Police: Mom Possibly Killed Over Yahtzee

Posted: 8:14 am MDT July 13, 2011

Police in Minnesota say a mother's desire to play Yahtzee with her three sons may have led to her death.

Tamara Lee Mason's decomposing remains were found Thursday buried in the back yard of her home in Alberta, a town of about 130 people in far western Minnesota, the Star Tribune reported.

Her youngest son, Jacob Cobb, 17, is charged with two counts of second-degree murder in her death. The other two sons, Dylan Clemens, 25; and Andrew Cobb, 18; are charged with accessory after the fact to murder and remain in custody.

Jacob Cobb is accused of strangling his mother on the living room floor, telling his brothers he "didn't know if he could take it anymore and that he wanted to kill their mother" after they had argued with their mother about playing Yahtzee, the criminal complaint stated.

Then he or Andrew Cobb put a plastic bag over her head and tightened a belt around her neck. Clemens allegedly drove her body west to South Dakota, then east to Glenwood, Minn., before storing the corpse in a garbage can in a shed for months until the ground thawed enough for the two elder brothers to bury it, according to the complaint.

"It is very strange," Stevens County Sheriff Randy Willis told the Star Tribune. "She wanted to play Yahtzee and they didn't. That seemed to be, in their minds, what expedited her sudden demise."

Wow.
To have one crazy son that might do something like this, maybe I can understand the possibilities of this happening .... but what are the odds of having three "crazy" sons that would all conspire to murder someone (yet alone, your own mother) ?
Sad.
