"Pawn Stars" patriarch, Richard Benjamin Harrison, who was known as "The Old Man," has died at age 77.

Gold & Silver Pawn's Facebook page posted Monday that Harrison was surrounded by "loving family" this past weekend and died peacefully.

The post said that fans would remember Harrison as a "sometimes grumpy (always loving, however), often wisecracking, and voice of absolute reason" on the History Channel reality show.

The Navy veteran opened the Gold & Silver Pawn store in Las Vegas with his son, Rick. "Pawn Stars" premiered in 2009 and features the Harrisons interacting with customers who are trying to sell or pawn objects that often are unusual or have historic value.

“Youngblood” by 5 Seconds of Summer, sold 142,000 total copies in the week following its June 15 release, Rolling Stone reported. Of that number, 117,000 were in traditional album sales, Billboard reported.

It is the group’s third album and the third to top the U.S. charts, following its self-titled debut album in 2014 and “Sounds Good Feels Good” the following year.

“You are every reason why we feel like the luckiest people alive," the band wrote on Instagram on Monday.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on traditional album sales, track equivalent albums and streaming equivalent albums. The entire chart will be posted by Billboard on Tuesday.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z were at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with “Everything is Love,” which the pair released as the Carters, Rolling Stone reported. The album sold 123,000 total copies.

Supreme Court won't hear case of 'Making a Murderer's' Brendan Dassey 

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to take the case of Brendan Dassey, whose confession to rape and murder charges as a teenager was featured in the Netflix documentary, “Making a Murderer,” The Washington Post reported.

Dassey, now in his late 20s, is serving a life sentence after he was convicted in 2007, along with his uncle, Steven Avery, for the 2005 rape and murder of photographer Teresa Halbach in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin. Halbach’s burned body was found on Avery’s property, the Post reported. Dassey was 16 at the time of the murder, Variety  reported.

Dassey’s attorneys claimed his confession to police was coerced, Variety reported. He was interrogated four times over a 48-hour period, the Post reported.

The Supreme Court gave no reason for denying the petition made by Dassey’s attorney’s in the case of Dassey v. Dittmann

The Wisconsin Court of Appeals upheld Dassey’s conviction, ruling that the interrogations were not coercive. Dassey was read his rights and his mother consented to the interview. He did not have an attorney present when he was interviewed, the Post reported.

Dassey appealed the Wisconsin decision to federal court, and a panel for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit in Chicago upheld the decision on a 2-1 vote. However, the full appeals court overturned the panel’s ruling by a 4-3 vote in December, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported, noting that Dassey’s confession was voluntary.

Under federal law, the Supreme Court usually defers to decisions made by lower courts and intervenes only if the decision by the state court was unreasonable, the Post reported.

Lincoln Foundation's Marilyn Monroe dress sells for $50,000

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation's unusual ownership of a black dress once belonging to movie star Marilyn Monroe is ending as it sold over the weekend for $50,000.

The dress was among several items that the Springfield, Illinois, foundation put up for auction in Las Vegas. Darren Julien of Julien's Auctions tells The Chicago Tribune that the dress sold for near its estimated price. Seven photographs of Monroe sold for between $1,000 and $3,000 each. Bids for a bust of poet Carl Sandburg didn't reach the foundation's minimum.

The money will help repay $10 million the foundation owes on a 2007 loan for buying a collection that included the Monroe items along with others purportedly belonging to Lincoln, including a stovepipe hat, bloodstained gloves and an 1824 book.

The Ventura County Sheriff's Office told Fox News a deputy responded to a 911 call after 11 p.m. and that Locklear was “heavily intoxicated” and “arguing with other subjects at the residence.”

“The responding deputy believed it was necessary to separate her from the others,” a department spokesperson told Fox News. “In the process of trying to separate her, she battered the deputy. There was no injury to the deputy. That action caused her to get arrested.”
