Murder in Detroit
With nothing better to do, I was reading the Detroit murder statistics, and so far, it would appear they're down a smidgen at 140 to date. Since we're half way through the year, I think the city may come in under 300 by year end as compared to 379 for last year.
However, in calculating their stats, the FBI missed one.
A particularly gruesome crime, in addition to the beheading, it would appear the victim, a hapless tape measure, was gutted. A witness, who happened upon the crime scene, told police that the suspect appeared to be cheerful, gloating and was pleased to show off his crime.
A BOLO (be on the lookout) has been issued for the suspect. He is tall with spindly legs and is said to have a rather large nose. He was last seen wearing a black coat with a rusty brown colored bow tie. Do not approach this dangerous criminal as he is considered armed with sharp claws and massive teeth. If you've seen this suspect, please notify the police.
