Perhaps the hiccups made her do it: We’ll never know. In 2007, Jennifer Mee made headlines when she suffered from uncontrollable hiccups. Over the weekend, Mee was arrested and charged with first degree murder. Mee has been charged in the shooting death of 22-year-old Shannon Griffin. According to police, Mee lured Griffin to a seedy part of St. Petersburg, FL (of course, Florida), where Lamont Newton and Laron Raiford robbed and killed him. She’s currently being held without bail in Pinellas County Jail.
Three years ago, Mee, now 19, suffered from an extended bout of hiccups — sometimes hiccuping more than 50 times in an minute. Her hiccups were cured after several weeks and in the media frenzy over her strange disorder she reconnected with her biological father. [MSNBC]
