So Sad: NYC Missing Woman Found Dead In Turkey

This is so sad, I was really hoping this event wouldn’t end on bad news but it has. 33-year-old, Sarai Sierra from Staten Island, was found dead in Istanbul yesterday. The news of the mother of two’s disappearance came on January 21 when she was supposed to board her flight to come home. Sierra called home, like she did throughout her trip, and promised her children that she would see them the next day, a promise that sadly didn’t come true.

(Video) LMAO! Woman Asks Dealership To Test Drive A Range Rover & Never Comes Back!

A Michigan woman was able to pull off a robbery ended with her driving away from a car dealership in a Range Rover, Tuesday Jan. 29, all because she played it smart, distracted the employers and just acted cool. And she stole it.. ALL BY HERSELF! The unidentified suspect walked into Wes Financial Auto in Dearborn, Michigan and tricked an entire staff just by distracting them. The dealership requires that potential customers provide two forms of I.D. before they are allowed to go for a test drive. Since there were so many sales people at the dealership, the woman went from one person to another, until she was able to get her hands on a key. “She goes, ‘Ah…I’m here to see the Range Rover,” said owner, Wes Issa. “I go’ Which one?’ She says, ‘The silver one.’ And I’m like ‘Okay’….she says, ‘Thanks babe,’ and walks out. “The other sales guy handed her the key thinking that I already took the license from her and her IDs,” Issa explained. Because she left behind no information, there’s no way to track her down—unless police find the car somewhere, but it may be too late. “I don’t know what they’re doing with these vehicles,” Issa said. “Chopping them, selling them for parts. I don’t know what’s going on. I mean, whatever it is, it’s hurting us.” The dealer ship is offering $3,000 for the woman to be found or at car. But….. good luck with that, buddy! SMH!

Drake Dropped his first single for his third studio album, the song “Started From The Bottom” a few days ago. With the dope back beat it comes as no surprise that somebody else would have put a verse on this song which I’m sure will become an anthem for anybody who feels like they started from the bottom and worked their way into proper position. Drake was trying to share his story once again, for anybody who may have gotten it confused, and Wiz must have thought it a good idea to get in on the action. Drake has done it again, another anthem, let’s see who else jumps on the song by the time the album is released. Hit the jump for more.
