WEIRD, BIZARRE and UNUSUAL (.1048)



LOUSY MOTHER OF THE YEAR
After a pet ruined her 4-year-old daughter’s back pack, Ashley Tull, 30, of Selbyville, Del., gave the child another one, and took her to the Hickory Tree Child Care Center. Later, when the child found 249 small bags of white powder inside the bag and, thinking it was candy, gave it to other children. After being noticed by an adult, police were called and Tull was soon arrested for possession of heroin and endangering the welfare of a child. (The AP, 10-7-14)
OVER-CONSUMED THEIR PRODUCT
Police rushing to a home outside Dothan, Alabama, found three terrified women screaming out their upstairs window. One shouted she’d been stabbed and the blade broken-off inside of her. Trying to survive, they’d used their own shotgun to blow out all windows, even ripped out a toilet and sink to drop on an outside intruder. Once inside police found no outsiders had been involved. The three had caused some $10,000 in damages, all caused by methamphetamine induced paranoia. Their meth lab, though, was undisturbed. (Dothan Eagle, 8-25-14)
