It was believed that NYPD cop Vincent Ling died as a result of gunshot wounds back in 1999. However, on Monday (Mar. 19), it was discovered that he's alive and well, after cops tracked down his supposed killer.
Per the New York Daily News, Lester Pearson, Ling's killer, was arrested at his home in Jacksonville, Fla. A wanted man in several states, authorities reported that Ling’s killer was in custody.
After NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill tweeted that they caught Ling's killer in Florida, they later had to take back their report, as they discovered Ling didn't die as a result of his injuries. They said that a "misread" of the attempted murder warrant "led to confusion."
"Ling was off duty when he was shot. Because he worked undercover, his name was not released at the time of the incident," the Daily News writes. "News reports of the time say he spent at least a month in the hospital, and was partly paralyzed by a bullet lodged in his spine."
Reports say that Ling is now 47 years old, and records indicate that he lives in The Bronx. He could not be reached for comment, and the NYPD did not answer questions regarding how they discovered he was alive.
"Pearson had been living in Jacksonville under the name Michael Davis with his girlfriend and several children. He performed as a rapper named Monsta Kodi and has more than 100,000 Instagram followers," the Daily News says of Ling's alleged killer. They lived in the same neighborhood and had beef; Pearson once dated Ling's sister.
Jordyn Woods' start to 2019 was relatively rough but things are starting to smooth out for the 21-year-old, according to The Blast. The media outlet reports that following her cheating scandal with NBA player Tristan Thompson and her appearance on the Facebook show, Red Table Talk, Woods received numerous deals from overseas businesses.
The Blast revealed that sources involved with the deals disclosed that Woods along with her "momager," Elizabeth Woods will leave for London at the end of the month to sign "several new deals." Many of the opportunities being offered to the California native revolve around the beauty industry, including a new line for her eyelash brand.
Although Woods' mother may be her manager, she has marketing genius Sheeraz Hasan to thank for her new, lucrative deals. Hasan, who has coincidentally worked with Kim Kardashian, has handled deals between Hollywood and the Middle East for Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, and Logan Paul just to name a few. He is the brain behind Woods' upcoming trip to London, and a later trip to Dubai which she reportedly teased on her Instagram Story with a video showcasing her mother and Hasan.
Former Disney Channel star Kyle Massey came under fire over the weekend after being accused of sending sexually explicit material to a teenage girl. The 27-year-old is vehemently denying the allegations in a statement.
"No child should ever be exposed to sexually explicit materials and I unequivocally and categorically deny any alleged misconduct," said Massey through his lawyer Lee Hutton in a statement to TMZ. He also urged the public "not to jump to conclusions based on the allegations alone but reserve judgment until the whole story comes to light, proving these allegations baseless.”
The gossip site broke the story that the former That's So Raven actor was being sued by the family of the teenager for $1.5 million. The suit alleges that Massey send a photo of his erect penis to the girl via Snapchat in Dec. 2018.
Court documents claim that the teenager is an aspiring actress who has known Massey since she was four years old. He remained close with the family and acted as a "father figure" of sorts to the girl. She reached out to him in November 2018 about auditioning for the spinoff of his show, Cory In The House.
