Imagine waking up to see yellow police tape surrounding the house directly across the street from where you live? Well, that's exactly what happened to Slick a few days ago. (See photo above.) Slick's neighbor, an older guy maybe in his 80s, was known to take in homeless people on occasion. Perhaps one of them wasn't overly appreciative? The old guy died of knife wounds. After police questioned Slick, he took around 20 photos of the crime scene including the corpse being carried out in a body bag.
Lesson 1: Don't take in strangers or even people you know who carry knives.
Lesson 2: If you think that police tape is likely to block your drive, park around the block.
P.S. Strange that, as of this printing, the murder has yet to appear in the news.
