Four Brazilian Men Named John Lennon Linked To Crime Spree

Police in the Brazilian city of Belo Horizonte claim to have arrested three men with the name John Lennon in a strange crime wave striking the city. Another man, sharing the name of the late Beatles fronter, was found dead.

Cops in the city believe the dead Lennon may be a murder victim. So far there is no explanation for the sudden spike in criminals with the famous name. Authorities suspect that it could be simply a coincidence based on the band's popularity.

The first Lennon was arrested for attempting to rob a lottery shop, while the second was arrested for breaking into a house. The third was arrested for attempted murder and they believe the slain Lennon was the victim of a revenge killing.
