Naya Rivera stuns in barely-there dress

Written By kom nampuldu on Jumat, 31 Oktober 2014 | 20.50

Naya Rivera turned heads at Thursday night's UNICEF Next Generation 2nd Annual Masquerade Ball in Los Angeles.

The 27-year-old "Glee" star was the ultimate sex kitten as her black gown featured a plunging neckline, a mile-high slit up to her hip bone and two tiny spaghetti straps that crossed on her exposed back.

Rivera pulled her looked together with messy hair and black heels.

She attended the swanky event, held at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, with her new husband Ryan Dorsey.

The pair quietly wed in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on July 19, just three months after she ended her highly publicized engagement to rapper Big Sean.

Mexico police questioned in murder of 3 Americans

MATAMOROS, Mexico — Authorities are investigating a possible police connection to the killing of three U.S. citizens visiting their father in Mexico who were found shot to death along with a Mexican friend more than two weeks after going missing.

Parents of the three siblings, whose bodies were identified Thursday, have said witnesses reported they were seized by men dressed in police gear calling themselves "Hercules," a tactical security unit in the violent border city of Matamoros heavily racked by cartel infighting. Nine of the unit's 40 officers are being questioned, Tamaulipas state Attorney General Ismael Quintanilla Acosta said.

It would be the third recent case of alleged abuse and killings by Mexican security forces and the first to involve Americans.

The country already is engulfed in the case of 43 teachers college students missing in southern Guerrero state at the hands of a mayor and police working with a drug cartel. Fifty-six people are under arrest, including dozens of police officers. In June, soldiers killed 22 suspected gang members in Mexico state, then altered the scene and intimidated witnesses to hide the fact that most of the dead were executed after they surrendered, a National Commission on Human Rights report said last week. Three soldiers face murder charges.

"We will apply the full force of the law and zero tolerance," Tamaulipas Gov. Egidio Torre Cantu said, lamenting the death of the three Americans and a Mexican citizen, even though their identities had yet to be confirmed by DNA.

Presidential spokesman Eduardo Sanchez declined comment when asked about the newest case. The U.S. Embassy said it was aware of the reports but had no information to share "due to privacy considerations."

The father of the three Americans, Pedro Alvarado, identified his children from photographs of the bodies showing tattoos, Quintanilla told Radio Formula. Clothing found with the bodies also matched that of Erica Alvarado Rivera, 26, and brothers, Alex, 22, and Jose Angel, 21, who disappeared Oct. 13 along with Jose Guadalupe Castaneda Benitez, Erica Alvarado's 32-year-old boyfriend.

Each was shot in the head and the bodies were burned, most likely from lying in the hot sun for so long, Quintanilla said.

Tamaulipas authorities said it could take 24 to 48 hours for DNA tests to confirm that the bodies were those of the Alvarado siblings, who were last seen in El Control, a small town near the Texas border west of Matamoros, about to return home to Progreso, Texas.

"They were good kids," said an aunt, Nohemi Gonzalez. "I don't know why they did that to them."

The three siblings shared their mother's modest brick home on a quiet street in Progreso less than three miles from the border. Erica, who has four children between the ages of 3 and 9, had been scheduled to begin studying to become a nursing assistant next month.

Brothers Jose Angel and Alex had been scheduled to make their annual pilgrimage to Missouri as migrant farm workers more than a week ago, Gonzalez said. When they weren't on the road, they divided their time between their mother's house in Texas and their father's Mexico.

Officials have not commented on the events that led up to the disappearances, but the families' informal inquiries produced this version:

On Sunday, Oct. 12, Erica drove her black Jeep Cherokee across the border to El Control. She dropped it at her father's house and went to visit with her boyfriend.

Her mother, Raquel Alvarado, had told her to be back in Progreso by early Monday morning, because Raquel had to work and Erica's kids had to get to school. Raquel put the kids to bed Sunday night and awoke at 4 a.m. to see Erica was not home. She began calling her daughter's cellphone, but got no answer. At that point, it appears Erica was fine.

She continued calling through the morning of Oct. 13. "I'm always worried about her when she goes over there," the mother said.

Around 1 p.m., she reached her former husband. He told her Erica had called her brothers and asked them to bring her Jeep to a roadside restaurant under a bridge near El Control where she was eating with her boyfriend. One brother drove her Jeep and the other drove his Chevrolet Tahoe because they all planned to return to Progreso from there.

According to Raquel Alvarado, witnesses told family members that the brothers arrived around 12:30 p.m. and saw members of the police unit called Hercules pushing their sister and Castaneda and hitting Erica. When the brothers intervened, the police took all four of them, along with their vehicles. The witnesses said the armed men identified themselves as members of the Hercules unit and warned against intervening.

A September news release from the city about Hercules showed an armed force in fatigues and face paint. Mayor Leticia Salazar officially introduced Hercules as a group with particular skills to confront crime in high-risk operations. They have passed background checks and are trained by the state, Quintanilla said.

Neither Salazar nor the city's spokeswoman returned messages seeking comment Thursday.

Woman charged with sexually assaulting husband’s friend

Megan Davis Hoelting has been arrested and charged after allegedly breaking into the home of her husband's friend and sexually assaulting him while he was asleep.

The 31-year-old then told a deputy that she took off her nightgown and climbed into the man's bed wearing only her panties.

She then said she wrapped her legs around the man's waist and kissed him.

The victim told Sheriff's deputies that he awoke to the feeling that someone was "on top of him, fondling his genitals and attempting to perform fellatio upon him."

The victim said that he looked for a flashlight to try and see who was sexually assaulting him, and eventually used a flashlight application on his smartphone.

He saw the woman's breasts exposed and recognised her as his friend's wife.

He then alleges he told the woman to get off him and go home. When she refused, he called Williamson County Sheriff's Office.

Hoelting was arrested and allegedly admitted entering the man's back yard through an unlocked gate, entering his home through the back door and that she got into bed with the man.

Hoelting, who has been held in Williamson County Jail since the offence, was charged with burglary with the intent of sexual offence.

Jail records show that Hoelting has been arrested on October 14 for theft, October 16 for assault and October 21 for public intoxication.

Man allegedly sexually abused 3 underage girls at military base

A Queens man claimed to federal agents on Thursday that he had a perfect excuse for coercing three young girls into having sex with him at Brooklyn's Fort Hamilton Military base, saying "not all 12-year-old girls are the same."

Fausto Bonifaz, 39, was arrested Thursday and charged with having sex romps with the three girls at the Bay Ridge base between September 2009 and September 2010 when the alleged victims were 12 to 13 years old.

He was allowed onto the heavily guarded base after befriending one of the victim's mothers, whom he worked with at a local Kohl's and whose husband was on active military duty oversees, prosecutors said.

The mother routinely had Bonifaz stay over and watch her children, unaware that he would ultimately seduce the girl into having sex with him. Bonifaz would later have sex with two of the girl's friends, according to a criminal complaint filed in Brooklyn federal court.

His first alleged victim reported the abuse to a counselor years later, leading to Bonifaz's arrest. During an interview with FBI agents Thursday, Bonifaz claimed being a "father figure" to his friend's daughter but also admitted having oral sex and other sexual activity with her.

In our society, not all 12 years olds are the same. - Fausto Bonifaz

He denied having sex with the other girls but did document some of his alleged dirty deeds in a sworn statement.

Bonifaz faces a minimum of 10 years in prison after being charged with sexually abusing minors and enticing three minors to engage in sexual activity.

Following his arrest, he seemed stunned that what he did was wrong, telling one of the agents, "I can't believe they have sentences for what happened." The agent replied, "you sexually abused two 12 year olds and a 13 year old," according to court papers.

Bonifaz then said, "in our society, not all 12 year olds are the same." The agent responded, "are you saying it's okay to f— some 12-year-olds but not others?" Bonifaz did not respond.

Thunder’s Westbrook breaks hand, later has altercation with fan

LOS ANGELES — First, the Thunder lose Kevin Durant, and now it looks like Russell Westbrook will be out for awhile.

The high-scoring guard suffered a small fracture of the second metacarpal in his right hand in the second quarter of the Thunder's 93-90 loss to the Clippers Thursday night, coach Scott Brooks told reporters.

The result also wasn't any better for the 0-2 Thunder as Blake Griffin scored 23 points, making two free throws with five seconds left, and Chris Paul added 22 to lead Los Angeles to victory in its season opener to usher in a new era under owner Steve Ballmer.

Westbrook appeared to hurt his hand while going for a rebound in a crowd. He didn't return and finished with two points and four assists in eight minutes. He appeared to have a verbal exchange with a fan while exiting through the tunnel.

Westbrook had X-rays taken at Staples Center and was set to be re-evaluated Friday, according to ESPN.com.

Brooks was asked about the possibility of Durant and Westbrook both being out for an extended period of time.

"I don't want to start thinking about that yet," he told reporters. "I'll think about that tonight as I leave the arena."

Jury confused over who swindled counterfeit drawings

It's an art forgery case with a twist.

A worthless pile of 22 counterfeit drawings that were supposed to be by the late Russian avant-garde master Kazimir Malevich is sitting in a Manhattan courthouse this week while a jury puzzles over the question — who's the swindler?

It's either the grey-ponytailed Connecticut dealer Lev Nussberg who claims to have kept a stash of Malevich works at his home for decades before selling them to gallery in 2006, or the bald Manhattan gallery owner Gary Tatintsian who bought the pieces from Nussberg then sold them to Russian oligarchs, who later determined they were fakes.

Nussberg says he sold a $3 million trove of real ones starting in 2006 and the gallery owner swapped them for fakes when he sold them off to Russians oligarchs.

"They had no idea who had possession of these drawings while they were in Russian," Nussberg's lawyer, Frank Franzino, told the 10-person jury in Manhattan Supreme Court earlier this week.

Franzino added that some of Tatintsian's clients even exhibited some of the disputed works in shows around the globe.

But Tatintsian, the gallery owner says he was duped from the start.

"The art is fake and that's why we're here," Tatintsian's attorney Gregory Clarick said during opening statements.

"Mr. Nussberg owes Gary and his gallery millions of dollars," Clarick said.

Tatintsian is also repped by legendary Manhattan attorney Edward Hayes, recently depicted in the Broadway show "Lucky Guy" starring Tom Hanks.

Malevich, a Pablo Picasso acolyte, was thrown in prison by Joseph Stalin in 1929 and his works were hidden by friends.

Nussberg, who fled the Soviet Union and emigrated to the U.S. in 1980, claims he was given the Malevich sketches as gifts.

But when Clarick cross-examined Nussberg on the witness stand Thursday, the dealer admitted that he never gave Tatintsian any provenance documents.

Nussberg first sued Tatintsian in 2009 when the Manhattan dealer failed to pay him the $800,000 balance for the $3 million of artwork he had sold from his collection.

Next week Tatintsian's lawyers will put an art forensics expert, who works with the FBI, on the stand to testify that he detected synthetic chemicals in the sold sketches that were "unavailable until long after their purported creation."
