You’re Dead to Me

A woman attended the funeral of her grandmother in Clark County, Ohio. Blake Elliott, 19, was supposed to be a pallbearer at the funeral, but never showed up; it wasn’t reported how he was related to the woman. When the granddaughter got home, she found out what Elliott was doing instead: in the two hours she was gone, he had allegedly broken into her house and stolen TVs, video game systems, and other electronics. Elliott’s vehicle was caught on camera in the victim’s driveway; some of the stolen goods were found in his apartment. He is facing burglary charges. (MS/Springfield News-Sun) ...Supposed to be a pallbearer, chose instead to be appalling.
