Dead Body Found At Big Bird's House

Okay, Big Bird seems in the clear. Seems.

A Plainfield man was charged Wednesday with capital felony, murder and felony murder in the death of a Woodstock jogger whose battered body was found on property owned by the performer who plays Big Bird on "Sesame Street."

Under the capital felony count, prosecutors can seek the death penalty or life in prison without parole for Scott Deojay, 36.

Deojay told police that he struck Judith Nilan, a 44-year-old middle school social worker, with his car by accident on Dec. 12 in Woodstock and panicked, according to an affidavit supporting the new charges against Deojay. State police said Deojay hid the body in an outbuilding on Caroll Spinney's property, where he worked as a caretaker.

Authorities arrested Deojay on a kidnapping charge on Dec. 13 in connection with Nilan's death and said Spinney was not involved.

I don't know. I'm still suspicious.

As Martin Riggs said, "Be on the lookout for a big yellow bird, speaks in a funny voice."
