16-Year-Old Found Dead In Woods Was Set To Testify Against Man She Said Raped Her

A 16-year-old girl found murdered and left in a wooded area of Kalamazoo, Michigan, was prepared to testify in a rape trial in April, and now the man she was going to testify against is reportedly a person of interest in her death.

Mujey Dumbuya’s body was discovered by a couple taking a stroll on Sunday, January 28, according to WWMT. The teen, who is from Grand Rapids, had gone missing three days earlier.

Immediately, the death was called suspicious by Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety investigators. According to WWMT, multiple sources have stated that Quinn Anthony James is a person of interest in Dumbuya’s death. He is the same man whom she accused of raping her multiple times since she was 15.

Violence Against LGBTQ Americans Dramatically Increased Since Trump’s Inauguration

2017 was deemed one of the most deadly years in terms of anti-LGBTQ violence ever recorded. Now, statistics show that anti-LGBTQ violence has seen an observable spike in the year since President Trump’s inauguration.

According to the Huffington Post, the New York City Anti-Violence Project’s reports have indicated a surge of anti-LGBTQ killings. Statistics show there has been an 86 percent increase in hate violence homicides in the U.S. last year. The attacks coincide quite directly with the end of the election cycle and have shown no signs of subsiding since.

“Trump won the election by saying it was time to take back America for people feeling pushed out by LGBTQ people, immigrants and people of color,” said Beverly Tillery, executive director of the project. “It was a tactical move to attack those communities … It worked, and there are more instances of violence because the climate in the country has

Prosecution Asks Judge To Let 19 More Women Testify Against Bill Cosby In Sexual Assault Retrial

Comedian Bill Cosby has faced a handful of accusations of sexual assault in the past, which allegedly includes the drugging of several women for the purposes of non-consensual sex. Cosby has been embroiled in legal battles to fight against the accusations. Now, prosecutors are calling for an additional 19 women to offer testimony on the matter.

According to Jezebel, District Attorney Kevin Steele is calling on more than a dozen women to testify about Cosby’s use of drugs and sexual assault at Cosby’s retrial. The request was reportedly filed yesterday in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

During Cosby’s first trial, which ended in a mistrial, only one woman was allowed to offer testimony on the subject of Cosby’s use of drugs and subsequent attacks on women. Steele had originally requested testimony from 13 women and was denied, reported The New York Times.

Marcia Clark Claims There’s New Evidence Against Casey Anthony

The not-guilty verdict of Casey Anthony, the Florida mother who claims the death of her daughter was not her fault, had stunned the country back in 2011. Now, years later, prosecutor Marcia Clark (best known for her work in the O.J. Simpson trial) says new evidence has emerged thay may demonstrate Anthony’s guilt.

According to Law and Crime, Clark discovered the new evidence while reviewing the contents of a book by Anthony’s lawyer Jose Baez. Clark now says that searches from Anthony’s computer showed the mother looking for “foolproof suffocation” shortly before the death of Caley (Casey’s daughter). Baez maintained that Casey’s suicidal husband, George Anthony, had searched those terms.

“We reinvestigate,” Clark reportedly said. “The program that the defense attorney’s expert used was incorrect as to the time stamp. And that it wasn’t 1:51 when the search was done, it was 2:51 — at which point we know based on cellphone pings

Cardi B Threatens Legal Action Against Hackers Who Leaked Explicit Videos

Cardi B is fighting back after her boyfriend’s phone was hacked. According to TMZ, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper is taking legal action at whoever got into the phone of her boyfriend, rapper Offset, and leaked explicit images, including a nude of her.

Cardi’s attorney, Scott Mason, tells the site that the explicit visuals were released over the holidays. The visuals were illegally obtained, and a full investigation by her camp is underway.

The “Love Hip Hop” reality star and former stripper says that the nudes themselves are not what bother her. She has been very open and empowered about owning her sexuality in her music and public image.

“People keep posting the nude videos of me like if i wasn’t a stripper before. You know there’s videos of me stripping with my titties ass out on YouTube already right? anyways i know i know i got a nice body right,” she tweeted.

Kendall & Khloe Go To Shooting Range For Self Defense Against Kim’s Wishes

After run-ins with stalkers and robberies, the Kardashians want to protect themselves. Last night on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Khloe Kardashian and Kendall Jenner go to a gun range to learn how to shoot. “We want to learn how to be comfortable with a gun,” Khloe says, per E! “We just want to protect ourselves.”

The decision isn’t something that all the sisters are behind. Despite being the victim of an armed robbery in Paris, Kim Kardashian is totally against her family having guns. She says that she wouldn’t feel comfortable having her small children in a home where a legal gun is kept. “I know Kim is so against us getting guns, but for Kendall and I, it is something we feel we need to do in order to sleep better at night,” Khloe says. “I think Kim will respect it more if she sees later how
