Fecal Felon Update

Posted by on November 3 at 10:40 AM

Following queasy initial reports in this week’s Savage Love and Last Days, here’s an update on Behrouz Nahidmobarekeh, the Texas cabbie convicted of sprinkling his own dried-and-grated feces over pastries at a Dallas grocery store.

First, KGBT News shares a statement the fecal felon delivered in court, about how he came to possess the soon-to-be-sprinkled feces (sic, and sick): “I was sitting at home and I was in one of my [heroin] withdrawal and I had the feces there,” suggesting the admitted-junkie cabbie had deployed the junk-kicking maneuver touted in Trainspotting (lock yourself in a room for three days with three buckets—one for piss, one for shit, one for puke).

Then there’s this fascinating blog allegedly written by the jury foreman of the recently concluded criminal trial. Among the official-looking delights: images of the cabbie’s handwritten confession (where he admits to subjecting his poo to a “cheez grader”) as well as surveillance-tape images of the actual sprinkling. Enjoy!
