on stopping power
A man and woman have a suicide pact over financial difficulties. The man shoots his wife in the back of the head. Then shoots himself. He then drives them both three miles to the police station where the police note:
“At first, when they said they wanted to report that they’d attempted suicide, we thought they had used sleeping pills or something along those lines,” Phillips said. “They were walking and talking, and they were in distress but not overly in distress.”
Wounds were not life-threatening.
I have to wonder what the weapon was in this case.
