DEEPWATER, Mo. -- Officials were trying Tuesday to decide whether to file charges against a Missouri man who fatally shot his wife while trying to install a satellite TV system in the bedroom of their home.

Patsy Long, 34, of Deepwater, died after being shot in the chest with a .22-caliber handgun on Saturday. Her husband, Ronald Long, fired the shot from the inside of their home after several unsuccessful efforts to punch a hole through the exterior wall using other means.

Henry County sheriff's deputies said the woman was hit by the second of two shots fired by her husband.

Interesting way to commit murder. This may be a first.

If that man doesn’t deserve a Darwin Award, I don’t know who does.

Buy a drill with drill bit. Drill hole. Even I could figure that out. Always use the right tool for the job.

Unfortunately, he doesn’t qualify. You have to take yourself out of the gene pool. Now, whether or not he should be promoted to full recipient status, that’s another story...

The woman, who was outside the house, was hit by the second of two shots fired by Ronald Long, the Henry County Sheriff’s Department said.

Hmmm... he missed the first time?

Ok, assuming that she knew what he was doing, she was astoundingly of less understanding of physics than even her husband. A tragic story for those close to the situation. May God grant comfort to her loved ones at this time.

Would be interesting to determine (if possible) the size of the hole after firing the first shot.

For standard speaker wire, I guess a .22 will work. For extra tough drilling, I’d use a .22 magnum.

Then again, the wife might qualify for having married the guy!

One night Trudy Ball (as we came to find was her name), a flaming red-head, and her husband got into a raging gun battle. Both were outside firing away at each other, one on one side, and the other on the other side, sometimes through the windows.

Tore that place up.

They both survived but divorced and moved away later (thank goodness).

No, no, no. He got that all wrong. Satellite TV cable is usually RG6. He’d need to use a .38 for that.

A friend owns a range in NC. He routinely uses a 9mm to drill holes in wooden target stands. Of course it’s always done so the round impacts into a berm.

Isn’t it great that so many calibers are available for different wiring applications? Do you think 9mm would work with RG6?

I’m gonna use my .45 to run some copper pipe thru a wall in my house in order to save some time...

Would this case be treated any differently had he been using a nail gun instead of a hand gun?

I wonder what the “other means” were this knot head was employing. Could be anything from a butter knife to a high heel shoe. Either this guy is very clever and wanted to off his wife or is the biggest stumble bum in the USA.

That’s nothing.

Gasoline thieves have come up with a new method to get gas out of your tank.

They simply use a cordless drill, and drill right into the tank.

Pretty smart, huh?
