Karate expert kills two over lice infection
Fri Apr 10, 2009 1:36pm EDT

MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Russian karate expert has been charged with beating to death a 61-year-old woman and her son, whom he accused of infecting his wife with lice, an investigator said Friday.

The drunk 26-year-old burst into a neighboring room in his hostel Tuesday and used karate moves to kill the pair, state investigator Eduard Abdullin said by telephone from Kazan, a city 700 km (430 miles) east of Moscow.

"He literally beat them to death with his hands and feet," Abdullin said. "The family were poor and drank a lot. He blamed them for infecting his wife and the entire corridor with lice."

The 58-year-old husband of the dead woman was also badly beaten, but survived.

The suspect, who studied karate for seven years, faces life in prison if convicted, Abdullin added.

If you want to draw something, I can give you a number of Tom's exploits that you can draw. The beating to death of the shop keeper and woman with a cane that Tom discusses in one of the early episodes is only one such incident in Tom's brutal (beautiful) career.

The highlight for me is the campaign where Tom harvested the organs of our dead enemies to sell on the black market...loot the bodies indeed.

I died laughing at the first sentence of the story and then realized I was laughing at a very serious death scene.

I don't feel bad though because Tom would totally do that in game!

One of the first CoC games I played with Tom, he made Ross role play a full dissection of a body to look for clues too.

I told one of my students about this and he said, "what is his job?"

And I said, "Well, he's Russian so . . . probably being poor."

You know me.  If something seems like a good idea in a game (to me) then I'll just go ahead and do it.  Though, I am particularly proud of the organ harvesting bit.

Hey, the GM sent us out on the mission with a budget of a couple of hundred dollars.  I was a surgeon with the morals and self control of Dr. Mengele after his wife left him.
Consequences (and ethics) be damned.

And really, think of all the people who you helped with those organs. And statistically, you probably indirectly saved at least once hot chick's life, and really that makes the whole universe a better place.

Another character of Tom's that has come to life has to be the guy who shot another man in the face at a McDonald's at 3a.m. a few weeks ago. The man who was shot survived, so that means that two Tom characters have been brought to life: 1) any person who would shoot another man in the face and 2) someone who can survive being shot in the face.
