    Default Just when ya think ya know your neighbors......

    I got a knock at the door a few hours ago with an officer standing there. I, having been a surprisingly good citizen as of late (no excessive speeding, etc) wasn't sure what was going on. I was being asked questions about a mattress.

    This morning, as the garbage collector was about to empty the dumpster and apparently found a hand hanging outside of the mattress.

    This mattress sat in front of an apartment 2 doors down from mine and had been sitting there for probably a good week before it was moved to the dumpster by maintenance.

    What's odd is that the mattress was moved once from where it was 2 doors down, to one dumpster where someone stood it up on it's end, then it was hauled across the parking lot to the other dumpster where the hand was seen. It's been raining and apparently the extra weight was dismissed as waterweight........that sounds off to me.....

    They haven't opened the mattress up to identify it as being a man or a woman yet. I went down to get as close as I could and all I can see ie 3 or 4 knuckles, in a somewhat fist type of formation......

    Oh, and about the water weight.... I understand a mattress being weighed down from the padding getting soaked, but what I don't understand is how one maintenance guy could move that type of mattress, with the added weight of a body inside.......

    LOL...............good lord.......

    I just went outside and all the police tape was taken down, but the mattress was still out there. I asked one of the detectives what was going on and they said that it was a bears hand.......?!?!?!?!?

    Mattresses are pretty much designed to be dragged, especially if you dont' care what happens to it. I recently helped a friend move cross-country (PA to TX) and our tarp didn't work too well on teh mattress on the roof. Thing got torrential downpoured on for two straight days, but was still relatively easy to drag to the dumpster by myself once we got to her new apt.

    I felt really sketchy typing that for some reason. Probably due to the topic of this thread... BTW, Brett, if I were you I'd be MAJORLY freaked out that that happened anywhere near my building.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    Well, that's certainly less disturbing than a human hand, but still pretty freakin wierd....

    What cracks me up actually is that the cops were all out interviewing everyone about the 'crime' before they'd even completely identified that they physically had a 'victim'. CSI was out here taking all their measurements, pictures, etc of the potential 'scene' and all that for a bears paw? Unbelievable

    I bearly believe this grizzly story of yours. Sounds like someone is trying to make a quick buck or get a handout for reporting a murder or mattress-knapping to Crimestoppers.

    And you guys are wondering where Tour2ma is.

    I'll tell you where he is, he's in Arizona removing appendages from the local wildlife.

    Brett, if the hand is still there, fold all the digits down, except the middle one, and take a picture of yourself by it. That's what I would do anyway.

    Cheers,

    just don't make any wishes with it. They may turn out ironically bad.
