Suspect: That Burglar Is My Evil Twin Brother!
William Earl Dykes, 40, says a convenience store’s surveillance video doesn’t show him breaking into the store — it’s his “evil twin brother” who’s carrying out the crime. Police aren’t buying the story, which has been debunked by the man’s sister. Dykes has a brother, she says, “but he’s not a twin, and he’s certainly not evil.” (New Orleans Times-Picayune)
