Strange in 78250: The Case of the Missing Pants...

If you are a fan of detective shows like CSI or Investigative Reports, you know that we have clearly stumbled upon a crime in The Five Oh, and other than taking a picture in case they need some evidence, I'm not that good of a sleuth to figure out just what happened.We were parked in the HEB grabbing a few essentials when my wife spotted what appeared to be a perfectly good pair of tennis shoes sitting atop a trash can, and a pair of designer jeans, turned inside-out, laying beside the same trash container.

Do you suppose some homeless guy traded up? I mean, could it be that there was a box containing some new slacks and some comfortable boots there before, and the person simply traded?

What if the previous owner was out streaking around the parking lot and we stumbled upon the place where he was holding his clothes? But then again, in this heat, if you streak you should wear shoes (and plenty of sunscreen).

I did sniff from a distance and did not note any smell associated with an "accidental discharge" that may have caused someone to simply leave their jeans, but even so, why would you leave your shoes behind, just because your crapped your pants?
Maybe the guy robbed a bank and was trying to get rid of the clothes in case there was a line-up and he didn't want the bank tellers to identify him. I've never been in a line-up, but I'm guessing that the guy without pants is going to stand out more than a guy in jeans and white tennis shoes. Just a thought.

Geeze. It just occured to me that I never bothered to look inside the trash can. I hope there isn't some body parts in there. It'd be just my luck to go out of my way to take a picture of a crime scene and miss the most important details.

If you have a theory or actually know why someobody left their pants and shoes at HEB, use the comments button below. Otherwise, this is just plain strange.

I was going to say perhaps "accidental discharge" ran onto the shoes, but there doesn't seem to e visual evidence of that. So, I have NO idea!
