From a blogger post of mine in 2005:

Now talk about a strange way to die. Only some poor fucker from Texas could have thought this one up.

From yesterday's Houston Chronicle -

Wife accused of giving man lethal sherry enema

By RICHARD STEWART

ANGLETON - Investigators say a Lake Jackson woman caused her husband's death by giving him a sherry enema, causing his blood alcohol level to surge to 0.47 percent - almost six times the legal intoxication limit.

Tammy Jean Warner, 42, was indicted on a charge of negligent homicide. She is also charged with burning the will of her late husband, Michael Warner, a month before his death in May.

Michael Warner, a 58-year-old machine shop owner, had a long history of alcoholism, but couldn't ingest alcohol because of medical problems with his throat, said Lake Jackson Police detective Robert Turner. The wine enema was a way he could become intoxicated without drinking alcohol, Turner said.

"I heard of this kind of thing in mortuary school in 1970, but this is the first time I've ever heard of someone actually doing it," Turner said.

Turner said police think she gave him at least two large bottles of sherry, which is stronger than wine, in the enema on May 21. "We're not talking about little bottles here," Turner said, "These were at least 1.5 liter bottles."

She told police that she later found him dead in his bed. Turner said she admitted giving him the sherry, but not of causing his death.

Tammy Warner surrendered to Lake Jackson police Monday and was released on $30,000 bond.

First, EW. And secondly, damn, how much do you have to want to get drunk to submit to an enema? Again, EW.

I have heard of people drowning in a cask of wine, but...

I have to say that anyone who agreed to administer alcohol to someone in this manner must be either exceptionally devoted or exceptionally kinky.

Teens have been inserting alcohol soaked tampons rectally and vaginally (which reportedly burns) to get drunk.

I've heard of that activity. I would think it stings pretty good.

You do find some quirky stuff!

The wife was probably helping the husband on his instruction. Shows what addiction can do!

Leaving aside the fact of the method of administration... who in their right mind would give someone two 1.5 liter bottles of sherry at once???? DUH that's going to kill a person.
