Future Shock

Last week a dead body was found after decomposing inside a utility van on the city impound lot, and the Memphis Police Department was confronted with a baffling mystery from an unknown address, thousands of years in the future.

Local 24's report states that the "shooting originally occurred on December 18th, 20017 at 3084 Avenue."

"The girl was like, 'My pants is tight, let me take them off,' said the witness." — from a WREG report titled "Tight pants prompted student to undress in viral school fight video."

The news story uncovered details about a semi-nude brawl between two West Memphis high school students.
