DN today: Coyote-howling killer, PennDOT vandals, nice busjacker

Lots of crazy crime news in today's DN

DN today: Coyote-howling killer, PennDOT vandals, nice busjacker


James Stokes, accused of stabbing a mother of three to death, liked to dress up as Superman and Tarzan, howl like a coyote at night and ogle elementary-school kids, neighbors say.

Camden man, angry that his girlfriend wouldn't get an abortion, raped her in front of three kids, cops say.

Wonder how this will affect our taxes: Two teens and a 10-year-old rampage through PennDOT facility, causing $200,000 in damage.

Imposter who regularly commandeers buses and subways frustrates NYC public transit bigwigs but is hailed as friendly and helpful by commuters.

Should have gotten therapy instead: California doctor tries breaking into her ex-lover's house but instead gets trapped and dies in his chimney.
