The tunnel runs at I ladys moustache and pets, love the show, let's rock the current small town. I live in typically. Never has anything exciting. Well, at least true crime lies happen. One day, I thought I'd ask my grandmother, who has lived in this town for over seventy five years. If anything, interesting and happened, and she said, Benzene, anything interests in this downloads. Every sorry, that's not it says. Instead of telling me about a murder or kidnapping, my ground decides to tell me about someone. She went fishing with my first thought. Why simple?
as a kid. My grandma lived in Chicago and when she is around five to eight years old, but it's a grandma memory ass, like some are below ten and above five, her family moved up north along the Illinois Wisconsin Border, where her family bought and ran hotel on a lake fun. She continued on and mentioned how one time she went out fishing with her father and brother. They were fishing for about an hour or so when a boat pulled up alongside theirs, and she heard a man ask her her father and brother. If they caught anything, she looks up and who does she see none other than Chicago mobster, fucking, Al Capone as sorry, I read that wrong I'll fucking Papa. She said he was all dressed up and had several men on the boat with him most likely bodyguards. She added that he was a very nice, I'm sure he kept asking questions about the days catch any finish the conversation by inviting my Graham and her family over for dinner at the hotel he was staying at. Why I mean how do you nicely say? No to Al Capone, my great grandfather made basic chit chat and in high tilled the fuck out of their they obviously didn't end up going to dinner without my brain is still boggled that this
My brain is still boggled by this tiny little TED bit of info, Graham just told the story so casually like it was nothing if that were me, I'd scream it from the rooftops. I'd be scream from the rooftops, whom I met say: sexy and uncle fishing was syphilis bearing mobster civil is bearing on the three wise guess: yeah. Oh my god. Oh that's! That's in! saying also tidbits history. It's a wonderful two bit, but it also makes me think I wonder if he was like a lonely for normal people. Anorak. It makes me think of you know how much we love Boardwalk Empire and that a whole slice of life that we saw, that could prove was probably very dramatize right, but still we know he did a bunch of keys.
Oh great Emily key was a bit of it. Ever hop had killed tons of people constantly. I like, I bet he was out on the lake and just like hey family with kids, and I want to be a part of that normal human life. Again, maybe or maybe I'm stash them illegal liquor, the basement of your hotel- maybe he wanted to if they would get there to eat dinner. I would have the mule drugs at dinner, tat each If a heroine, sorry, I called out upon a hop had that might not be re till now alleged, while this says highlight, skip the niceties and get right down to Hell, yeah, that's or order. I allow a few years ago, I was working for an optometrist as his medical biller, but would occasionally work the front desk to check patients in one day a long time patient who I hadn't met yet came in to get a new pair glasses
the bereaved lady smelled, like mothballs, would always asked to use our bathroom like you couldn't have just gone before. He left the house, letting that's a little mediterranean terraces flatters me exactly. I shut it down the right now, twenty two year old kid you don't know what you're an for any waste any time after that she would come in she just plain written off all figured. It was just her being old, but boy was I fucking wrong. Barely this woman murdered her eighty one year, old husband hid his body in the basement of her home. First six months, yep, you read that right. This woman claims she killed her husband out of quote self defence with a hammer hid. His mirth hid the murder weapon and rapped his body up in plastic bags and kept him in the basement. He was still working at the time at a nearby hospital doing a medical research report. When a colleague of his noticed he wasn't meeting deadlines, but his key card was still being used to get into the building who be yeah seeming suspicious. They send the state police to do well for a check on him and when they arrived, she refused to let them in the house later on. They get a search warrant and found the body the weapon and a diary. She had kept documenting everything. She stated in her diary that they are having an argument about housework while he was working on their kitchen and grab said hammer and killed him. That's not self defense! No, that's
the crime of passion right granted. It's probably not too hard to kill and eighty one year old, but still she was able to post her veil, which was set at about one point: five million dollars. So clearly she didn't kill him for the money, since all their houses across the country and overseas were in her name and her name. Only all their house a phrase that right there tells you that, even though the money that's right, she also was still writing alimony checks to his ex wife. So look like he was still alive, unfortunately still an ongoing case. So I don't have an end to this, but she was only on house arrest and could only go out to the grocery store to get the mail and doctors point ments. Needless to say, the next time she came and she was very pleasant as if nobody in our office watch the news, I'm not that she was a murderer, stay sexy and always be nice to old people, Chelsea
Y. All Asia was that ideology the big bit, and then she sees the news report magnetic live at heart. I better take note that the usual. How should I mean it's too late? It's really hard to get a bit that smells like my man, oh yeah, yeah, oh, come This one's just so near and dear to my heart- and I won't you read you the thai area, subject line again: hey everybody, after hearing Georgia tell stories about people buried alive. Error might have me of my aunt story, and I thought I would share I've heard it so many times, but it makes me laugh every time when my aunt Patty was an early twenties. She went out drinking one night and had a little bit too much for that. Next thing she knew she woke up in pitch darkness. She didn't know where she wasn't couldn't see a thing she decided to feel around in our hands touched a wall on both sides. Her first thought was: oh god, I'm dead. She was drawing not to freak out, but couldn't help
the thing, meaning that she must have been buried alive. Luckily, you, my mom, her twin sister, opened the door to the bathroom flipped on the light finding in the back of his puke. All over my mom said you fucking, disgusts me and slammed the door. My aunt says she wasn't even mad. She was so relieved that she wasn't dead or buried alive, stay sexy and don't pass out in the bathtub. Oh, it's all my gun, okay. So the reason I love the store, so much is because this exact same thing happened. My sister Laura when she and Adrian were in Ireland. Together they went out one night in. I think it's the city of dual in which is it.
Many coastal West Coast, irish town I mean to village and superfine they went, they got super drunk. They went back to their boot. What is essentially like an arrow, and no, I M not an Airbus and be a bed breakfast and in the mill the night my sister got up, went to the bathroom went too far in she thought she was just stopping or the toilet way out. The shower, which has a stand up shower, was the next room in so she went in and the door closed behind her and then she said she was in its pitch black right, she's like and now I'm in a box, and then I don't know how long I've been in the bow. My guy and I'm thinking have, I always been in this box, or will I forever bonus boxes and she started having a full on like
down and she started crying going I'll, never get out of the bottle and finally Adrian came in and it was like you fucking Idiot legal. You just went one section of the bathroom too far. It was the end when my sister tells it cause she's such my sisters, the one that's always telling everybody else to shut. I asked upping dramatic, so the fact that she was the one like literally crying going. How long have I been in this? My god? It's my favorite story and listen now: you're, not alone listeners. Aunt paddy did the exact sake and for the good of all the sun's call. My sister tried to kill me nice. So hi. So when I was six years old, my family moved into a bigger home. It was an old kind of historical house, the lead based kind.

So when I was laying down they applied, the glue gravity did its thing and my eye was stuck Jesus say. Wouldn't let me leave until I opened my eyes and they made sure no extra damage was done good. I can't quite recall the repercussions my sister suffered, although I'm sure it was none because she's the favourite, still talk about this event to this day and I always promptly remind her how evil she has the ability to be anyway stay sexy and don't let your three zero play with screwdrivers Maggie God.
