Hitchcockian Reality

I have seen the whole Alfred Hitchcock Presents… series and I love it. The stories are great and could even possibly happen but I usually am just glad to be entertained. If these things never happened, who cares? Cool stories come from the imagination anyway.

I can see the guy burying his wife and then the chest pains start and he agonizes about covering it up while still saving himself and ultimately failing.

Murder Trial Evidence Stolen By…A Monkey?

A monkey has allegedly stolen key evidence in a murder trial including the murder weapon. Apparently, there was a key evidence packet that was stored under a tree due to lack of space. This is when said monkey struck and fled the scene with the evidence. I wonder who came up with the tree storage idea. I understand lack of space but under a tree provides no protection at all…in any way. You couldn’t put it in a more open place. If a monkey didn’t get it, a squirrel might have or a raccoon or virtually any decent-sized creature wandering by…any of them!
