Maybe crime does pay...

COLUMBUS, Ohio - An organization that operates a crime tip line received a $31,000 donation from a man in a prison.
Michael Spillan, 39, is serving a four-year sentence at the Noble Correctional Institution for planting a bomb on his front porch and trying to frame his son-in-law, as well as for unrelated convictions for theft and forgery.
He and his wife, Melissa, donated $31,000 to Central Ohio Crime Stoppers on Thursday after two tipsters complained they had not received their reward in the case of an Ohio State University student whose body was found near a reservoir weeks after she disappeared in August.
The suburban Gahanna couple made the donation because they "feel strongly about the importance of Crime Stoppers and people who commit crimes being punished," Melissa Spillan said.
