((One of the most bizarre crimes ever began innocently enough with an afternoon call for a pizza delivery. Brian Wells answered the call at about 1:30 Thursday August 28th and was told to come to a wooded construction site near a tv transmitter. Less than an hour later he was robbing a bank-after showing tellers the bomb around his neck. When he was arrested a few blocks away he told police about the bomb, placed there by strangers he said...before the detonation team arrived the bomb exploded killing Wells.
All along investigators hoped the collar device that locked the bomb to Wells neck would provide a clue as to the perpetrator. Now sources tell us the collar looks similar to an industrial pipe clamp--but still weren't sure it was commercially manufactured.
Then over the weekend a man who happens to live right next to that tv transmitter William Rothstine called police to say he had a man's body in a freezer in his basement, the murdered boyfriend of a woman he knows. When police arrived, in addition to the body, discovered Rothstine has a machine shop right behind his house--the kind of place a collar bomb might be made. All day yesterday investigators working behind a barricade carted away potential evidence....the local district attorney Brad Foulk downplayed connecting the two crimes.
