Swinging a dead cat collects even more Crazy Delaware Blue Hen news roundup

I can't even begin to keep up with the crazy Delaware happenings.

Woman killed when her own car backs over her

This poor woman failed to take her car out of gear properly and received a capital punishment for her mistake. From the police report:
"At about 11:45 p.m. Sunday, Reader stopped a 1997 Astro van she was driving on the interstate north of U.S. 13 near New Castle. The vehicle was left in gear and as she walked away from the van it began to roll towards her. Richard Cutler, 37, of New Castle was in the van and attempted to stop the rolling vehicle. It accelerated, struck and killed Reader."
No explanation of why the car accelerated or why the person left in it didn't try to hit the brake, or emergency brake or something. These stories always sound suspicious and horrible to me.

116 dead cats and a body dead for a year at this smelly house of horror

Neighbors complained for months about the smell from this house, but only when authorities gained access to the inside did they find the 83 year old mother's body in a box and 116 dead cats. The two daughters disappeared for a while but then turned themselves in to face charges of abuse of a corpse. You couldn't swing a dead cat without hitting another dead cat in this house. Add 90 euthanized cats to the 116 dead cats that they pulled out of the house. The mother's body had been in the box for a year.

Fish get a lift out of draining lake, eels are on their own

Here is your dam lake, you should take as many dam pictures as you want because the dam is leaking and the lake will be gone soon. Delaware state fishery workers are capturing and saving all of the sportsfish in the lake, but they say they will not try to save the eels,

"We did not attempt to move the eels, because the eels will do just fine in the remaining water, or they'll move out on their own," Miller said.

I guess eels are not a protected class and can be discriminated against. Besides, they are slimy and icky.
