  • Bizarre stories?

    I know I might be asking for it, but here it goes. I am doing a little research and I wanted to solicit any really bizarre stories you guys/gals have experienced on the street. I am talking about things you just couldn't explain and defied explanation. Anything and everything.

    Thanks in advance!

      Like why the guy decapitated his aunt, and place the head in the basement utility sink???

        Defied explanation like "and then he teleported" or defied explanation like "WTF was he thinking?" If its the 2nd, that's the majority of police work.

          While working as a detective, I was handling a fatal hit and run case. The suspect passed another car that was stopped at a marked crosswalk, struck and killed a pedestrian as he walked past it and then fled the scene. The two occupants of the other vehicle provided a pretty good description of the suspect and his car. I wanted to see if I could eek out a little more information from the suspect or his car using a new technique I'd learned in an advanced interview/interrogation class the week before.

          The technique is called a "cognitive interview" and without going into all the details, it involves getting the witness to relax and to describe the event from different "views" using a free form narrative. This isn't hypnosis, but can be very effective retrieving info. Anyway, one of the two witnesses provided some great info including a partial license plate number similar to: 4XJ_2_9. It wasn't enough to get an ID on a "possible" that night, but I thought that it could help in the future.

          About 12 hours later (the following afternoon), the suspect surrendered himself to me at the police station, accompanied by his attorney. He believed the witnesses had provided enough info to ID him and (after sobering up) thought turning himself in was in his best interest. The guy told us where he'd abandoned his car and we recovered it there, in exactly the condition we'd expected it to be in- with fresh damage, the victim's blood and bits of clothing, flesh, etc...on it's grill and hood. The suspect and his car matched everything we'd had as described, except for the license plate number. It wasn't even close and never had been.

          As part of my follow-up, I checked the guy for outstanding warrants prior to booking and found he'd had one for a prior, minor traffic offense. He'd been driving another car (months earlier) and that vehicle's plate was: 4XJA229. A near perfect match to the info my wit had provided!

          The suspect insisted he hadn't switched plates or had any reason to and I believed him based upon the truthful info he'd provided earlier. The only possible explanation I have for the incident is this: My two witnesses were returning home from an AA meeting. The suspect was a "sports bookie" who's regulars met him in bars. I believe my witness may have seen the suspect before outside one of those locations (before he quit drinking) and noticed the license plate. Somewhere in his subconscious memory, he matched the plate with the familiar face and recalled it. Weird.

            How about the guy that committed suicide by cutting his own head off with a miter saw. He video'd it so we wouldn't think it was an accident or homocide.

              There have been a few promotions over the years that were bizarre and without any logical explanation.

                How bout a guy who was stopped on a traffic stop and had some custom rig hooked up to his johnson that sucked him off. It was a tube he would put on his dingdong that had vacuum lines hooked up to the intake manifold, the more you hit the throttle, the more suction etc. Hahahahahahahaha....this wasn't mine btw, but it was from yrs back from one of our guys.

                    Or just a really strange coincidence? Who knows?

                    Tonight, I arrested a DWI with a fairly common name. Something like "Steven William Jones." I also wrote him a couple of small parting gifts. After I finished typing and writing that name 20 or so times, I hit the street again. Less than 20 minutes later, I sat through a red light and then proceeded through the intersection when it turned green. I was nearly creamed by a minivan entering the intersection from the right. I pulled the guy over (hey, maybe I got another one, right?) and asked for his license. I was a bit shocked to see "Steven William Jones" on the license, let me tell you. He was sober; I let him go because he seemed more scared by the near miss than me. Also, I would have thoroughly confused the poor clerks at the municipal court had I written him!
                    If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

                      The worst here was inside: the guy who was the focus of not one but TWO internals, the results of both were "this one should never, ever be placed in a supervisory position."

                      He was promoted about three years later to first-line supervisor.

                      And - the bizarre part - he is still around. Right up there with UFOs, Sasquatch, and getting off work & home on time: completely bizarre & unlikely in comparison with reality as we know it.

                          Not safe for work or family.. This may be to graphic for your research paper. From a friend of mine in another agency.

                          Suspicious person call. Two dudes in a car doesn't belong at that house type of deal. As cops roll up dudes are still in the car. Pornography in plain view. Dudes hemhaw about what they're up to, but one does live there. Then they finally spill it-

                          They answered adds on craigslist for JOB (J*** off buddy). Combine adult reading material and two bored unemployed weirdos, use your imagination. When wife asked what they were doing, "Just looking for a job honey." They finally divulge it to the cop. Apparently they were begging the cops to not tell their wives.

                          That one made tons of circles in cop gossip.

                          Edited: I tried my best to give a PG-13 explanation. Way better story in locker-room format though.

                            Homocide? How about homicide.

                              When I was a deputy in Tennessee, I responded to a crash in which a guy had hit a dear with a Volkswagen. He put the the downed deer in the backseat to take it home. As I got arrived, I found a live and ****ed off deer in the backseat. Apparently the deer had only been knocked out. He did alot of damage before we coaxed him out where he ran off.
