There’s two interesting death stories in today’s paper that you may, in a macabre way, find interesting:
A man convicted of strangling an elderly woman was executed in Ohio on Tuesday, eight days after he tried to commit suicide by taking an overdose. The execution of Lawrence Reynolds, 43, had been postponed a week after he was found unconscious in his death-row cell and hospitalized to recover from an overdose of medication.
They actually took the time and resources to nurse this sap back to health so they could kill him. Let me see hands for those that think this is completely and totally nuts.
A Georgia man was running and listening to his iPod on the beach on Hilton Head Island when he was struck and killed by an airplane that made an emergency landing Monday near Palmetto Dunes, the Beaufort County coroner’s office said Tuesday. The victim was identified as Robert Gary Jones, 38, of Woodstock, Ga. and authorities say he probably did not see or hear the plane coming down because it had no power.
Which proves once again that you never know how and you never know when so live every day like it’s your last. And don’t try to kill yourself on death row by taking pills or jog on the beach with your iPod in case a small, powerless plane makes an emergency landing on your head.
