Real Crimes

I think Found is a literary garage sale and the world is the garage! This was found as I was walking home from the movies. Was it written by a driver that was nabbed by traffic cops? Maybe the person thought the Denny’s employees should be fighting crime rather than serving eggs?

Creepy Like That

Last week, as I was driving home from work, I noticed a white bag under my windshield wiper blade. I get close to my house and have to wait at the train crossing. I check inside the bag and find this note and a snack bag of chocolate covered Door County cherry raisins, and a … Continued

Found in the mail at the Ranger Station where I work.

A stalking victim? Funny thing … Continued
