WEIRD, BIZARRE and UNUSUAL (.1053)



CANCEL THOSE BURIAL PLANS
Though heartbroken, after Juneau, Alaska, police told Karen and Jay Priest their 29-year-old son, Justin Priest, had been killed, they still went to tell his longtime live-together girlfriend. But their biggest shock came while knocking on her door ... only to have their “dead” son open it. (The AP, 10-11-14)  
FUNERALS ARE A LOT CHEAPER
Federal health officials have approved a daily pill to cure the most common form of hepatitis C. Problem is, each of these pills costs $1,125, meaning a year’s supply could set you back $410,625. (The AP, 10-11-14)
BATHED HIMSELF IN HOLY WATER?
After Catholic priest Gerald Robinson died in July 2014, his body was buried with full priestly rights. This came as a surprise to many around the Diocese of Toledo, Ohio, considering the fact in 2006 he’d been convicted of murdering Sister Margaret Ann Pahl. (WNWO-TV/Toledo, 7-11-14)
