This is William C. Todd. He may have just shattered the record for the craziest and fastest crime spree in American history: ten felonies in just nine hours. The list of crimes is so insane and absurd that it seems impossible:
Stopping in Nashville, Tennessee for a nine-hour Greyhound bus layover, he broke into The Slaughterhouse—an old haunted house in the downtown area.
There, he stole a Taser, a revolver, and shotgun. And a t-shirt.
Then he burned down the building.
Then he went to a bar and held four patrons at gunpoint, robbing them. He tased one and pistol-whipped another.
He then carjacked a taxi.
He stopped at the Walmart in Nolensville and used the stolen credit cards to buy "$199 worth of items," according to Nashville policeman Sgt. Tony Blackburn.
He then went to a place called Hotel Indigo at 6:00am, where he proceeded to break into a law office in the building, trashing the premises and defecating on a desk—smearing his excrement on the framed law degrees hanging on the walls.
After that he robbed several hotel guests at gunpoint. He knocked on their doors pretending he was a housekeeper, and, according to witnesses, was crying while doing so.
Before leaving the hotel, he shaved his head—the photo above happened after his crime spree—and then crashed his stolen car in a parking lot. This happened around 9:00am, according to the police.
At 11:30am, he allegedly committed the last of the crimes: Leaving the crashed car, he stole another taxi—at knifepoint.
He finally was caught hiding, almost completely submerged in a water-cooling vat in Opryland. The police got him after the fire department came to take him out using a ladder truck.
According to Sgt. Blackburn, "he was just on a terror. I've never seen anything like this before."
