    United States Marshals Service(OVERLAND PARK, Kan.) -- Frazier Glenn Cross, the man accused of murder in the shootings of three people outside Jewish facilities in Kansas last week was, for all practical purposes, born at the age of 49.    

    The federal government gave him that name when he was released from prison in 1990, along with a new social security number and a new place to live, not far from the Missouri River in western Iowa.

    The idea was to erase any record of the man he had been before: Frazier Glenn...

    Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Five former Buffalo Bills cheerleaders, known as the Buffalo Jills, are accusing their team of demeaning treatment and unfair pay.

    “Our dream as being a Buffalo Jills cheerleader was taken advantage of,” former cheerleader identified only as Maria P. told ABC affiliate WKBW.

  • Is Jerrod Niemann Secretly Writing Songs for a New Garth Brooks Project?

    Sony Music NashvilleGarth Brooks is expected to announce plans for a massive world tour in the coming months, and he's hinted there might be some new music to go along with the trek. Since Jerrod Niemann had a hand in writing several of Garth's singles, including 2005's "Good Ride Cowboy," we wondered if Jerrod might know something about Garth's recording plans.

    "When I chat with him, I don't hit him up for a bunch of details," Jerrod tells ABC News Radio. "You know, I wouldn't probably trust myself with any...
