"Teen's Shooting Death Being Investigated As Homicide"

Strange, and very sad.
Police are now investigating the death of an 18-year-old girl Christmas night as a homicide, investigators said.

Kimberly Tallo was found lying on the floor of a home on the 300 block of East Southcross Avenue with a gunshot wound above her right eye, according to a police report. Investigators said her boyfriend told officers she shot herself while playing Russian Roulette, but police became suspicious when his story kept changing.
(from KSAT)

I suspect there was more than just a game going on here. But, if the two really were playing Russian Roulette, then let this be a cautionary tale to everyone who reads this.

There is nothing cool about Russian Roulette, in any form. It is a horrible game, and if anyone seriously tries to get you to play, don't. Far better to be considered uncool than to be declared room temperature.

UPDATE: The police have arrested the boyfriend. The medical examiner determined that there was no Russian Roulette involved.

My mom was her teacher last year at Harlandale, and was pretty close to her. Her boyfriend shot her. Bottomline.

A 1 in 6 chance of being dead isn't very good odds.
RR is the dumbest "game" ever invented, but it does help keep the gene pool clean, Darwin-style.
I have nothing but love for the colossal intellects that have played it with an automatic--empty clip but one in the chamber. What the odds are then?
