Daily 2 Cents: Lake Erie Monster Took Tommy! -- Clown Warnings Issued Ahead of Halloween -- Woman Carries Husband's Entrails Through Airport


Lake Erie Monster Took Tommy!

Bernie in Clearwater, Florida called in to tell of her family's lake monster story:

“I wanna tell you a family story that we have. My stepdad. This happened in the 1920s about. My stepdad was 6 or 7 years old and he had gone on something like a scouting trip with the... Well, anyway, it was at Lake Erie and at the time there was like a sandbar or peninsula or something that went out into Lake Eerie. It was very narrow and the tents were lined up single file and him and his best friend Tommy were in the last tent at the end of the peninsula out in Lake Erie. He was, even at the age of 80 years old, before he died, I didn't get a whole lot of details on the story because he would become very emotional but he was able to confirm to me that this is what happened. What happened is, some time during the night his friend Tommy disappeared and there was no trace found of the child. Nothing was ever heard of the child again. And the only... he said that the lake monster took Tommy. And even to the day he died he still said, the lake monster took Tommy in the night. So that's our family story and I never met anybody that was more credible than my stepdad.”

Woman stopped at Austrian airport with bag containing her husband’s entrails

Customs officials at an Austrian airport have stopped a female traveller carrying two containers of entrails into the country, believed to belong to her late husband.

The packages belonged to a Moroccan national who suspected her husband had been poisoned.

He died during an operation in Morocco, according to the Kleine Zeitung newspaper.

The woman was travelling through Graz airport in the south of Austria but was reportedly stopped by officials after they observed her behaving suspiciously.

When speaking with the officials, the woman said she wanted to have tests carried out on the remains in order to investigate her suspicions around her husband’s death.

However, a doctor summoned to the scene said a proper investigation could not be carried out without the full cadaver.

Austria’s finance ministry, which is responsible for all customs issues, confirmed the unusual find. - Woman stopped at Austrian airport with bag containing her husband’s entrails
