Arrests in Home Invasion Attacks, Joe Butterball Tamburro Rests

Philadelphia police arrested a suspect in the attack of an 87 year old and her son during a home invasion on Tuesday in West Philly. The suspect, Jimmy Morrison, was arrested in Chester County after he gave a fake name during a traffic stop. The victims, Yvonne Gaines and her 62 year old son James Brinkly are recovering from their stab wounds.

Upper Darby police now have a second suspect in custody involved with the robbery and assault of a wheelchair bound victim. Police say the widely circulated video of the assault helped lead to the surrender of 21 year old Keenan Smith of Southwest Philadelphia. The video shows two men pulling the victim, who suffers from Muscular Dystrophy, from his wheelchair and dragged across the floor before robbing his apartment.

Joe "Butterball" Tamburro was laid to rest today after a standing room only funeral at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul in Center City. Butter had been one of the city's most loved radio dj's since the 1960's. It's rare to see a white dj on black radio station like WDAS. It is even rarer to see 5 decades of success at it. Butter had soul.

Clear skies tonight, Down to 72 in Philadelphia.
