It was found by Mark Rubinstein of Coral Springs during Florida’s official Burmese python hunt last winter. He was hunting in a remote, swampy area west of Miami where two planes went down: Eastern Flight 401 in 1972 and ValuJet Flight 592 in 1996. Rubinstein hoped to return the penny-sized pendant with diamonds circling a cross of sapphires to the family of one of the crash victims. However, the executive director of the National Air Disaster Alliance/Foundation said Thursday that none of the families who lost loved ones aboard the ValuJet flight have claimed the piece. The grassroots air safety organization represents crash survivors and victims’ families. “The ValuJet family members have been well informed about the pendant, however, no one has said it belonged to their loved one,” Gail Dunham said in an e-mail. http://www.chicemma.com/
(KABC) — An imposter who said he knew Nick Cannon is suspected of stealing tens of thousands of dollars worth of jewelry from Fred Segal in Santa Monica. According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the store got a call from someone posing as a representative for Cannon, a comedian and TV show host and husband of pop music superstar Mariah Carey. The caller said Cannon needed jewelry, so an employee of the store packed up several thousand dollars worth of jewelry, brought it to the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood and handed it off to a man posing as Cannon’s security guard. That man said he’ll bring it up to Cannon, but instead disappeared with the loot. To most people, a carefree exchange of pricey jewels may sound fishy, but celebrity stylist Laurie Brucker says high-priced deliveries like this happen all the time when trend-setting celebrities are involved. “It’s very possible that this can happen,” said Brucker.
