Dateline will outline the case and bring you key points in the investigation that led to the killer’s arrest.
There are a lot of ways to spend your holidays, and if watching women dance around with their tops off as Farrah Abraham has her picture taken next to a fake Christmas tree is how you want to do it, I can’t recommend a better venue for the occasion than Headquarters Gentlemen’s Club in New York.
While I have been to strip clubs before, I’ve never gone to one during the holidays, and I expected it to be extremely depressing. Only the loneliest of lonely hearts would pay for company when they should be with family, but the atmosphere was surprisingly convivial. Just a bunch of peppy perverts celebrating the Friday night before Christmas together, sharing their mutual interest in booze and boobs. As Headquarters is upholstered almost entirely in red, it even felt kind of like being wrapped up in a
It’s a line you’ll hear in almost any crime show after someone finds the body — the detective turns to the medical examiner and asks, “Time of death?” But in real life, medical examiners don’t have a very precise method for figuring out how long ago someone died.
Now, researchers say they could use the bacteria found on the body to provide a more accurate way to pinpoint the time of death, according to a new study.
In the study, published today (Dec. 22) in the journal PLOS ONE, researchers examined the “necrobiomes” of 21 cadavers. The necrobiome, or the community of bacteria found on a dead body, changes considerably as time passes after death and the body decomposes, according to the study.

By now, very few industries remain completely untouched by feminism. Yet, every woman knows about that one glaring holdout: car maintenance.
Always male and almost always brusque, car mechanics have a universal way of alienating women – whether they’re overcharging us, condescending to us, or forcing us to wait in a fumy garage surrounded by greasy dudes. Even though female drivers outnumber male drivers in the U.S., we’ve largely accepted this reality. Many of us even tell ourselves that we don’t belong in the mechanics industry, or that we have no business going under the hood, ever.
Not Patrice Banks. She does it all in heels.
Banks is the founder of Girls Auto Clinic in Philadelphia, where
Good news for Soulja Boy. After being arrested for violating his probation last week, charges against the rapper have been dropped. “I am looking forward to focusing back on the music and new business for 2017,” Soulja Boy said in a statement per XXL.
Soulja Boy was arrested after he made threats on the Internet, hinting that he had guns at his home. After pleading no contest to an earlier charge of carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle, the rapper is not allowed to have a firearm. When cops arrived, they found a gun and he was arrested.
XXL shares that he was bailed out of Van Nuys jail in Los Angeles in under 24 hours. He then jumped back on social media, firing shots at rappers and his ex. “F*ck quavo, Lil yachty, and Nia Riley,” he wrote. “I ain’t going no where. Quavo called the police on me. Finna go f*ck my B*tch.
Here we go again. Twitter recently took aim at one of its most popular targets — Lil Kim— again.
This time, what prompted the ruckus was a recent photo of the rap legend where her face appears unusually bright. The pic may actually be photoshopped, but that didn’t stop anyone on social media from going in on Kim.
It wasn’t all hate, though; a number of fans chimed in to defend Kim.
According to The Jasmine Brand, Kim recently responded to a fan who critiqued her appearance, writing on Instagram, “Ok but when the f*ck did I bleach my skin u miserable Moron! My plast post clearly shows that but u haters will always have something to say even when facts r right in front of ur face but I understand ur just doing
The author’s description: Divine Justice: The Dianne Alexander Story is inspired by an actual event. It gives in depth details about my encounter with The Southwest Louisiana Serial Killer “Derrick Todd Lee.” But most of all, the book speaks about divine interventions from the beginning to the end of my horrible ordeal. I pray that this book will help you to see that God is a God of “Love and Forgiveness.”
Can you make a whole network out of crazy-lady crime shows like Snapped? ’Cause I can make a whole weekend out of them. Well, NBCUniversal may be trying, anyway—the company is exploring rebranding its Oxygen network as a crime-focused channel with producer Dick Wolf.Variety’s Cynthia Littletonbroke the news, writing, “The discussions are a sign that even the largest cable programmers are feeling the pressure when it comes to under-performing channel assets. Oxygen has been in a ratings slump with few buzzy series to draw attention. . . . Oxygen already has taken steps to shift its programming focus by recently adding a ‘Crime-Time’-branded block of unscripted true-crime series on four days of the week, Friday–Monday, to capitalize on the growing interest in such docu fare. That block is producing 44 percent ratings gains over the year-ago performance.”
Ever since its launch, NBCUniversal’s Oxygen has struggled with identity as just another female-focused cable network among a slew of others, including Lifetime, Bravo, E! and WEtv. It finally might have found its identity in crime programming, which has done surprisingly well.
Oxygen’s Crime Time primetime block, recently expanded from three to four nights a week, boosted the network’s total-day ratings on those days by 44% in 4Q vs. the same period last year. The NBCU cable leadership has taken notice and is starting to explore an overall crime-theme rebranding of the network. Talks are underway with prolific crime drama producer Dick Wolf, who is in the NBCU family with a rich deal, as well
NBCUniversal and prolific producer Dick Wolf are in discussions about turning the Oxygen cable channel into a crime-centric outlet anchored by Wolf’s Universal TV-produced drama series.
Sources cautioned that the discussions are still in the early stages and that a formal deal may not come together. It is understood that Wolf might wind up with a small equity stake in the revamped channel.
NBCUniversal declined to comment. A rep for Dick Wolf also declined comment.
The discussions are a sign that even the largest cable programmers are feeling the pressure when it comes to under-performing channel assets. Oxygen has been in a ratings slump with few buzzy series to draw attention. In primetime, the network is down 12% in adults 18-49 — and 13% in women 18-49 — from 2015, in Nielsen’s live-plus-seven ratings. Its average primetime draw is 228,000 total viewers, with 99,000
