WBKR Tries to Make Chicken Wing Ice Cream [Video]

We were so disappointed to learn that this was an April Fool's Joke.  See, Perry's Ice Cream (based in New York) shared that photo of Chicken Wing Ice Cream and, for some reason, we just happened to see it floating around on Facebook this week.  Before realizing it was a joke, I sent Brett on a wild goose chase to find me a quart.  I really wanted to try it but, naturally, we learned it doesn't even exist.  So, not be deterred, we decided to try and make our own chicken-flavored ice cream.  I thought Jaclyn was going to hurl her face off.  Lol!  WATCH!

UPDATE: Connections Between Missing Women in Tristate? [Photos]

Connections?  Are there connections between the handful of women who are reported missing in the tristate?  That's the question that the experts have been asking all week.  That's the question that people like me are asking.  And that's precisely why I have spent the week pouring over the details, police reports, news accounts and Facebook feeds of the tristate women who have vanished, without a trace, over the last four years. Yesterday, I posted a blog in which I tried to connect the dots between these women.  And, apparently, I am not the only person paying to attention to those dots.  I have received many emails and messages about my article from folks and observers just as concerned, bewildered and intrigued as I am.  And some responders have provided me with additional information that adds to the storylines.  For instance, there is another missing woman who truly fits the alleged victim profile and there are details in some of the other cases that give them even stronger connections to their missing counterparts.
