Thanks so much. Hopefully after a week or two of nightmares this mental image will finally dissipate.

A resident who witnessed the incident said the woman had slipped 6 to 8 inches down on the fence. Gail Stark, the victim's mother, said paramedics had to remove part of the fence to free the impaled woman. <<<

Byers told authorities she went to her neighbor's house to return some garage sale items. But later in the day, the neighbor, who lives in the 1200 block of Northeast 81st Street, reported that her home had been robbed. Police are looking into the incident.

Do you think she will end up in the pokey?

Isn't this the third freakin' time this month that dumb criminals (or possible criminals) have impaled themselves? I'm sure I've read about three separate incidents here at FR : This KC one, one in another major US city, and then one that I'm sure was outside the US, but in which country, I can't recall (UK, Canada?????) Anyone have links to the other two articles?

Sounds to me like the fence made a citizen's arrest and held the suspect until police could arrive! Hell of a security system they have there.

Our apartment complex had to get someone to remove a deer that had tried to hop the fence into the swimming pool area and impaled himself about two months ago. Animal control agents pulled him off but then forget to put the deer out of its misery before it tried to run off.

I'm guessing her husband grabbed the stolen goods and stashed them away before returning to help support her on the fence.
Returning garage sale items ... yeah, right.

Messy reporting: if the home was "robbed" it means there was a physical confrontation between robber and occupant, in which case the victim is also a witness. If it were merely burgled, then there would be no witness.

Exactly what part of this woman's body was impaled?

I want to get a fence that has a runway for Radioactive Pit Bulls with knives, that, when they bark, emit a cloud of killer bees, and that explode when they bite you.

Radioactive Pit Bulls with Knives. Sounds like a great name for a band.

She said she was going back to the house to return some garage sale items. Yeh, sure!

This is a littleworse than the episode of "Leave It To Beaver" when Beaver got his head stuck between the bars!

Heck no. Everyone knows the logical way to return garage sale items is to try to hold them while scaling an 8 foot tall spired steel fence.

Too damn bad she wasn't returning a pole vault pole!

How about a fence in a Chappaqua neighborhood that emits a poisonous gas when 'a wideload' gets within 50 feet of it?

What a novel way to get a new piercing.

I'd love to see the ring for that one.

Then it still wouldn't be robbery. Though there might be a witness depending on whether or not the baftub were transparent.
