Authorities in Washington County, Ore., said that they would not file charges against a very weird 21-year-old woman who had felt compelled, as a tribute to her horse that had just died of old age, to get naked and climb inside the horse’s carcass, to “feel one” with it.
Her boyfriend recorded the extremely bloody adventure with numerous photographs — many showing her smiling joyously — which made their way onto the Internet and available to any viewers with strong stomachs.
Said Deputy Sgt. Dave Thompson: “At some point in your career, you say, yeah, I’ve seen a lot of bad stuff and you see this kind of picture and you realize maybe you haven’t seen everything.”
In New Braunfels, Texas, in 2005, Robert Villarreal, 34, was sentenced to 50 years in prison after he sold drugs to the same undercover officer for the third time in a 14-year period.
He had actually argued “entrapment,” claiming that for the first sale, in 1988, he was so young (age 18) that he shouldn’t be expected to remember later what the officer looked like.
