In this edition of weird news, thieves broke into President Garfield’s tomb in Cleveland Heights.
A cemetery worker found the 20th President of the United States’ spoons to be missing. The spoons were located in a glass case next to his coffin.
Police report that cigarette butts, a t-shirt, and a bottle of whiskey were found at the scene.
President Garfield — if you don’t remember — was in office for less than a year (200 days) until he was assassinated by Charles J. Guiteau. Guess someone felt strongly about Guiteau not getting the American consul job, or they really, really needed spoons.
