Over the past few weeks I’ve been compiling a rash of truly bizarre true-life stories that mix horror into reality (the zombie-proof house in incredible).
Being a huge Chicago Bulls fan, my obvious favorite is the displayed photo of two mega-fans rocking a “Human Heat-ipede” sign that was deemed “too gross” for diaplay inside the United Center, home of the Bulls.
The sign created by season ticketholder CB Parasco displays Heat players LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in a Human Centipede-inspired sign. The suggested headline from Brett (the other participant) to the source, Deadspin, was “FEED HER! Taj Gibson Certainly Did.” Thanks to BD reader ‘uhakid07’ for the heads up!
Inside you’ll find a few more random real-life horror stories.
The First Zombie-Proof House
From All That is Interesting: “Somehow, ritual drunk-conversation concerning team captains for the apocalypse has become a major part of the lives of 20-somethings. Having been matured in the Grandaddy-crowned masterpiece film (put “A.M. 180” on and forget that you have a job) 28 Days Later and the best-selling Zombie Survival Guide, we’re all a little too ready to deal with the 2012 of our dreams.
“The Safe House,” designed by KWK Promes, starts to get eerily close to something I could work with, if say 200 bludgeoned members of the undead army came over to eat their way into borrowing some sugar.
“The most essential item for our clients was acquiring the feeling of maximum security,” begins the designers’ website in the summary of the structure. Who wouldn’t feel safe in a concrete rectangle that folds in upon itself to become completely sealed? Even the windows are covered with a slab of concrete when the structure is on nap time.
The house, with its movable walls, has only one entrance, which is located on the second floor after crossing a drawbridge. Seems like the perfect opportunity to use a flamethrower and defend the life of your family, while stylishly nesting in a piece of architectural elitism.
Mom Says Horror Movie Led Toddler To Stab Father
A mother accused of domestic violence and child endangerment denied accusations that she told her daughter to stab her husband and claimed she was the victim of domestic violence, writes CBS Sacramento.
Krista Wagner, 31, was arrested last week after her husband suffered stab wounds and told police he was assaulted at their Rancho Cordova home during an argument.
In an interview from the Sacramento County Jail, the mother of three said she never attacked him and didn’t tell her 4-year-old daughter to stab him with a butter knife.
“He told the cops that I slapped him three to four times in the face,” Wagner said, adding that he struck her during the altercation.
The toddler did stab her husband, but Wagner said she believes her daughter was just trying to protect her and got the idea from Child’s Play, a horror movie released in 1988 about a killer doll come to life.
“I think it’s from watching Chucky,” Wagner said. “He lets her watch these kinds of movies and I [told] him before she can’t watch that kind of stuff because she acts really evil.”
All three of Wagner’s children, including her 19-day-old baby boy, are in custody of Child Protective Services.
Wagner is being held on $50,000 bond.
Virginia girl found eating herself in cage in mobile home.
Parents Brian and Shannon Gore charged
A young girl was found caged and attempting to eat herself in a mobile home in Virginia, and cops say her parents are responsible, reports the NY Daily News.
The malnourished girl, believed to be either 5 or 6, was discovered in a crib that was converted into a makeshift cage after police arrived at the home in Gloucester County to investigate a burglary last week.
The girl’s parents, Brian and Shannon Gore, were arrested and charged with felony child abuse. The mother was also charged with attempted capital murder.
However, the gruesome twosome now faces first-degree murder charges after the remains of what authorities believe to be another child were found buried outside their mobile home.
“I’ve done this for 20 years, and I’ve never seen anything like this in my life,” Gloucester Sheriff’s Maj. Darrell Warren said.
A month-old baby boy was also found in the home, but was in good condition. Both he and the older girl are now in the care of the county Department of Social Services.
The horrific find came as police investigated a robbery on April 17.
A child’s remains were found buried outside the Gores’ home.
A nearby homeowner reported his house was broken into and claimed gold bullion, a vacuum cleaner, a passport, $2,000 in cash and other items had been stolen, according to a police report.
Investigators trailed the bullion to an auction house, which claimed to have bought the gold from 25-year-old Shannon Gore.
Authorities arrived at her mobile home in Gloucester with a search warrant when they made the shocking discovery.
The girl’s blond-hair was matted and filled with knots. She wore only a diaper and t-shirt and was eating flakes of dried skin on her body.
Brian Gore, 29, reportedly told police the girl had been kept in the cage since the summer.
Deputies discovered the child’s remains while digging under and around a shed at the mobile home Friday evening. The age, gender and identity of the remains are not known, pending an examination by the state Medical Examiner’s Office.
The Gores are being held in prison as authorities determine how the child died. An autopsy report by the state medical examiner is pending.
