theflatline: Well, the guy could have just called the cops, cause otherwise this story sounds a little too made up.

Yes because the cops wouldn't just tell him to come down to the station, fill out a report and call his insurance company, they would put their finest detectives on the case and try really, really hard to solve the crime.

He looks like a guy who'd spring the "trap" after getting some sweet anal.

So instead of finding the guy the short way, he did it the "making the news" way?
