Police in France said they were try­ing to iden­tify the skele­ton of a man believed to have lain undis­cov­ered in bed for more than 15 years! The body, found in an aban­doned house in the north­ern city of Lille, is thought to be that of the elderly owner of the prop­erty, who lived alone and appeared to have house dat­ing no rel­a­tives or friends appar­ently. Police said they had found piles of unopened mail at the back to 1996.

A 9-year-old girl who was hang­ing out­side a Hal­loween party Sat­ur­day night in West­ern Penn­syl­va­nia, took a bul­let to the shoul­der from a male rel­a­tive who mis­took her for a skunk! She was spot­ted on a hill­side around 8:30 p.m. wear­ing a black cos­tume and black hat with a white tas­sel.  No word on if the rel­a­tive was wasted or just scared to death of the size of that skunk but  she went down.

Most peo­ple dread going to jury duty and try to find a way to make it more tol­er­a­ble. Well, school­teacher Damien Este­ban took things a lit­tle too far in his attempt to take the edge off, as he was found try­ing to bring 18 bag­gies of heroin into a New York City cour­t­house! Este­ban, a 33-year-old teacher at a pres­ti­gious archi­tec­ture school, returned from a break in a mur­der trial with the stash and was caught as he attempted to go through secu­rity. He was arrested and charged with crim­i­nal pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance. And, he has since been replaced as a juror.
