Dexter Eugene Bingham went from delivering the news to being the news.
Dexter Eugene Bingham used to deliver the news. Today, he became the news.

The 36-year-old man was arrested in his Sauk Rapids home for making bogus phone calls to police about bomb threats, rapes, and murders--all while delivering the St. Cloud Times.

Those rural delivery routes must get lonely and boring in the early hours. Maybe he was imagining some compelling headlines.

In January, the Stearns County Dispatch Center fielded a call about a woman being kidnapped, driven around the county, and raped. Another time, a caller said his wife and kids were in their burning car and he was going to crash it into the Mississippi.The next day, the caller claimed to have shot his wife and dumped her body in a park. Still more calls in February talked about bombs being planted in a police car and the local high school.

Police followed up on all the calls, but never found the people or events described in them.

Then they traced the calls to Bingham.

He was arrested, admitted making the calls, and was thrown in the Stearns County jail. While prosecutors consider possible charges of terroristic threats, maybe he can write the headline over his own story: Bored, lonely newspaper delivery man mistakes himself for murderous bomber.
