‘They’ll Never See Their Mother Again’: Vigil Held For Woman Whose Body Was Found In Trash Can As Police Search For Killer

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Loved ones gathered at a vigil Friday night for a mother who was found murdered earlier this week. Her body was discarded in a trash can in Frankford.

The victim’s daughter wants to know why someone would murder her mother and throw her body in a garbage can. The community mourned the 36-year-old who was taken too soon.

The family of Kioma Diehl is choosing to lean on God after she was murdered and her body was found early Wednesday morning.

“She didn’t deserve to get put in anybody’s trash can. They just wanted her gone,” Kioma’s 19-year-old daughter, Kiani Diehl, said.

Kiani is trying to stay strong for her younger siblings, but it isn’t easy.

“She was a cheerful, joyful, loving, caring, honest person. I don’t know who wouldn’t love her,” Kiani said.

From the size of the crowd, Diehl was loved by many. Her body was found on the 4600 block of Leiper Street wrapped in plastic inside of a trash bag.

Police are still looking for whoever is responsible for her murder.

“I just want to say like, ‘Why? You hurt my family, especially her kids, so bad,’” Kiani said.

“It’s a shame that we live in a day and age where people don’t even have a conscious. If you know who did it, because everybody should be talking about it on social media, say something,” family friend Jennifer Wilson said.

As detectives continue to investigate, the family is asking for your help.

“Whoever it is, turn themselves in to give the rightful justice and so that the kids can get answers to why they will never see their mother again,” Wilson said.

There is a GoFundMe to help with expenses and a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

‘Absolutely A Nuisance To Our Community’: Camden Introduces Bill To Crack Down On Illegal Dirt Bike, ATV Riding

CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) – The city of Camden is taking aim at illegal off-road vehicles dirt bikes and ATVs used by some on busy streets. Officials are now working on getting them off the road.

It won’t take you long making your way through Camden to spot drivers on dirt bikes and ATVs that are not regulated for the street but on them anyway.

“I don’t come out here to make trouble for nobody. I come to enjoy myself,” a rider who goes by Llama said.

Ever so, Llama says many folks just like him don’t exactly follow the rules of the road.

“We do run lights,” Llama said. “We don’t stop at the stop signs all the time.”

He admits that illegal ATV and dirt bike riding is dangerous, not just for pedestrians and those in sedans and trucks but for the riders themselves.

“I’ve done seen a person lose their leg in front me,” Llama said.

Just look at what happened to one man in Camden earlier this year, so it’s not hard to imagine that officials have had enough and they’ve started cracking down.

“They are absolutely a nuisance to our community.” Mayor Frank Moran said.

Moran, along with police and elected officials, announced a new bill Friday that would impose stricter fines and penalties for illegal dirt bikes and ATVs.

“First offense, the vehicle is to be impounded for at least seven days and the owner is subjected to pay a fee up to $1,000,” New Jersey Sen. Nilsa Cruz-Perez said.

Officials also reminded residents to use the Stop It app, making it easy and anonymous to report dangerous activity.

“This allows you to send us pictures, send us video,” Camden County Police Department Lt. Zsakheim James said. “To chat with us, to let us know the locations of these vehicles while they are parked.”

It appears to be working.

There is a garage full of confiscated vehicles, some impounded just in the past few days.

“I’ve seen the difference, I support it 100%,” said Camden resident Rosita Torres, who backs the push to get the bikes off the road.

But Torres knows it’s not an overnight fix and she’ll see plenty more wheelies before illegal riding is finally under control.

Since the crackdown began, Camden police say they’ve confiscated 28 illegal ATVs and dirt bikes.o

1 Dead, Another Fighting For Their Life After Strawberry Mansion Double Shooting, Police Say

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A John Doe is dead after police say he was shot multiple times in a double shooting. The incident happened at 9 p.m. on the 3200 block of West Montgomery Avenue in the city’s Strawberry Mansion neighborhood on Friday.

Police say the man suffered three gunshot wounds to his leg and one to his chest. He was rushed to an area hospital, where he later died.

The other victim,a 26-year-old man, was taken to the hospital in critical condition after he was shot several times throughout his body, according to police.

At this time, no arrests have been made but investigators have discovered a weapon at the scene.

The investigation remains ongoing.

Eagles flock to Citizens Bank Park for Carson Wentz’s AO1 Foundation charity softball game

PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — It was a perfect night for a ballgame at Citizens Bank Park Friday — softball, not baseball — but a different team took the field in the name of charity.

Some Eagles players took part in a home run derby, then it was offense versus defense, all for Carson Wentz’s AO1 Foundation charity softball game.

Matt Mroz was one of many fans who showed up wearing their Eagles green.

“Carson Wentz always puts on a great show,” he said. “He’s doing this for a great reason, a great fundraiser. It’s great to see the team get together.

“It’s awesome when you see the teams come together, playing on different stadiums,” he continued. “It’s great.”

The players were definitely having fun taking swings, but Al Cybart noticed not every player connected.

“The should stick to their Sunday jobs,” he joked.

But it’s all about having fun.

“It’s all about fun, it’s all about raising money for a great cause,” Cybart said. “Carson is wonderful in the community. We’re going to back him the matter what he does.”

Wentz didn’t play but coached the offense during Friday’s match. He signed plenty of autographs for fans before the game.

Whether you’re looking for a great restaurant or a cool place to shop, this town has plenty to offer.

“Wayne over the past 20 years has grown tremendously,” Chris Todd said.

Todd owns Christopher’s Restaurant located along Restaurant Row in Downtown Wayne.

“Christopher’s is a family-friendly restaurant, we’ve been here for 18 years,” Todd said.

You’ll find American comfort food, but if that’s not what you’re craving, there are plenty of other restaurants offering everything from Spanish to Chinese or Italian.

How The Main Line Got Its Famous Moniker

“The dining is very quaint. You have so many different types of places to go,” one woman said.

And Todd believes that’s one of Wayne’s secrets to success.

“There’s choice, every restaurant’s different, every shop’s different, that’s the key,” Todd said.

Cathy Fiebach owns Mainpoint Books and loves how easy it is to get around town.

“I think it’s very walkable. You can park your car and walk a few blocks and do a lot of different things,” she said.

No car? No problem.

“One of the things I love about Wayne is there’s a train station literally half a block away. So you can come in from the city, you can come for the afternoon. You can spend the whole afternoon here doing different activities and go back into the city and you feel like you really got away,” Feeback said.

While you’re here, you might consider soaking in some nostalgia by catching a movie at The Anthony Wayne. Built in 1928, it looks almost exactly as it did when it first opened.

You’ll find another piece of history at The Wayne Hotel, which is on the National Register of Historical Places.

“It was build in 1906 as a hotel and has been through several incarnations, and in the 80s, was brought back to being a hotel. Now it’s really kind of like and iconic option on the Main Line as a boutique hotel,” General Manager David Brennan said,.

The hotel’s accommodations are just one of the reasons you might want to stay at The Wayne.

“Any of our guests that are staying here never feel like they’re isolated to just the location and the site of the hotel, that there’s plenty that they can explore safely and enjoyably outside of the hotel in town,” Brennan said.

So whether you like shopping, dining or exploring, Wayne has plenty to offer.

There Are Many Stories To Be Told Inside The Sports Legends of Delaware County Museum

WAYNE, PA. (CBS) – From world-class equestrians who competed at Devon, to world-famous competitors who once called Delaware County home, the Philadelphia suburb that has become a local meme also has its own museum of memorabilia and photos of some truly inspiring athletes.

Inside the Radnor Township Municipal building, you can celebrate the greatest athletes in the history of this area.

“The common denominator, the common theme is that these are Delaware County athletes that achieved something on the international or national scale,” Sports Legends of Delaware County Museum executive Jim Vankonski said.

The Sports Legends of Delaware County Museum has seven galleries with some very well known stars of yesteryear celebrated.

“We have the Mickey Vernon, Danny Murtaugh gallery devoted to baseball,” Vankonski said. “We have a wide world of women’s sports gallery devoted to our female athletes from Delaware County. And we have our Emlen Tunnell football gallery.”

Tunnell was perhaps the most accomplished athlete ever to come out of Delco.

The Bryn Mawr native and Radnor High graduate was the first African American ever enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

There are many stories to be told inside the walls.

Perhaps you remember Billy “White Shoes” Johnson, a Marcus Hook native who made end-zone celebrations popular.

Or how about a mini shrine to Malvern native and Phillies announcer Ben Davis, who played seven seasons in the majors?

You can find many other artifacts from across the sports landscape at the museum.

“We have two managers from Delaware County that have won World Series,” Vankonski said. “We have the Mike Scoscia game-worn jersey right there, No. 14. And then we have a jersey from Danny Murtaugh, No. 40.”

Maybe the most surprising piece of history is that there are so many gold medal winning athletes from Delco, nine in total.

One particular exhibit showcases some rare swimming gear.

“It happens to have Jane Backman’s bathing suits, swimming suits, she wore when she won her gold medal in 1968,” Vankonski said, “and when she won her gold medal in 1972.”

From the pool to the hardwood to the gridiron, there’s something for all sports fans to enjoy at the Sports Legends of Delaware County Museum.

World-Renowned Devon Horse Show And Country Fair Underway On The Main Line

WAYNE, Pa. (CBS) — The 2019 Devon Horse Show and Country Fair is underway. It’s the oldest and largest outdoor multi-breed competition in the United States, drawing top competition from around the world.

And there are some traditions that are very unique to the show. Horses and Ferris wheels; sweet treats and ladies dressed to impress.

“It’s an occasion, ladies love to get dressed up,” milliner Katie Whaley said.

The Devon Horse Show is a pre-summer tradition now in its 123rd year.

How The Main Line Got Its Famous Moniker

To look the part, CBS3 anchor Janelle Burrell got some help from

Whaley, a milliner selling her handmade creations for 27 years at Devon and has even created hats for the British royals, says Devon is one of the highlights of the year.

“It’s a tradition. Hats and Devon go hand in hand,” she said.

Next up, traditional Devon goodies. Karen Maynard showed off some signature sweets.

“You’re looking at the very famous Devon Lemonstick, which is lemon that is cut in the middle, and a perforated candy stick so when you suck on it, it becomes sweet,” Maynard said.

And then there’s the Devon fudge. But the oldest tradition is the stars of the show — the horses.

Alexis DiPasqua is one of the equestrians competing at Devon, where you’ll find small kids all the way up to Olympian competitors vying for a coveted Devon blue ribbon.

DiPasqua is a student at Saint Joseph’s University. She’s been competing in Devon since she was four.

“We qualified for 15 shows to get here, so it’s just such an honor to be here every time I do this,” she said.

And there’s even more that Devon has to offer, including all of the attractions of the Country Fair. From shopping to games and rides, Devon is a tradition to continue for generations to come.

Officials expect to sell more than 7,000 Lemonsticks at Devon this year. And they’ll sell over 1,500 pounds of fudge.

The Devon Horse Show continues throughout the weekend.

How The Main Line Got Its Famous Moniker

WAYNE, Pa. (CBS) – A number of unique towns make up the area known as the Main Line. But just how did it get its famous moniker? With its bucolic streets and leafy trees, it’s not hard to imagine that this area was once considered the country.

The Main Line of Public Works was a humble state-owned rail line that carried cargo west from Philadelphia to south of York, Pennsylvania.

In 1857, the state sold it – and the land around it – to the private Pennsylvania Rail Road, which built train stops and villages for Philadelphia’s wealthy from Overbrook to Paoli.

“It turned into a lifestyle where you lived, you got away from the city,” Lower Merion Historical Society president Gerald Francis said.

‘It’s A Great Town’: Pat’s Barber Shop In Wayne Has Been A Main Line Staple Since 1975

Merion Station, one of the many built, has been standing since 1914.

“The railroad even renamed our towns here to make it more gentrified,” Francis said.

The Main Line has inspired iconic films like “The Philadelphia Story,” which was based on the socialite Helen Hope Montgomery Scott and the Ardrossan mansion in Radnor Township.

It’s also home to several institutions of high learning, including Cabrini University, Haverford College and Villanova University.

Lancaster Avenue links the towns of the Main Line. Many of them have preserved their historic business districts.

The old Bryn Mawr movie theater is now the Bryn Mawr Film Institute.

“Historically, in sort of the late ’20s, early ’30s there were theaters every few blocks all along Lancaster Avenue so we’re really lucky to have it,” Bryn Mawr Film Institute director of Marketing Gina Izzo said.

The old-fashioned Main Street feel is one reason Dr. Bernadette Wheeler was inspired to open a shop on Lancaster Avenue, named Something Different by Eric, which was named for her son who has Down syndrome.

Many of their items are made by people with disabilities.

“We wanted to actually have a place that was in the middle of the Main Line,” Wheeler said. “We didn’t want to hide it. We wanted it to be where people can see what we’re doing and come in and celebrate people with disabilities.”

The Main Line might no longer be the country, but it’s still an escape in its own way.

‘It’s A Great Town’: Pat’s Barber Shop In Wayne Has Been A Main Line Staple Since 1975

WAYNE, Pa. (CBS) — “It’s a great town.” That’s Pat the barber and he’s talking about Wayne.

“It’s a family town, a college town, a business town. It’s got a little bit of everything,” Pat said.

Pat is part of the fabric of this bucolic town nestled along the Main Line. He got his start just up the road at a barber shop on the campus of Villanova University.

“That was about ’64 through ’69. It was great, busy all the time — kids, professors, workers,” Pat said.

Pat’s been here on North Wayne Avenue since 1975.

“My buddy got an opportunity here and brought me in as a partner. And then he moved on and I’ve been here ever since,” he said.

It’s a relic of the past: a one-chair barber shop. But don’t worry, Pat’s not going anywhere.

He says he wants to run the shop “until I can’t do it no more.”

With CBD Products Gaining Popularity, FDA Considering Regulating The Industry

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Even though there is a lot of confusion about its legal status, CBD products have surged in popularity. Now the Food and Drug Administration is considering regulating the industry.

The FDA on Friday held its first hearing on regulating CBD products that are made from cannabis compounds.

More than 100 people spoke Friday and there is a lot of interest in the $100 million industry that’s making a lot of health claims.

CBD has spread like a weed into food, cosmetics and supplements. Now, even the industry itself is begging for closer government oversight.

“The FDA does not have the luxury of time,” Council for Responsible Nutrition assistant general council Megan Olsen said. “They must act quickly to address a market that is out of control.”

Sheetz Launches Extensive Selection Of CBD Products

On Friday, the FDA took its first step toward regulating the exploding the CBD market, hosting an all-day hearing, live-streamed to the public.

“There is significant confusion in the market, businesses don’t know what is legally permissible and some are making health claims in the absence of clear regulation guidelines,” National Cannabis Industry Association director of public policy Andrew Kline said.

CBD is derived from cannabis, but unlike marijuana it contains only trace amounts of THC – the ingredient that creates a high.

It’s been marketed as a remedy for everything from anxiety to pain to insomnia, but researchers say the science is still undecided.

CBD Effective In Treating Heroin Addiction, Study Finds

“I think the public should just again have healthy skepticism,” Margaret Haney, a neurobiology professor at Columbia University Medical Center, said. “Don’t believe everything you hear or see about CBD.”

Experts say for the thousands of CBD products being sold there is little data to guide dosage levels, expiration dates or manufacturing protocols.

“We hope we get better guidance from the FDA,” Natural Releaf owner Jerry Lin said.

No decisions are expected any time soon from the FDA, however.

CVS Begins Selling CBD-Infused Products

But the hearing is considered an important first step in corralling an industry that some describe as the Wild West.

For now, the FDA has said CBD is not allowed in food and drinks.

But some states like Colorado allow it.

In New York City, restaurants and stores continue to sell CBD food products despite being warned.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Bill Cosby has dropped his countersuit against seven women who accused him of sexually assaulting them.

Court papers filed Friday show the four-year defamation case in Massachusetts is now over. Cosby’s insurer had settled with the women last month for an undisclosed sum.

The 81-year-old comedian objected to the settlement and vowed to pursue his counterclaims. Spokesman Andrew Wyatt said Friday that Cosby dropped the case “to focus on other matters.”

The women involved in the defamation case include Tamara Green, Barbara Bowman and Therese Serignese.

Lawyer Joe Cammarata says his clients believe they are “truth tellers.” He had planned to take Cosby’s deposition if he pursued his countersuit.

Heritage Pharmaceuticals pays $7M to settle allegations it fixed drug prices

PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — A New Jersey pharmaceutical company will pay more than $7 million to settle civil allegations that it fixed drug prices.  

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Heritage Pharmaceuticals inflated prices and received kickbacks from other drug companies, all between 2012 and 2015. 

Heritage, based in Eatontown, New Jersey, also has to pay $250,000 as part of a deal to avoid criminal prosecution. 

The drugs were supplied to Medicare, Medicaid, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and the U.S. Department of Defense’s TRICARE program.

“Consumers have the right to generic drugs sold at prices set by competition, not collusion,” said Assistant Attorney General Makan Delrahim of the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division. “Heritage and its co-conspirators cheated and exploited American patients to pad their bottom line.”

The case is part of the Department of Justice’s probe into rising costs in the the generic drug industry.
