To remember? Slick Suspect smeared the entire motel room in petroleum jelly

Sometimes a story is just so bizarre it deserves to be revisited years later. This is one of those news.

That was almost 20 years ago (18 years old, if you want to be specific) when Binghamton made national news after what can only be called a slippery situation in a motel room in the town of Chenango.

When police entered room 205 of Motel 6 on Upper Front Street, they were stunned by the view. No, there was no gruesome murder scene or drug splatter and drug paraphilia cluttering every surface. What the police found was one that stories are made of.

Motel 6 Manager Mary Jason had called Broome County Sheriffs to report that every surface in Room 205 was covered in petroleum jelly. The TV, the carpet, the bedding, the curtains – everything inside the room was completely covered in oil.

Roger Chamberlain, also called Vaseline Vandal by some, checked himself into Motel 6 with 14 jars of Vaseline, got to work slathering everything on, then checked in without a word to motel staff about what had happened. passed behind the bedroom doors. 205.

When the motel cleaning crew entered the room, they were amazed to see literally everything covered in petroleum jelly. Brian Greene, one of the other managers at Motel 6, told The Connection he estimates it would cost at least $4,000 to properly clean all the petroleum jelly from the room.

When Chamberlin, from Virginia, was found by authorities at a local Econo Lodge, he was “covered in Vaseline from head to toe. Head to toe.When asked why he did such a thing, Chamberlin gave no reason and pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief. A Broome County judge sentenced Chamberlain, 45, to three years probation and also ordered him to pay Motel 6 $3,886 in damages.

This story was so bizarre that the Washington Post even jumped on it, going so far as to call Motel 6 and speak to Mary Jason herself who told the paper: “You know how hotel rooms have mirrors on the walls? Well, there was a butt mark on it in Vaseline.

Why exactly did Chamberlin cover it all up in Vaseline? It’s been 20 years and we’re no closer to understanding because Chamberlin fell silent and gave no reason and Broome County Judge Patrick H. Mathews didn’t press him to a reason.
