A Missing Man Mystery
A search for a missing man ended in tragedy, when police discovered his body. Foul play was not suspected, but the location of the man’s body is a totally mystery. Turns out, he was discovered after a strange smell was observed as coming from a life-sized paper maché dinosaur.
How he got in the dinosaur is not clear. The Dino itself was just hanging out in front of an abandoned movie theatre. The working theory is that he dropped his phone inside it, and climbed in to get it out… only to somehow die inside.
What Weird and Wacky Wednesdays is complete without a Florida man? This one was arrested after an unconventional assault. According to the police, Tyler Worden arrived at his 20-year-old daughter’s house to drop off pizza that he had ordered.
A dispute ensued, which culminated in Mr. Worden throwing a pizza slice at his daughter’s face. What really does not make sense to me is that even though the claim is that he only threw one slice, the woman was discovered with pizza sauce and toppings covering her face.
Mr. Worden was arrested but later released on bail.
Meanwhile, in the UK, people walking along Sussex Beach stumbled upon an interesting find. Several empty life jackets were tied to packages wrapped in plastic bags. When authorities came to investigate, testing revealed that the plastic bags contained cocaine.
Not just any cocaine either – this was almost 1000 kilograms of cocaine, worth over $80 million if sold on the street.
Police currently have no leads about why or how the cocaine ended up on the beach.
