennsylvania GOP stands by […]

They said Steven went out to ride his bike near the house and didn’t show up after being called for dinner one evening. McMichael said, “It was a very tense […]
