THE STRANGE TALE OF ELVIS BUFORD

From the Chicago Tribune: "Elvis Buford was halfway through apologizing to the family of the man he killed and dismembered four years ago when the victim's brother sprinted from a courtroom bench Monday and tried to attack him." According to the Tribune, Buford was sentenced to 22 years in prison after he admitted to beating Rafael Rush to death with a sledgehammer. Buford then cut the body into pieces and disposed of the parts at various locations between Chicago and Memphis. The judge sentenced the victim's brother to six months for his "attack on the court," but Buford would have none of that. "If you could find it in your heart to let that young man go home to his mother, I would be eternally grateful," Buford said to the judge, who, moved by the murderer's "Elvis"-nature, said he would take the request under consideration.
