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 22-year-old Mississippi man has been arrested and charged with the death of an openly gay mayoral candidate. Lawrence Reed of Shelby was charged with the murder of Clarksdale mayoral candidate Marco McMillian, 34, on Thursday.
McMillian’s body was found near the Mississippi River levee Wednesday morning, a day after Reed crashed McMillian’s SUV into another vehicle on U.S. highway 49.
Reed was transported to the Regional Medical Center in Memphis, where he is listed in good condition. McMillian’s relationship to Reed is not known.
