mystery. It was yet another Arkancide. DUH! Are you actually confused?
How dumb can you be? Maybe it’s not always stupidity–it is often willful ignorance, after all!
… the weapon itself never turned up.
Gee, how does that happen? A suicide. Riiiiight.
Do I look stupid? No really, do I look stupid?
UPDATE: New reports say that the death weapon WAS there. But the report is that it was 30 feet away from the victim. I guess no one thought it could be that far away so no one looked!
Could most people even throw a full-size shotgun 30 feet? AFTER a catastrophic wound? It seems quite unlikely that recoil alone would carry it that far. Could it really go 30 feet on its own? Even from a tree?
As a longtime shotgunner, I am VERY doubtful. 30 Feet? No way–not without a STEEP slippery hill. 5 feet? Unlikely, on flat-ish ground, but perhaps under just the right conditions–you know, ultralight, single shot, 10-gauge…
