I’d mentioned in another thread about a letter to Skeptical Inquirer regarding an Urban Legend with basis in truth, from the cop investigating it.
In one of his books, Jan Brunvand had reported an UL about a man shooting an ATM. A reference to Mr. Brunvand in Skeptical Inquirer caused James S. Holley of the Largo FL Police Dept. to report the probable genesis of that UL.
Officer Holley investigated an incident at the former Freedom Savings Bank in Keene Plaza, in Largo.
Officer Holley goes on to describe his investigation and the outcome of the case.
