A stripper from New Jersey was arrested after police found six human skulls and a severed human hand in her house. They were looking for a guy who was trying to kill himself with a hammer, but he wasn't there, and yes, this all actually happened. It is quite possibly the Best Crime Story Ever Told.
A couple of roommates told Newark's Star-Ledger, which broke the story, that an admiring med student had given the hand as a gift. (It's not clear where the skulls came from, but apparently, you can order them off the Internets.)
The hand's nickname was "Freddy." The suspect's mom told reporters, "She has a flair for the dramatic."
