A suspected burglar was found crushed to death by a 900-pound safe in an Indiana home this week, local authorities said.

The Marion Police Department said they received a call on Tuesday from a man named George Hollingsworth who believed his garage was broken into. Hollingsworth told police that the door frame was damaged and the garage was so cluttered that he couldn’t tell what was stolen, according to a press release.

While cleaning out the garage on Wednesday to see what might have been stolen, Hollingsworth found a body underneath a 900-pound antique floor safe that had evidently fallen over, Deputy Chief Stephen D. Dorsey said.

Police: Would-be robber dies after being shot by store owner in West Philadelphia

It happened at a store near 54th Street and Wyalusing Avenue.

Police say a man in his 20s entered the store wearing a ski mask with intentions on committing a robbery.

That’s when he was shot one time in the abdomen by the store owner.

Jury reaches verdict on motorcyclist claiming self-defense in neighbor’s fatal stabbing

By Tim Chitwood
Jurors found a Columbus motorcyclist not guilty of all charges Friday in a neighbor’s fatal Independence Day stabbing provoked by a confrontation over his driving.

The jury deliberated almost three hours before finding Antonio Brown not guilty of murder and aggravated assault in the July 4, 2017, stabbing of Pedro Carmoega on Columbus’ Big Creek Drive off Double Churches Road.

Though Brown also had been jailed on an unrelated aggravated assault charge in another incident, he previously was released on bond in that case before being indicted in Carmoega’s death, so he was to be released again Friday evening, said his attorney Stacey Jackson.

Citing Georgia’s “stand your ground” law that says someone in fear of bodily injury can respond with deadly force if attacked, Brown claimed self-defense.


He rode back up Big Creek Place to Big Creek Drive to turn east, and that’s where a white pickup truck tried to cut him off, he said. Continuing east, he came upon a car parked along the road, and then a second car came up alongside it, blocking his path, the headlights shining in his face, he said.

As he stopped there and got off the bike, Michael Carmoega Jr. came running up to him, yelling, “What’s up? What’s up? What’s up?” Brown heard doors slamming and others approaching, so he pulled out a knife and said, “I’m not going to let y’all jump on me.”

Michael Carmoega Jr. ran off, Brown said. He then realized his bike was rolling away, and someone hit him as he ran to catch it, he said. Then Pedro Carmoega grabbed onto the bike, and hit a switch that cut the engine off, he said.

Brown restarted the bike, and began slashing backhanded at Pedro Carmoega with the knife as he throttled up to get away, he said. He did not know he had stabbed the man in the chest and cut his throat, but remembered slashing his arm.

Well well, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes, a Sunday trifecta for your reading enjoyment. Three culled from the heard, and none inconvenienced or on the run. Nice way to start the week.

Since Hondo was kind enough to contribute to today’s FGS, I present this, er, whatever it is.

Thanks Hondo, all yours!

    Crushed under a 900 lb. safe.

    Darwin smiles.

    • Claw says:

      The article identifies the Darwin Award Winner as Jeremiah Disney, so with that in mind, the Whiz Wheel spins up a SIBLDAM* score for him of 30 x 6 = 180.

      St Pancake’s (Rachel Corrie) long lost brother? And died so close to his “sister’s” death day (March 16) that we all celebrate. I know I did yesterday. A three stack of Kodiak Power Cakes, with two fried eggs (in butter – currently out of bacon grease), covered in Kodiak Apricot syrup. While watching a Studio Ghibli animation with my g’son. Can’t think of a better way to start a Saturday.

    “whatever it is”

    The nurled pine furniture is nice.

  3. Hondo says:

    You nailed it, AW1Ed. That “Frankenwaffen” POS in the 2nd photo is indeed ugly enough to qualify as “pr0n” – with ample room to spare. (smile)

  4. 5th/77th FA says:

    Ahhhh, nothing like waking up to a trifecta of DRTs FIRST thing in the morning. A harbinger of good things to come. Let’s all meet at the clubhouse for the steak and eggs with Irish Coffee Brunch, my treat. Happy Saint Paddy’s Day to all of my loyal minions.

    Outcast, I’ll pick up the winnings. Got Miss Thang with me. She said Jeff was just poking fun at her; She liked the way I got serious about my poking.

    That, AW1Ed, is a failed example of Machine Shop/Welding 101 Beauty Contest. Not surprisingly, it probably will send a round of some sort down range.

    Crushed by a 900lb safe…, was he Wile E. Coyote?

  6. Tallywhagger says:

    I am lusting for that 1911 Range Officer’s .45.

    • 5th/77th FA says:

      If it could make biscuits and sausage with gravy and fetch cold beers, I’d make it the 4th soon to be ex Mrs. 5/77!

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      I prefer a short grip on a full size slide. No loss of ballistic performance and better concealability.

      A half inch less grip hides better than an inch less slide if one uses an in-waistband holster.

      • 26Limabeans says:

        Full size in a paddle holster at ten oclock works with a heavy shirt.
        Dead give away to those in the know but the average person is clueless.
        All they see is Iphones.

  7. Roh-Dog says:

    That an AK-00.

  8. Outcast says:

    Hondo, that is not only Pr0n, that is fugly Pr0n, what did you do go on a sweep with Buford for Saturday night specials, that has to be right up there for #1 on list. Would make an interesting wall hanger and little more. If you and AW are trying to gross us out at least you could have got Bucktooth Bertha in a Bikini holding that thing. AW please get back on course with the eye candy. 3/0/0, good score for the day but in the last one it seems there were several that got away. First one, is going to be hard to write in detail as to obit, is going to be long line waiting for him on the other side, trying not to laugh, when he joins their presence. 5th enjoy spending all those winnings with Miss Thang, Jeff I’m sure has no hard feelings as from what I seen while surveying his compound he still has plenty of “companion’s” there. I’ll just stay in my secluded chambers down here and eat my week old baked bologna with mustard sandwich and stale beer.

  9. The safe perp didn’t follow any safe T rules while toying with the safe which was not a safe act. He should have checked out NIOSH/OSHA on how to safely deal with safes in a safe way so he could safely move the safe or what ever he wanted to do with the safe.

    • Jarhead says:

      The family of the deceased will likely sue the home owner for not having a safe garage. Their attorney will, for his 1/3 cut, claim “The home owner lured my client’s relative into the garage by having rolls of pennies strewn about the floor of the garage. Worse yet, the safe was secured to the ceiling with a trip wire and a sign hanging directly below which read, “PLEASE DO NOT LOOK RIGHT HERE FOR ALL THE ROLLS OF SILVER DOLLARS AND A PLATE OF FRESH HOMEMADE BROWNIES” Why, Santa himself could not have not have avoided the temptation!”

      BTW, RE: the picture of the temptress with the weapon. Dressed as she is, she’s as guilty of attracting big ol’ horny bears as one who puts out a salt block for deer. Tomorrow I’m beginning my growling lessons.
