In May, Idaho police discovered the message "Destiny, Prom?" painted in large pink and blue letters on the side of the Black Cliffs, a popular rock-climbing spot, east of Boise. The invitation has been painted over, but the Romeo behind it has thus far eluded police. And so they took a unique tactic in a bid to close the case: Sheriff's deputies started interviewing girls named "Destiny."

It hasn't led anywhere yet, says Ada County Sheriff's Office spokesman Patrick Orr. "Our deputies interviewed over a dozen girls named 'Destiny' and checked out other leads but weren't able to track it down," he tells KBOI. Police are hopeful that the dawn of a new school year will generate some fresh leads. Should they find their man, he could face a misdemeanor charge of injury by graffiti, which is punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of $1,000. (More weird crimes stories.)
