"Spam King" kills family, self

A great man and a madman died today. Guess whose passing is more tragic?

Just four days after escaping a federal minimum-security work camp, “Spam King” Eddie Davidson shot his wife and child and wounded a teen-age girl before turning the gun on himself.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of gunfire in the small plains town of Bennett at about 11:15 a.m. today and found Davidson, 29-year-old Amy Lee Ann Hill and their 3-year-old daughter shot to death.

The only ray of light in this story? Davidson’s 7-month-old son was left alive and will not remember his horrible father.
