What’s wrong with you lately???

There’s this:

Taken from the Strung Out message board:
“So our van and trailer just got stolen from our hotel here in Philly around 7:30am. We had just checked in and no more then 20 minutes later, Chris happen to look out the window and see our van driving out. Sure enough, it was skidrown mother fucker ripping it off. So we have lost ALL of our equipment, all of our merch, tons of personal stuff and we are pretty much fucked and stuck in a shitty Days Inn in a fucked up part of town in Philly. There was a double homicide 2 blocks down the road that we were watching about on TV so ya, not a nice part of town at all. Anyhow, if you live in Philly, please be on the look out for our van and trailer. Its a light blue ford E 350 15 passenger van with a white trailer with white rims. There is a bull skull mounted on the front of the grill. We are trying to think what to do. We will figure out how the show must go on though because we for sure dont want to or are we thinking about canceling the tour. We have a lot to figure out here…..

2 Guards Shot Dead In Armored Car Heist

by KYW’s Al Novack, Tony Hanson, and Steve Tawa

Philadelphia police are searching for gunman who killed two security guards during an armored car robbery Thursday morning in the city’s Rhawnhurst section.

Police officials say two guards were shot to death at point-blank range. A third guard suffered minor injuries when the gunman fired at him as he sat inside the armored car.

Police commissioner Sylvester Johnson has called it an “execution.”

“(One guard) gets up, starts taking money out of the ATM machine. As one guard is taking money out of the ATM machine, an unidentified black male come up around the lefthand side of him and fires, shooting the guard and killing him. He then goes around the pole, shoots the other guard; he is also fatally wounded.”

Later, police officials disclosed that both slain security guards were retired Philadelphia police officers. They are identified as Joseph Allullo, 50, who had been with the force for 27 years until he retired in 2000, and William Widmaier, 65, a 23-year veteran of the force who retired in 1989. Sources say they had been lifelong friends. Read the rest of the story here.

Phila. Funeral Directors Charged with Trafficking Body Parts

by KYW’s Mark Abrams

Three Philadelphia funeral directors are among five people charged in a scheme to harvest diseased body parts from the dead for resale to companies who then sold them to hospitals.

District attorney Lynne Abraham says the trio allowed 44-year-old Michael Mastromarino, the owner of a Fort Lee, NJ biomedical tissue company to send in a group of “cutters” to harvest bones, skin, and tissue from 244 people.

“These bodies and the tissue and bone from them, were not healthy and in almost every case was totally unsuitable for implantation into anybody for any reason.” Read the whole story here.
