“Nosferatu” Sets Fire To Headstone In East Tennessee

setting fire to a headstone Adam Fath, 18, of Townsend, Tennessee, was arrested on May 30, 2010, for setting fire to a headstone in the graveyard of the Tuckaleechee United Methodist Church in Blount County. Police used a K-9 unit to track Fath’s path from the scene of the crime to his camper behind a house. No reports yet on motive, or why he set fire to the headstone rather than smashing it like regular vandals do. What appears to be Fath’s MySpace page, where he calls himself “nosferatu” and makes like a gangster, doesn’t help much.

No doubt shenanigans like this will cause the citizens of neighboring dry counties to feel smug, because (1) clearly this kind of godless behavior is the result of the demon in the bottle, and (2) everyone knows no teens engage in reckless and stupid behavior without alcohol.

Does any of that make sense? Well, there’s a lot in East Tennessee that doesn’t make any sense. In a place where the bankruptcy courts struggle to find ways to handle people still living on the barter system up in the hills, peculiar behavior and attitudes are just a fine hair away from what passes as normal in the suburbs. Finer than a frog hair split four ways and sharpened on both ends, as my old boss in Knoxville used to say.
