Fla. man kills roommate over toilet paper
February 21, 2006

MOSS BLUFF, Fla. --A man accused of fatally beating his roommate with a sledgehammer and a claw hammer because there was no toilet paper in their home has been arrested.

Franklin Paul Crow, 56, was charged Monday with homicide in the death of Kenneth Matthews, 58, according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office.

Capt. Thomas Bibb said Crow initially denied his involvement, but confessed during questioning.

Crow told investigators that the men were fighting about the toilet paper over the weekend when Matthews pulled out a rifle. Crow said he then began beating Matthews with the sledgehammer and claw hammer, according to an affidavit.

Matthews was beaten so badly he had to be identified through his fingerprints, detectives said.

Crow was being held at the Marion County jail without bond. It was not immediately known whether he had an attorney.

I'd like to point out to VA that there were no crazy women involved in this incident.

So much for my original idea for a Brokeback Mountain sequel.

The guy that did the beating probably wanted to do the act a long time ago. This time he actually did it.

Either sit him in jail for the rest of his life with no possibility of parole or execute him.

The next time you're about to leave the toilet seat up remember what happened to this guy.

In my house, I would imagine that installing the toilet paper roll so that it rolls from the top would result in a similar beating at the hands of my wife.
