Dead KY Census Worker Not Hung

Officials now claim earlier AP reports that he was fund hung from a tree were inaccurate. When discovered "his body was in contact with the ground."

But he did die of asphyxiation. And they have been unable to rule out whether this was an accident, homicide or suicide.

I'm beginning to wonder what would have killed Bill.

Probably an erotic asphyxiation game gone horribly wrong.

Either that, or he was knockin' 'em dead with his David Carradine impersonation.

Did he have his pants on?

He was bound with duct-tape & naked.

He was naked except for his socks, hands & feet were bound with duct tape, his mouth was gagged, duct tape put over his eyes to blind him & also around his neck, the word "fed" was written across his chest in marker & his ID was taped to his shoulder. His clothes were found folded in his pickup truck some yards away. Anybody have a joke to make about that?

He could have had clogged sinuses and died simply from being gagged, or died of monoxide poisoning while being tranported in a car trunk. Neither of which would make it any less of a murder, if it happened during the commission of a felony.
