In another shocking development, an advisor at a venture capital (VC) firm that focuses on blockchain companies has been arrested.

Making Colombia His Hunting Ground

In the report that was published by local media outlet Semana, Depp has been using Colombia as a hunting ground for his sexual activities with minors.
