Funny Neighbor Stories




Waco, Texas: An 85-year old Texas woman has been arrested by local law enforcement after being caught on film kidnapping one of her neighbor’s cats with which she is accused of making fur coats.

The recent disappearance of domestic animals in the neighborhood started to arise suspicion from local residents when some people started to notice the old lady’s particular fur coats, some even recognizing their cats in the coat’s furs, a fact the lady vehemently denied before being caught on videotape by a private detective hired by local residents to follow the suspicious lady.

It is believed the old lady started at first to raise her own cats but finally decided to capture neighboring cats because she “got too much attached to the little critters”, she admitted in court.

The retired fashion designer lured neighborhood cats with food and skinned them in her basement where she dried the skins. She also used the meat of the cats to lure other cats who unwittingly were eating their own species, a disgusting and cruel hobby admits local PETA spokeswoman Jane Churchill.

Legal experts assess the 85-year old woman could spend up to 18 months in jail for her crimes.





Summerville, SC — A Confederate battle flag flaps from the porch alongside an American flag. A sign on the metal fence reads “Confederate Boulevard.” The small coupe in the driveway is emblazoned with Confederate symbols. Right in the middle of Brownsville, the historically black Summerville neighborhood — “the very heart of the black community in Summerville,” in the words of Town Councilman Aaron Brown.

The symbols began going up about a month ago, a month or so after new residents moved in, neighbors said. The people who live around the home are outraged. Others in the community roll past in their cars, staring in disbelief. This is a community where crosses were burned years ago, neighbors said.

The residents said they understand that some people consider the flag and other insignia symbols of heritage, but to the community the connection is to slavery, servitude, lynchings and the Ku Klux Klan. “This is a close-knit community. It’s in turmoil now. (The resident) should have been more sensitive to where she moved,” said Patterson James, who lives next door. “She told me, at least she doesn’t have Hell’s Angels stuff flying.”

The flag and other symbols are part of a yard festooned with a wooden bald eagle sculpture on the mailbox, a red, white and blue eagle decoration hanging from the tree and signs posted around the electrified fence that read, “Posted Private,” “No Trespassing,” and warn people that they risk their lives by approaching.

A woman who came to the door at the home would not give her name. “We’re all human and we can make issues with whatever you want. But I don’t tell them what to hang in their yard and they don’t tell me what to hang in my yard,” said the woman, who is white. “I’m not trying to make issues. That’s not a rebel flag. It’s a Confederate flag.”

Community leaders are worried about a potential for violence if emotions get too heated, Brown said.

“You’re going to come into the middle of a black community and put up a Confederate flag? That’s not even common sense,” said Rollins Edwards, the former town and Dorchester County councilman, who lives a few doors down from the house. “We’re not going to have that,” he said. “We’ve got to get that thing out of the way.”

“She’s a nice lady,” said Wanda Duberry, who lives next door to the resident. “She says it’s not hatred, it’s heritage. Everybody’s got their own preferences. But considering the situation with the Confederate flag, I believe it should be out of sight. Out of sight, out of mind.”





CAPE ELIZABETH, Maine — A problem dismissed by the Cape Elizabeth Town Council two years ago is back on the table after neighbors couldn’t resolve a dispute over a crowing rooster. Councilor Kathy Ray brought up the problem at Wednesday’s council workshop after receiving a letter from Joe Gajda, who lives at 15 Farm Hill Road.

On Wednesday, Gajda said he has made many failed attempts to have his neighbor, Pat Kennedy of 17 Farm Hill Road, quiet a crowing rooster. But because there is no noise ordinance governing roosters, Gajda asked the council for an ordinance banning roosters on small, residential lots.

On Thursday, Kennedy said he didn’t know his neighbors took the issue to the council. “I wasn’t aware [Gajda] had gone to the Town Council,” Kennedy said. “He asked me to get rid of [the rooster], and that upset me.”

Gajda said lots in his neighborhood are less than a quarter of an acre, which makes it very easy to hear Kennedy’s rooster, which crows throughout the day, starting in the early hours. “If the rooster decides to start its day at 4:30, I start my day at 4:30,” Gajda said. “There’s no chance and no choice.”

Gajda said his family’s quality of life is affected, and other neighbors who addressed the council on Wednesday agreed.

“The noise is very loud and anything that can be done to protect the silence would be appreciated,” Farm Hill Road resident Troy Clark said. Kennedy said he has measured the noise level of his rooster’s crow at 60 decibels. He said that is lower than the sound measured from crows and songbirds.

“The issue to me is if my rooster is quieter than crows and songbirds, will they ban those too?” Kennedy said. “I think there should be an across-the-board decibel level.” In March 2024, after similar noise complaints, the council considered an ordinance that would have restricted roosters. But the matter was dropped after the “rooster in question” disappeared.

On Wednesday, councilors said this seems like a problem that may occur again if not addressed now. “Quite frankly, I have no sympathy,” Kennedy said. “This is a free country. If you don’t like it, tough luck.”

In his letter to councilors, Gajda suggested that a half acre or one acre be the minimum lot size required for having a rooster. He said he does not want to restrict the town’s farming and agriculture community. Gajda said he owns backyard chickens, which are used for their eggs. He said Kennedy’s rooster has been a problem for the past two months, and has even attacked his hens.

Gajda and the other neighbors said they have asked Kennedy to fix the problem, but that he refused. Kennedy said that’s untrue. “The whole culture in Cape is ‘let’s talk to each other and complain rather than go directly to the person we have a problem with,’” he said.

The neighbors said they have called the police multiple times, but that nothing can be done because rooster noise isn’t covered under existing laws against disturbing the peace or for animal control.

“My hope is that the town will acknowledge that keeping a rooster is not an appropriate choice in residential areas,” he said. “None of the neighbors want a fight. We just want our peaceful environment back.” Kennedy said he will stand his ground. “It’s silly. At this point [the neighbors] are being stubborn and obnoxious,” he said. “Who the hell are you to tell me I can’t have a rooster?”

Woman killed, dismembered Brooklyn mother over $200, spread body parts across Long Island, cops say

Leah Cuevas was renting out a room in her dead uncle’s apartment to Chinelle Latoya Thompson Browne, but there was a dispute over a $200 electrical bill that escalated to murder, cops say. Browne’s arm, head and torso were then found on different properties throughout Long Island. A Brooklyn woman decapitated and dismembered a mother of four and then scattered her remains in pieces across Long Island over a measly $200 dispute, authorities and neighbors said Thursday.

Leah Cuevas viciously hacked away at the 27-year-old’s neck and torso — cutting off her head — during a dispute over money inside a Brownsville apartment building July 5, officials said. “No, Leah! What you doing?” a neighbor heard Chinelle Latoya Thompson Browne’s gut-wrenching scream during the fatal attack. “Oh, no! Oh, no! I’m sorry! I’m sorry!”

Cuevas cursed back at Browne, telling her to “Shut the f— up,” according to court documents. “The scare in (Browne’s) voice was like nothing I ever heard before,” a witness told detectives. The bitter hatred between Cuevas and Browne was sparked by a dispute over rent and utility payments, court documents show.

Cuevas, 42, charged Browne $400 a month for a room inside her dead uncle’s Sumpter St. apartment, but wouldn’t provide hot water or reliable electricity, court papers say. The Guyanese immigrant, who came to the U.S. just a year ago, refused to pay Cuevas $200 for electricity she wasn’t getting, neighbor Donald Watson, 49, told the Daily News.

“(Browne) was tired of paying for lighting and having it go out, or the refrigerator going out and spoiling the food,” Watson said. “(Browne) said she wanted to take her money and move out but the landlord said, ‘No.’ She wanted the $200 . . . but Browne said, ‘I need the $200 to move out.’” Browne also accused Cuevas of having sex with a man on a city bus, allegations made in front of Cuevas’ husband, court documents show.

Body parts belonging to Chinelle Browne were scattered from Brooklyn to Bay Shore. The conflict came to a grisly and tragic climax on July 5. “That was the last time (Browne) was heard alive,” Suffolk County Assistant District Attorney Robert Biancavilla said.

On July 8, Browne’s severed legs and torso — which bore a tattoo that helped police identify her — were found in a municipal parking lot in Bay Shore near the Fire Island ferry. It was less than a mile from the home of Cuevas’ sister, prosecutors said. The next day, an arm was discovered on the front lawn of a home in Hempstead. A second arm was found a day later. Browne’s head was discovered on Boylston St. near Chamberlain St. in Hempstead on July 17, officials said.

In North Dakota, though, one woman is seemingly willing to spend the rest of 2024 pulling toilet paper off of her roof because she’s handing out notes to chubby kids to remind them that they’re chubby.

Seriously, a Fargo woman plans to give notes to children who appear “moderately obese” in hopes that the message will shame their parents into rationing their supply of Halloween candy.
