Sure, Mountain Dew has been likened to battery acid, but one suspect thought putting it in a can would keep him out of prosecution as a murderer. Fox35-TV reported on August 5 that Nicole Max, 35, was charged with first-degree murder in the death of her 79-year-old roommate, Michael Serrasoli. Serasoli was found beaten and stabbed at his home in Daytona Beach, Florida, on July 1. Officers tracked Mack down to Crystal’s Restaurant around 3:30 the next morning, where she found blood on the side and part of her leg. Her shirt was torn or cut off. As they approached, she dropped the knife and hammer she was carrying. She told officers that she frequently carried such items. Police said that while questioning her roommate, she became “agitated” and demanded her drink. They gave her a can of Diet Mountain Dew, which she applied to her body and hair, hoping to eliminate any evidence of her persona. Unsurprisingly, that stunt didn’t work and her DNA was found in the knife used to kill Serasori. She currently resides in the Volusia County Jail.

TikTokker Michaela Witter joined Day 20 of a series of posts about 100 Solo Dates. This could be activities like reading in the park or buying flowers for yourself. On August 7, while browsing Barnes & Noble in Burbank, Calif., Ms. Witter said her stalker followed her, knelt behind her, and repeatedly harassed her (her and another). I inadvertently took a video when I was smelling a woman). Fox News reported that Witter’s post led to a flood of similar experiences, even from the same stalker.
“Today the same guy crouched behind me and chased me through the marshalls,” one commenter posted.
“The same thing happened at Ralph’s in Burbank,” said another.
