    What the hell is wrong with you people down there?

    Found this on MSNBC...
    Texas Man Refuses to Yield Mother's Pacemaker
    HOUSTON (Reuters) - A Texas man charged with removing a pacemaker from his mother's body with a kitchen knife refused to give authorities the device in exchange for his freedom on Tuesday, prosecutors said.
    James Allan Donalson, 59, said he sliced out the pacemaker after his 85-year-old mother, Ann Donalson, died of natural causes on Sunday so he would have evidence in a 10-year dispute involving doctors and the medical device company that provided it, the sheriff's department said.
    Donalson was released on a $5,000 bond on Tuesday. Prosecutors offered to drop a felony charge of evidence tampering if he gave the pacemaker to coroners, but he declined.
    ''Right now that's the position,'' Harris County prosecutor Leslie LeGrand III said. ''If we get the pacemaker back, the case will be dismissed.''
    Medical examiners want to scan the device as part of their investigation into the woman's death.

    Lake Jackson death blamed on alcohol enema

    Victim's wife is accused of giving him a lethal dose

    By RICHARD STEWART
    Copyright 2005 Houston Chronicle

    LAKE JACKSON - Investigators say a Lake Jackson woman caused her husband's death by giving him a sherry enema, leading to alcohol poisoning. The enema caused his blood alcohol level to soar to 0.47 percent — almost six times the legal intoxication limit, a toxicology report showed.

    Tammy Jean Warner, 42, was indicted on a charge of negligent homicide. She is also charged with burning the will of her husband, Michael Warner, a month before his death on May 21.

    Michael Warner, a 58-year-old machine shop owner, had a long history of alcoholism, but couldn't ingest alcohol by mouth because of painful medical problems with his throat, said Lake Jackson police detective Robert Turner. The enema was a way he could become intoxicated without drinking alcohol, Turner said.

    "I heard of this kind of thing in mortuary school in 1970, but this is the first time I've ever heard of someone actually doing it," Turner said.

    Turner said police think Warner gave her husband at least two large bottles of sherry, which is stronger than wine, in the enema.

    "We're not talking about little bottles here," Turner said, "These were at least 1.5 liter bottles."

    Turner said police don't know if the victim had ever become intoxicated in that manner before the lethal incident.

    Tammy Warner told police that she found her husband dead in their bed. Turner said she admitted giving him the sherry enema, but not to causing his death.

    "A person drinking alcohol will usually pass out before getting a lethal dose," Turner said.

    "But if you're getting it through an enema, you can pass out and still be ingesting more alcohol."

    Tammy Warner surrendered to Lake Jackson police Monday and was released on $30,000 bond. She could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

    Neither Turner nor Brazoria County District Attorney Jeri Yenne would comment on the charge related to the will.

    The indictment said providing him with alcohol and destroying the will constituted a "criminal episode."

    Although Michael Warner may have agreed initially to the enema as a way to become intoxicated, Yenne said, "he was not a willing participant in something that would cause his death."

    "He knew that it was very dangerous for him to have any form of alcohol and she knew it was very dangerous for him to have alcohol," Yenne said.

    The couple's neighbors said they were surprised Wednesday to learn of the indictment.

    John Criswell, 24, said the widow had mostly been away from the modest brown frame house at the end of the street since her husband died.

    "She said she was scared to stay there by herself alone," Criswell said. "She said she'd been having trouble with his family."

    The couple had been married about two years, police said.

    "She asked me to keep an eye on the place," Criswell said. He said he last saw her about three weeks ago.

    Now that is believeable! When I was away at college, there was a pledge class of girls in a sorority that did this on campus (man, would I have paid money to see this). The girl got real sick and passed out and they called the medics, something like a 750 bottle of absolute in her! SHe didn't realize she had to much till she laid down and that was it. It happened a few more times that semester too, before it really made headlines. Something about being able to pass a blow test, yet still get your drink on. Here's to turkey basters people!!!!
