Several severed goat heads (complete with numbered ear tags) and headless goat bodies have been found littered about Brooklyn's Prospect Park lately. According to an expert on animal sacrifices, these heads probably weren't the result of a sacrifice, since the goats were A) eviscerated disrespectfully and B) not butchered for human consumption. Police are baffled as to the whereabouts or identity of the serial goat killer, or any motive that he or she would have.

The most plausible theory: Goat Highlander.
Mummified Woman Pays Her Bills ... for Six Years
When the house of a 49-year-old Pontiac, Michigan, woman recently foreclosed due to an unpaid mortgage, contractors were called in for repairs, whereupon they discovered copious amounts of black mold ... and a mummified woman sitting in her Jeep in the garage.
The woman -- who was a bit of a loner, estranged from her family, and, according to police, not a suicide -- had likely been dead for six years, ever since she was laid off from her bank job in 2008. Thanks to all of her bills being on auto-pay (and what we can only assume was a hefty sum of money in her bank account), she was able to successfully pay all of her bills from beyond the grave. But once her money ran out, her house went into foreclosure.
