As a local news organization, Patch covers stories of all kinds, from heartbreaking tragedies to inspiring tales of community brotherhood. But some stories are just plain weird. Here are some of the stranger headlines from the past seven days.
Wicks Park, which is home to the Commack South Little League, was vandalized Tuesday night, police said, though the writing on the wall briefly confused officials.
Police initially investigated the vandalism as a hate crime after a resident called in the incident, but officials then realized the markings, which included a pentagram, were symbols from the heavy metal band, Slayer.
