I don’t usually write about crime, except when I write about Eric Holder and the New Black Panthers. But this story will boil your blood:
Bob Strait, a 90-year-old Tulsa resident, died on Friday, and a medical examiner is determining his cause of death, News On 6 reports.
He was injured March 13 when, police say, Tyrone Woodfork, 20, entered the house and attacked, allegedly beating and sexually assaulted Strait’s 85-year-old wife, Nancy Strait, who died two days later. The couple had been married for 65 years.
Bob Strait was a World War II paratrooper who took part in the D-Day invasion as part of the 101st Airborne Division, where he was awarded a Bronze Star.
The [accused] [animal] Tyrone Woodfork was caught driving the couple’s car around. And yes, Oklahoma has the death penalty, though some might find lethal injection a kinder gentler outcome than what Mr. Woodfork did to the couple, assuming of course he is found guilty.
