"Police believe alcohol may have been involved."

Why would this be considered "suspicious" in Alabama?

Mr. Potatoass: Why would this be considered "suspicious" in Alabama?


His sister wasn't with him?

And he thought 'If I can make it home, I will be okay'.

Given the nudity, I'm gonna assume they'll blame it on bath salts.

Your headline is painful, subby.

Farkers, if you ever choose to commit suicide, do it with as many conflicting signals as possible.

You will not be just another asshole putting a 9mm in his skull, but will at least get a few headlines in the local news. Maybe get fifteen minutes of fame in a forensics show segment.

/Then everyone who ever shook your hand will have to acknowledge that you were a great person on TV too.

My brother lives in Alliance. Haven't heard from him since last night.
Surely he isn't drinking again, surely. Guess I gotta call him.

Subby, I for one was grabbed by the WTF awesomeness of your headline.

/haters gonna hate

You really need TRTFA. Seriously. It's a classic. The inspiration for the headline came from this : "Detectives are still trying to sort out many of the details, such as how the truck ended up upside down."

I'm as confused by the headline as by the article.

Good work subby!

/need to RTFA more carefully next time

TFA: Because the sheriff's office no longer works traffic accident investigations, the call was passed on to the Alabama State Troopers. A short time later, the Birmingport Fire Department notified sheriff's officials that there was a fatality and it was a crime scene, Self said.

Typical jurisdictional dickbaggery. No one wants to write the report or clean up the scene.

Usually goes down like this in my county:
Caller says they are at 123 main st and had just been in an accident. They are in City 1's jurisdiction. City 1 Police go out there to find out that it occurred a block away in an intersection that is shared by them and City 2 and the crash needs to be handled by City 2. City 2 Police say they won't leave their jurisdiction to handle the crash and ask County to go out there since the County has jurisdiction over everything. County doesn't handle traffic crashes anymore so they call the Highway Patrol. Highway Patrol says they have no agreement to handle crashes that occur within any of the Cities' Limits. Back to City 2, they still refuse to leave their jurisdiction, even by 1 block, to handle the crash until the Watch Commander gives approval, and he's busy in a meeting, or on another call, or out on lunch, or in the head; whatever it is, he's never available and just rides out the patience of the parties involved until someone else decides to handle it or the parties involved trade information on their own and call it even. Meanwhile, 6 dispatchers just wasted 45 minutes calling each other over this nonsense trying to figure out why these guys are being dicks about it.

/did I stutter?

Usually you would be correct, but we're in Jefferson County, Alabama here. For those of you not familiar with Jeffco, earlier this year there was discussion of being the first county to file for bankruptcy due to the incompentence and corruption of previous county commissions when it came to our sewer system. I won't bore you with the details, but suffice it to say that the majority of the previous county commissioners are now working for 20 cents per hour and work for the federal government. Need I say more about that? Thought so.

As far as why the Alabama Highway Patrol is handling traffic accidents, it's because a large number of deputies were let go due to lack of funding (see previous paragraph). Jeffco Sherrif Hale decided to let the state handle traffic accidents in unincorporated areas of Jeffco. Let the deputies handle other police duties, like investigating nude men who are dead inside their upside down trucks.

It was unknown
when investigators deemed the find
of the body
of a nude man
who was inside his upside down pickup truck
located in this driveway

TOO MANY PHRASES IN ONE SENTENCE
