In January 1966, Philadelphia man Calvin Jones escaped charges of murder thanks to a really bizarre coincidence. Jones had previously been charged with the murder of 23-year-old Sarah Tolbert, his then-girlfriend. Apparently, he’d beaten her to death with a rubber hose.
When the young woman was autopsied, however, it was discovered that Jones’s beating hadn’t been what killed her. Instead, the coroner discovered that Tolbert had died of sickle-cell anemia at the exact moment she was being battered. As a result, Jones received the lesser charge of assault and battery.
