From the Smoking Gun:
OCTOBER 8 – An Alabama minister who died in June of “accidental mechanical asphyxia” was found hogtied and wearing two complete wet suits, including a face mask, diving gloves and slippers, rubberized underwear, and a head mask, according to an autopsy report.
The police ruled out foul play, and said that the minister, Reverand Gary Aldridge was home alone when he died (in some autoerotic kind of thing — trust me, if you want the full skinny, click the link above).
Now the best part:
Immediately following his death, church officials issued a press release asking community members to “please refrain from speculation” about what led to Aldridge’s demise…
"Please refrain from speculation"? The man was wearing rubberized underwear and was hogtied! Kinda hard not to speculate….
UPDATE: Could have guessed. He was a colleague of Falwell’s.
