It’s been 7 years since 28-year-old Kanika Powell was gunned down outside her Prince George’s County apartment by an unknown assailant.

Pittsburgh police have a mystery on their hands. Over the last five weeks, cops have responded to 27 urgent 911 calls they say appear to be coming from inside the home of A.J. Richardson, a former candidate for the mayor of Pittsburgh.
Richardson insists the calls aren’t coming from his house, according to CBS affiliate KDKA2. By law the police can not ignore the 911 calls. A constant police presence outside the home at 3056 Bergman St. has become a normal occurrence to Richardson’s neighbors.
A mysterious illness that causes starfish to rip themselves apart has marine scientists baffled. The mystery condition has affected starfish up and down the west coast, mainly near Washington state.
The illness causes starfish to develop lesions on their bodies. The disoriented starfish twist their arms into knots. The arms then crawl away and rip apart from the bodies causing the insides to spill out. Without arms the starfish die within 24 hours. And, unlike most starfish, the arms don’t regenerate.
Two Jonesboro, Arkansas officers are on administrative leave while police investigate how a 21-year-old man was shot in the back seat of their patrol car.
21-year-old Chavis Carter was in the passenger seat of a pickup truck that was pulled over by police before 10 p.m. Saturday night, WREG reports.
According to Officer Keith Baggett, Officer Ron Marsh found “some marijuana” and several plastic baggies when he searched Carter. A quick check turned up a warrant on Carter in Mississippi, where he lived.
The cops then handcuffed him, searched him again, and put him in the back seat of the patrol car. As officers searched the pickup truck, Baggett claims he heard “a loud thump with a metallic sound” on his trunk and saw Marsh motion to him.
In a strange but true story from the Far East, a 63-year-old woman was ‘impregnated’ in the mouth after eating cooked calamari (squid).
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information in Bethesda, Maryland, the unidentified woman complained of a sharp pain in her mouth after eating a piece of fully cooked squid.
The woman from South Korea took the remainder of her calamari meal to a local hospital where doctors found 12 “bug-like organisms” stuck to the mucosa (skin) lining the woman’s mouth.
After examining the woman, doctors found “baby cephalopods” and the “presence of the sperm bag” attached to the inside of her mouth. “The foreign bodies were later identified as squid spermatophores.”

DO YOU REALLY THINK ALL THESE PEOPLE WOULD KEEP UP THE CHARADE OF HER REALLY CARRYING AROUND A DOLL? JUST A QUESTION.
What do you guys think? I’m going to say that the child Beyonce is holding in the left pic doesn’t look like the well-nourished baby/doll she’s been carrying around. These pics only add to the mystery.
Is a movie poster-style online graphic really just a marketing ploy for a sequel to the 1981 cult classic film ‘Escape from NY‘? Or is it really a warning from Al-Qaeda that they have bigger plans for the big apple than 9/11?
According to Yahoo News, via the Associated Press, a mock movie poster surfaced on a website warning al-Qaida plans to return to New York City, but the NYPD says they are convinced that it’s an actual threat.
I wonder what it would take to convince the NYPD of a serious threat from Al-Qaeda?
The feds — more specifically, Homeland Security — are all over the movie poster warning. The feds aren’t taking any chances. They are monitoring the Arab-language website for any other signs of apocalyptic-style warnings.
