Weirdest Story That I Have Yet Read

 Grant Co., Wash. (1924)

Before 02/21/1924: Someone shot to death three people and wounded a fourth.  Adding to the confusion, the person sought for the crime committed suicide, but such a near perfect lookalike (that one acquaintance identified as the wanted man) was arrested and gave evasive answers as to who he was.  “Chief Dale says he is the first person he ever arrested who had absolutely nothing in his pockets.  Save for an accumulation of dust and lint his pockets were absolutely empty.”

Category: public?
