[News] Even More Things to Worry About Today

It had to happen sooner or later so might as well have been in Heilbronn, Germany: Police there have a 15-year open case on a female serial killer whose DNA has been found at 40 crime scenes in southern Germany and Austria, but are just now learning that maybe the matching DNA came from the cotton buds used to swab the crime scenes, inadvertently contaminated at the factory by a single female packager. BBC News

I think we're about ready to call the "motorist stuck on railroad tracks" predominately a senior-citizen problem. This Newark, Del., woman's age is not given, but inference is easy on the brain, and it takes a special person to mistake "the tracks" for the street you're supposed to turn onto.

D'Oh! When a Hemphill, Pa., gas station customer complained about the price of cigarettes, it ticked off the clerk, who reached in his pocket and slapped down $60 to bet the guy he couldn't find a lower price anywhere . . whereupon the customer grabbed the cash and fled. Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

And a little good news to ease you into the weekend: No virgins for the suicide bomber in Helmand in southern Afghanistan, who was saying good-bye to his colleagues as he set out on his mission, and his vest accidentally exploded, killing him and six other jihadis. Reuters

Your Daily Jury Duty
["In America, a person is presumed innocent until the mug shot is released"]
R. Lavern Davison, 40, Kelseyville, Calif., charged with convincing a 13-yr-old girl in Centerville, Utah, to hop on a bus and come see him. (She assumed he was a World of Warcraft pal; he wanted you-know-what.) The crime's ugly, but we must be fair and observe Davison on the perp walk before we judge him. KUTV (Salt Lake City)

slapped down $60
The cashier was right. You can't find a lower price anywhere.

A store whose employees give you money to spend elsewhere. Hmmm.

Every time I see one of those pedo-scum I hope that he gets put in to the general population in prison.

Jury Duty - Guilty of being cheap! He should have paid for a plane ticket. Who in their right mind would get on a bus to go anywhere? The guy next to you might decide he wants to chop off your head or something worse.

Jihadis A tape of their last conversation has been found at the site. Here's a translation: Pay attention, I'm only going to demonstrate this once!

Jury Duty With all that fat the girl may have been safe anyhow! Guilty!

motorist Of course she's confused! She's supposed to be in Florida at this time of the year, not Philly!

Yea, I saw that time line mess too. It's got to be bad reporting.

it sounds like some departments in a general area were buying swabs not meant for dna collection from a bavarian company. the woman whose dna kept popping up worked there and yeah, she must have worked there for that long it's the only way this could have happened. at least that's what i understood from reading the story.
