Police state that man found bound, gagged, and stuffed in a sleeping bag is the worst case of suicide they’ve seen in quite some time

0

A MAN whose body was found bound and gagged in a sleeping bag in his shed was a simple, happy person who fixed cars and loved life.

143727-f5eda3b6-5e6e-11e4-919b-767a5a42ab7cAn inquest today into the bizarre death of disability pensioner Karl Robert Wright, 43, in July, 2013, has heard he had no worries, helped everyone and was always keen for a cuppa.

Police have ruled the whiz mechanic killed himself – binding his own hands in cable ties, covering his head in a balaclava and wrapping a rag and cling film over his mouth.

His mother Paula Wright found his clothed body on a mattress in a shed on their Sunshine Coast property, with his feet protruding from a zipped sleeping bag.

Karl’s brother Byron told the inquest in Maroochydore he did not think it was possible for Karl to have done that to himself and then wriggled head first into the bag.

Each wrist was cable tied, and a third tie linked the two on his hands into a praying position.

The cling wrap was so tight over his mouth it sunk between his lips, however his nose was uncovered.

“My instincts say he was murdered,” said Byron.

Ms Wright said Karl sometimes passed out at the sight of blood or other frights and she believed that may have contributed to his death.

“I think he was frightened and he was so frightened that he passed out and something has happened to him after that,” she said.

The inquest heard Karl, who had a minor intellectual disability, had no secrets. He was close to his mum who made his bed daily and cleaned his room.

Although he couldn’t read or write, he didn’t mind as he had made a life going to the aid of people with car troubles – even strangers on the roadside.

He had no anxieties about money or relationships, no other stresses and didn’t own a computer.

He had an active social life, visiting neighbours sometimes three times a day, didn’t drink or take drugs, refusing even to use Panadol.

Ms Wright last saw him alive when she bade him goodnight on 28 July, 2013, as he watched one of his favourite English shows in the living room.

“He told me he was going to finish the show and was going to bed,” she said.

“That was the last time I saw him alive.”

The next morning, after feeding the chooks and horses, Mrs Wright tried to rouse Karl but found his bedroom door unusually locked from the inside.

She went outside and saw the bedroom window ajar and the fly screen removed and leaning against the house.

“In a panic I opened the window and climbed in,” she said. There was bark on the floor around the bed and wardrobe but no sign of Karl.

After a quick search outside Ms Wright went to the shed, which also was unusually locked, and made a horrifying discovery.

“There was a mattress on the floor and a green sleeping bag and feet sticking out,” she said.

“I knew it was him by the socks.

“I walked over and touched the sleeping bag. It felt like it was stiff.”

Karl’s aunt Ruth Gould, 56, said the sleeping bag was “very straight”, and did not look like it had been shuffled into.

The inquest heard the gag cloth was a scrap of rag from a collection Karl used during repairs.

The cable ties also appeared to be his own.

Byron told the inquest the mattress bore faeces and urine, and police told him to burn it “because they didn’t need it”.

He found more scraps of material twisted into rope and cable ties and cling wrap in the incinerator.

Ms Gould, 56, said she did not think police had investigated thoroughly enough before concluding suicide.

“I just don’t think they spoke to enough people. I feel that we had to push for them to speak to people,” she said.

“I myself got the impression that there wasn’t a huge investigation.”

The stunt, by an advertising agency specialising in mobile adverts, backfired after police sent out patrols to round up all the vehicles and impound them until the risque images could be removed.

Motorist Ildar Yuriev, 35, said: ‘I was on my way to a business meeting when I saw this truck with a huge photo of breasts on its side go by.

‘Then I was hit by the car behind who said he had been distracted by the truck. It made me late and left my car in the garage, and although I am insured I am still out of pocket.’

Furious drivers across Moscow have reportedly bombarded the agency with compensation claims.

A spokesman for AdvTruck.ru, which ran the promotion said: ‘We are planning to bring a new advertising format onto the market, encouraging companies to place their ads on the sides of trucks, as we thought this would be a good alternative to putting them on the sides of public transport.

‘We wanted to draw attention to this new format with this campaign’ he explained.

And he added: ‘In all cases of accidents, the car owners will receive compensation costs from us that aren’t covered by their insurance.’

Man sues hospital after they forget to remove three of his friend’s teeth ….. embedded in his leg

A man whose friend’s teeth were embedded in his leg in an accident on a trampoline is suing a hospital for failing to remove them.

PX9386290CASCADE-N_3076073bDaniel Rigby, from Pollards Hill in London has suffered debilitating knee swelling since the incident in March.

He says Croydon University Hospital failed to fully remove the three teeth which have caused a severe infection.

The 29-year-old was lying on his trampoline playing with his iPad when Peter Walsh, his best friend, came over to join him.

Mr Rigby said: “He jumped on and jokingly tried to kick me, I pulled his leg away and his face smashed into my knee and he blacked out.”

“He was probably out for a couple of minutes. He was face down and I saw blood coming out of his mouth and teeth missing so I thought it was quite bad. I tried to stand up and then collapsed because of my leg.”

After his friend came-to he managed to drag them both into a cab which rushed them to Accident and Emergency at Croydon University Hospital.

Teeth stuck in my leg. He took me off to X-Ray and he said there’s only a bit of bone cartilage, nothing to worry about.

“They gave me two stitches and sent me on my way.”

Afterwards the men went to Mr Walsh’s house where his nan inspected the knee and said she thought it was infected and he should return to hospital straight away.

The next day Mr Rigby went to A & E at St George’s Hospital, Tooting, where doctors opened the wound and cleaned out parts of the teeth which were embedded in his leg.

The scaffolder, who now feels insecure wearing shorts and going swimming, has employed a solicitor to file a negligence claim against the hospital for failing to spot that parts of the teeth remained in his leg.

A Croydon Health Services NHS Trust spokesman said: “We cannot comment in detail on individual cases due to patient confidentiality.

“Patients in our care are advised to contact us again after treatment if their condition persists or worsens. We would encourage Mr Rigby to contact us if he has any concerns about his care.”

Mr Rigby, who still works as a scaffolder and will soon be a father, thinks the injury will have an impact on his future career.

He said: “It’s really bad. Since it happened my legs stiffens up and I have to strap it up when it gets really bad. I’m very grateful for the treatment I got at St George’s but not to the man who treated me at Croydon.”

You know what’s (probably) not cool being a guy getting a colonoscopy? Waking up in women’s pink underwear

0

A Delaware man who says he awoke from a colonoscopy to find he was wearing pink women’s underwear is suing a surgical center.

Andrew Walls of Dover filed the civil lawsuit in New Castle County Superior Court against the Delaware Surgery Center on Friday. It seeks unspecified damages.

A spokeswoman for the surgery center declined to comment on the case.

Walls’ attorney, Gary Nitsche, wrote in the lawsuit that his client suffered severe emotional stress and mental anguish after waking up from a colonoscopy on Oct. 12, 2012, to find he was wearing pink women’s underwear. Walls says he had not been wearing the underwear before being given anesthesia for the procedure.

Man divorces wife for not closing car door

Islam forbids Muslims from divorcing out of anger or for petty reasons, but this injunction did not stop a Saudi man from leaving his wife because she refused to close their car door, according to recent reports in local media and on social networking sites.

SAUDI-women-carThe couple reportedly went out on a picnic and when they returned home, the wife got out, helped their children to do so and then moved to go into their house.

Her husband then called out for her to close the door, but she refused, saying he should do so because he was closer to it. Incensed at her reply, the husband reportedly said: “You are forbidden to me and should not enter my home if you do not close the door.”

The woman then reportedly left and returned to her father’s house. Many people have tried to reconcile the couple, but the woman has rejected all attempts, saying that she does not want to remain married to such an “irresponsible” man Arab News spoke to well-known Saudi Sheikh Asim Al-Hakim on the matter, who said that the divorce is valid based on the man’s actions.

Al-Hakim explained that there are direct and indirect divorces. Direct divorce can occur even if a person jokes about it. Indirect divorce is based on intent.

“Intention is very important in such cases, but such behavior is irresponsible.” He said Islam has given men a great deal of responsibility to act correctly under these circumstances. “So a man should be very careful about his actions,” he said.

He said a judge can issue a final verdict in such cases. He warned that people should not act hastily and in anger.

According to a study conducted by Aleqtesadiah newspaper, there are 2.5 divorce cases for every 1,000 men above the age of 15.

There were 30,000 divorces in 2012, averaging 82 a day, or three an hour. In earlier reports, the Ministry of Economy and Planning confirmed that while courts and marriage officials register around 70,000 marriage contracts annually, they also process more than 13,000 divorces.

The study also showed that the Kingdom ranked second among Gulf Cooperation Council countries in terms of divorces after Bahrain, where the rate is 2.7 for every 1,000 people. The same study showed an upward trend in divorce cases in 2012 compared with 2010, when there were 75 a day.

NYPD Pays Arrested Men For Mistaking Jolly Rancher Candies For Meth Rocks

0

In settlement of a civil rights lawsuit, the City of New York will pay three Brooklyn men a total of $33,000 in connection with their arrests last year after NYPD officers mistakenly identified Jolly Ranchers as methamphetamine during drug busts.

jrinsideTwo of the men, Love Olatunjiojo, 26, and Omar Ferriera, 23, were collared after cops approached them shortly after the pair left It’Sugar, a Coney Island candy store where they had bought various sweets, including Jolly Rancher candies.

While searching the duo, police recovered a “quantity of methamphetamine” from both men, according to misdemeanor criminal complaints. Police initially reported to Brooklyn prosecutors that the suspected meth field-tested positive for the presence of narcotics.

In sworn criminal complaints filed against Olatunjiojo and Ferriera, Officer Jermaine Taylor declared that he “has had professional testing as a police officer in the identification of methamphetamine.”

However, a subsequent NYPD lab analysis revealed that the red and blue “crystalline rocks of solid material” contained no controlled substances. As a result, charges against Olatunjiojo and Ferriera were dismissed.

A third man, Jimmy Sano, 27, was busted when he protested the arrest of his two friends. Sano, who was with his three-year-old daughter at the time of his arrest, was charged with obstruction and resisting arrest. In April, Sano’s case was adjourned in contemplation of dismissal.
