News of the Weird
Bizarre but true stories about real people collected by syndicated columnist Chuck Shepherd.
In Salt Lake City, county sheriff Aaron Kennard, who was caught by a Salt Lake Tribune reporter playing numerous rounds of golf during working hours in August and September, merely shrugged. “I’m not golfing enough,” he said, in that golf helps him relax. He said he’d rather just golf a little than take summer vacations.
An unnamed, “well-known Adelaide (Australia) model” was seen screaming, “Where’s my baby? Someone’s stolen my baby” shortly after she paused while jogging and pushing the 5-month-old’s buggy along the city’s River Torrens in December. According to a report in Melbourne’s The Age newspaper, the woman had stopped to answer a cell-phone call, and when she finally turned back around, the buggy was gone. Unfortunately, it had rolled into the river during the phone call, and the incident ended badly.
