Could be a killer on the loose: It's a scary thought, but that Mardi Gras masker next to you at the parade could be one of the suspected killers running the streets of the French Quarter.
He is suspected of murdering Darrielle Rainey, 18, and shooting Brandon Tucker, 19, in the 1900 block of Amelia Street on 9.21.08. He allegedly pumped several shots into each of the youths as they sat in a car in the Uptown neighborhood.
What's the argument?: It's hard to believe the 2 workers at Fiorella's Cafe were arguing over who had the best chicken in town because, according to many, Fiorella's does, hands down.
Tourist trapped: A local would know better, but a white woman was walking in the 300 block of O'Keefe Avenue (near Union Street) around 3:15 a.m. Friday (2.20.09) when a man came up and offered to give her directions to her hotel. Then he pushed the woman and grabbed her purse, pulling it from her grasp.
