    Patsy Long Died From Gunshot Wound To Chest

    POSTED: 9:19 am CDT March 25, 2008
    UPDATED: 12:04 pm CDT March 25, 2008

    SEDALIA, Mo. -- Officials are trying to determine whether to file charges against a man who fatally shot his wife while trying to install a satellite television system in their home.

    Patsy D. Long, 34, of Deep Water, was pronounced dead early Saturday evening after being shot in the chest with a .22-caliber handgun.

    Pasty Long was standing outside the residence, helping her husband with the installation of a satellite television system. The couple's children were also outside.

    According to sheriff's department spokesman Maj. Robert Hills, Ronald Long fired a shot from the inside of their home after several unsuccessful efforts to punch a hole through the exterior wall using other means.

    Ronald Long told authorities that he fired a second shot, then called out his wife's name and the names of their two children. When he got no reply, he ran outside and found his wounded wife.

    Pasty Long was hit by the second of two shots fired by Ronald Long, the Henry County Sheriff's Department said.

    Hills said a person involved in such a case normally would be charged with manslaughter, but that was up to the prosecutor.

    "Once we complete a diagram of the incident, we will be submitting everything to the prosecuting attorney and let him decide if he wants to press criminal charges," Hills said.

    Hills described the family as being very "distraught."

    Henry County Coroner Scott Largent declined to release details about Patsy Long's death until the Sheriff's Department completes its investigation.

    Let's see.....you fire a gun without regard for where the bullet is going to end up and you kill someone as a result. Maybe it's just me, but that sure sounds like it warrants charges!

    You've got to feel for the kids. Their life just changed forever.....

    I was in this guys shoes two years ago and to penetrate the wall fully I went to my local Ace hardware and bought a relatively spendy ($25) extra long and wide diameter drill bit that was designed for just this type of usage. I've used it only once that one time.
    Even if his .22 trick were to work I don't see how he thought beyond penetrating the wall that he was going to have a success. The size of sat tv coax cable is closer to .45 ACP than tiny .22.

    Anyway yet another event and persons to be added to the Brady gun victim database. The husband will be listed as a gun murder, the wife as a gun crime victim, and the incident as another gun murder number. All of this will be used as justification against we gun owners at large as being dangerous to ourselves and those who live with us in our homes and that owning guns within ones home increases your chances of being injured by <fill in the blank number>, and is of great danger to children too.

    This case and guy is a Brady group poster child.
    I bet if one had asked him a day before his cable install effort how he felt about the Brady group and/or efforts to remove firearms from homes under the guise of 'consumer and public safety' he'd have responded that as much action and necessity is bogus.

    Please people, think before you act.
    The results of not doing so can and often do affect person aside from yourself be they close or a far.

    That is on a level of stupid entirely its own. I hope those kids have more sense than their parents - one who shoots through walls towards his family, and another who sticks around after the first shot to get hit by the second...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Ditto. I had similar project and the extra long drill bit is now collecting dust. Maybe it will get used once again in my life. Stupid to try and save $25 and end up killing your wife. Bad, bad news and sucks big time for the kids.

    In regards to the Brady Bunch - to he** with them and their kind. They would make up stories if nothing else to keep their war on guns alive. This guy didn't help 'the cause' but stuff happens in this world and it isn't just guns that cause stupidity related deaths ( see The Darwin Awards)
    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on his wearing his sidearm. 'Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you expecting trouble?' 'No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have brought my rifle.'

    Well, looking on the bright side...he obviously has a hole in his exterior wall to run that cable through now.
    At least he can watch TV with the kids and will be able to see his total stupidity broadcast on Worldwide International News in 27 different languages.

    Idiot.

    His local gunshop just got his order for .45 cal "texas drill kit" so he should be able to watch TV next week, Hoping he will be on the outside checking for accuracy of the drill this time though.

    Anyone want to help him align the new drill hole.

    Ok sorry I have a cold heart when it comes to stupidity, Just wondering how many stupid people there really are, whats next 12 ga. back scratchers?

    I mean....let's just pretend (for just a minute) that this guy is not a moron or a total imbecile.

    Maybe it's a cover-up for a carefully planned Murder just made to look like an accident.
