The theme of this morning's blog posts: Ohio is really f&*king strange, and without a doubt, winning the "Ohio or Florida?" game this week.
Our first stop: Sandusky.
Police there say they're on the lookout for 33 year-old Scott Sims. Why the interest? It seems he pinned his girlfriend down and attacked her with a hatchet. She managed to get away and contact police before Sims could finish the job, thankfully.
But Sims isn't your everyday soulless derelict with a penchant for violence. He's very concerned about his soul, it turns out, and we know that because before he first swung the hatchet down on 49-year-old Brandy Wadding, he asked God for "his blessing to strike her," according to the Sandusky Register.
No word yet on what God's answer was. Or if Sims heard a squirrel whisper, "It's okay, buddy, I approve," and took that to be a sign that his vengeance was divinely approved.
When he's found, Sims will face charges of aggravated menacing, felonious assault, felony domestic violence and unlawful restraint.
