Timothy Carroll retired at age 33. He claimed he was “totally and permanently” disabled by the trauma of seeing dead bodies while working as a sheriff’s officer in Morris County, New Jersey. “I suffer from crime scene flashbacks and hallucinations due to all the years I served as a crime scene detective,” stated Carroll in his disability application.
But the real shock, reports Mark Lagerkvist, is Carroll then started a business that cleans up gory crime scenes. And the state continues to pay him a disability pension for life, a sum that could total $1 million or more.
