Murdered during Suicide attempt

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 3, 2009, 4:48 PM

...


On 23 March 1994, the medical examiner viewed the body of Ronald Opus and concluded that he died from a shotgun wound of the head. The decedent had jumped from the top of a ten- story building intending to commit suicide (he left a note indicating his despondency).

As he fell past the ninth floor, his life was interrupted by a shotgun blast through a window, which killed him instantly. Neither the shooter nor the decedent was aware that a safety net had been erected at the eighth floor level to protect some window washers and that Opus would not have been able to complete his suicide anyway because of this.

SINcerely,
Ominous Shadows

Ominous note: If he hadn't been shot, he would have lived.  Now tell me, how worthless you would feel by a failed suicide attempt.  Your life is fucked and you can't even get suicide right!


“All fled…all alone, so lift me on the pyre; the feast is over, and the lamp expire.”

OOOOh that would be fucked up for sure! In the afterlife, I'd think you'd be doomed to relive it until it came out right... then you could have a better afterlife.

Sorta like Ourbouros- the snake that eats it's tail... :D

Well the question is, will he go to hell for attempting suicide, or will he make it into heaven because he was murdered?!?

Hmm, so was the shotgun blast from another suicider also? Or just some jack ass felt like shooting out a window right that second, lol.

If I remember correctly, he was fighting with his wife and the gun just went off. :shrug:

he did and he was. But the people on floor nine were fighting over the gun and it went off. Which shot the guy who was falling past the window.

haven't herd this one before,
a real stroke of luck for him to say, if his life was fucked so hard that he wanted to commit suicide, as you noted, he'd lived but he didn't really want that, so lucky for him the shooter was there
Don't get me wrong, I don't want anyone to die, but since he already wanted to die, the shooter acted like a fail safe of sort

haha, also if you trust the old believing, suicide's go to hell, but he got off that charge now did he... but I doubt that

though this whole story really sounds like a one in a million chance...

Yea, I figure they held a trial like in the movie "Defending your life".

Well his life must really have sucked. He wanted to kill himself, and that didn't even work out.

Well I was going to put up another story. It was a cab driver that tied a rope around a lamp post and the other end around his neck. Then he drove off a bridge, ripping his head violently off.

Ive heard that story, or at least a similar one.

I think I heard a comedian use that same line, the 'can't even kill yourself right' thing, unless if Im just thinking of Castaway =X

Yea, It's an old story, but I found it interesting.

I'm sure someone has said it before, it's just depressing to think of how that would feel!
