LAWRENCE, Kan. — A Lawrence man woke up early Sunday morning to a man standing in his bedroom doorway with a hatchet. That’s the story FOX 4 originally went to Lawrence to cover on Monday.
Turns out, the case just kept getting stranger. The University of Kansas Law School student was not the guy to mess with.
“Oh yeah, I’m a Marine,” he said.
But Sunday morning he woke up to a frightening surprise, a man with a flashlight and a hatchet.
“Rubber handle and a steel blade,” he described.
The two exchanged words and the guy ran off. As we drove through the neighborhood where it happened, we found Hilary Edwards. Late Sunday afternoon, Hilary saw a hatchet resting against the tree in her yard.
“Just happened to see the axe by the tree, I had no idea what it was or what it’s for. I called my husband, I said, ‘Is that your axe?’” Edwards explained.
