Here’s an update on Ahmed Rashed, the guy who stole a human hand and gave it to a stripper friend of his as a gift. He has been sentenced to 15 months of probation and fined $5000. If he breaches the terms of his sentence, he could wind up spending up to 5 years in prison.
Linda Kay, the dancer who was keeping the hand which she had apparently named Freddy in a jar in her home, was charged with unlawful disposal of human remains and enrolled in a counseling program. If she follows the program for a year, she will be let off with no criminal record.
Even with all of this new information, I still have no idea what the hell is going on here. It’s hard for me to find truly weird news anymore since I’ve seen so much of it over the years, but this definitely qualifies.
