Dancing Transsexual and Belleville Tire-Slasher One and the Same

Last week anonymous evildoers slashed 33 tires in various parking lots around Belleville. Yesterday Belleville police apprehended a suspect in two of the slashings -- and it was someone very well known to Bellevillians.

David L. Stone, who also goes by Susan L. Stone, has become a regular presence at local festivals where she dons a pink tutu and a series of feather boas and performs as "The Dance of Life Dancer."

​It's unclear what made Stone, whose mission, according to her YouTube channel, is "to share the beauty of life with everyone", decide to turn to a life of crime. The tire-slashings with which she is charged occurred on Sunday at the Green Mount Commons shopping center, one in front of WalMart, the other in front of Lowe's.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that Stone, who lives in Lenzburg, has multiple convictions in St. Clair County for retail theft, a couple for telephone harassment, and one for disorderly conduct. She is being held in the Belleville jail in lieu of $125,000 bail.

Belleville police are still investigating the remaining 31 slashings and are encouraging those who parked a car anywhere along Carlyle Avenue on Sunday to check their tires.
