Forget giving me a hand...I'll take a foot



HEADLINE:

Woman faces charges for stealing a foot.

(I'm not making this up people)




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!



Mr. Lambert has been confined to a wheelchair since the accident.

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!!!!

That is so gross! She just took it as a souvenir? And left it in her freezer? What happens when a friend comes over and wants ice for her glass of water???

Mary Moore said...

Cool!!!

I'd love to be friends with her!

Kristin said...

Did they say why she wanted to have a strangers foot? Sounds fishy. Was she going to eat it? Gagging.

Smilingsal said...

lol OH! Florida's underbelly is showing again!

Twice as Nice said...

WEIRD!! Or should I say WEIRDO :o) Now I wonder if she didn't take the foot if he could of had surgery to put it back on. Ya, know like if you get your finger cut off they can put it back on if it's not too late. There have been others that lost an arm and they try to save it. I think she should of gotten more then she did.

imjacobsmom said...

Honestly, who came up with the $100.00 figure. I'm sure a prosthetic foot costs a lot more than that. ~ Robyn

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

I don't get it! Why would she want his foot??

thedomesticfringe said...

I wonder if he had a nice looking shoe on that foot?

Some people are just crazy.

Loving Annie said...

That is too weird. Urgh. Next thing we'll find out that she's an aspiring medical student, or works at a hospital or the morgue !

cedwards55 said...

And people have been making fun of Illinois? Come on people.... Blago would have sold that foot for lots more than $100!

Tristan said...

AH! What about pain & suffering for the poor guy!

Phyllis said...

geezy peezy! Why in the world would anybody want a foot....and then put it in their freezer? And valued at $100???
People are so weird!!!

Darlene said...

Now THAT is just SICK! She must be some kind of wack-o!!!!!!

onlymehere said...

EWWWWW GROSS! What the heck would she want it for, stew? ICK! I'm grossed out beyond words now!

onlymehere said...

I just had a thought......we have accidental death and dismemberment in our insurance and I'm pretty sure that an extremity is worth $100,000, EACH! She got off way cheap.

mbkatc230 said...

This sounds like something out of a Carl Hiassen novel! What on earth did she want it for? Was she going to post a vignette with it lol! This is pretty strange . . .Kathy

Happy To Be said...

OMG She left him without a foot to stand on...weird...hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Jessica said...

LOL~ I loved this post! I for one am not grossed out by much~ long history of growing up w/3 older very GROSS boys and hanging around the fire department...lol. In the late 80's my parents ( grand ) had rental properties. When one of our tenants moved out we went in the house and OMG it was full of trash and had painted murals in the living room of whales. ( they didn't even look good, I so wish I had pictures ) Anyway~ my job was always to clean the houses and when I opened the freezer there where 3 VERY frozen birds in there. Like real birds, the ones I take pictures of eating in our backyard. It was WEIRD. Oh, & their where feathers on the walls and under the drip pans on the stove. FREAKY!

Have a great weekend!

Hugs~ J

tam said...

Holy Crap Thats CRAZY! WoW!
What a freak that lady is!
~Smiles~Tam!

salmagundi said...

That's ridiculous - she should be locked up on an insanity charge before she does something weird again! Sally

tam said...

P.S. ~Maybe she need something for Sunday dinner? LoL! MMM Tasty!

Nana said...

What the??? I, I, I, am speachless. "Hey Papa I'm speachless."

Papa says " THANK YOU!!!!"

What the??? I, I, I, am speachless. "Hey Papa I'm speachless."

Papa says " THANK YOU!!!!"

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

What on earth was she going to do with a foot? Strange... Thanks for swinging in to see the suitcase full of pink. I hope you're having a super w/k.. hugs ~lynne~

Eudea-Mamia said...

Shouldn't have been eating my strawberry pop tart - excuse me...

Mariafer said...

LOL! Foot fetish can be extreme sometimes...

The Blue Ridge Gal said...

What a tardo she is.

Penny said...

This Florida tart has severe brain damage!

Heather said...

That may be the oddest thing I have heard of. I wonder she was going to do with it.

squawmama said...

Really I would think it would have been a bigger fine then that... What a weird one even doing that... SICKO!!! But it was strange and a good story... LOL LOL

(((HUGS)))

Firefly@www.firefly-shop.org said...

LOL I'm not sure what to say!

Chris said...

I sat here and just staered at my screen, trying to of a reason some would take a dfoot from a car accident. Nope, can't come up with one thing.

Hugs,
Chris

Mimi Sue said...

Yikes! What if she defrosted the foot instead of a rump roast?? I try not to judge! Yes, I do live in Utah, home of Taco Time. We have one 3 blocks away. Thanks for coming by my blog today. Looks like we have a lot in common. Only your dogs are bigger than mine and your kids are younger. I'll be back when I have a minute. Mimi

Quirkyloon said...

OMGaaaaaaah!

Nasty with a capital N!

*still shuddering*

Kritta22 said...

That's drama! I mean, was she going to blog about it or something?

Rachael said...

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph! That is disgusting!! I just didn't even need to know about that!

But I am glad I do now...it's a great story to tell;-)

You are too much Nikki....that's why I keep coming back and reading your blog! LOL!

KC Mom said...

Sounds like a hoarder to me. Could be she was saving it for a rainy day...maybe she thought she might need it! :)

Lisa Loo said...

Holy frozen foot pop Batman!! Things that make you go----gruck!{SHIVER}-
I can't wait to see the CSI episode of this. And the whole value of her crime---for a hundred dollars I could get a pedicure...oh wait--I only have one foot....

Maybe she is friends with the tractor ATM robber we hd here awhile back.....

AJ said...

Ok, I'm not gonna be very nice...but that woman looks like she needs a hell of a lot more than some man's dead, laying on the side of a street foot!!! I'd be slapping that bitch up and demanding she give my foot back; cold and all!! That's just wrong!

Midwest Mommy said...

That is just so wrong on so many levels.

Mama said...

She needs a good kick up the backside :-)

Jannie Funster said...

Guess he didn't have it insured. Actresses legs go for $1,000,000 each, on average. Hope Julia Roberts can hang onto hers.

Bobbi Jo said...

EWWW that makes me want to throw up. That is just nasty. What was she going to do with it.
Maybe she didn't have a foot to stand on! ha ha Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Ginger said...

Picturing that scenario...gross. It's about as bad as the guy who wants the kidney back he donated to his wife.

Diane said...

Ewwwww! I thought you were going to recap Psych from last night. ☺ Diane

ann said...

Well Nikki,as I always tell you.I never know WHAT I'm going to find at your place...Ann

amy said...

Oh my my...what is she doing? This is one of the weird news i ever read. All i could think of is ewwww.

Twice as Nice said...

JUST ONE QUESTION...WHO'S GONNA FOOT THE BILL? LOL

I couldn't help myself.

Swirl Girl said...

At least she didn't pull a lorena bobbitt on the poor guy!

what would she want with the foot anyway??

Michele said...

I have never heard of anything so strange! Oh, my!!

Bridget said...

Only in Florida I tell you! I used to live close enough to there to know they are all crazy enough to do something like that. The woman was a firefighter with a 14 year career that is down the tubes now. Apparently, she wanted the foot for her hobby, yup that's right! She trained cadaver dogs.
I'd love to know if the foot was viable or not. $100 is insane. I won't be chopping my feet off if all I can get is a lousy $100. That's not enough to buy me a good designer shoe for the foot I have left.

roy/elisabeth dean said...

Bleeeeekkkkkkk! I can't even stand to touch anyone's foot when it's still ATTACHED to the leg!!! I would be the worst manicurist in the history of manicurists. I can barely stand to touch my OWN feet!
Maybe she thought she would freeze it in case they decided to re-attach it (so she could come forward and say she saved it), maybe she thought she could use it for an unusual doorstop, or just maybe she wanted to use it to kick somebody's bootie! WHo knows...what a sick-o. I'm just so grateful she wasn't from Alabama!

Raxx - A day in the life said...

As weirdos go, she is a classic, I mean that's just so wrong! Talk about not thinking ahead, you have the foot, now what? lol!!

Marrdy said...

What is with people? I beginning to think almost everyone is crazy.

How about that JAZZ??? Great game even without AK!

Justine said...

Are you kidding me? This is for real? Who the hell came up with the $100 price tag for the man's poor foot! I'm sure he thought it was worth a lot more than that. What a sick bitch that woman is and she gets charged for a misdemeanor. There's something wrong here!

Justine :o )

::Jan:: said...

She has foot and mouth disease. It really is quite disturbing. Sick.

A New England Life said...

Huh? What the ...

Every day this world gets a little crazier!

Tiffany said...

What a freak! She should have went for the arm. It's more valuable.

Kim @ Forever Wherever said...

That is a crazy story! I can't believe they would let her take it home! It makes me think of "Silence of the Lambs!" Gross me out! Gag me with a spoon!

-Kim

Not The Rockefellers said...

TOOTSIE POP!

Yessss!!!

Peace - Rene

Lisa said...

I always feel so normal after I read these kind of stories.

Michael said...

You know what's strange...I almost posted about something equally bizarre. A guy was just found dead in an abandoned building's elevator shaft in Detroit. The police aren't sure if he was pushed or if he accidentially fell. When he fell, however, he landed in a couple feet of water, which froze solid with the arctic temps we've had lately. So all that was sticking out of a giant block of ice were his legs. The Detroit News even published a photo of it.

xinex said...

Interesting story! I sure hope my foot's worth a lot more than that though...Christine

xinex said...

Interesting story! I sure hope my foot's worth a lot more than that though...Christine

Melissa said...

For the love! I've heard it all now. I think this could only have happened in Arkansas....just guessing.

Sue said...

maybe she's friends with Lorena Bobbitt??

Twisted Serenity said...

*lol* Oh my goodness! I think Ive seen it all now!

Jill said...

Ha! I followed this story because it was a part of my local news! She was a crazy worker! ... nutso! LOL!

WheresMyAngels said...

Oh I so know a place I would like to shove a frozen foot!

Bo said...

Hey Nikki...did her maiden name happen to be Lector...as in Hannibal's daughter? Truth really can be stranger than fiction...
;-) Bo

~♥~ Monica S said...

Oh my!! There's alot of weird people out there!!
I'd rather have a lamb leg in my freezer!! At least I can put that to use!

Monica

O.G. said...

It would seem that this woman has bigger problems than a $100 fine.

tammy said...

WTH????

♥Trina♥ said...

I'm with Tammy...WTH? If I were her family, I'd hate to admit I was related to her!

French Fancy said...

Wow, if you saw it in a film you'd say how far-fetched it seemed. Yuk!

ko said...

that is insane!

Yaya said...

That's F-ing weird.




PS check my second post down right now-it's just for you!

Yaya said...

Ops-changed it to top post

tardevil said...

A $100? A measley $100? Let me just say ICK! IF I were going to steal something, it surely WOULDN'T BE a foot!

Peggy-Just A Plain Gal said...

Ewwww!!! That woman is SICK!!!

I hope she has some assets, cuz if I was the real owner of the foot, I'd be suing the heck out of her!!!

Michelle said...

Now that is just plain odd!

J'Ollie Primitives said...

Strangest thing I've heard all day. Makes me wonder what the rest of the story is....WHAT was she gonna do with a foot????

MiMi said...

Ewww...how gross it that? She really got "nailed" on that one. Somebody must have "toed" on her. She must have just been head over "heel" when she saw that lying there. She must get a real "kick" out of this sort of thing. Makes no sense to me.
Only a 100 bucks? Someone should have put their "foot" down on that and asked for more.

Thanks for making me laugh! Please pardon all of the puns. :)

Charli and me said...

I can only hope and pray some sort of psychiatric treatment was ordered by the courts for this poor demented woman.

santamaker said...

That woman is creeping me out!!!!!!!!!
What a weirdo. I can't even begin to understand her motive for this.
Okay, Nikki, on to more men in spandex, please!

Jenners said...

Oh that is beyond weird! This post gave me the shivers...and I hope the police are watching Ms. Economou verrrrrrrry closely.

dana said...

It seems obvious to me that Mr.Lambert could use the help of my Little Pink Fairy!! She said she's available on Wed. at 1 pm this week!

So, do you just LOOK for stuff like this to write about? :)

Hope you had a swell weekend!! Dana

The Nice One said...

it never fails to amaze me at just how flipping crazy some people are...

Bridget said...

Hey I didn't post your number. They must have found it in the men's room at Hooters! LOL

Anna Lefler said...

Okay, EW!

Man, people will sell *anything* on eBay these days.

Tulsi said...

Unbelievable!!

Fragrant Liar said...

Um, there's really nothing to say about that except, Oh My God.

Somebody get that poor woman a dog's squealy foot toy.

wendy said...

$100 buck for a foot --say it isn't so. I am trying to figure out why she would take the foot --some kind of sick foot fetish. Certainly not what you'd want to serve with chicken wings.
Poor guy ---sick twisted lady.

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

Wonder if they called the "toe" truck! LOL
AMAZING idiot! Linking ya again!
You're the BEST! ♥

Lilly's Life said...

All was going well until I saw the pic of the foot. Now you think as a makeup artist that is used to blood and gore this would not affect me. Surprisingly it did, it was GROSS!!! The woman clearly has some kind of perverse foot fetish perhaps or that was her most favourite part of him. Yuk!!!!

As for it only being $100, gosh no way - surely.....there are some sick people in the world.

And before I go I just want to say I LOVED your love story. It is a made for TV movie, I am telling you. Seriously it made my eyes well with tears. Do you think if you gave me the name of that restaurant and I hung round there, love would strike me like that? I loved it and so glad you had a happy ending. You deserved it after all that commuting - it was a gift and fate!! Thanks for sharing!

Pearce Fam said...

that is so creepy

Cathy ~ Tadpoles and Teacups said...

Oh, my! What next??
Love your humor.

Belle (from Life of a...) said...

YIKES

Stacy's Random Thoughts said...

INSANITY! And only $100 fine? That's just so wrong on so many levels...but hey, thanks for sharing! ;)

ann said...

I know you have a million,but I have an award for you.I can't help it Nikki,you shouldn't be so nice if you don't want to clutter your sidebar,haha...Ann

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

Okay, that's one psycho chicka.

What a wacky world we live in!

A misdemeanor? HUH????

That Girl in Brazil said...

Ummmm ... I have no words.

....

Nope, still not there.

tiburon said...

I am pretty sure my foot is worth more than $100..

Just.saying.

Michaela said...

That is just so really really wrong!

Tink said...

Ewww! That's disgusting. Sounds like she's got some mental issues! Yikes! I'm just glad she didn't HACK it off and take it home. Ack!

Blueberry Buttons said...

There are no words for this!

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

Halloween must be pretty freaking wild at her place.

This reminds me of an episode from Six Feet Under where the little sister of the morticians stole a foot so she could put it in the locker of a boy who spread gossip about her as a way of getting even with him. That was such a great show!

Real Mom, Real Life said...

What is wrong with people!!!???

Piko and Kanoe sitting in a tree. . . said...

That is beyond sick!!! That woman should be put away somewhere far from human contact... who knows what she'll do next to get someone else's body part to store in her freezer, ew!

Liz Wilcken said...

I was skeptic about this story, so I looked it up on snopes.com, here's the full real story in the paper: PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities said the St. Lucie County firefighter who took a man's severed foot from an Interstate 95 crash scene last year has been charged with misdemeanor theft. The firefighter told the Florida Highway Patrol after the Sept. 19 crash that she took the remains to help train her cadaver dog. She eventually resigned from the St. Lucie County Fire District. She was arrested Monday.

FHP Lt. Tim Frith said the severity of a theft charge is usually determined by the value of what is stolen. Since there's no law specifically dealing with the theft of a body part, he said it was difficult to determine the monetary value of the foot.

The firefighter was released from jail on her own recognizance Monday afternoon.
