Last Thursday, the body of a white man in his 50s was found in Philadelphia's Schuylkill River. Police confirm he had a gunshot wound to the forehead.

Now that body has been identified by the medical examiner as Philip Reitnour, a 58-year-old businessman who appeared on Shark Tank just three years ago, trying to sell the investors on a personal security app called EmergenSee.

Cause of death has not been officially determined yet, but we can safely assume foul play at this point.

Investors on the ABC reality show passed on EmergenSee — which broadcast audio and video to friends and family with the touch of a button on your smartphone — after learning Reitnour didn't develop the tech in house but rather invested $3 million of his own money paying a tech company to make it.

Interestingly, WPVI reports court records show Reitnour was three mil in debt.

We'll let you know if there are any updates on this tragic crime.

Nelly Rape Investigation STILL Going Despite Accuser Backing Out!

Nelly is not off the hook for those rape charges yet.

His accuser may have dropped her case and refused to testify against the rapper, but the police are not giving up their investigation so easily.

TMZ has learned through their law enforcement sources that Auburn police still plan to present evidence to prosecutors within the next week. The district attorney will then decide if the case is strong enough to go forward without the accuser's help.

Nelly's lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, says it's just police doing their "due diligence" but that he's confident the case will be closed soon.

If the only evidence is testimony they no longer have, it seems strange to us they would even be proceeding… Could there be something more?

What do YOU think??

Hustler Publisher Larry Flynt Offering $10 Million Reward To Anyone With Intel That Could Get Donald Trump Impeached!

Have sensitive information on Donald Trump? Larry Flynt is willing to reward you handsomely!

The dirty magazine publisher took out a full-page ad in The Washington Post on Sunday where he offered $10 million in exchange for "information leading to the impeachment and removal from office of Donald J. Trump."

Leave it to the Hustler head to get right to the point!

In the ad, Flynt listed six charges he claims make Trump worthy of impeachment, including harming the planet by withdrawing from the Paris Accords and sparking social conflict with "racial dog whistling."

But Flynt realizes that to actually overthrow King Cheeto from this throne, he must obtain "unimpeachable evidence" of Trump's wrongdoings.

Flynt also realizes that hidden below D.C. — most likely being guarded in the sewers by Kellyanne Conway — lies a jewel mine of POTUS's alleged illegal activities just waiting to be unburied!

And for the hero that recovers the incriminating evidence, found perhaps "in Trump's secret tax returns or in other records from his far flung investments" according to Flynt, a multi-million dollar reward will be given:

Melissa Etheridge Busted For Marijuana Possession At U.S.–Canada Border!

| Filed under: CanadialandDrugsLegal MattersMelissa Etheridge

Melissa Etheridge is a passionate advocate for medical marijuana. Unfortunately, that didn't help her case when she was busted for drug possession back in August.

The 56-year-old singer was traveling back to the United States from Canada when her tour bus was reportedly stopped by Customs and Border Patrol in North Dakota.

According to TMZ, the drug-sniffing dogs picked up the scent of Etheridge's substances and exposed her marijuana oil to agents.

The rocker huffed and puffed to authorities, explaining that the drug is legal in California where she uses it to manage pain from cancer — but since marijuana isn't allowed in North Dakota, troopers weren't about to let Ethridge be the only one to carry the essential oils.

So, the music legend was booked for possession of a controlled substance. She reportedly pleaded not guilty to the charge and was smiling from ear-to-ear in her mugshot, making us wonder just how long that THC oil lasts.

After using medical marijuana while undergoing chemotherapy after her 2004 breast cancer diagnosis, the musician has regularly advocated for the legalization of weed as a holistic alternative to pharmaceuticals.

She even admitted that she and her wife, Linda Wallem, regularly share joints with her two older kids, 20-year-old Bailey and 18-year-old Beckett.

We have a feeling the family won't be vacationing to North Dakota anytime soon.
