Wierd case gets even wierder
The case I blogged a few days ago, about the guy who went into a bank with a bomb fastened around his neck, and ultimately got blown up...
Just got a LOT wierder. As one commenter said, if anybody had made a TV series on it, they'd have been laughed off as ludicrously implausble.
The full story now involves:
a doublecross (the guy was in on the plot, having been told it was a fake bomb, and was only told it was real at the last moment);
a "treasure hunt" for clues (after robbing the bank, he was supposed to follow a chain of clues until he got to the last one, that would tell him how to take the bomb off);
a plot to murder a woman's father, so she would inherit;
a hit man who was to be paid from the bank robbery;
a suicide note that gave clues as to who else was involved; and
a body in a freezer.
Damn.. I meant to post something about that because it has a Pennsylvania connection. Great story. You couldn't make that up, really.

Sounds kind of like that Bruce Willis movie "The Whole Nine Yards" (or various other similar movies).

Elmore Leonard might have written this one. Or maybe Carl Hiaasen. yeah, definitely Hiaasen.

Wells seems rather Aspie-like. Of course the cops didn't believe him.
God, I hate cops.
