Old School Meet New School

Los Angeles, CA

Back in May, Helen Golay and Olga Rutterschmidt, both in heir seventies, were arrested for collecting over $2 million in life insurance money on two homeless men they took out policies on and then running them down in the street.

Problem was that the police didn't have any evidence. The best they could do was hold them on the lesser charge of insurance fraud.

DNA has come to the rescue, though, matching biological material from one of the victims on the undercarriage of a car owned by the two women.

It doesn't prove who drove the car, of course, but it does create a link between them and the death of one of the men. In Magic 8-Ball Speak that means "Signs Point To Yes". The Magic 8-Ball sees more prison in their futures.

It amazes me how you can make these very sick, very real stories sound funny. Says something about what's going on inside that noggin of yours. Not sure I want to know what, though.
