I'm guessing they delayed it to make it speedier once it begins.

A clown shooting someone is not a nice jester.

The story is older than the 'journalist' who wrote the article

Killer clown trial, subby. Clown killer trial sounds like a trial over someone killing a clown.

Which would be one of the quickest acquittals in the history of trials.

Everyone already knows why sharks don't eat clowns, so I won't bother posting the joke.

The make up, shoes, red nose, and wig make them taste funny?

That's a good start.

I'm not sure how this hasn't been in my dad joke arsenal before, but it is now.

Usually once the defense stops asking for more time or the court stops granting it.

Most psychopaths rejected their message. They hated the Juggalos because they were subtly trying to dissuade the emotionally-unstable from precisely this sort of behavior.

Killer clowns are always a threat. One should always remain vigilant against killer clowns.
Avoid all sewer clowns, and never accept their red balloons.

This is an outrage...

If he had killed a mime, he'd have been acquitted by now!

Of course it's delayed again.  It's South Florida.  He can't get a fair trial there.

It's impossible to empanel a clown-free jury in Florida.

It's a right of the defendant so it can be waived at the defendant's request. From the article:

Prosecutors agreed to give the defense more time to contact witnesses.

It was the shoe prints that did her in.

It took this long because when the clown left it got into a tiny car with 38 other clowns. The trial will no doubt have a circus atmosphere

F*cking magistrates; when do they work?

A boyfriend was eating out his clown girlfriend's pussy. She asks "Do I taste funny to you"?

/or cannibals or something, I don't know.

She's almost certainly waived the speedy trial. It was originally a death penalty case. COVID also delayed it some years now.

How do you recover DNA from a case like that?  Sounds like BS to me.

Did she change her name from Kitty to Karen?

backhand.slap.of.reason: How do you recover DNA from a case like that?  Sounds like BS to me.


The suspect drove away in a Chrysler LeBaron convertible that was later found in in the area, abandoned in a parking lot, and it was a car reported stolen before the murder. The accused swears she was never in any Chrysler LeBaron in her life, but some employee of the car repo/sales business that the guy worked at (and the woman worked at, having an affair with him) says he drove both of them somewhere to pick up a Chrysler Lebaron and the guy told the employee that it was a secret that should never be mentioned to anyone.

In the car, police recovered a single red hair (not fake hair from the clown wig). The DNA from the root of that hair apparently points toward the woman accused, along with a lot of other evidence.

I was assuming that was why there was trouble moving forward on the case

The flaw in this logic is clear based on photos of clowns from the olden days looking objectively like the scariest shiat ever designed, and that was when we were at Peak Clown Love

Pointy Tail of Satan: It was the shoe prints that did her in.


Funny enough, her shoes are evidence.

In this case a costume store says someone came in right near closing time and begged the employees to sell her a clown costume with wig, nose, and enough white face paint to cover her entire face. The employees say she didn't buy shoes. Later, one employee identified her as the buyer but the other employee "wasn't certain."

Anyways, the person buying the costume didn't buy clown shoes.

At the crime, witnesses reported the shooter wasn't wearing clown shoes. The shooter was wearing regular shoes.

When searching the accused's apartment police found two pairs of shoes that were like Converse canvas shoes (close to the description given of the shooter by witnesses) and either the soles of the shoes or the laces or fabric had some strands of orange acrylic fibers entangled in them. It was similar to hair from a clown wig, and investigators say it was "identical" to orange acrylic fibers found in the getaway car.

I put "identical" in quotes because the science of matching hair evidence (even if artificial hair) doesn't work like that. Things can be very similar, but there is/was no such thing as an "identical" match to hair evidence. The only way hair can be "identical" is if DNA evidence is extracted and it's proven beyond any doubt that it's hair from the same person.
