John Lennon arrested for murder in Brazil and other letters of note

by | 6th, February 2013

TO Belo Horizonte, Brazil, where police have arrested three suspected criminals named John Lennon. It’s testament of Lennon’s enduring popularity that John Lennon Ribeiro Siqueira, arrested for plotting to rob a lottery agency, is just 19.
Suspected burglar John Lennon Fonseca Ferreira is 22. Suspected five-time killer John Lenon Camargos Gomes is also 22.

The youngest John Lennon is John Lennon Sebastiao da Silva, 18, whose body was found in the back seat of a car.

Police suspect foul play, and are rounding up all the city’s Marc Chapmans, he being the killer who shot John Lennon dead in New York. They might also round up the Yoko Onos and lock them in a sealed bunker, just in case.

So popular is Lennon, The Beatles chief cynic, that you can buy a book of his letters. Not letter to heads of state. Letters like this:

Letter 271: Domestic list, 23 May 1980
1. Nail polish remover.
2. Cat food: (back to variations) including ‘Tender Vittles’
3. Corn on cob
4. Spinach
