    Most of us love to eat, and if we can help out a worthwhile charity at the same time it's icing on the cake, or ketchup on the burger, to use a phrase more befitting of this week's Military Matters.More >>
    The Four Winds Restaurant in Cusseta is known for the world-famous Ranger Burger, and it sold a bunch of them recently… enough to raise $1,500 for charity.

    The promotion, called Grubbin to Give, put 50 percent of the day's proceeds in the coffers of the Warrior Outreach Program.

EAST CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A relative of Angela Deskins went to the Fourth District Police department to report her as missing.

She was last seen around June 7th.  Police had her listed as homeless because she had no address.  

So how did she meet up with Michael Madison - the man accused of her murder?  That's one of many questions people have in the neighborhood where three bodies were found.  

Nathenia Crosby became friend's with Michael Madison through one of her daughters.  She says she knew him as Ivan and quickly decided he was too old for her daughter and her cousin.  

"I said you need to stay away from my daughter.  She's too young, and he did.  He complied with me.  He left her alone," said Nathenia Crosby.

Velvet spent some time alone with Madison who she also knew as Ivan. Recently, she says he was acting a little odd. 

"He was a little - I can't say agitated, but nervous.  Acting like he had a lot in his mind," said Velvet Farmer.

Now Crosby says she's glad she told Madison to back off of her daughter and cousin - thanking her lucky stars he complied. 

"I am really really happy that I did step in and tell him that he was too old because it could have been my daughter, or it could have been my little cousin that is one of these bodies that is found," added Nathenia.

Angela Deskins was not so fortunate.
