Oedipus: Eyes Wide Open

Albertville, Alabama, police report that Gary Helms, Jr. a nineteen-year-old boy, sought revenge against his brother over a girlfriend by raping their passed-out, drunk 45-year-old mother at Willow Terrace Trailer Park. According to the the Albertville police Sgt. Jamie Smith's account, the mother came to as her son was assaulting her and tried to resist without success. Understatedly, Sgt. Smith said, "It's totally sick is what it is." He is now in jail on $100,000 bond and is charged with first degree rape of his mother.

If one didn't know better, one would think that this story was an apocryphal account of
economically challenged Southerners by a rich Ivy League wag. Incredibly horrid!
