You may remember Anna Ayala, the litigious dingbat who claimed to have found a finger in her bowl of Wendy’s chili.
Ayala, 39, is a Las Vegas resident who was visiting relatives in San Jose when she reported biting into the finger March 22, according to press reports. Her claim set police and Wendy’s, the No. 3 U.S. hamburger chain, on a monthlong pursuit of how the 1 1/2-inch segment of a well-manicured finger got into an order of beef chili.
There are no other suspects in the case, Muyo said. Telephone calls to the home of an Anna Ayala in Las Vegas went unanswered. A police spokesman in Las Vegas had no information on whether Ayala has a lawyer representing her.
The San Jose police will hold a press conference at 1 p.m. California time. Ayala will be transferred at some point from Las Vegas to San Jose, Muyo said.
More details to follow, it appears. Her delightful mugshot from the Smoking Gun:
From the You Cannot Make This Shit Up Department: Last week, another Nevada resident said the finger was hers – she recognized it on television!
The case took another bizarre twist last week, when a woman who keeps wild animals called police saying the finger was hers and that it had been ripped off in a leopard attack.
Sandy Allman, 59, who also lives near Las Vegas, said she recognised her finger on television.
My mama always told me, don’t keep leopards or you’ll be watching your fingers on TV one day.
