Anne Corbitt, "The Tornado Bandit"

Read Anne Corbitt's short story, "The Tornado Bandit." It is issue # 129 of One Story.
It is unusual and I'm not sure how much of it is a fantasy. I kept thinking of Walter Mitty. The main husband and wife are named, Carl and Mitty. There was a chase and a murder and hush money paid, supposedly by the government for the 3 couples whose homes had been invaded not to say anything more about the incident.
