J. Shelby Bryan, Anna Wintour's Boyfriend, Owes The IRS $1.2 Million
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Many non-fashion people don't know that Anna Wintour has a boyfriend named J. Shelby Bryan. Even more are unaware that he owes the U.S. government $1.2 million in taxes. The Telegraph reports that Bryan, a telecommunications executive and former Clinton fundraiser from Texas, has owed the IRS money for years. He's reportedly failed to keep up payments on his Texas properties and "energy companies," with missed filings totaling $1.6 million by 2006 ($400,000 of which he's since paid back). The IRS has been "very accommodating," Bryan told The Telegraph, adding, "I would have loved to have [cleared the entire tax bill at once] -– if I had the cash I could have." But the businessman, once valued at $30 million, hit hard times about a decade ago when his company, ICG Communications Inc., entered a downward spiral. Now he is on a payment plan with the IRS. Yikes. That's not the sort of glamorous state of affairs we associate with Anna Wintour. Read more at Telegraph.co.uk ...

Manhunt for kidnap-slaying suspect has small-town Mississippi residents fearful, vigilant
Fox News - almost 5 years
A Mississippi manhunt for a fugitive accused of kidnapping and a double slaying had small town residents on lockdown Thursday and shattered the feeling of safety in a place where everyone knows their neighbors. The hunt for Adam Mayes and the two young sisters he is accused of kidnapping has encompassed parts of at least three counties in northern Mississippi. Federal agents, state troopers and SWAT teams wearing protective gear and armed with high powered rifles have made multiple forays into the woods in search of Mayes or a hideout he may have used. Authorities say they think the missing girls, Alexandria Bain, 12, and Kyliyah Bain, 8, are still with Mayes, nearly two weeks after he fled with them. Shelby Bryan, 40, is a cashier at the County Line No.1, where Mayes was seen on video after the girls disappeared. She said people are frightened and upset. "Some people don't want to be alone. Some women are scared to go hom ...
