Fla. Man Kills Roommate Over Toilet Paper

Tue Feb 21, 6:18 AM ET

MOSS BLUFF, Fla. - A man accused of fatally beating his roommate with a sledgehammer and a claw hammer because there was no toilet paper in their home has been arrested.

Franklin Paul Crow, 56, was charged Monday with homicide in the death of Kenneth Matthews, 58, according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office.

Capt. Thomas Bibb said Crow initially denied his involvement, but confessed during questioning.

Crow told investigators that the men were fighting about the toilet paper over the weekend when Matthews pulled out a rifle. Crow said he then began beating Matthews with the sledgehammer and claw hammer, according to an affidavit.

Matthews was beaten so badly he had to be identified through his fingerprints, detectives said.

Crow was being held at the Marion County jail without bond. It was not immediately known whether he had an attorney.

Feel free to skip this ....This week, your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds and is approximately 17.2 inches long. He's rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his bones are hardening. His skull, however, will stay soft until after birth, to make it easier to squeeze through the birth canal. You may be waddling a bit now, as your baby fills out even more of your belly.
As promised...belly shots.
Although they aren't much better because I had to take them myself. Sorry they are so blurry, but at least you get an idea how big and uncomfortable I am these days!

What a great Valentine's Day I had, considering Rob wasn't here! I came home and there were these two packages on my front porch!!!!!!! I could hardly wait to open them!! They were from Cupcake and Big Mama. I can't believe how unbelievably sweet these two woman are! Here is Crofton dying to get into the boxes. I hadn't even gotten his coat off yet and he was trying to tear into them!

This is a letter from Cupcake

This is me sampling one of her homemade cookies!

Look at all these goodies!!! The toffee squares were soooo good! Unfortunately, the box took weeks and weeks to get here, and most of it wasn't exactly fresh, but being pregnant, I managed to eat some of it anyway. I can tell they would have been sooo good when they were just baked!!
Thanks again Cupcake!!

And now for Big Mama's box!! I just about fell over when I saw all the stuff in it! It was FULL of all kinds of goodies!!

I absolutlely died laughing when I saw this! This may be one of the most thoughtful and creative things anyone has ever given me!!

Here's a better look at it. "Founding member of Window Lickers Anonymous" Shear brilliance!!

Of course she didn't forget the one in my here's a T-shirt for him too!! It says "Future member of Window Lickers Anonymous" All pre-shrunk and ready to go!!! Isn't that the best?

I ended up opening these up anyway, even though I swore to myself I wouldn't because by now I have already eaten a ton, but I just had to try them. And let me tell you.... They are delicious!!! I had to eventually back away from them.

How cool was this? I hand these out to homeless people, but here in Canada they are called Rockets... This could really confuse a few of the homeless people, but I think I will keep them for myself!

Lots of my favorite chocolate bars that you can't get in Canada!! Which rocked because I had just eaten the last one from Mel last week.

And then there were these Key Lime Cookies. (Which I am actually munching away on right now) They are just absolutely imposible to walk away from, let me tell you. When I got up to pee last night I had to go get one. Which ended up actually turning into 3.

Now last, but certainly NOT least...a T-shirt from Georgia!!! Like I said, i was completely blown away by my Valentine's Day boxes. Even though both Cupcake and Big Mama were upset that they took so long, I honestly don't thin they could have come on a better day!! Thank you sooo much you two!

That's right, I rock.....

I JUST SOLD OUR HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm soooo proud of myself! I've done soooo much while Rob has been
away, it's kinda silly! I'm so happy! I got more than I thought we would too! Our house was only on the market for 6 days!! How great is that? I was going to do a whole bunch of stuff tomorrow, but I think I should take the day off and have a play day with my son. How great does that sound? Hope you are all doing great! Rob comes home in 12 days! I can't wait!!

People have been asking how I'm feeling. I've been really tired and feeling really huge and uncomfortable. I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going though. Thank you all for your concern...I'm ok, just bagged. It's nice to be missed and not forgotten though! here's a shot from today as I am house hunting. Not a very good one. i will get a better one. I promise!

In other news, Crofton started walking yesterday. He is still pretty unstable, but he's doing great! Look how big he is!!!

this is a brilliant idea. click to enlarge to read sign.

Nothing like subliminal advertising right in the product lable. I didn't give in though. I stayed strong. I didn't drink it.
