Sometimes…an interest piqued

I’m not a guy who links to a lot of things. If you want to read it, you’ll go find it. However, there is an interesting story out of Big Sur that compels me to be a linker.

There is something about two women found dead in a posh beach resort that immediately makes my eyebrows go up.

While some residents — relying on news reports and conversations with each other — believe the deaths are the result of suicide or murder-suicide, Kathleen Millsap, a store manager at the nearby Lucia Lodge, said, “I’m thinking we might have a weird person around here.”

The fact that they were both found duct-taped and their heads covered in plastic bags makes it even more odd. The fact that one of their heads was covered with a smiling halloween mask pretty much seals the deal.

I figure it is something about my childhood that fuels my morbid death compulsion (is that redundant?). The first movie I ever remember seeing was a drive-in showing of “Friday the 13th.” After that, I remember “Prom Night” and “The Thing.”

Sometimes, I think I’m a sicko at heart.
