In the seven days since the body of go-go dancer Toshiko Ciaccio was found wrapped in a blue tarp in a quiet Bensalem neighborhood, police have uncovered few clues and fewer answers in what has become a baffling, frustrating case. "There's no crime scene and no suspects," said Bensalem Police Capt. Jack Robinson. "We need a break in the case, but we haven't gotten diddly. " Virtually all leads have turned up nothing. A waitress said she served Ciaccio and a man in the Golden Eagle II Diner in Bristol hours before Ciaccio was killed Sept.

Allen Iverson showed up for his annual celebrity softball game wearing his customary No. 3, although the number was on the throwback Atlanta Braves jersey of Dale Murphy. Atlanta? Was there anything to be read into Iverson's choice of uniform? "I don't know," Iverson said last night, before joining rapper Nelly and a celebrity roster to play before a capacity crowd at Prince George's Stadium. "God works in mysterious ways so whatever happens, happens. " The Atlanta Hawks are among the list of teams rumored to be interested in Iverson if the 76ers elect to trade him, as are the Boston Celtics, Denver Nuggets and others.

It has been more than a month since 5-year-old Lauren Jackson disappeared from the Park Springs Apartments in East Vincent Township. It has been a month of sleepless nights for the child's distraught mother. Sitting amid her daughter's toys in the living room of a sparsely furnished apartment Wednesday afternoon, Christine O'Donnell pointed to a little scooter parked against the wall. "I gave (Lauren) that for her birthday on Sept. 26," said O'Donnell, 35, her voice cracking, "but she didn't even learn to ride it right yet. " An intensive search began about an hour after Lauren's disappearance the evening of Oct. 4, with helicopters, bloodhounds, trackers and divers, but to date, authorities say they have turned up no significant clues to the child's whereabouts.

A doughnut bag left in an abandoned getaway car may offer police clues as to the identity of two robbers - one armed with a machine gun - who held up two employees in the Hidden Valley apartment complex' rental office yesterday, police said. A manager and secretary were in the office in the 700 block of Cherry Tree Road about 3:30 p.m. when the robbers entered and demanded money. No one was injured, police said, and the robbers escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash. The pair ditched their getaway car in another part of the complex, leaving behind a bakery bag and a McDonald's cheeseburger wrapper, said Police Chief William T. Robinson.

The official cause of death is still unknown in the case of a Philadelphia restaurateur whose body was found in his sailboat 110 miles off the Virgina coast Thursday.

"We were trying to find anyone who had seen anything at all. " Kerns said investigators decided on yesterday's sweep because they have not been able to find a motive for the slaying.

As Philadelphia police searched for leads in the abduction of a Center City jewelry store worker Monday afternoon, friends and acquaintances said the attack has rattled the tight-knit community on Jewelers Row. "It really shakes everyone up. You feel safe here - it's a little family," said Stacey Mancino, who works at Golden Nugget Jewelers, across the street from National Watch & Diamond Exchange, where the 53-year-old victim works. Police said the woman had left work Saturday and was walking to her car in a parking garage at 733 Chestnut St. when three men jumped out of a Ford Econoline and demanded the keys to the store and the codes to the safe, which she didn't know.

A 45-year-old man came to see me because of a rash on his nose. It had appeared the day before. It hurt a little and itched a bit, though it was more annoying than anything else. He had no other skin concerns and felt fine otherwise. No fevers, chills, night sweats, or weight loss. Nothing. I examined the skin on his nose: There were perfectly demarcated oval patches of redness on the sides of both nostrils, completely symmetrical. There was some blistering and yellowish crusting, as well.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie stood in the locker room after the final game and was simultaneously optimistic and clinical in his dissection of the team's 2014 season. He was optimistic about the young talent on the roster but clinical about the problems. He identified three areas that need fixing: turnovers, red-zone inefficiency, and too many deep passes against the defense. The first two are a lot about the quarterback. In that way, Lurie helped to frame the debate that will consume the franchise and the city until a decision is made.

EVEN BEFORE the clues fell into place leading investigators to rescue Carlesha Freeland-Gaither, Detective James Sloan knew two things: The 22-year-old abduction victim was more clever than her captor, and she was going to make it home safely. "I won't say something if I don't believe it," Sloan said yesterday of the promise he'd made to Carlesha's mother, Keisha Gaither, early in the investigation, that she would see her daughter alive again. The first of many clues that led to Freeland-Gaither's safe return home after authorities found her in Jessup, Md., with her alleged kidnapper on Wednesday was provided by the young woman herself, police said.

BLOOMING GROVE, Pa. - He's dressed in black, or a dark hood, and has been spotted several times from a distance. His trackers think that might be intentional, showing his face in a ploy to taunt them or play games. And he has left behind clues: Serbian cigarettes and soiled diapers, the kind snipers wear when preparing to settle in a spot for a long time. As they revealed new details Wednesday about accused trooper-killer Eric Frein, state police would not say that he was in their grasp.

Fourteen years ago in a prior wave of telecom mergers, Justice Department officials determined that combining two of the nation's largest Internet portals, Excite@Home and Road Runner, posed a "gatekeeper" threat to fledgling Internet-based content companies. For a content company to reach American consumers over the Internet, they would have to go through the Excite@Home or Road Runner portals. This was too much market power concentrated in one company, and the Justice Department forced MediaOne Group Inc. to sell Road Runner before it could be acquired by AT&T.
