North Carolina Woman Arrested for Disrupting Funeral and Assaulting Deceased

090304111945_funeral-womanThis one is a bit hard to fit into the usual charge sheet. Nicole Marie Loretta Leonard, 25, showed up at the funeral of a stranger in North Carolina, danced in front of the family, waved a wand around the casket, opened the casket, and hit the deceased with the wand. Before running from the funeral, she threw flowers from the casket over the shocked family.

Leonard fled in her car only to be intercepted by police, who report that she simply explained that “it was the right thing to do at the time.”

She has been charged with disturbing a funeral and public disorderly conduct.

  1. And for those of you unfamiliar with Failblog, they have some really funny photos. It’s worth taking for a spin.

  2. Buddha:
    It was sent to me as an e-mail,and just recheking all I can do is forward story,there is no link.But there is picture of license and the guy and his girlfriend.the actual license.The last two letters for the state make me think it happened im MaSS,THE ZIP CODE OF STATE IS 37208.

  3. eniobob,

    Have you got a link to the source on that? That’s so funny I’d like to read it.

  4. Maybe she was with this guy:

    Running stop light = $100.00

    DUI = $5000.00

    Not wearing a seat belt = $50.00

    Putting you & your girlfriend’s photo on your fake driver’s license = PRI C ELESS

  5. The explanation she gave was classic new age stuff, although I’m leaning towards her having a connection with the deceased (I’d like to see the DNA test) as well as being a new ager. I’m with pardon me on the action itself!

  6. My personal theory is closet Dadaist, there are more out there than you might think.

  7. ‘Fredo,

    No. Sorry, but no. No bud in that scenario. Think harder substance or worse. One rockin’ the gange may THINK about doing what she did, because let’s face it, it is funny. In a novel or a film, I can see this being played for big laughs. However, IRL, the resulting giggling fits would likely prevent them from executing the plan. I’ve seen many a questionable plan derailed in just this manner. Plus all it would take to harsh that high would be one person to say, “Dude, what if that was your dad/grandpa/brother?”

    Then it would be time for Cheetos and remorse.

    My prediction? She’s just garden variety crazy or the stupidest, most selfish woman I’ve seen in quite a while.

  8. Bud don’t make nobody act like that she must have been on some heavy drugs

  9. She looks harmless enough in the photo. Maybe it’s a cult thing. Or maybe she had had a particularly unpleasant encounter with the guy when he was alive.

  10. As Niven so noted, “The perversity of the universe tends toward the maximum.”

  11. Whenever there is a wand involved, although not Cinderella or even Rindercella, it is still “bibbidi-bobbidi-boo”…

    ‘The Magic Song’

    “If your mind is in a dither, and your heart is in a haze,
    I’ll haze your dither, and dither your haze, with a magic phrase.”

    “Salagadoola mechicka boola
    Put ’em together and what have you got

    “If you’re chased around by trouble, and followed by a jinx, I’ll jinx your trouble, and trouble your jinx, in less than forty winks.”

    bibbidi. boddibdi. boo…

    Unfortunately, the family was denied the decorum and dignity that are so important during the final rite of passage of a family member. This woman’s bizarre behavior makes about as much sense as the song, the family is forced to remember her acts of desecration, and how do you ever find real justice in such cases.
