Bizarre but true stories about real people collected by syndicated columnist Chuck Shepherd.
Police in Morrisville, Vt., who arrested a teenager in April for allegedly removing a corpse’s head in a cemetery tomb, said the suspect had spoken of using the head as a marijuana bong.
A young woman who in December sued an Austin, Texas, distributor of steamy “spring break” videos, admitted that she had consented to be in a video topless, but now said she was only 17 at the time (and therefore a minor) and now fears the video’s circulation will hamper her in “college,” “career” and “church.”
In April, at least 52 Hindu pilgrims drowned in India’s holy Narmada River when a power-generation dam upstream released water.
In March, Jonathan P. Mitchell, dressed in black and wet from crawling in the nighttime mud up to a store in the KOA campground near Watsonville, Calif., was found by police, stuck and dangling from the rafters after trying to climb in through the roof. However, the manager admitted that he had not locked the door that night and that Mitchell could have just walked in.
