Don't drop your fried yard bird.
According to a story published in The Dallas Morning News, Keith Edwards was arrested on Monday in connection with a fatal stabbing which occurred last week on a DART Green Line train.

Video captured the crime but it was the incredible sleuthing of a detective assigned to the case that lead police to the alleged attacker.

The un-named detective found fried chicken left on the train and "recognized this fried chicken as being from Henderson's Chicken due to the texture and coating." Police then interviewed the owner of Henderson's who recognized the man and an arrest was made shortly after.

Considering this detective is able to distinguish half eaten fried chicken at the scene of a crime from the scores of southern and soul food restaurants selling similar food all over Dallas I'd say that un-named detective has a pretty discerning palate.

Anyone know who the guy is? CoA is looking for more bloggers.

Sorry the detective is un-named. Shame I'm his mother.

Were there crumbs in his mustache after the investigation?

The shmendrik should have gone home and roasted a nice Kosher chicken instead of shlepping this chazzerei on to the train.  Now, he's ahf tsores.


I once saw a left over piece of pizza in a Sam's parking lot, and that solved the Kennedy assassination. 


Check the half eaten chicken for any DNA.



 So glad you tickled yourself instead of offering up your usual fusillade of N-bombs and racist invective.  Well done MMK!



 She's gone too far in the nice direction.  I was trying to draw her offsides, but she didn't take the bait.  :-(
