Crypt robbers sentenced to 26 years in prison

Perhaps Doctor Frankenstein should give lessons on how to rob graves.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Two men accused of tampering with more than 20 caskets at a Martinsburg cemetery last year were sentenced Monday to 26 years in prison apiece in Berkeley County Circuit Court.

In April, Bowers told the court that it was his idea to go to Rosedale Cemetery last spring and remove jewelry from the bodies of the deceased, and that Ruffner went along with the plan on two trips to the burial grounds at 917 Cemetery Road.

Bowers told authorities he helped Ruffner and a third unidentified male open crypts from a mausoleum in the cemetery and take jewelry from the bodies, according to court records.

Bowers said a clothes hanger was used to get the jewelry from within the caskets, and the jewelry was taken to the Martinsburg Mall to exchange at a “cash-for-gold” business, records said.

This is incredibly awesome, from the fog to the monster to the way Batman’s cape flutters in the wind.

Thoughts on kisses

Non-horror related (or maybe it is horror-related to you and lovers undead or monstrous), but what are your favorite types of kisses? Long and slow, nibbles, passionate with lots of tongue?

Also, how do you stand on biting?

‘My name is Inigo Montoya’

I’ve never heard this story before from Mandy Patinkin and it made me love him even more because I know how he feels.

Under my New Year’s resolution for healthy eating, should I count whisky as a grain?

Sherlock channels R. Kelly

Well, sort of.

My morning routine

Lately I wake up with blood on me, sometimes small drops, sometimes nearly covered in it. But I don’t have any cuts on me. Weird.

Now there’s a dating site for everyone, including those who are ghosts.

Solomon Kane

I am a huge Robert E. Howard fan and I finally got to watch the 2009 film Solomon Kane, which tells the origins of Solomon Kane. Even though it’s not based on one of Howard’s stories, I think it’s incredibly faithful to the character Howard created in 1928 and is the best adaption of a Howard character (he authored Conan the Barbarian for those unfamiliar with his work). I also listened to the DVD commentary from director Michael J. Bassett and lead actor James Purefoy and it is a delight. Hopefully there will be sequels, it was planned as a trilogy, because it is sword and sorcery done seriously and with great action, acting, and set designs.
