People who work in law enforcement see the darkest, most bizarre sides of humanity on a regular basis. Someone recently posed this question to the law enforcers of Reddit: "What is the craziest "you'll never believe me" story that a suspect / victim told you that actually turned out to be true?" The responses are truly unbelievable. Here are some of the most absurd stories from crime suspects or victims that seem too insane to be real. Although in 2017 we already know literally anything is possible.
Friend of my parents worked for law enforcement as a psychiatrist for a time. An older lady was brought in one day, extremely distressed and yelling how her family wants to see her locked up in a psychiatric ward and take hold of all the silver mines she owns. My parent's friend went through the hassle to check the story, just to be sure. Turned out to be 100% true. Lady was not one bit crazy.
