Steve Irwin Death: Cameraman Recalls Crocodile Hunter’s Final Words

Cameraman Justin Lyons, the sole witness to the tragic death of Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin revealed the star’s final moments in a new interview this week.

“I’m dying,” was all the 44-year-old popular television host said after a surprise attack eight years ago by a massive stingray, Lyons told Studio Ten Sunday.

Dwight Howard to Sign with Houston Rockets

Houston, you have a center.

According to multiple reports, Dwight Howard will sign a contract with the Houston Rockets in the coming days, putting an end to one of the more irritating free agent periods in recent memory.

Howard led the league in rebounding last season with the Lakers, but he never meshed well with Kobe Bryan or Coach Mike D’Antoni.

While Howard is yet to make an official statement, all other teams in pursuit of the

Ana Trujillo, Houston News Anchor, Kills Boyfriend With Stiletto Heel

Ana Trujillo, a Houston TV host, has been charged with murdering her boyfriend by striking him more than 10 times in the face, head and neck with her stiletto heel.

Ana Trujillo, 44, was in a relationship with the late Alf Stefan Andersson, 59, a top researcher in women’s health issues at the University of Houston.

Houston Police Shut Down Kanye West Screening of "New Slaves"

Last week, Kanye West debuted his music video for “New Slaves” by projecting it across the fronts of buildings around the world.

But while Paris, Berlin and Chicago all agreed to be in on the rapper’s latest act, Houston apparently had a problem with whatever West had planned for Friday night at the Rothko Chapel.

Local reports confirm that authorities pulled up to that location – after West announced the gathering via Twitter hours before – and threatened to arrest all attendees for trespassing.

The crowd soon dispersed once it became clear that no video would be shown.
