It's a fascinating story, but - alas!! - it's not true. The story was made up for the society meeting by Dr. Don Harper Mills. The story has been around since 1994. You can read all about it on Snopes: http://www.snopes.com/horrors/freakish/opus.aspCheers, all!TR Curranericstride@rogers.com
I know it's fake, thanks. Found out a half hour ago and posted my findings. Still a good story though!
Wow. I have nothing to say!! Its like watching CSI...But thats not what caught my attention...I was shocked by the WHOLE family situation....THAT BAD...?? the husband has the "HABIT" to threaten his wife with an unloaded SHOTGUN!!!! and his son loads it to actually KILL her...and then commits suicide ergo murders himself....Wow..That woman has some BAD LUCK going on, eh?
It is so bizarre, so very bizarre!
I have no words...
I know Kelly, I just had to post it when I saw it. The fact that it is true. Barb actually said to me "do you have a preamble for this?" and I said "no, no words".
When I first read it I didn't know it was fake!
Wow if I was watching that story on CSI or Law and Order I'd think it was completely unrealistic and a ridiculous episode. Truth really is stranger than fiction!
Samara, It won't be so bizarre if you watched Indian soap opera...This stuff happens in there ALL THE TIME!!!
I'd love to watch Indian soap opera then, sounds great! :)
LOL yeah....AT FIRST....!!! :P
WOW! Talk about Karma, that was a total amazing story! The most amazing stories tend to be true stories.
I just had a "did I read that right" moment. Interesting to say the least.
Okay stop the presses everyone! Annette just told me that the story is fake and I CHECKED IT OUT FIRST! Grrrrrrr. Every source I had gave it a passing grade. Sorry guys, did not mean to dupe you. Guess it still holds up as a creative story though but not nearly as interesting to me now!
Awwh Sweetie we know that....IT WAS ENTERTAINING THOUGH.....I'm sure everyone here had that ":-O" moment!! Its like the whole "Albus Severus Potter from the last HP movie was actually Harry potter in the first one...." Well, he wasn't! But it was quite exciting for a while!!! Here are a few really cute videos for ya.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRw-lfXy_tQhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVmGBoPx6Mshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65zrQ5BXkWQ
Oh well nice try Deb. I have had computer problems and have missed you guys. Phew! Glad I am back and can check in every morning. You've become "family"
wow that criminal law class I just finished this past semester is comming screaming back to me . LOL Well despite it being fake I am sure my crimal law professor would like to thank you just for making me remember all the stuff I learned and not helping but haveing to apply it as I was reading this : )
Wow. Just...wow! Crazy enough to be true, though.
It would have been amazing if it were true. Funny stuff.
That's okay Deb it was still a refreshing break from everyday, thanks for sharing!
Thanks everyone for your generosity. It is a great short story but...thought it was true. Snopes. Always snopes. Thanksxo
