"BLACK UNDERWORLD & BLACK CINEMA"

While the Ward Brothers (Frank, Ted, Willie and Andrew) were pimping and trafficking cocaine in Oakland, Big Hank (top pic) was the weed kingpin.

Hank was fascinated by American entrepreneurs like J.C. Penney and quickly rose up in the Oakland drug trade through innovation.  He said: "I was the first to make a lot of money off weed!"

Hank was seen at the Oakland premiere for "The Mack," at the Roxy theater.  He was also spotted around town at the Oaks Club, 1/3 lb burger in Oakland, Quikway on Telegraph and the Lucky Lion.  He also knew Frank Ward's bottom woman (Blanche); she was murdered with Frank in his Rolls Royce.

Hank left Oakland and became the first black man (allowed) to operate a drug empire in Colombia. 

He was later arrested on charges including heroin smuggling, currency smuggling and assaulting a Federal Agent.

After evading authorities for several years, like Frank Matthews, Hank went on the run and fled to Algeria with two million in cash.

Hank would eventually return to the U.S. and turn himself in.

While in prison, he converted to Islam.

He is now known as Iman Abdul Almim Musa.

The scene in "The Mack," where Goldie's mom is murdered was loosely based on a real life incident in Max Julien's life, in which his mother was murdered.

Actress Carol Speed (The Mack) was so devastated over Frank Ward's death that she took a hiatus from acting and moved in with Sly Stone; bringing only the clothes on her back.  For the most part, they stayed high from one day to the next.

"THE UNEXPLAINED" (3 STORIES)

A room, located at Ohio University, is unavailable to students. It has been boarded up and closed off because of various paranormal reports regarding the room. Poltergeist activity has been felt: objects flying across the room, doors that open and shut by themselves, and dark shadows appearing and disappearing without explanation. The creepiest thing about this room is the demon-like face that appears in the wood grain of the door. The door has been replaced multiple times only to have the face appear again. The apparition is known to be playful, and is said to be the spirit of a student that committed suicide in the room. If being a freshman at a college university wasn’t stressful enough, imagine having to share your dorm with a ghost!

Held sacred in a Buddhist monastery in Tibet is what some claim to be the hand of a yeti. While many believe the hand is fake, many flock to the monastery to catch a glimpse. The monks consider the hand sacred and won’t allow any scientific testing. It has been said that a man named Peter Byrne smuggled the hand out of Nepal, giving it to London University for testing. William Hill ran tests on the hand with surprising results. He concluded the hand was indeed hominid, but more closely matched that of Neanderthal than modern man. In addition, tests were run by NBC for the show Unsolved Mysteries and found the hand to be “near human." The hand was then stolen, and its current location is a mystery. It is thought to be in a private collection—traded through the black market.

In 1979, the Pereira family began to encounter strange human-like faces that appeared and disappeared in their home without explanation. Both the locations and times that the faces appear have been irregular. According to the story, one day in August, Maria Gomez told her husband a face had appeared on the concrete floor in the kitchen. Her husband immediately destroyed the image with a pickaxe—only to have it appear again later.

The mayor forbade them from destroying the new face and had it cut out for testing. The faces persisted for the next 30 years, appearing as both males and females with an array of expressions on their faces. As with many other paranormal occurrences, it was found that the house was built on a graveyard and bodies were found under the house. Despite having the floor replaced multiple times and cleaning the faces with detergent, they continued to appear without explanation.

"TWISTED"

LANCASTER, WI - The jury has found Nicholas Grunke, 23, guilty in a bizarre attempted sexual abuse case where he was accused of trying to dig up a dead body to have sex with.

Grunke has been found guilty of theft, damage to property and attempted third degree sexual assault.

Grunke, his twin brother Alex and their friend Dustin Radke were caught at a Cassville Cemetery in Wisconsin in 2006. Prosecutors in the case say they were trying to dig up the body of a 20-year-old woman recently killed in a motorcycle crash.

In court Nick Grunke and Dustin Radke told the jury conflicting stories about what happened that night. Prosecutors say the evidence investigators found inside the van tells a twisted story. A tarp, duct tape, a crow bar and a box of condoms.

Dadke testified, "Nick wanted this young girl's body.(And why did he want it?) So he could have sex with it."

While on the stand, Nick Grunke admitted he planned to take the young woman's body home with him, but says sex was not on his mind. Nick Grunke said, "I was going to take it to a clearing in the woods and just kind of spend time with it....(ok, but not have sex with it?) No."

Grunke described a scene from the movie, "I'll Bury You Tomorrow" in which the main character slow danced with a corpse. He said he only planned to emulate what he saw in that movie.

But Radke tells a different story. Radke said, "Nick said numerous times over the years how he'd love to have sex with a dead body because he wouldn't want to have a woman to come home to holler at, or complain or nag at him. And he said that more than once."

Radke says when Grunke showed him the young woman's obituary (Grunke thought she was attractive) and Rake knew right away that Grunke intended to have sex with her body.

Both men said, while en route to Cassville, Alex Grunke stopped to buy a box of condoms. But during testimony each man said it was the other's idea to buy those condoms.

Alex Grunke has already been convicted of attempted theft and vandalism, but not sexual assault.

A Grunke family friend told TV9 Nick is a troubled person but never intended to have sex with the body, he only wanted to spend time with the corpse.

Susan Hutches said, "this act was a cry from the deepest part of Nick, that sought the intimacy from another human being. It had nothing to do with sex."

But the jury disagreed, siding instead with prosecutors.

Along with his two year sentence, the judge ordered Grunke to register as a sex offender. Grunke will also spend the next five to seven years in intense psychotherapy. The judge said confidential records show Grunke was the victim of a horrific crime when he was a small child.

After the sentencing, Grunke hugged his mother goodbye and a deputy immediately took him into custody.

Earlier this year, as part of a plea deal, Dustin Radke pleaded guilty to Third Degree attempted sexual assault for the same crime.

Prosecutors dropped the other two charges against Radke.

This case created a stir across Wisconsin as the state discovered it does not have any law against necrophilia, that is sexually abusing a corpse. But the State Supreme Court ruled sexual assault laws apply even if the victim is dead.

In Iowa, sexual contact with a corpse is a class D felony, carrying a sentence of up to five years in prison.
