A sleepy little crime scene

A pair of crooks in Florida made off with the haul of their dreams! Sebas­t­ian Gaar­landt and Kris­tine asleep at the wheelGankos broke into sev­eral cars in the park­ing lot of a condo com­plex in Cas­sel­berry, steal­ing elec­tron­ics, includ­ing sev­eral GPS devices, as well as other per­sonal effects. The excite­ment of the heist appar­ently took a lot out of them, since they then climbed into their get­away car – where they both fell asleep. One of the car own­ers called cops to report a break-in, and when an offi­cer was dis­patched to the scene, he found the pair snooz­ing away, sur­rounded by the stolen items.


A dead body on a gur­ney fell out of a coroner’s van when a door mal­func­tioned, send­ing the corpse into the mid­dle of a busy road­way in Penn­syl­va­nia! The Bucks County Courier Times reports the acci­dent hap­pened near a shop­ping cen­ter in Feast­er­ville, Penn­syl­va­nia. A photo on the newspaper’s web­site shows the corpse, wrapped in a white sheet, lying in the street as cars buzz by. The Bucks County Coroner’s Office says the dri­ver real­ized imme­di­ately that the door had opened and retrieved the body within min­utes. The office says it “deeply regrets” the inci­dent. A passer-by  helped get the body into the van.
Police entered a 15th Avenue res­i­dence in Brook­lyn when they received a call about a foul smell. It was ter­ri­fy­ing enough when police found skele­tal remains in a woman’s New York City apart­ment and learned that they belonged to the tenant’s mother but a twist straight out of a Alfred Hitch­cock movie, the daugh­ter Chava Stirn had been sleep­ing next to her mother’s corpse for three years! Stirn would report­edly set up Rosenthal’s bones on a bed of trash bags in the kitchen, and would pull a chair near the remains to sleep at night. Stirn was taken to a hos­pi­tal for eval­u­a­tion. It’s yet unclear what caused Rosenthal’s death.
