Here’s a bizarre story out of Indiana that caught my eye because it’s-well, bizarre!
So, Dwight Shotts, 42, was arrested on Monday after telling a 911 operator that he was having a “rough” day because the dead body in his bathtub now “stinks.”
What in the hell?
WTXF reported that he allegedly called the police to admit to the murder of 35-year-old Anthony Cline.
According to court documents cited in the report, Shotts called 911 and told the operator that he was having “a rough one.” The reason he gave? “There’s a guy dead in my house.”
Below is an excerpt from the 911 call listed in the document:
Dispatch: What’s going on today?
Shotts: Well, this is a rough one. I don’t know how I’m gonna explain it. There’s a guy dead in my house.
Dispatch: Ok, what happened? Did you guys get in an altercation? Or what happened, did you find him like that?
Shotts: No, it was an altercation. It’s been a while back and I didn’t know what to do. I panicked, put him in the tub, and now he’s been in the tub, and now he stinks. I don’t know what to do.
Dispatch: Ok, how long has he been in there?
Shotts: A week.
Dispatch: Ok, and what happened, did you shoot him?
The dispatcher noted Shotts was crying on the phone and reported he was suicidal.
Once in custody, Shotts told investigators that he’d met with Cline to buy $500 worth of oxycodone, but changed his story to say that a shooter killed Cline because of “monies owed.” Fearing for his own life, he said, he hadn’t called police on the day of the murder, WTXF reported.
He has since been charged with Cline’s murder.
