A conversation with a neighbour of the accused:
“Sure the curmudgeon across the street shoo-ing kids of his lawn. Or the cross-dressing porn star who lights himself on fire in his driveway every night. And even Ms. Merritt who’s saved every newspaper, egg carton and cereal box since 1940.
But this guy cut his grass. I’ve seen him sweat in the sun. He drove a car! He also walked and talked. He ate carrots, I saw that. And celery. Plus he drank water and watched TV! The man even went to the bathroom. And now he kills people? It’s terrifying.”
