It’s crazy out there.
(Reuters) – A man who claimed he was shot by a passing motorist in Montana while on a cross-country hitchhiking tour for a book about kindness in America has confessed to shooting himself in a desperate bid for attention, authorities said on Friday.
“Ray Dolin, 39, admitted to the hoax when pressed by Valley County deputies, who had begun to believe that a man they had arrested on suspicion of committing the supposed drive-by shooting was innocent, Sheriff Glen Meier said.”
A lawyer accused of planting drugs in the car of a volunteer at her son’s school had previously written a book about committing the ‘perfect crime’, it has emerged.
Jill Easter, who is accused along with her husband of conspiring against PTA president Kelli Peters, wrote the novel Holding House under the pen name of Ava Bjork, and it was published last year.
Easter, an attorney-turned-novelist, created a promotional video for her book which was uploaded to YouTube. It asks readers: ‘If you knew how to commit the perfect crime, would you do it?’
“It is alleged that Easter and her husband, Kent, conspired to frame Kelli Peters by putting Vicodin, Percocet, marijuana and a used marijuana pipe behind the front seat of her car. The couple, both lawyers, were charged Tuesday with conspiracy to procure false arrest, false imprisonment and conspiracy to falsely report a crime.”
There’s always a parent who wants to rule the schoolyard. You know it. I swear that the one real psychopath I’ve met was a grade school room mother.
And finally: at her latest book launch, Katie Price reveals her next ambition.
And yes, the photo really does show Katie, aka “glamour model” Jordan, “straddling Dante, the stallion.”
What can I say? I can’t wait to see Jordan, in all her blonde, augmented glory, riding her black stallion into a meeting of the Crime Writers’ Association.
However, I’ll note that In the Name of Love is the eighth novel with Katie’s name on the cover — not the eighth book she has written. Neigh.
