... would be caught dead:

When law enforcement agents entered a halfway house on the South Side last year, a man wearing a bathrobe stood up and began screaming, "I'm a murderer! I'm a murderer!"

This strange boast was prompted by his unwillingness to be mistaken for the convicted sex offenders who also lived in the home, said Cara Smith, policy director for the Illinois attorney general's office. The agents were doing a compliance check to make sure the sex offenders had provided valid addresses.

Former Springfield (MA) Bishop Thomas Dupre was unavailable for comment.
