Yet another odoriferous incident from the state in which I live, but this one much, much fouler than the story preceding this. In fact, you might not even want to read it if you’re not capable of “clinical detachment.”
Also, if you harbor any sort of misanthropic sentiments, this is not going to improve your overall opinion of humanity.
Foul Odor Leads to Shocking Discovery in Bremerton Apartment Building
A foul smell that had been irritating tenants at an apartment building turned out to be an unkind gift left in the microwave.
An 87-year-old woman on Wednesday called Bremerton police to her apartment building on the 100 block of Lafayette Avenue North to tell police about the discovery, reports said.
The woman said on Monday evening she heard several complaints about the smell, a “foul odor.”
The woman looked for the source of the noxious stench, but was unable to find it until another resident told her it seemed to be emanating from a recreation room to which all residents have access.
The smell led her to the microwave.
“Inside the microwave, there was a substance that she determined was human feces,” the officer wrote in the report. “She said that it was not in any type of container and that it had been partially melted in the microwave.”
There were no suspects. The woman said she didn’t believe anyone in the apartment complex would do such a thing. (source)
How would you punish something like that? Any conventional penalty just doesn’t seem…well, creative enough.
Here’s a suggested warning label for microwaves, in case of “copycat crimes.”
