    Not the best way to get rid of Lice

    [size=13pt]Police say S. Indiana teen critically burned trying to kill lice by dousing hair in gasoline[/size]

    Associated Press

    EVANSVILLE, Ind. - Police say a teenager who soaked her hair in gasoline to try to kill head lice was severely burned when the gas fumes ignited and set her head ablaze.

    Eighteen-year-old Jessica Brooks was in serious condition Thursday at the burn unit at University Hospital in Louisville, Ky. She was burned Sunday night at her apartment in Evansville, Ind.

    Police said Brooks was in her bathroom letting her hair soak in gasoline just before a pilot light from a water heater ignited the gas fumes and her hair.

    Investigator Richard Howard said Brooks suffered second- and third-degree burns over more than half of her body.

    Maybe it was a failed suicide?

    I'll give her the benefit of the doubt, because a failed suicide makes more sense than soaking yourself in gas and planning on living.

    Running up to Walgreens is much harder work than simply walking into the garage and grabbing some gas.
    makes perfect sense to me.

    Exactly what I was thinking. He had a problem and he solved it. The ends always justify the means.
