Cynthia Economou faces theft charges for taking part of Karl Lambert's foot, after he crashed on I-95 in Port Lucie last year. Investigation reveals she had taken the severed foot home & stored it in her freezer.
She claims that the Deputy Police Chief gave her permission to take the foot.
Cool they're handing out souvenirs at crash sites now?....if so I get dibs on his left eye ball!!!
One of the reasons that the case has been moving along so slowly is that the police weren't sure how to charge her. Since in theft cases they are required to assign a value to the stolen property.
Hmmm....the value of my foot? It obviously depreciates once it's ripped off my body...but it still has some intrinsic value I'm sure.
In the end Cynthia Economou was charged with misdemeanor theft when the foot was valued at $100.00.
C'mon a measly hundred bucks? He could have gotten WAY more than that for it on Ebay!
And always remember the famous words of Stanislaw Lec......
"When you Jump for joy, beware that no one moves the ground beneath your feet."
Or steals one of em when you ain't lookin!!!!
