Raids at Advanced Urgent Care Centers; NJ College Student Found; Wentz and DE Boy's Emotional Story
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

Federal agents and local law enforcement officers are conducting raids at several urgent care providers in the area as part of an apparent pill mill investigation. DEA, FBI, and U.S. Marshals were out collecting evidence from at least two locations of Advanced Urgent Care. One location is on the 9400 block of Roosevelt Boulevard near Grant Ave. in Northeast Philadelphia. The other location is at 126 Easton Road near York Road in Willow Grove. The locations were taped off with police tape and agents could be seen bring in DEA evidence boxes. Authorities have not commented on the exact nature of their activities. The Willow Grove location was previously raided in July 2015. Dr. Mehdi Nikparvar owns the seven locations.

The body of an 18-year-old New Jersey college student who has been missing for over month has been found near campus. Nicholas Pratico was found on Old Trenton Road at 10 a.m. Monday across the street from Mercer County Community College where he was a freshman. An autopsy will be performed to determine cause of death. Pratico was reported missing by his family of the night of September 20th. He was last seen on campus that afternoon. Pratico was from Hamilton and went to Notre Dame High School in Lawrence Township.

Yesterday, ESPN aired the emotional story of 10-year-old boy from Wilmington, DE who recently lost his fight with cancer and his connection with Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz. Lukas Kusters was a diehard young Eagles fan who got the nickname "the Dutch Destroyer" for his own performance on the football field. He had an even bigger fight starting in April 2016 when at 8-years-old he was diagnosed with cancer. Carson Wentz sent a video message to him in the hospital wishing him well. Eventually, Lukas was able to meet his hero and thank him for the inspiration. He gave Wentz one of his "Dutch Destroyer" bracelets. Lukas passed away two weeks after that meeting and was buried wearing a Wentz jersey. If you look closely, you can see Wentz wearing that rubber bracelet during the game. To get your own bracelet go to: Watch the video segment below:
