5-foot boa constrictor found in rental car at California airport

boaAuthorities in California said a 5-foot boa constrictor was found in a rental car being returned to an airport — and it didn’t belong to the customers.

The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office said the customers, who had been using the car for about two weeks, returned the vehicle to the rental office at Oakland International Airport about 3 p.m. Wednesday when the big snake was discovered.

The customers had “no idea where the snake comes from, or how long it’s been there,” Sgt. Ray Kelly told SFGate.com.

The rental facility contacted the sheriff’s office and a deputy with some snake experience was able to wrangle the serpent and identify it as a boa constrictor.

Kelly said the customers, who remained on the scene as the deputy captured the snake, were “pretty cool” about the situation.

“I would imagine the majority of people would freak out about it,” Kelly said. “I credit these folks for being so calm about it.”

The snake was taken to animal services and the sheriff’s office is trying to find its owner.

“If you left your snake in a rental car at the Oakland Airport please give us a call,” the sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post. “Your snake is safe but likely misses you.”  Source

cystAn Alabama woman who suffered months of unexplained medical problems finally has relief after doctors removed a 50-pound ovarian cyst.

Kayla Rahn, 30, of Montgomery, said she suffered months of problems including pain and weight gain, and medical professionals told her she’d feel better if she lost weight.

“I had been trying to lose weight for about a year, but I was gaining weight,” Rahn told WSFA-TV.

Rahn said her issues got so out of control that people often asked if she was pregnant.

“I legit looked like I was a solid 9 months pregnant. We went to dinner and someone asked me if I was having twins. It was frustrating and rough,” she said.

At one point in May, her mother took her to the Jackson Hospital emergency room in Montgomery, where a series of tests discovered the massive cyst on her ovary.  More

womanA 23-year-old woman was arrested on Friday for allegedly poisoning food served at a feast hosted by a relative that resulted in the deaths of five guests. Her intent, police said, was to kill her husband and in-laws, who she claimed victimised her over her complexion and cooking.

Police said 23-year-old Pradnya Survase of Khalapur, about 70 km from Mumbai, confessed to mixing a powder used to kill snakes in the dal that was served to some of the guests at a feast hosted by her relative Subhas Mane in Mahad on Monday.

“Pradnya claims that since her marriage two years ago, she has been insulted regularly for her dark complexion and accused of not being able to cook well,” said Vishwajeet Kaingade, senior inspector of Khalapur police station.

“She has named her mother in-law, Sindhu Survase, husband Suresh Govind Survase, sisters in-law Ujwala Pawar and Jyoti Ashok Kadam, and her mother in-law’s sister Sarita Mane and Sarita’s husband, Subhash Mane for the alleged torture,” the officer said.

Vilash Thikrey, 13, who survived the poisoning, said on Monday he remembered the dal tasting “bitter”.

Survase , who is divorced from her first husband, believes her first marriage broke down because another relative, Ulka Shinde, had “cast aspersions on her character”, said police. She alleged Shinde was damaging her second marriage also.  More

cameraPolice in Wisconsin say a man’s plan to take videos up the skirts of women was thwarted when his shoe camera exploded.

Madison Police Chief Mike Koval said in his daily blog that the 32-year-old man wanted to turn himself in to police on Tuesday. But the man wasn’t arrested because he hadn’t taken any videos before the camera’s battery fizzled.

Koval wrote that the man’s foot was injured when the battery exploded.

The chief added that the man was “counseled on his actions” and released because no video had been taken.

WKOW-TV reports that police say the investigation continues.

A police spokesman says authorities don’t know why the man wanted to turn himself in.  Source

windLayrd Mahler of Arizona was shocked to discover a snake appear on his windshield as he was driving in Phoenix.

Mahler explained to ABC 15 that he noticed the snake poke out his head from underneath the hood of his vehicle before it ended up in front of him on his windshield.

“Surprised, but at the same time I was driving, so there was no way I was going to panic because I didn’t want to get in an accident,” he said to Fox 10 of his reaction to seeing the snake.

Mahler quickly began filming the incident and tried using his windshield wipers to dispose of the snake, however, the unwanted guest then simply wrapped itself around the wipers before retreating back under the hood.

It was then that Mahler pulled over and attempted to locate the snake to no avail.

“Now I’m debating ‘do I get back in the car?” Mahler said. “I don’t know if it’s going to go through the vent system because they can do that. Or, do I just man up and drive home? So that’s what I did.”  Source

Ailing Texas inmate wants execution by firing squad or gas

Posted By Staff

Category: Nutty News

bibleA 66-year-old Texas death row inmate who confessed to four slayings and at least nine rapes is set for lethal injection amid his lawyers’ concerns that multiple health issues make it likely his execution will be botched and cause him unconstitutional pain.

Danny Paul Bible was condemned for killing a woman in Houston nearly 40 years ago.

Twenty-year-old Inez Deaton was stabbed with an ice pick, raped and left on the bank of a bayou.

Bible’s lawyers say his health problems will prevent Texas prison technicians from inserting an IV for the lethal drugs. They’re proposing a firing squad or nitrogen gas as means of execution, but Texas law only allows lethal injection.

Bible’s attorneys are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to halt Wednesday evening’s scheduled lethal injection.  Source

DNA testing revealed a WWII veteran stole an 8-year-old’s identity. No one knows why

Posted By Staff

dnaHe was a WWII veteran with a Purple Heart, a wife and three children. But in 1964, he vanished, moved across the country and later took the identity of an 8-year-old boy who had died years before.

His case had confounded investigators for more than a decade. US Marshal Pete Elliott called it “one of northeast Ohio’s biggest mysteries.”

Now, with the help of DNA testing, some of the pieces have come together.

In 2002, a 76-year-old man named Joseph Newton Chandler III locked the doors and windows in his apartment outside Cleveland. He turned off the air conditioning and marked the date on his calendar. Then he went into his bathroom and took his own life.

Police discovered his body about one week later, but it had decomposed in the summer heat. No fingerprints could be lifted from the man’s remains and his body was cremated.

When the name “Joseph Newton Chandler III” was run through a database, police saw the man had stolen the identity of an 8-year-old boy who died in a car accident with his parents in 1945. That’s when things got interesting.  More
