I have no clue what you're talking about. Every weird crime always comes out of Florida!

I would say strange crimes always seem to happen in Ohio,with Florida being a close second.

I've been watching a lot of those true crime shows lately, and have yet to see one in Oregon. Washington's had a few ... but it's certainly nowhere near some other states.

I think there's that reputation because there have been serial killers ... but I think it's more because of the popularity of Ann Rule, as a true crime writer. Because she lives in Washington, she writes about cases in the PNW.

I'm in law school and my professors constantly joke about Washington and Oregon because many strange, bizarre cases originate from those states. It's a running joke in the legal field, something to the effect of: "you can always count on someone in the Pacific Northwest to end up in court for some crazy reason." Not to say there's a lot of crime because there's not... But people here in the outlying cities are possibly just strange and lawyer-happy.

Although you tend to hear of strange crimes occurring in Washington and Oregon more frequently than in other states with comparable or even larger populations, Florida runs the gamut of strange and unusual crimes in the U.S. Also, people in Florida tend to be much more bizarre than people in the Pacific Northwest, generally speaking. At least the people of the Pacific Northwest maintain a semblance of normalcy in daily interactions.
