Have you been watching Fox’s new hit show, “The Following?” It’s about psycho Joe Carroll and his merry band of serial killers who commit unspeakable crimes because, well, it’s fun. The series is set in Richmond, Virginia. And if you think it’s all make-believe, the photo above recently taken in Richmond could change your mind.
You have to pretty evil and sick to do something like this. This isn’t a one-time crime. Somebody has been chopping back this defenseless crepe myrtle trunk to the same point for years and years. The result is a warty, disgusting, cancer-like knob on the top. Who is responsible? Maybe Joe Carroll.
Beyond the Call of Duty
For sending Grumpy the evidence of truly horrifying crepe murder at great personal risk to herself, Marianne Owens is Winner #9 in Crepe Murder 2013! She will receive a dwarf ‘Early Bird’ crepe myrtle that never needs pruning from our Southern Living Plant Collection.
Grumpy has just one request, Marianne. Don’t tell Joe About it.
