    The garden gnome, out on bond, is expected to plead not guilty to being an accessory. The gnome had no comment for the media at this time, and details of its relationship to the victim have not been established.

    I think it's hysterical looking. But I'd be gettin rid of it. How do you get rid of it without pissing that thing of more? Talk about bad Juju.

    Does make you wonder about the grand scheme of things and a master plan and all of that stuff...was this woman really destined to die pinned under a lawn/garden ornament from the time of her birth...? Yikes...

    no way

    she had to have hit her head & been unconscious

    the pond is tiny - in fact I've never seen a 'pond' so tiny - and she would've been able to pull her body around the wooden gnome and lift her head up for air, even face-down ... half of her body would've been out of the pond anyway, it's so small

    I don't believe the acc't of what happened for a minute

    I really hope LE does not buy such a ridiculous story. I do not believe it at all! Keeping the gnome that killed her,what is that his trophy if he gets away with murder!

    um, this thread freaks me out.

    You know how some people are like pathologically freaked out by clowns? I am not like spazzed by them, by that is because I don't go around them or look at that image. Like garden gnomes? Forget it, they are Creepy with a capital C. That little dude on the travel commercial gives me the willies and I avoid watching when possible, lol.

    I could not even bring myself to open this thread til now, although I have seen it over there on the list since post 1.

    What a bizarre way to die?!?! I mean really. I am a little disconcerted and uncomfortable with this whole story.

    *Shudder*

    It seems odd to me that even if she couldn't get her whole body out of the pond, couldn't she have at least turned her head so she could breathe?? Not saying I don't believe the story, it just seems a little strange.

    And that thing does look like a wiener with a face.

    What a freaky story. I've always been freaked out by garden gnomes! I feel kind of bad for laughing, cause the woman died, but it is funny! I just wonder if her death didn't happen the way they said it did.

    If you can't tell that thing is evil at first glance you're a nut. JMO

    I think it's more likely that the gnome was destined to kill someone. JMO

    Creepy indeed!

    Garden Gnomes are straight up tacky anyways.I don't know what is worse....gnomes or people who spray paint tires white and then plant flowers in them.Straight up ghetto.
