Owner of 8 Oz. Burger Bar Investigated in Prenatal Homicide

Categories: Food News
File this one in the WTF column: The co-owner of Miami Beach's 8 Oz. Burger Bar, Joshua Woodward, was taken into custody Sunday by Los Angeles police in connection with the death of a 13-week-old fetus.

Although Woodward has not been formally charged, police are investigating the possibility that he caused his girlfriend to have a miscarriage by "placing an unspecified powder in the vaginal area of his girlfriend." Police said Woodward is believed to be the baby's biological father.

The restaurateur currently operates 8 Oz. Burger Bars in Miami and Los Angeles in a partnership with American chef Govind Armstrong. Clean Plate Charlie will keep you updated as this story develops.

And now for something wholly inappropriate.
