NOT GIVEN

A SINGLE GUY WAS GOING TO A NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTY. HE WAS DRIVING
BY MOUNT OLIVET CEMETERY WHEN HE SAW A GIRL STANDING NEAR THE
CEMETERY GATE IN A PARTY DRESS. HE STOPPED AND SHE TOLD HIM THAT
SHE WANTED TO GO TO A NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTY; SO HE TOOK HER. AT
THE PARTY HE HAPPENED TO SPILL WINE ON HER DRESS. WHEN IT WAS
TIME TO GO HE COULDN'T FIND HER. BEFOREHAND SHE HAD GIVEN HIM HER
ADDRESS AND TELEPHONE NUMBER, SO HE WENT TO HER PARENTS' HOME.
WHEN HE GOT THERE HE WAS TOLD THAT THEIR DAUGHTER HAD DIED TEN
YEARS AGO ON THE WAY TO A PARTY. THEY WENT TO THE CEMETERY, HAD
THE BODY EXHUMED, AND FOUND THAT THE DRESS HAD FRESH WINE STAINS
ON IT.

Submitter comment: MR. BOZICH HAD HEARD THIS SEVERAL TIMES, CIRCUMSTANCES UNKNOWN.
