2 Florida Teen Females Found Dead Bound With With Zip Ties On The Side Of The Road

Two young women from Tampa were found dead in Jacksonville this morning, left tied up and naked along the side of a road, according to witnesses.

Deputies in Jacksonville say it was early this morning when they received 911 calls from witnesses who couldn’t believe what they were seeing on the city’s north side.

“I did a U-turn to see if it was a dead animal. That’s when we saw that it was one laying on top of another that looked like they were tossed from the overpass,” Jason Brown told FOX 30 News.

Jacksonville deputies later identified the victims as 19-year-old Angelia Ella Mangum of 18th Street in Tampa, and 17-year-old Tjhisha Monique Ball of College Park Court.

Investigators say the medical examiner would have to determine the exact cause of death, but witnesses described a “sickening” scene along Sisson Drive.

“They were naked, bound. They had, like, zip ties around their hands and their feet,” Alton Soles recalled.

“They were hog tied like wild animals,” Brown said.

Tjhisha’s stunned family said she was a stripper who bounced around between Tampa and Jacksonville and had started hanging out with what they said was the wrong crowd.

Her mother said she last spoke to Tjhisha two weeks ago, and blamed herself for not seeing the warning signs earlier.

“I feel like sometimes like I failed, like what could I have done? What could I have taught her better?” Jarlean Moore said softly. “It just hurts. It hurts.”

“She was the life of the party,” Tjhisha’s sister Crystal Moore offered. “She was very brave and outgoing. I just don’t understand what happened.”

Investigators in Jacksonville are asking for anyone with information to contact them via CrimeStoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.

Meanwhile, two communities on opposite sides of the state will now be waiting for a break in the case.

“My prayers go out to their souls and their families,” Brown added.

WHOA!!! 2Pac Called “An Overrated Rapper” By Kanye West

kanye west

Five years have passed since Kanye West rudely interrupted Taylor Swift at the Video Music Awards but he’s back into the headlines for insulting one of the rap industry’s most beloved performers, Tupac Shakur.

In a statement that’s sending shock waves across the music industry, Kanye West dissed Tupac Shakur by calling him the “most overrated rapper in history” while chatting after a celebrity showing of Jonathan Liebesman’s newest film, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, at the Hollywood Theatre in Hollywood, California.

The gala was hosted by the movie’s stars, Megan Fox and Will Arnett and attendees included a host of musicians and film stars.

The topic of 2Pac came up in conversation when an undisclosed person mentioned to Kanye that his newest studio album, Yeezus, reminded him of Shakur’s breakout record, Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z.

Shakur is one of the top-selling artists of all-time, with album sales in excess of 75 million and counting, but West is not impressed and didn’t appreciate the comparison.

“How you gonna go compare my music to 2Pac?” he said, “2Pac wasn’t no musician. He was an actor. What was he in? Juice? Above the Rim? He was the most overrated rapper in history and you come up in here comparing him to me? A real rapper…a real star.”

Kanye went on to explain that Shakur became famous only “cuz he got shot” and because the fact that he had spent time in prison propped up his street image during the 90’s when gangsta rap peaked in popularity.

“Gangsta rap ain’t even real music. You wanna hear real music listen to The College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, 808s & Heartbreak…”

There’s no need to finish the quote here as West went on to name every single one of his albums.

It isn’t the first time that Kanye has knocked down other artists while giving himself a firm pat on the back, but to so coldly insult the man that Rolling Stone ranked as the 86th greatest musician of all-time, it seems like West has finally overstepped his boundaries.

In related news, West let his narcissistic tendencies boil over at a show in Sydney, Australia when he insisted that everyone in the arena stand before he would continue on with his performance.

“I decided I can’t do this song, I can’t do the rest of the show until everybody stands up,” he said. “Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and sh*t.”

Jay-Z, who collaborated with Kanye on their joint studio album Watch the Throne had this to say about the controversy:

“You know I love Kanye. He’s my boy. But that’s messed up, man. He shouldn’t be throwin’ those rabbit punched down low on 2Pac.”

As of publishing, Kanye West has yet to issue an apology.

Couple Dies In Deadly Car Crash After Skipping Out On Dinner Tab

A street littered with debris; two cars demolished, and two people dead.

It’s a violent end to what was a relatively minor crime; not paying a dinner tab.

The crash claimed the life of a 31-year-old man in a gray car heading home from work.

Residents and people working near the crash scene heard the crash.

“It sounded horrible for one… all we heard were the brakes and the flipping noises, then we rushed outside to see what was going on,” said Britani Franks.

The damage to both cars was so bad that there wasn’t much anyone could do.

“Completely totalled, the one that got slammed on the gray one, it was totalled from the front end. The top, they were cutting it open when I showed up over there,” said Adrian Leyendecker.

Police say the driver of the Camaro was driving very fast; the female driver lost control.

They say she and a male passenger had recently left the Texas Roadhouse Restaurant near 75th Ave. & McDowell without paying.

Store employees called police as the couple left in a hurry. Police say other witnesses reported the two fighting inside the car.

Phoenix Police’s helicopter spotted the couple, and an officer began chasing them on the ground. As speeds picked up the officers on the ground stop pursuing and let the helicopter follow the car.

While traveling through 67th Avenue & Van Buren, the driver lost control killing the driver of the other car and her male passenger.

“It is terrible that somebody innocent died over something stupid like that, and not being able to help it in any way, shape, or form,” said Ray Armijo.

Floyd Mayweather Nets A Cool $32Mil & Tips His Waitress With “Shade”

floyd mayweather

Floyd Mayweather defeated Marcos Maidana for the second time this year this past Saturday night, and it’s not secret that he netted $32 million for being the last man standing in Vegas.

That didn’t prevent Mayweather from being super petty later that night, as he took his champagne campaign to Rehab at the Hard Rock, and ordered over $23,000 in food and alcohol, and didn’t leave an iota of a tip, this according to the attending waitress Nik Nyugen. To add insult to injury, Nik didn’t even earn her place of employment any money while Mayweather was there, considering the Hard Rock hotel decided to comp Mayweather’s entire bill. Maybe when Mayweather found out everything was on the house, he forgot that Nyugen probably has her own house to pay for, and she could’ve used a minute percentage of that $23,000 for her hard work.
