15. Shot himself in the chest?
Edited on Mon Oct-27-03 02:46 PM by spindoctor
I am no expert on suicide, but why shoot yourself in the chest? That is risking a delayed and painful death as opposed to a shot through the brain, the more classical method.

He might have been charged with murder, but what judge would convict a man for defending his beer? ;)

To answer a question that was brought up, my old company had about 50 soldiers all together. A company is defined as a self-supporting unit. The number of men in a company can differ greatly. It can have anywhere between 2 and 5 platoons, depending on its task. A platoon has 10 - 20 men.

From a conspiracy perspective, it does not matter how many people were in her company, it matters how many people in her company are willing to talk.

As for the myth surrounding the poor girl, I thought that was sufficiently dealt with in various articles in newspapers all over in May of this year.
