A man killed his daughter after she bought clothes with a $150 (around $2200 in 2017) worthless check. He then shot himself 4 times.

A man left a note stating he killed himself to establish a radio connection from Earth to Mars in the future, leaving his “future address” for the year 2430 so his tools can be sent to him on Mars.

Pranksters cause over $5,000 (over $73,000 in 2017) worth of damage to a cemetery, wrecking monuments and headstones and setting fire to a tool shed.
