Fans to dedicate Elvis memorial at former arena site. Market Square Arena, the site of Elvis's last concert, on August 16, 1977, was imploded in July 2001 to make room for a parking lot. Appropriate for a celebration of the King, a time capsule of Elvis memorabilia was found to be too wide for its repository and sent to a welder for alterations.
Convicted forger taunts court after release. A forger who was among more than 2,000 suspects released from the overcrowded Marion County Jail sent a four-page letter to the judge who had placed her on probation, boasting that she had already fled the state and was likely to have resumed her identity theft and credit card fraud activities by the time the jurist read the letter. She was being held on felony charges of forgery and theft; if convicted, her probation violation would have tacked on more than a year of extra jail time. But as a nonviolent offender, she was released without having to pay bond, which totaled $350,000, when the jail became overcrowded. Her victim learned of the forger's release when she too received a taunting letter.
