Off Topic

I'm pretty sure the guy who lives next door to my parents is a serial killer.

I hate when that happens.
Got more details?
Like, possible victims? Modus operandi? Poured a new patio?

Bacon Ranch said...

No I'm not

Do you live next door to your parents?

Seven of Eleven said...

Not everyone who buys Lubriderm is bad...

Froggy England said...

My husband keeps thinking the old lady next to us has died. She hasn't,,,but whenever we don't see her for awhile he comments that she's dead. I really wish he would stop it,,,,

Steampunk Jazz said...

Is this where we post stories about our neighbors?

Ray Nicolet said...

Everyone has that neighbor.

GatorGirl said...

My old neighbor was accused of killing his missing wife. .. This was in jacksonville in 1993... And the news station came out and asked me if I thought he did it and I said yes. .. What the hell was I thinking I was on the 6o clock news. .. anyways they never found his wife but a year later he was arrested for killing his mom. ..greg somebody....fyi it was a nice neighborhood!

Kno Won Uno said...

I dated a neurosurgeon who, I came to believe, had offed his first wife.
But you didn't hear that from me. Not to mention is was entirely insane to think such a thing! Ha, silly me.

Renoblondee said...

We have neighbors up the road that blacked out their windows. They're total creepers.

Pen-a-lope said...

Somebody has been watching too much Investigative Discovery. LoL

Bacon Ranch said...

Holy cow Gator, you were on the news saying it? Did you move after that?
Obviously it being 21 yrs later and you still being with is, you're okay. So I hope you don't mind that your story made me laugh.

"Yes I think John Doe 4 houses down from me killed his wife"

(next day going out to get the paper)

"Uh, Hey John. How's it going?"

Steampunk Jazz said...

Wow Gator!
I was going to bring up the homeless guy living on my next door neighbors' porch, that I give electricity to for his TV...or mention the crack head on the other side that burned down his backdoor mudroom trying to hide the pipe he just hit, from his girlfriend.

Sherry said...

Renoblondee: They're not creepers, they're tweakers.

I love in a commercial district and have no neighbors after quittin' time. I love it!

No one creepy to worry about. Just does Safeway have Lagunitas on sale again this week.

GatorGirl said...

I was 24 and stupid. .. But the rain I thought it was I saw him and said How's it going and he said not great the cops won't leave me alone about my missing wife. .. Not Oh I'm devastated about my wife or anything. ..I knew it then

GatorGirl said...

Reason not rain. .. Oh and my brother in law was his contractor and the fbi had him come give a statement about when the patio had been poured... They dug it up but only found dog bones. .. With the muzzle taped

GatorGirl said...

Greg Thomas that was his name. .. damn I was stupid

TalksTooMuch said...

GatorGirl, that's even creepier than a missing wife!

TalksTooMuch said...

I think, technically, we're not allowed to talk about our neighbours here. It's OFF TOPIC! So anything but what Enty posted above.

How is your day off?? We missed you yesterday!

Steampunk Jazz said...

Dang Gator, you should write! Tight sentance with a great end! " ..with the muzzle taped.." Gave me chills. ( I read it in the cold case voiceover of Bill Kurtis :-D )

GatorGirl said...

Yeah and when I heard he got arrested I was like yay they found that poor girl and the news was no he killed his mom. ..I did not see that coming. .. But the night they dug up his yard we all got our lawn chairs out and watched and I called the local fox news station and said get over here you're getting scooped! Haha dumb recent journalism graduate I was

Bacon Ranch said...

Whoa Gator, I just looked that up.
Looks like he admitted to killing the wife (didn't want to pay divorce settlement. Tied her up, she tried to hop her way out of the house, dragged her back in by her hair and put her in the trunk of her car) but wouldn't tell where the body is.
Killed his mom because he thought she would turn him in.

You just never know with neighbors, huh?

GatorGirl said...

Nope not at all. .. sad because rumor was later he told his jail mate that he fed her to the sharks off Jax Beach. ..

Seven of Eleven said...

Jax has a beach?

The things you learn.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Picked up some FRREEEE plants after spending the night at a friends house after a Season 4 marathon of Downtown Abbey.
I am now lollygagging as opposed to planting :-D

Wen said...

My brother lent a neighbor a brand new, heavy duty extension cord. Paid about 50 bucks for it. Never got it back. Turns our the guy hung himself with it. People can be so rude.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

@Reno - Martin Scorsese did the same thing back when he was on coke.

Sherry said...

Oh Wen..I'm horrible because I laughed at that.

Jackonville beach Seven. They call it Jax down south.

Anothergrayhare said...

this Greg Thomas? Sounds creepy.

bellaluna said...

I have not one but two neighbors who look like Charles Manson.

Robert said...

If I were Enty, I'd seriously consider taking out large life insurance policies on the parents.

califblondy said...

Don't call the LAPD, Enty. You're better off buying your Dad a big baseball bat.

Reno - meth lab

EvieShackles said...

I had a neighbor like that. He looked like Ted Kaczynski. He'd be out in his front yard in the middle of the night digging holes. Never came out in the daylight. Weirdo... Also in FL... other side though, P'cola.

BeckyMae said...

I lived in Edinburgh in the mid 90's and when the photo was released of the Dunblane killer, I thought for sure it was this weird dude I'd shared a flat with for a few weeks when I first arrived. He used to get really drunk (not unusual for a Scot) and have fights with his 'girlfriend' who I worked out was just him talking in a very high voice....to himself! Very creepy.....he wasn't the Dunblane guy but the resemblance was uncanny....

Alita said...

Seven - I heard Mooshki has a pig farm.

Alita said...

"US and Russian ‘military dolphins’ specially trained in underwater combat could face off for the first time as tensions in Ukraine deteriorate further."

OT on the OT.

At first when I saw this news headline I was sad, but then my imagination kicked in. I would describe myself as pre-coffee giddy.

Leekalicious said...

Right after I finished college I worked at a restaurant afternoons and evenings. A girl who had recently moved to Ontario from British Columbia was hired. The ladies were talking about famous people that they knew or had known. The BC girl piped up: "My ex was famous". When I asked who it was, she said she had dated Clifford Olsen. (serial killer).

PugsterMom said...

Terrifying.

PugsterMom said...

My ex and I lived in L.A. in one of those apartment buildings shaped in a rectangle where you can see everyone walk by. There was an unassuming guy across the way. One day I said, "That's the kind of guy who you find out later is a serial murderer." Every time we saw him come home, I'd say "The murderer is home" and my husband would crack up laughing. Poor guy was probably the nicest guy ever. I bet you thought I'd end this story by saying that he WAS in fact a murderer. Sorry to disappoint. ;)

Cee Kay said...

Well, geez, Enty, until they're caught every serial killer has to live SOMEWHERE.

I have to say, I've had some pretty interesting neighbours but I don't think any of them has ever killed anyone. Actually, the safest I ever felt was when I lived two houses down from a drug dealer. Really nice guy with lots of big friends. He just wanted to sell his wares and didn't want any trouble, but if trouble came to visit our street it got dealt with pretty efficiently.

Chief2224 said...

My sister and I are pretty certain her next door neighbor is planning to kill another neighbor. He always used to be pretty nice but then he lost his shit when his wife left him. The guy rarely sleeps and is outside working in his yard all the time. One time my sister looked out her window and found him standing in her back yard (it was raining), walking around in circles and talking to himself. He became friends with another neighbor, a single woman, but he wants more and she keeps turning down his advances. Now he's PISSED and he's gotten aggressive enough with her that she has filed a restraining order. There is a vacant house next door to this woman that is up for sale. This weekend, the crazy guy was telling my sister that he thinks there is a squatter in the house - some mysterious "black guy" that nobody else in the neighborhood has seen. My theory is that he's plotting to kill her and to blame it on the "black guy" squatting in the vacant house next door. I don't really know what to do with this, though. I mean, I'm probably just paranoid because I watch too much Investigation Discovery. But what if I'm not and he really *is* up to something??

WareCat said...

My neighbors r Armenian.
They're not part of the KK Klan,
But, they r just as loud & guady.

Alita said...

In my (limited) experience Cee Kay, it wasn't the drug dealers themselves that caused problems - it was their addict customers. The portion of them that preferred using other people's money to fund their habit, at any rate. Opportunistic theft went up a lot.

Alita said...

That's really freaky Chief2224- one of those deals where it will almost certainly be okay, but if it isn't you'll regret inaction.

I think I'd tell the single woman neighbour about this mystery person - and see if it's possible to get some authorities to look into the 'squatter,' because maybe just showing that action has occurred will stop his hand.

Chief2224 said...

Oh, that's a good idea, Alita! Yeah, this is one instance where I really don't want to be right.

Anothergrayhare said...

Alita you should get the police involved. We had a case in Toronto where an old house was slated for demolition out in the middle of a field somewhere, when someone was doing a final walk through they discovered a dungeon in the basement, newly built with restraints and everything. Ended up being that some guy blamed a woman for stealing his wife, and had planned to kidnap her and keep./torture here there. Had spent months getting his chamber ready and no one noticed. Creepy.

Anothergrayhare said...

"torture HER there". The woman had befriended the wife and encouraged said wife to leave abusive husband.

Gayeld said...

This guy?

Renoblondee said...

Yeah, but guys they're like Mennonites or something. It's a brother, his disabled brother and the girlfriend of brother #1. She wears the hair cover and long homespun skirts always. Also they have like tent revival thingies in their back yard. They are weird!

Alita said...

Anothergreyhair - it's Chief that had the quandry.

Good luck, @Chief - I imagine how I'd be feeling if I were you, a bit of a pit in my stomach. Scary stuff.
