A skull found in a front yard was of a man who was electrocuted after trying to steal electricity, police in Alabama said.
Sheriff Matthew Wade of Calhoun County, Ala., identified the man as 56-year-old Randall Stephens, who was released from Calhoun County Jail last month after spending seven months behind bars on drug and gun charges, according to AL.com.
At the time of his arrest last year, Stephens had been stealing electricity.
Meet late Randall “Electric” Stephans.
If you have ever worn camouflage in your mug shot, you might a redneck. In some ways I applaud him for pulling it off the first time. Its not like power lines are dangerous or anything.
Wade and investigators found a ladder, jumper cables, and a belt at the power pole, and concluded Stephens had been jumping the power lines to illegally get electricity to his home.
Jumper cables? Make sense, works for car why no the house? Was he plan just to string bunch of sets together and boom, free power.
On Friday, Law enforcement got a call from a neighbor about the skull in the front yard at about 7 a.m. as he was leaving his home. Upon searching the nearby area, deputies found a body at the bottom of a power pole that was already badly decomposed.
While officers do not know exactly when Stephens died, Wade issued the warning, “Respect electricity. Not only is stealing power illegal, it is deadly.”
The only reason anyone found this guy was because Rover picked up skull and brought it home as a new bone to chew on. Nobody reported him missing. How hated do you have be for nobody to care in any form about you.Obviously he didn’t knock power out to the neighborhood.
I got one last question. Does this quality for that show 1000 Ways to Die?
