The magician is the subject of a documentary on public television: Ricky Jay: Deceptive Practice
A group bidding for the assets of the bankrupt New York City Opera is using a name that already belongs to another opera company.
From Alexander Wang x HM to head to toe Adidas, it seems a new trend has emerged that will likely dominate 2015: the “health goth.”
The townhouses at 11, 13 and 15 E. 75th Street, which are of varying heights and facades, do not lend themselves to the “mega mansion” the New York Post claimed last week Roman Abramovich is planning to build, being located, rather inconveniently, in the Upper East Side historic district.
Rats in the Big Apple prefer American cuisine, according to city data. New York health inspectors found evidence last year of disease-riddled rodents at 1,111 locations across the five boroughs,…
‘I wish … you find yourselves exactly like I am now’: Woman who was paralyzed in 2010 botched robbery dies
The woman who paralyzed after being shot in an SAQ store in Baie d’Urfé in 2010 has died.
Montreal police Constable Danny Richer said Friday morning Hélène Leduc died in recent days.
An SAQ employee, Leduc became a quadriplegic after being shot in the neck at point-blank range during a botched robbery on Oct. 18, 2010.
The coroner will perform an autopsy, and if her death is linked to her injury in 2010, the investigation into her attempted murder will be upgraded to a murder investigation.
No one was charged with a crime in connection with the case, though Richer said the investigation is ongoing.
In 2012, Leduc gave an interview that appeared on YouTube. Lying in a hospital bed in the health facility she called home, Leduc told how her life changed completely in a single second.
The last words she heard before being shot: “Turn around, get on your knees, we will not hurt you.”
She told the interviewer that she hoped to meet her assailants “face-to-face, eye-to-eye.”
“I would tell them, ‘I wish you only one thing: that one day you find yourselves exactly like I am now, nothing more, nothing less.”
