91-year-old Nelson Harvey killed his wife, and the reason is so heartbreaking that I broke into tears. His 93-year-old wife, Evelyn, was terminally ill. What type of man in his sound mind will kill his ill life? Such a cold blooded incident may bring goosebumps to anyone, but sometimes the things are not as they seem, there may be more to them.
A retirement center in El Paso, Texas. Unknown to carers, Nelson took a gun into the center. He shot Emily dead and told one of the caretakers that she passed away. The woman to whom he told about Emily's death presumed that his wife must have died due to the complications related to her illness.
Evelyn Harvey was lying in a pool of blood with a gunshot wound to her head when the carers found her hours later.
Nelson told the staff that his wife died during the course of the night and made reference that she was tired of her suffering and that is why he shot her. Handing his weapon to staff, he was soon arrested on the charges of murder. He is being held on $25,000 bond.
I don't know what I must have done in the same situation. The old man did the right thing in my opinion. So I ask you, what would you have done if you were in the old man's place?
