In case anyone was still enjoying this story for its air of naughty whimsy or the comparisons to Shawshank Redemption, new station WIVB 4 has obtained a graphic photo of Matt right after he died, and there’s nothing amusing about it. Seriously, it’s got blood and brains and a dead body I’m putting it way at the bottom of this post so you don’t have to look at it if you don’t want to.
To recap some recent facts of the case, both Matt and Sweat were found with marks and abrasions to indicate they were having a rough time of it out there in the woods. Via Buffalo News:
Insect bites were found on his lower extremities, along with “blisters and minor abrasions consistent with living in the woods for three weeks,” the [police] statement read.
I am hoping “lower extremities” doesn’t mean his private parts. May his member remain magnificent to the end.
There’s also evidence that he was wasted at his time of death as authorities found a bottle of “grape liquor” at the scene.
“We believe he was drinking just before he got shot. He may have been wasted,” one source said.
“Toxicology tests are currently being performed.”
You’d be wasted, too, if you knew the feds were closing in on you and you’d rather die than go back to prison. I only wish he could’ve had a tastier final beverage than whatever the hell “grape liquor” is.
Good night, sweet well-hung murderer. And flights of devils sing thee to thy rest.
Accomplice Joyce Mitchell has yet to comment, but she’s presumably sad that one of the two men for whom she ruined her life is now deceased.
