Los Angeles police want to talk to Suge Knight after a rapper initially accused the former Death Row Records chief of robbing him before recanting the story. Jerold Ellis, 35, who uses the name Yukmouth, reported he was talking to Knight on Monday night in a supermarket parking lot about a debt that another rapper allegedly owes Knight. Yukmouth filed a police report saying 10 other men arrived, knocked him down, and took his watch, medallion, and other jewelry worth $92,000. He declined medical treatment.

Possible break in Bassey daughter cold case
British police have reopened their investigation into the 1985 death of singer Shirley Bassey’s daughter after detectives received new information that suggested she might have been murdered. Samantha Novak was found face-down in a river near a suspension bridge in the southwest English city of Bristol 25 years ago. A coroner’s report said the 21-year-old tumbled off the riverbank after a night out with friends. Police are making fresh inquiries after the mother of Penny Beale — who was killed by her partner Michael Moffat in 2001 — told police her daughter had said Moffat was involved in Novak’s death. Bassey, 73, has maintained that her daughter’s death was not an accident or suicide.
