There's the syndicated column News of the Weird (http://www.newsoftheweird.com/)

I think he even compiled a few books.

Don't forget the Darwin awards.

Depending on what you're looking for, there is some VERY odd crime news here:

I can't vouch for the site, I just found it via Google!

check out the historicals...missing persons/unsolved murders going back to early 1900s. In one case a child was thought to belong a long missing child and taken from his family, put with the family who'd lost a child several years earlier...descendants did DNA testing fairly recently and learned that the child really was not a family member...so really did belong to the family from whom he was taken.

TruTV (formerly CourtTV)'s Crime Library (http://www.trutv.com/library/crime/)site is helpful.
