Ex-Roommate Made Mom Watch Him Stab & Decapitate Her Children to “Punish” Her for Not Having Any Money or Valuables to Steal

Horrific new details of a triple homicide involving a young Arkansas mother and her two children have emerged, including how one of their attackers forced the woman to watch as he slaughtered her children in front of her before stabbing her to death.

The disturbing information was revealed in court on Wednesday (Oct. 16) during opening statements in the trial of 26-year-old Michael Ivory Collins for the brutal slayings of 5-year-old A’Laylaih Fisher and 3-year-old Elijah Fisher, and their mother, 24-year-old Mariah Cunningham.

Prosecutors said Collins and his brother, 23-year-old William Alexander, broke into the family’s apartment in December 2017 to rob them, but Collins ended up killing Cunningham and her young children when they weren’t able to get the money and valuables they’d come there for.

Collins and Cunningham were former roommates after being introduced to one another by another brother of Collins, Colby, whose ID was found in the apartment, but was ruled out by police as a suspect.

Detectives said Cunningham let Collins live with her for a period of time because he needed a place to stay in Little Rock.

At some point, Collins became convinced that Cunningham had more money and valuables than she actually did, and when he and Alexander came to rob her, he became angry and decided to “punish” the woman for not having anything valuable to steal.

A’Laylaih was the first to die, senior deputy prosecutor Barbara Mariani said.

Alexander held Cunningham down and made her watch while Collins stabbed A’Laylaih around two dozen times before attempting to saw her head off.

The brothers also forced Cunningham to watch them stab Elijah 14 times before decapitating the boy.

The two men then stabbed Cunningham to death, and left, taking only the family’s TV and an Xbox game console with them.

The pair also stole Cunningham’s Honda Accord, but abandoned it two miles away from the scene of the crime after realizing that the power steering didn’t work.

 

Cunningham and her children’s bodies were found by the woman’s 78-year-old grandmother, who went to the apartment to check on them after Cunningham didn’t return her phone calls.

Police also found bleach on the bodies and a steak knife thought to be the murder weapon in the bathtub.

Cunningham’s oldest child, her then 8-year-old daughter Cheyanne, wasn’t at home at the time of the incident and was spared.

Prosecutors told jurors that based on surveillance footage, it took 20 minutes to “annihilate” the mother and her two children.

Five days after the murders, authorities located Collins at a home in Chicago wearing the same blood-splattered shoes he had on while committing the crime. DNA testing revealed the blood matched all three victims.

Despite having no witnesses, prosecutors were able to use material evidence to present their case, and the testimony of Collins’ former cellmate helped nail the conviction.

47-year-old Marino Bernard Scott, who shared a cell with Collins for 30 days, reached out to investigators six months after the killings to volunteer as a witness and explained details about the murders that only the person who committed the crime would know.

Scott said Collins told him he confessed the murders to him because he kept seeing the woman he killed in his dreams, and he was also afraid of the death penalty and DNA evidence that would link him to the crime.

“I didn’t know if any of it was true,” Scott said when the defense asked him if he thought Collins had really committed the crimes.

A correctional officer who oversaw Collins when he was in jail also testified, telling jurors that during a disturbance in the jail, Collins screamed to deputies threatening to remove him from his cell that he’d already killed three people and nothing else mattered, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported.

The jury deliberated for less than 30 minutes on Thursday before convicting Collins on charges of aggravated robbery and capital murder. He’ll spend the rest of his life in jail.

Prosecutors initially sought the death penalty, but decided to waive that request at the start of the trial, opting for life in prison without parole instead.

Collins’ younger brother, William Alexander, is scheduled to stand trial for his role in the killings in November.

Is This Your King?! Chadwick Boseman Confused Elijah Cummings for John Lewis in Social Media Tribute

It’s one thing for racist white folks to say that all black people look alike, but for the man who played the Black Panther himself, T’Challa, it’s a real slap in the face that he can’t tell Elijah Cummings and John Lewis apart.

Elijah Cummings, the longstanding Congressman from Maryland who was among the representatives in the House leading the impeachment charge against President Trump, died unexpectedly on Thursday (Oct. 17).

The internet swelled with tributes, and celebrities and average Americans alike took to social media to pay their respects to the distinguished politician.

Chadwick Boseman was among them, but there was something wrong with his post.

Two of the three photos he posted were not of Elijah Cummings, but were instead of John Lewis, the Congressman from Georgia who is famous for his role in the Civil Rights Movement and for marching alongside MLK Jr.

The internet took notice and promptly let King T’Challa know that he needed to check his Vibranium and come again.

For the record, THIS is Elijah Cummings:

This is NOT Elijah Cummings, but Joe Lewis:

This is also John Lewis:

Thankfully, after Twitter got him together, Chadwick deleted his tweet and posted a correct tweet that featured only a photo of Elijah Cummings.

Nivea Says She & Lauren London Became BFFs After Finding Out They Were Pregnant By Lil Wayne at the Same Time

Youth is wasted on the young and sometimes, aging is not kind to people. Nivea, the urban R&B pop star from the early 2000s, is one of those people who time seems to have worn out like a Converse sneaker.

In a multi-part interview with VladTV, Nivea recounted her LONG history, including how she parted with ways with Jive Records after she got pregnant, dated and partnered with The-Dream, and then how she reunited with Lil’ Wayne and ended up pregnant with his child at the same time as Lauren London, one of his other baby mamas.

Vlad, asked with shock and awe, “How did you take him having two other kids outside of the relationship?”

“If this occurred before us and we’re just now gettin’ back to it, why wouldn’t I accept that son if you’re telling me you wanna marry me? So, that was that,” said Nivea.

“The next one though, which is why the relationship ended while I was carrying our son cause I couldn’t take that….I thought I could! I’m a different type of woman. I was like you know what? You love me, f**k it! But I realized that’s not what I wanted, so I let it go.”

Vlad, who was determined to be messy, pressed Nivea to clarify if Lauren London’s pregnancy was the straw that broke the camel’s back for her.

“It was very crushing. Then she and I became very close ironically,” she said. “We were two people going through something that was along the lines of humiliating.

“And it felt like who else could you share this oddly unique situation with? So we called each other to get information cause she and I were both previous relationships of his in our younger years as well.”

In some twisted way, Nivea still manages to praise Wayne by saying the fact that all of his baby mamas get along is some kind of “testament” to the kind of man he is. What kind of man is that exactly? A rolling stone?

You can watch Nivea’s rambling, uncomfortable interview with Vlad where she addresses this and more below.

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Star Sas Arrested for Allegedly Trying to Pimp Underage Girls

If you haven’t kept up with the heart-breaking case of Cyntoia Brown, who was recently freed from prison after she killed one of her johns in self-defense, then you’re missing out on the most recent and popular stories on the horrors and struggles of sex-trafficked women in America.

It appears that Sas, better known as Love and Hip Hop Atlanta Karen “KK” King’s son and Scrapp DeLeon’s half-brother, was not moved by Cyntoia’s plight though as he decided to try his hand at pimping teenaged girls, according to a report from 11 Alive.

Sas, whose real name is Lyndon Smith, along with his co-conspirator, James Ruffin, was busted and charged by DeKalb County Police with attempting to travel with two teenaged girls out of state “for the purpose of prostitution.”

Ruffin was hit with a slew of other serious charges, including keeping a place of prostitution, interference with custody and violation of computer porn and child exploitation act.

Reports from police say the two teenage girls were safely recovered from Sas and Ruffin’s clutches.

Family of 6 Found Living in Farmhouse Basement With Mysterious Old Man Waiting for the World to End

RTV Drenthe, a Netherlands newspaper, reported that a farmhouse was hiding away a family of six (five siblings aged 18-25 plus their father) and a 58-year old mystery man living in a basement waiting for the “end of times” to come.

The family believed the rest of humanity had died off and they’d been simply waiting for their turn since 2010, police said.

Neighbors had no idea anyone else but the mysterious old man lived on the property in Buitenhuizerweg in Ruinerworld.

This all came to light Sunday evening (Oct. 15) shortly after the eldest sibling, aged 25, escaped and managed to find a nearby bar to get help.

Bar owner Chris Westerbeek described the young man as having “long hair” and “a dirty beard.” He said the man was wearing “old clothes” and “looked confused.”

“He said he’d never been to school and hadn’t been to the barber for nine years,” Westberbeek told local news reporters.

“He ordered 5 beers and drank them. Then I had a chat with him and he revealed he had run away and needed help… Then we called the police. He said he had brothers and sisters who lived at the farm. He said he was the oldest and wanted to end the way they were living.”

Local authorities were immediately notified of the situation, and while searching the secluded farm, police found a hidden staircase that led to the basement where the family had been living.

That’s also when police also found the 58-year-old man, who was in bed and appeared to have suffered a stroke years ago.

Police eventually discovered the mystery man (known as “Josef B the Austrian” by locals) was in no way related to the family of six nor did he own the farmhouse.

“Josef B the Austrian” was later arrested after he allegedly refused to cooperate with the police investigation, however, it wasn’t clear what crime(s) he was charged with.

Sources said the family didn’t have any contact with the outside world and lived off a vegetable garden and farm animals; and if needed, Josef would go into town for supplies in his Volvo. 

Mayor Roger de Groot said during a press conference that investigators believe that the siblings’ mother died years ago before they moved into the farmhouse.

“For the moment, the police have a lot of unanswered questions,” he said, adding that most of the family had no legal documentation and didn’t appear to be registered anywhere.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” Mayor de Groot told local reporters. He said that the siblings were in “a safe place” now.

According to the Algemeen Dagblad newspaper, the farmhouse was being rented by a man.

The property’s owners, Klaas and Alida Rooze, claimed to be shocked by the disturbing discovery.

“We knew absolutely nothing of this. We had rented the house for years to an individual and now we learn that a man was living there with children. We have no idea who this can be,” they told the local outlet.

Police said their investigation is focusing on keeping the family safe and gathering more information about what exactly happened. They said they’re also working to determine if the family had been held against their will.

Does This Viral Video Show Married Pastor David E. Wilson Eating the Box of a Woman Who Isn’t His Wife?

Whew, chile! The pastor out here using his tongue not to pray for people or preach the word of God, but to pleasure his side pieces.

Or at least that’s what these internet streets are saying.

A video that (allegedly) shows Texas Pastor David E. Wilson of BibleWay Ministries & World Out Reach, Inc. (or at the very least someone who strongly resembles him) pleasuring a woman who doesn’t appear to be his wife has gone viral on social media.

We’re not sure if the video was edited or what, but the man goes on for damn near a full minute without taking even taking a breath, taking the phrase “speaking in tongues” to a whole new level.

At one point, the guy even briefly looks up to the camera, which means he knows he was being recorded. (Not a good look, Pastuh!)

The clip, accompanied by the caption “Pastor Wilson out here doing the lords work,” was originally shared on Twitter Monday afternoon (Oct. 16) and has since been re-posted all over the internet.

Of course we’re not going to re-post the EXTREMELY NSFW footage here, but it’s out there if you’re willing to look for it.

Meanwhile, Twitter has been having a field day with the footage.

“The Pastor out here speaking in tongues,” one Twitter user joked.

“Pastor bout to have every woman coming to church next Sunday to see him,” joked another.

“Dam what church is this how do I become a member ASAP pastor knows what he’s doing tho amen,” a woman responded. “Like I’m so freakin serious if anybody knows this pastaaaaaaaaaa tell him look me up I need a healing ASAP”

Elijah Cummings’ Wife Says the Late Congressman Worked Tirelessly “Until His Last Breath”

The wife of Rep. Elijah Cummings says her husband worked tirelessly to represent his people, even up until his very “last breath” when he succumbed to longtime health complications at 68 years old.

Cummings not only represented Maryland’s 7th District for more than two decades, but he also lived in the inner-city district impacted by poverty and crime up until his death early Thursday morning (Oct. 17).

He was hospitalized last month and underwent some sort of medical procedure.

According to a statement from his office, the Congressman passed away from “complications concerning longstanding health challenges.”

Cummings’ wife and chairwoman of the Maryland Democratic Party, Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, released her own statement praising her husband for faithfully serving his people.

“Congressman Cummings was an honorable man who proudly served his district and the nation with dignity, integrity, compassion and humility,” Mrs. Cummings said of her late husband.

“He worked until his last breath because he believed our democracy was the highest and best expression of our collective humanity and that our nation’s diversity was our promise, not our problem. It’s been an honor to walk by his side on this incredible journey. I loved him deeply and will miss him dearly.”

In addition to passionately representing the district he was born and raised in, Cummings was also chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and used his role to defend the Obama administration against Republicans.

He also launched his own investigation into the Trump administration after the Democrats won the majority of the House of Representatives last year and was a fierce opponent of Trump’s immigration policies, especially the one that’s separating children from families, calling it inhumane.

Trump and Cummings publicly clashed back in July when the President called him a “brutal bully” and attacked the City of Baltimore, referring to it as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess” and a “dangerous and filthy place.”

 

Trump also tweeted: “Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States. No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!”

Cummings, being the man of poise that he is, calmly responded to Trump directly, pointing out that Trump has largely ignored the Congressman’s efforts to improve that very same district he called “filthy” and “disgusting.”

“Mr. President, I go home to my district daily. Each morning, I wake up, and I go and fight for my neighbors. It is my constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the Executive Branch. But, it is my moral duty to fight for my constituents,” Cummings tweeted.

“Just yesterday, I held a hearing on the skyrocketing prices of prescription drugs and the financial hardships that families across the nation, and in Baltimore, are facing.

“Mr. President, we can address this together. Two years ago, I went to the White House to ask you to endorse my bill to let the government negotiate directly for lower drug prices.

“You told me then that you supported the legislation and that you would work with me to make it happen. I took you at your word.”

After spending most of the summer attacking Cummings, Trump took the time to honor the Congressman Thursday morning after his death.

“My warmest condolences to the family and many friends of Congressman Elijah Cummings,” he tweeted. “I got to see first hand the strength, passion and wisdom of this highly respected political leader. His work and voice on so many fronts will be very hard, if not impossible, to replace!”

Cuba Gooding Jr. Allegedly Asked a Woman He’d Just Met to Sit on His Face & Pee in His Mouth

After 14 women accused Cuba Gooding Jr. of sexual misconduct, prosecutors revealed details of an alleged encounter between the actor and one of his victims.

In new court papers filed on Tuesday (Oct. 15), prosecutors said Gooding boldly asked a woman he’d never met before to sit on his face and urinate in his mouth.

According to the docs, the film star approached a female stranger at a bar in Los Angeles in February 2011 and grabbed her arm as she walked past him to go to the bathroom.

The papers say Gooding “then placed his hand inside the woman’s blouse and squeezed her bare breast while he stated, in substance, ‘Sit on my face, pee in my mouth.”

After pushing Gooding away and telling him that he was “nasty,” the woman claims the actor grabbed her arm a second time when she walked past him again.

The docs say when Gooding grabbed the woman’s arm again, someone told him to leave her alone, and he said, once again: “I want her to sit on my face and pee in my mouth.”

Prosecutors said this allegation is one of many against the actor dating back as far as 2011 and spanning across four states: New York, California, Texas and Mexico.

In 2013, Gooding allegedly grabbed a woman’s butt and licked her neck without consent at the Chatwal Hotel in Manhattan.

The following year, at Cafe Havana in Malibu, California, the movie star walked up to a female stranger, reached under her skirt and touched her vagina over her underwear, court documents state.

Gooding appeared in court Tuesday after turning himself in to New York police to face a four-count indictment, including a forcible touching charge and a charge of sexual abuse in the third degree from a woman who said he pinched her buttocks without content at a Las Vegas nightclub in October 2018.

When the woman confronted him about it on the spot, she said Cuba told her he’d only pinched her on the back. She also claims the actor made a “sexually suggestive remark” to her earlier that same night.

The indictment also includes 12 allegations, however, Cuba’s not being charged for those. Prosecutors just want to show a pattern of his bad behavior.

Among the 12 allegations includes one from a woman who says Cuba, while at a restaurant in Long Beach, California, squeezed her butt and told her “You’ve got a good piece of ass.”

Another woman said back in 2006, the actor bit her shoulder a couple of times at a bar in Hollywood. She said he also humped her leg and tried to lift up her shirt.

The Oscar-winning Jerry Maguire actor pleaded not guilty to the charges and denies all of the allegations.

“This is a typical scenario in which random people come out of the woodwork to accuse a celebrity who has already been charged,” Gooding’s attorney, Mark Heller, said in response to women’s claims.

“They have no credibility because Cuba was not charged with any of those allegations.”

Gooding’s legal woes began earlier this year after he was accused of groping an unidentified woman on June 9th at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar and Lounge atop the Moxy NYC Times Square Hotel.

Grainy surveillance footage from the night in question appears to show Cuba reaching over his girlfriend and touching the woman’s chest area.

However, Cuba and his people are adamant that he touched her hand and NOT her breasts.

For what it’s worth, Cuba’s girlfriend, Claudine De Niro (the estranged wife of Robert De Niro’s son) backs his account of the incident.

Prosecutors have asked the courts to allow the new accusations to be considered at trial.

“Defendant’s past behavior shows that he routinely approaches women while at bars or nightclubs with whom he has had limited or no prior interaction, and touches them inappropriately,” prosecutors argued in court documents.

“Looking at these instances, it is clear that the defendant’s actions are intentional, rather than accidental, that he does not mistakenly believe the acts are consensual.”

Nipsey Hussle’s Family Granted Guardianship of His Daughter Emani Over “Unfit” Mom Tanisha Foster

Nipsey Hussle’s immediate family members are now officially the legal guardians to the slain rapper’s 10-year-old daughter Emani following a monthslong custody battle

A Los Angeles judge granted Hussle’s family’s request to obtain legal guardianship of Emani Tuesday (Oct. 15) over her birth other, Tanisha Foster, who the family said was unfit to raise Emani on her own.

RELATED: Nipsey Hussle’s Family Says Tanisha Foster is an Unfit Mom Who Doesn’t Deserve Custody of ANY of Her Children, Especially Emani

The courts said Nipsey’s family provided “sufficient evidence” for their petition, and as a result, his sister Samantha Smith, brother Sam Asghedom, and mother Angelique Smith, have been appointed as Emani’s legal guardians.

Additionally, Lauren London was given the approval to manage the finances of her 3-year-old son Kross, who is reported to inherit half of Nipsey’s $2 million estate, while Kross’ sister Emani will get the other half. (FYI: There was never an issue between Lauren and Nipsey’s family; this is just a formality.)

Back in April, Nipsey’s sister Samantha filed paperwork to obtain legal custody of Emani, saying that she’d been taking care of her niece since her brother’s murder the month prior.

Samantha noted in her petition that Nipsey was Emani’s primary caregiver before his March 31st shooting death, and she helped take care of Emani.

Samantha said that giving her family primary custody would “ensure the continued stability for Emani,” unlike her mother, Tanisha, who she referred to as negligent.

In July, Nip and Samantha’s brother, Samiel Asghedom (aka “Blacc Sam”), as well as their mother, Angelique Smith, joined the petition as proposed co-guardians, saying there were a “constant and strong presence in Emani’s life.”

Days later, Foster filed court documents “strongly” opposing the guardianship petitions from Nipsey’s family.

“I am the mother of Emani Asghedom and there is no good reason my rights as her mother should be taken away from me,” Foster wrote.

“Emani and I are inseparable. I am and will always be her mother,” she said. “I love her with all my heart. I know that she misses me and is wondering why I am not there.”

Tanisha claimed that she and Nipsey shared parenting responsibilities, and he always made sure she was taken care of by doing things like setting her up in an apartment and giving her money to cover other necessities.

But after he died, she said she was forced to rely on “the goodwill of family and friends” for food, clothing, shelter and transportation.

RELATED: Nipsey Hussle’s Baby Mama Says She’s Broke & Homeless After Nipsey’s Family Cut Her Off Financially

“No one seems to care about the impact Ermias’ death has had upon me and Emani,” she said in the legal docs. “I have been maligned as being an unfit mother, a golddigger, and someone not worthy of any voice in the matter of my daughter and her future.”

Tanisha claimed she had “no financial means of my own to care for myself or Emani” and that she was “was dependent upon” Nipsey to get by.

“When he suddenly died, I came home one day to discover that the locks had been changed,” she said. “His family is not willing to pay the rent. I am still in the process of putting all of my personal belongings into a storage facility.”

Tanisha added, referring to the rapper by his birth name, Ermias Asghedom: “I realize that my previous lifestyle with Ermias is no longer how things will be for Emani and l. Because of the various challenges I face, I will need time to get things together for the two of us.”

Foster’s lawyer told the court in August that she had two monitored visits with Emani that went “very well,” and he said they also attended grief counseling.

“She is making progress towards gainful employment and establishing a stable residence,” the attorney, Larry Lewellyn, told the judge of Foster.

Boxer Patrick Day Dead at 27 From Brain Injuries He Suffered After Brutal Knockout Loss

Professional boxer Patrick Day died Wednesday (Oct. 16) at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, four days after he was violently knocked out in a boxing match with Charles Conwell over the weekend. He was 27 years old.

Day (whose record was 17-4-1) was knocked down a total of three times—once in the fourth round, again in the eighth and also in the tenth (the KO)—by the currently unbeaten 21-year-old Conwell during Saturday’s bout at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago.

Via ESPN:

Although Conwell was clearly winning the fight, Day was competitive in many of the rounds. However, in the 10th round, Conwell landed two rights and a left hook that knocked out Day.

When Day went down, the back of his head slammed onto the canvas, and referee Celestino Ruiz immediately stopped the bout without a count at 1 minute, 46 seconds.

Day was immediately surrounded by medical personnel and within minutes was taken out of the ring on a stretcher and to an ambulance.

Day never regained consciousness. At one point he had a seizure and then lapsed into a coma before undergoing emergency brain surgery.

Members of Day’s family flew to Chicago on Sunday morning to join manager/trainer Joe Higgins and Alex Dombroff, who works for DiBella, in keeping vigil, but the situation was dire and doctors gave Day little chance for survival.

On Wednesday, surrounded his parents, other family members, Higgins and close friends, Day was disconnected from the machines that had been keeping him alive.

Day’s promoter, Lou DiBella, issued a statement that read in part: “He was a son, brother, and good friend to many. Pat’s kindness, positivity, and generosity of spirit made a lasting impression with everyone he met.

“Patrick Day didn’t need to box. He came from a good family, he was smart, educated, had good values and had other avenues available to him to earn a living.

“He chose to box, knowing the inherent risks that every fighter faces when he or she walks into a boxing ring. Boxing is what Pat loved to do. It’s how he inspired people and it was something that made him feel alive.”

“Many people live much longer than Patrick’s 27 years, wondering if they made a difference or positively affected their world. This was not the case for Patrick Day when he left us. Rest in peace and power, Pat, with the angels.”

Two days before Day’s death, his last opponent Charles Conwell expressed his remorse over the situation in a heartfelt letter he shared via Instagram.

“I never meant for this to happen to you,” Conwell wrote. “All I ever wanted to do was win. If I could take it all back I would. No one deserves for this to happen to them.

“I replay the fight over and over in my head thinking what if this never happened and why did it happen to you. I can’t stop thinking about it myself.

“I prayed for you so many times and shedded so many tears because I couldn’t even imagine how my family and friends would feel. I see you everywhere I go and all I hear is wonderful things about you.

“I thought about quitting boxing but I know that’s not what you would want I know that you were a fighter at heart so I decided not to but to fight and win a world title because that’s what you wanted and [that’s] what I want so I’ll use you as motivation every day and make sure I always leave it all in the ring every time. #ChampPatrickDay”

View this post on Instagram

This is my last time speaking on the situation because of this being a sensitive topic not only for his family and friends but for myself and the sport of boxing. Dear Patrick Day, I never meant for this to happen to you. All I ever wanted to do was win. If I could take it all back I would no one deserves for this to happen to them. I replay the fight over and over in my head thinking what if this never happened and why did it happen to you.
