Wrongfully released men, hands himself into authorities

Man Turns Himself Back Into Custody After Accidentally Being Released From Jail Early

A Florida man sentenced to a year in jail turned himself in to authorities after finding out he had been set free because of a computer glitch, MyFoxOrlando reported Friday.
Luis Lopez, 37, had spent the last three months at the Marion County Jail following an arrest in August for his second DUI, driving with a suspended license, hitting two cars and leaving the scene.
He pleaded guilty to all counts and was sentenced this week to a year in jail, followed by a year of probation.
But then something unexpected happened.
“I was released from jail,” Lopez told MyFoxOrlando. “For some reason, I just listened to what they had to say.”
At first, Lopez questioned the guards, but they assured him they had the paperwork from the courts ordering his release. He followed their orders and walked out of jail.
“I was stunned!” he told MyFoxOrlando.
When he called his public defenders to make sure everything was in order, Lopez learned that there had been a mistake, and immediately decided he would turn himself in before police came to get him.
A broadcast on Fox 35 News showed him knocking on the gate and patiently waiting for a guard to let him check in, while his loved ones watched and cried.

Should i say Law Abiding Citizen? but i guess he did the right thing. because he could have been on the run now......

Russian Digs up dead bodies

What has this world come to??

Russia’s Interior Ministry says police have arrested a man who kept 29 mummified bodies at his apartment and dressed them up like dolls.
Ministry spokesman Valery Gribakin said Monday that the suspect from the Volga River city of Nizhny Novgorod dug up the bodies at several cemeteries in the region. The man, whose identity was withheld, dressed them in clothes dug up from the graves.
Gribakin said that the suspect is a historian who has authored several books. He said the arrest followed a police probe into the desecration of graves in the region, which was initially blamed on extremist groups. Nizhny Novgorod is located about 250 miles (400 kilometers) east of Moscow.
Russian media reports quoted police as saying that the man only had selected the remains of young women for his grisly collection.
Whats your take on this man?
