There have been several times in the past few months where a story written by fellow crime reporter Ashley Meeks down in Las Cruces, my old stomping grounds when I was sports editor at the Sun-News, was … um … unique enough to post here on a Santa Fe crime blog.
She’s done it again today and I now start to wonder if we should be more worried about her for finding this stuff so often or more worried about Las Cruces for having so much of this stuff go on down there.
And by the way, credit to the copy editor on many of Ashley’s stories for doing a great job in writing a headline that pretty much makes you want to read on.
Here are two more recent Ashley Meeks stories where the headline pretty much says it all, and yet you just can’t resist reading on, can you?
- Authorities: Woman rips off daughter-in-law’s nipple in drunken brawl
- Man gets probation in wrong-car defecation
