    The Most Incredible Murder Mystery, ever.

    you are going to love this story ...

    The Most Incredible Murder Mystery, ever.


    You couldn't make this stuff up it's so bizarre!!!!! For those who have
    served on jury...this one is something to think about.. Just when you
    think
    you have heard everything!!


    Do you like to read a good murder mystery? At the 1994 annual awards
    dinner
    given for Forensic Science, (AAFS)President Dr. Don Harper Mills
    astounded
    his audience with the legal complications of a bizarre death. Here is
    the
    story:


    On March 23, 1994 ... the medical examiner viewed the body of Ronald
    Opus,
    and concluded that he died from a shotgun wound to the head. Mr. Opus
    had
    jumped from the top of a ten-story building intending to commit suicide.


    He left a note to the effect indicating his despondency. As he fell past
    the
    ninth floor, his life was interrupted by a shotgun blast passing through
    a
    window, which killed him instantly.


    Neither the shooter nor the deceased was aware that a safety net had
    been
    installed just below the eighth floor level to protect some building
    workers
    and that Ronald Opus would not have been able to complete his suicide
    the
    way he had planned.


    The room on the ninth floor, where the shotgun blast emanated, was
    occupied
    by an elderly man and his wife. They were arguing vigorously and he was
    threatening her with a shotgun! The man was so upset that when he pulled
    the
    trigger, he completely missed his wife, and the pellets went through the


    window, striking Mr. Opus.


    When one intends to kill subject 'A' but kills subject 'B' in the
    attempt,
    one is guilty of the murder of subject 'B.'


    When confronted with the murder charge, the old man and his wife were
    both
    adamant, and both said that they thought the shotgun was not loaded. The
    old
    man said it was a long-standing habit to threaten his wife with the
    unloaded
    shotgun. He had no intention to murder her. Therefore the killing of Mr.


    Opus appeared to be an accident; that is, assuming the gun had been
    accidentally loaded.


    The continuing investigation turned up a witness who saw the old
    couple's
    son loading the shotgun about six weeks prior to the fatal accident. It
    transpired that the old lady had cut off her son's financial support and
    the
    son, knowing the propensity of his father to use the shotgun
    threateningly,
    loaded the gun with the expectation that his father would shoot his
    mother.


    Since the loader of the gun was aware of this, he was guilty of the
    murder
    even though he didn't actually pull the trigger. The case now becomes
    one of
    murder on the part of the son for the death of Ronald Opus.


    Now comes the exquisite twist ... Further investigation revealed that
    the
    son was, in fact, Ronald Opus. He had become increasingly despondent
    over
    the failure of his attempt to engineer his mother's murder.


    This led him to jump off the ten-story building on March 23rd, only to
    be
    killed by a shotgun blast passing through the ninth story window.


    The son, Ronald Opus, had actually murdered himself. So the medical
    examiner
    closed the case as a suicide.
