Fox 2's M.L. Elrick joins co-host Marc Fellhauer in discussing conspiracy theories and rumors about the much-discussed, yet never confirmed party Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick supposedly had at the Manoogian Mansion.

Back in the day, when Kilpatrick ruled, rumors circulated that there was a raucous party around 2002 attended by a stripper nicknamed "Strawberry." The story goes that Killpatrick's wife attacked the dancer, who was later murdered. Kilpatrick denied there was a party or that he had anything to do with the 2003 death. 

Elrick was a Detroit Free Press reporter at the time and has spent many years reporting on Kilpatrick, now serving 28 years in federal prison.
