A man arrested after a homemade cannon blasted through his mobile home, killing his girlfriend, “liked to live life on the edge,”. This dude packed a cannon with homemade fireworks…lit it…and the rest is HOOSHE HISTORY!
Richard Fox, 39, was arrested for investigation of exploding a device resulting in death after the Tuesday blast in a mountain community near San Diego, sheriff’s Sgt. David Martinez said. Fox’s 38-year-old girlfriend was found dead from shrapnel wounds when authorities arrived at the home. Fox’s brother, Jerry Fox, said he spoke with his anguished brother by phone moments after the blast. Fox shot the cannon after loading it with fireworks powder. He was treated at a hospital for shrapnel wounds to his right leg. Three other adults and a 4-year-old girl who were inside the home escaped injury. Preliminary evidence suggested Fox was under the influence of alcohol. Investigators had not established a motive or determined if the blast was accidental
