Man Allegedly Steals Dead Girlfriend's Body for Selfies and Other Selfie Madness
Well now, if you think one or two of my other posts are strange, wait until you catch this one. A California man has allegedly stolen his dead girlfriend's body and took a selfie for his friends on social media. Here's the original post on documentingreality.com .
I've been unable to find anything on Google News, myself. But this could be simply due to the unidentified man not being identified/arrested yet. (Surely, the theft of a cadaver – selfie or not – would catch a charge, right?) So, just like the original poster, we're going to have to take a “wait-and-see” approach.
Whether it's real or not, I hope it never gets removed.
But, in the course of the search for some corroborating news, I ended up finding a pile of other zany/sad/disturbing/funny stories. The world is becoming one truly messed up place, some days.
According to the news, the pair were out “partying” with a friend who overdosed and, fearing the discovery of drugs in their car, after having taken a few shots, then abandoned the body in another person's driveway.
What great friends, huh? And, since when did “partying” involve being alone in a car?
The article includes a couple other stories which might be disturbing to some. I wanted more, though. Those Google results were proving to be interesting, to say the least.
Out of Russia (See? It's not just Americans who are idiots) there's the sad tale of 17-year-old Xenia Ignatyeva. The young lady climbed to the top of a railway bridge at night for a dramatic selfie and, having succeeded, fell. According to a witness and the police, she had grabbed electrical wires in an attempt to break her fall .
I feel bad for her family and friends. What a tragedy.
You just can't beat the Old Country for the crazy, can you?
Okay. Enough of the nuts. On to the just, plain, dumb.
I don't have her name and she's nobody I know. But, just imagine you're the girl who sent a nude selfie to her dad? This one alone could be a fantastic topic all on its own. And now, for the story from the Mirror .
