    Report Details Braxton Case

    Allegations against Towanda Braxton-Carter, pop star Toni Braxton’s sister, stem from checks stolen from Safeco regional headquarters in Gwinnett County, according to the police report filed in the incident.

    The sister of R&B singer Toni Braxton is facing criminal charges in Gwinnett County. Braxton-Carter, who lives in Duluth, was charged with forgery and theft-by-receiving.

    Braxton-Carter, 31, was once an employee of Safeco, an insurance firm, but quit months before the alleged thefts took place.

    Braxton-Carter was reportedly in a back room of the company’s office where the blank checks are stored with Steven Robeson, an employee, on January 31. Robeson left the room for a few minutes leaving Braxton-Carter alone and at that time she allegedly stole three blank company checks, the police report said.

    Braxton-Carter apparently used one of the checks at the Sweetwater Liquor Store, according to the police report.

    The check was processed, but rejected because of errors on the check and the liquor store subsequently contacted Safeco and Peggy Kingman, whom the police report lists as an investigator, and presumably, is employed by Safeco.

    Kingman said Braxton-Carter told her that Robeson had given her the checks and that she did not know they were forged. Robeson told Kingman he did not know anything about the checks, according to the police report.

    The other two checks have not been accounted for.

    Robeson was fired by Safeco for allowing someone into the back room, which is against company policy, the police report said.

    Braxton-Carter, who lives in Duluth, Ga., has been charged with one count of forgery.

    The Gwinnett County district attorney recently received the case and no court hearings have yet been set, Gwinnett officials told 11Alive News.

    A representative for Braxton-Carter declined to comment. A Safeco spokesman also declined to comment on the allegations.

    Braxton-Carter was recently on the how "Starting Over" and was a member of the R&B singing group The Braxtons.

    FBI Ends Probe Into Killing of Rap Star

    from the LA TIMES

    FBI Ends Probe Into Killing of Rap Star
  • Bureau discards theory being pursued by its lead agent regarding slaying of Notorious B.I.G.

  • By Chuck Philips, Times Staff Writer

    The FBI has closed an investigation into the 1997 slaying of rap star Notorious B.I.G., abandoning a controversial theory pursued by its lead agent on the case.

    The bureau spent 18 months investigating the possibility that a rogue Los Angeles police officer and rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight orchestrated the killing of B.I.G., whose real name was Christopher Wallace.

    FBI officials conducted a review of the investigation — and shut it down in January — after learning that Agent Philip J. Carson had discussions with lawyers for Wallace's mother, Voletta Wallace, and had been subpoenaed to testify in her wrongful-death lawsuit against the city.

    The FBI has informed Voletta Wallace's lawyers that Carson will not testify in the case. Officials also ordered Carson to have no further contact with the lawyers and to refer any inquiries from them to the FBI legal department.

    Voletta Wallace, whose suit accuses the Los Angeles Police Department of covering up police involvement in her son's killing, is seeking unspecified monetary damages. The case is scheduled to go to trial April 12 in federal court in Los Angeles.

    It is unclear what testimony her lawyers intend to elicit from Carson.

    Louis J. Caprino Jr., acting head of the criminal division of the FBI's Los Angeles field office, said this week that Carson's investigation was closed because federal prosecutors reviewed the evidence he had gathered and "determined that there was no basis for prosecution."

    FBI officials acknowledged that they discussed with Carson his dealings with the Wallace lawyers. But they said that had no bearing on the decision to halt the investigation.

    Caprino said the discussion was part of a "standard administrative review" conducted whenever an agent is subpoenaed to testify. He said the bureau found no improper conduct on Carson's part.

    Perry Sanders, an attorney for Voletta Wallace, took issue with the FBI's explanation for why the probe was discontinued.

    Sanders said the LAPD "exerted political pressure on the FBI to lay off the case." He said he learned this from "a reliable confidential source" whom he would not identify.

    Assistant FBI Director Richard T. Garcia, head of the Los Angeles office, rejected the allegation. "No one at the FBI was asked or directed to stop anything," Garcia said in an interview. "This investigation was reviewed diligently by [Carson's] boss on a regular basis and the results were submitted to the U.S. attorney's office. They determined that the evidence was insufficient for prosecution. So we dropped it."

    Christopher Wallace, then 24, was gunned down March 9, 1997, in front of hundreds of fans after a music industry party at the Petersen Automotive Museum in the mid-Wilshire district.

    LAPD detectives have pursued various theories in their efforts to solve the crime. One is that the killing, like that of rap star Tupac Shakur six months earlier, stemmed from a feud between rap figures in New York and Los Angeles.

    Shakur was the brightest star of Knight's Death Row Records in Los Angeles. Wallace was associated with Bad Boy Records in New York. The two stars and their associates had exchanged insults and threats on stage and in recordings.

    In 1998, LAPD investigators began to suspect that a disgraced former officer, David A. Mack, may have been involved. By then, Mack was in prison for robbing a bank. He had been on the police force at the time of Wallace's killing.

    Detectives learned that Mack owned a black Chevrolet Impala similar to one seen speeding from the murder scene. A witness said he saw Mack outside the automotive museum several hours before the shooting.

    Then-Det. Russell Poole advanced the idea that Mack planned the killing at Knight's behest and arranged for a friend, Amir Muhammad, to ambush Wallace.

    Other information gathered by investigators did not support the theory, however, and detectives turned their attention elsewhere. Knight, Mack and Muhammad, a Southland mortgage broker, have all denied any role in the killing.

    Since resigning from the LAPD in 1999, Poole has continued to promote his theory in books and through appearances in documentaries and on TV shows. Voletta Wallace's lawsuit incorporates Poole's arguments, and he is listed as an expert witness for the plaintiffs.

    Carson, the FBI agent, began his investigation after watching Poole on a TV special in the summer of 2003, court documents show.

    Carson contacted Poole and interviewed other detectives, witnesses and informants around the country at the suggestion of Wallace family attorneys, records show.

    In December 2003, Carson and other agents conducted surveillance of Muhammad and wired an informant in an attempt to illicit incriminating statements from him. The effort yielded nothing.

    In February 2004, Carson visited Mack at a federal prison in Alabama. Mack has said Carson offered to seek a reduction in his 14-year sentence for the bank robbery if he cooperated in the Wallace investigation.

    In a court filing, Mack said he rejected the offer in no uncertain terms.

    "I advised Carson that he had to be either the most inept or laziest agent I had ever met," Mack wrote. "It was obvious that he … was only regurgitating the allegations contained in the Wallace civil complaint verbatim."

    This week, FBI officials disputed Mack's account, contending that Carson never offered to seek a reduction in his sentence, which they said would have violated FBI policy.

    In September, FBI officials say, they asked Carson to attend a meeting to discuss why his name was on a plaintiff's list of potential witnesses.

    During the meeting, Carson's bosses also discussed his conduct of the investigation and explored his dealings with the plaintiff's attorneys, sources said.

    FBI officials were concerned that Carson might have been influenced by the Wallace lawyers and that his contacts with them could embarrass the bureau, the sources said.

    FBI agents are permitted to contact civil attorneys to see if they have information relevant to a criminal investigation. But bureau policy bars agents from sharing investigative information with them.

    Carson and his FBI superiors said he never shared information with Wallace's lawyers

    • "I had her removed, but she was shaken, not stirred. And that night I kicked him out, made him go live in someone else's house on the island."

    Private Booth- It's About Sex

    As I was surfing on Craig’s List I ran across this new blog, Private Booth .

    It is a blog environment for talk about real sex, real desires, and real experiences that real people encounter. It’s the girl who threw up on you the while she sucked you off, it’s the first time you got off with your fingers instead of a vibrator, it’s getting fucked up the ass with shampoo instead of lube.

    It's cybersex, phone sex, pity sex, and make up sex.

    It's gay sex, straight sex, bi sex, young sex, old sex and polyamorous sex.

    It's sex with the ones you love and it’s sex with strangers.

    It's your sex, and your preferences, and your explorations, and your pleasure, and your heartbreak.

    It's getting off and it's making love.

    It's what you think, it's what you wonder, it's what you hope.
