• Kidnapped teen was gang-raped, killed and fed to gators

    A teenager who vanished from Myrtle Beach, SC, in 2009 was repeatedly raped in a gang “stash house” for several days - then she was shot dead and fed to alligators when her disappearance generated too much media attention, the FBI said last week. The shocking new details about the mysterious disappearance of 17-year-old Rochester, NY, native Brittanee Drexel came largely from a “jailhouse confession” that was subsequently substantiated by others with “tidbits” and “secondhand information,” FBI Agent Gerrick Munoz testified in a federal court transcript obtained by the Post and Courier of Charleston. The inmate who gave the alleged bombshell confession, Taquan Brown, is serving a 25-year sentence for voluntary manslaughter in a different case. Brown told authorities he was present during the final agonizing moments of Drexel’s life, Munoz said.

  • Mariska Hargitay reportedly freaks out on 'Law & Order: SVU' set

    Mariska Hargitay lost it on the NYC set of “Law & Order: SVU” last week. “They were shooting on Ninth Avenue, and she was yelling, ‘Did you get that?’ to a crew member. The guy responded, ‘No,’ and she went apes - - t,” a spy said. “She was saying, ‘When I do these, you have to make sure you get this.’ She was in a full NYPD police vest and was running down the street out of nowhere yelling at this guy.” A source close to the show, however, told us, “It’s her on-set shtick. This is her joking around with the camera guys . . . They’ve been working together for 18 years.”

He announced that this huge procedure will happen in December 2017. Canavero has recruited a head surgeon to lead this historical process. All of this may sound like something out of a science-fiction movie, but there is one man who is hoping that this operation will improve the quality of his life. A 30-year-old man from Russia, called Valery Spiridonov, is the first volunteer for the operation in the hope of living a normal life.

  • Blue Ivy Wanted Absolutely Nothing to Do With the VMAs, and the Internet Was Here For It

    Blue Ivy graciously decided to give the peasants of the world a glimpse at her cuteness when she attended the MTV Video Music Awards in NYC on Sunday night, strutting down the event's white carpet hand in hand with her date, Beyoncé. Blue is known for having quite the personality, so while everyone in the crowd couldn't get enough of her, the 4-year-old future superstar looked beyond over it. When you're used to hanging out in Paris and chilling on yachts all day, the VMAs just don't cut it, you know? The internet had a field day with Blue's hilariously unimpressed expression, giving the reactions to Prince George's expressions a run for their money.

  • Prosecutor: Man told 2-year-old to ‘put up his hands’ and fight before beating him to death

    The fight began with a mother and her boyfriend arguing over groceries. At some point, prosecutors in Camden County, N.J., say, the woman’s 2-year-old boy became upset that 24-year-old Zachary Tricoche had pushed his mother and began to cry, according to the Courier-Post. That’s when Tricoche attacked, prosecutors say, punching the 29-pound boy so hard that the toddler was launched into a wall, Camden County Assistant Prosecutor Christine Shah said at a court hearing last week, according to NJ.com. Then, Shah said, Tricoche instructed the 36-inch-tall toddler to “put his hands up,” meaning “that he should form a boxing stance to fight this full-grown man,” NJ.com reported. At that point, Tricoche

  • Clinton’s Connections To Racists And Tyrants Remain Unexplained

    After Trump attacked Clinton at a rally in Mississippi where he called her a “bigot” who “sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings,” Clinton told CNN’s Anderson Cooper Trump is “taking a hate movement mainstream” and suggested Trump has “courted” white supremacists. Regardless of who Trump is and who he has associated himself with, two facts remain crystal clear: First, Hillary Clinton has a long history of being connected to or saying she admires bigots, racists, and tyrants who do not support individual liberty or equality under the law for minorities, and second, the mainstream media has largely ignored all of this as part of its effort to help Clinton win the White House in November.

  • She was the PTA mom everyone knew. Who would want to harm her?

    The cop wanted her car keys. Kelli Peters handed them over. She told herself she had nothing to fear, that all he’d find inside her PT Cruiser was beach sand, dog hair, maybe one of her daughter’s toys. They were outside Plaza Vista School in Irvine, where she had watched her daughter go from kindergarten to fifth grade, where any minute now the girl would be getting out of class to look for her. Parents had entrusted their own kids to Peters for years; she was the school’s PTA president and the heart of its after-school program. Now she watched as her ruin seemed to unfold before her. Watched as the cop emerged from her car holding a Ziploc bag of marijuana, 17 grams worth, plus a ceramic pot

  • 'Ice Road Truckers' Star Darrell Ward -- Dies in Plane Crash

    "Ice Road Truckers" star Darrell Ward died in a plane crash Sunday. Darrell had just left a truck show in Dallas where he met fans and friends, and was heading back to Missoula, MT to begin filming a pilot for his new documentary -- ironically and sadly about the recovery of plane wrecks. Darrell was flying with a co-pilot when their Cessna single engine plane crashed on approach near the Rock Creek exit of Interstate 90. The family said, "While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief. His manager and best friend M. Bob Stanton and long time friend Chuck Campbell are expected to make a lengthier statement shortly." He was 52

  • The New Orleans Saints are a disaster, but how did it get to this?

    The New Orleans Saints as it stands today are not a good football team, they aren't even a bad team, they're awful. Because, a team that is built around a world class offense and the greatness of Drew Brees is worthless if they can't keep that quarterback upright. Three games into the Saints preseason and the offensive line's greatest achievement is that they were only bad against Pittsburgh, but not putrid. This is of course awful news for Saints fans as many of us believe (myself included) that this might be the best group of weapons Drew Brees has ever been surrounded with, and while they are yet far from 'good' the defense has shown signs of real improvement through those three games.
