Pittsburgh Comic-Con Organizer Arrested for Murder


side_comicon.jpgIn what has to be the most bizarre story I’ve seen in the last couple of years, Michael Ralph George, owner of a Comics World and the organizer of the Pittsburgh Comic-Con has been arrested for the 1990 murder of his then-wife Barbara George.

The 32-year-old’s body was found by customers in the back of the couple’s Michigan store – also Comics World – and $30,000 worth of comic books were taken, according to The Macomb Daily.

She died of a single shot to the head from a .38-caliber gun.

Barbara George was killed after closing the store to prepare a surprise birthday party for husband, then 30, the report said.

George was arrested without incident, and sent to the county jail without a bond. He is expected to be taken to Michigan to stand trail for homicide.

Bizarre – no really – bizarre.
