Motocrosser beheaded by piano wire


An Italian motocrosser, Marco Badiali, 48, was beheaded by piano wire strung between two trees on a farm near Modena, during an approved race in front of other riders travelling at 60mph. Officials suspended the competition and called in police.

A friend of Mr Badiali said “We walked the course the night before and the wire was not there. The wire was put there on purpose by someone with the intention of killing a rider."

A police spokesman said "A local farmer is being questioned in connection with this death but we are releasing no details about him. We are also looking for others in connection with the incident."

Yikes. I had a cousin who was severely injured while riding a dirt bike at a much slower speed. He had been riding across an open field regularly. The owner had erected fence posts, but not wire. Unfortunately, my cousin rode through the day after the owner had strung the top wire for his new barbed wire fence. He survived, but required a bit of plastic surgery to fix the ugly scars on his neck.

It goes to show that there are some very sick people out there.

I've never understood evil, but I can certainly recognize it.

I'm a real pussycat, until provoked.
