Ok, no mincing around…They found a deader buried in the ground with his hand sticking up in the air late Monday night.
Murdered…Bag over the head, strangled unconcious and then buried alive.
The jist of the story is that a loan shark had gone to collect a debt. He obviously knew that he might be in some danger as he informed his wife if he didn’t come back this was the guy to look for.
Monday night a guy was out hunting (snakes I think and no it wasn’t me) and discovered the body just 100meters from our back gate. If you want to see a really grisly photo then check out yesterdays Apple daily. Suffice to say that the guy had been in the ground awhile, with the hand sticking up in the air. Animals had been at it.
Our back entrance leads to a dirt road that alot of us use but is very remote. No people for about 2km and very very dark out there. It also overlooks all of Taoyuan County and the lights of the 101 can clearly be seen at night or day with the right weather.
Now, this is a road that people in our complex use often, but now as I was coming home I saw a line of cars by the back gate…Curious, I inquired as to why they were backed up like that, when nobody was on the road.
Turned out all of them were too scared to drive on that stretch alone, and were waiting for enough people to make it “less scary”.
Truth sometimes really is stranger than fiction.
