Wendy's Severed Chili Finger Couple Sentenced

 

The two who slipped a severed finger into a bowl of Wendy's chili were sentenced to at least nine years. They wanted to scam the company for money by claiming they found the finger in the chili. Anna Ayala claimed she bit the finger.

Her husband Jaime Plascencia obtained the finger from a co-worker, who lost it on the job, and was sentenced to more than 12 years. They pled guilty to insurance fraud and attempted grand theft.

Though Anna described the incident on the TV news it turns out she never had the finger in her mouth. The hoax was uncovered since the finger was uncooked, no Wendy employees lost fingers and no chili suppliers reported finger losses at their plants.

  stupidity...  
 
When the story first came out I thought that unless the finger was lost in a bizarre packaging incident, there was no way for an intact finger to be found in a bowl of chili. For it to have been lost into the processing procedure would mean it owuld have been cooked to the point of falling apart. All you'd have left would be the bone and nail.

  That's just nasty, Deodolito.  
 
What are you, Hannibal Lechter? But, good point. Culinary forensics....

The finger belongs (belonged?) to some construction worker who lost it in an industrial accident and he sold it to the husband for $100.

Ultimate irony: making them work in the kitchen at the prison.
