TRUE CRIME SHOWCASE:

 

A 17 year-old schoolboy murdered a transgender escort after telling her that having sex with her made him feel suicidal, police say.

Tremon Hill, 17, is accused of shooting Dejanay Stanton, 24, (above) in the head, a month after he is said to have slept with the sex worker.

Hill and Stanton began talking, and met at a hotel in Chicago’s South Side later that day, where they are said to have had sex multiple times.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Hill claimed to be 18, and told Stanton that although he was attracted to her, he did not want to have sex with a transgender person.

He is said to have texted her saying that he had been having suicidal thoughts since their encounter, and asking her to delete photos he’d sent her.

Stanton did so, and agreed to meet Hill again.

On that day, Hill reportedly lured the vulnerable young woman to a secluded area in Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood, where he shot her dead.

Cell phone towers as well as surveillance cameras put him at the crime scene.

A search of Hill’s home also found the pants he had been filmed wearing on the day of Stanton’s murdered covered with ‘small red stains’, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

 

DENVER — Denver police officials released a chilling image of three masked people suspected of setting a fire that killed five Senegalese immigrants, including two young children.

 

Djibril Diol, 29, and Adja Diol, 23, were killed Aug. 5 alongside their 3-year-old daughter, Khadija. Djibril Diol’s sister, Hassan Diol, 25, and her infant daughter, Hawa Baye, also died in the fire.

The suspects were dressed in full white face masks and dark hoodies. They fled the area in a dark-colored, four-door sedan.

“That was my family. My everything,” Moussa Diol said as he struggled to maintain his composure. “It’s hard to really talk right now because I’m still heartbroken and so emotional right now, but it hurts. It hurts a lot just to wake up and lose your family like that.

 

“Nobody doesn’t deserve this. Nobody. No family deserves this. I’m going to miss them a lot. A lot.”

 

Some members of the Muslim community have pleaded for the investigation to move forward as a hate crime but city officials said earlier this month that it was too soon to determine the motive behind the fatal fire.

 

Authorities said the deadly fire broke out around 2:30 a.m. Aug. 5 at the family’s home at 5312 North Truckee St. in the Green Valley Ranch neighborhood. Denver fire officials said the fire was “heavily involved” when firefighters arrived.

 

Video recorded by multiple witnesses shows flames erupting from the home.

 

“I really hope they got outside,” a neighbor is heard saying in one video.

 

Neighbor Maria Mendoza told The Associated Press she awoke to noise and someone screaming, “Get the baby out! Get the baby out!” She said she ran to a window and saw flames and smoke pouring out of the home.

 

“I awoke my husband, and he ran outside to see if he could help. But there was nothing he could do. The fire was too big,” Mendoza said.

 

The first police officers to arrive at the scene attempted to get through the flames to rescue those still inside but were pushed back by the heat.

 

Three adults inside the house at the time of the fire were able to jump from a second-floor window and escape, police officials said. The rest of the family perished.

 

Chief Joe Montoya, division chief of investigations for the Denver Police Department, said detectives determined early in the investigation that the fire was intentionally set. Police and fire officials called in the ATF to assist in the probe.

 

This hate crime happened two months ago and still remains unsolved.

TINSEL CONFIDENTIAL:

 

Dancer Rudy Houston (a Blair Underwood look-a-like) is featured in both photos above.  He changed his name to Lana (2nd photo) after his transition.  Houston was featured in Janet Jackson videos and on the show "Solid Gold."

 

 

 

The real Gloria Allen is pictured (directly above).

 

Allen had the good fortune of being born into a family in which her parents recognized their son was "different" from a very young age and accepted him as a "her." Allen was the oldest of 14 children, and her parents told their kids as well as other family members to call Allen "sister."

 

When she turned 24 years old, she decided to live full time as a woman.

 

"My mother said, 'You sure?' and I discussed it with my father and grandparents and they accepted it," Allen said. "My mother smiled and said, 'You have to buy your own dresses. You can't wear mine.'"

 

Allen said her mother, grandmother and great-aunt helped guide her by showing her which styles of dresses were more complementary to her frame. Allen said she's 5 feet 9 inches tall and wears a size 10, making her a replica of her mother, a 1958 Jet magazine centerfold model.

 

"Before I left the house, I had to model my outfit for these women," Allen said. "If I didn't look right, they'd stop me. They'd say, 'Sister, you can't wear that.'"

 

"My great-aunt, God rest her soul — she lived to be 101 — she would say, 'Ladies wear a slip. Ladies carry a purse.' And she said you always had to have at least $5 in it, in case your date tries to get too familiar and then won't bring you home because you wouldn't let him do what he wanted to do."

 

Allen said the women also taught her how to apply makeup, starting the process with greasepaint, a heavier foundation used in show business for better coverage. And she learned other tips from older transgender women.

 

Allen, a former nurse, said that even with this type of direction, she wasn't sure she could pass as a woman. She did, however, and she knows passing is at the heart of what some young transgender men and women are trying to do but haven't yet mastered.

 

In her charm school she teaches her pupils how to apply makeup and take care of their skin and how to dress respectfully. She talks about why exercising and maintaining a healthy diet are important. There also are lessons in dining etiquette and the art of holding a conversation.

 

"You have to be well-read and you don't have to use profanity, either," Allen told the class at a recent meeting.

 

Several young transgender women sat around a table, listening and learning from Allen and one another.

 

"Some of you transgender girls sit down like men," Allen said as she walked around the class.

 

"Don't sit like that," she gently told one who crossed her legs. To another, she said it wasn't proper for her to brush her hair in public. Allen asked another to button her jacket to cover her exposed midriff.

 

The class talked about how other cultures handle transgender people and why it's important to take the proper amount of hormones in preparation for sexual reassignment surgery.

 

When a 19-year-old said she'd been doubling up on pills, Allen pleaded with her to stop.

 

"You're putting your body, your liver and kidneys, at risk," said Allen, who had reassignment surgery when she was 37. "You've been a boy for 19 years. You can't turn into a girl overnight. Be patient. I don't want you to hurt yourself."

 

Allen said she knows that charm school instructors might not typically talk about safe sex practices or the perils of abusing alcohol and drugs or even domestic abuse.

 

"But transgender people are abused by their partners at high rates, and no one talks about it," she said. "They may abuse drugs and alcohol to cope. They're ashamed, but the real shame is not doing something about it."

 

She said transgender people have dual identities that they're trying to learn and unlearn.

 

"It's not an easy journey, but I've been on it for a long time," she said. "The women in my family were fabulous teachers. I never had children, but I feel like I have them now."

 

 

Not only did L.A. Reid sell his entire publishing catalogue (162 songs) which includes records by Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton, TLC, Boyz II Men, Bobby Brown, etc. to Hipgnosis Songs for an undisclosed amount.

 

But Timberland & Dream also sold their publishing catalogues to the same company.

 

The company spent nearly $700 million to acquire 42 catalogues thus far.

On April 2, 1968, America watched as, for the first time, a white woman touched a black man’s arm on primetime television. The white woman was Petula Clark, the two-time Grammy-winning British singer with a slew of top 10 hits.

 

The black man was Harry Belafonte, the Grammy-winning American singer and civil-rights advocate whose signature tune, “The Banana Boat Song,” brought calypso music to a mainstream audience. That fleeting moment was controversial enough to prompt an executive with the Chrysler Corporation, the program’s sponsor, to protest vehemently—turning what one critic would eventually call “a stylish, sophisticated musical hour” into an inter-racial cause célèbre.

To this day, Clark cannot believe that “the incident” caused such a “rumpus.” She didn’t invite Belafonte to appear on the special in order to make a cultural statement: “As far as I was concerned, he was just a great artist,” she says now. “I’m a very organic performer. There are no big statements. Things just happen.”

Director Steve Binder says: Harry Belafonte was their first and only choice for a guest star. He did not do a lot of television at the time.

 

The enthusiasm was short-lived. Within 15 minutes of that phone call, another executive called Binder to inform him that Doyle Lott, the advertising manager for the Plymouth Division, objected to a black man appearing on the show. Binder responded, “If you try to replace Belafonte, I’m going to go on national television and say exactly what you just said.”

 

An hour later came another call, and a compromise proffered. Belafonte could stay on the show if a white guest of equal stature also appeared. Among the names suggested were Milton Berle and Ray Bolger, best known as the Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz. Binder refused, and flew to Detroit to meet with Glenn E. White, Plymouth’s general manager. Lott was also in attendance. According to Binder, White asked, “Is Petula happy?” Binder said, “Absolutely. We have one of the greatest guest stars in the world. I want to move forward.” With that, Binder remembers, White turned to Lott and said, “As long as Petula and Steve are happy, we shouldn’t interfere.” That’s when Lott ”jumped out of his seat, big smile, and says, ‘I’ll see you at the Emmys, Steve.’ ”

 

But when Petula touched Harry while singing a duet, Binder recalls, “You could hear an explosion coming out of the client’s green room. Doyle Lott had left the building. “He doesn’t want that shown on her special,” Binder was informed.

“I didn’t hear all the rumpus that was going on upstairs in the control area,” Clark says. “Touching his arm was just instinctive because we felt strongly about the subject. I just didn’t think about it.”

For his part, Belafonte thought there had just been a technical glitch. He did not think the touch was problematic: “Quite the contrary,” he says. “I was quite pleased. That song, if I remember, was the last thing we shot. There was an enormous sense of release that we had pulled this off without a hitch. It was one guy—Doyle Lott—who said we had to re-shoot what we had just done. We were nonplussed as to what was the problem.” NBC, alerted to the controversy, called Binder to say the network would back him (“That was a great phone call to get,” he says). With that, Binder and Wolff rushed to the studio basement to confront the editor and order him to keep the take where Clark touched Belafonte’s arm—and to erase the others so they could not be used in the broadcast.

Somehow—Binder doesn’t recall what did it—word of the controversy got out early, resulting in breathless pre-broadcast news coverage. “Incident at TV Taping Irks Belafonte,” said a March 7 headline in The New York Times. The article quoted a statement from White: ”If there was any incident . . . it resulted solely from the reaction of a single individual and by no means reflects the Plymouth Division’s attitude or policy on such matters.” Lott’s Detroit office also issued a statement: “I was tired. I over-reacted to the staging, not to any feeling of discrimination.” Binder remembers hearing that Belafonte was about to tell America to boycott Plymouth on The Tonight Show; he called the singer to tell him it wasn’t the car company’s fault, and reminded Belafonte of his conversation with White.

On March 10, the Times reported that Lott had been “relieved of his responsibilities.” (Lott died in 2006 at the age of 88.)

Despite, or perhaps because of, the brouhaha, Petula received good ratings and reviews. The Seattle Times called it “simply smashing.” Newsday hailed Clark as “the nicest thing to happen to television and viewers in ages.” Reviewers dismissed the touch out of hand: “the friendly gesture would have gone unnoticed by most viewers had it not caused an advance incident,” the Milwaukee Journal said. (Binder recalls a less enthusiastic review from the Thunderbolt, the official newspaper of the Ku Klux Klan, that he happened to see when he was in Georgia working on another project.)

In the aftermath of the special and the coverage that “the touch” generated, Belafonte was compelled to write a piece for The New York Times that ran on April 21.

FORENSIC SUPERSTAR:

 

In my opinion, forensic sculptures are the real superstars in forensics. What they do is simply amazing and extraordinary.

 

Francis Augustus Bender (June 16, 1941 – July 28, 2011) was an forensic artist and fine artist. He made facial reconstructions of the dead based on their skeletons (skulls), and of fugitives based on outdated photographs, with his reconstructions showing how they might look in the present day. He primarily worked in clay and then cast his pieces into plaster and painted them, but he also created age-progression drawings of fugitives using pastels. His most famous facial reconstruction case was that of John Emil List, whose case was shown on America's Most Wanted. Bender's work led to List's capture.

 

Betty Pat Gatliff, also a forensic artist used this same technique with King Tut's skull to show how he looked when he was alive.

 

Bender originally began his forensic work when, impoverished, he worked out a deal with the Philadelphia coroner to be allowed to study some of their unknown dead bodies in an effort to improve his sculpting skills.

 

He also created life-sized monuments in bronze for the African Burial Ground National Monument in New York (using three of the actual skulls found on the site to give faces to the unknown slaves who had been buried there).

 

 

Police could not identify the bones that were found so the medical examiner's office-which had determined that the case was a homicide-handed the cranium over to forensic sculptor Frank Bender.

 

Bender created a bust (above) from the skull.

 

Yet no one had identified the young woman's remains for years, until Atkinson's great-aunt, Lois Brown, went to a Bender art exhibit at the Mutter Museum in Center City.

 

The lady was identified as Rosella "Ro Ro" Atkinson who had been missing and presumed dead for three years.

 

Lois Brown said: "I looked at the bust in the paper and I didn't really recognize it," Brown testified. "I walked to the Mutter Museum . . . I went back to that bust that was in the paper. I kept going back to the bust.

 

"Then it hit me that I began to see the bone structure of that face," she said. "I saw my mother and my sister, which was Rosella's grandmother. And I was convinced that was her."

 

She called Atkinson's mother, Freedeina Carney.

 

"I even took my kids," to the museum.

 

"We looked and we studied [the bust] and we looked at it, and it hit us all at the same time and we just broke down and cried because we could see her. It looked like her."

 

Dental records confirmed the horrifying suspicion. But even after the bones had a name, the killer's identity remained a mystery.

 

It seemed to be a cold case with no hope of being solved.

 

Rosella's killer Brian Hall (a family friend), plagued by guilt, went to police and confessed.

 

Bender was a founding member of the Vidocq Society.

 

The Vidocq Society is a members-only crime-solving club that meets on the third Thursday of every month in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Vidocq Society is named for Eugène François Vidocq, the ground-breaking 19th century French detective who helped police by using the psychology of the criminal to solve "cold case" homicides. Vidocq was a former criminal himself, and used his knowledge of the criminal mind to look at murder from the psychological perspective of the perpetrator. At meetings, Vidocq Society Members (VSMs) listen to law enforcement officials from around the world who bring in cold cases for review.

VSMs are forensic professionals; current and former FBI profilers, homicide investigators, scientists, psychologists, prosecutors and coroners who use their experience to provide new insights for investigations that have gone cold. Members are selected by committee invitation only, pay a $100 annual fee, and commit to attend at least one meeting per year.

The Society was formed in 1990 by William Fleisher, Richard Walter, and Frank Bender. It solved its first case in 1991, clearing an innocent man of involvement in the murder of Huey Cox in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Vidocq will only consider cases that meet certain requirements: they must be unsolved deaths more than two years old, the victims cannot have been involved in criminal activity such as prostitution or drug dealing, and the case must be formally presented to them by the appropriate law enforcement agency. The Society does not charge for its services, and pays for the travel expenses of the law enforcement agents who come to present cases.

The Society was chronicled in a 2002 episode of The New Detectives entitled "Collective Justice", and was also a plot point in the finale of the 2007–08 season of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. In 2010 it became the subject of a book, The Murder Room by Michael Capuzzo. In A Question of Guilt, a book in the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys Super Mystery series, Nancy Drew and Frank and Joe Hardy, working on opposite sides of the same case, approach the Vidocq Society for help.
