Daquan Crump, the 19-year-old who was shot 10 times in the head and face and then left in a Northeast Philadelphia construction site nearly two weeks ago, was killed by a childhood friend over $60, the proceeds of a stolen PlayStation 3 video-game system, police said Wednesday. "In their mind, this is worth a human life," Homicide Capt. James Clark said at a news conference announcing the arrest of 18-year-old Malik Anderson. "Because I didn't get a cut of a $60 profit from a used PlayStation game, I'm going to stand over top and shoot a kid that I've been friends with since I was 10, 11 years old," Clark said.

"She was named 'Casanova' because we introduced her to the public on Valentine's Day, and we were looking for a name that could be abbreviated in either a male or a female way," said Sara Honovich, the aquarium's director of marketing and sales.

SOME PEOPLE collect stamps, dolls or autographs. Others collect cars, coins or tea cups. And there's a guy in Australia who holds the world record for the biggest and longest-held collection of belly-button lint. Paul Duffy collects mementos of murder. And then he sells them, to whoever pays. In a macabre industry whose merchants can be counted on two hands, Duffy put the Philly area on the "murderabilia" map last month when he began selling killers' artwork, letters and even hair, blood and fingernail clippings from his Coatesville, Chester County, home.
