Breaking News

The radio is reporting that police have discovered a body on the corner of St. Louis and Decatur, right in the heart of the French Quarter. All they'll say is that it's a woman and it's murder.
Last night on the news, local stations ran a fluff piece to contradict the negative press NOLA is getting in the island state. Hawai'i publications are issuing warnings to travelers on their way here for the Sugar Bowl.
The only thing NOMB can hope for from this latest murder, smack dab in tourist central,is that the body was dumped. Or maybe, it was personal. The murder of a tourist in the Quarters is, well, we all know what that is. Especially with the BSC Bowl Championship, the NBA Allstar game, and Mardi Gras all lined up in the coming months.

Also, in regular news...

Shortly after 7:30 p.m., New Orleans police officers responded to a call of a man shot in the 2400 block of South Robertson Street. Sixth District officers found the man with a gunshot wound to his leg.

In Jefferson Parish, a man was shot in the 1000 block of Whitney Avenue in an unincorporated area near Gretna just before 9 p.m.
