"C.J.," who jolted the city with her anonymous claims that she was deliberately infecting men with AIDS, was a hoax created by a teenager and copied by up to six other women, police said yesterday. "We want to assure the community that this purported danger does not exist," said Deputy Police Chief Ray Hawkins. The hoax began with the letter published in the September issue of Ebony magazine. In it, a woman who claimed to be infected with the AIDS virus said she was having sex with men to deliberately spread the virus in retaliation against the man who had infected her. Later, Dallas radio and television stations got calls from a woman repeating the claim.

DALLAS - A Dallas woman who super-glued her 2-year-old daughter's hands to a wall also beat the girl so badly that she suffered bleeding on her brain, a doctor testified Monday during the mother's sentencing hearing. Elizabeth Escalona faces up to life in prison after pleading guilty in July to attacking her daughter, Jocelyn Cedillo, last September. Police say that the 23-year-old mother attacked the toddler due to potty-training problems. During a sentencing hearing that began Monday, prosecutors presented gruesome photos and details of the attack.

The leasing arrangement was unusual in that lease payments of $1,050 per month were made with government funds while Rostenkowski held title to the vehicles, according to the Illinois Secretary of State's office.

AS THE 50th anniversary of the assassination of JFK nears, we have "Parkland," a docudrama that reimagines the whole thing as an episode of "ER. " The movie concentrates on events of Nov. 22, 1963, at Dallas' Parkland Hospital, where President Kennedy was taken after being shot. It plays like a standard emergency-room drama - an overmatched young resident (Zac Efron) an efficient and compassionate nurse (Marcia Gay Harden) and a take-charge senior physician (Colin Hanks). The dynamics are repeated soon after, when the president's assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, is himself shot, and the same doctors attend to his wounds, amid the same sort of ER crash-cart hubbub.

On his radio show last night, Terrell Owens offered the best evidence yet that his overdose this week wasn't a suicide attempt. "If I was suicidal, I mean, of all that I've gone through, I probably would have already committed suicide if that was the case," Owens said, referring to the Eagles dumping him midway through last season, only months after he helped them nearly win the Super Bowl. "If I didn't commit suicide then, why would I do it now?" Owens, now a Cowboys receiver, was hospitalized Tuesday night for mixing painkillers prescribed for a hand injury with his usual supplements, then had to deny a police report that he had attempted suicide.

Police closed the Terrell Owens case yesterday, calling it nothing more than an "accidental overdose. " The 911 call that started it all was released, too, revealing little beyond what was already known: that T.O. swallowed "too many pills. " And Owens fired his personal trainer for telling a newspaper that Owens had been despondent over private issues. Each piece of evidence that came to light yesterday seemed to square with T.O.'s version of events - that he made a mistake, had a bad reaction and was by no means trying to kill himself.
