Predictable Deaths of the Weekend 2

Most of the attention in the Predictable Death sphere has been focused on Steve Irwin getting killed by a stingray, but there’s another that’s flown somewhat under the radar.

Just outside D.C., a psychiatrist who was a nationally known expert in dealing with violent schitzophrenics was killed by a violent schitzophrenic.

Generally things like this come in threes, so I’m just waiting for the third one to show up.

    Actually, while it sounded like they knew this particular guy was dangerous, in general the psychological research STRONGLY suggests that people with schizophrenia are no more dangerous than the average population. Just thought I should weigh in as the resident psych-o.

    Right, but the victim was specifically described as dealing with a lot of violent and/or psychotic schitzophrenics, and the suspect was specifically described as a violent schitzoprhenic.
