(Los Angeles, CA) — The brother of Las Vegas mass shooter Stephen Paddock is being ordered to stand trial in Los Angeles on a single felony count of possessing over 600 images of child pornography.
Bruce Paddock is free on bail and appeared yesterday in a downtown L.A. courtroom in a wheelchair. Prosecutors say the crimes occurred between January and August of 2014.
The 59-year-old defendant was arrested last October at an assisted living facility in North Hollywood. LAPD officials began investigating Paddock after evidence was discovered inside a business in the nine-thousand block of San Fernando Road in Sun Valley. The investigation began before last year’s shooting in Las Vegas that left 58 people dead.
(SL) – A new documentary claims Iconic Rapper Tupac Shakur knew who his assassin was, but law enforcement didn’t care to further the investigation.
His murder remains a mystery. But several specialty shows have pointed fingers at corrupt cops with gang affiliations for being responsible for both Tupac and Biggie’s death.
Tupac was gunned down on September 7, 1996, while driving through Las Vegas. Numerous people – including fellow New York rap hero Biggie Smalls, aka the Notorious BIG – were implicated in the death. Biggie would be killed almost 6 months to the day after Pac was killed.
Former LAPD detective Russell Poole believed both murders were orchestrated by Suge Knight. Poole who spent half of his career investigating the killings died suddenly in August 2015 while meeting with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s homicide investigators to discuss a cold case. Poole reportedly suffered a heart attack.
But the identity of Tupac’s killer has remained a mystery – because the cops didn’t care to look any further,
(SL) – It was a scene out of a movie. Dozens of police officers camped outside of Pop/R&B star Chris Brown’s mansion during a day long standoff in which some media outlets reported that the singer had ‘barricaded’ himself inside.
But really he was just waiting on his attorney Mark Geragos to arrive and for LAPD to issue a warrant. It all stemmed from a fraudulent ex-beauty queen who claimed to be at Brown’s house on business but had somehow found herself in his hot tub and around some jewelry that she was warned not to touch….and that’s where the drama ensued.
Baylee Curran who was stripped of her Miss California (Regional) title (after nude photos surfaced) and has yet to return her sash and crown to pageant officials who claim they’ve requested the items be returned several times, is also wanted in NY after she stole a girl’s $1000 LV purse and the contents inside which included cash and a wallet. Reportedly, after falsely accusing a few friends of infractions one that resulted in a restraining order, some of them are speaking out about Baylee’s ability to stretch the truth which appears to be what happened with Chris Brown.
Baylee claims that she became curious about a diamond necklace that was being presented among the group at Brown’s mansion and after an associate of Chris’ warned her not to touch the jewelry Chris ordered her to leave the house and even pointed a gun at her head to push the seriousness of her desired departure.
But in today’s world of technology it looks like a text message might clear Chris’ name.
Furthermore, Browns Attorney told ABC News: “There was a search that was done.
“They went in, and said they had a description of the piece of jewelry.
