Viet Nam News by Mai Hiên Lê Kiều from the Central Highlands Province of Đắk Lắk never thought she would fall in love with someone through social media.

Graduation open house invitation wording
Brian McCollum Detroit Free Press Published 8:01 AM EST Jan 26, 2019 In the age of social media, it's easier than ever for pop artists to connect with their fans. But nothing beats a good old-fashioned living room. That was the scene of the action Friday afternoon at a cozy house in Dearborn Heights, where singer-songwriter Quinn XCII (that's "Quinn 92") dropped in to give several young fans a sneak peek at his forthcoming music.

The 38-year-old man accused of kidnapping Olivia Ambrose, a 23-year-old Jamaica Plain woman, and holding her against her will in his Charlestown apartment was ordered Wednesday to undergo a 20-day mental health evaluation at Bridgewater State Hospital. A court clinician who examined Victor Pena made the recommendation for further evaluation, telling the judge the 38-year old was complaining of symptoms of psychosis, including hearing voices and having paranoid thoughts. “He does not appear to know why he is in court today, can’t name the charge, and simply can’t engage with any sort of reasonable communication with his attorney,” Dr. Jodie Shapiro said of Pena, who she pointed out was emotionally “overwrought” in the courtroom.

Olivia Ambrose was reportedly at Hennessy’s bar near Boston’s Faneuil Hall with friends and her twin sister, Franny, on Saturday night. They were there to see a band. “We were all here,” Franny told WBZ. “We were just dancing in front of the band and then somewhere, just like around 10 p.m., I don’t know, I guess we got separated and then she left at 11.” On Sunday, after failing to reach her, Ambrose’s family filed a missing person report. And on Tuesday, after an “extensive investigation,” Boston police said they found Ambrose in 38-year-old Victor Pena’s Charlestown apartment at 49 Walford Way.
