• Kidnapped teen was gang-raped, killed and fed to gators

    A teenager who vanished from Myrtle Beach, SC, in 2009 was repeatedly raped in a gang “stash house” for several days — then she was shot dead and fed to alligators when her disappearance generated too much media attention, the FBI said last week. The shocking new details about the mysterious disappearance of 17-year-old Rochester, NY, native Brittanee Drexel came largely from a “jailhouse confession” that was subsequently substantiated by others with “tidbits” and “secondhand information,” FBI Agent Gerrick Munoz testified in a federal court transcript obtained by the Post and Courier of Charleston. The inmate who gave the alleged bombshell confession, Taquan Brown, is serving a 25-year sentence for voluntary manslaughter in a different case. Brown told authorities he was present during the final agonizing moments of Drexel’s life, Munoz said.

  • How big are consequences for 49ers if they cut Colin Kaepernick?

    A week ago, Colin Kaepernick’s future represented a football problem for the San Francisco 49ers. The quarterback’s national anthem protest has put the organization at a complicated crossroads, where the realities of salary, performance, protest and optics all merge into the same lane. Now the 49ers have less than a week to choose a direction with Kaepernick.

  • New Michael Jackson Book Reveals a Secret Romance: ‘He Loved the Ladies’

    Shana Mangatal idolized Michael Jackson as a teenager. But as an adult, she says she had something only fans of MJ could only dream of: a romance and, even more so, a friendship with him. Mangatal, now 46, has written a book, Michael and Me: The Untold Story of Michael Jackson’s Secret Romance, about her time with the late artist. Thanks to the detailed diaries she began keeping years before she met him, Mangatal recalls her experiences with Jackson over two decades, from the first time she attended one of his concerts in 1988, to the years when she worked as part of his management team.

  • A letter to my breadwinner husband

    My dearest Bill, The other day, around 3:00pm on a random Wednesday, I was headed to the grocery store to get something to make for dinner. As you know, I’ve been slacking on the food front for some time and can’t seem to get organized the way I used to. Remember when I would go through our cookbooks every Sunday and plan the meals for the week, and then shop once for the entire week? I know, I know, I always made a second trip; but still, the bulk of the food was in the fridge. I did that for more than a decade, but it was such a monotonous task I can’t bring myself to keep up with it. So now I play ‘catch as catch can’ and, as you like to say, shop like a French woman who goes to the store

  • Dale Earnhardt Jr. concussion issues put retirement on table

    Athletes rarely say goodbye on their own terms. The farewell usually involves mitigating circumstances: A mangled knee for a football player. An arm that has lost velocity for a pitcher. The slow-step separation between a bad NBA player and a great one. Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s kryptonite is his head. It is fuzzy, and certainly not sharp enough to weave through traffic at speeds that approach 200 miles an hour on NASCAR's superspeedways. He's missed six races already with concussion-related symptoms. He will miss one more this weekend at Darlington. His chances of qualifying for the Chase are toast, needing a win at Richmond on Sept. 10 before the cutoff. With no championship to chase, practical

  • Joe Scarborough gives Donald Trump a brutal nickname — and it's sticking

    Donald Trump is getting a taste of his own medicine: While the Republican nominee has successfully branded his political enemies with nicknames like "Lyin' Ted Cruz" and "Crooked Hillary Clinton," Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough came up with a moniker of his own for Trump, and it appears to be sticking. "A lot of people are calling him Amnesty Don. People are saying it," Scarborough said Monday. "They're calling him Amnesty Don. Amnesty Don, that's what people are calling him, I'm not calling him that. Amnesty Don. Hashtag Amnesty Don. For 14 months, Amnesty Don has been putting illegal immigration at the center of Amnesty Don's campaign... And, yet, nobody in Amnesty Don's own campaign can

    Every night in the US, an Airbus A300 aircraft takes off from Denver, Colorado bound for Memphis, Tennessee. “Flight 1311 departs every night of the year, though the number varies by the month,” says Marcus Martinez, managing director of the company’s global operations control at FedEx’s sprawling 880-acre airfield at Memphis International Airport. While more attention is normally given to FedEx’s “last mile” network of 48,500 motorized vehicles, its air operation moves four million packages and 11 million pounds of air freight every day. “We’re moving more than 1.4m packages every night just through our SuperHub in Memphis,” says Raj Subramaniam, FedEx’s executive vice-president for global strategy, marketing and communications.

The guy responded, ‘No,’ and she went apes - - t,” a spy said. “She was saying, ‘When I do these, you have to make sure you get this.’ She was in a full NYPD police vest and was running down the street out of nowhere yelling at this guy.” A source close to the show, however, told us, “It’s her on-set shtick. This is her joking around with the camera guys . . . They’ve been working together for 18 years.”

    Hillary Clinton and her media allies have been working overtime to put out numerous fires that continue to pop up and spread during the final weeks of her campaign for president. Recently, the flames have gotten more difficult to smother as reports of Clinton’s frail health have bled into the mainstream media, despite the unanimous and unilateral decision by the MSM to treat anyone who even raises a question as akin to a Holocaust denier. (On Sunday night, for example, Huffington Post fired contributor David Seaman and deleted his columns simply for linking to a Hillary health video that’s been viewed four million times.)
