PLEADED: Private eye to the stars Anthony Pellicano, 59, pleaded not guilty Monday to charges of possessing grenades and plastic explosives, reports Reuters. FBI agents reportedly found the weapons when they were investigating whether Pellicano had threatened Los Angeles Times reporter Anita Busch, who was researching the relationship between action star Steven Seagal and a reputed mobster. Pellicano's past clients include Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson and Mike Myers.
REVIEWED: Almost six years to the day that 6-year-old old JonBenet Ramsey was found strangled in her parents' basement, Colorado's Boulder County District Attorney Mary Keenan is launching an aggressive review of the long-unsolved case, reports the Denver Post. An attorney for the Ramsey family says that parents John and Patsy Ramsey are in favor of a fresh look into the case -- so long as the review steers clear of the Boulder police department, which the Ramseys believe botched the investigation. They have proclaimed their own innocence in the murder, which occurred Dec. 26, 1996.
