A Missouri man fatally shot his wife while trying to install a satellite TV system in the bedroom of their home.

She died after being shot in the chest with a .22-caliber handgun. Her husband fired the shot from the inside of their home after several unsuccessful efforts to punch a hole through the exterior wall using other means.


This story is incomplete, because it doesn’t tell us whether this technique worked; i.e., was the hole good enough for the satellite TV wire?

It would seem to me that maybe a .38 caliber bullet would be better than a .22, while a .45 would only be necessary to run, say, two cables and maybe an extension cord to the barbecue grill rotisserie motor. Or outdoor Christmas lights. It depends.

Oh, and as to his wife: he probably stationed her out there as a safety observer. That would explain why she was tied to that chair…

 (Not, she wasn’t really tied to the chair.)

Ha ha!
He probably shot her after she made the comment that “I knew I should have called the cable company instead! You can’t do anything right!”

Ooohh, Brenda, you are exactly right!
