Bizarre Death

Before Christmas, the Texas Highways magazine editor was killed in a fire that authorities are saying he started. I have been waiting to hear of a final cause of death announcement and it seems the story is the same: Jack Lowry commited suicide by starting a fire in his closet!
Come on - this makes no sense. I have never heard of someone killing themselves in this manner. Some people set themselves on fire, but to intentionally suffocate from smoke inhalation?
Anyway, his wife was able to get out of the home but no mention was made of his 3 children.

So, he locks himself in a closet? Starts a Fire? Kills himself? So, they call it suicide.......

Thats hard for me to believe, I would more accept "He was smoking weed in the closet, when his wife's wedding dress caught fire.. He was too stoned to escape and died of smoke inhalation".....

That I could accept.....

Truly weird, who has the answer, he could have shot himself in the back....

I wonder what effect this will have on the magazine, I have never read it but I have seen their shows on RFD-TV, we have Dish Network in the North Georgia Mountains.

QW: That sounds more plausable!

H: Makes sense. 101 ways to strangely kill yourself!

Sarge & Cookie: I haven't been able to find out any more info. I have a subscription to the magazine, so maybe they will report something.
