Why did this woman keep her dead mother’s mummified body at home?

An Arkansas woman allegedly mummified her dead mother’s body in newspaper and continued using her credit cards, police say. 

According to authorities, George Maness reported his sister, Gloria Pike, missing back in July. He claimed he hadn’t seen her for nearly a year even though they lived on shared property. 

When police contacted Pike’s 54-year-old daughter, Geanee, she claimed that her mother was staying with a friend somewhere. Authorities eventually caught the woman “using her missing mother’s check card” and obtained a search warrant.

They entered the home Geanee and Gloria had been sharing to find “deplorable living conditions.” 

Authorities ultimately made the grim discovery that led to Geanee Pike’s arrest earlier this week.

A British stripper and her boyfriend steal more than $11,000 from fellow exotic dancer

A jealous stripper and her boyfriend stole thousands of dollars from another exotic dancer earlier this year, and, yesterday, the couple was sentenced to jail.

Twenty-nine-year-old Gemma Lyons apparently became angry when a client spent $11,000 with her coworker, Mihaela Sasarman, instead of with her. She and her boyfriend, 36-year-old Nicholas Proctor, “hatched a plan” to get the money for themselves, officials say.

As Sasarman was leaving work early one morning, the couple followed her to the subway. 

What the couple did next is pretty disturbing. 

Lyons is set to serve five years in jail, while her boyfriend will be behind bars for five years.

Is the New York governor finally going to be forced out of office or what?

Yesterday was a big one for the governor of New York. The state’s attorney general finally released her bombshell 165-page report that ultimately found that Andrew Cuomo did, in fact, sexually harass 11 women plus create a toxic workplace for his employees.

Cuomo, who underwent some 11 hours of interviews as part of the investigation, has vehemently denied the claims made in her report. 

“I never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances. I am 63 years old. I’ve lived my entire adult life in public view. That is just not who I am… Politics and bias are interwoven throughout every aspect of this investigation.”

He refuted the allegations against him in his own 85-page report, released by his attorney

President Joe Biden finally added his voice to the chorus of those calling for Cuomo’s resignation.

“He should resign,” he told reporters yesterday. “I understand the state legislature may decide to impeach, I do not know that for a fact.”

How the brother of firefighter who died honors the 20th anniversary of 9/11

The 20th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks is just around the corner, and Frank Siller is honoring that day with a 500-mile, six-week walk that began yesterday. 

Siller lost his brother, who was a firefighter, that day, and said he will spend this time thinking of him. 

“It’s very emotional,” he said. “…I think about the innocent lives that were lost here at the Pentagon. There were so many acts of heroism that day that have to be told. Some have been told… and some have not yet been told…”

He began his journey at the Pentagon, near the place where 184 passengers on American Airlines flight 77 lost their lives. 

Ultimately, he will wind up in Manhattan, headed toward the World Trade Center, where his brother lost his life.
