  • Police say Paul Potter tossed arms at witnesses.
Paul Ray Potter, 49, of Kirksville has been charged with second-degree homicide and arson in what is definitely Missouri's strangest news story of the year. The Kirksville Daily Express reports that police were called to Potter's apartment complex when a car became engulfed in flames Sunday night. Two apartment units were also on fire.

While officers were investigating, they allegedly saw Potter throw two objects at witnesses. The objects were the dismembered arms of a homicide victim discovered at the scene. Potter was arrested, and, the paper reports, he admitted the crimes to police. He's being held on $1 million bond.
