Stolen Bones

06.04.2010 · Posted in Graverobbing, Weird Criminals

Andres Sotelo-Rivera, a 41-year-old man from Tampa, Florida, was arrested for removing multiple bones from a grave dating from the 1930s in Woodlawn Cemetery. He was caught by a cemetery guard and had several bones in a Spider-Man backpack. Soleto-Rivera had an unidentified accomplice and motive is unknown.

Miles away in Uganda, Steven Sebageya,  was arrested after police searched his shrine and found a human skull. Sebageya’s fellow villagers had complained that he was bewitching them.

Good luck ever coming up with a reason for making off with human bones from a graveyard that will satisfy the law. Points for the Spider-Man backpack, though.
