At the Dulles International Airport in Texas, Jack Korper surrendered to authorities when a security detection device went off allerting guards to a 12 inch tire iron that Korper was trying to conceal while boarding a plane to Mexico. The tire iron was embedded through the head of Randolf Korper, Jack's Siamese Twin brother!
Korper, who already had garnered notice as looking a little odd, had been carrying an upside-down flower pot on his shoulder. Only it was not his shoulder, and the muddied earth packed into the pot was actually used to gruesomely offer a make-shift mobile burial plot for Randolf, Jack's attached-since-birth twin brother.
Details about this horrible crime came out at Korper's arraignment when the suspect waived his right to a trial and pleaded guilty of his brother's murder, while in the most usual murder trial, the victim "looked on" as justice was done. The apparent motive for the murder was apparently that Randolf talked too much, and this had been a mentally torturous problem for Jack ever since he was born.
The two brothers, Siamese Twins as reported, were two distinct individual heads, attached to the same body. Doctors had determined it was infeasible to detach them when they were born, and had considered it immoral to sacrafice one brother for the other.
The defendant claimed life had become unbearable: Radolf was always looking on when Jack was voting. The two shared one stomach but one brother loved Mexican food, while the other said the taste of spicy foods always made him ill. Cell phone privacy issues drove both brothers mad to the extreme, especially given that Jack had been a criminal attorney and received many client calls, while Randolf was always in the way and could not allow Jack to provide true client confidentiality. To make matters worse, Randolf was a photographic journalist and Jack was sick of holding the flash for extra feature shots while he had his own professional work to do. Both brothers were of different sexual orientations, and Randolf wanted to pursue being legally allowed to marry his partner, while Jack said his relationships suffered because women he dated did not want to share him with at least 2 other unavoidable partners. This made Jack's marriage prospects look etremely limited and frustrated him to no end, since he said "he felt so extremely alone, yet he could never actually be alone."
The brothers had only two arms between the both of them and had learned from doctors that having additional arms transplanted was not feasible given the state of current medical advances. Additionally, while cloning research has not advanced to the required level to do a transplant of this order, organ donors do not normally specify that their arms or unusual body parts are donatable, and clothing manufacturers would not be able to provide a broad enough variety of clothing appropriate to each of their professions. As it was, the two had difficulty having clothes custom tailored with either two collars, or a forty-eight inch neck size.
Jack Korper testified that he had finally had enough. With his legal knowledge he was aware that he could dodge a muder charge for killing his brother if he too disappeared at the same time that Randolf did. This would basically contain all the damaging evidence. There would no indicators that Jack's brother had died, as long as there was nothing to be found. Meanwhile, Jack said he planned to have "his growth" sawed off by a native witch doctor in a Central-American jungle enclave, where the local medacine man also boasted credentials in exorcisms.
Now he will have to wait for his trial to learn the fate of his brother and pay the penalty for his crime. The flower pot has been replaced with a jar of fermaldahyde that Jack wears with an over-the-shoulder strap so that he can preserve state's evidence. The jar is covered and while previously covered with family pictures at the time of Jack's arrest, now simply has a red label "Exibit A."
We are bound to hear some unique testimony as Texas Superior Court Judge Cindy Lender decides whether to have the victim surgically removed as the defendant had planned, or if a decomposing accelerator will be used, so that Randolf falls off, only a bit ahead of the natural process. The victim's family only hopes that they will have something for a memorial service, and the mother is saving the flower pot for its possible use in the burial.
