Idiot + Shotgun = One Less Idiot
UT: Man Dies Trying To Disprove CSI Show Plot Twist
PROVO (AP) -- A Provo man fatally shot himself while trying to disprove a popular TV crime show, according to authorities.
Earl F. Ellwanger Jr., 55, accidentally shot himself in the stomach and died Thursday at a hospital.
Ellwanger saw a television episode of "Forensic Files" in which investigators were trying to show that a woman couldn't have shot herself in the stomach.
"He decided to show that the program was incorrect and didn't realize the shotgun was loaded," said Fall River County Sheriff Jeff Tarrell.
