Tragedy has struck New York Knicks Center Eddie Curry. His baby’s mother and her daughter were found murdered at her South Side Chicago apartment on Saturday.
Police found Nova Henry, 24, and daughter, Ava, fatally shot around 6 p.m., the Chigago Tribune reported.
They are searching for a “known acquaintance” of Henry’s in connection with the murder.
Henry’s 3-year-old—Curry’s—was discovered unharmed, sources told the Tribune and the New York Daily News.
Immediate family members did not comment but a man indentifying himself as Henry’s uncle say they believe they know the who the gunman is.
“She had a stalker boyfriend,” he told WMAQ in Chicago. “And she had a restraining order against him and she was trying to avoid all this.”
A Knicks source close to Curry described him as “distraught” on hearing the news of his former girlfriend’s death and what his son witnessed, according to The News. Read the rest of this entry »

Three men were charged Saturday with felony first-degree murder in the shooting death of NFL player Sean Taylor, a death police say was unplanned.
Eric Rivera Jr., 17; Venjah K. Hunte, 20; and Charles Kendrick Lee Wardlow, 18, each faces charges of felony first-degree murder, burglary with a firearm and home invasion robbery while armed, according to court documents.
The charge of felony first-degree murder can be applied if someone is killed, even accidentally, during certain violent felony crimes.
Rivera appeared in a courtroom in Fort Myers, Florida, while Hunte and Wardlow appeared via video phone from jail.
A fourth suspect, Jason Scott Mitchell, 19, was processed too late to appear in court, officials said. He is to be in court Sunday, and he faces the same charges as the other three.
Police have more than one confession in the case, according to Robert Parker, director of the Miami-Dade Police Department.

he Miami-Dade Police Department arrested four people Friday and charged them with murder in connection with the fatal shooting of Washington Redskins Sean Taylor.
Police spokeswoman Linda O’Brien identified the men as: Venjah K. Hunte, 20; Eric Rivera Jr., 17; Jason Scott Mitchell, 17; and Charles Kendrick Lee Wardlow, 18.
Taylor died Tuesday, one day after being shot at his home in an affluent Miami suburb during what officials said appeared to be an attempted burglary. The suspects weren’t expecting Taylor to be home, police director Robert Parker said, but Taylor was recuperating from a knee injury and had returned to Miami from Washington.
“They were certainly not looking to go there and kill anyone,” Parker said. He added authorities had more than one confession but would not elaborate.
“We’re looking into whether or not one or more of the individuals had been at the residence before,” Parker said.
The Miami Herald reported investigators believe the men learned of Taylor’s house through someone who unwittingly set up the burglary by bragging about Taylor’s wealth.
Taylor and longtime girlfriend, Jackie Garcia, were awakened early Monday by loud noises at Taylor’s home, family friend Richard Sharpstein said. Taylor grabbed a machete he keeps in the bedroom for protection, Sharpstein said, then someone broke through the bedroom door and fired two shots, one missing and one hitting Taylor in the upper leg. Neither the couple’s 18-month-old daughter, also named Jackie, nor Garcia were injured.
The bullet damaged the femoral artery in Taylor’s leg, causing significant blood loss. Taylor never regained consciousness and died a little more than 24 hours later.
A public viewing for Taylor is scheduled Sunday in Miami, and the entire Redskins organization plans to fly to Florida to attend Monday’s funeral at Pharmed Arena at Florida International University.
The Redskins also announced that fans attending the team’s Sunday game will receive a towel with Taylor’s No.21 jersey on it and that his name will be displayed prominently in one of the end zones. Team owner Dan Snyder said in a statement the team will contribute a minimum of $500,000 to a fund to benefit Taylor’s daughter.

Police have detained at least three people in the Fort Myers area for questioning in the death of Washington Redskins football star Sean Taylor.
A law enforcement official in Lee County confirmed the men from the Fort Myers area were in custody, but requested anonymity because the investigation is being handled by Miami-Dade County police.
The Miami Herald, which first reported the development on its Web site, said investigators believe three suspects learned of Taylor’s house through someone who unwittingly set up the burglary by bragging about his wealth. The suspects include two teenagers and a man in his 20s, all from the Fort Myers area, the paper reported.
A telephone message left at the Florida City Police Department for Taylor’s father, Chief Pedro Taylor, was not immediately returned.
Richard Sharpstein, a former Taylor lawyer and family friend, said: “It looks like the police are pursuing extremely good leads. It appears that the burglary was exactly as I’ve always stated, not random, that Sean’s house was targeted.”
Evidence at Taylor’s home indicated one or more intruders barged into the house early Monday in an attempted burglary, Miami-Dade police director Robert Parker said Wednesday. After a confrontation inside the home, Taylor was shot once in the upper leg and died early Tuesday after losing a tremendous amount of blood.
Taylor’s family has scheduled a funeral service for 11 a.m. Monday at Pharmed Arena at Florida International University in Miami.

Nah this doesn’t look like the face of a killer…Phil “I pulled the trigger” Spector got off in his murder trial as the judge declared it a mistrial due to a 10-2 vote by the jury. 10 votes of guilty (as hell) and 2 votes of not-guilty (wonder which bank those juror checks will be withdrawn on).
The compelling evidence (saying he did it) against this guy makes O.J. look like a girl scout. He was on trial for
allegedly killing a woman he had met.
Spector went on trial in April, charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of B-movie queen Lana Clarkson after a night out in the clubs of Hollywood.
Spector, 67, did not take the witness stand at the trial.
Normally reclusive, Spector had spent a rare night out on the town, found Clarkson at the House of Blues at closing time and invited her home for a drink in the wee hours of February 3, 2003.
After initially turning him down, she agreed to accompany him, according to testimony.
Hours later, police were summoned to Spector’s mansion in Alhambra, a suburb of Los Angeles. The diminutive music producer had wandered into the driveway in the predawn and told his Brazilian-born chauffeur, “I think I killed somebody,” according to the driver’s testimony. (can we say confession) and then can we say (guilty as hell)
Clarkson was found inside, slumped in a chair in the foyer. She had been shot in the mouth. A .38-caliber Colt Special revolver lay at her feet. It appeared someone had attempted to clean up the blood with a diaper found in the guest bathroom.
Spector’s attorneys argued that Clarkson was depressed over a recent breakup, grabbed the gun and took her own life.
But prosecution witnesses painted Spector as a gun-toting menace, with five women telling harrowing tales on the witness stand of the music producer threatening them with firearms. Spector’s driver testified he heard a loud noise and saw the producer leave the home, pistol in hand, saying, “I think I killed somebody.” - (Can we say guilty as hell)
At issue was whether Spector pulled the trigger — or whether Clarkson did. In photos projected on a large screen, the gruesome crime scene resembled a set decorated for a horror film.
Prosecutors pointed to the leopard print purse slung over Clarkson’s shoulder as evidence she was trying to leave when she was shot. (Again can we say guilty as hell)
The defense argued that blood-spatter evidence on the white women’s jacket Spector wore showed he was standing too far away to place the gun in Clarkson’s mouth.
Wow our justice system is the bomb! Can’t wait till they find Osama and put him on trial and he gets off with a $400 fine and community service…
