Jockstrap Prank: The Last Laugh?

Have you heard about the 73 year old South Dakota man, Carl Ericsson, who shot and killed a retired school teacher, Norman Johnson, back in January?  The two had been high school classmates over 50 years earlier but had not been friends in adulthood. "Ericsson told Judge Vince Foley that he rang the doorbell at Johnson’s house then asked his old classmate to verify his identity before shooting him with a .45-caliber pistol." Apparently Norman Johnson had pulled a jockstrap over Ericsson's head in a locker room when they were in high school back in the 1950s, and Ericsson just could not forget about it.

You can read a Washington Post article about it HERE, which includes a photo of Ericsson.  He was sentenced last Friday to serve life in prison.
