BROOKLYN (PIX11) – Homicide detectives think someone who worked in the New York City transit system — or knew it very well — was behind the gruesome, 2005 dismemberment of 19-year-old Rashawn Brazell, who was supposed to meet his mother for lunch on Valentine’s Day that year.

Instead, his torso, legs, and one arm were found in trash bags in a subway tunnel on February 17, 2005. Another arm and hand were discovered at a Greenpoint recycling plant a couple of days later. His head was never recovered.

“I didn’t get to look on him again,” his mother, Desire Brazell, said through tears in a recent interview. “No one deserves to end up being thrown away, like they’re just trash.”

Desire was working in a homeless shelter in Washington Heights on the day her youngest son vanished.

Rashawn was supposed to get his taxes done that Monday…

PRETORIA, South Africa (CNN) – A judge found Oscar Pistorius guilty of culpable homicide, the South African term for unintentionally — but unlawfully — killing a person.

The verdict comes a day after Judge Thokozile Masipa cleared Pistorius of murder in the killing of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp — but he could still end up behind bars.

The maximum prison sentence for culpable homicide is 15 years.

Sentencing could be weeks away and will come after more legal argument.

The verdict also dealt with three other charges, all weapons-related.

He was found not guilty of two — a car sunroof shooting incident and illegal possession of ammunition at his house. B

The judge found Pistorius guilty of the third: a charge involving a shooting at a restaurant.

Weapons charges

In a shooting from a car’s sunroof, Judge Thokozile Masipa said the state failed to prove its case beyond a reasonable…

Morgan Freeman is set to join the cast of Universal and MRC’s “Ted 2.”

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but sources say Freeman would play an iconic civil rights lawyer who comes into the picture when Ted needs to resolve some legal issues. Seth MacFarlane, who is back writing, directing and voicing the titular vulgar teddy bear, was said to be looking for high-profile actor to join the cast in a fun role and showed interest in Freeman from the start.

Star Mark Wahlberg is also returning for the sequel, as is the majority of the supporting cast. Amanda Seyfried is joining the cast, but the idea is to fill the remaining roles with a mix of cameos of pop culture icons and A-list actors playing parts outside of their comfort zones.

The pic is currently filming in Boston. Scott Stuber is back as producer with MRC co-financing the pic.

In Top Five, Chris Rock plays a comedian-turned-film star named Andre Allen whose encounter with a journalist played by Rosario Dawson forces him to recollect on his past life as a comedian. The film takes place in one 24 hour time frame, which Rock told Variety is similar to TV shows such Louis C.K.’s Louie and Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm:

Louis C.K. is one of my good friends. I watch his show. I watch ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm.’ No one has done a movie like this. Just a movie about a comedian, a day in the life.

The film features appearances from Tracy Morgan, Kevin Hart, J.B Smoove, Cedric the Entertainer and a bevvy of other famous comedians. Rock…
