Veteran ABC Radio newscaster George Weber has been found dead in his Brooklyn, N.Y., apartment in what police believe was a homicide.Police responded to a missing person call at 9 a.m. Sunday and found Weber, 50, in his apartment with a wound to his neck, according to a police report. Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene and pronounced him dead.

An investigation into Weber’s death is ongoing and no arrests have been made.

“We are shocked and deeply saddened by the death of our colleague and friend George Weber who was the victim of what police have deemed a homicide at his home in Brooklyn,” said Steve Jones, vice president and general manager of ABC News Radio.

“An investigation has been launched by NYPD and we have been assisting them,” he added. “Our condolences and prayers go out to George’s family and friends at this very difficult time.”

According to The New York Post, there were no signs of forced entry into Weber’s apartment, but a police source said the bathtub spigot was running and neighbors said the apartment had been ransacked.

“George Weber was a lifelong fan of radio,” Jones said in his statement. “He was a consummate journalist

with a successful radio career in New York at WABC, Los Angeles at KTLK and KMPC, San Francisco at KGO radio and Denver at KOA radio, among others.

“While in New York, George was part of the highly successful ‘Curtis and Kuby’ WABC morning show where he remained until early 2008,” Jones added. “It was then that he joined ABC News Radio as a freelance anchor. His last newscast was on Sunday, March 15.”

Weber’s blog was last updated Friday morning with a post detailing his past bouts with bed bugs and praising Mayor Bloomberg for creating a Bed Bug Advisory Council.

A huge crocodile knocked over a canoe in a southern Philippine lake and decapitated a 10-year-old girl, police said.

The girl and a classmate were on their way to their floating school on Mihaba Lake in Agusan del Sur province when the crocodile bumped the boat, causing it to capsize, Bunawan town police officer Melchor Danuco said yesterday.

The attack happened on Saturday but it wasn’t until Monday that rescuers found the girl’s headless body floating on the lake.

The classmate was rescued by a man escorting the pair in another boat, said Ruel Hipulan, head of the private group that runs the school in the remote town.

“It’s a monster crocodile,” Hipulan said, adding that officials were hunting the animal following the attack.

Police said that, based on accounts of villagers, the crocodile might be as long as 7 metres, which is huge, even for the large salt water crocodiles known to inhabit the lake.

Attacks are rare. But the lake’s waters have been swollen for the past several months, causing fish to scatter to others parts. With little to feed on, the crocodiles have become aggressive, he said.

The crocodile attack has prompted the temporary closure of the school and the evacuation of about 100 residents of houses on stilts on the lake, Hipulan added. JKS condolences goes out to the family

Friends Hope Teen’s Death Warns Others Against ‘Sexting’

Posted by thejamkingshow on March 10, 2009

Girl Takes Own Life After Nude Photo Circulated

– Friends of a teen who took her own life after a nude photo of her was sent around her school have come forward to discuss the events that led to the girl’s suicide.

“She more like kept to herself, (and) would like hide in the bathroom and cry,” said Lauren Taylor, who was best friends with Jessie Logan. “She’d always call me crying.”

Logan was an 18-year-old senior at Sycamore High School when a nude picture she sent to her boyfriend was sent to hundreds of students at schools across the area.

Her grades plummeted, and she began skipping school or hiding out in the bathroom to avoid other students.

“They’d call her slut, a whore, a skank,” Taylor said. “They’d say she that she was just trying to be a porn star.”

But friends said technology allowed the harassment to follow her home or anywhere else she went.

“When she would leave school she would get on her MySpace or her Facebook, and then kids would be messaging her on that or texting her phone, people she didn’t even know,” Taylor said.

Her friends saw a change in the fun-loving, free-spirited teen.

“She would just look down, and you could see the embarrassment in her face and, like, the pain, and that’s when I knew because they were from other schools that everyone had heard about it, and were texting it,” said Danielle Korgel, another friend.

The harassment broke Logan’s spirit, friends say.

“Once this picture was sent out she just, instead of standing up for herself, she just started putting her head down and letting people say what they wanted to say,” Taylor said.

How To Talk To Your Children About Sexting

Friends said they knew Logan was depressed and upset by the harassment, but her suicide still shocked them.

“I was in shock,” Taylor said. “I couldn’t believe that she would take her life. I couldn’t understand. I didn’t want to believe it, I couldn’t believe it.”

Logan’s friends and family hope her story will serve as a reminder for teens and anyone else who would consider sending nude photos across the Internet or by cell phone.
