One of them weighed 500 pounds.

The fact that this happened right next to the Louisville Zoo makes me think that maybe some big cat got out had some fun and then maybe went back?



This could be a great storyline. A tiger gets out from the Zoo every night, enjoys the game and returns back.

A traffic stop turns up whiskey, a gun and a rattlesnake, police say -- and that was before they found the uranium

This one seems like a nice plot for my game, but will people like it in current times?


Depends on how you frame it. At the time, this was treated as romantic, but more recently people look at it and think “that guy was seriously nuts, and he did something really messed up!” If you can frame it not as romantic, and in a way that is non-exploitative (and your group is up for this sort of creepiness), then you could pull if off.


Yeah, I agree that doctor must be totally crazy. Stealing the body and preserving it for 7 years... and that's considered romantic? In my opinion he needed mental treatment.

Maybe the whole theory of romance between a doctor and patient is fascinating, that is why people in the 1970's considered it to be a romantic love story.
