You Can't Make This Stuff Up

I've shared some of the antics that my neighbors have pulled recently but I don't think I've shared this story with you. Back in 1995 we lived at Mark Twain Apartments and Ken was the maintenance man for the apartment complex. We lived there for a few years but when Ken had to have his ankle operated on, the manager brought in a replacement maintenance man until Ken was able to work again. That's where the story gets crazy. The manager, Lori hired Gregory Leonard and he came over to our apartment all the time to get tips from Ken about the apartment complex and where things were kept in the maintenance shop, we even had him over for dinner a few times.

So it was a real shock when he was arrested for murder. The police found a body hidden under his bed.

You can read the whole story here.

So you see, I've always had crazy neighbors no matter where I've lived.

  3. OMG, that is some scary sh*t! Did he seem creepy or shady to you? What was the motive?

    Honestly, I always thought neighbors were strange when I lived in apartments. Though it might just be that you notice it more due to the proximity!

  8. Okay, I've always joked about how horrible my neighbors are, but I could never match that. That is insane! I guess you never really can tell what someone's capable of just by talking to them, can you?
