A Pennsylvania man is wanted by authorities for taking a Game Boy from the casket of a 17-year-old boy who was killed in a car accident on Christmas Day.
I don’t think there’s much that can top stealing consoles from kids with cancer, but with very time left to decide, we have a sudden new challenger in the running for “Biggest Douchebag of 2010”: 37-year-old Jody Lynn Bennett of Mentcle, PA.
Bennett is wanted by state police in conjunction with the theft of a Game Boy, Game Boy Light, and three games from the casket of Bradley “Boog” David-McCombs Jr., 17, who died Saturday when he flipped his SUV while on the way to pick up a relative for holiday festivities.
The suspect reportedly swiped the handheld and accessories from McCombs’ casket during a public visitation at a funeral home, and fled after being confronted.
Bennett’s aunt, Dianna Bennett, said that her family was friends with the McCombs and that they felt “mortified” by what had happened. According to the elder Bennett, the suspect was very troubled. “He has been into drugs, he’s into alcohol. He’s just messed up.”
Yes, Ms. Bennett, I think we can agree that adding horrible insult to injury by stealing from the casket of a dead teenager who was killed on a holiday is pretty messed up, thanks.
