Utah Neighborhood Overrun With “Murder Tourists”

Insider reports that after the release of Netflix’s  Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes plus the Sundance Film Festival premiere of Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile starring Zac Efron have ramped up interest in the notorious serial killer.

So much so that more visitors than ever are flocking to his former house in here in the avenues.

From the Insider story:
“A tenant of the two-storey boarding home told TMZ that the amount of people wanting to look around the house, which was home to Ted Bundy from 1974-1975 while he attended the nearby law school, has increased since the release of the series and the film trailer.

With five rooms, the tenant said someone currently lives in Bundy’s old abode, ‘Room 2’ — though it has now been relabeled as ‘Room 5.’

Visitors to the property are beginning to upset some of the residents, they added, and they close their blinds because of the invasion of privacy. While visitors only used to crop up at Halloween, now they appear all the time, they said.”

A Teenager Fakes His Own Kidnapping to Scam His Mom Out of $130

How much is your mother’s love worth to you?  Hopefully a little more than this . . .

A 19-year-old idiot in Sumter, South Carolina named Emmanuel Franklin faked his own KIDNAPPING last week . . . to extort $130 out of his mom.  Yes, that’s the amount he asked for.

She got a call from an unknown phone number and could hear Emmanuel in the background.  Then the guy on the phone told her to put 130 bucks in a mailbox at a specific address, or her son would die.

Fortunately, the entire plan immediately fell through, because the address they gave her was for Emmanuel’s DAD’S house.  So obviously she recognized it.

It’s not clear who the other guy on the phone was.  But what Emmanuel did technically qualifies as blackmail in South Carolina.  So he’s now facing up to 10 years in jail and a $5,000 fine.
