Woman Found Dead in Cubicle, a Day LaterThere has to be an appropriate Dilbert comic for this.
When Rebecca Wells, an auditor for the Department of Internal Services, was found dead at her cubicle in an office building at 9150 Imperial Highway in Downey, it wasn't because her co-workers noticed her and immediately called the paramedics.
She had been dead for over 24 hours when her body was found, dead and hunched over at her desk.
She normally worked in East Los Angeles, but was conducting an audit in the Downey area.
Her body went unnoticed for a day; she was working on the second floor of the office building in a row of cubicles where no other workers were stationed.
She was found by a security guard on Saturday, February 12, and was last seen alive the previous day at 5 PM after a staff meeting.
Investigators have not yet pinpointed the cause of death, but no foul play is suspected; except for ignoring a dead coworker, that's kind of foul..
Dead Man Found Inside Car, Ticketed 7 TimesAccording to the friendly neighborhood parking enforcement officials in the news report to your left, the issue wouldn't even have been flagged in the system FOR ANOTHER FULL WEEK after the seventh ticket was placed on the dead man's car had the man not been discovered as dead and not sleeping.
John Waldo was reported missing [insert obvious ironic reference here] nearly two weeks before the first ticket was issued, and the toxicology reports that will determine Waldo's cause of death will take a month and a half to process.
Don't forget to take into account that the guy who eventually reported the corpse assumed that the stench of the decaying man was merely the "trash" that got thrown out around the dumpster area. Lovely.
This one, really, more than most of these other stories reminds me of this scene from Last Action Hero:
Stalker Found Dead Outside Paula Abdul's HouseThis is weirder than the man who was found dead outside the fence to The Playboy Mansion (with that kind of establishment, the fact that trying to sneak in could literally kill you is absolutely no surprise.)
Check this woman out.
The woman in the video is clearly not in touch with reality, and worse yet, has chosen to be a nutter butter in head to toe pink, like Barbie only less attractive and not comprised entirely of plastic.
Embedded to your left is her American Idol audition. It's one of the greats. It includes her delusional personality, her street attitude and her inability to sing more than two correct, consecutive, notes of music.
Her name was Paula Goodspeed. At 30, she was found dead in a car outside former American Idol judge Paula Abdul's house in Sherman Oaks, around the 3800 block of Beverly Ridge Drive (if you're ever going for a tourist ride around town.)
Police investigated her death as a possible suicide. Goodpseed had auditioned for one of Idol's earlier seasons, but didn't make it past the first round of recruitment. She sang "Proud Mary", and wore a pink frock that caused fellow Idol Judge Simon Cowell to comment that Goodspeed looked a like Abdul (because you know, they're both ethnic and have the same name -- do you see why Simon Cowell's a millionaire?).
Anonymous police officials of the Los Angeles Police department's threat management unit commented that they were familiar with Goodspeed because of her involvement a number of stalking incidents, this one just happened to be a little more final. Officials declined to comment further, but it goes to show that a lot of people will do a lot of crazy things for the spotlight, including, but not limited to, wearing pink from head to toe with hightop sneakers and a long skirt.
Here's the news report on her death:
Woman Found Dead in Club after Lil Kim's Birthday PartyIngrid Rivera, 24, was found dead in a utility closet after one of rapper Lil Kim's birthday parties at Spotlight Live, a popular karoake club.
Of course, one does have to wonder what Rivera was doing in the closet in the first place: drugs? sex? GETTING MURDERED AT LIL KIM'S BIRTHDAY?
Spotlight Live shut its doors for weeks after the incident in order to, you know, clean up the utility closet and figure out what the f*ck happened. Rivera was reported missing by her mother on Tuesday, and Lil Kim didn't even hear about the body until Wednesday.
According to club patrons, the woman was thrown out of the club by the reportedly very heavy-handed security after being found drunk in the men's bathroom. She wasn't seen after the incident until someone discovered her in a closet.
Police suspected foul play, but no one was ever brought to justice (most likely because real police work isn't televised... all the time.)
Body Found in Elevator Shaft Frozen in IceAccording to a recent newspaper article, it took three calls to Detroit authorities and over two days before they recovered the body of a man frozen in ice in the elevator shaft of a vacant warehouse.
A Detroit News reporter working from an anonymous tip (yes, reporters still actually do stuff like this) found the body, and it was eventually removed from the ground with a saw.
It was not Captain America.
Investigators estimate that the body was frozen in the ground for months; no word on how the man came to be trapped in the elevator shaft in the first place. It's a mystery. The cause of death were also under investigation, with no leads in sight at the time.
Makes you think twice about that whole hooking up with a stranger in an elevator fantasy...
