Two Words: Homemade Cannon

A 38 year old woman was killed after her boyfriend fired his homemade cannon into their trailer.

In the early Tuesday morning hours Richard Fox (peet: “Dick” Fox?) had been drinking and decided to fill his cannon with firework powder, and the resulting cannonball cut a “large sized” hole into the side of their trailer.  The wife was killed and her 4 yr old daughter and three other adults in the trailer home were not injured.  Fox was treated for shrapnel wounds before being arrested for causing a deadly explosion.

It hasn’t been determined if the explosion was accidental, but Fox was reportedly despondent upon the police’s arrival.
