This morning, Chicago police and city inspectors shut down a funeral home, which frankly, should've never been open. Carter's Funeral Home has been without heat and electricity since last October. A contractor (who frankly should face some repercussions for not reporting this to police) told reporters the building has serious sanitation and ventilation problems. He adds, in the summer, workers would freeze bottles of water and place them under corpses to keep the bodies cool and during the winter months, bodies were kept in the garage. Investigators found nine bodies in the funeral home today -- it's unclear how many of them were embalmed, a process that requires electricity. The owner, Harry Joseph Carter III, had his license suspended for at least two times and fined for “violation of regulations, untrustworthiness, embalming without prior consent and unprofessional conduct” and practicing on a non-renewed license and failing to take required continuing education courses. He also faced a two-year probation from October 1999 to October 2001 for the same violations.
Igor Adrian Ramos, 37, who was caught on surveillance video January 18 stealing a Rolex at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport was arrested. During questioning, he told police the watch "was a gift from God."
Meanwhile, in New Jersey, police are searching for two men and a woman caught on surveillance video stealing four Rolex watches, worth a total of nearly $22,000, from a jewelry store at Willbowbrook Mall on Saturday.
Glenn Horlacher visited the "happiest place on earth" last Saturday, and he lost his darn mind. The 52-year-old was pepper-sprayed and arrested after he got into a fight with employees at Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim, Calif. and kicked park visitors.
What's that smell?! Dog poop everywhere on this Harlem street.
A drug dealer goes missing during the course of a drug deal. Quick! Alert the media.
The state of Tennessee has legalized teenage pr0stitution. Anyone under the age of 18 who is caught running the streets will no longer be charged with a crime, instead they will be taken home to their parents -- that's if they don't run away again and go back to running the streets. (Police will go after the men who are trafficking the underage girls.) Leedora Mckinley, 18, a runaway from foster care who has been running the streets for three years now, says: "You like me, I like money." Wow.
Meanwhile.....Why is this man smiling you ask? Only God knows. The smiling man -- 39-year-old James Edward Davis, who's the pastor at Morning Star Baptist Church in Cotton Plant, Arkansas -- is in jail for repeatedly raping the 14-year-old of his ex-girlfriend. And, yes, the teenager is pregnant. So, why is he smiling?
We wonder when the Feds will officially swoop down on Mo' Money Taxes and shut down them down. The tax preparation company, which has been embroiled in controversy after they held hundreds of customers' tax refunds hostage then blamed it on a "computer glitch," was evicted from a Memphis office space for nonpayment of rent then threw out thousands of files which contained customers' personal information -- addresses, driver's license numbers and social security numbers -- jn a dumpster.
These crazy kids are made for each other. Wow! I just can't. I mean... Wow!!!!!!!!
LOOK: A Connecticut woman is suing the City of Bridgeport for damages her Ugg boots when she attended a hockey game last month. Gina Zamary says on January 25 she attended a hockey game at the Webster Bank Arena with her son and husband. The family parked in one of the city-owned lots across the street and the tragedy struck. “I came out of our car from the passenger side,” she wrote in the claim, “and proceeded across the front of our car and then found myself face down on the ground. When I turned to see what had happened I saw a Rebar hooked inside the front of my Ugg boots.” She's suing for $250, the cost to replace the boots.
