A 17-year-old boy shot and killed his father and wounded his mother because of his parents’ “constant bickering.”

A young woman tried to kill herself after cashing a worthless check of $10 (about $138 in 2017).

A ouija board “commanded” a man to kill himself. He shot himself in the head though he survived. It was speculated that if he recovered he would be permanently blind.
