... just when you thought America couldn't get any more bizarre and the people living here couldn't be any weirder ...

It looked like a simple domestic murder. Then police learned about the alien reptile cult.

The call lit up the 911 dispatch center in the early morning hours of July 15, 2017.

“My boyfriend had a gun,” Barbara Rogers told the operator from a home in Coolbaugh Township, Pa., about 110 miles north of Philadelphia, WNEP would later report. “He told me to hold it here and press the trigger. Oh my God, he’s dead!”

When police arrived at the tan double-wide trailer, inside they found 32-year-old Steven Mineo dead from a close-range .45 bullet wound in his forehead. Rogers was arrested and charged with her boyfriend’s murder.

But behind what first appeared to be a simple domestic killing, investigators soon found a bizarre backstory involving an extraterrestrial cult that had swallowed up both Rogers and Mineo.

According to the Pocono Record, as Rogers’s first-degree murder trial began in March, she claimed in court the couple had gotten into a disagreement with the leader of the cult, who preaches a heady stew of alien conspiracy theories, apocalyptic biblical interpretation and warnings about “reptilian” extraterrestrials living secretly as humans. Rogers claimed a distraught Mineo had placed the gun in her hands and pulled the trigger. She said she did not know the gun was loaded.

In the end, the jury split the difference, finding Rogers guilty of the lesser charge of third-degree murder. On Monday morning, a judge sentenced the 44-year-old to 15 to 40 years in prison, BRCTV 13 reported.

The sentencing did not sit well with victim’s family.

“To me, it’s amazing that somebody could put a gun to somebody’s head, blow their brains out essentially, and a jury finds them guilty of third-degree murder and not first?” Jackie Mineo, the victim’s aunt, told BRCTV 13 on Monday. “She got a break, she got a big break today.”

Rogers and Mineo were reportedly both followers of Sherry Shriner, who on her website calls herself a “Servant, Prophet, Ambassador, Daughter, and Messenger of the Most High God.” According to NJ.com, Shriner believes a “New World Order” is threatening humanity, an evil conspiracy hatched by aliens and other evil beings.

In an interview with NJ.com in July 2017, Shriner denied being a cult leader.

“I don’t run a cult,” she said. “You can turn on my video or turn it off. You can turn on my podcast or turn it off. I don’t have a list or a membership rule.”

Mineo reportedly began following Shriner through her online writings and videos in the early 2000s. But his relationship with Rogers eventually put him at odds with the teachings. Shriner told NJ.com she believed Rogers was a “Vampire Witch Reptilian Super Soldier."

The split seems to have started when Rogers wrote Facebook posts talking about her cravings for red meat and preference for steak tartare. Shriner believed red meat was a sign that a person was actually reptilian.

“There’s only certain types of people who crave the raw meat, because they crave the blood. Those with the vampire demon in them,” Shriner said in a YouTube video, according to NJ.com. Shriner told the newspaper she then warned Mineo his girlfriend was possessed.

“When the demon manifested in her, if it was the demon or a lizard, if she had both, a human’s no match for that kind of supernatural strength,” Shriner told NJ.com. “The one thing I did know: she was no good."

After Mineo’s death, Rogers reportedly told investigators — and later claimed at her murder trial — that Mineo began to believe that Shriner was in fact a “reptilian” masquerading as a human being.

On the night of his death, Rogers and Mineo had been drinking at a bar until 2 a.m., according to WNEP. Rogers said the couple had a few drinks, but were not intoxicated.

Back at home, Mineo suggested they head out to the dark woods and fire his gun. Later back in the bedroom, still distraught about his falling out with Shriner and her followers, he pressed the gun to his head, grabbed her hands, and forced her to pull the trigger, she claimed.

May I be of assistance?? Pick your favorite description:
A few cards short of a deck
Not the sharpest tool in the shed
As smart as bait
The light's on but......
A few beers short of a six-pack
One fry short of a happy meal
Elevator doesn't go to the top floor
Missing a few buttons on her remote
Dumber than a box of hair
A few peas short of a casserole
Doesn't have all his corn flakes in one box
The wheel's spinning, but the hamster's dead
Couple of Fruit Loops shy of a full bowl
One taco short of a combination plate
A few feathers short of a whole duck
All foam, no beer
The cheese slid off her cracker

I don't find Trump's election bizarre at all. I am a progressive and pretty much called it on Super Tuesday. He was doing too much damage to the establishment candidates to not win.

The only thing I find less bizarre is a story of a murder for any reason in a small Pennsylvania town. That place is just bat poop crazy.

Strange, yes. But stranger than Trump as President? I think not.
