The crocodile is suspected in the deaths of a local farmer,who went missing in July, and for eating a 12-year-old girl, identified as Rowena Romano,  whose head was bitten off two years ago.(Source)

The Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center said it is the largest crocodile caught in the Philippines to date,and the largest captive crocodile on record was only a mere 18 feet…this one is 21 feet,600 kilograms ( 2,370 pounds)!!!(Source)

Mayor Edwin Elorde said Tuesday that the giant croc will become the star of a planned ecotourism and conservation park near the Agusan Marsh, Bunawan.(CNN)

“We will take advantage of this crocodile as a tourism attraction and we hope it will help us generate income and jobs,” Elorde reported to the media.(Source)

He hopes that, rather than eating tourist, that the crocodile will boost tourism to his city, and hopes to get the authorities from the Guinness Book of World records to acknowledge the croc, as being the largest one anywhere in captivity.

The crocodile has been named Lolong-after the lead hunter who planned the capture of the man-eater,  Ernesto “Lolong” Conate,but died of a stroke days before the hunt began.

Lolong, the male crocodile was captured after 3 weeks of hunting, with the help of a heavy metal cable and at least 30 men.(BBC)

It is believed to be at least 50 years old, and it took roughly 100 people to pull the beast from a creek by rope and then hoist it by crane onto a truck.

The villagers are not at ease at the capture of Lolong, because there have been sightings of a much larger crocodile in the area, so they are not certain that Lolong was the one responsible for the killings.(CBS)

I guess only time will tell.(Gather)

Experts explain that the destruction and intrusion on the giant crocodiles natural habitat by humans, lead to them feeding on human beings.If left undisturbed in their natural habitats, crocodiles are unlikely to eat humans despite their carnivorous nature, and that crocodiles turn extra aggressive during their breeding season from April to September.(Source)

Jani Lane,the 47-year-old lead singer of 1980s glam rock hair band Warrant,was found dead Thursday evening in Woodland Hills.Lane’s body was found at the Comfort Inn at the 20100 block of Ventura Boulevard,in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California.(HuffPo)

(JaniLane.net,the official site for Jani Lane fans)

A police spokesman had no immediate information on the cause or circumstances of his death, but did report that there were vodka and prescription medication found at the scene, and that Lane’s death is being treated as an accidental overdose  or a possible death from natural causes.(TMZ)

Hair band Warrant

Hair band Warrant

Lane is best known as the singer for the band Warrant, a rock hair band that rose to fame in the late-1980′s and early 1990′s behind the Jani Lane penned song,Cherry Pie. which was a multi-platinum hit for them,shooting them to super rock status stardom, as well as making Lane the object of many teen adolescnt girl affection.(Jani Lane-Wiki)

As high and as quick as Warrant shot to fame, Warrant, along with several other bands of its genre, such as Poison and Slaughter, saw their star power quickly decline in the 1990s as grunge bands such as Nirvana and Pearl Jam moved into the mainstream.(USA Today)

They even became the object of disdain in a series of running jokes about how much they sucked,the popular 90′s MTV animated cartoon, Beavis and Butthead. All they had to say is that…“We like bands that are cool” and “We don’t like bands that suck”.

When they featured the video clip of Warrant’s hit ‘Cherry Pie‘ on their show, as THE epitome of a rock band that sucked,coming from the mouths of rock music’c most powerful critics at that time, essentially ruined their career.(Source)

Beavis and Butthead ruined the career of Warrant

Beavis and Butthead ruined the career of Warrant

Even though a side character on Beavis and Butthead , a dorky loser named Stewart, was depicted wearing a Warrant t-shirt, the inference about Warrant fans being like Stewart, were made fun of so much that they quit listening to Warrant or just stopped because Stewart made them all look like pathetic losers and posers.(Slate)

After that fall from grace, Warrant continued on performing in much smaller venues, in little towns,and with no record label support at all.They basically toured off of their past hits,to less than entusiastic, and sometimes geriatric crowds.

I had the opportunity to meet Lane backstage at such a show in a small auditorium in Huntington Beach in 1996, where a friend’s local garage band was the opening act for Warrant. Jani Lane was a cool, and gracious person to me, and when he did finally did hit the stage, he was slightly inebriated,but gave a rousing and professional performance,to the cheering crowd.

Lane eventually chose to quit the band in 1993, only to rejoin the following year. But he again resigned once more in 2004, and was missing in action for four years before eventually returning again. 

That reunion lasted less than a year, before Lane’s third and final departure from the band.

Lane was known to have a history of alcohol issues, including a number of drinking-and-driving charges.

He was ordered to serve 120 days in jail after he was  arrested for DUI in 2010,which was his second DUI in two years.

Lane had also was a contestant on the VH1 series “Celebrity Fit Club”.(Source)

Jani Lane (born John Kennedy Oswald, later changed to John Patrick Oswald) is survived by four children — Taylar, Brittany, Madison and Ryan — and his wife Kimberly, as well as his sisters Marcine, Michelle and Victoria. (Source)

An immediate outpouring and expressions of grief from his colleagues and peers poured out over the internet and social networking sites upon the release of this tragic news.(TMZ)

“We’d like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Jani Lane regarding their loss,” Poison singer Bret Michaels wrote on Twitter.

“Just heard about Jani Lane. What a shame. RIP man,” Former Guns and Roses lead guitarist Slash Tweeted.

I send my condolences to his family,his children, and his friends….May he rest and ROCK ON!!!…in peace…

Three fugitive siblings, known as the Dougherty clan, who are  wanted for a crime spree in Florida and Georgia,have been captured in Colorado  Wednesday, after a high-speed chase and crashing their car into a highway barrier.(Source)

Lee Grace Dougherty, 29, and her two brothers, Ryan Edward Dougherty, 21, and Dylan Dougherty Stanley 26, have been on the run since Aug. 2 after allegedly shooting at a police officer in Florida during a high-speed chase. They also face charges for robbing a Georgia bank with assault weapons.(NPR)

The oldest of the siblings, professional stripper sister Lee Grace Dougherty, was chased through a field until she turned on a pursuing officer with an automatic pistol and tried to shoot him.

 The three Florida siblings had eluded law enforcement for more than a week until they were taken into custody Wednesday in Pueblo, Colo.

The siblings’ mother, Barbara Bell of East Palatka, Fla.,stated to the gathering media…”I’m sorry. I’m making no comment at this time,” said Bell, who last week had urged the trio to give up before there was bloodshed.

I am glad the public is safe from these three senseless killers, but I have to wonder, if they were three minority killers,who pointed and shot their firearms at the police like these three white fugitives,…how many bullets would have riddled their body even after they were dead, because American cops are quick to kill black men, yet are hesitant to kill PROVEN white mass murderers…like they used to do in the days of the real Bonnie and Clyde…(VIDEO)
