Oklahoma man charged with 'atomic wedgie' murder of stepfather

OKLAHOMA CITY Wed Jan 8, 2014 5:46pm EST


(Reuters) - A 33-year-old Oklahoma man has been charged with killing his stepfather by giving him an "atomic wedgie," that caused the victim to suffocate on his own underwear.

Brad Lee Davis was charged with murder in the death of 58-year-old Denver St. Clair in a drunken family fight at a residence just east of Oklahoma City, the Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office said in an arrest affidavit obtained on Wednesday.

Police arrested Davis on Tuesday. The affidavit said he "grabbed St. Clair's underwear and gave him an 'atomic wedgie.' Davis allegedly pulled the elastic waistband of St. Clair's underwear over his head and around his neck."

Oklahoma Medical Examiner spokeswoman Amy Elliott said the cause of death was asphyxiation and blunt force trauma.

Pottawatomie County Sheriff Deputy Travis Palmer said Davis and St. Clair were drinking beer on the night of December 21 at the older man's residence when St. Clair began speaking ill about his wife, who is Davis' mother.

Investigators said St. Clair's elastic waistband was stretched over his head and that it left ligature marks around his neck. Blood splatter was also found in the kitchen, the living room and on the living room ceiling.

Davis was being held in Pottawatomie County without bond. His lawyer was not immediately available for comment.

Although I feel guilty laughing at these posted comments (a man is no longer with us here), I have to wonder what a picture of this act looks like.

Tell you what, it's unfortunate someone died by this stupidity but we must commend the underwear manufacturer for the durability of their product.

Was the stepfather 4 feet tall with a 44 inch waist? I just can't picture pulling someone's briefs high enough to get the waistband around their neck without ripping the crotch of the underwear. Are there any pictures (in case I'm on the jury)?

And the poor guy's last thoughts, "OMG I'm dying by being strangled w/my own underwear".

If they were [anywhere] smoking pot instead of doing alcohol this wouldn't have happened.

The only thing I would consider blowing up would be the scrotum.

....let me re-word that just in case.

I believe the only thing that would be considered having blown up would be the scrotum.

This story is so off somewhere. So did the underwear cause blunt force trauma and blood spatter? I doubt the underwear was the main reason he died. I guess the old man just let him pull up his underwear without a fight...UNLESS he was already knocked out. Hmmm

It is a conspiracy. The mother was involved. She starched the bloomers very heavily. This explains the blunt force trauma.
