News of the Weird

I propose a sticky for this a collection place for all the random things that get posted in this section.

I'll start:


CRALEY, Pa. -- Police said a 29-year-old York County woman is dead after her husband apparently shocked her with an electric cord to stimulate her during sex.

Officials said 37-year-old Toby Taylor was jailed Thursday in lieu of $100,000 bail on involuntary manslaughter and reckless endangerment charges.

Authorities said Kirsten Taylor was found unconscious Wednesday night at their Lower Windsor Township home. She was taken to York Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Police charging documents said Toby Taylor first said his wife was shocked by a hair dryer. But police said when burns were found, he told them he had clipped a cord to his wife and plugged it into an electric strip three or four times.

York County Coroner Barry Bloss called it a case of "bizarre sex" and said, "Even if you did it before, you have to know you could kill someone."

The Winner

ELLSWORTH, Maine (AP) -- His lottery ticket was a $1,000 winner, but police have seized it saying it was bought with proceeds from an illegal drug sale.

A judge will decide whether a man will keep a $1,000 lottery ticket police say was bought with drug money.

Michael David, who had been staying at an Ellsworth motel, sold four 10-milligram methadone pills for $15 each last week, Police Chief John Deleo said.

He then went to a convenience store and bought lottery tickets and other merchandise and went back to his motel room, where he was busted.

"I guess it will be up to a judge to decide, but it's in our possession right now as proceeds from a drug transaction," Deleo said of the winning ticket.

David, 46, remained in custody Monday in the Hancock County Jail on drug trafficking charges. An official at the jail said David was not available
