Yard Obsession Drives Man to Kill Teenager
Gardening is a healthy hobby and everyone appreciates a nice and appealing yard. That said some people take the entire matter a little too seriously. Fox has an unbelievable story up about just such a person, and how his obsession over the yard drove him to kill. Per Fox:
A man who neighbors say was devoted to his meticulously kept lawn was charged with murder in the shooting of a 15-year-old boy who apparently walked across his yard…….
Larry Mugrage, whose family lived next door, was shot in the chest with a shotgun. The high school freshman was pronounced dead at a hospital………………………
Gardening ceases to be a healthy hobby obviously, when it causes someone to become so obsessed and so protective that they would shoot a kid for walking on the grass……….Sounds like it might be time for lots of interventions in lots of neighborhoods for those suffering from “yard obsession”…..
