Finger found at Rebel Inn

Finger found at Rebel Inn

The Yoknapatawpha County Sheriff's Department confirmed that detectives are investigating a reported discovery earlier today of a finger in one of the guest rooms at the Rebel Inn on South Lamar Boulevard.

The motel's manager, Rick Crawford, declined to comment but said the motel and all of its employees would do "everything in [their] power to assist the sheriff's department with any inquiries."

A guest at the Rebel Inn who asked not to be identified said a member of the housekeeping staff made the discovery when she went to clean the room. The same guest further claimed the occupant of the room where the finger was found has not been seen since Saturday evening.

The sheriff's public information officer Elizabeth Jones would not say how the guest registered in the room where the finger was found is believed to be related to the discovery but assured Oxonians there is no cause for alarm at present.

"The people of Yoknapatawpha County should go about their daily business as usual. At this time, we have no reason to believe anything other than an unfortunate accident has taken place."

When asked why detectives and a crime scene unit were on site investigating "an unfortunate accident," Jones said, "The Sheriff's Department investigates every incident to guarantee the safety of the residents of Yoknapatawpha County."

Check back for updates on this developing story.

I could not imagine how frightened an average person would be to find a flippin finger in a motel guest room. Yikes! I kind of find it interesting though that their randomly was a finger disposed there by someone. The finger could have possibly been from someone who was murdered. Hence, the murderer probably thought a crappy motel room would be a secretive and "proper" place to dispose the finger. Although a cut off finger is probably an easy way to tell if someone was murdered. And who the murderer is. Clearly in the text above, the housekeeper said, "The same guest further claimed the occupant of the room where the finger was found has not been seen since Saturday evening". I am curious to see if they find out who did this, especially in that little county.

** WHY WOULD A GUEST ASK TO REMAIN ANNONYMOUS AND HOW WOULD HE OR SHE KNOW OSCAR HADN'T BEEN SEEN SINCE SATURDAY EVENING?

 

Who was booked in room 120? Maybe if they go into the registration books and see who has been given that room!
