"It makes no sense," said Ross, 34, adding that no witnesses have stepped forward in the “broad daylight” murder. Such tributes have become a common sight in the poorer neighborhoods of Rochester, a city of 206,000 people in the northwestern part of the state. The per-capita murder rate climbed 30 percent in 2020 among 34 major cities surveyed by Richard Rosenfeld, a criminologist at the University of Missouri in St. Louis. Evans said the murder surge reflects rising problems with drug trafficking, criminal gangs and illegal firearms during the pandemic. The city’s police union, the Rochester Police Locust Club, said the department has only 12 investigators to pursue murder cases.

But this week the 60-year-old former accountant flew from North Carolina to California to show support for Britney Spears, the pop star who has lived under a legal conservatorship for more than a decade. A person protests in support of Britney Spears on the day of a conservatorship case hearing at Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles on June 23, 2021. When they met again at a meet-and-greet in the late 2010s, he perceived that Spears’ demeanor had changed; her interaction with fans felt more restrictive. Spears’ fans were particularly devastated by her revelation that she does not have reproductive autonomy. “I think hearing testimony directly from her is a turning point in how the public perceives her and the story of her career,” she said.

CHICAGO — Doug Emhoff said in his first one-on-one interview as second gentleman that Vice President Kamala Harris has likely been treated differently because she is a woman of color and defended Harris from Republican criticism on her role addressing the root causes of migration. Emhoff shrugged off suggestions that Harris' decision to go to the border now was motivated in part by the former president. "I'm only in this role because the country elected the first woman vice president and that happens to be my wife, Kamala Harris. "Kamala Harris has had a long history with the Jewish community, not just because she married me. As for whether he and Harris have discussed a second presidential run, Emhoff said they are "not talking about that."

Conan O’Brien’s farewell to late-night TV has reached its finale. His show “Conan” has been chockablock with his famous friends and staff members trotting out fan-favorite characters in recent weeks. “Conan” has been on cable channel TBS since 2010, but this send-off is effectively for Mr. O’Brien’s entire run as a late-night host, which started in 1993 and included two previous shows on NBC. As former “Saturday Night Live” star Bill Hader said when he appeared on Mr. O’Brien’s show this week, “It was the first thing in comedy that was mine. It was the first thing that, like, my parents didn’t understand.”Among countless sketches on the 4,368 episodes that Mr. O’Brien and his collaborators produced, here are five examples that mark the evolution of his late-night run:

‘I Carry You With Me’ Review: From Puebla to New York

That’s not the case for the heart-stricken hero of “I Carry You With Me,” which is opening in theaters in New York and Los Angeles in advance of its national release next month. The complex, often confusing narrative begins in 1994, in Puebla, Mexico, where Iván Garcia (Armando Espitia), a young man with outsize dreams, is washing dishes and doing other menial work in a modest restaurant. Iván’s struggle in a profession for which he feels he has a gift is one track of the story. The other is his passionate attraction to Gerardo Zabaleta (Christian Vazquez), a teacher he meets during a chance encounter in a club. We see Iván and Gerardo in flashbacks to their childhoods; Gerardo suffers terribly at the hands of a father who sees him as insufficiently masculine.

The conservatorship began in 2008 when Spears suffered a mental health breakdown. Lisa MacCarley, a probate and conservativship lawyer who supports the #FreeBritney movement, said Spears had been "treated shabbily" under the conservatorship. “Britney Spears needs to get into an office of a competent and independent legal adviser and weigh her options,” MacCarley said.

LOS ANGELES — A gallery association that formed here a year ago to promote artists online at a time when spaces were closed because of the pandemic is now organizing its first offline event: Gallery Weekend Los Angeles. The event, from Gallery Association Los Angeles, will run July 28 through Aug. 1, with at least 74 participating galleries and nonprofit organizations offering a mix of exhibitions and events like artist talks and performances as well as some extended, late-night hours. The weekend is timed to overlap with Felix, an art fair at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel that debuted in 2019 and is expected to draw collectors to town. “Summer has never been a slow period for us, like it is in New York or cities in Europe, because so many people from those places travel to L.A. over the summer,” said Kibum Kim, a partner in the gallery Commonwealth and Council and a member of the gallery association’s operating committee. “So I think we all put on great exhibitions over summer months.”His gallery will have three exhibitions: experimental photography by Elle Pérez; a new video by Mariah Garnett; and an off-site project in a Pasadena storefront by Cayetano Ferrer that uses building fragments from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s recent campus demolition.

He said he had turned down two offers to do a television show many years ago, one from the producer Scott Rudin, the other from the celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain. The news media descended on him, and he gave interviews to Howard Stern and Barbara Walters. He discussed his struggles with gambling, sex addiction and rage. And he said he had turned down two TV offers because the medium could never capture his true self.
