Police trying to identify body found under tarp

LAS VEGAS — Police in Las Vegas are trying to identify a dead body discovered underneath a tarp in a desert lot. The man’s body was found Saturday morning.

Bar doodles could be worth millions

NEW YORK CITY, NY (CNN) — An artist’s doodles on the
walls of a New York City bar could be worth a fortune! Japanese artist Yoshitomo
Nara made them 10 years ago — with a felt-tip pen — on the walls of a Manhattan
bar named “Niagara.”

The drawings are getting fresh attention after one of Nara’s
paintings sold at auction for nearly $25 million.

The bar’s management declined
to comment, but a bartender told CNN the artwork, quote: “has been a part
of the bar for a long time and will stay that way.” The drawings are
protected by a thin layer of plastic installed by the bar’s ownership.

A Sotheby’s Auction House representative estimates they could be
worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, but Nara’s rep says the artist does not
want to see the drawings sold. The rep said it was done in the spirit of the
moment and Nara isn’t interested in monetizing them, even though they’re
certainly worth some money... Read More
