Screen Shot 2021 01 14 at 11.00.16 AM

A 53-year-old investment manager who was suspected to have participated in the Trump-powered riots at Capitol Hill was found dead after an apparent suicide.

Christopher Stanton Georgia was found dead in his Alpharetta, Georgia home on Saturday, according to the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office. The regional portfolio manager at BB&T Bank was found dead from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Family members on the scene were described by police as ‘extremely distressed’ in a police report. Officers also removed two semi-automatic SKS rifles from Georgia’s home, the report added.

According to documents from the Superior Court of DC, Georgia had been charged with attempting to “enter certain property, that is, the United States Capitol Grounds, against the will of the United States Capitol Police.”

So far, at least 82 people have been arrested and more than 55 have been charged over the Capitol Hill Riots. Hundreds more are being hunted by the authorities but are yet to be found, including 25 people who are being investigated on terrorism charges.

Screen Shot 2021 01 13 at 9.14.09 AM

According to several confirmed reports, actor Dustin Diamond, who is known as “Screech” from the 90s sitcom Saved By The Bell, was hospitalized in Florida over the weekend and his medical team is afraid that it might be cancer ailing the veteran actor.

His doctors are running on a series of tests including a biopsy to find the issue, however, because of Diamond’s family history with cancer, they’re really concerned that might be the case for the Saved By The Bell star.

Diamond played the famous Screech character for four seasons but was not brought on board for the reboot of the sitcom on Peacock. None of his former cast members have heard from Diamond since the show’s relaunch.

Supreme Court Approves First Federal Execution Of Female Inmate In Almost 70 Years

Screen Shot 2021 01 13 at 8.49.00 AM

According to a confirmed report from The New York Post, the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the execution of Lisa Montgomery, the killer who strangled Bobbie Jo Stinnett in Missouri in 2004 and removed her unborn baby from her womb. She was sentenced to death in 2007 and was executed by lethal injection last night, becoming the first woman executed by the federal government in over six decades.

Even though her attorneys argued that Montgomery suffered from acute mental illness, the Supreme Court’s midnight ruling lifted the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that had temporarily given Montgomery a stay of execution.

Montgomery was put to death shortly after midnight at U.S.P. Terre Haute in Indiana last night. She was 52 years old.

Montgomery became the first female to be executed by the U.S. government in 67 years and only the fourth to be executed by the United States in total.

Today in Hip-Hop History: The L.O.X. Dropped Their Debut Album ‘Money, Power & Respect’ 23 Years Ago

tumblr pl96luv1ua1t1yehoo1 500

On this date in 1998, Sheek Louch, Styles P., and Jadakiss, who are better known as the rap trio The L.O.X. (Living Off Experience), dropped their debut album on then-Puff Daddy’s steadily growing Bad Boy label. Following in the footsteps of artists like Craig Mack and Notorious B.I.G., the Yonkers collective had to go the extra length to prove themselves worthy to carry the Bad Boy legacy and that they have done and continue to do.

With production on this project from the likes of Swizz Beatz, D. Dot, Dame Grease and Mr. Combs himself, there was very little chance that this project flop. Even with the shiny suits, the lyrical content and dexterity were on point from all three members, solidifying their slots as lyrical legends in their own rights coming into the new millennium. Tracks like “If You Think I’m Jiggy” and the album’s epic title track were both perfect fusions of street anthems with crossover appeal, which allowed the LOX a fanbase on both sides of the mainstream “boundary”.

Thanks to Diddy, D-Block and the entire Bad Boy staff who helped to put together this timeless classic!
