    Man kills wife with toilet paper

    Man shoots wife with gun loaded with a wad of toilet paper because "she wouldn't leave."
    Thursday, July 22, 2010

    (UPI) - Police in North Carolina said they arrested a man who allegedly loaded his gun with a wad of toilet paper and shot his wife in the back.

    The Rockingham County Sheriff's Office said Lonnie Irvin Pinnix, 38, loaded the pistol with toilet paper when his wife, Darlene Pinnix, 55, returned to their Reidsville home shortly after midnight Tuesday, WGHP-TV, High Point, N.C., reported Wednesday.

    Investigators said the wife lay down on the bed and Lonnie Pinnix shot her in the back with the toilet paper ammunition when she refused his demands to get back up. Deputies said Darlene Pinnix was taken to a hospital to receive treatment for powder burns.

    Lonnie Pinnix told deputies he shot his wife because she wouldn't leave, the report said. He was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and jailed in lieu of $1,000 bond.

    How can you load a 38 with toilet paper? Did she really die, it says she was treated for powder burns. Perhaps the Denver article is not correct?

    38 and 55, a spring-fall marriage?

    Don't you hate these kinds of stories?

    Nowhere in the short article does it mention how many grains of toilet paper was used. No discussion of stopping power, etc.

    And no the wife wasn't killed. (perhaps the hubby used Charmin)

    The link to the story takes you to a radio station page with the bogus headline. Googleing the story will take you to other news stories that headline "shoots wife" not kills wife.

    Maybe he was just mad about the skid marks she was leaving on the bed!!
