Two stories this morning

Both are from the Chicago Tribune.

The first story is about a missing girl...

Sarah Montgomery, 11, was last seen on Sunday by her father in the 6400 block of South Langley Avenue, according to police.

At the time, she was wearing a dark waist-length jacket with a fur-lined hood, navy blue pants with gold stripes and navy blue gym shoes.

Police described Montgomery as an African-American of medium complexion, 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighing 90 pounds. They added that she may appear older than she actually is.

Those with information on Montgomery's whereabouts are asked to contact the Police Department's Calumet Area special-victims unit at 312-747-8274.
OK this second story let's go back to Kanye's mother for a second. Remember that last night I noticed that the Sun-Times in the email edition had a headline that suggested that Kanye's mother died during cosmetic surgery. Well the Tribune hints at it today...
The Los Angeles County coroner's office was scheduled to conduct an autopsy Wednesday on Donda West, mother and manager of hip-hop star Kanye West, amid reports that she died of complications from cosmetic surgery.

A statement issued by the family late Monday offered no details about how West died, but the coroner's office cited a recent surgical procedure as a possible cause. A California surgeon said through a spokeswoman that he had declined to perform cosmetic surgery on West months ago because she had a pre-existing condition.

West, 58, who stopped breathing at her home in Los Angeles on Saturday, was brought to the Centinela Freeman Regional Medical Center in Marina del Rey by paramedics, hospital spokeswoman Cyndee Woelfle told the Tribune. Woelfle said it was her understanding that West had had some cosmetic surgery, and that her "problems were a result of the surgery but it was not done at this hospital."

On Monday, Patricia Green, a publicist for Donda West, told news media she understood West had undergone cosmetic surgery; later, Green backed away from that statement.

A spokeswoman for Dr. Andre Aboolian, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, told The Associated Press that Donda West had approached him months ago about having plastic surgery but he declined to perform it because of a pre-existing condition. He said he never heard back from her. Aboolian told West that she needed to get a medical clearance before he would agree to do the surgery, said his publicist, Jo-Ann Geffen.

Aboolian was concerned about a condition West had that could have caused a heart attack during surgery, Geffen said.
Very unfortunate!
