The Bizarre Plot to Murder Joss Stone

This is one of the scariest things you're going to read about a celebrity:
Two men armed with swords have been arrested in connection with an alleged plot to rob and kill British singer Joss Stone, according to reports.
Citing sources, Sky News said the suspects were found with rope and a body bag when they were stopped near her home in Cullompton, England, on Monday morning.
Devon and Cornwall Police Detective Inspector Steve Parker said: "The two men in custody had in their possession information relating to an individual in the Cullompton area and items which lead us to suspect that they may have intended to commit a criminal offence."
Sky News reported that the suspects — aged 33 and 30 — were carrying maps and aerial photos of Stone's property.
This comes from the British news media, so excuse the spellings and whatnot. Doesn't that just sound like the craziest thing ever? They're caught with swords and a map of how to get to her home and I just can't even being to imagine how frightening this must be for this young woman.

The next time you see a celebrity with a security person, or with a huge fence around their property, or using a private jet in order to avoid the general public, think of this story and then try not to judge them.

How utterly, utterly awful.
