Around Halloween, it is common for dummies to be mistaken as lifeless bodies and 9-1-1 sees an upswing in distress calls. Unfortunately in Chillicothe, Ohio, a woman who was found hanging from a chain-link fence was anything but fake.
According to police, 31-year-old Rebecca Cade (pictured here) was badly beaten then hung from the fence by her sleeves. Police believe that blunt force trauma to both the head and neck is what caused Cade's death. They also believe that they have discovered the murder weapon close to where her body was discovered: a bloody rock, about the size of a grapefruit.
In news that shocked literally no one: McDonald's all-day breakfast has been a nightmare.
According to franchise owners, the all-day breakfast menu has slowed down order times, and significantly reduced profits: since breakfast items tend to cheapen the overall cost of orders. More items available to consume means more labor for franchises, which means less profit.
"In small stores, the problems are vast with people falling over each other and equipment jammed in everywhere," one franchise owner wrote in response to the survey that was sent out to owners.
This Tuesday, 35-year-old Nikki Abrell went ballistic and tore up an Anchorage Subway after taking synthetic cannabis while naked. "Spice," as the drug is often referred to, is 30 to 50 times more potent than weed, making Abrell's actions of ripping off her clothes and destroying the Subway somewhat understandable.
She is charged with third-degree criminal mischief, harassment and resisting arrest, and the damages she inflicted on the sandwich chain are upwards of $20,000.
We have never heard of Spice until now...and color us fascinated.
This week a 2-year-old was riding in the back of a car when he fired off a gun, striking his grandmother who was sitting in the passenger seat of the car. In a recent Washington Post article, author Christopher Ingraham found that this past year there have been 43 instances of a toddler firing off a hand-gun.
To break down his findings:
Roughly once per week a child had fired off a handgun killing themselves or another.
Boys are much more likely to do this than girls, no clear reason why.
Shootings have occurred in 24 of our 50 states.
If these statistics aren't enough to make you rethink gun laws in this country, then I have no words for you.
No, you didn't read that wrong, a man whose name is legally Santa Claus ran for a City Council seat and won! He comes with his credentials stacked, seeing as he was the former president of the North Pole Chamber of Commerce. No word yet on how Claus plans to take on his new role, but something makes us think he'll be sitting on the Council with his tongue in his cheek.
A 300-pound, 6-foot-2-inch Medford man has been charged with beating his girlfriend for not bringing him home In-N-Out Burger. The 21-year-old man in question, Christian Matthew Berry, became enraged that his 20-year-old girlfriend refused to bring him home food from his favorite chain and decided the best course of action was to punch her in the face and hit her with his cane. The victim, who was taken to Rogue Regional Medical Center for bruises, scratches and a lump on her face, said Berry also kicked her.
"He didn't remember kicking her but told me that if she said it happened, then it probably did. He also admitted to assaulting her about 13 times in the last year. The argument tonight was because she didn't bring home In-N-Out burgers for dinner."
Berry will be charged with second-degree assault and will hopefully take this time to learn not to be such a crappy, disgusting boyfriend.
Katherine Gaydos told local news that she glued her eyes shut after accidentally mixing up super glue with eye drops. A doctor used lidocaine in order to unstick one of her eyes, but the other will require a procedure to scrap the rest of the glue off of her cornea.
These were not the ratings producers were hoping for! On an informational children's program adorably dubbed Play School, host Alex Papps decided to poke a hole in a water bottle, insert a straw in there, and cover up any remaining openings. The children watching probably had no idea what was going on, but adult audiences sure did: it looked exactly like a homemade bong.
The Court of Cassation ruled against major car manufacturer Fiat after they fired an employee for viewing adult films during his lunch break. The employee didn't think there was anything wrong with this, because it wasn't like he was really able to get into the film, ya know?
The decision comes from the court after they ruled that porn would not hinder an employee's ability to work during the rest of his shift. However, they ruled in favor of firing an employee who smokes weed during his/ her lunch break because this can negatively affect your work performance afterwards.
