According to one cyber-security expert, Mahmoud Abdo was -- dun dun dunnnnn -- somebody the couple knew, and not from Egypt at all. (In fact, authorities are still unclear whether or not Egypt is even a real place.) It turns out, hacking a webcam is relatively easy if you've got access to the computer and the right malware, which we're certainly not linking to here. And if you're wondering if the boyfriend himself was the culprit, good luck investigating, because the woman isn't taking calls from reporters. Would you take calls from strangers if you were her?
Lawn Statues Stalk Family
Finding something for free on your lawn (as long as it wasn't donated by a dog) is usually a good way to start your day. When you're receiving gifts, though, there's always a chance that you'll end up with too much of a good thing. For one California family, they found out the hard way that while one is company, dozens is a creepy, ceramic assault.
Outside of Monty Python, who knew fluffy bunnies could ever be so horrifying?
The family stepped out one morning into the Southern California sun to discover they had a couple new yard companions: a group of ceramic garden statues. At first, they dismissed them as a harmless prank perpetrated by the town's cutest hooligans. But then they kept coming.

Bambi and friends finally tracked down Man, and they're pissed.
From July to August, over 50 statues turned up, ranging from garden gnomes to lions and bunnies. Not all of them were in good condition. Many were broken and chipped, seeking safety with their own kind in what they could only assume was a refuge for lawn statues. By the time the homeowners contacted the sheriff, there were dozens of statues around their house, some of them facing the front door as if, the family's mother said, "They were plotting against us."
"Stick your hand in here. Come on; it's safe. Totally ..."
Oddly enough, this isn't the only occasion of garden gnome pack mentality. In Plymouth, England, one woman awoke to find that there were a hundred garden gnomes camped in her front yard, likely marching back to their homeland.

And all her underpants were missing.
She believed they had been stolen from the local gardening center and reported the appearance to the police. When interrogated on where they had been traveling, the ceramics offered gnome comment. [SCARY THUNDERCLAP, ORGAN TRILL]
