Homicide House

Reposted from 25 February 2017

Twenty years ago, there was a quadruple homicide in this house.  The victims were teenagers and they were killed for accusing a young man of stealing a cell phone.

The guilty individual, as well as his two accomplices, were convicted and the house was eventually abandoned.

I drive by this house all the time and this week I was compelled to look inside of it.  It’s hard to describe how I felt entering the house.

There was a mixture of sadness and grief, due to the senseless murders that happened here.  I can’t even imagine how those poor teenagers felt as they realized their lives were coming to an end.  Also, I felt angry.  How can someone be so evil and callused?

I didn’t know the teenagers, but I feel for them and their families.  I wonder what they would have accomplished if their lives were not taken from them.

I left the house with a heavy heart and a lot of questions.

Update:  The house has been torn down since this was originally posted.

 

Chitlins – Strange Southern Food

If you are not from the southern part of the United States, you may be wondering what are Chitlins.  Chitlins are pig intestines, which are boiled and then eaten.

I have lived in the South for 29 years, but I have never eaten Chitlins.  I also don’t plan on trying it.

I admit at times I do weird and crazy things.  However, I have my limits and chitlins do not fall within those limits.

What are some weird things people eat where you live?  Let me know in the comment section below.
