Officers of the law have tons of terrifying experiences
Waking the Dead
A guy on my beat get dispatched to a well being check of an elderly lady. After a few minutes, I get there and the supervisor asks me to climb in through an unsecured window. I get to the window and tell it’s to the bedroom. I can hear a loud television on in another room and I can tell it’s FOX news. I yell out, “Police, does anyone need help?!” as I climb in through the window. I hear an old raspy voice call, “Heeeeere.”
I run out of the bedroom down the hall to to where I heard the voice call from. From the living room I see a lady laying face down in the dining room area. I call out for her, “Ma’am did you fall? Where are you hurt?” I run to her and she is not moving. I touch her hand and it is ice cold. She’s dead, been so for a few days.
I unlock the door and let the supervisor and other officer in. I tell them I heard a voice and we need to check the whole house. No one else was in there. I know the TV was on but I could tell it was the news and heard the voice over it. (seej)
Had a case I worked as a detective where a woman,who had been divorced for two years, suspected her ex husband had come in and gotten into her computer. He left behind some paperwork that indicated it was him.
I called him in to interview him and he agreed to come in. After the interview he had admitted to still having a key to the house and going in to go through her belongings and social media accounts. Turns out he also got a video she had made for her new boyfriend from her email and posted it to YouTube. (DDT556)
About nine years ago we get a call from a payphone: “Theres a dead body in the abandoned building at corner 1st and Main.” An officer responds to the area and cant fond anything that would be considered an abandoned building.
The next day we get another phone call from another payphone. “There’s a dead body inside the abandoned building at the corner of 1st and Main.” Again they hang up without offering any other information. This time I get dispatched the report. I head up to the area of that intersection and start looking around.
There it is. A gigantic electrical component factory that has been vacant for probably the last 15 years. I call for another unit to back me up and we go check it out. We start moving through the building, trying to clear each room has the best of the two of us can. But this place is absolutely gigantic and each room is connected to what seems like four other rooms.
And bam, there he is. A dead guy on the ground, pinned between the wall and the cabinet. He’s on his back, arms in front of his chest like a T-Rex, and he has some injuries. And I nearly shot him. Not gonna lie. He scared me.
These two knuckleheads breaking into this abandoned factory for God knows how long and systematically stripping every piece of metal out of it. They cut through the first one successfully, the leaving the sharp ends exposed inside the cabinet. But when this poor sap started cutting into the second one he got the right of his lifetime. Not only did he electrocute himself, but the current coursing through his arms pulled him into the cabinet stabbing one of the exposed ends of the previous cable into his chest. (Forensicunit)
