Thanks to Benighted for this one, via the open thread. It’s a bit late, but it has so much potential. That mugshot, it has to be an out-of-season Hallowe’en costume. Or is the zombie apocalypse upon us?
The zombie, Ginyear Jones (23) and her handler John Frederick Caldwell (also 23) are facing serious charges after the zombie’s 1 year old non-zombified daughter Melony Jones was found to be badly beaten in a motel room in Houston, TX. She was bruised, had broken bones and lacerations, and perhaps not surprisingly, bite marks. The poor little girl later died of her injuries, while her zombie breeder faces eternal damnation, to wander forever in search of brains, until someone removes her head or destroys her brain.
The zombie’s handler trotted out the tired old excuse that Melony “fell off the couch”. Yeah, and onto some false teeth that magically bit her? Pull the other one. The police then had to bring in their Zombie-English translator and managed to get the message that it was the zombie handler who hurt little Melony.
Police have charged the zombie with two counts of injury to a child, and charged her handler with injury to a child and serious bodily injury. Now that poor Melony is dead, I believe the charges will be upgraded to murder. I’m not up there with law and order, but because Ginyear is a zombie and not a human, wouldn’t they just shoot her through the head instead of bothering to arrest her?
So many questions to be answered, but a poor sweet baby is dead.
Rest in Peace, Melony.
