Monkey found in Chambersburg (1955)

From the Racine (WI) Journal-Times (March 30, 1955):
Chambersburg, Pa. (AP) - Twelve-year-old Dennis Summers was puzzled when he found a dead monkey wedged in the branches of a tree. It had died of exposure. The police were mystified too. They had no reports of a missing monkey and a check of residents known to own monkey pets showed that all were safe.

No one could offer an explanation.
Nothing like keeping it short and to the point, I guess, if it does sound like it was written by a second grader.

  1. That is so freaky! Man, I bet the cops that night were shaking their heads, thinking they'd seen it all.
