True Crime Podcast Lakeside Suicide Epi. 1
We received a call around 10pm one Saturday night in the middle of June, 2009. Someone had shot themselves in the head. Tragedies like this are not uncommon and unfortunately there’s a high demand for services like ours.
I have cleaned up many suicides committed by many methods. When I rounded the corner and saw the hallway outside of the room, I knew this was going to be unlike any cleanup I had faced to date.
The victim had shot himself in the head with a 30 ought 6 hunting rifle, I’m sure you can imagine the devastation this bullet can cause at point blank range. At the time the trigger was pulled, his younger brother was in the next room, his parents across the hall. In my estimation, we found about 20% of his skull in fragments throughout his room.
After all was said and done, we had loaded up and headed back to get some much needed sleep before the next call came in. We stopped at a local gas station to fill up and take a moment to gather ourselves. We were approached by another local who knew why were in town. He told us that the family would be returning shortly and that we needed to hit the road.
