The plan to move the corpse goes to the dogs [News of the Weird] | Things to do
On July 3, in Andover Township, New Jersey, police received a call about a body found under a bridge in the city.
“The detective and officers began checking the area under the bridge when they did confirm that a dead (human) body was contained in the doghouse,” police said, according to Law & Crime.
Two days later Brian Cheda-Hackembruch, 25, and Matthew R. Thomas, 27, were arrested for disturbing or desecrating human remains, but not for murder. It appears the deceased was a resident of Hopatcong, NJ, who died from a “medical emergency”.
Cheda-Hackembruch and Thomas placed the body in the trunk of a car belonging to the victim, then called a towing company to move the car to Andover. Then the two allegedly moved the body to the doghouse belonging to an unsuspecting family. Police have not clarified the victim’s relationship with the suspects or the reason for their elaborate plan.
Chris Langston, 48, a metal detector in Oswestry, England, came across a frightening find while exploring the woods near his home on June 30. Langston first saw a pile of broken dishes, but digging deeper unearthed a clear bottle that appeared to contain urine, hair, and a human tooth. According to Metro News, archaeologists say such bottles were used to prevent spells and curses from entering homes as early as the 1600s.
“I had my camera in my hand and in the video you can see me shaking as I just wanted to put it down,” Langston said. “I did some research online and found out that it was a witch bottle. I went back the next day and put it in a quiet place near the area where I was. Found it and I buried it lightly just to avoid any bad juju. I got a little scared of it all. “
Not clear on the concept
The Bloomington, Minn., Police Department is having the books thrown away after calling people who take volumes from Little Free Libraries “thieves.”
In early July, the department posted on Twitter: “After a few thefts from small libraries in our town, officers and staff came together to donate a bunch of books to the libraries. Now people can use them and enjoy it again. “
But Fox News reported that people weren’t buying it, “How can you steal something for free, officers?” one respondent wrote.
The BPD also tweeted that someone had taken the books and sold them for a profit, which also prompted contempt. Finally, the department admitted that the use of the word “theft” was “human error” and apologized.
Last religious message?
In Los Angeles on July 7, an unidentified man climbed to the top of the steeple of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and set a cross on fire, then escaped police as he jumped from rooftop to rooftop and rappelled from buildings, Fox News reported. The man, who was shirtless and missing a sock, also used cables over the area to climb buildings. Eventually, the police caught up with him and he was transferred to a local hospital.
About 400 couples gathered on the first weekend of July in Lincolnshire, England for activities and entertainment including an adult bouncy castle, cigar lounge, clay pigeon shooting and theater in outdoors – oh, and a Mr. and Mrs. Swingathon contest, wet T-shirt contest and fetish demonstrations. The festival was promoted to swingers through FabSwingers, an app that brings together interested parties, Metro News reported. Guests enjoyed luxury four-person whirlpool yurts, billed to the local council as a “private camping club.”
The neighbors were mostly unfazed: “I would be the first to call the police if it bothered me, but if it floats their boat then let them continue,” one said.
