Headless chickens found in Connecticut courtroom
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Authorities in Connecticut are investigating the discovery of two decapitated chickens inside a courtroom. Judicial marshals and maintenance staff investigating a putrid smell made the grisly discovery Wednesday morning in the public seating area of a courtroom in a state courthouse in Bridgeport. The headless chickens were under a bench. Authorities say the carcasses were decorated in silver, green and gold glitter. There was no immediate indication how the decapitated chickens got there and the discovery is under investigation. The Connecticut Post reports that decapitated chickens have been found outside city courthouses before, but never inside.
Umbrella mistaken for weapon causes hospital lockdown
KIRKLAND, Wash. (AP) — An umbrella sparked a scare at a Seattle-area hospital after it was mistaken for a rifle. KOMO reports an employee of Evergreen Medical Center in Kirkland, Washington, noticed a visitor Wednesday morning carrying a backpack that had a long-handled item sticking from the top of it. Evergreen Health spokeswoman Kay Taylor said surveillance video was reviewed but it wasn't clear what the object was. As a precaution the facility was locked down and the hospital sent out the surveillance photo. The man in the photo recognized himself and contacted hospital security to let them know it was an umbrella with a handle that's shaped like a sword. Police confirmed it was not a weapon and the lockdown was lifted.
