Too Sexy For His Car

St. Petersburg, FL – A jury has found a man guilty of first-degree murder in the 2002 killing and decapitation of his ex-girlfriend’s lover. A judge sentenced Dennis George Roache to life without parole.

Authorities say 40-year-old Roache broke into the home of a former girlfriend in 2002 and began fighting with her new boyfriend, 18-year-old Gregory Shannon. Shannon was stabbed and decapitated with a machete.

Police say Roache placed the victim’s head on a car hood outside, adjusted the rearview mirror so it appeared the head could see its reflection, then peacefully surrendered to officers.

His attorneys presented an insanity defense based on Roache’s history. He has been committed to a state mental facility twice. Sun-Sentinel

That suggests he was released twice, which in turn suggests — to me, anyway — there’s something not exactly right with the system. But a  spokesman for the Florida Department of Bad Puns defended his release, noting that the poor bastard was “simply trying to get ahead, like you and me and everybody else.”

Well, maybe not precisely like everybody else.

Happy Halloween, everybody!

    I call Bullshit. The Florida Department of Bad Puns was eliminated during the Bush administration, folded into the larger Justice Division, where it’s now called the Department of Crime and Pun-ishment. So, Bullshit! BULLSHIT!!

    Where do you find these horrible people doing these ghastly deeds? Not Roache. I mean the government clods making puns for a living.

    And the girlfriend was quoted as saying “no more head for you Gregory!”
