TRUE CRIME TUESDAY for September 24, 2013


Of all the superheroes, Spiderman has had the most brushes with the law, no thanks to a campaign waged against him by newspaper editor J. Jonah Jameson. But our favorite web slinger may have finally been ensnared in a web of his own making.

The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports that a suspect wearing a spiderman outfit entered a store in the college section of town known locally as Oakland and asked for money. The clerk pulled out a taser and Spidey hauled out of there.

He must have been out of web juice. 

Bond was set at 50,000 dollars, according to a follow up by the Post.

No word yet from Mary Jane or Aunt May.


Two teens in Spokane, Washington, 13 and 14 years of age, were arrested after they attacked one of the boys' mother. The suspects were apparently high on pills when they concocted a plan to kill the woman and then eat her liver.

This is wrong on so many levels. To kill the woman who gave you life? And over something you can get at your local grocery store?

Here's hoping the criminals get bread and water in prison. As for me, I don't think you could convince me to try this no matter how many pills you shoved down my throat.

And I certainly wouldn't kill someone for it. Yuck!


And some good news. An infant kidnapped 13 years ago in Missouri was located and reunited with her family.  A suspect is in custody.

According to a detective in Livingston County, "It was a good reunion," Merconi said. "You could tell within the first three minutes they hit it off pretty well. Since then, I've been on the phone with the dad and from what I'm understanding, it's going pretty well."

The best news I've heard this morning.
