Suspect Fingers Himself

Finger found at suspected arson: Suspected arsonist caught after fingertip found at crime scene, police say - "Then, while sifting through evidence, officers got a tip — literally. They found a piece of a latex glove with the tip of a finger inside.

Police said they found their suspect at a local hospital. They matched the tip to 24-year-old Ismael Ortiz, who detectives said quickly confessed.

But how did the suspect clip his tip? Detective Jessica Edens explained: Trying to flee after setting the fire, 'he slammed his finger in the door,' Edens said, 'and it cut the tip of his finger off.'"
