Read this story earlier today, it's slightly barbaric but I had a smile on my face reading it. Here's a taste...
'The body of the headless man that was discovered outside a judge’s home has been identified as a that of a pedophile who walked free from a recent bail hearing.
William Smith, 28 from Dallas, Texas was discovered in the early hours of Tuesday morning, decapitated and left outside the front door of a judge who had granted him bail in August.
Smith had been arrested last month following complaints from his ex-girlfriend that he had raped her 8-year-old daughter.
Following his arrest, he was charged with two counts related to child pornography and one count of child molestation.
After being charged, Smith was held on a $30,000 bail which he was able to pay and walked free from the court.The judge granted bail after ruling that Smith didn’t pose a threat to the local community.'

Initially published in 20th September and many other websites like yournewswire.com also published the content, thus making the news more effective and viral in content.
Flaw in the image: The image used in the post is from the one used in June 12, 2017, of A Mississippi Man’s Severed Head Was Found A Mile Away From A Headless Burned Body. There was no mention of the image from where it was used.
In June, 2017 a group of children’s discovered a black man’s severed head in their Jackson, Miss., neighborhood. When authorities were called to the scene, a headless burned body was later found in the woods at 4PM about a mile away on Green Avenue.
This raises a question on the present news as presented by the site neonnettles, which leads us to conclude it is fake and cannot be trusted. The claim by the neonnettles is vague and fabricated and hence fake.
