Uhm, Lynn Hickey died last Friday

In honor of Ashton Edwards and Chase Thomason’s engagement, Spencer and I recently collaborated on a post that listed some other random OKC couples we’d like to see tie the knot. One of the duos that I came up with was the guy from The Key and The Ghost of Lynn Hickey. Here’s what I wrote:

Because that would be one hell of an amazing car buying experience.

You see, the Key brands itself as a low-pressure car buying environment where you can not only purchase a 2007 Malibu with 20%-interest, but also read self-help books and beat an old car with a sledge hammer. Lynn Hickey, on the other hand, was the owner of Lynn Hickey Dodge. His car dealership took the phrases “high pressure sales,” “publicity stunts,” and “Oh shit, it’s the IRS!” to new levels in the early 1990s.

My idea to match the two came out of nowhere. I was thinking it would be funny to list the guy from the Key with a random person or thing. For some reason, the Ghost of Lynn Hickey was the first thought that popped in my mind. The only problem, unbeknownst to me at the time, was that Lynn Hickey was still alive. Or at least he was. He passed away on December 14th, four days after we published the article.

Here’s his obituary:

This doctor who was recently murdered posted bizarre videos about police brutality…

Yesterday, Oklahoma City Police reported the 95th homicide of the year. The victim was a 58-year-old physician named Deepak Bhasin.

From KFOR:

Police find the body of a doctor inside his home after receiving reports of an attack.

Officers rushed to the 15000 block of San Nicholas Dr. around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday after a man reported an attack.

When police arrived at the home, they found the body of 58-year-old Deepak Bhasin.

Authorities say trauma on the man’s body is consistent with a homicide.

So far, no arrests have been made in the case.

When I read the story, the victim’s name sounded familiar. I decided to Google his name and then it hit me. He’s the nutty doctor who posted all the weird YouTube videos about police brutality!

Wait….what?

Deepak Basin is a former physician who created a website called Police Brutality Oklahoma City.com. On his website, which I think he built while wearing a tinfoil hat, the doctor went on and on about run-ins with the Oklahoma City Police department. Here was his last update:

I had a court date on August 31st. I was given the option to plead Guilty and be done with all of this that day or, to plead Not Guilty and have another court date set. (October 18th)

I Plead NOT GUILTY. Why you may ask if I could just walk away? Because I know I am not the only one this has happened to and I want people to hear my story and I want JUSTICE for myself and for YOU!

I am a very well educated 59 year old retired Medical Doctor. I was arrested last month for public drunkenness. I was NOT drunk, I was not given a breathalyze or a blood test. I was ARRESTED and put in jail.

How many people has this happened to? How are the police not aware if a person is in need of medical assistance? Someone can be in need of medical help and the police label them as drunk and lock them up–This MUST STOP!

In addition to rants about the police, he also post bizarre reenactments of police brutality. By using the phrase “bizarre reenactments,” I mean Dr. Basin dressed in a skin tight jogging suit while being harassed by tall models dressed acting as police women and bank managers. All the videos are on his still active YouTube page. I posted some of the stranger ones after the jump:

This lady from Tulsa may have the Oklahoma mug shot of the year…

I was looking for a video to lead off this post and stumbled across this one of a woman who has Coulrophobia. It may be the best thing you’ll watch all week.

That’s pretty funny, but also kind of sad. Just like this story about a lady from Tulsa (via News on 6):

A 61-year-old Tulsa woman was arrested after police say she damaged the windshield of a patrol car. Brenda Skinner was initially arrested for public intoxication, according to Tulsa Police.

Officers arrived at the Walgreens parking lot at 7111 South Lewis Avenue just before 1 a.m. Saturday after complaints of a disturbance. They found Skinner in the parking lot, wearing a black dress and no shoes.

The arresting officer said Skinner smelled of alcoholic beverages, was unsteady on her feet and had blood shot eyes.

Skinner was placed in the front seat of the officer’s patrol car where she started kicking the front windshield, shattering the glass, the officer said. She was booked on complaints of public intoxication and damaging city property.

So what does all this have to do with some lady being scared of clowns? Check out Brenda Skinner’s mug shot:

Louis C.K. really wants us to identify his OKC one night stand…

Back in October, we asked the Ogle Mole Network for help in identifying the hot chick that had a one night stand with Louis C.K. in Oklahoma City. Louis mentioned the girl in a stand up act five or six years ago. We brought it up after writing about Louie’s tasteless OKC bombing jokes.

Here’s a snippet:

Ogle Moles, it’s time to grab our magnifying glasses, dust off the deerstalker hats, and get to work finding this alleged beautiful woman! Is she actually good-looking? Does she still live in Oklahoma City? Does she even exist? If she does, you would think that at one point in her life that she would have told a friend that she slept with a now-famous ugly comedian that she met at the Looney Bin or Jokers. And you would think that her friend would eventually tell someone else, who would then tell someone else, who would the tell an Ogle Mole, who would then email us with the information. Right?

Anyway, if you have any details for this case, let us know via the “Contact Us” page on the site. And if you want us to reply to your email, use a real email address. Thanks.

Although we didn’t get any solid leads, it appears that Louis C.K. doesn’t want the case to go cold. He referenced the girl again in a recent interview in Vanity Fair and provided a few additional details about the timing of the encounter:

About the Green Dragon classified ad that’s gone viral in Oklahoma City

If you have a Facebook page and live in Oklahoma City, there’s a good chance you’ve seen the Oklahoman classified ad asking someone to slay the green dragon that’s been seen flying around Northeast OKC.

If you’re one of the 17 people without a Facebook account and think good old Patrick’s losing his mind, I don’t blame you. Here’s the ad to prove my sanity:
